Exercise Serpentex 16: Cleared hot Story and photo by Staff Sgt. Sara Keller 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs CORSICA, France — Airmen from the U.S. and 11 NATO countries officially kicked off the Frenchled exercise Serpentex 16 March 7 on the island of Corsica, France. Approximately 215 Airmen, including joint terminal attack controllers from the 2nd Air Support Operations Squadron from Vilseck, Germany, are participating in the annual exercise held at NATO’s tactical training center and the French air force’s Air Base 126 Solenzara. The multinational exercise is focused on the training of U.S. and NATO aircrews and JTACs on the air and land integration mission, to include close air support, dynamic targeting, strike coordination and reconnaissance, and live ordnance operations. JTACs are qualified service members who direct the

action of air- and surfacebased fire at the tactical level. They are the Airmen on the ground with the authority to control and direct airstrikes on targets. “There are times, like when we are deployed, when

we work with JTACs from other countries, and sometimes we do things a little differently,” said Tech. Sgt. Jeremy Rarang, 2nd ASOS JTAC. “This exercise is giving us the opportunity to build partnership capacity

and know how to better work with our allies when we are in those situations.” Serpentex has occurred annually since 2008 and has contributed to the development of U.S. and NATO relations, capabilities, interop-

erability and multinational training between allies. Other U.S. Air Force participants include three B-52 Stratofortress bombers from the 2nd Bomb Wing, Barksdale Air Force Base, Louisiana. Other countries participating include France, Belgium, Canada, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Slovenia, Spain and the United Kingdom. “Exercises like Serpentex are exciting and extremely useful because we get to learn different countries’ equipment and how they would control in a realword scenario,” said Senior Airman Gage Duvall, 2nd ASOS JTAC. “I know that we will be able to learn a few things from all the different JTACs, and hopefully they will get to learn something from us.” The training exercise will continue through March 25 with a variety of training scenarios to increase the Air Force’s ability to work side by side with its European allies and partners.

From DWI to resilience trainer

COMMENTARY

by Staff Sgt. Timothy Moore 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs U.S. Air Forces in Europe recently gained more than 70 master resilience trainers; I count myself lucky to be one of them. However, some people would say the Air Force is lucky to count me as one of its MRTs. The people who know my personal Air Force history have referred to me as the epitome of resilience. I don’t know about that myself, but let me share my history with you. I enlisted in the Air Force in 2010 after graduating college with my bachelor’s degree in physics. In basic military training, I had one goal: to leave with my military training instructor not knowing my name. I failed, as I was picked to be an element leader shortly after getting there, and I finished BMT as an honor graduate. I then proceeded to technical training at Fort Meade, Maryland, where I was one of the top students but fell just short of distinguished graduate. I arrived at my first duty station, Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Arizona, where I won two wing staff agencies’ Airman of the quarter awards while staying active in my community as a volunteer lead and pursuing the few credits my bachelor’s didn’t cover for my Community College of the Air Force degree. All of these things played a part in me being awarded the rank of senior airman early, under the Below-the-Zone program, which in turn allowed me to test for staff sergeant a year earlier than I normally would have. I found out I made staff sergeant shortly before finding out I would be making a permanent change of station to Ramstein, arguably one of

the best assignments in the Air Force, but I wasn’t really happy about either one. I’m not one of those people that want to rush to rank. Yes, more money and more opportunities come with it but so does more responsibility, and that was the focus of my mind. I wasn’t sure I was ready to lead and be in charge of someone else’s career, even though my superintendent at the time told me I was being groomed to be a chief master sergeant. Additionally, I got picked up for Ramstein because it was still on my selection sheet from when I was engaged to a French woman, who I broke up with two years prior, because it was the closest the Air Force could get me to the part of France where her family lived without being assigned to a consulate. I also had to let another relationship go because Ramstein placed distance between us. So, I wasn’t thrilled about either aspect as they brought up questions I wasn’t really ready to deal with: Am I ready to be an NCO? How am I going to deal with being in a location that brings up a moment, in my mind at least, when I failed? But I pushed on as expected, and I only brought up my reservations about being an NCO to my new leaders at Ramstein before I headed to Airman Leadership School, where again I excelled as I graduated at the top of my class as the John L. Levitow Award winner. Things were looking to continue onward and upward for my career, until I made a mistake. The very same night I graduated ALS as the Levitow award winner was the same night I was charged with driving while intoxicated. It was April 1, 2014, one heck of a buildup to an April

Fools’ joke on my career. It was even crueler as both my first sergeant and my supervisor, who only hours earlier saw me win a distinguished award, had to pick me up from a police station. I sometimes still feel the sad pat on my back my first sergeant gave me as my supervisor walked me out of the station to head home, and that honestly hurt more than the actual punishment I got from getting a DWI. The first few days were rough. I went through a cycle of grief. I denied it happened, but my car missing from my driveway said otherwise. I got angry at myself for being stupid. I barely ate or got out of bed. I even laid down once and asked God to just let me make it through this without being kicked out of the Air Force. Then, I finally accepted that if I didn’t get kicked out I would do my best to leave the Air Force on my terms. At least, I thought I had accepted it. My blood alcohol level wasn’t high enough to warrant a more severe punishment, so my commander gave me a letter of reprimand and took away my line number for staff sergeant, a guarantee to a referral enlisted performance report and a warning that I had put myself on the chopping block should a force reduction require it. The situation was not ideal, but I was still in the Air Force at the moment and still able to work toward being better. However, this was harder than I thought. I had to make some personal changes to better suit my unit, but I definitely didn’t get a warm fuzzy feeling from them. Many of my co-workers, both Airmen and NCOs I thought I had formed bonds with, quickly distanced themselves from

me. Even some of the people I considered friends from DavisMonthan stopped talking to me. I wasn’t being tasked with any job. Most people didn’t even look me in the eyes. I felt as if I had been put off to the side as if to say, “He’ll be out of here soon. Let’s just make sure he doesn’t do any more damage to our reputation.” No one actually said this, and I don’t think I would have blamed them if they had, but actions can often speak louder than words. Initially, I had to find things to do. Some people took notice of my initiative and started tasking me again. The first person was actually another senior airman who needed help covering a story for the base paper. Then, the person who would eventually become my new supervisor had a conversation with me. She asked me how I was doing, made sure I wasn’t planning to hurt myself or give up. Then, she said she was proud of me for not giving up because she had seen other Airmen, even some in our shop, who would have had they been in my shoes. She also encouraged me to keep going and to be an example to other Airmen. I’m just now realizing that was the moment I gave up most of my reservations about being an NCO. So, I kept plugging along doing what I could to show that incident wasn’t indicative of the person I am and strive to be. I had to admit some things to myself. I had fallen, my relationship issues were bigger to me than I realized, those fears of being an NCO were part of the underlying cause to my heavier drinking and reckless behavior, and it hurt to be shunned.

not miss a beat, according to Lt. Col. Craig Lindstrom, 76th AS director of operations. “The level of effort required to simultaneously plan and support operations on four continents, encircling the globe, was (impressive),”

Lindstrom said. “Our aircrews are the primary conduit for the planning, but everything channels back through our squadron operations center. It was truly a team effort between the 76th AS and the 603rd (Air Operations Center) (distinguished visitors) plans shop.” The challenges presented did not

hinder the Ramstein team, as they are always “Forward, Ready, Now,” said Lt. Col. Daniel Mangan, 76th AS commander. “We’re forward here in Europe to support (distinguished visitors) and to provide aeromedical (evacuation) capability,” Mangan said. “Being on four continents at the same time from

a small unit at Ramstein is significant. We’ve never done it before, and we accomplished it with only 110 people, using four different airplane types at the same time, while also combat deployed and while providing 24/7/365 aeromedical ‘evac’ coverage for Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.”

Hiring Our Heroes comes to KMC, guides smooth transitions

Lt. Col. Mark Sherkey, Northeast U.S. and Europe U.S. Army Soldier For Life regional director, talks during a Hiring Our Heroes Kaiserslautern Military Community Transition Summit March 10 on Vogelweh. Leaders spoke during Key speakers talk about their organizations, what they offer, and answer questions during a Hiring Our Heroes the summit to empower transitioning service members to take control of their futures and make informed decisions. Kaiserslautern Military Community Transition Summit March 10 on Vogelweh.

Story and photos by Airman 1st Class Larissa Greatwood 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs A Hiring Our Heroes Kaiserslautern Military Community Transition Summit was held March 10 and 11 on Vogelweh. The purpose of the summit was to inform transitioning service members and their spouses of programs and companies to assist through and after the process of leaving the military. Hiring Our Heroes is a nationwide U.S. Chamber of Commerce foundation to help transitioning military members and their spouses find jobs and opportunities after their service commitments. “We hold about 20 of these transitioning summits annually on military installations, primarily around the U.S., but also a few international ones, like this one in Germany,” said Sarah Worley, Hiring

Our Heroes senior manager. “We try to go where we’re needed, and our goal is to help service members and their families create a more seamless transition into the civilian workforce.” Worley said the veteran unemployment rate is the lowest it’s been in seven years at just under 4 percent. Programs like Hiring Our Heroes could be a key factor in educating and progressively decreasing this statistic. “A lot of veteran service organizations, like (Hiring Our Heroes), know they’re doing the work they need to be doing, but what some people don’t realize is more than half of the transitioning service members population is unemployed in the first 15 months of getting out of the military,” Worley said. “The summits are designed to get those service members thinking ahead of time about opportunities because a lot of times they don’t know where to start.”

During the summit, attendees listened to leaders empowering them to make informed decisions. Key speakers talked about actively seeking to hire veterans for their companies and were given the opportunity to attend workshops to improve networking connections, as well as given information on how to start their own businesses. Staff Sgt. Joe Filipowski, 86th Medical Support Squadron contingency operations NCO, said the event was beneficial and educated him on opportunities. “The summit has helped me gain confidence for when I do separate,” Filipowski said. “It’s good to start planning to transition as early as possible. Some military members may have less time to plan, so I think this experience would be beneficial to them, especially because they provide immediate contacts for careers and organizations for assistance.” Worley said the number of

companies actively seeking veteran employees is increasing, and events like this help other organizations understand the unique talents and abilities military members have to offer, making them very desirable. “Because of the generous support of our sponsors, we’re able to do this event,” Worley said. “Companies who want to hire veterans and their spouses are really setting a gold standard and are reaching out to other companies as well, and that is so

invaluable to not only what we do but mostly to the service members and spouses because they’re wanted by these companies, who can see how much of an asset they can be.” The Hiring Our Heroes event gave transitioning service members the opportunity to become more informed about their options for their futures. By assisting during transitions, veterans can remain just as successful in the civilian sector as they were in the military.

Airmen from the 1st Combat Communications Squadron and 52nd CBCS and Soldiers from the 44th Expeditionary Signals Battalion work together to support U.S. European Command exercise Juniper Cobra 16 March 3 in Israel. Juniper Cobra uses ballistic-missile defense computer simulations to train U.S. and Israeli service members while reinforcing a strong military relationship.

by Senior Airman Jonathan Stefanko 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Approximately 25 Airmen from the 1st Combat Communications Squadron left Israel March 8 after providing network support that ensured the success of Juniper Cobra 16. Juniper Cobra 16 is a combined ballisticmissile defense exercise held every two years by the U.S. European Command and Israeli Defense Forces. This year was the eighth in a series of biennial exercises of the two militaries since 2001. Airmen from the 1st CBCS established networks as well as installed the infrastructure necessary to enable the ballistic-missile defense fight. “We had to engineer an automatic connectivity fail-over capability between not only the Air Force and Army networks but the Israel Defense Forces as well,” said 1st Lt. Jonathan Garcia, 1st CBCS airfield systems flight commander. “It’s awesome to work alongside so many different people and see how they contribute to the mission.” Though the role for Airmen was specific to ensuring network stability, each day came with new challenges for them to overcome. “Our job was as simple as running and terminating Ethernet cables to as difficult as developing network architecture, which was required to support our capabilities,” Garcia said. “Every challenge we faced was a learning experience. We even worked alongside the U.S. Army, which garnered its own benefits to our growth as Airmen.” During the exercise, more than 1,700 U.S. service members, civilians and contractors worked with the Israel Defense Forces to address computer-simulated challenges that may occur in real-world operations. “This exercise is a significant milestone in the strategic relationship between the two countries, a security alliance unmatched by any other country in the world,” said Brig. Gen. Zvika Halmovich, Aerial Defense Division command-

er. “This collaboration reflects a commitment to protecting civilian lives, as well as a deep appreciation for the Israel Defense Forces, Israel Air Force and the Aerial Defense System.” Along with exercising their cyber capabilities, the 1st CBCS Airmen also networked with their Israeli counterparts in hopes to build partnerships as well as improve current processes. “At first, everyone stayed within their respective work areas, but not long after everyone started to open up and realize that the other units could make each other’s lives much easier, if we work together,” Garcia said. “The exercise enabled us to see how the Israelis operate so that we can identify areas for improvement and potentially develop best practices for both countries.” Though the exercise lasted from Feb. 21 to March 4, Ramstein Airmen were in Israel from Jan. 9 to March 8 to provide additional cyber support for the exercise. “The 1st CBCS has two teams dedicated to our mission at all times, one training while the other is standing by to deploy,” Garcia said. “We practice like we fight and are confident we’re ready to face any wrenches thrown at us.” Throughout the exercise, both nations’ service members were tested on a variety of computer-assisted simulations ranging from ballistic-missile defense, crisis re-supply, foreign-disaster response and foreign-humanitarian assistance, and the skills gained through the trials faced will strengthen the militaries’ capabilities and established friendships. “To the entire 1,700 total force Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines, civilians and contractors: Thank you for your selfless work and an incredible job well done,” said Lt. Gen. Timothy Ray, 3rd Air Force and 17th Expeditionary Air Force commander. “I’m very proud to be a part of this team. Thank you to the planners and white cell who ran the exercise and to our gracious Israeli hosts. The U.S. remains fully committed to the security of Israel and ready, tomorrow, next month or in Juniper Cobra 18.”

expected, but due to the change to a static closeout date for EPRs, I received another one in six months. This allowed me to test for staff sergeant again in 2015. Spoiler alert: I made it again. Making staff sergeant wasn’t the highlight of 2015 for me. I met a wonderful woman at the end of 2014, who I made my wife and with whom I now have a beautiful daughter. I kept pushing forward. I got involved with my community again, and I took steps to start working toward my master’s degree. I kept moving forward in work as well. I became a self-aid and buddy care instructor. I also became a resilience training assistant, which eventually led to me being selected for the MRT course. During the MRT course, I heard many people share intimate moments in their lives, which they had to overcome. One particular story hit close as another NCO shared how he had been demoted. I had been asked to share my story. Again, some people saw me as the epitome of resilience, but I just couldn’t find it in myself to do it. I didn’t know why until I heard him tell his story in conjunction with the lesson we were learning. I had never really accepted it and moved on. I had never even told my family back home because I didn’t want to disappoint them. Almost two years had passed, and I had kept it away from them. So, that’s what I did, and they responded with, “Everything happens for a reason. … Look at you now,” “We’re still proud of you,” and “We love you.” Now, I don’t know if I’ll share this story often. I still don’t think it’s indicative of who I am. I still don’t think I’m an epitome of resilience, but I have some resilient qualities for sure. What I do know is I’m lucky to have the support I do, and I’m lucky to be an MRT because now I get to teach others how to make it through those difficult situations.

NCO academy begins first European ILE

Airmen review course material during the first interactive leadership course in Europe March 3 on Kapaun. The Kisling NCO Academy hosted the class designed to exercise skills learned during the online distance-learning platform, Course 15.

Story and photo by Staff Sgt. Armando Schwier-Morales 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs The Kisling NCO Academy kicked off the first interactive leadership course in Europe March 3 on Kapaun. Intermediate Leadership Experience is part of

an Airman’s professional military education and is completed by eligible candidates after they finish the online distance-learning platform, Course 15. “The Intermediate Leadership Experience course goals say it all,” said Chief Master Sgt. Tamar Dennis, Kisling NCOA commandant. “We develop adaptable NCOs for current and future leadership and management challenges in order to operate

(think and act) critically in these complex and ambiguous environments.” ILE is designed to develop leadership, interpersonal communication, and many other concepts and tools for leaders through guided group discussions, assignments and speeches. ILE is also intended to complement the Course 15 material. “We have a stellar group of junior noncommissioned officers in (U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa) performing significant Air Force missions,” Dennis said. “We are honored and humbled for the opportunity to prepare them to lead and manage in these ambiguous and complex environments they operate in daily. We do not take this responsibility lightly because the stakes are high once they return to their organizations.” To get ready for their students, NCOA instructors collaborated for months with the Thomas N. Barnes Center for Enlisted Education on MaxwellGunter Air Force Base, Alabama, to ensure both they and their lesson plans were ready for the new students. “At the center, the instructors where highly motivated, and they got me excited about the course,” Johnson said. “Now I am trying to help get these Airmen to the next level.” Tech. Sgt. Christopher Johnson, Kisling NCOA instructor, visited the Barnes Center and guided his fellow instructors upon returning. Professional military education is constantly changing to develop Airmen. According to Johnson, Kisling is proud to be a pioneer and help educate more Airmen to be the best leaders they can be.

B-52s join French forces for close air support exercise by Senior Airman Joseph Raatz 20th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron Public Affairs MORÓN AIR BASE, Spain — U.S. Air Force B-52 Stratofortresses joined French aircraft and ground troops from a dozen nations to kick off a close air support exercise March 7 in the Mediterranean. Serpentex, an annual French-led exercise, involves joint-terminal attack controllers from 12 partner countries. Operating on the French island of Corsica, these JTACs work together to practice properly identifying targets and using that data to call in air strikes from nearby French and American aircraft. “Serpentex is a great opportunity to have all the JTACs from coalition nations in one place, training together to increase interoperability and work on communication skills,” said Maj. Sarah Fortin, 20th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron assistant director of

operations. “It gives them a chance to train and get smart on what they have to do and what their capabilities are, so later on down the road when it counts, they can perform effectively and efficiently.” Serpentex differs from other joint military exercises in the region, as it concentrates solely on close air support. This critical capability puts the power of precise, concentrated airstrikes in the hands of troops on the ground, who can call these strikes in to defend themselves against enemy attacks or to eliminate vital targets with lethal accuracy. This is the first year B-52s were invited to participate in the exercise, as the role of CAS has traditionally been filled by various fighter platforms. The Stratofortress is well-suited for this application however, as it can loiter for extended periods and carries a wider range of munitions than any other aircraft in the U.S. inventory. During the exercise, the B-52s will join with French

fighters to support JTACs from several NATO nations as well as those from Jordan and Saudi Arabia, who are also participating this year. Training with a wide range of mission partners ensures a more comprehensive learning experience, Fortin explained. “Working alongside our coalition partners out there will be a great experience for everybody,” Fortin said. “Most of them haven’t worked with bombers for these types of missions before. We have a longer duration and a lot wider turn radius than some of the fighters, so they’re going to have to find a new pacing for calling us in for close air support. But I promise that bomber CAS is worth the wait.” The B-52s involved in Serpentex also participated in the Norwegian-led Cold Response 16, a large-scale NATO military training exercise in the Trondelag region of Norway involving 16,000 troops and comprising air, ground and maritime opera-

tions. The bombers will participate in both exercises simultaneously for a short time as Cold Response winds down. Temporarily stationing the aircraft in Europe allowed for more sorties, shorter flight times, less fuel burned and more training hours. “The ability to train bomber aircrews in different geographic combatant commands is essential to maintaining a

strong, credible bomber force that enhances the security and stability of our allies and partners,” said Lt. Col. Dennis Cummings, 20th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron commander. “Our ability to smoothly and effectively conduct these multinational missions is heavily indebted to the hospitality of Spain and fantastic support we are receiving from U.S. Air Forces Europe.”

From mud to sun, weather covers all Story and photo by Staff Sgt. Timothy Moore 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Snow plows are prepared to clear an airfield, a base is issued a delayed reporting notification, and the running portion of a physical fitness assessment is moved inside. While these events may seem unrelated, they all have one thing in common: a weather forecast played a part in the decision. Weather is something many people may not consciously think about until it affects their routine, but for the Airmen at the 21st Operational Weather Squadron, weather is at the front of their minds. “We provide timely, accurate and relevant weather intelligence to make sure the U.S. European Command and U.S. Africa Command missions are met,” said 2nd Lt. Daniel Bazemore, 21st OWS weather officer. The 21st OWS provides forecasts, weather advisories and resource protection warnings for Air Force, Army and Navy facilities within U.S. European Command and U.S. Africa Command. The 21st OWS Airmen work with their counterparts throughout both commands’ areas of responsibility to ensure the products are as accurate as possible. “We have weather flights that we support all throughout those AORs,” said Staff Sgt. James Hale, 21st OWS weather forecaster. “Any mission that takes off in either of those AORs has to get weather information from us before they can take off.” To provide accurate data, the 21st OWS Airmen will contact a weather flight in the area for which they are making a weather forecast. After monitoring weather patterns, they contact a local weather

Senior Airman Amanda Diaz (left) and Airman 1st Class Aaron Wolak, both 21st Operational Weather Squadron weather forecasters, monitor the weather patterns of northern Europe Feb. 22, on Kapaun. The mission of the 21st OWS is to provide timely and accurate forecast products to customers across the areas of responsibility of U.S. European Command and U.S. Africa Command.

flight to get a visual confirmation of what they are forecasting. However, there are some monitored areas where there is no local weather flight to provide responses on their weather forecasts. In instances such as these, the 21st OWS relies on satellite imaging or observations from a mechanical tool or their customers. “In regions where radar is sparse, we are highly dependent upon observations,” Bazemore said. “That comes from civilian observations or our observational equipment. That’s the great thing about satellite observation. Even if we don’t have a surface observation, we do have an image on that area from our eye in the sky.” Feedback on the quality of their forecasts isn’t the only time weather forecasters speak with their customers. “In the flight-weather briefing section, we provide

weather forecasts for our pilots,” Hale said. “We receive (a) pilot-to-metro-service call, which is a phone line patch from an airborne pilot who needs quick and relevant weather information.” According to Hale, a pilot-to-metro-service call shouldn’t last more than one to two minutes. Thus, the weather forecaster has to be certified to be in the section and capable of accessing all the information required to inform the pilot of how the weather is expected to behave on their route. “The most rewarding part for me is working in that section,” Hale said. “I can actually see the end result of what I’m supporting. I write forecasts every day, but I have no idea what customer is using them. I know everyone is using them, but I don’t know for what purpose. When I’m giving a pilot weather information directly, I get to see how that impacts the mission.” Similarly, many people are probably not aware that they are using the products from the 21st OWS, as they don’t just provide weather forecasts for flying missions. The weather forecasters produce approximately three products a day for the 11 areas they monitor around the clock. “We touch entire installations,” Bazemore said. “Weather affects personnel, maintenance or whatever it might be. We get the reports to the decision makers so they make the appropriate call.” Whether it is pulling maintainers off the flight line because of the heat index, redirecting a mission to another location because of inclement weather, or informing the populace the roads are safe to drive on, the decision was likely made based on a product from a weather forecaster. Just as the weather they monitor does, the 21st OWS Airmen affect everyone under their scope.

Retired three-star admiral shares disaster relief experiences with 7th MSC by Lt. Col. Jefferson Wolfe 7th Mission Support Command Public Affairs A retired vice admiral with extensive experience in humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations visited the 7th Mission Support Command March 11. Retired Navy Vice Adm. Michael A. LeFever will be the senior mentor during the 7th MSC’s upcoming annual training exercise, Anakonda Response, in April. The exercise simulates a U.S. response to a catastrophic flooding event. “I’m looking forward to getting to know you and working with you on this exercise,” LeFever told the Soldiers and civilians of the 7th MSC during a town hall-style discussion. LeFever was in charge of the U.S. military’s response to two natural disasters in Pakistan. In 2005 and 2006, LeFever was assigned as commander of the Disaster Assistance Center,

Pakistan, to coordinate U.S. military assistance during a devastating earthquake. The four-minute event registered a magnitude of 7.6, displaced 3.5 million people, and killed nearly 75,000 in Pakistan and India, LeFever said. In 2010, as the senior defense representative at the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad, LeFever led the U.S. military response to the catastrophic flooding of the Indus River, which submerged one-fifth of the country, damaged or destroyed 1.2 million homes, and affected 17 million people. While conducting these disaster responses, LeFever had to come up with innovative solutions with no precedent, said Command Sgt. Maj. James Murrin, 7th MSC senior enlisted leader. “He’s got the experience when it comes to doctrine but completely understands that doctrine is just a guide, not a limiting factor,” Murrin said.

Retired Navy Vice Adm. Michael LeFever receives a 7th Mission Support Command brief from 7th MSC senior leaders, including James Otto, 7th MSC command executive officer, March 4 during his visit to 7th MSC headquarters. LeFever also shared his experience in humanitarian assistance and disaster response and partnership development.

“It wasn’t easy, but he was able to make it work.” As senior mentor, LeFever will be working directly with Brig. Gen. Arlan DeBlieck, 7th MSC commanding general, but the whole command will benefit from his experience, said Lt. Col. Lance Oliver, the exercise planner. “He will help us inject some realism into the CPX (Command Post Exercise) scenario and correct our assump-

tions based on his past experience,” Oliver said. During LeFever’s visit, the 7th MSC staff briefed him about the command and the upcoming exercise. LeFever also took time to speak to the Soldiers and civilians about his experiences in Pakistan. “The key to a humanitarian operation is trying to get the population back to normalcy as quickly as you can,” LeFever said.

With disasters of this magnitude, it is essential to put aside personal and organizational ego and work to get the job done, LeFever said. The trust that relationships bring is essential to getting the job done. “I tell everybody that my priority was relationships, relationships, relationships, in that order,” LeFever said. A successful response builds credibility and deepens personal relationships, LeFever said. It also demonstrates good will and commitment and shows strategic impact with U.S. enablers. Despite the challenges, LeFever lists the HA-DR efforts as his career highlight. Being personally responsible for helping so many people is an incredibly powerful experience, LeFever said. “Once you do this mission, it gets in your blood,” LeFever added. “There’s nothing like it.”

Ingredients (for 4 people) 4 chicken breasts 4-6 red/purple onions 1 cup red wine 1 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 2 tablespoons vegetable oil Salt to taste Ground white pepper Sweet paprika 2 pre-packaged Gnocchi packs Ingredients for salad Radicchio lettuce Iceberg lettuce 1 tablespoons mustard 2 cups sunflower oil Salt ground white pepper 1 teaspoon sugar Finely diced onions 1 teaspoon vinegar if you like Heat the oven to 300 F. Bring the salted water to a boil for the Gnocchi. Also, heat a pan with the vegetable oil in it. Season the chicken breast with pepper, salt and paprika. Put the chicken in the hot oil and roast it on all sides on medium high. Let the chicken breasts rest on a plate in the oven for 8-10 minutes. Add Gnocchi to boiling water. Cut peeled onions into quar-

ter pieces and add this to the pan where the chicken was roasted. Slightly roast the onions until they are a nice brown color. Add red wine, salt, pepper and paprika. Let this simmer for 5 minutes or so. At the end, add balsamic to taste to the sauce. To make the French dressing for the salad, whisk the mustard adding oil to it, drop by drop. If you add the oil too quickly, it will sit on top of the mustard. If that happens, you can add a bit of hot water so the oil and mustard blend better. Once all the oil is whisked in, add spices, finely diced onions and vinegar, if you like a tart taste added into the dressing. Once the Gnocchi are done, put them in a non-stick pan with melted butter. Roast them slightly and add a pinch of salt, if you didn’t add salt to the boiling water. Fresh basil will give a nice garnish to the Gnocchi. It must be fresh. Take the chicken breasts out of oven and let them rest for 2. Slice the meat in a 45 degree angle. This makes for a nice presentation. You can place the Gnocchi on one side of the plate, the chicken on the other and drizzle the sauce over the chicken. Mix the lettuces together after washing and cutting into bite size pieces. Add the dressing. Just a perfect meal for spring!

See you next week!

drive on a two-ton Mack truck between rows of hay, spiked so much tobacco my hands would be stained, and I almost drove a tractor into a creek. My dad quickly decided that 10 years old might have been a little young to handle farm machinery. That little farm girl grew up to be an Airman. Q: If you could give one piece of advice to women interested in joining the Air Force, what would it be? A: Do it. There’s no better way to be courageous, bold, strong and independent while learning a skill setting you up for an entire lifetime. There’s so much opportunity you can’t go wrong. Q: Where is home for you, and what was your reason for joining the Air Force? A: I’m from Henderson, Kentucky, … straight from the farm. I had two years of college already and was not feeling fulfilled. I didn’t have a purpose and was bored. My friend called me saying she was enjoying the Air Force and I should join. After racking up student loan debt and not being too fond of homework, I figured the Air Force would be a nice change of pace. My boyfriend at the time thought that was my weird way of trying to break up with him. I didn’t want to go in the Air Force by myself though, so I called my best friend from junior high school and asked if she’d go with me. That’s how you know you have a real friend. She said ok, and off we went to the recruiter. After 18 years, we’re both still in the Air Force. And that boy … Well, I’ve been married to him for 17 years now.

m

As the month of March continues, the 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs office continues to meet with inspiring women around the KMC to help share their stories of what Women’s History Month means to them. This week, we highlight Chief Master Sgt. Amber Mitchell, 86th Operations Group superintendent and former U.S. Air Forces in Europe’s Kisling NCO Academy commandant. Q: Who has been the most influential woman in your life? Why? A: The most influential woman in my life, besides my mom and grandmother, was Master Sgt. Liz Bolin. I was a brand new airman 1st class at my first duty station when I first met Bolin. She was a fiery senior NCO who was strong, confident, articulate, smart and knew how to influence others. She demonstrated what being an Airman was supposed to be about. She always set a good example, stood up for her Airmen, allowed us to “teach” her, and showed great patience while ensuring we had everything we needed to be successful. The life lesson I remember most from her was to stand up and be heard even when you think you have a small voice. Q: What professional goal do you hope to accomplish, and how are you working toward that goal? A: There’s not a big difference in my professional or personal goals. My goal is to have no regrets. Sometimes I miss that mark and am reminded quickly by my girls or by an Airman. But, I’m always grateful when I look back on the week or month, or even years, and know that with the big things … I wouldn’t have changed a thing. Even the mistakes I made helped me learn and become better. Q: What is something unique that most people don’t know about you? A: While many people know I’m from Kentucky because I frequently discuss my love for the bluegrass state, most probably don’t know I grew up on a farm. My nearest neighbor was over a mile away. I learned to

USAG Rheinland-Pfalz brings rodeo to KMC by Stefan Alford U.S. Army Garrison Rheinland-Pfalz Public Affairs Don’t let the hay bales, lassos, saddles and cowboy-hat wearing hosts fool you, the upcoming garrison rodeo is less a physical sport and more a mental activity. Knowledge and information are the goals, but similar to a traditional rodeo, participants will be steered through timed events at the U.S. Army Garrison Rheinland-Pfalz Total Army Sponsorship Program Rodeo from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Wednesday at Armstrong’s Club on Vogelweh Housing. “We’ll have 14 information booths set up that folks will rotate through every 15 minutes,” explained Ivor Watson, chief of the Military Personnel Division and coordinator of the event. Those booths will be staffed with experts in areas ranging from unit and spouse sponsorship to child and youth sponsorship, as well as civilian sponsorship, community reception and more.

The purpose of the sponsorship rodeo is to ensure Army leaders have the knowledge and tools necessary to create and maintain an effective sponsorship program within their units, Watson explained. “The rodeo is not intended as a training or informational event for sponsors,” Watson clarified. “Rather, it is intended for military and civilian leaders, supervisors, family readiness group leaders and unit sponsorship coordinators, to provide them information and tools to improve their organizations’ sponsorship programs.” The garrison’s sponsorship rodeo is for the Kaiserslautern and Baumholder military communities and is the result of a 2015 U.S. Army in Europe Inspector General finding that USAREUR needs to improve the effectiveness of its sponsorship program. USAG Rheinland-Pfalz took the lead in organizing the first sponsorship rodeo last July. Watson believes attendance at this year’s Rheinland-Pfalz rodeo should double the roughly 200 par-

ticipants from the first iteration, with an increased emphasis on targeting first-line supervisors, commanders at all levels, first sergeants, sergeant majors, command sergeant majors, civilian supervisors, and Unit Family Readiness support assistants, liaisons and group leaders. He emphasized that attendees should arrive no later than 11:30 a.m. to be able to rotate

through all the booths by 2:30 p.m. “It’s important because effective sponsorship contributes to unit and individual resiliency, readiness, cohesion and esprit de corps by properly integrating them into units and communities,” said Lydia Pete, Ready and Resilient Program specialist. “It contributes to a stronger team, Soldier, civilian and family.”

Army marks 65 years in Kaiserslautern by Dr. Christian Fuehrer Professor of History, Mannheim At first glance, March 20, doesn’t seem to be an important date in U.S. Army Europe’s history. However, on this day 65 years ago a predecessor of today’s U.S. Army Garrison RheinlandPfalz was activated in Kaiserslautern, marking the beginning of the U.S. Army presence in town. When thousands of service members arrived in Europe after 1950 to deter Soviet aggression, the Kaiserslautern area was earmarked to become a mainstay of the U.S. Air Force, but the city also received numerous Army units. A military hospital, several major depots and countless other units turned the Kaiserslautern area into a major Army hub in Europe. To provide community support to Army installations in Rheinland-Pfalz, the Rhine Military Post was activated in Kaiserslautern on March 20, 1951. The RMP’s area of responsibility included all Army installations in the state of

Rheinland-Pfalz, making it one of the largest military posts and an almost perfect image of today’s USAG Rheinland-Pfalz. Various reorganizations in decades to come would naturally change the area of responsibility administered by Kaiserslautern’s community support organization, at times confining it to the immediate environs of Kaiserslautern. Some of these changes even brought two community support organizations to Kaiserslautern: a local service provider in charge of Kaiserslautern, Landstuhl and Miesau and a higher headquarters for several such local organizations throughout Rheinland-Pfalz. On Dec. 1, 1952, the RMP was re-designated as Western Area Command with the Kaiserslautern District — later Kaiserslautern Subarea — providing local community support in the Kaiserslautern area. As WACOM was incorporated into the Northern Area Command in Frankfurt in 1959, all of its subareas were re-flagged as posts. By 1964, the Kaiserslautern

Post was one of 11 throughout Germany. To better reflect the fact that the Kaiserslautern Post actually covered an area several thousand square miles in size, the unit was renamed Palatinate District on July 1, 1965 and Support District Rheinland-Pfalz on July 1, 1968. SUPDIST Rheinland-Pfalz provided community support to all Army communities in Rheinland-Pfalz and operated several support activities in communities. Kaiserslautern Support Activity was activated July 1, 1970 and headquartered on Vogelweh. On July 1, 1974, all support districts were deactivated while support activities were re-flagged as U.S. Military Community Activities. The USMCA Kaiserslautern now reported to the 1st Support Brigade on Panzer Kaserne, a predecessor of today’s 21st Theater Sustainment Command. The new USMCA structures proved to be very successful in mastering the challenges of the 1970s and 1980s and endured for 17 years. All USMCAs were

replaced by a hierarchy of area support groups, base support battalions and area support teams on Oct. 1, 1991. In Kaiserslautern’s case, community support was first provided by the 29th ASG, a combined logistics and community support outfit that had been in town since 1980. On March 16, 1992, the 415th BSB was activated in Kaiserslautern to relieve the 29th ASG of its community support function. On Oct. 1, 2005, all

ASGs, BSBs and ASTs in USAREUR were re-designated as USAGs. Eight years later, on Oct. 1, 2013, USAG Kaiserslautern was finally replaced by today’s USAG Rheinland-Pfalz, a direct report garrison under Installation Management Command Europe and an organization similar to the RMP, WACOM, the Palatinate District and the SUPDIST Rheinland-Pfalz. Indeed, an organization of long history and proud tradition.

Traumatic brain injuries: Detect, don’t neglect Story and photo by Airman 1st Class Lane Plummer 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

For many, it starts with a headache. But millions of people get headaches every year, so it’s nothing out of the ordinary, right? Soon however, the headache carries over for days, weeks and sometimes months. Suddenly, it becomes apparent to these individuals that something is wrong, but they don’t report it and continue to live with a constant throbbing in their head. These can be cases of traumatic brain injuries, according to Lorrie Cappellino, Landstuhl Regional Medical Center Traumatic Brain Injury and Rehabilitation Clinic nurse educator, and reporting these possible concussions or worse is an issue with service members. “Service members are occupationally at risk,” Cappellino said. “They can

Wilbur Boulware poses for a photo March 8 at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center’s Traumatic Brain Injury and Rehabilitation Clinic. Boulware, a patient and an American Red Cross volunteer, served in the U.S. Army for 24 years before suffering from a stroke and is now a friendly face to people that walk into the clinic.

often be reluctant to admit they need treatment (for a possible TBI) because they don’t want to appear weak or just don’t understand the severity of these concussions or a mild TBI.” The TBI clinic offers evaluation, assessment, treatment and follow-up services for service members, beneficiaries and retirees who have sustained a TBI and have

ongoing symptoms. According to a statistic published by the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center in 2015, over 25,000 service members were reportedly affected by a TBI in 2014. This number has rapidly increased over the years, but this isn’t due to more incidents occurring, rather the increase in reports, according to Cappellino.

One of Cappellino’s patients, Wilbur Boulware, was affected by TBI from a stroke in 2012. Since then, he has undergone many surgeries and is still being treated at the clinic. “My treatment’s been excellent,” Boulware said. “I (am thankful) that we all have a TBI clinic because you’d be surprised about how many people suffer from a TBI.” His time at the clinic has allowed him to see the progress of people that are treated early for TBI. “I’ve seen so many people come through this clinic,” Boulware said. “By the time I see them leave, they look whole again.” Boulware was treated four years ago and is now volunteering at the clinic with the American Red Cross. His recovery has allowed him to become one of the faces that greets people when they walk into the clinic’s front doors. However, those who waited to report or failed

to identify concussions aren’t so lucky, according to Cappellino. “There are people who, after waiting so long to report a concussion, never return to their highest performance levels,” Cappellino said. “It takes the brain a lot longer to heal after waiting so long and can permanently affect vision and cognitive abilities. Those lower performance levels start to cause issues with work or home life and build.” Since March is TBI awareness month, the TBI clinic has events going on all month to engage with people and educate them on what it is, why they should report it, and how they can. Even if it only results in a slight headache, all head collisions should be reported immediately. If you think you’ve suffered a concussion in the past or have questions for the TBI clinic in regards to events, contact them at 590-5601 or 06371-9464-5601.

Germans observe numerous Easter traditions The meaning of Easter is universal, but it’s celebrated differently throughout the world. Even in the various states of Germany, people observe different traditions and customs. Little trees in backyards are decorated with Easter eggs, special Easter wreaths hang on entrance doors, and in houses, Germans put branches of forsythias, willow catkins and other trees in vases and decorate them with Easter eggs and ornaments. In some towns, Easter trees are put up, fountains are decorated with eggs, flowers and garlands, and Easter markets with selling booths and merry-go-rounds are held.

starting at 1 p.m. March 27. The Zoo in KaiserslauternSiegelbach will start the zoo season with an Easter fest featuring animal presentations, a guided tour, children’s activities, a falconer show and a worship service March 27 and 28. For children, the most famous symbol of Easter is the Easter Bunny, who is as fascinating as Santa

Claus. But while they get to see Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny stays invisible. Children believe that the Easter Bunny and his helpers dye the eggs, bring them to their homes and hide them in the house or in the backyard for them to find. The hunt for Easter eggs is the main feature of Easter for children. The Easter egg had its beginnings in the ancient past. Early philosophers gave special significance to the oval shape of elemental things, from the raindrop to the seed, and the oval Easter egg is an outgrowth of ancient pagan rites associated with the rebirth of nature. For the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans, the egg was a symbol of fertility and life. They put clay and marble eggs in graves to facilitate the dead passing into another world. In China 5,000 years ago, it was tradition to give away decorated eggs for the beginning of spring. In Finland, people claim that the universe derived from one giant egg. In Persia, eggs were

only combined with spring festivities, because during the season of the new sun, poultry started laying eggs again. It has not been explored why eggs play such a big role on Easter. A reason might be the strict prohibition by church to eat eggs during Lent. In former times, decorated eggs were given as gifts throughout the year. Later it was just done on Easter. It was not only the Easter Bunny giving away eggs, but also storks, foxes and donkeys were the bearers of eggs in mythology. In 1682, the Easter Bunny was mentioned for the first time. When the production of Easter chocolate and bunnies as well as the printing of Easter picture books and postcards began around 1850, the long-eared bunny became an Easter trademark. In Germany, Easter celebrations start the Thursday before Good Friday, called “Gruendonnerstag,” or green Thursday. The word green is not associated with the color but rather with the old German verb “grienen,” which means “to bemoan.” It’s a custom in German families to eat green vegetables that day, preferably spinach. The following day, Good Friday, is an official German holiday. For Protestants it is one of the most important religious holidays, while Roman Catholics strictly observe it as a day of fasting.

Sunday School Following

The Ramstein-Miesenbach Office of Public Order would like to remind all motorists that streets that have the blue traffic signs, which show playing children, a car and a house, are designated areas with reduced and limited traffic. The authorized maximum speed is 10 kph. Local officials noted that numerous motorists drive a lot faster. This is dangerous, especially for children who play on such streets. Motorists are asked to stick to the given speed limit and to drive at a walking pace, being extremely cautious. The following rules apply to areas with limited traffic: • Motorists must drive at a walking speed of 10 kph and pass with the utmost attention. • Pedestrians are authorized to use the full width of the street but must not interfere with traffic. • Children’s play is authorized everywhere. • Motorists may not endanger or impact pedestrians. If needed, they must wait. • Parking is only authorized in designated spaces.

Education Notes

KHS StellarXplorers team advances to national finals by Ken Robinson Kaiserslautern High School StellarXplorers team director The Kaiserslautern High School StellarXplorers team, the Space Raiders, has won an all-expensespaid trip to Colorado Springs, Colorado, to compete in the very first StellarXplorers national competition finals. Students will compete against nine other schools for the coveted title. StellarXplorers is one of two national competitions put on by the Air Force Association. Building on AFA’s stunning success of their CyberPatriot National Cyber Education Program, AFA has decided to take their science, technology, engineering and math initiative one step further with the introduction of this newly released national space competition. The StellarXplorers program and competition was designed to inspire and motivate high school students and their educators to pursue studies and careers in STEM through a challenging, space-system-design competition. Since space science inherently includes virtually every technical discipline, students learn firsthand the fundamental aspects of space system engineering, assembly, integration, test and operations. Teams are provided with computer simulations for orbit determination and propagation, computeraided system design, system performance assessment, and budgetary constraints. With nearly 20 pages of technical data, teams must be able to efficiently organize, analyze and evaluate mission data

in order to make critical decisions concerning their mission. Teams will have a six-hour block of time to make all the final decisions. For these teams, this is the ultimate test, where higher order thinking skills are competing against both time and space. The Space Raiders hope to visit both the Air

Force Academy and Schriever Air Force Base during this unique opportunity in Colorado Springs. Additionally, the team will attend the Space Foundation’s 32nd Space Symposium. For more information about StellarXplorers, visit their homepage at www.stellarxplorers.org.
