AGOW refines new mission skillset by Staff Sgt. Kris Levasseur 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs CAMPIA TURZII, Romania — Airmen from the 435th Air Ground Operations Wing departed March 10 from Ramstein for what seemed like any other training mission; how-

ever, this mission, known as Dacian Warhawk, is unlike any other in which they have participated. During the bilateral mission at Campia Turzii, Romania, the 435th AGOW was afforded the opportunity to execute four of their distinct mission sets, which makes the wing unlike any other. These mission

sets include expeditionary airfields on demand, multi-theater sustainment and support, joint airpower integration and building partnership capacity. Prior to Dacian Warhawk, these capabilities were executed individually as the wing’s groups performed their core missions. Dacian Warhawk became a way for the AGOW units

Senior Airman David Vogt, 1st Combat Communications Squadron radio frequency transmission technician, ensures proper connection for the 435th Air Ground Operations Wing March 16 at Campia Turzii, Romania. The 435th AGOW participated in Dacian Warhawk, which featured U.S. and Romanian airmen working side-by-side to establish a base and conduct ground and air operations with NATO partners.

to come together and begin forming a plan to streamline these capabilities efficiently. Beyond incorporating the majority of the AGOW mission sets, Dacian Warhawk also tested one of the wing’s expeditionary capabilities in a new way. When providing expeditionary support, the 435th AGOW travels to austere locations to establish an air base, or airfield, so aircraft can safely land and deliver follow-on capabilities. The mission is usually shortterm and the wing hands over control to the operational forces on arrival. However, due to the nature of Dacian Warhawk, the support mission continued throughout the nearly three-weeklong event. Their goal is to be able to perform these mission sets as turn-key operations to provide the best possible operational support to fighter units. “We have a tremendous amount of capabilities within the 435th AGOW, within the 435th Air and Space Communications Group, 4th Air Support Operations Group and the 435th Contingency Response Group, but we’ve never operated like this before,” said Col. Steven Edwards, 435th Contingency Response Group See AGOW, Page 2

No mission pause with Paws Abroad When military commitments arise, it can be stressful making sure personal responsibilities are taken care of. When it comes to four-legged family members,

Though they may have an obligation to their country, the affiliates of the non-profit organization Paws Abroad, said they also have an obligation to their pets. “I knew the military lifestyle would be challenging when I joined and brought my dog Keira with me,” said Capt. Annaleis Hunter,

commander. “The Dacian Warhawk mission is providing us an opportunity to expand the capabilities of the 435th AGOW and work through our current procedures and establish new procedures to be able to support this type of mission in the future.” Expanding the capabilities of the wing requires some units to operate in ways they never have, such as security forces personnel providing continuous defense of the base and assets, but the AGOW was prepared. Though the 435th AGOW Airmen have never operated in this manner, they have been preparing for this type of mission for quite some time. According to Capt. Craig Towlson, 435th AGOW chief of wing plans and programs, Dacian Warhawk is the culmination of approximately one year of brainstorming and six months of planning. “Through internal planning and guidance from the wing commander, we developed a concept to first bring the wing together, which started as a table-top exercise in October 2013,” Towlson said. “With the three groups being opera-

appy Friday, team Ramstein! I’m sorry I haven’t given you any updates lately, but out-processing for retirement has kept me really busy. Luckily, I haven’t just been chasing my tail (or nub in my case). The Ramstein Airman & Family Readiness Center has helped me get prepared for civilian life a lot. The Transition Goals, Plans,

tionally successful on their own, we wanted to achieve success as one organization in order to provide our combatant commander an option no other wing can provide. Built around Dacian Warhawk 2015, the 52nd Fighter Wing’s flying training deployment, we planned a proof-of-concept training mission to capture the AGOW’s capabilities in support of fighter operations.” Because 435th AGOW leaders saw the need to actively exercise the wing’s full capabilities to set up and maintain airfield and communications operations for short-term missions, they also needed a way to plan and evaluate their efforts. “The wing plans and programs office was set up to track and plan current and future operations like Dacian Warhawk,” Towlson said. “We leverage the expertise within each group and squadron to bring the wing together, eliminating redundancies of our capabilities across the wing. Being on the ground here in Romania will help us refine our proof-of-concept and allow us to provide direct support to fighter squadrons in the future.”

Preventing online exploitation of children by Staff Sgt. Ryan Crane U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa Public Affairs Child sex crimes and online exploitation of children are perpetual problems throughout society and in the military, there are no exceptions. As a result, these crimes are routinely investigated by the Air Force Office of Special Investigations in cooperation with Internet Crimes Against Children Task Forces located in the vicinity of an Air Force base. Although ICAC Task Force investigates crimes throughout the United States, the corporation is not only limited to stateside locations. “AFOSI’s 5th Field Investigations Region supports U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa commanders across the AFOSI criminal, fraud and counterintelligence mission set,� said Col. James L. Hudson, 5th FIR commander. “Our involvement with the Department of Justice’s Internet Crimes Against Children program is specifically designed to identify and investigate Air Force personnel worldwide who target or prey on children through the Internet.� The ICAC program was developed in response to the increasing number of children and teenagers using the Internet and other technology, the proliferation of child sexual abuse images available electronically and the heightened online activity by predators seeking unsupervised contact with potential underage victims. It’s made up of a network of 61 coordinated task forces, which represent more than 3,500 federal, state and local law enforcement and prosecutorial agencies.

These agencies engage in investigations, forensic examinations and criminal prosecutions, which help state and local agencies develop effective, sustainable responses to online child victimization, including responses where military members are stationed overseas. “The Uniform Code of Military Justice holds service members to standards of conduct under U.S. law regardless of host nation laws or the location of the service member,â€? said Maj. Dylan Williams, 3rd Air Force deputy staff judge advocate. “Further, U.S. federal laws make it a crime for any U.S. citizen to travel internationally for the purpose of engaging in sexual activity with a minor or to use the Internet for the purposes of sexual exploitation of a minor.â€? If convicted, Airmen could be subjected to several punishments to include confinement, reduction in rank, forfeiture of pay and allowances and punitive discharge. Investigating and prosecuting sex offenders is not enough to resolve the problem of online child sexual exploitation — it also requires educating parents and youths about the potential dangers of online activity. Here are several tips for parents to ensure their child does not fall victim to online sexual exploitation: • Parents should pay attention to their child’s online activity. Most children spend a significant amount of time online or communicating on media devices. Cybersex offenders are aware of this, therefore, they target children by befriending them and ultimately grooming them

toward engaging in sexual activity. The best method to thwart the offender is by limiting the amount of time a child spends on the computer or other media device, especially during evenings and weekends, and monitor their online activity. • Parents should periodically review their child’s computer or media devices for sexually graphic material. If a child has fallen victim to a sexual predator, they might have sexually graphic material sent to them by the offender. This is an effort by the offender to sensitize the child to sexual activity. Parents should review emails, folders, videos, images and all electronic transmissions on their child’s computer or other media devices. • Parents should take notice of any unusual phone calls to their child. While sex offenders may target children online, they will often attempt to use other forms of communication, including the phone, to engage in sexual conversations with the child. • Parents should be mindful of any packages or mail to their child from a stranger. It is not unusual for sexual predators to send gifts to further develop a relationship with the child. • Parents should watch to see if their child is using another person’s login account. It is not uncommon for sexual predators to ask children to communicate with another account to prevent parents from seeing the content. • Parents should utilize parental controls provided by service providers to limit specific content received on their computer or media device. • Parents should make

sure their child never meets anyone they met online, nor should they give out any personal information without discussing with the parent first. Additionally, it’s recommended that parents spend time with their child showing them how to use the Internet or other media devices safely. If a computer is in the household, parents should keep it in a common room with the monitor openly visible so they can observe activities. Mobile devices present greater challenges so parents should pay close attention when their child is using them. • Ultimately, the best way for parents to prevent their child from becoming a victim of online sexual exploitation is

to educate them on the dangers. For any questions or further information, reach out to a local OSI unit. In addition, resources for parents protecting their children can be found at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s website, www.missingkids.com/home. If a parent believes their child might be a victim of online sexual exploitation, they should contact OSI or Security Forces immediately. OSI units are located at most Air Force bases worldwide. If access to an on-base telephone is not possible, call toll free 1-877-246-1453 to obtain the phone number of the nearest OSI unit or email OSI at hqafosi.watch@ogn.af.mil.

Retiree office offers one-stop shopping by Airman 1st Class Larissa Greatwood 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


hen it comes to retirement, individuals can be swamped with a vast amount of information available from a variety of organizations. When closing one chapter in life and moving into the next, this information can become confusing and overwhelming. Members who are nearing retirement can rest easy knowing there is help available on the other side. The 86th Airlift Wing Retiree Activities Office is a one-stop shop to help retirees sort and receive information and assistance. The office offers forums and information fairs to keep retirees up to date on current processes and information. “Our office is designed to support any issues retirees have, to get inforPaws, from Page 1

of Paws Abroad. “She contacted us and we had a temporary foster home for the pet almost instantly. That’s how awesome our volunteers are.” It can be difficult and expensive for military members to find someone to take care of their pet when it comes to temporary duty assignments and deployments. Difficulties such as these are what sparked a unique friendship between a local national and an Airman, and ultimately, the organization was born. “I met Annaleis at the dog club where I work,” said Patrick Eckerle, vice president and local resident of Paws Abroad. “A few months later she asked me to look

mation out to them and to serve as a focal point between the commanders and retiree community for issues that are pertinent to both,” said Luis de Andrade, RAO director. “Retirees are a vital part of the community, and especially in a community like this, about 60 percent of the retiree population still works full time. The community is fairly dependent on retirees.” The RAO can help retirees get information for almost anything they may need including healthcare or foreign driver’s licenses if they decide to retire overseas. For members planning to retire in Germany, briefings are held at 10 a.m. quarterly on the last Thursday of that quarter month in the Ramstein Airman & Family Readiness Center conference room, Bldg. 2120. “Folks can also just stop by for individual briefings at the RAO office,” de Andrade said. “(In the briefing) we cover all the things they need to know

into boarding for Keira when she was going on a (temporary duty assignment). We looked around and saw how expensive it was, so I decided I would take care of her. That was the first step we took to start Paws Abroad.” The organization’s mission is to form bonds between the local nationals and Americans. Eckerle, also a former soldier in the German military, said he understands the importance of helping service members find a temporary care provider for their pets because he experienced a similar situation with his dog. Along with being founder of Paws Abroad, Hunter is a service member and pet owner, therefore she has experienced both sides of the orga-

about retiring in Germany such as how to get a German license, the process for de-registering a vehicle in the U.S. system and getting it registered in the German system, registering oneself to live in Germany as a retiree and getting a residency permit, as well as information on customs and taxes that must be paid.” Just as the volunteers who run the RAO have different backgrounds and skills, so do retirees. These experiences can be used to aid the 2,600 retirees in the KMC. With a corporate group benefits background, Pam Rutkowski, RAO volunteer, uses her knowledge to help retirees with managing health and welfare plans. “I left a full-time job and wanted to find something to fill some hours, important hours at that,” Rutkowski said. “I thought it’d be a great place to volunteer because I can use some of my background to help the community.”

nization. While on deployment, she can rest easy and focus on the mission knowing someone she trusts is taking care of her dog, Keira. “The most Paws Abroad has helped me is by being a beneficiary of the services it offers,” Hunter said. “Keira has been with me on every assignment through three (permanent changes of station), and has lived in three separate countries in four years. She’s family, and you don’t just let anyone take care of your family. Through Paws Abroad, I was able to find a German foster family that Keira adored and I trusted to take care of her during my deployment.” Paws Abroad acts as a facilitator between pet owners and volunteers. Once an owner is in contact with a volunteer, meetings can be set up between them to see if their pets are compatible, if necessary. “Right now, we’re gaining volunteers through Facebook and word-of-mouth,” Clark said. “We’ll post a photo with information about the animal, and then we’ll get messages from people who are interested in taking care of them. Once we receive the messages, we’ll direct them to our website and provide them the owner’s contact information. Everything is worked out between them

The RAO supports all retirees regardless of their military or civilian affiliation. “We don’t care what color uniform you wear,” de Andrade said. “We have Air Force, Army, Marines, Navy and even Coast Guard as well as (Department of Defense) civilian retirees.” Having an RAO can be helpful when going through retirement. De Andrade said it’s important to take care of those who set the path for us, so one day in return, we’ll be taken care of. “When you retire, you don’t leave the service,” de Andrade said. “Everything is the way it is today because the ones that came before us improved it in some way. We owe it to our retirees to pay them back.” To contact the RAO located in the A&FRC, room 108, call 480-5486 or 06371-47-5486, or email 86aw.rao@ us.af.mil.

Courtesy of the 86th Civil Engineer Squadron The warm spring weather has finally arrived. It’s time for spring cleaning, barbecuing and practicing home fire saftey plans. So before firing up a gas barbecue grill, here are some helpful recommendations from the 86th Civil Engineer Squadron Fire Department. Grills should be inspected to ensure there is no buildup of grease or spider webs that inhibit the flow of gas to the controls. Ensure rodents have not made a nest in the area of the hoses and controls over the winter. This can cause propane to leak and ignite when the grill is ignited. If such a condition occurs, turn off the gas supply at the controls (if the controls are not on fire). If the controls are on fire, turn off the gas at the supply (propane tank). Call 1-1-2 to report the incident and the fire department will respond to ensure the fire is out and the gas is properly turned off.

The following are fire safety facts and tips for grills from the National Fire Protection Association. •  Twenty-seven percent of the home structure fires involving grills started on a courtyard, terrace or patio. 29 percent started on an exterior balcony or open porch, and 6 percent started in the kitchen. •  Almost a quarter of the outside gas grills and 29 percent of gas grill structure fires started when a flammable or combustible gas or liquid caught fire. •  Check for a gas leak by applying a light soap and water solution to the hose and watch for bubbles to form indicating a leak. •  Propane and charcoal barbeque grills should only be used outdoors. •  Never leave a grill unattended. •  Additionally, if using a chimney or fire pit consider this: all it takes is one spark for things to go wrong. A carelessly abandoned fire pit or a campfire built in a desig-

nated area without safe clearance can turn a small fire into a dangerous and fastmoving blaze. Be sure to build a campfire in a way that does not endanger anyone or the surrounding forest and abide by local laws and regulations. Enjoy a safe campfire by following these campfire safety tips: •  Choose a spot that's downwind, protected from wind gusts and at least 15 feet from tents and gear. •  Clear a 10-foot diameter area around the site by removing any grass, twigs, leaves and firewood. •  Dig a pit and circle the edge with rocks. •  Always be sure to keep a bucket of water or shovel nearby. •  Spring is a great time here in Germany. The Kaiserslautern Military Community Fire Department wants it to be a safe season. For questions, contact the fire prevention office at 480-5940 or 06371-47-5940.

86th MUNS conducts semiannual inspection Story and photo by Airman 1st Class Tryphena Mayhugh 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs A fighter pilot gears up and is ready for takeoff to complete a mission. He's pumped and prepared to do his part for the Air Force. As he prepares for departure, the pilot finds out that the munitions needed to complete his mission have corroded and are now unusable. Now the mission is canceled due to inspections not being done to verify if the assets were properly stored. In an effort to prevent these kinds of situations from happening on Ramstein, 34 Airmen from specialties within the 86th Munitions Squadron came together for an essential inspection March 16. Formed into six teams, the Airmen joined up to conduct the semiannual, 100 percent inventory inspection. Each office has its own set of goals to accomplish, that when pieced together, provide all of the information needed to achieve the 100 percent inventory.

“This is one of those times that the walls really fall down," said 2nd Lt. Niko Ruud, 86th MUNS materiel flight commander. “Every shop helps participate in the inventory, so whether you work in the accountability, inspection or storage section, we're all working together to make sure this happens.” With almost $400 million worth of assets, the inventory can seem like a daunting task to accomplish, but the 86th MUNS does not shy away from a job they know needs to be done. “If we lose accountability here, the Ramstein mission doesn't happen,” said Master Sgt. James Nagle, 86th MUNS munitions accountable systems officer. “Without maintaining this stockpile, we would not be able to put anything down range for the warfighters.” Ruud said that many people don't always understand how munitions affect the Ramstein mission, or why there is a munitions squadron on Ramstein since they are usually at fighter bases. “We execute a mission as a hub for U.S. Air Forces in Europe,” Ruud said. “We play a critical role here and that's why it's so important we maintain accountability of those assets; to make sure they're stored properly and ready to go when needed.”

Senior Airman Christian Afaisen, 86th Munitions Squadron munitions inspector, double checks assets for correct labeling and signs of corrosion as a part of the semiannual 100 percent inspection March 16 on Ramstein.

No matter the job, each Airman has an impact on how the mission is achieved. What may seem like extra work can be the critical line between failure and success. The 86th MUNS Airmen keep the mission running smoothly by doing their part in the well-oiled machine that is the Air Force.

US Army Reserve Soldiers train for disaster response Courtesy of 221st Public Affairs Detachment GRAFENWÖHR, Germany — When disaster strikes, Europe-based U.S. Army Reserve Soldiers stand ready to save lives, provide stability, assess damage, minimize suffering and restore essential services. During the Citizen Response 15 exercise, Soldiers from the 7th Civil Support Command in Kaiserslautern tested their ability to deploy with other U.S. military services and allied partners

in the aftermath of an earthquake. “Citizen Response is designed to exercise our expeditionary capabilities,” said Brig. Gen. Arlan M. DeBlieck, the 7th CSC's commanding general, during an on-air radio interview with AFN Bavaria. “We have multiple services, bringing them into a joint staff. So, this is an opportunity to exercise our technical expertise, but more importantly, our staff capabilities — a unified effort to a single response.” The two-week event began Feb. 28 and served as annual training for the Reserve Soldiers. Some 7th CSC Soldiers set up a command post at Grafenwöhr Training Area and meanwhile, near Ciudad Real, Spain, other Soldiers joined a U.S. Navy-led task force in Daimiel 15, an earthquake response exercise. Troops from Spain, Morocco, Algeria and France also took part, DeBlieck said. Overall, more than 3,500 troops were involved in the simultaneous exercises. The efforts in both Germany and Spain tested Soldiers' ability to oversee response efforts, provide civil affairs support and react to a challenging scenario that simulated a rapidly changing environment. Meanwhile, some Soldiers refreshed their lifesaving skills, advanced driving and map reading skills while others fired pistols, rifles and machine guns. This kind of training is important for Soldiers who have already served

in combat and is vital for those who have yet to deploy, said Sgt. Justin Arrington, combat engineer and Iraq veteran. “Downrange, you never know what position you'll be put in. You're not always going to be at a desk. If something happens on base, you're going to be off that desk,” Arrington said. “We have different jobs, but we're all Soldiers. We all have to be able to protect and defend.” Honorably discharged from active duty in 2007, Arrington, 36, of Washington Court House, Ohio, settled in Germany and started a family. In 2009, he joined the 7th CSC, earned an Army Reserve college scholarship and is completing

a graphic design degree. He now works for the marketing department at U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden's directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation, but if the Army needs him to deploy, training in disaster response scenarios such as Citizen Response, keeps his skills sharp, Arrington said. “Situations like this could happen at a moment's notice. We're the ones who are specialized to move out a moment's notice,” Arrington said. “That's why people talk about the 7th. They know there's a need for the capabilities and we have the assets to make it happen.” See ReSeRve, Page 15

Training for the 7th CSC Soldiers began in Kaiserslautern by packing gear and equipment in addition to preparing vehicles for a convoy. Leadership, teamwork and relationships strengthened during garrison days as well as important bonds or the tasks ahead. A small group launched to Grafenwöhr's Camp Normandy, setting up the 7th CSC's command post; a set of heated, green tents set in a field. Soldiers shrugged off the cold winter chill known well to troops who have trained at the sprawling U.S. training area in Eastern Bavaria. They set up computers, generators and satellite radios. After pre-deployment operations on Daenner Kaserne, some Soldiers flew to Rota Naval Base, Spain, while others drove in tactical vehicles to Grafenwöhr. Several Reserve units supported the 7th CSC missions, including the 361st Civil Affairs Brigade, the Medical Support UnitEurope, the 773rd Civil Support Team, the 221st Public Affairs Detachment and the 209th Digital Liaison Detachment. The task force was augmented by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency and the 111th Attack Wing, 11th Air Operations Group, a Pennsylvania Air National Guard unit from Horsham Air Guard Station near Philadelphia. In Spain, at Daimiel 15, Soldiers from the command provided Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear response, in addition to civil affairs, medical, and mission command capabilities to Combined Task Force 68, under the Naval Expeditionary Task Force Europe and Africa. This year's citizen response built upon last year's exercise, held in Baumholder, Germany and in Bulgaria, said Capt. Rocky Robinson, a 7th CSC operations officer. “It's been a phenomenal effort," Robinson said. "I think we took it to another level. That's a tribute to the leadership of Brigadier General DeBlieck and the hard work that our Soldiers put into this.”

PAO retires after 37 years of national media spotlight by Chuck Roberts Landstuhl Regional Medical Center Public Affairs


he was born and raised as an only child on a working farm in a small village in Ath, Belgium. Her father didn’t have or need the help of sons to manage the farm — he had Marie. Marie Shaw tended chores before school, rode her bike home at lunch in bitter cold weather to help out more and she continued to help out after school and on weekends tending livestock, baling hay and harvesting sugar beets in the dead of winter. A few years after graduating from college, Shaw landed a job in Kaiserslautern and continued to drive home on the weekends to help out with the family farm. It was that kind of work ethic that led her to a 41-year U.S. government career, 37 of those years as chief of public affairs at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center where she retires today. Her dedication and commitment to the job resulted in 24 career awards, including the Legion of Merit for the German Army, the Order of Military Medical Merit and two times as the U.S. Army in Europe PAO of the Year. “It is difficult to describe the influence, compassion and professionalism of Marie Shaw,” said retired Maj. Gen. Bryan Gamble, who served as LRMC commander from 2005 to 2007. “As a nation at war for the last 14 plus years, at a center for all ill, injured and wounded to evacuate to, Marie has deftly managed the complexities of media, political, medical and international relations. No one does it better than Marie.” For Shaw, there was much to do and numerous opportunities for success and failure. During her tenure, which included 15 change of command ceremonies, Shaw was directly involved with intense media coverage of patients treated at LRMC for the following events:

• 1981 — Iran hostage rescue attempt resulting in the death of eight U.S. service members • 1983 — Beirut barracks bombing killing 299 U.S. and French service members • 1983 — Terrorist bombing of U.S. Air Forces in Europe Headquarters at Ramstein • 1985 — Terrorist bombing of the La Belle Disco in Berlin killing two and injuring 79 U.S. service members • 1988 — Ramstein air show disaster killing 70 and injuring 346 spectators • 1990-1991 — Operation Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm • 1993 — Battle of Mogadishu resulting in 18 deaths and 73 wounded • 1995 — Sarajevo market place bombing killing 43 and injuring 75 civilians and subsequent establishment of a refugee center at the Landstuhl gym • 1996 — Khobar Towers terrorist attack killing 19 U.S. service members and injuring 498 • 1998 — Kenya Embassy terrorist bombing • 2000 — USS Cole suicide attack killing 17 and injuring 39 Sailors • 2003 — Repatriation of Pfc. Jessica Lynch • 2014 — Repatriation of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl Shaw has been the lynchpin and most crucial link between the U.S. military medical community and the national and international media in Europe. If a major event occurred in Europe or downrange that involved the likelihood of injured Americans, Shaw was among the first to be contacted by international media, including late-night phone calls at home. When high-visibility patients such as Jessica Lynch were scheduled to arrive at LRMC, a horde of media was usually waiting in advance. To cope with dozens of media crews and satellite vans for live television feeds, Shaw developed and orchestrated the overnight conversion of the LRMC Learning Center into a media center that could be in operation for days at a time. In

one instance, she was even required to act as a referee to physically separate two quarreling female reporters who almost came to blows while arguing about priority for an upcoming interview. After 9/11, Shaw faced a decade of continued intense media interest in covering the wartime mission at LRMC. Reporters from 29 countries were among the approximately 80 labor-intensive media engagements that Shaw contended with annually. CNN, USA Today and the Washington Post were among the major media outlets requiring coordination to film and interview patients, doctors, nurses, chaplains and behavioral health specialists. Interviews about the tragic consequences of war sometimes resulted in tears by the reporter, interviewee or by Shaw, who was once asked by a young Marine patient if he could give her a hug because she reminded him of his mother. “The work was tedious, but the rewards were great,” Shaw said. “I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with so many senior media representatives, patients and devoted staff members under so many diverse situations the past decades. There are so many memories I will cherish the rest of my life.” In addition to media engagements, Shaw also made an impact through hospital community relations programs designed to

enhance the medical work relationship between the various countries, allowing for the development of friendships and the exchange of information on medical issues important to the U.S. and Europe. In the immediate aftermath of the Ramstein air show disaster where the overflow of patients spilled into the emergency room parking lot, Shaw played a critical role by using her knowledge of host nation hospitals to help relocate patients to local German medical facilities. The air show disaster also revealed incompatibilities between U.S. and host nation medical equipment such as IVs. Shaw was instrumental in orchestrating the partnership activities between LRMC and the German military hospital in Koblenz that resulted in the official signing of the partnership agreement between the two hospitals in 1984. Additionally, she organized multiple partnership activities and partnership exchanges with the various local German medical universities and German military units. “What a wonderful, warm, positive voice and face for Army and military medicine throughout these challenging times,” said Army Surgeon General retired Lt. Gen. Eric Schoomaker. “Was there anyone who did it better than Marie Shaw? She will be missed badly. We wish her nothing but peace and joy in her new phase of life.”

ets and, of course, in the garden. Another tradition is to take an Easter walk through the woods, where little ones may find some more eggs that the Easter bunny accidentally “lost.” A popular meal served on Easter is roast lamb. According to Christians, the lamb is the symbol for the crucifixion and the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. The Easter lamb origin came from a 2,000-year-old Jewish custom, and in 1265, the lamb appeared as a pastry for the first time. Today, bakeries offer Easter lamb pastries as well as Easter leavened wreaths with a hard-boiled colored egg in the middle. 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 rights 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 a 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 during the Easter holiday. One reason might be because of the strict prohibition by churches to eat eggs during Lent. In former times, decorated eggs were given as gifts throughout the year. Later, it was only done on Easter. It was not only the Easter bunny giving away eggs. In mythology, storks, foxes and donkeys were the bearers as well. 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 some towns, Easter markets are set up where vendors sell handcrafted decorations, candles, artificial flowers, stuffed animals and candy. The Easter market in Kaiserslautern takes place through April 4 around Stiftskirche. The Kaiserslauten Gartenschau will have a lifesize Easter bunny passing out Easter treats to children from 1 to 3 p.m. April 5, and in Kaiserslautern-Siegelbach, the zoo season will start April 5 and 6 with an Easter fest.

Gartenschau highlights four seasons by Petra Lessoing 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs The Kaiserslautern Gartenschau, also known as dinosaur park, will re-open for the new season Saturday through Oct. 31, highlighting the motto, “The four seasons.” “The Kaiserslautern Gartenschau existed ever since 2001. Locals are emotionally bound to it,” said Dr. Klaus Weichel, Kaiserslautern’s lord mayor during a recent press conference. “Gartenschau started out as the state garden fair in the year 2000, and since then, it developed to an event park with lots of activities.” The Gartenschau features over 2 acres of gardens, including a rose garden, cactus garden, rhododendron garden, bible garden and dance garden. Every month, new flower exhibitions will represent the four seasons in the flower hall. Besides flowers, visitors can enjoy exhibitions, activities, entertainment and dinosaurs. “Last year we were able to welcome 500,000 visitors,” said David Lyle, chief of the integrated support aid iKL, in charge of Gartenschau Kaiserslautern. “A special highlight will be the Lego exhibition with about 1 million building stones showing the local Stiftsplatz with its surrounding buildings, scenes from Star Wars, Ghostbusters and other setups,” Lyle said. Like in recent years, the willow church on Kaiserberg hill will offer worship services at 11 a.m. Sundays as well as wedding and christening ceremonies. Also on Kaiserberg hill is an area to relax with a bare foot path consisting of 10 stations, that invite visitors for meditation. Other attractions are the dinosaur models and several playgrounds with sliding tower, pirates ship, new play equipment, a skate rink, soccer field, beach volleyball field and the adventure miniature golf court in Neumühlepark. The Gartenschau will also present numerous musical

Nutrition month — what’s for dinner? by 1st Lt. Lindsey Leitz 86th Aerospace Medicine Squadron When the topic of nutrition comes up, many of us automatically think about our own individual nutrition goals. However, since March is National Nutrition Month, I’d like to direct our focus toward a larger theme — the family meal. It turns out the simple act of eating together can have a tremendously positive and lasting impact on every family member. Interestingly, these positive benefits are attributed to family interaction around the table. So, what kind of benefits are we talking about? Let’s start with the obvious — nutrition. Did you know that families who eat together eat better? It’s true. Families who eat together tend to get more fruits, vegetables and fiber in their diets. They also tend to eat less fried foods and fewer calories. In addition to healthier food, family meals provide parents the perfect opportunity to teach life-long,

food-related skills that do not come instinctively to children. Kids learn skills such as meal planning, grocery shopping, cooking and setting the table. They expand their vocabularies by listening to other family members. They learn mealtime manners and social etiquette such as not speaking with their mouths full or interrupting. Using their parents as role models, kids mimic behaviors such as the openness to try new foods and eating appropriate portions. The benefits of family meals are not limited to just young children. There is a surprising link between family meals and risky behavior in teens. According to a study by the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University, teens who eat two or less family dinners per week are four times more likely to use tobacco, two times as likely to use alcohol and two-and-ahalf times more likely to use marijuana. However, all the benefits this precious time has to offer can be lost in the wrong environment. Do not use this time to deal with issues of con-

flict. Save the discussions about chores, homework or grades for later. This might prove difficult for many families since mealtime is the only time everyone is together. Even so, mealtimes should be positive experiences. If not, the meal may end quickly, may not happen at all or could trigger emotional coping mechanisms that involve poorer food choices (food avoidance or food for comfort). Remember that the key to all of this is family interaction. Turn off the TV. Put away the phones. Ensure all family members are at the table and stay there throughout the meal (even if they are not eating). Whether your family mealtime happens around the kitchen table, out at a restaurant or in the car between soccer and band practice, the important thing is it is happening. Don’t put pressure on yourself to make it perfect; just make it a priority. Any mealtime together is better than none. The whole family will reap the benefits.

FUN FAMILY ACTIVITIES NEAR KAISERSLAUTERN To make your family experience in Germany more enjoyable, we have listed some locations in the Kaiserslautern region that offer fun activities and events for big and small.

Gartenschau (Garden Show) If you live in the Kaiserslautern Military Community (KMC) you have likely driven past the Gartenschau and wondered what was going on. Perhaps you caught sight of a brontosaurus against a rock cliff backdrop, or maybe saw the blooming flowers and skatepark and wondered what this was all about. The Gartenschau is open from April 1st through October 31st each year. Attractions include a skate park, a beach volleyball area, basketball courts, a soccer field and playgrounds. At Neumühle Park there’s beautiful flowers, a cactus garden, dinosaur replicas, water treading in the Kneipp basin, sports fields and playgrounds, a shady area with many deck chairs, a picnic area, a beer garden and much more. You’ll also find family-friendly restaurants.

Dynamikum Pirmasens Transformed from a shoe factory to a science center, Dynamikum offers intuitive exploration with 160 exhibits. The main theme is “motion,” including “move something” and “moving yourself.” Movement is distinguished by eight divisions: friction, impulse, energy and its use with motional machines, research of natural motion, aspects of biological mechanics and the power of mind and in dance.

taurant just outside the castle serves food which is relatively inexpensive however they do not take debit or credit cards.

protection of species. The playground for little guests together with the nature adventure trail and the restaurant top off a typical day at the Kaiserslautern zoo.

Fun Forest Park Homburg Fun Forest is a two acre climbing park featuring an easy climbing course, a more advanced course, as well as a children’s course. One of the best adventures of the park is to zipline over the lake! Pirate Island is the new theme course, offering pure adrenaline with unique climbing elements and challenges. Night climbing events are available for about 60 people and require advance reservation. Non climbers can enjoy a day on the water or take a stroll in the recreation area.

Kaiserslautern zoo The zoo is situated on 17 acres and includes the habitats of 110 animal species and 631 wild and domestic animals. You can experience exotic animals as well as wild and domestic animals from various countries around the world. The zoo’s priority is to keep the animals in their natural environment. By demonstrating biospheres, animal activities, detailed information, animal education science and youth work, visitors are given an understanding of nature conservation and the

Burg Nanstein Landstuhl Nanstein is one of the most famous castles in the Pfalz due to a siege during the Knights’ Revolt in 1523 in which the lord of the castle Franz of Sickingen died. Nanstein’s fall was a symbol for the decline of castles in the Palatinate. Its grounds offer fantastic views of the town and surrounding countryside. It has been said that this castle is great for kids around the age of seven. The res-

Yabadoo Indoor Playground A huge indoor soft play area for children to jump around including a trampoline, a climbing mountain, a soft mountain, a dragon castle, toddlers’ play area, a softball shooter, indoor soccer and much more. Great for rainy days and play dates. There’s a snack bar if you want to have lunch but you can also bring your own picnic too. For more events and things to do go to www.militaryingermany.com –> activities –> kids

Explore your new home! Great city trips, fun playgrounds for kids, delicious recipes and much more.
