Water is emitted through foam generators during a biennial fire suppression system test Feb. 19 on Ramstein. There are two water storage tanks, each of which takes approximately 26 minutes to empty and run through the drainage system.

Sprinklers come alive in hangar five

Recently, hangar five suspended operations for two consecutive days due to a biennial fire suppression system test and inspection. Underneath the hangar floor lie two 150-cubic-meter storage tanks filled with water to be pumped through pipes and out of foam generators

located in the ceiling of the hangar in the event of an aircraft fire. These tanks were emptied to test the system. Each storage tank takes approximately 26 minutes to empty and drain back through the piping system beneath the floor. Once the storage tanks are empty, Airmen from the 786th Civil Engineer Squadron clean and inspect the large reservoirs. “We had about 4,500 gallons of water coming out per minute from a 40,000 gallon tank,” said Airman 1st

Class Thomas Gordon, 786th CES water and fuel systems maintainer. “It takes us several hours to clean and inspect each tank. We pressure wash the walls and inspect for any cracks or damage to the structure.” Gordon said it’s a two-day process because they follow a checklist for each tank to ensure safety, compliance and effectiveness. Not only is the test crucial for ensuring the system is constantly working, but Senior Master Sgt. Brian Eshleman,

AF leaders seek relief from sequestration-level funding by Staff Sgt. Torri Ingalsbe Secretary of the Air Force Public Affairs Command Information WASHINGTON — Secretary of the Air Force Deborah Lee James and Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Mark A. Welsh III discussed the damaging effects of sequestration with members of the House of Representatives Committee on Appropriations’ Defense Subcommittee Feb. 27. “Your Air Force is working hard to meet the combatant commanders’ most urgent needs,” James said. “But a budget trajectory that results in sequestration simply will not allow us to sustain this pace. We will either break or we won’t be able to execute the Defense Strategic Guidance. We cannot do it.” Sequestration-level funding will force the service to divest fleets

Expired license issue resolved by U.S. Army Europe Public Affairs The issue concerning the validity of expired United States drivers’ licenses has been resolved at the diplomatic level. It has been deemed consistent with Art. 9, para. 2 of the Supplementary Agreement to NATO SOFA that the legal entitlement to drive a private vehicle in Germany remains in force even when the corresponding U.S. state license has expired. German authorities will go back to the old policy and continue to recognize expired state licenses as long as the driver holds a valid U.S. Army Europe certificate of license. Cases that were initiated solely for driving with an expired U.S. license (but valid USAREUR certificate of license) will be discontinued.

OHA survey critical by U.S. Army Europe Public Affairs U.S. Army Europe is asking service members in Germany who are residing off post in privately leased or rental housing to take part in the annual housing survey. The survey is instrumental in ensuring accurate housing allowance rates for military families living off post. This survey is critical in ensuring Overseas Housing Allowance rates are properly set at overseas locations and directly affects the amount of housing allowance paid to service members. “Taking the survey allows service members to have a direct impact on the amount of utility and recurring maintenance allowance they will draw as part of their Overseas Housing

Allowance,” said Randall Ries, Germany Country Allowance coordinator. The Defense Travel Management office began its monthlong OHA utility survey March 1. “Individual responses to questions are kept confidential,” Ries said. “Last year, service members saw a $14 a month increase to the utility allowance. In 2012, we had a $59 increase, and, in 2013, we had a $17 increase.” An exemption from this survey includes homeowners or those sharing rent with another service member. Spouses are authorized to take the survey if the service member is deployed or unavailable. The survey will be active until March 31 and can be found online at www.defensetravel. dod.mil/site/oha-util-mar.cfm.

To avoid some of these cuts, the Air Force has proposed a fiscal year 2016 budget that is about $10 billion more than current funding levels, which will allow the Air Force to meet combatant commander requirements while investing in the service’s top priorities. “Even if we get that (additional funding), it doesn’t solve every ill,” James said. “There’s a lot of good in our budget, but there’s also hard choices.” Some of those hard choices include divesting the A-10 Thunderbolt II fleet, slowing the growth of compensation and requesting another round of Defense Base Realignments and Closures. “The most pressing issue of all (is) more than half of our combat Air See SEQUESTRATION, Page 5 HANgAR fIvE, from Page 1

we’re doing everything we can do to ensure their landscape stays intact and healthy.” Staff Sgt. Benjamin Schultz, 786th CES water and fuel systems maintainer, said the hangar is designed to control pollution through an underground network of storage that collects the water and is released into a sanitary sewer in controlled amounts and regulated by a sewage treatment plant in Landstuhl. The hangar is unique because it’s the only one in U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa with the capability to support aircraft coming and going with different amenities. The hangar can service various aircraft, including the C-5, C-17, KC-135, KC-10 and C-130, as well as several commercial aircraft. “This hangar supports five combatant commands,” Eshleman said. “The hangar is the only certified internal fuel tank system repair facility in Europe that can fully enclose a C-5 or C-17 for internal fuel systems maintenance, engine changes and flight control surface changes.” With inspections happening twice a year, the 721st AMXS and 786th CES Airmen continue to work together to ensure fire safety and sanitation remain a priority to warrant a successful mission.

240th QM educates 86th LRG on Army logistics by Sgt. 1st Class Alexander A. Burnett 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs Soldiers from the 21st Theater Sustainment Command’s 240th Quartermaster Company, 18th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, 16th Sustainment Brigade hosted a professional development session for officers and senior noncommissioned officers from the Air Force’s 86th Logistics Readiness Group Feb. 27 at Smith Barracks in Baumholder. The 18 Airmen, ranging in ranks from lieutenant colonel to master sergeant, started their development session with a tour of the 240th QM Co. maintenance facilities. During a walk through the motor pool maintenance bays, they received a briefing on petroleum, oil and lubricant operations, water purification, and supply transportation. They also learned about the Army’s mobile purification systems for water and petroleum. “The Army seems to be big on transporting petroleum in bulk and being able to keep their products mobile. All of our fuel and refining products are on our base. We support a base. The Army supports regions,” said Air Force Senior Master Sgt. Nathan D. McCoy, fuel superintendent on Ramstein. “I like the Army mobile (petroleum) lab concept and what they bring to the fight. As we move into more joint operations, both the Air Force and Army will benefit from each service’s unique capabilities.” The 240th QM Co. also showcased several vehicles and pieces of technology for their Air Force counterparts. The highlights included a 600-gallonper-hour reverse osmosis water purification unit, a mobile fueling tank, a mobile refrigeration unit and a palletized load system vehicle. The Soldiers of the 240th QM Co. also demonstrated their expeditionary transportation capabilities by loading the refrigera-

tion unit onto the PLS within a matter of seconds. “This company (240th QM Co.) has a very broad scope of capabilities. From a logistics standpoint, we cover a wide variety of areas,” said Capt. Michael D. Murphy, 240th QM Co. commander. “It is very beneficial for our Air Force counterparts to see how our Soldiers and their equipment operate.” The professional development session concluded with a tour of the 240th QM Co. Supply Support Activity, giving insight to Army supply and warehouse operations. As the visit came to a close, service

members from both branches expressed a desire to continue inter-service exchanges like this one. “This visit built a stronger bridge between the Air Force logistics community and the Army,” said Air Force Capt. Kenneth Negron, material management flight commander for the 86th Logistics Readiness Squadron. “These opportunities give us a better understanding of how we might operate together. In the future we would like to have some Army logisticians come out to Ramstein Air Base and see how we conduct our operations.”

Looking for a career challenge? by Master Sgt. Mary Current and Master Sgt. Jennifer Shelley 86th Airlift Wing Staff Legal Office Interested in retraining? Looking for a challenge? The paralegal career field may be for you. The paralegal career field puts you in the courtroom assisting Air Force attorneys. The primary mission of a paralegal is to assist attorneys in providing legal support to commanders, first sergeants and other key personnel on a broad spectrum of matters. Responsibilities of a paralegal include military justice administration, administrative boards, accident and collateral investigations, estate planning, tax assistance, and other legal matters. Airmen wanting to retrain can find out more about the 5J career field through the Air Force Enlisted Classification Directory Part II. To access the directory online, log into “myPers” and search “AFECD.” To view the retraining advisory online, log into the “vMPF,” “Self Service Actions,” “Retraining” and then click the “Request Retraining” link. All applicants must also be interviewed by base legal office leadership. If selected for retraining, SEQUESTRATION, from Page 2

Force is not sufficiently ready for a high-end fight,” she said. To balance the readiness of today with the modernization of tomorrow, the Air Force’s proposed budget requests an increase in end strength to 492,000 active-duty, Guard and Reserve Airmen. The extra dollars will also be invested in missioncritical infrastructure; intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance; vital space programs; cyber teams; the nuclear enterprise; and the KC-46 Pegasus, F-35 Lightning II and the Long-Range Strike Bomber. “My pride in this Air Force and the Airmen who give it life hasn’t changed. My concern has,” Welsh said. “The capability gap that separates our Air Force from others is narrowing, and as it does, the asymmetric advantage that airpower provides the United States military is shrinking.” The general explained modernization isn’t an option — it must be done, and he and the secretary asked Congress to help by lifting sequestration. “Our short-term readiness recovery will stall, our long-term infrastructure investment will remain

a dream, we’ll be forced to recommend dramatic fleet reductions and modernization will be further delayed, allowing our adversaries to be able to further close that capability gap,” he said. “You understand it’s an ugly picture. We just want to make it clear.” The Air Force recognizes the financial strain on the U.S. government and has cost savings throughout the proposed budget to alleviate the strain. “We get it in the United States Air Force that we have to treat the American taxpayers’ money as precious and we can’t afford to waste a single dollar of it,” James said. “We’re working hard to make every dollar count.” The Air Force is driving steadily toward auditability and it has taken a 20 percent reduction in funding at headquarters levels. The Airmen Powered by Innovation initiative has also turned up savings, and the Air Force is still looking for the best ideas from Airmen who do the job every day. “We understand that we must be part of the nation’s solution to the debt problem and we’re ready to do that,”

Airmen will attend the paralegal apprentice course for six weeks at the Judge Advocate General School in Maxwell Gunter Air Force Base, Alabama. While at technical training, Airmen will obtain the basic skills required to work at a base legal office, such as preparing and processing claims; interviewing techniques; knowledge of legal procedures concerning military courts and boards; legal terminology and interpretations; research and use of legal publications; civil law matters; and office management. Finally, if interested in pursuing the legal field beyond the Air Force, Airmen could apply for their American Bar Association certification upon completion of their Community College of the Air Force degree in the paralegal career field. Obtaining the certificate will assist you when applying as a paralegal in a civilian law firm. Being a paralegal can be rewarding for individuals looking for a career that gives them independence in their work, personal growth and, most importantly, a sense of accomplishment at the end of the day. For more information, contact Master Sgt. Mary Current, 86th Airlift Wing Legal Office superintendent, or Master Sgt. Jennifer Shelley at 86AW. JA@ramstein.af.mil.

Welsh said. “We need your help in some areas so that we can be ready for today’s fight and still be able to win in 2025 and beyond.” Both James and Welsh agree America’s Airmen are what makes the Air Force what it is today, and they have been performing to the highest level, but they are being spread too thin. The operations tempo, coupled with decrease to critical infrastructure that gets Airmen and units combat ready, have taken their toll on Airmen and their families. “If sequestration remains the law of the land, it will get worse,” James said. “Sequestration needs to be lifted permanently for the whole of government.”

Ramstein Airman named best Top AF senior enlisted leader testifies on AF Air Force clinical nurse specialist quality of life issues

he busiest aeromedical squadron in Europe is also the home to one of the best Air Force medical corps Airmen. Lt. Col. Marilyn Thomas, 86th Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron clinical nurse specialist, won the 2014 Air Force Medical Service Clinical Nurse Specialist Award, which is given to Airmen who made significant contributions to their units or the Air Force as a whole. “I am very thankful and humbled to receive this award,” Thomas said. “I had a little bit of disbelief when I found out. It feels really good to be recognized for all the hard work, because it’s a lot of hard work, hours and commitment. It’s nice to be recognized for that.” Thomas spent part of 2014 deployed leading a 64member team at the busiest

aeromedical evacuation unit in Southwest Asia. During her time deployed, the team evacuated more than 1,500 patients in 112 missions. Afterward, she became a go-to leader for the 86th AES by training deployers, writing two clinical practice guidelines and ensuring proficiency of the squadron as an examiner. She also carried out her regular job as a flight nurse, leading 13 flyers and completing 11 trans-Atlantic

missions. “When I think of Lt. Col. Thomas, I think of a mentor and a great leader,” said Capt. Ashley Stansbery, 86th AES flight nurse. “She is my go-to person in the squadron. She is amazing. It’s definitely a great asset to our squadron for her to be able to share her knowledge and have a great open door policy.” Thomas took the skills she See AWARD, Page 13

WASHINGTON — The top enlisted leaders representing each service testified about quality of life issues in the military during a hearing of the House Appropriations Committee, Subcommittee on Military Construction and Veteran’s Affairs Feb. 25 in Washington, D.C. Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force James A. Cody answered questions about current quality of life issues within the Air Force. The testimony focused on the looming possibility of sequestration and how it would affect Airmen and their families in areas such as health and wellness, benefits, infrastructure and the uncertainty of future recruiting and retention. “We’ve had to let good Airmen go before their desired time,” Cody said. “When I came in 30-plus years ago, when you were a good Airmen and you worked hard you had the opportunity to serve 20 years and you didn’t have to worry about that. But today, there is the uncertainty in the future of their ability to serve. Today the Air Force is the smallest Air Force since our inception.” A primary priority of the Air Force leadership is to take care of its people. Active-duty component saw a substantial decrease in end strength, dropping from 327,600 at the start of fiscal year 2014 to 312,980 at the start of fiscal 2015. At the same time, global demands and geopolitical realities made it clear the need to halt further force reduction initiatives. “The Air Force faced a significant challenge last year as we went through a period of force drawdown,” Cody said. “Yet despite the stress our Airmen continue to serve proudly. We are committed to providing the best support possible to build and maintain ready and resilient Airmen and families. Leveraging the enlisted core with continuing education — both military and civilian — that implores strategic thinking was another topic among the service’s senior enlisted leaders. “Every Airman is an important investment,” Cody said. “These developmental opportunities provide the foundation for robust recruitment and retention, and solidify our Airmen’s professional capabilities. Our focused efforts produce highly skilled and highly effective Airmen who are well prepared to contribute to our nation’s defense and equipped for professional life after they’ve served our nation.” Cody then referenced the legislation the committee provides to protect and support Airmen and their benefits given to them by the Air Force such as the Air Force Airman and Family Care Program which offers financial planning, family readiness, support for exceptional family members, transition assistance and more. “These programs directly support resiliency and readiness of our Airmen and their families.” he said. Another quality of life topic Cody highlighted in his written statement was the Air Force’s need to improve infrastructure. “The Air Force has dormitories that do not meet quality of life standards,” Cody said. “If Congress supports the President’s Budget request, the Air Force will be able to invest $62 million to build new dormitories around the Air Force. We must keep faith in the American people (by taking care of our Airmen).”

he vow to put service before self can sometimes promote the necessity of resilience. One Airman at Ramstein Air Base practices resilience each day to help guide Airmen to success. As a career assistance adviser, Master Sgt. Etienne Tousignant, 786th Force Support Squadron, uses his life lessons to advise Ramstein Airmen on potentially life-changing decisions, one-on-one and at professional development seminars. Tousignant is responsible for helping develop more than 8,000 Airmen through individual counseling and advising commanders and superintendents on retention issues. With his reach, he is key to the development of front-line supervisors. By providing education on re-enlisting and retraining opportunities, he ensures Airmen understand their benefits and entitlements. Through his role as a career adviser, Tousignant also aids the 786th FSS by assisting in the dissemination of personnel programs and new guidance to the base populace.

Staff Sgt. Myra Melendez, Ramstein Airman Leadership School instructor, said Tousignant not only deals with Airmen on a one-on-one basis, but he also teaches the value of resilience through the First Term Airman Center program and professional enhancement and informed decision seminars. “Sometimes we have bad days that get us down,” Melendez said. “Tousignant is a testament of not letting those bad days keep you down. He always bounces back and finds a way to turn negative situations into positive learning experiences. He humbly shares his story to remind Airmen that anyone, regardless of rank and age, can overcome hardships in life.” Tousignant had a rough start during his adolescence, which taught him the value of resilience and how to grow in the face of adversity. “I made a lot of bad choices, some criminal,” he said. “I don’t know what I did or said, but my parents and friends still believed in me. They still gave me opportunities to succeed.

experiences to make him a person that can relate to people, he said. “When people walk in, I can be empathetic,” Tousignant said. “Everyone has potential, and I want to help. If I can’t, I want to point them in the right direction.” His outreach can be attested to by Airmen who have personally thanked him for sharing his positive outlook, Tousignant said. “I have people approach me on and off base,” he said. “When they talk to me and tell me how advisory events

have helped them, it motivates me to continue to help. I had someone tell me they stayed in the Air Force because of a seminar.” Tousignant plans to continue to share his outlook to remind Airmen that anyone, regardless of rank and age, can overcome hardships in life. “Whether I wear a uniform or not, I just want to continue to help people on any scale and be a part of a community that helps others,” he said.

Birthday bash marks Scouting anniversary The 2015 edition of the annual Blue and Gold (the Cub Scout colors) banquet at Vogelweh Elementary School commemorated the 105th anniversary of the founding of the Boy Scouts of America and the Cub Scouts program’s 85th birthday, Feb. 22. The cafeteria transformed into a banquet hall and parents transformed into artists, auctioneers and chefs. More than 100 Cub Scouts came to celebrate along with a few special guests, adult volunteers and family members from Pack 69. The banquet also served as a bear of a pack meeting as leaders and parents recognized the Scouts’ formal accession to their current rank and achievements during the first six months of the Scouting year. Parents marked their Scouts’ accomplishments and commitment with face paints and, for the

artistically inclined, paw prints. For WEBELOS, the banquet marked the culmination of a five-year Scouting journey alongside “Akela," a personification of the Scouts’ mentors based on a character in Rudyard Kipling’s, “The Jungle Book.” The pack powwow included the typical mix of ceremonial, educational and lighthearted activities. Scouts designed unique table decorations representing their dens. Some Scouts and families even brought along building blocks displays and stuffed animals, including a gigantic baby shark serving as an aquatic den mascot. Organizers also auctioned a variety of sweets and gift baskets to raise money for the pack with Scouts taking a keen interest in the bidding on cakes, pastries, chocolates, outdoor gear and toys. A WEBELOS den leader

and designer of a squad car that competed in last month’s Pinewood Derby issued “speeding citations” to Scouts in recognition of the swiftness of their wooden vehicles during the race. In a nod to recent carnival activities, several Scouts and sisters donned paper masks as the banquet drew to a close. Hunter Marks, assistant district commissioner of the Barbarossa District and the pack’s higher Scouting headquarters, participated in the event, offering words of wisdom and presiding over the Arrow of Light Ceremony, which embodies Cub Scouting’s highest honor and marks the culmination of WEBELOS’ tenure as Cub Scouts. “This celebration re-energizes the boys, the parents and the adult volunteers to continue on to the end of the Cub Scout year and also encour-

ages everyone to remain actively involved in the Boy Scouts of America next year,” Marks said. “Because February or March is also a common time for the oldest Cub Scouts (fifth-graders or second-year WEBELOS) to move on to the Boy Scout

program, the Blue and Gold banquet is often a farewell to these boys as they journey on to becoming young men in their quest to reach the Eagle Scout summit. I commend all of the boys in Pack 69 on See SCOUTS, Page 18

Enlisted leaders attend symposium on Ramstein Story and photos by Staff Sgt. Sara Keller 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


nlisted leaders from air forces throughout Europe visited Ramstein Feb. 23 to 27 to attend the Kaiserslautern Military Community First Sergeant Council’s First Sergeant Symposium along with 120 Airmen from around the KMC. Chief master sergeant equivalents and one first sergeant from seven nations, including chief master sergeants of the Estonian, Romanian and Slovak air forces, attended the four-day symposium, which focused on giving technical and master sergeants a true image of a first sergeant’s duties. For the international visitors, it was an up-close look at a position most of their air forces don’t yet have. During the annual event, a variety of topics were covered, including how to handle physical fitness, financial, domestic violence and legal issues within a unit. There was also a first sergeants’ panel where attendees had the opportunity to ask seasoned first sergeants questions and a chiefs’ panel to provide a perspective on life after first sergeant duty. “The symposium allows (the attendees) to see what we actually do,” said Master Sgt. Zamanta Triche, the 721st Aircraft Maintenance Squadron first sergeant. “Most people just know that the first sergeant will fix it. They don’t see all the stuff we might do in the background, but this event gives them the opportunity to get a realistic look at how we do it.” Although this is only the second year for the informative symposium, the chief master sergeant of the Estonian air force, or Staabiveebel Janis Jallai, was able to attend once again. “Returning for the second time has given me a much clearer vision and understanding of the first

The group of enlisted leaders including the chief master sergeant of the Romanian and Estonian air forces and other leaders from the German, Italian, Slovenian and the United Kingdom’s air forces, visited Ramstein before attending the KMC First Sergeant Council’s First Sergeant Symposium.

sergeant position and how it benefits people,” Jallai said. “The Estonian air force does not actually have the first sergeant position, so after everything I’ve learned here I feel it could be a very good tool for us.” Jallai is not only the chief master sergeant of the Estonian air force, he is also the first one. Coming to a symposium like this allows him to absorb the lessons he’s learned to possibly implement them in his own service. Before the symposium, the group of chiefs visited and learned about work centers, like the 24th Intelligence Squadron, to get an idea of the types of responsibilities Airmen in the U.S. Air Force perform every day, as well as the Airman leadership school and NCO academy to better understand how Airmen develop through professional military education. “I think (an experience) like this is a give and take,” Triche said. “At first I was thinking we just had the opportunity to showcase what we do here in the U.S. Air Force and our roles as first sergeants, but now I realize that I’m learning a lot more from them than I could ever teach A group of enlisted leaders from six different nations’ air forces throughout Europe attend them.” the KMC First Sergeant Council’s First Sergeant Symposium Feb. 26 at Einsiedlerhof. After experiencing an

event like this and learning not only from the first sergeants and chiefs, but also from his fellow classmates, Jallai said one of the main lessons he would like to take back with him is the importance of taking care of people. “I would really like to implement more training on personnel issues,” Jallai said. “I would like to see my NCOs gain more knowledge on counseling techniques and practices. I know that my NCOs may not have the right tools, so I would love to enable them to learn more about dealing with personnel issues. I would also like to implement family care plans because it’s not something we do, but I see the enormous benefit in it.” There are currently over 300,000 Airmen serving in the U.S. Air Force. The Estonian air force is growing and now has over 350 airmen. Jallai explained that although their air force is small and they don’t have the first sergeant position, they do have a position that is similar. When he returns, he’s going to mesh some of the aspects he said he liked with the position that already exists to fit what his air force needs. Next year, the first sergeants hope to open the event to even more people to enlighten future first sergeants and invite enlisted leaders from allied nation’s back. “I would love to have some of my guys be able to attend this next year,” Jallai said. “I’m amazed by the attitudes of the first sergeants. It’s clear how deeply they go and how much emotion they put into their work and people, and I would like for my people to experience that.”

Postal services deliver peace of mind Story and photo by Senior Airman Timothy Moore 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Dealing with mail can be a nerveracking experience. Will it arrive on time? Will it be safe? What if it’s lost? With these questions in mind, the 86th Communications Squadron postal specialists do their part to make sure parcels are delivered efficiently and safely. “A lot of people look at our job as just mail, but it’s bigger than that,” said Master Sgt. Jack Lloyd, 86th CS Northside Post Office postmaster. “Mail improves morale for the people stationed here.” Lloyd makes this connection considering military members often look forward to mail when they are away from family and friends. The majority of the packages that come through Ramstein’s Northside Post Office are personal. However, postal specialists also handle official mail — parcels that are addressed to units, first sergeants or commanders. With both personal and official mail, the Northside Post Office handles approximately 8 million pounds of parcels annually, making it the larg-

est postal operation in the Department of Defense. Additionally, the finance department of the Northside Post Office, which handles anything that involves money, such as selling stamps and sending mail, generates approximately $4 million every year. These numbers may not be surpris-

ing as the post office serves the entire KMC, the largest U.S. military community outside of the U.S. With such a large customer base, even the dedicated postal specialists at the Northside Post Office require some help. “Volunteering is a very big deal,” said Airman 1st Class Michael Parshall, 86th CS postal specialist.

“We’d love as many volunteers as we can get to work as many hours as they would like.” Volunteers can help postal specialists by sorting and pitching mail to personal boxes, unloading the mail truck and manning the pickup windows. Lloyd said this allows the postal specialist to handle the more technical aspects, such as processing. Recently, the Northside Post Office was authorized to have volunteers year-round though they were previously used only during the holiday season. “If anybody wants to volunteer, they can just show up and we’ll square them away,” Lloyd said. While the primary reason for assisting the postal specialist may be to lighten the workload, some members of the postal services team also believe it has its added benefits. “It would open a lot of people’s eyes when they see what we do,” Parshall said. “It’s a wonderful job. If you have the opportunity to come down, you should definitely try it.” If you would like to do your part in delivering some peace of mind or just want more information about the postal services, stop by the Northside Post Office in Bldg. 426.

US, NATO partners meet to discuss mental health, MTBI issues


ilitary medical and behavioral health specialists from 10 NATO countries met Feb. 24 and 25 in Germany for a Mental Health and Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Workshop in Landstuhl Regional Medical Center. The workshop allowed experts from several NATO countries to speak on topics such as pre-deployment mental health screening procedures used by the Romanian military and manage MTBI for U.S. service members and their families. The event allowed allied nations to share information and ideas about what different military medical systems are doing in the mental health and MTBI arenas, said Lt. Col. Graeme Bicknell, behavioral health division director for Europe Regional Medical Command. “This is an opportunity for us to put our best foot forward,” Bicknell said. “It’s an opportunity for us to talk about the best practices among our allies. It helps us better understand each other and know what we bring to the fight. It also helps us to understand

the cultural differences (as they apply to mental health and MTBI issues).” Workshop attendees came from the U.S., Germany, Hungary, Great Britain, Belgium, Romania, France, Czech Republic, Estonia and Lithuania. The idea for the workshop came from discussions between Brig. Gen Van Coots, ERMC commander, and his counterparts in the German army medical corps. “We asked what our allies would like to talk about and most said mental health and TBI,” Bicknell said. “We arranged for some of the best qualified speakers from the United States and invited our NATO allies as well.” The U.S. military medical system has advanced considerably in their understanding and treatment of these issues based on experiences gained through almost 14 years of war, Bicknell said, but sharing knowledge gained by other countries is helpful as well. Most of those attending the workshop agreed. “It was a great way to learn about

current and innovative research being conducted by NATO forces and the U.S. Department of Defense,” said Capt. Rachel Wiley, counseling psychologist at LRMC. Wiley said that participants were also provided with clinical recommendations they can use in their practice. “Mental health and MTBI are serious topics for service members,

and we need to know more and be able to treat them better, earlier and with better results,” said Dr. Stefan Kropp, an attendee representing the German army reserves. Kropp said he viewed the workshop as an “ongoing discussion” for the way ahead in how the military treats mental health and MTBI. (Courtesy of Europe Regional Medical Command)

SCOUTS, from Page 11 their accomplishments, encourage them to always do your best, and challenge them to always journey on through the adventure of life.” Local leaders expressed similar enthusiasm for the event. “What a great way to continue a legacy of a great program — 105 years of building characters and character in our boys,” said Maj. Michael J. Swienton, 21st Theater Sustainment Command, senior pack leader. “The founders of this movement couldn’t have imagined how it would take off. I think it’s pretty awesome. “Doing the event as Americans overseas, maybe we can appreciate even more the expanse of our council and the scope of the Scouting program across Europe,” he continued. “Many different countries participate in Scouting — and all from a pretty similar base philosophy and action. This was a great event and a big success. It was appropriate to see rays of sunshine literally shining through the cafeteria windows during the event.” The banquet held special meaning for Michael Stricker, leader of the senior Scouters participating in their last event with Pack 69. “It was nice to have so many of the kids stick together for at least a couple of years,” Stricker said. “It allowed them to build really strong relationships and good friendships. I got a little teary-eyed as we went through the narrative in the ceremony and I thought of everything we’ve been through over the last four years. “We’ve experienced a lot of great things and seen a lot of places in Europe, but the main thing is the people,” Stricker continued. “That’s one great thing about the Scouting program overseas; it brings the community together.” WEBELOS also reflected on their tenure as Cub Scouts and their future as Boy Scouts. “I learned a lot of things in Cub Scouts,” said Emory Michael Watson, 9. “The most valuable thing was how to save people’s lives — how to do the Heimlich maneuver, stop bleeding and frost bite, and treat bee stings. I feel happy to be a Scout, because I can do things like campouts and those kinds of outdoor activities.” Other WEBELOS emphasized the unique opportunities they enjoyed in Europe. “It was great to participate in all the activities, especially the trips to Normandy and Brussels and all the travel,” said Mark Brandon, 10, son of a 21st TSC exercise planner. “We traveled to so many places for the historical trails. It was also great to make a lot of friends and participate in all the pack events. The Cub-Annapolis was the best, and we were the winners this year.” Brandon expressed optimistic but reasonable expectations for his Boy Scout career. “I hope we can have more fun and learn more things,” he said. Younger Scouts looked forward to more pack adventures, picnics and races. “My favorite part is traveling,” said Tiger Cub Michael Ray Vandeway, 7. “I like to travel on the Scouting trips, and plus my family likes to travel a lot. My other favorite event is the Raingutter Regatta because I got second place.” “My favorite thing about Scouting is we have so much fun and do so many things,” said William Pickel, 8, of the Wolf Den. “I hope Cub Scouts never ends, because it’s so fun being a Cub Scout.” (Courtesy of 21st Theater Sustainment Command)

KHS culinary team chops up competition by Ikea Simmonds Kaiserserslautern High School


he Kaiserslautern High School culinary team will head to Disneyland. The five-person team outcooked the competition during the Department of Defense Dependents Schools Europe-sponsored Culinary Fair Feb. 25 at KHS. The home team diced, chopped and sliced their way to a trip to the national high school competition to be held later this year in Anaheim, California. KHS senior Quatia Thompson, a member of the winning team, couldn’t contain her excitement after the judges tallied up all the points and revealed the results. “We won! We’re going to nationals,” she screamed. Teams representing Ramstein, Vilseck and Wiesbaden, Germany, as well as Naples, Italy, kept the kitchen humming during the one-day competition. For the KHS team, the winning menu consisted of an appetizer dish of tuna and salmon sushi covered with a raspberry ginger sauce alongside a bok choy salad and an entree of sauteed beef tenderloin with sweet potato chips, brussels sprouts and a red pomegranate vinaigrette. The menu was topped off by a dessert of mint chocolate mousse with coconut and coffee ganaches. The culinary competition takes place annually

in February with teams competing from different high schools from all over Europe. The teams have to prepare an appetizer, entree and dessert in just one hour. All the competitors can use to prepare the meal is a stove top and hand-held equipment — nothing electronic. Also, multiple professional judges scrutinize every move while competitors cook. “We are fortunate to have all professional chefs this year as judges,” said Dr. Mary Leonhart, coordinator of this year’s culinary fair and an instructional systems specialist for the DODDS-E Bavaria Office. The resumes of the judges certainly were impressive. One in particular, David West, is an executive

chef at the Ramstein Officers’ Club. He said he began cooking at the age of 6, learning from his mother and grandmother. Those lessons led him to over 50 years in the culinary business. West said everyone in the kitchen was knowledgeable and had talent beyond their years. “Everybody is a winner,” he said. “Culinary art is one of the best professions, but you have to have passion, and I see that in all of the kids here today.” Before the Kaiserslautern team even stepped into the kitchen, they exuded confidence. “First place is what we are bringing home today. Nothing less,” said Tara Gentz, captain of the KHS team. Jacob Caballero, another KHS team member, said the team was much more prepared this year than last year. The team took fifth place last year. Andrew Dager, known around school simply as “Chef,” has been the KHS culinary program coordinator for the past three years. He said he was beyond ecstatic when his team came out on top. “This team is awesome,” he said. “I know they are going to do great at nationals.” Members of the KHS Culinary Team are: Gentz, Caballero, Thompson, Stephen Richardson and Charlie Thalamnn. The team is now off to cook against other teams at Disneyland. “There are no words to describe how I feel,” Thompson said. “The hard work was all worth it. I am beyond happy.”

Project Almanac When a group of friends discover plans for a time machine, they build it and use it to fix their problems at personal gain. But as the future falls apart with disasters, and each of them disappear little by little, they must travel back to the past to make sure they never invent the machine or face the destruction of humanity. Starring Sofia Black-D’Elia, Ginny Gardner

Chappie Every child comes into the world full of promise, and none more so than Chappie: He is gifted, special, a prodigy. Like any child, Chappie will come under the influence of his surroundings — some good, some bad — and he will rely on his heart and soul to find his way in the world and become his own man. But there’s one thing that makes Chappie different from anyone else: He is a robot. He is the first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself. His life, his story, will change the way the world looks at robots and humans forever. Starring Sharlto Copley, Dev Patel
