Ramstein to host Retiree Appreciation Day by Airman 1st Class Trevor Rhynes 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

T

he annual Retiree Appreciation Day kicks off today at the Ramstein Officers’ Club with speeches from wing leadership. Retiree Appreciation Day is an informational fair for retirees in the KMC and informs them on what they are and are not entitled to. This year’s event starts at 8 a.m. today and will carry on until noon. “Agencies from all over the base will be available

throughout the day to talk about what they offer,” said Staff Sgt. Barbara Coddington, one of two planners for Retiree Appreciation Day. “Representatives from different agencies will present their information, then will be available to answer any follow-up questions later that morning.” Planning the event took coordination between the agencies speaking throughout the day, the Retiree Affairs Office and the Ramstein Officers’ Club, which is hosting the event. When coordinating between agencies, Coddington

and Staff Sgt. Laura Ashline, the other planner for the day’s events, look to see if that agency will have a booth or a speaker. Fundraisers helped with the funding for this year’s event, paying for the breakfast and raffle tickets. Fundraising was a huge thing. “This year’s event wouldn’t have happened without our sponsors,” Coddington said. “Without them, planning for this event wouldn’t have run as smoothly as it has.”

170th IBCT cases colors for last time by Ignacio “Iggy” Rubalcava U.S. Army Garrison Baumholder Public Affairs

T

he 170th Infantry Brigade Combat Team conducted a casing of the colors ceremony Tuesday in the Hall of Champions on Smith Barracks. The ceremony marked the end of an era, which saw the presence of combat Soldiers in Baumholder for more than 50 years. Casing the 170th IBCT colors for the last time were Col. Mark D. Raschke, 170th IBCT commander, and Command Sgt. Major James A. Ackermann. After the ceremony, Lt. Gen. Mark P. Hertling, U.S. Army in Europe commander, told Soldiers, family members and German guests, “It’s never easy to say goodbye to those with whom you’ve shared joy, sorrow, laughter and pain, peacetime training and wartime hardship. But we have asked you here on Baumholder to do all that and we’ve asked you to do it on a very accelerated timeline. And like all the other missions the Bayonet Brigade has received, you’ve performed that mission exceedingly well.” Brigade Soldiers have been preparing for the de-activation since their return from Afghanistan earlier this year. Only about 800 Soldiers of the 170th IBCT remain on Baumholder. By mid December to early January, the remainder of the Soldiers will have departed for other assignments or will have been absorbed by incoming units to Baumholder. Raschke highlighted the accomplishments of the brigade and thanked the Baumholder community, German and military, for the great support they provided to the Soldiers and families

Winter weather driving Standards? by 1st Lt. Aaron Cohn and Senior Airman William Barker 86th Vehicle Readiness Squadron

Germany is known for its extreme winters. Road conditions can change drastically throughout the night leading to hazardous driving conditions in the morning. Preparing ahead and being knowledgeable about the hazards winter brings is safe and smart. Every year there are numerous accidents due to inclement weather; the majority of these accidents happen during winter months and can be prevented. The 86th Vehicle Readiness Squadron maintains the snow removal and deicing fleet for Ramstein, Landstuhl, Vogelweh and Einsiedlerhof. The squadron is a critical partner ensuring the roads, runway and aircraft are free of ice and snow. The following items are some helpful tips the 86th VRS has gathered from experience and would like to pass on:

driving in snow, heavy rain or when roads are suspected of “black ice” due to freezing temperatures. Cruise control systems are designed for normal road conditions and can be hazardous on slick roads.

What standards?

Skidding: Bridges or overpasses, shaded patches, and infrequently traveled roads are often the first to ice over. If you find yourself losing traction, don’t panic. Avoid sudden changes of speed or direction. If you do begin to slide, turn the wheel into the direction of the skid and gently depress the brake pedal until the vehicle regains traction.

by Chief Master Sgt. Phillip Robinson 8th Fighter Wing

Snow equipmenT: Avoid passing snow plows and salt trucks and allow more space between yourself and snow removal equipment. Be mindful of the fact that the drivers of these vehicles have limited visibility. Also, when in front of snow equipment, avoid sudden braking because big trucks need room to slow down.

Snow TireS: According to a German Federal law passed in November 2010, you are required to have Winter or all-season tires marked “M+S” when driving with snow or ice on the ground. Although the law does not specify dates when snow tires are required, the German rule of thumb is “von O bis O,” which means from October to Easter (Ostern in German). Driving without appropriate tires in inclement weather may result in an accident or a heavy fine.

anTiFreeze: Antifreeze is an essential part of your car’s winter protection. Check your vehicle’s engine coolant and over-flow reservoir levels. Make sure the level is full and the mixture is close to 50/50.

wiper BladeS: An often overlooked, yet very important component to safe driving are your wiper blades. They are cheap to replace and a set of good blades can greatly improve visibility crucial to safe driving.

BelTS and hoSeS: Check your belts and hoses for excessive wear or looseness and replace them as needed.

wiper Fluid: Be sure your washer fluid is full of commercially made wiper fluid designed to resist freezing. Straight water will freeze and possibly damage your car’s windshield washer system. Driving Distance: It is important to maintain a safe driving distance between vehicles so you have room to maneuver. A good guide is the three-second rule, staying three seconds behind the car in front of you. This can be determined when passing a stationary object. During inclement weather, double the distance to six seconds. If you find yourself braking a lot, add more space. SaFeTy CheCk: Take the time to perform a safety walk around of your vehicle, inspecting your lights and tires. Clean snow and dirt from your windshield and headlights. It’s important to both see and be seen. Also, remove any other loose snow as it may blind you or other drivers at highway speeds. CruiSe ConTrol: Do not use cruise control when

Car heaTing: Make sure your car’s heater, defroster and rear defroster are all functioning properly. emergenCy equipmenT: Good items to keep in your car include an ice scraper, snowbrush, jumper cables, flash light, extra batteries, flares, first aid kit, basic hand tools and blankets. Car BaTTery: Be sure your battery and alternator are working properly. If your car battery was struggling during the summer be sure to get it tested as it’s even more likely your car won’t start in cold weather. Prepare for colder months ahead.

kunSan air BaSe, South korea — Recently, I was asked the difference between a good NCO and a great NCO. Well, I answered the question as best I could, but failed to mention “standards.” You see, a good NCO sets his sights on just meeting standards, while a great NCO is continually trying to exceed standards and motivates his Airmen to do the same. Webster’s Dictionary defines the word “standard” as something established by authority, custom or general consent as a model or example. It also defines it as a measure of quantity, weight, extent, value or quality. Do you prepare for your PT test not knowing what it will take to pass? Do you perform an operational check on a jet without knowing the technical order pass-fail limits? Do you get a tattoo not knowing what is acceptable per Air Force Instruction 36-2903, “Dress and Personal Appearance of Air Force Personnel?” Recently, the Air Force published Air Force Instruction 1-1, “Air Force Standards.” It took guidance from different sources and put it into one instruction that we can all easily refer to. This instruction covers standards that have been around for decades and added new standards that deal with issues that face our Airmen today such as social media, the wingman concept, resiliency, etc. It also serves as a great tool during official feedback sessions. Now why is this important? As a custom or example, Airmen need to reflect a professional image that encompasses proper dress and behavSee STANDARDS, Page 7

Social Norms kicks off at Ramstein by Capt. Crystal McLeod Ramstein ADAPT program coordinator This fall, more than 1,500 Ramstein Airmen have been identified to participate in the second “Social Norms” research survey taking place on Ramstein in October. Earlier in spring, 924 Ramstein Airmen took the initial survey to determine the baseline alcohol use amongst Airmen aged 18 to 24. The goal of this research study is to show Airmen

The goal of this research study is to show Airmen the difference between “perceived” alcohol misuse and “actual” alcohol misuse in the 86th Airlift Wing.

the difference between “perceived” alcohol misuse and “actual” alcohol misuse in the 86th Airlift Wing. The campaign focuses on decreasing excessive alcohol use among active-duty Airmen. It will enhance work and community resiliency and change the attitudes and perceptions related to alcohol misuse. In addition, at the end of the survey, each member will see how their drinking patterns compare with their peers. Social Norms research shows that when messages about actual norms are delivered repeatedly, heavyalcohol use declines. Starting in November, “norming messages”

will be posted throughout Ramstein Air Base with the data that was provided from the spring 2012 survey. These messages will center on the three pillars of ARI prevention and responsible alcohol consumption from the ARI Campaign — mission focus, taking care of each other and personal accountability — under the theme of “No ARIs…no excuses…drink responsibly.” In the summer of 2013, a final research survey will be used to see how much Social Norming has improved the culture at Ramstein. Social Norms surveys are being conducted weekly at the Ramstein In-processing Line in Bldg. 2402. For questions regarding this initiative or about responsible drinking, contact the Ramstein Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention and Treatment Program at 479-2390 or 06371-46-2390.

Active-duty Airmen can pass education benefits to dependents by Debbie Gildea Air Force Personnel Center Public Affairs JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas — More than 86,000 active-duty Air Force members have transferred Post 9/11 GI Bill education benefits to dependent family members since the benefit transfer program was implemented in August 2009. However, many who did so were unfamiliar with the process and ended up in a difficult situation, while others want to transfer benefits but hesitate to do so because of commitments that come with the program. Understanding how the transfer of education benefits

program works starts with understanding who is eligible for Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits, said Master Sgt. Joseph Cummings, AFPC education services adviser. Anyone on active duty for at least 90 days from Sept. 9, 2011, through today (with honorable service disposition) is eligible for Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits. Benefit amounts vary depending on how long a member served after 9/11, and what kind of education they seek (e.g., undergraduate degree, graduate degree or certification program). Members have 15 years after retirement to use their benefits. Being eligible for Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits, however, does not mean an Airman is eligible to transfer those benefits.

The Air Force program is tied to retention, so only those on active duty after Aug. 1, 2009, are eligible for transfer of education benefits. In addition, Airmen must have at least six years of service (active duty and/or selected Reserve) as of the date of election, and they must agree to an additional four-year active duty service commitment, said Cummings. “We frequently get applications from members who are about to retire, but that could be too late unless you are willing and able to commit to another four years,” said Cummings. “Eligibility is an issue because if you’re approaching your high year of tenure, you may not be able to commit to four more years.

Advance planning is critical.” Eligible members who want to transfer their benefits must also understand the application process and ensure they accomplish required tasks on time. “Some people thought they applied, but they didn’t sign the statement of understanding, so their application didn’t go through,” Cummings said. “Others didn’t follow through on Total Force Service Center instructions within the 14 day window and their application expired. Some applicants never received their instructions from the TFSC because their email address was wrong. “When you apply, it’s important that you double check all the information to See BENEFITS, Page 8

service life. This allows us to turn it into green space for future construction.” Even though the building has been vacant for some time, Hyde was the first to put a dent in the building, starting the demolition process. “The area is prime real estate,” said 1st Lt. Harrizon Sanchez, 86th Civil Engineer Squadron construction management chief. “It won’t be long until something takes the space.” The demolition of the building is scheduled to be complete in March 2013. The old BX was built in the 1950s and was the first shopping center on Ramstein.

before, during and after deployment. “We would not be where we are now without the help of others and I would like to thank those that have contributed to the success of the Bayonet Brigade, both during our de-activation and throughout the deployment,” he said. Raschke pointed out that many of the mayors of the local towns made a special effort to assist the families of deployed Soldiers. “Our local community leaders have always provided tremendous support for both our Soldiers and their families,” he said.

The data collected will assist in the determination of COLA paid to members in their country of assignment. The survey is only for service members stationed at 13 locations in Germany: Ansbach, Kalkar, Bremerhaven, KMC, Buechel, Spangdahlem, Garmisch, Stuttgart, Geilenkirchen, Vilseck-Grafenwöhr, Heidelberg, Wiesbaden and Hohenfels. The service member also must not be living in the barracks and have been on station for at least three months. Although participation in this survey is voluntary, maximum response is encouraged so the data will be an accurate representation of the service member’s country of assignment. To prepare for the survey, service members should determine where they purchased groceries, clothing, household furnishings, entertainment, communications and transportation.

AF leaders encourage energy savings Purple Heart in latest ‘Letter to Airmen’ Sept. 28 WASHINGTON — Secretary of the Air Force Michael B. Donley, Chief of Staff of the Air Force Gen. Mark A. Welsh III and Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force James A. Roy issued a tri-signature “Letter to Airmen” Sept. 28. As part of Energy Action Month this October, the Air Force’s top three leaders reminded Airmen that individual efforts do have an effect on energy savings. “October is Energy Action Month for our nation. To emphasize each of our roles in energy savings, the Air Force has adopted ‘I am Air Force Energy’ as our theme. As energy consumers, we can impact the Air Force’s fuel and electricity use every day — by flying our aircraft at energy efficient altitudes, not letting vehicles or equipment idle, or simply turning off the lights. While individual efforts may seem small, they can have a big impact when multiplied across the Air Force,” the letter states. The letter can be read online at www.ramstein.af.mil. To assist in creating awareness of EAM, SAF/PAO has created a toolkit with talking points, a suggested activity list, a campaign plan and a commander’s call speech. Airmen can view the toolkit components on the Air Force Portal. For more information on the Air Force Energy Program, visit www.safie.hq.af.mil/energy/index.asp and www. facebook.com/AirForceEnergy.

Avoid theft by securing your vehicle Story and photo illustration by Staff Sgt. Travis Edwards 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Every 10 minutes, 14 cars are stolen in the U.S. In the KMC, the number is significantly smaller, but the chance is still there. There are still people who are willing and waiting for an opportunity to smash a window or completely steal your means of transportation; are you next? About 43 members of the KMC will have their valuables taken from them this month. “A majority of the criminals are preying on the ‘easy targets,’ vehicles and houses left unsecured or unlocked,” said Master Sgt. Wichard Ho, 569th U.S. Forces Police Squadron NCO in charge of operations. “Securing your doors, windows and any entryways are the best methods to prevent from becoming a victim of circumstance.”

He added that vehicles with valuables left in plain sight are often targeted as well. “Remove items from plain view, it is too easy for someone to simply walk by and see a purse or a military-style backpack left in the passenger seat; now they have a target,” Wichard said. “Bottom line, don’t leave anything to steal, don’t make yourself a target of opportunity.” To help police these situations, the 569th USFPS has initiated a new program called Police Intelligence Operations. PIO is designed to track, analyze crime data, identify high crime areas, trends and predict where the next crime spree will most likely occur. “The goals are to decrease the vulnerability of those areas, possibly catch the criminals in the act and reduce the crime from these areas in the KMC,” said Tech. Sgt. Victor Morales, 569th USFPS NCO in charge of antiterrorism and

force-protection measures. For more information on the programs in your area, send an email to: Vogelweh: vogelwehneighborhoodwatch@ yahoo.com Landstuhl: neighborhoodwatch.lrmc@live.com “Like” our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ KMCNeighborhoodWatch. “Everyone can help by getting involved in the neighborhood watch programs on Ramstein, Vogelweh and Landstuhl,” Morales said. “Look out for each other and your neighbor; our military members are our first-line of defense against these criminals.” The 569th USFPS recommends members and families contact their insurance companies to find out if and ensure that all their valuables are covered.

With a focus on both her clients and her co-workers, Arnett was recently recognized for her work with the U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern’s Army Substance Abuse Program. Arnett, who has worked in the ASAP office on Landstuhl for the past two years, was named the Army Center for Substance Abuse Programs 2012 Clinical Director of the Year. “Ms. Arnett’s ingenuity, work ethic and high performance set the standard for ASAP Europe,” wrote Lt. Col. Lars Zetterstrom in his nomination letter. “Her experience, skill and dedication to the ASAP and the garrison contributed directly to mission readiness.”

Arnett said she was thrilled to get the award and that the ASAPs in Europe were in the spotlight. “I am a person that jumps in and is motivated and am excited that Europe is setting the pace for all the ASAPs,” said Arnett, who is a licensed clinical social worker and certified alcohol and drug counselor. “That has been my goal to see Europe shine.” Another goal of hers was to build a team of people who were excited about coming to work. “I want people to want to come to work here,” Arnett said. “If you get out of bed and dread coming here, that is going to be reflected in your work…If I take anything away from the clinical director of the year award, it is that I feel that I have succeeded in creating that kind of environment where I have protected people and insulated them from things that would have caused burdens and stress to their day.”

Co-worker Lorraina Nyanza, a licensed social worker and substance abuse counselor, said Arnett’s passion for her work makes her stand out. “She is in this field to make a difference,” she said. “She is professional, inspirational, transparent, compassionate,

honest, has no hidden agendas and is a listener, which is very unique for a leader.” Nyanza also said Arnett has a great balance between professionalism and humor. “Her sense of humor is intoxicating,” she said. “She has a great balance between humor and seriousness that

makes her very approachable and professional in a context that is genuine.” Arnett will soon be leaving the ASAP office and begin a new position with the Europe Regional Medical Command in their Care Provider Support Program, which helps provide support for health care workers.

Also, demanding perfection from yourself so you can assure you will exceed the standard every time. I’ve heard from time to time what we allow in our presence becomes the standard. As supervisors we can-

not make excuses for our Airmen and allow them to ignore our Air Force core values. We would be doing them a disservice and putting their careers in jeopardy. So know, abide and exceed the standard for yourselves and your Airmen so the next time someone thanks you for your service, you will walk away sharing the same pride they have for you!

409th CSB provides European contracting support by Rachel Clark 409th Contracting Support Brigade The 21st Theater Sustainment Command’s contracting partner, the 409th Contracting Support Brigade, has a geographic footprint that spans across 104 countries and is the Expeditionary Contracting Command’s support link on the European and African continents. “One of the biggest challenges for contracting officers is providing support to some challenging logistical requirements,” said Col. William Bailey, commander of the 409th CSB and principal assistant responsible for contracting — Europe. “This is true while providing sustainment contracting services in our garrison environment or contingency contracting in a deployed environment,” said Bailey. “Whether we are contracting for mules to cross the mountains of Afghanistan, camels in the Middle East or trains, planes and cars in Europe, we have to do so in a fashion that will ensure we meet our customer’s requirements and enable them to accomplish their mission on time.” The 409th consists of one battalion and nine contingency contracting teams spread across Germany that provide support to 15 Army installations. In the Ukraine, Capt. Kelley Smith, 649th Contingency Contracting Team, Kaiserslautern, was part of the support team for the Joint Chiefs of Staff exercise, Rapid Trident 2012. The exercise included 1,394 people from 16 nations. A total of 156 U.S. participants worked alongside exercise partners training on international security assistance force-focused peacekeeping tasks in field training and command post exercises. According to Smith, synchronizing multiple exercise funding sources provided challenges to established contracting planning timelines. The mission was successfully executed and served as an example for complex expeditionary contracting operations. In Belgium, Roland Becker, a contracting specialist in the Regional Contracting Office Benelux, supported the 68th Normandy invasion commemoration by writing contracts for food, generators, light stands, latrines, and fencing for the event that supported more than 200 military members who were on temporary duty to Normandy, France, for the World War II D-Day commemoration. At the Theater Contracting Center in Kaiserslautern, contracting officer Anita McLain works on a component of a total maintenance contract for the Kaiserslautern area. This large-scale contract, which awarded more than $400 million in services, covers everything from grounds maintenance, equipment maintenance and repair, as well as construction projects for the various bases. McLain said it can be a challenge on both ends, as none of the three on-site military personnel are contin-

gency contract specialists. “What they lack in knowledge they make up for in the willingness to cooperate and support,” McLain said of the Soldiers who work in conjunction with contracting specialists assigned as reachback for operations. “They have to deal with the language barriers while interfacing with the contractors on the existing contracts and they do all the leg work when gathering the information necessary to submit the packages for new requirements.” In Latvia supporting Saber Strike 2012, contracting officers Maj. Paul Tomcik and Staff Sgt. John Manurs from the 606th Senior CCT, Kaiserslautern, work multiple contracts for fuel, life support areas, rental vehicles, bus transportation, and material and handling equipment. “Support to exercises such as Saber Strike provides contingency contracting officers the opportunity to work in a dynamic environment where we can offer contracting solutions from cradle-to-grave in a short span of time,” Tomcik said. Meanwhile in Cameroon, another team from the 606th SCCT worked through challenges normally associated with developing contracts in Africa. “This exercise brought plenty of challenges but we were able to meet them head on and accomplish the mission on time and under budget,” said Maj. Mark Corn, 606th SCCT, Kaiserslautern, of African

Endeavor 2012 in Douala, Cameroon. “We had continuous support from the U.S. Embassy in Yaoundé, the host nation and reachback with the 903rd Contingency Contracting Battalion. Overall, more than 200 coalition and African partners were able to test the interoperability of their communications equipment and receive valuable training during the exercise,” said Corn. Sgt. 1st Class Cathleen Stadler-Frazier, 409th CSB operations and plans noncommissioned officer, who recently returned from a deployment in Djibouti, Africa, said the key to getting the job done is teaching the locals how the Army does business. “While deployed to countries like Djibouti, where resources are limited, we educated vendors of small businesses how to do business with the government,” Stadler-Frazier said. Whether it’s supporting exercises including Saber Strike 2012, African Endeavor 2012, Rapid Trident 12, or providing theater sustainment, Command Sgt. Maj. Bentura Fernandez, 409th CSB command sergeant major, said the 409th CSB plans and executes efficient, effective and agile contracting support for U.S. Army Europe, “Not a day goes by where a 409th Soldier isn’t deployed providing contracting service to the Army. The 409th CSB is going to be ready to provide contracting support anytime, anywhere,” Fernandez said.

ATAAPS training held at Ramstein by 2nd Lt. Kay Nissen 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Training for an automated time attendance and production system, enabling civilian employees to input their own time cards, was conducted on Ramstein and Vogelweh starting Tuesday and ends today for all civilian employees and their supervisors. This new automated system will require each civilian to have a

CAC card to submit their electronic timesheet. The Department of Defense initiative provides an automated, single source input for reporting and collecting time and attendance and labor data. “ATAAPS makes it easier to consolidate time and attendance information to interfacing payroll and accounting systems,” said 2nd Lt. Adrianna Perez, 86th Comptroller Squadron financial services flight commander.

Additional advantages to ATAAPS include time saved with labor input and error corrections. Training will be required for all key players this week with the system scheduled to go live Oct. 21. It will not be until the week of Oct. 29 when parties will use this system for the first time. There will be training from 1 to 2 p.m. today at Hercules Theater.

Culture of Trust comes to LRMC

T

he focus for hospital staff at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center this month is trust. Senior leaders, supervisors and employees will devote more than 13,000 training hours in support of a Culture of Trust program initiated by the Army surgeon general. The overarching goal of the initiative is to create an organization employees are proud to work for and to provide quality health care to patients, beneficiaries, stakeholders, co-workers and the community at large. Through this program, the Army Medical Department is able to standardize the patient experience, reduce inconsistencies and improve the workplace environment. To help realize this goal, LRMC staff will be attending a general overview session or a supervisory session to help understand the most basic and essential elements of both personal and professional success — trust. The focus is on valuing one another as individuals and not as components of a large bureaucratic machine. In speaking on the subject of trust, Army Chief of Staff Gen. Raymond Odierno said, “Trust is the bedrock of our honored profession — trust between each other, trust between Soldiers and leaders, trust between Soldiers and their families and the Army, and trust with the American people.” That trust also includes Army medicine. The combat Soldier is willing to risk everything because they know that on the field of battle, the Army medic will be there. Army medicine has a sacred duty to replicate this level of trust at every juncture and with every interaction, every moment, every day. Since launching in September 2010, the program has infused all outlets of Army medicine to ensure patients receive quality healthcare while clinicians remain passionate about their organization. To gauge the effectiveness of the program, the Culture of Trust task force measures key indicators such as patient outcomes, employee satisfaction and

customer service. Army medicine believes that trust happens when clinicians prove their commitment, capability and competence to a patient, thus gaining his or her respect and confidence. The Army’s trust behaviors are known as A.C.T.I.V.E., and they include: ACCOUNTABILITY is being honest, taking responsibility for performance and behavior, and being answerable to yourself and others. CONGRUENCY is when the actions of individuals and organizations are consistent with their philosophy and values. Congruent individuals and organizations are viewed as: practicing what they preach, walking the talk, actions matching words, following through, and being sincere or real. TRANSPARENCY is freely sharing information and removing barriers to open communication and understanding intent and desired outcomes. It is also actively working to rid the organization of gossip and the rumor mill. INTEGRITY is doing what is right legally, ethically and morally at all times, regardless of whether or not someone is watching and despite the risk or reward. VOICE is my obligation to use my voice to defend against injustices, to cause reconsideration of ideas, stimulate thinking and explore innovative ideas. ENGAGEMENT is being actively involved, eager and dedicated to accomplishing the mission. It is when employees are passionate about their work and have a personal and emotional investment in the success of the services or products delivered.

second Tuesday of each payroll week for certification.

BENEFITS, from Page 3

ensure it’s accurate and follow the instructions you receive from the TFSC,” Cummings said. “If you don’t get approval confirmation from the TFSC, you may have missed something in the instructions.” Another common problem occurs for applicants who transfer all of their benefits to a single dependent. Benefits are transferred in month increments, so an Airman with 36 months of education benefits can transfer all 36 months to a single dependent, equally among all dependents, or only a month to each, as they choose. Then, if something in their life changes, they can adjust the number of months each dependent receives. “If you transfer all your benefits to one child and that child chooses to not use them for whatever reason, you won’t be able to transfer them to anyone else,” Cummings said. “Your only option will be to retrieve your benefits and use them yourself, which you can always do later anyway. If you want to make sure one of your dependents can later use the benefit, you probably need to make sure when you apply for the program that you transfer at least one month to each dependent.” Many Airmen who intend to use the benefit themselves after they retire or separate don’t apply for transfer of education benefits. In some cases, that has sad consequences. “We get calls from Mortuary Affairs at Dover (Air Force Base, Del.) sometimes. It’s already a sad situation if Dover’s calling, but it’s really heartbreaking if a member who died didn’t transfer any benefits to a dependent,” he said. “You know, you can always retrieve the benefits for yourself later, but if you aren’t here later, it’s too late to for your dependents to be able to use your benefits.” Members who transfer benefits and voluntarily separate before completing the four year commitment may have to repay the government for any benefits already used by their dependents, and dependents would not be able to use the remainder of the benefits, so members who plan to separate or retire should carefully consider the implications before applying for transfer of educational benefits. However, transfer of educational benefits is a perfect opportunity for members who plan to re-enlist or make the Air Force a career. “If you’re planning to stay in for the next four years or more anyway, then the active duty service commitment isn’t really a factor,” Cummings said. “Plus, if something happens that prevents you from fulfilling that commitment, like a medical discharge, your dependents will likely still be able to use the transferred benefits and you won’t have to repay the government for benefits they already used.” Eligible Airmen can apply for transfer of educational benefits through the MilConnect website at www.dmdc.osd.mil/milconnect. “If you decide to apply, remember that all actions including submitting the signed statement of understanding must be accomplished within 14 days of applying. If you don’t complete all actions, your application will be rejected and you will have to start over later,” Cummings said. “And, ADSC dates are not retroactive to the first application attempt, so if you decide to reapply a year later, that’s when your service commitment will begin.” For more information, visit https://mypers.af.mil and enter “Post 9/11 GI Bill” or “9083” in the search window. Potential applicants can also send questions to Cummings and the AFPC education services team at afpc.dpsitedu@us.af.mil.

2012 USEUCOM HOLIDAY MAILING DEADLINE DATES Below are the 2012 recommended USEUCOM holiday mail deadline dates for postal customers assigned to the European theater of operations. These dates are for mail originating in Europe and destined to locations in the United States. Stateside mailers sending letters and packages to European APO/FPO/DPO addresses use similar deadline dates. SPACE AVAILABLE MAIL (SAM) » Nov. 26 PARCEL AIRLIFT MAIL (PAL) » Dec. 3 PRIORITY MAIL » Dec. 10 FIRST CLASS LETTERS AND CARDS » Dec. 10 EXPRESS MAIL MILITARY SERVICE » Dec. 18 “USAFE postal patrons should plan ahead and mail early to ensure their letters, cards, and packages arrive to their intended U.S. destinations in time for the holidays,” said Lionel Rivera, U.S. Air Forces in Europe/Air Force Africa Postal branch public affairs officer. “Customers can avoid the historical long lines at the post office when they mail early and can take advantage of using the cheaper, although slower, space available mail service military post offices offer in Europe.” Space available mail service takes longer to arrive to end destination and moves on a space

available basis once it arrives in the states. If you want faster service, consider using priority mail or express mail military service. It costs more but these classes of mail get preferred and or expedited service. Note, some USAFE APOs do not offer EMMS. Almost all mail accepted at military post offices in Europe is flown to the United States on commercial aircraft. Once mail arrives stateside, depending on the service you selected, it’s transported based on the service you paid for. “Keep in mind, packages transiting through the mail stream are handled numerous times, therefore proper packaging is very important,” said Rivera. The below mailing tips are provided to help ensure packages arrive safely and undamaged. USPS MAILINg TIPS • Print addresses clearly (Print or type clearly with a pen or permanent marker). Avoid commas, period, or other punctuation — it helps your mailpiece speed through USPS automated processing equipment. • Include all address elements (apartment numbers, suite numbers, directional information for streets, etc.). • Put the delivery and return addresses on only one side of the package. • Select a box that is strong enough to protect the contents. Leave space for cushioning inside the carton. • Package contents with shredded or rolled

newspaper, bubble wrap, or Styrofoam peanuts. Plain air-popped popcorn is also good for cushioning; it’s inexpensive and environmentally friendly. Pack tightly to avoid shifting. • Always use tape that is designed for shipping, such as pressure-sensitive tape, nylon-reinforced tape, paper tape, or glass-reinforced pressuresensitive tape. • Stuff glass and fragile hollow items, like vases, with newspaper or packing material to avoid damage due to shock. When mailing framed photographs, take the glass out of the frame and wrap it separately. • Remove alkaline batteries from toys and other electronic items. • Do not use gift wrapping paper, string, masking tape, or cellophane tape. • Place an index card inside the package that contains the sender’s address and the recipient’s address along with a list of the contents. This will help postal employees to re-pack boxes that were improperly wrapped and came apart during transport ensuring that the package is either sent to its destination or back to the sender. • Use Express Mail and Priority Mail boxes, envelopes, and tubes your post office provides. Contact your local postmaster for additional information on how mail is dispatched and received at your location, and for advice on the best service to use based on your mailing needs.

The RSO staff and volunteers worked tirelessly to make this happen,” Franklin said. The center will benefit all Unit Ministry Teams in the KMC, who are an integral part of the support and services offered to the community, said Jeffrey Crisp, deputy to the garrison commander. “We can’t do our job as a garrison without all of you,” Crisp told the crowd gathered during the lunchtime event. “We need the UMTs to make this one garrison family.” Other organizations, such as family readiness groups, can also use the space for their activities. “We still have a few finishing touches. But we are up and running and excited to serve the Soldiers, civilian workers and families of the KMC,” Franklin said. For more information about the center, call 493-4152 or 0631-34064152.

10th AAMDC recognizes NCO importance at ‘Backbone’ Dinner by Sgt. Kyle Johnson 10th AAMDC Public Affairs

N

COs have long been referred to as the “backbone” of the U.S. Army, forming the support structure that holds all the separate pieces together. To honor that legacy and to maintain it for the future, the 10th Army Air and Missile Defense Command recently honored its own distinguished group of enlisted leaders at a special banquet. A Sept. 27 gathering at The Rough restaurant in nearby Mackenbach served as the venue for the event, hosted by Command Sgt. Maj. Darrin L. Jefferies, the top enlisted Soldier for the 10th AAMDC. The Soldiers were joined by spouses and many others who had come together to build not only unit cohesion, but to better appreciate the integral role NCOs play in unit success and the development of their Soldiers. The main speaker for the evening was Sgt. Maj. Chad A. McNeish, the operations sergeant major for the 5th Battalion, 7th Artillery Regiment. His speech touched on the importance of the corps of NCOs and also some of the history and symbolism behind the “Creed of the Noncommissioned Officer.” McNeish said he was pleased with the good crowd at the event, noticing that many of the movers and shakers within the 10th AAMDC were in attendance to acknowledge the NCO impact.

“This is a group of the most powerful noncommissioned officers within this organization, and together we could accomplish anything,” McNeish said afterward. The banquet was coordinated by Sgt. 1st Class Derek Salley, a fire control NCO for the 10th AAMDC. “Planning and coordination took about a month to complete. Finding a proper location, gathering RSVPs and coordinating for technical support were our greatest challenges,” Salley said. A video was shown highlighting photos of accomplishments the 10th AAMDC has logged in recent months, with special emphasis on the role played by the unit’s many NCOs in achieving those successes. Within the video were interviews of selected senior NCOs being asked, among other things, about the pride a Soldier feels in being an NCO and how that pride is shown. For Master Sgt. Kelly Stransky, the NCO in charge of personnel and manpower, her answer on the paramount NCO mission was simple and to the point. “To lead from the front, show that we are a brotherhood and sisterhood, and to set the example,” she said. Leaders in the unit said the dinner is just an extension of several important Army-wide initiatives that highlight the importance of strong leadership, how standards are still important, and the role each Soldier must play in helping to maintain a competent and professional Army. Sgt. Maj. Julio Matta, the ser-

geant major of logistics for the 10th AAMDC, said the decision to hold the dinner had been brewing over the last couple of months. Regardless of when the go-ahead for the event was given, Matta said the logic behind it is what really matters. “We often sit and talk about the things we see that are not exactly the way we want them to be. This was something to put some positive energy into making them the way they ought to be,” Matta said.

Jefferies and other senior leaders expressed hope that the event can become an annual tradition that will continue to build lasting bonds among NCOs and also serve to strengthen the unit. Matta agreed. “The NCO Backbone Dinner is about the things that matter the most. It’s about growing stronger as a team and leveraging our experience as leaders from all different backgrounds,” he said.

Internal ESOHCAMP for the KMC The next Environmental, Safety and Occupational Health Compliance Assessment and Management Program for Air Force units in the KMC are scheduled for Oct. 22 through 26. All Air Force units located on Ramstein, Vogelweh, Einsiedlerhof, Kapaun and Bann are eligible to be assessed. ESOHCAMP assessments are conducted annually. These assessments help commanders at all levels assess their unit’s compliance with all federal, state and local environmental, safety and occupational health laws and regulations — both U.S. and host nation. Additionally, ESOHCAMP assessors will execute the compliance assessment portion of the Environmental Management System. The assessment identifies findings wherever base operations are not in compliance with the regulatory requirements. The findings pinpoint deficiencies and help identify solutions. From this, we can evaluate our strengths and weaknesses in order to build stronger, more effective programs that not only save money and resources, but that also ensure maximum protection of human health and the environment.

During the assessment period, squadron commanders and superintendents should have personnel on-site that are knowledgeable with the environmental, safety and occupational health issues and programs under their control, to provide escort assistance for the ESOHCAMP team as required, and provide access to lockers, files, cabinets and locked/secured areas. An ESOHCAMP team badge will identify the assessors. ESOHCAMP team members will schedule appointments during the week of the assessment, but in some cases they may show up at your unit with little or no notice. The team of approximately 20 people will start with the assessment after an in-brief. The team will compile the checklist results into a report that will be provided to senior leadership of the three wings here. For questions regarding the ESOHCAMP assessment, call the 86th Civil Engineer Squadron’s Environmental section at 4805086/7712. Please help us make this a successful assessment and start preparing now. (by 86th Civil Engineer Squadron)

KMC Onstage presents ‘Hairspray’ KMC Onstage’s production of “Hairspray” will bring the big laughs, big music and big hair. It’s 1962 and spunky Baltimore teenager Tracy Turnblad has a dream. More than anything, she wants to dance on the televised “The Corny Collins Show.” Despite her “pleasantly plump” appearance, Tracy is selected for the show by Corny Collins himself. Tracy becomes an overnight celebrity, launches a campaign to integrate the show, falls in love with local heartthrob Link Larkin, defends her over the top hairstyle, becomes spokesperson for a local dress shop, organizes a protest rally, and gets hauled off to jail. More than a big, brassy, fun musical, “Hairspray” is a family show that highlights the racial injustices of 1960s America and promotes tolerance in all its forms. You’ll tap your toes to the beat as Tracy and her friends battle high school bullies, racism, and enemies everywhere of big girls with big hair. “Hairspray” is based on the 1988 John Waters film of the same name with 1960s style dance and motown music by Marc Shaiman and lyrics by Scott Wittman and Shaiman. Samantha Lightle plays an exuberant Tracy Turnblad, and David Dittmer shines as Edna Turnblad. Bratty, no-talent Amber Von Tussle (Nicole Hatch) and her mother, Velma Von Tussle (Karin Asselstine), are Tracy’s delightfully despicable adversar-

ies. Penny Pingleton, Tracy’s innocent and naive best friend, is played by Audrey Daly. Staff Sgt. Nicholas Perez is Tracy’s heartthrob love interest, Link Larkin. Motormouth Maybelle (Rochelle Jones) is the owner of a downtown record shop, and Michael Fargas plays her son Seaweed J. Stubbs. Wilbur Turnblad (Tim Fiscus) is Tracy’s father and owner of the Har-DeHar Hut joke shop. In all, more than 30 cast and crew from the KMC are rehearsing long hours in preparation for this popular musical. This team of active-duty Soldiers and Airmen, Department of Defense civilians, local nationals, and students are going all out to deliver a performance the audience will not soon forget. “Hairspray delivers a strong message,” said director Jim Sohre. “It’s about equality and tolerance and accepting others for who they are.” Show dates and times are: Oct. 19 to 21 and Oct. 25 to 28. Show times start at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 19, 20, 25, 26 and 27, and at 3 p.m. on Oct. 21, 27 and 28. Tickets are $14 for adults and $12 for students. The show is expected to be a sell-out, so get your tickets early. Tickets can be purchased online at https://webtrac.mwr.army.mil/webtrac/ kaiserslauternrectrac.html or through the Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation One Stop at 06371-861780.

Everyone has a sponsor story. The good, the bad and the ugly. We all have one and have all heard them. There are horror stories out there that are as diverse as the Air Force itself. The bottom line unfortunately is, not all Airmen are treated equally when it comes to sponsorship. My family and I have a sponsor story that can hardly be beat. Germany was our seventh assignment, but our first overseas with children (and two high school girls, at that). We received it Sept. 1, 2010, with a report date of April 20, 2011. There was lots of time to plan, sell our home and worry. Not 24 hours after receiving our orders, my mind was swimming with questions, especially about our initial arrival and how quickly I could get our daughters enrolled in school.

Enter Master Sgt. Amy Winger, our sponsor. Transatlantic phone calls, Facebook and email — we employed all means of communication. By the end of the first month, she knew as much about my family as a close friend. Yes, she asked that many questions. The date of departure approached. We visited family before heading to Baltimore. Of course, like many, when you are traveling you lose touch with current events. I heard chatter about an Icelandic volcano and caught brief comments. Never did I think that there was a correlation between something so remote and my future. And as I stood in the MAC terminal in Baltimore, I realized my situation was far from isolated. We stayed in contact with Winger. She gave us updates from Ramstein, providing us with the news on the street and when they may lift the flight restrictions. Apart from that, I gave little thought about what our delay meant to her. I guess, as I reflect, I thought that it simply adjusted the day she would meet us at the terminal. However, when we landed at Ramstein, it became perfectly evident what Winger had been tasked with. As we shuffled our way through the line

at lodging, we witnessed family after family being told that their reservation had been given away because they had not arrived as scheduled and no one had kept them abreast of changes in their itinerary. But not us. As we approached the desk, we anticipated the worse. When we were told that our sponsor had called everyday to adjust our arrival date, we could have wept. Pleasantly, we were handed our keys to TLF. Our first impression of Ramstein, Germany, and the men and women of the KMC was great. I wish I heard positive sponsor stories more. And they aren’t all bad. But it is the unfortunate situations that permeate conversations and leave a lasting mark. It simply does not need to be this way. As an Airman and a wingman, we should accept zero tolerance for a regrettable arrival to Ramstein. No one should find themselves alone after landing at Frankfurt International Airport. If we equate the first impression saying with sponsorship, we want more than anything to make incoming Airmen’s first impression right. This responsibility rests with the sponsor. Maybe you want to pay it forward by being a great sponsor or make PCSing a better experience than what

you had. Either way, the Air Force wants your desire and your talent. The Ramstein Airman & Family Readiness Center wants to help you with your sponsorship duties. We are now offering the class Sponsorship in the KMC as a way to highlight the special considerations and needs that should be addressed when folks PCS here. To give sponsors a general look at sponsorship duties and tools, www. militaryhomefront.com offers online training. A certificate is generated when completed and can be accessed by your unit intro monitor and by the A&FRC. From there, sponsors should schedule themselves for Sponsorship in the KMC so we can pass on KMCspecific issues, policies and points of contact. A friendship bloomed from our sponsorship experience. By having the forethought that she did, Winger went above and beyond in helping my family settle in. Yes, we planned ahead. We did our part. But we had to relinquish some of the details to Winger and trust she would do well by us. She was a sponsoree’s dream. Let’s pay that forward. Let’s truly welcome others to Ramstein.

Bioenvironmental engineering keeps workplace safe by Airman 1st Class Hailey Haux 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs The 86th Aerospace Medicine Squadron’s bioenvironmental engineering flight ensures all Air Force members and employees working in the KMC have a healthy work environment. “The daily operations of the bioenvironmental engineering flight are important to mission accomplishment,” said Maj. Robbie Wheeler, 86th AMDS bioenvironmental engineering flight commander. “The short-term goal is to help ensure that every KMC warrior and their family members are healthy enough to complete the mission.” The bioenvironmental engineering flight performs a number of duties to guarantee their work environment is a healthy place. “We perform surveys that help determine risks such as irritating chemicals and waterborne illness, and use our equipment to analyze any health hazards,” said Airman 1st Class Brian Bigney, 86th AMDS bioenvironmental engineering technician. Not only does a bioenvironmental engineering technician perform gas mask fit tests; they also respond to emergencies such as chemical spills and take water samples on a weekly basis. “Water sampling is one of the biggest things we do,” Bigney said. “We are constantly taking samples to make sure the KMC has clean, uncontaminated water.”

Another part of their job involves making sure any confined spaces have the correct oxygen levels. “We don’t want anyone entering an area that is a hazard to their health,” Bigney said. If an area is found to be hazardous, the bioenvironmental engineering technicians recommend a solution, ranging from changing the process, to implementing workplace controls like industrial ventilation; to telling workers what protective equipment should be used to keep their work environment safe. Working with other agencies on emergency responses puts a different spin on the everyday jobs, said Bigney. “Since we are dealing with hazardous materials, teamwork and communication is crucial,” said Senior Master Sgt. Alvaro Magana, 86th AMDS bioenvironmental engineering flight chief. “We have to be able to respond and talk with each other about what is going on because everyone’s health is at stake.” Ramstein’s bioenvironmental engineering flight has the same procedures as any base in the states; however, one thing that is different is that they have to comply with the host nation requirements, to make sure their codes and standards are met as well. To learn the tricks of the trade, bioenvironmental engineering technicians

go to technical school for three and a half months to train for anything that might come up. “It’s a difficult course,” said Magana. “There are a variety of chemicals they need to learn about. They have to know what’s toxic versus radioactive. In technical school they learn how to protect themselves and others against this broad field of chemicals.” Keeping the KMC safe is a major priority, however; Airmen from the bioenvironmental engineering flight have another long-term goal in mind when they come to work every day. “Our efforts help us keep our military members and their families healthy well beyond their term of service,” said Wheeler. “We prevent avoidable illnesses that might develop long after they’ve left the military.”

Celebrating Hispanic heritage by the 86th Airlift Wing Equal Opportunity Office

N

ational Hispanic Heritage Month celebrates and recognizes the contributions Hispanic citizens have made to American society and culture. The month-long celebration began Sept. 15 and continues through Monday. Sept. 15th is significant because it’s the anniversary of independence for five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico declared its independence on Sept. 16 and Chile on Sept. 18. This year’s National Hispanic Heritage Month theme is “Diversity United, Building America’s Future Today.” Throughout history, Hispanic citizens have contributed tirelessly to the fabric and sustained success of our great nation. In his presidential proclamation, President Barack Obama highlighted Hispanic citizens. “(They) have led movements that pushed our country closer to realizing the democratic ideals of America’s founding documents, and they have served courageously as members of our armed forces to defend those ideals at home and abroad,” he said.

We honor Hispanics like Bernardo de Gálvez, colonial governor of Spanish Louisiana, who secretly sided with American colonists during the Revolutionary War and used his power to help us defeat the British, and Army veteran medical doctor Hector Perez Garcia, who served as an infantry officer, a combat engineer officer and a medical corps officer during World War II. After his service, Garcia opened a medical practice and tended to many Hispanic veterans who were denied treatment by military hospitals. Responding to this injustice, Garcia formed the American GI Forum to guarantee Mexican-Americans the health and education benefits to which they were entitled. Although these are only a couple examples, Hispanic citizens continue on with the tradition of selfless service. According to 2011 Census figures, Hispanics account for 11 percent of our military force. Personnel statistics for the Ramstein community indicate 13 percent of our brothers and sisters in arms identify as Hispanic. We are united in our diversity and we should take a moment to reflect on the contributions Hispanics and all citizens are making toward building a better America.

Kaiserslautern holds October carnival Oct. 19 to 29 by Petra Lessoing 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Kaiserslautern’s traditional “Oktoberkerwe,” or October carnival, will take place Oct. 19 to 29. More than 140 ride owners and vendors will offer their attractions and merchandise at Messeplatz fairgrounds. City representatives will officially open the event by tapping the first keg of beer at 7 p.m. Oct. 19 in the big fest tent. When it’s dark, around 9 p.m., fireworks will be lit to signal the start of the 11-day event. The history of carnivals in Kaiserslautern dates back to March 1571, when Emperor Maximilian II granted the town of Kaiserslautern the right to hold two cattle markets each year. For this event, traveling people came to town, and the traditional

Oktoberkerwe in Kaiserslautern features vendors selling food and candy specialties as well as other merchandise.

“Kerwe,” or carnival, which nowadays is held in May and October, started to develop. Since World War II, the “Lautrer Kerwe” with about 200,000 visitors today, has the reputation of being the biggest folks fest in the Westpfalz. Oktoberkerwe will offer a variety of rides for adults and children. A novelty will be a ride called “The King.” It offers 360 degree turns in three directions in a height of 27 meters. The mobile rollercoaster “Black Hole” is unique in Europe since visitors experience a 420-meter long ride in total darkness. Also available will be the biggest transportable Haunted Mansion. “Down Under” will take people on a trip in the crazy outback on two levels. Visitors of “Crazy Town” will have to find their way in this crazy labyrinth. The 50-meter long Bavarian ride will offer Fun for children and adults. “Breakdance” and “Musik Express” will provide speed and sound. The giant Ferris wheel, the token of each folks fest, will offer a nice view from a height of 40 meters. Children can have fun with skills games and taking rides on ponies, in miniscooters and merrygo-rounds. The skills booths will offer archery, fishing or throwing cans. Beer gardens, bistros and various tents will lure hungry and thirsty visitors. Palatinate and international culinary specialties will be sold at the food booths. The “shopping street” will take visitors on a shopping trip. Until late at night they can buy a variety of merchandise, including jewelry, clothes, curtains, household items, leather goods, spices, arts and crafts items. Family day with reduced prices and special offers until 7 p.m. is scheduled for Oct. 24. The ride owners and vendors want to say Thank You to their customers with a colorful fireworks display around 9 p.m. Oct. 29 to close out the event. The rides will be open 2 p.m. to 11 p.m. each day,

and until midnight Oct. 19 and Saturdays. Some food booths and vendors will start selling their specialties and merchandise at 11 a.m. each day. Traditionally, Sunday shopping will be offered in the city of Kaiserslautern during Oktoberkerwe. The stores in Kaiserslautern will be open 1 to 6 p.m. Oct. 21.

Early intervention key to treating depression by Sabriya Dennis U.S. Army Public Health Command October is National Depression Education and Awareness Month. When feelings of sadness, anxiety or depression linger for long periods of time, it’s possible that a person could be clinically depressed. Depression is a very common condition affecting more than 20 million adults in the U.S. each year. The Army’s suicide rate has increased significantly over the past five years. A diagnosis of depression is a risk factor that can contribute to suicidal thoughts, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Therefore, it is important to be attentive to signs of depression in others as well as oneself. Depression is defined in the “Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders” as having five or more specified symptoms occur during the same two-week period of time and representing a change from the previous level of functioning. As part of the criteria, at least one of the symptoms has to be depressed mood or loss of interest or pleasure. The remaining symptoms are: • Difficulty concentrating, remembering details and making decisions • Energy levels are decreased or feelings of fatigue • Persistent aches, pains, headaches, cramps, or digestive problems • Running into feelings of hopelessness and/or pessimism • Experiencing feelings of guilt, worthlessness and/or helplessness

the same way. The same is true for depression; not everyone experiences or exhibits depressive symptoms in the same manner. The following are common symptoms of depression for various groups: MEN • Fatigue, irritability, sleep problems, violence, reckless behavior and substance abuse WOMEN Feelings of guilt, excessive sleeping, overeating and weight gain Youth Irritability, hostility, quick temperedness, unexplained aches and pain. If left untreated, these symptoms can lead to problems at home and school, or drug abuse. Depression is treatable. Treatment for depression should be sought as early as possible so the individual can return to a healthy lifestyle and minimize the risk of greater illness. Treatment for depression includes the use of antidepressant medications, psychotherapy or a combination of both. If you or someone you know is in a crisis, seek help immediately. Here are some places that could help: • Call 911 • Visit the emergency room or speak to a health care provider • Call 1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255); TTY 1-800-799-4TTY (4889) to speak with a trained counselor. This is a 24-hour toll-free hotline provided by the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

Frankenweenie (PG) — From creative genius Tim Burton (“Alice in Wonderland” and “The Nightmare Before Christmas”) comes “Frankenweenie,” a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life — with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, the entire town all learns that getting a new “leash on life” can be monstrous.

The Bourne Legacy (PG-13) — The narrative architect behind the “Bourne” film series, Tony Gilroy, takes the helm in the next chapter of the hugely popular espionage franchise that has earned almost $1 billion at the global box office: “The Bourne Legacy.” The writer/director expands the “Bourne” universe created by Robert Ludlum with an original story that introduces us to a new hero (Jeremy Renner) whose life-or-death stakes have been triggered by the events of the first three films.

Are You Living With Sciatica Or Back Pain

Advertisement

...WHEN THERE IS A NON-INVASIVE, DRUGLESS SOLUTION? H

aving back and sciatic pain is a miserable – even crippling – condition.

You might not be able to play golf, work, or even sit in the car for a 30-minute drive. It’s almost impossible for anyone around you to understand how you feel. You can’t remember the last time you even had a restful night’s sleep. You may have a condition called “Sciatica” if you’re suffering from any of these annoying conditions. Sciatica is a compression of the sciatic nerve, usually by an L4 or L5 disc herniations. Nothing’s worse than feeling great mentally, but physically feeling held back from life because your back or sciatica hurts and the pain just won’t go away!

Do You Have Any of the Following! • Sharp pains in the back of the leg • Lower Back Pain • Heriated/bulging dises • Numbness or soreness in your legs • Shooting hip or thigh pain • Musele spasm, sprains & strains

Fortunately, if you are suffering from any of these problems, they may be relieved or eliminated with chiropractic adjustments.

“What’s The Chance This Will Work For Me?”

Chiropractic has been around for over a hundred years, and has been used to help everyone from tiny babies to the elderly. Even top sports star and entertainers… like Tiger Woods, Emmitt Smith, Tony Robbins, Joe Montana, Lance Armstrong, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mel Gibson.

These professional athletes have the money to hire any kind of doctors they want, yet they choose to have a chiropractor on their team. Here’s what some of the top medical researchers had to say about chiropractic…

What does this offer include? Everything I normally do in my new patient evaluation.

“Manipulation [chiropractic adjustments], with or without exercise, improved symptoms more than medical care did after both 3 and 12 months.”– British Medical Journal

• A complete neuromuscular examination.

“Chiropractor’s manipulation of the spine was more helpful than any of the following: traction, massage, biofeedback, acupuncture, injection of steroids into the spine and back corsets, and ultrasound.” -- Stanley Bigos, MD, Professor of Orthopedic Surgery This means in just a matter of weeks you could be back on the golf course, enjoying your love life, or traveling again.

Feel the Improvement – and Say “Yes” to Life Again

With my “Back Pain And Sciatica Evaluation” we’ll be able find the problem and then correct it. Think of how you’ll feel in just a few short weeks. See and feel your life change for the better. Start your body on the way to pain-free, normal living. Feel tight joints rest, relax, free up. Feel muscles tied in knots become more supple. Feel strength in your muscles increase. As you begin to see motion returning to your joints, you’re preventing and reducing chances of disability and a crippling future.

The Single Most Important Solution To Your Sciatica and Back Pain

It’s time for you to find out if chiropractic will be your sciatic and back pain solution. For 14 days only, 50€ will get you all the services I normally charge new patients 100€ for!

P.S. You've got too many dreams left undone. Too many special moments waiting to be experienced. Life is too short to let pain slow you down. Don't live another day like this. Call and schedule for your evaluation.

06371-917-717.

• An in-depth consultation about your health and well-being where I will listen…really listen…to the details of your case.

• A thorough analysis of your exam (and x-ray findings when you bring them in) so we can start mapping out your plan to being pain free. • I’ll provide answers to your questions, like… … the best nutritional information proven to help with joint problems. … which position, mattress, and pillow you should use for a good night’s rest. … the foods that can help you and which ones can make you worse. … how to exercise the right way so you aren’t making your pain worse.

Don’t Let Your Sciatica Get Worse

Tim Mick, DC, an associate professor and chair of the Department of Radiology at Northwestern Health Sciences University says… “Untreated, sciatica can lead to a loss of muscle strength and muscle size that may be irreversible. Eventually, there can be problems with gait.” Sciatica can be successfully treated. You can recover. Healthy, pain-free living should be yours. Call today and we can get started with your consultation and exam as soon as there’s an opening in the schedule. Our office is called Praxis White Chiropractic and you can find us at Bahnstrasse 104, in Landstuhl. (Between Penny Markt and German-American Healthcare Center MVZ Westpfalz). Tell the receptionist you’d like to come in for the Back Pain And Sciatica Evaluation before October 26, 2012. I look forward to helping you get rid of your pain so you can start living a healthier, more joyful life.
