Soldiers from the 21st Theater Sustainment Command, 7th Civil Support Command’s 773rd Civil Support Team, hosted Bulgarian army soldiers to demonstrate the chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear assets available to the 773rd CST, and to promote a partnership between the two countries May 14 to 18. “The 773rd CST is supporting the European Command’s Theater Cooperation Program by building partner capacity with the nations

that we interact with, Bulgaria being one of these,” said Lt. Col. Leslie M. Dillard, 773rd CST commander. “I am honored that we were chosen to host the Bulgarian contingent. It’s an opportunity for the 773rd, as the only CBRN asset in the EUCOM area of responsibility, to share our knowledge with a sister battalion.” Supporting the 773rd CST training were members of the 196th Medical Support Unit, 7th CSC, along with the U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern’s Fire Department. During the event, the Bulgarian CBRN Soldiers learned how to sample an agent, conduct decontamination operations, analyze

Report of Surveys – It’s everyone’s responsibility by Malik Sultan 86th Logistics Readiness Group



Report of Survey is the required documenting process for any Air Force property that has been lost, damaged or destroyed at an expense of $500 or more. This includes supply and material management, automatic data processing equipment, land mobile radios, housing, individual protection equipment, some onetime purchases and all government vehicles, including leased and rented vehicles. This is a mandated program reportable and directly responsible to the wing commander. During fiscal year 2012, the 86th Airlift Wing reported a loss of $1.2 million (an increase of $676,000 from the previous year). This increase and total loss is unacceptable for a military and civilian community that has been entrusted to safeguard our resources. Although the fault cannot be placed on one entity, responsibility can be imposed down to the personal

level, and our commanders will enforce maximum accountability. A recent ROS AFSO21 event pinpointed equipment accountability, reporting and training as the primary program shortfalls. Equipment accountability is not only the responsibility of each unit’s equipment custodian, it is also the responsibility of each member of the unit. Military members and civilian employees are responsible for all resources in their possession and around them. This pertains to computers being moved without documentation, mobility gear being left in vehicles, damage to housing units and damage to vehicles. In essence, we need to protect our government resources as if they were our own. Under the wing’s new ROS initiative, all negligent personnel will be held accountable for losses and damages under their control as outlined in Air Force Manual 23-220. Reporting is our second shortfall within the ROS program. Contrary to belief, the ROS process is fairly simple and is totally electronic. Our

problem is that we are not reporting. During the AFSO21 event, four units submitted reports that listed an item that has been missing for more than 365 days. This means the annual inventories had been conducted incorrectly or not at all. There were also 35 units that had not reported a single loss. Is this possible? Yes, but quite unlikely. As a wing, we must inventory at least annually and report our losses immediately. As an improvement, a system of inventory checks and balances will be implemented to identify units that have losses and have not reported them. Our final shortfall is training. Our current squadron commander, equipment custodian and unit ROS manager training programs are being revised. Every individual in these key positions will be retrained regardless of their previous training dates. This training will be conducted by the 86th Logistics Readiness Group ROS office, 86th Medical Group, 86th Communications Squadron and the 86th Logistics Readiness Squadron. Each squadron will be

required to provide alternate and primary equipment custodians and ROS managers. These individuals will be directly responsible to their respective commanders and will be the focal point for lost, damaged or destroyed resources within their control. With that being said, these selected individuals must take their training seriously and actively execute the duties appointed to them. During this time of sequestration, or any other time for that matter, we simply cannot afford $1.2 million in losses annually. In the future, these losses will also come at a price to some of our total force members. Although loss prevention is our most important issue, some members and/or civilians may experience a financial burden should they be found liable in a ROS investigation. Our new program is scheduled to be fully operational in FY 2014. The 86th AW has always excelled whenever met with adversity, and I’m sure we can overcome this challenge as well. It is vitally important to protect our resources, so we can protect our families and our country.

1st Sergeants’ Corner: What is your legacy? by Senior Master Sgt. Ray Bradley 86th Vehicle Readiness Squadron first sergeant A couple of years ago my son was in my living room with a box of cereal. He grabbed the box and started spinning it around. Can you guess what happened next? Of course you can. Cereal went flying everywhere. After, he looked at me in sheer terror. Our conversation went something like this: “What were you thinking?” I said. “Dad, the box was closed!” I could almost hear the fear in his voice and see his smile on the inside. “Son, just because you closed the top of the box doesn’t mean it won’t fly open,” I said. “I will eat them off the floor, Dad,” he said.

Military transportation commander visits Sembach

Air Force Gen. William Fraser, commander of U.S. Transportation Command, presents commander’s coins for excellence to Staff Sgt. Daniel Verastegui and Stacey Vande Linde of the 598th Transportation brigade during a recent visit to Sembach Kaserne.

rated units and two U.S. Army brigades. “Our technicians have disposed of hundreds of thousands of pounds of explosives over the past 10 years,” said Capt. Brandon Goebel, 886th Civil Engineer Squadron EOD flight commander. “Between home station and contingency operations, an EOD technician can be expected to destroy explosive hazards ranging from small arms ammunition to 2,000 pound airdropped bombs.” As an air and space expeditionary force enabler, the EOD flight has a high deployment rate, as the bulk of their mission takes place downrange. EOD teams train extensively for deployment scenarios, such as roadside bombs and improvised explosive devices. “We are part of an everevolving game of cat and mouse with our adversaries,” Goebel said. “One side will modify their tactics and procedures while the other adjusts

accordingly. This is truly the greatest challenge of EOD, and only continuous training keeps us on our edge.” The job downrange is extremely hazardous. EOD members put their lives on the line every day to get the job done. Ramstein EOD supports various missions, including operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom, as well as presidential travel, range clearance and humanitarian operations. “EOD is such a small career field that has been through so much together. It is one of the tightest communities in the military,” Goebel said.

areas of operation. “We are honored to have the general visit us here,” said Lt. Col. Kurt Kehoe, brigade executive officer. “The entire brigade has been extremely busy with consolidating our headquarters and keeping the mission of support to EUCOM and AFRICOM.”

Officers from the brigade, part of the Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command, updated Fraser on European and African operations that support EUCOM and U.S. Africa Command. Fraser, in turn, provided feedback on his recent visits with the 838th and 839th Transportation Battalions, units that support Operation Enduring Freedom. “It was important to hear his views of how the strategic picture links together,” said Lt. Col. John Gallagher, the 838th commander. “The missions that the brigade and both battalions are performing are making it possible to carry out our national foreign policy and military strategy.” The 598th Transportation Brigade headquarters recently relocated from The Netherlands to U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern. Fraser and his staff toured workspaces recently renovated by the garrison and talked with staff members.

“This was a very important visit for the brigade and its workforce,” said Col. Matthew Redding, the 598th commander. “The general and his staff helped us better understand the many challenges we will face in coming years.”

One Airman’s story of resilience by Airman 1st Class Trevor Rhynes 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

“I grew up with a hard working father and a great mom who was active in the community … I was very fortunate,” said Master Sgt. Etienne Tousignant, 86th Force Support Squadron career assistance adviser. “So, when I tell my story people always wonder, ‘What’s wrong with this guy? Where did he go wrong?’” Tousignant’s real story started when he was a mischievous youngster. “The summer after my junior year was when I got busted for the first time by the police. One of my friends and I were at a store and we shoplifted,” he said. “When my parents came to pick me up, they gave me a look when they got there that made me think it was the end of the world.” Life didn’t get any better for Tousignant. People began to bully and haze him. He was threatened with expulsion after a confrontation in the locker room. “One day after ski practice, the best skier on the team took my clothes and ran out into the hallway. I put on what clothes I had and ran out after him,” he said. “That’s when my whole world changed, because I assaulted him. “I got carted off to a juvenile detention center and sat in solitary confinement, where they slid food under a crack in the door,” the Anchorage, Alaska, native said. Without an outside view, Tousignant didn’t know what time of day it was. His only view was a storage area. Tousignant said he gave up spending time with other people to spend time by himself. “I didn’t want anything to do with whatever was going on around me, so I would voluntarily go back to solitary and stay there,” he said. “I don’t remember when, but eventually, we got carted off to the courtroom.” The court found the person Tousignant assaulted was a bully, but still sentenced Tousignant to two years probation and hours of community service. After the hearing, Tousignant couldn’t leave his parents’ sight and couldn’t go back to school because he was expelled from the district.

His only option was homes chooling, but Tousignant’s mother wanted more for him. He went to Fairbanks, Alaska, where he stayed with three different families. He graduated high school, told his parents he was joining the Air Force and left for San Antonio months later. “After graduating basic training, I knew that I never wanted to make a mistake again,” he said. “This created a lot of anxiety for me, so when I showed up to work late once I broke into tears.” Tousignant went on to Kadena Air Base, Japan, where the tropical island was a big change from Alaska. “I had no idea what to do with myself when I got there, so I drank,” he said. “I ended up making a friend who later on found me with a bottle in one hand and a knife in the other. He told his chain of command, who told mine.” His supervisor sat him down and gave Tousignant two options: get help yourself or the commander would order him to get help. “My supervisor put me in the car, drove me to mental health and I self-identified, which was the best choice I ever made,” he said. Tousignant credits the camaraderie of the NCOs and the Airmen for helping him through his situation. “At that point in my life I believed five things to be true: I wasn’t staying in the Air Force, that I would never get married, never be an NCO, didn’t believe in God and that I wasn’t going to live very long,” he said. “I thought that was going to be my life, but through those people I found that none of that was true. “I found my spirituality, made staff sergeant, found out that the Air Force was good for me and I wanted to stay in because of the people, and it was great when I met my first wife,” he continued. They dated for a year before getting married. Two months after they got married, his wife started having problems at work. “Things started getting difficult for her. She was battling with supervisors because she felt she was overworked,” he said. “She was miserable. Her battles at work coupled with events in her youth led to emotional problems.” Another two months passed when Tousignant

found his wife lying in the bath tub next to a knife with alcohol and countless pills. He took her to the hospital against her wishes, where her stomach was pumped and she was checked into the clinic. “I visited her every day, but she was mad at me for putting her in the hospital,” he said. “Even after my own issues, I couldn’t relate to what she was going through. As time went on, I got more distant from her, and after a year or so, our marriage ended.” Hindsight led Tousignant to believe there is never a bad opportunity to talk to a military family life consultant, saying he’s done it at every base he’s been. “I’ve been asked, ‘Why are you so driven? Why do you get so involved?’ and I tell them it’s because I changed somebody’s life in high school. I took what could have been theirs and changed it forever,” he said. “I don’t know how to do things any other way. If I could spend the rest of my life helping people out I would and I will, because I have something to make up for as far as I’m concerned.” Times of stress remind Tousignant of a movie quote: “Life’s a garden. Dig it. Never give up. Keep on keeping on.” (Editor’s Note: This is the first part in an ongoing series where Ramstein Airmen share their stories with the community.)

Are you a ‘capital A’ Airman? by Chief Master Sgt. Lewis Holston Jr. 37th Airlift Squadron superintendent Are you a “capital A” Airman? The second part of this question is: Are there any “lower case A” Airmen? Are we so caught up in who we are that we really need to differentiate between a “capital A” Airman as opposed to the Airman we profess to be according to our creed? Our Air Force is suffering from an identity crisis. The pride we have in the rank and position we hold sometimes blurs the focus on our warrior ethos. There are no “lower case A,” or little, Airmen in our Air Force. Even if one looks at the youngest among our force, they are all spelled with a capital A, and that is appropriate. These assumed “lower case A” Airmen make up the majority of the blood, sweat and tears it takes to fly, fight and win in today’s Air Force. They are working the long hours to get the job done and will ultimately be at the tip of the spear pulling the triggers that kill the enemies of our nation. Let’s get over ourselves and lead these wingmen, leaders and warriors to the victories our nation demands. As one reads this, they may think it only speaks to the junior enlisted ranks, but that would be a wrong assumption. We are all Airmen and warriors who have answered our nation’s call. It’s time we leave the grammar class to our English teachers and get on with leading our people at every level despite their position. The art of leadership is not about who we are, but rather what we do to influence Airmen to accomplish the complex mission set before us. A lot of time is spent crafting visions and mission statements that encapsulate each Airman at every stage of their development. We want to ensure everyone is included as we chart these paths to success. Here’s a suggestion: Say what needs to be said, do what needs to be done and serve every Airman with equal dedication. If one asks a Marine, Soldier, Sailor or Guardian whether they are a capital M, S or G, they might get looks of confusion. We can learn a great deal from our joint partners about heritage, time-honored traditions and pride in the uniforms they wear in service to our great nation. It seems that sometimes as Airmen we are still trying to find our place among our joint partners. There should be great pride in the fact that we are Airmen and part of a mighty force. Our core competencies and distinct capabilities should speak for themselves. We bring a decisive force to and above the battlefield. We are warriors pitted side by side with our joint and coalition partners. There is no place for “lower case A” Airmen in today’s Air Force.

10th EAEF help support wounded warriors by Airman 1st Class Dymekre Allen 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs The 10th Expeditionary Aeromedical Evacuation Flight is comprised of 84 highly trained and qualified Airmen from evacuation squadrons and medical units throughout the Air Force Reserve, Guard and active duty whose mission is to provide in-flight medical care and bring home wounded warriors. “We have a unique mission here on Ramstein,” said Capt. Brian Cortellessa, critical care air transport team nurse. “It’s very rewarding to do what we do … we provide downrange expert support for anyone that is evacuated on our flights.” The 10th EAEF consists of a crew management team responsible for leadership, logistics and administration. The flight conducts tours ranging from 30 to 180 days and

is currently located here to support air evacuation missions for U.S. Central command, European command and Africa command. Within the EAEF there are four specialized critical care air transport teams. Each team is comprised of three medical technicians who create and operate a portable intensive care unit on board any transport aircraft and turn almost any airframe into a flying intensive care unit within minutes. “We are saving lives,” said Maj. David Legendre, 10th EAEF director of operations. “The service members do their part downrange to help support the mission, so heaven forbid if anything should happen to them we could provide support in less than 24 hours.” CCATT teams have a physician specializing in an area such as critical care, emergency medicine, anesthesiology and surgery, along with a critical care nurse and a respiratory therapist.

The EAEF also works alongside the tactical critical care evacuation teams that remain downrange to provide as much medical treatment as possible to patients in critical condition before they are evacuated back to Ramstein. “When warfighters are in need, they know that we’ll always be here to provide them with care,” Cortellesa said. The 10th EAEF also ensures they provide adequate medical support to not only service members but to any coalition members or civilians who are in need of their skills. Legendre said the EAEF are protectors of life who are dedicated to their mission and their joint effort to support the medical groups here on Ramstein. “I couldn’t think of a better population of people to provide my expertise to,” Cortellesa said. “I’m proud of the work we do in the EAEF.”

Anderson 221st Public Affairs Detachment, 7th Civil Support Command, 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs An Army Reserve physician assigned to the 196th Medical Support Unit of the 21st Theater Sustainment Command’s 7th Civil Support Command assisted in a partner nation training event with the Bulgarian army May 14 to 18. Neurologist Maj. James Joubert shared his expertise in the training that focused on increasing understanding of the chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear equipment and consequence management environments. “This is really gratifying to participate in promoting a partnership with a similar unit from a foreign country,” Joubert said. “This unique opportunity allows for me to increase my medical skills as an Army physician. I enjoy being a part of this process, as it is so radically different from what I do in my civilian capacity.” When not participating in unit training

each month, Joubert works as a Department of the Army civilian neurologist at the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center. He is one of only 10 neurologists in the U.S. Army Reserve. “I am excited for the 196th MSU and their opportunity of being able to work with the 773rd Civil Support Team in the months to come,” Joubert said. “In comparison to units that I have worked with in the past, this is a specialized niche that the 196th MSU is creating for itself.” This is not the first time that Joubert has worked with foreign military members. “We were tasked to evaluate and make recommendations to a foreign military hospital as to how they could process and deliver their medical care,” Joubert said. “Major Joubert is an expert in his field,” said Col. Jenifer J. Hug, commander of the 196th MSU. “It has been a pleasure having someone of his stature in our unit.” When asked about the experience of working with his fellow reservists, Joubert said, “It has been a pleasure working with the 7th CSC. The Soldiers here are clearly masters of their trade.”

The 773rd CST mentorship assisted in the Bulgarian Army’s development of a new CBRN doctrine according to NATO standards. “We are here to learn what the 773rd has to offer in CBRN and see if we can take some of the experiences back to our country along with some of the techniques that they use,” said Bulgarian army Sgt. Peter Evgeniev Dzhongov, a chemical sergeant with Company 1 CBRN, 38th CBRN Battalion. “I think this training is amazing. The equipment that I have seen here is so up-to-date and clean, and the Soldiers of the 773rd CST have been extremely nice to all of us in the unit.” After several hours of classroom learning about how the 773rd CST conducts operations, the Bulgarian soldiers were able to participate and learn first hand

Baumholder ‘moves’ to provide better services by Ignacio “Iggy” Rubalcava U.S. Army Garrison Baumholder Public Affairs


here’s been a lot of juggling of offices and people lately on Smith Barracks that, in the end, will improve all personnel related services on Baumholder. The Civilian Personnel Advisory Center has moved from Bldg. 8749

on Ausweiler Strasse to Bldg. 8681 on Smith Barracks on Dragoon Circle. There, customer service hours are from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Their phone numbers are 485-1630/6735 or 6294, or 067836-1630/6735/6294. The Non Appropriated Fund personnel office, which is a part of CPAC, has also moved to Bldg. 8681. Their phone number is 485-6566.

Another new tenant of Bldg. 8681 is the Army Career and Alumni Program office. Their customer service hours are from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, except on federal holidays. More ACAP information is available by calling 485-6330 or 067836-6330. In a related move, Baumholder’s Out Processing Center, which issues PCS and TCS orders, has also found a new home in Bldg. 8670.

“This is actually the second phase of the whole human resources consolidation on Smith Barracks to provide better service to our Soldiers and family members,” said Chris Macri, director of human resources. Joining the Out Processing Center in Bldg. 8670 is Drivers Testing, the Reserve Recruiter, Transition Center and the remote Lending Locker site.

21st TSC unit recognized as Army’s ‘top engineers’ From the U.S. Army Europe Public Affairs Office


he 42nd Clearance Company, a 21st Theater Sustainment Command unit, was recently recognized as the Army’s top engineer unit During a May 16 ceremony, Lt. Gen. Thomas P. Bostick, U.S. Army chief of engineers and commanding general of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, presented the company with the Itschner Award for the unit’s accomplishments in Afghanistan. Prior to the ceremony, Bostick met with Maj. Gen. Aundre Piggee, 21st TSC commander, at the command’s Kaiserslautern headquarters on Panzer Kaserne. “It really recognizes not only the leaders but the entire team. The Soldiers in that unit, the family members in that unit and their higher headquarters all worked together as a team, so everybody is really proud of them,” Bostick said. Named in honor of Lt. Gen. Emerson C. Itschner, the award is presented annually to the active component’s most outstanding engineer company. Since 2010, the Bamberg-based unit served as U.S. Army Europe’s sole route clearance unit. Their mission is to find and destroy roadside bombs and other explosive hazards to allow friendly forces free access to roads to conduct their missions. The unit supported the 172nd Infantry Brigade and German troops during pre-deployment training. In early 2012, the unit deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, working in Afghanistan’s Ghazni Province alongside three brigades, two U.S. and one Polish. “The Sappers of the 42nd Clearance Company had the upper hand in that they had worked with NATO’s partners during their train up in Germany

and utilized this experience to help establish a close relationship with each of the two (Polish) battalions,” said 1st Lt. David Brink, the executive officer for the 42nd Clearance Company. By deployment’s end, the unit conducted more than 500 missions both in vehicles and on foot, clearing more than 30,000 kilometers of roads and finding and disabling more than 150 explosive hazards. The 42nd also mentored Afghan National Army forces on route-clearance, unit

logistics and maintenance programs. Throughout the deployment, the Soldiers distinguished themselves not only as a unit, but as individuals as well. Soldiers from the 42nd earned a MacArthur Leadership Award, six Bronze Star medals with V devices for valor and numerous other awards at the regional command level and below. The unit is now preparing to move to Fort Knox, Ky., as part of USAREUR’s transformation.

Personal information must be protected by Senior Airman Aaron-Forrest Wainwright 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


any of our enemies are constantly trying to steal information, which, in the wrong hands, could hinder the mission. Terrorists, identity thieves and hackers are focused on the regression of our freedom. The Air Force is determined to protect the information we are charged to safeguard. “Personal identifiable information is information about an individual that identifies, links, relates, is unique to, or describes him or her, like Social Security number, age, military rank, civilian grade, marital status, race, salary, home or office (and any other) information that is linked or linkable to

a specified individual,” said Paula Thomas, 86th Communication Squadron freedom of information act and privacy act officer. The release of PII can cause serious problems and even put Airmen, their families and the Air Force at risk. The information the U.S. government has about individuals must be balanced with their privacy invasion rights and must be protected against unwarranted invasions of their privacy, stemming from federal agencies’ collection, maintenance, use and disclosure of personal information about an individual. “The possibility of a breach of personal information, coupled with potential identity theft, are paramount adversities,” said Airman 1st Class Justin Grimm, 86th CS Freedom of Information

Act and Privacy Act specialist. “The loss of control, compromise, unauthorized disclosure, unauthorized acquisition, unauthorized access, or any similar term referring to situations where persons other than authorized personnel have access or potential access to PII.” Usually, a PII incident is a careless mistake. Nonetheless, the free world could be at stake. For this reason, operational security is important to ensure steps are being taken to protect our information. “The best way to prevent an incident is to think OPSEC on a daily basis,” Grimm said. “No one can make you give up your personal information” Protecting this information is everyone’s responsibility.

The Combat Dining In was a multinational event that included water fights, an obstacle course and a feast of hamburgers and steaks. Military members from the U.S., Canada and surrounding European countries entered themselves into this year’s engagement. The event led off with a social hour that evolved into a water gun and balloon fight putting countries and sister services against each other. Combatants were encouraged to scrounge up a variety of uniforms to wear. Combat kilts and battle dress uniform formal dresses layered with gun bandoliers were not an uncommon sight. Chief Master Sgt. James Morris, 86th Airlift Wing command chief, presided over the event and led the delegation of military members through rounds of toasting. Morris also ensured the obstacle course was never empty of competitors.

cal fitness test to an obstacle course and combat medical tasks. They had little or no rest in between events. “The Best Warrior event tests the abilities of the junior enlisted, NCOs and officers within the command,” said Sgt. 1st Class Daryle Rogers, the 21st TSC competition’s operations sergeant. “It puts them out of their comfort zone, and it tests them in all of their basic Soldiering skills in items that they don’t normally touch.” “The events have been very challenging, and the competition has a nice flow to it,” said competitor Sgt. Christopher Lamp, a healthcare specialist with the 21st TSC’s 7th Civil Support Command. “You don’t really know what you’re going to do until you get there.” For most Soldiers, the opportunity to meet a new group of Soldiers and build lasting relationships is just as important as the chance to win the competition. “One of the first things you do when you get here is you size people up, but by the end of that first day you’re

already friends,” Lamp said. “Even though you’re competing against each other, you want to know how each other did and sometimes you want to help each other out.” Back at U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern, on a remote part of Rhine Ordnance Barracks, the 10th AAMDC Soldiers found that staying focused is just as important as strength and stamina. “This competition was designed to test the Soldiers true mettle,” said U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class Jesus Arellano, who organized the event while serving as a launcher platoon sergeant with Charlie Battery, 5th Battalion, 7th Air Defense Artillery Regiment, 10th AAMDC. “It really gets you to push your limits, and shows where you stand,” said U.S. Army Spc. Sean Salter, a fueler with Service Company, 5-7 ADA. Competitors moved quickly to their next task with little recovery time, a factor that considerably reduced the final number of competitors.

Handlers care for Airmen of a different breed by Senior Airman Caitlin O’Neil-McKeown 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs “Get ‘em! Halt! Heel!” These are examples of commands given by Staff Sgt. Michael Judy, 86th Security Forces military working dog handler, to his 2-year-old military working dog, Risky. The start of these puppies’ new lives is the day they are selected to become a military working dog. “The MWDs are procured through the 341st Training Squadron located at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas,” said Tech. Sgt. Nicholas Ramsey, 86th Security Forces Squadron MWD training manager. “The length of the training depends on the dog, roughly 90 days, to include narcotic and explosive detection and another 90 days of patrols. After they have achieved certifications they are then transferred throughout the four branches of the military.” Ramstein SFS maintains the second largest kennel outside the U.S. With 22 dogs and handlers, one ken-

working dogs and their handlers train in a wide variety of scenarios and environments. “Before each shift we try to train with the dog,” Judy said. “Even if it’s just the basic centerline drills or playing catch, the dogs are having fun. At the same time it’s teaching obedience and helping to build that relationship with the dog.” Ramsey said the training establishes a close bond between working dogs and their handlers, allowing them to work efficiently together to protect the base and its residents. That bond is what enables the handler to trust his canine partner to detect those threats. What happens when a handler is selected for a deployment? “A dog and handler will deploy together,” Ramsey said. “Once a dog and his handler get tapped for a deployment, they will go to a regional training center.” During the preparation phase, dogs are put through rigorous training to ensure they can perform a variety of tasks, including implementing take downs, detect-

ing explosives and locating drugs in hostile environments. The diverse training also prepares the working dog team for possible missions and deployments to unpredictable and potentially dangerous locations. “During a deployment, you build a great bond with your dog,” Ramsey said. “You care for them, you live with them and, if you go to work with the Army and Marines outside the fence, you are depending on your dog to detect any explosives that can harm the guys behind you. So that bond is important.” Handlers don’t just work with professional K-9s daily, they find satisfaction in watching these young dogs grow into military working dogs. “I look forward to coming to work every day,” Judy said. “Seeing all the goals you set for the dog as much as you can and see how far they are willing to go, after you build that rapport with them, you praise them and they work hard. It’s better than any award I will ever receive.”

Furloughs affect USAFE-AFAFRICA employees by Capt. Reba Good U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa Public Affairs More than 1,760 U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa employees are among the Department of Defense civilians required to take 11 furlough days beginning July 8. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced the recent furlough decision during a town hall meeting May 14 in Alexandria, Va. He said employees will have to take off one day a week from July until the end of September. Lt. Gen. Noel T. Jones, USAFE-AFAFRICA commander, said the impact will be felt across the command. “This decision affects our civilian Airmen at all

levels, and we are going to do everything we can to help them through this difficult time,” he said. Secretary of the Air Force Michael Donley and Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Welsh III said they had hoped to avoid furloughs entirely, but they noted unprecedented times have demanded tough decisions. “We recognize the significant impact this action will have on our civilian Airmen, their families and our mission,” Donley and Welsh said in a U.S. Air Force press release. “But the unprecedented budget choices we’ve faced during this extraordinary year have forced painful decisions to avoid further degradation in our missions.” Furloughing civilians in USAFE-AFAFRICA will save the DOD an estimated $5.38 million in fiscal 2013.

Hagel said the furloughs will affect every military department and almost every agency, with limited exceptions. Approximately 10 percent of USAFEAFAFRICA’s civilian workforce — employees in child and youth care, health and safety, and intelligence operations positions — will be exempt from the furlough. USAFE-AFAFRICA employees identified to be furloughed will receive written notification between May 28 and June 5. Furloughed employees should contact their local civilian personnel section and Airman & Family Readiness Center for information on local employee assistance programs, community resources and counseling services.

Lifelong love of books leads to prestigious award

Story and photo by Dijon Rolle U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern Public Affairs


hen asked about her favorite book, Tiffany Hughey, a U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern library technician, was surpris-

ingly stumped. That’s one of the most difficult questions anyone had ever asked her, she said. “There are just too many,” Hughey said. “But if I had to chose, it would be ‘The Color Purple,’ by Alice Walker, and ‘10-10-10,’ by Suzy Welch, and finance books from Suze Orman. Those are my favorite books.” The Federal Library and Information Network, or FEDLINK, recently named Hughey 2012 Federal Library Technician of the Year. The organization of federal agencies works closely with the Library of Congress. While the award is a first for the KMC, Hughey’s dedication and love of libraries goes back to her upbringing. Her interest in books began at a very early age and remained with her, Hughey said. “We didn’t have a lot growing up, and my mom always instilled in us education, reading and going to the library because it’s free,” said Hughey, who’s served as a garrison library technician for the past three years. “It’s just been so important to us and to my family. My mom always read. She was an avid reader and would read anywhere from four to five books a week. So it was just instilled in us.” The Cleveland, Ohio, native admitted she was shocked when she found out that she had won. She hopes the award will shine the spotlight on others across the community. “It’s kind of two-fold. I’m excited and I’m appreciative of the award. For me, it puts a positive light on libraries. It puts us out there more than what people would kind of see us as and it just makes the garrison look good. I’m happy about it,” she said.

She also highlighted Hughey’s improvements to programming, services and her role in training staff. “The awards highlight the important work being accomplished on a daily basis by federal employees,” Friend-Begin said. “Locally, it highlights

the community members and the impact Army libraries have in the community — professionally, recreationally and educationally.

Memorial cleanup for 65th anniversary of Berlin Airlift Photos by Airman 1st Class Jordan Castelan

Members from the KMC were among those who volunteered their time to freshen and restore aircraft and the surrounding memorial at the Berlin Airlift Memorial May 18 near Frankfurt International Airport. The Berlin Airlift was a joint nation effort, consisting of the U.S. Air Force, British Royal Air Force, Royal Australian Air Force, Royal Canadian Air Force, Royal New Zealand Air Force and South African Air Force, which flew more than 200,000 flights in a single year and provided up to 4,700 tons of goods daily. Thirty-one Americans lost their lives in an effort to supply Germany’s biggest city. In their honor and to commemorate their substantial effort, memorials stand in Berlin and near Frankfurt. Each prong on the memorial represents one of the three air corridors used during Operation Vittles and the names of the U.S. and British Airmen killed in the process are inscribed on each memorial base. This year marks the 65th anniversary of the airlift.

USAFE-AFAFRICA infrastructure under pressure From staff reports U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa Public Affairs U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa is seeing the ripple effects from sequestration. Budget cuts for this fiscal year to facilities sustainment and restoration are expected to cause readiness issues now and into the future. Lt. Gen. Tom Jones, USAFE-AFAFRICA interim commander, said these cuts will affect USAFE-AFAFRICA installations’ ability to serve as conduits for mobility, communications, and logistics. “USAFE-AFAFRICA brings critical capabilities to accomplish missions we have regularly performed in the past and are expected to perform in the future,” Jones said. “Airpower is vital to the success of U.S. European Command, U.S.

“We need every Airman to identify ways to reduce infrastructure spending. Innovative, frugal thinking in this area is the key to success.” — Lt. Gen. Tom Jones, USAFE-AFAFRICA interim commander

Africa Command, and other combatant commands in world-wide operations.” Airmen and aircraft assigned to USAFEAFAFRICA are responsible for 105 countries on two continents covering territory spanning 19.7 million square miles. The forces here are positioned in key locations designed to enable personnel to rapidly reposition into hotspots in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and other contingencies across the globe. “The current threat environment requires the ability and flexibility to provide multilateral response options to complex, cross-national security threats,” Jones said. While the threat environment includes fluid and ever-changing factors, USAFE-AFAFRICA infrastructure demands require long-term programming and planning. “We’ve had to defer four runway repair projects,” said Col. Mark Hering, USAFE-AFAFRICA deputy director of operations. “While we chose those that had the least impact to operations, we understand that any deferment can increase the risk to aircraft and even some risk to aircrews.” Air Force leaders have focused significant attention on sequestration’s impact on current flight operations, but little mention has been made of the impact shrinking operations and maintenance appropriations are having on future costs.

USAFE-AFAFRICA civil engineers work to prevent mission stoppages, however, mission degradation will occur. “It is critical that we carefully manage the risk associated with infrastructure decisions” Jones said. “We are becoming increasingly more selective in where our limited sustainment dollars go.” It’s important to understand the timeline of construction and its funding. There is often a delay between paying for and executing construction projects. “We’re executing new projects on an emergency basis only, even as we complete construction of lower-priority projects that were funded in prior fiscal years,” said Brig. Gen. Warren Berry, USAFE-AFAFRICA director of logistics, installations and mission support. “There can be a significant time lapse between when a construction project is approved and funded, and when actual work begins. After groundbreaking, it can take months or even years for projects to be completed.” The approach to spending cuts must be deliberate even with an “emergencies only” mindset. “We need every Airman to identify ways to reduce infrastructure spending,” Jones said. “Innovative, frugal thinking in this area is the key to success.”

Engineers build sets for high school production by 2nd Lt. Abraham Richardson 15th Engineer Battalion, 21st Theater Sustainment Command VILSECK, Germany — Soldiers with the 21st Theater Sustainment Command’s 15th Engineer Battalion, 18th Engineer Brigade, put their carpentry skills to use in April constructing stage props for Vilseck High School’s production of “The Little Mermaid.” “There is nothing better than putting the knowledge and skills of your military occupation specialty to use for a good cause,” said Warrant Officer Carlene S. Davis, officer in charge of the project and a member of the 902nd Vertical Construction Company of the 15th Engineer Bn. “It started with a hunt for volunteer opportunities for Soldiers to stay proficient in MOS fields. What we got was a rewarding and fun way to give back to our community.” The high school performed a theatrical version of “The Little Mermaid” on the first and second weekends of May. Sgt. Allen Clapper, Spc. Brandon Barrett, Spc. Deandre Gavin and Pvt. Diallo Young used their creativity and carpentry skills to create stage scenes. King Triton’s throne, a little love boat, a ship, sea floor rocks, sea floor waves, Ariel’s grotto (hideout), Ursula’s cauldron and coral reefs were among the creations. “The project was estimated to cost well over

was both an exciting and rewarding way to get our Soldiers engaged in their MOS related skills and in the community.”

ILAW technicians help Airmen with legal processes Story and photo by Airman 1st Class Dymekre Allen 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

International law judge advocate legal technicians look to improve deficiencies in the legal support process by speaking to German authorities, informing service members and providing adequate assistance in solving legal issues for Airmen and local nationals. Legal technicians act as a go-between for the German law and U.S. personnel. They maintain responsibilities that can be broken down into three primary categories: criminal, civil and traffic. Claudia Weigel and Heide Schmitt, ILAW JA legal technicians, are responsible for the civil and traffic ticket programs. They serve German traffic tickets, subpoenas for court, writ of payment orders, writ of executions, petitions for paternity and divorce, and other civil matters. “In an ideal world, every contacted person responds after the first email notification within the given deadline,” said Matthias Voelker, 86th Airlift Wing German legal adviser. “We just want to help people before it becomes a problem.” The head of the criminal process and waiver of criminal jurisdiction, Petra Bryant, paralegal specialist, handles primarily foreign proceedings. She ensures waivers of criminal jurisdiction concerning service members in the KMC, including serving all the indictments, penal orders, driving while intoxicated tickets, as well as other German criminal processes. These legal technicians work alongside Voelker, a trained German attorney who provides legal assisLEGACY, from Page 2 better. He got picked to deploy and was very excited about it (insert ominous music here). Jerry fell asleep on post while deployed and received an Article 15 for his actions. Wait a second, this isn’t supposed to happen; he was on the road to recovery. I wasn’t prepared for this. What do I do now? When Jerry returned from his deployment, I did the same thing I did before. I sat him down and gave him feedback. We set another road map to recovery, and I told him this wasn’t going to be easy. One year later, Jerry was selected for promotion to staff sergeant. A year after that, he replaced me in a resume-hire job when I was selected for assignment to Aviano Air Base, Italy. Today, he is a first sergeant in the Air Force, responsible for taking care of our greatest asset — our Airmen. As you can see, my son is a work in progress and challenges me every day. However, Jerry overcame some early career obstacles and is now part of an extremely talented group of men and women. Are you willing to work with your troubled Airmen? Will you set those tough standards? Will you push them to excel? If so, they will surprise you. What will be your legacy?

International law judge advocate Heide Schmitt explains legal documentation to 86th Force Support Squadron member Daniel Aponte April 7 on Ramstein.

tance in accordance with German law. As a team, they serve more than 4,000 traffic tickets and several hundred other forms of documentation each year. “By checking emails regularly and paying attention to due dates, Airmen can help legal improve their work efficiency thus making for a faster pro-

cess in resolving legal issues,” Bryant said. “We would like to drastically decrease the numbers of tickets by the end of the fiscal year.” For more information on legal professionals, visit the Ramstein Law Center or call 314-4806660/5911.

Airmen submit innovative ideas by the thousands by Senior Airman Jamie Jaggers Secretary of the Air Force Public Affairs WASHINGTON — More than 8,000 money-saving ideas have cascaded into the Pentagon from across the Air Force this month. Air Force Vice Chief of Staff Gen. Larry Spencer launched the Airmen Powered by Innovation Challenge May 1, challenging uniformed and civilian Airmen to find places to save money across the service, no matter how big or small. “If there are things we can do better, if there are things we can stop doing, or if there are ideas (Airmen) have on how we can better manage our money... we want to hear it,” Spencer said. When Airmen click “submit,” on one of two websites, their ideas fall directly into the hands of Spencer’s team of action officers here, who dedicate their time to receiving ideas and tasking them out for consideration. “Chaotic, at best, is what it’s like working in here, because all these ideas are flowing through consider-

ably. It takes me personally, on average, about 10-15 minutes to process each idea,” Master Sgt. Joel Meyer said. Meyer, a security forces Airman by trade, said this is a unique opportunity for today’s Airmen. “It’s an opportunity for Airmen in the field to provide an idea straight to the top, and not have that filter of that staff sergeant on their flight, or master sergeant, or (operations) officer,” Meyer said. “They don’t have to go through any of that ... they can get (their idea) right to General Spencer.” Airmen who may be holding back due to reservations about confidentiality should think again. “The people who are responsible for filtering that (submission) and looking into it deeper — they have no idea who it is. So don’t be apprehensive. Submit it,” Meyer said. Uniformed and civilian Airmen can submit their ideas on how to squeeze the most out of every Air Force dollar via the Air Force portal, or EveryDollar.DoDLive.Mil; the opportunity is live until June 1.

Mental health partners with Red Nose Institute to boost morale for deployed troops by Carmen Schott Ramstein Family Advocacy Psychiatric illness is no laughing matter, but humor and lightheartedness can help us all get through the stresses of military life and deployment. The Red Nose Institute is a nonprofit corporation founded by a retired Air Force veteran and psychiatric nurse. The goal of the Red Nose Institute is to put a smile on the faces of troops overseas. Designed by a clown and with the help of friends from around the world, this program was launched in July 2007. The institute’s mission is to help encourage individuals who care about our military to donate red foam noses. The noses are mailed to U.S. service members deployed overseas. A letter is enclosed in

each package telling military members how extremely proud of them we are and how thankful we are for their service. Servicemen and women are encouraged to share the noses with others who might need to smile or share them with nearby children. The underlying goal is to relieve stress and promote resiliency. The Ramstein Mental Health clinic has joined forces with the Red Nose Institute in May to send the red foam noses to the deployed 86th MDOS personnel who are serving overseas at this time. If you would like to send noses to your coworkers and deployed service members, you can contact the Red Nose Institute online at They will send red noses for free to deployed service members in your squadron or unit.

Encourage overseas visitors to include travel insurance on checklist by Bonnie DeJesus Landstuhl Regional Medical Center Public Affairs


o one wants to think there could be a medical emergency when they’re on vacation or traveling to visit friends or relatives. But the reality is, some people on vacation end up in European hospitals or require outpatient care on the local economy. Reasons for these unplanned mishaps include car accidents, strokes or heart attacks, falls resulting in broken bones or head injuries, flu or the sudden realization their prescription medication has run out. In some cases, patients have to be in ICU for weeks or months. In other instances such as car or motorcycle accidents, more than one member of a visiting family may

require medical attention or hospitalization. And one of the worst-case scenarios is a patient not being able to return home on a commercial aircraft and requiring a medical flight back to the U.S. A medical flight alone can cost approximately $13,000 or more depending on the need for medical equipment and accompanying medical personnel. All of these examples have the potential to create extreme financial hardship for those involved if medical insurance is not available. For these, reasons, people living in Europe who are expecting visitors should advise them to ensure they obtain health care insurance coverage before their visit. Folks who are not in possession of a military/retiree/ DOD civilian Identification

Card are not eligible for care at a Military Treatment Facility except for emergencies to save sight, life or limb. Even those who have an ID card may be sent off a military post for care if an appointment isn’t available. Or, if a medical need arises when a military treatment facility is not nearby, the patient would need to seek care at a facility on the economy wherever they are. Medicare does not pay for healthcare outside the U.S. Some private health insurances also do not pay for healthcare outside the U.S. Some will not pay directly to a hospital. This results in patients having to pay their bills up front and file with the health insurance company for reimbursement. Those interested in obtain-

ing travel insurance should carefully research what is covered and if there is a limit on the coverage. Does the travel insurance include a medical flight back home? Will the travel insurance pay hospitals directly or do they require the patient to pay up front and then file for reimbursement? If a person buys travel

insurance for $10,000 worth of coverage, that coverage may not be very useful if the buyer cannot afford to pay $10,000 up front to the hospital if the bill should amount to that. Knowing your visitors can be treated if a medical need arises ensures a worry free stay for both hosts and guests.

Baumholder honors fallen Soldiers Story and photo illustration by Ignacio “Iggy” Rubalcava U.S. Army Garrison Baumholder Public Affairs


aumholder honored its fallen Soldiers May 17 during their annual Fallen Soldier Memorial Run. More than 200 runners, walkers, strollers and dog walkers showed up for the annual run. The names of Baumholder’s fallen were posted along the run. Lt. Col. Mike Sullivan, U.S. Army Garrison Baumholder commander, told the runners before the race to remember these fallen Soldiers and to never forget why they paid the ultimate price. First place in the men’s category went to Magnencio Sembrano from the 240th Quartermaster Company who burned up the 5 kilometer course in 15:53 minutes. Second place was claimed by Michael Pikul from the 557th Medical Company who finished in 16:29 minutes. Curtis Willson from the 504th Signal Company turned in a time of 16:46 for third place. Heather Ricks from the 64th Medical Veterinary Detachment was the fastest woman of the day with a time of 20:38 minutes. Jessica Pekar finished second with a time of 22:22 minutes and Elizabeth Glass from the 421st Multifunctional Medical Battalion was third with a 25:50 finish. Henry Treston, 8, had the fastest feet for the youth with a time of 42:58 minutes. Ava Refile is only five years old but she turned in a time of 47:02 minutes to finish second for the youth. Third place for the youth went to Rakeem Refile, 8,

with a time of 51:53 minutes. “The atmosphere was joyous and there were no accidents or injuries to report,” said Anthony “G Man” Ramsey, sports specialist from the Hall of Champions. “We extend a special thanks to Lt. Col. Mike

Sullivan, and Sgt. Maj. Ronald Caswell for their steadfast support and to the Health Clinic and Red Cross for their health promotion support,” said Ramsey. Next community run will be the Army Birthday Run on June 13.

Deadlift: Proper technique can reduce injury Story and photo by Cesar Alvarez Ramstein Health and Wellness Center health and fitness specialist


here is one exercise that can, if repeatedly performed poorly, lead to injuries of “lumbago,” or lower back injuries — it’s the deadlift. The deadlift is a weight training exercise where a loaded barbell is lifted off the ground from a stabilized, bent over position. It is considered among strength and conditioning professionals as one of the big three exercises to be included in an overall strength training program. Anyone unfamiliar with the intricacies of the deadlift could easily assume it is simple to execute, with basically nothing more than bending down, grasping a barbell and standing up. A movement pattern simple in appearance should not be judged entirely based on perception. Two of the most common mistakes when performing this exercise are rounding the back during the initial pull and hyperextending the

Fun run/walk-a-thon

The Sembach National Junior Honor Society Fun Run/Walk-A-Thon will be held from 3 to 6 p.m. June 1 at the Vogelweh track, next to the commissary. The fun run will be held to earn money for the Wounded Warrior Project and the NJHS. For more information about the Wounded Warrior Project, visit www.woundedwarriorproject. org.

Families need to arrive 30 minutes prior to the scheduled appointment to complete paperwork and the necessary pre-examination testing. If a child wears glasses, please bring them to the appointment and have your children wear comfortable clothing, such as a T-shirt and a pair of shorts.

back or jerking the weight up at the end of the exercise. Typically, the term deadlift is associated with both conventional and nonconventional styles. An individual’s lifting style should be based on their body and not on someone’s physical characteristics. These proper techniques will prevent many of the injuries associated with this lift: • Keep feet flat and shoulder width apart • Grasp the barbell with an alternated grip (one with one palm up and one down) or both facing down slightly wider than shoulder width apart • Arms are outside the knees with elbows extended • Stand up keeping the barbell close to the shins • Keep chest held up and out squeezing shoulder blades together. If you would like more information about proper lifting techniques or beginning a basic weightlifting program, email the HAWC at or call them at 480-HAWC (4292).

Classes take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. June 17 to 21 at the Landstuhl track field and June 24 to 28 at the Sembach track field.
