Russian delegates visit for fuels engagement Story and photo by Airman 1st Class Hailey Haux 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


Chief Master Sgt. Howard Heisey, 86th Logistics Readiness Squadron fuels manager, gives a tour to Russian delegates for a bilateral fuels engagement May 17 on Ramstein.

ussian delegates visited the 86th Logistics Readiness Squadron fuels service center on Ramstein for a bilateral fuels engagement tour May 17. “The U.S.-Russia bilateral engagement fosters an environment of joint cooperation in the field of energy interoperability between the U.S. and the Russian Federation, as well as between NATO and the Russian Federation,” said Maj. Adam Minnich, U.S. European Command

chief of the Joint Petroleum Office. The delegates toured the Fuels Control Center, where Airmen monitor fuel levels and receipts 24 hours a day, seven days a week to ensure sufficient fuel levels are maintained and ready to support aircraft operations. The fuels control center operation is vital to monitoring and directing fuels operations to receive, store, issue and validate quality control and accounting for all jet and ground fuels including diesel, automotive fuel, and liquid oxygen and liquid nitrogen. “The flight issues on average 130 to 140 million gallons of fuel a year,” said Chief Master

Sgt. Howard Heisey, 86th LRS fuels manager. The Russian delegates received a tour of the flightline, including the facilities were the Central European Pipeline System enters the base. They also had the opportunity to see the Type III fuels hydrant system, which provides fuel to aircraft via underground fuel outlets. The hydrant systems used on Ramstein operate on the same basic concept as a fire hydrant. The base has specialized equipment that connects the hydrant outlet to the aircraft to allow rapid refueling, Heisey said. See DELEGATES, Page 2

ore than 50 service members and their families attended the Kindergraves memorial service May 19 in Kaiserslautern. The memorial service is held annually the week following Mother’s Day to honor the children who weren’t able to be buried in America, as well as to pay respect to their parents. Children buried here were no more than 12 months old,

and most died of various childhood diseases or birth complications. “One reason children were buried here was because the policy of the government at the time restricted the movement of the deceased back to America,” said Terence Delay, former Kindergraves chairman. “Second, families who couldn’t afford to send their child back home were offered the opportunity to have their child buried here. “Parents were members of the Department of Defense, most coming

Memorial Day marks beginning of Critical Days of Summer by Maj. Gen. David Scott U.S. Air Forces in Europe vice commander


Memorial Day is a day to remember our fellow Americans who have made the ultimate sacrifice for us and an opportunity to spend time with family and friends. Take this time to honor those who gave their lives to defend our freedoms and those who continue to do so today. Whether you observe this Memorial Day visiting cemeteries and memorial events or use the extended weekend to travel or spend time with family and friends, join us in actively managing risk and staying safe while on- and off-duty.

This year’s Memorial Day weekend marks the beginning of the “Critical Days of Summer” safety campaign and traditionally where each of us begins to increase travel and outdoor activities. The Air Force has lost 218 Airmen in accidents during the last 10 summers — 26 losses in USAFE — largely due to poor risk management, speed and alcohol. This year’s “Critical Days of Summer” safety campaign stresses “Safety — It’s Personal.” It is a personal responsibility to comply with and enforce standards, to intervene when a friend is behaving badly, and to consider the impact of your actions on those you love.

During this period, no one wants to endure the unnecessary loss of another Airman to a preventable mishap. Before the Memorial Day weekend begins, leaders at all levels must lead discussions with each of their Airmen concerning safety, risk management and mishap prevention. Express personal concern for their safety and offer mitigating measures focused on managing risks associated with their work and leisure activities. Use every tool at your disposal to help prevent another mishap this summer. Enjoy the Memorial Day weekend and the summer months ahead, be a good wingman and continue to make safety a personal matter.

Airmen dormitory leadership: your ADLs in action by Staff Sgt. Robert Niter 86th Civil Engineer Squadron The dormitories play a vital role in daily successes on the job and in our missions. The dormitories are both a place Airmen can call home and an establishment where they can relax. The dormitories are kept safe, secure and up to Air Force standards by noncommissioned officers assigned as airmen dorm leaders, or ADLs. A major part of the ADL’s role is to guide, mentor and lead our Air Force’s most junior Airmen. Leadership has realized the importance of off-duty conditions and recently implemented a change in the duty title of those in charge of the dorms from dormitory management to airmen dormi-

Participating in cooperation events like this is beneficial to both sides, Minnich said. “It is significant in developing the ability to work

tory leaders. As part of the switch, dormitory leaders have become an Airman’s outside source to go to in addition to their direct supervisors. Though the ADLs do not replace shop supervisors in the chain of command, they do extend an Airman’s options to seek guidance about quality of life issues. The ADL program aims to address problems left from the old dorm manager program by improving accessibility to dorm managers during duty hours and emphasizing ADLs as mentors. Airmen dorm leader is a specialduty position and only NCOs with above-average enlisted performance reports and recommendations from their commanders are accepted into the program.

residents feel as comfortable as possible talking about their needs and concerns. ADLs also provide mentorship classes, brief new Airmen about the dorms at the First-Term Airman Center, and inform residents who are moving out of the dorms of their entitlements. Residents who are separating from the dorms are helped by the ADLs in preparing their overseas housing allowance, basic allowance for subsistence and occasionally dislocation allowance. The ADLs motivate Airmen to take care of their dorms and get Airmen involved by hosting functions such as dormitory councils. Dorm councils are led by the dorm

The importance of readiness: Administrative assistant My experience as an evacuee hits 50 years of AF service by Senior Airman Aaron-Forrest Wainwright 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs In my short, three-year Air Force career, I have participated in more than 10 exercises and inspections. I’ve always known exercises were an important factor in readiness, but it wasn’t until I participated in a recent noncombatant evacuation operation exercise that I really understood what they were for. The nation was in turmoil. I was an evacuee forced to leave my country to save my life. We were gathered and put onto an aircraft and flown to what was called a “safe haven.” There, we were told that we would have to be processed and screened. I was confused and didn’t know what was going to happen or where I was going. We were shuffled on to buses and transported to our processing site. When I stepped off the bus I swear it was colder than it was before. Loud screeches told me we had to be close to some sort of airfield. They lined us up and checked our bags right away, probably for contraband. After that we were all weighed and asked if we had any medical conditions. I was scared and unsure, but I felt I would be safe. The exercise evaluation team put Airmen to the test with many types of adversities like a power outage, a woman in labor and a man who couldn’t speak English. With each adversity, the scenario became more and more realistic. They handled everything that was thrown at them with ease. This sort of processing line and tracking system is new to the Air Force, and if there was a hiccup, I couldn’t see it. Getting to play a role in the NEO was an experience I won’t forget. I looked around me and, at that point in time, I understood the importance of readiness. As I watched each Airman handle each unique situation, I understood why I was there. I was there to help test the readiness of my fellow Airmen who may actually be charged with evacuating a country if the need ever presents itself. I felt like I could count on the Airmen charged with these duties as an evacuee. They guided me from my confusion. They took what they were doing seriously, with a steadfast attitude to get their job done well. It built my confidence in them and I knew I could trust them to get me to safety. I was happy to be a part of an exercise of this importance. The Air Force is doing more to help remove noncombatants from dangerous places, and with events like Operations Odyssey Dawn to Tomodachi, the Air Force has and will continue to provide enduring relief to those in need.

president and represent the voice of the residents. The council brings both problems and solutions to the ADL’s attention. The dormitory council discusses with the ADLs suggested changes, what can be done better and how the ADLs can better help the dorm residents. The ADLs translate these ideas into action by developing new programs and advocating with wing leadership for resources as needed. The ADLs are in frequent communication with first sergeants, superintendents and the command chiefs about issues in the dorms and are in a unique position to find and fix issues, solve problems, and help our Airmen by working directly with leaders

Story and photo by Staff Sgt. Travis Edwards 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs An administrative assistant for the 435th Air and Space Communications Group will celebrate 50 years of service to the Department of Defense during a ceremony today on Ramstein. Lynne Wimberly, who has been working for the 435th ACOMG since 2005, will hit the actual milestone on June 5. “I’ve had about 50 bosses during my time working in the Air Force, to include deputies,” Wimberly said. “I’ve been fortunate to have had really great bosses, for the most part, which is why I guess the time feels like it has flown by.” “Lynne epitomizes awesomeness,” said Col. Mark Langenderfer, 435th ACOMG commander. “Her best quality … she really cares about Airmen. She takes the time to get to know them when they come up and ask a question and then makes sure they don’t leave with more questions, but more answers. She is truly an amazing person.” Wimberly started her Air Force secretarial career at Stony Brook Air Force Station, Mass., where she worked as an assistant to the 3048th Aviation Depot Group personnel director. About 16 years later, she resigned from civil service only to start back up again two years later after a hiring freeze. “That’s when I had my son Brian,” said the Springfield, Mass., native. “When I tried to get back into civil service I had to wait because of the hiring freeze. But I was fortunate enough to start working again at Scott (AFB), Ill.” Throughout her career, Wimberly worked as an administrative assistant for the Air Force, mostly for communications squadrons, and is now well-versed in secretarial duties. “I’ve been in comm almost my whole career; it’s where I feel comfortable, it’s

across multiple wings in the KMC. As an ADL, I personally enjoyed every aspect of this job and its challenges. Not only is it important for noncommissioned officers to seek out special duties, but it’s good to show that you can succeed outside of your normal element. Being an ADL has given me a better insight to our younger Airmen’s needs and issues, and into how they act and live outside of their workplace. Understanding those who you supervise is very important, and this position can assist in just that. If you are a staff sergeant and are interested in becoming an ADL, contact Master Sgt. Misty Rodriguez at 480-DORM or visit the Dorm Reception Center in Dorm 2413 on Ramstein.

where I fit,” Wimberly said. Her duties while working as an administrative assistant include scheduling the commander’s calendar and travels, editing enlisted performance reports and decorations, clerical work, scheduling, planning for future “big rocks” and a host of other items not included in her job description. “I love what I do and I want to see the mission succeed,” she said. “I’ve been in Germany now for about 27 years and I am by no means a workaholic, but just love my work. I love to travel, too. It’s not always about work.” She continued about what makes the job easy to stay. “It’s the people. They can make or break an assignment,” she said. “With overseas rotations, I get to meet new people all the time; they are who make it enjoyable. “It’s been a great 50 years — how much longer, I don’t know,” she continued. “Nothing is sure except death and taxes.”

Some call him ‘Bob the Bugler’ Story and photo by Rick Scavetta U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern Military members passing Hartmut Hausser’s post outside Landstuhl Regional Medical Center’s emergency room hand their ID cards to the blueuniformed security officer, a witty character whose comments make them laugh as they pass. Some know Hausser simply as the charming Pond’s security officer at U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern, who befriends passersby — a welcoming fixture for LRMC staff, wounded Soldiers and visiting family members. Others call him “Bob the Bugler.” During Memorial Day weekend, and in the weeks to follow, Hausser will perform taps at various stateside sites, including a stop at Arlington National Cemetery. His role as the German representative of the national organization, Bugles Across America, is something Hausser holds dear. “The emotion gets to me, about taps,” Hausser said, as a bus passed by his post to unload wounded service members at the nearby ER entrance. At age 5, Hausser first picked up his father’s German hunting horn, sounding out a few notes. Growing up near Americans in Stuttgart, Hausser recalls taps played on nearby posts. But he first heard taps from his black and white television, as actor Montgomery Clift played the somber tune in the film “From Here To Eternity.” His father pointed out how Clift wasn’t really playing. During the early 1970s, during a Christmas exchange program, Hausser’s father brought an American Soldier home. The Soldier, a Texan who gave Hausser a big belt buckle that he still owns, told Hausser how buglers played taps to end the day in garrison and during funerals. Hausser served as a German army paratrooper and still proudly displays his jump wings. He began working for Pond’s security at U.S. bases during the height of the recent U.S. wars. While at LRMC, a KINDERGRAVES, from Page 1

chaplain asked Hausser to play taps at a memorial for a staff member who died. “Today, I’m honored to play taps on occasion, when needed for memorial services to honor the American Soldiers who paid the ultimate sacrifice, so we can live in freedom,” Hausser said. During a previous stateside trip, Hausser blew taps in Sheridan, Wyo. As the German representative of Bugles Across America, Hausser’s often called upon to render the tribute in Europe. He’s played taps at American cemeteries in France and Belgium as well as on Ramstein. “People have now given me the distinguished honor to take part in a few commemorative events in the U.S.,” Hausser said. “Therefore, I’m very thankful. It’s a great honor.” In Chicago, Hausser takes part in Memorial Day activities, where the theme this year is the 150th anniversary of taps. During the Civil War’s Peninsular Campaign, Gen. Daniel Butterfield wrote taps with bugler Oliver Norton. It was first sounded in July 1862 and became an official bugle call after the war ended. Several stateside anniversary events will take place over the coming weeks, including three days of activities at Berkeley Plantation in Virginia, near where the Union Army was camped, said Jari Villanueva, a retired U.S. Air Force master sergeant and former Arlington bugler.

“It’s wonderful that we have someone like Hartmut who plays for U.S. Soldiers buried (overseas),” Villanueva said. “It’s great that he can come to the states to take part in commemorative events.” After Chicago, Hausser heads to Lafayette, Ind., to meet Blake Powers, the founder of “Cooking With The Troops,” whom Hausser met at LRMC. Then, in Toledo, Ohio, he’ll meet Robert Whalen and Steven Gale, two vascular surgeons who volunteer at LRMC. Whalen, who first met Hausser a couple years ago, said he was surprised to find a former German soldier so dedicated to memorializing fallen troops. “He’s a great man who respects what has been done by the U.S. military,” Whalen said. “It’s just amazing that someone from here is that respectful of what the U.S. troops have done. His playing helps everyone to remember the sacrifice our Soldiers have made for us.” Afterward, in Cleveland, Hausser will play taps at the grave of Pvt. Robert Green, a U.S. Soldier killed at the Wereth massacre. On Dec. 17, 1944, during the Battle of the Bulge, 11 African-Americans were shot by German SS troops in Wereth, Belgium. For the past five years, Hausser played taps at the memorial in the Belgian hamlet. Last year, he met Sandra Green, Pvt. Green’s niece, who suggested he come to Cleveland to play at his grave. Finally, in Virginia, Hausser will be hosted by Landstuhl Hospital Care Project founder Karen Grimord and her husband, Brian. On June 16, Hausser takes part in a wreath laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery. Hausser hopes to play taps there, likely one if the first Germans to do so. “It’s not about the bugler, Harmut Hausser traveling to the United States. It’s all about the Soldiers,” Hausser said. “It’s all about those who deserve to hear taps one last time and their next of kin to hear taps played.

memorial foundation was created,” Delay said. “The sheer purpose of our mission was to ensure the survival and maintenance of the graves. “Currently, every two to three weeks we’re out here with a group of volunteers from around the KMC to keep the site in pristine condition,” he continued. For one military spouse, seeing the graves with her children gave her a new outlook on being a military dependent. “I brought my kids out here to remind them that life for children with parents in the military wasn’t always so easy,” said Krista Novak, wife of Army Sgt. Maj. Bryan Novak, 21st Theater Sustainment Command human resources (G-1) ser-

geant major. “I felt it was important for my kids to know about the tradition of caring for these kids who weren’t able to be brought back to America to be buried.” The annual memorial gives an opportunity for service members and families to pay respect to those children who couldn’t be brought home. “Every year we have a memorial ceremony for them. It gives us a chance to reflect on the challenges and contributions of these military families and the sacrifices they’ve made,” Delay said. “This is a community event, which we’ve brought members of the military and civilian communities together. It’s a celebration of these children’s lives.”

Learn your manners First sergeant The easiest job in the Air Force by Chief Master Sgt. Richard Zaferis 603d Air Operations Center Have I worn the diamond? No. Have I received the training and performed the role of the first sergeant? Yes. It is based on these experiences that I will use to present a clarification of the title of this article. What is the role of the first sergeant? You can look in AFI 36-2618, The Enlisted Force Structure, for an overview or review AFI 36-2113, The First Sergeant, for more detailed information. You will find that first sergeants provide a dedicated focal point for all readiness, health, morale, welfare and quality of life issues within their organizations. They advise commanders, command chiefs and other enlisted Airmen on morale, discipline, mentoring, well-being, recognition and the professional development of enlisted Airmen. They ensure the enlisted force understands the commanders’ policies, goals and objectives. I know you have all heard or seen this before. However, the first sergeant cannot perform all these duties alone. When first sergeants are used as an “easy button” by supervisors, the unit’s discipline and accountability suffer because the lack of ownership in leading people. Supervisors, not just first sergeants, play a key role in maintaining discipline and accountability to ensure the mission success of the unit. The first sergeant is a focal point, not the first line of defense on issues. Here is what we often forget: First sergeants work with fellow NCOs and supervisors to ensure equitable and

effective discipline and the highest level of esprit de corps. Stop relying on the first sergeant to address your every concern with Airmen. Start first with you — and do some research. Get the first sergeant involved when you, as the supervisor, have exhausted your knowledge and resources to ensure readiness, health, morale, welfare and quality of life issues for the Airmen you supervise. However, know there are some issues you immediately take to your first sergeant, such as illegal activities, UCMJ violations or anything potentially causing harm to self or others. If every leader took appropriate actions to engage directly with their Airmen, the first sergeant would have one of the easiest jobs in the Air Force. When a supervisor reaches out to their subordinates and their families, researches resources for information, shares their experiences with other supervisors, and recommends solutions, the supervisor is now working with the first sergeant instead of relying on the first sergeant as an “easy button” to fix the issue. You already have the tools and resources to resolve most personnel issues at your level, so use them. OK, being a first sergeant may not be the easiest job in the Air Force, but engaged supervisors expand the first sergeant’s ability to enhance mission effectiveness with all Airmen in the organization. Learning skills and resources prepares the front-line supervisors of today to be first sergeants or the chiefs of tomorrow by being the visible leaders of our next generation of Airmen.

How many people do you walk by daily without uttering a word or acknowledging their presence? How many people have said hello in passing, only to have you blow them off? Do you watch your fellow Airmen struggle only to assume others will help? Some of you are probably thinking, “Why should I bother? I pass by too many people to say ‘good morning’ to everyone,” or “I am too busy to help.” Take a minute and be honest with yourself. It takes very little effort to extend a greeting or a helping hand. These little things, although seemingly mundane, go a long way in enhancing a sense of community and strengthening relationships — the butterfly effect. You may have noticed the downward spiral of common courtesy, good manners and etiquette. By following the guidelines listed below, we can only hope to start a domino effect that reduces the appearance of impoliteness and lack of concern for others. Say hello — A good indication that a salutation is warranted is eye contact. Once eye contact is established we should feel the need to say hello or give a simple nonverbal gesture, like a smile or a head nod, to acknowledge others. We often find ourselves making excuses like, “They seem angry, rude or looked at me funny,” and use that assumption to avoid saying hi to someone.

On occasions when there is no eye contact, we can always choose to approach the person and say hello. There is no need to wait for them to initiate a conversation first. They might not have seen you because they are preoccupied with other things. Your hello might be the glimmer of hope that distracts them from the daily stressors and bring about a positive attitude. Your small measure of kindness just might be contagious. Respond — Despite how you personally feel about the person, if someone makes an effort to acknowledge you, the least you can do is return the favor. Some people are guilty of reading too much into an innocent hello and talking themselves out of responding. Take the greeting for exactly what it is — a greeting. It’s possible that not all situations will be innocent, but we can’t get so paranoid that we see people every day and walk by without acknowledging them. Give people the benefit of the doubt — Quite a few people tend to ignore your salutations for reasons unknown. Consider the possibility that they might not have heard you. Implement a two-strike process and try extending the greeting again. Anytime you see someone struggling, extend a helping hand. For instance, if you notice a parent carrying groceries while tending to a toddler, it does not hurt to offer to open the door or even give them some assistance.

son doesn’t accept your offer, most likely they will appreciate your generosity. We all have days where we don’t want to be bothered, but we should avoid reflecting our attitude on others. We are each other’s wingman, but what good is a wingman if we can’t trust them? Establishing relationships are not always easy; however, by showing concern for and acknowledging oth-

ers, we can jumpstart the process. People often trust you because they think you care. This sets the platform where people feel comfortable confiding in you. When you visit a small community, town, village or city and it seems like everyone knows each other, you can attribute this atmosphere to close relationships built over years. With time we can achieve that harmony. It all starts with something as simple as, “Hello.”

An iconic high school experience by Maddie Fahlbusch Ramstein High School It’s that time again — that special night where the perfect dress makes a good evening fantastic and where limos are not just for celebrities. Ladies and gentlemen, prom is upon us! Prom only lasts for a few hours but it is an iconic high school experience. Why else would countless movies about high schoolers include prom scenes that are, in some cases, the most dramatic or memorable parts? Those who saw “Mean Girls,” “10 Things I Hate About You” or “Pretty in Pink” know exactly what I mean. Ever wonder where this rite of passage originated and how it became what it is today? First, the word “prom” is short for the word “promenade,” which means a formal pageantry or party. Schools organized them so middle-class children could partake in a debutante ball-like experience. Ironically, having an annual prom originated in colleges and gradually high schools followed suit by organizing their own. Historians estimate that the first college proms occurred in the late 1800s and the original high school proms somewhere around the 1930s. The cool part about prom is that it is both a timeless tradition as well as a force that evolves with the ages. One aspect, however, is always the same: it is a night meant for decadence. In the last 10 years, it is not uncommon for girls to spend at least $200 on just their dress alone. If you account for limo rentals, shoes, accessories and hair appointments, the cost climbs even higher. Prom is one of the most magical nights for a teenage girl but it is one of the most expensive for parents. For those attending their prom in the next few weeks, enjoy it. Embrace it. It’s a time meant for celebration that you made it through another year, or for seniors, your last year. Live it up with the people who you have been forced to spend the past 10 months with and have an unforgettable night. Dance like a crazy person. Feel like James Bond in your tux or a beauty queen in your dress. Do the “Cupid Shuffle” like a pro because the DJ will undoubtedly play it. Create some awesome memories and make this special night yours.

Celebrate May, Asian Pacific American Heritage by 2nd Lt. Kay M. Nissen 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


very year, Asian Pacific Islanders find ways to celebrate and share their culture and contributions during the month of May. I consider myself lucky to have grown up on different Air Force bases throughout PACOM. I am proud to associate myself with Asians and Pacific Islanders, given both my heritage and my upbringing. I was born in Korea at an Army hospital while my father was stationed at Kunsan Air Base. We moved to Yokota Air Base, Japan, shortly after, followed by another move to Hickam Air Force Base, Hawaii. During this time, I remember being exposed to many different Asian and Pacific Island cultures, with my father bringing souvenirs back from his temporary duties to the Philippines, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand and many other places. Growing up in the Pacific allowed me to learn

different traditions and customs through both education and interaction. Many of these experiences shaped who I am today, and I am glad to know that I am not alone in

receiving multicultural opportunities. This multicultural opportunity found in the military allows service members to embrace our American heritage. I think of “E pluribus unum” (Latin for “out of many, one”) not as a defining motto, but as a goal for all members to strive for. With every multicultural person I interact with, I find cultures I can learn to love, respect and embrace. For your own opportunity to learn about the Asian Pacific American Heritage, a luncheon is scheduled to take place from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Wednesday in suites one and two of the Ramstein Officers’ Club. During these celebrations, attendees have the opportunity to taste the different foods from various Asian countries, watch cultural performances and learn more about Asian American history and culture. To purchase tickets for the luncheon, call Master Sgt. Cate Gaco-Escalera at 479-2620 or e-mail

Where there’s coffee, there’s community Story and photo by Rick Scavetta U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern


nside the new Java Cafe on Kleber Kaserne, earthy smells of ground espresso brewing and sweet smelling deserts entice customers as sounds of hot, steamy, frothing milk compliments blenders crushing ice and juice into smoothies. But the Java Cafes at U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern are more than just places for Soldiers, civilians and family members to sip coffee drinks and eat snacks. In the KMC, Java Cafes offer a place for the community to bond, said Kassi Piggee, spouse of the KMC’s senior Army leader. “This is a way to bring us all together into one place to be able to socialize in fellowship and get to know each other, so we don’t lose those bonds that we normally have at home,” Piggee said. “We develop our own Army family here in the Kaiserslautern community.” Kleber’s Java Cafe opened May 14 inside the recently renovated KMC Onstage — Kaiserslautern’s award winning community theater program — which opened its production of “Dirty Rotten

Scoundrels” with a free coffee drink of the same name. Behind the counter on opening day, barista Dominique Coleman, 26, prepared frozen coffee lattes, finishing them with drizzled caramel over whipped cream. Already, customers expressed gladness over having a coffee shop at Kleber Kaserne, she said. “They like the new renovations, they like that we have good coffee, they are impressed and amazed,” Coleman said. “They are happy to not have to go very Soldiers, civilians and family members order coffee drinks at the new Java Cafe on Kleber Kaserne. far for coffee.” Piggee, whose husband, access to great coffee, said relax and enjoy a delicious need, Pelletier said.

From idea to reality: Programs flight keeps the ball rolling by Staff Sgt. Travis Edwards 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs What would you do with $70.4 million? Buy a new car or house — pay off bills or a student loan. Would you give it away or even buy a tropical island? What about ensuring military structures are maintained? Or constructing new buildings on base and managing contracts for more than 25,000 personnel? Does it still sound fun? That is exactly what the 86th Civil Engineer Squadron Programs Flight does every year. Eric Rushing, 86th CES programs flight chief, and his team of about 100 Airmen, military, civilian and locals manage all construction requests that come through his office that are not able to be fulfilled by the 786th CES. “When the job gets too big

7th CSC supports shooting competition Story and photo by Spc. Glenn Anderson 221st Public Affairs Detachment WACKERNHEIM, Germany — In partnership with the “Reservistenkameradshaft” (the Association of Reservist of the German Armed Forces — RK Geisel), U.S. Army Reserve Soldiers from the 7th Civil Support Command based in Kaiserslautern supported the 29th annual Monte Kali Pokal shooting competition here May 10 to 12. The event was open to military units throughout NATO and other Partnership for Peace nations in the European community. “This is one of the premier marksmanship competitions in Europe,” said Brig. Gen. Mark Hendrix, commander of the 7th CSC. The contest had more than 2,000 competitors and offered members a chance to fire different weapons from several different nations. “Only here can these Soldiers have a real chance to pick up other weapons from other countries and learn their operation,” said Andreas Kern, president and coordinator of the event. “The only other way would be in a wartime environment, and that may not be enough time to really learn how each weapon works.” The 7th CSC was asked by U.S. Army Europe to support the event after the U.S. Army’s 1st Armored Division, who sponsored the event in the past several years, relocated to the U.S. “We have invited Army members from all over Europe to participate in this yearly event,” Kern said. “We are proud to have the 7th Civil Support Command assisting us for the first time this year.”

The 7th CSC assisted with the event by providing the range and the medical and range safety personnel. They also lent their organic U.S. partnership presence to work with and support all participating countries. “We brought a small group of top caliber Soldiers with us to help out here,” said Master Sgt. Greg Doles, the noncommissioned officer in charge of brigade operations for the 361st CA Bde. “We hope to bring calm to this friendly competition by offering our knowledge and experience of range safety.” The gorgeous weather during the three days led to a county fair type atmosphere with several tents set up displaying various weapons from several different countries, along with a military DJ playing music next to the simulated grenade range. “This is a great event and we are enjoying our day out here,” said Staff Sgt. David Barracks, a rifleman with the 177th Field Artillery Battalion out of Schweinfurt during the first day of the event. Barracks, along with three other members of his unit, participated in the Monte Kali competition. Rounds flew as participants awaited their turn to fire the various weapons. “Although there are some really long lines to fire some of these weapons here, it is going very smoothly,” Barracks said. Some military members used the opportunity to familiarize themselves with NATO and other partner countries’ weapons they might experience on future joint deployments or operations. “The partnerships that we are forming with other countries are really important,” said Italian army Sgt. Marcello Erbaggio, an airborne specialist with the Folgore Parachute Brigade, 186th Regiment. “I

remember that I was deployed with the Spanish army as well as the Americans, and I did not know anything about their weapons at the time … now I do.” “I want to thank the 7th CSC for being here to take over for the 1st AD and offering their support and camaraderie for the Monte Kali here,” Kern said. “A special thanks also must go to the 457th Civil Affairs Battalion for their effort and support.” Soldiers could be seen mingling not only amongst themselves, but also with service members from other partner nations. This highlighted the esprit de corps that the event generates every year. “Besides being a great training opportunity, it’s a chance to show our NATO partners and others here that our commitment to Europe is as strong as ever,” Hendrix said.

Germans observe Pentecost Sunday, Monday by Petra Lessoing 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Germans observe “Pfingsten,” or Pentecost, Sunday and Monday. The religious fest takes its name from the Greek word “pentekoste,” which means 50th. Christians celebrate Pentecost, also called Whitsun, the 50th day after Easter because they believe that’s when God sent down his Holy Spirit. After receiving the Holy Spirit, the Apostles started spreading the new Gospel into the world. That’s why the fest is also to celebrate the foundation of church.

In Old Testament times, the fest had a character of a harvest fest and in late Judaism, Pentecost was the day to commemorate the foundation of the Israelites in the Sinai, 50 days after the exodus from under the Egyptian oppression. Pentecost Monday is considered an official holiday in Germany. Stores, banks and official institutions will be closed. Some areas in Germany observe specific Pentecostal customs. In Bavaria, people dress in the national costumes of their region, walk in proCourtesy photo

by Capt. Shamana Stevens 86th Aerospace Medicine Squadron What is blood pressure? Blood pressure is the force blood exerts within the arteries of the circulatory system. When it is measured, there are two readings taken, expressed in millimeters of mercury, or mmHg, written as one number above or before the other. For example, 125/80. The top number is called the systolic, which represents the pressure of blood flow when the heart is contracting or beating. The diastolic, the bottom number, represents the pressure of blood flow when the heart is at rest or between beats. Normal blood pressure is a systolic of 120 or less and a diastolic of 80 or less. When blood pressure levels are above these numbers, they are considered prehypertensive until reaching 140/90, which is called hypertention. Facts about hypertension About 1 in 3 U.S. adults — an estimated 68 million — have high blood pressure. High blood pressure is a major risk factor for heart disease, stroke, congestive heart failure and kidney disease. High blood pressure was listed as a primary or contributing cause of death for more than 347,000 Americans in 2008. In 2010, high blood pressure was projected to cost the U.S. $93.5 billion in health care services, medications and missed days of work. Only 50 percent of U.S. adults with high blood pressure have it under control. Almost 30 percent of American adults have prehypertension — blood pressure numbers that are higher than normal, but not yet in the high blood pressure range. Prehypertension raises your risk for high blood pressure. Hypertension is the second most prevalent diagnosis among Ramstein Clinic enrollees. Hypertension has been called the “silent killer,” and with good reason. In most cases, there are no symptoms. Many people discover they have hypertension at a medical or dental visit during routine screening. Causes of hypertension Oftentimes, the cause of high blood pressure is unknown and referred to as “essential hypertension.” However, research has indi-

cated several contributing factors, including smoking, being overweight/obese, consuming more than one to two alcoholic beverages daily, stress, genetics/family history, living a sedentary lifestyle and salt intake. Hypertension can also be caused by other existing medical conditions. This is called secondary hypertension. Examples of conditions that cause high blood pressure are chronic kidney disease and thyroid and adrenal abnormalities. Prevention The risk of developing hypertension increases with age. However, there are steps you can take to thwart hypertension from happening to you. First of all, adopt a healthy lifestyle. This is characterized by achieving and/or maintaining a healthy weight; physical activity, healthy eating patterns that emphasize fresh, un- or minimally processed food (vegetables, fruits); reducing sodium intake and if enjoyed, drink alcohol in moderation. Also, quitting the habit of smoking has a profound positive effect on blood pressure. Already diagnosed? If you have been diagnosed with hypertension, do your very best to follow the plan agreed upon with your health care provider. In addition to the aforementioned prevention techniques, take your medication as prescribed. If you are experiencing unwanted or intolerable side effects, make an appointment with your provider to discuss how those effects can be mitigated. Long-term consequences of hypertension Again, hypertension is the silent killer. Having uncontrolled hypertension can lead to impaired vision and blindness, kidney disease and kidney failure due to inordinate stress on the vessels that supply them, and premature death due to heart disease and stroke. Take home message High blood pressure is a manageable condition. If you have concerns related to your blood pressure, call your primary care provider for an appointment. Do not wait for a sign or symptom to alert you of hypertension — doing so can have very negative health consequences. Know your numbers!

Eric Walton escapes a Darmstadt defender.

Pikes upend Diamonds In their season opener, the Kaiserslautern Pikes beat the Darmstadt Diamonds on their home field 26-23. This was a shock to many in the league as the Diamonds were considered a title contender in the Germany Football League’s second division, while the Pikes were the newcomers to the second league after winning last season’s Regional Center Championship (third division). Pikes Head Coach Jason Nowlin had every reason to be happy. “We were very disciplined and always believed in ourselves, even after we fell behind,” he said. It was the middle of the third quarter when the Pikes trailed 6-14. Kaiserslautern had to recover from two quick Darmstadt touchdowns. In the first half, when the defenses dominated the action in front of 900 spectators, only the Pikes brought points on the board. After missing a field goal in the previous drive, quarterback Greg Cross, who joined the team from the University of Pittsburgh, threw a great pass and found wide receiver Timo Grieser in the end zone to take a 6-0 lead. Unfortunately, the Pikes missed the point after. Though the Diamonds controlled the Pikes’ running game, the Darmstadt offense had a hard time in the first half gaining yards against a aggressive Pikes. In the second half, the Pikes defense seemed to control the game again. Linebacker Brian Watkins, who was all over the field with linebacker Kamil Mazur, stopped a punt on the opponents 1-yard line. The pressure on the Darmstadt offense was big since the Pikes were aggressively going for a safety. But Darmstadt running back Andreas Baumann ran through the middle, found a gap and went 99 yards to a touchdown to give a 7-6 lead for the Diamonds. Things seemed to run as everybody expected before the game, since the Pikes came in as the underdog.

Darmstadt went straight down the field in its next offensive series. After a pass from Shane Sabine to Torsten Hartmann, they took a 14-6 lead. But the Pikes came back. Eric Walton took a hand off and raced 35 yards for the second Pikes touchdown to make it 12-14. A successful two-point conversion evened the score at 14. Now, it was up to the Diamonds to respond. But Pikes cornerback Roman Knap stopped the home team with an interception to give the Pikes great field position. On fourth down and 5 to go, Greg Cross kept the ball and ran 15 yards for a touchdown for a 20-14 lead for the Pikes. A poor PAT attempt fell short and Darmstadt returned it for two points. The crowd went wild, but with four minutes left in the game Cross destroyed all hopes of a Darmstadt comeback by taking the ball downfield for his second touchdown run. With one minute left, Diamonds quarterback Sabine again found WR Hartmann in the end zone for the final 23-26 score. But Joachim Jäger secured the following onside kick and the Pikes took a knee to end the game. Nowlin was said he was more than satisfied with Cross’ performance — his first match for the club. “Greg did a good job of controlling our offense and making plays when he had to,” Nowlin said. Eric Walton finished with 148 yards on 19 carries. On the defensive side of the ball, he pointed out the efforts of the two linebackers, Watkins (five tackles, one sack) and Mazur (seven tackles, two sacks), who were involved in almost every tackle. “It was a great way to start our season, but if we want to continue to win games, we will have to make improvements in a lot of areas,” Nowlin said. The Pikes play again Saturday at Holzgerligen versus the Twisters. The Pikes home opener will take place June 9 against Darmstadt. (by Mortiz Kircher)

Kaiserslautern American PENTECOST, from Page 20

cessions to church and pray for a good harvest. In Franconia, horsemen perform the annual Pentecostal ride. Led by priests, they carry church banners and crosses to church. In the KMC, the towns of Schmalenberg and Schopp stick to some Pentecostal traditions. In Schmalenberg, boys and men cut branches from pines, birches and brooms and create three skirts, which the so-called “Quack” has to wear from his neck down during the parade through town. He also wears a hat made of thin rods. The “Quack” figure symbolizes spring. Sunday afternoon, children go from house to house and collect flowers, which they tie to the hat as well. The men spend the night in a barn, watch the green costume and, from time to time, go through town singing the traditional “Quack” song. At 10 a.m. Monday, a parade featuring the “Quack” in his costume and children carrying colored Pentecost rods will pass through Schmalenberg led by a colorful decorated horse. A village fest with eating of wood-stove bread is scheduled to start after the ride. Here, visitors can taste bread baked in the historical village baking oven. In Schopp, the Pentecostal ride through the village usually starts at 6 a.m. Pentecost Monday. The biggest traditional Pentecost event in the vicinity is the historical auction of a billy goat in Deidesheim every Tuesday after Pentecost. For the 606th time this event takes place. According to a document from 1404 by King Ruprecht, residents of Lambrecht, which is a neighboring town of Deidesheim, had the right to use the Deidesheim forests as pastureland. Contracts

between the former monastery of Lambrecht and the town of Deidesheim mention that people in Lambrecht had to pay with a good-looking billy goat for the use in the forests. The youngest citizen of Lambrecht had to take the billy goat to Deidesheim and tie it to the town hall before sunrise the Tuesday after Pentecost. He then received a bottle of wine and a cheese sandwich. In the late afternoon, the billy goat was put up for auction to fill the town’s cash box. Throughout the years there was a lot of arguing about the shape and the condition of the billy goat. In 1808, Napoleon even got involved and signed an edict saying the pasture rights would be granted for a “well horned and capable billy goat.” Between the years 1851 and 1857, the billy goats were not accepted. The case had to be taken to the Zweibrücken court, which decided that in 1858 eight billy goats had to be delivered. Today, it’s up to the most recently married couple to deliver the billy goat. Together with the mayor of Lambrecht and other officials, they walk to the Deidesheim town hall. According to new regulations they don’t have to arrive before 10 a.m. Tuesday. Here, the Deidesheim city council, school children and groups in national costumes greet the Lambrecht group. A fest with music, folks group dancing, drinking and eating starts in the afternoon. The traditional auction is from 5:45 to 6 p.m. The prices paid for the billy goat reflect the people’s economical situation. In good years, people paid up to €5,000 for the billy goat. Last year, a private person bought the goat for €2,700. Deidesheim is located on the German Wine Street between Bad Dürkheim and Neustadt.

Ramstein hosts volleyball tournament Story and photo by Airman 1st Class Hailey Haux 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs The 2012 U.S. Forces in Europe men’s and women’s Volleyball Championship was held May 20 at the Ramstein Southside Fitness Center. The Ramstein men’s volleyball team defeated Lakenheath 25-20 in the first game and 25-19 in the second for the championship title, while the Aviano women’s team beat Ramstein 25-22 and 25-19 in a close match. With nine men’s teams and five women’s teams the competition on the court was fierce. “There was a lot of tough competition this year,” said Nick Kaplan, Ramstein’s men’s team captain. “Every team brought their A-game to this tournament.” In the women’s division, Aviano won with a narrow victory over Ramstein in the first game. Ramstein played hard but they just couldn’t overcome Aviano’s tenacity. “We didn’t have a single easy game this whole tournament,” said Jamie Faughn, Aviano’s women’s team captain. “The Ramstein team was ahead so we had to get it together and come from behind a couple times.”

KMC golf tournament

The KMC Sergeants Major Association Annual Golf Tournament at the Woodlawn Golf Course is scheduled for June 1 starting at 8 a.m. The tournament format is a four-person scramble costing $60 per player. The tournament fee includes the green fees, golf cart, and lunch. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three teams. Proceeds from the event will support numerous organizations in the local community. To register a team or for more information, e-mail KMCSGMA@

One of the team captains said a key to winning was being able to change their style of play throughout the tournament. “Every team plays different and we had to adjust accordingly,” Kaplan said. “If a team has strong players on the left side, we needed to play strong on the left side as well.” Playing a total of seven games each, the two championship teams showed what can be accomplished with teamwork and believing in their teammates. “The reason we do so well is we believe in each other,” said Christi Williams, Aviano player. “It’s all about our teamwork and communicating with your team on the court.” This isn’t a game played by an individual, it’s a team sport, said the Ramstein men’s team captain. “Teamwork is the key to volleyball,” Kaplan said. “It doesn’t work well if you have an individual playing their own game. We all needed to come together and work hard as a team to come out on top.” As the last major event for the volleyball season comes to a close, both teams are sad the season is over. “Even though it’s the end of the season we are still going to be playing a few games here and there,” said Kaplan. “We had a great season and a great team.”
