Honoring history to secure the future

Seventy years separate the two photos of a Douglas C-47. In that time, the Air Force became a separate, independent service of the

Department of Defense, and the military has upgraded its airframes and capabilities. But one thing remains the same: the pride and ded-

ication that comes with putting on a uniform with the initials “U.S.” embroidered on it. Whether in the Air Force

or any other service, today we stand on the shoulders of giants — the ones who came before to make us the nation we are today.

Personal energy, overproduction by Capt. Fred Jackson 86th Maintenance Group As I entered technical training in 2005, the first words I heard were, stay fit-to-fight. Listening to our instructor gather opinions and discussing how the physical fitness examination changed from what we experienced through our different commissioning source was definitely a conversation point. The real interesting conversation came through from the “old-timers” discussing how the previ-

ous physical fitness tests were administered. Two recurring stories were told involving a mysterious bike test and how the run had a few less than healthy tricks to get a passing score. Thinking about physical fitness and how it relates to the Air Force and our lives, I wanted to discuss two concepts I always keep in mind: personal energy and overproduction. An old colleague of mine told me that once he found his personal energy, he found himself to be healthier and

a more balanced person. He would wake up just in time to get to work and not be late, and as the day rolled on, his energy levels would increase. He would workout during his lunch break or even directly after work, finish the duty day and go home, and even as the day turned into evening, he was still wide-eyed awake. Once I heard this, I started to think about my own energy levels, which I quickly found out are completely opposite. I would wake up two to three hours

before work, exercise at the southside fitness center and get into work early. Once I am on the job, I complete my daily tasks, but as the day rolls on, my energy levels decrease. Start to think about your energy levels. Do they increase or decrease throughout the day? When do you find yourself to be most productive? Once you figure it out support it. Build your day around it, and you will find yourself a more productive and balanced person. Once you figure out

where your personal energy is, you can build in your plan for physical fitness time into your day. As we come into the summer months activity will flourish, the amount of children playing at the parks will triple and the force support squadron will be offering summer sports programs. I challenge everyone to find their energy levels, squeeze in your physical training time based on a target fitness level and get involved in something physically active.

culture is changing. Because of SAPR standdown days and other events like this, survivors are feeling more comfortable coming forward to report. The SAPR office is open 24/7 and provides on-call response 365 days a year for our community. We have more than 80 trained and certified victim advocates who are prepared to be a part of the solution to this problem. We have over 55 people on a waiting list to become victim advocates right here at Ramstein, and that is without actively recruiting. Our fellow Airmen and co-workers want to raise awareness, and they want to be a part of the change in our culture by volunteering to serve as a SAPR victim advocate. The increased participation in our program and across the Air Force shows that there are many others around us that care and want to help others in their time of need. We want survivors of sexual assault to know that it is safe to come forward and report, it is safe to be vulnerable and we will believe you and encourage you to reach out for help. Seeking help for oneself takes great strength and shows great courage. The SAPR team will stand by to help and protect anyone that takes that first step.

Julian Rice (seated left) and William Prindible, World War II veterans and former 37th Troop Carrier Squadron C-47 Skytrain pilots, answer questions from members of the media before telling their story to members of Team Ramstein. Rice and Prindible were invited by the 37th Airlift Squadron to participate in events commemorating the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion of Normandy.

WWII legends speak about D-Day experience by Staff Sgt. Travis Edwards 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


wo veteran pilots who were part of the D-Day invasion over Normandy, France, spoke to a packed crowd of service members, dependents and retirees Monday on Ramstein. William Prindible and Julian Rice, both C-47 Skytrain pilots, flew airdrop missions during the invasion and are among the last few pilots alive to recite their tales of fortune. “We were the lucky ones,” Rice said. “One hundred fourteen other pilots didn’t survive; they are the real heroes. We were all just young kids doing our job ... the mission we were told to do.” The pair both joined the Army Air Forces in separate months in 1942 and were stationed in Sicily, Italy, with the 37th Troop Carrier Squadron. In the fall of 1943, they were sent to Cottesmore, England, for six months to prepare for the Normandy invasion. The duo focused on the unforgettable moments that led up to the invasion, including when they flew in tight formation during a training mission two weeks prior to D-Day, training that ended in tragedy. Rice said the night was shrouded with confusion, which led to mid-air collisions and the first of their casualties prior to the invasion even beginning. “Nothing is ever perfect — we lost our commanding officer, our chaplain, 12 aircraft and many men,” Rice said. “We wanted to forget that day, but you can’t forget.” Prindible said that although they didn’t know it when they started, all their training had to be put to the test on June 6, 1944, and it was the discipline they gained that

The name of the new street on Ramstein Air Base was unveiled during a street-naming ceremony Monday. The street was named Skytrain Lane after the namesake of the 37th Airlift Squadron’s heritage transport aircraft, the C-47, which was used during the D-Day invasion of Normandy, France.

helped keep them alive. This week’s visit was the first time they both have been to Europe since 1996. “We spent two years getting ready for that one day; we were trained well,” he said. “I am grateful for the experience and to have spent that time with (the service members involved with D-Day).” “This is our heritage ... 70 years in the making,” said Master Sgt. Jason Beebe, 37th Airlift Squadron loadmaster, who also flew in the dissimilar formation with the C-47. “This was one of those opportunities you will regret not coming out to see.” In honor of the 70th anniversary of D-Day and to commemorate Rice and Prindible’s visit to the base, 86th Airlift Wing Commander Brig. Gen. Patrick X. Mordente unveiled Skytrain Lane to signify the legacy aircraft of the modern-day 37th Airlift Squadron, the same airframe used by both veterans when they flew in Normandy.

WWII veterans tell 70-year-old story Story and photo by Staff Sgt. Kris Levasseur 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Editor’s note: The information in this story is based on the personal recollection of the lives of two World War II veterans and the D-Day events from 70 years ago. In the largest orchestrated air, ground and sea assaults of the century, more than 850 C-47 Skytrains piloted by Airmen with the Army Air Forces and the 37th Troop Carrier Squadron were to deliver approximately 13,000 paratroopers from the 82nd and 101st Airborne into battle. It was not just any battle, though. It was the battle that became the turning point in a war that encompassed many nations from around the world. The battle was Operation Overlord in Normandy, France, and the war was World War II. The facts of the battle are well known in history books, but the individual stories and intricate details are on the verge of being lost in time. Fortunately, two veterans of the infamous battle took their time to detail what it was like to be a part of the tipping point in the war. William Prindible and Julian Rice, former 37th TCS pilots, were able to tell their story Monday on Ramstein. Here is the account of their experiences: “When I was a 7-year-old kid in

Panama, I was watching a man being driven down the road in a parade and asked my mom who he was, and she said, ‘He’s Charles Lindbergh,’” Rice said. “The next day we went to the airfield. We saw the Spirit of St. Louis take off into the sunset, and I was hooked. I knew that is what I wanted to do.

“In 1941, I was sitting in the movie theater when the movie stopped,” Rice added. “A major came on stage and announced the bombing of Pearl Harbor and told us all to go home. My friends and I knew what was coming, so we took the aviation cadet exam and signed up right away.”

While Rice was preparing to train as a pilot, the pilot that eventually became the youngest 37th TCS member, William “Bill” Prindible was eagerly awaiting his 18th birthday, so he could sign up as well. See veterans, Page 7

by blows to the head (most likely with a rifle stock), repeatedly stabbed with bayonets and shot multiple times. On Sept. 11, 1994, about 50 years after the massacre, Hermann Langer, son of Mathias, erected a monument to commemorate the Soldiers he remembered as a child. Throughout his lifetime, he could not forget the desperation he saw in the eyes of the American Soldiers at his home, or the dignity he witnessed when they faced the SS. Nor could he forget the generosity of his father. He constructed a cross from the pieces of his own family’s gravestones in order to ensure permanent structure to coincide with the lasting memory of the brave Soldiers. Not only did Hermann create a monument that will forever pay tribute to these men, but he built it in the exact area where the men were murdered. This field also stands as the location for the yearly ceremony to remember and honor the Soldiers. This year’s ceremony was notable, because it marked the 20th anniversary honoring the Wereth 11, as well as the dedication of a beech tree in celebration of Hermann Langer. It was also the first ceremony to occur since Langer’s death. In this area of Belgium, there is an old tradition that is carried on in order to commemorate particular events, such as the birth of a child, a remarkable anniversary or to remember a loved one, and that is done through the planting of a tree. Each year the memorial ceremony welcomes a guest speaker to deliver a message on behalf of the Soldiers. Col. L. Mitchell Kilgo, who delivered this year’s address a few days before relinquishing command of 5th Signal Command, spoke about his connection and passion toward the Soldiers and the memorial dedicated in honor of the Wereth 11 and all other AfricanAmerican Soldiers.

The C-47 came to Ramstein for a week to participate in base activities with its legacy unit, the 37th Airlift Squadron, before returning to Normandy to recreate its role and drop paratroopers over the original drop zone in Sainte-Mere-Eglise, France.

Ramstein Airmen rekindle piece of D-Day history Story and photo by Staff Sgt. Sara Keller 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Seventy years ago, young men from the 37th Troop Carrier Squadron at Royal Air Force Cottesmore, England, prepared their aircraft and themselves for what would soon be known as one of the most significant and meaningful days in the history of the world — D-Day. This past Memorial Day, the 37th AS welcomed the Douglas C-47 Skytrain, known as Whiskey 7, allowing them to not only commemorate the 70th anniversary of D-Day but to also experience a piece of their squadron’s rich history. The C-47s were the first aircraft the 37th TCS flew when the squadron was formed in 1942. When the squadron was re-designated as the 37th AS and based in Germany, it flew C-130s.

Today, it flies the C-130J Super Hercules. “It was a few years ago we found out that the National Warplane Museum in Geneseo, New York, had the last airworthy C-47 from the original 37th TCS,” said Capt. Andrew Richter, 37th AS pilot. “About two years ago, we really started working with the museum to help in any way we could to bring the C-47 to Ramstein and the 70th anniversary.” After two years of intense fundraising and coordination, a team of volunteers from the museum made the 3,600-mile trip to Germany and flew with the C-130J from the 37th AS for the first time in history. “We have such a rich history here at the 37th, and it’s amazing to see our squadron’s heritage first person,” Richter said.

Standing on shoulders of giants by Airman 1st Class Jordan Castelan 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


eritage, pride and legacy are a few words that may come to mind as people walk through the halls of the 37th Airlift Squadron. Display cases dedicated to historical artifacts, such as model airplanes of the squadron’s past, and photos of their brother’s from World War II draped along the walls show the members of the 37th AS will not forget the legacy of giants that came before them.

One major part of the squadron’s legacy is a Douglas C-47 Skytrain, named Whiskey 7. This year, the 70th anniversary of D-Day will include this unique piece of history. It is the same C-47 that led the 37th Troop Carrier Squadron into D-Day. In its 72-year history, the 37th TCS has had a few unit identifying names. Its most recent re-designation occurred in April 1992 when it was named the 37th Airlift Squadron. Since June 1942, the squadron has provided airlift capabilities across multiple theaters and operations, including Overlord,

Market Garden, Tomahawk, Homecoming, Provide Comfort, Enduring Freedom, Iraqi Freedom and many more. Whiskey 7 was assigned as the lead aircraft for the 37th TCS, and arranging for it to make the 3,600-mile journey across the Atlantic and fly over the skies of Normandy was tasked to a few Airmen in the 37th AS. “What’s happening here is actually the accumulation of two years of work,” said Capt. Brian Shea, 37th AS mission commander. “Content planning began in November 2013 and became a full-time

priority the past month and a half.” During the previous two years, Whiskey 7 and its crew were able to raise the $250,000 necessary to acquire the means to participate in this year’s anniversary of D-Day. “Now we’re looking right outside and seeing this historical aircraft that flew during D-Day and led our squadron,” said Capt. Jon Dixon, 37th AS chief of tactics. “It’s absolutely humbling.” Whiskey 7 is a significant piece of history, and many military organizations have See GIANTS, next page

“When I signed up, there were so many applicants for the aviation program that the Army didn’t have enough room in training, so we all enlisted while we waited for room in training,” Prindible said. “After we got through training we were dispatched to Europe and moved through several locations while preparing for D-Day.” After spending time in Morocco and Italy, Prindible and Rice followed the 37th TCS to its last stop before the D-Day invasion. “About six months before D-Day, we got the orders to move our group to Cottesmore, England, to prepare for the D-Day invasion,” Rice said. “We spent the majority of the next six months training and preparing for D-Day.” Rice added that the training was rigorous and several skeptics thought the military wasn’t prepared enough to complete the mission. “At the time, there were a lot of reporters who said that we weren’t trained well and we were afraid,” Rice said. “Well, they were half-right. Of course we were afraid. Who wouldn’t be? But we were well trained. There was a plan, and we trained for it.” Rice also noted that the training itself was dangerous. Flying the way they did was still a fairly new process, and there were several challenges given the conditions. “Unlike today, we didn’t have a lot of navigation equipment to keep track of other aircraft in the area,” Rice said. “We had blue cup lights on the fuselage of the aircraft that we had to keep track of in order to stay in formation. “One night returning from a training mission, our group was split into two formations while returning to Cottesmore,” he continued. “There was WHISKEY 7, from Page 6

“The C-47 is the first aircraft our squadron flew, and it means so much to us to have the opportunity to fly with a piece of our history and participate in the French 70th anniversary of D-Day.” It has taken thousands of hours, about $250,000 and hundreds of people to get Whiskey 7 to Ramstein, and it’s not just the Airmen of the 37th AS who felt the need for the historically significant journey to happen. “The biggest reason we brought

Kaiserslautern American a bit of confusion between the formations, and we ended up flying through each other, and I was forced to land and spend the night sleeping in my C-47. It turned out that there were several casualties; we lost our commander, the chaplain and several others.” Rice and Prindible said there were several training accidents like this, but it was extremely important for them to be prepared for D-Day. If they weren’t prepared, they wouldn’t have been able to overcome the obstacles during the invasion. “On D-Day the weather in England was causing us some issues,” Prindible said. “The fog was bad, and we had zero visibility.” Because of the fog, Prindible and Rice said navigation was nearly impossible and was the biggest concern at the time. “We got lost in the fog,” Rice said. “Everything went black while we were flying in close proximity to hundreds of other planes. Collisions were a big threat and very possible. We weren’t worried about the flak and the gunfire until about five minutes later when we came through the fog. Then we had another concern; the sky was lighting up like the Fourth of July.” Prindible noted that, even though there was a lot to be concerned with going in to Normandy, that all changed once they got there. “Before we went out on D-Day, we were all apprehensive, but when we made it over Normandy, we were so focused and busy with our responsibilities that there wasn’t time to worry about anything else,” Prindible said. “All the Airmen were very dedicated to accomplishing the mission. There were a lot of things standing in the way of what we were trying to do, but if we weren’t as dedicated as we were, Whiskey 7 to Europe for the D-Day anniversary is because that airplane is a symbol of what those men did 70 years ago for the entire world,” said Christopher Polhemus, Whiskey 7 lead pilot. “Our crew chief really put it into perspective. He said, ‘Those men came as liberators, not as conquerors.’” The entire European continent was under the tyranny of Nazi control. “They were not free,” Polhemus said. “The U.K. was next, and what the U.S. did by sending W7 over here, along with thousands of other aircraft and

it wouldn’t have happened.” Their dedication allowed the 37th TCS to drop Soldiers from the 82nd Airborne behind Utah Beach in Normandy, France, between SainteMere-Eglise and Carentan on June 6, 1944. Within a day, the invasion was complete, but the mission didn’t end there. “The invasion was just a part of the mission,” Rice said. “The next day we carried supplies to the men that we dropped. Then, the next day bringing ammunition and medical supplies, as well as evacuating the wounded. “It seems like only yesterday we were there on D-Day,” he added. “It’s something you would never forget. At the time, we were happy to be able to do what we had to. We are so proud of the 37th Airlift Squadron for surviving and continuing the mission we had back then.” Rice said there have been a lot of changes since that day. “It’s the technical age, and the modern equipment has a lot that we didn’t hundreds of thousands of American Soldiers, Sailors and Marines, they came here and liberated the entire continent of Europe. It was huge!” Polhemus also explained how Airmen from the 37th AS were extremely helpful, and he’s thankful for all of the time and effort they put into bringing Whiskey 7 here. “We learn about our history as soon as we walk in the door. We see it on the walls around us. It’s ingrained in us,” Richter said. “To bring W7 here, fly next to it and parking it right in front of our squadron, it’s just surreal.”

have back then,” he said. Rice added that the one thing Airmen today have that they had back then was courage. Prindible agreed. “I’ve been asked what the difference is between (military members) back then and now, but I don’t feel qualified to talk about the differences,” Prindible said. “I can say there are a lot of similarities, but the biggest one is we are all volunteers.” Now, 70 years later, the two veterans are returning to where it all happened. The veterans said the trip back to Normandy came as a surprise to them. The trip provided a chance for the veterans to honor their brothers. “Bill and I don’t like to be referred to as heroes,” Rice said. “We were the lucky ones. One hundred fourteen other pilots didn’t survive; they are the real heroes. We are here to pay our final honor and respect to the true heroes of our group that didn’t make it back home. We are honored to be here for the 70th anniversary of D-Day and be able to tell their story.” GIANTS, from Page 6

highly regarded heritages that they work hard to recognize, and the 37th AS is no different, Dixon said. “Our end game is to honor and remember those who made so many sacrifices fighting to ensure the freedom and democracy for many,” said Capt. Andrew Richter, 37th AS deputy mission commander. When asked how important unit legacy is to today’s Airmen, the captains agreed that Americans can feel safe knowing the 37th AS is able to secure today’s future because of what 37th TCS Airmen accomplished 70 years ago. “We are able to do what we can today because of those men that fought on D-Day,” Shea said. “It’s no secret that we all stand on the shoulders of giants.”

Airmen focus on sexual assault prevention by Staff Sgt. Travis Edwards 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Airmen from the 86th Airlift Wing on Ramstein took an entire work day to focus on the importance of sexual assault prevention and response May 28. The goal for SAPR stand-down day was to have Airmen come together as a group to discuss the topic in depth, including reinforcing how to intervene in unprofessional situations and what reporting options are available to them. “Having a full day to talk to Airmen about how important sexual assault prevention is is invaluable,” said Carmen Schott, Ramstein sexual assault and response coordinator. “The reminder helps everyone understand the options available to them and also allows Airmen to talk to each other openly and candidly about a subject that can be sensitive.” The day opened up with a commander’s call from the 86th Airlift Wing Commander Brig. Gen. Patrick X. Mordente. “Sexual assault and sexual harassment are unacceptable, and they have no place in the Air Force,” Mordente said. “The Air Force is making progress in sexual assault response, but preventing the crime itself remains our goal.” In fiscal year 2013, there were a total of 1,047 reports of sexual assault. The general added that as a service, the Air Force cannot stop until there are zero sexual assaults and those who commit the crime are brought to justice. “It takes courage for a victim of sexual assault to come forward to make a restricted or an unrestricted report,” he said. “If sexual misconduct occurs, it’s important victims are treated with care and feel confident to report the incident without fear of ridicule, retaliation or reprisal. Regardless of the reporting option chosen by a sexual assault victim, we as Airmen must ensure they get the help they need.” Mordente’s words echo those of the chief of staff of the Air Force, Gen. Mark A. Welsh III. “We live in a culture of respect,” Welsh said. “We cherish our core values of integrity, service and excellence. But in order to ensure all Airmen

Brig. Gen. Patrick X. Mordente, 86th Airlift Wing commander, speaks at a Sexual Assault Prevention and Response stand-down day commander’s call May 28 on Ramstein. The stand-down day gave units an opportunity to review facts about sexual assault and enhance awareness about behaviors of people who commit the crime.

experience and benefit from those values, we must eliminate sexual assault in our ranks.” A goal of the sexual assault and prevention program is to reinforce that every Airman has the duty to promote a safe, respectful and productive work environment free from sexual innuendo, harassment and assault. Prevention includes informing and educating Airmen of their rights and responsibilities to themselves and to each other and having the ability to identify potential perpetrators. Airmen were told to be on the lookout for specific traits of offenders, like someone who shows hostility toward the opposite sex, has lower levels of empathy or holds traditional gender role stereotypes. The general said having these traits doesn’t mean someone will sexually assault another, but rather shows a correlation between the sexual assailants

interviewed and the traits they exhibited. In addition to the training, the SAPR coordinator said it was important that victims know that on possibly the worst day of their lives they have a place they can go to receive compassionate, capable support from the Air Force. “We want Airmen to completely understand that if they are sexually assaulted, it’s never their fault, and they can continue to trust that we will do everything we can do to help them in their time of need,” Schott said. “Whether they want a restricted report or unrestricted, we’re here to help.” The day’s events concluded by giving Airmen a chance to share successful stories of intervention within small groups.

Soldiers train to conduct installation access control Story and photo by Staff Sgt. Warren W. Wright Jr. 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs

undreds of Soldiers from throughout the U.S. Army Garrison Rheinland-Pfalz footprint participated in a three-day course designed to train Soldiers on the proper procedures for conducting installation access control. Guard force training courses have been conducted at various dates over the last eight weeks. They teach Soldiers a number of force protection measures from escalation of force to proper vehicle search procedures. Currently, security guards working

for Ponds Security are responsible for installation control in the KMC; however, due to a contracting issue, until recently it was unknown if Ponds Security would be able to continue in its role as installation access controllers. “We have been conducting guard force training in the event the Ponds guards’ contract defaults, which did not happen,” said Staff Sgt. Germell Johnson, physical security inspector for USAG-RP. “They did end up getting their contract extended, but we still had to train the Soldiers just in case they had to take over responsibility at the gates.” Though the Ponds Security contract has been extended for a few more months, See training, next page

the future of a new contract is unknown, meaning Soldiers need to be prepared to take over responsibility at the gates. After conducting numerous classes over an eight-week period, instructors were able to use previous classes to continually improve on the course in order to provide Soldiers with the best training experience in a short time. “The last week has worked out as the best week,” Johnson said. “Going from week one to week eight and having (after action reviews) after each course has helped us to solidify the training.” Soldiers learned how to properly conduct operations at the installation access control points to ensure the security and safety of the personnel working and the families living on the many bases throughout the area. “The training is important, because we need to know the proper way to do things in order to protect the base, our loved ones and our battle buddies that live on base with us,” said Sgt. Joshua Overton, human resources NCO with the 21st Theater Sustainment Command. Pfc. Michael Pierre-Louis, intelligence analyst with the 21st TSC, agrees. “It’s important because it reinforces what everyone should already be able to do,” he said. “As a Soldier, you should be able to guard a post.” On the final day of training, Soldiers were given hands-on instruction on the type of work they would be doing at the gate. From using the installation control access system personal digital assistants, to scanning identification cards, to conducting vehicle searches and individual pat downs, the Soldiers learned a number of techniques to ensure the security at the gates remains high. Overall, Soldiers learned how important installation access control is. Those who work at the main gates are the first line of defense for the many thousands of service members, civilians and family members working and residing on the bases. “Everyone here took the training seriously, so that we all will know how to do the job correctly if called upon,” Overton said. “I know I can rely on my battle buddies to have my back.”

Know before you go this summer by Robert Szostek U.S. Army Europe Customs Public Affairs People moving to the United States this summer should start preparing now by letting go of items banned from import, customs officials advise. It is also a good idea to apply early for import permits on restricted items. “Prohibited items include meat and meat products, such as sausage, pate and salami, as well as plants and

destructive devices,” said Mike Dean, U.S. European Command’s Customs and Border Clearance Agency director. “If you plan on shipping firearms, ensure you have proof you owned them in the U.S. or have an import permit.” Other important points to remember are: • Owners of vehicles not made to U.S. standards have to ship them through commercial importers registered with the Department of

Transportation and Environmental Protection Agency. However, vehicles more than 25 years old are exempt from this rule. • Most mopeds and motorcycles must also meet U.S. safety and pollution standards, and all vehicles must be free of dirt, insects and vegetation. • Wine collections can only be shipped with advance approval from the transportation office. • Endangered species items, such as ivory and some furs, may only be

shipped if owners can prove they were previously owned in the U.S. or are antiques over 100 years old. • State attorneys general must approve imports of gambling devices. These devices must be registered with the Justice Department in Washington, D.C.

o keep Ramstein’s fleet of C-130J Super Hercules mission ready, crew chiefs are responsible to maintain the birds wherever they might land. Not every 86th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron crew chief travels with Ramstein’s C-130s, but because Tech. Sgt. Francis “Buzz” Gilson is a flying crew chief, he goes with the bird. “Buzz is a major reassuring factor whenever we fly with him,” said Capt. Brett Polage, 37th Airlift Squadron pilot. “He’s an integral part of the team and ensures this well-oiled machine stays a welloiled machine.” Keeping a smoothly operating engine isn’t the only thing Gilson is capable of accomplishing. Working closely with the loadmasters on board, Gilson helps keep the mission on target while in the air. “Not only is he willing to always give me silverware to eat with, he also keeps me running mentally as well by boosting my morale,” said Senior Airman Brandon Millsaps, 37th AS loadmaster. “He knows how to dance, he knows about the (chicken) nuggs and (peanut butter and jelly) goob, and, most importantly, he keeps the C-130J I’m riding in airborne.” Ultimately, that’s why Gilson said he keeps coming back: the camaraderie among aircrew on the ground and in the air. “The thrill of learning something new every day and taking care of my people gets me out of bed every morning,” Gilson said. “It’s the way I was

raised, trying to do things to the best of my abilities. Some might call it excellence in all I do.” Ensuring his job is done as close to perfection is essential to making sure his crew trusts him, just as much as a family would. “Making sure all my troops and my aircrew are taken care of and my aircraft is in tip top shape is my most important responsibility,” Gilson said.

“I’m always thinking about fixing something, and if I wouldn’t want my family and kids flying in it, why would I want my aircrew to?” With the assistance of flying crew chiefs like Gilson, Ramstein is capable of responding with airlift and expeditionary combat support while providing full spectrum airfield operations throughout Europe and Africa.

Students navigate Germany with SERE Airmen Story and photo by Senior Airman Hailey Haux 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Having the ability to navigate through any type of terrain and be able to get from point A to point B with a compass and map can be a useful skill to have, not only in an emergency but for recreational purposes as well. Advancement Via Individual Determination students from Ramstein Middle School were given the tools and knowledge to learn land navigation by 86th Operations Support Squadron’s survive, evade, resist and escape specialists. AVID is an elective class, geared toward assisting students in learning how to take notes, study and prepare them for college. “Navigation is a phenomenal skill to have anywhere you go,” said Staff Sgt. Joshua Krape, 86th OSS SERE specialist. “It doesn’t have to be for strictly getting lost in a forest. Land navigation can be used in a big city as well.” Since January, a SERE specialist visited the AVID class one day a month to teach them the different aspects of land navigation: reading a

map, understanding the military grid reference system, reading a compass and more. After five months of classroom sessions, AVID students were able to put their skills to the test by participating in the first ever navigational challenge, where they had to find their way from one point to another. “The students learned team collaboration and how to use the inquiry process to develop the right steps for finding their checkpoints,” said AVID teacher Jonathan Petrick. “They worked together with peers they don’t normally see and were able to build a sense of community.” While trekking through the forest during the navigational challenge, AVID students were given a task such as solving a math problem at every destination, which needed to be completed in order to receive the coordinates for the next checkpoint. Every student was given the opportunity to lead their group to predetermined coordinates, allowing them to sharpen their skills and build confidence. “We had to work together to assist the lead person in getting us to the next point,” said Maddie Morelock,

AVID student and daughter of Air Force Col. Michael Morelock. “We had to trust that the people you were with would get us back safely.” Thanks to the SERE specialists and their active volunteers, the navigational challenge will be done again next year, giving more students the chance to learn land navigation. After

26 hours of planning and preparation, obstacles, and overcoming difficulties, Krape and Petrick shared the same sentiments. Whether it’s finding their way through the forest or navigating through the city, these students have the knowledge necessary to find their way back home.

Germans will observe “Pfingsten,” or Pentecost, Sunday and Monday. The religious fest takes its name from the Greek word “pentekoste,” which means 50th. Christians celebrate Pentecost, also called Whitsun, the 50th day after Easter, because they believe that’s when God sent down his Holy Spirit. After receiving the Holy Spirit, the Apostles started spreading the new Gospel to the world. That’s why the fest is also to celebrate the foundation of the church. In Old Testament times, the fest had the character of a harvest fest and in late Judaism, Pentecost was the day to commemorate the foundation of the Israelites in the Sinai, 50 days after the exodus from Egyptian oppression. Pentecost Monday is considered an official holiday in Germany. Stores, banks and official institutions will be closed. Some areas in Germany observe specific Pentecostal customs. In Bavaria, people dress in the national costumes of their region, walk in processions to church and pray for a good harvest. In Franconia, horsemen perform the annual Pentecostal ride. Led by priests, they carry church banners and crosses to church. In the KMC, the towns of Schmalenberg and Schopp stick to some Pentecostal traditions. In Schmalenberg, boys and men cut branches from pines, birches and brooms and create three skirts, which the so-called “Quack” has to wear from his neck down during the parade through town. He also wears a hat made of thin rods. The Quack figure symbolizes spring. Sunday afternoon, children go from house to house and collect flowers, which they tie to the hat as well. The men spend the night in a barn, watch the green costume and from time to time they go through town singing the traditional “Quack” song. Monday at 9 a.m., the parade with the “Quack” in his costume and children carrying colored Pentecost rods, go through Schmalenberg led by a colorful decorated horse. A village fest with eating of woodstove bread is scheduled to start after the ride. Visitors can taste bread baked in the historical village baking oven.

In Schopp, the Pentecostal ride through the village usually starts at 6 a.m. Pentecost Monday. The biggest traditional Pentecost event in the vicinity is the historical auction of a billy goat in Deidesheim every Tuesday after Pentecost. For the 606th time this event takes place this year. According to a document from 1404 by King Ruprecht, residents of Lambrecht, which is a neighboring town of Deidesheim, had the right to use the Deidesheim forests as pastureland. Contracts between the former monastery of Lambrecht and the town of Deidesheim mention that people in Lambrecht had to pay with a good-looking billy goat for the use of the forests. The youngest citizen of Lambrecht had to take the billy goat to Deidesheim and tie it to the town hall before sunrise the Tuesday after Pentecost. He then received a bottle of wine and a cheese sandwich. In the late afternoon, the billy goat was put up for auction to fill the town’s cash-box. Throughout the years there was a lot of arguing about the shape and the condition of the billy goat. In 1808, Napoleon even got involved and signed an edict saying the pasture rights would be granted for a “well horned and capable billy goat.” Between the years 1851 and 1857, the billy goats were not accepted. The case had to be taken to the Zweibrücken court, which decided that in 1858 eight billy goats had to be delivered. Today, it’s up to the most recently married couple to deliver the billy goat. Together with the Mayor of Lambrecht and other officials they walk to the Deidesheim town hall. According to new regulations they don’t have to arrive before 10 a.m. Tuesday. Here, the Deidesheim city council, school children and groups in national costumes greet the Lambrecht group. A fest with music, folk group dancing, drinking and eating starts in the afternoon. The traditional auction is from 5:45 to 6 p.m. The prices paid for the billy goat reflect the people’s economical situation. In good years, people paid up to €5,000 for the billy goat. Last year, a private person bought the goat for €2,600. Deidesheim is located on the German Wine Street between Bad Dürkheim and Neustadt.

“Fun and Action in the City” is the motto of the children’s fest taking place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday in the center of Kaiserslautern. The city and the advertising association “Kaiser in Lautern” will sponsor the traditional fest offering a diversified program for the whole family. Stores, local clubs and institutions will present manifold activities and special offers. A highlight this time will be the official start of the project, “Kaiserslautern is wearing wings.” Local artists created about 300 giant butterflies. They now will get installed around the city to provide special impressions. The initiative will run through September and turn the city into a colorful open-air museum with butterflies hanging above the streets or in trees. At 11 a.m., the Rottaler State Circus will bring giant butterflies on stilts to the giant ball fountain on Riesenstrasse. Children can paint or handcraft little butterflies in different locations. They also can learn from a balloon artist how to make figures from balloons and test their abilities in can throwing, running with eggs and rope skipping. A local ballet studio will invite the little ones to dance with them at 1 p.m. at Altenhof. The free kiddy train will give children free rides from noon to 4 p.m. starting on Schillerplatz.

Visit www.kaiserslauternamerican.com/movies.php for more information Maleficent (PG) — “Maleficent” explores the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the classic “Sleeping Beauty” and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turned her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant, Aurora. As the

child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever. Starring Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning.
