Ramstein: It’s your home, take pride in it by Airman 1st Class Hailey Haux 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

Lt. Gen. Donald M. Campbell Jr., U.S. Army Europe commander, discusses Sgt. Megan Loveland’s plans after the Army during a chat at U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern’s new transition center on Kleber Kaserne.

New transition center helps Soldiers achieve post-military goals

aking care of the base is important for the well-being of everyone who lives, works and visits here. “Ramstein is the same as our house. We want people to see it looking good and show that we have pride in Team Ramstein,” said Staff Sgt. Anitrea Bryan, 86th Airlift Wing knowledge operation manager and facility manager. One way for everyone on base to help is participating in the annual spring clean-up April 26. Spring clean-up is for all military and civilians living and working on Ramstein to come together and clean everywhere on base. This is an older base and has a lot of history. It’s

important for everyone to take care of not only its future, but its fascinating past. Rheinland-Pfalz and the surrounding area have been around for years and taking care of the base ensures it’s stability for future generations. “Airmen walking through Ramstein may not be aware of it, but ancient German settlers, Romans and other medieval societies walked the same pathways and hunted in the forests of Ramstein,” said Bill Harris, U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa history, museums and art programs director. “From a (philosophical) point of view the base is a living, breathing artifact.” Ramstein, built in 1952, was designed by French engineers, built by Germans and operSee PRIDE, Page 2

LIFESTYLES

After Lt. Gen. Donald Campbell cut the ribbon on U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern’s new transition center, the U.S. Army Europe commander spoke with Sgt. Megan Loveland about her leaving the Army. Loveland, an Indiana native who serves as a medic with 5th Battalion, 7th Air Defense Artillery, served four years, including a tour in a combat zone. At Kleber Kaserne, she recently underwent courses on employment, education, finances and veterans’ benefits. “Do you have a plan?” Campbell asked. “What are you going to do?” “I do, Sir,” said Loveland, who plans to leave the Army in late April. “Having a plan, that’s the most important thing.” Helping Soldiers plan for their lives after the military is the aim of Army Career and Alumni Program staff at the garrison’s new center. The center’s resources can help Soldiers transition out from federal service to become a productive member of the workforce, said Lt. Col. Lars Zetterstrom, commander of U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern. “We owe it to our Soldiers to help them transition back to civilian society at the best degree possible,” Zetterstrom said.

Continuous improvement: lifeblood of our Air Force by Brig. Gen. C.K. Hyde 86th Airlift Wing commander

Commentary

C

ontinuous improvement is life or death in war fighting. History is full of examples of those who prepared for the last war and were defeated by foes who learned from earlier defeats or developed better ways to fight. Our Air Force has a legacy of war-fighting innovation. In just more than 65 years, we have turned air power theory into reality with a force that can track, target and hold enemy capabilities at risk around the globe. From nuclear deterrence to strategic mobility and operational maneuver, our Air Force is the dominant air, space and cyber power on the planet. We revolutionized command and control, developed expeditionary concepts, and leveraged technology to deliver precision World War II bomber and airdrop crews could only imagine. Our legacy of continuous improvement is strong, but it is not enough. With a smaller force and an uncertain fiscal environment, we must continue to move forward. To ensure we allocate maximum resources to our core war-fighting competencies, we must use the creativity that made us the world’s

best operational Air Force to deliver innovation at our installations and in our major support functions. Years of abundant resources and a focus on “mission at any cost” have left us with effective processes that lack agility to adapt to new enemies or constrained resources. For the 86th Airlift Wing to achieve its full potential, we must focus on our fifth priority — eliminate non-value added activities in our major processes. This priority supports our mission and other four priorities. It is not about doing more with less; it is about eliminating waste and things that do not contribute to mission success. As part of our strategic plan, we identified seven major processes, which directly impact our combat airlift and installation missions, for improvement using Air Force Smart Operations for the 21st Century tools. We have completed three events this year and are on schedule to finish all of them by this fall. Our first project was directed by Headquarters Air Force, and we used it to tune up our “lean” machine. Capt. Luis Rosado-Medina, 86th Logistics Readiness Group, and Master Sgt. Shannon Huffman, 86th Material Maintenance Squadron, developed a process, the “Unit Supply

More than 200,000 U.S. and NATO personnel have been assigned to Ramstein since it opened. “Since 1953, chaplains and local clergy have celebrated more than 6,000 marriages between American service personnel and host nation,” Harris said. “That means that some of America’s younger Airmen assigned to Ramstein may be the fourth generation of returnees to this great area known as Rheinland-Pfalz.” In 1953, the only places to eat here were the NCO Club, Officers’ Club, Airmen’s Club and local eating establishments.

Efficiency System,” to redistribute excess supplies among units. The program identified $200,000 in surplus assets and saved $34,000 in supply costs in one month. Even better, it’s a repeatable process that will go live twice a year for a spring and fall “cleaning” and redistribution. The second project tackled outprocessing. A previous AFSO21 event reduced Ramstein in-processing time from two to three weeks to three days. Leveraging RIP success, Capt. Chris Dillard and Tara Mercado, 86th Force Support Squadron members, led a team, which revamped Ramstein out-processing in time for summer PCS season. The ROP is a two-phased approach, which brings base agencies to members at two key points in the PCS process, instead of members traveling to myriad agencies over multiple days, weeks and months. The first ROP line was March 6, and the feedback was excellent! We’ve already made changes to fine tune the process. The ROP line is held every Wednesday, and start time for Phase I (pre-orders) is 12:30 p.m.; Phase II (post-orders) is 8:30 a.m — continuous improvement in action! In our third project this year, Senior Master Sgt. Gabriel Nerf,

Fast-food restaurants did not materialize until 1986. “Airmen today would not recognize Ramstein of the 1950s,” said Harris. “In the mid-1950s the main form of transportation was a bicycle, bus or walking. Today most of the cars on Ramstein contain one person and bikes are few. However, what hasn’t changed is how the local communities have melded with Ramstein’s and their association has produced life-long friendships on both sides of the Atlantic.” With this base being home to military members and their families, it is important that its tenants take care of where they work and live. “We need to be sure to maintain our Air Force

86th Maintenance Squadron, led a maintenance group team that streamlined our aircraft wash and letter check (heavy maintenance) processes. They reduced the time for a “C Check” from 17 to 12 days, which, over a three-year period, will increase C-130J availability by 70 days, providing an additional 1,680 mission capable aircraft hours. Further savings will be realized when the team’s initiatives are incorporated into other inspections. WELL DONE to the 86th Airlift Wing Airmen who have embraced and continued the rich heritage of innovation in our Air Force. Your initial successes have generated significant improvement and excitement for our follow-on events: sponsorship (March), mission generation (April), individual equipment acquisition (May), Exceptional Family Member Program processing (June) and staffing and admin (summer/fall). The success of our wing and our Air Force depends on creative Airmen and continuous improvement. We face thinking and adaptive enemies, and we must be willing to attack the status quo and deliver improvement across all of our mission areas — our success in future conflicts depends on it. Keep up the great work!

standards and keep the base clean. A clean base projects a professional military image and lines up with our core values,” said 2nd Lt. Michael Peterson, 786th Civil Engineer Squadron assistant flight chief of operations support. The thought of keeping the base tidy is something that should be done consistently by everyone who lives, works or visits here. “The fact that this area changed hands between Germany and France on several occasions attests to the area’s prominence and strategic value,” said Harris. “Airmen should take time to practice mindfulness as they stroll from one area to another and remind themselves that they are but temporary visitors on an already ancient landscape.”

Sequestration is a big deal, so are you Commentary by Gen. Philip M. Breedlove U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa commander As you know, budget cuts went into effect March 1. Across the command, we took action to help manage the impact and to prepare for a worst-case scenario. We are in the process of cutting non-mission critical travel, base maintenance contracts, and facility projects, and we are anticipating steep cuts to our flying hour program. Other potential cuts are almost certain to affect you and our mission. While I can’t predict the course our nation’s leaders will take, I can tell you what we are doing in U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa. We will continue to support the

warfighter by providing responsive, decisive airpower and ready Airmen to U.S. European Command, U.S. Africa Command and other global operations. To the best of our ability, we will remain responsive to the combatant commanders’ operational requirements, but as cuts to training and flying hours take hold, we will certainly have a diminished capacity to respond to the unknown in the future. As you know, mission, Airmen and families are my priorities. Taking care of you and our Air Force family is critical to successful mission accomplishment. I am doing everything possible to protect programs that sustain our Airmen and our families in this overseas community. I cannot promise the same level of service you had on Feb.

28, but I can promise you commanders at every level are making informed choices among difficult options. Wing commanders most certainly have you in mind during this time of fiscal reduction. They have been given broad guidelines and authorities, which they are using to manage issues at our wings. Commanders are assessing how to best balance peoplemission priorities and are attacking the problems. I trust them, and wherever possible, I plan to keep decision making at the wing level, closest to you, and the mission and services that are being cut. I have confidence you will work with your local leadership and continue to find ways to save money. Do you see wasteful steps in your shop processes? Tell someone. Every dollar counts.

Finally, I would ask you all to keep in your thoughts the nearly 2,000 civilian Airmen facing a potential furlough. Words cannot adequately express how important our USAFEAFAFRICA civilian teammates are to our collective success. If this option is executed, it will most certainly have a devastating impact on our people and mission. In closing, let me just say sequestration is a big deal, and so are you. You work hard and are extremely good at what you do. Be proud of that — I am! In the end, I am confident our USAFE-AFAFRICA team will continue to shine, as we have throughout our 70-year history. Thank you for your service and for your sacrifice as we move forward together.

Aircraft maintenance revamps process with AFSO21 Story and photo by Airman 1st Class Jordan Castelan 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs An Air Force Smart Operations for the 21st Century event took place Feb. 25 to March 1 as a way to mold the aircraft maintenance process with the goal of improving 86th Airlift Wing aircraft availability. The AFSO21 program is a tool for the Air Force to improve its processes and increase global readiness, which Ramstein’s 86th Maintenance Squadron experienced firsthand.

Senior Airman Seth Featherston, 86th Maintenance Squadron engine specialist, performs a step in an overall check on a C-130J Super Hercules being reviewed by the Air Force Smart Operations for the 21st Century Feb. 27 on Ramstein.

“AFSO21 is a continuous process improvement,” said Master Sgt. Lester Goodwin, 86th Maintenance Group AFSO21 program manager. “The (AFSO21) program mainly focuses (on) looking at major processes and then eliminating no-value-added items and occurrences.” One of the main focus areas of this AFSO21 was reducing the amount of time it took to wash an aircraft. “Currently, this takes three days to accomplish,” Goodwin said. “However, after the effects of the AFSO21 program take place and we eliminate the unnecessary steps, this process should be only a single day.” The 86th MXS isn’t the only unit that stands to see an improvement. “On an Air Force scale, we are talking about aircraft availability,” said Randy Glick, 86th Force Support Squadron senior management analyst. “As long as we are increasing aircraft availability and predictability, then the Air Force stands to gain a strategic advantage.” With AFSO21 there are four elements to every problem-solving model: observe, orient, decide and act. These four steps are used to break

down and simplify a problem. The five desired effects of any AFSO21 are: Increase productivity of our people, increase critical equipment availability rates, improve response time and agility, sustain safe

and reliable operations, and improve energy efficiency. Goodwin and Glick said they hope to see all five desired effects instilled. By removing unneeded steps during the washing process,

all AFSO21’s desired effects should fall into place. For more information on how your unit can become part of the solution, email the 86th FSS at 86fss.fsemidea@ ramstein.af.mil.

1st Sergeants’ Corner

Taking care of each other Whether you’re an E-1, O-10 or any rank in between, or Army, Air Force or other service, one role we all have in common is that of taking care of our fellow service members. Looking out for one another is not something new. We use titles like “wingman” or “battle buddy” to describe those who have our backs when times get rough or potentially unsafe. Unfortunately, a portion of us have forgotten the importance of being a sensor to those who are in need of help. So, how do we know who’s not looking out for us? Easy. They are the ones getting drunk with others as the night grows more and more dangerous, unable to make logical decisions due to inebriation. They are the people who take no notice of us when we are experiencing times of despair, such as divorce, death in the family, or administrative and legal troubles. They have the “not-my-problem” mentality. So, who is looking out for you? It’s the person near you while you’re drinking who is sober and brave enough to tell you, “I think it’s time to call it a night. Let’s get you home.” It’s the person who recognizes a co-worker’s negative behavioral change then has the courage to intervene in that person’s life and help or get help without hesitation. It can even be the person who helps you through your job or school work when you are struggling. Being a sensor to the behavior of those around you (friends, co-workers, etc.) places you in a much better position to take care of them. The point of having each other’s backs is to get involved in people’s lives in a positive manner before they make a poor decision. So, pay attention and get involved! (by Master Sgt. Dathan Hayes, 2nd Air Postal Squadron first sergeant)

COMUSAFE presents medal of distinction to German politician by Capt. Reba Good U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa Public Affairs Gen. Philip M. Breedlove, U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa commander, presented the USAFEAFAFRICA Medal of Distinction to a German politician March 8 on Ramstein. Minister President Kurt Beck was honored for his commitment to partnership and his support of American Airmen while serving as minister president of Rheinland-Pfalz from October 1994 to January 2013. “Throughout his tenure, he has been a friend to many of us individually, and most importantly, a friend to our Air Force,” Breedlove said. “He has supported our military programs time and again, successfully striking a difficult and sometimes delicate balance between citizens and leaders.” The USAFE-AFAFRICA Medal of Distinction is awarded to a non-U.S. citizen in recognition for extraordinary service, achievements or support to the accomplishment of the USAFEAFAFRICA mission.

Breedlove attributed the success of several initiatives to Beck’s involvement, including the Kaiserslautern Military Community Center and the Build-to-Lease Housing Program. “What impresses me most is how he went above and beyond to support our Air Force,” Breedlove said. He added that Beck was also instrumental in providing for the safety of Americans in Germany after the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. “We had the opportunity to work very closely with our American friends to ensure their safety and security in Germany, and we took various measures to secure the housing areas over all military installations. This has deepened the bonds of friendship between our people,” Beck said. He also said that having an American military presence in Rheinland-Pfalz was mutually beneficial to both nations. As a result, the local population has formed a very close relationship with the U.S. forces over the years. “We owe the personal freedom that we enjoy to our American counter-

CEG hammers competition during first quarter awards Story and photo by Airman 1st Class Holly Cook 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Members of the 86th Civil Engineer Group were presented several awards at this year’s U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa first quarter awards ceremony. Winning five of eight awards, the 86th CEG proved they are leading the way in USAFE-AFAFRICA. The winners are: • Airman: Senior Airman Nicholas Wick, 786th Civil Engineer Squadron • NCO: Tech. Sgt. Patrick Araujo, 786th CES • Senior NCO: Master Sgt. Terence Ward, 786th CES • Category-I civilian: Ali Mayoglu, 786th CES • Airman dorm leader superintendent: Master Sgt. Misti Rodriguez, 86th CES “I know that Ramstein requires a lot of manning and hard work to function every day, but we have the best

and most reliable personnel in the Air Force,” Wick said, 786th CES electrical systems journeyman. “I am honored to be a part of a great team of workers.” Working diligently every day is what the 86th CEG does to keep the base maintained and its Airmen happy. “I’m honored to be recognized for what I do,” Wick said. “I know that the 86th CES is made up of hardworking Airmen and they should be congratulated for their efforts.” Rodriguez said they assist the 1,200 unaccompanied Airmen on Ramstein, the approximately 300 unaccompanied Airmen on Kapaun Air Station and process nearly 150 Airmen in and out of the dorms every month at the Ramstein Dorm Reception Center. The members of the DRC support KMC Airmen by providing quality living quarters and assistance. The hard work and numerous hours put forth to provide excellent living conditions, quality maintenance repair, minor construction and materi-

al support to the KMC, makes sweeping the USAFE-AFAFRICA first quarter awards well deserved. “I feel it provides a great snapshot of the team work, energetic work and dedication that the men and women of the 86th CEG cranks out every day, in support of Ramstein Air Base,” said Ward, 786th CES superintendent of facility systems. “It’s a great feeling to have the positive results from 86th CEG’s daily accomplishments be recognized at USAFE-AFAFRICA level.” Brig. Gen. C.K. Hyde, 86th Airlift Wing commander, also took the opportunity to personally congratulate the labors and dedication of the 86th CEG Airmen. “Airmen in our civil engineer group play an invaluable role in ensuring our installations provide strategic capabilities for the Air Force and Department of Defense,” Hyde said. “Their daily efforts make that possible. Congratulations for a job well done!”

CENTER, from Page 1

Campbell took part in the official ribbon cutting March 8. Loveland was among the more than 40 Soldiers who already took classes there. “This is the first one we’ve renovated in our footprint,” said Col. Bryan DeCoster, U.S. Army Garrison Baden-Württemberg commander, to Campbell. “In Baumholder, we’re doing the same.” In November 2011, President Barack Obama signed the Veterans Opportunity to Work (VOW) Act of 2011 into law. That set into motion new initiatives to assist Soldiers separating from the Army, including new mandatory training, said Ramona Kausch, the garrison’s education services officer, who oversaw the creation of the new center. Kleber Kaserne is where Soldiers process in and out of the community. The new classroom is collocated with education center in Bldg. 3245. Up to 42 people can attend. Each workstation has an Internet-connected laptop linked to the instructor’s interactive “smart board.” “It’s taken us from flip charts and power point presentations for something more state of the art,” Kausch said. It’s now a commander’s program and classes are mandatory, said Cherylanne Hunter, an ACAP coordinator. Participants undergo a self assessment and counseling and learn how military jobs translate to civilian skills. There’s a choice to make. Do they want to further their education, seek employment or start their own business? From that, they begin a track designed to meet their individual goals, Hunter said. “Soldiers receive a ton of information to assist them in making a sound decision,” Hunter said. “We want to

help Soldiers succeed.” The U.S. Department of Labor offers a three-day workshop, geared toward resume writing, interviewing and making the most of their military skills for either civilian or federal employment. A financial planner discusses budgets, taxes, college funding and investments. The Department of Veterans Affairs also offers information. Soldiers should plan on attending a year before their expected separation date, Hunter said. “It provides Soldiers with the knowledge that they need to be successful when they leave the military,” Hunter said. “It’s also for family members. They are more than welcome.” Campbell, who visited several gar-

rison installations during his visit to Kaiserslautern, later reflected on his talk with Loveland. “She had a plan she’d thought through, with the help of the transi-

tion center, her leadership and probably her family,” Campbell said. “The best advice I can give anybody is to have a plan, use the transition center and determine what’s best for your future.” During their interaction, Loveland explained how she’ll undertake a church mission before college. She plans on teaching. The general clasped the sergeant’s hand and presented her with a commander’s coin. “Good luck to you. All the best to you, as you go back to the states,” Campbell said. “Thanks for your service.” For more information on the Kaiserslautern’s transition program, call 0631-411-8816 or visit www. acap.army.mil.

18th MP Bde. tests law enforcement proficiency Story and photo by Capt. Amanda Kehrrington 18th Military Police Public Affairs, 21st Theater Sustainment Command GRAFENWÖHR, Germany — A military police Soldier is dispatched to an on-post residence for a domestic disturbance. The Soldier knocks on the door and identifies himself as “military police” to announce his presence. The sound of glass breaking and crying permeates the door. Just like instinct, the Soldier forces entry into the residence. The 709th Military Police Battalion’s Road Warrior Challenge March 7 was designed to train for such scenarios and focused on professional law enforcement tactics, techniques and procedures and encouraged MP Soldiers to stay proficient in those skills. “Being out there and helping people is really what I look forward to when I go to work in the morning,” said Pfc. Benjamin Varni, a gunner assigned to the 709th MP Bn. of the 21st Theater Sustainment Command’s 18th MP Brigade headquartered at Sembach. The Road Warrior Challenge consisted of 16 Soldiers competing in nine events, including baton strike, field sobriety test, apprehension, casualty evaluation and active shooter lane. “The commander’s intent was to put an emphasis back on professional law enforcement in the military police corps,” said 1st Lt. Garret Waugh, a plans officer with Headquarters, Headquarters Detachment, 709th MP Bn. “I hope this event gets Soldiers motivated and focused back on profes-

sional law enforcement because ultimately that’s why we are here.” This event will become a quarterly challenge within the 709th with the Soldiers already preparing for the next challenge this May. This is an opportunity to test MP Soldiers on their professional law enforcement capabilities keeping these Soldiers competent in their field. “Being a military policeman is about helping the community and keeping people safe,” Varni said. “They may not like me for doing it, but I’d rather be out there and take the heat for helping them than letting them get hurt or putting someone in a situation that is going to hurt those around them.” As often as first responders respond to an incident, it is imperative to identify strengths and weaknesses and have the opportunity to improve on weak areas and leverage strengths. This challenge gave Soldiers that opportunity. “This experience has taught me to be more fluid and free thinking, because when you respond to a call you never know the situation you are walking up on,” said Spc. Richard Spurgeon, commander’s driver, HHD, 709th MP Bn. “This was a good opportunity to test myself, see how much I have learned since working here and see what else I still have to learn,” said Spc. Michael Randall, team leader and patrolman with the 615th MP Co. “I think professional law enforcement is the one thing that separates us (from all other branches), especially in peacetime, keeping us relevant to the force,” Waugh said.

NATO generals meet at commanders’ conference For the first time after the implementation of new NATO command structure, AIRCOM commander Gen. Philip M. Breedlove gathered his subordinate air units for the AIRCOM Commanders’ Conference. The two-day event took place at the Combined Air Operations Center in Uedem, Germany, from Feb. 28 to March 1. The range of topics included reorganization of the AIRCOM mission, check on progress of transition and updates on the various subordinate units. Another focus was on the AIRCOM role within the NATO Response Force in 2014. “This conference is more than just an ordinary get-together of Airmen,” said Breedlove to those in attendance. “It is another step toward implementation of our new air command structure. While this transition is a dynamic process, our day-to-day mission continues. I am confident that together we can harmonize these new structures and ensure professional execution of our air tasks.” The meeting in Uedem offered an opportunity for the leaders to exchange views with their colleagues normally spread all over Europe. AIRCOM is NATO’s single air command. Since the beginning of this year, AIRCOM has been implementing the new NATO command structure by assuming responsibility for NATO’s entire European airspace from the North Cape to Sicily and from the Azores to the eastern border of Turkey.

Wing inspection team Red Cross keeps you informed ensures readiness, compliance by Senior Airman Whitney Stork 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

T

he giant voice screams “Exercise, exercise, exercise!” The process begins, recalls start and Airmen ready their gear in preparation for the impending events. The wing inspection teams are the members responsible for the inspections we constantly prepare for, supporting the commander’s No. 1 priority of readiness. They do this with two types of inspections: compliance and readiness. Compliance inspections are at the group and squadron levels, while readiness inspections focus on how the wing integrates all of the squadron’s and group’s capabilities into the mission. This enables and assures the wing’s strategic capabilities by providing combat airlift and operating the base. “We plan, coordinate and conduct inspections to strengthen the commander’s ability to focus on our most important missions and to give him answers to the most important questions,” said Capt. Drumarie Grandon, 86th Airlift Wing exercise and inspections coordinator. “We ensure the wing commander is sufficiently informed in order to assess risk and identify areas of improvement.” Conducting wing readiness inspections, the inspector general evaluates current operations, eliminates the need of unrealistic exercise scenarios and lessens the demand on wing assets during times of opportunity. The IG has been operating a new inspection system since the beginning of the year, which allows commanders to better and more efficiently identify, prioritize and mitigate problems specific to their mission. This new construct was put in place to better assess units and ensure they are meeting standards. “First and foremost, we had to create a whole new inspection system,” said Col. Scott Morris, 86th AW IG. “Air Force Instruction 90-201 was completely rewritten, and we had to create the entire program from scratch.” The IG had to change how they approached inspections. The old method dealt with inspections as a way to find and fix problems. With the new inspection system, units are encouraged to let the IG know where the problems lie so the IG can help push the commander’s problems or deficiencies up to the level where it can be addressed. “The only way for issues and problems to be solved is to make sure the right people know about them,” Grandon said.

The American Red Cross provides support to service members and their families stateside and overseas. Ramstein’s Red Cross responds to emergencies and disasters that happen to Department of Defense members or their families no matter where they are located. The organization relies on donations and volunteers to continue to provide the services they do. The American Red Cross has been working with the military since 1905 in emergency response and has solely relied on donations and volunteers to make what they do possible. The association provides emergency contact service to all DOD identification card holders stateside, overseas and in deployed locations. “Ninety-six percent of our organization is made up of volunteers,” said Emily Hayes, American Red

Cross assistant station manager. “The majority of what gets done is by them and we are more than grateful to have them.” Volunteers help with everything from donating money, items, blood or going to other organizations where their skills can be properly utilized. “All of our volunteers go through an orientation class after they fill out the application and pass the background check to make sure they are being placed properly,” said Gymmy Harris, American Red Cross outreach coordinator. “We have an international department as well that responds to international disasters and they have their own staff and volunteers to send wherever they are needed.” The organization started working with the Wounded Warriors Project in October 2011. The WWP volunteers currently supply a transitional care package to wounded members in Djibouti, Kuwait and Afghanistan. The kits

are put together in Florida by volunteers and sent overseas to military members who were wounded and in need of new clothes, toiletries, and other basic essential items. “I’ve been here since October working with the Wounded Warrior Project,” said Ron Jefferson, American Red Cross outreach coordinator. “It’s an honor to help them through transition. I always try to find new and fun things to make it interesting. There is always something different for them to do that matches the reason for their transition.” This agency offers countless services to the military and community to prevent and alleviate suffering in the face of emergencies by utilizing their strong network of volunteers, donors and partners. To contribute to this organization contact the American Red Cross at 478-2171 for further information on how to volunteer and donate items.

Start eating healthy during National Nutrition Month by Doris Donch Landstuhl Regional Medical Center registered dietician Looking for something to celebrate this month? It’s National Furniture Refinishing Month and National Noodle Month and National Frozen Food Month and Foot Health Month and Women’s History Month. This month is also National Nutrition Month, which concerns something we all do everyday — eat. Every year in March, the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics kicks off a campaign to teach (or gently remind) people how important it is to treat your body well by eating right and being active. Last year, I heard a speech given by the Army surgeon general, Lt. Gen. Patricia Horoho. She brought up an interesting point: How much time do you spend with your doctor? If you go to the doctor five times a year, you might spend a total of 100 minutes. That’s only a small part of your life. What’s going on the rest of the time — the other 525,500 minutes? That’s when you’re in charge of your body. The takeaway message is: Take control of your health. The theme of this year’s National Nutrition Month is “Eat right, your way, every day.” What does that look like? It looks like somebody who is taking control, every day, one meal at a time. It can be you. Strengthening yourself so that you can be healthy and feel good so you can face the day and perform in what-

ever job you do with energy and vitality. It represents eating right by making the right choices about what you put on your plate. It also represents exercising, which helps strengthen you both physically and mentally. Everybody has had some exposure to nutrition information. Many of us had an introduction to nutrition information and eating healthy in elementary school. Remember the food pyramid? You’d have to live in a vacuum not to have some idea that we’re supposed to eat more fiber, fruits and veggies and less fat. But what’s available to us is increasingly lower in what’s good for us and higher in the “bad” stuff. OK, what’s the bad stuff? I’ll bet you already know. You can also go online to any one of these websites listed below and find all kinds of information about nutrition and tips to help you eat healthier. * www.eatright.org * www.kidseatright.org * www.ChooseMyPlate.gov But there is nothing as powerful as awareness in the first step to change. A good way to increase your awareness this month is to write down everything you eat and drink. Try it for one week and see how much you will discover about your eating habits. Contact your local Landstuhl Regional Medical Center dietitians for additional help at 06371-867144 and check out daily nutrition tips this month on the LRMC Facebook page at www.facebook.com/#!/ LRMCofficialpage.

AER fundraising campaign launches at Smith Barracks Story and photo by Ignacio “Iggy” Rubalcava U.S. Army Garrison Baumholder Public Affairs Baumholder’s Army Emergency Relief fundraising campaign was launched March 4 during a breakfast gathering at the Heart of the Rock Dining Facility on Smith Barracks. Eldon Mullis, deputy director for administration at AER headquarters in Alexandria, Va., told service members and civilians at the breakfast that AER is not just for service members. AER also helps family members, retirees and other components of the Army, such as the National Guard. In addition to emergency relief, AER also provides assistance in other areas, such as preventive maintenance for service members’ vehicles and scholarship grants for dependent children and spouses of active-duty service members. “The best part is that it’s all interest free,” said Mullis, who was in Germany visiting installations and helping them kick off their fundraising campaigns. While here, he also assessed the impact and needs of the

AER program in Germany. The AER fundraising campaign provides everyone in the Army community an opportunity to help their fellow service members and community members. Baumholder’s AER fundraising campaign officer is Capt. Jason King. For more about contributing to AER, call King at 485-7383. Immediately after visiting Baumholder, Mullis traveled to Landstuhl where he helped the medical community with their fundraising campaign kickoff. “I learned something today,” said Lt. Col. Mike Sullivan, U.S. Army Garrison Baumholder commander, after Mullis spoke. “I did not know that I could send Soldiers or tell Soldiers that they can obtain AER assistance at any military installation, be it Army, Navy or Air Force.” All U.S. military services have a financial assistance program like AER, and service members are eligible to receive assistance from them, just as other military services can receive assistance from the Army program. Mary Johnston, Baumholder’s AER officer and financial readiness program manager, explained that last

Mullis is the deputy director for administration at AER headquarters in Alexandria, Va.

year, Baumholder had 224 assist cases for AER. Twelve percent of those cases were grants and the rest were interest-free loans. Overall, Baumholder’s AER program provided almost $350,000 worth of assistance to Soldiers, family members and eligible civilians last year. The average amount of individual assistance was about $1,500, Johnston said.

Although there is no set amount of assistance that AER can provide, $1,500 is actually the referral limit that commanders can automatically approve for eligible service members and civilians. AER representatives will soon be visiting the various agencies on post to provide contribution forms and answer questions.

Can’t sleep? Ways to help you feel rested when traveling by Laura Vasquez U.S. Army Public Health Command program evaluator Do you ever find yourself struggling to fall asleep at night, yet falling asleep during briefings after a day of traveling? You are probably experiencing jet lag. Jet lag is a common sleep disorder that occurs when crossing time zones and disrupts the body’s natural “biological clock” that tells you when to sleep and when to stay awake. Jet lag is a significant concern for Soldiers, civilians and retirees who travel often for temporary duty assignments deployments or permanent change of station moves. It can take several days to several weeks to adjust, leaving the traveler feeling

fatigued and prone to accidents related to insufficient sleep. Sufficient (six to eight hours a night), healthy sleep is one of the Army surgeon general’s top priorities for building and sustaining good Soldier and family member health through the “Performance Triad.” Sleep, along with a focus on healthy activity and nutrition, is one of the three legs of the triad. Lack of sleep impedes mission readiness. Incidents of friendly fire and navigational errors have occurred as a result of a lack of sleep. Insufficient sleep also contributes to motor vehicle and machinery-related accidents or deaths in the military and the general population. Sleepiness impairs the ability to think clearly, perform complex mental tasks, form memories

and solve problems. Going 24 hours without sleep is comparable to being legally drunk in all 50 states. Sleep is a restorative process necessary for muscle repair, memory consolidation, appetite control, hormonal growth and regulation, and is a part of a healthy immune system. Adequate quality and quantity of sleep allow you to wake up feeling refreshed and alert for the day. Sleep is a necessity to perform well and is as crucial to mission readiness as fuel, food and fire power. Fortunately, there are some actions you can take to minimize the effects of lack of sleep from jet lag and its

impact on performing your duties: Choose flights that allow early evening arrival. Stay up until 10 p.m. local time. Prepare for time zone changes. Wake up and go to bed earlier several days prior to an eastward trip, or wake up and go to bed later for a westward trip. Limit daytime naps. If you must nap during the day, limit the nap to less than two hours in the early afternoon. *** For more tips from the National Sleep Foundation, visit the KA online at www.kaiserslauternamerican.com.

Kaiserslautern Spanish classes visit Sevilla for immersion experience by Callie Hood Kaiserslautern High School At the end of February, 11 students from Kaiserslautern High School’s Spanish IV and AP Spanish classes traveled to Sevilla, Spain, for an immersion experience in the language they have been studying for several years. After departing Feb. 24, the students, along with their teacher and one parent chaperone, traveled to the south of Spain, where they explored the historic city for almost a week before returning home March 1. Once in Spain, the AP students took the lead as they showed the group the capital of Andalucía, the southernmost region of Spain. Each day had one or two of these upper-level students as “tour guides/leaders” who took the students to the various famous cultural and historic sites of the city. The Real Alcazar palace was one such site that includes Moorish architecture and extensive gardens where the students were able to see pavos reales, or peacocks. The students explored the artistic history of the city in el Museo de Artes y Costumbres Populares de Sevilla, Museo de Bellas Artes and

the Torre del Oro, a tower that supposedly once held the gold that was brought back from the New World but now houses a naval museum. One day, students left the city by train to the historic city of Córdoba, where they had a chance to see the historic mosqueturned-cathedral, and another night at a flamenco show. These students had spent weeks planning out every aspect of their day in the city, including a timetable, weather forecast and map of their route. Most of the days were spent walking the city, and the students clocked more than 11 miles on one particular outing (a total of 32 for the trip). Meanwhile, Spanish IV students researched various aspects of the history and culture, including the politics, food and royal family of the country. The journey to Sevilla was an educational adventure that was enjoyed by both students and chaperones. The memories made and experiences brought back will be fantastic reminders of a great time spent in Spain. The students would like to thank Paola Berdecio, the Spanish teacher who organized this trip, and Ellen Cron, a parent volunteer who chaperoned this group of outgoing teenagers.

Mustache March madness has military roots by Meghan Augsburger Ramstein High School intern otice anything different about your colleagues lately? Aware of a little fuzz on your neighbor’s upper lip? No worries! Mustache March is making its appearance again this year. For some, it’s a fantastic opportunity; for others, it’s a nightmare. Mustache March started as a fighter pilot superstition during the Vietnam War. Pilots claimed that a forbidden mustache protected aircraft from enemy bullets. Triple ace fighter pilot Robin Olds expanded the tradition by continuing

N

to grow out his mustache against military regulations. The trend soon caught on through-

individuality and teamwork. Since then, the idea of Mustache March has spread to the civilian

out the military, creating the Mustache March tradition. Though not intended as a direct act of defiance, his rebellion symbolized the importance of a balance between

world. Websites for different “mustache freedom” groups have sprung up and gained members. Some organizations use their newfound fan base to raise money for various charities.

Others utilize this chance to show off their masculinity or even protest workplace regulations and prejudices. In 2012, mustache enthusiasts went so far as to protest for the proposed “STACHE Act,” a $250 annual tax deduction for those with facial hair. Interested citizens participated in the H&R Block sponsored Million Mustache March through Washington, D.C. H&R Block donated all contributions to “Millions from One,” a charity that helps dig wells for clean water in developing nations. So, throughout March, be bold, pick a style (within regulations for those serving in the U.S. military) and join the movement!

Ramstein umpires to officiate Little League World Series by Airman 1st Class Nate Gettleman 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs The smell of fresh cut grass, the way your cleats pierce the dirt as you walk across the infield, a swing so perfect that you know it’s gone as soon as the ball meets the bat. Baseball season is back. For those still young enough to dream, it means waking up early on a Saturday morning, stepping onto a dew-soaked field and dreaming of the day the announcer calls their name. The stadium erupts as they step into the batter’s box for their major league debut. For those of us who have outgrown our playing days, all we have left is obsessively tracking the offseason moves of our favorite franchises, staying up late to watch games back in the states and over analyzing the statisticians attempts to quantify a game that is pure magic. But for the boldest, and strongest of character, it’s getting back into umpiring. Now that you have a mental image so vivid that you can practically taste sunflower seeds, let’s meet two Ramstein Airmen courageous enough to volunteer to be the most hated man on the field, and not even get paid for it! They’re so good at what they do, they have been selected to umpire the Little League World Series. John Valverde, 86th Communications Squadron plans and resources deputy flight director, is a fixture at KMC youth baseball and softball games. “For me it started out of the love of the game. I played baseball and I realized how much I missed it,” said the California native. “I knew I didn’t have the patience to coach, but I learned I had the mentality to umpire.” Valverde is known as the resident “rules guru” by players and coaches around the league. People will talk to him before and after games about hypothetical scenarios and how he would call that particular play. After a conversation on rules and after a few nasty curveballs, no one will dispute the assertion that Valverde is virtually un-stumpable. Valverde said it’s important to explain the calls he makes to the players and coaches. He said youth baseball is less about competition and more about learning the game.

Umpire John Valverde, 86th Communications Squadron plans and resources deputy flight director, positions himself to make a call. In August, Valverde will be traveling to Taylor, Mich., to umpire the Junior League World Series, with boys ranging from 13 to 14 years old.

“If you stay in a league long enough, you see little Johnnys grow up to be great players and great people,” Valverde said. In August, Valverde will be traveling to Taylor, Mich., to umpire the Junior League World Series, with boys ranging from 13 to 14 years old. Senior Master Sgt. Jeffrey Bise, 1st Combat Communications Squadron first sergeant, began umpiring out of pure necessity. While stationed at Joint Base Andrews, Md., Bise showed up to one of his son’s little league games with the intent of being a spectator. When there were no umpires to call the game, Bise donned a set of old catcher’s gear, got behind the plate and never looked back. “Umpiring is a family sport as well. My dad

(Lowell Bise) is coming over to Europe to umpire with John (Valverde) and me,” Bise said. The three umpires will be on the field together in Poland for the junior European tournament. “My son (Jarrod Bise) will also be keeping score. There will be three generations of the Bise family in Poland this summer,” Bise said. “You have kids who have their idols, but I can honestly say I never had a sports idol. My father’s been my idol and I look up to him. It’s an honor to be on the field with him.” Bise will be traveling to Eastly, S.C., in July to umpire the Big League World Series, with boys ranging from 16 to 17 years old. Getting selected to umpire a Little League World Series is no small feat. A maximum of 16 umpires can be selected for each age group’s world series. A minimum of one umpire is selected from each region of the world that sends a team to compete. Accepting payment for umpiring during the regular season automatically disqualifies an umpire from the post season, and a person can only be selected to work a particular age group’s world series once. After Valverde and Bise umpire their respective tournaments, they can still umpire in the Little League World Series, but never again for the same age group. However, being in Europe can improve an umpire’s chances of being selected due to the relatively small amount of umpires applying to go. “My father umpired about 33 years before getting a world series,” Bise said. Most recently, Bise’s father umpired the 2011 Softball Junior League World Series, with girls ranging from 13 to 14 years old in Kirkland, Wash. But being an umpire isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. “It’s the fan’s God-given right to yell at you,” Valverde said. “Most of the time, you just have to brush it off. You’re going to find out in a hurry if you’re cut out for this.” So here’s to the men who call it how they see it. The men who keep us honest. The men who are willing to sacrifice their popularity to preserve the integrity of the game they love. Love them or hate them, the game wouldn’t be possible without the men we affectionately refer to as “Blue.”

Increase cases of whooping cough prompt reminder to update vaccine by Capt. Wiley D. Paschal Jr. Landstuhl Regional Medical Center Public Health Nursing Because of increased cases of pertussis (generally known as whooping cough) in Europe and the U.S., Europe Regional Medical Command is initiating a plan to reduce the spread by ensuring vaccination records are up-to-date for Soldiers, family members and other beneficiaries. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there were twice as many cases (more than 41,000) reported in 2012 compared with 18,719 cases in

2011, and the highest levels in the past 50 years. Washington state declared a pertussis epidemic in April 2012. Their response to the epidemic has been focused on informing individuals about the signs and symptoms, vaccination recommendations, identification of those at high risk (i.e., infants and pregnant women), and targeted antibiotic chemoprophylaxis. Based on your age, two different vaccines are provided for whooping cough: DTaP — diptheria, tetanus and acellular pertussis is administered at 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 15 to 18

Free throw championship

The Knights of Columbus, Father Emil Kapaun Council 11987, will be holding a free throw championship event for children ages 10 to 14 from 9 a.m. to noon March 23 in the Ramstein Middle School gym, Bldg. 1002. Registration, sign-in and practice starts at 8 a.m. The presentation of certificates and prizes to the winners begins at noon. Pre-register by emailing your name, age and school

months, and 4 to 6 years old. Tdap — tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis is given at 11 to 12 years, and a final booster when 18 or older. All active-duty Soldiers are required to receive the pertussis vaccine. If required, active-duty Soldiers will receive their vaccine at their next periodic health assessment, pre-deployment training or next USAR/ARNG unit function where immunizations are available. Family members and beneficiaries should notify their primary care manger during their next doctor visit to obtain nec-

essary vaccine updates. Call or visit your local clinic for further details and to receive your vaccination. Pertussis is a highly contagious respiratory disease that can be prevented through vaccination (DTaP and Tdap). Pertussis is spread from person to person through coughing or sneezing. It usually starts with cold symptoms and a cough, followed by a “whooping” sound when a person catches their breath or gasps for air after coughing. About 80 percent of susceptible people become infected with pertussis after close contact with an infected

household member. Anyone who cares for or lives with children should get their pertussis vaccination. Individuals who get the bacteria, including their family members, may be prescribed antibiotics to prevent the spread of the pertussis bacteria. Children, child care workers and health care workers may be excluded from work, school or day care if they have a suspected or confirmed laboratory pertussis finding. Additional information can be obtained at the CDC website at www.cdc.gov/ mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/ mm6001a4.htm.
