hief Master Sgt. of the Air Force James Roy visited Team Ramstein Wednesday, touring various units on Ramstein. Roy spoke with Airmen, keying in on resiliency, hazing, restructuring, training and the effectiveness of professional Airmen. Resiliency is not only about taking care of yourself, he said, it’s about taking care of those around you. “It’s not just the ability to work through a really difficult situation, but it’s also how you grow while dealing with that situation,” Roy said. “When you grow from that situation, it gives that person an opportunity to help wingmen who may be going through a similar situation.

Sgt. Maj. of the Army Raymond F. Chandler speaks to Soldiers from Battery D, 5th Battalion, 7th Air Defense Artillery, during his March 8 visit to Rhine Ordnance Barracks.

As Spc. Andrew Boyce scrambled to set up a communication tower, the Army’s senior enlisted leader, Sgt. Maj. of the Army Raymond F. Chandler III, was watching. Afterward, Chandler spoke candidly to Soldiers in Boyce’s unit, Battery D, 5th Battalion, 5th Air Defense Artillery, about proposed changes to Army re-enlistment and physical fitness standards. Chandler also stressed Soldiers’ need to focus on character, commitment and competence

and noncommissioned officers’ responsibilities to enforce Army standards. “He explained a lot of stuff that I’ve been reading about, but in more depth,” Boyce said. “It puts more perspective on what I have to do as a Soldier to reach the NCO ranks.” U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern was the final stop for Chandler and his wife, Jeanne, who arrived in Germany March 5 and visited commands in Heidelberg, Grafenwöhr, Vilseck, Hohenfels and Wiesbaden.

It’s your move, Ramstein by Brian Muller 86th Logistics Readiness Squadron

It’s your move Ramstein

For many in the KMC, summer means school vacation, traveling through Europe and the U.S., and time to enjoy long daylight hours and quiet evenings with our German hosts. For the traffic management professionals in the 86th Logistics Readiness Squadron, these months coincide with peak season — the busiest time of year for permanent change of station moves for American families in the KMC. Last year, our move counselors processed 20,000 moves for the KMC. As the Ramstein Traffic Management officer, my most important tip for family PCS moves is to plan early. To start the household goods PCS process, go to www.move. mil. This is the link to the Defense Personal Property System. You can use either a user name and password combination or a Common Access Card to login and start the process. DPS is a web based computer

involved in military moves: premove counseling, scheduling, tracking, billing and claims for household goods shipments. DPS

is online 24/7 and allows service members to make arrangements anywhere, any time with online access to the information about their PCS household goods move. While DPS has an incredible amount of information and all the tools you’ll need to successfully process your household goods movement, Tech. Sgt. Ixtel Delucy and her staff of LRS traffic management professionals at the Ramstein PPPO host mass briefings for PCSing families to make this experience even better for their customers. Held at 7:45 a.m. every Monday and Tuesday on Ramstein, Bldg. 2106, Room 401, these briefings explain customs, agriculture and special considerations like highvalue items and timelines. The day you receive your orders is the day you need to get back into DPS and complete your move request. When you enter the information from your orders, more counseling information specific to your move will become available. After See MOVE, next page

very day throughout their careers, Airmen are faced with making decisions related to multiple personal and professional issues. Sometimes these choices are simple — about coming to work on time, wearing the uniform appropriately, following proper work procedures, using alcohol responsibly, being honest in reports, reporting leave appropriately or treating fellow team and family members with respect.

Other times, these choices are more serious, like driving intoxicated, using illegal drugs, abusing a spouse or child, or sexual assault. In all cases, whether good or bad, these are our decisions and they are choices that we make as Airmen. “It’s not hard to make decisions when you know what your values are.” — Roy Disney, nephew of Walt Disney.

Burundi air force members visit Ramstein Story and photo by Staff Sgt. Travis Edwards 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Four members of the Burundi air force visited Ramstein March 5 through 9 to get the U.S. Air Force’s point of view on staying safe. The four lieutenant colonels were invited to Ramstein by the U.S. Africa Command and the U.S. Embassy to Burundi to familiarize them with the airfield, ground and flight safety programs the U.S. Air Force has. Capt. Dennis Napier, 86th Airlift Wing flight safety chief, took the quartet on a tour of several different safety programs the 86th AW employs on a daily basis. “The visit was focused around the ways we stay safe at the wing and Air Force wide,” Napier said. “The end result hovers around increasing their knowledge of our safety programs for them to see, use and adopt as needed.” Napier said that just because the safety program works for the U.S. a certain MOVE, from Page 2

Once you submit the application, contact PPPO to make an individual appointment for final counseling where you’ll sign for the dates of your household goods move. Please note, for the most part the dates you request for packing and pickup can be met, but during peak season not all requested dates may be accommodated. Members should work closely with PPPO to ensure they have the most current information on the status of their move. Customer service continues throughout your moving process. During your scheduled packing days, a U.S. customs inspector and/or an agricultural inspector may visit your home.

You’ll get their contact information during your PPPO counseling appointment and they are available while the movers pack, load and

Etienne Nduwayo, a member of the Burundi air force. “Here, it is forbidden to drive where you want without a (flightline driver’s) license and you have to check the wheels for (foreign object damage) before entering the airfield.” He added that the airfields in Burundi do not have that level of security and it is a program they would like to implement in the near future. “We just want them to go back home with some ideas,” said Lt. Col. Thomas Ulmer, 86th AW chief of safety. “If we give our partners just one good idea to go home with that they use, we could call this visit a success; prevention of an accident is a powerful tool that can save both lives and money. Having flown and worked in Africa, I know that initiatives like this get the ball rolling and allow for improved flight safety for everyone.”

SMA visits KMC, addresses key Soldier issues Story and photo by Staff Sgt. Michael J. Taylor 21st TSC Public Affairs Sgt. Maj. of the Army Raymond F. Chandler addressed members of the KMC during a town hall meeting March 8 at the Galaxy Theater on Vogelweh. Chandler held the town hall meeting to address key issues that affect Soldiers and the future of the Army, as well as answer questions from those in attendance. “I’ve only got about five things that I really want to talk about today that are general issues of concern with senior Army leaders,” Chandler said. Those topics were changes in the Army Combat Uniform, the Army drawdown, the Army profession, structured self development and family programs. He focused heavily on the Army drawdown. “What I need you to be aware of is that the drawdown is a deliberate, planned process that will draw the Army down about 10,000 to 15,000 Soldiers per year over the next six years,” he said. “Some of you were in the Army back in the ‘90s when we had to draw the Army down from 780,000 to 480,000 Soldiers. We are not going to repeat the same mistakes that we had last time by asking people who are really some of our best and brightest to leave the service. “We want to stay focused on those non-performers in our formations that should not be offered the privilege of continued service in our Army,” Chandler continued. Chandler also spoke in-depth about sexual harassment and assault response and prevention. “Sexual harassment and assault are counter to our professionalism. They don’t equal one another. If there is something in our Army that we should have a zero mentality on, it should be assaults and harassment against our own,” Chandler said.

Sgt. Maj. of the Army Raymond F. Chandler addresses the KMC at the Galaxy Theater March 8. Chandler provided his perspective on today’s Army prior to answering questions from audience members.

Spc. Angel Hunter, a paralegal specialist with the U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern, thought the SMA visiting Kaiserslauern was a good idea since there are a lot of changes occurring in the military. “He made some clarifications about certain issues and, if we had questions, we could just ask in person instead of reading it in a newspaper,” Hunter said. “We had the opportunity to personally hear it from the horse’s mouth. “Basically, the Army is an organization and we are supposed to be professionals, and the SMA is trying to make sure that the top-notch Soldiers are here to serve as professionals to make sure we are keeping the best of the best, and honestly it should be like that,” Hunter continued. After Chandler provided his perspective on today’s Army, he addressed questions from audi-

ence members on subjects such as family programs, the future of the military, medical profiles, future training opportunities and more during a question and answer session. At the conclusion of the town hall, Chandler acknowledged approximately 40 Soldiers for their accomplishments in their units by presenting them with his coin. During the SMA’s trip to the KMC, he also visited with some of the wounded warriors at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center and met with senior enlisted Army leaders in the area. “I feel like the SMA coming today is a great experience. I agree with his views and feel that the Army is headed in the right direction,” said Staff Sgt. Randi Carroll, a chaplain assistant with the 21st TSC chaplain’s office.

SOLDIERS, from Page 1

At Landstuhl, Chandler met with troops wounded in Afghanistan, medical Soldiers assigned to Landstuhl Regional Medical Center and patient liaisons — NCOs representing deployed units who support wounded warriors at LRMC. Later, at Rhine Ordnance Barracks, Chandler watched Battery D’s air defenders set up their Patriot missile batteries, a command post and a radar tower. Afterward, Chandler held a town hall meeting at Vogelweh’s Galaxy Theater. Troops asked Chandler about changes to the physical fitness test, the drawdown of U.S. troops in Europe and new re-enlistment standards. Committed, competent Soldiers should have no problem re-enlisting, Chandler said. “What we have to focus on is character and commitment. I need you to understand what that means to you,” Chandler said. “Are you doing the things you’re supposed to do when no one’s looking? That’s character.” Chandler’s discussion resonated with Pfc. Jeremy O’Shea, 20, of Fairfax, Calif., who’s been in the Army roughly two years. “It brought to light changes in the Army and gave it face,” O’Shea said. “It put into perspective how it’s going to affect me day to day.”

Sgt. Andrew Boyer, of Battery D, 5th Battalion, 7th Air Defense Artillery, sets up a Patriot missile battery during Sgt. Maj. of the Army Raymond F. Chandler’s visit to Rhine Ordnance Barracks.

Chandler’s visit showed that the “higher ups” care about lower ranking troops, said Pfc. Adam Krampen, a Buffalo, N.Y. native who helped

assemble the Battery D command post. “It means a lot to me,” Krampen said. “I’m proud to have met him.”

Department of Defense expands military drug testing panel In February, the secretary of defense announced that the Department of Defense will be expanding military drug testing in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations to avoid possible prescription drug misuse. The Air Force Drug Demand Reduction Program seeks to reduce the use of illicit drugs and the misuse of legal drugs through a combination of education and the random testing of military members and civilian personnel. According to the CDC, prescription drug abuse is the fastest growing drug problem in the U.S. The Air Force Drug Testing Laboratory will add testing for hydrocodone and hydromorphone to the current drug panel. Both drugs are classified as opioids and found in several commonly prescribed pain medications. The expansion of the testing panel for service members will commence May 1. These prescription medications should only be used under the supervision of a medical professional and within the timeframe specified. When used properly, these drugs can alleviate severe pain. However, improper use can have dangerous side effects and they can be highly addictive. The misuses of prescription medications can negatively affect the health and safety of the abuser, those around them, and the overall readiness of the unit. Service members are reminded to never take medications that are prescribed to someone else. Individuals who need assistance discontinuing the use of these drugs are encouraged to seek counseling services through self-referral, their medical provider, or their chain of command. Members of Team Ramstein can contact the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention and Treatment team at 479-2390 for support. Additionally, civilian counselors have been contracted by Military One Source to assist military personnel and their family members. They can be contacted at 1-800-342-9647 or at www. Medications should be properly disposed of after their intended use. Improperly disposed medications (e.g., general refuse, flushing down the toilet, etc.) can have negative environmental impacts, such as contamination of the water supply. Of equal concern is the potential for children to acquire unused and potentially expired medications that are stored in the home. In the U.S., the Drug Enforcement Agency’s National Prescription Drug Take-Back Events support the removal of unneeded prescription medications from homes. Unused and expired medications can be disposed of at the pharmacy in the Ramstein Clinic 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday, or in the Outpatient Pharmacy at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday to Friday, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

Going postal Airmen from the 86th Communications Squadron pitch the daily mail at the Northside Post Office Monday on Ramstein. Everyday tasks at the post office include unloading delivery trucks, marking parcels, receiving and pitching mail, and providing quality customer service for the entire KMC. With more than 600 parcels being delivered each day, the team at the post office works diligently to distribute mail to customers in a timely fashion. This team of dedicated professionals keep fellow Airman connected with family and friends while helping build morale and keeping the KMC mission ready.

WASHINGTON — The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Wing Commanders’ Guide was sent out to wing commanders recently and contains statistics, facts and talking points to help leaders encourage healthy conversations among their Airmen, which senior leaders say is paramount to eliminating sexual crimes in the Air Force. “Inspiring our Airmen to be good Wingmen is not just a worthy undertaking, it is a critical mission enabling task that has hope of one day creating an Air Force without sexual assault,” said Secretary of the Air Force Michael Donley. The guide gives leaders the tools necessary to enhance their leadership styles, change the force’s climate and environment, inspire community leadership, empower effective victim response efforts and enforce offender accountability standards. “America’s Airmen deserve nothing less than our full devotion to eradicating the threatening behavior to their well being,” said Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Norton Schwartz. “This crime threatens our people and for that reason alone, it is intolerable

and incompatible with who and what we are.” The Air Force’s SAPR program also includes Sexual Assault Response Coordinator training and the bystander-intervention training programs. Air Force leaders are focusing on community empowerment to enable Airmen to take care of fellow Airmen in eliminating sexual assault. “Empowering Airmen to intervene when their peers are in trouble is a key component of our training,”

said Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force James Roy. “We want our Airmen to understand they can make a difference by recognizing when their Wingman is at risk for making a poor decision.” Bystander intervention training was introduced in 2008 and the Air Force expects completion of this training for all Airmen by the end of June.

DECISION, from Page 2

chaos back on base, Struecker is advised that his column would have to go back to the Bakara market to secure a second downed Black Hawk helicopter and its pilot, Chief Warrant Officer Michael Durant. Shaken and scared, Spc. Brad Thomas tells Struecker that he cannot go back. Struecker responds, “It’s what you do now that makes a difference.” Those prophetic words resonate with tremendous impact. Struecker understood the significance of the choice that Thomas was making. He understood Thomas’ fear and reluctance to return to fight. He, too, was scared, but he also understood the magnitude of psychological burden that the Ranger would carry for the rest of his life by not returning to the fight. “It’s your call.” “The truth of the matter is that you always know the right thing to do. The hard part is doing it.” — Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf. Remember our Air Force core values and those three simple words: integrity, service and excellence. The core values are our guide. They are for all Airmen to read, to understand, to live by and to cherish. They define the values of our Air Force and establish the requirements of our professional service and obligation to understand the ethics demanded by them. Review the little blue book. It explains why we recognize the core values. Use the core values to guide you through your decisions — personal and professional. Make the right choices. “It takes less time to do things right, than to explain why you did it wrong.” — Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. As Airmen, we cannot pick which standards or rules are convenient for us to follow, but we are all human and we all make mistakes. We can’t change the reality of our mistakes, they are fact, but we can acknowledge and learn from our mistakes and strive not to make them again. “Watch your actions, they become habits, watch your habits, they become your character, watch your character, it becomes your destiny.” — Unknown source. “It’s what you do now that makes a difference.” The scene in this movie ends with Thomas defiantly taking a puff of an asthma inhaler and rejoining the Humvee column as Struecker watches through his rear view mirror nodding in approval.

18th MP Bde say goodbye to fallen hero during ceremony by Staff Sgt. Tramel S. Garrett 18th Military Police Brigade Public Affairs


oldiers, family members and civilians of the 18th Military Police Brigade, 21st Theater Sustainment Command, said their final goodbyes to Sgt. 1st Class Gerald Benton, 28, of Riverdale, Ga., during a memorial ceremony March 1 at the chapel on Daenner Kaserne in Kaiserslautern. “He was a father, husband, noncommissioned officer in charge and Soldier,” said Maj. Robert Matthews, the 95th MP Battalion executive officer. “It is not a time of mourning as it is a time of remembering — remembering his commitment to the unit, his love of soldiering and his dedication to the men and women he proudly served alongside.” Senior leaders from the 18th MP Bde. said Benton was considered an exemplary noncommissioned officer, always holding himself and his Anyone having any claims Soldiers to the highest of standards. on or obligations to the He set the example for every Soldier he encounestate of Sgt. 1st Class tered and inspired all of his subordinates to sucGerald R.

We will always have room for great Airmen in our Air Force,” said Roy. “Just like how I wear two badges, we may ask them to do something else in our Air Force. They’ll step up to the challenge.” As a final thought, the chief emphasized the type of Airmen Team Ramstein has. “The Airmen always impress me whenever I visit. They are very motivated here,” he said. “They’re the professionals that we expect across our entire Air Force and it’s highlighted here.” Roy enlisted in the Air Force in September 1982, started his career as a civil engineer and is the 16th chief master sergeant of the Air Force.

KMC one click away

from new Tricare online services


ricare Online is a great tool, but patients have not used it much in the past because it was cumbersome and had multiple password requirements for each family member. But this has all changed. Below are four improvements to Tricare Online that will likely start bringing patients back to the keyboard to use One Click Access to Family Appointments. With the use of your Common Access Card or just one password, sponsors and spouses can now book, view or cancel appointments online for both themselves and their dependents. Previously, sponsors and spouses needed passwords for every family member. Now, all family members can be scheduled with either a CAC or one password. E-mail and Text Message Reminders. Patients can now sign-up for e-mail or text message appointment reminders for both their appointments and their dependent’s appointments. To sign up for e-mail or text message appointment reminders, log on to TOL, select “My Profile” and enter the e-mail address or the phone number you want the appointment reminder to go to. No Waiting on the Phone. During telephone appointment peak times, patients may be on hold for up to 15 minutes when trying to book an appointment using the telephone appointment line. TOL gives patients instant access to log on 24 hours a day, seven days a week from anywhere in the world to book, view or cancel their appointment without having to wait on the phone. Fast Canceling. Cancel any appointment in just seconds through TOL. Patients oftentimes did not bother to cancel their medical appointments because they did not want to spend time on the phone waiting to talk to an appointment clerk. It was easier for patients to just not show up. “TOL gives patients a simple and quick way to cancel the appointment so someone else can use it,” said Maj. Gerald I. Smith Jr., 86th Medical Group practice manager. “The re-booked appointment gives our patients better access to care and reduces costly no shows.” For TOL technical assistance, call 0800-1011129 (OCONUS) option 8 or 1-800-600-9332 (CONUS) option 8.

KMC students honor beloved Dr. Seuss, celebrate Read Across America Read Across America is held annually to encourage children everywhere to celebrate reading on March 2, the birthday of children’s author Dr. Seuss. This day also provides National Education Association members, parents, caregivers and children the resources and activities they need to keep reading 365 days a year. Motivating children to read is an important factor in student achievement and creates lifelong successful readers. Research has shown that children who are motivated and spend more time reading do better in school. Dr. Seuss was born on March 2, 1904, and died Sept. 24, 1991. Some of his most famous books include “Horton Hears a Who,” “The Cat in the Hat,” “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” “Green Eggs and Ham” and “The Lorax.” (Courtesy of the National Education Association)

5-7 ADA Soldiers pledge partnership with VES by 2nd Lt. Jean P. Tomte 10th AAMDC Public Affairs Nineteen service members from the 5-7 Air Defense Artillery reached out to support Vogelweh Elementary School with special events, activities and educational learning. The community outreach program was initiated Nov. 11, 2011. “The School Sponsorship Program helps strengthen the community relationship and shows how Soldiers want to give back to the community,” said Chief Warrant Officer 3 Arnulfo Rios, an air and missile defense technician with the 5-7 ADA. Rios serves as the school sponsorship liaison, responsible for managing all volunteers in the program. “I feel that having five daughters of my own helps me with patience and understanding,” he said. “Once the teacher is focused on one group, I reinforce what the teacher already taught to the other group.” Rios usually volunteers one hour a day, three times a week. Volunteering is a great way to devote your time and skills to your community while helping others. In this case, Soldiers of the 5-7 ADA volunteer because they want to make a difference and, most importantly, be a role model to children in the community. The Vogelweh school principal Jane Page requested tutoring help for students in the subject areas of math and reading. In addition, service members structure practical exercise games, supervise during recess and lunch, and monitor traffic control during the prescribed hours. “I am hoping this will be a start of a wonderful partnership with a very supportive unit,” Page said. “Lt. Col. Philip G. Labasi Jr., commander of the 5-7 ADA, met with me on numerous occasions to see how the program was going. To me, it shows great command support.” Even though the unit faces a complex mission,

Not only Irish observe St. Patrick’s Day Saturday by Maddie Fahlbusch Ramstein High School Every year on March 17, the world turns green — not with envy, but for a holiday that has been celebrated for more than 1,000 years: St. Patrick’s Day. People acknowledge the colorful holiday as the saint’s religious feast day, and it commemorates Saint Patricius’ death. Individuals who observe St. Patrick’s Day in the traditional sense spend the morning at church and celebrate in the afternoon. During this special occasion, rules such as not eating meat for Lent

are allowed to be broken. In the evening, families come together for Irish bacon and cabbage, an authentic St. Paddy’s Day dinner. The Irish consider Saint Patricius (more commonly known as Saint Patrick) the patron saint of Ireland. He died around March 17, 461, which explains why the world celebrates St. Patrick’s Day in the middle of March. Saint Patrick holds so much significance with Ireland because historians believe he was the first to esablish Christianity there. Contrary to popular belief, Saint Patrick’s birthplace is Great Britain, not Ireland.

Also, interestingly enough, the first St. Patrick’s Day parade took place in the U.S., not Ireland. In fact, the U.S. is home to perhaps the most bizarre and creative St. Patrick’s Day tradition ever. Every year since 1962, Chicago dyes its river green in the holiday’s honor. However, unlike in this strange tradition’s early years, the city now dumps approximately 40 pounds of colored vegetable dye in the river so it appears green for a few hours as opposed to dumping 100 pounds of dye where the river remained green for close to a week.

Almost as interesting as the customs for the green holiday are its symbols and the origins surrounding them. The two most prominent in popular culture are the leprechaun and the shamrock. It is probably surprising that their faces are commonly adorned with beards and bushy eyebrows because leprechauns are actually Celtic fairies. Unlike their jolly portrayal in popular culture, leprechauns are believed to be unfriendly and unapproachable. Their hours are spent guarding their pot of gold and making shoes, so if you’re on the hunt to score a pot of

gold of your own, keep your ears open for the sound of a shoemaker’s hammer. If you are fortunate enough to come across these difficult to find creatures, make sure you keep your eyes on them at all times or else they will vanish and all hope of obtaining their gold will be forever lost. If, however, you’re unsuccessful in acquiring a pot of gold, keep your eyes open for a shamrock. Shamrocks, or three-leaved clovers, are so highly valued by the Irish because three is considered Ireland’s magic number. Best of luck on your St. Patrick’s Day adventures. Erin go bragh!

The history of Ramstein Air Base by Dr. Silvano A. Wueschner 86th Airlift Wing historian


f there is one question I have been consistently asked in the past six months, it is, “Why did the Air Force choose Ramstein as a location for a base?” To answer that question requires one to frame the response in the context of the Cold War. As the wartime cooperation between the U.S. and the Soviet Union ended and tensions between the two countries mounted, the U.S. came to see Soviet expansionism as a threat to its own interests and began shaping a new policy of containment, a policy that crystallized in 1947 when suspected Sovietbacked Communist guerrillas launched a civil war against the Greek government. Soviet influence in Greece threatened U.S. interests in the eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East, especially Turkey and Iran. American reaction resulted in the Truman Doctrine, which called for large-scale military and economic assistance in order to prevent communism from taking hold in Greece and Turkey and thereby lessen the threat to the entire Middle East. The congressional appropriation, which followed, reversed the postwar trend toward sharp cuts in foreign spending and marked a new level of commitment to the Cold War.

President Truman also turned to the National Security Council to devise a new diplomatic and military blueprint. The result was NSC-68, a report that recommended an increase in U.S. conventional forces. In the ensuing buildup of forces, the number of U.S. Air Force combat wings increased from 48 in 1950 to 95 by June 1952. The increase in air assets and personnel required additional facilities to house them. More importantly, planners began to reassess how best to deploy their aircraft and associated facilities. That rethinking led to the decision to build six new bases in Rheinland-Pfalz, which at the time had two existing military airstrips, one at Pferdsfeld and the other at Baumholder. Pferdsfeld had been built by the German Luftwaffe in 1938. In the 1950s, it was periodically used by the U.S. Air Force to conduct exercises. From 1961 until 1997 it served as a German Luftwaffe base once again. The airfield at Baumholder, built in the early 1940s, came under U.S. Army control in 1951 and was used exclusively by U.S. Army air assets. There was also an auxiliary Luftwaffe landing strip on a portion of the old autobahn between Landstuhl and Ramstein. It was here that two adjoining bases, Landstuhl Air Base and Ramstein Air Base, were to be located.

From a strategic perspective, the decision to construct six bases on the west side of the Rhine made sense because it placed them behind a natural barrier, and in the majority of cases, surrounded by protective topography. It also placed them in a straight line approach to the Fulda Gap, from where the Soviet attack on the bases in the Rhein-Main area was expected to begin. The tactical air assets based at these six bases could be used in an offensive or defensive capacity to counter the Soviet advance or they could be employed to provide close air support for army infantry units meeting the Soviet advance head on. Evidence of planning for the latter contingency was seen on Feb. 11, 1952, when the 86th FighterBomber Wing, based at Neubiberg, furnished four F-84-E Thunderjets for a combined infantry-artillery training exercise with the 2nd Armored Division at Baumholder. The bottom line for military planners was that these bases would be better protected and in closer proximity to the forward edge of the battle area and easier to integrate into joint operations. At the time, these bases were situated in an area of stability near an area of potential instability. Much in the same way today, Ramstein operates from an area of stability as it carries out its missions in Southwest Asia, the Middle East and Africa regions.

Common Access Card being reissued

If you receive an e-mail from DMDC.CAC.Replacement.Notification@osd. notifying you that your Common Access Card must be replaced, do not delete. This e-mail is not a hoax. Contact your servicing ID Cards Office for reissue of your CAC. As of Feb. 2, the 786th Force Support Squadron ID Cards Office has been reissuing new CACs to eliminate all 64K and 72K CACs with RSA 1024 bit keys. The new 128K and 144K CACs issued have a 2048 bit encryption key, which is required to support network access later in 2012. Most individuals will already have a new 128K or 144K CAC. Individuals with a 64K or 72K CAC expiring before Oct. 1 will be taken care of through attrition and will not receive a new card any sooner than normal.

All 64K and 72K CAC holders with expiration dates beyond Oct. 1 will receive the above mentioned e-mail from DMDC. Upon receipt of this e-mail, the member should call their servicing ID Cards Office (Bldg. 2106, first floor) at 480-6599 or 06371-476599 and make an appointment. To verify if your CAC needs to be replaced, you can look on the back of your card. Above the black strip there is a series of numbers. If your CAC shows 64K or 72K, it will need to be reissued prior to Oct. 1. Note: Any contractor employee who has a “verified” record and expiration date in DEERS, does not need to visit their CVS agent for a new application. Reissue on the current DEERS record is possible.

To sign up for Secure Messaging, beneficiaries can provide their personal e-mail at their respective primary care clinic. They will then receive an e-mail invitation to join the service the same day. In the coming months, Secure Messaging will be available at all LRMC clinics in Belgium, Germany and Italy. Although new to Army medicine in Europe, Secure Messaging is currently in use by more than 2,000 military and civilian medical providers from more than 50 sites in the U.S., accounting for more than 210,000 patient mes-

sages over the past six months. Although beneficiaries receive a personal e-mail letting them know they have information awaiting them on Secure Messaging, they use a personal password to log into the Secure Messaging site. The secure site, contracted through Relay Health, is in compliance with the Federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and stringently protects your personal information through encryption technology. Your information is only accessible by you and your health care team. Secure Messaging is also a valuable tool for clinics and doctors to communicate with patients and to remind them of preventive services. Clinics can easily send reminders about immunizations, screening such as Well Baby Visits, medication recalls and flu vaccine availability. An example of a typical patient message through Secure Messaging would be a mother concerned about

her child who wakes up with a rash on her stomach. Instead of taking her child to the emergency room or trying to schedule a medical appointment, the mother could communicate through Secure Messaging with a nurse or doctor for advice on treating her child at home and/or bringing them in for a medical appointment. Secure Messaging is popular with both beneficiaries and medical staffers because of its usefulness and efficiency. “Secure Messaging is a win-win for everyone,” said Gregory Milliger, a health care consultant at LRMC. “The patient can communicate with their care team between scheduled clinic visits without having to go into the clinic. The civilian health care delivery sector adopted this concept about five years ago and it had an immediate impact on how doctors interacted with their patients. Communicating with patients between clinic visits allows doctors to focus on the patient’s health and not just their health care.”

More is fun, but less is better, healthier protein foods such as beans, seafood, lean meat and poultry.

by Capt. Jeremy F. Brooks Landstuhl Regional Medical Center


Get into the kitchen and stay in charge of what you’re eating. Cooking more often at home not only allows you to balance what’s on your plate, but also enables you to choose healthier fats, less sodium and increase the fiber in your diet while balancing the amount of calories you eat. Then, when you eat out, you’ll be more apt to recognize healthy portion sizes based on your experiences at home. Take the tactic of choosing lower calorie menu options when dining out by focusing on vegetables, fruits and whole grains.

ood is meant to be enjoyed, but eating less is the key to weight management and disease prevention, according to the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for

Americans. During National Nutrition Month, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (formerly the American Dietetic Association) encourages everyone to “Get Your Plate in Shape.” Have you heard about the new “plate” that has replaced the old food pyramid? It’s called MyPlate and it’s based on the most recent revision of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Recently, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced a new tool to help individuals take those guidelines and put them into practice. The SuperTracker is a comprehensive, state-of-the-art resource available at designed to assist individuals as they make changes in their life to reduce their risk of chronic disease and maintain a healthy weight. More than just an online food and activity tracker, the SuperTracker has a “Food-A-Pedia” for looking up nutrition information for more than 8,000 foods and specific ways to help you customize and personalize the information just for you. Here are some simple and practical ways to eat fewer calories while savoring and enjoying your food: Be mindful of your daily calorie needs. Find your personal daily calorie quota using the website. When planning your meals and snacks throughout the day, keep your calorie needs in mind. A simple way to do this is to think about the portions on your plate. Divide your plate in four sections with one each for whole grains, lean proteins, vegetables and fruits, and a side of dairy, such as a cup of low-fat milk or yogurt or an ounce of cheese. Avoid oversized portions by using smaller plates, bowls and glasses. Portion sizes have exploded over the past 20 years — and so have our waistlines. The standard 10-inch plate may be too large for you. Switch to 8-inch or appetizer-sized plates and you will automatically portion and eat less without feeling deprived. Pile your plate with nutrient-dense, lower-calorie foods like vegetables, fruits, whole grains and lean

Watch out for liquid calories. The calories in fruit juices and drinks with added sugar, sports drinks, sugar-laden coffee beverages and soft drinks can add up fast. Drink water instead of sugary drinks. Make it a point to carry a bottle of water with you during the day. Try diluting fruit juice with water to cut the sugar and calories, while still providing some flavor. Also, think before you drink alcoholic beverages as they have calories too. Remember to drink alcohol sensibly by capping it with one drink a day for women or two drinks a day for men. A standard drink is 5 ounces of wine, 12 ounces of beer or 1.5 ounces of distilled spirits. Need more information? A registered dietitian can help. Contact your local dietitian located at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center for more information at 486-8144 or 06371-86-7144.

John Carter (PG-13) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; War-weary former military Capt. John Carter is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in a conďŹ&#x201A;ict of epic proportions amongst the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris. In a world on the brink of collapse, Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands. Starring Taylor Kitsch and Lynn Collins. Joyful Noise (PG-13) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The small town of Pacashau, Ga., has fallen on hard times, but the people are counting on the Divinity Church Choir to lift their spirits by winning the National Joyful Noise Competition. The choir has always known how to sing in

harmony, but the discord between its two leading ladies now threatens to tear them apart. Their newly appointed director, Vi Rose Hill, stubbornly wants to stick with their tried-and-true traditional style, while the fiery G.G. Sparrow thinks tried-and-true translates to tired-and-old. Shaking things up even more is the arrival of G.G.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rebellious grandson, Randy. Randy has an ear for music, but he also has an eye for Vi Roseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beautiful and talented daughter, Olivia. If these two strong-willed women can put aside their differences, they â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and their choir â&#x20AC;&#x201D; may make the most joyful noise of all. Starring Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton.
