Obama nominates new chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff

WASHINGTON — On May 5, President Barack Obama nominated Marine Corps Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr. to serve as the 19th chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Air Force Gen. Paul J. Selva to serve as the 10th vice chairman. During an announcement in the White House Rose Garden, the president said that among military leaders, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is the principal military adviser to him and his national security team. Members of that team, including Defense Secretary Ash Carter, were in the audience.

“In recent years, I have been deeply grateful for the service of our chairman, Gen. Marty Dempsey, and our vice chairman, Adm. Sandy Winnefeld,” Obama said. “Marty and Sandy will complete their terms later this year.” Navigating urgent challenges To Dempsey and Winnefeld, the president said he has relied on their advice, counsel and judgment as the nation has navigated the urgent challenges of recent years. Obama also thanked their families for support throughout the decades. “From ending our combat mission in Afghanistan to leading the international coalition to destroy (the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant), conducting humanitarian opera-

tions from typhoon relief in the Philippines to fighting Ebola in West Africa, and strengthening our security alliances from Europe to Asia at every step, you have been critical to our processes, and I have valued not only your counsel but your friendships,” Obama said. Introducing his choice of who will be the next chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Obama called Dunford, one of the military’s most admired officers. “Fightin’ Joe” Dunford has served as commandant of the Marine Corps since Oct. 17, 2014. Dunford is a Boston native, the son of a retired Boston police officer and a Marine veteran of Korea, the president said. “Joe followed in his

father’s footsteps and has distinguished himself through nearly 40 years of military service,” Obama added. Dunford has commanded Marines in the field from the platoon level to a Marine expeditionary force. During the invasion of Iraq, he led Marines in the charge to Baghdad, Obama said. According to a post on MarinesBlog, the official Marine Corps blog, it was in Iraq that he earned the nickname “Fightin’ Joe” while serving in 2003 under Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis and leading Regimental Combat Team 5 during the initial invasion.

Professionalism, fundamental to leadership COMMENTARY

by Chief Master Sgt. Frank J. Lakotich Operations Superintendent, 86th Civil Engineer Squadron As I look around and interact with the Airmen assigned to Ramstein and within the KMC, I’m truly amazed at the number of technological advances the Air Force has experienced since I joined 27 years ago. As basic as advancing from carbon-copy forms, typewriters and the skills to manually operate them to autofill digital forms and computers on each desk, the past several decades have proven our abilities to leverage technology to do more with less. Still, one thing has not changed through the years — the demand for our Airmen to be the most dedicated and true professionals our country has to offer. Professionalism has and always will be the foundation for which our missions and core values are built upon, and it strengthens our ability to work as a team to accomplish anything. I’ve been asked by many Airmen what skillset is imperative to being a successful leader. That skillset is professionalism, period. The

give me his unvarnished military advice based on his experience on the ground,” Obama continued. Under Dunford’s steady hand, Afghanistan achieved key milestones, including taking the lead for their own security, historic elections and the drawdown of U.S. forces, the president said — all of which set the stage for the end of the U.S. combat mission there. Obama thanked Dunford and his wife, Ellyn, for their continued service to the nation before introducing vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Air Force Gen. Paul Selva. Pilot and commander Selva is a pilot and a commander with 35 years of military service. “As leader of Air Mobility Command, he earned a reputation as a force for change and innovation,” Obama said. “I understand that when

follow-up question usually is my definition of the word, and I always respond without a definition and a series of questions for them to answer. Do you lead by example? Do you walk past that piece of trash on the ground, or do you stop and pick it up? Do you address everyone as ‘sir’ or ‘ma’am’, say ‘please’ or ‘thank you’ when appropriate, and treat others as you want to be treated? Do you actively listen to folks when they’re talking to you, or are you preoccupied multitasking on your smartphone? These are a few observations I ask folks to reflect upon to help define the meaning of professional. But professionalism doesn’t stop there or at the end of each work shift. We’re Airmen — 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We’re expected to maintain those professional behaviors off duty as well. When standing in line seven-people-deep with only one register open, when posting our opinions on social networking sites, and when interacting with our host nation friends, the expectation to be professional remains steadfast and without question.

it was time to deliver the final C-17 (Globemaster III) to the Air Force, Paul went to the cockpit and helped fly it himself.” As head of U.S. Transportation Command, the president said Selva has been committed to partnerships that are a core principle of the national security strategy, “whether it’s supplying our joint force around the world in operations large and small, to supporting and keeping safe our diplomats and embassy personnel overseas.” Because Selva served as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s military adviser for the first years of Obama’s presidency, he grasps the strategic environment in which U.S. forces operate, the president added. Next chapter of service “He understands that our military, as powerful as it is, is one tool that must be used in concert with all the elements of our national power,” Obama said, thanking Selva and his including insert or supplements, does not constitute endorsement by the DOD, the Department of the Air Force or the AdvantiPro GmbH of the products or the services advertised.

Before you put on your “Facebook lawyer” hat and post something, ask yourself if this is something you’re ready to answer to with your leadership. If the answer to that question is ‘no’ or you hesitated in your decision, then it’s probably safe to say it’s not professional. It is very important to remember we’re ambassadors here, and our behavior while stationed abroad reflects not only on ourselves, but the country we swore to defend. It’s expected we treat our hosts with the utmost professionalism while we are guests in their country. Why am I sharing this with you? With the constant mission churn, numerous process changes the past year, and our heavy deployment requirements on the horizon, now, more than ever, is the time to reflect on ourselves and tighten up those behaviors which don’t measure up to the expectation. I see and address it every day. With everyone’s continued effort to exceed expectations, “Good-ship Ramstein” will continue to be the place to be in Europe, and I have no doubt for many years to come. It starts with your professionalism. Are you ready to lead?

Global security challenges Also in a statement, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin E. Dempsey said he has known Dunford for nearly half of his 39 years of service. “He is a phenomenal, combat-tested leader and a man of integrity, courage and humility,” Dempsey said. Gen. Selva is also a leader of competence and character,” the chairman continued. “He has a tremendous

understanding of the global security challenges we face and experience at every echelon of command, most recently leading our global transportation network.” As Obama concluded his remarks, he told Dunford and Selva that the nation continues to call on its armed forces to meet a range of challenges. “We have to keep training Afghan forces and remain relentless against al-Qaida. We have to push back against ISIL and strengthen forces in Syria and build moderate opposition in Syria,” he said. The nation also must stand united with its allies in Europe and keep rebalancing its posture as a Pacific power, and continue to invest in new capabilities to meet growing threats, including cyberattacks, Obama added. “As commander in chief, I’ll be looking to you for your honest military advice as we meet these challenges,” he said.



wife, Ricki, who also served in the Air Force, for taking on this next chapter of their service together. In a statement released May 5, Carter said that Dunford has been an infantry officer at every level, and that Selva has been an innovator throughout his career. “They’re exemplary leaders, and they both have the strategic perspective and operational experience to help guide our military and advise the president at a time of much change in the world,” Carter said.

Airmen learn to LEAD Story and photos by Airman 1st Class Lane T. Plummer 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


irman 1st Class Dillon Fowler and Senior Airman Ryan Pastor began their days with an abrupt notification that they weren’t going to report straight to work. They had someone waiting for them elsewhere — their commanders. “We had no idea what was going on,” said Fowler, 86th Communications Squadron cable maintenance technician. “I was thinking back and thought, ‘Well, I don’t remember doing anything wrong.’”

With just a few words, both Airmen were told they were selected to become cadets through the Leaders Encouraging Airman Development program at the U.S. Air Force Academy. “I didn’t make the list of direct entries, so I didn’t expect to make it,” said Pastor, 460th Space Communications Squadron radio frequency transmissions system journeyman. “I was a little nervous, but mostly excited.” Every year, Airmen who meet the academy’s requirements to apply are nominated for the highly selective LEAD program, where Airmen who demonstrate exceptional leadership qualities and excellent work ethic are nominated to com-

mission through the academy. Airmen are either sent straight into the academy or through a one-year preparatory school prior to attending the academy. Capt. Melanie Frost, executive officer for the Area 730th Academy Admissions Liaison Officers, believes Airmen accepted through this program are a grade above other entering cadets. “Typically, prior enlisted become the class presidents of their classes,” Frost said. “They demonstrate a lot of peer leadership, and their peers look up to them.” Fowler and Pastor both come from small-town lifestyles (Bath, N.Y. and Byron, Calif. respectively). Both were raised to be hard workers, normally found tweaking and fixing up projects of their own. This aspect of their lives carried over to their Air Force careers. “I’ll miss working here. I love to work. I’ve grown up my whole life working,” Fowler said. “It’ll be different managing a lot of people instead of always working hands-on.” However, neither Airman has regrets about moving his career forward. Both have a positive outlook on their careers and where their futures are heading. “I guess the part I’m looking forward to most is being able to see good leadership

and to take what I’ve learned here and what I’m going to learn and apply it toward helping people steer themselves in the right direction and do my job the best I can,” Pastor said. Pastor hopes it will be he who is sitting in an office

staring at one of his Airmen, ready to promote him or her to the academy. It’ll be a moment when he knows he has succeeded in being an officer. With just a few words, he’ll have changed an Airman forever.

First female F-35 pilot begins training

Photo by Staff Sgt. Marleah Robertson

Lt. Col. Christine Mau, 33rd Operations Group deputy commander, puts on her helmet before taking her first flight in the F-35A Lightning II May 5 at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. Mau, who previously flew F-15E Strike Eagles, made history as the first female F-35 pilot in the program.

by 1st Lt. Hope Cronin 33rd Fighter Wing Public Affairs EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. — The Department of Defense welcomed its first female F-35 Lightning II pilot at Eglin Air Force Base May 5.

Lt. Col. Christine Mau, the 33rd Fighter Wing Operations Group deputy commander, completed her first training flight in the single-seat, fifthgeneration fighter following 14 virtual training missions in the full mission simulator at the F-35 Academic Training Center.

“It wasn’t until I was taxiing to the runway that it really struck me that I was on my own in the jet,” Mau said, formerly an F-15E Strike Eagle pilot. “I had a chase aircraft, but there was no weapon systems officer or instructor pilot sitting behind me, and no one in my ear like in simulators.”

With that, like the other 87 F-35A pilots trained over the last four years, Mau thundered down the runway and was airborne as the first woman in the Air Force’s premier fighter. “It felt great to get airborne. The jet flies like a dream, and seeing the systems interact is impressive. Flying with the Helmet Mounted Display (System) takes some adjusting, but it’s an easy adjustment,” Mau said. “The training missions in the simulator prepare you very well, so you’re ready for that flight.” The initial flight in the F-35 training syllabus is designed to orient pilots with the physical aspects of flying the F-35 compared to other fighters they’ve flown previously, such as the F-15E Strike Eagle, F-15C Eagle, F-16 Fighting Falcon, A-10 Thunderbolt II or F-22 Raptor. Women have served in combat aviation roles in aircraft such as these as well as other aircraft for more than 20 years. Ruck, from Page 1

and partnership between the reserves association and the 4th ASOG,” said Cmdr. Jürgen Lemke, Rheinland-Pfalz Reservist Chapter Undenheim chairman. “We have had several occasions where we meet, train and have fun together. We appreciate the attendance of the Airmen here. It gives this event international flavor.” The ruck march is the third joint event this year for the two units, and there are many more to come. “These events let us talk about the different military systems,” Lemke said. “The different states everybody is from, or just talking about movies and other hobbies. It’s perfect — everybody is happy that the Air Force is part of our event.” During this event, the U.S. and German airmen worked side-by-side to complete one of the many steps for the German Armed Forces Badge for Military Proficiency. Other tasks included a

Mau acknowledged that although she may be the first female in the F-35 program, her gender has no bearing on her performance as a fighter pilot. She joked that the only difference between her and her fellow F-35 pilots is the size of her G-suit and facemask — they are both extra small. “Flying is a great equalizer,” Mau said. “The plane doesn’t know or care about your gender as a pilot, nor do the ground troops who need your support. You just have to perform. That’s all anyone cares about when you're up there — that you can do your job, and that you do it exceptionally well.” Mau’s combat experience and technical prowess in the cockpit were the primary draws for her selection to her position with the 33rd OG. “Lt. Col. Mau brings a valuable level of combat and operational knowledge to our team,” said Col. Todd See Pilot, Page 10

weapons competition, medical evaluations, fitness examinations and a 100meter swim. Even though they competed for an award, 4th ASOG Airmen agree that the friendships and partners they built are a better reward, especially during the German May Day celebration. “I want to thank the Undenheim reservist chapter for inviting us to this wonderful opportunity to ruck with them and enjoy their holiday together,” said Capt. Christian Robertson, 4th ASOG air liaison officer. “Training events like this ruck march, or firearms training in the past and even ceremonial events like last year’s Memorial Day ceremony, help us come together.” Whether it’s chasing a badge or running alongside a new friend, members of the 4th ASOG continue to build relationships between allies with events similar to this, Robertson said.

The German Wine Road Celebrates the Almond Blossom Spring is in the air! A sure sign that nature is waking up is the arrival of blossoms along the German Wine Road (Deutsche Weinstrasse). The entire region joins in with festivals and culinary delicacies for the almond season. Vintners open their doors and invite guests to sample the newest vintage. Restaurants, bars and hotels also offer a multitude of specialties using almonds. So, if you are looking to take a Sunday drive and walk among the pink blossoms, this is the perfect time to kick-start your spring.

Local Wine

We took a leisurely drive this past weekend to a couple of festivals along the Weinstrasse. We stopped first in Edenkoben to try their local wine made with almond blossoms and took a walk in the vineyards. As with most of the festivals in small German villages, there were several vendors selling wine, food and crafts.

Pfälzer Mandelpfad Route

If you have several hours (or possibly the opportunity to make it a weekend trip), there is a route called the “Pfälzer Mandelpfad” (Palatinate Almond Trail) that you can follow. It runs for about 50 miles, stretching between Bad Dürkheim all the way down to Bad Bergzabern, right on the French border. Almond trees have been cultivated in this area for centuries, and to date, you can find all sorts of treats made with almonds from sweets to liqueurs to pralines.

Other Villages on the Wine Road

Some of the Wine Road’s most picturesque villages and good bets for blossom-spotting include Deidesheim, Neustadt, Maikammer, St. Martin, Kirrweiler, Edenkoben and Bad Bergzabern. There are also numerous tours during the days and evenings along the Palatinate Almond Trail. This very special hiking trail runs through the land of almond blossoms for 77 kilometers.

Rosa Leuchten Tours

just over 1 hour south of Wiesbaden and 1 hour and 40 minutes northwest of Stuttgart. To visit one of the towns mentioned above on the Wine Road, check the Deutsche Bahn’s website at www.bahn.de for more information. Author’s Profile: Cheryl Koller is a native of Georgia. She is a DOD spouse, mom of 4 daughters (2 adults, 2 teens), thrill-seeker, avid traveler, and lover of food and wine. She is a self-proclaimed Freedom-Preneur and Blogger currently living in Ramstein with her family.

During Rosa Leuchten, there are many different tour options available, including 4 day and 8 day tours, bike tours and walking tours. You can even plant your own almond tree! Visit Mandelblüte in der Pfalz or German Wine Route for more information on events, tours and directions.

Pink Lights

How to Get There

As the afternoon turns to evening and daylight begins to fade, many fortresses, castles, churches and city gates along the Wine Road are lit up in pink lights (Rosa Leuchten). We decided to have a late day drive from the Edenkoben Almond Mile and ended at the Dionysius Chapel in Gleiszellen for their festival.

The German Wine Road (Deutsche Weinstrasse) is Germany’s oldest tourist wine route. Established in 1935, it is located in the Palatinate region of the state Rhineland-Palatinate (Rheinland-Pfalz). Though running through several villages, here is a starting point on the Wine Road. The Wine Road is less than 1 hour east of Kaiserslautern,

by Sgt. 1st Class Marcus Mitchell, president of the Sgt. Morales Club and key organizer of the event. They also received a resilience briefing from Staff Sgt. Patrick Williams, 18th Military Police Brigade, 21st TSC. “Everybody here is already 100 percent resilient because you are sitting here today,” Williams said. “Resilience is your strength. The key to success is getting past the sad times.” Lt. Col. Caprissa BrownSlade, commander of the 21st Special Troops Battalion, and Command Sgt. Maj. Brian Mainor, sergeant major of the 21st STB, also welcomed the students and discussed the importance of building relationships with our host nation partners. The students were filled

with excitement as they assisted firefighters from the U.S. Army Fire Station East in putting out fires using fire extinguishers. Autumn Collins, a junior at KHS, fulfilled a dream of hers by climbing into the cab of the fire truck. “I’ve always wanted to see what this was like,” Collins said. “I really want to be a firefighter.” Command Sgt. Maj. Rodney Rhoades, the senior enlisted noncommissioned officer for the 21st TSC, also visited the students. “You are here today to experience some of the amazing opportunities the Army has to offer that you may not have known about,” Rhoades said. “But your real mission today is to build relationships with each other. Building relationships

is the most important thing we do here.” Many other events took place that day. There was a demonstration by the dog handlers from the 100th Military Working Dog Detachment and their work dog, Valerie, as she apprehended a suspicious character. Riggers from the 5th Quartermaster Theater Aerial Delivery Company awed the students by showing them how to properly fold and pack a parachute. Afterward, several students tried on the heavy packs. The Explosive Ordnance Disposal Company, 18th Combat Sustainment Command, demonstrated how their robots disarm a bomb. There was also a Soldier clothed in his hazardous material suit ready to recover the bomb if needed. All of the students

had the opportunity to test out the robots and try on the suit. After the event, student and adult participants felt that Operation Spirit had met its goal. “This event was a great way to meet host nation students and have fun,” said Gracyn Redding, a sixth-grader at KMS. “If you want to be a firefighter, dog handler or diffuse bombs, it was an excellent handson experience. I liked the robots.” Heinke Balzulat, a member of German American Women’s Club and the organizer of the German students’ participation, felt that Operation Spirit was terrific. “This was a great day, especially for these German students,” Balzulat said. “They don’t know anything about the Americans in Germany.” Kirsten Hage, school psychologist at KHS also agreed. “Operation Spirit is aimed at supporting ‘Generation War,’” Hage said. “Many of these students have grown up having their parents deployed multiple times.” Today’s event has shown them firsthand what highly trained professionals their parents are,” Hage continued. “The students learned about a variety of careers both in and out of the military. As young ambassadors, they made real connections today with German students, which enhance our host nation relationships.”

KHS students celebrate Law Day with mock trial Story and photo by Brandon Beach 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs


he four-hour mock trial, held May 4 in the Warren J. Argue Courtroom on Kleber Kaserne, had all the legal components of an actual case: a plaintiff and defendant, attorneys, witnesses, court reporters, a bailiff — only the roles were played by high school students. The verdict was in: Casey Jones was a free man. The soft-spoken custodian from Loganville, Ill., was charged with two counts of home invasion and aggravated battery following a May 2014 incident at his ex-girlfriend’s home. The five-person jury returned to the courtroom following 20 minutes of deliberations and announced Jones as “not guilty.” Jones let out a sigh of relief and turned to high-five the members of his defense team, Thomas Dore, Matthew Jackson, Gemma Lovett and Donald Ratcliff — all students from Kaiserslautern High School. Mock Trial 2015 was the culminating event for students taking “Street Law,” a semester-long course taught by KHS teacher Mark Fairchild. Pilot, from Page 6

Canterbury, the 33rd FW commander. “We’re nearly a year out from declaring Initial Operational Capability with the F-35. We need battletested pilots to help us put the F-35A through its paces and ensure we have a trained and ready force of F-35 pilots to feed into our combat air forces.” Canterbury witnessed Mau’s leadership and combat effectiveness firsthand when they were both deployed to Afghanistan in 2011, where she was part of another important milestone for women in the combat aviation community. While with the 389th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron, Mau was part of the first all-female combat sortie. The

“It’s an introduction to the legal system and the basic concepts of jurisprudence,” Fairchild said. “I tell (students) before the class they will get a chance to practice law in front of real legal professionals.” Col. David H. Robertson, an Army chief circuit court judge with the Kaiserslautern Legal Services Center, presided over the trial in which prosecution and defense teams combat mission provided air support to coalition and Afghan forces in the Kunar Valley, Afghanistan. From the pilots and weapon systems officers of the two F-15E jets to the mission planners and maintainers, the entire mission was carried out entirely by women. “As a service, we need to attract the most innovative and skillful Airmen possible for one reason — it makes us more effective,” Canterbury said. “The broader the net that we cast into the talent pool, coupled with a laser focus on performance, ensures we have the best Airmen in place to carry out the mission. Performance is key, and it's the standard we hold all of our Airmen to in the Air Force.”

provided opening statements, examined witnesses, presented evidence and offered closing arguments. Sitting in as jurors were legal professionals from the Office of the Staff Judge Advocate, 21st Theater Sustainment Command, who also worked with the students for about a month formulating their legal strategies. “Lawyers have a lot of preparation to do, a lot of on-

the-spot thinking because you never know what the opposing side is going to throw at you,” said Ayress Grinage, a KHS senior and member of the prosecution side. “Cross examination is really where you have to think on your feet.” Grinage said she is off to the University of Florida to study biology in the fall, but confessed she hasn’t ruled out a future in law. Other students have also shown an interest in

the legal profession since the semester started nearly four months ago. “It’s really a great opportunity, and a lot of us are interested in law,” said Justin Hebert, a KHS senior who was named “Best Attorney” at the trial. “I want to major in criminal justice once I graduate (high school), and I figure this is a great chance to see if this is really what I want to do.” The mock trial coincides every year with Law Day, a special day recognized by the American Bar Association. This year’s theme centered on the Magna Carta, a document written 800 years ago in an attempt to make peace between King John of England and a group of rebel barons. The document is noteworthy in the U.S. for its influence on the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The fourth of its kind between the school and the legal office, this year’s mock trial was organized by Fairchild and Conchita Dunn, 21st TSC lead court reporter. “I try to make it as realistic as possible,” Dunn said. “If you came in here and this was a court marshal, it would look almost identical.” And with that, Judge Robertson struck down his gavel: case closed.

AFOSI agent displays service before self by Airman 1st Class Tryphena Mayhugh 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs The “whole-person” concept is the idea within the Air Force that Airmen not only perform their jobs, but strive to go above and beyond meeting minimum requirements, achieving personal and professional growth, and being an active member in their local communities. Special Agent Emmanuel Merhan, Air Force Office of Special Investigations, 4th Field Investigation Squadron, is an Airman who endeavors to portray aspects of the “whole-person” concept as a part of life — doing so resulted in him being awarded one of the Ten Outstanding Young Americans award. “Emmanuel embodies the ‘whole-person’ concept,” said Special Agent Shane Moon, AFOSI, 4th FIS, who has worked with Merhan for the last year. “He knows service to others positively affects everyone and everything in his life. Those actions, firmly rooted in his faith, will, and do, transform every aspect of his life,

including his service to the Air Force and his country.” On March 28 in Nashville, Tenn., Merhan was honored by the United States Junior Chamber with the award which in the past has been presented to Bill Clinton, Elvis Presley and Wayne Newton. “I believe he was chosen for the TOYA award because of his dedication and commitment to serving people in his life — friends, family, neighbors and complete strangers,” Moon said. “I believe he serves and loves people in his life because he truly cares. People can spot a phony from a mile away, and Emmanuel is not a phony, not even slightly.” Despite the people around him telling him he deserves the award, Merhan had a hard time accepting it. “I try to maintain a humble spirit, one of true humility, so it was extremely difficult for me to be acknowledged in this way,” Merhan said. “I decided to take this platform and boast about the number one thing in my life, and that’s my faith.” While working with his church, City Mission Kaisers-

lautern, the Sugarland, Texas native caught the attention of one of his co-workers, who nominated him for the award under the Humanitarian and Volunteer Leadership category. Through church, Merhan reaches out to refugees from Eastern Europe, Africa and the Middle East who have come to Germany, including the less fortunate within the German community. He helps organize and manage what they call a “Hope Market,” where donations of clothes, appliances, small furniture, produce and bread are available for those in need to take as much or as little as necessary. “It’s not just about meeting their physical needs, but also meeting their spiritual needs and letting them know they have brothers, sisters and friends here,” Merhan said. “It’s not about giving them free stuff and hoping that their lives get better. We want to do whatever else we can to help in all areas of their lives. It’s about that relationship.” Along with his work for refugees, Merhan is also involved in programs that educate youths about the dangers

of substance abuse, and he volunteers for the Wounded Warrior Program, assisting wounded military members as they transition back to the U.S. Merhan’s desire to help those around him does not stop with the local community. Ever since he was little, he said he wanted to be a police officer. “For me, the draw of OSI was having a hand in making the Air Force a better place,” Merhan said. “You have the ability to directly impact and shape what it looks like by

getting the guilty people out and exonerating the people who are innocent. You feel like there is a sense of protecting the Air Force.” The Air Force encourages Airmen to become more than their respective jobs and to have a positive impact on those around them. Living through his faith, Merhan devotes himself to serving others and his country, using each day as a stepping stone towards becoming a wellrounded Airman.

NATO bands rehearse for multinational Jazz Night by Headquarters Allied Air Command Public Affairs Office The musicians of the German Army Band Koblenz, the Dixie Group of Luxembourg’s Military Band and the U.S. Air Forces in Europe Big Band will present a joint Jazz Night June 20 at the Kammgarn Cultural Center in Kaiserslautern. Each of these professional musicians have performed individually on countless stages, but never have they performed during a joint session. On this occasion, they will first perform individually in the Kammgarn Casino and then rock the audience as a multinational NATO Jazz Night Band. To prepare for this event, 24 military musicians from three nations recently met at Koblenz to rehearse their joint appearance onstage. It

was important to familiarize all of the participants since the three band leaders will take turns in directing the

joint band performances. Adjutant major Christian Kirpes, director of the Luxembourg Dixieland Band,

was not the only one pleased with the outcome of the rehearsal. “For months we have now

been planning this event,” Kirpes said. “The musicians were excited to see how this joint rehearsal would go. Now they are very much looking forward to the actual event on June 20 at Kammgarn Kaiserslautern.” The NATO Jazz Night is the successor event to the NATO Music Festival, which was organized jointly by the City of Kaiserslautern and NATO’s Air Command on Ramstein from 1965 to 2011. The focus of this new event idea will be on jazz music. The venue and organizer of the NATO Jazz Night 2015 is Kammgarn Kaiserslautern. NATO Jazz Night proceeds go to the NATO Music Festival Foundation in support of charitable and non-profit projects.

The physicals will be performed 8 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. at the Ramstein Clinic, Bldg. 2114 and are valid for one year. Appointments can be made by calling 479-2273 or 06371-46-2273. The MDG will provide all of the necessary paperwork for this examination. Families need to arrive 30 minutes prior to the scheduled appointment in order to complete paperwork and the necessary pre-examination testing. If a child wears glasses, bring them to the appointment and have children wear comfortable clothing, such as a T-shirt and a pair of shorts. In addition, the 86th Dental Squadron will provide a walk-in mouth guard clinic for teens, young adults and children. Impressions will need to be adjusted for custom mouth guards and boil and bite mouth guards will also be available for smaller children. This is a benefit for children who are involved in contact sports. For more information on health screening physicals, call Capt. Brian Rottweiler or Senior Airman Matthew Smith at 479-1459.

The Longest Ride

The Longest Ride centers on the starcrossed love affair between Luke, a former champion bull rider looking to make a comeback, and Sophia, a college student who is about to embark upon her dream job in New York City’s art world. As conflicting paths and ideals test their relationship, Sophia and Luke make an unexpected and fateful connection with Ira, whose memories of his own decades-long romance with his beloved wife deeply inspire the young couple. Spanning generations and two intertwining love stories, The Longest Ride explores the challenges and infinite rewards of enduring love. Starring Scott Eastwood, Britt Robertson

Woman in Gold

Mad Max: Fury Road

Maria Altmann, is a Jewish refugee who is forced to flee Vienna during World War II. Decades later, determined to salvage some dignity from her past, Maria has taken on a mission to reclaim a painting the Nazis stole from her family: the famous Lady In Gold, a portrait of her beloved Aunt Adele. Partnering with an inexperienced but determined young lawyer Ryan Reynolds, Maria embarks on an epic journey for justice 60 years in the making.

Haunted by his turbulent past, Mad Max believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa. They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the highoctane Road War that follows.

Starring Helen Mirren, Ryan Reynolds
