Ramstein Airmen help kick off Real Thaw 16 Story and photos by Senior Airman Jonathan Stefanko 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs BEJ A, Portugal — Approximately 60 Airmen from Ramstein, along with partners from six allied nations, kicked off exercise Real Thaw 16 with an opening ceremony Feb. 21 in Bej a, Portugal. Real Thaw 16 is a Portuguese-hosted NATO exercise that provides tactical training to participating nations. Its aim is to merge and employ different aerial platforms toward one maj or obj ective, covering a vast range of activities to include defensive and offensive counterair operations, highvalue air assets protection and slow-mover protection. “ eal Thaw 6 first eb te in 2009. Since then, we have been improving scenarios and aiming to prepare forces for operations throughout the world,” said Brig. Gen. Barros Ferreira, Portuguese See REAL THAW, Page 2

Strength in diversity, empowered by proud heritage


by Brig. Gen. Roy Agustin U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa Throughout my Air Force career, I’ve cooked for, performed at and spoken at Asian a ifi herita e festi ities from Kunsan Air Base, Republic of Korea, to Langley Air Force Base, V irginia. With more than 8 million Asian a ifi Ameri ans from nearl o ntries an ethni ro s it can be a challenge to include every group, each with distinct languages, cultures, traditions and beliefs. There is a common thread that weaves through the rich and diverse tapestry of the American experience. That thread is the shared optimism and dream of a better life in a country where all things are possible. This ream is not ni e to Asian a ifi Americans, but it is inherent to all who have come to America. To a more than 62 a ti e t service members in the U .S. armed forces report

themsel es as Asian or a ifi slan er The leadership opportunities available to today’s service members, as well as more than Asian a ifi Ameri an eterans would not have been possible without those who bravely served our nation before us. We an tra e ba to the ar of 8 2 an fin “Manilamen,” a term used to refer to Filipino natives, who fought alongside Gen. Andrew J ackson during the Battle of New Orleans. I owe a debt of gratitude to not only Asian a ifi Ameri an eterans b t also to Americans of all ethnicities who promote equa lity and inclusion. Mentorship and building leaders are not exclusive to a certain race or ethnicity. Mentorship is an inclusive gift that we are all empowered to capitaliz e on and provide. Throughout my career, my commanders and supervisors mentored me and gave me an opportunity to lead. Power is the ability to make something or someone do something that they may not normally do. In our great country, everyone is empowered to take control of their own

destiny and, through perseverance and intestinal fortitude, prevail over adversity. So I challenge you to be empowered, to act to do something that you normally may not do, and to do something extraordinary and realiz e your dreams. Dream big like the reverend Martin Luther King J r., who envisioned a world not based on the color of skin but on the content of one’s character. Dare to dream like veterans who have paved the way. But while I dare you to dream, the greater challenge is to accept your empowerment and act on the dream. Whether your ethni ba ro n is Asian a ifi slan er African, European, Hispanic or NativeAmerican, you are part of this country’s rich tapestry, and you can have a positive impact on our nation’s future. Diversity has made our nation and our military stronger. As Americans, we have all been empowered by this country’s legacy of freedom and opportunity. So dare to dream big; dare to act and promote diversity and inclusion.

Ramstein defends cyberspace ‘runway’ by 1st Lt. Krystina Watkins 86th Communications Squadron The Command Cyber Readiness Inspection scheduled for March 14 through 25 is an inspection of the security posture of Ramstein’s network led by the Defense Information Systems Agency. This assessment takes an in-depth look at the policies, procedures and technical capabilities in la e on amstein ens rin lassifie an sensitive information created, transmitted and stored is protected from unauthoriz ed disclosure. Repercussions for failing a CCRI can include disconnection from the Department of Defense Information Network and the isolation of all government computers on an installation. In the cyberspace domain, the U .S. Air Force is always operating in a forward-facing environment of trusted relationships where a single weak link can endanger the entire Department of Defense. Readiness is essential to ensure cyberattacks are held at bay. Due to the literal light speed of intrusion attempts, it is essential to be ready now. The 86th Airlift Wing mission is to generate and employ air mobility and operate key Air Force power proj ection platforms. But did you know, it also operates as a power proj ection platform in bers a e n amstein o ll fin a “thir

runway” where operations are supported daily via both terrestrial and satellite links. While the 86th Communications Sq uadron takes a leading role in authoriz ing administrators, operating and maintaining base infrastructure, and serving the vast maj ority of customers in the KMC, the 86th AW is not the only unit inspected under the CCRI. The KMC is home to 13 different full-time communication units, including the enterprise hub for the maj ority of the U .S. Air Forces in Europe’s information technology services as well as numerous organiz ations with information technology personnel dedicated to operating and maintaining discrete mission-enabling systems. In addition, there are four internal domains that reside within the greater Ramstein network that receive a full concurrent CCRI on their own and get tied to the overall Ramstein score. All this adds up to an inspection of a cyber footprint larger than all U .K. air force bases combined. o Airmen now the are the first line of efense when it comes to the security of Ramstein’s network? Contrary to conventional belief, attacks on the U .S. do not have to take the form of large coordinated government funded efforts. Be on alert for insider threats. Don’t be afraid to report suspicious

activity to your security manager. Below are some tips on how users can do their part to keep Ramstein secure. Log out and restart Nonsecure Internet Protocol Router computers at the end of the day, but do not power them down. Only plug authoriz ed U SB storage devices into government computers. U SB drives are a vector for malicious logic and can expose the Air Force Network to intrusion. Do not leave Common Access Cards unattended. V iolators may be held accountable for illicit activity originating from computers accessed using their CACs. Get to know the unit information assurance offi er The re res onsible for o enin tro ble tickets and acting as a focal point for all cybersecurity matters. The 86th CS is working hard to do its part to ens re the base networ is onfi re ro erl an compliant with DOD policies, but every Airman plays a role in keeping Ramstein’s network secure. Now armed with these tips and an understanding of the role the 86th AW plays in cyber preparedness, Team Ramstein’s challenge is to do its part in protecting security.

The parking lot of the Ramstein Express, better known as the shoppette, began this week. The first phase of the two-phase project will turn the current exit of the parking lot into a right-turn-only exit and place a barricade in the center of the road running alongside the parking lot. The second phase will extend the barricade as well as create an additional exit, which will allow gas-and-go patrons to exit the area without going into the shoppette parking lot.

contracts for widening the road and making the second exit have yet to be awarded. “As an one who has fille up with gas on Ramstein during a busy time knows, this has been an ongoing roblem Ahern sai “As we’ve been working our lines of effort under the 86th AW strategic plan to improve our installation excellence, it became apparent that this was something

Behind the medal: How four Airmen saved 90 lives Story and photo by Airman 1st Class Lane Plummer 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs The sun was j ust beginning to glow across the dark skies of Mali in late May, 2014. As the western African nation came to life, Airmen from the 37th Airlift Sq uadron were double checking secured cargo and pressuriz ed oxygen tanks, preparing for takeoff in a Ramstein C-130J Super Hercules. Master Sgt. Boris Brink, 37th AS operations superintendent, was a loadmaster for the fi e ho r fli ht to ali He slowly made his way up and down the plane, ensuring 80 passengers were strapped in and ready to go and 10 aircrew members were prepared for ta eoff ith the final tra eler i in a th mbs to rin he ontin e mo ing around the plane alongside his wingman, Tech. Sgt. J ustin Pike, a former 37th AS loadmaster. Brink checked off his list of procedures. The oxygen was hooked up, the cargo was securely locked into the rail system, and the emergency eq uipment was ready to be used. e finall se re his seat belt as the roar of the engines floo e the ar o hol e felt his body push back into the chair as the plane lifted off the ro n an flew into the dimly lit skies. It would only be moments later that Brink was alerted of a malfunction in the aircraft.

Master Sgt. Boris Brink, 37th Airlift Squadron operations superintendent, received the Air Medal for demonstrating exemplary airmanship Feb. 19 on Ramstein. During a flight to Mali in 2014, Brink and his crew saved 80 passengers’ lives, a $70 million aircraft and 5,000 pounds of equipment during a ramp-open landing, the first ever recorded of a C-130J Super Hercules.

“At the time, I was performing my ( post-takeoff) checklist,” Brink said. “I noticed the ramp locks were retracting.” Both Brink and Pike attended to the issue and worked to fin a sol tion o more than fi e min tes later the a isor a tion an warnin system went off. “There was an air leakage,” Brink said. “So I told Pike to turn the ramp pump on. Around the time we did that, we heard what sounded j ust like an explosion coming from the direction of the ramp.” Following the loud blast of noise, the ramp collapsed open and dust swarmed around the cargo-hold area. The sound of

They accomplished this while communicating with the other two members of the crew in the

cockpit, Capt. Derrick Hoxie and Capt. Kenneth J ubb, pilot and co-pilot. “We all worked really well together,” J ubb said. “When the ramp opened up, we were all thin in has this e er ha ene before en with that in the back of our mind, I’d say the crew remained calm throughout the whole situation.” or fi e ho rs the lane was e t stable es ite ha ing the ramp open and exposing the cargo hold to the elements. During this time, the pilots were deciding how to land without maj or damage. “We planned the landing early,” J ubb said. “We took input from Ramstein Air Base

and a Lockheed Martin specialist.” As rays of light made their way into the cockpit, Hoxie and his crew knew it was near time to land. It was going to be the first o en ram lan in e er erforme in a U pon their slow approach to Mali, there weren’t any second guesses from the crew.

He talked about the importance of pride in service. “As m first ser eant st t an Sattelberg, says, ‘ Pride is contagious. It trickles down,’” Chadwick said. “I, as a Soldier, always think about these words. I believe everyone needs to take pride in themselves. How can we, as leaders, teach other Airmen or Soldiers to have pride and integrity in their j obs, and in life, if we don’t feel it in ourselves?” Chadwick said he appreciates the opportunity to attend both the Army and Air Force advanced leadership classes. “ t was efinitel one of the best courses I have attended,” Chadwick said. “I’ve also learned that Soldiers and Airmen are more alike than I thought prior to attending the NCOA. We deal with the same issues every day, from taking care of our Soldiers and Airmen to working with our bosses and accomplishing our missions. We j ust wear different uniforms and answer to different leaders. I have more respect for the Air Force after taking this course.”

Homefront Heroes honors children, spouses

The ceremony honors children and spouses for the sacrifices they make while their family member is deployed.

Story and photos by Airman 1st Class Larissa Greatwood 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Deployments can be stressful for military members. Being away from family, not knowing when they’ll be home an fi htin in ombat ones are j ust a few stressors. While away, spouses and family members take care of the daily tasks and chores to ensure military members don’t have to worry about home life. On Feb. 19, the 86th Logistics Readiness Group hosted a Homefront Heroes ceremony, which honored the accomplishments, dedication an sa rifi es ma e b s o ses an family members while Airmen were deployed.

They really are the silent heroes. When kids are old enough to understand what’s happening, they often see their arent re o ni e for their service, so it’s a big deal when they themselves receive an award. Their faces j ust light up.” Though some bases may have adapted the idea of Homefront eroes the first eremon hel

A: Dr. Ivonn Ellis-Wiggan, Royal Air Force Mildenhall sexual assault response coordinator, has had an incredible infl en e on me he en o raged me to speak more candidly about my experience as a military sexual assault survivor. She campaigned for me to sit down with Maj . Gen. Camille M. Nichols, Department of Defense Sexual Assault Prevention an es onse offi e ire tor to represent the Air Force in Washington to discuss sexual assault impact on the military. Q: What is your greatest personal accomplishment thus far? A: So far, my greatest accomplishment has been raising awareness and offering a voice to survivors.

As terrible as the experience was, I am glad that I can give back. Q: What do you like best about serving in the Air Force? A: My favorite thing about the Air Force is that it has given me the opportunity to travel and experience different cultures. I am a huge fan of travel and having the opportunity and means to do so has been fantastic. Q: What professional goal do you hope to accomplish, and how are you working toward that goal? A ho e to finish m bachelor’s degree in public health by the time my enlistment ends. I would like to work with the public health aspect of inner-city school systems. Q: What is something uniq ue that most people don’t know about you? A: I don’t know how to swim, even though I grew up in a state surrounded by la es Also am terrifie of Ferris wheels. Q: If you could give one piece of advice to women interested in j oining the Air Force, what would it be? A: It is an incredible opportunity, and it absolutely is what you make it. You will learn so much about yourself, and it could teach you in ways you didn’t think would be possible.

Oma’s Goulash Soup Ingredients (for 4 people) • 1 lb. beef for stew, cut into ¾ inch cubes • 2 tablespoon oil • 2 onions, coarsely diced (about 1 inch pieces) • 1 garlic clove, crushed • 1½ cups tomato juice • 4 cups beef broth • 1 teaspoon salt • ¼ teaspoon fennel • 1 tablespoon sweet Hungarian paprika • 2-3 potatoes, cut into 1 inch cubes • 3 peppers, preferably different colors, cut into 1 inch pieces • Salt, pepper, hot Hungarian paprika (optional) Heat oil in a large pot. Brown half the meat, remove meat it and brown remain-

ing meat. Return all meat to the pot, adding onions and garlic. Cook on high heat for several minutes, stirring often. Add tomato juice, beef broth, salt and paprika. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for about an hour. Add potatoes and peppers. Cook for another 15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Season with additional salt, pepper and hot Hungarian paprika, if desired. This soup is great served with some fresh crusty bread and a green salad. It can also be served Bavarian style, by adding mini bread dumplings to the soup. The question often comes up — is Goulash Hungarian or German? The answer is it’s both. The Hungarian recipes usually have potatoes in them and are more soup like. Many Germans often serve it with the potatoes on the side or even just bread or buns to dip into the amazing gravy-like broth.

See you next week!

Germans say goodbye to winter with parades, plays, fires by Petra Lessoing 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs March is the month to say goodbye to winter and welcome spring. In the Pfalz area, several towns and villages observe various traditions to do that. One tradition is to “burn winter,” and another one is to have summer-day parades and perform summer-day plays. The most popular and biggest summer-day parade and play always takes place the third Sunday before Easter in Forst along the German Wine Street. Forst residents perform a la alle “ anselfin erh t est The first erforman e takes place at 2 p.m. Sunday near the northern exit of the village, and the last performance is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. in front of Felix-ChristophTraberger-Halle. Historical documentation of the play dates back to 1721. The dramatic play originated in Southern Germany and Switz erland. It has a deep mean-

ing, but it is spiced with humor and originality. The story is based on the old Teutonic idea of a fi ht between s mmer an winter. The play consists of four scenes and six characters with the village streets as the stage. The first s ene shows the fi ht between winter and summer. Both performers are placed in little cone-shaped houses made

of slats and sticks. The winter house is covered with straw and has a straw cross on top; the summer house is covered with ivy and decorate with a bl e an white fla on its top. Both houses have a little hole to look through. The two competitors are armed with sabers made of wood and walk down the street with the house over their head. They

talk about their good q ualities before the finall start fi hting. Summer wins. n the se on s ene an officer cadet, who looks like a mercenary from former times, i iall resol es the fi ht between winter and summer. In the third scene, the main character of the play, anselfin erh t a ears is dress is shabby and his face is smeared with oil and soot. He represents a tramp who lost all his belongings but still is in the mood for playing tricks on others and teasing young, goodlooking girls. While singing, he swings between the summer and winter houses, which are abo t fi e meters awa from each other. Finally, he looks for a girl from the audience to press a black brand, a kiss, onto her face. The fourth and final scene demonstrates how anselfin erh t is e ha ste and how the barber tries to cure him with a bloodletting on his toe t he faints an the officer cadet tickles him with his

swor anselfin erh t wa es up again and eats fresh pretz els to recover. All performers keep walking through the streets and re-perform the play twice before the burning of winter on the Festplatz . Traditionally, the fest starts in the morning after the worship service. Children receive special broetchen, a type of bread. This tradition dates back to 1600 when the emperor’s court reader, Felix Christoph Traberger, made a donation. n a ertifi ate from e t 8 1600, Traberger mentions the good neighborly intents of the mayor and the whole community, which made him donate 40 guilders, the former German currency, with a two-guilder interest. The court reader decided that each year on mid-Lent Sunday, broetchen for two guilders must be bought and given to local children. To thank the donor, a prayer must be said for him.

Forst is a little village with about 700 residents located between Bad Duerkheim and Deidesheim. It has many vineyards and is well-known for its wine. Typical framework houses and sandstone buildings covered with ivy and vines dominate the village’s look. The main street, paved with stones, is part of the German Wine Street. To “burn winter” means to put up piles of wood and straw, light them and wait for them to burn down. The tradition goes ba to a an times when fires KAISERSLAUTERN

Zootopia (PG)

London Has Fallen (PG-13)

From the largest elephant to the smallest shrew, the city of Zootopia is a mammal metropolis where various animals live and thrive. When Judy Hopps becomes the first rabbit to join the police force, she quickly learns how tough it is to enforce the law. Determined to prove herself, Judy jumps at the opportunity to solve a mysterious case. Unfortunately, that means working with Nick Wilde, a wily fox who makes her job even harder. Starring Ginnifer Goodwin and Jason Bateman. Courtesy of Movieweb.com

After the British Prime Minister passes away, his funeral becomes a target of a terrorist organization to destroy some of the world’s most powerful leaders, devastate the British capital, and unleash a terrifying vision of the future. The only hope of stopping it rests on the shoulders of the president of the United States, his formidable Secret Service head and an English MI-6 agent who rightly trusts no one. Starring Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman.
