Ramstein teams with German partners during exercise by Tech. Sgt. Travis Edwards 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Ramstein Airmen, in concert with German disaster response authorities, participated in a combined major accident response exercise, or MARE, Oct. 18 on Ramstein. “This exercise has been a partnership effort between our host nation and the installation,” said Brig. Gen. Patrick X. Mordente, 86th Airlift Wing commander. “My vision for this event was to come together with our local German responders and perform seamlessly and effectively during a simulated on-base accident, and I am very pleased with the outcome.” The exercise tested German and U.S. first responders’ ability to react to a massive on-base accident, from initial notification to the recovery phase. The MARE was an opportunity to train and rehearse roles and responsibilities in a crisis between See exercise, Page 3

Obama activates reserves for Operation United Assistance by Nick Simeone Department of Defense News, Defense Media Activity WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama has authorized the Defense Department to call up a small number of National Guard or reserve troops that possess special skills needed

to aid efforts in stopping the spread of the deadly Ebola virus in West Africa. Obama issued an executive order authorizing the secretaries of defense and homeland security to order the Selected Reserve and certain members of the Individual Ready Reserve to deploy to West Africa, where as many as 4,000 U.S. troops are headed,

most of them to Liberia, to support U.S. and international efforts to stop the rapidly spreading virus that has killed nearly 4,500 people. U.S. officials said Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel requested the order after determining that specialists with skill sets needed by Operation United Assistance, including engi-

neers, comptrollers and religious specialists, were in short supply, or to replace active-duty personnel. Already, elements of the Kentucky Air National Guard are in Dakar, Senegal, to establish a staging base for the Liberia-based mission, having volunteered and deployed before the presidential order was issued.

KMC to hold Joint Passport Outreach Day 409th CSB supports RT14 The U.S. Consulate in Frankfurt and the KMC passport offices are scheduled to host a fall Passport Outreach Day from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Nov. 5 in Bldg. 2402 on Ramstein. This event will serve as an outreach to provide the KMC with expedited service for passport applications prior to the holiday travel season. Consulate representatives will be on-site to accept tourist passport and consular report of birth-abroad applications. In addition, representatives from Social Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, and Immigrant Visa Services will be available to answer questions related to immigration, naturalization, visas, citizenship and Social Security. The local USO will also be there to support the event by serving refreshments. The Ramstein and Kleber Kaserne passport offices have detailed checklists for tourist passports and reports of births abroad on their websites to aid in filling out applications prior to the event. For access to these documents, visit www.ramstein.af.mil/library/factsheets/ factsheet.asp?id=17152 (Air Force personnel) or www.rp.army.mil/Directorates/ DHR/passports.html (Army personnel).

by Rachel Clark 409th Contracting Support Brigade Soldiers with the 409th Contracting Support Brigade, headquartered at Sembach Kaserne, visited Yavoriv, Ukraine, Sept. 15 to 26 to provide contracting support for Rapid Trident 14. RT14 is a Ukrainian-led, U.S. Army Europe-supported field-training exercise that focused on peacekeeping and stability operations. The 409th team was responsible for contracting services that included transportation, portable latrines, hand-washing stations and material handling equipment. “These contracting officers provide flexibility in planning, preparation and execution,” said Scott P. Connors, USAREUR training and exercise planner. Maj. Armando V. Corral, contracting officer with the 928th Contracting Battalion, 409th CSB, said part of the 409th mission was to work with partnering nations and local contractors to ensure continued services for the exercise. “The significance of our efforts this year for RT14 is even more important given the current situation in Eastern Ukraine,” Corral said. “We were on the ground working with foreign militaries, foreign contractors, and we were still able to provide first-rate contracting support.” Corral said RT14 supported interoperability among Ukraine, U.S., NATO and Partnership for Peace member nations. Fifteen countries took part in the exercise with the participation of approximately 1,300 personnel. “Contracting enables these exercises to happen by providing services that reduce the amount of (support) Soldiers on the ground,” said Col. William J. Bailey, 409th CSB commander. “We are here building relationships, and we are building infrastructure.”

Ramstein Airmen and their German partners. “Our German counterparts from the Kaiserslautern area brought a wealth of knowledge and experience to the scenario,” said Col. Lee Smith, 86th Airlift Wing vice commander. “Together we used our skills to test our interoperability and coordination during a crisis, and I am very pleased with the results.” This was the first time Team Ramstein members and

Kaiserslautern American German authorities conducted a response and recovery in about two years, with the last one held at Rhine Ordnance Barracks. The exercise went very well, including the communication and cooperation between American and German first responders, said Gudrun HeßSchmidt, Kaiserslautern deputy county commissioner. This exercise gave German disaster respondents a better understanding of Ramstein procedures to better carry out a rescue and recovery plan. The training and inspec-

tion portion of the exercise was used to ensure both agencies are able to respond safely together and improve existing procedures should a real incident occur. “This exercise was outstanding,” said Lt. Col. Paul Silas, 86th Civil Engineer Squadron commander and emergency operations center director for the exercise. “We responded and identified everything thrown at us — we were able to handle what came our way because of the proactive thinking of our Airmen and German partners here.”

Center for Disease Control exposure category,” said Dr. (Capt.) Michael D’Amore, 37th Airlift Squadron and 86th Aerospace Medicine Squadron flight surgeon. “Additionally, Airmen from the 86th Airlift Wing that are located in the areas of the Ebola outbreak are kept within secure Department of Defense areas. These areas are protected and monitored to prevent active or contagious cases of Ebola from coming into contact with our Airmen. Furthermore, all people within these DOD areas are monitored several times daily for any signs of symptoms.” Lt. Col. Juan Ramirez, 86th AMDS public health flight commander, said Airmen assigned to Ramstein will be monitored upon their return. “Upon arrival, it is mandatory for all Airmen who are stationed here to have their temperature taken twice a day by a medical professional at the Ramstein clinic for 21 days,” he said. Because aircrew are constantly traveling in and out of these areas, they will be required to monitor their own temperature and report them twice a week to the flight medicine clinic at Ramstein. In addition to temperature checks, screening processes are completed before and after they go on missions into West Africa. “Airmen are tracked and screened prior to departing and upon return,” D’Amore said. “We track countries visited and potential contact with indigenous people, animals or exotic foods.” Although most of the

Nearly 30 Airmen walk down the flightline Oct. 15 after arriving on Ramstein from West Africa. Any personnel traveling into Ramstein from Ebola-infected areas will be medically screened upon their arrival and cleared by public health.

Airmen from the 86th AW traveling into infected areas are considered transient aircrew and have minimal time on the ground in places like Liberia, the aircrews are educated and prepared on necessary protocol and procedures in the unlikely event an infected patient manifests symptoms on a U.S. Air Force aircraft. “All aircrew members have been briefed in quarterly safety meetings, and since then, several Flight Crew Information Files have been distributed on the topic of Ebola,” D’Amore said. “FCIFs are mandatory documents that must be read prior to their next flight, and they include information as well as procedures to

protect our Airmen from exposure to Ebola, prevention of the virus on U.S. Air Force aircraft, and what to do in the event of a passenger presenting symptoms while in flight.” For transient passengers returning from Ebola-infected areas landing at Ramstein, measures are in place to monitor those travelers passing through the base. Like aircrews, passengers will also be pre-screened before departing infected areas. “As personnel redeploy from West Africa to return to Ramstein, they’ll be screened and cleared by 86th Medical Group public health staff,” Ramirez said.

transiting through Ramstein will have their temperatures taken at plane side, with further monitoring continued at their final destinations. With President Barack Obama’s announcements to increase U.S. efforts to respond to the Ebola virus epidemic, U.S. Africa Command is working with the U.S. Agency for International Development to deliver much-needed support. Part of AFRICOM’s effort is the tactical theater airlift provided by the 86th AW, now in conjunction with the 86th MDG’s efforts to educate and keep Airmen and the KMC safe.

“Containing this Ebola outbreak is a necessity on a global and national scale,” D’Amore said. “Therefore, the Airmen of the 86th AW are vital for support of DOD and national efforts. It’s exciting to be a part of a large and evolving operation such as this. One of the main functions of medical personnel in the military is to prevent the spread of disease throughout the fighting force, and that is a big reason why we train and prepare service members to help in this outbreak that now has international attention.”

CASF provides service members with extra care Story and photos by Airman 1st Class Michael Stuart 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


hen service members are injured downrange and need to receive specialized medical attention, they go to Landstuhl Regional Medical Center to be treated. They are then transported, by the Contingency Aeromedical Staging Facility on Ramstein, from LRMC to the Ramstein flightline where they receive care before they are transported elsewhere for further attention. The CASF plays a major role in the transportation and care of wounded warriors returning from deployed locations. “At the CASF we transport patients who were downrange from Landstuhl Regional Medical Center to, usually, Joint-Base Andrews in Maryland,” said Staff Sgt. Andrezej Wozniak, 86th Aerospace Medicine CASF operations NCO in charge. “From there, the patients go somewhere else stateside, wherever they’re receiving additional care.” Regardless of the injury, if a patient comes back from a deployment, the CASF takes care of them. In an average month, the facility supports approximately 250 to 300 patients with a wide array of injuries. “We see all sorts of patients from sprained ankles to roadside bombings and shootings,” Wozniak said. “We see it all.” Senior Airman Kheona Ratliff, CASF health service manager, said the CASF makes the transition as

smooth as possible for the patients and ensures patients don’t incur any further injuries. Since the main objective at the CASF is patient movement, as well as hospitality, the team is very hands on and attentive to the patients. “At my other assignments I was checking medical records and wasn’t feeling as satisfied as I am now,” Ratliff said. “I work closely with the wounded warriors and like interacting with them. Being in the CASF makes

me feel like I’m making a positive impact in the Air Force.” The facility located on Ramstein is one of six CASFs in the Air Force. Depending upon where a medical Airman is stationed will determine whether or not they will work at a CASF. “When I worked downrange in an ICU (intensive care unit) in Bagram, we sent a lot of people over here, so

I was able to see another side of the patient movement process,” Wozniak said. The CASF first opened its doors to service members in 2003 during operations Iraqi and Enduring Freedom. As long as Airmen, Soldiers, Sailors and Marines need support, transportation and medical care from the battlefield, the CASF will remain available with open arms to help every way they can.

Airman takes LEAD in step to USAF Academy by Senior Airman Timothy Moore 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs There are several ways an enlisted Airman can make the transition to be an Air Force officer. They can go through Air Force ROTC via various means, be selected for Officer Training School or go to the U.S. Air Force Academy through the Leaders Encouraging Airman Development program. LEAD is a program that allows commanders to seek out outstanding and deserving qualified Airmen for appointments to the academy and Air Force ROTC scholarship programs, and one Airman from the 86th Vehicle Readiness Squadron was nominated for the program. As part of the program, Airman 1st Class Brianna

Walberg, 86th VRS vehicle operator, spent four days at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado learning about the different aspects of being an official Air Force student. “We learned about the different sports, extra curricula and facilities they offer,” Walberg said. “You must take at least five classes each semester, and every cadet must play a sport.” Walberg and a select few other Airmen and high school seniors toured the academy accompanied by current cadets. “My favorite part was how much we got to interact with the cadets,” Walberg said. “Everyone was honest. No one tried to sugarcoat how the academy worked; it’s rough but always worth it in the end.” Walberg said she always wanted to be an

officer and make a difference, even if just in some small way. “I enlisted and got to do that,” Walberg said. “I know I can reach my full potential and make a bigger difference as an officer.” Walberg said the program is for people who are seriously considering the academy and have already begun the process. However, she did learn how difficult it is to keep up with everything once admitted. “I was so nervous at first,” Walberg said. “I’m happy my academy liaison officer put me up for this program. I don’t want to commission any other way now.” For more information about the LEAD program and other commissioning opportunities, contact the Ramstein Education Center at 480-2032 or 06371-47-2032.

Saving water starts with you Last year, Air Force facilities and military family housing within the KMC used more than 450 million gallons of water, which cost more than $5 million. Every member of the KMC has a part to play in water conservation. Water saving initiatives positively impact our ecological relationship with water sources and result in a significant reduction of utility bills. An active concern to save water will reduce consumption without sacrificing cleanliness or interfering with lifestyles.

Did you know?

• Over the course of a year, a water faucet left running while shaving, brushing your teeth and while washing your hands wastes about 32 gallons of water. • A continuous shower requires up to 12 gallons per minute, and a full bathtub uses 36 gallons. Wetting down, soaping up and rinsing off rapidly uses only four gallons. • Automatic dishwashers use up to 16 gallons of water; washing dishes by hand in a sink or dishpan requires only five gallons.

Make a change!

• Buy water-saving devices such as water efficient faucets and shower heads. Water efficient shower heads can save up to 750 gallons a month. • Take shorter showers. Run water only for wetting down and rinsing. Put a bucket in the shower

and collect water while it is warming for use on potted plants. • Turn off the water when shaving, brushing teeth or soaping hands. • Run only full loads in the washing machine; this can save up to 600 gallons a month. • Wash dishes by hand in a sink or a dishpan. Run only full loads in the dishwasher, and minimize rinsing beforehand. • Thaw frozen foods in the refrigerator rather than a sink full of water. Wash your produce in the sink or a pan that is filled with water instead of running water from the tap. • Listen for dripping faucets and toilets. Stopping a leak can save 500 gallons a month. • Don’t use the toilet as a trashcan. Toss your facial tissues in the bin. • In summer months, water the lawn only in the morning and evening hours, limit duration based on expected temperatures, and if rain is forecasted, don’t water. By empowering change at work, home and everywhere in between, the results will be real and measurable. Know your facility manager, and contact them if you notice leaks.

Capt. Spanky: Stay safe this Halloween Hello, Team Ramstein! Halloween is just around the corner, and I’m so excited my little nub won’t stop wagging! I can’t wait to dress up in matching costumes with my humans and visit the children at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center. Maybe we will get to pass out candy and other treats to the children, too! Speaking of handing out candy and treats, next week on Halloween there are several events going on around the KMC I hope you all get the chance to enjoy. The Trunk-or-Treat event is scheduled to take place from 5 to 7 p.m. at Donnelly Park. There will even be carnival games and food, so it should be fun for the whole pack. At the same time, the Ramstein and Vogelweh military family housing areas will be hosting trick-or-treat; I hope there aren’t any tricks and a lot of treats. Yum! Whatever you decide to do, be safe out there. Here are a few tips on staying safe next week.

Children 11 years old and under are not allowed to go trick-ortreating alone. Also, it is getting darker earlier so be sure to wear reflective material, use flashlights, and use sidewalks and crosswalks whenever possible. To help you all remain safe, my friends at the 86th Security Forces Squadron and 569th U.S. Forces Police Squadron and their humans have partnered up with base volunteers to deliver the Pumpkin Patrol. More details on the Pumpkin Patrol will be provided in next week’s Kaiserslautern American, so you can have it more readily available. In short, they will provide safety patrols, traffic control and man missing or lost child stations during the events. Aren’t we lucky to have such great K-9s, men and women dedicated to ensure we stay safe? Have fun, but remember that the safety of you and your family is always a key concern of base leadership and of Capt. Spanky as well! Happy haunting!

As winter approaches, days shorten and temperatures begin to drop. Service members commuting to work may experience hazardous road conditions brought on by reduced lighting and freezing temperatures. To help mitigate the increased safety risks, motorists should properly prepare their vehicle for winter driving conditions. The team at the 86th Vehicle Readiness Squadron would like to pass on the following tips: • Don’t warm up your car in a closed garage or enclosed space. • After it snows, remove snow from your vehicle before driving. Also, don’t forget to clear the snow from any lights and mirrors, as well as the windshields. • Ensure you have a working rear defroster. If you have an older vehicle with an inoperative rear defroster, have it repaired. • Ensure your tires are properly inflated. Tire pressure drops with temperature, so if the last time you checked your tire pressure was during the summer months, your tires may be dangerously low. This could affect your car’s handling. • Ensure you have a serviceable, properly inflated spare tire and that you have the proper tire changing equipment (lug wrench and jack) in your vehicle. Most cars come with a spare tire in the trunk, when was the last time you checked it? • Ensure your wipers are operational and in good condition. During winter months, you’ll likely use your wipers more frequently to clear the windshield. Worn out wipers don’t perform well while driving in snow, further compromising your already reduced visibility. • Ensure your windshield wiper reservoir is full. During snowy and icy conditions, you’ll use more washer fluid. It’s important to use a good de-icer washer fluid that is engineered to work at below-freezing conditions to melt the frost or light ice that builds up. • Dress for winter. When making a quick trip to the store, you may not feel the need to grab a heavy winter coat or a pair of gloves. You’re probably thinking, “I’ll be inside my car with the heated seats. I’ll only have to bear the cold walking from the parking lot to the store front.” However, if you were to get into an accident or become stuck on the side of the road for any reason, the coat and gloves will be instrumental in keeping you warm. • Have basic supplies in your car. Ice scrapers and snow brushes are a must, but also consider an extra jacket, pair of gloves, winter hat, blanket, flash light and the mandatory first aid kit. A bag of kitty litter or sand may also come in handy if you find yourself stuck; pour a little in the path to help your tires gain traction. • Have a cell phone handy. Never leave

home without it, but also take the time to program it with any numbers you anticipate needing in an emergency. • Check the weather before making long trips. If the weather report predicts poor conditions, consider delaying your trip or taking an alternate route. • Slow down. Even with anti-lock brakes, stability control, snow tires and all-wheel drive your car will still not handle and grip the road as well as in dry conditions. Accelerate slower, brake slower, turn slower and leave more distance between you and the other cars on the road. Remember it will take longer to stop in slippery conditions. • Don’t use cruise control. When driving in snow or wet conditions, this could delay the time it takes for you to brake in an emergency. • Be careful when crossing bridges. Bridges and overpasses freeze first, so be prepared to encounter icy patches when crossing exposed roadways. • After a snowfall, consider staying off the road until it’s cleared. If you live on base, the priority will be the airfield, so it may be a while before the housing areas and secondary streets are cleared of snow. Consider walking to work if feasible. • Ensure you have snow or all-season tires. German law requires vehicles have winter tires when driving under icy conditions. A winter tire is specifically one with a mud and snow (M+S) label or the three peaks/snow flake symbol. The law does not set a time limit, but does state “under icy conditions.” Since it’s difficult to predict the weather, it’s a good rule of thumb to put winter tires on your vehicle around October and leave them on until at least Easter. Winter tires should have a tread depth of at least three millimeters. • German law requires passenger cars to be equipped with snow tires or chains in certain mountainous areas. These areas are marked with traffic signs. At some mountain passes, chains may be rented. The maximum speed while driving a vehicle with chains is 50 kph (31 mph). • Snow tires with spikes or studs are not allowed in Germany. If only two snow tires are used, they must be mounted on the drive wheels. Four-wheel-drive vehicles must have the snow tires mounted on the rear wheels. Radial snow tires may only be used with regular radial tires. Bias-ply snow tires may only be used with regular bias-ply tires. Take the time now to prepare for the colder months ahead. Germany has a beautiful winter landscape. If you plan on traveling in the upcoming months, plan your route of travel, and make sure to take inclement weather and road conditions into consideration.

Defenders shoot, move, communicate through training Story and photos by Airman 1st Class Michael Stuart 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs If an unfortunate event occurs on base, such as an active shooter, there needs to be some sort of protection for the public. The 86th Security Forces Squadron is that line of defense on Ramstein. The 86th SFS is responsible for protecting the people, resources and property on Ramstein 24 hours a day, seven days a week. “As a defender, you’re ultimately going to be base security whether you’re working as an entry controller at the gates, working flightline security or even patrolling,” said Tech. Sgt. Jacob See, 86th SFS instructor. “Security and law and order are our baseline.” In order to be an effective unit, security forces conducts training a few times a month to keep their skills sharp. “Shoot, Move, Communicate” training is one of the training sessions that equip defenders with the skills and know-how of what to do in a high-risk scenario. “This is training where defenders learn to shoot, move and communicate in combat situations,” said Staff Sgt. Jeffery Fitzgerald, 86th SFS instructor. “The skills learned are a great foundation for defenders all across the Air Force.” During the training, defenders learned different ways to handle a weapon, as well as the correct form RAMSTEIN

for facing movements when their weapon is drawn. Two-man teams moved while simulating engaging an armed enemy. The defenders yelled different strategic terms so they could be on track with their counterparts during the fast paced, but systematic training. “There’s going to be chaos in every situation, but we can minimize that chaos by not having communication failures with one another,” Fitzgerald said.

Students learn coding through educational video game by Senior Airman Timothy Moore 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


tudents from Kaiserslautern Middle School, Vogelweh Elementary School and Landstuhl Elementary/ Middle School had the opportunity to learn computer coding through MinecraftEdu Oct. 16 and 17. The opportunity was made available as part of the MinecraftEdu creator’s European tour to raise awareness of social challenges schools are facing globally. “The focus of the tour is to give back to the MinecraftEdu community, help teachers, and raise awareness and excitement for computer programming in students,” said Santeri Koivisto, MinecraftEdu chief executive officer and co-founder, in a pre-released statement. MinecraftEdu is a school-ready remix of the Minecraft game, which allows players to build constructions out of textured cubes in a threedimensional world. It was created by teachers for the classroom using a set of powerful, yet simple tools to fine tune the experience for learning. Xavier Flores, VES fourth grade teacher, has been using the educational version of the game in his class for the past six months, integrating the software into his lesson plans. “When they tweeted for volunteers to host the tours, I immediately replied volunteering our school,” Flores said. “I never imagined they would actually come to visit.” In order to help the students better understand the directions laid out in their programming scripts, the mem-

bers of TeacherGaming also walked students through a physical grid placed on the ground. Afterward, students moved to the second part of the workshop, which was centered on game design.

“It excites students because of the ease and simplicity of the game,” Flores said. “The students are way better at the game than I am.

Fury April, 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European theater, a battle-hardened Army sergeant named Wardaddy commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered and outgunned, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.

into a new home in Brooklyn with her 12-year old son, Oliver. Forced to work long hours, she has no choice but to leave Oliver in the care of their new neighbor, Vincent, a retired curmudgeon with a penchant for alcohol and gambling. An odd friendship soon blossoms between the improbable pair. Together with a pregnant stripper named Daka, Vincent brings Oliver along on all the stops that make up his daily routine — the race track, a strip club and the local dive bar. Vincent helps Oliver grow to become a man, while Oliver begins to see in Vincent something that no one else is able to: a misunderstood man with a good heart.

When he comes out of his self-imposed retirement to rescue a young girl, Teri, he finds himself face to face with ultraviolent Russian gangsters. As he serves vengeance against those who brutalize the helpless, McCall’s desire for justice is reawakened. If someone has a problem, the odds are stacked against them, and they have nowhere else to turn, McCall will help. He is The Equalizer. Starring Denzel Washington and Chloe Moretz

according to the instructions, and allow to cool slightly. Dip the bananas into the white chocolate and then set them on the wax paper to harden. While the chocolate sets, use the mini chocolate chips to make ghost “eyes.” Freeze your pops until ready to eat.

and allow mixture to cool a bit. Form the treats into medium-sized pumpkins. Press a tootsie roll into the top to act as the stem. Add candy for decorations, and enjoy!

12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with marinara dipping sauce.

What You Need: All you need for this craft are some bananas, popsicle sticks, white chocolate, wax paper, and mini chocolate chips. What To Do: Cut each of your bananas in half and insert a popsicle stick in the base. Place them in the freezer for 30 seconds to harden. Melt the white chocolate

What You Need: 6 cups of puffed rice cereal, 3 tablespoons of butter, ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract, 5 ½ cups of mini marshmallows, orange food coloring, mini tootsie rolls, and your favorite candy for decorations.
