Airpower by Lt. Col. Joshua Olson 37th Airlift Squadron commander Every military service is confusing to outsiders, but none as much as the Air Force. To outsiders, the Air Force appears entrenched in a self- centered view of w ar, envisioning airpow er as king w ith a never ending lust for high- end aircraft and technological systems. But w ithin the service there is an identity crisis as Airmen struggle to reconcile their role in current and future contingencies w ith long- standing traditional view s of airpow er.


Who are we.

The Air Force w as made as an independent service to focus on dominating the third dimension of w ar — air. For the past 65 years, the Air Force has achieved this goal; in fact, it has controlled the skies for so long that w e as a country have trouble believing our air supremacy could ever be challenged. Even so, the use of airpow er in today’s irregular w ars and conflicts is still very misunderstood across the services. Historically, w ar theorists believed that airpow er supplied direct combat effects to the battleground. Today, irregular w ar theorists maintain that airpow er merely supplies combat support. Never before has the Air Force’s greatest contribution of air supremacy been w ritten off as merely support. Consider this: The Army’s counter insurgency field manual FM - 4 relegates airpow er’s contribution to simply an annex. Surely the vital contributions of the third

dimension via airborne intelligence, w orldw ide communications and control, intratheater airlift, and remotely piloted aircraft deserve to be recognized as more than an annex — possibly even an integral component of contingency operations?

Fly, fight, win.

As the implementation of airpow er continues to shift to meet the needs of the country, Airmen continue to que stion their identity and the culture of w hat made us an independent service in the first place. The fact is the military needs an independent air service that is dedicated to organizing, training and eq uipping leaders w ho can bring airpow er’s unique combat power to any conflict. The bottom line is that airpow er brings combat effects to the fight. From bombers and fighters in World War II and K orea to airlift and remotely piloted aircraft in operations Enduring Freedom and Odyssey Daw n, the common thread throughout the history of combat airpow er is that it is not solely found in a single flying weapon system. Combat airpow er is found in the Airmen w ho employ it.

Airpower is Airmen.

Despite much of the Department of Defense’s focus being placed in the ENT M area of responsibility for more than 10 years, combat airpow er continues to be employed in contingencies around the globe. Global combat airpow er is not j ust the snake eaters of the 4 5th ir round perations Wing calling in strikes and open-

ing contested airfields, nor is it the zipper suited sun gods pointy nosed or knuckle draggers flying their high-powered machines. Combat airpow er is Senior Airman K aylen Horace, 86th Logistics Readiness Sq uadron. Imagine show ing up at amstein as a wife 5 weeks pregnant. During your base in-processing battle, you find out that your household goods are categorized as lost in the TM system. n top of that, your husband’s unit is minimally manned and must send him in harm’s w ay w ithin days of arriving. Luckily, after days of battling the system, Horace stepped up on her ow n time and stayed late hours to take care of this family she didn’t even know. With orace attacking the mission at Ramstein, another Airman could stay focused on his mission air- dropping lifesaving supplies. That is combat airpow er. Combat airpow er is Staff Sgt. April Song, 86th omptroller S uadron. Many people do not realize the amount of operations currently happening throughout Africa and Europe. As many U.S. Air Forces in Europe Airmen continue to transit Africa, these operations could never be done w ithout the uiet, selfless dedication of Airmen like Song. It is Song w hose late hours and countless w eekends navigating the many financial pitfalls and funding problems that helped enable critical lifesaving missions get to tiny austere airfields in frica. Song is combat airpow er. Combat airpow er is Staff

w elve lieutenants and one captain participated in the K MC Company Grade Officers’ ouncil first term officers’ course Nov. 8 on Ramstein. The daylong orientation integrated the M ’s newest officers into the operational Air Force, allow ing veteran CGOs to mentor their peers and new CGOs an opportunity to ask que stions and raise concerns. “The aim of this event is to provide new first-term officers with practical information not necessarily taught at base in- processing, their commissioning source or sponsorship,” said Capt. Ada Boettcher, 86th Logistics Readiness Squa dron fuels flight commander and FT coordinator. “It provides an informal forum for CGOs to pass on local- area know ledge, mission know ledge, as w ell as their personal ‘ lessons learned’ to the new officers. Not only will new s gain great information, but they w ill also meet and interact w ith people from all over the K MC.” CGOC members, senior enlisted personnel and civilians helped to coordinate the course, w hich covered a w ide variety of topics.

The course aided them in understanding the role of the base. “I enj oyed learning about the ‘ big picture’ here and about all the different missions on base,” said 2nd Lt. Emily Angell, 86th Comptroller S uadron financial services assistant flight commander. The FTOC participants also had the opportunity to netw ork and learn about career fields other than their ow n. “I w as fascinated to learn about the legal aspect and courts martial processes,” said Capt. Carmen Galea, 86th Dental Squa dron dentist. “Our medical field is isolated sometimes, so it w as nice to get out and meet other people around base.” As the second annual FTOC organized by the CGOC, improvements w ere made to the course to ensure the new lieutenants received critical guidance. “We changed a few things from last year,” said 1st Lt. Bonnie Lange, 721st Aerial Port Squa dron section commander. As an FTOC participant last year, she w as eager to coordinate the topics of discussion and learn-

ing points this year. “We w anted to ensure that this year w e focused on giving the FTOC class exposure to new locations and most importantly, exposure to fellow CGOs.” One change included ensuring FTOC participants attended a CGOC general council meeting during their course. They j oined more than 40 other CGOs from the K MC at the general CGOC monthly meeting w here Lt. Gen. Noel T. Jones, U.S. Air Forces in Europe vice commander, w as the guest speaker. Jones discussed professional military education, continuous leadership development and the future of USAFE and the Air Force, and also provided time to answ er que stions. The course ended at the Belgian Support nit, where the first term officers met w ith a captain’s panel to pass on advice and guidance. “We’re here to help,” said Capt. A.J. Brilla, 86th Logistics Readiness S uadron operations officer, who briefed at the captain’s panel. “Whatever you need, w e’ll help you to find it, help you to learn it we’re here for you.” “The course w as very helpful,” Angell said. “There are things you can figure out on your own, but why not take the lessons learned from our fellow CGOs? ” For more information on CGOC events, email Capt.

Hey, Shirt! Got a minute? Is your wallet ready for the holidays? by Airman 1st Class Holly Cook 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Bringing one’s abilities, know ledge and talents to help irmen is what most first sergeants would say is their primary duty — being someone for Airmen to look up to and emulate is a bonus. “I get the opportunity to be in a position w here I have to be an example for my irmen, said Senior Master Sgt. harles Doan, 6th Medical roup first sergeant. like being that example because know I’m a good one.” For most irmen, having an example to lean on during times of need is a must. For the first sergeants of the M , being that example is what they do every day. “K now ing that I have helped even j ust one person is the best feeling in the w orld,” Doan said. Every first sergeant has multiple ways they help K MC Airmen every day. s first sergeants we have our hands in almost everything going on ( around) base,” Doan said. We have our weekly first sergeants meetings and w e go and speak at the First Term Airman Center, irman eadership School, Noncommissioned fficer Academy, and many other maj or events around the K MC area.” The First Sergeant Association also helps out families in need every year during the holidays. Each year we donate at least 45,000 for our Holiday Cheer Program for military families in need during the holidays,” Doan said. “This money w ill help these families buy food and other necessities during the Thanksgiving and Christmas months.” Even though first sergeants help their irmen so much, sometimes they need help themselves. f one of my irmen needs something fixed or is in a rough spot, they come my w ay,” Doan said. “Sometimes they come to me w ith problems that I’ve never dealt w ith before. That’s w hen I turn to my fellow first sergeants. tap into their experience and use it to help my Airmen.” Whether it’s speaking to new Airmen at FTAC or collecting donations during the holidays first sergeants are alw ays there to help w hen needed, and at the end of the day it is about taking care of Airmen. “My Airmen are humans and w ear the Air Force uniform j ust like me so I treat them w ith the dignity and respect that they deserve,” Doan said. “I don’t need a big aw ard to know that I’m doing w ell. All I need is to see my Airmen happy.”

Today, ussell is using that experience to help other transitioning Soldiers prepare for life as civilians by helping them get ready for the ob market. At the same time, his w ork is therapy for him as well. Russell is an instructor for the Wounded Warrior Proj ect’s Transition Training Academy in Baumholder, ermany. Twice a week, WTB-E Soldiers travel from posts around ermany — some driving as many as three hours — to attend his introduction to computer repair course. ll hope to receive their ompTia certification, something that opens employment doors in the information technology industry. The course, which started ct. 1, will run eight weeks before the 1 students get a three- w eek break to study for their certification test. They then return for another eight w eeks of training on practical applications that they’ll need to work in the T field, Russell said. ll the students had to first complete the TT ’s introduction to com-

puter technology course before attending the computer repair course. Russell said most of the students w ere surprised when he came in the first day as the course instructor since he’d been one of their fellow students in the first course. “The last time I w as here w as as a student in the Warrior Transition nit, ussell said. The first day of class, all the guys w ere looking around and asking w here the instructor was because went to the first course w ith these guys.” While still a Soldier in the WTB-E, Russell w as w orking on his degree in cyber security and pulling on-the- ob training with the .S. rmy Europe T help desk. e was able to pass the test for his ompTia certification and, after medically retiring in ermany, was offered the instructor’s position. e said, at first, though, he didn’t think the j ob w as right for him. had ust gotten the certification and ( WWP) asked if I’d like to w ork w ith the w ounded w arriors,” ussell said. t first didn’t want to w ork w ith them. I had a lot of anxiety issues about speaking to groups of people because of my TSD, but was working with my therapist to w ork out those issues, to get me out of my shell.” Eventually he decided to accept the j ob offer, looking at it as a challenge. “It forces me to get in front of the class,” Russell said. “It allow s me to take small steps and work in a room full of guys can relate to. t’s therapy for me.” is students run the gamut in expe-

This is a fantastic opportunity, said Maj .

His goal is the same as w hen he w as active duty. “My goal is to have these guys leave here know ing more than I do, with a better plan than had, and go out and accomplish more than did, Russell said. “A good leader alw ays w ants his Soldiers to be better than they are.” He added that he gets as much out of the experience as his students do. “Here, I am teaching IT classes, still working with Soldiers and helping them, he said. still feel like part of the team — I’m still serving.”

During the clinic, the children learned some basics in passing, dribbling and shooting as they rotated through different stations w ith the players. “It’s w hat you play for; you play for these kinds of opportunities,” said Russell Byrd, a MSU Spartan guard. “On the court you w ant to play for championships, but you w ant to also teach people and invest in kids. Y ou know , hopefully teach the next generation of young kids how to play.” Not only did the players and coaches share some fundamentals but they also spent some qua lity time w ith the K MC youth. “The kids came out w ith enthusiasm,” said UConn head coach K evin Ollie. “They played hard, they dribbled, they passed, they shot, all of the fundamentals that w e try to teach our guys on a day- today basis.” After the lesson, the players from both teams autographed T- shirts for the children.

hat do 15 Ramstein High School students have in common w ith opera singer Eric Mills, super model Cindy Craw ford, Nobel Prize physicist Dr. Arno Penzias and astronaut Judith Resnick? They have all recently been inducted into the National Honor Society. A feather in the cap of deserving high school students around the country is to be recognized in the

society. While a grade point average of 3.5 is a necessary requi rement of acceptance into the society, NHS is more than j ust an honor roll. According to the society’s constitution, four main principles steer the NHS: “To create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in the students of secondary schools.” “We know that all applying stuSee NHS, next page

NHS, from Page 16 dents have the scholarship, but w e also put a strong emphasis on w hether or not they excel in all kinds of community activities, especially those that serve the military public,” said sponsor Betty Slusny. Before students can become an associate of the 100- plus member society at RHS, they must complete a rigorous application packet. In addition to documenting that they have maintained a 3.5 grade point average and have sustained a solid attendance record, students must also w rite an essay describing how they have show n to be outstanding in scholarship, service, leadership and character. Furthermore, teachers and other community members are asked to provide recommendations on each student before acceptance into the NHS. “The rigorous application packet is designed to uphold the high status of NHS at Ramstein High School,” Slusny said. Sophomore Lauren Codina w ent through the tough application process because she felt it gave her many opportunities and w as a good chance to help out her community, she said. One of the missions of the RHS National Honor Society is to create a sense of responsibility and respect among its members. To help promote this goal, students w ork w ith the Wounded Warrior Program, tutor their fellow peers and volunteer at many school activities and w ithin the community throughout the year. How ever, one of the biggest goals each year is to raise money to donate to the Chaplain’s Closet, w hich provides daily essentials such as clothing, toiletries and even shoes to Soldiers w ho have returned from deployment and combat w ith nothing but their uniforms on their backs. One w ay NHS members raise money is to bag at the commissary. Last year, the group w as able to raise $1,35 0 w orth of supplies to give to the Chaplain’s Closet and $2 ,800 to give to other school clubs and organizations at RHS. The society’s involvement w ith and contributions to the Chaplain’s Closet “give students a chance to serve w here w e normally w ouldn’t,” said j unior Giuliana Gillespie. An induction ceremony and banque t takes place tw ice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring. In the fall, only upperclassmen may apply, but in the spring, sophomores may also j oin the society. Slusny said the banque t is a “super special event and a w onderful buffet dinner that supersedes all expectations.” The previously inducted members each contribute a homemade dish of their choice for the buffet and the officers help set up the great hall for the event. “My favorite part about the induction ceremony is w here w e all get to shake hands and honor the students w ho do w ell in school,” said senior Jessica Z augg. While all these students may not go on to fame and fortune, it is certain they are young people w ho believe in the value of serving others and are recognized by the RHS community as outstanding high school students. Congratulations to the fall RHS inductees: Marie Aponte, Rachel Baine, Stew art Coard, Lauren Codina, Shannon Guffey, Troy Guffey, Cameron Hansen, Devin McGeehan, Alexandra Meints, Lucas Mireles, K evin Parvizi, Everett Plocek, Carrie Pratt, Aaren Robinson and Matthew Sharpy.

Roller Girls of the Apocalypse: skating with a vengeance Story and photo by Airman 1st Class Hailey Haux 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs The words, Bridge Bridge Bridge rang in their ears as the bout began. They immediately got into formation and braced themselves. The opposing j ammer tried to sneak through the pack of girls w ho w ere dead set on keeping her out. Elbow s flew, girls were shoved and penalties w ere called. The smell of burned rubber stung their noses as the w histle blew to stop the j am. The oller irls of the pocalypse roller derby team, originally the -Town Derby irls, is a non-profit sports club for anyone looking for a little recreation. There are five skaters on the track from each team — four blockers and one j ammer,” said Michelle Richart. “The j ammer is the one w ith a star on her helmet.” nce the whistle blows, the ammers try to make their w ay through the blockers w ithout receiving a penalty. The first one through is declared the lead j ammer. n each pass through the pack, the j ammer scores points for each blocker from the opposing team she passes,” said Tamsyn Medina, one of the founders of the original team. j am lasts tw o minutes unless called off by the lead ammer. bout consists of tw o 30 minute halves.” But it can get loud with all the yell-

ing. That’s how the team communicates “Communication is crucial in roller derby,” Richart said. “Everything happens extremely fast and each skater has to be able to communicate w ith their teammates. Everyone needs to be able to rely and depend on each other.” Roller derby is open for everyone. Volunteering opportunities are also available. “It’s great being on the team, it is a great w ay to get the stress out,” said irman 1st lass Sharon ahl, 6th Logistics Readiness Squa dron fuels distribution operator. Not only is it a great stress reliever, roller derby has also been grow ing in popularity in Europe and the U.S., and it’s exciting to get involved, Richart said. “Getting into roller derby in Europe in these early stages allow s an immense opportunity to influence the direction of the sport,” Richart said. “We have skaters from the United States, Germany, Canada, the United K ingdom and France.” The oller irls of the pocalypse play teams from all over Europe including ermany, Belgium, Netherlands and France. nyone over 1 can participate in the league as long as they are in the local commuting area. Getting started can be expensive, as all the gear needs to be purchased, plus there is a monthly fee of €20. In order to skate, members need qua d- speed skates, a helmet, mouth guard, knee pads, elbow pads and w rist guards.

Members of the Roller Girls of the Apocalypse roller derby team practice their skating form during a practice session Nov. 8 in Kaiserslautern.

“Roller derby is a bigger commitment than most realize,” Richart said. ur fresh meat,’ rookie skaters, must go through the rookie training sessions prior to actually j oining the team.” Roller derby is a complicated sport, K ahl said. Having the “fresh meat” sessions really helped. They break the sport dow n and make it more understandable. Being on the roller derby team helps w ith stress relief but most of all it helps w ith my physical training,” K ahl said. Practice for the Roller Girls of the pocalypse is two hours a day, three times a w eek. “I have had the chance to meet other people in the ir Force who are on the team. It creates a sense of camaraderie and it’s a great w ay to

netw ork,” K ahl said. Not only is roller derby a great way to get any aggression out, but it’s a great w ay to meet new people, Richart said. Skaters come from all backgrounds and w alks of life and some of my best friends are fellow skaters. “Whether I feel happy, sad, overw helmed or tired,” Richart said. “I alw ays leave derby practice feeling better than w hen I arrived.” The next “fresh meat” rookie training program is scheduled to begin March 2 for inexperienced skaters and lasts three months.

Get smart about antibiotics by Lisa Young U.S. Army Public Health Command CH I LD: I don’t feel so good. Achoo! My nose is so stuffy and my throat hurts. PARENT 1: Y ou know how frustrating it is trying to help your kids w hen they’re sick? A visit to the doctor’s office can be a challenge. So, want to get my child on some antibiotics. NU RSE: s a parent, you want to help make your child feel better as fast as possible. t’s tempting to think that antibiotics are the answer when your child is sick. owever, a lot of illnesses can be caused by viruses, and antibiotics don’t work on viruses. PARENT 2: I’m a doctor and the mother of tw o kids, so ’ve seen my share of waiting rooms. e’s right. f antibiotics are used too often for things they can’t treat, like colds, flu or other viral infections, they can stop working effectively against bacteria w hen you really need them. NU RSE: ntibiotics are not always the answer. Let’s see w hat else w e can do. ntibiotic resistance is a worldwide public health

problem. esistance occurs when bacteria can no longer be killed by a previously effective antibiotic and the bacteria continue to grow. ccording to the lliance for the rudent se of ntibiotics, if resistance to treatment continues to spread, our globally connected world may find itself back in the dark ages of medicine — before today’s miracle drugs existed. This misuse and overuse of antibiotics is believed to be the cause of antibiotic resistance among bacteria. The .S. enters for Disease ontrol and Prevention estimated that more than 50 percent of antibiotics are unnecessarily prescribed for upper respiratory infections like cough and cold illness, most of which are caused by viruses. This is one of the most common causes of improper use and misuse of antibiotic prescriptions. n addition, many people don’t complete the full dosage of the antibiotic because they feel better or want to save some for the next time they are ill. This practice leaves some bacteria alive and contributes to the bacteria’s future resistance to antibiotic treatment. imited access to medical care and effective treatments may also lead to self-medication misuse, such as sharing or using leftover antibiotics. The merican ollege of hysicians states that both physicians and patients have a role to play in decreasing the misuse of antibiotics. hysicians

should only prescribe antibiotics when tests indicate that a bacterial infection is present. s a patient you can prevent antibiotic resistance by doing the follow ing: Not re uesting antibiotics from your doctor or taking antibiotics for a viral infection like a cold or the flu. Not sharing prescriptions or using a prescription that w as not w ritten for you. Taking all prescribed doses of the antibiotic. Taking the antibiotics exactly as the doctor directs. Don’t skip any doses. eturning for care if symptoms persist. Be smart when using antibiotics and keep in mind that antibiotics kill bacteria, not viruses. ntibiotics w ill not keep other people from catching the infection. Taking antibiotics for a viral infection not only wastes time and money but contributes to increased antibiotic resistance. For the health of future generations, do your part to improve appropriate antibiotic use. To highlight the importance of using antibiotics wisely, the D established November 1 to Sunday as et Smart bout ntibiotics Week. For more information on the appropriate use of antibiotics and antibiotic resistance, visit the D online at w w w getsmart/ healthcare/ index. html.

The Odd Life of Timothy Green (PG) — “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” is an inspiring, magical story about a happily married couple, Cindy and Jim Green, who can’t wait to start a family but can only dream about what their child would be like. When young Timothy shows up on their doorstep one stormy night, Cindy and Jim — and their small town of Stanleyville — learn that sometimes the unexpected can bring some of life’s greatest gifts. Starring Jennifer Garner and Ron Livingston.
