Training certifies Airmen Story and photos by Airman Dymekre Allen 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

Staff Sgt. Samuel Walker, 435th Contingency Response Group specialist, ties a copper wire around a metal post to provide electricity to a tent during indoctrination training Feb. 24 on Ramstein.

The 435th Contingency Response Group conducted a group-level indoctrination training event Feb. 24 to 28. Managed by the 435th Air Mobility Squadron, the event was held to prepare service members to provide mission support to U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa areas of responsibility. The five-day training allowed all 435th CRG and AMS Airmen to become certified to handle any situation in the field. The training included multiple deployment responsibilities, including driving vehicles, giving adequate radio communications

information and building forward operating bases. “We are a very versatile group,” said Staff Sgt. Alexis EffingerMorris, 435th CRG specialist. “We have to be able to do everything and anything that’s asked of us or it could potentially hinder the mission.” The group is composed of specialists from different squadrons who give their expertise as well as learn the skills from other members. This provides them with a wide range of knowledge and allows them to be an effective fighting force. “There’s so much we can learn from each other,” Effinger-Morris said. “The more we communicate and train together the more we are prepared for the

operations we conduct downrange.” According to CRG and AMS Airmen, the hands-on aspect of the training seemed to be the most effective. “Being able to learn in a hands-on environment helps not only myself, but the whole team,” said Senior Airman Matthew Agres, 435th CRG specialist. “The easiest way to learn is having the

instructors right there with you guiding you in the right direction.” At the end of the training, members take a course review to test the knowledge they’ve gained throughout the week. With this training, members of the 435th CRG and AMS gain insight on their deployed capabilities and build adaptable Airmen.

Soldier re-enlists while recuperating from war injury


n the aftermath of being shot during a firefight in Afghanistan, several thoughts came to Staff Sgt. Tyronne Jones’ mind — among them was re-enlistment. Sadly, the date and location were not the only things that changed that day. Chief Warrant Officer 2 Edward

Balli was supposed to conduct Jones’ re-enlistment ceremony at their forward operating base in Afghanistan. Balli died beside Jones in that same firefight Jan. 20 against enemy insurgents who penetrated their compound through a hole from a massive explosion. Instead, Jones was re-enlisted by Lt. Gen. Donald M. Campbell Jr., commanding general of U.S. Army Europe, in a Feb. 19 ceremony at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center

before his wife and two children and fellow Soldiers from his home station in Vilseck, Germany. Although Jones is a career Soldier who planned to re-enlist, the deadly attack only firmed his resolve. “I don’t want to let somebody else dictate when my career is going to be over,” said Jones, a 30-year-old unmanned aircraft technician who was deployed with the 2nd Cavalry


Service members should take part in the annual Overseas Housing Allowance survey at www.defensetravel.dod.mil/site/oha-util-mar.cfm until March 31 to ensure they receive the right amount of money for their living quarters.

Compound interest is free money by Lt. Col. Jobie S. Turner 37th Airlift Squadron commander Albert Einstein, the greatest scientific mind of the 20th century said, “Compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world. He who understands it, earns it. He who doesn’t, pays it.” In other words, compound interest is free money. For example, if you are an E-1 and save 5 percent of your base pay each month, $74 ($37 every two weeks), your savings will grow to $40,000 at the end of 20 years. The most amazing part is you will only have saved $20,000 during that time, but through the magic of compound interest it will have doubled in value. This is $20,000 in free money. Even better, the current example assumes you are an E-1 your entire service (highly unlikely). Therefore, the potential exists for all military members to retire with at least six figures

($100,000 or more) without much sacrifice. Now this approach sounds easy, but only if you plan ahead and make it easy on yourself. First, you have to actually save. In other words, setup an automatic withdrawal from your accounts into a savings fund or into a program like the Thrift Savings Program. Pay yourself first, and then pay your other bills. The TSP is great because we have easy access to it from work, and it even lowers your tax rate. For every dollar you save, you pay less in taxes, allowing you to save even more. Free money once again. Second, you have to be patient. Your money saved will move painfully slow over the first few years, but before you know it, you’ll have a good amount put away. Third, you have to be consistent. If you get discouraged or decide not to save each month, you’ll only slow the process. It is better to con-

sistently invest small amounts than to try and catch-up with larger amounts later. The key to compound interest is time. With all this talk of E-1 pay and 20 years time, many of us are well beyond this age and may or may not have saved enough for ourselves. However, the same magic of compound interest applies — it’s never too late to start. Even five years of dedicated savings with a modest return (say 6 percent) can produce healthy sums. Free money abounds. These examples are only a few simple thoughts on saving and investing. The Department of Defense has set up a great website called www.militarysaves.org. This site contains information on getting savings started and includes hundreds of links to financial institutions and calculators for you to plan your future. I encourage you to go to the website and find your free money.

AFAF helps in time of need by 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

Senior leaders and key personnel from Ramstein attended this year’s Air Force Assistance Fund “Sharing four Caring” campaign kickoff Monday. The goal of the kickoff was to raise support for four charitable affiliates that provide assistance to Air Force families in need. The event allowed one Airman to speak about her experience with the fund and how it helped her throughout her life. “One of my first experiences with the Air Force Aid Society was before I even joined the military,” said Tech. Sgt. Tabatha Bennett, 1st Combat Communications Squadron wing communication security manager. “I was living with my husband in Turkey where he was stationed, and

we received a call that his father was diagnosed with brain cancer. We knew we had to fly to California but at the time we didn’t have enough money so we looked into the AFAS and through them we received an interest-free loan to pay for the plane tickets.” Years later Bennett and her husband would undergo another tragic time in their life where they would need financial assistance. “After I just joined the Air Force we received news that I was pregnant,” Bennett said. “Of course it was a joyous time in our life but during the pregnancy we had lost the baby. Still having to deliver, we were emotionally drained and with no money for a burial service we didn’t know what to do. “Then we got a call from my first sergeant at the time saying he had

talked with the AFAS and they were going to give us $5,000 to pay for everything,” Bennett continued. “It’s impossible to express how thankful we are for everything they have done for us throughout our lives.” All the organizations of AFAF focus on different ways to assist Air Force members and their families. Whether helping widows during times of financial crisis or paying for a plane ticket home during emotional turmoil, AFAF is there to help lighten the burden for those in need. “It’s as simple as taking care of our own,” said Capt. Lyka Olsen, 86th Comptroller Squadron financial analyst and AFAF installation campaign project officer. “It is a great opportunity to be a part of something big that could affect every Airman in the Air Force.”

The four charitable affiliates that Airmen can donate to are: • Air Force Aid Society, which provides emergency assistance to Airmen and their families, and sponsors education and quality of life programs in communities. • Air Force Enlisted Village, which provides homes for surviving spouses of retired enlisted Airmen. • Air Force Villages, a retirement community that cares for retired Air Force officer widows who need financial assistance. • The Gen. and Mrs. Curtis LeMay Foundation, which awards grants to retired Airmen and their spouses in financial need. The campaign runs until April. 11. For information, contact your unit’s AFAF representative or visit www. afassistancefund.org.

Airfield managers oversee operations Story and photos by Senior Airman Jose L. Leon 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs As the military hub of European operations, it is imperative the airfield on Ramstein is managed with the attention to detail provided by the 86th Operations Support Squadron airfield management flight. The flight’s office is manned 24/7 to maintain operational readiness and ensure flightline operations are safe. Airfield managers are responsible for filing flight plans, inspecting the airfield for damage, emergency response, issuing flightline driver’s licenses and coordinating between aircrew in the air and on the ground. The flight works with approximately 15 other organizations on base to maintain airfield operations. “Our role is primarily to be managers,” said Senior Airman John Kalilikane, 86th OSS airfield management shift lead. “We have to know the ins and outs of everything about the airfield. Being knowledgeable in every aspect of the airfield makes us proficient in keeping it safe and operational.” Airmen from the airfield management flight have to be able to recognize discrepancies, such as breakage and deterioration of the concrete to malfunctioning or blurred signs. Once discovered, discrepancies must then be reported to the appropriate organization in order for them to be corrected. “Going outside of our office and getting handson work with the airfield is my favorite part of the job,” said Airman 1st Class Taylor Starr, 86th OSS airfield management operations coordinator. “It’s a good job, and it definitely keeps us busy.” Airfield inspections are completed several times a shift and are key to ensuring agencies are able to perform their duty in a safe environment. “Construction is a huge thing here in the summertime,” Kalilikane said. “We might have anywhere around 20 different construction activities.” Airfield management is responsible for overcoming the obstacle of directing operations

around sites under construction. Starr said if the checks are not performed as often as they are, the chances for something to go wrong would greatly increase. The airfield management flight’s ability to disseminate the information that passes through their hands is crucial in the everyday operation of the Air Force. Every aircraft needs an airfield to land, and airfield managers are there to ensure it is clear of any hazards. Aircraft do not move on the Ramstein airfield without the airfield management flight’s approval. Ramstein’s capability to maintain operations at the pace it is at can be attributed in part to the flight’s ability to sustain a safe airfield.

AFA scholarship

The Air Force Association has re-named their spouse scholarship, The Mike and Gail Donley Spouse Scholarship, as a lasting tribute to the former secretary of the Air Force and his wife. The scholarship is designed to encourage Air Force spouses worldwide to pursue associate, bachelor or graduate/postgraduate degrees. The AFA would like to award one scholarship to each of the Air Force Major Commands and possibly to spouses of Airmen who are not currently assigned to a MAJCOM depending on the quality and number of applications received. Recipients of this scholarship will be awarded $2,500, which may be used for any reasonable cost related

to pursuing a degree, including tuition, books, transportation or child care costs. Applications can be found on the AFA website at www.afa. org/SpouseScholarship. Complete packages are due to Lynette Cross, lcross@afa.org, no later than April 30.

86th CPTS info

• The Financial Services Flight offers customer service walk-in hours from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday to Friday. Airmen with pay or travel questions are encouraged to stop by for in-person customer service. • First sergeants received information on the new process of inputting emergency leave in DTS. Members will now file their emergency leave vouchers through DTS after they return from leave. The 86th Comptroller Squadron will still accept manual vouchers; however, submitting through DTS will result in a much faster voucher payment, since those vouchers do not have to route through CPTS or the Air Force Financial Services Center. • Every year, the Department of Defense conducts a survey to identify how much service members spent the previous year for utilities and move-in expenses. The data from this survey is used to determine utility and move-in allowances for our location. This survey will be available for all active-duty service members until March 31 at www.defensetravel.dod.mil/site/oha-util-mar. cfm. Maximum participation and good data are the keys to ensuring Airmen are compensated appropriately for their utilities costs.

In-service recruiter

Anybody who would like to transfer from active duty to the Air Force Reserve should contact Ramstein’s in-service recruiter, Master Sgt. Dominique Hogan, at 480-3940. Hogan will have information on the Palace Chase program for volunteers and explain the Reservist’s benefits, such as low cost health insurance and tuition assistance.

Europe-wide emergency number

The emergency number 112 is valid throughout Europe. It can be dialed free of cost and without a prefix in each European country.

CLEP-a-thon tester wins the race by Sara Pavich 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


ducation takes time. Students put years and money toward attaining the course credits necessary to earn a degree. In just four days, one Airman became 36 credits closer to earning his Community College of the Air Force degree. A College-Level Examination Program testing marathon, called CLEPa-thon, was facilitated by the Ramstein National Test Center Feb. 10 through 14 on Ramstein. From 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., service members were able to take unlimited CLEP and DSST tests in a variety of

course subjects. Testers were also able to sign up on a walkin basis, without the usual need for an appointment. A passing grade allows students to earn a specific number of credits toward their degree. Airman 1st Class Arius Gray, 83rd Network Operating Squadron Det 4 server technician, was the most successful tester to take part in the CLEP-a-thon. Out of the 12 exams he completed, Gray passed nine. The credits he earned enabled him to satisfy almost all his remaining degree requirements in the span of a few days. If Gray passes his final CLEP test, a speech exam taken at a separate time from the CLEPa-thon, he will have success-

fully earned a degree in computer sciences. Though the outcome justified the stress, Gray said the CLEP-a-thon was mentally exhausting. Gray completed all his exams by Feb. 13, but stayed at the testing center all day every day in order to make himself available for the exams he needed to take. “It was a little draining,” he said. “At the end of the week it was just a giant sigh of relief. I thought, ‘I’m done with tests for now.’” Gray chose to participate in the Ramstein CLEP-a-thon in order to complete the remaining credits in his CCAF degree. He said his desire to pursue an education is fueled by his interest in learning more about computers.

“Since my job is to manage servers, pretty much all I do is work with computers all day. The job experience, combined with whatever education I get or any classes I take, goes hand-in-hand, and it helps me do my job that much better.” Though he did not enter the Air Force with the plan to work in a computer-based field, Gray found the work appeals to his goals to further his education. He said working with computers provides him with a challenging and interesting work environment that requires a constant update of knowledge in the field. “There’s always something new to learn,” Gray said. “There’s no way to know

everything, because technology is constantly advancing, so you have to constantly advance with it. You have to keep current on your credentials.” Gray’s success stems from his motivation to pursue higher education throughout his life. “My plan is to keep my education going,” Gray said. “I don’t really want to stop at any point or let myself grow stagnant. From finishing up my CCAF, I’ve given myself an earlier start to a higher education.” Gray plans on immediately pursuing a bachelor’s degree in computer sciences and eventually hopes to obtain a doctorate, possibly in computer programming.

Kaiserslautern night bus gets passengers home safely by Petra Lessoing 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs SWK, the City Works of Kaiserslautern, offers the “Lautrer Nachtbus,” or Kaiserslautern night bus, as a service to help get people home at night and on weekends. SWK night buses run Friday and Saturday nights and on German holidays (except Good Friday). The nine night lines take passengers into all parts of the city and most surrounding communities, starting at 12:15 a.m. for three hours. “We made sure to have bus stops next to locations people like to visit at night, such as the Nachtschicht discotheque and the Kammgarn Culture Center,” said Andrea Oliver, SWK director of U.S. business. The night buses stop at each regular bus stop throughout Kaiserslautern. They also stop on demand. When on the night bus, passengers can also get off the bus outside of regular bus stops. “Just let the driver know ahead of time,” Oliver said. “If there are no safety issues, (the driver) will let passengers get off at the front door.” This rule also applies daily on all SWK bus lines starting at 8 p.m. The night bus routes are as follows: • Linie (line) N1: Siegelbach — Rodenbach —

Weilerbach (+ call taxi or Ruftaxi ) • Linie (line) N2: — Hauptbahnhof (main train station) — Casimirring — Betzenberg • Linie (line) N3: Dansenberg — Schopp — Krickenbach — Linden • Linie (line) N4: Bännjerrück — Hohenecken — Queidersbach — Bann • Linie (line) N6: Uni-Wohngebiet — Mölschbach — Stelzenberg — Trippstadt • Linie (line) N7: Fischerrück — Erzhütten — Kreuzhof — Erfenbach — Otterbach — Katzweiler • Linie (line) N10: Hochspeyer — Fischbach — Enkenbach-Alsenborn — Mehlingen (+ call taxi) • Linie (line) N12: Sonnenberg — Morlautern — Erlenbach — Otterberg — Baalborn — Sembach • Linie (line) N40: Grübentälchen — PRE-Park — Messeplatz “On some routes, SWK offers a special service: the ‘Ruftaxi,’ or call taxi,” Oliver said. “When boarding a bus that does not go to the passengers’ final destination, they should inform the driver right away. He will arrange a taxi for the connecting trip.” The tickets purchased for the night bus service are accepted for the taxi ride. For control purposes, passengers must present their night bus tickets to the taxi driver.

Call taxis are available … • From the bus stop “Am Belzappel” (stop near Vogelweh) to take passengers to Einsiedlerhof and Kindsbach. • In Weilerbach, near the Spar bus stop, to take passengers of the night line N1 to Erzenhausen, Eulenbis, Kollweiler, Mackenbach, Schwedelbach and Reichenbach-Steegen. • In Alsenborn center to take passengers from night line N10 to Neuhemsbach. Night buses start at 12:15 a.m. at the “Rathaus,” or city hall. Busses transport passengers for the next three hours; the last bus departs at 3:15 a.m. “We hope our American friends will accept this service as well. We try to help decrease the numbers of DUIs with our night bus,” Oliver said. Bus tickets within Kaiserslautern cost €2.20, tickets for Otterberg, Otterbach, Katzweiler, Rodenbach, Stelzenberg, Hochspeyer, Fischbach, Mehlingen, Baalborn and Kindsbach are €3.40, and tickets to Trippstadt, Weilerbach, Enkenbach-Alsenborn, Sembach, Bann, Queidersbach, Krickenbach, Linden and Schopp are €4. Passengers who own season tickets only have to pay an additional €1 for all locations.

AF midwives serve families abroad Story and photo by Sara Pavich 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs At only 17 years old, Capt. Syrah Nicaisse, Landstuhl Regional Medical Center certified nurse midwife, understood what she was meant to do with her life. As a volunteer at a hospital where her mother worked in the labor and delivery unit, she was always intrigued by the birth process. “I got to see women in labor, and I was able to see a midwife do a delivery, and that’s when a lightbulb went off,” she said. “I just knew that’s what I needed to do.” Nicaisse has dedicated her life to promoting healthy relationships between women and their bodies. As a certified nurse midwife, her job is to provide medical care and advice to women during their child-bearing years. Currently, there are 20 midwives serving in the Air Force. Three, Nicaisse, Capt. Lisa Murchison and Capt. Shenika Zebreski, provide their expertise in women’s health to service members and their families at LRMC. Service members and their families seek the help of midwives often because they desire to experience a more natural childbirth. Midwives work with physicians to help ensure the healthy delivery of a baby in a way that is most comfortable to the mother. Though a primary aspect of the work is to support women during pregnancy, delivery and postpartum stages, midwives are also trained to provide advice on general women’s health. Midwives work with patients and physicians to determine healthy options that do not conflict with the personal desires a woman may have in terms of her own health. “We take care of a woman as a whole,” Nicaisse said. “The main goal is to make her a part of the health care team. We encourage women to educate

themselves and empower them to make their own decisions about health care.” The passion for engaging with her patients on a personal level is one reason Nicaisse was drawn to the field. As an intern for a midwife during college, she witnessed the connections her mentor built with her patients during labor and delivery. Nicaisse said the creation of these bonds is what

makes her job so rewarding. “Being part of their (medical) team, we really become part of their family,” she said. “We’re there during the most intimate, vulnerable times of their lives, and they invite us in for that. It’s a privilege and an honor.” See midwife, Page 14

21st TSC recognizes new Sergeant Morales Club members by Staff Sgt. Warren W. Wright Jr. 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs


he 21st Theater Sustainment Command welcomed six new members into the Sergeant Morales Club during a ceremony Feb. 26 at the Kaiserslautern Community Activity Center on Daenner Kaserne. The inductees were Sgt. 1st Class Andray D. Gibson, 18th Engineer Brigade; Staff Sgt. Sean D. Graham, 18th Eng. Bde.; Staff Sgt. Fitho Simplice, 16th Sustainment Brigade; Staff Sgt. Jordan B. Stipp, 18th Military Police Brigade; Staff Sgt. Amber J. DeArmond, 21st TSC; and Sgt. Jasmen E. Williams, 16th Sust. Bde. The Sergeant Morales Club, which was established in 1973 by Lt. Gen. George S. Blanchard, consists of members who exemplify a special kind of leadership characterized by a

personal concern for the needs, training, development and welfare of their Soldiers. Maj. Gen. John R. O’Connor and Command Sgt. Maj. Rodney Rhoades, commanding general and command sergeant major of the 21st TSC, presided over the ceremony and presented the awardees with a Sergeant Morales Club certificate of membership along with the Army Commendation Medal. “It feels great to be inducted,” said Gibson, a sexual assault response coordinator with the 18th Eng. Bde. “I’ve been working on getting inducted into this club for the past year. It’s something that I’ve wanted to do, and I wanted to set the example for my Soldiers.” Some of the newly inducted NCOs credit their leadership for giving them the tools necessary to become successful NCOs. “I have had some great leaders in my career,” Gibson said. “This is

the kind of thing that they’ve pushed me to do, and for me to be a part of this has been a great accomplishment.” Stipp, a military policeman with the 18th MP Bde. said leadership and his Soldiers helped motivate him to go above and beyond and push himself. “Hopefully one day I can mentor somebody and they can come up here and do the same thing,” he said. Becoming a member of the Sergeant Morales Club is no easy task. NCOs have to commit countless hours of their free time in order to prepare for the long road to becoming a member. “The sergeants being inducted have gone through a rigorous process of studying long hours, countless uniforms inspections, multiple review boards and physical fitness tests all in pursuit to join this prestigious organization,” said Command Sgt. Maj.

Sean J. Rice, command sergeant major of Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion, U.S. Army Europe and the ceremony’s guest speaker. “The club promotes the highest ideas of integrity, professionalism and leadership for the enlisted force here in Europe. These individuals here today have done that and then some. “They decided to step up to the challenge to begin another call of duty,” he continued. Inductees believe hard work and a passion for helping Soldiers are the key traits of any potential future member. “Take care of your Soldiers, do your job, place your Soldiers first and live by the Army values,” Gibson said of NCOs wishing to become members. “If you live and follow the NCO Creed, you can’t go wrong, because it gives us everything we need. If you do that and you take care of your Soldiers, you can accomplish anything.”

Vehicle inspection: Pass or fail LIGHTS: • Check that all lights function correctly. • Wrong bulbs in taillights make them too bright. Check license plate lights, park lights and headlight alignment. • Accessory lights are not authorized. If there are off-road lights on the vehicle, they must have the correct cover from the manufacturer, and the on/off switch must be separate from the factory light switches. • Lenses for lights cannot be cracked or broken. • Brake lights and headlights must be fully operable.

Senior Airman Jeffrey Greenwell, 86th Vehicle Readiness Squadron vehicle maintenance journeyman, receives a registration form to begin a vehicle inspection Feb. 26 on Kapaun Air Station. The 86th VRS privately owned vehicle inspection center provides a free POV mechanical inspection to the KMC.

ABOVE: A rejected vehicle registration form, provided by the 86th Vehicle Readiness Squadron, is seen here. With more than 30,000 vehicles inspected each year, the 86th VRS makes it a goal to ensure privately owned vehicles are maintained and operated in accordance with regulations. LEFT: Staff Sgt. Simon Heffinger, 86th Vehicle Readiness Squadron vehicle maintenance journeyman, begins a vehicle undercarriage inspection. The vehicle will be rejected if there is evidence of an excessive leak or an ongoing slow leak of oil, antifreeze or saturation of the underbody of the vehicle.

TIRES: • Unless the manufacturer specifications say otherwise (staggered tires, ex: Corvette), all four tires on the vehicle must be the same size. • Seasonal tires cannot be mixed. • Summer tires should not be worn in the winter and vice versa. • Minimum tread depth for the entire tread surface cannot be less than 1.6 mm. Poor tire inflation or wheel alignment will wear your tires unevenly and lessen the life expectancy of the tire. • Tires that have the side walls cut or gouged or are bald and showing cords will render the vehicle “unsafe.” WINDOW TINT: • Tint on the front door glass is not authorized (and illegal in Germany) and needs to be removed to pass. Tint on the windshield can be no more than 4 inches, or below the AS1 line (which is not on all windshields.) DECALS: • Decals with any US city, state or military/DOD affiliation must be removed (dealership tag, AF wife, base stickers, flags, etc.). WINDSHIELDS: • Any crack or star chip in the driver’s viewing area will require the windshield to be replaced. • Outside the driver’s viewing area, any crack over 1 inch or any star chip over ½ inch will require the windshield to be replaced. Any such damage less than this (in the passenger area) may be repaired.

AFOSI cracks codes on crimes Story and photo by Airman Dymekre Allen 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Like a jigsaw puzzle, an investigation can’t be completed without all the pieces in their precise position, so Air Force Office of Special Investigations Airmen work tirelessly searching through jumbled pieces of information, using their skills of detection to fit the puzzle together and help catch criminals. They are the crime scene investigators of the KMC. “Sometimes it’s a dangerous and time consuming career,” said Special Agent Sara Moe, U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa criminal investigator. “We are always on call, and we always have to be ready for anything that comes our way.” These crime scene investigators undergo an extensive 11-week training program where they conduct physical training several times a week and learn an array of skills, including defensive tactics, emergency driving, evidence processing, firearms, search

and seizure, and arrest techniques, all of which they use to hunt criminals. “Every investigation is different,” said Special Agent Joshua Tree, USAFEAFAFRICA criminal investigator. “Even if the same crime is committed, none of the cases are predictable, so we have to be prepared to face anything.” Unlike other U.S. federal agencies, the OSI is not only specialized in a single area. OSI is one of the most diverse law enforcement entities in the United States. Their crime preventing responsibilities range from protective service and counterfeiting to homicide and illegal substance distribution. They deal with almost all felony level crimes committed by Air Force members, such as murder, sexual assault, drug and human trafficking, as well as cyber crimes. These crime scene investigators also have a counter intelligence mission and a counter espionage mission, allowing them to stop and prevent any and all criminal activities without including outside sources. According to investigators,

nothing can be left to chance; overlooking the smallest bit of evidence or disrupting a scene of a crime could be the pivotal point in any case. “A lot goes into processing a crime scene, and all of it is important,” Tree said. “Missing one little detail or not paying enough attention to all the clues could put someone innocent behind bars or allow the guilty to walk free, so we have to gather all the information and use it effectively to crack the code.” The agents collect evidence by using many different methods, including DNA, digital images, fingerprints, impressions, video, audio and documents, all of which lead to directly solving cases. “There’s always something left behind and there’s always a way to find it,” Moe said. “Whether it’s hair follicles, fingerprints or an eye witness, with enough time and motivation we can piece together the puzzle.” To ensure each scene is documented properly they measure, sketch and photograph the entire area before evidence is identified and col-

lected. During this process, agents must be careful and cognizant of their movements as well as wear protective gear so they don’t contaminate the crime scene by moving items around or destroy DNA evidence. After evidence is gathered and processed the investigators have to stay resilient for each case, because depending on the severity, they could potentially be working on a single case from anywhere between a few days to a few years. “It’s a long and stressful process, but there’s nothing like looking the victims in the face and telling them I found the person responsible

for their pain,” Moe said. The work of these criminal investigators may not be as flashy as a TV drama, but it’s still a dangerous game of cat and mouse, truth and lie, mystery and conspiracy, and with every piece added to the puzzle, it grows more confusing and more difficult to find the right fits. With that on their minds, these crime fighters must never grow weary, because for every waking moment there’s another link leading closer to the completion of the puzzle. Staff sergeants or senior airmen interested in becoming OSI agents should call 480-5779.

any things can discourage young Airmen arriving at a new base, let alone a new country. Fortunately for one Airman, she was able to overcome any concerns by using her core values to come up with solutions and make those worries fly away. Being away from family, especially around the holidays, and having to acquire an entirely new set of skills in a short amount of time can be tough. Airman 1st Class Caitlin Schaefer, 86th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron crew chief, leaned on her fellow Airmen to help her get through in-processing. “I got here the Sunday before Thanksgiving,” Schaefer said. “I started RIP (Ramstein in-processing) line on Monday, and the next week I began

FTAC (First Term Airman Center). The whole cycle was really fast.” The stress of learning a vast amount in a short time while being a female in a male-dominated career field has brought Schaefer closer to her core values. “Being in a male dominated career field doesn’t really matter to me at the end of the day, because we have one mission: send our birds up,” she said. “If we are doing an inspection and skip something, it could be life threatening, and that is something we need to take seriously. It could mean people’s lives.” To Schaefer, “Excellence in all we do” is one of the more important core values and uses it every day with even the smallest of tasks like picking up trash off the ground. “She is an excellent and motivated worker out on the flightline,” said Master Sgt. Shannon Smith, 86th AMXS section chief. “She is a team player, and the other Airmen here really like working with her.” Having the integrity to do what’s right, even when others around might not do the same thing, can be hard for some first-term Airmen. However, for

Schaefer, being a role model for others who are younger than her is something that comes naturally. “I’m a little older in age than some new Airmen, so I have had a little more life experience than them by going through college,” Schaefer said. “Being able to live in Germany is such an awesome experience the Air Force has given me, and I am very grateful

for my job and this opportunity.” Core values, strong bonds with peers and supervisors, and a strong work ethic have proven to be three key factors in Schaefer’s success. Showing others that first-term Airmen can accomplish the same goals as more experienced Airmen has brought her to the forefront of her squadron to keep Ramstein flying.

Due to the nature of working with service members, midwives on military installations must cope with unique delivery situations. Partners of deployed service members must occasionally deliver their babies without nearby support of the father. In such cases, midwives suggest supplementary support to ensure an easier experience. Nicaisse encourages families separated due to deployment to have Skype accounts set up, so partners can be present for routine appointments. Small updates, such as the recording of a baby’s heartbeat on a smartphone, for the absent parent can bring the families together despite distance. Nicaisse said appropriate support is an important part of the process of delivery. “In the military community we tend to be so far removed from our family and friends we grew up with, so we no longer have the support system we would have if we were delivering our baby at home,” Nicaisse said. “We can’t replace those people, but

March 7, 2014 I try to fill in those gaps and make them as comfortable as possible.” Staff Sgt. Heather Darlow experienced the deliveries of both her children with Nicaisse by her side. Nicaisse came recommended to Darlow when she was pregnant with her first child. Upon meeting her, Darlow said she knew she wanted Nicaisse to deliver her baby. “Within minutes I was put at ease, and we were soon talking like we had known each other for years,” Darlow said. The connection between the women lasted beyond Darlow’s first pregnancy, and she approached Nicaisse again when she discovered she was pregnant with her second child. The delivery of her second son proved to be a difficult one, with her baby’s heart rate dropping dangerously low. But Darlow said Nicaisse stayed by her side throughout labor and succeeded in delivering a healthy baby boy. “I am very fortunate that I was able to have Captain Nicaisse as my midwife,”

Darlow said. “She helped me in so many ways while I was pregnant and after. She has forever changed my life.” Although there is excitement and joy in delivering children, there are also moments of heartbreak. Pregnancy and delivery are sometimes complicated by medical issues, and small lives may be lost. In such cases, midwives provide emotional support to grieving families. “That’s the part of my job I don’t like,” Nicaisse said. “I like being there for the families and supporting them, but I wish it wasn’t part of life in general.” Despite the encompassing difficulties, Nicaisse said being a midwife is a fulfilling work of passion. The desire to care for women and build personal relationships that promote healthy living fuels her and other midwives through the demanding hours and emotional strain. “Being a midwife is not a job. It’s a calling,” she said. “I am just really happy. I feel like this is where I belong and what I’m supposed to be doing with my life.”

The town hall was streamed live on Facebook, and viewers posted questions such as, “What’s the word on more troops coming?� “Any word on special forces?� “Would it be possible to install a speed bump by Bldg. 8017?� Those in the audience also asked about getting a dog park at Smith Barracks, how

the consolidation of command at the clinic will impact Baumholder, and why the pedestrian gate does not work and how it can be fixed.

AVID brightens students’ futures Story and photo by Airman Larissa Greatwood 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


The Ramstein Middle School AVID tutoring class asks another student questions to help guide her to the answer Feb. 25.

wenty of the 34 years of its existence, the Advancement Via Individual Determination program has helped students at Ramstein Middle School prepare for college. RMS adopted the AVID program in 1994 to better students’ education, raise grade point averages and give students optimal opportunities in the future. Fifty-two students are

enrolled in the program from grades six to eight at RMS alone. RMS student Zoe Harrigan, daughter of Maj. Michael Harrigan, 603rd Air Operations Center, said the AVID program has made a positive impact on her education. “I’ve been in AVID for two years, and it’s really helped me with my classes,” Harrigan said. “I’ve gotten more A’s, and I’ve always been an A and B student.” The AVID program does not only aim to enhance students’ grades, it also helps

them maintain the good grades they already have. Dedication is a must for students wanting to be a part of the program. Once AVID is chosen as an elective class, students have a one year commitment to the course. “Students are considered eligible after meeting basic criteria for the program,” said Jonathan Petrick, RMS AVID coordinator. “Prospective students participate in the filtering process and the best students are selected for the AVID program.” See AVID, next page

RHS teen turns family passion into hobby by Holly Freeman Ramstein High School Ramstein High School senior Kat Rosewitz is a normal, busy student, entering into talent shows and preparing for graduation. But this student also keeps busy with a much more unusual activity — she has a passion for historical re-enactments. Rosewitz admits her hobby is not the typical teenage pastime, but said she was born into it. Rosewitz’s parents actually met at a re-enactment and later had a Civil War wedding. With that kind of passion, it was hard for Rosewitz and her two sisters not to become involved in

historical re-enactments, too. “In Europe, the events are typically attended by American and British military units with the purpose of re-enacting, as accurately as possible, various historical events and battles,” Rosewitz said. Though many of the participants in the re-enactments have a military background, anyone can become a re-enactor. The Rosewitz family has enough combined knowledge and costumes to participate in re-enactments extending from the French and Indian War all the way to World War II. Rosewitz and her family’s favorite time era and the period for which they

have the most costumes is the Napoleonic War. The Rosewitz family makes all their costumes by hand. Rosewitz said her dad is the main tailor in the family followed by her older sister, Emily, and then Rosewitz herself. A typical historical reenactment usually occurs over a three-day period and is open to the public. “You really need to know what you are talking about, because people come up to you during the re-enactments and ask you questions that you need to be able to answer in an accurate way,” Rosewitz said. On Fridays, the opening ceremony takes place, and

there is usually a parade, speeches or possibly one single battle re-enactment. Many school groups come on Fridays. Each morning and evening, the military units summon their call to colors for the public. Throughout the day, there are bands playing, vendors selling products and speeches being made while the battle re-enactments are taking place. For large events that have excellent historical documentation, such as Bicentennial of Leipzig’s Battle of Nations, the entire historical experience is choreographed down to the minute. In one battle re-enacted, Rosewitz said she had to lay on the ground and pretend to be dead for more than an hour. Rosewitz said her passion for history has grown from her participation in historical re-enactments. “There is a big difference between seeing or hearing about history and actually acting out a character in time,” she said. “By participating in the experience, you appreciate all the details much more.” Rosewitz said she enjoys getting dressed up in the fancy clothes for the balls the most. Rosewitz and her family are members of the Regency Society of Virginia, which has taught her different period dances, such as the Yellow Stocking, the Virginia Reel and the Polka. At times, Rosewitz tries to drag her friends to the events,

Kat Rosewitz

and she has managed to get some of her friends hooked on historical re-enactments. Rosewitz even organized a youth workshop on women’s clothing during the Civil War. During the workshop, Rosewitz taught teens about the difference between corsets and stays and work and tea dresses. Students in the workshop also learned historical trivia, such as the term “dressing to the nines,” which dates back to the Civil War era when women normally dressed in nine layers of clothing. This year, Rosewitz is graduating and heading off to college, but she said she’s still planning on being involved in historical re-enactments after high school. In fact, as a graduation gift, her father is taking her to the Italian island of Elba in the Mediterranean Sea to the Napoleonic Bicentennial weekend.

AVID, from Page 16

Basic criteria for consideration are: • Teacher recommendations • Good attendance • A score of five to nine on the Terra Nova Exam in reading, language arts and math • Individual determination to succeed • Great behavior and citizenship • GPA between 2.0 and 3.5 The AVID program is not geared toward a particular class subject, but covers all topics in which students may be struggling. “AVID is an elective course,” said Ryan Harris, RMS AVID tutor. “We cover every course the students take. Some may need help with Spanish homework, and students taking German can still ask questions. It gives the students a wider range of knowledge.” The AVID program is unique because students don’t just sit down with a tutor who guides them through a problem. Instead, students stand in front of their peers and try to work out the problem as a group. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, the RMS AVID class does what are known as tutorials. “A tutorial starts with a (tutorial request form),” Harrigan said. “We have to make a TRF from a problem we didn’t understand from homework or even an upcoming test. The tutor may choose you to do your tutorial on the board depending on what your (point of confusion) sounds like. The other students are only allowed to ask questions to help the presenter solve the problem.” Tutorials allow the students a different method of learning through questioning. “Note taking really helps, and tutorials help answer questions we might have,” Harrigan said. “It’s fun to have other students ask me questions when I’m doing a tutorial because it’s good to know I’m not the only one with questions.” Even if they know the answer to the question, the tutors use a technique with the students to get them thinking. Students will ask the student presenter questions about the problem they’re doing to help them find the solution. “We guide them with the inquiry process of questioning and don’t give the presenter the answer, but assist them in discovering the answer themselves,” Harris said. Not only do the tutors help the students through tutorials and other resources, but they are also active in watching the students’ grades. “Every Thursday we have the students print out their grades,” said Harris, who has been an AVID tutor since September. “We go through each class and work on things they’re struggling with. It’s always nice to see when the students are getting better.” Harris says he finds his job fulfilling and feels good knowing he is sending collegeready students into the world. “I feel like I make a difference in the lives of our students,” Harris said. “Our job is to mentor and guide students to be better in their studies. We teach them skills to prepare them for college and become productive members of society.”

A discussion about heart disease awareness Lt. Col. (Dr.) Wesley Clarkson is a cardiologist and OIC of the Cardiology Clinic and Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center. Clarkson conducted his postgraduate training in internal medicine and fellowship in cardiovascular diseases at Brooke Army Medical Center, Texas, and remained at there as an active faculty member involved in training Army and Air Force internal medicine residents and cardiology fellows from 2008 until PCSing to LRMC in 2012.

What do you want to discuss today? Awareness. It is our goal as cardiovascular disease specialists to continue to increase awareness regarding the concerns and devastating effects of heart disease as the No. 1 killer of Americans, as well as put to rest the myth that women are immune from heart disease. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women still to this day. What are the symptoms of heart disease? Symptoms representative of heart pain classically are described as central, or “substernal,” chest pressure or pain, generally not sharp — an uneasy feeling that may be associated with shortness of breath (and/or) radiation of discomfort to the left upper chest or arm or even neck or jaw. In general, these symptoms are brought on by exertion (or stress) and relieved with rest. However, these are classic, text book symptoms. Women may have very different signs. Symptoms may include shortness of breath, back pain, jaw pain, nausea, dizziness or light-headedness. Patients may simply notice a slight decrease in their ability to tolerate exercise or exertion compared to their normal activity. What are risk factors for heart disease? High blood cholesterol, high blood pressure,

tobacco use, family history of heart disease, obesity, physical inactivity, male gender.

What are some of the modifiable risk factors? With the exception of family history and gender, most of the risk factors for cardiovascular disease are modifiable with lifestyle modifications, such as adhering to a heart healthy diet, regular exercise habits, tobacco cessation and maintaining a healthy weight. As a matter of fact, focusing on the modifiable risk remains the cornerstone in prevention of coronary artery disease. Screening for people at risk should be considered for those 21 years of age or older if not already identified as at risk. What can I do to lower my risk of getting heart disease? First and foremost, understand your risk regardless of your age, gender or other medical problems. Inquire with your primary care provider for a better understanding of this and possibly an initial screening. Do I need to see a cardiologist? That depends. It is important to understand heart disease is not just screening for and preventing a heart attack. Heart disease comes in many different forms. Thus, symptoms of chest pain or discomfort (especially with activity), palpitations, shortness of breath or passing out could be representative of many different forms of heart disease suggestive of an arrhythmia (an abnormal heart beat), a valve problem or even an enlarged or hypertrophied heart. Hypertension is an extremely common problem in our society with longstanding hypertension leading to many symptoms of non-coronary artery heart disease. How can I be seen at LRMC? We currently have five cardiologists and two reg-

‘Color Me Green’ 5K

Put on your best green gear and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with the “Color Me Green” 5K Fun Run/Walk March 15 beginning at the Landstuhl Fitness Center. Registration takes place from 8 to 9:30 a.m., a safety briefing will be held at 9:45, and the run begins at 10. Runners must be in place no later than 9:30 a.m. Open to all ID cardholders. Pets are welcome on a leash. The course is stroller friendly, but not suitable for roller blades. Entry fee is $5. For details, call 493-2086 or 0631-3406-2086.

Push-up challenge

A B-24 Memorial Push-Up challenge will take place from 3 to 5 p.m. March 28 at the Ramstein Southside Fitness Center annex. The event is to raise funds to build a memorial commemorating the 70th anniversary of the B-24 crash of “Our Love” in Macedonia Aug. 26, 1944. To register and volunteer, contact Tech. Sgt. James Hodgman at 480-6558 or B24memorial@gmail.com.

Umpires needed

The Department of Defense Dependents Schools baseball and softball season is just around the corner and there is a shortage of experienced umpires in Europe. Umpires in Germany cover every DODDS school in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands and they have an unusually high number of turnover from

istered nurses providing cardiovascular care within our service at LRMC. Currently, we are able to see all patients who are active duty, family members, DOD civilians and retirees. A simple referral from your primary care provider is all you need to see us, whether it is for a preventative cardiology evaluation/risk assessment or to address any potential cardiovascular symptoms you may be experiencing.

What cardiovascular services does LRMC provide? We provide a full range of cardiovascular services, including a robust preventive cardiology clinic. The preventive cardiology clinic allows further risk stratification for patients who may be at risk for cardiovascular disease, with specific recommendations for modifying risk. We offer CT calcium scoring in appropriate patients for further risk stratification beyond the typical risk calculators established in general practice. The cardiology service also provides transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiograms (ultrasounds), cardiac catheterizations, arrhythmia monitoring with Holters and Event recorders, pacemaker evaluations, Coumadin (anticoagulation) clinic as well as full inpatient consultative services. We have a well-defined, collegial relationship with local cardiologists who assist with invasive corrective procedures, such as coronary angioplasty or stenting, electrophysiology testing and therapy, as well as cardiothoracic surgery care for bypass and valve surgery. Additionally, we continue to refer many of our patients to our colleagues within the continental U.S. military training facilities, such as San Antonio Military Medical Center and Walter Reed National Military Medical Consortium.

this past season due to umpires PCSing. There will be a high school baseball clinic starting at 9 a.m. Saturday at the Ramstein Southside Gym Annex. It will cover rules changes for 2014 and points of interest, then will transition to a field clinic at around noon. If interested, email Andy Benton at gabuldawg@yahoo. com or Sergio Jaquez at cardiac2u911@yahoo.com.

Softball tryouts

The Ramstein Lady Rams varsity (slow pitch) softball tryouts will be held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 12 and 13 on the softball field behind Southside Fitness Center. To try out, you must be an ID card holder 18 years or older. For more information, call Linda Poe at 479-4221.

Soccer referees needed

The Kaiserslautern Officials Association, which provides sports officials for Department of Defense Dependents Schools, is now looking for soccer officials. The only beginning qualifications include soccer experience at the high school or college level, a desire to give back to the sport and the ability to travel to schools throughout the DODDS area on game days. KOA referees receive good game pay, mileage and overnight lodging when needed. For more information about refereeing, contact the commissioner, Garrett Field, at 0151-464-1963 or garrett.d.field@gmail.com.

The 22nd edition of the motorcycle show INTERMOTO offers something for every two-wheeler fan! On March 15 the 22nd INTERMOTO launches the motorcycle season within the Saar-Lor-Lux-region and the neighboring Rhineland-Palatine at the action fair for motorcycles, scooters and quads, on the Saarbrücken exhibition grounds. Focus of the numerous two-wheeler and quad fans will be the latest creations of famous motorcycle brands . You can admire the novelties of manufacturers such as Aprilia , BMW, Derbi , Ducati, Gilera , Harley -Davidson , Honda, Kawasaki, Motech , Piaggio , Peugeot , Triumph, Suzuki , Ural, Vespa and Yamaha. Whether scooter, enduros , cruiser, chopper , naked bikes , touring or super athletes. New factory bikes are by far not everything being offered to two-wheel enthusiasts within the seven exhibition halls and the outdoor area . The usual perfect blend of classic two-wheeled show, action , show, fun and motorsports has been supplemented this year by more highlights. The spectacular Supermoto race will start at the outdoor area again. In addition to the German aces numerous pilots from neighboring states are expected. The fans of customizing and spectacular conversions will also get their money’s worth . For many clubs with their Streetfighters and precious conversions the INTERMOTO is and remains a must . The same applies to the Saarland customizing specialists , who don’t want to miss this event in Saarbrücken. The best bikes are presented to the jury of the Saarland custom bike show which is known far beyond the borders of the Saarland. The show was clearly rejuvenated this year and slimmed down to a few categories. It also gained a partner by including the company Scooter Attack and their premiering scooter custom show. Another innovation is the “Wheelie Simulator” which was well received by fans at last year’s TuningExpo. German motorcycle stunt driver Michael Threin developed the simulator and will be supervising it during the fair. In addition, there will be an even larger selection of motorcycle accessories , tuning parts, tires , helmets and all types of clothing to try and of course to buy. Numerous travel specialists introduce their packages and offers completely tailored to the needs of bikers. Whether it is in Germany , Europe, Africa or the United States on Highway No. 1 or the famous Route 66. Another highlight will be the first held Miss Tattoo Expo Saar – Intermoto pageant! www. intermoto-saar.de
