Retirees celebrate service with Team Ramstein Story and photos by Airman 1st Class Lane Plummer 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs The 86th Airlift Wing Retiree Activities Office hosted the annual Retiree Appreciation Day event Oct. 13 to 17 on Ramstein as part of a week-long celebration for retirees. The event’s goal was to thank more than 3,000 military retirees in the KMC and celebrate their service with a variety of activities and provided information. As soon as retirees entered Ramstein’s Officers’ Club, they were greeted by Soldiers, Airmen and Junior ROTC cadets at the front door waiting to escort them in. It was an extra touch of class, according to Luis de Andrade, 86th AW RAO director. “These same volunteers also had breakfast with the retirees to share their time and some conversation with them,” de Andrade said. “The KMC truly showed that they care for our retiree community.” Brig. Gen. Jon T. Thomas, 86th AW commander, was also present to share his gratitude for retirees. “I recognize your contributions to See retireeS, Page 2

721st APS Port dawgs move cargo, reach milestone Story and photos by Staff Sgt. Leslie Keopka 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Cheers of happiness and celebration filled the 721st Aerial Port Squadron when one of their aerial porters reached a significant milestone in his career Oct. 16 on Ramstein. Kasper Chevalier, 721st Aerial Port Squadron aerial porter and native of the Netherlands, reached his 2,000th aerial port expeditor, or APEX, cargo load.

In 2010, after working for the Air Force for only two years, he reached his 500th APEX milestone and only a year later reached 1,000. “When you talk to Kasper, you get the ‘Excellence in All We Do’ feel from him,” said 1st Lt. Denver Barrows, 721st APS ramp services officer in charge. “He definitely loves the mission, loves the Airmen and is always striving for process improvements for the mission and personnel.” The APEX mission is one of Air Mobility Command’s velocity initiatives, created as a way

to expedite cargo loading without the presence of loadmasters. APEX is unique in the sense that the cargo loaders are not traditional loadmasters; they are aerial transporters that are hand-picked to attend a three-week course to learn the APEX mission. Chevalier is one of the few APEX personnel who are qualified on both the C-17 Globemaster III and the C-5 Galaxy aircraft. His dual training and the APS personnel have helped him reach this significant See cargo, Page 3

Cybersecurity: Everyone's business

COMMENTARY

by Lt. Col Brandon Robinson 86th Communications Squadron commander We live in an environment that is made up of ones and zeroes. It is more connected now than ever before. The Internet touches just about everything around us, whether we realize it or not. Your computer, mobile and home phone, TV, game console, watch, car, music player, refrigerator, security system, air conditioning, heating system and almost any other electronic device can now be connected online. While this can be convenient, it can also be scary. You need to make sure you strike the proper balance between an acceptable level of risk and being productive. This applies at work just as much as it does at home. Stressing this importance, the president deemed this October as National Cyber Security Awareness Month. To that end, here are some quick tips to help guide you as you navigate the new frontier — the cyber domain. • Create strong passwords. If you can use at least a two-step verification process, use it. A

number of companies and websites are now asking for extra validation information to protect your accounts. This is to put an extra layer of protection on accessing your information beyond just a username and password. • Use up-to-date anti-virus protection. Using anti-virus software prevents, detects and, in most cases, removes malicious software on your computer. In a lot of cases, it is your last line of defense. • Keep your system’s software up to date. Much like using antivirus software, having all your programs up to date potentially prevents unwanted exploitation of program vulnerabilities. • Routinely back up your data someplace other than the same system your information is already on. Do not allow your computer to be a single point of failure for vital information you could never recover if lost. • Watch out for phishing scams. If it’s too good to be true, it probably is. Look at the source of the email. Does it look suspicious? When at work, was the email electronically signed? When in doubt, contact the source of the email through other means

to verify its authenticity. • Be careful when using public wireless access points or hotspots. Use a virtual private network, also known as a VPN, or secure application. Without proper precautions, do not conduct important activities such as banking or transmitting sensitive information in the open on public networks. • Limit the amount of personal information you post online and use privacy settings to avoid sharing too much of your personal data. Yes, social media is a very good means of keeping in contact with others, but it can also be used to track or target your activities if you don’t take the proper steps to ensure your privacy. Too much personal information about yourself can potentially allow your information to be used for harmful purposes. • Pay attention to your children’s online activities. Our most precious resource needs to be educated on Internet safety just as much as we do. Stay engaged with how they connect and who they interact with online. • Online banking can be safe if conducted properly. Watch your finances closely for abnormal

Is the site using secure protocols, such as HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure? Are they are reputable sites? What is their privacy policy? These are the questions that should be asked before using them. Whether we believe it or not, cyber security is everyone’s business. As the ways we use technology increase all around us, our lives become easier and more connected. However, being constantly connected brings increased risk. No one is immune to cyber risks. As a country, we face constant cyber threats against our capabilities within the cyber arena. As individuals, without the proper precautions, cyber risks threaten our identity, finances and privacy. Since our way of life depends on technology, cybersecurity is important. We each have a role to play in cyber security as it is a shared responsibility, both personally and professionally.

remind retirees of their benefits,” Belt said. “A lot of retirees have busy lives and forget about what the military still offers them.” While the RAO provided the structure for the event, it was the retirees who filled the building with warmth and character. “Seeing the retirees come together and realize that they have a place to come and rekindle old acquaintances and reminisce, it gives a warm and fuzzy feeling,” Belt said. This event demonstrated Ramstein’s thankfulness for its retiree community. Event organizers hope to see even more people return for next year’s events. If retirees need additional information, the RAO is located on Ramstein, Bldg. 2120, room 108, or can be reached by telephone at 06371-47-5486.

Kaiserslautern American save the Air Force time and money by doing the downloading and uploading of cargo while the assigned aircraft personnel are on crew rest or performing other preflight duties. They are out doing the job while the others are accomplishing other tasks so the aircrew can expedite the alert to takeoff process. Cargo can range from

large vehicles to medical equipment. Loadmasters and APEX personnel are trained on specific qualifications and have a very small margin of error to work with. “Our intentions are to develop Airmen’s qualifications that will ultimately lead to them being considered for the program. We only send our very best to APEX training,”

Page 3 Barrows said. “There are very few slots a year to attend the specialized training, and we rely heavily on evaluators like Kasper to help us determine who we choose.” Chevalier said he plans to continue to train and mentor

the Airmen around him. “This is not a one-man show; it is all about the team,” Chevalier said. “I can’t push pallets by myself. It is truly an honor to help take care of American aircraft, cargo and Airmen.”

KMC to hold Fall Cleanup event by Master Sgt. Edward J. Seeley Sr. Facilities Excellence Team superintendent Cleaning our work areas and residences is sometimes neglected due to the busy operational tempo of the KMC. Designating time specifically for the upkeep of our facilities helps to remind us that a clean work and living area improves the working environment and the appearance of our on-base housing to our residents and visitors. This is why the 86th Airlift Wing, alongside U.S. Army Garrison Rheinland-Pfalz, is hosting a Fall Cleanup event scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. Nov. 3 and end at 4 p.m. Nov. 4. A “clean where you work” day will be on Nov. 3 for cleaning administrative and industrial facilities, grounds and common areas across the KMC by facility managers and building occupants. Objectives for this day include collecting litter, pulling weeds, trimming overgrown shrubs, tidying plant beds, removing tree limbs and pine cones, raking, and placing debris into biodegradable bags. Interior suggestions include cleaning stairwells, entries, carpets, and storage rooms, purging old files, washing windows and minor touch-up painting. The standard areas of responsibility extend 100 feet in all directions from buildings, including nearby parking lots and sidewalks. According to Marc Fischer, KMC U-Fix-It store customer representative, facility managers may check out many types of hand and

power tools, weed eaters, hedge trimmers, power washers, rakes, shovels, etc., that can help facility managers get the work done. The KMC U-Fix-It store is located on Ramstein, Bldg. 505, and can be reached at 480-5034. Store hours are from 7 to 11:30 a.m. and 12:15 to 4 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and from 7 to 11:30 a.m. and 12:15 to 2:45 p.m. on Fridays. A “clean where you live” day will be Nov. 4 and will focus on cleaning military family housing exteriors. Dorm occupants are also included. Goals for this day include weeding, trimming, raking and placing debris into bio bags. “Take the time to attend to your communities, including common areas like playgrounds, walkways and areas around the underground trash containers,” said Staff Sgt. Irina P. Henderson, KMC Facilities Excellence Team augmentee staff. “Though participation is mandatory for housing residents, this is a great opportunity to team with your neighbors to foster community pride in the areas where you live and play,” said Chief Master Sgt. Jeffrey Kernodle, 786th Civil Engineer Squadron. “This model of responsibility not only shows your pride, but models an era of responsibility to your children.” “The KMC Self-Help Store has a variety of equipment, tools and materials available to assist in this spring cleanup,” said Carl Liebhardt, KMC Self-Help Store customer See cleanuP, Page 7

American immigrant identity: Internal conflicts in a foreign land by Airman 1st Class Lane Plummer 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Editor's notE: This is the first part in a threepart series covering Col. Seung Paik's journey from his early years as a struggling immigrant to where he is now and the people who affected his life in between. Col. Seung U. Paik, U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa financial analysis and budget division, handles money. His passion, however, lies in taking time to share stories he has accumulated throughout his life and the lessons they have taught him with his coworkers. Sometimes he’ll even share his story of being an immigrant boy who was born in South Korea but raised 6,500 miles away in a Chicago suburb. Born in Seoul, South Korea, in 1970, Seung was brought into a household with two older sisters, Hui Jung and Hye Jung, and his mom and dad, Sun Ja and Nack Po. His parents were welleducated. Sun Ja was a pharmacist and Nack Po was a college graduate with a bachelor’s degree in journalism. They were frugal with the money they had, eating mostly home-cooked meals of rice, seaweed, fish and cabbage. What the family needed was all that was purchased. In 1971, a year after Seung’s birth, the Paik family packed their belongings and migrated to Chicago. The family planted their uprooted origins in the middle of a suburban neighborhood on the outreach of the big city after purchasing a small home. Sun Ja and Nack Po now had to find jobs; however, an obstacle taller than they could climb stood between them and their deserved careers: the English language. By the time they arrived in Chicago, Sun Ja and Nack Po could only speak English at a third-grade level. In the U.S., if an immigrant hadn’t

learned a competent level of English, almost every door to a top-drawer job slammed shut and locked on them. Thus, Seung’s parents began their American lives working at a dry cleaning facility 12 hours a day, seven days a week. Because of this, their kids were left the key to the house and became “latchkey kids,” children who returned from school to an empty home because their parents were away at work or children who were often left at home with little parental supervision. “In this day and age, they would’ve gone to jail for doing that,” Seung said. “When I woke up in the morning to get ready for school, my parents would already be gone, and by the time my sisters and I came home from school, they’d still be gone.” Soon after the school day was over, Seung and his sisters walked home and began the daily routine of completing homework and waiting for their mom and dad to come home, cook dinner and talk with them. Hours would go by before the oldest sister would receive a call from Sun Ja. Answering in subsequent “yeps,” the young girl ran through mom’s daily checkup. “Alright, mom will be home in time to cook dinner.

Col. Seung U. Paik

Love you,” their mom would say, her accent still harboring the dominant Hangul alphabet she carried from South Korea. Despite Sun Ja’s fragmented English, her daughter still understood what she was trying to say. “We didn’t have a baby sitter or a nanny. Mom and dad couldn’t afford them, and occasionally the neighbors would help watch us. That’s how we grew up,”

Seung reflects. “It was three kids fending for themselves. That was our elementary years all the way through high school.” Seung looks out his office window, the bright sunshine of Germany’s sky illuminating his short, black and grey hair. He leans back in his chair, his hands peacefully laid on its arms, and stares down at his desk. His soft See immigrant, Page 8

Airman answers calling by Senior Airman Damon Kasberg 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Editor’s notE: This is the first of three articles in a series highlighting the accomplishments of Airmen after receiving training from the Air Force. On a pitch black October morning in 2002, the humming of engines from an Ilyushin Il-62 commercial airliner faded as it taxied away from Manas Air Base, Kyrgyzstan. It didn’t get far. The jet crashed and burst into flames after running off the tarmac into the grass and veering into the nearby woods. Within seconds of the crash, alarms roared from hand-held radios throughout the makeshift fire station. Firefighters quickly donned their uniforms and rushed out of their tents to respond to the accident. Nineteen-year-old Jesse Burkhard was among these first responders. “When I woke up and heard ‘plane down’ I was startled,” recalled now Master Sgt. Burkhard, 86th Civil Engineer Squadron assistant chief of health and safety. “I didn’t know what to do, but luckily I had a good crew chief ahead of me who calmed me down and got me to our truck. I had been out of technical training for a year, and this was my very first deployment.” Burkhard was the lowest ranking of three assigned to the only rescue truck on the base. From the back seat he remembers seeing nothing in the darkness but a mushroom cloud of smoke and fire. “It was the biggest fire I’d seen,” Burkhard said. ImmIgrant, from Page 7

voice lowers in volume. “I look back and I think to myself ‘It’s a miracle that we survived,’” he said. Fast forward to high school. Finding the right group of kids to hang out with wasn’t hard for Seung. As he was about to enter John Hersey High School as a freshman, his demeanor was different. He was no longer the shy immigrant boy sitting apart from all the other kids in the classrooms; he was walking in the same groups of white kids that crowded the width of the school halls. He was firm about not letting anything hold him back from fully identifying himself as a white American. The largest obstacle was the Korean culture waiting for him every night when he returned home. Seung wouldn’t let people inside his house, fearing they would smell the starchy, half-sweet and half-

As the team raced closer, he started making out the shape of the jet through the thick, black smoke. A couple hundred feet away from the burning wreckage, the truck’s tires spun furiously but wouldn’t move another inch; it was stuck. The firefighters exited their vehicle, threw on their remaining equipment and sprinted the rest of the way. With 75 pounds on their back, they made it to the site, but their job had only just begun. Their role on the rescue truck was to find and save people, and, if necessary, pull them from the danger zone, treat them and put them safe in the hands of the emergency medical team. “The only gear we put on is our self-contained breathing apparatus packs and masks, and we’re ready to go,” Burkhard said. The team got in position, but walls of flames blocked Burkhard and the others from entering the aircraft. Instead, they performed a perimeter sweep around the jet looking for any survivors. Of the nine individuals who boarded the aircraft that morning, eight had been accounted for. The rescue team needed to find one more amongst the heat, fire and explosions. While others run from disasters, Burkhard was born to a bloodline of firefighters and knew at a young age it was his calling. He followed in the footsteps of his father, grandfather and great-grandfather. Originally joining the military to receive world-class firefighting training, he found more. “The Air Force has one of the best fire academies in the world,” Burkhard said. “That’s why I joined.

gluey odor of steaming rice. It was a comforting aroma that tells someone they’re entering a Korean home. He worried they would come across his family and judge him from what they saw. “I remember once my parents opened up the window and yelled outside of it with their broken English,” Seung laughed. “I would want to be a certain distance from them because I didn’t want my friends to hear any of that.” He clarified to his friends and teachers that his nationality was a U.S. citizen born in Chicago. He told them his ethnicity was KoreanAmerican. “Part of me had this identity crisis because part of me was like, ‘I love Korean food. I speak Korean. I go to a Korean church,’” Seung explained. “But all my friends were white, my schools were white and I loved white American culture. Part of me was confused, a bit divided, and a bit ashamed.”

I thought I would only stay four years to receive all my certifications, but I love being in the Air Force and what the fire department is in the Air Force.” From the beginning of Burkhard’s career, the training he’s received from the Air Force and mentorship from NCOs has provided him with the skills to confront disasters and life-threatening emergencies. “The training never stops,” Burkhard said. “It starts at tech school where you learn the basics, and that training is always there. Now it’s great to bring the experience and knowledge I’ve gained from my career to the Airmen. It can mean life or death if we’re not fast enough connecting a hose or can’t get water to the line in a certain time limit.” It was this training that allowed him and his team to locate and recover that final survivor 13 years ago. “It was a scary situation, but we found everyone who was on board,” he said. “It’s a sigh of relief knowing everyone is safe. I’ve known firefighters who weren’t able to get everyone out. I couldn’t imagine the feeling.” With all the survivors safe, the rescue team focused their efforts on supporting the other firefighters. U.S. Air Force and Kyrgyzstan firefighters worked side by side extinguishing the raging flames. Exhausted, the men finally caught their breath after four hours of dragging fire hoses, switching air tanks and dodging explosions, and, as the final embers were quenched, the sun’s light began to break through the darkness.

Seung grew into his American life, and it was right before he graduated from high school that he finally took time to reflect on who he really was. “I went through this period of confusion,” Seung recalled. “‘What are my roots? What is my heritage? What is my ethnicity? Why don’t I embrace it the way I should?’” Seung found ways to keep his mind off the constant deep questions. By the time he was at the tail end of his high school career, his gymnastics skills caught the eyes of many colleges around the country. Amidst his identity crisis, he found that if there was one thing he was good at, it was his agility and balance. One day Seung was approached by a school in Colorado Springs, Colorado, after they had been impressed by his eye-popping gymnastic ability. It was a different college from the others; it wasn’t going to be four to six years of learning

and then back to find a job in the world for Seung. This school came with a contract that required an oath of office and a pledge to defend his adopted country. The Air Force Academy approached Seung and offered him a chance to join the academy as a gymnast. When Seung sat his parents down and broke the news about joining the Air Force, Sun Ja was shocked. She repeatedly asked him, “Seung, wouldn’t you rather stay closer to home?” Her eyes said everything to him; she was coming to terms with her grown-up baby boy leaving her to defend the U.S. Contrasting his emotional wife, Nack Po sat up, and his mouth stretched subtly into a soft smile. His chest slowly rose. His eyes met with Seung's, and his head gently nodded in approval. It finally came together for Seung; the military would help him discover his identity.

Team Ramstein speaks out against domestic violence by Barbara Cox Ramstein Family Advocacy outreach manager Team Ramstein took a stand against domestic violence by participating in the Speak Out Against Domestic Violence event Oct. 8 on Ramstein. The event was held as part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month and featured an all-male panel to not only speak about violence against women but also against men and the effects on children. Capt. Armand Courtemanche, U.S. Air Forces in Europe protocol officer, Chief Master Sgt. Kaleth Wright, 3rd Air Force command chief, Senior Airman Charles Jackson, 86th Medical Operations Squadron mental health technician, and Cesar Alvarez, 86th MDOS Health Promotion coordinator, discussed the different aspects of domestic violence. “One in three women and one in four men have been physically abused,” Courtemanche said. Using data from the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Courtemanche explained that people often stay in abusive relationships because their partner has threatened to kill them, their children or their pets if they leave. Wright explained economic abuse and how abusers often control their partners by not allowing them to work or manage any of the household finances.

Cesar Alvarez, 86th Medical Operations Squadron Health Promotion coordinator, addresses the impact of domestic abuse on children during the Speak Out Against Domestic Violence event Oct. 8 on Ramstein. Alvarez was one of four members on an all-male panel to focus on domestic violence against women. Though men are also abused, the Department of Justice reports that more male offenders are reported than female.

For instance, Wright described a case in which a spouse had to contact a first sergeant because they were unable to purchase food while the military member was deployed. Situations such as this are considered neglect and should be addressed by military leaders and family advocacy.

According to Jackson and the NCADV, one in seven women and one in 18 men have been stalked by an intimate partner during their lifetime to the point which they felt fearful that themselves or someone close to them would be harmed or killed. Finally, Alvarez enlightened the

crowd on the effects domestic violence has on children, even if they do not directly witness the violence. Alvarez said that children who live in households where abuse takes place are more likely to live with anxiety and fear. These children may also act more aggressively because they learn that violence is “normal.” Additionally, according to the West Virginia Coalition Against Domestic Violence, these children may develop sleep problems, headaches, and are at risk for alcohol and drug abuse as they grow up. Though the Department of Justice shows that more male offenders are reported than female, there are men who are victims of violence as well. Resources for individuals and families are available, including Ramstein Family Advocacy, the Ramstein Domestic Abuse Victim Advocate, chaplains, Military and Family Life Consultants, Sexual Assault Response Coordinators, and unit leadership. Those who were unable to attend the event are invited to Resilience University from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday on Ramstein, Bldg. 2104. There will be more than 20 45-minute workshops on topics such as tactical dating, communication, stress management, picky eaters, toddler tantrums and more. The USO will sponsor a free lunch, therefore RSVPs are required in advance. For reservations, call 479-2370 or 06371-46-2370.

More than 30 American volunteers help to sort and pack donations for refugees in the Kaiserslautern area Oct. 17 at the Atlantic Academy in Kaiserslautern. Because of the language barrier, the academy helped in collecting items such as blankets, dishes, toys, bags and more from Americans. For the Atlantic Academy, this project was a way to connect the German and American communities, and for KMC members, it was a possibility to engage with their host community.

Helpline gives sexual assault victims additional resource by Holly Logan-Arrington Robins Air Force Base Public Affairs ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. — The Department of Defense has given sexual assault victims a resource that helps them take control of their recovery process. Established in 2011, the DOD Safe Helpline is a crisis support service for members of the DOD community affected by sexual assault. Safe Helpline provides live, one-on-one support and information to the worldwide DOD community. The service is confidential, anonymous, secure and available 24/7 by click, call or text to provide victims with the help they need anytime, anywhere. Lisa Matney, 78th Air Base Wing sexual assault response coordinator, said the helpline will provide an avenue for victims to get additional support and encouragement to come forward and make a restricted or unrestricted report of sexual assault. The helpline provides live, confidential help through a secure instant-messaging format at SafeHelpline.org. The website also contains vital information about recovering from and reporting a sexual assault. Pamela Davis, the sexual assault prevention and response victim advocate at Robins Air Force Base, said the helpline gives sexual assault victims the additional

support they may need. “Some victims need additional avenues of support to obtain the courage to come forward, and this resource can provide that additional support,” Davis said. Safe Helpline also provides live, confidential help over the phone. The telephone helpline staff can even transfer callers to base sexual assault response coordinators, Veterans Benefits Administration coordinators, Military OneSource, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, and civilian sexual assault service providers. The phone number is the same in the U.S. and worldwide via the Defense Switched Network. Safe Helpline can also provide referrals via text. By texting one’s zip code or base name to 55-247 inside the U.S. or 202-470-5546 outside the U.S., Safe Helpline will text back contact information for the installation SARC and other resources available on and off base. Message and data rates may apply. In addition to providing information for sexual assault victims, the helpline’s website also offers information for their loved ones to better understand and be able to help in the recovery process. “Individuals can use the web link to search for resources for their installation, so no matter where the person lives they can get help,” Matney said.

Sauerbraten

First of all, what is a Sauerbraten? Essentially, it’s a beef roast. The best piece will be what a German butcher would call flache Schulter (flat shoulder)

Preparation Cut the vegetables into 1” dices. Prepare a marinade for the meat using the white wine, vinegar, salt, pepper corns, sugar, mustard seeds, carrots, leeks, celery, juniper berries and bay leaf. Make sure you have enough marinade to cover the meat! Let the meat sit in the marinade for 4 to 6 days. Take the meat out of the marinade, and place it in a strainer to let the marinade drip off the meat, then using a paper towel, pat the meat dry before roasting. Save the vegetables and marinade for the sauce. Take a pot big enough to roast the meat and make the sauce in. The best fat to roast the meat with will be ghee (you can also buy it on the economy called Butaris). On high heat, melt the ghee and roast the meat from all sides, put the meat

Ingredients • For four persons : 600 to 700 grams of beef • Salt • Pepper (corns and ground) • Sugar • White wine, Red wine • Vinegar (a simple one will do

• • • • •

- no need to take for example balsamic or any other fancy one)

Carrots, Leeks, Celery Mustard seeds Juniper berries Bay leaf Tomato paste

aside and put some tomato paste and the vegetables in the pot and roast them on medium heat. Add a sip of red wine and let it reduce. Repeat this process 3-4 times. Put the meat in the sauce and let all slowly simmer for about 3 hours. Add some of the marinade bit by bit taking care to stir from time-to-time so it doesn’t burn. Add the desired amount of spices (salt, ground pepper, sugar). Strain the sauce. Cut the roast into slices and serve with salted potatoes and red cabbage as side dishes for a nice fall dinner.

of Hispanic families, there’s not really such a thing as an extended family, they’re all just family,” Ledesma said. “Grandmas, uncles, aunts, they were all as important as mom and dad in our family. And with my grandmother, when she talked you better listen!” Ledesma also touched on topics of military service; and not only the role of Hispanics in the service, but the role that leaders of Hispanics in the military can play in the professional development of those Soldiers. “When I was a young Soldier, it was a mark of pride not to need help. Even if I really needed help, I’d never ask,” Ledesma said. “It may not be the best way, but that’s the way I was, and that’s the way a lot of young Hispanic Soldiers are now too. They aren’t going to ask you for help; you’re going to have to know as leaders when they need it.” Ledesma’s comments were followed by a performance of a traditional ‘Cumbia,’ a type of Mexican song, by Angela Chavarria. The formal celebration culminated with a salsa demonstration, after which guests were invited to sample Mexican food provided by a local restaurant.

16th Sustainment Brigade joins multinational fuel company

British army Capt. Charles Frost, Commando Logistic Regiment, acting as company first sergeant, hands the Modular Combined Petroleum Unit formation over to French army Capt. Mohamed Aboudi, 1st Petroleum Support Company commander, Oct. 7 in Zaragoza, Spain, for the NATO exercise Trident Juncture. Bringing together 36,000 troops from more than 35 countries, Trident Juncture 15 is the largest NATO exercise since 2002.

Story and photos by Sgt. 1st Class Michael O'Brien 16th Sustainment Brigade ZARAGOZA, Spain — Joining French army counterparts near Lyon, France, Oct. 5, 515th Transportation Company Soldiers then completed a 700-mile convoy from Smith Barracks, Germany, to the Joint Logistics Support Group Headquarters near Zaragoza, Spain. “These fine transportation Soldiers have convoyed more than a thousand miles to support almost every nation within the alliance,” said Capt. Nicholas Greco, 515th Transportation Company commander. “The opportunity the 16th Sustainment Brigade has here is to decentralize operations by empowering junior leaders, allowing us to support U.S. Army Europe and NATO.” The 16th Sustainment Brigade demonstrated their adaptability by contributing a platoon to the French army 1st

Petroleum Support Company with mission command of the multinational bulk fuel company called Modular Combined Petroleum Unit. Other countries composing the MCPU include the United Kingdom, Spain and Italy. “As a part of the MCPU, we get to work with fuel units like ours from other NATO countries that we haven't previously had the opportunity to work with before,” said U.S. Army 1st Lt. Stevie Hasenfus, a platoon leader with 515th Trans. Co. “It will be exciting to practice convoy operations with our international allies at the exercise.” The U.S. and French units worked together last month during an exercise testing the interoperability of both units’ petroleum equipment. The convoy continued to build the relationship by introducing both nations’ convoy operations and procedures. “The convoy to Spain with the Americans was a good experience, especially learn-

ing the radio procedures and the vehicle intervals,” said French army 1st Lt. Marie Muller, a transportation platoon leader with 1st Petroleum Support Company. Arriving at the training area near Zaragoza, the convoy of more than 40 vehicles began to establish the fueling site, integrating with the other contributing nations. “This was a good start for us going into the (NATO) exercise,” said French army Capt. Mohamed Aboudi, 1st Petroleum Support Company commander. “I was happy to share the convoy with my U.S. colleagues.” The MCPU will provide a combined bulk fuel capacity of 25,000 gallons of jet fuel and 5,000 gallons of diesel fuel during Trident Juncture 15, supplying both aerial and ground vehicles. Bringing together 36,000 troops from more than 35 countries, Trident Juncture 15 is the largest NATO exercise since 2002.

U.S. Army Sgt. June Baylon, 515th Transportation Company heavy wheeled vehicle operator, and French army Spc. Cpl. Jacob Abam, 1st Petroleum Support Company, work together Oct. 6 near Carcassone, France, before starting the second day of the convoy to Zaragoza, Spain, for the NATO exercise Trident Juncture. The 1st Petroleum Support Company, along with the 16th Sustainment Brigade and soldiers from the United Kingdom, Spain and Italy constitute the Multinational Combined Petroleum Unit. The MCPU is capable of providing a combined bulk fuel capacity of 25,000 gallons of jet fuel and 5,000 gallons of diesel fuel during Trident Juncture 15.

Hiking the Zugspitze: A walk up Germany’s highest mountain by Karl Weisel U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden Marketing Office WIESBADEN, Germany — We couldn’t have asked for a more glorious day as we neared the summit of Germany’s tallest mountain. After two days of hiking up from Garmisch-Partenkirchen through the Partnach Gorge, a gentle breeze reminded us that concentration was still needed to make it safely up the rock to face the last several hundred meters to the top. Our trip began two days earlier with train rides to Munich and on to Garmisch where we had fortified ourselves with a hearty meal and a couple of beers before vowing to get up early the next morning to start the roughly 10-hour trek. With our water bottles filled and our gear stashed securely in our packs, we headed out across the valley toward the site of the 1936 Winter Olympic ski jump stadium. Another 20 minutes of walking took us to the entrance of the over 700-meter-long Partnach Gorge where our breaths were taken away, not by the exertion, but by the awesome splendor of a mountain carved open by the gushing waters of a glacier-fed river. From there the views continued to dazzle as we began the initial ascent along the Partnach River up to the Bock Hut and then on through the Reintal Valley for a short lunch break at the Reintalanger Hut. It was a pleasure to sit for a few minutes, enjoy a bowl of hot soup and to get a look at some of the other hikers we would encounter again during the ensuing climb up the Zugspitze. The bells of mountain sheep accompanied our footsteps as we began the last stretch of the day up through the Brunntal to the Knorr Hut where we were destined to spend the night. By early afternoon, we had ascended from about 730 meters at the ski jump stadium to 2,057 meters at the hut on the eastern edge of the Zugspitze Plateau. For those of us who had never experienced spending the night in one of the alpine huts, it was a treat to discover they are well-supplied, by helicopter. While the sleeping conditions at the Knorr Hut are a bit like a sleepover, large bays where one shares space with other hikers both washed and unwashed, the kitchen and staff ensure guests are well-fed with traditional German fair. We were awakened the next morning by the sun’s first rays edging their way up the valley and painting the mountain flowers, patches of snow

and cliffsides with soft pastels. As we grabbed a quick coffee, admired the view and rounded up our gear, the first hikers headed up the trail eager to make summit. The ever-present sheep, scrabbling for sparse vegetation among the rocks, accompanied us as we made our way up into the Zugspitze Plateau before beginning the final and most challenging stretch adjacent to the cable car which runs between the Sonn-Alpin lodge and a platform at the top. As we gazed up the steep slope, about 400 meters high in elevation of loose rock and cable-guided cliffside, we prepared for the most spectacular views of surrounding Germany and Austria. After joining the hundreds of tourists who had arrived by cable car at the top, we made the last short climb up a ladder to the cross at the 2,962meter mark. From the summit, we could see hikers making their way up other routes and the Eibsee far below. As our group leader observed after the hike, “Reaching the summit creates a euphoric feeling of flight, camaraderie and serenity. You begin each summit with some degree of doubt, and each step skyward is a step toward overcoming both the physical and mental obstacles in your path.” Our group leader, an experienced alpine hiker who wrote the book “Following Whispers” about his adventures in the Himalayas, said hiking for him is like meditation, “aligning the mind, body and spirit to the

cadence of your boot striking the trail … it’s hugely refreshing.” While there are plenty of opportunities for hitting the trail, the Garmisch area offers a wealth of spectacular areas to explore with well-marked trails. A good hike can still be enjoyed without having to climb Germany's highest peak. The Edelweiss is a great base camp for a hike to the Hohental, another gorge in the area located above Hammersbach. It’s recommended that hikers start with easier walks and make sure they are in good shape before tackling the Zugzpitze. Maps with information are available at the Alpine Adventures in the Edelweiss Lodge. “I was not in the best shape when I first climbed the mountain,” our group leader said about a previous Zugspitze hike. “A fast heart rate, shortness of breath and exhaustion are all possibilities if one hasn’t trained at least a few times a week before the climb. One has to respect the mountain and yourself when gauging whether or not to attempt a summit. If you get winded on a flight of stairs, the Zugspitze is not for you. But the good news is that you can develop a goal-oriented fitness plan ahead of time and reward your days of push ups, running or biking with amazing views from atop Germany’s highest peak.” Hikers should be prepared for anything, from slippery slopes due to rain

or snow, and gusts of wind to sunburn. “In the summer, light rain, dampness and chilly fog are more likely at lower altitude, with snow at higher altitudes,” our group leader said. “That makes it absolutely essential to pack for a variety of weather and temperatures. It adds some weight, but layering can help.” Carrying plenty of water is also essential, although refills are possible at huts along the route. Making reservations at the mountain huts, hotels in Garmisch or the Edelweiss Lodge and Resort well in advance is recommended considering weekends are usually busier than weekdays. Doing a little research in advance, such as picking up a good map or searching online, can help one choose which hut or huts to reserve space for a Zugspitze ascent. The huts are marked along with their names which can be easily searched on Google. Email can be used to make reservations. Conveniently many lodge operators speak English.

Stuttgart’s Stadtmitte (Downtown) is What’s Going On!

By Wendy Payne It was so hard to begin this blog, I didn’t know where to start. Having lived here for over a year now, I can say Stuttgart has been one of my favorite places to live in 23 years of military moves. There is always a fest, concert or an event going on. When I first started blogging, my husband joked that I would run out of things to write about in Baden-Württemberg! Ha… how wrong he was! Today, I am going to write about some of my favorite spots to see in downtown in Stuttgart. Some of the tips are on-going and some are seasonal, but all have been worthwhile even if it is only a trip on the train.

Where to Shop?

By taking the train to Stadtmitte (downtown) instead of the Hauptbahnhof (main train station), you can pop out right at the shopping square. On Saturday, follow this path and you’ll run right into Stuttgart’s Farmer’s Market. While you are there, stop by the famous “guillotine like” elevator at the (modern) clock tower. I emphasize the “modern clock” because there are three city clocks on this one square.

Farmer’s Market

My friend and fellow blogger, Janice Neil-Abad, told me about this wonderful Farmer’s Market. This Saturday market is held every Saturday on  Marktplatz and Schillerplatz, which is located by the church in Stuttgart. This market is the place to find seasonal and fresh flowers, local produce and cheese and is open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. every week.

Karlsplatz Flohmarket (Flea Market)

A flea market  is also held every Saturday  at the city’s Karlsplatz.  Sometimes there are other scheduled events, but a few weeks ago we visited for the first time!  Treasures abound, our teenage son was overwhelmed with all the vinyl, antiques and cool memorabilia for sale.

Seasonal Flohmarkets (Flea Markets)

Every spring and fall Stuttgart is host to some big Flohmarkets, also located on Karlsplatz and Schillerplatz.

Malls

Whether you shop on Königstrasse or in Markthalle, the choices are endless. I try to have a pretty good idea of what I’m shopping for before I head downtown, otherwise my Visa takes a hit. If you see a large % sign in the windows, this means a “sale” is going on. I have found deals in the downtown H&M and C&A stores, including my Dirndl during fest season.

Museums

The Landkreis Museum of BadenWürttemberg  always has something going on. This museum hosted last spring’s Lange Nacht der Museen  (long museum nights) in which the royal crown and jewels of Württemberg were exhibited. Also on the second floor of the museum are  interactive and fun stations for young children. One in particular my tween enjoyed was the “shooting the deer” station with a digital video screen and archery. She got a few bucks. The third floor had a Picasso and a Pollock, which my artist college daughter adored. Be careful not to touch anything on this floor as it is “verboten” (forbidden). In September a the special event was “Mord im Museum” (murder in the museum).

Annual Fests

One of the best things about missing a fest in Germany is that most of them are either annual or bi-annual. This means you have a pretty good chance of going the next time around. The downside is there are so many good fests that it’s hard to hit them all. Stuttgart is no exception.

Sommerfest (Summer Fest)

If you were like me and missed this year’s Sommerfest, take heart that it will be here again next August. The reports from this year’s

fest was that it was amazing with frolicking in the fountain to really good food and beer!

Hamburger Fischmarket (Fish Market)

The Hamburger Fischmarket is held every year at the Karlsplatz, within walking distance from the old Schloss (castle). The varieties and flavors of different seafood cuisine will transport you to the coast. We had so much fun at this fest with pirates on a boat, a traveling lighthouse and Irish music playing gleefully. Some of the tents are very ornate and classy. Others had a walk-up stand to get fried calamari, shrimp, scampi and of course fish and chips. Unexpectedly, a delightful fest, Stuttgart’s  fish fest should not be missed.

Christmas Market (Weihnachtsmarkt) & Ice Rink

Last year we went to Stuttgart’s Christmas Market several times with family and friends. For me the different puff pastries, cocoas (try the white hot chocolate) and large beers makeStuttgart’s Christmas Market so much fun. What is also popular during the holiday season is the ice rink, which was really liked by my children. For a small rental fee, you can try your skating legs out. Of course, for those of us “older in bones,” there is a nice stand where we sipped “Glühwein” (heated spiced red wine drink) while watching the younger ones. The Christmas Market has many artisans and craftsmen who sell hand-made gifts and painted ornaments. By following the crowd to the old city area (Schillerplatz), there you will find the older Christmas market. It seems with every turn the fest continues to go on and on and on. The Christmas Market begins Thanksgiving weekend and goes until Christmas, so enjoy! read the full story at... http://militaryingermany.com/ stuttgarts-stadtmitte-downtown-is-whats-going-on

Great city trips, fun playgrounds for kids, delicious recipes and much more.
