Airman devotes life to service by Senior Airman Hailey Haux 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

L

ong before he could fit into combat boots or even speak English, Peter Karpawitz-Godt was becoming familiar with military life. Born in the most northern town in Germany, Karpawitz-Godt was raised the son of a German police officer in the midst of World War II. After moving to Kassel, a major German city, Karpawitz-Godt said it was natural for them to get bombed quite a bit. “I was 7 years old when a 250-pound bomb landed in our backyard,” he said. “It didn’t explode, otherwise I wouldn’t be here right now. My dad unscrewed the fuse later on and cut it out.” After the war, Karpawitz-Godt’s father received letters from old friends who lived in the United States asking if one of his sons would like to come to America. “I was kind of adventurous so I said, ‘I’ll go,’” Karpawitz-Godt said. “I went to Youngstown, Ohio, in 1955, because that’s where (my father’s) friends lived.”

MIHAIL KOGALNICEANU, Romania — It is a sunny, warm day on the air base in Romania. Transient personnel sit in the post movie theater enjoying their morning when they notice something amiss. An Airman stands up in the theater and makes a call on his cell phone. “There is an active shooter in the theater.” Soldiers, Marines and Airmen on Mihail Kogalniceanu Air Base, Romania, took part in an active-shooter exercise at the base theater March 20. “This exercise is going to involve personnel from all over the base and all of the branches of service,” said Capt. Thomas L. Dixon, 202nd Military

Cannot ‘stress’ importance of stress awareness enough

COMMENTARY

by Master Sgt. Daira Hall 86th Munitions Squadron As I sat in my commander’s office, I thought to myself, “Am I the best person to write about stress?” After all, I am a new first sergeant, new to an overseas location and new to the line-side of the Air Force. What could I possibly know about stress? We all have stress, and we all deal with it differently. At what point does a person take control of the factors of stress in life or succumb to the pressure of it all? What is the first word that comes to mind when I mention the word stress? Is it work, family, home or money? We all have stress in our lives; it is a constant. It may have a completely negative connotation, or stress may be a positive motivator. According to Merriam-Webster’s online dictionary, stress is defined as a state of mental tension and worry caused by problems in your life, work, etc.; something that causes strong feelings or worry and anxiety; physical force or pressure. Upon further reflection, I decided that some of my experiences may be applicable. For example, the simple task of trying to write about stress caused me stress. Should I make a laundry list of all the stressful things in my life? This list would exceed the space available for this article. Instead I thought, let’s take a few moments to really flesh out ways to deal with, react or coun-

ter stress. The idea is to recognize and manage the negative and positive aspects of stress. Stress awareness is another tool to place in your tool kit when times get tough. Just as I referenced the dictionary, AFI 44-153, Traumatic Stress Response, defines typical and normal stress responses as: feeling keyed up, on edge and restless; hyper-vigilance; exaggerated startle response; irritability or outburst of anger; sadness and crying; fatigue; difficulty concentrating or preoccupation with a traumatic event; muscle tension; sleep disturbances (difficulty falling or staying asleep, or restless unsatisfying sleep); appetite disturbances (forgetting to eat or drink). Obviously, these are examples of the negative attributes linked with stress. Identifying the source of the stress and accepting when the situation is beyond your personal control are ways to put stress in a positive light. Having a good attitude can also go a long way to help discover solutions to stress problems. For instance, if what’s currently happening is going to be unimportant in five years, it may not be worth the worry. Learning from stress is an optimistic tactic to gain insight regarding the experience. Lastly, viewing the circumstances in level of importance can help people cope with stress. So, we know about negative and positive

stressors. How do we react and counter them? Unhealthy and harmful ways to deal with stress include smoking, drinking, over- or undereating, withdrawing from family or friends, sleeping too much or procrastinating. Healthy and progressive stress management includes listening to music, getting a massage, playing with a pet, taking a walk, reading a good book, watching a comedy, writing in a journal, playing a sport, calling a good friend, hunting or fishing, working in a garden, walking, running or working out. As you can see, the list of good or constructive stress management is longer. The main idea is to change our perceptions and reframe failures or shortcomings to new opportunities. In relation to stress, you should not think of things as all or nothing. Be compassionate with yourself and concentrate on the positive in the situation. Stress happens to all of us. The key is not letting it overwhelm you. By simply acknowledging that you have stress in your life, you have faced the challenge head-on. Knowing your foe or enemy helps you prepare for the battle. After recognition, you must choose how to react or counter stress. Most importantly, know when your stress level has exceeded your ability to cope and seek help. When in need, asking for help is truly a sign of strength.

‘Spring’ the alarm As service members prepare to move their clocks forward one hour Sunday for daylight saving time, the 86th Civil Engineer Squadron fire protection flight has a few recommendations concerning smoke detector safety. While springing forward, don’t forget to “spring” the alarm by replacing its batteries. Smoke detector batteries should be changed at least once a year to make sure they operate properly when they are needed most. When a fire occurs, there are only seconds to make a decision on how to escape the heat, toxic smoke and (monoxide filled) superheated gases. To increase the chances of survival, smoke detectors at home and at work should be properly maintained.

Below are more tips on how to increase survivability: • Place a smoke detector on every level of the home and outside each bedroom. If bedroom doors are kept closed while sleeping, place a smoke detector in each bedroom as well. • Check smoke detectors monthly by pushing the test button. • Never disable a smoke detector when cooking, and remember that smoke detectors wear out over time. Replace smoke detectors if they are more than 10 years old. For more information, call the fire prevention office at 480-5940 or 06371-475940. (By Master Sgt. Edward Seeley Sr. and Felipe Vazquez)

Ramstein child molester caught, convicted by Capt. Reba Good U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa Public Affairs The Airman who abducted and molested multiple children in the KMC in 2012 was caught and sentenced to 50 years confinement, reduction to airman basic and forfeiture of all pay and allowances March 18 at F.E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyo. Tech. Sgt. Michael L. Merritt, who was stationed at Ramstein at the time of the attacks, was convicted of charges involving children spanning from 2003 through 2013, and specifically, aggravated sexual assault, sexual abuse, sodomy, assault consummated by a battery, kidnapping and attempted kidnapping. He will serve 25 years confinement based on a pretrial agreement. “We are grateful that the families of the KMC area finally have closure on this,” said Lt. Gen. Tom Jones, U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa vice commander and KMC commander. “This predator caused a service, from Page 1

Although he went to America to go to school, Karpawitz-Godt had to register for the draft at the time. Even though he wasn’t a citizen, getting drafted was still a possibility. “One day I got a card that said, ‘Greetings from the Army,’” Karpawitz-Godt said. “I thought, ‘I don’t know anybody in the Army. Who would write me a letter from the Army?’ My friend informed me that I was drafted.” Instead of waiting for the draft, Karpawitz-Godt decided to go visit the Air Force recruiting office after the Korean War armistice was signed. It was in March 1956, at age 27, when he became an Airman in the U.S. Air Force. After training to be a supply Airman, he was stationed with the 48th Fighter Bomber Wing in France. It was there he met his future wife, something that would have never been possible without the military. “At first she didn’t like me at all, because I was a German guy who was fighting against them,” Karpawitz-Godt said.

lot of pain and suffering in our community, and we hope this conviction provides healing and a sense of security for all those affected.” Investigators pinpointed Merritt as the sole perpetrator after forensic evidence analyzed by the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Laboratory matched evidence found on some of the children’s clothing, said Lt. Col. Christopher J. Ouellette, Air Force Office of Special Investigations, 13th Field Investigations Squadron commander. This forensic evidence, combined with compiled witness testimonies and corroborated circumstantial evidence, helped lead to his arrest at F.E. Warren AFB. “Since the suspect was already at his next duty station, we had to carefully coordinate our efforts with stateside agencies,” Ouellette said. “Building our case against him took the full cooperation of military and civilian agencies in Germany and the U.S. It was a huge team effort.” The 13th FIS at Ramstein initially launched an investigation after a child

“Later on, she ended up becoming my wife. We are still married to this day and celebrated our 50th anniversary a couple years ago.” Karpawitz-Godt and his wife moved around while in the Air Force and eventually ended in California where he was a munitions maintenance Airman. “I was responsible for the munitions records during the Cuban (Missile) Crisis and wasn’t allowed to leave the base during that time,” Karpawitz-Godt said. “We slept on field cots next to the safe in case we had to open it in a split second. Once the Cuban (Missile) Crisis was over, we were released and I got orders for Ramstein Air Base.” While serving in his home country, he found out it was his turn to go to war. Karpawitz-Godt was sent to the war in Vietnam, where he was responsible for ensuring all aircraft in the Southeast Asian theater were equipped with all the necessary supplies. After serving in Vietnam, Karpawitz-Godt was transferred back to Ramstein in 1974 as the Defense Logistics Agency’s chief of defense

came forward in January 2012 to say a man had pulled her into his car in the Ramstein housing area and molested her. Several children in the Ramstein and Vogelweh housing areas came forward within that year to reveal kidnapping attempts and molestations. Investigators spent several months working around the clock, conducting more than 600 interviews and collecting more than 250 forensic samples from potential suspects. These efforts, combined with the multiple town halls held by the KMC commander, led AFOSI agents to receive more than 100 tips from KMC residents, said Special Agent Michael Tischer, 13th FIS, Major Crimes Division. “Without direct community involvement, leadership support and cooperation from the brave victims, we would not have succeeded in identifying this sexual predator,” he said. This collaborative effort ultimately revealed many more victims, and investigation into Merritt’s actions

reutilization and marketing office. He was transferred to several different squadrons and offices during his time at Ramstein until March 31, 1984, when he retired on the flightline. Since then, Karpawitz-Godt continued to work for the Air Force as a clothing issue management clerk, because he loves to meet new people through the military, he said. “The camaraderie, sticking together and being a team is huge. Nothing is more important than sticking together,” Karpawitz-Godt said. “That’s why I am still around the military; I enjoy meeting these young people. It keeps me young.” Being in and around the military for more than 50 years, achieving two Bronze Stars, a U.S. citizenship and much more, the passionate Vietnam veteran enjoys mentoring today’s Airmen. “Be patient, because things take time and there might not be openings for what you want, but eventually there will be,” Karpawitz-Godt said. “If you are persistent enough and continue on that path, don’t lose focus on what you want to do and what you want to

here is ongoing, Ouellette said. If witnesses and potential victims have knowledge of assaults by Merritt or other unknown perpetrators, they should contact AFOSI. Even though the threat of this particular predator has been eliminated from the public, Ouellette stressed the need for parents to continue educating their children on the dangerous realities of the world. “For example, parents could develop a ‘safe word’ for their children to use if approached by strangers,” he said. “This way, children won’t trust someone claiming their parents sent them. Merritt was able to lure some children willingly into his vehicle. We don’t want anyone to be fooled again.” If you see suspicious activity around your housing area or notice an unsupervised child being approached by a vehicle or an unknown adult, step in and prevent the situation from escalating. Then report it to your local security forces unit. Vigilance is every person’s responsibility.

of his wife. He will, however, still be in touch with his military family because he plans to move to the Enlisted Village.

Airmen retrace World War II footsteps Photos by Airman 1st Class Michael Stuart Airmen from the 86th Airlift Wing and their families participated in the annual Dead Man’s Ridge Walk March 23 in Houmont, Belgium. The walk honors the men of the 17th Airborne Division who marched through the Ardennes 69 years ago. The Airmen retraced the footsteps in an 8K and 18K walk. Each year the event funds the flight and accommodations for one veteran to come back to the site where they fought and pay their respects. This year, it was World War II veteran John Leather.

New technology connects air defenders over thousands of miles Story and photo by Maj. John J. Bailer 10th Army Air and Missile Defense Command models and simulations officer The task at hand seemed like it couldn’t be done. However, Col. Gregory Brady, commander of 10th Army Air and Missile Defense Command, insisted it could. Soldiers with 10th AAMDC, based out of Rhine Ordnance Barracks, and Soldiers with the 32nd Army Air and Missile Defense Command, located at Fort Bliss, Texas, have done something that hasn’t been done before. It’s called Hardware in the Loop, and the new training and command and control capability promises to change missile defense training and operations for the better. HWIL is an experimental technical procedure that allows air defense units to digitally communicate over vast distances. In this case, the procedure allowed Patriot Air Defense missile units from Fort Bliss to digitally communicate with and control Patriot units located at ROB — more than 5,000 miles apart. “The challenge was the systems we’re using weren’t originally

designed to function this way. We’re pushing this technology. The distances we normally operate are significantly shorter,” said Lt. Col. Jennifer Schulke, 10th AAMDC operations officer. Lt. Col. Brian Bowen, 10th AAMDC chief of staff, highlighted the historic importance of the advances the new system provides. “This is very exciting,” Bowen said. “It’s not every day you get to

add a page to Army doctrine.” The 10th AAMDC and 32nd AAMDC Soldiers are doing just that and added a new capability to their tool bags. The missile defense organizations are now able to train and conduct operations unit-to-unit across 5,000 miles. “Prior to fielding, HWIL units had to be co-located to train together properly, but not anymore,” said Maj. Ernest Harrell, executive officer

with 5th Battalion, 7th Air Defense Artillery Regiment, 10th AAMDC. Once the experimentation is complete, units will be able to train and operate without being co-located. Additionally, once this comprehensive testing is absolute, the units can submit their findings and procedures to the U.S. Army’s Training and Doctrine Command for further use and inclusion in technical publications. “A lot of firsts (are) going on here,” said Chief Warrant Officer 3 James Dunlop, systems technician with the 32nd AAMDC. “Before, if we wanted to train units we had to move our people and equipment to another facility. Now we can conduct this training in our own backyard. It’s a win-win.” Locally, the innovative tests took place in a newly upgraded simulation lab on ROB connected to real Patriot missile battery equipment. At Fort Bliss, the connection was made in a similar lab with similar equipment. “Anything can be done. It’s just computers and software. It’s really about time and money when it comes down to it, both of which we never have enough of,” said Maj. Rich Dixon, simulations officer with 32nd AAMDC.

Mass casualty training strengthens first responder skills Photos by Airman 1st Class Michael Stuart The 86th Medical Group hosted a mass casualty training March 13 on Ramstein. During the training Airmen played the role of patients suffering during a crisis while members of the medical group provided immediate care and transported them to a medical clinic as quickly as possible. Within about five seconds, first responders triage a patient by looking for respiration and perfusion and check the mental status of each victim to determine the amount of care they need.

Police Company, 93rd Military Police Battalion, 89th Military Police Brigade. “We are going to have Army military police, Air Force security forces, Army medics, Army firefighters, the Air Force flight surgeon, chaplains and civilians present. Members of the Romanian military will also be observing our personnel as they engage in this exercise.” The goal of the exercise was to test the capabilities and response time of all emergency response personnel. The first to respond to the emergency call were military police Soldiers from the 202nd MP Co. based in Fort Bliss, Texas, who arrived on scene within five minutes of the call. After neutralizing the shooter, they took control of the situation. “I believe that active-shooter training is always important, because it is something we as military police may encounter,” said Pfc. Tyheem A. Alphonso, military policeman from the 202nd MP Co., who neutralized the shooter. With the shooter neutralized, medics and firefighters rushed to the scene to administer medical care and coor-

alties. Soldiers assigned to the 21st Theater Sustainment Command’s 557th Medical Company, 421st MultiMedical Battalion, 30th Medical Brigade assessed each casualty’s medical condition while members of the 513th Firefighting Detachment, 20th Engineer Brigade set up casualty collection points outside. Personnel from all branches assisted in carrying the wounded to the casualty collection points. While the casualties waited outside for transportation, chaplains visited with each of them to provide counsel.

“We wanted this to be as realistic as possible, so we moved through the simulated casualties to provide counsel,” said Chaplain (Capt.) Thomas J. Gentry, 875th Engineer Battalion. “It is important for us to know what to do in these scenarios as well.” Within one hour of the emergency call, the exercise was complete. All personnel involved gathered in the theater to discuss ways to improve in the future. All involved agreed this was a valuable training exercise and aided in the base’s future readiness, said Sgt. Daniel J. Blackhorse, military policeman assigned to

the 202nd MP Co. “This was very important, because active shooter scenarios are something we have

seen on Army installations,” Blackhorse said. “This was great training for everyone involved.”

EAS commander pilots joint team to freedom in Romania Story and photo by Sgt. Maj. Michael Pintagro 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs MIHAIL KOGALNICEANU AIR BASE, Romania — No man contributed more to the first repatriation mission through Mihail Kogalniceanu Air Base, Romania, than Air Force Lt. Col. Todd McCoy. Service loyalties notwithstanding, 100 Soldiers of 1st Battalion, 26th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade, 1st Infantry Division, applauded the performance of the Air Force officer as their “freedom bird” touched down in Romania Feb. 22 after a five-hour flight from Afghanistan. Key leaders and warfighters from four services, three nations and two components contributed enormously to the creation and operation of the joint, combined facility at MK Air Base, but the commander of the 780th Expeditionary Airlift Squadron took things a step farther — he not only led the organization that operates the airfield but personally piloted the C-17A Globemaster III transporting the troops from Afghanistan. “I’ve been flying transit missions for over a decade, but even now, there’s nothing more fulfilling than bringing the guys back home,” McCoy said. “Being a part of that first mission and seeing the smiles on their faces when we reached MK and the guys realized they were a big step closer to home was truly awesome.” The Saturday night transit flight held special meaning for the 38-yearold Air Force leader and pilot due to its circumstances, but McCoy spends almost as much time in the air as on solid ground. Born in coal country in Beckley, W.Va., and raised in the Charleston area, McCoy showed more aptitude for flying than walking as a young child. “I had toys and model airplanes all over the place,” he said. “Every Lego block I owned was used to make airplanes.” At a time when most of his peers planned to serve alongside Batman or the Incredible Hulk rather than Soldiers or Marines, the 4-year-old McCoy told his mother confidently, “I am going to attend the Air Force Academy and fly airplanes.” A strong student who lettered in four sports at Nitro High School — named for the nitroglycerine industry that exploded locally in support of the First World War — McCoy finished well ahead of the pack in the classroom and the pool, as well as

on the soccer field and cross-country track. But success, sports and girls never completely eclipsed his soaring ambition. He pursued and ultimately secured a coveted slot at the Air Force Academy through the office of thenU.S. Sen. Robert Byrd. Three weeks after graduating high school in 1993, the young cadet arrived in Colorado Springs, Colo., for basic training. “It was definitely a learning experience going from life in a small town in West Virginia to life as a student at the Air Force Academy,” he said. McCoy clearly embraced and internalized the academy vision. “I learned about honor and leadership. These were some of our key tenets, and they were essential to success at the academy and in the Air Force,” he said. But life even at the Air Force Academy included its share of lighter moments. Unsurprisingly, the “Family Feud” and “Star Trek” jokes that accompanied him throughout his career flourished amid the campus social milieu. McCoy learned to defuse the humor by mining the vein even more skillfully. “I would tell them, ‘I never met a Hatfield I liked,’” he said with a smile. Like their Army counterparts, Air Force cadets compete academically for their choice of branch. Identified with one of the most prestigious of military — or civilian for that matter — occupations, pilot slots normally

attract stiff competition. McCoy performed superbly as a student, but he said this made little difference in his career path. “There was a pilot shortage when I graduated,” he said. “So anyone who wanted to be a pilot that year and met the requirements made it.” After six months of general aviation training, pilots “track select” for specific aircraft. Based on his desire to fly passenger missions to and from dirt runways and fond memories of the small military planes that “flew around Charleston all the time” during his boyhood, McCoy selected the C-130. He devoted years to mastering the aircraft and its missions, flying around 400 hours per year and progressing from student to pilot to instructor and evaluator. Then-Capt. McCoy’s tenure as a C-130 pilot at Pope Army Airfield, adjacent to sprawling Fort Bragg in south-central North Carolina, brought him into close contact with Soldiers conducting airdrop and transportation missions. He forged a meaningful professional bond with the paratroopers he supported during “hundreds” of airdrop missions. “The fact that we have lives in our hands when that green light goes on is not lost on any pilot,” he said. “Airdrop missions involve serious risk to the guys going out the back of the aircraft. We take our commitment to them very seriously — we take it to heart.”

Selected for promotion to major, McCoy moved on to larger roles and larger aircraft. He commenced training on a new system, but from a much broader base of knowledge and experience. “It was just a matter of learning the nuances of the aircraft and what it brings to the fight,” McCoy said. Interestingly, the C-17, now widely viewed as the primary inter-theater transport aircraft, “was meant for oversized and outsized unconventional cargo. It’s not the most effective passenger mover, but it’s the safest because of its defensive systems and tactical capabilities.” McCoy and other key leaders, including the mission’s senior Army and Air Force officers, arrived at MK in early January. They found a company of engineers from the 21st Theater Sustainment Command, a handful of planners, base support cadre and Romanian officials hard at work but far from an even match against the tidal wave of transit missions projected for February and March. As the small but able team of 21st TSC, Black Sea Area Support Team and Romanian staff accomplished daily missions on a shoestring and supporting staff trickled in, leaders established a conceptual framework that blossomed into initial and, ultimately, full-operational capability during late January and February.

McCoy’s EAS took charge of airfield operations — essentially the main effort for a passenger transit mission. “We execute the combat airlift of passengers to and from Afghanistan,” he said. “And that means not only the airlift piece but the maintenance of the aircraft, aerial port operations, loading and unloading of commercial wide body aircraft as well as the C-17s, and command and control — everything necessary to support these aircraft and the onward movement mission.” Like so many of his previous missions, command of the 780th evolved into an unorthodox but immensely rewarding joint, combined journey. “The 780th has to be the most extraordinary EAS on the Air Force map,” he said, noting his 130-Airman team includes not only the aircrew and staff that form the core of any comparable organization but assets normally associated with a contingency response element. “The Army provides a lot of our life support infrastructure,” he said. “But since we also have specific missionoriented requirements, we also have organic medical, maintenance and aerial port assets more akin to what you’d have in a CRE.” The unique Air Force leadership culture demands technical mastery as well as administrative excellence from its senior personnel. In other services, leadership, planning and organization tend to crowd out technical missions. Air Force officers — especially pilots — can’t afford to neglect their technical craft. McCoy remains an avid aviator as well as a squadron-level commander. He mentors, trains and evaluates pilots and crews, typically combining flights with developmental missions. McCoy said he tries to lift off weekly, usually serving as a mentor, instructor and/or evaluator during the flights. “In any command you want to be credible in commanding the mission, and part of that is being proficient in your main competencies,” he said. “For me that includes piloting the aircraft. It’s part of my skill-set as a pilot and even more so as a commander.” The grueling days, incessant flights, long hours and still longer tour might ground a lesser leader. McCoy signed on for an entire year in contrast with the Airmen and most of his Army colleagues, who typically serve tenures measured in weeks. Due largely to the efforts of versatile, innovative leaders who fly airplanes as an additional duty, the MK passenger transit mission has taken off, gained altitude and shows no signs of losing momentum. As seriously as he takes his command, his mission and his responsibilities as an aviator, McCoy appreciates the human dimension to the operation — unless, perhaps, a Hatfield enters his airspace. “The mission is fun and it’s only fun because of the great people who are here,” he said. “Everyone wants to get the mission accomplished, and it’s that can-do spirit that sets us up for success. That’s the attitude that keeps me going, and I think that keeps all of us at MK going.”

Aerial porter loads 1,500 missions to set record by Airman 1st Class Holly Mansfield 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

Being part of the largest dual-role aerial port expeditor program in the Air Force can bring any aerial porter a huge workload. The APEX program was created more than nine years ago by the U.S. Air Force Expeditionary Center as a way to improve cargo operations in the Air Force. When the program started, leaders looked for people with the drive for knowledge to become load directors. Little did leaders know that they were going to get a visit from a humble man with a big dream. Realizing he wanted to work around Air Force aircraft, at the age of 47, Kasper Chevalier, 721st Aerial Port Squadron load director, and his wife packed up their belongings and moved to Ramstein to pursue his dream. Since being trained as a load director for the APEX program in 2007, Chevalier took on the task of directing the loading of 1,500 aircraft setting a record for

the most APEX missions completed by any Air Force civilian. These aircraft carried more than 17,000 tons of cargo without the aircrew being present during the operation. Using this system he was able to save more than 2,000 aircrew duty hours. “The APEX program provides aerial port management flexibility in scheduling manpower and resources for aircraft loading/unloading while aircrew isn’t there,” said Master Sgt. Justin Hemken, 721st APS NCOIC of ramp services. “APEX allows aerial porters to spread their workload out over a great period of time, thus eliminating operational bottlenecks. It is the great equalizer when considering the balance of equipment, manpower and airfield operating hours.” Having a great program is one thing, but finding professional and proficient technicians to use it makes it powerful. Since the beginning, Chevalier has shown his mentors and peers he has the drive and determination to get the job done. See AeriAl porter, page 17

hildren of the KMC participated in a new weekly Warrior Program allowing them to learn life skills and build on personal growth goals. The Warrior Program is a mentorship group for male military dependents ranging from 13 to 18 years old. The program teaches them to be a warrior on the battlefield of life. As life warriors, an important thing for them to have by their side is personal decision-making skills, a strong code of ethics, high selfesteem and a tidy appearance. For these warriors, the battlefield is anywhere there’s something impeding their life goals or dreams. “Their war is against any distractions that won’t allow them to reach their full potential,” said Montaque Bussey, Ramstein youth programs teen coordinator. “Their weapons for fighting this war are their minds and their will to succeed.” Bussey said the enemies attempting to deter them come from within. “They have to know themselves,” Bussey said. “They have to know what their purpose is and what drives them so they can stay on

track and reach the goals they’ve set for themselves.” During the program, the young warriors are faced with numerous adversities, obstacles and changes in their lives that they need to overcome to work toward achieving success. The program objective is to raise successful young men who will lead their families and communities and inspire those around them to become warriors. “These young combatants exemplify good moral character, respect for authority, and are the example for their peers,” Bussey said. “They specialize at life warfare and represent professionalism at a young age.” The success of the program has spawned a similar program for young female dependents called the Jewel program. “We are building motivated young people who aspire to do better and be greater people,” said Sara Hatcher, youth program director. “Implementing a program for the young ladies allows us to spread the message to all of our young people so they can grow into successful men and women.” The program allows them to mitigate the negative effects of challenges they face in their everyday lives and focus it on positive community-building skills and to represent themselves as true warriors.

ATC Airmen aim for checkmate

Kaiserstr. 66 • 06371-62988 Sunday Worship 11 AM

A small room with walls made of glass stands 11 stories in the air, filled with only a few air traffic controllers and the quiet chatter of their radios. Tracking, coordinating and directing aircraft coming in and out of Germany, air traffic controllers from the 86th Operations Support Squadron place each piece as though playing an elaborate game of chess. While they look out their window planning their next move, the sun begins to rise from the hills casting a long shadow of nostalgia for a home far away. “I love working here in Germany,” said Senior Airman Israel Cruz, 86th OSS air traffic controller. “There are no words that can express how amazing the view is up here. Although I’m away from my family and friends, they understand the role I play in the Air Force and they are proud of me for it.” Air traffic controllers at Ramstein are responsible for providing safe and efficient air traffic flow by policing the movement of aircraft, issuing safety alerts and giving pilots a clear and precise picture of what is in the airspace around them. “You have to be able to think on your feet and try to anticipate what could happen next,” Cruz said. “It’s a strategy game in a way, but unlike a game, our pieces are people and we can’t just restart if we lose a life.” With a washout rate of approximately 50 percent from technical school to their first base, air traffic controllers work more as a close-knit family than colleagues. “There aren’t a lot of us in the tower,” said Senior Airman Jeremii Van Komen, 86th OSS air traffic controller. “Making it that much more important for us to work together, without the constant guidance from our peers and leadership we wouldn’t be able to keep up with all the aircraft.” Learning the ins and outs of the job as well as the base’s specific air traffic regulations can be a lengthy and daunting task for a new Airman, but once the approximately year-long training is completed, a badge is awarded to prove they have moved to the next level in their career. “Completing all the training and becoming HERE IN THE WOR LD

a rated controller is a significant milestone in our career field,” said Airman 1st Class John Moreno, 86th OSS air traffic controller. “While other Airmen may receive their occupational badge after technical school we have to wait until we arrive at our first base. From there we continue our training, and once everything is completed, there is a ceremony where we get the badge pinned on for the first time. “It’s not just another part of the uniform we get to show off,” Moreno continued. “It identifies us as the few who were able to complete all the challenges along the way and are now entrusted to control the traffic of various multimillion dollar airframes.” From the day they arrive, throughout their upgrade training, to the day they leave Ramstein, the traffic controllers here have a constant flow of airframes. In one year more than 25,000 aircraft will go through Ramstein, making their chess game in the sky a neverending match. “We are broken up into three shifts to ensure the safety of the pilots and their aircrafts all day every day,” said Senior Airman Kevin Xaynhachack, 86th OSS air traffic controller. “While coming home during the middle of the night to a sleeping family may be rough, I am lucky that my loved ones understand the sacrifices we as controllers have to make, and I am grateful for them. I really love everything about the job. This is what I wanted to do my whole life, and when my little ones run up to me asking, ‘Daddy, daddy did you talk to airplanes today?’ to see the excitement in their eyes because of what I do makes having this job a dream come true.”

Toastmasters take fear out of public speaking Story and photo by Dijon Rolle U.S. Army Garrison Rheinland-Pfalz Public Affairs

G

lossophobia, or the fear of public speaking, is a common social phobia millions of people suffer from. However, one organization on Ramstein is literally speaking out to help others overcome it. Twice a month a group of Airmen, Soldiers and civilians gather in the conference room of the Ramstein Northside Chapel to hone their public speaking skills. They are members of the Ramstein Toastmasters International Club. Toastmasters International is a non-profit educational organization that specializes in public speaking and leadership skills development. The organization has clubs spread across more than 120 countries around the world. The Ramstein club was established on June 8, 1957. David Sears, vice president of membership, said the meetings offer a relaxed and supportive environment where speakers can feel comfortable. “It’s a good place to rehearse, learn and practice how to deliver your ideas to a military audience as well as a civilian audience,” he said. Sears has been a member of Toastmasters for 25 years — 10 of them with the Ramstein club. “This gives everyone the opportunity to learn how to pull out key points and illustrate the ideas that you really want people to take home with them,” he said. Toastmasters members are given two different study guides to help them effectively organize and deliver their speeches. Afterward, peer evaluators provide constructive feedback on each presentation. Club members all have varying degrees of public speaking experience. Some Toastmasters International Club members Staff Toastmasters are looking to Sgt. Marquis Clay (left) and Senior Airman Stephen simply fine-tune their speakIrizarry discuss speech ideas after a March 18 meeting ing skills, while others are on Ramstein. Toastmasters International is a non-profit still learning the ropes. organization that helps members develop their public Senior Airman Stephen speaking and leadership skills. Irizarry, vice president of public relations, joined the club nearly two years ago to polish his professional presentation skills and communicate more effectively with all types of listeners. “The best thing about being a Toastmaster for me is the ability to communicate with just about anyone,” Irizarry said. “I can articulate my thoughts as opposed to just trying to find the right thing to say, regardless if I’m talking to a fellow Airman or a high ranking officer, church leader, government leader or just one of my peers. I don’t have the same fear that I would have had before I joined Toastmasters, because I’ve gotten used to talking to so many different people.” The Ramstein Toastmasters International Club meets at noon the first and third Tuesday of every month (with the exception of U.S. holidays and Air Force family days) in the Ramstein Northside Chapel conference room. Membership is open to anyone 18 years or older with access to the installation.

Women’s History Month luncheon Tech. Sgt. Candace Helder, 76th Airlift Squadron flight attendant, sings an uplifting and encouraging song during the Women’s History Month luncheon Tuesday on Ramstein. Women’s History Month is dedicated to the accomplishments of women and designed to empower women all over the globe.

AeriAl porter, from page 11 “Mr. Chevalier’s drive has attained him a title very few APEX’ers will ever see,” said Patricia McClure, 721st APS capability forecaster and former APEX instructor. “He was one of those students you can never forget because of his personality and ambition. When Kasper reached his 500th APEX load milestone in 2010, it kindled a bit of competition between Ramstein and Charleston APEX’ers ... but I believe Kasper has won.” Having a passion for the job can make a person given a rare opportunity very grateful to the people helping them throughout their career. “I love doing my job,” Chevalier said. “I love working around the aircraft, and I’m thankful that I’ve been given this chance to have a job that most will never be able to do.” Photo by Airman 1st Class Holly Mansfield “Kasper is a unique individual,” Kasper Chevalier (left), 721st Aerial Port Squadron Hemken said. “Like us military load director, helps members of the 721st APS members, it is more than just a job load cargo onto a Joint Base Lewis-McChord C-17 to him. He truly cares about what Globemaster III March 4 on Ramstein. Chevalier he is doing and the impact he has. recently achieved his 1,500th cargo load. He understands that the cargo he is moving is ammunition for a comrade in a foxhole, a shelter to sleep in, or food to eat. Also, and most impressively, he cares about the development of our Airmen. He teaches them the right way to do business — by the book. He wants them to be experts.” Using his passion for the job and determination to teach others the proper way to complete the mission, this self-described “little man from the Netherlands” reached his dream of working with Air Force aircraft which translated into a successful mission for all members of the 721st APS.
