Airmen, Soldiers share medical expertise Story and photo by Senior Airman Timothy Moore 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

Members of the 86th Medical Group tactical critical care evacuation team-enhanced and the 160th Forward Surgical team carry a training dummy to a simulated medical evacuation zone during joint FST training July 18 on Ramstein. Members of the 86th MDG TCCET-E and the 160th FST trained together to increase their interoperability.

Regardless of the branch a service member belongs to, capable and efficient medical staff are essential to getting injured personnel home safe. As the military becomes more integrated, the chances of medical teams being composed of members from multiple services learning and working with each other to better improve interoperability increases, and members of the 86th Medical Group tactical critical care evacuation team-enhanced and the 160th Forward Surgical Team got such a chance July 18 on Ramstein. “I have deployed with augmentees that were Air Force personnel,” said U.S. Army Maj. Gustavo Moreno, 160th FST commander. “They knew what to do because they had been training with the Army. “Medicine is medicine no matter the uniform you wear,” Moreno continued. “The Air Force has its unique mission that involves aircraft. We have a unique mission that involves going forward with combat units. The goal of today is to share our knowledge and learn new skills from each other.” The FST is a small mobile surgical unit to be positioned as far forward as possible to See MEDICINE, Page 3

AF focuses fourth round of VERA/VSIP on headquarters reductions WASHINGTON — In an effort to lead its force management actions with voluntary programs, the Air Force announced a fourth round of civilian workforce shaping measures that began Monday. This follows the recent Air Force announcement on headquarters organization and staffing reductions. Those changes are designed to eliminate redundant activities and improve

efficiencies while also satisfying previous secretary of defense direction to reduce management headquarters costs and staff levels by 20 percent. Voluntary early retirement authority and voluntary separation incentive pay will be used to realign and rebalance the civilian force during the round IV program. Round IV is largely focused on Headquarters Air Forceassigned civilian employees, primar-

ily located in the national capital region. Civilians at some major command locations who could be impacted by these changes will also participate. The remaining MAJCOMs will participate in a subsequent round. Civilian employees will receive VERA/VSIP interest surveys from their local civilian personnel sections on or about Monday and responses are due by Aug. 1, unless an earlier date is

established by local CPSs. Applicants approved for this round of VERA/ VSIP must separate no later than Sept. 30. “As the Air Force works to streamline the management framework regarding basic organization structures and associated business practices, some civilian positions at the See REDUCTIONS, Page 7

General says goodbye to USAREUR by Maj. Gen. Richard C. Longo U.S. Army Europe deputy commander


I have proudly served the U.S. Army and the American people as an Army officer for 34 years. Within those years I have raised a wonderful family, met courageous and inspiring people, and gained personal and professional fulfillment from this profession. It is fitting for Dianne and me to end our time in the Army here in Wiesbaden. We walked the same cobblestoned streets 32 years ago when I was a young lieutenant. We were married right downtown. We have been blessed to have spent so many years in Germany. My children call it home. I remain friends with my first Wiesbaden landlord from 1983. I have a signed basketball from the German National Championship Team in Bamberg in 2005. And I celebrated a Germany World Cup victory in the streets of Heidelberg in 2006. Germany has been a gracious host to us through the years. Not every day was enjoyable or comfortable, but we Soldiers would not have it any other way. As I depart, I have a few words to share, which might be pertinent. For young leaders, enforce stan-

dards professionally. Seek and embrace responsibility and challenge. The concept of mission command empowers and compels you to continually adapt and grow. Know your commander’s intent and get after it. Take care of your Soldiers. For noncommissioned officers, having these two very cool stars on my chest was kind of awesome, but it would never have happened if not for the gentle and sometimes not so gentle coaching by the very excellent NCOs I have been honored to be associated with. I am completely indebted to you. For field grade officers, especially those who are doing well, beware of your ambition. I’ve never rated a major or lieutenant colonel higher because he or she worked 20-hour days. On the contrary, senior leaders are most impressed by those who demonstrate the highest moral and ethical standards, balance their professional and personal lives, and execute intent with minimal guidance (i.e. “Message to Garcia”), and those who are team players who make everyone else around them better. For our senior colonels, know that your character influences scores of younger leaders. In this time of turbulence and uncertainty

for our more junior officers, they will be looking at you and asking themselves, “Is this worth it?” Your demeanor will answer the question for them. Know this and conduct yourself in a manner that you want your entire team to emulate. For general officers, I recommend you continue to learn every day. Maintain a humble servant leadership style that serves the units and Soldiers under your command, not one that lives to serve you. I have been fortunate in U.S. Army Europe to experience this level of leadership. And I am thankful for the genuine friendships. To our Army civilian employees, you provide the continuity we absolutely require during these

times of dynamic change. You have weathered the sequestration and living quarters allowance debacles with honor and grace, and I thank you for continuing to perform for the benefit of our Army and our Soldiers. To our Army’s spouses, continue to support, understand and challenge your partners as they pursue this career we all have grown to love. It is a career that, by definition, is one of sacrifice. And this necessarily creates hardships on the families we love. Thank you for sustaining our families in some of the most uncertain and difficult times in our Army’s history. And to our Soldiers, know that there are people of all ranks, from all branches and all backgrounds, who struggle each day to make the best decisions for our Army. We don’t get it right every time, but we are constantly trying to. You are “the Army.” You represent us so well and, without question, you are the reason I stayed in for these 34 years. I simply chose to spend the last three decades with people whose default is loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity and courage. I wouldn’t have had it any other way. It is you I will miss the most.

76th AS enables diplomacy in the 21st century by Lt. Col. Dan Mangan 76th Airlift Squadron commander Though World War I is historically called “The Great War,” its stories, lessons and anniversaries are often overlooked or forgotten and left in the shadows of other more “glorious” or more recent wars. Just recently we remembered the 70th anniversary

June 28 was the 100th anniversary of Gavrilo Princip’s assassination of Archduke Ferdinand and his wife, Duchess Sophie,

in Sarajevo. During the month that followed the mentally frail Princip’s dastardly and nearly bungled act, a Europe-wide diplomatic crisis ensued. Some say this single assassination was the catalyst for nearly a century of war, resulting in the deaths of untold millions.

macy that laid down the tinder for which Princip was ultimately the match. Ironically, decades of failed diplomacy aboard steamship, rail and horse came crashing down when Princip was able to assassinate Ferdinand and his wife in an automobile through the misfortune of a wrong turn by Ferdinand’s own car driver.

deliver surgical capability for injured service members who would be unable to survive a medical evacuation. The TCCET-E is designed to perform in-flight surgery on patients in critical lifethreatening conditions who cannot wait or are not close to an area with an adequate medical facility. The training focused on the FST mission, which requires the team to be able to set up and be capable of performing medical operations within a 90 minute timeframe. However, 160th FST mem-

bers did get to see part of the TCCET-E capabilities, particularly, those that allow them to deal with injuries at different elevations and air pressures. For many of the participants, this was a first look at the capabilities of what their counterparts could do, and for some U.S. Army ROTC cadets here as part of the Nurse Summer Training Program, this was a first seeing multiple services working closely together. “It’s very interesting to see how they adapt to the environment they are in,” said Cadet Tamara Lazaruk, U.S.

Army ROTC from Stephen F. Austin State University. “They can set this up in the middle of a forest, and it’s very interesting to see how they operate with one another. Also, I have never worked in a joint force before my internship, where I work with Air Force captains. It’s nice to see a different side of the military. They are no different than Army personnel.” Lazaruk and the seven other Army cadets here in the NSTP, who could potentially be assigned to an FST unit one day, were not the only ones to make the realization that all military medical per-

sonnel are on the same team, doing the same job. “Since we know these people and work shoulderto-shoulder with them in the operating room or the wards we notice that our job is the

same thing; we just call it something different,” Moreno said. “Why not train together? We all get something out of it; we become better professionals, and we make a much more integrated force.”

New law


German traffic law now requires one yellow or orange reflective vest in every car, truck or bus on German roads. A €15 fine will apply for violations. The vests must comply with German Standard DIN EN 471 or European Standard EN ISO 20471:2013. The vests must be worn in case of an accident or vehicle break-down to increase visibility of the people exiting the vehicle. It is recommended (although not required) to have one vest available for every vehicle occupant. Once out of the vehicle, immediately place the reflective warning triangle as required, get off the road as far as

possible (behind guard rails if present) and wait there for help to arrive.

School bags needed

The Protestant Parish Office Kaiserslautern is looking for school bags for students from needy families (mainly in first to fourth grade). Satchels, backpacks and other school bags are needed. Drop off location is the parish office (Evangelischer Gemeindedienst), Stiftsstrasse 2, 67655 Kaiserslautern (next to Stiftskirche). For more information, call 0631-36250913 or 0631-36250912.

Quad riding rules

Before bringing a quad and all-terrain vehicle to Germany or renting one locally, riders must be aware of the rules. Riders in Germany must be in possession of a class B (regular POV) driver’s license and wear a helmet. Quads registered in Germany — and that includes U.S. Army Europe-registered vehicles — may be driven on all public roads. Riding on the autobahn is only permissible if the maximum allowed speed for the vehicle is over 60 kilometers per hour. Roads and trails designated for agricultural or forestry vehicles only are off limits for quads unless riders have prior permission from the local forestry office. Off-roading is prohibited in Germany. As a general rule, riding a quad is only allowed where it is also legal to drive a car. There are very few off-road quad areas in Germany, and none of them are in the local area. The closest quad area is in Saverne, France, which is 85 kilometers from Kaiserslautern.

mand and much more within their respective units. Though trained to handle the kickoff and main body of the various ceremonies, project officers work hand-in-hand with protocol for their keen eye, expertise and extensive knowledge. “We couldn’t do it without the support from the project officers,” said Tech. Sgt. Raul Rodriguez, 86th AW protocol member. “They let us know what type of event they are in charge of, and then we work together on the itinerary to ensure every possible variable has been taken care of.

Kaiserslautern American “There will be times when a project officer comes to us with only a few days to prepare a DV visit or ceremony and we have to provide about a month’s worth of information in one briefing,” Rodriguez continued. Originally a maintainer, Rodriguez was searching for new ways to challenge himself; he felt the best way to do that was to hang up his wrench for teaspoons. “I always look for new ways to challenge myself, and nothing is so far out of my original spectrum of work like protocol,” Rodriguez said. “When I worked on the flightline, I only saw what I was doing right then and

to the hospital, his driver made a wrong turn down a dead-end street, where the feebleminded socialist Princip had placed himself to make the assassination attempt (a tragic coincidence, as Ferdinand’s route would not normally have delivered him to Princip). When the archduke’s driver discovered his mistake, he put the car in reverse and accidentally stalled the engine. Princip then walked up and shot the archduke and duchess at point blank range, igniting a century of bloodshed. July 28, 1914, is widely accepted as the beginning date of World War I — a war that resulted in the deaths of 9 million people and laid the framework for another disastrous world conflict that would ensue, historically speaking, mere moments later. In turn resulting in the death of tens of millions more as well as bringing the partitioning of Europe, the march of communism and the Cold War, this claimed the lives of or enslaved millions more either directly or through proxy wars. Many historians would say this was all sparked by a single assassination 100 years ago in Sarajevo and the failure of diplomacy that surrounded it before and after. The 76th Airlift Squadron at Ramstein looks back In the tumultuous decades leading up to Prinicip’s assassination of Ferdinand and his wife, diplomacy was often accomplished with a hand-penned letter delivered at the speed of a steamship, rail or horse, rarely face-to-face by national leaders. At the same time, the murderous technologies of mustard gas, trench warfare and the machine gun were already racing past the slow, bureaucratic pace of diplomacy. Could world events have been different if nations had high-speed diplomacy to cool tensions and bring national leaders face-to-face within hours, or even minutes? The unbelievably complicated machinations between the nations of the Allies and the Central Powers proved to be a Gordian knot for the then painfully slow steamship, rail and horse-drawn diploma-

there. But being able to see the other side of how the Air Force functions, now allows me to see the big picture.” Tasked with a multitude of events throughout the year, the protocol Airmen continue to grow not only their skill sets and knowledge but ability to work as a team, allowing them to complete the numerous events on their not-so-trivial whiteboard. “We really do have the sharpest of the sharp,” Bracher said. “The Airmen on this staff, no matter their background, will adapt to the challenges ahead of them. There is no

cy. For Western Europe, then intoxicated by Victorian-era imperialism, the easiest apparent way to cut that knot was war. Slow-speed diplomacy had utterly failed. One wonders if the near-instantaneous diplomatic response offered by today’s U.S. Air Forces in Europe, postured “Ready, Forward, Now,” might have been able to cool things down. Today, we are watching brushfires in many of the same areas that were troubled in World War I. Everything old is new again. As a result of the war, the Russian empire was dissolved, resulting in chaos in Eastern Europe, the Balkans, Ukraine and Crimea. World War I resulted in the destruction and dissolution of the Ottoman Empire, which for centuries had held together key regions in North Africa and the Middle East, including Iraq. From Tripoli, Bengazi and Damascus to Baghdad, many of those formerly Ottoman Empire-controlled regions were partitioned and descended into enduring chaos. The artificial borders painted across a tribal, broken region because of failed diplomacy haunt the Middle East and the world to this day. On this grim anniversary of the outbreak of World War I, many of these regions still simmer with the tensions ignited by the failures of diplomacy that turned this single assassination into a catalyst for global war. One century later, here at the 76th Airlift Squadron at Ramstein Air Base, we have the best aircrews and mission support Airmen in the Air Force. We enable diplomacy by providing world-class executive airlift to our nation’s leaders in the same hot spots that simmered 100 years ago. And today, our Airmen do not make “wrong turns” down “blind alleys” as did the ill-fated driver of Ferdinand’s car. The failed horse-paced diplomacy that contributed to a century of war 100 years ago is a thing of the past. Now, present-day diplomacy is enabled by Ramstein’s 76th Airlift Squadron, which safely, comfortably and reliably delivers our nation’s leaders to these troubled regions. With the 76th AS, diplomacy has a faster horse. Ready, Forward, Now!

Page 11 room for failure when we need people that can present themselves appropriately, know computer skills, are capable of directing high-level foreign and domestic officials, and much more. “The best thing about being a part of this office is when I come in and I hear everybody laughing,” Bracher continued. “In through the midst of all the hard work, pressure and stress of getting the job done they are still able to have fun and enjoy themselves. You really get a sense that they love what they do, and it shows every day in the products they deliver to Ramstein.”

Acting VA secretary outlines problems, actions taken WASHINGTON — In testimony before the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs July 15, Acting VA Secretary Sloan D. Gibson outlined serious problems regarding access to health care and key actions the department has taken to get veterans off waiting lists and into clinics. “The trust that is the foundation of all we do — the trust of the veterans we serve, and the trust of the American people and their elected representatives — has eroded,” Gibson said. “We have to earn that trust back through deliberate and decisive action, and by creating an open and transparent approach for dealing with our stakeholders to better serve veterans.” Gibson discussed six priorities to begin restoring trust: • Get veterans off wait-lists and into clinics. • Fix systemic scheduling problems. • Address cultural issues. • Hold people accountable where willful misconduct or management negligence are documented. • Establish regular and ongoing disclosures of information. • Quantify the resources needed to consistently deliver timely, high-quality health care. Gibson said the VA needs about $17.6 billion in additional resources to meet current demand for the remainder of fiscal year 2014 through fiscal year 2017. The funding, he added, would address challenges such as clinical staff, space, information technology and the benefits process-

ing necessary to provide timely, high-quality care and benefits. “We understand the seriousness of the problems we face,” Gibson said. “We own them. We are taking decisive action to begin to resolve them. We can turn these challenges into the greatest opportunity for improvement in the history of the department.” Gibson also outlined actions VA is taking now to address problems with access to VA health care: • The Veterans Health Administration has reached out to more than 160,000 veterans to get them off wait-lists and into clinics. VHA also has made more than 543,000 referrals for veterans to receive care in the private sector — 91,000 more than in the comparable period a year ago. • VHA facilities are adding more clinic hours, aggressively recruiting to fill physician vacancies, deploying mobile medical units, using temporary staffing resources, and expanding the use of private-sector care. • VA is moving rapidly to augment and improve its existing scheduling system while simultaneously pursuing the purchase of a state-of-the-art system. • Gibson has directed medical center and network directors to conduct monthly inspections, in person, of their clinics to assess the state of scheduling practices and to identify any related obstacles to timely care for veterans. To date, more than 1,100 of these visits have been conducted. See health care, Page 20

Capt. Spanky’s off-leash tour

Hey, everybody! I’m here once again to report on my most recent expedition. Like any other day, I was scratching at my human’s leg for food when she said two of the most marvelous words in the world: Italy and pizza! Oh how I’ve dreamt of wrapping my jowls around some delicious pizza straight from Italy. After almost 10 hours of driving, I couldn’t hold the excitement in for much longer. Finally coming to a stop my human announced, “Welcome to Pisa!” Thinking she was slurring, I expected to jump out and be surrounded by a town made of pizza and specifically the leaning tower of pizza, but what I saw was far better. In front of me stood a beautiful monument towering only 60 meters in the air with a slight tilt — the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Before entering the tower I learned that the famous bell tower was not purposely built at a lean but began to drift to its side during construction. It made me think about what it would have been like making a mistake

people could see 835 years later. Once we finally walked up to the tower I was excited to put my fuzzy paw onto that first step, but was halted by the gate keeper. As he stood there arms crossed, he stated no one under the age of 8 was allowed entrance. Flashing my dog tag, he was able to see that in dog years I was more than old enough to climb the shiny marble steps, so off I went trotting up leaving nothing behind but my drool. Once I got to the top vertigo hit hard as I looked down and felt as though I could touch the people attempting to “push” the tower over for a photo. Though a magnificent scene, I had to quickly rush down before I lost that morning’s kibble. Now on the ground I gazed up at the beautiful masterpiece wondering how I could honor my adventure. Only one thing came to mind. I lifted my hind leg to match the tower’s tilt and with pride claimed that small patch of land as my own, then, of course, enjoyed some of the best salami pizza I have ever had in my life.

7th CSC Soldiers mentor KSF HAZMAT Unit by Sgt. 1st Class Matthew Chlosta 7th Civil Support Command Public Affairs PRISTINA, Kosovo — Soldiers from the 7th Civil Support Command’s 773rd Civil Support Team helped the Kosovo Security Force’s Civil Protection Regiment HAZMAT Company build a nuclear, biological and chemical detection equipment storage room here and develop standard operating procedures for the room, July 6 to 19. The Kosovo HAZMAT team’s current missions include civil protection and to assist their government’s authorities in response to natural disasters and emergency incidents. “From the last training we had from DTRA and the 773rd CST back in May, we saw that learning how to properly build a (nuclear, biological and

chemical) detection equipment storage room is necessary for us to learn,” said Sgt. Bajram Peci, leader decontamination station, 1st Platoon, HAZMAT Co., CPR, KSF. Personnel from DTRA, EUCOM and the U.S. Embassy in Kosovo put together a list of equipment they would need to perform their functional HAZMAT duties, said Sgt. Eric Song, survey team member, 773rd CST, 7th CSC. “We’re working alongside Sergeant Peci and his team to also set up an NBC detection equipment storage room for some of the sensitive items that may be included,” said Staff Sgt. John Bennetts, survey team chief, 773rd CST, 7th CSC. In the future, KSF HAZMAT Company Soldiers will also store CBRN analysis and detection equipment in the new NBC storage room. “It is necessary, because all of the equipment is expen-

sive and sensitive and has to be secured,” Peci said. The two NCOs worked for four days to help create the standard operating procedures. “We’re also writing the procedures on how the Kosovo military will properly maintain the detection equipment as well as how to store, maintain and account for it,” Bennetts said. “They’re motivated, actively engaged, listened and implemented everything we’ve taught them.” As the NBC equipment storage room progressed and the procedures were reviewed, the NCOs complimented each other and voiced their excitement with an eye toward possible future joint CBRN and HAZMAT training. “It’s good to be with professional CBRN Soldiers,” Peci said. “I would like to continue this professional relationship and training in the future with the U.S. CBRN unit.”

21st TSC showcases capabilities during Rheinland-Pfalz Tag Story and photo by Staff Sgt. Warren W. Wright Jr. 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs NEUWIED, Germany — Soldiers from the 21st Theater Sustainment Command showed off their various capabilities during a Rheinland-Pfalz state-sponsored fair July 18 to 20 here. Rheinland-Pfalz Tag is an annual event that takes place in a different city in the state each year, bringing together people from all across the state in order to showcase the many various state institutions and organizations within Rheinland-Pfalz. Representing the 21st TSC this year were the 5th Quartermaster Theater Aerial Delivery Company, the 7th Civil Support Command’s Medical Support Unit-Europe and 773rd Civil Support Team, the 30th Medical Brigade’s 212th Combat Support Hospital, and the Theater Logistics Support Center-Europe. “We’re here supporting our higher command and conducting community engagement,” said Capt. Hubert Little, medical operations officer from the 773rd CST. “We’re letting (the locals) see what our capabilities are and what we bring to the table as a partner. It allows them to see how we’re supporting Germany and our allies.” For the 21st TSC, working closely with its German partners is a daily occurrence, and Rheinland-Pfalz-Tag provided an excellent opportunity to emphasize that to the participants. “One of our main missions is to work in collaboration with the Germans and the other nations within Europe,” said Capt. Jessica Taylor, physician assistant with the MSU-E.

“We do a lot, and the more we can get our face out there and show that we’re helping will help build better relationships within our community.” For some, the American military in Germany is a mystery. By participating in the 2014 Rheinland-Pfalz-Tag, the 21st TSC is able to break down the barriers of its fences and show the local nationals everyone is a part of the same community. “Sometimes it seems like we sit behind walls most of the time,” said Maj. Neil Hurd, nurse and anesthetist with the 212th CSH. “I’m sure it’s kind of a mystery to them what we do and maybe even a little scary that we’re in their country. By getting out here we can show them that what we do is meant to do good.” Rheinland-Pfalz-Tag gave the various contributing 21st TSC units the opportunity to highlight their specific and unique missions to the participants of the annual event. The displays at the event included paratroopers from the 5th QM demonstrating how to properly pack a parachute, Soldiers from the 773rd CST showcasing their decontamination equipment, medical specialists from the 212th CSH exhibiting their field hospital equipment, Soldiers with the MSU-E with their medical simulator mannequins, and apprentices with the TLSC-E highlighting some of the unique training they receive. “Our capabilities are kind of special,” said Sgt. Edwin Schimmer, parachute rigger from the 5th QM. “We want to show everyone that there’s another side to the military where we can provide humanitarian relief as well as dropping equipment to fight war. “We’re not just here to be the

big, bad Army,” Schimmer continued. “We’re here to show everyone that we’re also a part of the community.” Additionally, Soldiers participating in the event had the opportunity to get to know their neighbors in the community in which they live. “It’s important for not only my Soldiers, but for everyone to get out here and demonstrate the capabilities between ourselves and our partner nations, the similarities between our training and the ways we can help foster a good environment for our community here in Germany,” Schimmer said. Pfc. Molly Parr, also a parachute rigger from the 5th QM, said she agrees. “Because we live in the community, it’s important for us to show them that we’re friendly,” Parr said. “They’ve been so welcoming to us, and it’s important that we do the same.”

Sgt. Edwin Schimmer, parachute rigger with the 5th Quartermaster Theater Aerial Delivery Company, 21st Theater Sustainment Command, rigs a parachute to a German participant of the 2014 Rheinland-Pfalz Tag. Soldiers with the 21st TSC participated in the three-day, state-sponsored event in order to showcase their capabilities.

Burg Jazz Nanstein Castle in Landstuhl will be the stage for the traditional international Burg Jazz music festival today and Saturday. High quality musicians will again fascinate the audience with “keep on swinging — big band jazz, rock, blues, Dixieland and soul music,â€? said Willi Ningelgen from the Unnerhaus Culture Club, who will sponsor the17th anniversary jazz festival inside the atmospheric courtyard of Nanstein Castle. Organizers expect visitors from throughout the KMC, Germany and Europe. Car parking is in easy walking distance to the castle, and food and beverages will be served at the castle. The festival is going to kick off at 7 p.m. today with the ďŹ rst evening top act presenting one of Europe’s top blues bands, Funky B & The Kings of Shufe from Germany performing a fascinating acoustic blues session with one of Europe’s best Hammond B-3 organ players, Markus Lauer. He accompanied Phil Guy and Big Joe Turner on their European tours. “Their funky blues themes combine phrases of jazz, funk, soul and rock with fascinating emotions and grooving sound. The audience will be thrilled by their musical talent,â€? Ningelgen said. They will be followed by the big top act of Friday evening, The Swinging Fireballs from Bremen, Germany. Their theme is “Come and Fly with us.â€? The show will continue with the ďŹ nest Las Vegas Casino air and Kansas City Swing music, adding Mambo and Brazil fever to it and the hot-dance elements from the 1920s and 1930s. They bring back the real prime time of great American traditional jazz music. The ďŹ rst day will come to a close with a performance by the local stars Smitty, Molly and Corinna in the Castle Battery Tower around midnight. On Saturday, the festival will continue at 6 p.m. with the New Orleans Preachers from France. Their inspiring marching sound leads the audience directly into the streets of New Orleans where the music of the brass-bands walking along the streets has been part of the sound of the Mississippi-metropolis since the beginning of jazz.

ROTC nurses gain experience at LRMC by Taylor Massey Landstuhl Regional Medical Center Public Affairs


or 16 future Army nurse corps officers, it was an opportunity to experience situations in a combat hospital that they could have only dreamed about throughout nursing school. These top cadets were selected from numerous colleges in the United States to participate in the Nurse Summer Training Program at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center. The program is offered to students before their senior year of nursing school. It is a one-month internship for future Army nurses that requires the cadets to complete 150 hours of clinical work and prepare a group project about the Patient Caring Touch System to present at graduation. This program allows the cadets to transfer their academic knowledge to actual patient treatment. As each cadet shadows a nurse from the hospital in many different departments, they are exposed to clinical skills as well as the duties and responsibilities of being an Army nurse corps officer. Though LRMC is the most desired location for cadets to select, only two groups of eight are chosen to participate at the hospital. There are 19 other locations to choose from in the U.S., but the cadets feel the experience at a combat hospital as well as in a different country would be the most significant for the internship. These cadets stay at the Medical Transient Detachment on Landstuhl and are given the opportunity to explore Germany during their visit. The first group of eight cadets, who recently completed the program, worked throughout the hospital wards with all types of nurses. In addition to working at the hospital, the cadets experienced in-bound and out-bound flights at the Contingency Aeromedical Staging Facility on Ramstein where they worked first hand receiving service members from

downrange and preparing them for their journey back home. Four of the cadets, who participated in the emergency room, labor and delivery, intensive care unit, and pediatric clinic, spoke about their experience during their one-month adventure at LRMC. Ashley Ross, a senior at Radford University in Virginia, was assigned to the ER at LRMC. Ross said she began her nursing career because the personal relationship she has with God influenced her to pursue her dream of helping people. She also has a full-ride scholarship for nursing and intends to produce the highest quality performance throughout her schooling. Ross said her experience at LRMC is one she would not trade for the world. As she worked alongside her instructor, she was able to accomplish a lot of interactive practice with IVs (which is something she had not yet done) and patient evaluations. She said she really enjoyed the fact the staff was constantly challenging her to be her best self, even in situations when she was slightly uncomfortable. Ross said this opportunity has better prepared her for a career as an Army nurse because she was able to experience the combination of the military and medical worlds, taking in all the techniques, strategies and skills of patient care and treatment. She said a memorable experience she will not forget is the work she was able to do with the team at the CASF during an out-bound mission to send wounded warriors back to their families. Chelsea Farquhar, a senior at Northern Michigan University, was assigned to the labor and delivery ward. Farquhar said she has been a nursing major since her freshman year of college, as she has always had a passion for the nursing field. She said an officer at her college orientation influenced her decision toward a medical military career, where she will have more options with getting involved in emergency and critical patient care.

Farquhar said the most important aspect of her experience at LRMC has been the opportunity to interact with every branch of the military and observe everyone working together, along with the chance to hear the different experiences, opinions and influences of the combined medical and military personnel. Farquhar said she has assisted during births, something she would not have the opportunity to do during nursing school. Farquhar also said being in Germany has been extremely valuable to her experience because she has been able to immerse herself in the culture of another country and incorporate that knowledge into her patient care. Samantha Wilhelm, a junior at the University of Memphis, was assigned to the ICU. Wilhelm comes from a long line of military personnel and described her family as her main influence when getting into the military medical field. Wilhelm said her experience at LRMC has been incredible and somewhat indescribable. She has participated in a lot of hands-on work with critical care patients and will take home knowledge of clinical skills she exercised during the program and apply them during her duration of nursing school. Wilhelm, with the supervision of her preceptor, was given the opportunity to continuously work hands on and practice skills such as implementing IVs and performing critical assessments. She said she noticed an immense difference between military and civilian hospitals in the aspect of all the staff knowing their roles, but still being able to produce mass amounts of information to the cadets in different areas. Wilhelm said the most valuable and memorable part of this program has been the time she has gotten to work with the wounded warriors and their families. She said she is thankful she was given the chance to extend her experience and work with such a knowledgeable and encouraging staff. Anna Lamb, a senior at Grand Canyon University, was assigned to the pediatric clinic. She said she has always had a passion to serve and admires the intimacy a nurse shares with their patients. She said the CNA course she was involved in

solidified her desire to enter the nursing field. Coming from a long military family line and being impressed from experiences of former ROTC nurses, Lamb realized taking her passion of medicine and combining it with a career in the military was her goal. Lamb described LRMC as a teaching hospital, where the staff was always willing to help and share their own experiences. This environment taught her there are never too many questions and there is always room to learn. Lamb said she was challenged with adjusting to the schedule of a nurse and found that every person in the hospital setting has their own way of doing things, and it is important to be flexible in order to accommodate. She said she has most enjoyed the experience of inserting herself in the mixture of military and medicine because she does not receive that experience at school. During her time in the pediatric clinic, she learned how to care for small children, as she describes they are “new to the world of medicine� and have to be cared for in a different manner than adult patients. She said the most memorable experience for her in Germany was the work she did with the CASF during an outbound flight to send service members back to the states. Heather Schniepp, preceptor of the pediatrics department, said NSTP is such a valuable experience for the cadets because it is a very rare opportunity to receive hands-on experience during nursing school. She said they are exposed to different types of nursing during their time at LRMC and must use different nursing skills and strategies throughout the process. She describes the difficulty nursing students have to gain a wide variety of experience, but these cadets are able to do so being in Germany. Schniepp said the cadets have great skills and knowledge coming in, but are able to put them to use working at a hospital, especially at one that is mixed with both military and civilian patients. LRMC is the largest American hospital outside of the U.S. and has recently been verified as a Level III Trauma Center by the American College of Surgeons. LRMC provides medical care for more than 200,000 U.S. military personnel and their families within the European region. LRMC is also the evacuation and treatment facility for all injured U.S. service members and civilians injured downrange, as well as service members from neighboring coalition forces.

How your digital signature will stop PII leaks by 1st Lt. Meredith Hein 24th Air Force Public Affairs JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIOLACKLAND, Texas — Members of 24th Air Force are refurbishing an old email tool to help Air Force users reduce breaches of personally identifiable information, or PII. The Digital Signature Enforcement Tool, or DSET, which currently prompts users to provide a digital signature when an email contains an active hyperlink or attachment, is being reconfigured to scan emails and attachments for PII. DSET was first introduced to Microsoft Outlook in 2009 by the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center. “DSET was originally designed to mitigate risk from socially-engineered email or phishing attacks. Now, it provides some protection of messages transmitting PII,” said Alonzo Pugh, a cyberbusiness system analyst for 24th AF. “The tool provides awareness for users of risks before the email leaves

the workstation, giving users the chance to correct the identified risk.” PII includes items such as an individual’s social security number, driver’s license information and financial information. Breaches occur when this information is inadvertently released. User awareness is one of the biggest issues associated with PII breaches, Pugh said. “When users release PII that is not protected, that puts information at risk for being intercepted by adversaries,” he said. “These adversaries can then use that information to target users to gain access to the network. Air Force network users must do their due diligence when sending an email containing PII. They need to make sure the information is protected.” DSET capability should encourage users to be more involved in the process of preventing PII breaches, Pugh said. “The user is afforded the ability to take action in checking their emails to make sure they are not inadvertently releasing PII, and given the

Flag football sign-ups

opportunity to protect it. DSET makes users more aware that they need to double check their emails and ensure that they are in accordance with policy; the responsibility for preventing breaches ultimately falls on them.” The tool itself is straightforward to use, Pugh said, and will give users simple prompts to follow in sending emails. In addition, there is a function allowing information which was falsely identified as PII to still be sent. “While our software solution will support the Air Force’s efforts to reduce PII breaches, it is still important for personnel to be aware and vigilant with their handling of documents containing PII,” said Col. Eric Oliver, the 24th Air Force director of cyber systems. The tool’s new usage is still in its initial stage, focusing on social security numbers. Developers hope that DSET will ultimately be able to scan for a variety of PII to prevent future breaches. “It is imperative that we protect

one another as we move each Air Force mission forward,” said Maj. Gen. J. Kevin McLaughlin, the 24th Air Force commander. “Avoiding the release of PII is part of being a good wingman, but it is also part of protecting the network and accomplishing the Air Force mission.” In preparation for the release of DSET, you can access training for the new tool using the following link: https://afpki.lackland.af.mil/assets/ files/OE-15-40-064_QRG-DSET_ v0001.pdf. Additional training on how to encrypt Microsoft Office documents can be accessed at www.24af. af.mil/shared/media/document/ AFD-140701-064.pdf. Users have multiple tools at their disposal to protect PII if encrypting email is not feasible, but if electronic transmission of sensitive PII is operationally required, users can leverage approved Department of Defense file exchange services at: https://safe. amrdec.army.mil/safe.

Now is the time to sign up for unit level flag football. Registration is open now through Aug. 6.
