Airmen work hand-in-hand with Polish counterparts Story and photo by Senior Airman Hailey Haux 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs POWIDZ AIR TRANSPORT BASE, Poland — Ramstein Airmen were involved with members of the Polish air force Oct. 14 through today during the fiscal year’s first rotation of aircraft to the U.S. Air Force Aviation Detachment in Poland. U.S. and Polish air force members trained and learned from each other on several airlift functions, including flight controls and aircraft maintenance. As part of the continued partnership, this is the second time this year Airmen from the 37th Airlift Squadron trained with the Polish air force. “It’s great being able to work with our Polish counterparts because they deal with some of the same issues we do,” said Capt. Scott Vander Ploeg, 37th Airlift Squadron Av-Det Rotation See PARTNERSHIP, Page 7

reparing more than 1,000 security forces members for deployments every year falls on the shoulders of less than 20 cadre from the 435th Air Ground Operations Wing operating out of Baumholder, Germany. The cadre are there to guide security forces Airmen to reach their optimal capabilities. Senior Airman Jesse Koritar, 435th Security Forces Squadron combat tactics technician, ensures all security forces members passing through his class are capable of performing 24 core security forces tasks, ranging from nighttime operations, fire control measures and urban operations. “This is the type of training environment where

mistakes are allowed and improved upon,” Koritar said. “We aim to mold everyone into a squad leader so safety will never be an issue.” Cadre use class members to shape even the lowest ranking Airman into a leader. Koritar instills student-driven lessons inside his teaching structure. “We always aim to leave an impact,” Koritar said. “There is already years of experience and multiple deployments completed within every squad arriving here. Cadre facilitate and guide the learning and refreshing process. The knowledge to complete the mission is already instilled in every defender that passes through; we just reaffirm and consolidate what they already know.” Confidence built within each other and within a squad is paramount to the Creek Defender course.

Halloween core values


by Col. Ray Briggs 86th Maintenance Group commander

It was three nights before Halloween, and Staff Sgt. Randy Brown was sleeping. He was dreaming of his upcoming trip to Frankfurt airport with his fiancee, Susan, from the 86th Force Support Squadron. They were about to fly to the U.S. to get married. In his dream, a traffic jam had forced them off of the autobahn and onto a lonely stretch of highway near Frankenstein Castle outside of Darmstadt. The locals know strange things still happen around the woods near Frankenstein Castle. Locals tell a 150-year-old story about a mad woodsman who used his ax to do unspeakable things. The ghost of the mad woodsman is said to still haunt the woods near Frankenstein Castle today. It was raining and already dark, but Randy was only thinking of Susan and getting to the airport. Susan was uncomfortable with Randy’s driving on the winding road in the rain. She asked where they were. Sensing her unease, Randy decided it would be better to not tell her about Frankenstein Castle and the local legend of the area, so he made up a story about a fairytale from outside Darmstadt. He slowed as he passed a disabled vehicle, pretending to see if they needed assistance; he had no real intention of stopping as all he could think of was getting to the airport. Randy was now concentrating on the GPS as it recalculated for the um-teenth time, hoping it would get them rerouted back to the autobahn and on the way to Frankfurt. As he looked up, he saw a shadowy figure with an ax standing in the middle of the road. He swerved, losing control of the vehicle and slid down an embankment. The

car was not damaged and no one was hurt, but it was stuck in the mud. Randy and Susan looked up to see the shadowy, ax-wielding figure standing in front of them. As the ax came thundering down into the car, Randy awoke with a fright. He couldn’t help but think, “If only I had practiced integrity first and told the truth about where we were, this would not have happened.” The next night, Randy was again dreaming of his drive to the Frankfurt airport. Just as before, it was raining, dark and traffic had pushed them off of the autobahn onto the back roads near Frankenstein Castle. As the GPS recalculated, Susan asked about where they were in her uneasy manner. This time, Randy knew he should tell her the truth. He told her about Frankenstein Castle and the legend of the mad woodsman. It didn’t make Susan feel any better, but he knew he had told the truth. He slowed as he passed the disabled vehicle, but continued on, just as he had done the night before. Randy focused on the GPS, only to look up to see a shadowy figure with an ax standing in the middle of the road. He swerved, lost control of the vehicle and slid down the embankment. The car was undamaged and there were no injuries, but they were stuck. Randy and Susan looked up to see the ax-wielding ghost standing in front of them. As his ax came crashing down onto the car, Randy was startled awake. He couldn’t help but think, “If only I had practiced service before self and assisted the disabled vehicle, this would not have happened.” The third night, Randy was again dreaming of his drive to the Frankfurt airport.

had pushed them off of the autobahn onto the back roads near Frankenstein Castle. The GPS continued to recalculate, and Susan asked the uneasy question about where they were. Again, Randy told the truth about the castle and the legend of the mad woodsman. As they approached a disabled vehicle, he stopped and rendered assistance. He helped the stranded driver place his warning triangle 100 meters from the vehicle and changed a flat tire. Randy wasn’t prepared for the evening’s rain and ended up soaking wet and cold, even though it only took 15 minutes to help the stranger. They should still be able to make it to the airport on time, if they could find their way back to the autobahn. After getting back to his car, Randy was shivering from the cold and dripping wet. Shaking water from his brow, he looked up to see a shadowy figure with an ax standing in the middle of the road. The car swerved and slid down

an embankment, undamaged and without injuries, but stuck in the mud. Driver and passenger looked up to see the shadowy, ax-wielding figure standing in front of the car. Again, the ax came crashing down onto the car, and Randy suddenly awoke with a cold sweat. He couldn’t help but think, “If only I had practiced excellence and been prepared for the conditions of the evening, this would not have happened.” It was time for the Randy and Susan’s drive to the Frankfurt airport, and this was no dream. Just like his dreams the previous three nights, it was raining, dark and traffic had pushed them off of the autobahn onto the back roads near Frankenstein Castle. The GPS continued to recalculate, but Susan was following on the map they had prepared in advance. See VALUES, Page 8

Soldiers at Vogelweh remember fallen CID special agent Story and photos by Rick Scavetta U.S. Army Garrison Rheinland-Pfalz


unshine and somber music filled Vogelweh’s chapel as Army law enforcement Soldiers honored the memory of Sgt. Joseph Peters — the first special agent from the Army’s Criminal Investigation Command, known as CID — to die in combat since the command was established in 1971. Peters, 24, of Springfield, Mo., was killed Oct. 6 by enemy explosives in Zhari District, near Kandahar, Afghanistan. “The thin blue line is truly thinner today,” said Sgt. Justin Link, using a colloquial term for police forces known well to the gathering of mostly military police Soldiers. Peters enlisted in 2007, working in Army intelligence. He deployed to Iraq in 2008 and 2009. Promoted to sergeant in 2010, Peters became a CID special agent and was posted to the 286th Military Police Detachment in Vicenza, Italy — a closeknit team of 12 Soldiers and Italian employees. At Caserma Ederle, Peters investigated 60 felony-level cases. He was a diligent and determined agent who liked to break the seriousness of police work with good humor, said Chief Warrant Officer 2 Chris Kellenberger. “He worked hard,” Kellenberger said. “He was fun to be around. He liked to have a good time and loved what he was doing. He’d be serious when he needed to to

get his job done.” In April 2013, he deployed to Afghanistan in support of U.S. Special Operations Command. Part of an elite team, Peters took part in classified missions in remote areas. At the service, Peters’ wife Ashley and their son Gabriel sat in the first pews with Peters’ parents, Dennis and Debbie. The family traveled from Missouri to take part in the memorial. Soldiers quietly reflected as Pfc. Anthony Oliveira, from the Wiesbaden CID unit, played a spiritual song on his guitar. Outside, Soldiers from the 18th Military Police Brigade fired volleys followed by a bugler sounding taps. Although casualties among CID Soldiers are rare, the dangers they face each day — either in garrison or deployed to combat zones — are not, said Lt. Col. Sarah K. Albrycht, commander of the 5th MP Battalion. “The loss of agent Peters was a shock,” Albrycht said. “It hurts so much to lose one of your own.” Peters was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star with valor, the Purple Heart, the Meritorious Service Medal, the Afghanistan Campaign Medal, the NATO Medal and the Combat Action Badge. The U.S. Army Europe command team, Lt. Gen. Donald M. Campbell Jr. and Command Sgt. Maj. David S. Davenport Sr., attended the service, as did several senior Army and Air Force leaders from the KMC. After a chaplain’s prayer, Peters’ coworkers and friends spoke about their fallen comrade.

Chief Warrant Officer 2 Chris Kellenberger, Sgt. Joseph Peters’ supervisor, gives the eulogy during a memorial for Peters, the first special agent from the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command to die in combat since the command formed in 1971.

For a few days, the office was in disbelief, Kellenberger said. “Since then, we’ve accepted it. It’s the nature of what we volunteered to do,” Kellenberger said. “With that acceptance, we’ve become a little more lighthearted. We tell stories about Joe.” Peters was both mentor and friend to Link, 26, of North

Brunswick, N.J., who arrived in Vicenza a year after Peters. As CID agents, they investigated felony crimes from assaults to drugs and larcenies. “We started working cases together. He was my partner,” Link said. “He was a ‘bro’ at heart. He was the guy who, when we’re getting ready to go home, would

ask, ‘Who wants to go get a beer?’” Close in age and younger than their colleagues, the agents found solace at the Arena, Caserma Ederle’s onpost watering hole, talking over Hefeweizen beers — a way to leave the day’s stressors behind. See HONOR, Page 11

CMXS: mission possible by Senior Airman Whitney Stork 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

Staff Sgt. Horacio Maysonet, 1st Communications Maintenance Squadron special communications engineer, inspects a training module Oct. 17 on Ramstein.

he 1st Communications Maintenance Squadron spends the majority of the year on the road doing what some would call the impossible. While traditional maintenance squadrons are fixing everyday outages, these Airmen are called upon when it seems no one has the answer. The squadron provides specialized Air Force maintenance support for Department of Defense computer and infor-

mation systems within the U.S. European Command area. They also present theater commanders with emergency restoration, preventative maintenance, training expertise and maintenance support exceeding base-level capabilities. These Airmen receive extensive training and received certifications that exceed what base-level personnel require. “We have a unique mission here, and we’re diverse with a good range of knowledge between all of the sections and personnel,” said Master Sgt. Chet Fine, 1st CMXS operations

flight chief. “We work as the 9-1-1 of the comm maintenance world. As soon as we get a call for support, we are usually on the road within 48 hours.” The three sections that make up the squadron are operations, plans and programs and the regional maintenance center. Each section holds their own specialist on maintenance aspects from cables and vehicles to airfield weather equipment. They are completely self-reliant within themselves to be able to See CMXS, Page 18

Showcasing base pride with mass cleaning Airman John Crover, 86th Civil Engineer Squadron operations manager, gathers leaves during a base clean up Monday on Ramstein. The first of the two clean-up days directed the KMC to tidy up the interiors and exteriors of base facilities. The second day was focused on base housing areas. During the base clean up, KMC personnel picked up trash around their surrounding areas and gathered leaves and debris.

Soldiers from the 21st Theater Sustainment Command’s 21st Special Troops Battalion conducted land navigation training Oct. 15 to 17 to prepare for the Warrior Leader Course in the KMC. Training began on Panzer Kaserne with classroom instruction covering every aspect of land navigation. Soldiers learned about terrain features, including hills, valleys, ridges, saddles and draws, and how to read the legend on a map. They also received instruction on how to orient a map and determine its scale, said Sgt. 1st Class Jose Garnica, an operations NCO assigned to the 21st STB and the course instructor. “Land navigation is something a lot of these Soldiers don’t use in their day-to-day mission, but it is something all Soldiers need to keep close to their heart,” Garnica said. “In a time when people rely so heavily on technology, it’s important to know how to use a map in case those electronic systems fail.” The class continued with instruction on reading an eight-digit grid coordinate and plotting it on a map. After plotting multiple points, the students learned to determine an azimuth and distance between two points. Finally, Garnica taught them the basics of terrain association and how to identify the location of terrain features in relation to a plotted point. “Plotting points, determining the azimuth, determining distance and

Spc. Billy L. Phillips, a human resources specialist assigned to the 21st Theater Sustainment Command’s 1st Human Resources Sustainment Command, checks his azimuth during land navigation training.

terrain association will help these Soldiers find their points quicker,” Garnica said. “When they go to the Warrior Leader Course they will go into it with a better understanding of multiple ways to find their points.” On the third day of training, the Soldiers put everything they learned into practice with LANDNAV lanes on Rhine Ordnance Barracks. The “Always Ready” Soldiers received starting grid coordinates, a map, a compass, a protractor and four points to find. During the first iteration the Soldiers operated in buddy teams, during a second iteration they had to navigate alone, said Spc. Billy L. Phillips, a human resources specialist assigned to the 21st TSC’s 1st Human Resources Sustainment Command. “At first getting through the terrain in the woods was difficult, but as we became more comfortable with what we were doing it got easier to find our points,” Phillips said. “I think this training is going to help all of us when we get to WLC. Having this knowledge and experience will lead us to success.”

14-1 mission commander. “It is nice to be able to help each other out with those issues.” The events that took place were personnel drops, as well as Joint Precision Air Delivery System and Container Delivery System bundle drops. Additionally, air force members teamed for grass-strip landings, low-level routes and observation flights. “The Polish forces put together their own bundles for us to drop,” said Capt. Ben Spain, 37th AS instructor pilot. “This is the first time we have ever done that. It will be good to be able to work together in a different way.” As long-time allies, the U.S. and Poland continue to build partnership capacity together at the Av-Det, and missions like this help to strengthen that important alliance. “By working with our counterparts, we are able to increase the capabilities of ourselves and our allies around us,” Vander Ploeg said. “It’s important to do because if we go to war together we already know how things will work.”

he basics, check. The training, check. Now, on to professionalism. From the intensity of basic military training to the countless hours of sitting in class gaining career knowledge, the time finally comes to use those skills and become military professionals. This is the path all Air Force members must take in their first month as the new faces of the Air Force. First-Term Airman Center instructors are responsible for taking new Airmen and shaping them into contributing members of the Air Force. They provide key information needed to prosper as Airmen begin their Air Force career. “We provide them with the information they’re going to use for the rest of their career,” said Staff Sgt. Robert Hockenhull, 86th Force Support Squadron FTAC instructor. “Every briefing is important and they will need this information at some point in their career.” Along with teaching the basics of being an Airman during the eight-day course, the instructors assist by helping them with wingmenship. “It’s about molding them into Airmen and helping them become great people,” Hockenhull said. “We’ve built an environment

Share yoeusr! adventur

that allows them to become closer with their fellow wingmen and come out of their shells in our group activities.” FTAC instructors haven’t always had the job of training Airmen. The instructors teaching the courses are from many different career fields and use their different experiences to provide a variety of knowledge to the Airmen. “I have worked with nearly every career field in the Air Force,” said Staff Sgt. James Gettis, 86th Force Support Squadron FTAC instructor. “Because instructors come from different jobs, we can answer a lot of questions the Airmen have about what the operational Air Force is like.” Gettis said the transition from trainee to professional is the best time to teach new Air Force ambassadors important aspects they need to know. “This is the most crucial part,” Gettis said. “The transition can be rough, but they made a great decision in their life. Wearing the uniform is a matter of pride and dedication to something greater than themselves … they can go to bed at the end of the night saying they are professional and they have to learn to present themselves as such.” FTAC instructors provide leadership skills from the front as well as followership skills needed to be successful in their Air Force career. With their new found Air Force knowledge Airmen have the tools they need to perform their job and be a functional member of the Air Force.

The bystander effect by Senior Airman Trevor Rhynes 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


magine yourself walking down the street, minding your own business, on your way home from a long day at work. It’s getting dark and someone in your peripheral vision stumbles down some stairs they didn’t see. The sidewalk and the street nearby is full of traffic. There’s plenty of other people to help out, right? Someone else will stop to see if that person is OK, right? A person stumbling on two or three stairs isn’t that serious of a situation, but having the mentality that someone else nearby will help could lead to that person not getting help in a dire moment. “The bystander mentality can be avoided by just taking the risk and stepping in,” said Tech. Sgt. Lenny Mejia, 693rd Intelligence Support Squadron cyber systems operations technician. “Don’t worry about the feelings of discomfort or embarrassment and just do it.” Mejia was one of several individuals who came to someone’s aid when they were riding a bicycle near the Belgian Support Unit and fell. “I noticed a cyclist who was about to traverse the steps of a walking path that’s across the parking lot of the Belgian bar,” Mejia said. “I saw the cyclist

was about to experience a bad fall and then saw he was no longer on the walking path. I quickly turned the vehicle around and saw if I could help.” Two others who were driving also stopped to give aid. The women stayed with the bicyclist while Mejia ran to call an ambulance. “He had two big road rashes with bleeding at the top left of his forehead and cheek,” Mejia said. “If not for his helmet the injuries sustained would have been immediately life threatening. His fall was hard enough that his front tire was bent and elliptical in shape.” “The ambulance arrived in a few minutes,” said Airman 1st Class Ryan Dulude, 24th Intelligence Squadron signals analyst. “I saw the accident while walking home from work and came over to see what I could do. The medical personnel had me help move the individual into the ambulance.” Without the individuals who stopped to help, the cyclist might have been left to get help on his own, Mejia said. “It’s important to stop and offer help if you see something happen,” Dulude said. “People should take the time and assist if they’re needed. What would you do if you were hurt but no one stopped to help you?” The cyclist was treated by medical technicians and released from care shortly after arriving at the hospital.

She joked about the GPS’s inability to keep up with her. She knew they were traveling near Frankenstein Castle and asked Randy what he knew about the area. Randy told her about the legend of the mad woodsman. As they approached a disabled vehicle, they rendered assistance. He donned his rain gear and gloves, pulling a poncho hat over his head. He helped the stranded driver place his warning triangle and changed a flat tire. It only took 15 minutes, and because he had planned for extra time on his drive, they still had plenty of time to make it to the airport. After getting back to his car, Susan said how impressed she was with Randy. He was prepared for the drive, had an alternate plan to deal with traffic and was a good citizen by helping the stranded driver. The two drove on, staying alert, minding their speed, and working as a team. They passed a shadowy figure who appeared to be holding an ax, which made Susan gasp. As Randy stayed focused on the road, they drove by the figure and realized that it was just a scarecrow decoration put out for Halloween. The bend on the road and unusual lighting made it appear to be in the road. As they returned to the autobahn and continued to Frankfurt airport, both Randy and Susan knew the importance of living the core values of integrity, service and excellence. They had no doubt that it was going to be great wedding.

New granulator machine puts money back into Army’s pocket Story and photo by Staff Sgt. Warren W. Wright Jr. 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs


mid intense budgetary concerns and with units across the Department of Defense striving to save money, one organization has found a way to bring money back into the Army by selling something most Soldiers see as garbage after a day at the range. The Ammunition Center Europe, a subordinate organization to the Theater Logistics Support CenterEurope, has recently acquired a brass granulator machine with the ability to break used and empty brass ammunition cartridges into tiny flakes, which can then be sold for a profit. “We now have the ability to granulate the brass here and then we can sell it to local contractors,” said Juan C. Gomez, chief of ACE’s material management division. “Sixty percent of the proceeds that we make out of the sale will go to the Army and 40 percent of the proceeds we can request for improvement of our facilities and installation.” Current estimates show that the machine has the ability to shred enough brass to earn between $370,000 and $400,000 each quarter

for the foreseeable future. “It’s important because we’re saving the government money by granulating our own brass,” said Darren Williams, a munitions handler with ACE. “It’s more like a recycling program within the organization.” Prior to receiving the granulator machine, ACE stored used brass at the Miesau Army Depot. During that 10-year period, the organization has accumulated more than 1,800 short tons of spent brass, ranging from .50 caliber rounds all the way down to 5.56 mm rounds. Back then, “the normal process was to collect the brass and turn it into the Defense Logistics Agency, however, we were encountering too many problems,” Gomez said. “When we turned the items into the DLA, they would screen it, and as soon as they found a live round they would return everything back to us.” The process of constantly shipping large quantities of brass back and forth between locations because of one or two live rounds in the bin became too tedious and expensive to maintain, so ACE decided to use some of the empty munitions bunkers at the depot to store the rounds. “That was creating a big problem for us because we had to transport it over there, then we had to go back

and transport it here, rescreen it and transport it back to them,” Gomez said. “The machine was not available to us 10 years ago, and now that it is available, we can deal with our own brass.” Currently, the operation is in a pilot stage, testing the capabilities of the machine and making sure everything works correctly. The project is slated to become fully operational Monday. “When we become fully operation-

al we expect to be able to granulate up to 1,000 rounds per hour and we will be working on a daily basis,” Williams said. “The process is going very well because during the pilot stage we have moved past a lot of barriers. “It feels good to be out here doing this job,” Williams added. “We’re in the process of bringing money back into our organization and to our community — we’re making money instead of spending money.”

Watch for vampires in your home


hey’re called vampire electronics. They suck energy even when turned off and can drive up the energy bills of unwary consumers. Although this eerie-sounding term can result in chilling home energy bills, the solution is not as scary. To keep energy bills down and consumption in check, the key is to identify the electronic culprits and drive a stake through their power-hungry hearts. Counted among the legions of vampire electronics in most homes are portable music players, mobile phones and televisions. Even microwaves, stoves and washing machines can take on vampire-like qualities. Small appliances and electronic devices, such as clocks, remote controls and battery chargers, continue zapping energy when not in use. Many vampire electronics lurk in the average home, making the potential for energy waste shocking. For instance, a sleek plasma television moni-

tor can suck up to 1,450 kilowatt hours of energy annually, which translates into approximately $320 per year using local electrical rates. A video game console consumes about 230 kilowatt hours annually while in active standby mode, ringing up a bill of about $50 a year. Even the average home computer uses a whopping 310 kWh annually when in standby mode, costing about $70 a year. Halloween is a great time for the KMC to exorcise these electrical demons from their homes. It is the small things, such as leaving the cell phone charger plugged in or power tools in their chargers that use constant energy. Over time, a great deal of power is consumed. As people prepare to winterize their homes, they should also devise a strategy to minimize the amount of energy their homes use, even when they’re not around or sleeping. Here are some suggestions: •  When  finished  charging  devices  such  as  a  mobile phone or tablet, disconnect the device and

unplug the charger. Even if the device isn’t connected, energy continues to seep out through the charger itself. •  Unplug all major appliances when heading out  on vacation. Even when devices such as the microwave, stove and washing machine aren’t in use, they continue to gobble energy. •  Turn  all  computers  monitors  and  printers  off.  Though this equipment may automatically convert to sleep mode, it keeps draining energy. •  Rather than leaving a light on to deter burglars,  install a timer. This way, lights are on for only a short period rather than all day. •  Purchase  a  power  strip  that  can  turn  several  appliances off at the same time so plugging-in and un-plugging is easier and more convenient. Taking simple steps like these, can make a big difference when it comes to monthly energy bills. Armed with the knowledge of vampire electronics, residents can slay them before their wallet is sucked dry. (Courtesy of 86th Civil Engineer Squadron)

Energy conservation: One person can make a change by Maj. Bill Triche 86th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron commander As autumn prepares us for our winter slumber, there are many events that come with the season: village farmers markets, wine tasting and winter stews and soups, all of which warm our bones. We plan our Halloween parties and fall feasts to invite folks over for fun and fellowship. But, do you celebrate October as Energy Conservation Month? I know.

Break open the noise-makers. We are going to have a good time now. But consider the impact one person can have on the energy consumed daily, then multiply that by 365 days, then add one more person, and so on. I don’t want you to do the math, but I do challenge you to change a few personal habits that can have an energy savings impact.

until rinse (yea, this is an easy one)? How many of us leave the water running by habit? This is energy down the drain. •  How  about  this  one:  When showering, do you turn the water off between wetdown, soaping and rinsing?

Yep,

even when these components are not charging or operating your appliances, they are still using energy and you are getting nothing from it. •  Get  a  quick  car  check.  To save gas, drive the speed limit, accelerate and decelerate slower, remove excess/ unneeded weight, reduce unnecessary idling and miles traveled, and make sure tires are  properly  inflated.  Having  a serviceable vehicle and operating it conservatively can save gas and money. •  Carpool, bike or use mass  transit when commuting to work. This one takes a little planning and maybe some warmer clothes. Or, plan a carpool that offers conversation or a few extra minutes of sleep when it’s not your turn to drive.

A heavy metal music fan and budding guitarist, Peters was known for his energy. In Italy, they visited castles and nearby Soave. Another memorable trip was to the Edelweiss Lodge and Resort in GarmischPartenkirchen, Germany. “He loved to get out. He didn’t like sitting at home. He always wanted to do something,” Link said. “He had a lot of energy. That rubbed off on everybody in the office.” When Peters deployed, Link missed hanging out with his buddy. The office was much quieter. That Sunday, Oct. 6, Link was catching up on “Breaking Bad” episodes when Peters’ wife, Ashley, sent him a message from the states saying his friend was dead. He sat for a couple of minutes just shaking his head. “I was expecting it to just be a mistake, to find out a couple hours later that it was the wrong Joe Peters or (they) mixed his Social Security number up or something,” Link said. “I just couldn’t believe it.” Link called Staff Sgt. Brian Mason, who was at home looking for his keys and getting ready for supper with his girlfriend. “I got some news for you (about

Kaiserslautern American Joe),” Mason recalled Link saying. “Joe (died).” Mason, 31, of Carlsbad, N.M., tried to keep his composure, but the tears came quickly. “It was devastating. I was in disbelief,” Mason said. “It was a very somber moment for me.” Peters was two weeks shy of coming home, Link said. While on assignment in Germany, Link found a case of Samuel Adams Octoberfest beer, to celebrate once Peters returned. The case was never opened. Peters’ friends plan to drink it and celebrate his memory, Link said. Shortly before his death, Peters mailed a flag he’d carried on a mission to Mason. But Mason, who also served in Afghanistan, wanted to wait until Peters returned to Vicenza to open it — a decision he said he now regrets. “I was looking forward to him coming back,” Mason said. A week after Peters’ death, Mason looked inside. Along with the flag was a hand-scrawled note filled with Peters’ comical sense of humor, Mason said, both smiling and tearful as he recalled his friend’s gesture. “I waited to open it,” Mason said. “I never got a chance to say, ‘Thank you.’”

Using the squad to teach and better itself pushes each group of defenders to believe in themselves no matter what they might face. “Trust is the most important aspect we emphasize here,” Koritar said. “Once the trust is built in each squad, guiding them to be where they need to reach is simple. It’s how we operate here to complete our mission and secure a safe area of operation while deployed.” Building toward a safe deployed

location is why cadres like Koritar strive for perfecting any flaws while teaching. Bringing home every last service member safely is their goal. “There are a lot of stressful situations anyone can face while deployed,” said Airman 1st Class Marcel Baca, 100th Security Forces Squadron Creek Defender student. “I feel much more confident in my ability to tackle these situations after going through this program. Cadre, like Koritar, really pushed us to find the answer we needed by looking inside ourselves.”

Drug Take-Back Day by Capt. Richard Smith 86th Medical Support Squadron


he 86th Medical Group pharmacy will participate in the National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Kaiserslautern Military Community Center food court. The event provides the public with an opportunity to prevent medication abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescriptions. For those who are unable to participate during this time, the 86th MDG pharmacy offers daily disposal of prescriptions through their permanent take-back drop box located in the lobby of the pharmacy. All Army pharmacy facilities in Europe take discontinued, unwanted or expired prescription medications for disposal during regular pharmacy business hours. These services are free and anonymous, no questions asked. The Drug Enforcement Administration conducts two National

Prescription Drug Take-Back Days per year. In April, Americans turned in 742,497 pounds (371 tons) of prescription drugs at more than 5,829 locations. This is the seventh time the 86th MDG has participated in the National Drug Take-Back initiative. This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, 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, patients are now advised that their usual methods for disposal of unused medicines — flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash — both pose potential safety and health hazards. This event ensures medications are properly disposed of, minimizes impact on the environment and allows our homes and community to become safer.

Organizations help reducing suicides by Senior Airman Aaron-Forrest Wainwright 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs In 2012, the U.S. military hit a record high with 349 suicides, surpassing combat deaths in Afghanistan. The U.S. Air Force is doing its part to reduce those numbers. “Suicide prevention is important everywhere because every life is valuable and getting people to understand that is a big part of suicide prevention,” said Capt. Daphne

Brewton, 86th Medical Squadron mental health flight installation suicide prevention program manager. “A lot of times people will be in the midst of something very difficult and we want to help people understand the problems that they are going through are temporary.” Organizations within the military are focused on reducing suicides. Some of these organizations include the mental health clinic, chaplain services and a crisis hotline for military members and their families.

“I work closely with the chaplains, Airman & Family Readiness Center, and military family life consultants so that we can all work together on how we can make sure people get the right help they need,” Brewton said. “We are constantly trying to get the information out to people that we are here to help.” The Air Force is a family with agencies setup to help deal with various problems Airmen and their families face so that they never believe suicide should be the solution.

“The Ask, Care and Escort program is a suicide prevention program where you remember to ask, care and escort members we are worried about,” said Staff Sgt. Nichole Kuck, 86th MDS mental health flight mental health technician. “We reinforce resiliency and suicide prevention to help people overcome life challenges so you won’t even come to the point where you (might be thinking of taking your own life).” The U.S. Air Force is dedicated to the care and well

being of the physical, mental and spiritual health of Airmen and their families. With the ACE program, every Airmen is on the frontline in helping prevent suicide. When Airmen seek help for their wingmen and themselves, it works toward our goal to end suicide amongst our ranks. If you are thinking of hurting yourself or know someone who needs help, call the Suicide Crisis Hotline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or Ramstein Life Skills at 4792390 or 06371-46-2390.

When they aren’t traveling, they are at Kapaun training for the next possible scenario. “We feel important when we come to work,” said Tech. Sgt. Thomas Stockton, 1st CMXS regional maintenance technician. “We impact all of USAFEAFAFRICA and without us, a lot of missions would have failed.” According to the Airmen who work in the squadron, being part of such a large mission and the effect they have on the rest of the Air Force is what makes it so great to come to work every day and be part of such a unique squadron. Although the personnel spend a greater part of the year traveling, most of them still have families at home, Fine said. They could easily go out and get this job as a civilian and get paid a lot more, but most of them stay just because they love this mission and the camaraderie throughout the shop, it’s like a family. The Airmen of this highly dedicated squadron prove time and time again why they are so good at what they do. Between the constant traveling, deployments and training their no-fail attitude allows them to strive for perfection in every challenge coming their way.

Donate today, save a life tomorrow by Senior Airman Whitney Stork 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs The 86th Communications Squadron sponsored a blood drive from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 18 in the Kaiserslautern Military Community Center food court. The event is dependent solely on volunteers donating their time and blood. The Armed Services Blood Program only collects blood from the military community and all the blood that is collected stays in the community. “The ASBP works hard to replenish blood supplies that ultimately save lives in theater and across the military community,” said Emily Hayes, American Red Cross assistant station manager. “It’s especially important for those that are eligible to give blood and try to donate while they can.” Every pint of blood that is collected can save up to three lives. There was a total of 45 pints of blood collected, which equates to 135 lives that could be saved. “I think it’s important to donate because of the lives you can save with something so easy and it’s no more painful than getting a shot or something fast like that,” said Tech.

Voice of the KMC by Airman Dymekre Allen 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Former Army specialist Isaac Roosevelt, known on local television as “Mr. Funky,” works as an accounting technician for the 86th Force Support Squadron on Ramstein. Roosevelt came to Europe in 1989 with the Army. After returning from Operation Desert Storm, he separated and pursued a musical career. Roosevelt is one of the lucky few who will compete on the television show “The Voice of Germany” and hopes to “get lucky” for a chance to win cash prizes and the hearts of fans and the people of the KMC. Q: How long have you been singing? A: I have been singing all of my life. As a child, my mom was the director for our church choir, and she inspired me. I went on to be a singer for the 76th Army Band. Q: What influenced you to be a participant on “The Voice?” A: Originally, I was contacted by

one of the producers of the show and I performed with members of the past seasons like Rino Galiano, Laura Martin, Butch Williams, and Charles Simmons to name a few. For me, it does not even matter if I win. I know it’s a funny little soap opera, but I can appreciate the soap-opera aspect if I get to make music influencing millions of people. Q: What was your reaction when you realized you were selected to be on the show? A: I was super proud and modest at the same time, to know I was selected to try out for the blind auditions. The Pro Sieben Television Station released information that only 150 people were invited and 64 percent were women. I was very lucky. Q: With all the great talent on the show, what do you think your chances are for coming out on top in the competition? A: My chances for coming out on top in the competition are just as much as everyone else’s. I think my experience will give me a big advantage. I was assigned to the 76th Army Band

as a singer, so I have a lot of stage experience and working with bands. However, in the end, you only have a few seconds to “win” the coaches over because the audience is not involved in the blind auditions. It is just you and the backs of 4 chairs. The judges are trying to win also and like poker try to pick the best hand to win with. You hope to give them something they can feel in 90 seconds. Q: What is your favorite part about being in the competition? A: My favorite part about the show is meeting the main players of the

music business and witnessing all the great musicians and talents. Just being able to give them all I have to give and seeing the best compete is something that is intriguing about the competition because you’re having fun and enjoying every second of the 15 minutes of fame. Q: What’s been the most challenging thing about the competition so far? A: The most challenging part for me is juggling my job here and leavSee VOICE, Page 26

10th AAMDC Soldiers earn Combat Lifesaver certification Story and photo by Staff Sgt. John Zumer 10th Army Air and Missile Defense Command Public Affairs Medics play a vital role on today’s battlefield, treating the injured before their delivery to better equipped medical facilities. But have you ever wondered what happens to an injured Soldier if a medic isn’t available immediately? Soldiers with the 10th Army Air and Missile Defense Command, through recent combat lifesaver training, are now better able to provide initial medical care to the injured before any medic appears. U.S. Army Sgt. Stephen Walkosz, battalion senior line medic, 5th Battalion 7th Air Defense Artillery Regiment, 10th Army Air and Missile Defense Command, served as an instructor for the most recent CLS class held at Rhine Ordnance Barracks, Oct. 15 to 18. It’s a class that Walkosz usually teaches at least once, and sometimes twice monthly. “The main duty of a CLS-trained Soldier is to assist the medics, which usually means acting as a first responder,” Walkosz said. U.S. Army Europe has set a require-

ment for one CLS bag and one CLStrained Soldier to be assigned to each combat vehicle. The bag includes items needed to treat battlefield casualties, such as bandages, tourniquets, needles, etc. Additionally, refresher training must be completed annually for Soldiers to maintain their CLS status. Three days of classroom instruction preceded a final day of field exercises, where Soldiers took part in tactical scenarios designed by Walkosz and his medical team. Amidst pumped-in noise, mud, woods and close-quarters, Soldiers were evaluated on subjects like casualty care, opening and managing a casualty’s airway, completing a combat casualty care card, controlling bleeding, treating chest injuries and requesting medical evacuation for the injured. “We expect them to get flustered,” said Walkosz, who did his part during the scenarios to get Soldiers to think about all aspects of the mission, not just the immediate tasks before them. For U.S. Army Sgt. Ronin Shehu, a Patriot missile engagement controller with Headquarters and Headquarters Battery, 10th AAMDC, the chance to attend the CLS class is something he feels other Soldiers

should do when given the opportunity. “CLS Soldiers may not have the experience of medics, but it’s still a crucial skill that’s often overlooked,” Shehu said. Shehu found the chest decompression, tourniquets, airway management and breathing control areas of instruction the most valuable, but was especially grateful for the chance to put it

all together in a fast-paced field environment. Walkosz agreed, noting that classroom learning can never duplicate the sights, sounds and rush of adrenaline that Soldiers will experience in a real tactical situation “We want to see that when under stress, they still meet the standard,” he said.

No chewing gum on ground A machine for used chewing gum can be found next to the Stiftskirche in the center of Kaiserslautern until midNovember. Citizens are asked to dispose of their gum in the machine and not spit it on the ground, where they stick and become difficult to dispose of. The machines for used chewing gum keep the city from having to use expensive lasers to clean the streets. This idea was highlighted during a scientific idea contest. Six ideas were chosen and worked by scientists in research groups and institutes. Two more machines are set up at the corner of Schneiderand Marktstrasse and on Fackelstrasse 38.

Soldiers from the 30th Medical Command furl their unit colors during a recent ceremony at U.S. Army Garrison Rheinland-Pfalz.

30th Medical Command inactivates, reverts to 30th Medical Brigade WIESBADEN, Germany — The 30th Medical Command inactivated and the unit reverted to the 30th Medical Brigade during a ceremony Oct. 18 in Sembach. Changing from a command to a brigade will not change the unit’s mission. The change results in a lower number of personnel and affects who has direct oversight for the brigade. The 30th MEDCOM used to be a subordinate unit to European Regional Medical Command but now, as 30th MED BDE, is subordinate to U.S. Army Europe. The 30th MED BDE will provide expeditionary theater level medical command

and control, health service support, force health protection and medical synchronization of assigned and attached medical forces. All of this is in support of U.S. Army Europe, and any directed global contingency operations. The brigade, which traces its roots back to 1933 when it was activated as the 30th Medical Regiment, was reorganized as the 30th Medical Command on Oct. 16, 2008. In 2009, it became the first Theater Medical Command to deploy to Afghanistan. (Courtesy of U.S. Army Europe Public Affairs Office)

The following USPS mailing tips are provided to help ensure packages arrive safely and undamaged:

The 2013 holiday season mailing dates for postal customers assigned to the European theater are:

The Box Choose a box with enough room for cushioning material around the contents. When reusing a box, cover up or black out any old labels and markings.

Space Available Mail — Nov. 26 Parcel Airlift — Dec. 3 First Class/Priority Mail — Dec. 10 Priority Mail Express — Dec. 17 These dates are for mail originating in Europe and destined to locations in the U.S. Mail originating in the U.S. and sent to European military addresses use similar mailing dates. U.S. Air Forces Europe and Air Force Africa postal patrons should plan ahead and mail early to ensure letters, cards, and packages arrive at intended U.S. destinations in time for the holidays. Customers can avoid long lines at the post office when they mail early and can take advantage of using the cheaper, although slower, space available mail service military post offices offer in Europe. Space available mail service takes longer to arrive at end destinations and moves on a space available basis once it arrives in the states. If customers want faster service, they should consider using priority mail or priority mail express service. It costs more, but these classes of mail get preferred and or expedited service. Most mail accepted at military post offices in Europe is flown to the U.S. on commercial aircraft. Costumers should keep in mind, packages transiting through the mail stream are handled numerous times, and therefore proper packaging is important.

Cushioning Place cushioning around items. Close and gently shake the box to see whether there is enough padding. Sealing Tape the box shut and reinforce the seams with two-inch-wide tape.

Page 26 VOICE, from Page 20 ing my family in Mannheim. Although my commander and fellow colleagues are very supportive, this is somewhat of a strain on the entire operation. Recording the blind auditions took a week and I could not go home to my family. Q: How does being a former military member play in to the challenges you face in the competition? A: Being a former military member plays a very important role in the show. In the end, they want an interesting story to tell and although “The Voice” is center stage, who you are as an individual supports your level of interest for the viewers. Although this is only its third season, “The Voice of Germany” is one of the most successful shows for the Pro Sieben television station so it has to be entertaining and hold the audience’s attention and make them keep coming back for more. The German people and U.S. military have a very long history and solidarity and I represent the American military, proudly.

Kaiserslautern American Q: If you win, what’s your next move? My first goal if I win is to take a very long vacation. Possibly to Arcadia, Fla., and then come back and get to work on writing hits. Winning the show puts a lot of pressure on the talent. My philosophy is the music business is 50 percent hard work and 50 percent luck. I have been doing the hard work for more than 20 years and it is time for me to get lucky. Keep your fingers crossed. Q: How has being on the show affected your personal life? A: So far, I have been able to balance everything, but I am starting to feel the pressure. People coming up to me on the street and even doing this interview, it’s a lot to take in. I think the biggest reality check though is having a regular job every day. Q: If you don’t come out the victor by the end will you continue to pursue a career in music? A: Music is my life and my passion, to give it up is like asking me to stop breathing. The show must go on.

Same sex marriage policy clarified by Staff Sgt. David Salanitri Air Force Public Affairs Agency, Operating Location WASHINGTON — The Air Force recently published guidance clarifying the service’s policy on implementation of same sex marriage. The guidance clarifies how Airmen may be eligible for administrative absence to obtain legal marriage, if the state or country they are stationed in does not yet recognize same sex marriage. In order to be granted administrative absence, the Airman must be located more than 100 miles from a U.S. state, the District of Columbia or other jurisdictions that allows the couple to marry. According to the policy, if two service members are part of a couple and desire to get married,

both members may be granted an administrative absence if qualified. Members may be granted up to seven days if stationed in the continental United States, and up to 10 days if stationed overseas. The waiting period, required by law, to obtain a legal marriage from the jurisdiction nearest the assignment location is what determines the days. Also, a maximum of two travel days is authorized if stationed in the continental U.S., and five days is authorized if the member is stationed overseas. “This will allow all Airmen to be recognized equally under the law in regards to spousal benefits,” said Maj. Mark Cipolla, Air Force force management policy division. In order to determine eligibility, refer to AFI 36-3003, Military Leave Program.

Ramstein holds annual Wendelinus market by Petra Lessoing 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Ramstein-Miesenbach will hold its annual Wendelinusmarkt 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday in the center of town. “Ramstein’s advertising association started sponsoring Wendelinus market 28 years ago,” said Ralf Hechler, chief of the association. “We gave the fest a new character and keep stores open noon to 6 p.m. Sunday.” Wendelinus market will feature about 80 exhibitors presenting arts, crafts and other merchandise. It also includes a French market with culinary specialties such as patés, terrines, cremant, champagne, crepes and tarte flambée. A flower truck from the Netherlands will bring fresh flowers and children can enjoy rides on merry-go-rounds. The history of Wendelinusmarkt dates back to the beginning of the 18th century when most village residents were farmers, and an epidemic threatened Ramstein’s cattle. People started praying to Saint Wendelinus, the saint of plague, who was asked for help in case of contagious diseases. They promised to celebrate the day of Saint Wendelinus each year if the epidemic would end. The first celebration was on a Monday in 1710. People didn’t want to work that day and schools were closed. Relatives living outside of

Exhibitors and vendors sell their merchandise during Ramstein’s Wendelinus market Saturday and Sunday.

Ramstein came to visit, went to confession and listened to the fest sermon conducted by several priests from three altars, for 12 hours, without interruption. Afterwards, people stopped at the chestnut carnival in front of the church,

where rosaries, crucifixes, prayer books, candles and chestnuts were sold. Years ago, the 12-hour prayer was moved to Sunday, and the local Catholic holiday lost its importance. “We will start Wendelinus market with a short memorial service at 11

a.m. Saturday near the intersection next to the museum,” said Hechler. “All visitors can bring their pets to have them blessed by our Catholic priest.” After the traditional animal blessing, Mayor Stefan Layes will tap the first keg of beer.

Swap meet lures model train enthusiasts by Petra Lessoing 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs The culture center in RamsteinMiesenbach, Haus des Bürgers, will turn into a mecca for model train enthusiasts Sunday. The Model Train Friends Westpfalz will host their 43rd Model Train Swap Meet from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. “Exhibitors and clubs from throughout Germany and neighboring countries will present everything dealing with model trains and accessories,” said organizer Hans-Günther Wenner. “This swap meet is the biggest of its kind in Southwest Germany.” More than 40 exhibitors and associations will display a variety of model trains, accessories and tin toys. Organizers don’t only want the event to be a swap meet, but they also want to make sure that unique items are on display. “Like in recent years we had many

requests for display tables, but unfortunately we were not able to give a positive answer to each requester, since there is only a limited space capacity,” said Wenner. Besides new items, there will be used locomotives, carriages, tracks, signals, houses, lamps, bridges and spare parts. “New and long-time model train collectors can get good advice here and find some neat bargains,” said Wenner. “Collectors who specialize in garden railroad track items, will be able to find the items they need.” Newly bought stuff can be tested right away on special test tracks. Visitors will be able to admire dolls, tin toys and other hobby items. A model train café can be found in the foyer of the Haus des Bürgers. Admission fee is €3 for adults and €1 for youth. Children under 7 are admitted free.

OSI: Help stop fraud in KMC The Air Force Office of Special Investigations’ 13th Field Investigations Squadron, Economic Crimes Division, is accomplishing one of the Air Force’s top priorities: to detect, defeat and deter fraud impacting force acquisitions and base-level capabilities. In much the same way the Eagle Eyes program relies on citizens to report suspicious indicators of terrorism, economic crime investigations often rely on conscientious government employees and contractors to report suspected fraud, waste or abuse. The federal government is beset by fraud on all fronts. For instance, in fiscal year 2012, the U.S. Department of Justice secured nearly $5 billion in settlements and judgments under the False Claims Act in cases involving fraud against the government. Moreover, amounts recovered under the False Claims Act in 2012 exceeded the previous one-year record by $1.7 billion, according to the Justice Department’s website, www.justice.gov. “It’s the people out there doing their job who actually detect fraud,” said OSI Special Agent Lawrence Valdez. “Law enforcement personnel can’t be everywhere at all the times, so we rely on the government personnel to be a force multiplier in identifying fraudulent or suspicious activities.” In general terms, fraud is “a willful misrepresentation for the purpose of obtaining something of value.” Fraud costs American taxpayers more than the combined annual spending of many countries in the world. Examples of fraud investigations include false pay and allowance claims, Government Purchase Card, acquisition and construction, and fraud within services provided on base. Two recent cases investigated by OSI at Ramstein recovered more than $3 million, which was later used to fund other projects in the KMC. Both investigations revealed contractors intentionally deceived the government for monetary gain. The success of both investigations relied heavily on individuals reporting suspicious activity to OSI and its law enforcement partners. OSI Special Agent Tanner Collins emphasized the “big picture” in terms of what results from fraud investigations. “There are measurable dollar savings, accidents are prevented and lives preserved,” he said. “Taken together, these things enhance our combat readiness and increase the public’s confidence in the U.S. Air Force.” OSI provides briefings to educate base personnel about fraud. “We don’t expect everyone to know what constitutes fraud or how to identify it,” Valdez said. “We are always looking for opportunities to give fraud awareness briefings and to educate people in all career fields about common fraud schemes.” To request a fraud awareness briefing or to report suspicious behavior, contact OSI 13 FIS ECD at 0631-536-8341 or 489-8341, or by email at afosi.13fis.ol-j@ogn.af.mil.Callers. Writers have the option to remain anonymous. To learn more about the OSI mission, visit www.osi.af.mil. (Courtesy of OSI)
