786 CES preserves, transports piece of history Story and photos by Airman Jared Lovett 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

A fragment of the Berlin Wall was placed at a roundabout near the Kaiserslautern Military Community Center as a memorial in conjunction with German Unity Day on Ramstein Air Base, Oct. 1. The Berlin Wall pieces were relocated in time for German Unity Day on Oct. 3. The German holiday celebrates the anniversary of when all of the German states became part of the same country again after the German Democratic Republic voted to abolish itself and join the democratic Federal Republic of Germany along with the other states on Oct. 3, 1990. “The plan was to do it for German Unity Day in combination with German flags that were put up to show our partnership with Germany, and to give more visibility to these wall pieces,” said U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. Daniel Bailey, 786th Civil Engineer Squadron horizontal repairs section chief. See BERLIN WALL, Page 3

Mandatory Coronavirus Disease 2019 vaccination of DOD civilian employees by Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen H. Hicks U.S. Department of Defense To defend the Nation and protect the American people, we need a healthy and ready Total Force. To accomplish this, the Secretary of Defense directed the mandatory vaccination of Service members against the coronavirus disease 2019 by signing the memorandum, “Mandatory Corona virus Disease 2019 Vaccination of Department of Defense Service Members,” on Aug. 24. On Sept. 9, the President of the United States directed Executive Branch agencies to implement a COVID-19 vaccination requirement for Federal employees to ensure the health and safety of the Federal workforce and members of the public with whom they interact by signing Executive Order 14043, “Requiring Coronavirus Disease 2019 Vaccination for Federal Employees.” All DOD civilian employees must be fully vaccinated by Nov. 22, subject to exemptions as required by law. Employees are considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after completing the second dose of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine or 2 weeks after receiving a single dose of a one-dose COVID19 vaccine.

New DOD civilian employees must be fully vaccinated by their entry on duty (start) date or Nov. 22, whichever is later. To meet this requirement, individuals must be vaccinated with vaccines that are either fully licensed or authorized for emergency use by the Food and Drug Administration (e.g., C o m i r n a t y / P f i z e r- B i o N Te c h , Moderna, Johnson & Johnson/ Janssen); listed for emergency use on the World Health Organization Emergency Use Listing (e.g., AstraZeneca/ Oxford); or approved for use in a clinical trial vaccine for which vaccine efficacy has been independently confirmed (e.g., Novavax). Those with previous COVID-19 infection(s) or previous serology are not considered fully vaccinated on that basis for the purposes of this mandate. Those who are not currently fully vaccinated must meet the following deadlines, if using vaccines that are fully licensed or authorized for emergency use by the FDA, in order to be fully vaccinated by Nov. 22: • Oct. 11: first dose deadline (if receiving the Moderna vaccine); • Oct. 18: first dose deadline (if receiving the Comirnaty/ Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine);

• Nov. 8: second dose deadline (if receiving the Moderna and Comirnaty/PfizerBioNTech vaccines); and • Nov. 8: first (only) dose deadline (if receiving the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine). In accordance with Deputy Secretary of Defense Memorandum, “Coronavirus Disease 2019 Vaccine Guidance,” Dec. 7, 2020, DOD civilian employees are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at any DOD vaccination site, including military medical treatment facilities. They may also opt to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at locations other than DOD vaccination sites, including retail stores, private medical practices, and/or local and State public health department sites. Employees, including those who have already received COVID-19 vaccines, must be prepared to provide a copy of their COVID-19 vaccine record in order to meet forthcoming procedures for DOD COVID-19 vaccination verification. Additional guidance, including procedures for processing vaccination exemption requests, will be published by the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness.

The USD(P&R) is authorized to rescind this memorandum as necessary for purposes of providing updated guidance. Vaccinating DOD civilian employees against COVID-19 will save lives and allow for the defense of our Nation. Thank you for your focus on this

critical mission. You can read the guidance memo at https://media.defense. gov/2021/Oct/04/2002867430/1/-1/0/mandatory-coronavirusdisease-2019-vaccinationof-dod-civilian-employeesosd008990-21-resp-final.pdf.

How to merge lanes in Germany Story and graphic by the German American Community Office Merging lanes in Germany is different from merging in the United States. Germany uses the “zipper system” or Reissverschlussverfahren. The system is encoded in German Road Traffic Regulations (§7 (4) StVO) and dictates that when two lanes converge into one, drivers should proceed all the way to the front of their respective lane and wait to merge at the last possible point. Then they should alter-

nately fold together like teeth on a zipper. It can feel counterproductive or like cutting in line, but it is actually a more efficient way to merge lanes and make the most of the space available. Some studies have shown that the zipper line rule can increase merging capacity by as much as 15 to 20 percent. For more information, you can reach out to the German American Community Office by emailing to info@gaco-kl.de or calling 0631 3633010.

October 8, 2021 BERLIN WALL from Page 1 786th CES Airmen worked meticulously to transport the historical artifact without any damage to the wall. The pieces were previously on display since the early 2000s near the Ramstein Officers’ Club. On Sept. 14, Airmen went to the site and used a chainsaw meant for concrete to separate the wall pieces from their base. “It was a challenge because it’s a piece of history,” said Staff Sgt. Allen Brewer, 786th CES pavement and equipment craftsman. “We didn’t want to damage it and with heavy equipment, sometimes that happens.” After successfully removing the wall from its foundation without damaging it, the wall was laid on the back of a 50-ton flatbed semitractor-trailer to be stored away while Airmen prepared the next site for its arrival. Airmen dug a rectangle 17 feet long, 6 feet wide and 20 inches deep at the new location with the subgrade and a base course to place the Berlin Wall upon. Afterward, they poured 12 inches of concrete around the base of the wall to hold it in place. Airmen went to great lengths to ensure the preservation of the pieces during the installation. “The hardest part to standing

the wall back up was doing it gently enough to not damage the pieces because they didn’t have anything to hook onto to pick them up with,” Bailey said. “We had to do everything manually which made it a lot more difficult.” To stand it back up, Airmen used an excavator and a telescopic handler to pick up each piece and maneuver them into the ground. “We initially didn’t know how to take it apart, how to move it or how to make it happen, but we took action and worked as a team,” Bailey said. “In the face of every obstacle, we were able to figure out a solution to make it happen for our German Unity Day.” The 786th CES successfully preserved and moved the portion of the Berlin Wall to the traffic circle, making the memorial more visible to the local community.

Starlink increases Comm capabilities at RAB Ramstein Airmen received 15 terminals for satellite internet during Afghanistan evacuation operations, Sept. 20. Ramstein Air Base is currently using the Starlink terminals to support the current evacuation transient hub operations where standard fiber-optic or other standard, physical internet connections are not available. “We are using Starlink as a third party terminal to allow other units and partners outside the U.S. Air Force to access our network,” said U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class David S. Cho, 86th Communication Squadron client systems technician. “They can use it as a commercial Wi-Fi and can use a virtual private network to gain access to (the internet).” During Operations Allies Refuge and Operations Allies Welcome, many other units and organizations came to Ramstein to assist with the growing num-

ber of evacuees. The 86th CS helped where they could to get our partners access to U.S. Air Force systems. “The 86 Communications Squadron provided commercial internet capabilities by using Starlink to federal agencies like the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of State,” said U.S. Air Force Capt. Hector Valladares, the 86th CS Operations flight commander. “This enables them to connect to their systems to vet and process evacuees.” Innovation is a top priority of senior U.S. Air Force leaders. New technologies and process improvement is what the Air Force needs to stay ahead of adversaries and strengthen their allies. “Starlink is a new capability that is currently in beta testing,” Valladares said. “It provides high-speed internet access with download speeds of up to 150 megabytes per second. It takes about 15 to 30 minutes to setup without the need for any infrastructure.”

As many who live in rural areas know, getting a wired internet connection is difficult. Ethernet cables are fragile and need to be carefully handled which is the same for the U.S. military. Certain locations can’t receive a hard-wired connection which is why the 86th CS turned to an alternative solution. “For a few places around the base it was difficult to get internet cables to,” Cho said. “It can take days if not months sometimes to accomplish and a lot of the cables have to be run underground because they’re so delicate. So with the Starlink terminals it saved us a lot of time and work.” The recent evacuation operations have pushed much of the existing information technology infrastructure to its limits. The 86th CS adaptability in use of new technologies and the application of them into realworld missions. In the current Afghanistan evacuation, this technology linked key interagency partners together which expedited the transport of vulnerable people to safe haven.

Germans, Americans reinforce partnership during return to annual forum in Kaiserslautern Story and photos by Jason Tudor U.S. Army Garrison Rheinland-Pfalz Community and military leaders gathered for the first time in nearly two years for the Kaiserslautern Military Community Mayor’s Forum Sept. 28. U.S. Army Garrison RheinlandPfalz served as host for the event, which is conducted by the U.S. Air Force’s 86th Airlift Wing, at the garrison’s Armstrong’s Club in the Vogelweh Military Community. The event is attended by mayors from the local community, as well as U.S. Army and Air Force leadership. As the “mayor” of the garrison’s 29 sites in Germany, Col. Vance J.

Hosting of the annual event rotates between the community and military venues. The Coronavirus pandemic postponed the annual gathering in 2020, though military and civilian leaders kept in constant contact via telephone and email. The meeting lasted about two hours.

Meet USAFE –AFAFRICA’s newest command chief, CMSgt. Benjamin Hedden Story and photo by Tech. Sgt. Michael Battles U.S. Forces in Europe - Air Forces Africa Public Affairs There’s a new face within the halls of the U.S. Air Forces in Europe – Air Forces Africa headquarters building - a senior enlisted leader who advises on the readiness, training, development and utilization of more than 21,000 enlisted personnel assigned to the command. Chief Master Sgt. Benjamin Hedden assumed the role of command chief on Sept. 1, and immediately went to work for the enlisted Airmen assigned to the command. “As we continue to use the

‘Accelerate Change or Lose’ strategic mindset to shape our force, I want to make sure that our USAFE-AFAFRICA Airmen have the tools necessary to support not only our theater, but the requirements of any commander, anytime … anywhere. Readiness will always be a priority.” Hedden joined the Air Force 26 years ago as an aerospace ground equipment Airman, which is where his foundation for compliance and discipline was built. These two ideals shaped his career and guided him to becoming a military training instructor at Lackland Air Force Base, San Antonio. “I’ve really used those concepts to drive my career and

grow into the leader I am today,” Hedden said. “Together, they will help guide our senior leaders, develop the force and improve the quality of life for our personnel.” As the air component senior enlisted leader to both the U.S. European and Africa commands, Hedden is also responsible for directing enlisted security engagements and partnership building for an area of responsibility comprised of 104 countries across 19 million square miles. “This MAJCOM is known for having the best multi-capable Airmen in the Air Force, and I look forward to developing our enlisted force into an even stronger warfighting capability,” Hedden said.

OSI ‘surge’ pivotal to historic Afghan evacuation mission by Wayne Amann Office of Special Investigations Public Affairs In the span of 24 hours, Ramstein Air Base and Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar, transformed into the United States’ two primary evacuation hubs for Operation Allies Refuge, supporting the most expansive humanitarian airlift in the history of the U.S. With hundreds of flights and more than 35,000 Afghan travelers through Ramstein AB alone, the U.S. Government and its NATO allies and

partners focused on the sheltering, feeding, caring and safety of the travelers. The Office of Special Investigations played a critical role in this successful mission execution. OSI facilitated and conducted the screening and processing of more than 60,000 individuals in the Central Command Area of Responsibility, and more than 35,000 in U.S. Air Forces Europe-Air Forces Africa. One hundred-twelve OSI special agents, analysts and professional

staff personnel from 24 units and five wings across the globe surged to Germany and Qatar to team up with interagency partners, including the Department of State, Federal Bureau of Investigations, Criminal Investigation Command, National Counterterrorism Center, and Customs and Border Protection. Working around the clock, they collectively provided force protection for military service members, the multitude of volunteers, the installations, the travelers themselves, and the American homeland for this unprecedented undertaking. “Although the volume of activity took place in Germany and Qatar, OSI teamed elsewhere with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service to enable their force protection efforts at Naval Air Station Sigonella, Italy, and Naval Station Rota, Spain,” said Col. Terrence M. Joyce, OSI Region 5 commander, USAFE-AFAFRICA, Ramstein AB. “The mission continues and the

extraordinary collaboration across the interagency team is a testament to our shared unity of purpose. I’m immensely honored and humbled to serve alongside such selfless professionals and be a part of Task Force Allies Refuge.” This sentiment was echoed by Col. Tara Lunardi, OSI Region 2 commander, Langley Air Force Base, Va., in her email lauding the efforts of her region’s detachment personnel in Qatar. “Truly a heroic effort by you who’ve been on the front lines since Day 1 to take this incredible and unexpected task across the finish line,” she said. “You are genuine examples of how OSI talent gets it done time and again, in spite of little sleep and heart-wrenching scenes hourly. The command couldn’t have hand-picked a better team to lead us through such a historic effort…so grateful for everyone’s professionalism, attitude and eye-watering work ethic.”

OSI and its multiple federal law enforcement partners continue to remain focused on their screening and vetting missions in support of operations at the overseas hubs, consistent with the dual goals of protecting national security and providing protection for Afghan evacuees. “We are so proud of the important work the OSI team has been doing in support of Operations Allies Refuge/Allies Welcome,” said Brig. Gen. Terry L. Bullard, OSI commander. “OSI special agents, analysts and professional staff from across the globe surged to ensure the safe, secure and effective reception and transit of Afghan evacuees.” To date, approximately 124,000 people have been safely flown out of Afghanistan, including about 6,000 American citizens. This massive military, diplomatic and humanitarian effort, one of the most difficult in America’s history, has been an extraordinary feat of logistics and coordination under some of the most challenging circumstances imaginable. “While this mission has been relentless, complex and incredibly fluid, each member of OSI continues to go above and beyond the call of duty, demonstrating to our travelers, allies and partners across the world, the true Spirit of America,” Joyce added.

provide evacuees with some primary knowledge of what they can expect after transitioning to the United States. The CET hopes that these workshops will help evacuees assimilate more smoothly when they move to their next destination. “The transition workshops were put in place to help evacuees learn some of what they will need to know when they move to the U.S.,” said Maj. Keavy Rake, RAB CET lead. “We want to prepare them for what life will be like in the U.S. and what cultural changes they will need to know.” Rapidly moving to a new culture can be difficult, but volunteer educators are striving to make this transition as comfortable as possible for the evacuees. “We are teaching workshops on basic English, like letters, numbers, shapes, colors and basic phrases, and classroom etiquette to our students,” said Lindsay Vanbillard, Pod two education program coordinator. “We will be covering basic lessons on how to raise your hand, listen and not to interrupt when the teacher is talking.” Many evacuees have had varying levels of access to education in Afghanistan. Vanbillard explained that one particular goal of these workshops is to familiarize the evacuee population with how classrooms operate in the U.S. education system. “We are teaching the children and adults this because many have not been in a classroom environment KAISERSLAUTERN

before,” Vanbillard said. “We want to help them learn this material so when they get to the U.S., they will be able to communicate with others and adjust to the changes they will experience.” Fifty evacuees have already signed up for workshops, but Vanbillard said they are expecting up to 600 students in Pod two alone. Many of the evacuees are excited for the workshops and are willing to lend a helping hand. “We aren’t the only ones excited about this,” Lindsay said. “Some of the evacuees who are fluent in English have volunteered to teach some of the workshops. They said they are so happy we are doing this for them and can’t wait to get started and help out the other evacuees.” The U.S. military and its partners are committed to caring for and welcoming evacuees in as many ways as possible. The teams supporting the workshops are constantly working to ensure the evacuees know they are more than just a number, and the

military presence at Ramstein is doing everything they can to provide care while evacuees are housed there. “I think it’s so important that we are doing this,” Rake said. “We are the first face of the U.S. they have seen and we want to make sure it’s a lasting one. Hopefully they will remember their time at Ramstein AB for the rest of their lives and the positive impact we had on them.” The entire operation continues to impact Airmen and volunteers in powerful ways, and Rake is no exception. For her, it’s about the people who are here and the memories they are making. “This whole operation has just really shown me how human the military really is,” Rake said. “I’ve been to Afghanistan and I’ve seen a few of the people I worked with over there. I saw them and it made me so happy to learn they made it out and are on the way to the U.S. I am so proud to be part of this and I’ll remember it forever.”

Catherine Ilic, a transition workshop instructor, gives a thumbs up to an evacuee from Afghanistan at Ramstein Air Base, Sept. 30. Ilic and others are teaching children classroom etiquette because many of them are unfamiliar with an American classroom environment.

Cultural integration classes bring American life into focus by Eleanor Prohaska 21st Theater Sustainment Command There is no “typical” Afghan traveler among the men, women and children currently living in the Logistical Support Areas at Rhine Ordnance Barracks in Kaiserslautern. They come from different tribes. They were farmers, soldiers, teachers and students. Some are married. Some are pregnant. Some speak English and have lived in the United States. For others, it is their first time outside their home country. Their varied backgrounds, experiences, hopes and dreams form a kaleidoscope as they wait for their journey to America to come in to focus. Afghan travelers who have already spent time in the U.S. know that understanding American norms will make the journey easier. With the support from U.S. Army Reserve Civil Affairs, the first traveler-led cultural integration class took place this week at ROB. About 60 male Afghan travelers attended.

Spc. Carl Youngblood, 457th Civil Affairs, 7th Mission Support Command, 21st Theater Sustainment Command, welcomes Afghan travelers to "Intro to the USA" at Rhine Ordnance Barracks, Kaiserslautern, Germany. The cultural integration class, conducted in both Pashto and Dari, provided an introduction to life in the west, examined major differences between life in Afghanistan and life in the U.S. and encouraged participants to ask questions.

“Learning about American culture is very important,” said Abdul Waheed, a Washington D.C. police officer from Afghanistan currently volunteering as

a linguist. Waheed said familiarizing travelers with U.S. social services as well as what is considered socially appropriate in the U.S., can ease anxiety and stress, minimize misunder-

standings and help travelers succeed in America. That is the thinking behind the class, according to Spc. Carl Youngblood, 457th Civil Affairs

Battalion, 361st Civil Affairs Brigade, 7th Mission Support Command. The 7th Mission Support Command is the only U.S. Army Reserve command stationed in Germany with units across Europe. An Afghan traveler and Fulbright Scholar who has lived in the U.S. recognized the value of sharing basic information on what to expect from life in the U.S., according to Youngblood. He volunteered to lead the first “Intro to the USA” class, and based on the positive response, more are likely to follow. “Everyone is really excited,” Youngblood said. “The word has spread. We found people who have lived in America and they’ve already volunteered to give their own classes, separate from the ones we’ve organized.” The class, conducted in both Pashto and Dari, provided an introduction to life in the west, examined major differences between life in Afghanistan and life in the U.S. and encouraged participants to ask questions. “It’s important to everyone that we help you with the transition to the U.S. and take advantage of the time we have here to have these cultural classes,” said Youngblood as he welcomed class participants. At the maleonly LSA, class organizers ensured that each tent was represented, to enhance the distribution of information. “In a sense, each tent is a tribe,” explained Youngblood. “We respect that cultural norm to ensure that the communication is going to everyone.” Youngblood said supporting Operation Allies Welcome by facilitating cultural integration classes led by the travelers themselves is a perfect illustration of how U.S. Army Civil Affairs works. “This is a real world event,” he said. “Everything that we’ve learned in our training, this is what it’s been for—helping out the civilian populous that has been affected by some kind of event, whether that’s man made or a natural disaster.” The traveler-led classes are one way Afghan travelers are helping each other realize their shared vision of a safe and happy future in the United States.

support specialist. “I got to see the organization chart and learn our area of responsibility, which was beneficial since I had already been an employee for over a month. As someone that is new to Germany it was great to see the community support functions as well. What I enjoyed most was the interaction from the Commander and Command Sergeant Major and how they made me feel welcome. Being new to the Army and Germany is slightly overwhelming, so I appreciate the warm welcome!” TMO takes place the second Wednesday of each month.

other important landmarks. On the bus tour, Col. Klosinski stressed the importance of being familiar with the area in Baumholder, took time to answer questions, and provided more information about the two communities along with information on dayto-day life in the Kaiserslautern Military Community. During the tour, participants were able to view three different housing units on Baumholder. “The team member orientation was of great benefit to me as a new employee to the Army,” said Heather Scanlan, garrison program

Introducing and teaching new employees the mission and organization of U.S. Army Garrison Rheinland-Pfalz is the goal of Team Member Orientation and the next one takes place on Oct. 13. The first in-person TMO in 18 months took place Sept. 15 at the Kazabra Club on Vogelweh hosted by the garrison’s Directorate of Human Resources. TMO is helpful for new employees to get an understanding of the garrison mission and how USAG Rheinland-Pfalz fits under the umbrella of Installation Management Command and Army Materiel Command, as well as providing support to U.S. Army Europe and Africa. The class offers an introduction to the organizational structure of the garrison and an overview of each directorate and staff agency. “Welcoming new members of team Rheinland-Pfalz is the focus of our leadership,” stated Shea Giagnorio, garrison training instructor. “We want to establish a standard of understanding about the garrison mission, the importance each person plays in our mission, and how happy the command is to have them join our team, the best garrison in Europe. Taking the time to meet each individual that has chosen to join our team makes for a positive first impression and shows that we care about our people.” The overview began with welcome remarks from garrison commander Col. Vance J. Klosinski and garrison senior enlisted leader Command Sgt. Major Stephen J. LaRocque. Although they each spoke about the garrison’s mission, they both emphasized the importance of all employees at all levels, the ability for each employee to create change within the organization and a people-first mentality. “Providing this training for our new employees not only gives us a chance to teach about the unique mission of the garrison, but it also allows for myself and Command Sgt. Major LaRocque to personally get to know all of our new team members,” said Klosinski. “I think it is important for people to know that they are a valuable asset to the garrison team and for them to get to know us.” The orientation format for this iteration was different from previous years. It now concludes with a bus tour of Baumholder and

U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Gabriel Santiago, 86th Security Forces Squadron military working dog handler, stands outside the newly-renovated MWD kennel with his MWD, Arthur, at Ramstein Air Base, Sept. 29.

The 86th Security Forces Squadron and the 435th Construction and Training Squadron hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the reopening of the military working dog kennel after undergoing renovations at Ramstein Air Base, Sept. 29. The initial planning for the renovation began in 2015, according to U.S. Air Force Tech. Sgt. Jessica Martinez-Santana, 86th SFS kennel master. Over the past few months, there were multiple obstacles that Martinez-Santana and her team had to overcome in order to open the renovated facility. “Some of the hurdles that we had to face were COVID and Operation Allies [Welcome], but our whole team was able to push

through that and we are here to finally reopen our kennels and bring our military working dogs to Ramstein,” Martinez-Santana said. Throughout the renovation process, MWDs from Ramstein had been staying with the 100th Military Working Dog Detachment located at the Miseau Army Ammo Depot. MWD handlers were taking 20 minute trips to pick up their dogs and bring them back to complete the mission at Ramstein, Martinez-Santana said. “This renovation creates a better, healthier environment for military working dogs,” she said. “We have a liaison here whose sole job is to transition military working dogs from downrange into going back to [their] home station, or from home station to downrange. It is going to create a more stable environment while they stay here on Ramstein and be able to com-

plete the mission downrange, so that is why it is so important.” Some of Martinez-Santana’s responsibilities as the kennel master include ensuring all dogs are certified, dog teams are trained and overseeing the kennel through spot inspections. She said she puts a lot of trust in her team to ensure dogs are proficient and ready at all times, and that it feels good to have the MWDs next door to be able to easily check on them. Handlers must work with their MWDs extensively to ensure readiness and proficient training. Airmen from the 86th SFS military working dog section are excited for the completion of the renovations. “There are only four of us that have experienced the dogs actually being here,” said Staff Sgt. George Brooks, 86th SFS military working dog trainer. “It will be a new experience for a lot of [the Airmen].”

US, Estonia host European partnership flight event

Service members from the U.S. military and six allied and partner nations came together for a European Partnership Flight event, the Baltic Radar and Sensor Visibility and Integration Workshop co-hosted by U.S. Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa and the Estonian Ministry of Defence in Tallinn, Estonia, Sept. 13-17. This weeklong event brought together representatives from U.S. European Command, U.S. Naval Forces Europe – Africa and USAFE, along with allies and partners from Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Finland and Sweden to discuss the way ahead in support of the radar and sensor visibility and integration efforts across the Baltic Region.

by Tech Sgt. Michael Battles U.S. Air Forces in Europe – Air Forces Africa Public Affairs Service members from the U.S. military and six allied and partner nations came together for a European Partnership Flight event, the Baltic Radar and Sensor Visibility and Integration Workshop co-hosted by U.S. Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa and the Estonian Ministry of Defence in Tallinn, Estonia, Sept. 13-17. This weeklong event brought together representatives from U.S. European Command, U.S. Naval Forces Europe – Africa, and USAFE, along with allies and partners from Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Finland and Sweden to discuss the way ahead in support of the radar and sensor visibility and integration efforts across the Baltic Region. “The EPF is our chance to synchronize with our partners about our shared vision for theater operations,” said U.S. Air Force Col. Victoria Habas, 603rd Air Operations Center deputy commander. “This kind of in-person event has been sorely missed over the last couple of years while travel was constrained. We make great gains in trust and confidence

amongst each other when we have a chance to hear questions, address concerns, brainstorm and even socialize with one another.” According to Habas, we wouldn’t be able to obtain our goal of developing an enduring C2 mission partner environment in support of air domain awareness and integrated air and missile defense without our partners. “Our partners possess outstanding capability in both their equipment and their people,” Habas said. “In order to be successful in a future fight, we have to be able to bring those capabilities to bear seamlessly with our own.” The workshop focused on the tasks required to fuse data from organic radars to create an enduring and integrated air picture across the Baltic Region, and was in support of a Significant Security Cooperation Initiative to develop a robust C2 network that supports NATO and allied forces. “The [EPF] event for Baltic Radar and Sensor Visibility and Integration Workshop had very practical and well-aimed goals,” said Lt. Col. Kristo Lipasaar, Chief of A3/7 Estonian Air Force Headquarters. “This particular event in Estonia enabled for all involved parties to establish com-

mon understanding of the initiative, and to set milestones for the way ahead.” Lipasaar continued by stating, “The end state of the initiative would enable much improved tactical data link coverage over the region, joint information sharing, redundancy of the situational awareness, and permanently available AirC2 with USAFE.” According to U.S. Navy Cmdr. Micah Murphy, U.S. European Command J5 Strategy Division, the EPF is an opportunity to connect with regional partners about different topics of interest such as IAMD. “[IAMD] is a complex and complicated challenge,” said Murphy. “There is no monopoly on good ideas and often the best ideas can come from those closest to the problem. Our partners provided some great insights into some of their specific challenges as well as ideas on how we can better work together.” U.S. Forces in Europe will use the results of the workshop to prepare its personnel and Baltic partners for the next Astral Knight Exercise in 2022 and help attain a more increased Joint All Domain Command and Control awareness.

521 AMOW implements Nodal ACE to execute Afghan Evacuation

Courtesy story 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Airmen of the 521st Air Mobility Operations Wing were called to action to support a surge in evacuation efforts out of Hamid Karzai International Airport (HKIA), Kabul, Afghanistan and the immediate need for increased manpower was apparent, Aug. 16. Realizing this, the 521 AMOW executed a warfighting concept called Nodal Agile Combat Employment, or “Nodal ACE” which is an AMOW commander’s ability to shift his or her personnel and resources, as needed, to support such surges. “In most instances ACE looks like shifting aircraft and equipment closer to the fight,” said Col. Adrienne Williams, 521 AMOW commander. “But in this case, the established en route enterprise of the 521 AMOW was already where it needed to be, we just had to increase our manpower at certain locations to support the operation tempo.” Overall, the commander shifted 78 critical personnel from within the wing to the four most-saturated locations, or nodes, in less than 24 hours. Throughout Operation Allies Refuge, the wing executed five core missions — command and control, aerial port, aircraft maintenance, aircrew support, and aeromedical evacuation — at a significantly larger scale than steady-state flow. The geographic location of the 521 AMOW’s 8th Expeditionary Air Mobility Squadron at Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar, made it a prime candidate for receiving nearly 85 percent of U.S. aircraft exiting HKIA and as a result the largest contingent of the shifted manpower. Besides time, a key advantage of Nodal ACE is that the commander can “lift and shift” Airmen based on their expertise, background and unique skills who are already famil-

iar with the mission and are ready to make an impact as soon as they touch down. Staff Sgt. Micheal Do, an Air Mobility Control Center controller, was one of the Airmen temporarily moved to Al Udeid AB from Ramstein Air Base. When Do arrived at the 8 EAMS, the “Mighty Ocho” was in the frenzy of the first week of the evacuation surge. But, with hand-selected Airmen pulled directly from 521 AMOW units, he and the other augmentees required minimal spin-up. “All of us sent there were operationally tested and proven controllers,” Do explained, elaborating on his experience within Air Mobility Command. “We were able to help other Airmen understand how to handle the complexities of mission management, giving them valuable training to relieve some of the burden.” At the peak, there were more than 46 C-17 Globemaster IIIs on-ramp at Al Udeid AB and up to 35 daily launches. As an AMCC controller, Do and the rest of the team were faced with the difficult challenge of stage management. This ensures efficient flow of aircraft into an airfield, while turning and sending off outgoing aircraft. “It required creative thinking from both the 8 EAMS and 379th airfield management teams to turn taxiways into parking lots,” said Do. “It was a humbling experience to see everyone give everything they had, every day.” Do was not alone — members of the 728th Air Mobility Squadron out of Incirlik Air Base, Turkey, were also pushed forward to Al Udeid AB to provide logistical support and ensure a safe, orderly evacuation. But, it wasn’t just operators that were needed to assist in the mission. The wing also pushed forward Tijuana Odom, 521 AMOW director of welfare, from Ramstein AB. “Our Airmen at the ‘Might Ocho’ were stressed and fatigued. They were

working 12-15 hour days, with no time off,” Odom explained. “They were seeing some things they weren’t mentally prepared for, and I was able to provide the psychological services they needed.” A 30-year veteran of both Active Duty and Air Force Reserves as well as Civil Service, Odom describes her time with the 8 EAMS as, “the biggest impact I’ve ever had. “For our leadership to recognize the need and move me there to provide support directly to the 8th was huge,” she continued. “Being there, I built a rapport with the unit and I was able to have one-on-one conversations so they could process and talk about what they were going through.” During the height of operations, en route Airmen moved tens of thousands of travelers a day via Al Udeid and additional nodes, facilities, and aircraft and it was the execution of Nodal ACE that rapidly put the right people in the right locations to accomplish this mission. In total, 53 Airmen were moved to Al Udeid AB, 12 to Ramstein AB, 11 to Naval Air Station Sigonella and two to Kuwait International Airport, Kuwait, to augment operations and support Airmen in the highest-saturated nodes. Another Nodal ACE vignette came from the Mediterranean Sea, where Airmen from both the 725th Air Mobility Squadron located at Naval Station Rota, Spain, and the 724th Air Mobility Squadron at Aviano Air Base, Italy, were sent to increase the AMOW capabilities at NAS Sigonella, Italy. Meanwhile, personnel from the 726th Air Mobility Squadron at Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany, drove down the road to support operations in Hangar Five, a C-5 Galaxy maintenance hangar on Ramstein AB transformed temporarily into an international airport terminal to process the high volume of evacuees onward to their final destination. However, it was not just personnel

The Airman is assigned to the 726th Air Mobility Squadron at Spangdahlem Air Base, but is performing duty at the 721st Aerial Port Squadron to assist with the operational surge brought about by the ongoing Afghan evacuations.

who were shifted during Nodal ACE execution. Many Patriot Express rotators, and other non-evacuation related airlift missions generally intended for Ramstein AB were absorbed by the 726th at Spangdahlem AB. Similarly, The 727th Air Mobility Squadron located at Royal Air Force Mildenhall, England, became a KC-10 Extender hub with maintainers working twelve hour shifts to sustain 24/7 maintenance of KC-10 aircraft flying 4 lines a day, 24 hours a day and moving 3,396 evacuees via 23 sorties. Nodal ACE contributed to the successful evacuation of approximately 124,000 personnel out of Afghanistan

while preserving additional capability to support steady-state requirements. “The AMOW was designed to flex and absorb shock, even during the largest DoD Non-Combat Evacuation Operation Airlift in U.S. history,” said Williams. “It’s what the Airmen of the 521 AMOW do — they put the Rapid in Rapid Global Mobility!” The 521 AMOW, comprised of over 2,000 Total Force Airmen and headquartered out of Ramstein AB, is part of the global air mobility support system for Europe, Africa and the Middle East, managing strategic air mobility operations at 19 unique locations and 15 countries.

AUTUMN COLORS from Page 1 and immerse yourself in autumn’s grandeur! One of the chief benefits of living in Germany is that nearly everyone is close to trees. That may sound odd, but consider this: few natural wonders are more wondrous than Germany’s forests in autumn. Germany is famous for its forests, and with good reason. They can be found nearly everywhere, and can be appreciated from almost anywhere. When you drive beautiful twolane roads through, say, the Black Forest, it’s like you’ve entered into a whole new world. It is literally incredible. Best of all, you can almost always find (free, no-fee) hiking spots along the way. If you stop and go for a walk (or run, or mountain bike ride), you can lose yourself for hours and come back refreshed. Since autumn is upon us, here are four great places to begin your leaf appreciation tour.

Black Forest Even though the Black Forest is famous for its evergreen trees, autumn colors can be found in abundance. Best of all, the ambiance of the Black Forest is perfect for the fall season. There are golden fields, long shadows, gothic villages and comfortable gasthauses in which to warm yourself.

As night begins to fall, things might even start to seem a little spooky. Where to start: This region is ideal for driving, and there are a ton of jumping off points. Start in Pforzheim and wind your way south along Highway 294 to Freudenstadt. Or begin in Baden Baden and dive into the heart of the forest along Highway 500. Whatever route you choose, you won’t be disappointed.

Palatinate Forest For those who live in or near Kaiserslautern, you have natural gold right in your back yard. The Palatinate Forest is absolutely beautiful during the autumn. From a distance, the hills can almost seem like a painting: grand splotches of gold, green and orange intermingle. It’s outstanding. And there are an abundance of places to hike and bike in the forest. It’s a must-do. Where to start: For adventurers, plug “Johanniskreuz” into your GPS and just start driving. Once you get there, pick a direction, go, and enjoy. For those who need a little more precision, Highway 48 from Kaiserslautern to Burg Trifels is tough to beat.

Hessen Spessart Nature Park The Spessart is a heavily forested range of small,

old mountains that stretch from northern Bavaria into Southern Hessen. Going there is like visiting an ancient, almost archetypal version of Germany. Autobahns and large cities disappear, replaced by vast stretches of what feels like well-cultivated wilderness. Parts of the forest are populated by hundred-year-old oak trees, towering beech trees and deep silence. It’s especially gorgeous in autumn. Where to start: Begin in Biebergemund, and wind your way southeast along Highway 276 to Lohr am Main. It will give you a great taste of the Spessart, and will provide ample opportunities to take small side roads north or south into the forests.

Vineyards Autumn is harvest season for German vintners. This much is true. But for anyone who has witnessed hillsides of vines packed with golden leaves, autumn is also leafpeeping season. Fortunately for most Americans living in Germany, you’re rarely far from great wine regions. Where to start: The Mosel Region has loads of picturesque views, especially above towns like Piesport or BernkastelKues. Of course, there are also amazing vineyards to see in the Pfalz region or the Nahe region.
