435th AGOW, AEW welcome new commander Story and photo by Senior Airman Nicole Sikorski 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


embers from the 435th Air Ground Operations Wing and 435th Air Expeditionary Wing welcomed their new commander during an assumption of command ceremony March 16 on Ramstein. Col. Andra Kniep assumed command of the 435th AGOW and 435th AEW during a ceremony that was officiated by Lt. Gen. Darryl Roberson, 3rd Air Force and 17th Expeditionary Air Force commander. Roberson welcomed Kniep and spoke about the hard work of Airmen assigned to the 435th AGOW and 435th AEW and their critical role in the Air Force mission. “She has a lot of experience both in the air and on the ground,” Roberson said. “I know that she will do a great job.” Kniep entered the Air Force in 1993 after her graduation from the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Kniep has served on 13 assignments in her Air Force career See COMMAND, Page 3

86th CES engineer named AF’s top manager After winning two Air Force-level awards in 2013, the 86th Civil Engineer Squadron is no stranger to being recognized as the best, so when another one of its members was named the best

manager in the Air Force, it probably came as no surprise to the leadership. Eric Rushing, 86th CES chief of engineering, was named the Air Force Harry P. Rietman Award (Senior Civilian Manager) winner for his work throughout 2014. “I was excited and surprised when I heard about the award,” Rushing said. “I’m

competing with people from other large bases. There are a lot of high-quality senior civilian managers out there.” The annual award honors its namesake, who served as the associate director of engineering and services from 1975 to 1985 and is known as the father of the Civil Engineering Career Program. It recognizes the

Women’s History Month

Females play important role in WWII efforts by Martha Lockwood Air Force News Service

FORT MEADE, Maryland — The Air Force’s acceptance of women into the force dates back to long before the first Women’s History Week celebration in 1978. In 1942, the U.S. Army Air Corps took the unheard-of step of forming and employing two women’s aviation units. That same year, a unit of flight nurses who had not yet quite finished their training were sent into North Africa on Christmas Day following the Allied invasion in November of that year. And the history of women — civilian and military — was forever changed.

Willingness to Serve

Originally, the idea of using women pilots was first suggested in 1930 but was considered “unfeasible,” according to information maintained at the National Museum of the Air Force in Dayton, Ohio. Then, in mid-1942, an increased need for World War II combat pilots favored the use of experienced women pilots to fly aircraft on noncombat missions. Two women’s aviation units, the Women’s Auxiliary Ferrying Squadron and the Women’s Airforce Service Pilots, were formed to ease this need. More than 1,000 women participated in these programs as civilians attached to the USAAC, flying 60 million miles of noncombat military missions. These two units were merged into a single group, the WASP program in August 1943 and broke ground for U.S. Air Force female pilots who would follow in their footsteps decades later. More than 25,000 women applied for pilot training under the WASP program; 1,830 were accepted, 1,074

were graduated and 916 (including 16 former WAFS) remained when the program was disbanded in December 1944. WASP assignments were diverse — assignments included flight training instructors, glider tow pilots, towing targets for air-to-air and antiaircraft gunnery practice, engineering test flying, ferrying aircraft and other duties. Although WASPs had the privileges of officers, they were never formally adopted into the USAAC. In November 1977, 33 years after the WASP program was disbanded, President Jimmy Carter signed a bill granting World War II veterans’ status to former WASPs.

Winged Angels

It was a slightly different story for flight nurses who were military members from the beginning. As it was with so many advances and innova-

tions resulting from World War II, the USAAC radically changed military medical care, therefore the development of air evacuation and the training of flight nurses were advanced to meet this need. After the invasion of North Africa in November 1942, the need for flight nurses exceeded the supply, and women who had not yet finished their training were called into action and sent to North Africa on Christmas Day. Finally, in February 1943, the first class of Army Nurse Corps flight nurses graduated. Unlike their stateside-stationed counterparts in WASPs, flight nurses (nicknamed “Winged Angels”) in the Army Nurse Corps served in combat. They were especially vulnerable to enemy attacks, because aircraft used for evacuation could not display their noncombatant status. These same aircraft were also used

to transport military supplies. In anticipation and preparation for almost any emergency, flight nurses were required to learn crash procedures, receive survival training and know the effects of high altitude on a vast array of pathologies. Of the nearly 1.2 million patients air evacuated throughout the war, only 46 died en route. About 500 USAAC nurses (only 17 died in combat) served as members of 31 medical air evacuation transport squadrons throughout the world. When President Harry Truman signed the National Security Act of 1947, creating the Department of Defense, the U.S. Air Force became a separate military service. At the time, a number of Women’s Army Corps members continued serving in the Army, but performed Air Force duties.

Aerospace doctors discuss future, past flight medicine Story and photo by Staff Sgt. Armando A. Schwier-Morales 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


he largest U.S. Air Forces in Europe aerospace medicine summit was held March 9 to 13 on Ramstein. More than 200 medical professionals from 19 nations met for the 30th Ramstein Aerospace Medicine Summit and NATO Science and Technology Organization Technical Course. The forum discussed everything from flying, medicine or even if the famous World War I German fighter pilot, the Red Baron, would be qualified to fly by today’s standards. “In one form or another, this unique international medical assembly has been bringing together aerospace medical professionals to share knowledge and network for 30 years,” said Dr. (Lt. Col.) Todd Huhn, U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa command surgeon aerospace and operational medicine branch chief.

Two objectives of the conference were to share knowledge and network, but the overall idea for the conference was for the well-being of Airmen — something the Red Baron’s aerospace doctors kept in mind after he was shot down. After the Red Baron decided to ignore the doctor’s advice, the fighter pilot flew and attained 23 more victories. However, it was agreed that he should have been grounded and given time to recover. “Safety is always very important for us in aerospace medicine,” Huhn said. “If we can prevent just one mishap by sharing information and getting better, it makes it worthwhile.” Topics covered during the week included: aeromedical evacuation, aviation safety, medevacing in the Arctic, G-suit advances and in-flight emergencies. In order to prevent accidents, the conference shared the experiences and knowledge of more than 53 presenters. “This conference is very good, because I don’t know other nations very well and this is giving me an opportunity to understand more about

the engineering flight,” Rushing said. Under his guidance, Rushing’s team planned, worked and managed more than 350 projects, with the engineering flight securing funding for 48 of those projects within the last 30 days of fiscal year 2014. “That can’t be done by one person,” he said. “It has to be done by a team.” Though Rushing is hesitant to take credit himself, his leadership recognizes the great work he has done for the KMC in the last year and since his arrival in 2010. “I’m sure you’ve noticed the quantity of con-

we meet the combatant commander’s objectives.” In addition to her experience as a vice commander, Kniep has earned two Distinguished Flying Crosses while flying combat missions as an A-10 Thunderbolt II fighter pilot. She was also an A-10 program manager and test pilot. Before her assignment at Moody AFB, she worked as the deputy director of domestic counterterrorism and global antiterrorism at the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense at the Pentagon, Washington, D.C. Kniep said she not only looks forward to her position in command but serving next to her Airmen. As a proud new leader of the two wings, she said she stands ready to take the AGOW and AEW to the next level.

and most recently served as the 23rd Fighter Wing vice commander at Moody Air Force Base, Georgia. Standing before her new troops, Kniep spoke of her excitement to take on her command position. “I stand before you humbled to be called your commander,” Kniep said. “It is a true honor and I don’t take it lightly.” In her new position, Kniep leads five groups and approximately 20 squadrons around the European theater. “We are the backbone of ‘Forward. Ready. Now,’” she said. “We will continue to accomplish the mission, focus on our people by providing for Airmen and their families and continue to improve and innovate as

struction and major works in the KMC these recent years,” said Lt. Col. Paul Silas, 86th CES commander. “This doesn’t just happen by accident. Eric is gifted with an amazing ability to understand and keep track of all the rules, German law, U.S. law, funding rules, contracting rules and, ultimately, laws of physics that all work together to create a safe, usable facility with the user’s specific needs included.” In 2014, Rushing and his team executed approximately 40 percent of U.S. Air Forces in Europe’s project budget, working alongside the 700th Contracting Squadron and 86th Comptroller Squadron to acquire an additional $10 million for infrastructure and qual-

ity of life improvements for the KMC. “You have to lead a team in unison to pull off numbers like that,” Silas said. The numbers and projects are even more impressive when considering civilian industry engineers work two or three mid-size projects at a time; however, Rushing manages engineers and construction managers that worked approximately nine projects per person in 2014, Silas said. “So when I saw Eric Rushing named as the 2014 Air Force civil engineer senior civilian manager of the year, was I surprised?” Silas said. “No. Now, he gets to join his fellow 86th CES winners as the Air Force’s best.”

US air advisors strengthen Albanian C2 partnership by Tech. Sgt. Daylena Ricks 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


he 435th Air Ground Operations Wing led a U.S. Air Forces in Europe command and control advisory mission March 3 to 5 at Rinas Air Base, Albania. The goal of this partnership event was to strengthen the Albanian air force’s Control and Reporting Center operations, create a greater connection with the NATO integrated air defense system and improve the relationships from both nations that foster trust and cooperation. A team of three Airmen, each having significant expertise in air-battle management, communications and data links, led the three-day air advising mission. “Every air advising mission presents its own challenges and dynamics; these can be technical, organizational or a need for internal training,” said Maj. John Sherinian, 435th Air Ground Operations Wing’s Contingency Response Group, Detachment-1, chief air advisor, air battle manager and regional affairs

strategist. “Our work with Albania’s C2 professionals provided both our countries with a more complete picture of our combined NATO interoperability and the challenges we face together as they develop their CRC operations.” The C2 experts familiarized attendees with the CRC, which broke down organization and operations, explaining how a CRC serves and coordinates with the NATO Air Operations Center. They also discussed the importance of providing data links to officers responsible for incorporating air pictures with NATO surveillance and fighter controllers. “Working with our Albanian partners is critical to what we do in USAFE and NATO,” said Maj. Christopher Potter, 603rd Air and Space Operations Center senior air defense officer. “We’ve been able to share tactics, techniques and procedures in air-defense execution, which will continue to strengthen the defensive partnerships between USAFE, Albania and all the NATO partners.” During the visit, the air advisor team also had the opportunity to

assess the Albanian air force’s current capabilities and advise on possible courses of action on data link requirements, potential training opportunities and assist with developing their own command structures. “A new bridge of communication has been established — a new bridge of sharing opinions and gathering valuable expertise,” said Albanian air force Capt. Olgert Koroveshi, C2 operations chief. “The advice provid-

ed on air C2 and NATO integrated air defense system will be used to better organize and structure our CRC and to develop appropriate training programs tailored to our needs in accordance with U.S. Air Force and NATO standards.” To conclude the event and share their nation’s history and culture, the Albanian air force hosted a tour to a local museum and castle in the hillside village of Kruje, Albania.

Simulated training hones LRMC real-world medical care by Lt. Col. Laura Lien 86th Medical Squadron Simulation and Trauma Training chief


igh fidelity manikin Martha Smith, a 48-year-old female who arrived at the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center emergency room two days ago, was admitted to determine whether she has congestive heart failure or an adverse reaction to calcium channel blocker therapy. Martha is complaining about shortness of breath, has extensive swelling in her lower extremities and a 10-year history of mild to high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Another manikin, Samuel Smith, or “Sammy,” a 5-year-old male also admitted two days ago with a primary diagnosis of dehydration and gastroenteritis, arrived in the ER suffering from nausea, vomiting and diarrhea during the previous 24 hours. His treatment began with IV fluids, antiemetics (drugs effective against vomiting and nausea) and a broad spectrum IV antibiotic. At the moment, both Martha and Sammy lay motionless, patiently awaiting the arrival of their medical providers. Although the patients actually arrived at the LRMC Simulation Center, they will be treated with real-world diligence and care by members of the LRMC Clinical Nurse Transition Program. They were met by Maj. Paul Masters and Tech. Sgt. Michael Reyes, who run a healthy patient assessment scenario culminating in a discharge to home. Martha and Sammy’s nursing staff include 2nd Lts.

TSC, community leaders build student resiliency during forum Story and photo by Ronnie Schelby 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs Leaders and professionals throughout the KMC, including those in the medical, chaplain, military and quality assurance fields, participated in a weeklong resiliency forum March 9 to 14 on Vogelweh Military Complex. Several senior leaders of the 21st Theater Sustainment Command participated by sharing their stories and experiences. Volunteers from the 21st TSC, including members of the Sergeant Morales Club, played a formative role in developing relationships with area schools and students. Sergeant Morales Club members provided leadership for Army outreach activities and devoted enormous amounts of time to student mentorship programs. The majority of events took place at the Kaiserslautern High School auditorium. “The purpose of this forum is to give our students a chance to connect to all of the various providers available in our community,” said Kirstin Hage, a psychologist at Kaiserslautern Elementary/Middle School and Kaiserslautern High School, and leading organizer of the forum. “We want our children to know that it is possible to develop resilience and overcome obstacles, no matter how difficult that

might be. This forum is shining a light on the strengths and concerns of our students.” Col. Matthew Redding, 21st TSC chief of staff, served as one of the forum’s main speakers. The chief addressed tough issues head-on. “Our country has been at war for the last 11 years,” Redding said. “To most of you, that is well over half of your life. As a child of a military family, you are presented with unique challenges and obstacles other families do not have. “Your lives change quickly; you must continually adapt to change,” he continued. “This may seem like an obstacle, but you can choose to make this one of your strengths. Adapt, be resilient and help the child next to you who is having a harder time.” Redding also discussed growing up during the Cold War, recounting the “duck and cover” exercises American children had to practice in school during the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s. Command Sgt. Maj. Rodney Rhoades, 21st TSC senior enlisted leader, described some of the daunting obstacles he encountered during his childhood. However, through strength, determination, opportunities and the help of supportive individuals who made a difference, he attained remarkable career success. “There is nothing more challenging than being raised as a military child,”

Col. Matthew Redding, 21st Theater Sustainment Command chief of staff, helps a student don military protective armor during the resiliency forum. The chief subsequently directed the student to run across the room and do pushups.

Rhoades said. “Your parents are gone when you need them, you are moving all of the time and so many other actions affect you. But when you talk about these issues and adversities, you can overcome them. Find those influential people that you trust and respect, listen to what they say and recruit them to be on your team.” Master Sgt. Michele Garner, 10th Army Air and Missile Defense Command first sergeant, delivered her own powerful story and offered some advice. Garner focused on the importance

of reaching and attaining goals. “Whatever you want to do, you can do it,” she said. “Don’t listen to those who are not on your team and do not believe in you. Know that you are strong and you can achieve anything that you desire.” Thomas Wirtz, a freshman at the high school, said attending the forum was very inspiring. “There is so much I can do with my life,” he said. “I never really considered joining the Army. This forum has opened my eyes to what I can achieve.”

Allied port ops reinforce Atlantic Resolve Courtesy of 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs RIGA, Latvia — Allied logisticians off-loaded more than 100 pieces of military equipment, including M1A2 Abrams Main Battle Tanks, M2A3 Bradley Fighting Vehicles and assorted military cargo from the vessel “Liberty Promise” March 9 at the Riga Universal Terminal docks in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve. The equipment will support 1st Armor Brigade Combat Team and 3rd Infantry Division training missions at sites across Eastern Europe.

The brigade’s training rotation, in turn, supports Operation Atlantic Resolve, a demonstration of continued NATO commitment to collective peace and security throughout the region. “The equipment from the 3rd Infantry Division and the Soldiers participating in Atlantic Resolve demonstrates our commitment to this collective security,” said Maj. Gen. John R. O’Connor, commanding general of the Kaiserslautern, Germany-based 21st Theater Sustainment Command. “Today we are here to partner, to train, to show our resolve and, on short notice, to launch

U.S. forces and cargo to demonstrate our reach, our agility and our expeditionary capabilities.” Operations reinforce NATO allies enduring commitment to collective European security. “The concept of collective security is the foundation of the NATO agreement, and we take that very seriously,” said Sharon Hudson-Dean, the Chargé d’Affaires, a.i. at the U.S. Embassy in Riga. “Doing the training exercises together, having the Soldiers here and having the equipment is all further evidence See AtlAntic, Page 11

The following year, some WACs chose to transfer to the Women’s Air Force when it finally became possible to do so. Originally, the WAFs was limited to 4,000 enlisted women and 300 female officers, all of whom were encouraged to fill a variety of ground duty roles, mostly clerical and medical. They were not to be trained as pilots, even though the USAAC had graduated the first class of female pilots in April 1943 during wartime. In 1976, when women were accepted into the Air Force on an equal basis with men, the WAF program ended, but not before many milestones were achieved and marked along the way in preparation for today’s Air Force women.

The WAFs in Evolution

The first WAF recruit was Sgt. Esther Blake who enlisted on July 8, 1948, in the first minute of the first day that regular Air Force duty was authorized for women. She had been a WAC and she transferred in from Fort McPherson, Georgia. The first recruits reported to Lackland Air Force Base, Texas, in 1948. When basic training was desegregated in the Air Force the following year, many African-American women recruits joined even though the integration of quarters and mess had not yet been achieved. At first, WAFs wore men’s uniforms with neckties. It was a look that didn’t last long and winter uni-

Kaiserslautern American forms for WAFs were modeled after flight attendants’ uniforms, using the same material as the men’s winter uniforms. The necktie was abandoned early on and was replaced with tabs on the collar. The summer uniform, a twopiece dress made of cotton-cord seersucker, didn’t fare as well. Ill-fitting, it required frequent ironing. It would be years before a suitable women’s uniform would be achieved.

Milestones Along the Way

In its 10-year lifespan, from 1951 to 1961, the 543rd Air Force Band (WAF) was served by 235 women musicians with approximately 50 members at any one time. This band, known as the WAF Band, along with the all-male Air Force Band, served as ambassadors of the Air Force simultaneously. The WAF Band marched in both of President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s inaugural parades and they played for President John F. Kennedy’s inauguration, among other concert engagements throughout the nation. The band was deactivated in 1961. Some say that it was a victim of its own success. It was during this same time period in 1956 that a WAF section was introduced into the college-level Reserve Officers’ Training Corps program, and by 1959, four universities were running ROTC WAF sections. By 1970, they had achieved a national presence. Concurrent with the expansion of the ROTC women’s cadet program,

Congress passed Public Law 90-130 in 1967, lifting grade restrictions and strength limitations on women in the military. With the end of Selective Service (the draft) in 1973, recruiting practices changed. Shortly after 1976, the separate status of WAF was abolished and women entered pilot training as military personnel for the first time. The WASPS and WAFS of World War II had come in to service as civilians with pilots’ licenses. The country’s bicentennial year also saw women entering the service academies, which had not been opened to them prior to President Gerald Ford’s administration. By 1993, women were receiving fighter pilot training and Lt. Gen. Susan J. Helms (prior known as Maj. Helms), member of the first class of the U.S. Air Force Academy to graduate women, was also the first American military woman in space as part of the Space Shuttle Endeavor team. Coming full circle, the final chapter for the WAFS and WASPS of World War II was achieved in 1977, when Carter awarded them full status as veterans complete with benefits. A fitting epilogue was added in 2010 with the awarding of the Congressional Gold Medal. Today, there are approximately 300 of the original women Air Force pilots still living.

By the Numbers

The milestones cited above are just that — the highlights of women in service to their country. Each day,

March 20, 2015 women in the Air Force distinguish themselves and honor those who have gone before them by doing the jobs that matter to many of us — performing in professional, administrative, technical and clerical positions. Women make up 19 percent of all Air Force military personnel and 30.5 percent of all civilian personnel. Of the female officers, 55 percent of the female officers are line officers, and 45 percent are non-line officers. Of the 328,423 active-duty personnel, 62,316 are women, with 712 female pilots, 259 navigators and 183 air battle managers.

Women’s History Month

Today, Women’s History Month awareness for all the armed services is initiated by the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute headquartered at Patrick Air Force Base, Florida. Among the tools and initiatives for observing this monthlong celebration of the role women have played throughout history, the institute is making a free download available of this year’s Women’s National History Project poster, “Women’s Education — Women’s Empowerment.” Empowerment of women has strengthened the services. Starting with the WASPS and WAFS of World War II, through the WAFs of the’50s and ’60s, through the acceptance and promotion of women at the service academies, each generation of women and their evolved sense of service to their country has prepared the future for generations of women seeking unlimited opportunity.

Medical Battalion conducts tactical deployment to support EFMB Story and photo by Maj. Marc Welde 421st Medical Battalion (Multifunctional) VILSEK, Germany — An early wake-up call at 4:30 a.m. Feb. 23 brought attention to Soldiers from headquarters, 421st Medical Battalion (Multifunctional), for an “alert to deploy” to conduct Expert Field Medical Badge operations in Vilsek, Germany, more than 460 kilometers from their Baumholder home. With the high operational tempo of many U.S. Army Europe combat support units, commanders seek creative solutions to maintain proficiency in their expeditionary and wartime tasks. Tasked to provide mission command and to run the 2015 Army Europe Spring Expert Field Medical Badge competition, the Baumholder, Germany-based 421st Medical Battalion took an opportunity to sharpen deployment operations tasks through a multi-model deployment in Vilsek. “It starts with the basics,” said Lt. Col. Roy Vernon, 421st Medical Battalion commander. “The Army has been focused on combat operations for the last 14 years. We have forgot-

ten a lot of the basic fundamentals of warfare. These (deployment) exercises are just what we need to reestablish the baseline to ensure we can ‘fight’ tonight.” During the exercise, the battalion conducted typical pre-deployment operations to include medical and personnel processing, legal preparations of wills and powers of attorney as well as loading all of the equipment required for an early entry element, (the portion of the battalion headquarters designated as the mission command element for the EFMB). Following an eight-hour convoy movement, the unit arrived at an Intermediate Staging Base, or ISB, in Vilsek. The site’s design replicated the ISBs found in places such as Kuwait; Mihail Kogalniceanu Air Base, Romania; and Manas, Kyrgyzstan. Though many of the Soldiers in the battalion do have combat experience with real ISB operations, there are several younger Soldiers in the unit who do not. After a nights stay at the ISB, the unit conducted a tactical sling load operations via a UH-60 Helicopter supported by the Blue Stars crew from Alpha Company third Battalion, the 158th Aviation Regiment. This was

followed by convoy operations into the operational area. It was the first time Soldiers had operated around military helicopters. “The sling load training was a huge adrenaline rush,” said Spc. Darrell Stidham, a combat medic and native of Milton, Florida. “This was my first experience with hooking equipment underneath a UH-60. The instructors

were very knowledgeable and helped prepare me for any instance where I may have to conduct this type of operation.” Sgt. Maj. Felix Infante, operations sergeant major for the 421st Medical Battalion, said how training and deployments go hand-in-hand. “We alert, we marshal and we deploy to an ISB before deploying to a combat zone,” he said. “It looks and feels just like this. We do this here, so we are ready for it when we go to the fight.” The 421st Medical Battalion will host 150 Soldiers from U.S. Army Europe and 30 additional service members from various NATO countries at the upcoming spring EFMB competition. The candidates will be given a chance to earn one of the U.S. Army’s toughest badges: the Expert Field Medical Badge. In 2014, only 19 percent of the Soldiers in the Army earned the EFMB, making the badge a distinctive mark on Soldiers’ uniforms and records. The EFMB training starts March 15 with an opening ceremony and continues with a week of standardization activities to ensure candidates are clear on the strict standards of the EFMB test. Testing begins Sunday, and the culminating event, a 12-mile foot march, is scheduled for March 27.

of how critical that collective security foundation is for the alliance.” Senior U.S. and Latvian military, political and diplomatic leaders were on hand for the arrival of the vehicles and equipment. More than 40 journalists from Latvia, the U.S. and other nations also covered the arrival of the weapons systems and gear. “It’s another visual that adds to the many experiences we’re doing together with Latvia as such a good partner,” Hudson-Dean said. “All of this together really shows that this partnership is strong and growing stronger every day.” According to participating senior officials, the logistical mission sent a powerful message. “Our message to the Latvian people, U.S. allies and partner nations is that U.S. Army Europe can and will provide prompt support as needed from the air, from the sea and from the land,” O’Connor said. “Together with Latvia and our NATO allies, we can and will meet our global security commitments.” The coordination and planning for the movement of the vehicles and equipment took logisticians months, and it required synchronization of multiple agencies and partnerships

presence is making a difference. “Simulation training provides CNTP nurses opportunities to foster critical thinking and leadership skills through simulated medical-surgical patients,” said CNTP Director Kimberly Ganous. The vision of the LRMC Simulation Center, according to Tech. Sgt. Michael Reyes, is to provide realistic and relevant joint service inter-professional medical/clinical education and training to sustain mission readiness and improve the quality of care for warfighters, veterans and beneficiaries. In line with this vision, he said the goal is that everyone who enters the simulation center leaves with greater knowledge, confidence and competence to improve patient outcomes. Future LRMC CNTP officers will complete intensive healthy adult, pediatric and infant assessments during their first week in the program and continue to hone their nursing skills with monthly simulation scenarios focused on caring for patients in all facets of health. These experiences will allow CNTP participants to practice their skills in caring for labor and delivery patients, adult and pediatric patients with illnesses, or post-surgery and end-of-life patients in a nonthreatening environment. In addition to supporting the CNTP, the simulation center provides a vehicle to meet or exceed hospital accreditation and 2015 Patient Safety requirements. These requirements include LRMC’s Level 3 Trauma certification requirement to provide a mechanism for trauma-related education for nurses involved in trauma care. The Joint Commission standard for improving competency and ensuring ongoing evaluation and the simulation center provides a realistic training platform for wartime readiness skills for Army and Air Force medical personnel.

Spiritual maintenance supports Airmen by Chaplain (Maj.) Mark B. McKellen 86th Airlift Wing chaplain A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to speak with Senior Airman Bryan Jordan from the 86th Maintenance Squadron. Jordan’s job is to inspect airframes for structural integrity. During a random inspection, he found a crack in one of the C-130J Super Hercules’ wings. The crack was not noticeable, but was found using specialized equipment. This random inspection saved the aircraft and crew from potential disaster. Just as aircraft need maintenance to keep them in the air, Airmen require spiritual maintenance to keep them focused and in the fight. The chapel has implemented a maintenance concept in an effort to better provide spiritual support to the Airmen stationed at Ramstein. The scheduled spiritual maintenance provides not only weekly worship services, but it also includes a walk-in service. The walk-in chaplain’s office is located at the Ramstein Northside Chapel and is available from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Photo by Senior Airman Damon Kasberg

Chaplain (Col.) Dwayne R. Peoples, U.S. Air Forces in Europe command chaplain, speaks during the National Prayer Service March 18 at Ramstein. Peoples focused his message on the importance of spiritual maintenance and how it impacts Airmen.

There is also an on-call duty chaplain available for after-duty hours by contacting the command post. The on-station spiritual maintenance is led by religious support teams, which are assigned an office in designated units. In January, the Ramstein Chapel moved six chaplains out of the chapels and into those designated units. The goal of each team is to make time quarterly with every Airman within each unit. However, due to manning limitations, chaplain assistants are not in the units.

The third phase of this concept is mainenance. This includes marriage, family and single retreats, and chaplain-led spiritual resiliency opportunities within the units. This spiritual maintenance concept is all about minding the mission, Airmen and mission partners. The purpose of the Ramstein Chapel is to target spiritual maintenance for the overall effectiveness of the mission, Airmen and mission partners who are stationed at Ramstein. With the ongoing high opera-

tions tempo, airframes have their limitations, just as Jordan found on the C-130. However, with the expertise of the 86th MXG, this aircraft was back in the fight. In the same way, the high operations tempo impacts Airmen. The effects may not be visible, but they are there. With the concept of spiritual maintenance, the emphasis is to get Airmen the spiritual help and support they need, repair the unseen cracks and get them back in the fight.

Customs fines Kinder Surprise egg mailers by Robert Szostek U.S. European Command Customs Public Affairs WIESBADEN, Germany — People thinking of sending Kinder Surprise chocolate eggs stateside this Easter should be aware of the U.S. Customs regulation banning these chocolates from import into the United States. “U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents will remove Kinder Surprise chocolate eggs from your baggage or any package mailed stateside,” said Mike Dean of the U.S. European Command Customs Executive Agency.

Those who ship these eggs or similar products can be fined. Dean also added that shippers have an obligation to declare items they are mailing on the customs declaration forms to avoid penalties. Kinder Surprise chocolate eggs and similar products are popular treats all over Europe. The hollow chocolate eggs come in a colorful foil wrapper and contain an oval plastic capsule with a small toy inside. The Consumer Product Safety Commission tested many of the toys and determined they present a choking hazard for young children. The Food and Drug Administration also issued an

import alert for Kinder Surprise eggs because they are a confectionery product with an imbedded nonnutritive object. According to the customs website, they have made more than 3,000 seizures of Kinder chocolate eggs among the mail facilities, commercial shipments and individual travelers entering the U.S. since 2010. However, other Kinder brand candy products that do not contain the small toy can be mailed without restriction. Contact the local U.S.military customs office for further information or visit www.cpsc.gov/cpsccpub/prerel/prhtml06/06140.html.

Ramstein students welcome peers to new home Story and photo by Senior Airman Jonathan Stefanko 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Ramstein High School students trained on how to establish and sustain peer-based programs helping support military children as part of the Student 2 Student program March 5 and 6 at Ramstein. The program teaches multiple coping techniques, which can help ease the transition of military children at a new location. “It can be a horrible feeling for these children to hear they are moving,” said Tracy Brown, Military Child Education Coalition S2S trainer. “They will have to leave friends behind along with everything they have grown to know, especially if they are going to a new country. “By teaching the S2S program, we provide those children tools, which can help ease the transition of new students by focusing on acceptance, belonging and caring,” Brown continued. “The best support for a transitioning student is from another student.” Whether they are arriving or leaving, Ramstein students aim to take care of their peers and assist them where they can. “We focus a lot of our time on our base with sponsorship,” said Chief Master Sgt. Frank Batten III, 86th Airlift Wing command chief. “Whether it is the Airman or spouse, we want them to feel welcome and what you (students) are doing as far as peer-to-peer is really great stuff. It helps us help our Airmen when we know their children are taken care of.” During the course, students and teachers participated in various activities ranging from spelling

their name with their elbow to recognizing detail changes in their outfits, which exercised team work and communication while encouraging acceptance. “Sometimes people don’t realize the background some of the new students come from, and, as S2S members, it is important for us to always keep that in mind,” said Katherina Moua, Ramstein High School student and S2S club president. “The skills we learned here have really helped open our eyes and remember how hard it is for someone to transition somewhere new.” Moua has moved seven times throughout her life with the majority being overseas. With that experi-

ence she said being involved with the S2S program has taught her how to adjust, grow and help others. “It is nice being around people who have gone through similar situations,” Moua said. “Our goal at Ramstein High School is to make sure new students feel welcomed, especially since we come from a military family. We know how it is coming in to a new environment having to adapt.” With the training complete, the Ramstein S2S team plans to create a customized campus plan here to inspire their peers to accept, support and care for other military children who are coming to their new home or leaving for their next one.

The Easter market in Sankt Wendel lures visitors with many attractions.

by Petra Lessoing 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs The city of Sankt Wendel, located in the state of Saarland, will hold its annual Easter market today through Sunday. About 80 vendors and exhibitors will present and sell a wide variety of merchandise such as Easter decorations, woodcarvings, ceramics, pottery, glass, leather and steel objects and many other arts and crafts items. “Over the years our diversified spring market turned into an insider tip for many visitors coming from all over the southwest region,” said Leonie Paqué from the Sankt Wendel office of arts and

city marketing. “We offer the melodious Easter village, a colorful Easter crown, a giant Easter egg, a petting zoo, an Easter express train, arts and crafts items and many activities for children.” The highlight of the market is the giant Easter crown sitting on top of the fountain on Marktplatz. It is made of 2,000 hand-painted eggs and surrounded by spring flowers. Delightful Easter songs can be heard throughout the Easter bunny village and around the dome. More than 100 Easter bunnies made of poplar in the Erzgebirge mountains are placed in the bunny kitchen, workshop, restaurant, kindergarten and bunny school. A local artist will present

Children have the opportunity to craft Easter presents, get their faces painted, try out pottery and take part in dancing while they make music and test their archery skills. A nostalgic merry-go-round will be set up on Schlossplatz. Walking acts will entertain visitors in the streets. The Easter Bunny will make his appearance and pass out Easter eggs. The Easter express will offer rides from 2 to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday through the city. Each night, between 5 and 7 p.m., a night watchman will make his rounds with lanterns through the streets. To provide additional Easter shopping, stores will open from 1 to 6 p.m. Sunday. “Each year, the special mix we offer at our Easter market lures many visitors from all over to our city,” Paqué said.
