D-Day airdrop remembered, relived Paratroopers jump onto the Iron Mike drop zone June 8 in Sainte-Mere-Eglise, France. More than 600 U.S., German, Dutch and French service members jumped to honor the paratroopers who jumped into Normandy on D-Day. The event was one of several commemorations of the 70th anniversary of D-Day operations conducted by Allied forces during World War II June 5 to 6, 1944. More than 650 U.S. military personnel have joined troops from several NATO nations to participate in ceremonies to honor the events at the invitation of the French government.

Remembering D-Day: Reflect on past, live in present, secure future by Brig. Gen. Patrick X. Mordente 86th Airlift Wing commander The events of Operation Overlord, the invasion of Normandy, 70 years ago hold a special place in the hearts of many people, especially those who experienced it for themselves or knew someone who lived through it. Remembering D-Day is as important to them as it is for those of us wearing the uniform today. To ensure we properly remembered the contributions of the Airmen, Soldiers and Sailors who participated in D-Day, the Airmen of the 86th Airlift Wing poured countless hours over several months into planning, coordinating and executing multiple events to honor the veterans who participated in the momentous occasion that changed the tides of war in Europe and led to Allied victory. I’m proud of Team Ramstein’s efforts to remember those who sacrificed everything to secure a better future for us all. Specifically, the wing worked tirelessly to bring a historic C-47 along with veterans Bill Prindible and Bud Rice, who flew one like it the night of the D-Day

airdrops, to Ramstein to share their collective experience. Additionally, we sent more than 60 Airmen and four C-130Js to Normandy to provide flyover and airdrop support for more than 25 different commemorative events. Starting on Memorial Day, when the C-47 known as Whiskey 7 arrived, and continuing to the last Sunday when more than 800 paratroopers from multiple nations jumped into the Sainte-Mere-Eglise Iron Mike drop zone to recreate the airborne operations from June 4, 1944, our Airmen did a great service and paid the proper respect to the men and women of “The Greatest Generation.” The past few weeks also reminded me how lucky I am to serve our great nation. For the past two weeks, I was privileged to bear witness to and interact with living, breathing history. Most importantly, the past several days have allowed me to reflect on the awe-inspiring efforts of the Airmen, Soldiers and Sailors who came before me. I’ve thought quite a bit about the airmanship lieutenants William Prindible and Julian “Bud” Rice displayed on that dark and dangerous night

to deliver Pfc. Leslie Cruise and his fellow paratroopers into Sainte-Mere-Eglise. I’ve thought a great deal about the brave men who stormed Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword beaches from Higgins boats under withering fire. But I’ve mostly thought of the 9,387 veterans who died and 1,557 who went missing during the Allied attempt to secure a foothold in France to defeat a tough, battle-hardened enemy. The last couple of weeks reminded me – and should remind you – of why it is important to remember D-Day and the people who participated in it and why we continue to serve today. The profession of arms is a noble endeavor worthy of our best efforts. It’s what the nation expects of us, and to do any less than our best is a disservice to the men and women who came before us and will come after us. We all have different reasons for joining the service, but I believe the warrior ethos to defend the homeland, protect the rights of all men and women, and ensure freedom to all who seek it is what motivates us and keeps us on See reflect, next page

Strengthening the team COMMENTARY

by Lt. Col. Troy C. Austin 86th Security Forces Squadron commander


he Air Force has provided mission, vision and priorities. Transforming vision into executable policy requires charismatic, energetic, inspirational yet humble leaders focused on Airmen and the mission. It is important to remember that being a leader is not tied to rank or position and it’s not about rewards. Leadership is about taking care of the people who complete the mission. Fact is, if you were lucky, someone in your life or your career took you by the hand or the scruff of the neck and showed you how to succeed; they showed you how to win. My mentors showed me one of the keys is to be avail-

able for your Airmen and not just on Facebook, Twitter or instant messenger. Airmen must know and believe that, if they have a problem, you are there for them; look them in the eyes and let them know you care. Just as important, give them accurate, honest feedback — the good and the bad. Warren G. Bennis, Ph.D, the founding chair of the leadership institute, said, “The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born (and) there is a genetic factor to leadership.” This myth asserts that people simply either have certain charismatic qualities or not. That’s nonsense. In fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born.” This quote is personal to me. Early on in my career I was lucky enough to work for retired Col.

William “Wild Bill” Renfroe. He was a constant throughout my career and quick to tell others what right looked like. Even though I wasn’t born a leader, he was a mentor in a long line of many who held the hammer and chisels to smooth out the rough edges to help make me the leader I am today. As leaders we must forge our replacements and prepare them for the operational environment. Most of us have benefited from mentors throughout our lives. We owe Airmen our “been there, done that” expertise. We need to teach them the “smart Airman, wise Airman” concept. Simply put, a smart Airman learns from his or her mistakes, but a wise Airman learns from the smart Airman’s mistakes. We owe it to our Air Force to train wise Airmen, helping them avoid pitfalls and bad decisions.


Nobody ever said leadership is easy; it is a challenge that goes beyond mentoring. It requires the ability to form consensus, build teams and pave the way for cooperation. To get there, we need to strengthen our team with boots on the ground and honest, accurate feedback and guidance. This has to take place every day. There is no on and off switch. It is not event driven, and it is not done in turns. For those of us in the 1 percent who joined to serve this great nation, we clearly have answered a higher calling, and that higher calling demands higher standards. When all is said and done, leaders are not measured by individual accomplishments, but by their character and commitment to the Airmen they serve. AdvantiPro’s KA Team

Vice commander honors veterans at Picauville by 1st Lt. Marie Denson U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa Public Affairs PICAUVILLE, France — A German army band’s music echoed through the air as service members from the U.S. Air Force and Army and German and French armies marched together to the Picauville memorial. The sound of roaring engines from the C-130s filled the sky as they flew overhead, and the D-Day ceremony was officially underway. Lt. Gen. Tom Jones, U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa vice commander, stood on the grassy mound in the center of town looking out over the crowd of townspeople, NATO partners and re-enactors who provided a sense of nostalgia. He began by speaking in French, thanking the veterans, family members, militaries and those present. Jones focused on the veterans, telling the stories of Army Air Corps Lt. Col. Bruce Parcell, who died during the liberation of Europe, and 1st Lt. Billie Harris, who was shot down during World War II. His wife didn’t know what had happened to her husband until the members of Picauville, France, reached out to let her know the location of Harris’s final resting place. “Your commitment in the preservation of their story represents our shared history and partnership,” Jones said. “These men saved our way of life; they fought for freedom and liberty ... freedom for people they had never met.” Jones spoke about fighting alongside each other, preserving freedom for future generations and the formation of NATO, which has made anniversary, from Page 1

deeds the Allies accomplished here in Normandy.” Translated, the plaque reads, “From July 3 to Aug. 14, 1944, Franquetot Castle housed the 358th Fighter Group, which operated Advanced Land Ground A-14. Let’s remember the pilots and ground personnel who died for the liberation of France.” Flying P-47 Thunderbolt aircraft, the 358th Fighter Group’s mission leading up to the invasion of Normandy was to attack enemy marshaling yards, airfields and communication nodes, as well as escort bombers to drop zones. On D-Day, the “Orange Tails,” so called for their distinctive orange tail markings, flew troop carrier escort missions over Normandy. Once the Allies secured their foothold in France, the 358th took on the role of ground support, including attacking enemy tanks, vehicles, gun emplacements and anti-aircraft artillery, as well as fly interdiction, escort and close-air support duties. During World War II, the castle was used as the headquarters for the German and later U.S. armies. “It’s important to remember that the Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen who participated in Operation Overlord came here

former enemies into today’s greatest allies. “Americans have never been alone in defending freedom ... as we continue to move forward, we will continue to be faced with challenges,” Jones said. “Together we can strive for a world whole, free and at peace. Our strong bond to support each other in difficult times is paramount. Even more so is the NATO Alliance, born out of World War II.”

to liberate, not conquer,” Mordente said. “The strength of the Allies’ conviction to do what was necessary was vital for peace and security in the world.” In keeping with the theme for U.S. participation in commemorating the 70th anniversary of D-Day, “Honoring the History, Securing the Future,” the general confirmed that Americans continue to honor the history of D-Day and today share strong bonds with European Allies and partners. “Indeed we remain indebted to the veterans whose service demonstrated the selfless actions of the ‘Greatest Generation,’” the general said. “We are grateful that out of the rubble of war, free nations conceived of and built a better future that we all enjoy today.” After the ceremony, the townspeople gathered to take photos with the general and 86th AW Command Chief Master Sgt. Frank Batten III, along with U.S. Air Force members from the 703rd Munitions Squadron, Volkel Air Base, the Netherlands, and the 37th Airlift Squadron and 435th Contingency Readiness Group from Ramstein. After C-130Js from Ramstein flew overhead, audience members made their way to the castle for a tour and guest lecture describing the history and the important role it played during the war.

While the general focused on lauding the veterans of the Second World War, he reminded everyone that as we honor the past we must secure the future. “It’s important to remember and respect the actions of the brave young men and women who fought on hallowed ground, but we must not forget we owe support to our service members today as they continue to defend our shared values,” he said.

the right path. It’s the same ethos that led to the founding of our nation — the same ethos that led the more than 150,000 Airmen, Soldiers and Sailors to do what was asked of them in the air, on the ground and on the seas at Normandy. Much like the men and women involved in the Normandy invasion and liberation of Europe so many years ago, most Airmen serving today entered the service at a time of great conflict for our nation. Then and now, Airmen step up when our country needs us the most.

Many things have changed in our military over the last 70 years and will continue to change, but the one constant that won’t change is the commitment to defend our nation while protecting the world’s freedom. The valor displayed by our heroes in Normandy paved the way for future generations to build upon their legacy. Today’s Airmen have picked up the torch and continue to build upon that heritage so future generations can look back with pride. Witnessing our Airmen here and in Normandy pay


respect to the brave souls who fought during D-Day is a career highlight for me. I’m confident that every person who had the opportunity to interact with our heroes is better because of the exchange. I walk a little bit taller knowing the men and women who participated in Operation Overlord made what we do today possible. So remember the sacrifices of our D-Day heroes and pay tribute to their bravery. They built the platform of honor that we stand upon today and continue to build for our Airmen of the future.

Veterans relive Operation Neptune Story and photo by Airman 1st Class Jordan Castelan 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs NORMANDY, France — Hollowed soil, possessed by a war machine denying liberty and freedom; hedgerows lined with hostile weaponry; dreary skies lit by gunfire launched from the ground; two Army Air Corp pilots flying into the face of danger. How different today is from that, though the plane is still the same. William “Bill” Prindible and Julian “Bud” Rice once again soared over the fields of Normandy marking the 70th anniversary of D-Day. “It’s a fantastic moment,” Rice said. “It is a bit nicer now though. I have a little less to worry about.” Seventy years ago, Prindible and Rice were piloting C-47 Skytrains with the 37th Troop Carrier Squadron, the legacy unit of Ramstein’s 37th Airlift Squadron, into Axis-defended air-

space to drop paratroopers near Sainte-MereEglise, France. “The C-47 is a very lovable aircraft,” Rice said. “There are quite a few unique traits about it. The wings tend to flap around a bit like a bird, and it likes to bounce around a little while flying, but I would never trade the feeling of piloting it.” Unlike today, they had to fly their aircraft nearly wingtip to wingtip, Rice said. The skies were filled with hundreds of C-47 Skytrains to complete a mission that would now be handled in an entirely different manner. “We’ve been having an amazing experience,” Prindible said. “It’s been quite some time since I have been back here, but I have been nothing but pleased.” Due in part to the effort put forth by 37th AS Airmen, flying over Normandy inside a C-47 that was part of the same adventure Prindible and Rice once took became a reality.

Bill Prindible, a veteran U.S. Army pilot who flew on D-Day, takes the controls of a C-47 Skytrain during a flight over Normandy June 5. Prindible was visiting Normandy as part of the 70th anniversary of the invasion of Normandy. More than 60 Ramstein Airmen traveled to Normandy to honor the sacrifices made by veterans of World War II.

WWII vet honors fallen comrade in France Story and photos by Brandon Beach 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs SAINT-AVOLD, France — Nearly 70 years ago, on June 7, 1944, Pfc. Leslie Cruise and Pfc. Richard Vargas found themselves under enemy attack by German forces. The place was an old farm road outside the town of Sainte-Mere-Eglise, France. The two privates first class were Army paratroopers with H Co., 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 82nd Airborne and part of the airborne assault during the D-Day invasion of Normandy. With mortar shells landing all around them, the two men took cover at the edge of the road flopping themselves belly first onto the dirt, inches from each other. One of the shells landed next to Vargas’ right leg. It was at that moment that Cruise heard a whimper from his friend. “I turned him over face up. His whole right side from thigh to ankle was covered with blood. I tried to bandage him,” said Cruise, as he stood at Lorraine American Cemetery and Memorial June 2 to pay tribute to his fallen comrade 70 years after that fatal day in Normandy. “He saved me by being there. To this day, I don’t forget that.” Accompanied by an honor guard of U.S. paratroopers from the Kaiserslautern-based 5th Quartermaster Theater Aerial Delivery Company, 21st Theater Sustainment Command, and the Ramstein-based 435th Contingency Response Group, Cruise, now 89, laid a wreath of pink lilies and yellow roses next to the grave of his wartime companion during an afternoon remembrance ceremony under blue skies. “This is a day of remembrance, something that happened 70 years ago on June 7,” said Cruise, as he rested his hand on the top of Vargas’ grave.

“Perhaps now I can set it aside and go on without it, but I doubt it.” The ceremony, organized by the National Warplane Museum, concluded with the playing of taps by an Army bugler. For Cruise, this was the first stop of an extended tour that took him to other 70th anniversary D-Day events around France, including the C-47 “Whiskey 7” flyover of Normandy. “It’s a sobering and contemplative time for many of us. It’s also a time of personal thanks,” Cruise said. “We did what we were supposed to do. Some made it, and some didn’t. You can’t forget it.”

21st TSC hosts resiliency course for senior leaders

Story and photo by Staff Sgt. Warren W. Wright Jr. 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs

For more than five years, the Army has worked toward developing resiliency in Soldiers and ensuring they have the skills necessary to bounce back from adversity and focus on the positive experiences in their lives. For the 21st Theater Sustainment Command and other Army organizations within the KMC, working toward resiliency starts at the top. “We’re talking about strong leadership, Army strong, resiliency,” said Maj. Gen. John R. O’Connor, commanding general of the 21st TSC, to senior leaders from across the KMC who came together May 30 on Vogelweh to learn about the leader’s role in resiliency. O’Connor said leaders must be resilient. “We as leaders need to not only set the example with all that we do, but that we do it in a positive sense that creates an atmosphere where people want to wake up in the morning, come to work and do the right thing,” he said. With recent changes to the

Comprehensive Soldier and Family Fitness program, commands all the way down at the company level are now required to maintain master resilience trainers, making even the youngest of leaders responsible for resilience training within their organizations. The course allowed MRTs and program coordinators to “train leaders on resilience and at the perspective of MRTs so that they have an understanding of what resilience is, what right looks like and so they can ensure that when the MRTs are training, they are doing it to standard,” said Erika Turner, 21st TSC’s Comprehensive Soldier and Family Fitness program manager. “It’s a big added value to leaders,” Turner said. “If you’re a leader, you want a Soldier who operates at a higher performance and is more aware of themselves and how they communicate with others.” Having the ability to bounce back from adversity and to keep “hunting the good stuff” are key aspects of Soldier performance that keep units running smoothly and effectively. “One of the major pieces of resiliency is that it enhances the performance of the Soldier,” Turner said. “People who are looking at life from

an optimistic standpoint are going to identify and focus on those positive things and become better performers.” While the training is intended to help leaders identify requirements for their MRTs and ensure Soldiers are being trained in resiliency techniques, leaders who exhibit strong resilient qualities also help Soldiers to become more resilient. “The senior leader’s role in resil-

iency is very important,” said Sgt. 1st Class Ronnell Foster, 21st TSC’s CSF2 NCOIC. “Younger Soldiers look up to their leaders and if their leaders are able to show resiliency, it will help the younger troops believe more in the program. “As long as you’re open-minded and can live by the program, it will be easier for junior Soldiers to pick it up,” Foster added.

CCAF: a lighthouse for enlisted searching for education by Senior Airman William Blankenship 42nd Air Base Wing Public Affairs MAXWELL AIR FORCE BASE, Ala. — The Community College of the Air Force serves as a lighthouse for enlisted Airmen searching for a path to receive college credits for their military service while on the road to getting their associate degrees. Established April 1, 1972, the CCAF is the world’s only degree granting institution for enlisted personnel and is regionally accredited through Air University by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. “(The) CCAF evolved when senior leadership recognized the need to enhance the development of NCOs as managers of Air Force resources,” said Chief Master Sgt. Andrew T. Hollis, the CCAF vice commandant. An education study revealed that Air Force technical training often exceeded standards set by civilian institutions. This was followed by a series of conferences that laid out the framework to translate the rigorous technical training into regionally accredited college credit. After the college was approved by Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. John Ryan in 1971, the secretary of the Air Force endorsed the CCAF in 1972, paving the way to later be approved by Congress and President Gerald Ford. “This is noteworthy because (the) CCAF is the only institution in the world solely dedicated to

CCAF on enlistment. They will maintain student status, providing them an opportunity to earn a diploma, as long as they are in the military. Only those who are wounded warriors may continue to pursue their certificate post separation. “Prior to my 2003 deployment to Iraq, I had completed all of the necessary courses to graduate, but for some reason one of my classes wasn’t being reflected as completed,” said retired Staff Sgt. Jason Ellis, the first wounded warrior to earn a CCAF degree after separation. “A short time after I had gotten injured and returned home, I was no longer fit for duty and got medically discharged.” Shortly after the decision was made to allow wounded veterans to continue to pursue their degrees, Ellis was notified of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act and how it allowed combat wounded, injured or ill Airmen, who were enrolled into the CCAF program prior to being honorably discharged, the opportunity to fulfill the requirements to graduate. Like Ellis, many Airmen value finishing what they started, and the father of six explained his desire for receiving his CCAF diploma, even though he has his bachelor’s degree from elsewhere and is no longer serving in the Air Force. “Growing up, my dad had instilled in me that you must finish what you start, even if along the way you decide it’s not what you thought it was going to be,” Ellis said. “To me, finishing what you start helps build character. I also wanted to teach my kids the importance of this to make sure to set the example.” To date, six wounded warriors have finished their journey in earning their degree from the CCAF after returning to civilian life. “The legislative change that allows wounded warriors to continue pursuing their CCAF degree even after separation or retirement provides those who have given so much of themselves to our Air Force a valuable tool in their transition to civilian life,” said Senior Master Sgt. Christopher Leo, the superintendent of enrollment management at the CCAF. “This opportunity was earned through their blood, sweat and tears during wartime situations, and we are proud to offer this opportunity to all wounded warriors.” Now, over 40 years old, the CCAF is steadily increasing its graduate numbers, further distancing itself from most competitive institutions. In 2013, the school recorded its largest graduation number with 20,661 students receiving diplomas. “We are the world’s greatest Air Force, powered by Airmen and fueled by innovation,” said Chief Master Sgt. Harry Hutchinson, the 42nd Air Base Wing command chief. “This vision could not happen without confident, well-trained, critical thinking enlisted Airmen of which the CCAF program is the foundation. The CCAF is an invaluable enabling program with significant return on investment for both the Air Force and the member. I am a better Airman because of it.” As the number of enlisted Airmen with degrees increases, the CCAF is expanding and taking opportunities further by instituting the Air Force Credentialing Opportunities On-Line, or COOL, program. “The (Air Force) COOL Program will institutionalize Air Force credentialing programs and allow Airmen to go to a single location and see the various certifications applicable to their career fields,” Hollis said. “Professional certifications formally enumerate an Airmen’s education, training and skill. When coupled with an associate degree from CCAF, an Airman is well-postured for future employment, because they demonstrate a high degree of technical competence in addition to a well-rounded battery of knowledge and qualifications. The degree and certifications officially capture and quantify this. “

The military is a microcosm of society; however, drug use does not run rampant through the ranks as it does outside of the military, mainly because of the programs in place to deter substance abuse. The Drug Demand Reduction Program uses a computer system to pick random individuals from around the installation for a urinalysis screening. The screening provides a process to detect and deter the wrongful use of drugs. “It is entirely up to the computer,” said Master Sgt. Kimberly Nilles, Drug Demand Reduction Center assistant program manager. “You might not be selected for two years, but your buddy might get selected every month for a year.” The random aspect is very important to the deterrence and is the spirit of the program, Nilles said.

“By random selection testing, we can see what segments have issues if there are any,” said Capt. Justin Blood, 86th Airlift Wing judge advocate general law division chief. “You need to weigh the value of a couple of minutes to a couple of hours of getting high with the impact it is going to have on your career and possibly your life.” Testing positive for drug use can result in a dishonorable discharge, an Article 15, reduction in rank, forfeiture of pay, general courts martial and confinement. Blood said drug users need to be prepared to lose their job. “Everyone is aware they can be tested at any time, and it is not a smart choice,” Nilles said. Contrary to popular belief, testing of multiple samples at once is an urban myth and each sample is tested individually, Nilles said. Being in the military is a privilege, not a right. Programs like the Drug Demand Reduction Program ensure the Air Force retains the right personnel and identifies individuals who abuse their privilege.

PAX Airmen make summertime travel easy by Senior Airman Holly Mansfield 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs With summer starting and more people changing duty stations, members who want to take space-available flights will need to bring all the information and documentation with them, so they can get on the first possible flight. “A member must first go to our passenger service center to sign up for a space-available flight,” said Airman 1st Class Jeffrey Wade, 721st Aerial Port Squadron passenger service specialist. “They need their passport or ID if they are active duty, leave form and command sponsorship letter for dependents. After that, they wait for roll call so they can be marked present.” Anderson said the member must show up an hour early before roll call to be marked present for their flight. If a member shows up too late, they might not be able to be marked present and won’t be able to get on that flight. “We process as many passengers as we can, as quickly as possible and we do everything we can to fill every flight, but there will be times when things are out of our control,” said Tech. Sgt. Charity Anderson, 721st APS passenger service shift supervisor. “Be financially ready to pay for a hotel room or lodging if you don’t fly out the

Passengers await the arrival of space-available flights to different destinations around the world at the Ramstein Passenger Terminal. With summer starting, travelers may find it hard to catch a flight. With the required documentation and help from PAX terminal Airmen, commuting to different locations can be a breeze.

first day you come to the terminal. The average wait time to catch a flight for active duty members on leave is about a week. For dependents and retirees it is anywhere from two weeks to a month.” Members can consider different terminals to fly to, such as Dover Air Force Base, Delaware, when traveling to the states on a space-available flight. “Everyone wants to go to Baltimore but it’s the hardest

destination to get to during the summer,” said Senior Master Sgt. Timothy Moncman, 721st APS passenger superintendent of flight services. “Be ready to go to other available east coast terminals or anywhere in the states.” An average of 650 people per day process through the terminal during the summer months. Members have several options to stay entertained while waiting for a flight. “We have the USO, fam-

ily lounge, playground and the Kaiserslautern Military Community Center across the street for passengers waiting for their flights,” Anderson said. “The family lounge has toys for children to play with and cribs for babies. There is also Wi-Fi in the terminal sponsored by the USO. Anderson said if a dependent is over 10 years old, they are required to have an ID card, and all active-duty members must be on leave before

signing up for a flight. “Our Facebook page displays 72 hours of flight data, so that is a great avenue if people are trying to get information for a flight,” Anderson said. “We also have the updated phone system, so people can get information there also by calling 479-4440 or 06371-46-4440.” With patience, flexibility and the proper paper work, members can be on their way to destinations around the world.

Secretary of defense visits MK Air Base by Spc. Glenn M. Anderson U.S. Army Europe Public Affairs MIHAIL KOGALNICEANU AIR BASE, Romania — Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel visited Mihail Kogalniceanu Air Base June 4 and 5 as a part of his 14th international trip, a broad-ranging, 12-day tour that brought him to the near and far East as well as Europe. The secretary conducted the visit in order to see base facilities used to accommodate Soldiers returning from Afghanistan during the drawdown first-hand. After receiving a welcome, a presentation and a situational update from

base leaders, Hagel took time to thank all the service members in the small briefing room for their hard work here. Hagel described American personnel serving at MK as “critical” to the development of an American and Romanian partnership and understanding of mutual interests as well as common challenges and opportunities. He also praised the hospitality of the Romanian people. “You are really helping to redefine a new world order,” Hagel said. “What we do here and how we do it will have very significant consequences in the future of our world.” The secretary met with key Romanian and U.S. leaders as well

as service members during his visit. The stop also gives Hagel a chance to visit Sailors aboard a U.S. Navy ship in-port in the region and to consult with Romania’s minister of defense on ways to strengthen mutual security. Romanian Minister of National Defense Mircea Duşa, who also participated in the briefings, thanked U.S. service members for their efforts through an interpreter. Maj. Gen. John O’Connor, commanding general of the 21st Theater Sustainment Command, also participated in the tour, meeting with service members, encouraging their efforts and thanking them for their hard work. “Raise the bar of excellence each

and every day,” O’Connor said. “We have an important mission here … but we will be ready. “I am absolutely proud of you all,” he added. “Although the leadership may change, your job remains the same.” Prior to the service members departing, Hagel said history is being made. “What you are doing has never been done before … let the history books show that,” he said. Hagel’s last scheduled stop was in Normandy, France, where he joined President Barack Obama and other world leaders for a ceremony commemorating the 70th anniversary of the World War II Allied invasion of France.

Capt. Spanky’s off-leash tour Hi everyone! I just got back from Normandy. I wanted to travel with the 37th Airlift Squadron to commemorate the 70th anniversary of D-Day, but I was grounded due to an unfortunate incident (I can’t help it if I drool on the avionics; I’m a dog after all.) Anyways, my human and I decided to paw the bill and get out there on our own. D-Day or not, this place was awesome. I’ve never felt this welcomed as a tourist before. The people were friendly, the food was great and everyone was in on the celebration. At first I thought this was because of D-Day, but after a pleasant conversation with a lovely

French poodle, it turns out that even though the D-Day celebration reminds Normandy residents of the events from 70 years ago, the population there is always happy to see tourists. I was happy to hear that because we wanted to explore. And explore we did. We saw medieval castles, toured many of the museums, spent some time digging in the national forests and doggy-paddled up and down the beach. By the time the week was over, I was so tired I could barely chew my kibble. I definitely recommend visiting Normandy.

Thursday is a religious holiday in Germany, called “Fronleichnam,” or Corpus Christi Day. Roman-Catholics in Germany and Europe celebrate the church fest, which is observed 10 days after Pentecost. In some, but not all, German states, Fronleichnam is an official holiday. Stores, banks and official institutions are closed in Rheinland-Pfalz, Saarland, Baden-Württemberg, Hessen, Bayern, in some communities in Sachsen and Thüringen, and in areas with a mainly Catholic population. The word Fronleichnam derives from old German and corresponds to the Latin word “Corpus Domini,” or body of the Lord. In 1264, Pope Urban IV ordered the entire Catholic church to observe the feast of Corpus Christi.The fest commemorates Christ’s Last Supper the day before he died. It honors the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist. Today, the church holiday is a colorful event featuring solemn processions through the streets, which are decorated with flowers, little birch trees and church banners. Four altars are

set up on the procession route to symbolize the four stops of Christ’s way to the cross, known as the “Stations of the Cross.” A priest leads the procession and carries the Holy of Holies under a baldachin. Then the ministrants, communion children of that year and worshippers follow. At the altars, the procession stops and participants say a prayer. The procession is accompanied by singing and usually ends at a church or a public place, where an open-air worship service is conducted.

Keep banned foodstuffs out of US by Robert Szostek U.S. Army Europe Customs Public Affairs Personnel shipping household goods to the states this summer should be careful when packing the contents of their kitchen, agriculture officials advise. The Bureau of Customs and Border Protection issues fines of $100 to $1,000 to firsttime offenders who ignore the strict rules that apply to sending food products stateside. “Red meats, sausages, pates and salami can harbor animal viruses, even if canned, and are therefore barred

from import,” said Scott Sanner, U.S. Department of Agriculture adviser to the U.S. European Command. Even pasta or soup mixes that contain dried meat are not allowed, he added. Footand-mouth disease and bovine spongiform encephalopathy (also known as mad cow disease) are examples of animal diseases that need to be kept out of the U.S. this way. Fresh fruits and vegetables may also not be sent to the U.S., because they can contain the eggs or larvae of voracious pests. The Mediterranean fruit fly is a good example of a bug that can hide in citrus and

other fruits to beat defenses. However, members can ship processed fruit and vegetable products, such as canned fruit, olive oil, mustard and canned or processed sauces. There are no restrictions on fish or mushrooms either, Sanner added. Commercially produced dried herbs and spices, tea, roasted coffee, cured cheeses, cakes, candies, cookies and roasted nuts are also OK.

USAG-RP kicks off 2014 summer reading program Registration is now open for a shared summer reading program that will reach military families on bases and installations around the globe. U.S. Army Garrison Rheinland-Pfalz readers of all ages can dig into a menagerie of book choices around the theme “Paws to Read.” The program will run six weeks long with open enrollment running through July. Activities will range by location and will also include special programs for children in the garrison’s child development centers and the school-age centers. “Last summer the global program set a new reading record: 14.6 million minutes spent reading. USAGRP libraries registered 737 readers,

which is an increase over the previous year. Each year the program is making a bigger impact on families’ lives,” said Shawn Friend-Begin, USAG-RP library director. “We hope people will really sink their teeth into this year’s program and fetch more books than ever before.” Decades of research shows that students typically score lower on standardized tests at the end of summer vacation than they do on the same tests at the beginning of the summer. Summer reading programs can help to offset this loss, because studies also indicate students who read recreationally out-performed those who don’t. Students read more when they can

choose materials based on their own interests. Without summer reading intervention, the National Summer Learning Association reports it is common for teachers to spend at least a month reteaching material that students have forgotten over the summer. “We make sure reading is fun for children and families, but we also know it is a seriously important program for supporting brain development, student achievement and learning over a lifetime,” Friend-Begin said. “USAG-RP libraries will again offer summer reading programs for infants through adults, to include programming to complement the theme

for all ages.” Sponsored by the Department of Defense with program content developed by iREAD, “Paws to Read” will reach thousands of families.

Scouts conduct mass ‘promotion’ at local camp Story and photos by Sgt. Maj. Michael Pintagro 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs The drawdown made no discernible impact on promotion rates within one local organization: 42 Scouts from Pack 69 embraced new ranks, new roles and, in many cases, new uniforms during a mass “crossover” ceremony held June 1 at Camp Kachina, located just south of Vogelweh. The mass “promotion” ceremony marked the culmination of a dynamic and rewarding Scouting year including a broad range of civic, outdoor, handicraft, educational and artistic adventures. More than 60 parents, sisters and a handful of older brothers – many of them Boy Scouts — joined adult leaders and volunteers for the ceremony. Participants gathered around a ceremonial bonfire for a Scout-sized picnic prior to the promotion. Since the event served as the Scouting year’s final pack meeting, adult leaders also recognized accomplishments, distributed awards and delivered announcements. The “crossover” ceremony, based loosely on American Indian ritual and folklore, followed the food. Each Scout walked a short path flanked by torches to the official party — consisting of the cub master and respective den leaders. Rank and uniform protocol varies to an extent, but most of the Scouts received and donned new neckerchiefs, slides and hats during the ceremony. WEBLOS received hiking backpacks to commemorate their advancement into the “Arrow of Light” Den — reserved for second year WEBLOS. As the last s’mores roasted and light rain scattered the remaining Scouts and parents, pack leaders reflected on an eventful year and looked forward to fresh adventures this summer and beyond. “This is the culmination of a year’s worth of learning for the Scouts,” said Eric Cooley, Barbarossa District committee member and a key program organizer. “They learn different Scouting skills at different levels. As they progress, they learn more

about citizenship and manners as well as the specific activities and skills. The boys love getting the new scarf and reaching the next rank. That really motivates them for the summer and the next year.” Maj. Michael J. Swienton, a dedicated cub master (the senior Pack leader), who devotes duty days to missions at the 21st Theater Sustainment Command operations center and virtually every other waking moment to Scouting activities, said it was a superb year. “All the boys who attended and stayed with the program ‘graduated.’ Even those who departed early generally found a way to graduate,” he said. “That says a lot about the den leaders and the parents who make this program work.” One of those leaders, Xavier Flores of the Tiger Den, said the crossover event embodied a year of learning, adventures and shared endeavors.

“This acknowledges everything they’ve accomplished during the year — the skills, awards, badges — everything they’ve learned,” said Flores, who teaches fourth grade at Vogelweh Elementary School when he’s not herding first-graders during den activities. “This is the beginning of the next part of their Scouting journey. The Tigers are especially excited to move on. It’s new to them. They’ve seen the other boys wearing their various patches and badges, and they’re eager to be part of it.” Swienton described the concluding year as “high effort, high reward.” The intrepid Scouts and their fearless if exhausted leaders maintained a frenetic pace throughout the year, conducting virtually every pack and district event possible in addition to denlevel activities.

Airmen urged to travel safe by Senior Airman Jose L. Leon 86th Airlift Squadron Public Affairs Taking a few extra safety precautions can make the difference between enjoying travel without mishaps and becoming a victim. Europe provides a plethora of historical and cultural hot spots. For some, being in Europe is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “The first thing I usually tell people is to take the stuff learned during anti-terrorism training and take it one step further,” said Special Agent Lenin Ortiz, 13th Field Investigation Squadron. “A criminal, terrorist or anyone targeting Americans, has a split-second to scan crowds to identify who would make a good victim.” Not wearing clothes that can only be acquired in the U.S. or brands that are unusual in Europe can make you a harder target to identify. Also take into consideration the size of the group you are traveling in. “It is probably a bad idea to travel in big groups, like 10 or 15, but on the flip-side, it is a good idea to stay away from walking around on your own,” Ortiz said. “The purpose behind traveling in groups of two or three is the same reason we have wingmen in the sky, to watch each other’s backs.” The wingman concept can be used in towns or while driving. Long drives can

be stressful and having a person to switch into the driver’s seat can make the trip smoother. “Getting there is going to be the hardest part,” said Staff Sgt. Joseph Hernandez, 86th Airlift Wing ground safety traffic manager. “If your vehicle is not road worthy, you can always rent a car.” Traffic safety incidents are one of the most common safety incidents in the Air Force. Filling out an Air Force Form 978 is mandatory when safety incidents occur. If at any time you wonder whether or not you should fill out a safety mishap form, do it anyways. Once it is received, then the determination of whether or not it was a mishap can be made. Here are some more travel safety tips to remember: • Check tire pressure, brakes and seat belts • Know your limits, use rest stops if you need to • When on motorcycles use proper personal protective equipment and ride in groups • Don’t leave items in your vehicle in plain sight • Look through the foreign clearance guide for mandatory travel regulations • Keep up with travel.state.gov for up-todate safety information

86th Airlift Wing ‘Day in the Life’ project The 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Office is looking for volunteers to help with an upcoming “Day in the Life of the 86th Airlift Wing” project, taking place Wednesday. We’re interested in collecting photos and video of the routine activities of families on and off base, as well as Airmen residing in the dorms. The goal is to garner footage of morning routines, such as getting ready for school and work; afterwork routines, including shift workers, family events, dinner and homework, as well as any other event taking place on an average day; and Scout meetings, sports practices and dorm life. If interested in submitting, email Public Affairs at 86aw.pa.commandinformation@ us.af.mil with “Day in the Life” in the subject line no later June 25. Photos and video can also be uploaded to www.facebook.com/ Ramsteindayinthelife.

Apply now for the USDA Free/Reduced School Lunch Program The USDA Free/Reduced Price Lunch Program can save a family up to $466 per child attending Department of Defense Dependents Schools every year. The USDA School Lunch Program is

offered at all KMC schools and is designed to meet federal requirements for nutritiously balanced meals and offer free or reduced-price meals to eligible children. Families need to apply annually for

the program. Applications for school year 2014-2015 will be accepted starting Monday. Eligibility for receiving free or reduced price lunches is based on total family income and household size.

SCH HOLA ARSHIP OGRA AM PRO This year’s Daedalian scholarship in the amount of $3,000 was awarded to Giorgio Correa, a four-year AFJROTC Cadet at Ramstein High School. As part of the competition, Cadet Correa wrote an article on “Why I want to be a Military Pilot.” Cadet Correa plans to attend Embry Riddle Aeronautical University this fall. His father is CW4 Jorge Correa, a U.S. Army pilot currently flying the C-20 aircraft at Ramstein Air Base.

When determining income eligibility, COLA and housing are not included as income. For example: • An E-7 with 14 years of service and a total household size of four (sponsor, spouse and two children) would qualify for the reduced-price lunch program, providing there is no additional income in the household. • An E-8 with 20 years of service and a total household size of five (sponsor, spouse and three children) would qualify for the reduced price lunch program, again providing there is no additional income in the household.

SCOUTS, from Page 16 “We had a very active year,” Swienton said. “We averaged a major activity per month, and this year was even more spectacular because of (a camping trip built around the 70th anniversary celebration of) Normandy. I think the boys had a great time, and they learned a great deal.” With a June 1 date of rank, Scouts plunge immediately into activities commensurate with their new status. “Our goal this year is to keep things active over the summer,” Swienton said. “We’d like to have at least one pack-level activity per month to keep the momentum going. We realize everyone won’t attend every event, but we want to provide the Scouts, the families and our new leaders the options to stay active.” Newly promoted Scouts howled, barked and roared their approval. “I’m really excited to figure out how to do new things and get more accomplishments,” said Albert Vandeway, 8, a “Wolf” promoted to “Bear” status during the ceremony and son of a warrant officer serving with the 21st TSC’s 16th Sustainment Brigade. “I had a lot of fun as a Wolf, and I’m really pumped up about getting this award and becoming a Bear.” Vandeway identified the pack camping trip to Normandy as his favorite event of the Scouting season. “Getting the Normandy patch was the best part,” he said with a smile. “It was pretty fun camping and watching the fireworks show at the end.” The weather proved uncooperative at times, but Scouting ingenuity overcame nature’s challenges. “I had some hand warmers, so I put them in my pockets,” Vandeway said. Cameron Kay, 7, a Tiger promoted to Wolf during the ceremony and son of an Air Force NCO assigned to the 86th Maintenance Squadron, said he liked all the activities, and aside from cheese curls and cookies, he identified the model vehicle derbies as the highlight of the Scouting year. “My favorite event was the Pinewood Derby. I came in third place,” he said. Brady Banyi, 9, a member of the WEBLOS Den and son of an NCO who serves with the 21st TSC’s 92nd Military Police Company, 18th MP Brigade, named camping and roasting marshmallows, as well as the model vehicle derbies, as his top Scouting activities of the year. Banyi also enjoyed the several educational achievements as well. “I learned how Boy Scouts can help you when you’re older,” he said. “I also learned that when you’re doing camping you need a first aid kit and flint to make your camp fire.” Some expressed mixed feelings about the conclusion of the Scouting season. “I’m sad to see it end,” Kay said. “I love Scouts.”

Among the emigrants were also a couple of Grimm’s ancestors. “Only one of them is a direct-line ancestor,” said the historian who continues to cultivate the relationship with his relatives in the U.S. The audience was surprised when the guest speaker mentioned that two Baumholder residents had fought in the battle of Yorktown in October 1781 on the side of George Washington for America’s independence. “George Metzger and Jean Simon belonged to the Royal Regiment of Zweibrücken (Royal Deux-Pont),” Grimm said. “Metzger was killed in

Visit www.kaiserslauternamerican.com/movies.php for more information Edge of Tomorrow (PG-13) — “Edge of Tomorrow” unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world. Maj. William Cage is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed

within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop, forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over. But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski. Starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt.
