Realistic exercise keeps Airmen, host nation on their toes Story and photos by Airman 1st Class Trevor Rhynes 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


embers of Team Ramstein, along with their Army and host nation counterparts participated in a major accident response exercise Oct. 27 on Rhine Ordnance Barracks. The exercise tested various units’ ability to respond to a major accident and their aptitude to work together to handle assorted challenges that may arise during a crisis response. “The main objective was to make this exercise as realistic as possible,” said Capt. Jesse K laetsch, lead inspector for this exercise. “We have some ‘ body parts’ scattered around the scene just to give the crash team a glimpse as to what they’d see if they were on a real crash site. We wanted to take this step-by-step to show participants how this kind of mishap would go, so everyone involved would have a good idea of what the real-world See EXERCISE, Page 3

Base appearance — Pick it up! by Lt. Col. Tiffany Warnke 786th Civil Engineer Squadron commander Have you ever driven down a highway and thought to yourself, “Boy, there’s a lot of trash in this area, this must be a bad part of town where no one cares? ” Have you ever walked up to a building and seen debris in the corners of the parking lot or in the mulch beds at the entrance? Have you ever driven onto a compound and seen newspaper littering the fence line? It probably made you think, “This place should look better” or “who’s not doing their job? ” More importantly, how did it make you feel? I would expect that it made you wrinkle your nose and feel disappointed; maybe even disgusted. Many research studies show the importance a clean, organized and well-maintained work environment has on an organization’s morale and productivity. These studies

describe how workplace environments directly in uence employee motivation and subsequent performance. In today’s world, organizations are challenged to create work environments where people enjoy what they do, where they work, and are proud of it. For the military, the work environment oes beyond office furniture and interior finishes into the realm of overall base appearance. The U .S. Air Force is the most powerful Air Force in the world. Our weapon systems are uniquely sophisticated and stand generations ahead of the closest competitor. To ensure mission accomplishment, Air Force installations must resemble our high standing and subsequently must be cared for — neat, clean and organized. Orderly base appearance is a herculean task. There are nooks and crannies all over an installation. Controlling the trash and debris that makes its way into these hidden holes is overwhelming, and

frankly requires everyone’s conscious effort. Everyone can contribute and everyone can make a difference. Moreover, true success can only come when everyone works together. As a youn officer remember another military member pointing out to me how they had spotted litter (a soda can) sitting by the sidewalk. They elaborated on how they had seen it every day in the same place for fi e days in a ro . As I talked to this individual, all I kept thinking to myself was, “why didn’t he just pick it up when he first sa it? Ensuring a military installation presents itself in the most organized and professional manner is no easy task, and not one that can be done without the investment from each and every member of our community. This is your military installation. Be proud of it. Take care of it. And make it better. This starts with each of us making a direct contribution to base

appearance. How do you contribute? Well, the new 86th Airlift Wing Base Pride program is a start. In the Base Pride program every unit/ member has an area of responsibility. It’s a “divide and conquer” approach that ill definitely impro e base appearance. But, base appearance can be even simpler than that. The next time you see trash on the ground, pick it up. The next time you walk by garbage blowing in the wind, grab it. The next time you see someone litter, say to them “Hey buddy, don’t do that!” I have the upmost respect for the country and the Air Force that I serve. I’m equally proud of the installation I’m assigned to and its mission. I would expect that is the case for most folks assigned to the K MC. To show it, I challenge each of you to take pride and ownership in base appearance. Contribute and make things better — simply, pick it up! For a fall clean-up checklist, see Page 12.

Landstuhl outlying clinic in Italy earns MEDCOM award by Stefan Alford Landstuhl Regional Medical Center Public Affairs The Livorno Army Health Clinic, Italy, is only the second U .S. Army Medical Command facility to receive the prestigious Army Star Strong recognition for exemplary occupational health and safety management practices following a stringent evaluation by EDC officials ct. 22 to 2 . The comprehensive on-site inspection concluded a three phase 2 3 item checklist review that began in anuary 2 and culminated ith the award of the Army Star Strong status by a team of MEDCOM and civilian safety experts from the Department of Defense’s Voluntary Protection Program Center of Excellence. “We make sure the overall program elements are in place, set policy and standards and provide some training, but really, it’s the accomplishments of the men and women of the Livorno Clinic,” said Harry Raith, Landstuhl Regional Medical Center safety manager who accompanied the MEDCOM assessment team to Livorno. LRMC oversees Livorno and eight other outlying military treatment facilities that fall under it. U nder the LRMC footprint, the Baumholder and K leber clinics,

Vicenza Health Center and Landstuhl Medical Transient Detachment have all completed the first phase and are awaiting the inspection team’s visit for validation of phase two. In the meantime, the clinics at Wiesbaden and Stuttgart will receive their stage one assessments before the end of the year, and LRMC itself is slated for its initial assessment in January. “To our clinic, this is extremely important,” said Maj. James D. Phillips, commander of the Livorno clinic. “It validates what we have been doing to keep ourselves safe and the fact that we are helping to blaze a trail to a safer working environment in the MEDCOM.” “To the community,” he continued, “I think that this is important because, at a time when so much is closing down or has (reduced) services, this shows the community that their health clinic is striving to reach for a higher level of performance.” he as created in 982 by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to recognize and partner with worksites that implement systems to manage worker safety and health that go beyond basic compliance with OSHA standards. In June, the surgeon general of the Army, Lt. Gen. Patricia D. Horoho, made the program a requirement for MEDCOM

facilities to transform from the compliance-based Army Occupational Safety and Health program to a performance-based management system. “The Europe Regional Medical Command leadership volunteered to participate in the OSHA VPP two years before it became mandatory,” said Carol Fontanese, ERMC safety manager, explaining that the Star tron process usually takes 3 to 2 months to complete. The Illesheim Army Health Clinic, Germany, was the first EDC unit to recei e the a ard in une after only 7 months and i orno achie ed it in 22 months. “Because of the ERMC leadership commitment to safety, we are now leading the way in MEDCOM,” Fontanese said. “(As a result) beneficiaries ill experience a culture here ha ards are uickly identified and corrected, making it a much safer and healthier place to receive their medical care.” The different phases of the VPP to achieve Star Strong status include assessments focused on management, leadership and employee involvement, worksite analysis, hazard prevention and control, and safety and health trainin . Durin last eek s final sta e of the evaluation at Livorno to assess the staff’s understanding and knowledge of the program, all employees

were interviewed, to include military, local nationals, DOD civilians and contractors. “It’s not just a safety manager responsibility anymore — it really involves everybody,” Raith said. “This program establishes a culture where everybody sees it as their responsibility to take action where safety is concerned.” “It’s a mindset,” said Pfc. Gregory Swindell, a radiology technician at Livorno. “Too often you’ll see an organization playing host during a command team visit, where (they) will implement or exercise certain ideologies and practices that the command team wants to see. “Then, as soon as the command team leaves, everything returns to the way it was before they arrived,” he continued. “That’s the wrong answer. As a team, while preparing for this assessment, we simply continued to do the same things we had previously been doing because our culture of safety was already established. We already possessed a common mindset that prioritized safety as our mission.” Raith noted that the Livorno staff was also recognized with an ERMClevel award recently for not having aD D in the last fi e years as well as not having had an accident durin the last three fiscal years.

that everyone was my friend, and they all came to see me,” said Hubbard, a native of Richmond, Va. Hubbard’s NCOs and command has ensured that he had ample time to follow his dream. When Hubbard is not on stage, he spends his days on Sembach K aserne making sure a high tempo military police brigade is ready to deploy. “I’ve got so much support from my command. Maj. Gen. Aundre F. Piggee, the commanding general of the 21st Theater Sustainment Command, called down to my unit and asked how I was doing on the show,” Hubbard said. n the first sho ot four s and the crowd gave me a standing o ation and started chantin finals. My performance really propelled me and increased my popularity,” Hubbard said. The audience’s prediction became a reality when he was named a finalist. o on unday ie ers can tune in to the li e actor show and vote for their favorite artist. t s ama in to make the finals. There is a lot of talent on this show. I expected to make it to the second round, and now I’m in the top 12. It’s surreal,” Hubbard said. “I worked really hard, and I’m really excited because this is an amazing opportunity for me.” Hubbard’s passion to sing began at an early age. Growing up, he found many ways to hone his craft ith church choirs and e en a fi e man rhythm and blues group, which sang at local bars and small shows. Whenever he needs to vent or relie e stress he finds a ay to do it through his music. “I started singing when I was 5 years old. It was always something I liked doing. Music has always been there for me. I try to put a unique twist to it. I get all of my stress out with my music,” Hubbard said. Now all this hard work has paid off. He is now building a fan base, which is a whole new experience for him. “I have a lot of new fans, and that’s even odd to me because I’m not used to having fans. I’ve taken pictures with baggers at the commissary and people at the airport. This has been a different experience and it’s really exciting,” Hubbard said. Hubbard must now give his best performance on the live show Sunday, in which viewers vote for their favorite contestant to continue to the next round.

Take a CLEP: Save time, money toward a degree by Airman 1st Class Hailey Haux 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Receiving a college degree can be time consuming and can cost a lot of hard-earned money. There are many ways to get credit for classes and subjects that you already know, without having to sit through lecture after lecture. The college level examination program is designed for people to test on a subject and still get college credit. “Having a college degree of any type is very important,” said Chief Master t. Da id ichards 8 th Airlift Wing Public Affairs chief enlisted manager. “It shows commitment to self and dedication to your profession and the Air Force.

It gives you greater knowledge and appreciation for the things around you.” For active duty military members, CLEPing is free the first time they take the test. “If they don’t pass the CLEP and have to re-take it, they will have to pay $100 for the second test,” said Alyssa ealty 8 th Force Support Squadron test examiner. “Those who aren’t active duty have to pay for the CLEP.” Active-duty members can CLEP classes to get credits toward a Community College of the Air Force degree. “I have seen a few people get 95 percent of their CCAF through taking CLEPs,” said Wealty. “A lot of people get college credits toward their bachelor’s degree as well.” Getting a degree can

open doors for a person, set them up for success and can help them stand out from others in their career field. hen first started in the Air Force I took classes in photography because that’s what I loved to do,” said Richards. “Eventually I got two CCAFs and a bachelor’s degree. Having those things under my belt really put the icing on the cake, which provided me the option to get into these special classes I wanted to take.” Whether military, civilian or dependent, furthering your education and developing as a professional is possible without taking a full course. “I had a military member bring in his daughter ho ust finished a hi h school math class,” said Wealty. “He wanted her to take the CLEP to get the

college credit while it was still fresh in her head.” It is never too early to start taking CLEPs, Wealty said. “Whatever is offered and available, take it,” said Richards. “K eep going. Don’t just get a CCAF and stop. K eep the motivation and dedication and put it into furthering and bettering yourself and career.” To schedule a CLEP online, visit www.europe. programs/ clep and sign up for the subject, date and time. There are three sessions a ailable per day 8 a.m. 10 a.m. and 1: 30 p.m. Only a Department of Defense identification card is needed to take the test. All other supplies will be provided at the test site. Military members do not need to be in uniform to take the test.

German Polizei Corner When to use winter tires

Since Dec. 3, 2010, a German federal law has been in effect that specifically mandates the use of inter tires when conditions are icy. Winter tires have two kinds of markin s A sno ake for sno tires or “M+ S” for tires designed to work in “Matsch und Schnee” (mud and snow). All-season or all-weather tires may also have the “M+ S” marking and are acceptable for winter driving. The law also applies to motorbikes, trucks and buses, regardless of whether the driver is the owner or is renting the vehicle. Most German motorists have long known the old rule of thumb for put-

ting snow tires on the vehicle: “von O bis O,” meaning “from O to O.” It is short for “from October to Easter.” It is a recommendation that one should make the change from regular tires to snow tires in October, and leave them on until Easter. Only snow tires without spikes or studs are allowed in Germany. Tires designed for snow function better than multipurpose tires. All tires should have at least 1.6 millimeters of tread depth, but for maximum safety, tires with less than 4 millimeters should be replaced. Winter tires offer better protection than all-season models, and it’s best if all four tires match. The German

automobile club ADAC recommends using tires that carry the “three peak mountain” seal, the mark of snow tires that meets the highest standards. If the police catch you driving in winter conditions without M+ S tires, you ll ha e to pay a fine of plus a point against your license. If you are involved in an accident or you block traffic in icy conditions ithout tires the fine oes up to 8 includin a point a ainst your license. In addition, some insurance companies may deny coverage to motorists driving with summer tires on winter roads.

LRMC’s Gate 6 closed until Nov. 12 Gate 6 will be closed until Nov. 12 while parking lot repair work is underway at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center. Gate 6 leads to the Burger King parking lot. As a reminder, parking has been redesignated at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center to ensure patients are provided the most accessible parking spaces. All parking places inside the green interior fence that immediately surrounds the main hospital complex are strictly for patients, except for Gate 1 (entrance to ER) and Gate 8. To best access parking areas within the green fence after entering the installation: Continue straight until you approach the T-intersection, turn left onto Munson Circle and

make an immediate right which will lead you into Gate 7 where you’ll find parking near the chapel on your right, and additional patient parking on your left. Turn right at the T-intersection and continue on Munson Circle about halfway around the hospital complex and take a hard left when you see the fire department and signs for the Military Transient Detachment and patient parking. This leads to Gate 3, where you’ll find patient parking on your immediate right and straight ahead. In addition to patient parking within the green interior fence, designated patient parking is also available directly across the street from the ER entrance.

Ramstein celebrates National American Indian Heritage Month


hen we think about Native American heritage, the images of a head dress, dream catchers and other artifacts immediately come to mind. But American Indian culture is so much more than that. Native American culture is rich with history, coura e fi htin spirit and tradition. he month of November has been dedicated to the commemoration of Native American/ Indian and Alaska natives’ immeasurable contributions.

Traveling can be a very stressful experience, with confusing airports, long luggage checkin lines and battling through large crowds of people – it’s a wonder anyone gets off the ground. In the midst of all this chaos there are a few “quiet professionals” who stand tall, devoted to makin e ery i ht more enjoyable. The dedicated service of military i ht attendants is a job that rarely gets recognized, but for the Airmen of the 76th Airlift Squadron their knowledge and expertise is second to none. “The majority of our missions include supporting combatant commanders and congressional delegates and Department of Defense distinguished visitors

from a variety of nations,” said Staff Sgt. Pamela Parsons, 76th A i ht attendant. Durin their tra els i ht attendants help bridge and maintain relations between U .S. and foreign counterparts. In order to prepare for their day to day duties 7 th A i ht attendants must first o throu h specialized training along with the seven-week technical education. Flight attendants receive much of the same training as their aircrew members. nce they finally arri e to their duty station they also recei e aircraft specific round and egress training. “Egress is the emergency procedure used to evacuate passengers and crew from the aircraft,” said Tech. Sgt. Alyssa ostel 7 th A i ht attendant. “We are trained with the help of a C-40 simulator, which shows the exit doors and windows. We are expected to evacuate as quickly and as safely

as we can.” Besides safety, Air Force i ht attendants keep their travelers comfortable by planning and preparing high-quality meals. “When we do the initial planning we look at the itinerary ahead of time and plan the trip meals,” said Postel. “We make up a menu with options on it trying to vary the meals … so it’s not the same thing each meal. Once the passenger chooses a meal of their liking we go out and purchase all the ingredients fresh so we can start preparing.” Out of the various tasks i ht attendants ha e cooking is a group favorite, Postel said. “We all have our specialties and preferences, but for the most part everyone here likes to cook,” said Postel. “We enjoy picking up different tips and tricks from magazines and old family recipes.”

These resiliency skills have proven effective in contributing to the success of teams and leaders, families, students, executives and military personnel. Skills learned include emotion awareness and regulation, impulse control, de-catastrophizing, putting it in perspective, effective communication, challenging negative beliefs, problem solving, and real-time resilience. Sgt. 1st Class Veronica Short, a MRT for the 21st TSC, said the idea to conduct MRT training is an initiative by the 21st TSC leadership. The partnership between the 21st TSC and K HS provided a good opportunity to be able to conduct the resiliency training with the students. “We were invited out to

the high school to talk to our seniors and freshmen to give them some insight on the training that their parents are going through and to provide them tools to use as they progress throughout the school year for the freshmen and then on to their adult lives for the seniors,” Short said. The training was given to the students as a way to help them deal with the adversity and challenges that they may face in their lives. It can help them think about their situations and evaluate situations with a clear head instead of over reacting or responding without thinking. According to the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry website, suicide among young people is a serious problem. Each year in the U nited States, thousands of teenagers commit suicide. Suicide is the third leading cause of death for 15-to-24-year-olds, and the sixth leading cause of death for 5-to-14-year-olds. Teenagers experience strong feelings of stress, confusion, self-doubt, pressure to succeed financial uncertainty and other fears while growing up. For some teenagers, divorce, the formation of a new family with step-parents and step-siblings, or moving to a new community can be very unsettling and can intensify self-doubts. For some teens, suicide may appear to

be a solution to their problems and stress, according to the website. The resiliency training provided by the MRTs was intended to help students cope with some of those issues. “This training for the students, I think is much needed, because sometimes they need help understanding how to bounce back from situations and how to deal with adversity,” said Master Sgt. Gary Weir, an MRT contractin officer ith the 9th Contracting Support Brigade. During the training, the MRT’s taught the students about activating events, thoughts and consequences, thinking traps, “putting things

into perspective,” assertive communication and “hunting for the good stuff.” “The main thing that I learned, was about our thought process and the different traps that we get into when it comes to jumping to conclusions,” said Britney M. Hall, a 12th-grade student at K HS. Hall is the daughter of Staff Sgt. Rukeya Hall from the 627th Movement Control Team. “I am glad the 21st TSC MRT’s came out here because it shows that there are people that do care about the community and also care about the students,” Britney Hall said. “(The) class was pretty good, the students were very

interactive, they asked a lot of questions and they understood the material that we spoke about,” said Weir. Short said being military children gives the students at K HS a head start. She said that while giving the training, a lot of the students already knew about some of the areas that were talked about. “Hopefully this training can become an annual event. There is a resilience week that takes place in March, and we have been invited to take part in that also and so hopefully if all the feedback is good then we should be coming back again next year for the same two events, if not more,” Short said.

Special cake for a special season Originating town celebrates stollen fest in December by Petra Lessoing 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs For a few weeks now, grocery stores and bakeries have been offering Christmas baked goods. Customers have the choice of special Christmas cookies, gingerbread, marzipan and other items. One traditional cake for this season is the “Christstollen,” or “Dresdner Stollen.” The cake originates from Dresden in the eastern part of Germany, and its history of it dates back to 1400. Historians found the first mention of the cake, also called “Striezel,” on a Dresden hospital’s invoice, dated 1474. The cake, a pastry made of our oats and ater contained no butter or milk and was very plain tasting. Therefore, Elector Ernst of Sachsen and his brother Albrecht asked the pope to revoke the “butter ban.” The pope relented and sent a letter, known as the “butter letter,” saying if they did penance, milk and butter may be used in good conscience and with God’s blessing.

Dresden’s Christmas market, called Striezelmarkt, is also mentioned for the first time in a chronicle of 1474. After 1560, bakers from Dresden gave one or two Stollen, weighing 36 pounds, to their reigning prince for the holy fest. Eight masters and eight journeymen carried the Christstollen up to the castle. This tradition was kept for many years. To commemorate this event, a similar Stollen is baked

every year the Saturday before the second Advent at the annual Dresden Stollen Festival. In 1730, August the Strong surpassed everything ever seen. For a festivity, he asked the bakers’ guild to bake a giant Stollen of 1.8 tons for about 24,000 guests. Nowadays, the Dresdner Christstollen has reached a high standard and is made with many high quality natural products. Before World War II, the cake was sent around the world packed in tin boxes. Even though there is a basic recipe for the Dresdner Christstollen, every baker from Dresden has his own secret family recipe handed Courtesy photo down over generations. This year’s stollen fest will take place Dec. 8 in Dresden. It will begin at 10: 30 a.m. on Schlossplatz, and at 11 a.m. the huge Dresdner Stollen will be presented. Then it will be taken through the old part of Dresden in a fest parade. At 12: 15 p.m., the cake will be cut and sold with proceeds going to charity. For more information on the festival, visit www.

Avoid pollution, noise in neighborhood D

uring the cold season, vehicle owners without their own garage like to idle their engines. Motorists run their engines in order to avoid scraping ice and snow from their windshields and to warm up the interior of the vehicle. Doing this creates unnecessary pollution in the neighborhood. Idling engines not only pollutes the environment, but creates noise pollution as well. Additionally, idling is an unauthorized method of warming up vehicle engines, accordin to erman road traffic rules. And it is definitely

not just a trivial offense. Disobeying this rule can result in a hi h fine. he only motorists exempt from this rule are taxi drivers, who may need to warm up their vehicles in low temperatures. A cold engine emits twice or even three times more toxic material. Also, the higher number of revolutions is extremely loud, producing noise pollution. Motorists who prefer a pre-heated vehicle should look into getting a lowemission auxiliary heating system. ( Courtesy of the German Poliz ei)

Runners brave winter weather for European championships Story and photo by Madeleine Dwoiakowski U.S. Army Garrison Baumholder public affairs


he unexpected early snowfall in Baumholder and the white rolling hills made the already challenging cross country course a bit more exciting for all participants in the Department of Defense Dependents Schools European cross country championships Oct. 27. Although some runners forfeited at the last minute, 123 females and 155 males weathered the frosty conditions at the Rolling Hills golf course in Baumholder, solely set up for the cross country event. Eighteen girls’ and 23 boys’ teams from around Europe participated. “I’ve never been to a cross-country race before, and this was an incredible experience. Over 150 runners at the starting line, wind whipping snow into participants and spectators alike, when all the runners stripped down to shorts and T-shirts in the cold Baumholder weather. I was freezing just watching them,” said Lt. Col. Mike “Sully” Sullivan, U SAG Baumholder commander. “I really liked the course ... could have done without the snow, but it certainly made everything interesting,” said Thomas Manuel, who ran for the Patch High School team. The 5-kilometer run looped the wintery scenic hills twice, as spectators kept warm by moving back
