Throughout 2021 Aviation Detachment Rotation, Airmen from Ramstein Air Base worked with Polish air force personnel by exchanging tactics, techniques and procedures to ultimately increase interoperability.

Story and photo by Senior Airman Kristof Rixmann 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs 33rd AIR BASE, Poland — Each year, Airmen hailing from Ramstein Air Base come prepared to participate in a two-week exercise in tandem with the Polish air force near Powidz, Poland. Known as 2021 Aviation Detachment Rotation, the exercise serves two important functions which contribute to continued stability in Europe. First, ADR presents a unique opportunity to enhance interoperability between the U.S. and its NATO allies. U.S. Air Force 1st Lt. Duncan Richards, 37th Airlift Squadron ADR tactician, explains what enhancing interoperability means specifically. “To increase our interoperability with the Polish air force and other NATO partners means to form and build upon existing relationships See AV DET ROTATION, Page 2

Virtual town hall prepares community for “lockdown light” by Kelly Sanders 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs After a recent spike in COVID19 cases across Europe, German officials implemented month-long measures Nov. 2 to ward off another wave. To bring clarity to the new regulations, 86th Airlift Wing commander Brig. Gen. Josh Olson and Command Chief Hope Skibitsky hosted a virtual town hall via the Ramstein Official Facebook page Oct. 30. Joining them for the 40-minute discussion was 86th Medical Group commander, Col. (Dr.) Ryan Mihata, and the 86th Mission

Support Group commander, Col. Robert Thompson. The team answered questions and detailed how Germany’s “lockdown light” will impact base services during the month of November. Olson kicked off the discussion by reminding personnel to remain calm and remember lessons learned from months of operating under the threat of COVID-19. “Continue to be disciplined, make good choices, wash your hands, wear a face covering, watch your distance and we’ll get through this,” Olson said. Skibitsky echoed the commander’s sentiments and emphasized that Airmen should not allow

COVID-19 fatigue to cause complacency. She urged Airmen to continue to support each other during this time. With the previous host nation lockdown a recent memory, many KMC members wondered whether the same services and operations would cease as they had in the spring. Previous restrictions coincided with a DOD-directed elevation of Health Protection Condition to Charlie for all military installations. Charlie measures drove many services to cease or alter operations until Ramstein was able to safely See VIRTUAL TOWN HALL, Page 3

COMMENTARY

Three questions for your journey by Lt. Col. Gregory Kantz 37th Airlift Squadron commander I have the privilege of meeting with Airmen every day. Sometimes it is for joyful events such as promotions or awards, but other times it is for more deliberate counseling or course corrections. Whatever the circumstance, I find that the conversation eventually evolves to the point where I ask some fundamental, but incredibly important questions. Every meeting is a chance to positively influence someone’s future, but you must first understand where the other person is in their personal and professional journey before you can help them on their path. In my experience, the following questions rise to the forefront and are applicable to anyone at any age. What do you value? Since publication in 2009, more than 52 million people have watched Simon Sinek’s TedTalk “Start with Why.” Although Simon is a charismatic speaker, it is his message that resonates. No matter if you are rich or poor, an Airman or General Officer, you AV DET ROTATION from Page 1 while we’re here, ultimately allowing us to bring more air power to the skies.” Richards said. With the public display of increased air power, each iteration of ADR contributes to sustained theatre deterrence against real or potential threats. “There absolutely is an element of deterrence with Aviation Detachment Rotation,” Richards said. “We’re showing the world we’re able to work with our NATO allies at a very competent level and when we combine forces like we do

have to know what is important if you want to live a fulfilling life. We all have an unknown but finite amount of time on this earth. Although we often act to the contrary, we need to be deliberate with our precious time. You have to understand what is important before you can set or change your course. Your values should not only drive your strategic goals in life, but also explain fundamental questions about why you choose to serve. Our former Chief of Staff, Gen. David Goldfein, put it succinctly when he explained that Airmen serve because they believe in the “value proposition.” He explained that Airmen come to work because they “want to work with the most amazing people, with the greatest technology, to have a mission that matters, and give their life meaning.” If you seek fulfillment in any aspect of your life, you must know what you value.

is not important to you, then you need to ask yourself why. The answer can be deep-seated reasons or something as simple, but vexing as self-discipline. I often think of a quote from my high school football coach, a job very similar to command: “Don’t let short-term pleasures have long-term consequences.” Although it is easy to think of this in terms of major life-altering events, remember that the sum of countless small choices throughout the day, weeks, or years will have long-term consequences. These small, daily choices may or may not ultimately align with your values and goals. We must be constantly vigilant to ensure that we are acting deliberately with our time and effort.

host of indirect ways that your work can support what you value most in life.

Do your actions align with your values? Gaps between your actions and values can have dramatic results. If you are putting time and effort into something that

How do you integrate the different facets of your life? We often encounter challenges when we decide to balance our professional and personal lives. In my opinion, this approach is fundamentally flawed because it assumes that we can set up a contract between the two, as if you are two different people — a father/mother/son/daughter at home and someone else at work.

The reality is that you bring all of you home and all of you to work. As military members, we are always on duty, ready to answer our nation’s call at a moment’s notice. This doesn’t allow for “a balanced” approach. Instead, we must integrate our professional and personal lives (a concept Amazon CEO Jeff Bazos advocates) to avoid the perpetual trap of achieving “balance.” For most, integrating your work and personal life is a challenge. Although work should not be what you value most in life, it does offer fulfilling relationships and the financial means to support more strategic priorities. It can seem hypocritical to say that you value your family as a top priority but spend the majority of your time at work every week. However, you must acknowledge that to some degree, you are going to work precisely because you value your family. Your livelihood provides them with the means to experience a full and enriched life while transforming you into a better person through your relationships. This does not mean that you have a transactional relationship with work, it acknowledges that there are a

during ADR, it shows how powerful we are together.” In addition to increased interoperability and deterrence, the other primary function of ADR allows the U.S. Air Force to complete qualification training otherwise not possible at RAB. Noteworthy areas of qualification training conducted at the 33rd AB are the grass take-off and landings. “As a C-130J pilot, we take every opportunity we can get to train on unprepared surfaces which mirror those we might find in a contingency environment,” said Maj. Andrew

Huddleston, 621st Mobility Support Operations Squadron air mobility liaison officer. “In this case, we have grass landing zones, which are very rare worldwide. So, the training opportunity we have here to practice assault landings on an unprepared surface is truly priceless for the crews of the 37th AS.” Throughout the two weeks in Poland, RAB Airmen additionally train on simulated container delivery system drops, personnel and heavy equipment drops. Members from the 37th AS, 86th Logistics Readiness Squadron and 435th Contingency Readiness Squadron

train on heavy equipment platforms and low-cost low-altitude procedures to practice getting in and out of a tactical environment quickly. With training being a cornerstone of ADR, Richards underlined how valuable the training environment in Poland is for all participants. “I believe continued funding for these kinds of forward training deployments is extremely important,” Richards said. “The connections we form out here, you can’t make that connection over the phone or over an email. We need to iron out all the plans here in person

so if we did have to go into some kind of contingency we know the air space, we know what to expect, so we’ll know how to react.” On an individual basis, Richards spoke highly of his experience so far during this iteration of ADR. “This exercise is helping me realize how easy it is to interoperate with our allies,” Richards said. “The Polish are awesome and they share a lot of the same equipment we use, so that’s been great for me personally. On a broader level, I’d say ADR is showing me we have the capability to deploy anytime, anywhere and we can do that very effectively.”

It is about the journey. It is helpful to remember that your current situation is merely a snapshot of where you happen to be on your journey. Recall that when Thomas Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence, he made a key adaptation to John Locke’s “trinity” in which he substituted “life, liberty, and property” with “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” when outlining mankind’s unalienable rights. This was a deliberate decision and one packed with meaning. He recognized that human beings have an insatiable appetite for improvement that physical goods can never fulfill. Your idea of fulfillment and self-actualization are not static goals: they advance with each achievement. It is therefore the constant pursuit of your values where true happiness lies. We must recognize that we are all on a life-long journey. Our job as leaders and mentors is to help each Airman on their way. I believe that asking these three simple questions can help you and others on your path.

4th Combat Training Squadron strengthens global alliances by Senior Airman Milton Hamilton 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs NORDHORN TRAINING RANGE, GERMANY — The 4th Combat Training Squadron’s Joint Terminal Attack Controllers conducted close air support training with German, Belgian and Dutch forces at Nordhorn Training Range, Germany as part of BigFoot Nord 20, Oct. 5-9. The objective of BigFoot Nord 20 was to enhance partnerships with allies and apply career competencies in a contested environment. “The JTACs are a vital part of our frontline warfighters so it is important they remain sharp by training with an array of available coalition air assets in the midst of highly-capable dynamic threats,” said Capt. Nolan J. Ripple, 4th CTS operations flight commander. “Our JTACs are innovating advanced CAS (close air support) training opportunities to enhance their readiness to operate within a COVID-19 UPDATE from Page 1 decrease its HPCON back to Bravo in June. While the base is encouraged to be cautious and remain vigilant, Olson said an elevation of HPCON is not warranted at this time. Thompson, who oversees base services and works in tandem with DODEA leadership, confirmed there are currently no plans to change how schools or CDCs are operating throughout the KMC. Host nation regulations also allow off-base schools to remain open with COVID mitigation measures in place. Seated dining in base restaurants has been replaced by takeout and delivery-only options, but Thompson said most other mission support group services can remain open. Germany’s announcement called for a closure of fitness studios for the next month, which led many to ask whether the base will follow suit and close Fitness Centers. Air Force Fitness Centers are now closed to civilians and family members for the month of November. Limited access continues for only U.S. and NATO military members to enable them to maintain physical fitness and meet military readiness requirements. Even still, thorough COVID-19 mitigation measures like limiting

robustly contested battlespace.” Exercises such as BigFoot Nord 20 are meant to strengthen alliances and attract new partners. These partnerships create long-term advancement of U.S. interests, maintain favorable balances of power that deter aggression and support the stability that generates economic growth, a central tenant in the National Defense strategy. “What sets our BigFoot series apart as an advanced CAS exercise is the scenario development led by combat-experienced JTAC instructors,” said Lt. Col. Sarah Fortin, 4th CTS director of operations. “The U.S. Air Forces in Europe-Air Forces Africa warfare center detachment 3’s ‘Polygone,’ the dynamic surface to air threat emitters, were also incorporated into scenarios for added complexity for both participating aircrew and JTACs.” During the exercise, the 4th CTS was supported by multiple aircraft including Dutch F-35A’s, F-16 Fighting Falcons,

Belgian F-16 Fighting Falcons and German Tornado aircraft, in order to help the JTACS meet objectives for CAS. “We train with our allies and partners to help us overcome issues and determine solutions so we can continue to operate effectively and efficiently together in the future,” said Tech. Sgt. Jermaine Capalos, 4th CTS JTAC course manager instructor. “Working with the ground liaison officers and the aircrew of the Dutch 322nd Squadron gave our team crucial insight on how to develop, plan, and execute digitally aided close air support utilizing the F-35A and F-35 Lightning II aircraft.” The next advanced CAS training is scheduled for 2021 in Croatia, alongside Croatian JTACs. This first iteration of BigFoot Nord aimed to prepare the JTACs for future exercises with partner nations around USAFE-AFAFRICA, by examining strengths and identifying workable skills.

capacity, contract tracing and regular sanitation will be in place to preserve the health of the force. Several questions centered on travel, both to the U.S. or to other risk areas in Germany. Olson emphasized that German officials are asking everyone to limit all non-essential travel. “We really need to do a temporary ‘COVID deployment’ and stay home,” he said. Skibitsky added, “We are guests in this country and Germany has asked us to fall in line with the guidance that they’ve placed out there, and unnecessary travel is strongly discouraged.” She addressed that visits home during the holidays are an emotional event, and while travel to the United States can be authorized, travel comes with an acceptance of risk. She asked that everyone decide whether that trip has to happen right now. Before signing off, Thompson asked the community to be smart, patient and kind. He urged members to think before reacting, especially when it comes to commenting on social media pages. Mihata followed this sentiment by saying, “It’s very important that we consider others before ourselves. We’re not wearing these masks because it’s going to prevent me from getting sick. I’m wearing this mask because it’s going to prevent me, if I am sick, from getting [others] sick. Be mindful of those

around you and who you are allowing in your bubble. We collectively have to work together to keep each other safe and healthy.” In closing, Olson said he’s confident in Ramstein’s team of

leaders, Airmen and families to get through this new set of challenges and get out of the red. In order to do that, he reminded everyone to, “Protect our base by covering your face!”

Ramstein humanitarian efforts: Medical prowess

U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Moran Alexander-Luis, 86th Medical Support Squadron medical laboratory technician, takes samples from a refrigerator at Ramstein Air Base, Oct. 15. Blood samples are refrigerated at different temperatures to prevent degradation.

Story and photos by Airman 1st Class Jennifer Gonzales 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs With the ongoing pandemic, medical services are being relied upon more often. It goes without saying that medicine and treatments will always be needed in some capacity or another. The 86th Medical Group provides healthcare services to three wings, Third Air Force, U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa, NATO, 139 geographically separated units in 93 countries and the largest Department of Defense military community in the overseas continental United States. The 86th MDG is the largest Air Force clinic and largest USAFE medical group, according to the Military Health System. Laboratory technicians are an important part of the medical field. The analyses they perform support doctors and healthcare professionals by detecting and reporting physiological abnormalities and disease. “We test patient samples from the military and the community — so, it’s not just members of the armed forces — to make sure everyone is safe and healthy,” said Staff Sgt. Randall Marks, 86th Medical Support Squadron laboratory technician. “We also test unknown samples. If there’s a suspicious package with powder on it or something, they’ll call us up, and we’ll go test the substance to make sure it isn’t hazardous.” The day-to-day job of a lab tech can change depending on their daily rotational schedule. “It’s based off of what section

you’re in,” Marks said. “You can be up front drawing blood from patients all day. You can be in chemistry and shipping where you’re testing people for glucose or preparing samples to be shipped out to Landstuhl Regional Medical Center. You could be in hematology where you’re doing pretty much everything we do here. We do pregnancy tests, strep tests, urinalysis and blood differentials.” As part of their mission, the 86th MDG provides medical support worldwide such as the support given to West Africa this past summer. Marks was sent to the

base there to provide assistance with the pandemic. “I set up COVID-19 testing in Niamey, Niger,” Marks said. “It was the first operating COVID-19 testing site in all of West Africa.” During the course of a month, Marks tested five people who were symptomatic. Thankfully, they didn’t have the virus. “I was glad they didn’t have COVID-19 because it didn’t stop the mission for them,” Marks said. Ultimately, the 86th MDG continues to support troops, their families and the community at large. As professionals, they’re

capable of handling anything this pandemic can throw at them as well as whatever else may come. “We have a leadership team that takes no nonsense,” Marks said. “They don’t beat around the bush or anything like that. They’re very straightforward with what we need, our capabilities

and what we need to do. It makes it easy to do our job correctly, and it allows us to aid LRMC with whatever they need.” The 86th MDG leads the way in teamwork. Their leadership and the Airmen who make the mission happen are part of what makes this the World’s Best Wing.

RHCE co-hosts physical readiness training leadership course Story and photos by Russell Toof Regional Health Command Europe Trainers from Regional Health Command Europe, U.S. Army Europe, and Installation Management Command Europe recently conducted a pilot physical readiness training leadership course at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center. The course was designed to educate, enable, and empower leaders to effectively plan and lead PRT for their local unit with an emphasis on injury prevention and a 100% pass rate on the Army Combat Fitness Test. The course is a pilot for a larger injury prevention initiative coming to Europe later this fiscal year, according to Capt. Daniel Huffman, a physical therapist at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center. “This course is really to help Soldiers lead other Soldiers with their physical training,” said Huffman. “We just want to see optimal training and help Soldiers do that better.” Huffman led a majority of the three-day course, which included a mix of classroom lectures and demonstrations at the Landstuhl fitness center. “This course focused on developing effective training programs and how to conduct various exercises correctly,” said Huffman. “We also offered coaching tips.

Lt. Col. Chad Flick (center), a physical therapist and the chief of the department of rehabilitation services at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, demonstrates a fitness app during a physical readiness training leadership course.

Additionally, we provided quite a bit of research on how the right exercises can help prevent injuries while achieving performance optimization.” According to Dr. Caitlin Brooks, a health promotion specialist with USAREUR and a physical therapist,

Steffi Lux Speech Therapy / Relaxation Therapy for Children & Adults

musculoskeletal injuries are the leading reason for Soldiers to seek medical care. Those types of injuries accounted for 71% of the total Army injuries in 2019, per the “Health of the Force” report. “Now that the Army has shifted to a more equal balance of cardio, strength, and power, it’s also changing the way we address PRT,” said Brooks. “Cardio, strength, mobility and flexibility are all equal parts in this training plan to reach

the intensities of the ACFT. That way the Soldier is more well-rounded in their training and is more ready for the fight.” Attendees were mostly from Landstuhl Regional Medical Center but the class also included an Army Reserve Soldier and civilians from the Landstuhl Army Wellness Center. “I thought it was a really good class, definitely a lot of great information," said Sgt. Stefan Kinsey, a

physical therapist at LRMC. “Rehab is just scaled down working out. So being able to explain not necessarily just what they are doing but why they are doing it, once they are done with physical therapy, you've given them the tools to get stronger and stay healthy."

Airlifter of the Week: Airman discovers WWII relic Story and photo by Airman 1st Class Jennifer Gonzales 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

Staff Sgt. Tyler D. Nelson, 86th Maintenance Group maintenance operations center senior controller, was recognized as Airlifter of the Week for his excellent work ethic and how he managed to potentially save lives outside of work with an innocent hobby. Nelson, a husband and father, is from a small town in Michigan known as West Branch, where he grew up hiking, fishing, hunting and metal detecting. He describes the area as being very similar to Germany, with trees, grass and the ability to go outside without worrying about snakes. “It’s a very small town,” Nelson said. “I think the whole county only has a couple thousand people. There’s a high school, one [area] that has the fast food and when I left they got a Wal-Mart. Everyone was excited. We even had a day in high school where we all drove our tractors to school.” The birth of Nelson’s second son compelled him to seek a more family-friendly career. “Having that second kid, I was working three jobs and I pretty much never saw my family during the week,” Nelson said. “I’d come home, sleep for a couple of hours, get up and go to the next job. I couldn’t keep it up anymore. I was never seeing them and it wasn’t a healthy relationship for me and my wife or me and the kids.” This marked a turning point for Nelson, which would change his life for the better.

U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Tyler D. Nelson, 86th Maintenance Group maintenance operations center senior controller, receives a coin from Brig. Gen. Josh M. Olson, 86th Airlift Wing commander, at Ramstein Air Base, Oct. 23. Nelson was recognized as Airlifter of the week for standardizing the maintenance operations center, developing and implementing an aircraft tow tracking system and discovering multiple unexploded ordnances in the area surrounding the Kaiserslautern Military Community.

“I’d been thinking about joining the military for a couple of years and I had family who’d been in all the branches, so I just took that step and joined the Air Force,” Nelson said. During the performance of his duties, he observed the inconsistencies between different shifts in the MOC and took the extra steps to alleviate it. His efforts increased the work center effectiveness and reduced training time by 50 percent. “We had processes that were in place, but there wasn’t a whole lot of consistency between shifts,” Nelson said. “People would do one thing their way and the other

shift would do it another way. There wasn’t any fluidity between shifts, so one of the controllers and I made a training booklet just to standardize all the processes so everything was the same. We printed out step-by-step instructions for how to do everything, so if anyone wasn’t sure what to do, they had a reference they could fall back on if they were on a shift by themselves on the weekend or something.”

took, so if something happens on the ramp we know exactly what’s going on,” Nelson explained. Last, but certainly not least, while he was out metal detecting on a nearby farm in August, Nelson discovered an unexploded ordnance from the World War II era, which had been shallowly buried. “Typically, we find a lot of old plow blades, but once I started getting to the end of it, I saw the fuse on it,” Nelson said. “I backed up, composed myself and waited until the polizei experts came out and looked at it, then we called Explosive Ordnance Disposal.” The UXO was identified as an 88 millimeter anti-aircraft shell, which EOD safely detonated. “The farmer was crying,” Nelson said. “He was very nervous that his kids ran the tractors for so many years as well as him and his dad, so he was just very emotional.” Since then, Nelson has discovered about ten more UXO’s, all of which have been safely disposed of without incident. Not all heroes wear capes and Nelson has certainly shown his capabilities, whether it’s in the shop or enjoying a day outside with a metal detector.

Nodal Lightning enhances rapid global mobility

by Senior Airman Milton Hamilton 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs The 521st Air Mobility Operations Wing conducted its second iteration of exercise Nodal Lightning at Ramstein Air Base and several geographically separated units from Oct. 19-24. Exercises such as Nodal Lightning enable the 521st AMOW to test future operating concepts and clearly define assets and manpower that can be transported quickly and efficiently for contingency missions, which helps to strengthen their priorities of full spectrum readiness and mobility operations in a contested environment. “Nodal Lightning is the AMOW’s full spectrum readiness exercise that tests the entirety of the eastern route, across 15 countries and two areas of responsibility, in an integrated

peer threat scenario,” said Col. Adrienne Williams, 521st AMOW commander. “The exercise tested our ability to perform our core operations under contested and limited conditions. It also tested the ability to execute the en route mission set at any permissive operating location, all while sustaining rapid global mobility at our current nodal locations.” The exercise’s number one priority was to strengthen a multi-capable Airmen concept called “lift-and-shift” throughout the 521st AMOW. A lift-and-shift is a quick relocation for airlift in the event primary runways are unusable. “Our multi-capable Airmen are the platform that enables agile employment capabilities,” said Lt. Col. Matthew Kelley, 521st AMOW inspector general. “During this exercise, we wanted to test the en route functions

in a small footprint package, while maneuvering within existing infrastructure where established en route capabilities were not already in place.” During a lift-and-shift mission, the 521st AMOW can use a small specialized team of approximately 25 Airmen who can perform multiple tasks needed to move assets quickly. “We are training, testing and shaping how 521st AMOW Airmen can fill each other’s roles, so we can send a package of Airmen to different runways and have a team set to support incoming aircraft,” Kelley said. “It allows us the platform to further hone

and refine how we support rapid global mobility.” Exercise Nodal Lightning’s goal was to demonstrate that the 521st AMOW, and its tenant units located in U.S. European Command and U.S. Central Command, have the ability to operate in a contested, degraded or operationally limited environment during contingency operations. The exercise, and the multicapable Airmen concept, support and test other evolving operational concepts within the U.S. Air Force, including Agile Combat Employment. The ACE concept is intended to ensure U.S. Air Forces in Europe are

ready for potential contingencies by enabling forces to operate from locations with varying levels of capacity and support. It is a major focus area for U.S. Air Force senior leaders in the European and the Pacific areas of responsibility as threats and operational environments rapidly evolve. The 521st AMOW is on the leading edge of testing the concept within Air Mobility Command. “Nodal Lightning is part of a greater proof of concept,” Williams said. “We are refining how we support rapid global mobility and accelerating change to ensure global reach.”

Ramstein postal operations makes mail move Story and photos by Senior Airman Noah Coger 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

It’s no secret that the holidays at Ramstein Air Base bring increased traffic to postal operations. Family members in the U.S. are sending packages to loved ones, active duty members are ordering presents and taking advantage of Black Friday deals, and many are sending holiday greetings. Every year, the 786th Force Support Squadron postal clerks meet this surge head-on and do their best to ensure everyone gets their mail in time. The onset of COVID-19 this year presented a unique set of circumstances for the post office. They have been in “holiday mode” since midApril, with no signs of slowing down as they enter the holiday season. “During the height of COVID-19 over the past year, the Northside Post Office saw a 61% increase for incoming packages,” said Tech. Sgt. Darren Hinds-Webster, 786th FSS official mail manager. “Between mid-April and May we saw the Postal Service Center deliver more than 90,000 packages.” Germany’s lockdown measures earlier in the year saw many nonessential businesses close. This potentially prevented the spread of COVID19, but had an inverse effect on mail flow, as many people turned to online shopping for various items. Those same measures required squadrons on Ramstein to find ways to operate with minimal manning. During those two months, packages delivered to the Northside Post

U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Kamar Francis, 786th Force Support Squadron postal service center noncommissioned officer in charge, grabs a package from a roll-out conveyor belt at Ramstein Air Base, Oct. 27. Two roll-out conveyor belts that extend to both sides of the Northside Post Office are used in conjunction with a stationary conveyor belt to accelerate processing incoming packages.

Office amounted to approximately the same number as last year’s holiday season. The post office not only had to navigate mitigating factors to prevent the spread of COVID-19, but also had to operate with limited manning while meeting the demands of increased operations. “We understand the magnitude of our current climate,” Hinds-Webster said. “We understand that our customers rely on various essentials: voting ballots, credit cards and other personal communication. For that reason, telework is not an option for us.” Despite COVID-19 challenges, the post office remains dedicated to ensuring timely processing of packages, incoming and outgoing. “As a postmaster, I enjoy serving our customers by delivering packages that are important to them,” said Master Sgt. Dandre Broderick, 786th FSS postmaster. “You never

know what might be in that letter or parcel that can make someone’s day.” To achieve this objective, the post office has four main sections split among 52 Airmen servicing more than 7,000 active mailboxes. They’re all working toward one goal: customer satisfaction. The Postal Service Center consists of two smaller sections: Receipt and Dispatch, which is responsible for the receiving and delivery of all incoming personal mail; and Directory Service, which locates and re-routes first class mail with incorrect information that cannot be delivered as addressed. The Customer Service team fields all service-related issues that include in-and out-processing of P.O. boxes, package inquiries, and forwarding or holding of mail for members that

are deployed or TDY. In addition, they also handle the general directory program, which allows service members that are deployed to Ramstein to receive mail. The Official Mail Center operates the registered mail cage, which processes the most secure form of mail. “Our main customers at the Official Mail Center include the Air Force Office of Special Investigations, Medical Logistics, and personal registered packages,” Hinds-Webster said. “A lot of units use registered mail to send sensitive information because it is the best, most secure way to send mail. It’s guaranteed to have a handto-hand transaction and signature for that transaction, every step of the way.” Official Mail also services 127 units on Ramstein. Their mobile distribution vehicles run three routes

to hand-deliver to 85 of those units, Monday through Friday. The last section, Finance and Package Shipping, helps customers fill out customs forms, send voting ballots, and ship packages to more than 420 locations stateside and overseas. With all of the sections that the North Side Post Office maintains and tasks which those sections are responsible it’s Airmen are really the core of its operations. “During the wake of COVID, they were dedicated to the mission,” Broderick said. “Keeping safety first, some volunteered to work on their days off and weekends, just to ensure we did not get too far behind. You cannot beat that dedication. As Postmaster, I feel that I work with 52 of the greatest professionals.”

Av-Det Rotation: Great success

A Polish air force C-130E aircraft prepares to land following an interfly training mission with C-130J Super Hercules aircraft assigned to Ramstein Air Base during 2021 Aviation Detachment Rotation at 33rd Air Base near Powidz, Poland Oct. 23. Continued training with the Polish air force, such as interfly training missions, allows the United States and its allies to respond to threats and support global operations.

A Low-Cost Low-Altitude airdrop falls near the target marker at a drop zone during 2021 Aviation Detachment Rotation at the 33rd Air Base near Powidz, Poland, Oct. 20. Throughout the two-week exercise, a total of 36 LCLAs were successfully dropped onto the targeted DZ.

• 51 sorties executed, 98% mission success rate • 36 Low-Cost Low-Altitude airdrops • 31 passes on unimproved fields certifying six pilots, removing two pilots from annual waivers, and met 13 annual currency requirements. The training satisfied nearly 33 percent of 37th AS annual requirements.

33rd Air Base, POLAND — Two weeks ago, approximately 100 Airmen departed Ramstein Air Base, Germany before landing at the 33rd Air Base near Powidz, Poland Oct. 19. On Oct. 24, Germany’s Robert Koch Institute designated the entire country of Poland as a COVID19 high-risk area, subjecting it to renewed COVID-19 restrictions. This year’s iteration of ADR came to a close on Oct. 31. Despite the country's high-risk status, the training event was a

success on two equally important fronts: force health protection and training. “As a result of following the guidelines we were given we had no positive COVID patients,” said Dr. Joe Abrams, 37th Airlift Squadron flight surgeon. “Overall health and wellness fared better than any other FTD I’ve been a part of in the last two years.” With careful consideration, proactive steps were taken to ensure all Airmen followed force health protection, Department of Defense, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and host nation guidance to avoid contracting or spreading respiratory U.S. & GERMAN ATTORNEYS U.S. & GERMAN DIVORCES • SUPPORT ISSUES • EEO WILLS & PROBATE • EMPLOYMENT • PERSONAL INJURY MSPB • CONTRACTOR ISSUES • TAX ADVISORS

illnesses like the flu or COVID-19. Throughout the forward training deployment, Airmen falling under seven different agencies operated under this guidance. Every training event incorporated integrated prevention and protection measures to mitigate undue risk of exposure. The abundance of caution taken throughout ADR can be explained by one simple fact: deterrence will not be sacrificed in light of the pandemic. Continued training with the Polish air force allows the United States and its allies to respond to threats and support global operations.

This Polish ADR specifically enabled training for the U.S. Air Force and Polish crews to engage in formation flights of up to five aircraft, practice fighter engagements and unimproved airfield landing training. “Due to our outstanding maintenance record and cooperative weather during this exercise we were able to accomplish all of the intended training quickly

which gave us the flexibility to fully engage with our tactics and intel teams to execute non-standard and complex tactical scenarios,” said Maj. Kyle Guathier, 37th AS pilot and ADR detachment commander. On Oct. 31, three C-130J Super Hercules aircraft assigned to RAB flew the approximately 100 Airmen who participated in the Polish ADR back to Ramstein following the exercise’s conclusion. Despite COVID-19, this FTD was a successful one. The Airmen who participated in this exercise have only themselves to thank after abiding by the force health protection guidelines. This discipline allowed Airmen from Ramstein to accomplish thousands of training tasks while enhancing interoperability with NATO allies.

Ops Never Stops: 86 OSS secures rapid mobility, professional airlift Story and photos by Airman 1st Class John R. Wright 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs The 86th Operations Support Squadron secures the 86th Airlift Wing rapid mobility and professional airlift mission by maintaining and ensuring the diverse array of capabilities necessary for seamless aircraft movement at Ramstein Air Base. Comprising more than half of the squadron, the Airfield Operations Flight is responsible for the safe arrival and departure of all 86th AW, transient, exercise and deployed aircraft. “The AOF is a group of different Air Force Specialty Codes that all come together to expedite the flow of aircraft,” said 1st Lt. Zachary Diehl, 86th OSS airfield operations flight commander. The flight is divided into three sections: Air Traffic Control, made up of the Tower and Ground

facilitates the flow of air traffic. Prior to departure, aircraft will communicate with the tower. Once the aircraft is in the sky, pilots will communicate with GCA, who will guide them until they transition to German air traffic controllers. “We are uniquely certified to be safety advisors for air traffic,” said Staff Sgt. Josh Bailey, 86th OSS air traffic control craftsman. “That’s something that can take a long time to train on, but it’s very important to make sure it is completed thoroughly because we have a very important job of keeping the aircraft safe and keeping things moving quickly.” When many ATC facilities decreased mission coverage and hours of operation during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ramstein ATC Tower experienced increased activity. The team quickly adapted to a new manning schedule while maintaining 24/7 operations. They also managed to incorporate personnel from other groups to

preserve controlling abilities, a readiness concern GCA applied to pilots, as well. “We help ensure rules governing flight and practice approaches for the pilots because they need to make sure they stay proficient in all the different types of landings,” said Senior Airman Torey L. Jinks, 86th OSS air traffic controller. “We make sure that they’re still qualified, and when they go downrange, they can land safely.” Training and readiness play a key role in all aspects of the AOF. Airmen assigned to Airfield Management must be proficient in all aspects of maintaining a safe airfield. “We ensure that all of the inbound Airmen are trained and qualified correctly,” said Staff Sgt. Tessa Bunn, 86th OSS airfield management and training noncommissioned officer in charge. “We make sure that they can identify any discrepancies while they’re out there doing inspections and checks.”

Airfield Management maintained operational effectiveness during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well. The team fused more than 50 COVID-19 missions with multicountry travel restrictions, limited manning, daily training and transient flight operations, while also teaming with Air Mobility Command, the 86th Medical Group, Landstuhl Regional Medical Center and Transient Alert to execute expeditious support. In order to execute missions successfully, AOF must have reliable and seamless communication, a capability ensured by RAWS. The section maintains the electrical and mechanical components of the communications between air traffic controllers and aircraft. In the past, RAWS consisted of airfield systems and radar systems. Airmen of the two career fields are now trained, or are in the process of training, and capable in all systems across the board. “The benefit of the merger is that you have a more versatile Airman,” said Staff Sgt. Christopher Kenny, 86th OSS RAWS supervisor. “They’re able to go to any base and essentially maintain any radar airfield weather system on that airfield.” All the processes of the 86th OSS AOF uphold Ramstein’s status as the premiere military logistics hub for Europe, Africa and the Middle East. “The 86th OSS is a very diverse squadron that has a lot of different career fields,” Diehl said. “There’s intel, weather, aircrew flight equipment… but for me and my flight, we’re just a portion of the squadron — the largest portion, typically. We do what the OSS is meant to do. (We) support operations for the base. That’s the entire purpose of why we’re here; to ensure aircraft depart and arrive safely.”

New spectrum strategy reveals DOD’s plan to master airwaves by C. Todd Lopez Department of Defense News Short of face-to-face conversation, wired internet or telephone land lines — a mystery to many young Americans — nearly every form of communication the Defense Department uses today, especially on the battlefield, is wireless. Some U.S. adversaries are working very hard to cut off that form of communication. Last week, the Defense Department released the “2020 Department of Defense Electromagnetic Spectrum Superiority Strategy.” This document lays out how the military will guarantee its continued and unfettered access to the airwaves, or spectrum, which facilitates GPS, radio, satellite and cell phone communications. This document also shows how the military plans to master that spectrum while on the battlefield. “The rise of mobile systems and digital technology across the globe has placed enormous strain on the available spectrum for DOD’s command, control and communication needs,” said Dana Deasy, the department’s chief

information officer. “This strategy will help set the conditions needed to ensure our warfighters have freedom of action within the electromagnetic spectrum to successfully conduct operations and training in congested, contested and constrained multidomain environments across the globe.” The electromagnetic spectrum is the range of radiation frequencies that are used to transmit information wirelessly. While frequencies above 300GHz make up infrared light, visible light, ultraviolet light, and x-rays, frequencies at 300GHz and below are used to transmit information for cell phones, television, radio, satellite communications, GPS, hand-held two-way radios and even key fobs that lock and unlock cars. Those who want to transmit information over those communication frequencies typically apply to the federal government for a license. This ensures that only one entity is attempting to use a frequency at a time. There are hundreds of locations on the electromagnetic spectrum blocked out by the U.S. federal government — and by governments

globally — for specific applications by specific users in every part of the world. The Defense Department is, perhaps, the biggest user of spectrum in the United States, said Frederick D. Moorefield, the deputy chief information officer for command, control and communications. “DOD uses spectrum for almost everything wireless, everything from tactical radios that the Soldier uses in the field, or in operations, to satellite communications, to radar that we use to track objects and devices,” he said. “We use it for everything wireless.” For a long time, Moorefield said, DOD was uncontested in its use of the spectrum. That means either stateside or abroad, wherever the U.S. military went, it was able to use whatever portion of the spectrum it wanted to facilitate its own communications. Other nations weren’t technologically capable of using spectrum. But that is no longer the case. Now, due to the low cost of entry into spectrum use and ubiquity of wireless communications equipment, any adversary, not just peer and near-peer competitors, has as much access to the spectrum as the Defense Department. This means that in any conflict, any adversary may be using spectrum crucial to the department and preventing the military from being able to use it. Adversaries may also use jamming techniques to actively block DOD from using portions of the spectrum. “Technologies evolved and our peer competitors have improved and watched us over the years and have gotten smart,” Moorefield said. “We’re getting jammed on everything from GPS to our [unmanned aircraft systems.] That’s why we have our counter-UAS program out there. Everything’s getting interfered with.

That is a contested environment. Everything’s getting jammed.” It’s not just on the battlefield where the U.S. can be jammed either, Moorefield said. Jamming is happening while doing training overseas and in other places as well. “Just during our training and exercises, we’re getting jammed,” he said. “Stuff is going on — GPS is getting denied and jammed all the time in different countries. Our UASs are getting jammed and spoofed.” Even stateside, Moorefield said, the department finds itself in competition in the electromagnetic spectrum with industries and communities around military bases. “It is getting more and more crowded,” he said. “At some of our bases we used to be able to go out and do training and testing and exercises — just go out and do whatever we wanted to do. But now, the surrounding neighborhoods and the surrounding communities are just getting more and more crowded using wireless. So that access that we used to use, and freedom that we used to have using the spectrum on those bases is diminishing as the communities are growing.” The department’s electromagnetic spectrum superiority strategy is driven by three “Cs,” Moorefield said: a contested environment, spectrum congestion and spectrum constraint. A contested environment, he said, means adversaries have gotten smarter in how they jam the spectrum. Even if an adversary isn’t using a portion of the spectrum, he said, they can prevent the U.S. from using it through jamming. “We have to figure out how to be smarter than them and develop capabilities to allow us to be able to get access to the spectrum whenever we need it, and however we need it and to also be able to deny the enemy the

same access,” Moorefield said. “We call that ‘freedom of maneuver’ within the electromagnetic spectrum.” The congested environment, he said, means there’s simply more people wanting to use spectrum. That might mean stateside or abroad, in actual warfare or in training, the department will find that there’s just a lot more users now of the electromagnetic spectrum than there have been. “The spectrum space is getting more and more crowded,” Moorefield said. “That includes 5G, the next G coming, SATCOM, tactical radios, commercial and federal — everybody’s using spectrum more and more. So, we have a congestion problem. Everything is crowded.” Finally, he said, there is constraint. Whereas the department in the past had more freedom to move about the spectrum when it needed to, domestic and international regulations have decreased the amount of spectrum available for military access. “We don’t have that big access and use that we used to have. DOD used to use a spectrum any way they wanted to. Those days are over,” he said. “That constraint is limiting us in our ability to train as we fight.” To ensure that in the future the U.S. military has the ability to operate in the electromagnetic spectrum, the department has developed the “2020 Department of Defense Electromagnetic Spectrum Superiority Strategy.” “Superiority means being able to access the spectrum, use any frequency you want to, be able to maneuver ... and deny the enemy access to the spectrum at the same time,” said Moorefield. The strategy includes five goals to help the department attain that superiority: 1. Develop superior EMS capabilities.​ 2. Evolve to an agile, fully integrated EMS architecture.​ 3. Pursue total force EMS readiness.​ 4. Secure enduring partnerships for EMS advantage.​ 5. Establish effective EMS governance.​ For the U.S. military to attain that superiority, there will need to be modernization and reform, new policies put in place, and new gear — all of which is spelled out in the strategy. “The department’s evolution in the EMS is necessary for the U.S. military’s ability to effectively sense, command, control, communicate, test, train, protect and project force,” said Ellen Lord, the undersecretary of defense for acquisition and sustainment. “Modernizing to maintain competitive advantage over near-peer adversaries will enable DOD to assert

November 6, 2020 EMS superiority and mitigate risks to U.S. national and economic security.” One part of reform, said Moorefield, is a change in the way spectrum is managed today. “Today, spectrum is managed by static frequency assignments and licenses. We have to get dynamic, flexible and cognitive to be dynamic enough to be able to move around at different frequency bands.” Also involved, and part of the strategy, is development of spectrum sharing capability. That means acknowledging that there are other users of a segment of spectrum the DOD wants access to, that there are benefits to U.S. commerce if the private sector or even other federal agencies have access to that spectrum, and then developing a system whereby more than one entity can take turns using that part of the spectrum when needed. That’s not happened in the past, but it’s happening now, Moorefield said. EMS superiority will also involve new kinds of technology that are able to determine on their own what frequency they ought to be on at any time, Moorefield said. That technology will be able to assess the environment to see what else is using spectrum, and what part of it, and then find the best available portion of the spectrum to use to accomplish the communications it needs to accomplish — all without the assistance of users. “We’re trying to get to autonomous kinds of operations, meaning machine-to-machine,” he said. “You’ve got the machines talking to each other. You won’t have to have segregated allocations. You’ll have the machine built to be able to tune across a variety of different frequency bands. It’ll listen within the environment. And it’ll be talking to another machine and say I’m using this frequency; you move to another frequency.” Policy changes are needed, as well. The department’s acquisition elements must be allowed to obtain the right kind of equipment to attain spectrum superiority, he said. “We have to be able to reform acquisition [policies] so that they know that they can build capability to do that — to be able to be dynamic,” he said. “Today we can’t do that. The regulations don’t support it. We have to reform the regulations to allow dynamic spectrum operations. We have to inform acquisition so they can now acquire those kinds of capabilities. We need to inform research

and engineering so they can do the research and development, so that acquisition can purchase it.” There’s a lot of equipment in the department’s inventory today that was designed to operate in the EMS. But that equipment was built to operate in clearly-defined areas of the spectrum. Eventually, all that gear will need to be replaced with new gear that can operate more freely in the spectrum, and share spectrum with other pieces of gear. That’s going to take several years to make the transition, Moorefield said. But along the way, new gear will be cognizant of the older equipment on the battlefield, and will be able to work alongside it. “We’ve got old stuff out there, we’ve got medium stuff and we’ve got new stuff,” he said. “As you do your tech refresh, and you implement the policies into the acquisition reform, to be able to build

dynamic spectrum stuff, that new capability will be able to cohabitate around the old stuff because it now has that dynamic flexible operation. So it’s not sitting on a single frequency. I don’t care what your old stuff is doing, I’m going to operate around you. And when that old thing expires, then they’re going to tech refresh and become dynamic. Over time, we’ll get there. But it’s going to take us time to do that.” Another big part of the superiority strategy is the blending of the electromagnetic warfare and electromagnetic spectrum management communities into one “electromagnetic spectrum operations” or EMSO community, Moorefield said. “In the past, the electronic warfare community kind of did their own thing,” he said. “They’re out there doing jamming, electronic attack and the protect mission without any

regard to the other communication equipment in the battlefield.” The result of that, he said, sometimes created spectrum “fratricide” on the battlefield, where blue force use of the spectrum to damage enemy forces also hurt other blue force operators. “The guys on the ground were getting blasted — they couldn’t even talk on their radios anymore because you got a big platform flying through and he’s just blasting out, jamming the entire battlefield,” Moorefield said. The merging of the existing electronic warfare and EMSM communities into an EMSO community, he said, can fix this. “This now blends this all together and forces us as a department to be able to orchestrate this battlefield,” he said. “Now you have EW, you got all your other comms — whether it’s

tactical radios, radars, EW, all being orchestrated in the environment. Our goal is to develop a common operating spectrum picture so that the commander can see what those operations look like and he can command and control those operations, based on that spectrum picture.” The strategy doesn’t lay out a timeline for how the Defense Department will get mastery of the EMS. Instead, Moorefield said, the strategy sets a “broad vision of where we go and how we get there.” What’s clearer, he said, is the consequences of not achieving spectrum superiority. “If we don’t figure out how to dominate the spectrum space we’re going to be at the mercy of our peer competitors,” he said. Air Force Gen. John E. Hyten, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the 2020 Department of Defense Electromagnetic Spectrum Superiority Strategy is what the Defense Department needs to ensure U.S. warfighters continue to have freedom of action wherever they are asked to fight. “The department is dedicated to a unified, holistic electromagnetic spectrum operations approach which ensures our freedom of action in the EMS at the time and place of our choosing,” Hyten said. “We cannot expect military success in any domain if we fail to take bold action to ensure that the United States and its allies have freedom to act in the spectrum. Implementing the EMS Superiority Strategy enables us to take that bold action so we are able to dominate the spectrum in all domains and, if challenged, win against our enemies.”

SAPRO Director pledges ‘Zero Tolerance’ for sexual assault, harassment The new director of the Defense Department's Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office hit the ground running after being in the field for many years and hearing firsthand service members' concerns about sexual assault and harassment. “Major General Coward's leadership experience over his distinguished career will bring a critical perspective in our fight against sexual assault and harassment,” Elizabeth P. Van Winkle, the Executive Director of DOD's Office of Force Resiliency, said. “His previous successes as a commander will generate greater understanding and collaboration across the Department, and I am confident that his leadership will prove vital in our efforts.” The general said he understands, personally, how sexual assault can affect servicemen's and servicewomen's readiness and other factors in their lives. As a result, he said sexual assault awareness and prevention must be a priority for commanders, as it was for him in the field. “Ensuring we have a ready force

capable of high-level performance is my top priority. However, that can only come with treating all who serve with dignity and respect,” Coward said. “Every service member must be able to trust that unit commanders' and leadership's response to sexual assault and harassment occurs with

‘zero-defects’ — we must get this right, every time.” Dr. Nate Galbreath, SAPRO deputy director, testified in July before the House Armed Services Committee that data shows the estimated prevalence rates of sexual assault in DOD has decreased by more than a third in the past 14 years, and reporting sexual assault is four times what it was in 2006. However, Dr. Galbreath also noted that the DOD's most recent survey of active duty personnel in 2018 showed an increase in the prevalence of sexual

assault on women. Additionally, that year, about 24% of active-duty women and 6% of active-duty men indicated experiencing behavior consistent with sexual harassment in the year before being surveyed. His message to Congress was that work still needs to be done. Coward agreed 110%, he said. Coward acknowledged that some men and women continue to be reluctant to report sexual assault out of embarrassment or fear of retaliation. He stressed that service members deciding to report an incident is a

personal decision and they can confidentially check with their local sexual assault response coordinator or victim advocate. He added that everyone is working hard to provide service members with the help they need to recover. Coward also stressed the special responsibility that command holds to ensure service members can rely on leaders when making a report. Major General Coward also noted that unit culture plays a role in the occurrence of sexual assault in the military: DOD data show that workplaces with high levels of sexual harassment or incivility also have higher rates of sexual assault. “I've always worked in diverse organizations, even in the air defense branch, which is considered to be a 'combat arms branch.' Diversity makes us better warriors, whether those differences be in gender, race, education, or experience. When the Army introduced, for instance, women in infantry and other traditionally male units, sexual assault and sexual harassment remained at the very top of my list of non-negotiable behaviors. It simply must not happen in the profession of arms. Zero tolerance. However, if it does happen, we want everyone to pick the reporting option that is right for them and get the help they need.” Fighting the battle against sexual assault and harassment is what motivates Coward each morning to give his best: “I ask myself 'What can I personally do to make a difference and carry the water of the young servicemen and women out there in order for them to do their jobs?' I spend the rest of the day working with the SAPRO team on sustainable, adaptable answers to that question.” To find out more about sexual assault reporting options and support, contact the DOD SafeHelpline, the sole hotline for members of the DOD community affected by sexual assault, call 877-995-5247 or visit https:// safehelpline.org.

by Col (Dr.) Ryan Mihata 86th Medical Group Commander As many of you are hopefully aware, Germany implemented increased restrictions nationwide due to the rising COVID-19 case counts. In the local area, the case count doubled in the past month compared to the previous seven months, and Ramstein Air Base is also experiencing an increase in cases. There is no doubt that COVID-19 is around us, and we need to maintain our prevention measures. For Ramstein, I get a lot of questions about the different

requirements for quarantine and isolation. Isolation is the term for those who have COVID-19, and quarantine is the term for those who had close contact with a positive member or who traveled from a high risk area. In general, there is a 14-day quarantine requirement for all travel to or from a “risk” location, which today is essentially everywhere. However, if the travel was official (PCS, TDY), per modified General Order #2, you can test on the sixth day of quarantine and end the quarantine if the test is negative. If you were traveling on leave (including emergency

leave), you can test after day 10. Unfortunately, we are only testing TRICARE beneficiaries, so others will have to wait the full 14 days. The modified General Order #2 is an Air Force (Ramstein) installation directive and does not apply on other installations. These “clearance” tests after travel should not be confused with medically indicated tests. Individuals who test positive can be released from isolation after 10 days as long as they meet certain criteria including no fever for the previous 24 hours and improving symptoms. The Centers for Disease Control and

Page 19

Prevention stopped the recommendation for a test-based strategy for known positive cases as experience demonstrates followup tests can be positive for weeks after the person is well and no longer infectious. If you are a close contact of a known positive, there is no release from quarantine earlier than 14 days. The quarantine for close contacts is longer than for those who have COVID-19 due to the time it takes for the virus to grow and because of how much of the virus is needed to produce a positive result. To be released, you also need a negative test, which

is typically collected between days 11 and 14. If you have further questions, please see the CDC website for an in depth discussion about discontinuation of precautions: https://www.cdc.gov/ coronavirus/2019-ncov/hcp/disposition-hospitalized-patients.html Finally, no update on the influenza vaccine for the 4-65 year old population. Luckily, we have not seen any influenza in our population. I hope we will have our vaccine shipment within the next 10 days, and we will publish details as soon as possible. Remember: wash your hands, wear your face covering, and keep your distance!

Page 20 by MilitaryinGermany.com A trip to Niederhausen is good for your body and your soul. This small wine village on the banks of the Nahe River is off the beaten path, and yet is filled with brilliant paths. And, during an era in which travel to quiet, rural places has never been more attractive, Niederhausen makes an excellent choice. You can spend most of your time outside and experience incredible German natural beauty. You can feel like you’ve undertaken a journey without having to travel too far. And, most importantly, you can return home feeling as though you’ve discovered something cool and interesting. Why Niederhausen? Aside from the fact that Niederhausen feels like a secret village — which brings its own sort of thrill — it offers day-trippers many cool benefits. Here’s a short list. 1. Discover Nahe wine country. Niederhausen is a great jumping-off point to discover Nahe River wineries. With a tradition that stretches back two millennia, Nahe valley vintners are just as skilled as their counterparts in the more well-known Rhine and Mosel

regions. Visit a winery (or two) and discover something new. And, in ordinary times, there are also wonderful country gasthauses in which you can enjoy lunch with a glass of wine. 2. Mountain biking galore. The hills surrounding Niederhausen are also rich with mountain biking trails. Get a ride in before or after (or both) you visit a winery, to make the visit all the more rewarding.

3. An awesome place to wear out pets and/or children. Hiking opportunities abound in and around Niederhausen. If you’re feeling especially adventurous, make your way across the Nahe and hike 300 meters upward to the Lemberg summit. This is the highest point in the region, and it offers incredible views. The one thing you have to see: Niederhausen Weinwanderweg

To truly capture the essence of Niederhausen, follow the short (just over 4 kilometers) loop trail known as the Niederhausen Weinwanderweg. Here, you’ll wander with a purpose through the town and through the vineyards. Vineyard art will greet you along the way. Best of all, you’ll get a rich sense of what a Nahe River wine village feels like – and an ample amount of fresh air.

Getting there By car, Niederhausen is an hour from Kaiserslautern, 45 minutes from Wiesbaden and 2.5 hours north of Stuttgart. Visit the Deutsche Bahn website for train information. For U.S. government employees, including service members, remember to always follow command regulations, which may be different than host nation policies when it comes to travel.
