86th CES opens house, informs KMC Story and photo by Senior Airman Damon Kasberg 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Families from throughout the KMC gathered at Fire Station 1 Oct. 8 on Ramstein to attend an open house. The event was hosted by the 86th Civil Engineer Squadron to promote Fire Prevention Week. “Fire Prevention Week allows us to get involved with the public,” said Master Sgt. Mark Goenen, 86th CES KMC Fire Emergency Services. “This year’s theme is ‘Hear the Beep Where You Sleep.’ We really want to inform people about their smoke detectors. The batteries in detectors are not forever. If you wait until it’s beeping, it may be too late and not work properly. “Our ultimate goal is to eliminate home fires, but it’s very important for all KMC residents on and off base to think about home-fire safety and incorporate the lessons they learn See FIRE, Page 2

86th FSS caregiver receives Red Cross Lifesaver Award Story and photos by Airman 1st Class Larissa Greatwood 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

Sean Tatum, 86th Force Support Squadron caregiver, stands with the Dalmo family for photos during a Red Cross Lifesaving Award ceremony Oct. 8 on Ramstein. Tatum utilized his Red Cross health and safety skills to dislodge food from Jackson Dalmo’s throat July 1.

In the KMC, caregivers are required to be Red Cross certified to ensure maximum child safety. Fortunately, many caregivers never have to experience a real-life scenario in which they have to apply these skills. However, one 86th Force Support Squadron caregiver’s training was recently put to the test. Sean Tatum, 86th FSS caregiver, received the Red Cross Lifesaver Award Oct. 8 for the actions he took on July 1 to save a child’s life. The Red Cross Lifesaver Award is given to recognize a lifesaving act performed by an individual who utilized skills learned through Red Cross

health and safety training. On the day of the incident during the daily snack time, Jackson Dalmo, who was 16 months old at the time, began showing signs of choking. Tatum’s instinct set in fast as he quickly acted. “All I could think about was, ‘I need to help this boy,’” Tatum said. “His face turned red and he was flailing his arms. I knew I had to do something.” Tatum explained that he performed back blows to dislodge the food and then used the finger-sweep method to remove it from Jackson’s mouth. After the commotion subsided, he informed Jackson’s mother, Stephanie Dalmo, of the incident. “I work in the (Child Development Center) in a different building, and (on that day) Sean came

Feedback is essential to AF integrity


by Lt. Col. John Hansen 86th Comptroller Squadron commander I was going through some old files, and I found a few notes that were written to me on several different occasions by the comptroller of a major command. One letter conveyed his best wishes on my birthday. A second one thanked me and my unit for our hospitality during his recent visit to the base. These letters reminded me how important it is to maintain constant communication at all levels. The letters reminded me of the lost art of written communication. These were not short emails tasking me with a suspense or requesting information; they were handwritten letters that showed he took the time to sit down at his desk and write them longhand, with the singular purpose of providing positive feedback from one professional to another. As I am also in the middle of performing midterm feedback

sessions, they reminded me I should take a great deal of time to carefully prepare the Airman Comprehensive Assessment feedback worksheet, Air Force Form 724. The Air Force specifi cally designed this new feedback form in order to better facilitate a dialogue between a member and supervisor. In fact, this form will need to be routed through the coordination process for members’ enlisted performance reports. In addition to taking the time to complete the form, I sat down with each individual and provided feedback in terms of improvements to be made and behavior to sustain. It is not necessarily easy to provide honest feedback. Obvious defi ciencies can be easy to identify and communicate, but it can be difficult to come up with areas of improvement for your unit’s outstanding performers. However, it can and must be done, as everyone has room for improvement. You must be deliberate and judicious when giving feedback to those who you are rat-

ing. Most people take feedback given to them seriously, and they may even take it personally. Consequently, it is vital to take the time to prepare the exact message you want to convey and the most appropriate method in which to deliver it. A simple sentence may resound with the member you rated long after your feedback session, with positive or negative impacts lasting years or even throughout that member’s entire career. Moreover, feedback should not be one-directional. Subordinates and peers need to engage in a constant, fact-based crossfeed with one another. If your organization has a disruptive person, his or her peers have the responsibility to step up and let the person know that they are negatively affecting the unit. Conversely, peers can provide positive reinforcement when they see a member suffering. That positive communication can be the impetus for turning someone’s day, or even their life, around.

here into their daily habits,” Goenen continued. During the open house, attendees were able to receive information about fire safety including home-fire safety issues, fire extinguisher training and holiday safety tips. Children attending also received safety lessons from firefighters. “It was good for my oldest son,” said Capt. Jason Bland, 86th Airlift Wing executive officer. “He’s 5 years old, and we went in the fire trailer. He learned about fire detectors and about dialing 112 in case of an emergency.” The event concluded with a live fire demonstration, where leadership

from throughout Ramstein helped firefighters extinguish an aircraft fire in the burn pit. “It was an exciting experience,” said Col. Brandon R. Hileman, 86th AW vice commander. “Fighting a simulated fire helps put in perspective the importance and bravery of our firefighters. I’m happy they organized this event to help inform our base community about fire prevention.” Fire Prevention Week was established to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire, the tragic 1871 fire that killed more than 250 people, left 100,000 homeless, destroyed more than 17,400 structures and burned more than 2,000 acres.

COMMANDER’S ACTION LINE The COMMANDER’S ACTION LINE gives all Airmen, retirees, families and community members a direct link to Brig. Gen. Jon T. Thomas, 86th Airlift Wing commander. The Action Line can be used to express constructive points of view on the policies and procedures of the base; discuss safety and security issues; and address problems, concerns or suggestions after traditional methods have been exhausted. To submit an Action Line, email 86aw.pa.commandinformation@us.af.mil with the subject “Action Line.” Action Line discussions that are deemed beneficial for the community at large will be considered for publication on the Web and the next available edition of the Kaiserslautern American newspaper.

Subordinates can provide valuable feedback as well. There seems to be the temptation not to tell the boss bad news, but, as the saying goes, bad news never gets better with age. Telling the emperor that he or she has no clothes might be difficult or embarrassing, but the only way to affect change is if subordinates provide positive, constructive, fact-based feedback to the organization’s leadership. Subordinates, and everyone for that matter, need to understand that there is a tactful way to provide feedback, and, when in doubt, use the Golden Rule on how you’d communicate feedback in that situation. Honest and constructive feedback is essential to the integrity of our Air Force units. The Air Force has developed the tools and processes to facilitate this dialogue, but it is up to each and every one of us, at all levels, to provide deliberate feedback to our subordinates, peers and leaders in a way that is tactful and professional.

MRTs strengthen resilience at work, home

Cesar Alvarez, 86th Airlift Wing master resilience trainer, discusses how individual values play a role in accomplishing personal goals during resilience training for military spouses Oct. 6 on Ramstein. The event’s goal was to teach spouses Comprehensive Airman Fitness, the Air Force program that links resilience to maintaining mental, physical, social and spiritual fitness.

Story and photo by Senior Airman Jonathan Stefanko 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Master resilience trainers hosted resilience training for military spouses

Oct. 6 on Ramstein. The event’s goal was to teach spouses Comprehensive Airman Fitness, the Air Force program that links resilience to maintaining mental, physical, social and spiritual fit-

ness. Jan Devitt, 86th Airlift Wing community support coordinator, is responsible for providing the training with her team of 17 MRTs. “Resilience is important for spouses because their state of mind influences their family and friends,” Devitt said. “By undergoing the resilience training, the audience learns how to keep a positive mindset through all the uncertainties that occur in the military.” During the training, MRTs discussed how individual values play a role in accomplishing personal goals. “When you don’t know what your most important values are it is difficult to accomplish your goals,” said Cesar Alvarez, 86th AW MRT. “There may be people who tell you what you should strive for whether it is school, career progression, etc. However, if that’s not where your values lie, then you won’t hold yourself accountable. “By realizing what is significant to you and matching your goals to reflect that, you hold yourself accountable and will be more likely to succeed than if you were reaching for goals set by someone else,” Alvarez continued. While the event focused on build-

over and nonchalantly told me my son had choked on his snack,” Stephanie Dalmo said. “My first thought (before I understood the severity of the incident) was, ‘Did you fill out a safety report?’ Later, I was told he used (Red Cross) lifesaving moves, and that’s when it hit me: He saved my baby.” Jackson’s parents said they are eternally grateful for Tatum’s quick response to the situation, which ultimately saved their son’s life. “Sean is an incredible young man,” said Master Sgt. John Dalmo, 76th Airlift Squadron communications systems operator and father of Jackson. “He’s kind, intelligent, compassionate, and he really cares about the children. Any parent who has a child in Sean’s room (at the CDC) knows how awesome he is. We’re very lucky to have him in our lives. How do you thank someone who saved your child’s life? There’s nothing I can do besides hug him every time I see him.” Tatum said even though he

was just doing his job, he felt very honored when he was informed he would be receiving the Red Cross Lifesaver Award. “The CPR course helped me a lot,” Tatum said. “Without it, I’m not sure I’d have been as confident in the situation. I’m very thankful for the training I’ve learned through the Red Cross.” The Red Cross Adult and Pediatric Automated External Defibrillator and CPR Red

Cross course is available to anyone who is interested. To sign up for the course, visit the Red Cross website at www.redcross.org; or to sign up for a course in the KMC area, visit the Ramstein Air Base website at www.ramstein.af.mil and click on the Red Cross icon on the bottom right-hand corner of the page. To contact the Ramstein Red Cross office, call 480-2171 or 06371-47-2171.

ing resilience, the MRTs also stated that communication is key between spouses because it helps establish what each other’s true values are. “A common response from new Airmen is that they value money,” Alvarez said. “However, if you dig deeper and ask where they would put that money, it is usually toward a house or a car or their family. Then they realize it isn’t money they value, but the security that it provides. “When spouses communicate their values, it adds another level of support for each other to help achieve those goals,” Alvarez concluded. The training was initially intended for key spouses; however, future resilience training will be open for all to attend. “No one expects someone to be resilient all the time; people need a boost every once in a while,” Devitt said. “Whether you get that boost from a lesson on how to bounce back or by networking and making a friend, this course is beneficial for everyone.” For more information on resilience events, call the 86th AW Community Support Office at 478-8630.

New recruiter sets goals high, accepts overseas challenges Story and photo by Airman 1st Class Lane Plummer 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs A recruiter’s responsibility begins when someone walks into his office. He stands up and greets with a warm smile and a welcoming handshake. The recruiter knows that, should the recruit decide to commit, he will be one of the first to exemplify the Air Force’s professional standard. It’s a tricky process, but it’s an experience that Tech. Sgt. Mubarak Rashid, 319th Recruiting Squadron enlisted accessions recruiter, is ready for as he begins recruiting on Ramstein. Rashid, who originally enlisted in the Air Force as a fuel distribution system operator, has spent three years waiting for this opportunity. After putting his initial recruiting experience to work in Atlanta, Rashid now brings his experiences and knowledge to his new recruiting environment in Europe. According to him, the change of environment has brought with it unique challenges he didn’t have stateside. “The number one challenge of recruiting here in Europe is how we’re geographically separated from the market we are trying to reach,” Rashid said. “We also don’t have a Military Entrance Processing Station here, so we have what we call a cradle-to-grave interaction with our recruits from coming in and just ‘being interested’ to shipping off to basic military training.” Despite the challenges, Rashid finds recruiting overseas on a military installation necessary. “Recruiting overseas is important because it provides us a potential pool of highly qualified individuals that already know many aspects of the Air Force,” Rashid said. “They’re normally more knowledgeable and experi-

enced with military culture, so tapping into this population adds Airmen who enter the Air Force with a little experience in how it works.” Before completing his tour as a recruiter, Rashid hopes to obtain the Gold Recruiter Badge, which represents the recipient has gone above and beyond his squadron’s expectations in recruiting new Airmen for the Air Force. He is never one to back down from a challenge and believes that by always setting new goals for himself, he will one day be able to obtain such a medal. As a recruiter, he gives insight on how to maintain their key domains, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual, of Comprehensive Airmen Fitness. “Getting physically fit, people should perform walk-

run intervals and do pushups, situps and pullups,” Rashid said. “If they’re interested in a religion, start to follow it. Most importantly, start toughening up and becoming stronger not just physically, but emotionally.” Aspects like striving for the best and maintaining total fitness are examples of what Rashid wants to instill in his future Airmen. His warm smile and welcoming handshake show that he’s ready to help his possible recruits into the Air Force. Should they decide to commit, Rashid knows he will set a good example by exemplifying the Air Force’s professional standard.

Crime Prevention Month in KMC by Staff Sgt. Joel Reyes 569th U.S. Forces Police Squadron October is Crime Prevention Month. During this month, the 569th U.S. Forces Police Squadron, 86th Security Forces Squadron and U.S. Army Garrison Rheinland-Pfalz Department of Emergency Services will be promoting crime prevention efforts with weekly tips. These tips can help reduce the risk of becoming a victim of the highest reported crimes in the area. Additional tips can be found on the KMC Neighborhood Watch Facebook page. Military law enforcement authorities provide a police presence to deter and

respond to criminal activity throughout the KMC, both on and off base. To facilitate Crime Prevention Month, seminars will take place during the month of October. An anti-bullying self-defense seminar is scheduled to be held from 4 to 6 p.m. each Wednesday of the month at the 86th SFS training room on Ramstein, Bldg. 2227, for kids ages 10 to 17 years old. Additionally, a women’s self-defense seminar is scheduled from 8 a.m. to noon Oct. 27 at the Ramstein Southside Fitness Center. Come join the 86th FSS and look for other crime prevention articles to help in keeping our communities safe. To sign up, contact

Tech. Sgt. Gregory Riley at 480-1215. This week’s focus is on vehicle, personal and home security safety tips: •  Never  place  your  valuables in your car where they can be seen. Leaving valuables in plain sight can be an invitation for theft. •  If  you  must  leave  valuables in an unattended vehicle, secure them by locking your valuables and other belongings in the trunk of your vehicle. •  Verify  your  vehicle  is  locked before leaving the area. Keyless or remote locking systems can malfunction from a low battery. •  Verify  your  windows  are rolled up and the sun roof is closed before leaving.

Even if the window is barely cracked, it makes a would-be thief’s job easier. •  Use  anti-theft  devices  such as a battery-powered wireless door alarm with programmable keypad, motion alarm with remote, etc. •  Mark  all  valuables  with  your initials. •  In  public  areas,  fitness  centers, grocery stores, etc., secure your belongings with a personal lock. •  When  you  are  not  at  home, you should ensure your windows, doors and garages are locked. An open door can be an invitation. •  Use  your  rollladens.  Never leave your house or apartment unlocked even if you are just around the corner.

Cyberbullying: What can parents do? by Senior Airman Sarah Hall-Kirchner 375th Air Mobility Wing Public Affairs SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. — According to the Pew Research Center, in 2000 about half of adults in the U.S. were online and only 3

percent of American households were using broadband for Internet access at  home. That number increased, and in 2014 Pew reported that 87 percent of American adults use the Internet. Today, the Internet is readily available and can be easily accessed on smartphones. Even teenagers and children have access to the Internet. This

ease of access to information has changed the world for the better, but it has also brought with it many new threats — one of which is cyberbullying. “Children have been bullying each other throughout the ages,” said William White, 375th Medical Group Family Advocacy Program outreach

manager. “However, today’s generation has been able to use technology and social media to expand their reach and the extent of their harm. It  is important for parents and children to understand that cyberbullying is willful  and  repeated  harm  inflicted  See bullying, Page 11

435th AGOW deploys team, expands OIR mission

Senior Airman Dustin Dixon, 435th Contingency Response Squadron loadmaster, directs an aircraft loader during an 86th Airlift Wing C-130J Super Hercules offload of equipment Sept. 12 at Diyarbakir Air Base, Turkey. Airmen from the 435th Contingency Response Group received more than 680 tons of equipment for base operations in support of the U.S. Air Force’s support personnel recovery mission from Turkey. When requested, coalition aircraft and personnel will provide recovery capability to protect and recover coalition members.

Story and photo by Airman 1st Class Cory W. Bush 39th Air Base Wing Public Affairs DIYARBAKIR AIR BASE, Turkey — Full certainty is never guaranteed in the military, which is why Airmen are trained to deploy at a moment’s notice and hit the grounding running when the need for them becomes reality. For Airmen assigned to the 435th Contingency Response Group, a subgroup of the 435th Air Ground Operations Wing, that need came on Aug. 12 when the unit deployed to Diyarbakir Air Base, Turkey. “The 435th CRG’s mission is to get in and out,” said Lt. Col Ryan Barney, 435th CRG

element commander. “The unique thing about this mission is the 435th CRG were the first troops on the ground, and we really depended on everyone and the defenders deployed with us for security as the building began.” The 80 Airmen from the 435th CRG, U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa’s only expeditionary open-thebase force, were tasked to set up initial life support and operations facilities for the bed-down of forces. The base stood up in support of Operation Inherent Resolve to enhance U.S. Air Forces Central Command’s personnel recovery operations in Syria and Iraq. According to Barney, the team had to build the base from nothing.

“When the 435th CRG first arrived, there was nothing but a grassy field and a lot of boulders,” Barney said. “By providing airfield ops, combat support and training, security, construction and mobile aircraft support that field is now a ‘bare base’ and ready for the follow-on force to arrive.” Due to the variety of missions the unit is tasked to accomplish, the 435th deploys to each tasking with equipment prepared to achieve the mission in multiple types of environments. “We have certainly had our challenges with the war-ready material equipment,” Barney said. “When you’re receiving over 680 tons of equipment, some of it is bound to not be in the condition you thought

it would arrive in. With a little bit of innovation and teamwork, the Airmen here were able to overcome those hurdles to keep moving forward.” Made up of a variety of 29 Air Force Specialty Codes, the Airmen of the 435th CRG work in close proximity, which allows them to learn other career fields as well as develop their own technical skills. “My job as an aerial porter is to unload planes and deal with logistics,” said Airman 1st Class Christopher McDade, 435th Contingency Response Squadron air transportation specialist. “But sometimes in order to get the job done, any one of us can be pulled from our daily operations to help out with something like construction, security or engineering.”

Within less than two weeks, the Airmen of the 435th CRG have built 88 operational structures on DAB. DAB is a Turkish base, home to the Turkish air force’s 8th Air Wing. According to Barney, the team couldn’t have completed as much as they have without the continuous partnership with Turkey and the 8th Main Jet Base Command. “This deployment has been very successful thus far,” Barney said. “The cooperation between the U.S. and Turkish forces has been excellent and I foresee the relationship continuing to grow as operations here and throughout the rest of Turkey continue. The 435th CRG and I couldn’t have asked for a better partner.”

through the use of computers, cell phones and other electronic devices and can cause serious harm.” Family advocacy along with the youth center and the Healthy Military Children initiative, want to give parents the tools they need to prevent cyberbullying and to stop it if it does occur. “Cyberbullying is a form of teen violence that can and does do serious damage,” White said. “Our kids are being hurt by this. With this class, we’re going to give parents the terminology and statistics to understand what is happening so they can recognize it and stop it. “Due to the complexities associated with social behavior and online cyberbullying, it is important that parents talk with their children and address the topic of cyberbullying with them, even if your child does not mention any problems,” White continued. First, talk with children about making themselves safe online. According to www.stopbullying.gov, a website managed by the Department of Health and Human Services website, online accounts should be made private. Each different type of account, such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, has ways to make it private. Go over those privacy settings with your child to keep their posts and photos safe. Some basic rules can also keep children safe online. Decide what rules children need to follow and then go over them. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends telling children to never give out their personal information. If a friend or loved one needs their information, they recommend calling the person directly and not putting it online, even in a message. The CDC also recommends for children to never add people to their friends list they don’t know. There are many fake social media accounts,

Kaiserslautern American and children should be taught to beware of them. It is also recommended that children do not initiate contact with people they do not know. Next, parents should tell their children what to do if they are being cyberbullied, stalked or harassed. The CDC recommends that parents assure their children they can come to them with any situation, even if the child was doing something they knew they shouldn’t have been doing, such as going on a forbidden website or using their phone after curfew. PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center reported that students surveyed in 2010 reported that the most helpful things that teachers can do are: listen to the student, check in with them afterward to see if the bullying stopped and give the student advice. Parents can also follow these same guidelines: listen to children, check in with them often and tell them what they could or should do. “The best tack parents can take when their child is cyberbullied is to make sure their child feels safe and secure, convey unconditional love and support,” White said. Students also reported in the same study that telling the person to stop, expressing that it hurts their feelings, walking away or pretending it doesn’t bother them had the most negative impact on getting help while or after being targeted by bullying. Finally, if a child tells their parent that they are being bullied, the parent needs to act, White said. The parent should contact the school and possibly the authorities. Parents need to believe their children and do what is necessary to help their children when they are being bullied. “Document and report cyberbullying,” White said. “Do not delete or erase messages that pertain to cyberbullying. The authorities can use it to possibly prosecute the person who is doing the bullying.”

Red cabbage and mashed chestnuts •

• • • • • •

Ingredients Red cabbage: 1 jar of red cabbage (you will find it on the economy named Rotkohl or Rotkraut) this will be enough for up to 4 people 1 onion 2 apples Sugar, salt, ground white pepper Red jam (cherry is the best) A dash of red wine Margarine, butter

Preparation Peel the apples, cut them into quarters, remove the pith and then slice them. Cut the onion into thin slices. In a pot, let a spoon full of margarine melt, add half a teaspoon of sugar and let it slowly caramelize. Add the sliced onion and apples with another teaspoon of butter and let all slowly roast on medium heat stirring occasionally. When you smell the onions and apples caramelize, add the red cabbage

and slowly roast all on medium heat. Now add dash of red wine and a bit of water and let it simmer for 2 hours, taking care that there is enough liquid in the pot, stirring from time to time. Finally, add salt, ground white pepper and the red jam. For the chestnuts, heat your oven to 300°F. Bake the chestnuts until the skin cracks. Then put them into cold water and peel the chestnuts with a sharp small knife. If the skin doesn’t come of properly put the chestnuts in the oven again. Once the chestnuts are all peeled, put them in a pot and cover them with milk and a little piece of butter. Add salt and ground white pepper and let it simmer until all the chestnuts are really soft. Put the chestnuts into a blender, add just enough of the milk from the pot to get a creamy consistency. Add salt and pepper and a little bit of nutmeg, if you like. Here you have to delicious typical German fall side dishes that go perfectly with dark meat.

Energizing our nation’s diversity Courtesy of the Hispanic Heritage Month committee


ational Hispanic Heritage Month is observed from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15. Just as the observance month is not confined to a specific calendar month, so too are the contributions and achievements of the Hispanic Americans who have helped energize our nation’s diversity. One such individual is the command chief master sergeant of the U.S. Air Forces Central Command. Chief Master Sgt. Ramon Colon-Lopez is a native of Puerto Rico who enlisted in the U.S. Air Force in 1989 as a transportation specialist. Feeling the need to be closer to the fight, he volunteered to be a pararescue specialist in 1994 and graduated with only 11 out of the original 113 that were in his class. Colon-Lopez has deployed in support of numerous operations as a pararescue specialist. In March 2004, he was in Afghanistan on a mission to capture a high-profile target with the intention of preventing the proliferation of chemical weapons. During the mission, his team sustained small arms fire, causing serious damage to their helicopter. “That specific night was an eyeopening experience for us in the sense that the enemy almost got us,” Colon-Lopez said.

As bullets were flying he pressed forward, uncertain of the enemy size, and overran the enemy position resulting in 10 enemy apprehensions, two enemy kills and the destruction of multiple small caliber weapons and rocket propelled grenades. As a result of these actions, ColonLopez was among the first six Airmen and first Hispanic awarded the newly created Air Force Combat Action Medal. “I look at it in the sense that timing played a part in the honor of the six of us to be the first ones to get it,” Colon-Lopez said. “I would like to say that there are many others who engaged in combat well before I did that should have been in the first six; Airmen like Tech Sgt. John Chapman, Tech Sgt. Keary Miller and Senior Airman Jason Cunningham as examples.” He admits that the repetitive nature of combat operations can sometimes lead to complacency. When asked what kept him going, Colon-Lopez said, “I was told numerous times that I was not going to make it. I kept that lack of belief from those people in the back of my mind, and I used it as fuel when the tank was running near empty. Also, I had very close teammates, and we relied on each other to make it through.” As the command chief master sergeant for AFCENT, he involves himself in many community groups. “The way I see it, the U.S. Air Force values

Chief Master Sgt. Ramon Colon-Lopez, command chief master sergeant of the U.S. Air Forces Central Command

diversity for many reasons,” Colon-Lopez said. “The main one being diversity of thought. Different upbringings give us different perspectives to come up with great solutions to very complex issues. That is the power of America, and that is why I am proud to be an American Airman.” A beacon of diversity, Colon-Lopez embodies what is possible through hard work and determination and symbolizes Hispanics making a difference in the military.

Halloween event features spooky hike by Petra Lessoing 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


he Pfrimmtal Touristik Association will sponsor its traditional spooky Halloween event Oct. 24 in Breunigweiler. A variety of animals including giant

spiders and bats as well as ghosts, witches, monsters and bandits will be up to mischief and scaring participants during the spooky hike. The horror event will take place from 6:30 to 11 p.m. The entry to “Spooky Horror World” will be at the sports field in Breunigweiler. “Visitors will start their hike

in small groups at 6:30 p.m. and every five minutes a new group will follow,” said Albert Koch from the PFT association. “Sturdy shoes and the love of adventure are good requirements for the two-kilometer-long route.” This year, the horror trip leads to the center of Breunigweiler, which will

turn into a giant horror arena decorated with blood-thirsty accessories and typical Halloween items. After the horror trip, participants have the opportunity to meet in various yards of the village to talk about their experiences. “Here, hikers can recuperate from scary moments and enjoy a social get-together in a spooky atmosphere,” Koch said. The hike is at your own risk and not appropriate for children under 12. The route will be lit, so no flashlights are needed. Dogs are not allowed. “We had more than 2,000 visitors joining our horror

event and hope to even lure more this year,” Koch said. Interested participants should buy tickets in advance for the specific time frame in which they would like to start their hike to avoid long waiting times. Tickets are available for €6 at Pfrimmtal Touristik, Muehlbachweg 1, 67725 Breunigweiler, north of Alsenborn.

Goosebumps (PG) Upset about moving from a big city to a small town, teenager Zach Cooper finds a silver lining when he meets the beautiful girl, Hannah, living right next door.

Stine, the author of the bestselling Goosebumps series. It turns out that there is a reason why Stine is so strange: he is a prisoner of his own imagination — the monsters that his books made famous are real and Stine protects his readers by keeping them locked up in their books. When Zach unintentionally unleashes the monsters from their manuscripts and they begin to terrorize the town, it’s suddenly up to Stine, Zach and Hannah to get all of them back in the books where they belong. Starring Jack Black and Dylan Minnette.
