PLOVDIV, Bulgaria — More than 600 Airmen from the 86th Airlift and 435th Air Ground Operations wings and members of the Bulgarian armed forces participated in a two-week flying training deployment called Thracian Summer, July 7 through 21. Thracian Summer was an opportunity for the militaries of both nations to train together and strengthen partnerships. Training in Bulgaria also gave members of Team Ramstein the opportunity to get training they don’t normally get in Germany. “Bulgarian airspace allows us to fly in various terrains at low altitudes and practice solid formation flying,” said Maj. Jon Cato, 37th Airlift Squadron pilot. “In other places, whether in Germany or in the U.S., there’s a lot of restrictions to the airspace that aren’t present here.” Training with the Bulgarians allowed both nations to fulfill training requirements that benefit each other. “This is the fifth time in the last four years we’ve been able to do this training. It’s very important training for us,” said Bulgarian Col. Iavor Mateev, Ministry of Defense paratrooper. “This training gives our special forces and conventional para-

Commander explains science of planning


by Col. Raymond E. Briggs Jr. 86th Maintenance Group commander Dwight Eisenhower would often quote 19th century Prussian field marshal Helmuth von Moltke the elder by stating, “Plans are nothing; planning is everything.” Von Moltke also wrote, “No plan of operations extends with any certainty beyond the first contact with the main hostile force,” which we have reduced to the axiom, “No plan survives first contact with the enemy.” Eisenhower and von Moltke realized there is no “perfect plan” that will be executed from A to Z without alteration, particularly when in contact with hostile forces. The process of planning was far more critical than any single plan. Air Force fighter pilot and military strategist Col. John Boyd saw the planning process as the O.O.D.A. loop: observe the situation, orient yourself within the situation, decide a course of action, and act. Boyd contended the combatant who can perform this process the fastest will most likely be victorious in battle. In other words, the best planning process provides the best chance of victory over an opponent. That’s great advice if you are a military commander engaged directly with an enemy or generating air tasking orders from the Combined Air Operations Center. Even while deployed, only a fraction of us are in direct contact with the enemy, and even fewer generate military plans. Most of us come to work each day and perform “our job.” That is, we exercise the skills of our Air Force Specialty Code through a series of specific tasks. We also have additional military requirements for training, readiness, fitness and organizational sustaining activities that are beyond our AFSC, but combined with our primary job, these activities make up the majority of our work time. Do Eisenhower, von Moltke and Boyd have anything to offer for our daily chores? We can start to

answer that by asking another question, “Do you have a plan for your daily work?” Another way to look at a plan for daily work is to have “standard work.” Do you have technical orders, Air Force Instructions, checklists, process diagrams, smart books, or other aids that lay out how work is to be performed? Do you know who produced the standard work? If it can be improved, do you know who to contact and how to get it changed? The 86th Maintenance Squadron completed an Air Force Smart Operations for the 21st Century event on performing major aircraft inspection and repair activities known as isochronal inspections. From this event, they created a plan for each hour of the two-week inspection period. They can tell you exactly what work should be performed between 10 and 11 a.m. Sept. 26. They also know the condition of the aircraft is not likely to be exactly as expected, so they have a process for adjusting the plan based on initial findings. In this case, the “enemy” is the unknown information about the condition of the aircraft. The goal, i.e. winning the battle, is to keep each aircraft on schedule, regardless of the unknown. If you don’t have a plan or standard work, the AFSO21 eight-step process is a great tool to help solve a problem, make an improvement, or generate a basic plan. It’s been around for a number of years, but I’ve found few Airmen who are truly proficient at it, yet those who are good at it can tackle some impressively large and complex problems. The eight steps are outlined as 1) clarify and validate the problem, 2) break down the problem/identify performance gaps, 3) set improvement targets, 4) determine root cause, 5) develop countermeasures, 6) see countermeasures through, 7) confirm results and process, and 8) standardize successful processes. The AFSO21 playbook directly maps the eight steps to Boyd’s O.O.D.A. loop, but eight steps can be modified to meet the needs

with their jump training and it builds a relationship as well as strengthens their participation with NATO.” Members of the 435th Contingency Response Group facilitated jump training for the Bulgarian paratroopers during Thracian Summer. “It’s all about building partnership capacity, showing them our standards and learning about how they do including insert or supplements, does not constitute endorsement by the DOD, the Department of the Air Force or the AdvantiPro GmbH of the products or the services advertised.

and taste of individuals. It is more important to solve the problem at hand than perfectly match the steps from the AFSO21 playbook. I’ve seen this and modified versions of the method used successfully for making life and career plans. What’s your goal for your next promotion? What will you do to get selected for the prestigious opportunity, school or program? What are your education goals, and are you on track? How can you quit smoking? I’ve personally used an eight-step method to make lifealtering choices about diet and exercise in order to stop taking prescription medication. It took 14 months, and the plan was modified several times, but I eventually achieved success. Now my plan is for daily sustainment, but I still have a plan for healthy living. Any goal you wish to achieve, any problem to be solved, and any process to be improved can benefit from proper eight-step analysis and planning. Effective analysis will lead to answering some very tough questions. What major and minor steps are needed to achieve the goal? How do you know if you are straying from the plan, and what will you do about it? How often should the plan be updated? What are the measures of success? For example, to make staff sergeant the first time (goal), I need to study four hours a week during the next 12 months (plan). Studying four hours a week is easier to manage than saying one needs to study 200 hours this year, and it’s easy to know if you’re achieving the baby steps each week. The eight-step process is one way to bring the lessons of Eisenhower, von Moltke and Boyd to our daily work and with achieving our life goals. The method is just one of many powerful tools from the AFSO21 tool box. I strongly recommend you get to know and use the eight-step process, as well as other AFSO21 techniques. You will be amazed at how they can help you achieve excellence in things big and small.

Innovator of the month

Innovator: Sortie Support Flight (pictured: Senior Airman Markus Alleyne) Unit: 86th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron Action: As a team, the flight introduced and initiated an alternate method to ship parts, which saved four hours per asset. They created a priority model to cut the replenishment of 970 low-use items and reduced spending by $5,648 per week. They forged prepackaged aircraft armor kits that eliminated a need to reach back from other locations for the parts. The kits recouped two man-hours and decreased install times by 30 percent. Additionally, they worked to preserve $527,851 by conceptualizing fiscal year 2014 funds and having the program approved by Air Force leaders. Finally, the flight created a deicer plan to eventually save $880 in daily fuel cost.

Remembering a fellow Airman TIMO

(born Dec. 12, 2003, died July 18, 2013) Timo was diagnosed with untreatable cancer and was put down July 18 after giving seven years of his life to the U.S. Air Force as a military working dog. He became a military working dog in August 2006 after completing patrol detector training at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas. After his training, he was assigned to Ramstein. This amazing dog has served two tours at Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar, in 2007 and 2008 and one tour at Kuwait City International Airport, Kuwait, in 2010. When Timo was at home he ensured the KMC was safe and secure by doing outstanding work with his handler. He provided the best detection work for many U.S. leaders, including the president, vice president, secretary of defense, secretary of state and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. “Timo was one of the best military working dogs when it came to detection and patrol capabilities,” said Tech. Sgt. Nicholas Ramsey, 86th Security Forces Squadron military working dog section’s NCOIC. “The Air Force has lost a valuable defender.” His most recent handler was Staff Sgt. Zachery Hons, from October 2011 to July 2013. “Timo, you will be truly missed. Thank you for your service,” Hons said.

Air Force undertakes forceshaping initiatives


he Air Force ended fiscal year 2012 with 159 Airmen over end strength and anticipates ending fiscal year 2013 at or marginally over end strength. The fiscal year 2014 budget requests active duty end strength at 327,600, which is a further reduction of 1,860 from fiscal year 2013 active duty authorized end strength. As a result, the Air Force is implementing the following voluntary force management programs. For the enlisted force, waivers for activeduty service commitments, time-in-grade waivers, enlistment contract waivers and expanded Palace Chase transfers to the Air National Guard or Air Force Reserve are available options. For the officer corps, time-in-grade and active-duty service commitment waivers will be offered to eligible career fields. New for this year will be an ADSC waiver of up to 12 months for Senior and Intermediate Developmental Education. Likewise, Palace Chase and the 10 to eight years of commissioned service waivers will continue to be offered. The 786th Force Support Squadron’s Military Personnel Flight will be hosting town hall meetings to discuss the programs offered and answer questions regarding each of the programs. The meetings will be in the Hercules Theater at 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. Tuesday, and 2 p.m. Wednesday. If you are unable to attend the briefings and would like to learn more about these programs, you can visit the myPers website at https://mypers.af.mil and enter “Force Management” in the search window. You can also visit your local Military Personnel Flight Career Development Section in Bldg. 2106, Suite 312, on Ramstein. For questions, email 786fss.dpmas@us.af.mil.

Stay connected with social media without sacrificing career by Airman 1st Class Zachary Vucic Air Force News Service FORT GEORGE G. MEADE, Md. — Engaging in social media can be a positive experience that entertains, keeps people connected and allows opinions to be expressed on a wide variety of topics. In some cases though, social media can ruin personal reputations or careers, and create an open window for criminals to access personal information. According to the Air Force’s top social media expert, safe use of socialmedia outlets is simple — use common sense. Tanya Schusler is the chief of social media for the Air Force Public Affairs Agency, Joint Base San Antonio-

Graphic by Sylvia Saab

Lackland, Texas. She said in many cases, problems arise when people are “too trusting” with their personally identifiable information. “It can be something as simple

as sharing your location when visiting your favorite store or restaurant,” Schusler said. “This tells your social network one critical piece of information — you’re not home.”

To take full advantage of social media, and still post to Facebook and tweet to friends safely, Schusler offered the following advice: Many Airmen cause issues by posting photographs of themselves violating appearance standards, acting inappropriately and most importantly, violating operational security protocol. If you’re not within regulations, don’t post it. Airmen should not post information about deployments or photos of secure areas within their workplace. Even if the Airman takes the information down shortly after posting, someone has already seen it. The information can be printed, screen captured, copied etc. Once information is released to the Internet, it’s there permanently. When posting personal opinions See SOCIAL MEDIA, Page 15

DFAS answers LQA questions by Capt. Reba Good U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa Public Affairs fficials from Defense Finance and Accounting Services addressed civilian employees affected by the living quarters allowance audit during a town hall meeting Monday on Ramstein. “We work for you,” said Aaron Gillison, director of DFAS Indianapolis. “We’re a trusted agent to make this process as smooth as possible to render the best decision on behalf of you: employees who work for our government.” Gillison and his team traveled to Europe to offer guidance regarding the waiver process, which is an option for employees who wish to seek avoiding repayment of their erroneously received LQA. “We will provide the documentation we have pulled from our pay system, along with any documents we have been able to gather from your human resources office needed to support the waiver package,” Gillison said. “If you choose to go over and


meet with the team, we will present the documents to you, allow you to see everything you’d like to see, and what you need as a result of that signed 2789.” He also urged employees to provide any supporting documentation that may not be in their official records such as emails, letters and written correspondence discussing LQA entitlements. “We want to have as strong a package as possible to send forward,” Gillison said. Gillison explained that in about six months after being notified of the erroneous payments, if employees have not submitted a waiver request or taken other action toward the debt, such as requesting a hearing, DFAS may have to take steps to initiate debt collection. However, collections will not begin automatically. Gillison said if employees have taken no action within six months of notification, DFAS will come back to the appropriate command for input, and at that point, a decision would be made on when to start collection actions.

Employees would then be notified and have a chance to set up a payment plan. “This is why we are working so hard to expedite waivers,” Gillison said. A Defense Department Form 2789 must be filled out in order to begin the waiver process, but employees expressed reluctance in signing a form that would result in acknowledging a debt for which they were not responsible. Gillison clarified this confusion by pointing out the difference between signing the 2789 and signing the Voluntary Repayment Form. By signing the DD Form 2789, employees acknowledge that they have erroneously received LQA from the government, while signing the Voluntary Repayment Form acknowledges they owe that money back. There is no requirement to sign a Volunteer Repayment Form in order to apply for the waiver, even though that form appears in the official debt notification package. Employees also expressed concerns

that there was no written guarantee their waiver packages would be approved. Gillison said that while blanket waivers cannot be granted, each waiver package will include a copy of the Air Force command letter stating the debt was incurred “through no fault of the employee.” “We will also provide a strong recommendation to the Defense Office of Hearing and Appeals,” he said. He also noted that case studies in the past have shown a strong connection between DOHA decisions and DFAS recommendations. In addition to receiving the waiver, employees worried that the oneyear “grace period” of LQA would be accrued as part of their LQA debt. U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa officials alleviated these fears by citing a memo by Acting Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness Jessica L. Wright, who authorized the one-year extension to all employees See TOWN HALL, Page 15

Share the roads Buying, selling used cars in Germany by Tech. Sgt. Nicholas Dillenbeck 86th Airlift Wing Safety office

by Joerg Moddelmog Kaiserslautern Legal Services Center

It is rare to have so many nice, sunny days in a row in Germany. And with that beautiful weather comes additional road traffic. This is where we have to be mindful and maintain good situational awareness as we share the road. During this period of excellent weather, remember you are sharing the road not just with other vehicles, but also with motorcycles, bicycles, runners/walkers and tourists. Unfortunately, the 86th Airlift Wing Safety office has seen a rise in vehicle mishaps involving military members and local nationals. That in itself is not out of the ordinary. But what is alarming is the severity. Driving within or out of city limits can be challenging when dealing with motorcycles and mopeds, especially when they weave in and out of traffic. One thing motorists may not know in regards to passing two-wheeled vehicles is that the motorists must allow at least one and a half meters (five feet) between the vehicle and cyclist/motorist in accordance with German law. A traffic lane is approximately 2.5 meters (8 feet) wide. So, that means, when passing you should be in the other lane to maintain safe separation. According to AE Pamphlet 190-34 and USAFE Pamphlet 31-206, “Drivers Handbook and Examination Manual for Courtesy photo Germany,” Americans can Motorists should remember to be mindful drive safely in Europe if they and maintain good situational awareness learn to react quickly to local while driving this summer. To avoid vehicle mishaps, remember to share the road with traffic signs and to anticipate other vehicles, including motorcycles and the actions of other drivers. pedestrians. Most accidents can be avoided by: • Driving sober and always being alert. • Driving defensively. • Being alert and courteous, regardless of who has the right of way. • Helping to prevent dangerous situations. • Becoming familiar with local driving customs and laws. • Maintaining vehicles in excellent mechanical condition. As the summer days continue, it allows us to experience everything Germany and neighboring countries have to offer. So, be mindful that we must share the road with other people. Be on the lookout for cyclists, motorists, pedestrians, etc. One distraction can mean the difference between avoiding hitting someone or hurting another.

re you thinking about buying a used car downtown, or are you about to sell your car to a fellow service member? Then you might be interested to know that in both cases, the sale/ purchase will be subject to German law. Therefore, it is good to know what host nation laws say on the subject of warranties and defects. Even though verbal contracts are valid and fully enforceable in Germany, only a written agreement enables you to adequately prove the terms of the agreement and clarify each other’s obligations under it. All terms should be reduced to writing and signed by the parties, because written contracts are presumed to be correct, complete and without binding oral (side) agreements. The buyer should have the car thoroughly checked out and tested before the sale is concluded. The car should be inspected by a trustworthy independent third party (e.g., a garage). Passing inspection is hardly enough proof that the car will remain a reliable one since it does not say anything about the real condition of the car. It just shows that the car is doing fine at that one moment. A clause like “inspection guaranteed” means only that the seller has the duty — and the right — to place the car into such a condition that it passes inspection. Normal wear and tear usually does not constitute a legally relevant defect, even if it impairs the functioning of a used car, unless the buyer demanded a clear, concrete and binding representation from the seller to the contrary. Therefore, the buyer should ask the seller for specific assurances, express warranties or guarantees if a certain condition is important to him or her. It should be put down in writing. In Germany, the average total life span of a car is 10 years. After eight years, rust is a significant danger for almost every car in Germany and is, therefore, considered to be normal wear and tear. When buying a car from a dealership, the warranty period is two years. It can be reduced to one year if you buy a used car from a dealer.

Only when buying from a private person can the warranty be excluded completely by terms like “as is,” “with all faults,” or “Gebraucht wie besichtigt.” It is also important to verify the seller’s name on the bill of sale and to keep a copy of the power of attorney if the seller is selling on behalf of another person. Do not hesitate to ask to see the seller’s ID. Also, keep the seller’s local address and phone number on file in case you need to contact him later should a problem arise. If you encounter problems when selling/buying a car, feel free to contact either the German Attorney-Adviser Matthias Voelker at the Ramstein Law Center (489-2552 or 06371-47-2552) or the German legal assistance attorneys Joerg C.

Medical group shadow program by Airman Dymekre Allen 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


he 86th Medical Group Shadow Program has been implemented to provide an opportunity for Airmen to advance in their career and education by learning some of the basics of medical procedures by following under the wing of a medical professional for a day. “It’s a great program, and as of right now, the program is in its initial phase. As it evolves, the possibilities exist for a wider group to participate,” said Master Sgt. Michael Gordon, 86th Airlift Wing Dental Squadron. The shadow program is available to all Airmen who are willing to explore a medical career field and lay the groundwork for future networking possibilities. Additionally, the program identifies the participating Airmen who have unique leadership traits and provide a platform for tailored developmental opportunities. “The shadow program is a way for Airmen who want to have an idea of what it would be like to be an officer in the medical group,” said Staff Sgt. Joshua Garbert, 86th Medical Support

Squadron diagnostic imaging technician NCOIC. “If anyone wanted to know what it’d be like to be a dentist, a physical therapist or an X-ray technician, we allow them that opportunity and give them the guidance they need to progress.” All members participating in the program will gain an expeditionary generalist mindset and an enhanced perspective on “Airmanship” in relation to the Air Force Medical Service. “If you’re a motivated Airmen seeking to advance your medical skills, this program could be just what you need to get your foot in the door,” said Airman 1st Class Julie Bersinger, 86th Medical Operations Squadron medical technician. “In my experience, it has been helpful and in the advancement of my medical career.” Developing expeditionary generalist will focus on several different aspects in the growth and development of Airmen. According to the program pamphlet, the key tenets of the Career Shadow Program are: • The group commander’s philosophy of “building future AFMS leaders” and, to an extent, “joint partnerships.”

• Aid Airmen in better understanding the integration of operational and support functions within the 86th Medical Group. • Offer Airmen opportunities to observe different medical career field options and gain a unique internship where personal interaction is premium. In order to achieve the aforementioned objectives, the program will target individuals for one of two developmental paths: a leadership path and an expanded career exposure path. The leadership path will target those members who have been identified as potential future leaders in the AFMS Corps. This aspect of the program will expose Airmen to critical thinking decision making processes, roles and responsibilities of leadership, and management. The expanded career exposure path will focus on providing participants with viable career options and a glimpse into “a day in the life” of a particular medical professional. For more information, contact the medical group at 06371-46-2237 or 314-479-2273. MDG hours are from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

European countries conduct Vienna Document visit at Baumholder Story and photo by Ignacio “Iggy” Rubalcava U.S. Army Garrison Baumholder Public Affairs Delegates from 33 European countries belonging to the Conventional Forces Europe Treaty Compliance came to Baumholder June 26 as part of a Vienna Document visit. The Vienna Document provides all 56 of the signatory countries the opportunity to host an open house every five years. This year, the 33 countries participating in the visit sent a total of 68 delegates to Baumholder. This visit was not a CFE inspection where the visiting countries can look at what’s behind any door wider than two meters, but rather an open house that provided U.S. Army Garrison Baumholder an opportunity to showcase its people and services. “Think of it in terms of a one-sided information exchange. The delegates are not providing information to Baumholder or the Army, or EUCOM for that matter. We’re providing them with information,” said Bruce Likens, a member of Baumholder’s Directorate of Plans, Training, Mobilization and Security. Baumholder was chosen because of its proximity to Spangdahlem Air Base. The delegates are required to visit an Air Force and Army, or ground troops, installation so Baumholder was the ideal choice.

Master Sgt. Wilfredo Rivera, 317th Maintenance Support Company, explains to 33 delegates from Conventional Forces Europe Treaty Compliance countries, who visited Baumholder June 26, what Soldiers do on a day-to-day basis in a motor pool. The delegates also received information from U.S. Army Garrison Baumholder personnel about how Soldiers, family members and civilians live, work and play on a U.S. military installation.

“This made it logistically more cost effective for the team,” Likens said. The delegates received briefings of the command, the garrison and of the major units assigned to Baumholder. This was followed by tours of numerous facilities that portray how Soldiers and civilians live, work and play at an Army installation.

“We showed them a multitude of DFMWR facilities, single Soldier barracks, family quarters and a motor pool belonging to the 317th Maintenance Support Company,” Likens said. “They were especially interested in our Army Community Service and the programs that ACS provides.”

Baumholder’s training facilities were also a highlight for the visitors. “They were interested in what we have here for Soldiers to do their training and weapons firing. They really liked what they saw here on Baumholder, so it was what I call a win-win situation for us,” Likens said.

Aeromedical evac tests new device for patient records Story and photo by Senior Airman Hailey Haux 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs A new “my Wi-Fi” hot spot device was tested by aeromedical evacuation crewmembers July 19. “My Wi-Fi” is a secure, offthe-shelf device that acts as a hot spot and allows aeromedical evacuation crewmembers to send patient records to that person’s next location before they arrive. “It will be noticed more up at (Landstuhl Regional Medical Center) where they accept trauma victims,” said Tech. Sgt. Jonathan Andrew, 375th Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron flight instructor. “They would be able to see the patient’s record before that person gets to LRMC and prepare for what they need to do.” This new device helps decrease human errors, enhances warfighter safety and security, and ventures away from paper records. While in flight, the wireless router is used to connect up to 10 devices in order to communicate effectively, and once the aircraft touches ground, the “my Wi-Fi” device is used to send the patient’s records to the facility providing care to that patient. “On aeromedical evacuation missions, the paper documents rarely make it into the patient’s record,” Andrew said. “This electronic health record system helps get those important files into the patient’s records.” Crews on the aeromedical evacuation flights currently have

laptops assigned to them; however, those laptops were unable to communicate with one another. The wireless router will allow the laptops to be linked, and crewmembers will be able to share patient information without having to switch laptops. “Before having ‘my Wi-Fi,’ transferring patient records was very labor intensive,” said Brooke Stauner, Theater Medical Information Program contractor. “This is huge.” Having an ever-changing process, the users constantly have training to keep up-to-date on the new things that become available. “Like everything else that is technology based, we have to be open-minded with this whole process,” said Maj. Justice Sakyi, Air Mobility Command division chief. “We are always getting feedback from those in the field using the equipment and trying to improve it and make it better.” Keeping the patient’s records together is an important goal, especially when it comes to receiving veteran’s benefits. If their records aren’t complete, they won’t be able to receive the proper treatment and benefits, Stauner said. “Our long term goal is to keep the warfighters safe and give them the help they need in a timely manner as well as make the providers’ lives easier,” Sakyi said. “Once the testing is complete, all 32 aeromedical evacuation squadrons, as well as all deployed locations, will have access and training to use this program.”

86th AW’s flightline gets a facelift by Senior Airman Hailey Haux 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs The 86th Civil Engineer Squadron is repairing the flightline on Ramp Two with an estimated completion date of Aug. 30. The construction, which began June 3, will focus on installing new drainage systems, and the adjoining concrete is being worked on to decrease any inherent damage to aircraft.

“Over time, there has been differential settlement to the existing drainage grates,” said Garry Jaggers, 86th CES project management section chief. “The differential settling can be created by (foreign object debris) and drop-offs between slabs, causing millions of dollars of damage to aircraft.” Differential settling is when there are varying height differences in concrete. If enough of the settling occurs, the gaps become larger and can cause damage to aircraft landing gear.

“Just like a car, an aircraft has shock absorbers. The more pounding those absorbers take, the quicker they will become worn out or damaged,” said 2nd Lt. Timothy Lorson, 86th CES program section chief. “The settling also starts to grind and chip off small pieces of concrete at the joints where the settling occurs. This creates an FOD hazard for aircraft engines. Loose FOD can get sucked up in an engine and cause extensive damage.” The new drainage gates

will help prevent aircraft fluids from seeping into the ground, almost eliminating environmental impacts. “Aircraft fluids are, by majority, either petroleum or chemically engineered to help the aircraft perform better,” Lorson said. “Unfortunately, these fluids can sometimes be incompatible with other environments. Our goal is to leave as little, preferably zero, footprint as possible to sustain a better environment for the future.” There are more than 580

meters (about a mile) of drains, reformed with rebar and 700 cubic meters of concrete being poured and installed. “We are always looking for ways to eliminate environmental impacts. It is a continual process that we are continuously improving on,” Lorson said. “This project is just one piece of the hundreds of projects we have done in the past, present or will do in the future to mitigate the impacts we have on the local environment.”

Seminar motivates heroes to continue to serve Story and photo by Airman Dymekre Allen 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


he Joint Professional Development Seminar was conducted July 18 at the Hercules Theater. The event brought together Airmen, Soldiers and Sailors to help renew service members’ commitment to the military force and to motivate service members to have the courage to continue to be the heroes of the nation. “It’s important that we renew our commitment to the profession of arms,” said Master Sgt. Karen Atiles, Kisling NCO Academy, superintendent of leadership division. “It means a lot to me and to a lot of other service members that we do so. The Department of Defense protects our freedom in the United States.” There were more than 200 people who signed up to attend the annual seminar at the Hercules Theater. The event hosted nine guest speakers who told stories of their service experiences and moments that drove them to advance and continue their careers in the service. “We need to get back to the why,” Atiles said. “Why did we join and why do we continue to serve? Is it for our name, our families or is it to honor the fallen Soldiers who protected our freedom?” Briefers from the seminar also men-

tioned warfighters from the past who would only serve the minimal amount of years compared to the dedication shown by the services of the current generation. “We’ve grown as a nation and as a military,” said Navy Command Chief Master Sgt. Ron Nayda, senior enlisted leader. “We’re growing, but we are only still just a fraction of our current fighting forces truly bleeding red, white and blue.” The U.S. military consist of heroes who bravely serve and who are the

physical human force to defend the territorial integrity and the protected domain to make people and property of a kingdom, state or a nation secure from external invasion. These heroes are committed to a life of service and protection to not only the KMC or our nation, but to the world, and this seminar reminded the joint forces of just that. “These seminars help us grow and learn from one another. Without them, the single percent that we stand for in the world could be

reduced to none,” Nayda said. This seminar was targeted at all ranks and ages in all branches of service. “It was good for us as young Airmen to have some insight on these matters. The joint PDS was a beneficial event for not only myself but for all those who attended,” said Airman 1st Class Jordan Castelan, 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs photojournalist. “I’m definitely more devoted and motivated to pursue a longer term career after an event like that.”

US forces customs officials crack down on fuel card abuse by Robert Szostek U.S. Army Europe Office of the Provost Marshal HEIDELBERG, Germany — The Army and Air Force Exchange Service fuel card makes it easy for U.S. forces personnel to fill up their vehicles with tax-free fuel in Germany. U.S. Army Europe Office of the Provost Marshal officials said the system’s automated features also make it simple for customs investigators to track suspicious transactions.

“Since the use of the fuel card began, customs investigators have identified several fuel card violators,” said Fred Evans, chief of Customs Services and Investigations at the USAREUR OPM. Using the fuel card database, investigators receive reports on several types of violations and can see who is pumping fuel, when and where. Officials described one recent case involving an American who for years was selling gasoline purchased with the fuel card to friends who were not authorized to buy tax-free fuel. German cus-

toms officials fined the man €22,000 (more than $28,000) and ordered him to pay €37,000 (more than $47,000) in unpaid taxes. “In an effort to protect duty and tax-free gas privileges, U.S. Forces Customs is strictly enforcing compliance,” Evans said. “We will identify each and every violator and take the necessary action to prevent abuse.” Visit AAFES online at www.shopmyexchange. com/ExchangeStores/GermanyFuelRation for more information on the fuel card system.

AF takes swift action against sexual assault by Maj. Gen. Margaret Woodward Headquarters Air Force Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office WASHINGTON — It’s not an overstatement to say the past many years have been challenging for those in the military working to prevent sexual assault and sexual trauma. However, for those who’ve been victimized it has been much worse, and we should never forget that. The harm in this crime is not just physical; it is emotional, scarring the mental health of our Airmen, often in enduring ways. As an institution, we must foster a culture that nourishes dignity and respect for fellow Airmen. The health of our Airmen and the readiness of our force demands it. Scandals such as the one at basic military training at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas, have taught us that those of us in uniform must remain vigilant and supremely committed to addressing and eliminating this crime. From my new vantage point, overseeing Air Force sexual assault prevention and response efforts at the Pentagon, it’s worth noting how our institution has stepped up to meet this challenge in myriad ways. The renewed focus started with my appointment to lead this team of 31 experts who are truly dedicated to tackling the multidimensional issues surrounding sexual assault and rape occurring in our Air Force. Our team includes research analysts, epidemiologists, mental health professionals, special investigators and others who can help us address root causes and find effective, verifiable and lasting solutions. My mandate from Gen. Welsh is to initiate broad and sweeping changes that will help the Air Force pursue perpetrators and support victims holistically, with input from Airmen, seasoned sexual assault prevention and response professionals, victim advocacy groups, and incorporating the very best practices outside of military and government. We also will spend a great deal of time listening to and learning from you, our Airmen, to develop policies with far-reaching and tangible effects. We realize fixing this problem will not be easy or quick. But we won’t be paralyzed by the size and scope of the challenge. We are already moving out on multiple fronts: • Vice Chief of Staff Gen. Larry Spencer launched “Every Airman Counts” July 16, a wide-reaching program, the first initiative of which is a blog website where Airmen can talk to their peers and share ideas on how the Air Force can better address this issue. We also will routinely offer web chats with senior leaders and experts in the field of sexual assault and sexual trauma. • As of July 2, after completing any dis-

ciplinary action for sexual assault, commanders must initiate administrative discharge processing for any Airman, officer or enlisted, found to have committed a sexual assault offense. • Airmen have the right to have a general officer review a case if the Airman believes the commander’s recommendation for involuntary separation was initiated in retaliation for having made an unrestricted report of a sexual assault within the previous 12 months. • We are conducting Airmen surveys and focus groups where we will travel to several bases to personally talk to Airmen about their views and perspectives. • We have already instituted a program to provide trained legal advisers to those who have been victimized. The Special Victims Counsel program is designed to fill gaps that often arise in the wake of sexual assault and rape cases. • We have begun partnering with sexual assault prevention experts inside and outside the military. One thing I have learned thus far is there is no silver bullet, no quick fix to this problem. The solution requires our total commitment at every level of the chain of command and from each one of you. • We will continue to educate leaders up and down command chains, using everything from unit level discussions to a planned general officer summit. We all must understand what it takes to identify, and hold accountable, perpetrators of sexual assault and how best to support our Airman survivors. This isn’t an issue that just affects the very small percentage of perpetrators or victims within our ranks, it affects us all. And we are all part of the solution. We all must help the Air Force reinforce a culture of dignity and respect, and create an environment that isolates perpetrators and removes them from our ranks. We will not stop until collectively we solve this issue for the good of our Air Force, our nation, and most importantly, every one of you! (Maj. Gen. Margaret Woodward is director of the Headquarters Air Force Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office.)

Agencies work to bolster vet, family education outcomes by Karen Parrish American Forces Press Service WASHINGTON — Several government agencies are working on initiatives to improve educational success rates for service members, veterans and their families, senior Department of Veterans Affairs and consumer protection officials told lawmakers today. Curtis L. Coy, deputy undersecretary for economic opportunity for VA’s Veterans Benefits Administration, testified with several other witnesses before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee on educational outcomes for military members and veterans. Holly Petraeus, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s assistant director for the Office of Servicemember Affairs, also testified. A central question was whether veterans and serving troops are unscrupulously recruited by some for-profit schools. As Petraeus explained, a “90-10” provision in law that is meant to protect students actually creates a loophole some schools are exploiting. She said the rule requires for-profit colleges to get at least 10 percent of their revenues from a source other than Title IV, which covers federal student financial aid programs. The rule is meant to ensure that a

college does not exist solely on federal funds, Petraeus said, but although tuition assistance and the Post-9/11 GI Bill are federally funded, they fall into the 10-percent category of the 90-10 rule. “This means that for every service member using (tuition assistance) or GI Bill funds, as well as the spouse or child of a service member, in the case of the Post-9/11 GI Bill, that a for-profit college recruits, the college can then go out and enroll nine other students who are using Title IV funds,” Petraeus said. “And that can be a problem.” This has given some for-profit colleges an incentive to see service members as “nothing more than dollar signs in uniform,” and to use unscrupulous marketing techniques to draw them in, Petraeus added. Coy said that while VA defers to the Education Department on the 90-10 calculation, “we recognize the argument for including the (GI Bill) in the 90 percent limit on federal funding.” He also noted, though, that a change in the 90-10 rule could leave some schools ineligible to receive federal funds. “Our concern is to ensure that veterans are not adversely affected by any proposed changes,” he said, “or to mitigate them to the extent possible.” VA and the Veterans Benefits Administration have collaborated with

Customs warns of violations


uthorized U.S. citizens in Germany receive a variety of goods and products through the military postal system from family, friends and online retail companies in the states. The majority of the mail received is processed and made available to customers without interruption. However, the post offices continue to receive some parcels that contain items that are prohibited and/or restricted for import into Germany. When German customs officials inspect the post offices and notice a violation, parcels are routinely seized and detained. A sampling of prohibited items includes: beef jerky and canned meat products, including dog and cat food; coffee, alcohol and tobacco products; prescription drugs from pharmacies and non-prescription medicines, including supplements, diet pills and vitamins; dairy products; firearms without proper permits, ammunition and fireworks; and counterfeit goods, including purses, shoes, clothing, CDs, DVDs and any merchandise that violates trademark agreements. In addition, customers should be aware that use of the military postal system to receive and send goods and

merchandise for the purpose of resale resulting in a financial gain is strictly prohibited. The resale prohibition violates Department of Defense mail regulations and host nation customs laws. Violators could face penalties or fines from German customs and may also jeopardize their mailing privileges, including receiving a temporary mailing suspension, limited privileges or a permanent revocation of privileges. Retired military patrons face additional restrictions. In accordance with USEUCOM Instruction 8703.01, military retirees in Germany may only receive goods and merchandise from commercial mailers with a value of €22 or less and €45 or less from personal mailers. These restrictions are in addition to the 16 ounce weight limit. For more information on what is prohibited in the mail for Germany, visit www1.zoll.de/english_version/a0_passenger_traffic/e0_vub/g0_medicines/ priv_imports/index.html or pick up a copy of USEUCOM NOTICE 8704.01R, Prohibited Import Items, dated Nov. 1, 2012, available at the Ramstein Northside, Southside and Kapaun post offices.

multiple agencies since 2001 to inform veteran students about their educational opportunities, he said, and resources are available online from VA, VBA and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to help potential students assess aptitude, plan a course of study and compare education costs. VA also has placed vocational rehabilitation counselors at military installations across the country, Coy added, and will have counselors on 90 college campuses by the end of the fiscal year. Coy noted VA has greatly increased oversight of all schools, including for-profit schools, and has this year completed more than 3,000 compliance reviews on schools as of the end of May. Nine institutions with a total of 177 veteran students were disqualified from receiving federal aid because of erroneous or misleading practices following those reviews, he said. Petraeus noted a number of initiatives and online resources are in place to help troops and their families navigate postsecondary education. “The wonderful education benefits provided to our military and their families through (tuition assistance) and the GI Bill should not be channeled to programs that do not promote — and may even frustrate — this outcome,” she said. SOCIAL MEDIA, from Page 5 about Air Force topics, provide a disclaimer stating the opinion as your own, and not that of the Air Force. This can be done either as a disclaimer on a profile, or on each individual post and will alleviate any potential confusion from followers reading the post. If an Airman posts a statement about hurting himself or others, time is of the essence. Contact 911 if you know the location of the Airman. If you do not know the person’s location, contact the command post or your supervisor for assistance in locating the Airman. It is important to seek help for these individuals immediately. Using certain security features within social media sites can help mitigate some of the risk of personal information being shared. However, privacy policies change almost daily, and Airmen may not know about the updates. Therefore, do not rely on site security measures alone. Be careful of whom you allow into your social media networks, and don’t

trust that the account will always remain secure. Assume personal responsibility. Airmen’s social-media pages are their personal space, and they are encouraged to tell their personal Air Force stories through social networks. They simply need to ensure the information they post is cleared for release and within regulations. Don’t jeopardize the mission or put anyone’s life, or lives in danger. Think before you post. “We don’t want Airmen to feel like they are stifled from sharing information,” Schusler said. “We just want to emphasize the use of common sense to keep people safe.” If Airmen have questions about acceptable posting to social media, there are resources available to them for guidance. AFPAA has published a new booklet, the Air Force Social Media Guide, available for download here, or at www. af.mil on the homepage under the social media icons. Airmen can also contact their local public affairs office with questions.

A&FRC provides support for Airmen

Heritage Baptist Church

by Airman Dymekre Allen 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


he Ramstein Airman & Family Readiness Center provides activities and services for members of the KMC to advance and adapt to the military way of life and promote self-sufficiency to strengthen the community. The center offers services such as information and referral, discovery resources and exceptional family member programs as well as relocation assistance to accommodate Ramstein Airmen in the best way possible. “Ramstein A&FRC strives to create and support ready and resilient Airmen and families through multiple programs and services,� said Sara Wilson, A&FRC lead life consultant. “We provide a unique German experience for newcomers through a local cultural orientation class and tours that

empower them to adapt to the German culture and enjoy it.� The heart of the A&FRC is information and referral. They answer all questions or provide the specific services an Airman may need. If they can’t assist in any way, they provide the resource as needed. The discovery resource center provides computers with Internet access for customer use during relocation. The computers can also be used for job search, resume writing, checking private email accounts and any other web services that can provide assistance. The family support function of the EFMP is designed to provide support to military family members with special needs in the form of information and referral. “The A&FRC provides family support to exceptional family members, manages the by-law Transition Assistance Program for

separating or retiring members, (and) offers financial support through briefings and individual consultations,� Wilson said. The A&FRC also promotes family preparedness through education and participation in readiness support. Families are also provided assistance during extended absences of the military member, emergencies and natural disasters. “The center helped me adjust to Air Force and German lifestyle,� said Airman 1st Class Jonathan Walsh, 86th Communication Squadron knowledge operations management commander support staff. “It’s a beneficial support center that has definitely made an impact on me and my family.� For more information, contact the A&FRC at 480-5100 or 06371-47-5100. The A&FRC hours of operation are from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Vogelweh CDC reopens by Senior Airman Hailey Haux 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs fter more than two years of renovations, the Vogelweh Child Development Center has had upgrading to its carpeting, flooring, wall panels, fire-suppression system and more, creating a better quality of life for the children at their home away from home. “The renovations not only gave a much needed facelift for a more modern CDC, but the facility now meets


all current (health) codes, ensuring the children’s safety in the facility,” said Shaquita Ponder, 86th Force Support Squadron CDC program manager. “The newly constructed wall allows for two classrooms to be utilized versus one, adding an additional toddler classroom to the facility.” The CDC is available to assist Department of Defense, military and civilian personnel in balancing the competing demands of the accomplishment of the DOD mission and family life by managing and delivering a system of quality.

“It is critical that parents are able to complete their mission daily with comfort in knowing that their children are in programs that are of high quality,” Ponder said. While the Vogelweh CDC was being renovated, those children were sent to Ramstein’s CDC. Now that the new building at Vogelweh has opened, it freed up more space at Ramstein’s CDC as well. “With the KMC being one of the largest military populated areas, child care spaces are and will continue to be a challenge. This project was

part of an emergency intervention construction project to update some of our facilities and increase the number of spaces that we’ll be able to offer to the community,” Ponder said. The Vogelweh CDC can have approximately 448 children in attendance that range anywhere from 6 weeks to 5 years in age. With few spots available at any given time, parents should make sure they can register their children at the soonest possible time. If you are looking to have your child/children attend either the Ramstein

or Vogelweh CDC, there are a few ways of going about that. You can stop by the Resource and Referral Office, located in the Ramstein CDC, Bldg. 832, or call 480-8782 or 06371478782. Or, you can register online at https:// www.86fss.com/index.php/ cdc-waiting-list-requestforms. The Vogelweh CDC has since reopened its doors March 25. For questions, call the Ramstein CDC at 480-9276 or 06371479276, or the Vogelweh CDC at 489-7419 or 06315367419.

Sports guard clinic protects patients from injury by Rachel Kersey 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


he Ramstein Dental Clinic hosted the annual sports guard clinic July 20 on Ramstein. “We come in on a Saturday to see dependents and make sports guards,” said Airman 1st Class Kelly Almeida, 86th Dental Squadron dental technician. “With school starting and sports in the summertime, it’s critical that you have a sports guard to protect your mouth.” Approximately 57 patients aged 6 and older were fitted for personalized sports guards, which serve to absorb the shock of contact by acting as a cushion against trauma from the outside, said Col. John Kersey, 86th Dental Squadron pediatric dentist. Dependents are seen on space avail-

able basis at the dental clinic, Almeida said. The yearly sports guard clinic allows volunteer dentists and technicians to serve dependents outside of normal duty hours at no cost to the patients. “Overall, I think it went really well,” said Capt. Erin McNamara, 86th Dental Squadron general dentist. “This is the first time we did appointments, and I think it made it run much smoother. Less time in the waiting room shortens the time you have to be in the clinic. We get more positive comments from parents and families saying that it was just much easier for them when they come in.” Almeida said there are also other opportunities for off-duty care throughout the year, such as the biannual Little Teeth, Big Smiles clinic, which is an opportunity for children ages 3 to 7 to get exams and cleanings,
