Airmen build partnerships beyond flightline Story and photo by Senior Airman Damon Kasberg 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs POWIDZ AIR BASE, Poland — For the past three weeks, Airmen and guardsmen have worked together to complete training requirements and build interoperability with the Polish air force during Aviation Detachment 16-1. With less than a week remaining of the flying training deployment, U.S. Airmen made time to reach out to the local community Oct. 30. Members of the 86th Airlift Wing visited a special needs school in Wrzesnia, Poland, where they received a warm welcome from the students. “I was really excited to see the kids and their reactions,” said Senior Airman Chasady Harris, 86th Operations Support Squadron aircrew flight equipment apprentice. “Before we even walked into the school, I could see them staring out the windows. Children are our future and having these positive interac-

We

would love to continue this cooperation.” The children agreed. “We’re happy Americans visited us,” said Maria Nowak, student at the special needs school. “We like learning English.” An hour away in the city of Kleczew, another group of Airmen visited a military school. They had the opportunity to talk with students and enjoy a friendly game of volleyball against the school’s team.

Typically, your manpower document barely mans you for that mission. When you take on another unnecessary enduring task with no more resources you degrade your shop. As a unit commander, we many times do not get a choice on what missions we’re given without additional manning, but we very quickly see the impacts on the unit. In your life, take a look at what you’re doing. Do you need to be doing it, or is it mission creep that someone else should be doing? Private life is where I see this most blatantly. For example, Airman one loans Airman two his car for a week. Next thing you know, Airman two is driving the car more than Airman one but not paying for gas, insurance or fixes. At work or home, be aware that a favor today is an obligation tomorrow and limit this where you can. You will be happier and more effective. In summary, there is no genius philosophy here. I suspect you’re like me and will have a few unexpected decisions that will hit you next week. If any of these perspectives help you it was worth your time reading this.

not only on the Air Force but also for the U.S. in general. For some, this could be their first encounter with Americans. The feedback thus far has been very positive, and there are continued requests for visits such as these.” As the visits came to an end, Airmen and students said their farewells, but as the Air Force continues to work closely with their Polish allies, it wasn’t truly goodbye.

Bioenvironmental helps improve water in KMC schools by Staff Sgt. Leslie Keopka 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs The Department of Defense Education Activity Europe recently released the test results for drinking water fountains and sinks in the KMC school facilities. The 86th Aerospace Medicine Squadron Bioenvironmental Engineering office assisted the schools by conducting the required testing on more than 1,100 sinks and water fountains. The results indicated 26 fountains and 304 sinks with the potential to introduce lead into the water. “We sampled every faucet and potential water source in each of the schools to test for lead coming from the faucets,” said Lt. Col. Scott McDonald, 86th AMDS Bioenvironmental Engineering flight commander. “Now that we have isolated the few problem areas, we are going to further investigate the causes and determine the best mitigation actions to keep the amount of lead leaching from the pipes as low as possible. This may include completely removing pipes and fixtures, if necessary. “The sampling we did was the worst case scenario, meaning we intentionally tested in the summer when water is most susceptible to the leaching,” McDonald continued. “We sampled in July so the water had been

stagnant for almost two months with school being out. We flushed the system prior to testing and let the water sit for eight hours overnight. The results we received were from that.” Exposure to lead is primarily a risk for children under 6 years of age and pregnant women. If school-aged children were potentially exposed to lead, medical authorities have determined the exposure would not be significant enough to cause adverse health effects. However, as a precaution, water to the affected fountains has been shut off, and the schools have implemented a flushing program to remove stagnant water from school faucets. Similar testing has been accomplished in housing and child care facilities; these results all met standards. “We are committed to the health and safety of our staff and students,” said Frank Simone, Department of Defense Dependents Schools Kaiserslautern District acting superintendent. “That is why DODDS is working with the experts in the military community to minimize the potential of lead content in our water supply and to determine what options are available for mitigating any potential (issues).” The reassessment that will be conducted over the next several weeks will either validate the summer results or show that daily use of the

water stops the potential for lead to build up. “The follow-on sampling will be finished within the next several weeks, so we can get word out to the parents that all the summer results are reduced and all the mitigation measures we are taking are appropriate,” McDonald said. “We are continuously looking at ways to improve the overall quality of the water in the schools.” For good water-using practices, individuals are encouraged to refrain from using hot water straight from the faucet, boil cold water and let their faucets run for 10 to 15 seconds prior to using the water. Flushing faucets for several seconds prior to filling a cup or dish ensures stagnant water is not used and fresh flowing water will follow. This situation is a low risk to our children, but if there are concerns, parents are encouraged to first speak to their child’s teachers to learn more about their child’s daily water-drinking routine at school and if their classroom’s sink or faucet was identified as having elevated results, McDonald said. For those with health concerns, contact the 86th Medical Group Nurse Helpline at 479-2273. With specific questions regarding the water testing, call the 86th AMDS Bioenvironmental Engineering office at 479-2220.

86th SFS training section instructor. “It doesn’t matter if it’s while deployed, in the states or wherever, individuals have not known how to respond to these situations. Our job here is to teach Airmen how to get out of these situations with their life, if possible.” An important aspect of the class is that it includes hands-on training that allows the students to utilize the skills they have been taught in a simulated, active shooter situation. “As an instructor, I understand that some individuals don’t learn through only PowerPoint,” Abdul’Ahad said. “The practical portion gives a different insight to the whole thing. You’re actually doing the actions to what you’ve learned, so it definitely enhances the intelligence of getting out of a situation like that.” The hands-on training also allows Airmen to receive tips and guidance on specific actions they took during the simulation. “I really liked this class,” said Airman 1st Class Sam Della Torre, a student in the course and 435th AGOW knowledge operations technician. “What I took the most from the practical portion was the comment I received about not standing behind a barricaded door because you could get shot. I actually was holding the table to barricade the door, and it was a good lesson to learn.” Because the course is a requirement, if an Airman is unable to attend the scheduled class due to mission priorities, a one-on-one class is available for them to meet the required training. The 86th SFS, 435th SFS and 569th USFPS, through the EAST class, are helping to keep Airmen resilient and provide them the tools they need to properly react in order to survive an active shooter situation.

Ramstein’s EO office strengthens ADR program by Tech. Sgt. Daylena Ricks 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs When a workplace dispute arises, there are choices when selecting an avenue to resolve the conflict. The 86th Airlift Wing’s Alternative Dispute Resolution program offers mediation for dispute parties. To strengthen that program, 86th AW’s Equal Opportunity office hosted a Basic Air Force Mediation certification course for 23 selected applicants Oct. 5 through 8 on Ramstein. Participants from U.S. Air Forces in Europe and U.S. Air Forces Central Command volunteered and were selected based on their application, essay and a recommendation from their respective supervisor and commander. The 32-hour course covered the foundations of mediation, opening statements, negotiations, the communication and interest-based process, confidentiality, standards of conduct and settlement agreements. “We are so thankful you are here;

Need space?

we need you,” said Norman Jacobson, Air Force ADR program director. “This line of work takes passion. ... You will feel a sense of accomplishment helping parties resolve their disputes and will want to do it at any and every chance given.” The cadre consisted of representatives from the Air Force’s Negotiation Center, located at Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama, and the Alternative Dispute Resolution Center, located in the Pentagon, as well as a labor law attorney from the continental U.S. and an Air Force mediator. On day one, students were introduced to the foundations of mediation and provided opening statements to set the tone and make both parties aware of the procedures and responsibilities they hold in the mediation process. To enforce the lessons learned, students were asked to draft an opening statement for homework. “Opening statements are a lot harder than one would think,” said Staff Sgt. Matthew Paulk, 52nd Logistic Readiness Squadron quality assurance

evaluator. “There is a lot to remember and explain to the dispute parties. I hand wrote my opening statement but still found it difficult to cover all aspects of the mediation session.” The final two days of the course offered students the opportunity to conduct mock opening statements and continue to learn about the mediation process. “I didn’t know it was going to be so hard to stay unbiased during the mediation process, but I found myself choosing sides; it’s a human tendency,” Paulk said. “I can see my struggle with mediation will be trying to stay neutral.” After students completed their opening statements, mock mediation sessions were held. To keep training as realistic as possible, fellow students served as role players and acted out disputes while another student served as the mediator. The Cadre evaluated the overall scenarios following the students’ three days of training. “Overall, I saw some great mediating,” said Bryan Osbourne, 86th AW

EO office and ADR manager, who spoke to the class following the mock mediation sessions. “But remember, it’s a growing process. ... Don’t get discouraged. I have already witnessed growth in you from day one.” Once mock mediations were complete, the class gathered for feedback on how well each session went. The mediator, role players and cadre shared the difficulties and triumphs each experienced and witnessed during the mock mediation sessions. “This course was excellent, very fast paced, and a lot of information was covered,” said Tech. Sgt. Robert Webb, 86th AW Public Affairs office community engagement NCOIC. “I feel confident that I have been given the tools it takes to perform a successful mediation session.” This graduating class increased the Air Force-wide pool of trained mediators to 122.

21st TSC enablers fuel NATO exercise Courtesy of the 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs As the largest NATO training exercise in more than a decade culminated in an international combined arms offensive punctuated by an air assault by 82nd Airborne Division paratroopers, the logisticians, planners, movement controllers, fuel handlers, mechanics and medics of the 21st Theater Sustainment Command worked as feverishly on redeployment as they had on the original deployment of allied forces, weapons systems and gear over the weeks and months preceding the massive mission. Transportation troops and support Soldiers of the 16th Sustainment Brigade and personnel from the 30th Medical Brigade’s 421st Multifunctional Medical Battalion spearheaded the 21st TSC’s exercise efforts throughout Trident Juncture 2015. While aviators, paratroopers, weapons systems and combat troops captured headlines and imaginations across the continent, sustainment personnel conducted essential validating operations alongside allies, building vital relationships and putting interoperability concepts to the toughest of tests. Meanwhile, combat medics and medical support personnel from the 30th Med. Bde. not only provided services but conducted tough, realistic training across national and cultural lines as well as in linguistics. With health, safety and even lives potentially at stake, effective coordination and communication were literally a life and death matter for allied medics. The 515th Transportation Company of the 16th SB’s 39th Transportation Battalion played an energetic organizational role in the reception, staging, onward movement and integration mission.

operational interoperability. “Before the exercise, the Soldiers were unsure about how well the equipment would work and how other nations’ fuel specialists could work on it,” said 1st Lt. Stephanie Hasenfus, a platoon leader with the 515th Trans. “After 40 days of working together though, it is great to see how well they adapted and built trust with our partners in the petroleum unit.” The support Soldiers and medics gained invaluable operational and practical experience during the exercise. They built even more valuable rapport with allies and partners. “It was an incredible experience working under a Spanish command element,” said Sgt. 1st Class Shalayne Tucker of the 1st Inland Cargo Transfer Company. “They took great care of us, and we learned a lot working with them as well as other forces like Italian, French, British and Canadian. “Communication was a barrier we overcame easily because so many Soldiers spoke Spanish and have been able to work as translators,” Tucker continued. “In addition to ensuring all the equipment was received and staged for the exercise, we got the opportunity to learn so much about other cultures and build connections and relationships that will go beyond the end of the exercise.” Precise planning, preparation, coordination and movement, across linguistic and cultural as well as geographic terrain, preceded every suc-

Kaiserslautern American cessful operation. Delivery of appropriate equipment, supplies, vehicles, weapons systems, ammunition, food and fuel — not to mention the troops themselves — to the right place at the right time is a remarkable achievement even for a single large organization. To do so skillfully across a wide array of formations, commands, organizations, services and countries is graduate-level logistics. “Trident Juncture posed enormous logistical challenges for our enablers, and we met every one of them,” said Lt. Col. Donald E. Peters, 21st TSC lead spokesman. “The scale and scope of the forces involved and the varied missions they accomplished demanded robust, flexible support over weeks and months. The integration with allied leaders, logisticians and technicians was so complete as to demand precise synchronization of every significant plan, decision and large-scale movement. “This was among the most powerful demonstrations of international theater logistics capabilities in recent European history,” Peters added. “It’s truly amazing what our allied logisticians can achieve.” Around 36,000 personnel from over 30 nations participated in Trident Juncture 2015. The exercise was conducted primarily in Spain, Portugal and Italy with additional activities in Belgium, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands and Norway as well as maritime operations in the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea.

1st HRSC prepares for deployment

Sgt. Rodney Quintinilla and Sgt. 1st Class Ricardo Alexis of the 1st Human Resources Service Center discuss ongoing training during the unit’s Mission Readiness exercise Nov. 3.

Story and photos by Greg Jones 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs The 1st Human Resources Service Center conducted a Mission Readiness exercise Nov. 2 to 5. The exercise offered training in basic Soldier tasks as well as human resources functions in preparation for a deployment to the Central Command area of operations in March. Roughly 60 strong personnel of the 1st HRSC are deploying for about nine months to provide oversight of HR services throughout Central Command. The activities they will oversee include personnel processing, reception staging and onward movement, casualty assistance and other HR services. Providing current operational

insights for the exercise was the 8th Human Resources Service Center, the unit currently filling the role the 1st HRSC will fill during its deployment. Having the 8th HRSC participate in the exercise helped focused the training on the real-world tasks the unit will have to accomplish in theater. “They’re doing the mission right now, so they know exactly the processes we need to be ready to do,” said exercise Director Lt. Col. Marcos Suarez with the 1st HRSC. “We have the experiences of the people who are doing the job right now, and they bring a lot of realism to the exercise.” The exercise consisted of several days of scenario-based training in which the unit would receive various HR tasks or processes they would have to accomplish. The 8th HRSC helped develop the training events,

known as Master Scenario Events List injects, which call on the unit to perform the functions it will have to perform when it deploys. In addition to this MSEL-based HR functional training, the 1st HRSC also enlisted the help of Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 21st TSC, to provide hands-on training in basic Soldier skills and tasks such as convoy operations, casualty evacuation and movement under fire. “Every one of these HR specialists needs to also be a Soldier,” Suarez said. “Our mission is to oversee HR operations, but as Soldiers we need to be able to defend ourselves so it’s also critical to train those basic Soldier tasks as well.” The combination of functional area training and basic soldiering tasks seemed like the perfect preparation for deployment, according to 1st HRSC Soldier Spec. She-Ra Newell who had her share of both low crawling and paper pushing throughout the exercise. “The low crawling, three to five second rushes and all of that was definitely something I think we needed,” Newell said. “But it also helped to get a chance to do some of those things we don’t normally do.” One of the things Newell found most challenging and learned the most from was the opportunity to perform casualty operations, a func-

tion the 1st HRSC does not normally perform, and one that Newell says she wants to make sure she gets right when she is downrange. “Since the garrison does casualty assistance here in Europe, we don’t get a chance to do that here, but we’re going to do it when we’re in Kuwait,” Newell said. “If a Soldier dies downrange, the casualty processing we do will affect that Soldier’s family members, and that’s something I want to make sure I do right!”

UK Force Troop Command visits partner 21st TSC Story and photo by Greg Jones 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs While it may not be intuitive from their unit designations, the 21st Theater Sustainment Command and the United Kingdom Force Troops Command have a lot in common. So much in fact, they have developed a formal partnership to continually learn from one another and improve the interoperability of their respective nations. As part of this ongoing partnership effort, which began in April, U.K. FTC sent a group of its staff officers to visit the 21st TSC Nov. 5 to discuss ongoing and future partnership efforts and mutual challenges both units face as well as develop a plan of action to continue building on previous successes together. The partnership efforts between the two units actually began with a long-standing partnership between two of their respective subordinate units, the 21st TSC’s 16th Sustainment Brigade and the FTC’s 104th Logistics Regiment. These two units had been conducting interoperability for some time when leaders keyed in on the fact that each unit’s higher headquarters had other functions in common as well, according to 21st TSC G-9 Lt. Col. Steven Hoglund. “The 16th SB and the 104th Log Regiment had

been doing partnership events for a while, and when we looked at the fact that both the FTC and the 21st also oversee other functions like medical, MPS and other sustainment functions, it just made sense to partner at the command level as well,” Hoglund said. The first meeting of this partnership was in April, and regular meetings are expected to occur semiannually. The FTC is one of two allied units the 21st TSC has a formal ongoing partnership with, the other being the German Army’s Logistics Command. At this meeting, the two sides established formal partnership links within subordinate units such as the 30th Medical Brigade and the 7th Mission Support Command. They began to develop plans for how the two sides might benefit from this partnership and what each side might be able to bring to future partnership efforts. In times of scarce resources, partnerships like this enable each side to accomplish things that it might otherwise not be capable of doing alone and helps bring greater efficiency to multinational efforts, according to the U.K. FTC’s Chief of Staff Col. Karl Hickman. “If we’re doing a joint operation, it doesn’t make sense for every country to bring their own fuelers. We figure out who does the best fueling, and let them do

the fueling for everyone at the exercise,” Hickman said. “There simply aren’t enough resources for us each to do everything on our own; we’ve got to work together.” Future meetings of the two partner units will bring further detail to the partnerships and plans established during this visit. “It’s been a good azimuth check, and now I think we’ve got our way forward,” Hickman said.

773rd Civil Support Team welcomes new leadership Story and photo by Staff Sgt. Rick Scavetta 7th Mission Support Command HALLE, Belgium — Soldiers from the 773rd Civil Support Team bid farewell to Lt. Col. Sandy Sadler and welcomed their new commander, Lt. Col. U. L. Armstrong, during an Oct. 30 change of command ceremony held at a fire station near Brussels, Belgium. Sadler passed the unit guidon to Col. Miguel Castellanos, commander of the 361st Civil Affairs Brigade, who then turned to Armstrong and spoke softly as he passed the guidon, signifying the change of command. For Sadler, it was a day for memories, he said. “Today, I remember who I am behind the insignia. I’m reminded that above all, I’m just a Soldier,” Sadler said. “In my career I’ve had many highlights and memorable moments. My command here has been the highlight of my career. It will be a time that I will never forget.” Rows of Belgian firefighters from Hulpverleningszone Vlaams-Brabant West stood in formation beside the U.S. Army Reserve Soldiers in dress uniforms. A color guard from the 7th Mission Support Command presented the U.S. and Belgian flags and the 7th MSC and 361st colors. The 773rd CST is also now a part of the 361st. As Sadler looked out toward the rows of U.S. Soldiers standing in formation beside Belgian firefighters, he spoke of the sense of pride and accomplishment he felt. He departed with words for the Soldiers of the team. “It’s been the busiest and toughest of times,” Sadler told the troops. “We have never shied away from our duty. We have met our responsibilities with enthusiasm and professionalism. I could not have asked for more.” Under Sadler, the team undertook dozens of missions that exemplified the “Strong Europe” priorities set forth by U.S. Army Europe, including working with and building capacity between allies and

partners. The team completed assignments in Georgia, Moldova, Kosovo, Slovenia, Poland and Croatia. Soldiers also developed new guidelines for their missions, employed equipment upgrades and successfully underwent U.S. Army North validation. “Lt. Col. Sadler and his team have had their hands full during his time in command,” said Brig. Gen. Arlan DeBlieck, the 7th MSC commander. During the days prior to command, both Sadler and Armstrong joined the team for Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Week 2015, an annual event held with firefighters in Belgium. Due to their initiative, NATO has requested that the 7th MSC lead the NATO CBRN Center of Excellence, DeBlieck said. Soldiers presented flowers to Armstrong’s wife, Audra, and small gifts for their daughter, Meaghen, and sons, Caleb and Colin. In remarks to the Belgians, Armstrong said the combined training and camaraderie shared was a memorable and valuable experience. “I look forward to continu-

ing and possibly expanding our future training opportunities,” Armstrong said. To the 773rd Soldiers, Armstrong said their important role, as the only U.S. Army Reserve civil support

team that does an overseas mission every day, will continue to test their abilities. “Make no mistake, we’ve been given the mission to be ready to respond on what might be very bad for our country or

our partners and allies here in Europe,” Armstrong said, citing the risks associated with the CBRN hazards they train to face. “In this risky environment, we are the tip of the spear.”

Army Reserve partners with Belgian firefighters Story and photo by Staff Sgt. Rick Scavetta 7th Mission Support Command HALLE, Belgium — Clutching a high-tech sensor with thick rubbery gloves, Sgt. Tameka Dubose peered through her oxygen mask and fogging plastic hood checking for a suspicious substance inside a dilapidated building. Water leaks dripped from overhead pipes. Her chunky rubber boots crunched on broken glass and debris as she walked to fellow 773rd Civil Support Team Soldiers to discuss her findings. “We have to adjust for not being able to see well or to grip,” Dubose said. “We do this all the time, so you get used to it.” A 7th Mission Support Command unit, the 773rd CST is made up of Soldiers who survey potential chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear hazards. They spent the last week of October in the suburbs of Brussels, Belgium, taking part in CBRN Week, a training event where the team honed their ability to employ highly sensitive and technical equipment to identify toxins and strengthened a long-standing partnership with Belgian firefighters. For the past five years, 773rd CST Soldiers have worked with Belgian first responders. In the past, the Americans partnered with the Zaventem station. Since last year, Belgian fire stations underwent an organizational realignment into a regional force. This year, roughly 50 Belgian firefighters from Hulpverleningszone VlaamsBrabant West took part. Meanwhile, the 773rd underwent a 70 percent personnel turnover. Of the 19 Soldiers taking part, only four had trained previously with the Belgians. “It’s a new location, and for many of us, it was the first time together,” said Capt. McVay Chambers, who serves as the 773rd’s operations officer. “But we have had a good working relationship.” After getting acquainted and setting up living quarters in the

fire station, the U.S. Soldiers explained their sampling and decontamination procedures. Then, the Belgians did likewise, Chambers said. “It was one of those things; we looked at how each other does business, then we integrated and came to a common ground,” Chambers said. “So, if we do come out to respond together, we’re talking the same language, doing the same thing.” While training filled their days during the weeklong exercise, the U.S. troops did, however, get to sample Belgian chocolate. A local producer in Halle stayed open late just for them so they could stop by one evening after training. In Relegem, a suburb five miles northwest of Brussels, is Zellick Kaserne. Once home to Belgium’s balloon reconnaissance corps, Zellik is now PIVO, a Belgian training center for police, firefighters and paramedics. Inside an old rundown building their planners staged the scene of mayhem and potential hazards for the culminating event. Broken glass and debris covered the floors. A simulated casualty had fallen amid the rubble. Streams of water flowed from busted pipes. In the scenario though, it may not have been water. That’s what the survey teams were sent in to determine. First the Beglians went in followed by the U.S. Soldiers, as backing up first responders is their standard procedure. Under colorful plastic suits, team members could hear their own breath as they used oxygen tanks that were similar to what a scuba diver uses. They carried sensors to determine toxins and collected photos for leaders outside to see what had happened. Working together takes patience and often humility. When hazardous materials could have been a threat to both teams, communication and coordination were key to safely removing what would, in a real situation, be contaminated. Outside at the decontamination station, a Belgian firefighter asked Sgt. 1st Class Terrence Houser, an operations NCO with the 21st Theater

Soldiers from the 773rd Civil Support Team employ sophisticated gear to determine contaminants during a hazardous material scenario at Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Week 2015.

Sustainment Command, a question in accented English, his voice muffled behind his thick plastic oxygen mask. Houser couldn’t quite hear and motioned that he didn’t understand. Turned-up hand gestures and head shaking followed. “Where … is the zipper on the suit?” Houser pointed to his back. They solved the problem. Belgian 1st Lt. Christopher Gueders of the 14th CBRN Company, 4th Battalion, took part in the training and observed the final exercise. Gueders previously trained with Americans and other NATO forces in Canada during Exercise Precise Response, geared toward interoperability in CBRN responses, he said. “It’s important to have good coordination and know how each other’s teams work,”

Gueders said. Belgian CBRN troops train for hazardous responses in foreign countries but must also know how to augment local first responders, he said. “This helped me get more familiar with how firefighters are approaching these kinds of incidents,” Gueders said. “It’s also very interesting to see the U.S. sampling team. They have almost the same procedures as we do. It’s the same job.” The 773rd is one of the busiest Reserve units in Europe. Recently in the Ukraine, the team took part in exercises with hazmat teams from Hungary and Poland. Training in Spain, the 773rd CST partnered with Spanish and French army CBRN units as a combined sampling team during site assessments. Closer to their home sta-

tion, Daenner Kaserne at U.S. Army Garrison RheinlandPfalz in Kaiserslautern, the 773rd supported exercises such as Warrior Response to strengthen bonds with garrison first responders that are needed in real emergencies. They also supported community outreach, explaining their mission during Rheinland-Pfalz Tag, a local event attended by thousands of local people. Essentially, the team exemplifies why forward-posted Army Reserve units are relevant in Europe, said Brig. Gen. Arlan DeBlieck, commander of the 7th MSC, who visited the 773rd CST in Belgium. “There is no doubt that the strength of the U.S. Army is in the dedicated professionals who comprise the 773rd Civil Support Team,” DeBlieck said.

How to take caution when buying a puppy Courtesy of the 86th Mission Support Group Christmas is approaching, and some people might think a puppy is a nice Christmas present. Acquiring a new puppy should be a joyous event. However, it is important for buyers to be aware of unscrupulous individuals who sell puppies. Regrettably, some of these puppies become sick or even die shortly after their purchase, resulting in large veterinary bills and heartbroken buyers. Here are a few helpful hints to increase the likelihood of making the right choice when buying a puppy: •  Purchase  your  puppy  from a local source. Make sure you meet with the seller and write down the seller’s name, full address and phone number. Ask the seller for a list of references that includes previous buyers and other breeders. •  Visit  the  puppy  two  or  three times before making the purchase. This will allow you to check out the facility more than once and will give you a better understanding of the animal’s actual temperament and health. •  Insist  on  seeing  the  mother and also inspect her. •  Examine  both  the  puppy’s and the mother’s vaccination  records.  If  the  record  is in a foreign language, make sure to ask a local veterinarian’s office what the vaccinations cover. Also, take notes

of the vaccination dates and the age of the animal when it was vaccinated, as this will help  the  vet’s  office  verify  that the animals are on an adequate vaccination schedule. •  Inspect  the  actual  pedigree.  Pedigrees  should  have  both  the  Verband  fuer  Hundewesen,  or  VDH,  and

The class has to prove if the equation is true or false by showing how they solved the equations on both sides of the equal sign.

LEMS learns units of measurement First graders in Melinda Steven’s classroom at Landstuhl Elementary Middle School are learning to measure using units of measurement. Did you know a fresh water crocodile in Australia is 20-feet long? That equals 10 first-grade kids, and they prove it.

Ramstein student qualifies for world championship Courtesy of Heather Goodwin

Luke Pelletier, fourth-grade student at Ramstein Intermediate School, performs at the prestigious All Ireland Dancing Championships in Killarney, Ireland. He placed fifth overall in his age group, earning a qualifier medal for the world championship next spring in Glasgow, Scotland.

It isn’t often that the child of a military member is able to spend enough time in one place to achieve world-class status in a sport. It’s even more amazing when the love for that sport was discovered and fostered in a Child Youth and School Services program. Luke Pelletier, Irish dancer and a student at Ramstein Intermediate School, proved that it is possible Oct. 30 at the All Ireland Dancing Championships in Killarney, Ireland. The AllIrelands is the oldest and one of the most prestigious Irish dance competitions, comparable to the

golf Masters Tournament or Wimbledon tennis championships. While many of Luke’s fourth-grade peers were preparing for Halloween, he put on a dance costume and took the stage. Each dancer is guaranteed to dance a traditional set dance, a heavy shoe dance and a soft shoe dance, but should they place high enough in each round, they can be recalled to the stage to dance again up to three additional times. Not only was Luke recalled to the stage all three times, he placed fifth overall and qualified for the world championship, which will be held in Glasgow, Scotland, in the spring. Luke discovered Irish

dancing while attending a Ramstein youth services spring recital four years ago where he saw Mary Sweeney’s Irish dancers perform in the program. He told his mother that was the kind of dancing he wanted to do and has been dancing with Sweeney, both at youth services and her Landstuhl studio, ever since. Luke is not the only military child to find success in Irish dancing with Sweeney. A total of 15 children who take classes with her through the Ramstein Youth Center will travel to Milan, Italy, in late November to compete in the European championships.

What does fitness really mean? by Marissa Pierce, CFT Contributing writer When some people hear the word “fitness” various images may come to mind, such as a gym, a health food store or maybe even calorie counting. The question is, what does fitness really entail? When we think about fitness, most of the time we think about the physical aspect. When we think about the physical aspect, many of us might only think about being active or working out. There is so much more to it than that. Fitness encompasses your entire body and soul. There is a trifecta of physical, mental and spiritual elements. Being healthy means that you take each one of these into consideration and examine them up close on a regular basis. Let’s talk about the spiritual component first. You may say, “I don’t go to church.” Maybe you don’t feel like a spiritual person, and that’s perfectly ok. That’s not exactly what this part of your health encompasses. Your

spiritual health consists of your belief system and your values. These are the things that make you feel at peace with yourself and others. When you have a clear view of what your values are, and you hold yourself to them, you will more than likely feel calmer and happier. Mental health covers a very broad spectrum. Stress is very detrimental to our bodies but especially to our minds. It is easy to fall into negative thinking and a depressed state when we have a lot going on in life. Events in life may not always go according to plan, but we all go through times of good and bad, and it is important to keep a positive outlook. There are many different ways to combat stress, it just depends on what you like to do and what works for you. Perhaps take some time to meditate or get a massage. Even spending some quality time with friends to get your mind off current situations can help tremendously. Lastly, physical health is threefold within itself and includes activity, nutrition and sleep. Each of these work together, and they are equally impor-

tant to your overall health. Balance is the most important thing to remember in order to be as healthy as possible. If you are constantly stressed then that perfect lunch you packed and the gym session you had after work won’t be nearly as effective in maintaining your healthy weight. We spend so much time in our everyday lives trying to reach our goals and challenge ourselves. Staying healthy is vital to being able to do all the things we dream about in life. Sadly, a lot of the time our health gets put on the back burner when other pressing matters come into play. If we want to be as strong and healthy as we are now 10 or even and 20 years down the road, it is essential that we take a little extra time for ourselves now. Make conscious, healthier choices, and give yourself small challenges. Decide that you will go to bed an hour earlier one night this week. Eat an apple instead of a candy bar. Evaluate yourself and find your weak points, and then take small steps to better yourself. (Marissa Pierce is a certified fitness trainer and KA contributing writer.)

The 33 (PG-13)

Courtesy of IMDB.com

In 2010, the eyes of the world turned to Chile where 33 miners had been buried alive by the catastrophic explosion and collapse of a 100-year-old gold and copper mine. Over the next 69 days, an international team worked night and day in a desperate attempt to rescue the trapped men as their families and friends, as well as millions of people globally, waited and watched anxiously for any sign of hope. But 200 stories beneath the surface, in the suffocating heat and with tensions rising, provisions and time were quickly running out. A story of resilience, personal transformation and triumph of the human spirit, the film takes us to the Earth’s dark-

est depths, revealing the psyches of the men trapped in the mine, and depicting the courage of both the miners and their families who refused to give up. Based on the gripping true story of survival and filmed with the cooperation of the miners, their families and their rescuers —“The 33” reveals the never-before-seen actual events that unfolded above and below ground, which became nothing less than a worldwide phenomenon. Starring Antonio Banderas and Juliette Binoche Bridge of Spies (PG-13) A dramatic thriller set against the backdrop of a series of historic events, “Bridge of Spies” tells the story of James Donovan, a Brooklyn lawyer who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near impossible task to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot. This story inspired by true events captures the essence of a man who risked everything and vividly brings his personal journey to life.
