Cherry on top of AF career by Senior Airman Timothy Moore 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Air Force officials recently announced the 12 Outstanding Airmen of the Year for 2015, and for the second year in a row, Ramstein Air Base is home to one of the Air Force’s best. Senior Airman Allen R. Cherry III, 86th Aerospace Medicine Squadron Public Health technician, is now among the 12 Airmen who get to claim the prestigious distinction this year. “It’s exciting and very, very humbling,” Cherry said. “There were a lot of key influential people that definitely helped mold and develop me. This wouldn’t have happened without my

leadership, my fellow peers, my supervision and my friends and family.” The award recognizes 12 outstanding enlisted service members across the Air Force for superior leadership, job performance, community involvement and personal achievements. Among his 2014 accomplishments, Cherry was selected as the Air Force’s 2014 Public Health Airman of the Year and Senior Airman Below-the-Zone. Though he said he is proud of these awards and accomplishments, he is equally honored for his other activities that were included in his award package. “The things that I’m most proud of were being involved with honor guard and See CHERRY, Page 2

WASHINGTON — The Air Force maintains its commitment to protect personal information from cyber threats by continuing efforts with the Department of Defense and the Office of Personnel Management to assist those impacted by the recent cyber incident involving federal background investigation data. OPM and an interagency response team, including investigators from the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security, concluded that sensitive information, including Social Security numbers, were stolen from back-

ground investigations of 21.5 million individuals. “We sincerely regret this has happened and that so many people were impacted by having their key information at risk,” said Secretary of the Air Force Deborah Lee James. “Cybersecurity and protecting personal information of our personnel will always be a top priority for the Air Force. We will continue to support the DOD and OPM to ensure our personnel are protected.” While background investigation records do contain some information regarding mental health and financial history provided by applicants and people contacted during the background investigation, there is no evidence that

Ownership: the core of units, processes, self COMMENTARY

by Capt. John-Paul P. Adrian 569th U.S. Forces Police Squadron interim commander Ownership is at the core of a majority of our successes and failures — in the military, professional careers and our personal lives. Ownership remains at the core of these ebbs and flows. Ownership is the state or fact of possessing something as your own. It is personal to an individual and has attachment and meaning. In the military, ownership takes on a further element: the choice to adopt something as your own. It means caring enough about it to associate it with yourself directly and putting in the extra investments of time and effort to make it

Cherry, from Page 1 participating in more than 27 details this year and making an impact on the wing and the Air Force in large,” Cherry said. Cherry explained that he was also proud of being a head coach for a youth soccer team. One of the individuals Cherry credits with helping him achieve this award is Senior Master Sgt. Manjinder Suprai, who began as Cherry’s flight chief and is now the 86th AMDS superintendent. “He’s just always been very amazing to me, asking how my job is going and trying to develop me,” Cherry said. According to Cherry, Suprai would regularly ask him about his on- and offduty life and work, including school and volunteering. Suprai would ask questions to help Cherry get the best out of the Air Force, so the Air Force

could get the best out of him. “It’s the service before self that they always talk about,” Cherry said. “It’s literally removing yourself, your name. We’re representing the U.S. Air Force. We wear it over our heart. That’s what we are representing first. I’ll always be a Cherry, but I signed up for something bigger than myself. That’s what I’m here to serve first. That was something that I really did and will continue to do to get the most out of the Air Force.” Cherry also attributes his determination and success to his father. “He’s a retired chief, and I knew it was super important when he retired that I continue to carry the legacy that he had,” Cherry said. “That way we could keep our name and our tradition of being in the Air Force credited and valuable.” According to his supervisor, Tech. Sgt. Ireneo Alfaro, 86th AMDS Public

better for everyone else in the unit and the installation. We may find ourselves in a unit or job that does not fit our personality. We may find ourselves as a cog in a broken or overly bureaucratic process. We may find ourselves in a situation where we know the “easy way out” and can see how to access it without anyone the wiser. We may find ourselves in one of these scenarios throughout our careers and lives. It is easy to be discontent, complain and separate ourselves from the situation because it’s not us that caused the issue; it’s “them.” The “them” means any other individual but ourselves. There are lots of examples of Airmen (active-duty, civilians, contractors and family) choosing

ownership each day and making a difference through this choice. Airmen from the 86th Airlift Wing are owning their mission as members of fly-away security details every day. These Airmen are flying into dangerous airfields while simultaneously providing feedback to their unit and training centers about new procedures and tactics for use infield, thereby looking out for future Airmen traveling to these locations and developing standard operating procedures. Airmen are looking out for their unit members by helping them and their families upon their arrival in Germany, providing information about their new home and tips for success.

You should be mentoring me instead.’’’ Alfaro said that is one of the things he noticed about Cherry that makes him stand out. He not only mentors and encourages his peers but also the NCOs in his flight. Cherry wants to improve those around him as he works to improve himself. It is for this reason both Cherry and Alfaro see this award as a victory for more people than just him. “This is the guy that made it happen, not just for himself, but also for our (Air Force specialty code),” Alfaro said. “He is the first ever pub-

processes, cutting expenses, shortening wait times and leveraging technology in new ways. If we make the choice and put forth the effort to own these scenarios and situations, then we are making the decision to participate. This participation and movement is essential to precipitate change. Ownership changes a unit into a military family, a broken process into an opportunity for improvement and an uncomfortable situation into a chance to build and display strength of character. Our challenge as Airmen and as members of the U.S. military is to make the choice of ownership. It’s from here that we can make a difference in our surroundings and those surrounding us.

Jasmin D. Wiltshire in 2000. “Medical’s not a typical thing you think of when you think about the Air Force,” Cherry said. “You think about air power, flying and dropping bombs. You don’t think about medical or public health. I knew I could get far. I didn’t realize I was going to get this far.” Cherry and the other award winners are slated to attend a banquet in September to highlight their accomplishments. With more than 240,000 enlisted service members in the Air Force, Cherry truly sits on top of the Air Force among the best.

AFCEA hosts tech expo on Ramstein

Airmen and civilians attend the Armed Forces Communications-Electronics Association’s technology exposition July 20 on Ramstein. Over 65 companies participated in the two-day event to show the technologies available that may aid the military in completing their mission.

Story and photo by Airman 1st Class Tryphena Mayhugh 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs The Armed Forces Communications-Electronics Association Chapter 158 and U.S. Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa A6 hosted a technology exposition July 20 and 21 on Ramstein to allow Airmen and civilians to see the latest technologies available. With almost 70 booths, the expo offered more than 600 attendees displays from companies pertaining to cybersecurity, satellite communications, secure information technology solutions, encryption devices and software, advanced threat protection and many other IT specialties. The theme of this year’s expo was “Cyber Effects ― Leveraging Innovation Technologies Worldwide” and showed demonstrations in the exhibit hall. Several presentations for cyber awareness were also shown in the “Innovation Theater.” “Information technology has a part in all mis-

sions across Ramstein and the Kaiserslautern Military Community area,” said Col. Jeffrey Sorrell, AFCEA Chapter 158 president. “Bringing the industry here allows them to show Airmen things that will enhance their mission.” The AFCEA Chapter 158 has hosted the expo for the last 19 years to provide a means for companies to show how their technology can be used to benefit Airmen and civilians on Ramstein. Sorrell said that AFCEA is the linchpin that creates a relationship between the government and the IT industry by providing a means for the two to come together. “It gives Airmen ideas they

can express to their leadership on how to improve their offices,” Sorrell said. “I encourage Airmen to network with their peers, meet industry partners and attend the educational presentations.” Many of the Airmen who attended the expo were drawn by the chance to see the latest advances different companies have to offer. “I came today because I’m always interested in learning about the new, cuttingedge technology that is available today,” said Staff Sgt. Shimir Bishop, 1st Combat Communications Squadron tactical network operations supervisor. “This expo lets Airmen know there’s more

Expeditionary Airmen carry AF mission load by Senior Airman Nicole Sikorski 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

Senior Airmen Giselle Toro (left) and Tristen Geray, 37th Airlift Squadron loadmasters, prepare for a U.S. and Bulgarian air force formation flight July 14 over Plovdiv, Bulgaria. Loadmasters are responsible for the proper loading of cargo onto an aircraft and ensuring passengers are safe and comfortable during travel.

Hours before propellers turn and wheels leave the ground, one group of Airmen are the first pair of boots to step forward in the mission. From securing cargo to ensuring passenger safety and comfort, 86th Airlift Wing C-130J Super Hercules loadmasters from the 37th Airlift Squadron are largely responsible for mission success. Lives are in the hands of these select few, who work around the clock and globe to deliver air support whenever and wherever it may be needed. Although many don’t experience an issue, Senior Airman Emily Mitchell, 37th AS loadmaster, experienced the value of readiness firsthand when a jumpmaster got caught on a static line when exiting the aircraft.

Seventh WGS satellite launch successful after weather delay by James Spellman, Jr. Space and Missile Systems Center Public Affairs LOS ANGELES AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. — Five o’clock in the “City of Angels” typically signals the end of a day’s hard work. It’s a time when most Los Angeles metropolitan area commuters pile on to the freeways and the Metro Rail system, returning to their homes during the long summer evening. However, about 25 dedicated Space and Missile Systems Center personnel put off their mad dash to jam the streets of LA, and instead, gathered in the Gordon Conference Center at the Schriever Space Complex. Instead of having visions of the weekend ahead, these active-duty and civilian employees observed the culmination of their efforts 2,584 miles away at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla. Featuring a newly uprated Aerojet Rocketdyne RS-68A main engine for the first time on a rocket of its kind, a United Launch Alliance Delta IV Medium+ (5, 4) vehicle with a more than 16-foot wide, 47-foot long payload fairing and four solid fuel motors, soared from Space Launch Complex 37B at 8:07 p.m. EDT July 23. The

vehicle carried the seventh Wideband Global Satcom satellite into a supersynchronous 36,000-mile transfer orbit. The Air Force communications satellite will join a constellation of WGS satellites already on station, providing global coverage to the U.S. military and its allies. “This is the seventh installment of the WGS system,” said Ron Fortson, ULA’s director of mission management. “The satellites are an important element of a new, high-capacity comm system providing communications capability to our troops in the field.” Meanwhile, back in California, the appreciative audience watched the launch as part of the eighth “SMC Launch Presents” event since 2014. Hosted by Capt. Nick Laliberte, the government mission integration manager from SMC’s Launch Systems Directorate, these “launch and learn” sessions offer a prelaunch mission briefing and a Q-and-A session to explain what occurs during the countdown and the mission timeline in between the launch and satellite separation. Just one week earlier a similar, although larger, audience of more than 150 SMC per-

sonnel gathered the morning of July 15 to watch the successful flight of a ULA Atlas V “401” launch vehicle carry the GPS IIF-10 satellite into orbit for the GPS navigation network. The fourth Atlas V launch of 2015 helped mark the 20th anniversary of the GPS constellation of satellites achieving full operational capability. Launch managers were forced to scrub the WGS-7 mission the evening of July 22 for 24 hours, due to Florida’s notorious summer weather. The stormy forecast proved too worrisome to roll back the protective mobile service gantry and leave the vehicle exposed during the afternoon fueling session. Weather forecasters from the 45th Space Wing expected heavy thunderstorms in the Cape Canaveral area for the July 23 attempt with anvil clouds and lightning being their primary concerns of violating launch criteria. Fortunately, the skies parted long enough for ULA’s medium-lift launch vehicle to do its job. “It provides the highest data-rate communications for the government,” said Rico Attanasio, Boeing director of Military Satellite Communications.

A Delta IV Medium+ (5, 4) rocket, carrying the seventh Wideband Global Satcom satellite aboard, lifts off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla., July 23.

Boeing is the builder of the WGS fleet, and ULA has launched all of the spacecraft to date. The satellites supply communications such as maps and data to Soldiers on the battlefield, relay video from unmanned aerial reconnaissance drones, route voice calls and data messaging; they even offer quality-of-life considerations like TV broadcasts and email delivery to the troops. “The WGS constellation continues to provide significant added capacity to our (Defense Department) space communi-

cations architecture,” said Lt. Gen. Samuel Greaves, SMC commander and Air Force program executive officer for space. “WGS delivers crucial wideband communication to Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and international partners around the globe. I am proud of the hard work and cooperation of the government and contractor teams on another successful WGS launch.” With three more satellites in production, the WGS constellation plans to have a total of 10 satellites on orbit by 2018.

TSC Soldiers take on ‘Nijmegen 4 Daagse’ Story and photo by Sgt. 1st Class Alexander A. Burnett 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs The annual Nijmegen “Vierdaagse,” the Four Days Marches, in the Netherlands is an event regional marching enthusiasts and service members, among others, look forward to all year. For some, it is a chance to prove their strength and resiliency. For others, it is a chance to join thousands of other marchers in the world’s largest walking event and earn a coveted ribbon. Regardless of the reason, everyone must complete his or her individual distance — and 30 to 50 km a day is no small feat. Seventeen Soldiers from the 21st Theater Sustainment Command’s 7th Civil Support Command, 30th Medical Brigade and 16th Sustainment Brigade, participated in the 99th annual running of the march event this year July 21 to 24 in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. Soldiers had three choices of how to conduct their march: individual Hundreds of walkers from all over the world walk along a path during the 99th Annual Four Days March near Nederasselt, the Netherlands, July 24. Military and civilian participants walked between 30 and 50 km each day through a different part of the Netherlands as part of this event.

“I couldn’t believe it when it was happening,” Mitchell said. “It was scary. His life was in my hands and that’s not something people go through every day. I was extremely relieved when I pulled him in and even more so when I had been told he had made a full recovery. It’s an experience I will never forget.” C-130J pilots work primarily in the front and keep the aircraft safe and operational, whereas loadmasters are responsible for the rest. According to Capt. Brian Shea, 37th AS pilot, it is hard to put into words how much a pilot relies on a loadmaster and their ability to solve problems. “Our job on C-130s is to ensure cargo and personnel movement into a combat environment,” Shea said. “Trust is critical between loadmasters and pilots because we rely on them to fly safely. They do all of the work in the back of the airplane and we need their expertise.” Properly functioning aircraft not only ensure that things get

where they need to go, but the aircraft play a key role in the bigger picture as well. These C-130J experts have a heavy hand in the U.S. Air Force’s forward presence in Europe, allowing work with allies to develop and improve the ready air force’s capabilities of maintaining regional security. “I’ve known since I decided to come into the Air Force that this job was the one I wanted,” said Senior Airman Tristen Geray, 37th AS loadmaster. “The part of it you don’t see is that 15-hour day when we land in (a foreign country) in the early hours of the morning. It’s still dark out and we have to hand-download more than 10,000 pounds of (cargo) because no one is out there. Although I’ve slept in many hotels, I’ve also slept on a lot of cots and done my fair share of sweating.

drop operations. This training equips them with the skills to balance the weight of each load on the plane, which can affect the performance of the aircraft. Cargo drops are a common occurrence in their world, Geray said, but there is one line of work to which most loadmasters can never get completely comfortable with. Personnel airdrops are a large part of delivering air support throughout Europe and Africa and go smoothly for most throughout their careers, but loadmasters must train to save lives in case of a mishap in the air. Accidents don’t happen often, but the 37th AS stays mission-ready, 24/7 for whatever comes their way. The hardships of meeting the mission do have their payoffs, Geray said. “It’s been my dream to travel the world, and it is eyeopening to see other ways of life,” Geray said. “You learn to appreciate a lot of what you have and realize that there are many ways of doing things, living and being on this planet. This job lets me do that.”

July 31, 2015 NijmegeN, from Page 8 military, military detachment or civilian individual. Those marching as individual military or as part of a military detachment completed a 40 km route each day in uniform with a 22-pound rucksack. Those who chose the civilian option marched a 50 km route without a pack. Another choice, a 30 km option, was available to elderly participants and adolescents. Walkers determined their own marching destiny. Soldiers from the 212th Combat Support Hospital, 30th Med. Bde., marched as a 12-Soldier detachment. During the walk, members of the team hailed the event as a chance to showcase the resiliency of the U.S. Army and build team camaraderie. “This is a great chance to build up the team. We have members from different sections of the hospital here, and it’s a great opportunity to work together and motivate each other,” said Capt. Robert E. Gallimore, 212th CSH battalion officer. “These events mirror what we as Soldiers do as a part of U.S. Army Europe. We are walking as a military team, surrounded by fellowship of other European nations.” Soldiers marching in “civilian” status were required to find their own lodging during the event. Those conducting the march in uniform had another option. “Soldiers marching in uniform during the Vierdaagse are also authorized to stay on the military camp Heumensoord where they are provided with food, showers and a bunk to sleep in,” said Dutch army Cpl. Dennis Fijnvandraat, a medic assigned to the Dutch army’s 471st Mobile Hospital Operations Group. “This is my third time marching, once as a part of a military detachment, and twice as a civilian.” Soldiers walked a different route each day through areas surrounding Nijmegen, ending in the Nijmegen city center at the end of the day’s march. The 50 km and 40 km military walkers began each morning at 4 and 4:30 a.m. respectively, and all walkers were required to check back in with event officials by 5 p.m. or be disqualified. “On our first day, we made it to the finish on time, but

Kaiserslautern American we were cutting it close,” said Staff Sgt. Walter Egan, an all-wheel mechanic assigned to the 7th CSC’s 361st Civil Affairs Brigade. “Each day of the march brings its own challenges, so it is important to train and budget your time so you make it on time each day.” Participants in the march enjoyed views of the Dutch countryside and support from the villages they passed through each day. No matter the time of day, from the early morning into the sweltering heat of the afternoon, residents from the village were outside passing out candy, refilling water sources and cheering on members of the march. “It’s really motivating to see the support we get from these villages as we walk through,” Egan said. “Marching 50 km is hard, but hearing all the locals cheer for us makes it a little easier.” The event culminated in an extended march through the Nijmegen city center, Via Gladiola. The walkers, who walked the final few kilometers of their journey, were showered with gladiolus flowers as they passed thousands of spectators. These flowers represented victory, a tradition derived from the Roman times. “As you come through the center of Nijmegen, cross the finish line and throw the gladiolus flowers you got during the march onto the giant pile in the center of the Wedren (the area where marchers start and finish each day), you know that you’ve accomplished something amazing,” Egan said. Next year marks the 100th Four Days Marches and is expected to attract more than 50,000 participants. Those marching as civilians are only guaranteed entry if they have successfully completed the march four times in the past five years, and all military applicants will gain entry provided there are spaces available. All other applicants will be subject to a lottery. “This march proves a Soldier’s resiliency, gives all participants a chance to walk among military members and civilians from all over the world and is one of the most unique experiences I’ve ever been a part of,” Egan said. “I am going to do everything I can to make sure I march again next year.”

should not get brown at all. Then add the carrots. Stir everything and add salt and ground white pepper. Next, add as much mineral water until all the carrots are covered. Let it come to a boil, then reduce the heat and let the carrots simmer for 20 - 25 minutes. The carrots should be done after that period of time.

What do we need? For four people we will need 400 grams of carrots, half a teaspoon of sugar, salt, ground white pepper, a bottle of mineral water, a teaspoon of butter and a teaspoon of margarine.

Preparation: Start with peeling the carrots. Then cut them in thin slices. Heat a pot, put the butter and the margarine in it to melt. Be careful not to burn the butter. Add the sugar and let it gently caramelize. The mix

Please don’t boil the carrots too long! They will just get mushy. Carrots Vichy mustn’t be mushy. When they’re done, your carrots vichy will be a perfect side dish for grilled chicken, veal or even a nice ribeye steak. Bon appetit! I hope you will join me again next time.

21st TSC conducts interoperability tests on heavy transport trucks

Soldiers from the British army's 19th Tank Transport Squadron secure an M-88 tracked vehicle onto a British army heavy equipment trailer during a heavy equipment transport interoperability test at Coleman Barracks in Mannheim July 24.

Story and photo by Greg Jones 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs MANNHEIM, Germany — A multinational and multiorganizational team led by the 21st Theater Sustainment Command conducted a critical test of heavy transport trailers from three different nations July 24 at Coleman Barracks in Mannheim. This test verified the feasibility of transporting heavy U.S. tracked vehicles across European highways. Military tractor trailer combinations from the United States, Germany and the United Kingdom participated in the test, which was conducted by a diverse team of experts from the 21st TSC’s Theater Logistics Support Center-Europe and the 16th Sustainment Brigade, the 405th Army Field Support Brigade, the German army, the armed forces of the U.K., military equipment manufacturers and contractors, and even the German Technical Inspections Organization, known more commonly as the TÜV. Essentially, the trucks were tested on two important criteria: first, they were tested for their ability to carry

the vehicles in accordance with the applicable European Union roadway safety regulations; next, they were tested for interoperability of systems among the different countries. The various trailers were loaded with a U.S. M1A2 Abrams Main Battle Tank and then an M-88 tracked recovery vehicle; weights and measures were then taken for each axle. These vehicles are two of the heaviest vehicles in service and are needed regularly in theater for training and rotational forces. The German TÜV verified the weights and measurements and confirmed they were within tolerance of the EU roadway standards. Technicians from the manufacturers of the trucks and trailers were available to provide additional specific technical expertise concerning the capabilities and configuration of each system. The British army and the German trailer systems met EU standards, but the U.S. trailer exceeded axle weight restrictions with both the M1A2 and the M-88 because the trailer distributes the weight of its cargo across only five axles, while the other two systems employ a seven-axle setup. For this reason, the interoperability test was set up to ensure that

Airmen form up after Ramstein’s second tri-wing run of the year July 23 on Ramstein. Events like these help bring the installation together and collectively work on fitness and resilience. The regularly scheduled tri-wing run is one of the few times where all three wings on Ramstein come together to form Team Ramstein.

U.S. trucks could haul the seven-axle British and German trailers in order to meet EU regulations. During the interoperability test, they found that the U.S. truck was capable of hauling the German trailer, and the British and German trucks were both able to haul any of the three trailers. The ability to work seamlessly with regional partners is critical in supporting multinational operations and main-

taining rotational forces in Europe, according to Helmut Haufe, director of the TLSC-E, which was an integral leading agency in the test. “As we work more and more with our NATO partners in the region, interoperability becomes even more important,” Haufe said. “The ability of these transports to work together across national systems is critical for future operations in support of NATO and this test confirms that ability.”

A team of technical experts including personnel from the 21st Theater Sustainment Command, the U.K., the German army, U.S. military equipment manufacturers and even the German Technical Inspections Organization compare notes after several tractor trailer combinations were tested with both an M1A1 Abrams tank and an M-88 tracked recovery vehicle during a heavy equipment transport interoperability test at Coleman Barracks in Mannheim July 24.

The conclusion of Mannie’s travels: Amsterdam Express Story and photos by Mannie Daly Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation summer intern


msterdam has always been at the top of my list of mustsee places in Europe. I heard much about it and was adamant about seeing the canals and narrow houses for myself. Shortly after arriving, I headed straight for the Anne Frank House, assuming the line would lengthen quickly. Unfortunately, I did not book tickets in advance and they were sold out. To see the hiding place of Anne Frank where she went to write her diary would have been an incredible experience. I suggest that anyone planning a visit to Amsterdam buy tickets in advance to ensure a visit. Instead, I headed off to the flower market, which is definitely worth a visit. An array of tulips, Holland’s unofficial national flower, are for sale in nearly every color imaginable. Following the flower market, I paid a visit to Vondelpark, the largest park in Amsterdam, and

the most well known in the Netherlands. Renting a bike would have been wise prior to going to this massive park especially since bike rentals in Amsterdam are as cheap as $5. Vondelpark is beautiful, relaxing and a great spot to escape the hustle and bustle

The Rijksmuseum which displays the history of the Netherlands.

of the city. The park is conveniently located right next to the world-famous Van Gogh Museum. As its name implies, masterpieces by Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh are on display. I suggest buying tickets to this sought after museum in advance considering it is one of the 25 most popular museums in the world. A discount combo ticket can be purchased for museums in the Museum Quarter that includes the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum. After my visit to Vondelpark, I made my way to the other side of town where many of the canal cruises depart. Amsterdam offers a wide variety of boat and bus touring opportunities. I opted for the one-hour boat tour. The canal tour takes you past some of Amsterdam’s famous landmarks, all while providing useful information and fun facts about the city. Did you know there are more bikes than there are people living in Amsterdam? I encourage everyone to view Amsterdam from the water; whether it be by a one-hour canal cruise or a 24-hour Hop on-Hop off cruise boat. I stopped by the Waterlooplein Flea Market follow-

ing the relaxing canal cruise. Great for souvenir shopping, the market sells everything from magnets and key chains, to shoes and shirts. The flea market is just down the road from Amsterdam’s infamous Red Light District. My time in Amsterdam came to a close but made for an unforgettable day. It is a beautiful, well-kept city, making every walk a scenic one. While I made the most of my time in Amsterdam,

there is plenty I did not get to do and see this time around. I am eagerly awaiting the day I make it back to Amsterdam. Mannie Daly is an intern at Outdoor Recreation and the Marketing Office.

Ticks: preventing tick-borne diseases during summer months by Staff Sgt. Ashley Peterson 86th Aerospace Medicine Squadron Public Health Summer is the ideal time for outdoor activities and getaways with family and friends. But with increased outdoor activities comes an increased likelihood of tick exposure, which are active from April to September. Ticks are a concern because they can carry pathogens that cause human and animal diseases. Most ticks have four life stages and must eat blood to survive each stage. It is during the feeding stage that ticks transmit pathogens to animals and humans. Ticks attach to a host, such as a bird or mammal, and suck on its blood for days before detaching to prepare for the next stage. If the host animal has a blood borne infection, then the tick will ingest it. At its next feeding, it can then transmit any acquired diseases to another host. “In recent years, veterinary and military treatment facilities in the EUCOM AOR have submitted, on average, 200 ticks per year to the Public Health CommandEurope Entomological Sciences Division for testing, with infection rates ranging from 5 percent to 15 percent,” said U.S. Army PHC-E Epidemiologist Fritz Castillo during a telephone interview. “The majority of ticks that are submitted to the PHC-E ESD are from the Bavaria and Rheinland-Pfalz regions, and 50 percent of ticks that are submitted by MTFs are removed from children.” Ticks submitted for testing have tested positive for

Anaplasma and Ehrlichia species as well as Lyme disease and tick-borne encephalitis, the two most important tickborne diseases of concern, since they are endemic to Germany and spreading geographically. Disease Information Lyme disease and TBE are transmitted through the bite of infected Ixodes ricinus ticks. Lyme disease is caused by the Borrelia burgdorferi bacterium and TBE is caused by the tick-borne encephalitis virus of the Flaviviridae family. “Although ticks submitted for testing have tested positive for the TBE virus, the bacterium Anaplasma phagocytophilum, which causes anaplasmosis, and the Ehrlichia bacterial species, which cause ehrlichiosis, the most prevalent tick-borne disease is Lyme disease,” Castillo said. “And of the 256 Lyme disease cases diagnosed from 2010 to 2012, only 37 percent exhibited signs of erythema migrans skin lesion, the typical bulls-eye rash associated with Lyme disease.” This high asymptomatic rate is why the public health community recommends that any individual who has had a tick attached for longer than a day be tested for Lyme disease, rash or no rash. Left untreated, Lyme disease can progress to the late stage and become chronic, leading to musculoskeletal, neurological or cardiac problems. Disease Prevention There are precautions to take to prevent or reduce chances of getting Lyme dis-

ease or other tick-borne diseases. Here are a few tips from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC): •  Before  going  outdoors,  know where to expect ticks — ticks like moist and humid environments near wooded or grassy areas. •  Always  walk  in  the  center of trails to avoid contact with ticks; use insect repellents containing 20 percent or more DEET, a chemical found in most insect repellents, on exposed skin and soak protective clothing, boots or shoes and gear with products containing 0.5 percent permethrin. •  After  coming  indoors,  check clothing for ticks. •  Shower soon upon return  to reduce risk of getting Lyme disease since showering may help remove unattached ticks.

•  Don’t  forget  to  check  your and especially your children’s bodies for ticks — conduct a full-body check paying close attention for ticks under the arms, in and around the ears, inside belly buttons, behind the knees, between legs, around the waist, and in and around hair. •  Use  tick  control  products to prevent your pets from bringing ticks into the home.

Watch for signs of illness such as fever or rash after the bite. Symptoms may appear anywhere between three to 30 days after exposure. See your health care provider if you develop signs or symptoms after the bite.

Sending in Ticks for Testing Tick-borne diseases can be hard to diagnose, but early recognition and treatment can decrease the risk of serious Tick Removal complications. If you would If  you  do  find  a  tick  like to get the tick tested after attached to your body, follow removing it, you can store it in these steps from the CDC: a sealable container or plastic •  Grasp  the  tick with  fine- bag and bring it to the Public tipped tweezers as close to Health Epidemiology section the skin as possible, pulling at the Ramstein clinic.

its associated hardware were installed to enable 24/7 access to Vogelweh Fitness Center. Another major project to ensure the safety of customers will be a four-month fire detection installation project starting Monday. Though the scope of the project is large, the facility will stay open. The VFC has partnered with the 86th Civil Engineer Squadron to design a phased approach to the project, allowing to keep half of the gym floor open. Despite the decrease in space, they will reposition equipment along the gym floor so customers will still be able to complete their workout. Portions of the project require closing the locker rooms, therefore, customers will have to find an alternate shower plan such as their home, dorm or lodging. Additionally, new resistance and cardio equipment is on order for all three fitness centers run by the 786th Force Support Squadron. The northside and southside fitness centers on Ramstein will see new equipment including resistance/pulley training equipment installed in the parent-child rooms. VFC has a project on the books that will convert a racquetball court to a parent-child room. For more information, call the Vogelweh Fitness Center manager at 489-7329.

Lovely Lake Bostalsee

Story and photos by Cheryl Koller At the very end of summer last year, my husband and I took a bike ride and got lost. Unfortunately, this is not unusual for us. However, we do love stumbling upon something new and this particular day led us to Lake Bostalsee. We were dressed in our normal “Harley” attire, which meant we did not have flip-flops and swimwear so we added this gem to our GPS and saved it under ‘Things to do’ Next Summer.

Now that summer is here again, we decided to repeat the trip (this time with lake attire).

swimming and miniature golf, just to name a few. They also offer surfing and sailing schools and diving.

Lake Bostalsee is located in the nature reserve Saar-Hunsrück in the northern part of Saarland. The lake is 120 hectares (almost 300 acres) and is 20 meters deep at its deepest point. This makes it the largest recreational lake in Southwest Germany. Approximately 10% of the lake is classified as a protective zone and is marked off from any water sports. This area is a refuge for rare animals and plants. The other 90% of the lake is set up for pure fun!

If you plan to enjoy one of the two beaches, there is a small entrance fee of €3 for adults and €1.50 for children over 6 years of age. There are food and drink vendors set up on the beach, but you are welcome to bring your own. We even saw several people with grills preparing their dinner while taking in a game of beach volleyball.

There are two areas adjacent to each other (across the water) that we found offering numerous activities on and beside the water — windsurfing, sailing, biking, hiking, fishing,

Lake Bostalsee is just an hour Northwest of Ramstein. For more information, visit their website www. bostalsee.de. About the author: Cheryl Koller is a native of Georgia. She is a DOD spouse, mom of 4 daughters (2 adults, 2 teens), thrill-seeker, avid traveler, and lover of food and wine. She is a self-proclaimed freedom-preneur and blogger currently living in Ramstein with her family.

If you would like to spend more than one day, there is a large campground with more than 400 campsites for RVs and tents. There is also a wellness center with a family swimming pool, indoor activity area for small children, pool tables and a grocery store. My favorite thing about this lake is the paddleboats! These are not just your everyday, ordinary paddleboats. You get to glide around the lake in a swan. It’s the small things in life that sometimes make my day.

Explore your new home! Great city trips, fun playgrounds for kids, delicious recipes and much more.
