During his recent visit to Company C, 53rd Signal Battalion, Lt. Gen. Richard Formica awarded Soldiers with something unique to the Army — “space wings.” Formica, commander of U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command & Army Forces Strategic Command, pinned Army’s Basic Space Badges on two Soldiers and three Senior Space Badges on NCOs. “When I come out to see them, it’s always good to be able to recogni e a fe fol s ormica said he s ace ualification badge is one of those ways to recognize these heroes.” Earning their senior badges were Sgt. 1st Class Jeremy Marsac, Sgt. Vincent Samson and Sgt. Herman Ada. Earning their basic badges were Spc. Cynthia Dean and Pfc. Ryan Lesley. The Oct. 2 ceremony was held at Company C’s small post on Landstuhl’s Kirchberg, near an array of large white antennas they use to manage military satellites hovering miles above Earth’s surface. Company C unit maintains satellite communications capabilities for a worldwide military network, said Capt. Jeffrey Keenan, Company C commander. The Army calls the Soldiers from Company C, 53rd Signal Soldiers “space enablers.” Battalion earn “space wings.” To earn the badge, the Soldiers undergo training, plus demonstrate professionalism, either managing satellites or supporting customers’ uplinks, Keenan said. “It’s a unique thing, something Soldiers aspire for,” Keenan said. “It’s a badge of acceptance in this community.

Make readiness a personal experience by Maj. Tiffany A. Feet 86th Maintenance Squadron commander



ecently, the world watched in shock as U.S. embassies in multiple countries came under attack, and e suffered the first death of a ambassador in office in more than 20 years. These events serve as a reminder to Airmen everywhere as to how quickly and unexpectedly the call for help can come and how often there is little time to prepare. Airmen are no stranger to the term “readiness,” but how many of us have taken the time to understand what readiness requires from each of us individually? When you search for readiness on the nternet it comes u ith these defi nitions: “The state of being fully prepared for something,” or, “A willingness to do something Both of these are good definitions but alone, they are too broad for personal application. nderstanding readiness is not difficult Air Force readiness is simply the sum of each member’s individual readiness and the availability of their equipment. The key to achieving readiness at the Air Force level is for each member to understand and monitor their individual requirements. So, how do we take this broad term called “readiness” and break it down into something that is personally applicable and actionable? Most Airmen can divide their individual readiness into three categories: personal, profes-

sional and organizational. Imagine you receive a phone call early one morning. Y ou are being recalled on re orting ou find out ou are required to deploy and you will be leaving the following morning. Keeping this scenario in mind, consider the following questions: Person al Read i n ess ill ou be scrambling to find someone to feed and care for your pets? Will you be frantically trying to set up automatic payments for your bills? Will you be standing at the legal table on the processing line updating the power of attorney you let lapse or the will you never updated after your marriage or the birth of a child? Prof essi on al Read i n ess Will you be pulled from your primary duties to sit at a computer and complete an overdue training module? Are you rushing to immuni ations to get that u shot ou ha e been receiving emails about for the last three weeks or to get that physical health assessment you are overdue for? As you prepare to leave your additional duties behind, are you quickly trying to bring your alternate up to speed to ensure nothing falls through the cracks during your absence? If you are the alternate and your primary is being deployed, are you digging through the AFIs to learn everything that needs to be done? Organ i z at i on al Read i n ess Is the unit scrambling to get waivers or replacements because members tasked in those

packages have deployment availability codes against them? Is your section working around the clock to repair equipment so that you can deploy the correct amount and still maintain home station o erations s our ight send ing out runners to look for personnel because the member’s information was incorrect on the recall roster? Did you answer “yes” to any of the questions above? If so, then you are not ready. If you did not answer yes to any of the questions, I would challenge you to come back in a month to ask them again. A lot can happen in one month; people take leave and get injured, recurring training and medical requirements come due, and additional duties can change. In short, life happens. Chances are that not all of the answers will be the same, because readiness is not a box that can be checked and set aside. It is something that takes constant attention and updating. These questions are not all encompassing and ma not be a licable to all career fields They are just a few examples that come from my personal and professional experience, but any Airman can easily sit down and develop a list of uestions that a l to their field or er sonal situation. Readiness is not an option. It is essential to the mission. It is the linchpin that enables rapid, global mobility and ensures we can respond at a moment’s notice when the call for help comes. When that call does come, the question is simple. Are you ready?

Maj. Gen. Aundre F. Piggee, 21st Theater Sustainment Command commander, addresses the Baumholder community Oct. 11 during the National Disability Employment Awareness Month observance. The program was sponsored by the Special Emphasis Program Committee.

The Special Emphasis Program Committee and the Baumholder Military Community observed National Disability Employment Awareness Month Oct. 11 with a presentation on Smith Barracks by Maj. Gen. Aundre F. Piggee, 21st Theater Sustainment Command commander. The theme for this year’s obser ance as rofit b Investing in Workers With Disabilities.” “There are more than 54 million Americans with disabilities,” Piggee said. “Percentagewise, that’s about 21 percent of

the American work force.” The military and federal government lead the way in employing people with disabilities. In a proclamation by U.S. President Barack Obama earlier this year, he noted that more people with disabilities work for the federal government today than in all the past 20 years. The National Disability Employment Awareness Month observance is in October, but Piggee pointed out that it should not be limited to just one month. “We need an environment that is inclusive and recognizes a person’s abilities every day and not just on the given month,” he said.

DEPers get small preview of BMT by Airman 1st Class Hailey Haux 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs A bead of sweat drips down his temple as he stands at attention, hoping the military training instructor doesn’t notice him. It begins. he first thing that ent through my mind when I heard the yelling coming from behind me was, ‘ Oh crap! ’ It was very loud,” said Ryan Hawkins, Delayed Entry Program member. The Delayed Entry Program is designed to help future enlistees better prepare themselves for basic military training. More than 30 DEP members got a chance to experience BMT for an afternoon, while seven former MTIs didn’t hold back, giving the soonto-be trainees everything they could come up with. “We yell and scream for one reason. We want you all to leave basic training with one clear and precise thought: to work together as one team with the same set of core values,” said Chief Master Sgt. Adam McNair, U.S. Air orces in uro e ead uarters first sergeant. “After all the yelling and screaming is done, and you march down the bomb run for graduation, you will know the feeling of being proud to serve in the world’s greatest Air Force.” Preparing DEP members for the training to come is what the former MTIs came to assist with. “Being able to put that campaign hat back on was awesome,” said Tech.

It’s for someone you can rely upon.” During a previous Landstuhl visit last September, Formica, a native of Connecticut who served much of his career as an artiller officer also pinned space badges on several Company C Soldiers. He also wears a space badge and is proud to command Soldiers who provide the military such a unique capability, he said. “It’s important for the Soldiers to know their commander and command sergeant ma or is chec ing on their ability and their well-being,” Formica said. “I like to be able to do that.”

Landstuhl helicopter medics aid local woman after car crash Story and photo by Rick Scavetta U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern Sounds of a crashing car startled three Soldiers one recent evening as they ran up the steep Kirchberg hillside just west of town. Tires screeched and metal crunched in the valley below, where Saarbrüc ker Straße heads toward Haupstuhl under autobahn A62’s highway overpass. Sgt. Roger Adame turned to fellow combat medic Sgt. Joe Campbell and helicopter crew chief Spc. Will Taylor. “Let’s get down there, right away,” Adame told Campbell. “Maybe there’s something we can do to pitch in and help out.” They sprinted down the hillside to find some eo le gathering at the scene, although no one seemed to know what to do, Campbell said. The Soldiers, however, set to work. The driver, a German woman in her early 20s, felt neck pain and had cuts on her hands a lor a former firefighter set u arning triangles and a ed off traffic rom the rear seat Campbell reached forward and stabilized the woman’s spine. The driver’s door was crushed, impeding his ability to check further. Adame, who served downrange with Campbell during their last tour in Afghanistan, fashioned a makeshift brace for the woman’s neck. “I was able to do so using trauma sheers, sterile bandaging and a car visor,” Adame said, in a written account afterward.

The setting sun often blinds drivers heading westward, likely a factor in the Oct. 1 accident, said Thomas Jung, a mechanic who’s served as a andstuhl olunteer firefighter for 2 years. Landstuhl paramedics got the call at 6: 04 p.m. and were at the scene six minutes later, Jung said. Meanwhile, Campbell was trying to keep the woman calm, he said. When German paramedics arrived, they didn’t expect to see a Soldier in the car, supporting the woman’s neck and talking calmly to her, Jung said. “We were surprised to see he was sitting in the car,” Jung said. “It was very good when he talked with her, so she felt like she was not alone. This is the best thing you can do.” Using the Jaws of Life, a hydraulic tool that tore into the car’s roof, German rescuers got her out while Campbell continued to support her neck. Beside the high autobahn overpass, there is a steep grassy patch amid the forested hillside where Soldiers run their “gut check,” a tough set of four uphill climbs that can leave them exhausted. Once the woman was safely on her way for further care, the oldiers returned to training finishing one more run up the steep hill. “Being in an Army (physical training) uniform gave the German public and responding agencies a shining example of who we are as Soldiers, medics and Americans,” Adame said. “Sergeant Campbell truly demonstrated that we are proud of the corps of

While the event sounds heroic to some, Campbell shrugs off the idea that they did anything more than what the Army has trained them for — keep the patient safe, avoid further harm and provide initial care. “We knew what to do, because this is our job,” Campbell said. “Everyone in this company is good at handling emergencies and staying calm when there’s a lot of pressure, they routinely do that. So, it’s not anything out of the ordinary.”

Red Ribbon Run reinforces messages of healthy choices Story and photo by Rick Scavetta U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern


undreds of service members, government civilians and family members came out for U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern’s 2012 Red Ribbon Run, held Oct. 13 on Rhine Ordnance Barracks. The annual run, the largest one of its kind in the KMC and one of the largest Army wide, recently received Defense Department recognition for raising awareness on maintaining a drug-free lifestyle. “Soldiers came out in massive numbers in support of this message,” said Sarah McInerney, commander of the 5th Q uartermaster Detachment, a ROB-based 21st Theater Sustainment Command unit that rigs parachutes. “They came out on a volunteer basis on Saturday. It really speaks volumes about how they feel.” Red Ribbon Week, which starts Monday, honors the memory of Enrique Camarena, an undercover Drug Enforcement Administration agent and former Marine who was tortured and killed in Mexico in 1985. People, sick of the destruction caused by alcohol and drugs, began wearing red satin badges and forming coalitions to spread the word. Now, events are designed for people to take a stand against substance abuse. Here in the KMC, the family-geared run and walk has become tradition. Hosted by Garrison Commander Lt. Col. Lars Z etterstrom, the event’s guest speakers were Maj. Gen. Aundre Piggee, the 21st TSC commander, and

Roughly 1,800 people take part in the 2012 Red Ribbon Run on Oct. 13 at Rhine Ordnance Barracks. The U.S. Army Garrison event supported Red Ribbon Week, an awareness campaign geared toward maintaining a healthy, drug-free lifestyle.

Air Force Col. Christine Taylor, the 86th Medical Group commander. In all, 145 volunteers and 80 troops from Better Opportunities for Single Soldiers supported the event. Roughly 1,800 people took part, including 459 runners, 415 walkers and 76 pets. Hundreds more ere cheering at the red balloon laden finish line. The 5th Q uartermaster Detachment earned the trophy for greatest unit participation. Tearing through a wide stretch of red paper, Sgt. Joseph Campbell checked the time on his atch Cam bell a ight medic ith the andstuhl based Company C, 1st Battalion, 214th Aviation Regiment, often leads the pack at KMC runs. This ear as no different as Cam bell crossed the finish line minutes ahead of others.

hile running Cam bell re ected on a recentl read scripture that spoke of avoiding harmful substances — a message that mirrors the goal of Red Ribbon Week, he said. “Listen kids, listen people. If you don’t do drugs, you can run and not be weary. Y ou can walk and not faint. Y ou’ll have energy and great treasures of knowledge. Y ou’ll tap into energy you didn’t even know you had,” Campbell said. “That’s what people should take away from this.” Many people brought their dogs. “Star Wars” characters roamed through crowds, stopping for snapshots with participants. Inside ROB’s special events center, family readiness groups offered food and drinks. Children snacked from a huge American ag made from fruit and la ed in a bouncy castle. On Sept. 11, Piggee recognized the garrison’s Army Substance Abuse Program employees for their efforts. This year, the ASAP employees earned the 22nd annual Department of Defense Community Awareness Award based on the strength of previous Red Ribbon Run events and the program’s prohealth focus. Months of planning paid off, said Sandi Magill, the run’s lead organizer. She said she was glad to see families enjoying themselves while taking home an important message — saying no to drugs and alcohol. “It was a good community event,” Magill said. “When you see smiling faces of the littlest kids, they were just happy to have been there. To me, that really makes it.”

October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month This year, President Barack Obama again issued a presidential proclamation declaring October as National Cyber Security Awareness Month. For each week in October, there is a different theme and focus. One of the main themes of the campaign is “Stop. Think. Connect.” and “general online safety.” More information about the campaign can be found at http: / / stopthinkconnect.org. This website addresses some information that every Internet user should pay particular attention to: ST OP - Before you use the Internet, take time to understand the risks and learn how to spot potential problems. T HI NK - Take a moment to be certain the path ahead is clear. Watch for warning signs and consider how your actions online could impact your safety or your family’s. CONNE CT - Enjoy the Internet ith greater confidence no ing you’ve taken the right steps to safeguard yourself and your computer. When we address the issue of “gen-

eral online safety,” we are looking at a wide scope of potential capabilities that must be squared away while online. Some of the terminologies have been around for a while and some are relatively new. As smartphone and tablet technologies continue to replace our existing hardware platforms, there is an increased privacy risk associated with these devices. Most smartphones and tablets have GPS capabilities built in them and location service features are typically turned on by default. When a picture is taken with the smartphone or tablet, the GPS data is embedded into the picture. Anyone who comes across this picture can use the GPS coordinates to determine exactly where the picture was taken. A harmless picture of children playing in the yard could provide the exact location of where the family lives. Social media continues to have a presence in day-to-day environments. The challenge associated with social networking is the fact that the security features of the individual’s account is constantly changing based on what the site owner is changing. Users are reminded to periodically check their

security settings to ensure they are not opening themselves up to invasions of their privacy. Social networking itself is not bad; more often than not, it is the account security settings that are the culprit for unauthorized release of information. A quick Google search will yield many presentations on how to effectively lock down your social networking sites. Phishing is a terminology that has been around for a while and has been prevalent in today’s society. Hackers and general bad guys attempt to fool an individual by getting the unsuspecting user to willingly divulge their private information. Phishing is still an effective threat vector because of the large number of individuals who fall prey to the hack. Smishing is new terminology that is just like phishing but is conducted over cell phone text messaging. Smishing happens on cell phones much the same as a user receives an email in their mailbox. If they fall for the bait, their cell phone could be taken control of and any content residing in the device could be stolen. One of the main keys in ensuring the safety and security of the home

information system is by providing updated operating system and application patches along with antivirus signature files The second Tuesday of every month is called “Patch Tuesday,” and all Microsoft updates will be released during this timeframe. As far as the applications are concerned, each company has its own release schedule or update feature. It is recommended to check your applications on a monthly basis to ensure you are running the latest and greatest patches. Antivirus applications are free for all active-duty military and Department of Defense civilian personnel to use on their home computer systems. There are numerous sites that an individual can use in order to download either the McAfee or Symantec solution. These are among the few sites available: » https: / / infosec.navy.mil/ main/ home?p= 5-1 » https: / / patches.csd.disa.mil/ CollectionInfo.aspx?id= 213 For questions, contact your unit information assurance officer ( Article courtesy of H Q U SAFEA A A y er S rety f ce

Optometry specialists offer vision-repairing surgery by Airman 1st Class Trevor Rhynes 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


he Ramstein Optometry Flight and specialists at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center offer a way for service members to get their ision fi ed b undergoing corneal refractive surgery here, as opposed to getting the procedure done at a hospital in the U.S., saving money and time. CRS, which breaks up into two different eye surgeries, reduces dependence on glasses or contacts. The procedure is done at LRMC after a member is deemed eligible by an optometrist. “There are many factors to consider in determining who is a candidate for refractive surgery,” said Capt. Jay Butler, 86th Optometry Flight staff optometrist. “In addition to having a stable prescription over a year’s time, member’s eyes also need to be very healthy inside and out with one year’s retain ability with no deployments scheduled.” Waiting time for the surgery has been reduced with the fast track program offered at the LRMC. “With the initiation of the Fast Track Program at LRMC, there is virtually no waiting list,” Butler said. “We invite members to come in to the Ramstein Optometry Clinic and ask if they are a candidate for refractive surgery. From there, we can look at their medical records and determine if they are a candidate or if the need a routine e am As with other surgeries, recovery time depends on the person and type of surgery. There are two different surgeries that are offered: LASIK or PRK (a lesser known type of surgery). “Everyone has heard about LASIK, but PRK, pho-

torefractive keratectomy, isn’t as known. However, it has been around much longer,” Butler said. “The recovery period with LASIK is much shorter. And with LASIK, people usually see very well immediately after the surgery with minimal discomfort, and the patient will remain on medication eye drops for t o to four ee s and artificial tears for u to a year.” PRK takes longer and patients feel discomfort during recovery. “With PRK, the recovery period is much longer and varies depending on how quickly the patient heals,” Butler said. “After PRK, patients are usually in some discomfort for about three to fi e da s and ision uctuates as the corneal tissue e ens out in the healing process (around three months). Some research suggests slightly better acuity in the long run with PRK, but results are similar. Currently, 80 to 90 percent of patients receiving refractive surgery through LRMC have PRK performed.” Both surgeries ha e their benefits including removing the dependence on glasses by improving vision to 20/ 20. “We always tell patients that the true purpose of corneal refractive surgery is to decrease dependence on glasses and contact lenses. It is true that after the surgery, many people are glasses-free for years,” he said. “Data collected by the military tells us that at the one-year mark after refractive surgery at a military surgery center, somewhere between 95 and 98 percent of patients are seeing 20/ 20 or better without any kind of correction. However, there is still a chance for slipping back into a small prescription as the years go by, and everyone much past the age of 40 will still need some type

of glasses correction for reading and computer use.” So, weigh your options and speak to an optometrist to see if you’re eligible for these surgeries. “Some people are intolerable to contact lenses and some report that glasses are a nuisance,” Butler said. “Some people can’t even see the alarm clock in the morning ithout first reaching for their glasses For these kinds of people, corneal refractive surgery is not onl beneficial but life changing If interested in either the LASIK or PRK surgeries, set up an appointment to have your medical records checked or to undergo a routine appointment. Like other surgeries, there are possible side effects and complications. Remember to speak with your optometrist to help you understand them.

Drug Demand Reduction Program taking back prescription drugs


rom 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday, the Drug Demand Reduction Program and the Ramstein Pharmacy will give the KMC an opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous, e ired unused and un anted rescription drugs. Bring medications for disposal to the Kaiserslautern Military Community Center. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. Educational material will also be presented by the health and wellness center, adolescent substance abuse counseling service, as well as alcohol and drug abuse prevention and treatment. Last April, Americans turned in 552,161 pounds — 276 tons — of prescription drugs at more than 5,600 sites operated by the DEA and nearly 4,300 state and local law enforcement partners. In its four previous “Take Back” events, the DEA and its partners took

in more than 1.5 million pounds of pills. This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diver-

sion, misuse and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of

abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines ushing them do n the toilet or throwing them in the trash — pose potential safety and health hazards. If you are unable to attend this event, but are interested in disposing of our unused or e ired medications, there are drop-off locations at the Ramstein Clinic Pharmacy during normal duty hours: from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, or in the Outpatient Pharmacy at the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays.

Tips to increase your gas mileage C

onsidering the price of gas these days, who isn’t trying to save a few bucks at the pump? Though we can’t do anything about the price of gas, you can make gas mileage a consideration when purchasing your vehicles. r if a ne more efficient ehicle is not in your future, we can make the cars we have now use gas more efficientl Do you know what kind of gas mileage you are getting? Calculating this is sim le tart b filling u our tank. Write down the odometer reading or reset your trip gauge to zero. he ne t time ou get gas fill the tank again. Divide the miles you traveled bet een fill u s b the amount of gas ou bought on the second fill This is your miles per gallon. So, d oes tha t n u mb er n eed a l i ttl e b i t of i mp rov i n g? T ry some of these ti p s w hi l e d ri v i n g: 1. Drive gently. Reduce your breaking and quick acceleration.

Driving at constant, reasonable speeds saves gas. 2. Lighten up. Remove all extra weight from your car that you do not absolutely need. While carrying around the golf clubs in the back might be considered a “necessity” by some, cars carrying extra weight use more gas. 3. Minimize air conditioning use. When possible, close the windows and use the vents to bring in outside air. 4. Combine errands into one trip. It sounds like a no-brainer, but think of the miles (and gas) you could save by stopping at the store on the way home from work instead of making a separate trip. 5. Car pool. If you and a coworker trade off, you can both save gas and money. Al so, ma k e su re y ou r c a r i s i n good rep a i r: 1. Start by checking your tire pressures. (Checking your tires before the

upcoming winter season is a necessity anyway.) It takes more effort for the engine to ro el an under in ated tire than a ro erl in ated one which consumes more gas. Beware of o er in ation hich can lead to handling problems and uneven wear on the tires. A chart of the optimum pressure for your vehicle and tire combination is either in your owner’s manual or on a sticker inside one of the doors. 2 Change the air filter his is an inexpensive part to buy and depending on the car, installation can even be performed by a beginner. Check the owner’s manual for recommendations. Change this more often if you live in a particularly dusty area, travel on dirt or gravel roads, or if you off-road for sport. 3. Make sure the spark plugs are firing ro erl e lace them if the are due. 4. Make sure the engine timing is appropriate. 5. Inspect the exhaust system and

muf er here should be no holes though chances are if you have an exhaust problem, you will hear it and you won’t pass your annual inspection. Lastly, check your owner’s manual for the recommended gas type. Ensure you know the European equivalent octane rating for those times ou fill u on the econom Also, do your research and check your compatibility before opting to use the new Super E10. There really is no need to buy the “super plus” high octane gas unless your owner’s manual recommends it or your engine “knocks” without it. Purchasing high octane gas even if it is not required will not harm your engine, but will hurt your wallet. By following these tips, you will not only conserve natural resources and reduce your carbon footprint, you will also save yourself some serious money.

Baumholder children become scientists for a day Story and photo by Ignacio “Iggy” Rubalcava U.S. Army Garrison Baumholder Public Affairs Children at Baumholder’s School Age Services and Teen Center became scientists for the day during 4-H National Y outh Science Day Oct. 10. The 4-H Club used the day to help teach children how to apply science and technology to solving environmental issues. This year’s project was the 4-H Eco-Bot Challenge. Children enhanced their engineering skills by assembling their own Eco-Bots to conduct an environmental clean-up. They tested the interaction of the Eco-Bot’s design features on various surfaces to determine the most effective clean-up solution. t as the first time Baumholder children artici pated in this worldwide 4-H project. “This was a project from the leadership forum earlier in 2012. Some of the teens and I learned how to do this project and we were supposed to come back and teach it to the SAS and to other teenage children,” said Linda Wojcik from Baumholder’s Teen Center. The object of the project was for children to learn about simple robotics and to apply what they learned and built to solving an environmental issue. The Eco-Bots were constructed with a toothbrush

Their environmental spill was a beach head drawn on a piece of paper. Bird seed was spread on the paper to simulate the spill. The Eco-Bot was turned loose on the “oil spill” to see how effective it was and the children were free to modify their EcoBot and make it more functional. After the Eco-Bot did its job, its effectiveness was determined by applying a simple formula to the amount of surface that was brushed clean. “The project was very successful. We had a youngster that came up with an entirely different way of modifying his Eco-Bot than anybody else I saw in all the training I went to,” Wojcik said. Brian Martinez, one of the youth at the Teen Center who participated in the project, summed it up when he said, “We’re learning how to build robots by using simple things in the household. We have a piece of paper with bird food on it and we created a barrier so the co Bot ouldn t out and e ust scrub all of the bird food out of the way.” “The kids had a great time with it and it was just a fun project,” Wojcik said. fficials at Baumholder s A and een Center plan to make 4-H Science Day a regular activity for the youth.

Haunted Baumholder readies for Halloween fun Tent City to scare again Story and photo by Ignacio “Iggy” Rubalcava U.S. Army Garrison Baumholder Public Affairs

or the second year since its return, Haunted Tent City is scheduled to be held in the wooded area across from Burger King Oct. 26 through 31 on Ramstein. “Guests can expect a fun and scary night in the woods of Ramstein,” said Tech. Sgt. Shirley Phillips, lead for this year’s Haunted Tent City. “We are hosting 10 attractions featuring a panic checker board and snake rooms with a haunted forest.” The insane asylum and clown tent will also be back this year, along with a few others, she said. “The insane asylum seemed to be a favorite last year,” said Master Sgt. Jason Hindmarsh, 435th Construction and Training Squadron section chief. There are two versions of Haunted Tent City: “Light Fright” and “Full Fright.” “Light Fright” is held every day from 5 to 7 p.m. and is set up for minimal scare. All actors will be out in the open areas of the attractions for all to see. “‘ Light Fright’ is geared toward those who want to bring the entire family out to enjoy this event,” Phillips said. “Full Fright” begins at 7 p.m. and scares until midnight. “This is Haunted Tent City at its best. I would recommend that those with children who scare easily please attend during ‘ Light Fright’ times,” Phillips said. All e artment of efense affiliated personnel will be charged $3 for “Light Fright” and $5 for “Full Fright.” As it was in the past, proceeds from the event will be given back to the local community, he said. In the past, the attraction was not recommended for children under the age of 12, even if just attending “Light Fright.” “It will be a good time for all, young and old,” Hindmarsh said. “If little ones go through ‘ Light Fright’ and think they can handle the ‘ Full Fright,’ they are more than welcome, with permission from their parents of course.” With roughly 2,500 in attendance last year, Haunted Tent City gives members of the KMC something to look forward to during this haunted season. “We do it for the people,” Hindmarsh said. “It’s like a little piece of home along with those traditions.” Patrons are highly encouraged to park in the Kaiserslautern Military Community Center parking lot near Burger King.

Hallowing is just around the corner and U.S. Army Garrison Baumholder is brewing up a witch’s cauldron full of events for this year’s celebration, held Oct. 26 through 31. To get people in the mood for Halloween, Baumholder’s haunted house in the basement of the Rheinlander Community Club will be scaring the bejeebers out of visitors from 7 to 9 p.m. every day from Oct. 26 to 28. This attraction is geared for adults, and parental discretion is recommended for children. Shooters is holding a costume contest Oct. 27, and the annual Monster Mash 5 kilometer run kicks of on Halloween Day at 9 a.m. Oct. 31 beginning at the Hall of Champions. Participants are encouraged to run in costume. A treasure trove of goodies awaits all the gruesome goblins and wicked little witches at the Rheinlander Community Club parking lot during the annual trunk-ortreat from 5 to 8 p.m. Oct. 31. Trunk-or-treat allows off-post families to park in a centrally located place on post and pass out candy to the community’s ghosts and goblins. Community members are invited to set up their “candy trunks” at the Rheinlander parking lot for the children to gather their goodies.

The moment she received the news that the cancer had started spreading to her lymph nodes is when she started to feel as though she was not going to be alive much longer and not going to see that baby grow up. That was probably the lowest point in her journey, she said. Then she started researching and realized her diagnosis wasn’t necessarily a death sentence if it was caught early enough.

PT Boot Camp class strengthens Airmen Story and photo by Tech. Sgt. Chad Thompson 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Ramstein Airmen have seen a decline in their aistlines and an increase in their o erall fitness levels recently. The Ramstein Northside Fitness Center staff offers free PT Boot Camp classes from 11: 30 a.m. to 12: 30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, and it’s available for anyone who wants to participate. The class offers a combination of strength-training and cardio exercises to provide a total-body workout. The Oct. 10 class consisted of 42 different crosstraining stations and was run by a volunteer instructor, Loriann Tierney. “This kind of workout is particularly designed for getting ready for your PT test,” Tierney said. “A lot of people either lift weights and avoid cardio or run a lot and have issues with their push-ups.” With a combination of strength training and cardio, Airmen will get a well-rounded workout that gets results, she said. “One of the best feelings is talking to someone who has been struggling with their PT test and after a fe classes comes in and tells ou the finall passed, or someone who says the class helped them greatly increase their scores,” Tierney said. Mixing up the workouts is another way to keep Airmen motivated, she said. “There is some really great equipment at this gym and it’s nice to have a wide variety of things to choose from,” Tierney said.

Visit www.kaiserslauternamerican.com/movies.php for details Argo (R) — On Nov. 4, 1979, as the Iranian revolution reaches its boiling point, militants storm the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, taking 52 Americans hostage. But, in the midst of the chaos, six Americans manage to slip away and find refuge in the home of the Canadian ambassador. Knowing it is only a matter of time before the six are found out and likely killed, a CIA specialist named Tony Mendez comes up with a risky plan to get them safely out of the country. Starring Ben Affleck and John Goodman.

Here Comes the Boom (PG) — Former collegiate wrestler Scott Voss is a 42-year-old biology teacher in a failing high school. When cutbacks threaten to cancel the music program and lay off its teacher, Scott begins to raise money by moonlighting as a mixed martial arts fighter. Everyone thinks Scott is crazy, including the school nurse, Bella, but in his quest, Scott gains something he never expected as he becomes a sensation that rallies the entire school. Starring Kevin James and Salma Hayek.
