or her ﬁrst stop during her ﬁrst overseas trip, Secretary of the Air Force Deborah Lee James toured Ramstein and spoke with U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa Airmen Monday. The purpose of the trip for the 23rd secretary of the Air Force was to give her a chance to learn more about USAFEAFAFRICA’s role in the region, meet Airmen in their work stations and better understand Ramstein’s many mission capabilities through face-to-face interactions.
Her visit consisted of a command mission brief, one-on-one discussions during lunch with Airmen, facility tours, a meeting with Ramstein sexual assault response coordinators, and C-17 Globemaster III and C-130J Super Hercules aeromedical evacuation static displays. She ﬁnished up with an Airmen’s call open to all Ramstein personnel. During the Airmen’s call, James spoke about her top three priorities, challenges the Air Force is facing and the way ahead for the force. She explained her three priorities were taking care

ANSBACH, Germany — After two-and-a-half months of rigorous training led by Soldiers from the 131st Military Working Dog Detachment, two former tactical dogs achieved patrol dog certiﬁcation, a task accomplished by fewer than 10 dog teams in the entire Department of the Army. Pfc. Jacob Yeager, Pfc. Nicholas Milano and their dogs completed Patrol Explosive Detector Dog certiﬁcation in less than 40 days — this after the dogs were initially trained as Tactical Explosive Detector Dogs. “Both of these dogs have done two to three deployments as a TEDD and were able to transition back into the garrison lifestyle and are still capable of learning new training techniques and becoming proﬁcient,” Milano said. Military working dogs Anuska and Leo were acquired from a TEDD program in the U.S. and then certiﬁed well See MWD, Page 3

Watch nutrition like HAWC by 2nd Lt. Lindsey Leitz Nutrition program manager March is National Nutrition Month, which begs the question, “Where do you get your nutrition information?” Advice from family, friends and colleagues, coupled with the massive amount of information found on the Internet, leaves many people in a state of nutrition information overload. The challenge stems from the fact that everyone eats, so everyone has a familiarity with food. However, many people do not truly understand the science behind nutrition. Terms like “kilo calories,” “thermic effect of food” and “ketogenesis” cloud the issue further. Most of us have not had a nutrition lesson since middle school, yet we continue to turn to each other for advice. While this seems harmless, this improper nutrition counsel can have serious health implications. Would you have your car engine repaired by your dentist? This is essentially what you are doing when you get your nutrition information from someone other than a nutrition expert, or worse, your Facebook
feed. Not only does this get confusing, it can be dangerous. Where do you begin? The natural answer is to ask a nutrition professional. Ironically, one of the biggest foundational misunderstandings is many people do not know the difference between a registered dietitian and nutritionist. In fact, there is a world of difference between the two. A registered dietician meets the following criteria: • Bachelor’s degree in nutrition/dietetics • Completes a 1,200-hour accredited, supervised internship • Passes a national registration exam • Completes continuing professional educational requirements every five years to stay current in the field A nutritionist, on the other hand, is not a standardized position and the term is not regulated. While a nutritionist might have a Ph.D. in nutrition and have been an expert in the field for decades, it is also possible that they hold no credential other than their interest. It is wise to verify their background.
If you do not have a nutrition professional in your area, the Internet is always within reach. This should be approached with caution. Publishing an all-inclusive list is not practical. However, below are a few reliable, dietitian approved websites to get you started: • Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, www. eatright.org • Choose My Plate, www.choosemyplate.gov • American Heart Association, www.heart.org • American Diabetes Association, www. diabetes.org • Human Performance Research Center, www. hprc-online.org When it comes to eating and nutrition, what comes easy to one person, does not to another. What is right for one person could be wrong for another. What is safe for one person can be downright dangerous for another. The next time you hear someone giving nutrition advice, think twice about heeding it until you have verified with a reliable, evidenced-based source. Contact the Ramstein Health and Wellness Center for your nutrition, fitness and wellness needs at 480-4292.
Women in service are ‘The Mighty’ COMMENTARY
by Senior Master Sgt. Amber Mitchell Kisling NCO Academy commandant One of my favorite movies is called “The Mighty.” It’s about an awkward boy with learning disabilities and an unmistakably large stature and his friend who is riddled with birth defects, plaguing his ability to stand and even walk on his own. The two rely heavily on each other to fill in their personality and learning gaps. They share their strengths so together they can be stronger. Maybe you have a friend like that, too. When I think of Women’s History Month, I can’t help but think of “The Mighty.” Looking back at history and all of the people who carried others on their shoulders to

Those mighty women dedicated their lives to a cause and shaped the future. Those mighty women were committed to being better tomorrow than they were yesterday. Who’s shoulders did they stand on when they needed the lift? Look around you and you’ll see. We are each given encouragement, support and strength from those around us. Not just women, but men, children, mentors, parents, teammates, bosses and subordinates. When I look to the stars at night, I stand on Sally Ride’s shoulders.

When I think about having the courage to change things, I stand on President Harry S.Truman’s shoulders. He signed the Women’s Armed Services Integration Act of 1948.

She set the stage for many other nations to follow suit and created a thirst for enlisted education the U.S. Air Force provides like no other and shows the importance of diversity in military forces around the world.

of people, balancing today’s readiness with tomorrow’s modernization and making every dollar count. “To me, taking care of people means we need to continue to recruit the right people. We need to retain the right people and shape the force by having the right people in the right ranks and specialties,” James said. “We also need to be able to grow and train leaders while encouraging diversity of thought.” James also said that by invigorating the discussion of the Air Force core values, Airmen can ensure they are taking care of each other by
having dignity and respect for all. Explaining her second and third priorities, she said since the period of sequestration, activities surrounding our readiness, like flying hours and TDYs for professional development, have slipped. “Readiness needs to be brought back up to a more reasonable level, but we still need to ensure we are adding value to every tax dollar,” she said. Some of the challenges James discussed included the continuous budget constraints and the delicate, yet complex solutions Airmen will be faced with throughout the next few years.

strings attached. They are servant leaders committed to leaving a legacy and positively impacting women. Ordinary people do extraordinary things, pushing us further beyond any measure of our imagination and stretching our minds to be better, bigger and mighty. Women continue to build our story, the saga of a dream, the legacy of character, courage and commitment. “The Mighty” closes with this: “When someone so great once was, then someone so great will always be.” This is true with the legacy you build, the dreams you share, the shoulders you lend. It is enduring. Don’t just celebrate women’s history for one month. Celebrate the mighty every day, because they’re changing your future and so are you. Lift someone up on your shoulders so you can pay it forward to those who will come tomorrow and the days that follow.
In order to sustain readiness and build technological superiority, James said the Air Force is reducing manpower and force structure, retiring outdated aircraft, such as the A-10 Thunderbolt II, the U-2 Dragon Lady and the MQ-1 Predator, as well as slowing the growth of military pay. “We need to invest the money we save from these reductions and use it for nearterm readiness,” she said. “We will be using these savings to invest in flying hours, training and modernization platforms like the (long range strike) bomber and space programs. “We will also be force shaping to create a smaller Air Force,” James continued. “We
Page 3 hope to have as many people as possible separate voluntary, but we will be involuntary separating Airmen if needed. We project there will be two boards throughout the next 15 months or so, and if someone goes through the first board, they will not have to go through a second time.” The last subject James elaborated on was the reduction of compensation. “The proposal going forward in fiscal year 2015 will slow the growth in military compensation,” she said. “Instead of a 2 percent pay raise, there will be a 1 percent, so the pay still goes up, just not as much.” The secretary also asked
Airmen to ensure they are constantly reviewing and updating their records, communicating with their supervisors and seeking information from their leaders as things continue to change. Airmen should also be prepared for their future, wherever it may take them. James has 30 years of senior homeland and national security experience in the federal government and the private sector. Prior to her current position, she served as president of Science Applications International Corporation’s Technical and Engineering Sector, where she was responsible for 8,700 employees and more than $2 billion in revenue.

As appreciation for their success, both dog handlers will be attending the 2014 Police and Military Working Dog Conference and Vendor Show in Nashville, Tenn. “Our program manager awarded us with the opportunity to attend this conference because of the work and time we put into training these dogs,” Milano said. The future for these high performing K-9s is already mapped out by their caretakers. “Anuska is currently working with Private 1st Class Yeager and will be attending a certification as a team in March,” Milano said. “Leo is working with another handler and will be attending the same certification in March as a team.” Both Yeager and Milano said they were grateful to be part of record-breaking dog teams. “This was a great experience for me,” Milano said. “We were able to do something that not many handlers get the opportunity to do.”

16th SB trains allied soldiers in Poland Story and photo by 1st Lt. Henry Chan 16th Sustainment Brigade, 21st Theater Sustainment Command OPOLE, Poland — It was a brisk morning at the Opole garrison where U.S. Soldiers stepped into a redbricked building and shook hands with Polish Land Forces officers saying, “Dzień Dobry,” meaning, “good morning,” in Polish. Three U.S. Army logisticians from the 16th Sustainment Brigade, 21st Theater Sustainment Command visited the Polish Land Forces 10th Logistics Brigade, or BLog, to train Transport Support Movement Team soldiers on logistical operations Feb. 24 to 28. The 10th BLog will deploy under the NATO International Security Assistance Forces in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. Their mission revolves around retrograde operations for Polish Land Forces military supplies. “We are a specific unit that has supported troops in Afghanistan, Chad, Mali, Iraq and Kosovo with all types of movement — air, rail, wheeled and sea transport. Our task in Afghanistan this time is to send equipment back to Poland,” said Polish Land Forces Lt. Col. Wojciech Grygbowski,
10th BLog TSMT commander. U.S. Army soldiers Chief Warrant Officer 3 Sulaimen Bah, supply system technician, Sgt. 1st Class Charles Odom, senior wheeled vehicle mechanic, and 1st Lt. Henry Chan conducted classes teaching the Polish troops cargo preparation techniques, mechanical inspections, hazardous material documentation, U.S. Customs inspections, and aerial and ground transportation operations. In general, the mission of retrograde operations is to displace logistical supplies to a secure location to reorganize and redistribute. Such operations have increased during the past two years of the Afghan war to recover and reorganize U.S. government property in the battlefield. The three American Soldiers deployed to Afghanistan in 2012 and 2013 under the CENTCOM Materiel Recovery Element. The Soldiers were executed retrograde operations in Afghanistan. “This is great cooperation and very important for us to maintain close cooperation with U.S. transport Soldiers,” Grzybowski said. “We need to broaden our knowledge in these operations. Our logistics operations are similar, but we have different procedures.” One of the American instructors who helped train Grzybowski’s unit

was Bah, who served as an accountable officer at a retrograde sort yard in Kandahar, Afghanistan. He operated a 90-person retro-sort facility that received, sorted and shipped U.S. government equipment recovered from the southern portion of Afghanistan. “It was successful training. (The Polish troops) will most likely save time on researching and planning for these operations,” Bah said. “This type of training will also cut down on any potential damage to our aircrafts and vehicles from improper (cargo preparation) techniques.”
Polish Land Forces Capt. Bartek Jasiulewicz, 10th BLog TSMT operations officer, is a transportation officer who has worked extensively with aerial cargo delivery and U.S. Air Force cargo standards. “It is important for us to develop these procedures together as well as we have a lot of current and future joint operations,” Jasiulewicz said. Both the 16th SB and the 10th BLog are planning future partnership training after the Polish Soldiers’ return from retrograde operations in Afghanistan.

Airmen destroy BLAC ICE by Sara Pavich 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs
he 435th Contingency Response Group recently joined security forces from Turkey, Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany for a training course on tactical leadership. Battlefield Leaders Assaulter Course, Integrated Combat Essentials — or BLAC ICE course — was conducted March 3 through March 13 on Ramstein and was designed to teach security forces members advanced tactics and shooting skills for use in the event of a base security breach. Trainees learned skills such as advanced tactics and shooting. The training also focused on leadership. In the final days of the course, trainees completed simulated missions intended to exercise all skills and tactics taught during the program. “The overarching goal is ... to teach (Airmen) tactical leadership,” said Tech. Sgt. Jared Norwood, 435th Security Forces Squadron Ground Combat Readiness Training Center instructor. “They need to know how to make a decision on the fly when the situation is stressful.” Security forces NCOs from bases across Europe attended the training. Tech. Sgt. Jarvis Thompson, 703rd Munitions Support Squadron NCOIC of police services on Volkel Air Base in the Netherlands, was selected by his leaders to participate in the course. Thompson said the training encompassed all aspects of a security breach situation and introduced new and useful skills. “As cops, we usually train until the hostilities are over and then we end the exercise. But here, you get a little bit extra,” he said. “They’ll put out mannequins that are squirting blood and you have to be quick on your feet and think, ‘What can I do to help save this guy’s life?’ It’s really great training.” The presence of representatives from other nations enabled course instructors to share knowledge and experiences to improve future training. Master Sgt. Christoph Czaja, German air force security squadron security forces member at Büchel Air Base, attended the course in order to learn techniques he can utilize when training German forces at his home unit. “The instructors are very well trained, and they showed us a lot of new things,” Czaja said. “There are things that are good from our side and things that are good from this side. So if we put it all together, we’ll be great.” Czaja said training with forces of other nations is key to becoming successful partners in protecting a base. “I think the best skills come from training together,” Czaja said. “The American guys show us everything they do with the equipment they have, so we can hopefully take that and do the same training at our home bases.” Together, trainees learned leadership skills that will improve U.S. security forces’ ability to work with host nation forces. Strong leadership is the most important skill the course teaches, Norwood said. “Tactics are always changing and shooting just takes practice, but leadership needs to be knowl-

Human simulators featured at international medical summit Story and photo by Tech. Sgt. James M. Hodgman U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa Public Affairs More than 170 members of the international medical community from 16 nations filled Ramstein’s Hercules Theater March 10 for the first day of the 29th Ramstein Aerospace Medicine Summit and NATO Science and Technology Organization Technical Course. The annual summit is a joint effort between the U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa Surgeon General’s office and NATO to share information in the aerospace medical world and build relationships with international partners. On the first day of the conference attendees learned about emerging technology, medical evacuation on the African continent and advances in simulation training. “Using simulators really enhances our training, because we use various scenario-based events to train and develop skilled, competent medical professionals,” said Carlos G. Rodriguez, 86th Medical Group simu-
lation coordinator. Rodriguez said utilizing human simulators, rather than live patients, has several benefits. “By using the simulators, we are able to mimic everything a human casualty or sick patient may experience,” he said. “The simulators can bleed, blink, talk, breathe, move and have a pulse.” Medical technicians can practice administering intravenous fluids, airway intubation procedures, electrocardiogram monitoring and defibrillation, Rodriguez said. Christopher Williams, 86th MDG simulator operator, said the simulators provide a realistic training environment. Previously, students referred to instructors to learn vital information like the patient’s pulse rate or if the patient was breathing. Now, students assess the simulators, which provide realistic signs and symptoms. As a result, the number of instructor injects has greatly been reduced, Williams said. “This leads to the most realistic training possible, because when you’re downrange, you have to make

The Defense Travel Management Office is conducting an Overseas Housing Allowance Utility and Move-in expense survey until March 31. The survey is intended to validate and adjust the amount of compensation service members are receiving from OHA to live in privately leased or rented residential housing. All service members, regardless of service affiliation, who reside in off-post housing are highly encouraged to complete the survey in order to accurately gauge the amount of OHA service members are receiving. This survey is critical for ensuring OHA rates are properly set at overseas locations and directly affects the amount of housing allowance each service member is paid. Every year the Defense Travel Management Office conducts these types of surveys to identify how much service members have spent in the previous year for utilities and move-in expenses. Additionally, if the service member is not available, spouses are authorized to take the survey. To take the survey, visit Defense Travel Management Office’s website at www. defensetravel.dod.mil/site/oha-util-mar.cfm and click on the “Take the Survey” button.
MIHAIL KOGALNICEANU AIR BASE, Romania — If a penny saved is a penny earned, a team of fiscally sound Soldiers from the 21st Theater Sustainment Command’s 16th Sustainment Brigade deliver daily dividends to dozens of MK denizens. The Soldiers belong to the 106th Financial Management Support Unit, a unique organization headquartered in Baumholder and comprised of three company-sized detachments scattered across the 21st TSC’s expansive central European footprint. Capt. Matt Garvin, 16th Special Troops Battalion operations officer and finance specialist who only recently rotated out of command, played a key role in the organizational effort. The Harrisburg, Pa., native identified key functions of follow-on finance forces. Those financial forces arrived in early February as part of “Sustainment Task Force 16” and promptly occupied a caged office area formerly employed as an arms room. The team’s five personnel provide full-spectrum financial service support to military members of all services and components, especially Marines, who represent an outsized share of MK military personnel due to their dynamic regional training and partnership role. Second Lt. Rachel Kim, dispersing agent with the 106th permanently stationed in Vicenza, Italy, said the financial forces facilitate casual pay, pay inquires, check-cashing and currency exchange. The New York City native described casual pay as the most popular service and among the most beneficial. Military personnel serving in an operational environment can

take allotments of up to $200 per month in casual pay, which differs from bank, commercial or automatic teller withdrawals in that “it’s done through the military payment system rather than your financial institution,” she said. Casual pay and other transactions accomplished through military financial services offer personnel and even their vendors — most notably Army and Air Force Exchange Service and Morale, Welfare and Recreation — inherent advantages. “Providing financial services on post is more secure not only for the service members but for AAFES and vendors as well,” she said. “It mitigates a lot of security risks — identity theft, loss of money, losing your card, etc.” See finance, Page 10

irmen of the 786th Civil Engineer Squadron conducted their Prime Base Engineer Emergency Force training that permitted them to hone their skills and improve combat readiness for deployed operations. The once-a-month training allowed Airmen to refresh and enhance their capabilities as well as to work together with other units to prepare them to work alongside other branches of service in a deployed environment.

“It’s good training that prepares us for a variety of different operations,” said Senior Airman Jared Jones, 786th CES electrical power production technician. “It makes me feel more confident and a lot safer knowing we’d be ready for anything should the situation call for it.” During the training, members gathered in small groups and went through different stations to learn weapons handling, defensive fighting positions, security activities and emergency engineering assistance to familiarize themselves with the basics of each section. “It allows them to get from behind the desk and receive hands-on training they wouldn’t normally get from computer-based training,” said Master Sgt. Edward Jones, 786th CES expeditionary engineering superintendent. “This training is only going to benefit us in the long run.” The Airmen had to complete a series of tasks in each section before moving to the next portion of the training. The Airmen agreed the training gives them a broader perspective of their mission and gives them the heads-

AF continues force management programs WASHINGTON — Air Force leaders announced a resumption of all force management programs March 15 following a recently discussed strategic pause. “After providing senior leadership a chance to evaluate the programs and assess our early progress, we are ready to resume immediate processing of voluntary applications in most categories and begin notifying Airmen of their status,” said Lt. Gen. Sam Cox, Air Force deputy chief of staff for manpower, personnel and services. “We expect to receive final approval authorities early next week for a select few categories, like rated and health professions, at which point we will be actively processing all voluntary
applications.” Notifications to Airmen could start as early as next week, the general added. Cox also confirmed previously announced force management boards would proceed as currently scheduled. The eligible populations for those boards will remain the same with the exception of a small group of about 500 Airmen who will no longer be eligible for the current voluntary or involuntary programs. Those individuals will be personally notified of their eligibility status by the Air Force Personnel Center. “Resuming the current programs on the previously announced schedules and under the same basic crite-

One innovative program minimizes the physical cash flow on bases and further mitigates financial risk. The Eagle cash card program, sponsored by the Department of Defense and operated by the Federal Reserve Bank in Boston, provides deployed personnel a convenient means of conducting routine financial transactions without carrying large amounts of money or disclosing personal account information. The card functions like a conventional debit card, expediting purchases through such base vendors as the local AAFES and MWR facilities without recourse to private banking or credit institutions. “The Eagle cash card eliminates all interface with the banks — there’s no financial information transmitted when the Soldier uses the card,” Garvin said. “So, it virtually eliminates the risk of identity theft or financial fraud.” Financial forces plan to unveil the program and establish vending kiosks locally in mid-tolate March, Kim said. “It’s a very secure means of making payments without using cash,” she said. “It’s linked directly to your account, so there are no transaction fees; any vendor that accepts it allows you to make payments immediately and conveniently.” Spc. Kevin Joslyn, a pay analyst with the 106th, noted the program already pays dividends in developed theaters like Afghanistan and Kuwait. The Operation Iraqi Freedom veteran helped administer the program during his rotation. “It was very effective for minimizing cash on the battlefield,” Joslyn said. “It was especially handy at the smaller bases where you didn’t have access to an ATM. Keeping cash off the battlefield is very important; it’s easy to lose and it can wind up in the hands of the enemy. The lesser the cash flow, the lesser the chance it will wind up in the hands of the enemy and even fund weapons that attack Americans.” The finance team’s broader goal, Kim said, “is to maximize security, comfort and convenience for the service members. We want to provide anything that makes it easier to supply that extra level of support to everyone, whether transiting
ria means minimal changes for our Airmen,” Cox said. One item assessed during the pause was the pace of the programs and whether or not the Air Force could achieve required reductions on the original schedule. The analysis revealed the need to include a second round of programs in 2015. “Airmen who were eligible for programs during the first round in 2014 will not be eligible for the retention boards in 2015, unless they have specific negative quality force indicators,” Cox said. Ensuring well-performing Airmen are not subject to multiple involuntary programs is key, the general said. Details on the nature and timing of
personnel or permanent party.” Their efforts ideally make military personnel better custodians not only of their own money but government resources as well, Kim said. “The bottom line is that you don’t want to unnecessarily subject taxpayer funds to potential fraud,” she said. As awareness of the availability of financial services reached the barracks, service members serving at MK moved swiftly to leverage the resource. “We’ve processed about 150 casual pays and close to $20,000,” Kim said. “We’ve processed around 50 pay inquiries in the last 11 days. I can only expect it will increase as the Soldiers become more familiar with it.” “After they realized we were here it started to get crazy,” Bazan added with a smile. “We have a point of contact with every branch, and they all started coming in.” Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines all appeared in the arms-room-turned-financialnexus, the latter in numbers commensurate with their larger enduring population. “It was hard for some of the Marines to get to the ATM, so we’ve been seeing them the most,” Bazan said. The versatility and resourcefulness of the financial services team highlight the innovative spirit that yielded high returns from the new MK Passenger Transit Center to the life support facilities on the other side of the compound. The finance officers, analysts, agents and specialists serving in key operational as well as technical roles across Sustainment Task Force 16 ensure transiting and relatively “permanent” personnel alike remain both mission-ready and fiscally sound. “You’re always looking for ways to improve your foxhole, to improve efficiency and improve the quality of life for the personnel you’re supporting,” Garvin said. “We identified some gaps and some places we could make a difference. As a fellow finance professional, it was rewarding to witness the impact our capabilities had on the operation. I think we’ve done everything well to facilitate mission success as well as help improve quality-of-life for our personnel.”
the second round of programs will be announced in the coming weeks. The general continues to encourage eligible officers and enlisted Airmen to apply for the Temporary Early Retirement Authority and Voluntary Separation Pay programs. The current TERA application window remains open until Wednesday and the VSP application window is open until May 1.

The simulators are also used for base readiness and masscasualty exercises. Ramstein now has nine simulators at a cost of more than $400,000, and the capability they provide is worth every cent, Williams said. “You could probably spend up to $80,000 on one of our simulators, but if you look at the lives saved, it’s well worth it,” he said. The Aerospace Medicine Summit and NATO STO Technical Course ended March 14.

Story and photo by Staff Sgt. Alexander A. Burnett 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs
Soldier who recently graduated from Advanced Individual Training touches down in an unfamiliar land to report to his first duty station. As he deplanes, he has very little knowledge of what to expect, who will greet him or where he will go. Just before he reaches for his bags, a “First in Support” Soldier says, “Welcome to Germany.” The 21st Theater Sustainment Command’s 1st Human Resources Sustainment Center manages the U.S. Army Europe Ramstein Gateway Reception Center on Ramstein, and they encounter stories like this one multiple times per week. The 1st HRSC assumed responsibility of the gateway mission Feb. 24 and manages Soldiers arriving to Europe on multiple flights each week. For Soldiers permanently assigned to Germany, they greet the Soldier, review their orders and arrange travel to their assigned area if necessary. If the Soldier is assigned to a unit erroneously or if the unit is already overstrength, the HRSC will divert them to another unit, said Staff Sgt. Makeda N. Moss, human resources NCO assigned to the 1st HRSC gateway mission. “When the Soldier gets here, we greet them and let them know that we will be taking care of them while they are in the passenger terminal,” Moss said. “Once they have their
bags and we check all their paperwork, we will coordinate their onward movement. If the Soldier’s sponsor is there, we release the Soldier into their care.” If a Soldier arrives after the scheduled bus transportation has departed, the 1st HRSC ensures the Soldier has a place to stay for the night. “Some of these Soldiers arrive late in the evening after all of our scheduled transportation has departed,” said Spc. Cesor D. Silva, human resources specialist assigned to the 1st HRSC gateway mission. “If this happens, we make sure they get a hotel room here on Ramstein Air Base and know what they need to do the next day. This is a very important mission to me because we are the first people to meet and take care of these Soldiers as they arrive into Europe.” On flight days, meaning the days with scheduled flights arriving on Ramstein, the five Soldiers from the 1st HRSC can process more than 100 incoming Soldiers and family members. These incoming personnel include Soldiers returning from emergency leave, those being medically evacuated from other countries and those permanently assigned to Germany. Regardless of their reason for passing through the gateway, the Soldiers from the HRSC are proud to be of service, Moss said. “This is an important mission for each of us working in the gateway,” he said. “We want to take the absolute best care of every Soldier arriving in Europe no matter what their reason for being here is. I know my Soldiers, and I will do an outstanding job in this mission.”

by Airman 1st Class Jordan Castelan 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Members of the 86th Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron conducted a training opportunity March 6 while flying over Germany in a C-130J Super Hercules belonging to the 37th Airlift Squadron. This training opportunity tested flight nurses and aeromedical evacuation technicians with varying scenarios that can be faced by aircrew during a mission. Challenges included a simulation to restrain a noncompliant and suicidal passenger as well as performing potentially lifesaving operations on lifelike training dummies.

March 21, 2014 music, from Page 17 there were four slots. Everybody else who plays saxophone wasn’t going to continue with a saxophone education. I was one of the lucky four. I made it into the one slot in ENA (Escuela Nacional de Arte), the National School of Arts.” Less than a year into his education at ENA, Esteban-Nunez and his mother emigrated. “The simple part is that she got married and we moved, but it was quite complicated,” he said. “There was a lot of paperwork that needed to be done and there was a lot of money that needed to be paid to the state of Cuba.” He was close to the age for military service conscription. However, the Cuban government will sign men up for service early if they are about to leave the country to
Kaiserslautern American prevent them from going, he said. “They came to sign me up. My grandma said I wasn’t at home even though I was,” Esteban-Nunez said. “I was leaving the next week. I had everything in order and ready to go and they came to put my name on the list. That was a close call. I almost didn’t make it out.” Once he arrived in America, he started his new life in Denver. He brought more than enough credits with him from Cuba to graduate at an American high school, but he still didn’t speak English. So he completed school with his age group, concentrating on music and polishing his English for college. “It was good that I did it, but it wasn’t even close to where it needed to be,” Esteban-Nunez said about his English. “When I got to college, I got my butt kicked. I had to do extra study
hours in every class that was not music related because it was very, very hard.” After studying jazz for a year at Loyola University, New Orleans, Esteban-Nunez decided to return to Denver and complete his bachelor’s at the University of Denver. At this point, Esteban-Nunez was forced to think about how to make a living as a musician for the first time in his life, and a military career was not his first thought. “I couldn’t picture the military and the arts,” he said. “I just couldn’t see them lining up. Also my prejudices from where I came from — the military where I lived and where I was growing up — I never thought of them as artists or musicians or them having a band.” But after doing a lot of research and talking to several Air Force band musicians, Esteban-Nunez decided it was a good fit for him.
Page 23 He said he feels music plays an important role in opening the doors of communication, and his Cuban background gives him special insight into how powerful music can be as a tool for the Air Force. Esteban-Nunez gave the example of his experience in Russia to demonstrate this point. “I know they have the same system that I grew up in. So I know I am meeting these people who have never had an opportunity to leave and that the only image they’ve had of the United States of America is whatever has been put on television by the government,” he said. “Then here we come in the same uniform, get on stage, make them smile, make them clap, make them happy. Every perception they’ve had of what we stand for just hits a wall where the reality of what they are seeing is not the one they’ve been told.”

Fluoride: Why is it so important in our daily oral hygiene? by Capt. Wah-Yung Tsang General dentist What is fluoride and what are its benefits? Fluoride is a natural element that strengthens tooth enamel to become more resistant to cavities, and it helps repair or re-harden enamel in order to arrest the early cavities. If people drink optimally fluoridated water from birth, studies show children will have 65 percent fewer cavities and 90 percent fewer tooth extractions. As adults, they will have 40 to 50 percent fewer decayed, missing or filled teeth.
How was fluoride discovered?
Fluoride was first discovered in 1901 in Colorado Springs by Dr. Frederick McKay. He found that 90 percent of Colorado Springs natives had grotesque “Colorado brown stains” on their teeth due to the high levels of naturally occurring fluoride in the drinking water. On the other hand, their teeth were surprisingly and inexplicably resistant to decay. Ever since his findings were validated, fluoride has been confirmed as dental science’s main weapon
A youth and adult wrestling invitational will be held at the Miesau Fitness Center. This is a great opportunity to show off your freestyle skills or gain new skills and experience. Trophies will be awarded for first and second place for each weight division within the adult categories. Open to youth, ages 10 to 14, and adults, ages 18 and older. A youth coaches meeting will take place at 8 a.m.; youth start time will be at 9 a.m.; an adult coaches meeting will be held at 10:30 a.m.; weigh-ins will take place from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.; adult start time is at 11 a.m. Entry fee is $10 for adults and free for youth. Spectator entry fee costs $3 for ages 12 and older and free for ages 12 and under. Adult participants must register through Adult Sports and Fitness by calling 493-2088 or 06313406-2088. Youth participants must register by March 27 through CYS Services Youth Sports by calling 4868375 or 06372-86-8375.
Units wishing to participate in unitlevel soccer must sign up by March 28. There will be a coaches meeting at 6 p.m. April 2 at the Rhine Ordnance Barracks Fitness Center, Bldg. 172.

in the battle against tooth decay. And don’t worry about those brown stains. Optimally fluoridated water today has significantly lower fluoride levels than what was found naturally in Colorado Springs water.
Where is fluoride found?
Fluoride is found in both topical and systemic forms. Topical fluoride is fluoride that is applied directly to the tooth surface (i.e., gels or varnishes). It is found in dental offices and also most over-thecounter toothpastes. Topical fluoride strengthens the tooth and, in some cases, helps reverse the early cavity. Systemic fluoride is the fluoride introduced through dietary means. These include some food and drink sources, such as dietary supplements, foods (canned sardines with bones, fish without bones, chicken, etc.), soft drinks, juices, bottled waters, tea and tap water in certain U.S. zip codes. Systemic fluoride makes developing teeth stronger and lingers in the saliva to strengthen teeth already in the mouth.

A B-24 Memorial Push-Up challenge will take place from 3 to 5 p.m. March 28 at the Ramstein Southside Fitness Center annex.

For more information, visit kaiserslautern.armymwr.com.
What is the optimal level of fluoride?
Most children in the U.S. get fluoride from tap water and toothpaste. In the KMC, only the water on Ramstein Air Base is optimally fluoridated. When water is fluoridated, it is adjusted to be at safe levels for brushing your teeth, cooking and drinking. As a rule of thumb, a child who has not learned to spit should only use a rice size smear of toothpaste. Do not rinse after brushing teeth. This allows the fluoride to coat the surface of the teeth. Do not take a fluoride supplement if you are already getting fluoride from your tap water. If you buy bottled water, look for one that is optimally fluoridated. A 1- to 2-year-old child has to swallow almost two ounces of fluoride toothpaste (about 2 tablespoons), drink a third of a bottle of fluoride mouth rinse or take up to 50 tablets of fluoride supplement to reach a toxic dose. If this should happen, have the child drink milk and contact emergency personnel. Do not swallow large amounts of toothpaste and keep toothpaste out of reach of young children. For questions, contact the 86th Dental Squadron at 479-2210 or 06371-46-2210.
