US, French commemorate fallen heroes Story and photos by Airman 1st Class Tryphena Mayhugh 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Memorial Day is a special day set aside each year to honor and remember the sacrifices of more than one million Airmen, Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen who gave the ultimate sacrifice for freedom. Both American and French citizens attended the ceremony May 24 at Saint-Mihiel American Cemetery in Thiaucourt, France, to honor and pay their respects to American military members from World War I who were laid to rest in the cemetery. Lt. Gen. Tom Jones, U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa vice commander, French military veterans attend a Memorial Day ceremony at St. Mihiel American Cemetery May 24 in Thiaucourt, France. The ceremony was one of many held throughout Europe during Memorial Day weekend to honor the sacrifices of fallen service members.

86th CES housing office completes OHA audit

Summer safety: reduce risks during trips ensuring rest and preparation for contingencies. Don't consume alcohol while driving or participating in recreational activities and use appropriate, protective gear.

Service members and their families are the most important assets and looking out for their interests is very important during this period. The financial management team is researching options to mitigate negative impacts on service members and their families and to ensure prevention of further overpayments or underpayments. In the meantime and as a reminder, service members and their families who are affected are currently being notified and given guidance on how to respond. Also, if members have questions or concerns about allowances or payments being made, be patient with the housing office and finance personnel as they work diligently to address the issue.

Tip of the Week

reported during an audit status update in March of this year. The auditing agency only reviewed Air Force military leases and not civilians or contracts from other services. The bulk of the contract irregularities apply to enlisted Airmen and their families who arrived in the KMC and have a lease signed prior to June 2012. During this period in 2012, the KMC housing office reviewed its OHA processes and determined a change was needed to ensure no double payments or further irregularities were caused. The recent audit from this year confirmed current processes have been established and are effective at preventing these issues from moving forward.

NEWS

The 86th Civil Engineer Squadron housing office, in conjunction with the Air Force Audit Agency, recently completed an Overseas Housing Allowance audit consisting of approximately 5,000 contracts May 18 on Ramstein. The audit’s purpose was to review lease contracts to determine if controls were in place to prevent rent escalation and to determine if OHA was administered correctly. The audit concluded that controls to prevent rent escalation were effective, but did highlight about 5,000 lease contracts that may have OHA irregularities.

The audit determined 428 contracts needed corrections or required additional attention. Of the 428 found to have irregularities, 142 have been notified and provided guidance from the housing and finance offices. The remaining members whose contracts were impacted will be notified by Monday. The 86th Comptroller Squadron is the finance office working the implementation of the housing document changes as a result of the audit, and has currently suspended all debt collection actions for those affected until further notice. This audit was centrally directed and conducted by the Air Force Audit Agency. Discrepancies were first

Leadership CRM – 'What do you think?'

COMMENTARY

by Lt. Col. Daniel Mangan 76th Airlift Squadron commander Crew Resource Management is a vital tool used in aviation to ensure people’s skills and inputs are optimized to maximize safe, effective operations. This tool, or training procedure, is the cornerstone of safe operations in crew aircraft. In the 76th Airlift Squadron, we rely on effective resource management to ensure our crews remain a focused, functioning team. In the 76th AS we have pilots, engineers, communications system operators and flight attendants all operating on the same aircraft at the same time. Throw in the flying crew chiefs, Phoenix Raven security teams, and the flight doctors and an aircraft can carry up to seven different career fields operating simultaneously.

CRM isn’t just a handy tool for us; it is an absolute necessity. However, our squadron’s airborne mission of enabling U.S. diplomacy for key military and national leaders is not the only place the concepts of resource management are applied. CRM is employed across many career fields in the U.S. Air Force. Beyond career competencies, there is a broader concept to which CRM is essential, and that concept is leadership. Leaders at every level, from front-line supervisors and up, should apply the same concepts of resource management when making decisions. In the 76th AS, I call on our leaders to draw on the knowledge and expertise of their subordinates when making decisions, both inside the aircraft and out. When I’m posed with a com-

plicated situation I usually start by asking, “what do you think?” Beginning this way applies the concept of resource management to leadership by empowering the experts closest to the situation to speak up, often exposing an angle of a problem I hadn’t considered. In addition to some of the tragic aviation mishaps we have learned about in the flying world, think of the many engineering and maritime disasters that have resulted from lacking leadership crew resource management. The groupthink that has brought down bridges and sunk ships appeared to be the result of a rickety leadership framework, built on a foundation of intellectual nepotism that defined genius as “thinking like me.” Unfortunately, in many situations, the only recipient of the question “what do you think?” was a mirror. Leaders can be reluctant at

times to delegate away their decision-making authority to a committee or to a vote. I often have a good idea of how I think a problem should be solved before I ask for advice, but I still ask. Sometimes I’m persuaded to see things differently, and we get to a better solution. However, even if I’m not persuaded, at least I’ll know where the people who might disagree with a decision are coming from. That builds understanding, trust and teamwork. It is CRM applied on a broader scale. We use resource management inside and outside the aircraft at the 76th AS because it is a necessity for safety and a foundation for team building, trust and good decision making. I believe the concepts of crew resource management can, and should be, applied broadly to leadership. What do you think?

spoke during the ceremony, reflecting upon the many lives that were lost during the battle. “On this Memorial Day, as we look at all of the headstones before us, it reminds me of what Pericles once said,” Jones said. “Not only are they commemorated by columns and inscriptions, but there dwells also an unwritten memorial of them, written not on stone, but in the hearts of men.” The ceremony also included the U.S. Air Forces in Europe band, the 86th Airlift Wing Honor Guard, an Honor Platoon and a flyover by a C-130J Super Hercules to render honors to those buried in the cemetery. “Today’s ceremony was humbling for my family and I, as a third generation Airman,” said Major Mike Andrews, USAFE-AFAFRICA Public Affairs deputy director. “To see our French friends honor and recognize the sacrifice of Americans almost one hundred years ago is truly an honor.”

KMC Scholarship Committee awards $120,000

Graduating high school students stand for photos after receiving their scholarships for higher education May 17 on Ramstein.

Story and photo by Staff Sgt. Armando A. Schwier-Morales 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Family members of the KMC received a combined total of more than $120,000 for their future education May 17 on Ramstein. Approximately 85 spouses and

high school seniors filled up the Hercules Theater to receive various scholarships provided by the KMC Scholarship Committee. Gen. Frank Gorenc, U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa commander, served as guest speaker and participated in presenting the grants. “I would like to thank all these wonderfully talented volunteers for the work they do,” Gorenc said. “This

is an enormous undertaking not only to accumulate the funds, but to also accommodate a process to recognize deserving spouses and students.” The committee gave a jump-start to students going to different colleges throughout the continental U.S. One of the students, Brendan Towlson, son of Capt. Craig Towlson, 435th Air Ground Operations Wing chief of wing plans and programs, expressed

his gratefulness to have a helping hand in his future education. “I feel like I have more support under me to pay for some of the expenses of college,” Towlson said. “Any contribution helps offset the expenses, and I am grateful.” Scholarships are awarded to graduating high school students and spouses residing in the KMC and are based on the academic merits of the students.

KMC service members share fun, fellowship with JCDI Story and photo by Sgt. 1st Class Alexander A. Burnett 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs

Army Sgt. Robert R. Kennedy, a parachute rigger with the 21st Theater Sustainment Command’s 5th Quartermaster Detachment, 39th Transportation Battalion, 16th Sustainment Brigade, climbs the wall of an obstacle course during the Joint Combat Dining-In.

They are tired, wet and dirty. Their uniforms are tattered and torn, far from their original splendor when worn by these Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines. Before running the gauntlet again, they look up and see their objective: the grog. Service members from the U.S. Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps along with German soldiers from the Bundeswehr enjoyed water fights, food and camaraderie during a Joint Combat Dining-In May 15 at Pulaski Park on Vogelweh. The dining-in was chaired by senior noncommissioned officers from both the Army and Air Force. Command Sgt. Maj. Jesse C. Harris, Jr., the 21st Theater Sustainment Command’s 39th Transportation Battalion, 16th Sustainment Brigade

command sergeant major, was the president for the evening and stressed the importance of such events. “This is a great event and I think that we need to host them more often, at least twice a year,” Harris said. “A combat dining-in brings our brothers and sisters in arms together to promote camaraderie and teamwork within the fighting forces.” The evening’s festivities allowed all members of the uniformed services to wear outdated versions of their service’s uniform, such as the battle dress uniform, or theater specific uniforms including the Operation Enduring Freedom camouflage pattern. Their uniforms could be cut up or worn in whatever way to make them more “combat effective.” As attendees filtered into the park, they had the opportunity to enjoy their food or take a run along the obstacle course. As the formal portion of the event began, the U.S and German national anthems were sung, the colors were posted

and there were toasts honoring the warriors killed in action or who had become prisoners of war. “It’s important to maintain the formal portion of a diningin and remember those Soldiers that made the ultimate sacrifice,” said Army Sgt. Michael A. Currin, a defense courier for the Defense Courier Station on Ramstein. “Even though the evening is about fun, this tradition is important.” With the toasts made, grog poured and anthems sung, the battle for water supremacy began. A water gun and water balloon free-for-all broke out in the park with service members from all branches forming alliances to take control of the grounds. As the evening came to a close, Harris reflected on the importance and greater meaning of such an event. “During this time in our nation, no service fights alone,” Harris said. “We all fight together and that is why we need to come together and have fun like this.”

In order to enhance operational and mission capacity in support of combatant commanders, and to maintain readiness, the Air Force is setting a minimum active-duty force level of 317,000 as established in the fiscal 2016 President’s Budget submission. The Air Force is undergoing a concerted effort to stabilize and grow the force by fiscal 2017, including addressing key gaps in the nuclear, cyber, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, and support career fields. The Air Force is using the most direct way to grow the force by increasing the accessions of enlisted Airmen entering basic military training and the numbers of officers being

commissioned. To complement those efforts, the Air Force is also offering opportunities to retain key experience and increase operational manning levels through targeted voluntary High Year of Tenure extensions, Voluntary Limited Period of Active Duty Program affording opportunities to members of the Air

Reserve Component to serve an active-duty tour, and Direct Duty Prior Service Enlistment Program opening doors for prior-service enlisted members to return to active duty. The focus of these programs is to increase the number of exper-ienced Airmen in undermanned specialties such as nuclear, cyber, intelligence,

21st TSC remembers fallen heroes Story and photo by Brandon Beach 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs Soldiers from the 21st Theater Sustainment Command paid tribute to America’s fallen heroes during multiple Memorial Day events May 21 throughout the KMC. Maj. Gen. John R. O’Connor, 21st TSC commanding general, and Command Sgt. Maj. Rodney J. Rhoades, 21st TSC senior enlisted adviser, laid a wreath of red and white flowers in front of a memorial site dedicated to 34 fallen 21st TSC Soldiers during an afternoon Memorial Day ceremony on Panzer Kaserne. At the start of the ceremony, the American flag flying over Panzer Parade Field was raised from halfstaff to full-staff precisely at the noon, a military custom which signifies the uplifting of memory by those paying tribute to more than one million men

Maj. Gen. John R. O’Connor and Command Sgt. Maj. Rodney J. Rhoades, the commanding general and senior enlisted adviser of the 21st Theater Sustainment Command, render a salute honoring Soldiers of the 21st TSC who have given their lives in the service of their nation during a Memorial Day wreath laying ceremony May 21 on Panzer Kaserne.

and women who gave their lives in service to this country. “On Memorial Day, we pause to

honor the brave men and women who gave their lives in defense of something greater than self,” O’Connor

said. “Words cannot fully discharge our solemn obligation to them, so we gather to pay tribute and offer our humble blessings.” Standing quietly before the memorial site, O’Connor and Rhoades rendered a salute while a narrator read the names of the 34 fallen Team 21 heroes who lost their lives while defending the nation. A three-round cannon salute followed by the playing of taps concluded the ceremony. Earlier in the day, hundreds of Soldiers from various 21st TSC subordinate brigades gathered on Rhine Ordnance Barracks for a sunrise run inspired by Memorial Day. “American Soldiers have a sacred bond with brothers and sisters in arms who served before them, who built a great institution with courage, their sacrifice, their devotion and something greater than themselves,” Rhoades said. “They defended the values we live by with all they have.”

21st TSC CSM inducted as honorary Sgt. Morales Club member Story and photo by Staff Sgt. Warren W. Wright Jr. 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs The senior enlisted leader of the 21st Theater Sustainment Command was welcomed into the Rheinland-Pfalz Sergeant Morales Club as an honorary member during a lively induction ceremony May 19 at the Wagon Wheel Theater on Smith Barracks in Baumholder. Command Sgt. Maj. Rodney J. Rhoades was inaugurated into the organization during a ceremony that also welcomed three other noncommissioned officers as new members. Maj. Gen. John R. O’Connor, the commanding general of the 21st TSC, presided over the ceremony, delivering remarks and inducting his commanding sergeant major and other new members. The Sergeant Morales Club is an organization that promotes the highest ideals of integrity, professionalism and leadership for the enlisted force serving in Europe. Membership into the organization is selective and achieved through a rigorous,

competitive process. “The Sergeant Morales Club, that stood up 42 years ago to promote leadership and honor among NCOs, today has strengthened their numbers with the induction of our newest members so that our great NCOs are better postured to lead the way in Army enlisted leadership, better serving the European community,” O’Connor said. O’Connor went on to name seven priorities he expects the new members to think about in their new role. He charged the new members to take care of their Soldiers and continue to build the Army profession and its characteristics of trust, military expertise, esprit de corps, honorable service, stewardship and teamwork, to name a few. Following the remarks, O’Connor presented the three new members with their coveted Sergeant Morales Club medallions and certificates of membership. The members awarded were Staff Sgt. Ray Davon Holmes-Brown of the 500th Engineer Company, 15th Engineer Battalion, 18th Military Police Brigade; Sgt. 1st Class Matthew

Foldenauer of the 181st Signal Company, Enterprise Satellite Communications Gateway; and Sgt. 1st Class Keith L. Michaud of the 18th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, 16th Sustainment Brigade. “It feels great,” HolmesBrown said. “It was a long journey for me to be able to accomplish this, but when all is said and done, I’m feeling great right now. “Now that I’ve been inducted I’m going to continue the same things that I’ve been doing and hope that my Soldiers are inspired to become outstanding noncommissioned officers,” HolmesBrown continued. Once the new members were inducted, Rhoades was presented with his honorary certificate of membership into the organization. Organization leaders, in turn, presented O’Connor with his own honorary certificate of membership, making the commanding general the first officer inducted into the Rheinland-Pfalz chapter. Following the ceremony, the new inductees, including O’Connor and Rhoades, cut a

cake with the traditional NCO sword. Afterward, attendees congratulated the NCOs on their induction. “I’m honored to be part of this terrific event and proud to be a member of the Sergeant Morales Club,” Rhoades said. “I’m very grateful to General O’Connor and Sergeant Major Davenport for their role in this, but I’m equally grateful to the team of outstanding, dedicated professionals that make this such a vibrant,

engaged organization day in and day out. “This organization embodies all that is best in the NCO corps,” Rhoades continued. “The SMC inspires professional excellence, leadership and mentorship every day. Morales Club professionals engage communities, families and students as well as Soldiers. Our Army is better because of them; our communities are better because of them. I’m proud to stand in their ranks.”

The common misconception about dental decay by Senior Airman Rebecca Carpenter 86th Dental Squadron

W

hen the dental preventive team asks patients what they think causes cavities, most answer “sugar,� but this is not exactly accurate. Enamel, the outside structure of a tooth, is the strongest substance in the human body. So, what is the enemy destroying our pearly whites? The answer is acid. The mouth hosts a variety of microorganisms, many of which are indeed beneficial. Unfortunately, we possess a certain acid-producing bacteria in our mouths that is actually contagious. This bacterium is most commonly passed down from parent to child. Certain germs found in the mouth use foods and sugars to produce acid all over our teeth, weakening enamel over time. Acidic foods such as tomatoes, citrus, vinegar and sugary drinks can also weaken the enamel. The centers of teeth are made up of nerves, blood vessels and living tissue. When an acid erodes the tooth and a cavity forms, it can grow large enough to reach the living tissue in the center of a tooth. As a result, seemingly minor dental decay can develop over time into a dental emergency. Toothaches happen when living tissue gets infected and attempts to swell, but cannot because it's surrounded by the hardest substance in the body. Symptoms of a tooth infection are tenderness, gum swelling, throbbing and pain, temperature sensitivity, fever and difficulty opening your mouth and swallowing. If you experience KAISERSLAUTERN

any of these symptoms, it is important to see your dentist right away. Dental decay is the most common disease in people of all ages, and prevention is the best defense. Limiting snacks throughout the day and flossing and brushing twice daily for two minutes each time, are the best habits to counter decay. It’s important to use fluoridat-

ed toothpaste to help repair enamel and strengthen teeth. Finally, rinsing your mouth with water after eating and drinking sugary foods is an easy way to dilute the mouth acids and wash away the acid-producing bacteria. Annual exams are an important part of prevention. To schedule an appointment, call the Ramstein Dental Clinic at 479-2210.

Explore your new home Great city trips, fun playgrounds for kids, delicious recipes and much more. There is so much more to Germany than the wonderful churches and castles. Have you ever heard of farm golf or seen a Celtic house? Kids and adults alike will enjoy investigating German houses of the past and whizzing down a hillside in a toboggan. From swimming pools to steel factories, there are so many places to visit. story by Julie Norkoli, contributing writer

7 great day trips in Germany Potzberg Wild Animal Park Every day from spring to fall there is a Birds of Prey Show at the Potzberg Wild Animal Park. Even visitors who don’t speak German get a thrill when the hawks swoop past. The spacious zoo has several animals and is a wonderful way to catch a glimpse of the wild boar that dominate the local forests. Info at: wildpark.potzberg.de Volklingen Steel Factory The Volklingen Steel Factory closed its doors in 1986 when its equipment and manufacturing processes became obsolete. It is the only preserved plant of its kind and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visitors are permitted to walk all around the plant for a fascinating self-guided tour. Blast furnaces that look like large canisters dominate the skyline. Cable cars run all over the plant like a chair

lift runs up a mountain. Walking around, smelling the dust, noticing the weather feeling the immensity of the factory sparks the imagination into seeing what it would have been like to work there. A tour of the plant takes around 3 hours and is well worth the short drive to the Saarbrucken area. Info at: whc.unesco.org/en/list/687 Luisenpark If you haven’t seen storks in the Ramstein area, you are sure to see them at Luisenpark. This unique and large park in Mannheim contains playgrounds, restaurants, and animals. Pink pelicans and flamingos play in the water. A butterfly may land on you in the butterfly house. Hidden behind the Chinese Garden are two terracotta Soldiers from an ancient Chinese burial site. From relaxing in the shade, climbing in the playground and viewing snakes

in the reptile house, this park offers something for everyone. Info at: www.luisenpark.de Keltendorf This Celtic living history museum lets visitors experience life in Germany 2,000 years ago. Children may get the opportunity to cut and sew leather to construct their own coin purse, or pound copper to make a medallion. See how grain was ground and check out the construction of Celtic structures. Plan ahead. This small museum is only open on the weekends.

Perfect 1-day hike near the KMC Wolfstein is only a half-hour from the Kaiserslautern Military Community of Kaiserslautern, Ramstein and Landstuhl and the home to one of the greatest one-day hikes in Germany. The first stage of the Pfälzer Höhenweg, around the town of Wolfstein in the northwest of the region, allows you to enjoy a small but scenic part of the 100 km long trail. story and photos by Michael, contributing writer “It was, quite simply, the best oneday hiking trip we had ever done.” states Michael, blogger at Easyhiker. co.uk The loop around town, at a length of just under 12 km, is neither too exhausting nor so short that it would deny you the feeling of accomplishment (which then entitles you to an extra large serving at the dinner table). The trail leads you clockwise

around the town – imagine Wolfstein on the “12” – and provides a surprising degree of variety. In the beginning, in particular, you will get splendid views over the hills around you, but there is a lot of forest, too, all rounded off with a couple of castle ruins near the end. The trail is easy to find and, overall, very well marked. Simply turn left out of the hotel and follow the markers to the Youth Hostel (the “Jugendherberge”) – you are now on a “feeder route” of the Höhenweg – on a fairly steep climb

uphill and just continue straight – into the Höhenweg trail proper – when the hostel appears on your right hand side. From then on, just follow the trail markers – until the very end when you can already see the town from above. Which is when you must descend rather than continue uphill, which will be so obvious you can’t miss it! Before, however, there were a few close calls. None closer than 2 km from the end when you must take a steep right turn off the path on the ridge.

Garmisch UNPLUGGED! Story by Wendy Payne We call it Garmisch but locals call it Ga-Pa or Garmisch-Partenkirchen. If you are familiar with this part of Bavaria and have visited numerous times, we hope this blog helps you discover some of the other “hidden” treasures. With the help of fellow blogger and friend Kelly Lauer, we hope to introduce you to parts of Ga-Pa you may have yet to discover. You may find yourself going there several times during your tour as this area is a favorite with visiting family and friends. However, here are a few “off-grid” places you may want to try on your own. Oh! Oberammergau! The adorable town of Oberammergau (just outside of Garmisch) has a plethora of activities for you to try. Their very friendly (and English speaking) tourism office is easy to find right on the main

street and offers many options to experience. Mostly known for their handmade wood carvings and ornaments, there are two Käthe Wohlfahrts (a Christmas decoration store) in this town, one specifically a “ChristKringleMarkt.” Passion Play Also famous for its “Passion Play” production which performs every ten years (the next one is in 2020), the players must be born in Oberammergau or have lived in town for 20 years. Our guide

told us the men of the town start growing their beards in early summer and the women grow their hair long. She also said it is quite a treat to see the transformation in town. Eating Out For those with a sweet tooth, you may want to try a local delicacy called “Kaiserschmerzin.” Order this at the beginning of your meal as it takes 20-30 minutes to prepare, so unfortunately I missed my chance of trying it. But I was told it is the best dessert you’ll ever have. We were encouraged to visit a wonderful restaurant at Hotel Maxx. And it is not to be missed as the food and service were impeccable. Although I missed out on having this treat, I did get to try the delicious Apfelkuchen (apple strudel) with homemade ice cream. Hiking Partnach-Klamm Partnach-Klamm is a deep gorge that is 702 meters long and over 80 meters deep in some areas. Walking the trail provides breathtaking views of rock faces, mountain sides and a raging river below. What to expect: There is a hiking path carved into the rock along the gorge. While there are poles staked in the ground with chains to use as a handrail, I don’t recommend it for persons with mobility issues because there are uneven and slick surfaces. Dogs are permitted on a leash. (If your dog tugs on the leash, this adventure also should be missed.) We saw kids as young as 6 on the trail enjoying themselves, but keep in mind that there is no room for strollers. So this trip is best left for kids who can make the walk on their own. What to wear: You Will Get Wet. In the Partnach-Klamm water drips even after a long time without precipitation. For safety’s sake, wear waterproof and slip resistant shoes. Because a lot of the trail is through tunnels, umbrellas are not advised. They’re actually more dangerous than helpful in cramped quarters. A waterproof jacket with a hood or a hat is your best bet.

Open daily: May-June and October from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. July-September from 8 a.m.-7 p.m. November-April from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Ticket prices: Adult €4 Children under 17: €2.50 Family Ticket: €9.50 How to Get to Garmisch: Garmisch is approximately 5 hours and 5 minutes drive southeast of Kaiserslautern, five hour drive south of Wiesbaden and a 3 hour drive south of Stuttgart. Authors’ Profile: Wendy Payne is a military spouse and lives with her family in Stuttgart, Germany. She is a freelance writer, blogger, and photographer. She also enjoys gardening, hiking, yoga and sharing Europe with people. Kelly is a DOD wife, devoted dog-mom, a mediocre cook, a whiskey aficionado and an avid traveler who’s exploring the Kaiserslautern area with dog and husband in town.

Explore your new home! Great city trips, fun playgrounds for kids, delicious recipes and much more.
