86th CPTS closes out fiscal year by 2nd Lt. Kay Nissen 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


he 86th Comptroller Squadron closed out fiscal year 2012 at midnight Sept. 30 on Ramstein. The budget office found this year’s closeout was troublefree while funding the largest wing budget in U.S. Air Forces in Europe. “The closeout was pretty quiet for us,” said 1st Lt. Lyka

Olsen, 86th CPTS Financial Analysis flight commander. “This is a good thing because we didn’t have any surprises — our team leads were aware of all the projects and were able to execute. Teaming with 700th CONS, resource advisers, commanders, cost center managers and government purchase cardholders, it made the end-of-year closeout a great success.” See BUDGET, Page 8

BAUMHOLDER, Germany — Defenders with the 435th Security Forces Squadron hosted a 17-day pre-deployment training course, which began at Sembach Kaserne and ended at U.S. Army Garrison Baumholder. The 435th Regional Training Center hosted security forces Airmen from around U.S. Air Forces in Europe, seven or eight classes a year and a maximum of 104 students at one time. Training consists of dismounted and mounted patrols, land navigation, range estimation, firing weapons, and tactical firing under stress. “Most of the students who come through are young, haven’t deployed yet and got most of their training in tech school, but once they leave here you can tell they’re more confident,” said Staff Sgt. Craig Stott, 435th Security Forces Creek Defender course instructor. “It’s difficult not to have a

successful course with the best cadre in the Air Force doing the training.” Throughout training, members are critiqued by technical orders to ensure each person is following the regulations and does the job that security forces does, he said. “We practice mounted patrols to ensure everyone knows what they’re looking for when it comes to identifying improvised explosive devices, (and) suspicious individuals. We also do mounted patrols for counter-intelligence operations,” Stott said. “For dismounted patrols, members go outside the wire on foot, going on a presence patrol, where security forces members show villagers that they’re there to help. Normally, these aren’t violent, but we prepare just in case things don’t go well.” The training provides younger Airmen a chance to hone their skills before deployment, making sure they’re ready for what’s to come. “I feel ready to deploy.

Lessons in leadership from psychology Commentary

by Lt. Col. Robert Rottschafer 86th Medical Operations Squadron commander

Psychologist Gordon Allport has defined social psychology as a discipline that uses scientific methods to “understand and explain how the thought, feeling and behavior of individuals are influenced by the actual, imagined or implied presence of other human beings.” Social psychologists then apply these ideas to a wide variety of areas, including leadership. While there are countless principles, theories and ideas that social psychologists have identified, there are a few that seem especially relevant to leadership and three that I would like to highlight. The Fundamental Attribution Error The Fundamental Attribution Error is a principle developed by a psychologist named Lee Ross. The principle basically says, when attempting to understand or explain the actions of others, people tend to give too much weight to personality factors and not enough weight to situational or contextual factors. In other words, when we don’t have information about a per-

son’s situation, we tend to explain their behavior in terms of their personality (e.g. “they’re an idiot”). For example, let’s say you’re driving down a busy street and suddenly the car next to you speeds up, cuts you off and makes a right turn into a parking lot causing you to slam on your brakes. Your reaction is most likely something like, “What a jerk,” and you may even make a certain gesture to show your displeasure. You have attributed their behavior to personality characteristics. Now, let’s say you’re driving down the street, you have two small children in the back seat who are crying, you’re rushing to get home because you have a lot to do, and you suddenly remember you need milk. If you don’t make a move now, you’ll miss the turn into the store and have to circle back around, costing precious time in rush hour traffic. Even though you may realize it’s a “jerky move,” you attribute your actions to your situation, not personality characteristics (I’m not a jerk). As leaders, when we don’t know what a person’s situation is, our tendency is going to be similar; we will be quick to explain someone’s misbehavior as willful non-compliance or due

to other negative personality characteristics and will likely come down hard on him/her. However, when we know our people and take the time to see the world through their eyes, we are better able to suspend judgment and take a closer look at why they did what they did. It takes self-discipline to give someone the benefit of the doubt long enough to understand the situation from their perspective. Don’t get me wrong. I am not saying that we should excuse misbehavior, rather that we need to be aware of this tendency and to make sure we have the whole picture before we determine how to respond to the situation.

Learned Helplessness In the late 1960s, Martin Seligman coined the term “learned helplessness” based on his observations during an experiment. In this study, he took a group of dogs and put them in harnesses for a period of time, then released them. For Groups 2 and 3, he also put them in harnesses, but gave them an electrical shock. The dogs in Group 2 could stop the shock by pressing a See LEADERSHIP, Page 7

an exercise, why would we not have them to accomplish our important mission here in the KMC?

QUESTION: I have a question regarding why the extended hours for day care, (child development centers and before and after care) were canceled. I am aware they were set in place to accommodate the exercise that was canceled for real-world events. However, the same individuals who required extended day care hours for the exercise are working extended hours to accomplish the real-world mission. I am aware of the programs in place to accommodate through Family Child Care providers, but to me, because a large population is affected the same as if it were an exercise (probably more so), it would warrant extended hours. To me, the whole reason we have an exercise is to practice for the real thing. Well, here is the real thing. If we have extended hours for

ANSWER: Thank you for sharing your concerns. We understand how expanded work demands in support of our military mission, whether an exercise or real-world, can create additional need for child care. In order to support our military families who are called to duty, there are several measures in place to ensure our Ramstein family is taken care of. In a real-world situation, families are expected to activate their Air Force Form 357, Family Care Certification. The AF Form 357 is required for all dual- and single-military personnel, outlining family care responsibilities pertaining to the performance of military duty. The AF Form 357 is the plan for families to arrange for the care of the family so military members may be available during duty hours, exercises, unaccompanied tours, alerts,

During an exercise, the entire base population is working together to successfully demonstrate its ability to respond to real-world situations. During real-world events, the entire base population may not be actively participating to the same degree as during an exercise. Some units, squadrons or other base organizations may have greater demands placed upon them during a real-world event. In addition, an exercise takes place for a limited period of time. If a CDC or SAP were to open its doors for extended hours to a handful of families on an on-going basis, the financial impact to the installation would be remarkable.

after CDC/SAP hours, the Air Force has the Extended Duty Care program. The FCC and EDC offer free child care, open to active duty, Air National Guard, Reserves and Department of Defense civilians. They assist families in obtaining high-quality child care when weekly parental workloads, due to extended duty hours, exceed hours provided at the

CDC or SAP. It is care that is available days, nights and weekends. EDC can be used on a temporary basis for onbase, mission-related duty, extended duty days, temporary shift changes (not to exceed three days), rapid mobilization, dual/single military deployment until children are picked up by AF Form 357 designee (not to exceed three days), nonotice/short-notice TDY, if

no other family member is available, and if EDC need has been verified with supervisor. Please make note that requests to exceed the threeday time limit are sent to U.S. Air Forces in Europe in advance for approval. EDC cannot be used on a regular, recurring basis. It cannot be used to meet parents’ regular child care requirements, to provide shift-work care where shiftwork is a typical assignment,

during physical training, to provide hourly care for non-duty-related reasons, for off-duty education and employment on a recurring basis, for holidays, family days, CDC/SAP/FCC home closure, or to attend air shows or base functions. If interested in finding out more about EDC or if you’d like to enroll in the program, contact our FCC office at 478-7420/21 or 06371-406-7420/21.

21st TSC inducts 77th Honorary Colonel Story and photo by Mike Bowers 21st TSC Public Affairs Partnership activities with a 21st Theater Sustainment Command unit have earned a German lord mayor and German army reserve lieutenant colonel induction to the command’s Honorary Colonels’ Association during a ceremony Sept. 20 in Fritz Walter Stadium in Kaiserslautern. Norbert Bücherl, lord mayor of his hometown Freihung, Germany, was presented a plaque officially designating him as an Honorary Colonel from Maj. Gen. Aundre F. Piggee, commanding general of the 21st TSC. The Honorary Colonels’ Award is given to local community leaders who, through their personal efforts, work diligently to support the U.S. Army and 21st TSC and foster German-American relationships. Bücherl is the 77th Honorary Colonel but said he is the first inductee from the German region of Unterfranken. “It’s a great honor and distinction for me as a (lord) mayor and reserve officer of a community in the Upper Palatinate to receive this award,” said Bücherl at the ceremony organized and hosted by the 21st TSC’s Theater Logistics Support Center Europe. “And, as I learned today, I am the first inductee here in the Palatinate from the Upper Palatinate. “We are partners not only as far as the military is concerned but also as friends,” Bücherl added. “We stand shoulder-to-shoulder during deployments. Spouses and the children remain behind, alone in a foreign country. Therefore we should, and we want

to, support the families as well. And who better to do so than us Germans who are right there. That is one of the goals of our partnership to come to their aid, assist them a bit.” Bücherl, also the Germany Military Reserve Association chairman, was responsible for establishing and promoting partnership opportunities between Bundeswehr reserve soldiers and the 21st TSC’s 16th Sustainment Brigade. Activities included participation in U.S. Army Europe exercises, changes of command, as well as casing and uncasing ceremonies. He planned and coordinated a series of certification events for U.S. Soldiers to earn the German Armed Forces Badge for Military Proficiency, arranged for a training session on a German Leopard Main Battle Tank, and conducted qualifications events for 50 U.S. Soldiers to earn the German Marksmanship Badge (Schützenschnur). In addition, Bücherl led a joint effort with the 18th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion to raise money for the German War Graves Commission and arranged a trip to Berlin where the battalion’s Soldiers met with the German War Graves Commission. “The induction to Honorary Colonel bears testimony to the high respect and appreciation shown for Mr. Bücherl’s personal efforts in improving German-American relations between the Military Reserve Association-Freihung District and the U.S. Army Europe and between the community of Freihung and the U.S. Army Garrison-Grafenwöhr,” Piggee said. “Friendship and mutual support always count and count even more in these days of transforma-

tion in our command,” Piggee added. “Your support, assistance, cooperation and vital contributions are critical to our success. Your friendship makes us feel home in our local communities throughout Germany. The partnership with our host nation communities makes us stronger and richer, and we will support it now and in the future, because good friends will always remain friends.” In addition to a contingent of 21st commandlevel Soldiers, German dignitaries from politics, public administration, business, science and sports attended the event held in the home stadium of Kaiserslautern’s professional soccer team, 1. FC Kaiserslautern, or the “Red Devils.” “This is a very special day, and I am especially excited to be honored here in Kaiserslautern at this special location, the Fritz Walter Stadium — I am a soccer fan,” Bücherl said.

DOD implements new flight cancellation policy for travelers by Army Sgt. 1st Class Tyrone C. Marshall Jr. American Forces Press Service WASHINGTON — The Defense Department is working with airlines to implement a new flight cancellation policy that will affect air travel for temporary duty travelers, a Pentagon official said today. Andrea Carlock, chief of the program management branch, which serves as part of the Defense Travel Management Office, discussed the genesis of these changes and the potential impact on DOD travelers. “Effective October 1, 2012, any authorization that has airline reservations associated with it will be canceled if not approved and ticketed at

least 72 hours prior to the scheduled flight departure,” she said. “Airlines expressed to GSA, as the program manager, that many of our government travelers were making reservations and were not canceling those reservations,” Carlock said. “Because of the lack of cancellations (for) those reservations, the airlines were losing money.” Carlock said the new policy governs the time requirements for travelers and authorization officials to make and approve arrangements for flights before travel occurs. “The government employee needs to keep in mind that when you make a reservation, be it through (the Defense Travel System) or the Commercial Travel Office, you’re doing just that

lever, which most learned to do quickly. Each dog in Group 3, however, was paired with a dog in Group 2. Every Group 3 dog also had a lever but it did not do anything, and their shock stopped only when the paired dog in Group 2 pressed its lever. To the dogs in Group 3, the shock seemed to come and go randomly. As a result of their experiences, the dogs in Group 3 learned that there was nothing that they could do to control or escape what was happening to them. Since they learned they were helpless, most stopped fighting when the shocks came and just took them. In a follow-on experiment, Seligman took the same dogs and put them in a metal box with a low partition over which they could jump to escape a shock. The dogs in Groups 1 and 2 quickly learned to jump the partition when a shock came, but most of the dogs in Group 3 stayed put and again simply took the shock even though it would have been easy to escape it. Seligman observed that the lessons these dogs had learned in the first experiment stayed and affected how they responded to the negative situation in the second experiment. As leaders, it is vitally important that we understand how past experiences will continue to affect how people feel about themselves and their careers. Sometimes, these lessons are positive and serve to motivate people to push themselves and grow. In other cases, these lessons hold people back as they have learned that nothing they do matters and fighting just makes you tired. Often, these people will also show signs of depression and have difficulty getting motivated with even simple tasks. When we see someone who does not appear to be living up to his/her potential, we must seek to understand why so that we can properly mentor, get them help when needed, and assist them in regaining their sense of control over their life and career. The Self-Fulfilling Prophesy A third concept, the self-fulfilling prophesy, suggests that people unconsciously act in ways that make what they believe or expect to happen come true. A classic experiment that illustrates this

— making (a) reservation,” she said. “If your approving official does not approve that authorization, that ticket cannot be issued. So it could impact your mission and it could increase the cost of travel.” Carlock said these changes could impact your mission. “You could get to the airport and there are no more flights available for that particular time frame,” she said. Or, it could increase costs if the original flight was booked in a lower class of service and now only a higher class is available. This could generate increased costs to the department if authorizations aren’t approved and ticketed in a timely manner. Carlock explained requirements for short notice travel that service mem-

bers and their authorization officials should be aware of. “If you’re going TDY on shortnotice travel, and you’re traveling within 72 hours of your flight departure time, you need to ensure that your (authorizing official) improves that authorization and (it is) ticketed,” she said. “If they do not approve it within 24 hours of creation, the reservation will be canceled.” For travel departing within 24 hours, she said, individuals need to ensure that they get their authorizations approved and ticketed six hours prior to scheduled flight departure time to prevent cancellation.

US Army NATO Brigade uncases colors in Sembach by Sgt. 1st Class John S. Wollaston U.S. Army NATO Brigade Public Affairs The U.S. Army NATO Brigade completed its transition from Tompkins Barracks in Schwetzingen to its new home at Sembach with a colors uncasing ceremony outside of the new brigade headquarters. Maj. Gen. James C. Boozer, commanding general of U.S. Army NATO, 21st Theater Sustainment Command’s Maj. Gen. Aundre F. Piggee and a host of commanders and senior NCOs from the growing list of units moving to Sembach watched as the colors for the NATO Brigade were uncased for the first time since July, when the unit officially began its move to the KMC. “Almost two months ago we cased the brigade colors and said farewell to the city of Schwetzingen and Tompkins Barracks,” said U.S. Army NATO Brigade Commander Col. Robert S. Larsen. “Although that casing ceremony closed one chapter in this brigade’s history, today we

us well here, refreshing the basics and teaching us more detailed techniques for when we go downrange,” said Airman 1st Class Cole Truex, deploying from Royal Air Force Mildenhall. “You never know what’s going to happen when you go outside the wire, but now I feel prepared for if things go badly.” After the training, Airmen take certain things back with them. For one Airman, it was the technology that security forces Airmen have available to them now. “The thing that will stick with me when I head downrange is the technology that we have — things that reduce casualties and make our jobs easier,” said Senior Airman Pedro Sanchez, also deploying from RAF Mildenhall. “It’s amazing the technology the Air Force is providing the security forces Airmen.”

open a new chapter and begin what I know will be a long and fulfilling relationship with the Sembach community.” Larsen thanked the Soldiers and civilians of the brigade for their hard work in completing the move while maintaining unit operations for a brigade that stretches across two continents and 37 locations in 14 countries. “Today’s ceremony marks the culmination of countless hours of

hard work and effort by our Soldiers and civilians,” Larsen said. “This would be no small task for any unit and I’m extremely proud of what they have accomplished.” Larsen also thanked the family members for their patience while the transition was going on. “Any time you move from one home to another it’s a family event. Thank you for your help in making this move to Sembach go as smoothly as it did.”

National Disability Employment Month kicks off at Pentagon by Staff Sgt. Amanda Dick Air Force Public Affairs Agency WASHINGTON — The Headquarters Air Force Disability Resource Group kicked off National Disability Employment Month with an information fair here Monday to educate Air Force members and managers about Disability Employment and Accommodations. “The purpose of today’s event is really to raise the profile here in the Pentagon of employees with disabilities, demonstrate all the different positions we’re holding and demonstrate a lot of the skills we have,” said Dr. Robert Rudney, first co-chair for the DRG. “So, we’re here to advertise the capabilities of people with disabilities and their readiness to work. A lot of this information doesn’t come out very easily, so we decided it would be great to have an information dissemination effort. Spread the word.” The event featured representatives from the DRG, Air Force Exceptional Family Member Program, Air Force and Department of Defense Equal Opportunity Offices, and the Pentagon Computer/ Electronic Accommodations Program Technology Evaluation Center. A main focus of the information fair centered on accommodations for disabled people in the work place. Centrally funded through the Department of Defense, CAPTEC provides technologies for disabled employees to federal agencies and wounded

service members. “We can provide the technology free of charge to the agency. It would be the property of the agency for the individual’s use,” said Erin Sanderson, Pentagon CAPTEC coordinator. “So, depending on if they have vision, dexterity, hearing, cognitive or communication disabilities, we can provide the technology they would need to access the computer environment.” The event also highlighted information for Air Force families who have children with disabilities. “I’m here today to be able to inform families who have special needs about the resources and information they can get from the EFMP family support program,” said Diana Caicedo, EFMP family support specialist. “There are various programs, especially for those families who have transitioning students looking to go into the workplace. There’s vocational rehabilitation and agencies that help with the transition for those with special needs to get out in the work force and be successful employees.” Originally the “National Employ the Physically Handicapped Week,” Congress established October as National Disability Employment Month in 1988.

BUDGET, from Page 1

The 86th CPTS provides budget and accounting support to three wings and 75 geographically separated units and funds more than 200 projects. All projects met the fiscal year goals to protect readiness, reduce overhead costs and apply improvement to force structure and modernization. “We’ve funded the dormitory project for $4.3 million that will improve the quality of life for our Airmen,” said Sarah Bertolucci, civil engineering analysis team lead. As the Air Force looks to fiscal year 2013, the president has signed the FY13 Continuing Resolution (CR), which funds the government for a six month period. The president’s budget requests balances across all mission areas while retaining Air Force core capabilities. Specifically, Air Force finance seeks to rebalance force structure, preserve readiness, modernize the next generation, maximize constrained resources, and protect core support programs. “Ultimately, with fiscal constraints that we are about to face, 86th CPTS will ensure that the mission of the 86th AW, 435th AGOW and 40 tenant units are properly financed while upholding our responsibility to America’s taxpayers,” Olsen said.

Time remains for absentee voting by Karen Parrish American Forces Press Service WASHINGTON — Absentee Voting Week is a reminder that it’s still possible for eligible U.S. voters overseas to register and to vote, the acting director of the department’s Federal Voting Assistance Program said today. “It’s not too late to vote,” said Pamela S. Mitchell to reporters during a telephone news conference. Mitchell said that during Absentee Voting Week, which ended Thursday, FVAP’s staff encourages all service members, spouses, voting-age family members and overseas civilians who haven’t already done so to visit the program’s website at www.fvap. gov to register to vote and request an absentee ballot. “It’s important to note that military voters and their families can certainly participate in this election,” Mitchell said. “It’s not too late to vote.” Registration and ballot deadlines vary by state, she said. “We encourage everyone to double-check those state-specific deadlines,” Mitchell said. “However, in no case is there a deadline any longer than 30 days prior to the (Nov. 6) election to register. So, again, there is still time to register and to request a ballot.” As a backup, she said, voters may submit a federal write-in absentee ballot any time after they submit a federal postcard application to register. More than 600,000 of the postcard applications have been downloaded from the FVAP site, she said. “You can use this write-in ballot as long as you

follow the state deadlines,” Mitchell said. Those who need help can visit one of more than 220 voting assistance offices at installations around the globe, she said, or can speak to one of thousands of unit assistance officers in place to help military voters. Absentee voters, including those deployed or at sea, also can contact their state board of elections directly, visit the FVAP site or call 800-438VOTE(8683), Mitchell said.

Registering to vote is “very expeditious and very easy” through the FVAP website, Mitchell said. The program staff will continue to provide assistance to overseas voters through the end of the election season. As a 25-year Army veteran, Mitchell said she’s “very aware how important it is to be able to exercise your right to vote when you’re away from home. I’m confident that voting assistance is the best it has ever been.”

OSI introduces new smartphone anonymous tip line QUANTICO, Va. — The Air Force Office of Special Investigations has opened its first anonymous tip line that allows submissions from the Internet, via SMS (texting) or using a smartphone application. The application was created in order to capitalize on cyberspace and engage the Air Force community more effectively, officials said.

“This tool will allow anyone to provide OSI with completely anonymous tips on everything from illegal drugs, theft and terrorist activities to potential insider threats,” said Special Agent Daron Hartvigsen, OSI Cyber Investigations and Operations. “Even better, the online and app versions allow individuals to send in photos.” The application also allows for

agents to request more information from the concerned tipster without jeopardizing the tipster’s anonymity. All three avenues allow the tipster to check on the results of their tips. The direct link to the anonymous Internet tip line is www.tipsubmit. com/WebTips.aspx?AgencyID=1111. Individuals can find the app in both the Android and Apple store

as TipSubmit Mobile. They can also send in tips by texting “AFOSI” and their tip to 274637 (CRIMES).

773rd CST builds partnerships during NATO disaster response exercise Story and photo by Sgt. 1st Class Matthew Chlosta 7th CSC Public Affairs TBILISI, Georgia — The 7th Civil Support Command’s 773rd Civil Support Team participated in the annual NATO Euro-Atlantic Disaster Response Coordination Centre partnership foreign consequence management exercise Sept. 22 to 28, held at the Georgian Army’s National

Training Site, here. “Georgia 2012 is an exercise to respond to a simulated earthquake situation here,” said Guenter Bretschneider, director of the EADRCC. The exercise tested the nations’ FCM capabilities to see how they would respond to a real-world disaster in Europe and the Caucasus region. “We’re the only OCONUSbased civil support team in

the Army inventory,” said Capt. Jason Zdunich, 773rd CST operations officer. “The 773rd CST has a two-theater region of responsibility, AFRICOM (Africa Command) and EUCOM (European Command).” “We never know when a call for help may come or where it will come from,” Zdunich said. “If there is a large-scale incident in any country in Europe or AFRICOM, we have to be able to move from

point A to point B, and this exercise is the first time that we’ve actually done it by air. So it’s a great learning experience for us.” Lt. Col. Leslie Dillard, 773rd CST commander, said, “(This) is a great opportunity for us. This is the first time a (U.S.) unit has been able to do this exercise.” Georgia 2012 was also an opportunity for the EADRCC to teach international FCM and CBRN standards to the

participating teams. The variety of scenarios the international teams responded to included: derailment of a railway car, collapsed buildings, chemical spills, radiological substance release as well as a damaged oil pipeline. “There’s one very important aspect, which is the training and the use of internationally agreed stanSee EXERCISE, Page 16

health protection officer for the 21st TSC. “With its highly coveted status, truly the ‘cream of the crop’ are the ones who earn the right to wear the EFMB.” More than 250 U.S. Army Europe medics, including 18 multinational participants from Slovenia, U.K., Germany, Estonia and Italy, competed in the 11-day challenge. The EFMB is a U.S. Army decoration first created on June 18, 1965. This badge is the noncombat equivalent of the Combat Medical Badge and is awarded to foreign and U.S. military medics who successfully complete a set of qualification tests, including both written and simulated combat environment performance. “The hardest part for me, and I think everyone who participated as well, was the medical lanes,” said Spc. Natallia Prudnikava, a medic with the 615th Military Police company, 18th Military Police Brigade. “I think

Kaiserslautern American it’s because all the medical tasks have lots of details that we had to perform step-by-step in sequence in order to get a go on that task, and there were 14 tasks all in one lane. “I think it was a really good experience and I feel I accomplished a lot and also learned a lot while trying to obtain this badge,” Prudnikava continued. To qualify for EFMB testing, multinational participants must meet U.S. Army weapons qualification standards and pass an Army physical fitness test. During EFMB testing, all participants demonstrate their proficiency at tactical combat casualty care and standard and non-standard evacuation operations. They also perform U.S. Army warrior, communications and Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and high-yield explosives tasks, perform day and night land navigation, and complete a 12-mile road march.

observed some of the lane testing and described the difficulty of changes that have been made to the competition and the diversity among the Soldiers participating. “Over the last couple years, we have steadily improved the requirements for EFMB, and the medical community has changed some of the testing — it’s a whole lot harder than it’s ever been before,” Hertling said. “You’re not only seeing Germans, Slovenians, Poles and Estonians, but you’re also seeing some corpsmen from the Navy, as well as a couple of Air Force guys.” The very badge these medics strive so hard for contains a depiction of a stretcher placed horizontally behind a caduceus (staff used as an emblem of the medical profession and as the insignia of the U.S. Army Medical Corps) with a cross of the Geneva Convention at the junction of the wings. “This year, seven more of our finest 21st TSC Soldiers proudly wear this on their chest,” Briones said.

Baumholder observes Hispanic American Heritage Month A Hispanic fashion show, presented by children and adults from the Baumholder community, was one of the highlights of Baumholder’s Hispanic American Heritage Month celebration Sept. 28 at the Heart of the Rock Dining Facility on Smith Barracks. The day’s program also included an inspirational presentation by Col. Francisco Ruiz, Baumholder Dental Clinic commander, about what it means to be Hispanic and of the great importance Hispanics place on family values. There were also rhythmic Hispanic dance performances by Inessa Leskoval and Mark Word. The afternoon was rounded off with free Mexican food courtesy of the Mexican Cantina in Einsiedlerhof.

he 21st Theater Sustainment Command has scheduled an Amnesty Day to allow individuals to turn in abandoned or unauthorized ammunition and explosives from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Theater Logistics Support Center-Europe Ammunition Supply Point 9 at the Miesau Army Depot. Abandoned or unauthorized ammunition and explosives come from a variety of sources, including training ranges, souvenirs from peacekeeping missions and military artifacts. The possessor could face disciplinary action, if found in possession of these items. The amnesty program provides a means of turning in such items with no repercussions or disciplinary action, while remaining anonymous. The program, however, is not intended to circumvent normal ammunition turn-in procedures. Those turning in unauthorized ammunition and explosives during Amnesty Day need to notify the guard at the turn-in point of the presence of amnesty items. The guard will provide escort to and from the turn-in point. For more information on the amnesty program and the 21st TSC Amnesty Day, call 481-3516/3664 or 06372-842-3516/3664.

How does heat work in the KMC? Temperatures are falling and winter is on its way. So, when will the heat be turned on, and how does it work? Most of the buildings here in the KMC, including housing, are connected to central hot water heating plants. These plants produce hot water and distribute it to our buildings to provide heat through radiators. During the summer months, so little heat is needed that most of the system is deactivated. Once the temperatures drop to 55 F for five consecutive days and forecasts indicate that the average temperature for the next five days will stabilize below 55 F, the heat is reactivated. This is based on review of the weather data for the past seven years. In the KMC, the heating season is typically from October to May. What do I do if the centralized heat is not currently activated? First, conserve the heat you have already. Close the windows and window coverings at night to reduce heat loss. Close the doors to rooms you seldom use to help keep heat in the rooms you do use. Second, take advantage of natural heating. Open drapes and rollladens during the day so the sun can

Set the right temperature!

warm the inside of the room, just like the sun warms the inside of your car. If it is warmer outside than inside, open the windows to allow the warm outside air into the room. Close the windows in the evening when the outside temperatures begin to drop. Also, dress appropriately for the season. Layering is the best way to ensure your comfort throughout the day.

Once the heat is activated, how do I set the temperature? Your radiator control will look similar to the one pictured below. These controls are very different from the thermostats we see in the U.S. This radiator control is both the thermostat and the valve that controls the amount of hot water flowing through the radiator (thermostatic control valve). For the control to work properly, it must be surrounded by free circulating air. Do not cover it with clothes, curtains or furniture. Below is a chart that explains what the numbers and symbols mean. Cut it out and tape it up some place for future reference. Note: radiators do not provide instant heat. Hot water must pass through the radiator before the heat from the radiator is transferred to the room. Set the thermostat and allow time for the tem-

perature of the room to come up before making any more adjustments. Radiators are usually located below windows, which is normally the coldest part of the room. A setting of “3” should provide comfortable heat for the entire room. All too often, radiators are being constantly adjusted and then windows opened when it gets too hot. This is a huge waste of energy and money. Last year, the KMC’s heating bill alone was nearly $22 million. By following these simple steps, you will ensure the comfort of your home and workplace, while saving energy and helping to lower that bill. Let’s all work together to be good stewards of our resources. The thermostat/radiator combination is a simple and reliable system with few moving parts to malfunction. However, if the control valve malfunctions there will be either no heat or too much heat. Occasionally, air gets trapped inside the radiator and needs to be removed. Indications that air is trapped inside are knocking or gurgling noises or a radiator that only feels hot to the touch on one half. For assistance with any of these difficulties, call CE Customer Service at 489-6623 or 489-7703. (Courtesy of 86th Civil Engineer Squadron)

Winter safety tips Winter weather can be tiring! As the seasons change and fall begins, our days become shorter and most of us will be traveling to and from work during hours of darkness. Reduced visibility and slippery roads caused by rain or fog will soon become normal day-to-day traffic hazards to be mindful of. As a vehicle operator, you have a responsibility to identify and avoid hazardous situations, many of which can be avoided by taking simple precautions. Preparing your vehicle for the upcoming inclement weather in Germany is essential, especially when temperatures are near freezing. Having proper winter or all-weather tires, serviceable wiper blades, and ice scrapers can alleviate an unfortunate situation. In November 2010, Germany tightened the law on winter tires. Specifically, M+S-Reifen, mud-and-snow tires that have an official M+S (Matsch und Schnee) marking on them, are required from October through Easter. All-year or all-weather M+S tires are also acceptable. Additionally, U.S. Army Europe Office of the Provost Marshal officials now state that motor vehicles, including motorcycles and four-wheeldrive vehicles, must have clearly marked winter or all-season tires when there is black ice, snow, slush, ice or frost on German roads. The German automobile club, ADAC, recommends going a step further and getting tires with the “three-peak-mountain” seal, which is an indication of snow tires that meet the highest standards. Also, though German traffic regulations require a minimum snow tire tread depth of 1.6 mm, ADAC recommends 4.0 mm. The bottom line is that, if the police catch you driving in winter conditions without M+S tires, you’ll have to pay a €40 fine plus a point against you in the central register of all traffic violations in Germany. If you are involved in an accident or you

block traffic in icy conditions without M+S tires, the fine increases to €80 and a point against you in the Flensburg central traffic offense register. It’s better to be seen than hurt Pedestrians also have traffic safety responsibilities. Many units conduct scheduled PT immediately prior to and following normal duty hours. These activities may include jogging or walking along roadways and intersections. According to the traffic safety instruction, while jogging or running on roadways at night or in inclement weather (e.g., fog, rain, sleet, snow), personnel will wear clothing containing retro-reflective properties or retro-reflective accessories visible from the front and back. This means that, if you are wearing personal fitness gear, you should be wearing a reflective belt or vest. Air Force PT gear qualifies, but be aware that if you are wearing PT gear that’s years old, the reflective properties have likely diminished and they should be replaced. Finally, headphone use on all roadways and sidewalks on base is prohibited. It is permitted in designated areas that include the northwest portion of the Hercules Trail, the Rails to Trails track east of Lawn Avenue, and the fitness area adjacent to the South Side Fitness Center. Also, headphone use off-base is prohibited when running, jogging, walking, skating or bicycling on roadways or trails that are subject to any type of vehicle traffic. Wearing reflective clothing and restricting your headphone use when exposed to traffic environments in the streets or parking lots, and especially during hours of darkness and reduced visibility, will ensure you are practicing sound safety principles.

Commissary Rewards Card now available at Ramstein Commissary FORT LEE, Va. — The Commissary Rewards Card is now available in the Ramstein Commissary. This card allows customers to access digital coupons online and redeem them in any commissary by scanning the card at checkout. “We’re very excited about this new initiative,” said Defense Commissary Agency Director and CEO Joseph H. Jeu. “These cards allow our customers to reduce the number of paper coupons they have to clip and carry. That saves our customers time, effort and money.” The cards, available only from a commissary, are easy to use. As an introductory offer, customers who pick up their card by Oct. 24 receive preloaded digital coupons that can be used immediately in the commissary, even before the card is registered. To register their card and add more digital coupons, customers visit the commissary website at www.commissaries.com/ rewards/index.cfm. Once a card is registered, customers can print a list of their digital coupons to carry with them to the commissary to help keep track of their savings. New digital coupon offers are typically posted online every two to three weeks. Customers who register their card by Oct. 24 can enter the 2012 Commissary Rewards Card Home for the Holidays Sweepstakes, sponsored by Dr Pepper Snapple Group for a chance to win round-trip airline tickets for four to anywhere in the states, lodging in a hotel room that accommodates four for six days and five nights, and $1,000 spending money. The sweepstakes entry form appears at the end of the registration process online. Just like their paper counterparts, digital coupons have expiration dates and other terms and conditions that must be followed for redemption. However, Commissary Rewards Card digital coupons will not be accepted in commissaries overseas for up to six months after expiration, as paper coupons are. This is because the coupons are distributed digitally and instantly available to all customers worldwide. Once a coupon expires, it will disappear from the customer’s account. DeCA’s coupon policy limits coupons to one per purchase, so these digital coupons cannot be combined with manufacturer coupons, including paper coupons and military or commissary coupons. Future enhancements to the card are expected to enable DeCA’s industry partners to target savings based on the customer’s specific usage, alert patrons to available sales promotions at their local stores and reward consistent shoppers with specific incentives. “Digital couponing is the first of many innovative programs that are part of our Commissary 2020 vision to deliver a 21st century benefit,” Jeu said. “We are always working with our industry partners to negotiate the lowest possible prices and identify new ways for our customers to save even more.” For more information on this card, visit www. commissaries.com/faq and click on “Commissary Rewards Card.” Help is also available through the customer service hotline at 855-829-6219 or by email at commissarysupport@inmar.com.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month by Capt. Shamana Stevens 86th Medical Group


very three minutes, a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer in the U.S. and every 13 minutes, a life is lost to this disease. In fact, one out of every eight American women will be affected by breast cancer in their lifetime. More than 240,000 patients a year are diagnosed with breast cancer, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention esti-

mates that there will be 40,600 breast cancer deaths next year, 400 of which will be men. African-American women experience higher death rates from breast cancer than any other racial or ethnic group. The statistics are startling, which is why we take the time to acknowledging this important annual health observance. What is breast cancer and how does it happen? Breast cancer is an uncontrolled growth of breast cells. It is caused by a genetic

abnormality or a “mistake” in the genetic material. Ninety percent of these abnormalities happen as a result of the aging process. Only 5 to 10 percent are due to an inherited gene from a mother or father. No one really knows for certain why some women develop breast cancer and others do not, but research has identified factors that increase the probability of developing the disease. Risk factors • Being a woman 40 years of age and older

• Family history — If a mother, sister or daughter has developed breast cancer before menopause, you are three times more likely to develop the disease. If two or more close relatives (cousins, aunts, grandmothers) have had breast cancer, you are at increased risk. However, of diagnosed cases, 70 percent of women do not have a family history. • Personal History — If you have already had breast cancer or benign breast disease, you are at increased risk of breast cancer. Menstruation before age 12, consumption of birth control pills, having children at age 30 or older, menopause at age 55 or older and hormone replacement therapy also will elevate risk level. Higher estrogen levels are strongly linked with susceptibility to breast cancer. • Lifestyle — There is a higher proportion of breast cancer among obese women. According to the American College of Physicians, women who eat a diet high in transfat are more likely to have breast cancer. Consuming two alcoholic beverages per day can have up to a 40 percent increase in your chances of developing breast cancer. How to reduce your risk. A healthy lifestyle goes a long way in helping reduce your cancer risk. Research shows there is more breast cancer cases in overweight and obese women than in women who are not. So, losing weight or maintaining a healthy weight is one of the first steps to take at lowering your risk. This can be achieved by eating a vari-

ety of nutritious, unprocessed food and exercising most days of the week. Limit the amount of alcoholic beverages. One 5-ounce glass of wine can have up to 140 calories. Women who breast-feed typically have lower rates of breast cancer. So if you are able, breast-feed newborns. Early Detection • Ask your provider which screening tests are right for you if you are at higher risk • Have a a mammogram every year starting at age 40 if you are at average risk • Have a clinical breast exam at least every three years starting at age 20 and every year starting at age 40 • Know what is normal for your breast tissue. Notify your provider if you notice any of the following changes: lumps; hard knots or thickening inside the breast or underarm area; swelling, warmth, redness or darkening of the breast; changes in the size or shape of the breast; dimpling or puckering of the skin; itchy, scaly sores or rashes on the nipple; pulling in of your nipple or other parts of the breast; nipple discharge that starts suddenly; new pain in one spot that doesn’t go away. For breast cancer, early detection is the best protection. If you are a woman over the age of 40 and you don’t have any of the breast changes listed above, breast surgeries, a personal or family history of breast cancer, and are not pregnant or breast-feeding, you can call the Landstuhl Radiology Department at 06371-86-7367 or 06371-868155 to schedule a mammogram.

18th MPs strengthen partnership with NATO allies by Staff Sgt. Tramel S. Garrett 18th MP Brigade Public Affairs WALCZ, Poland — Soldiers from the 709th Military Police Battalion, 18th MP Brigade, 21st Theater Sustainment Command, teamed with the Polish military and other NATO nations to continue strengthening their partnership during the Anaconda 12 training exercise Sept. 17 to 28. Anaconda 12 was conducted to assist the Multinational Corps Northeast in exercising their battle-staff training and to foster partnership among participating nations. The 18th MP Bde. is no stranger to NATO forces, as they conducted planning sessions and training in the past with Polish Military Police. Some of the training included marksmanship and military working dogs tactics. During this exercise, the 630th MP Co. conducted joint missions with Polish Armed Forces, including escorts, checkpoints, traffic control points and route reconnaissance. “The training has been pretty interesting. I have learned some of their tactics and I believe it would work for us,” said Sgt. Donald Manhalter, 527th MP Company. “You never know what could happen, and to have great allies like the Polish is always beneficial.” For this reason, the 18th MP Bde. continues to take advantage of opportunities to exchange battlefield techniques and enhance NATO partnerships with participating nations. “Due to the proposed high intensity warfare scenario, we are also learning how a military police brigade can adapt from recent past missions that involved counter-insurgency operations and still conduct our MP functions to help win on the battleEXERCISE, from Page 9

dards,” Bretschneider said. NATO has developed guidelines and minimum standards for the response to chemical, biological or radiological incidents and we are training that as well.” Building partnerships in lieu of a future disaster was another Georgia 2012 exercise objective. “(The goal) for me as the commander … it’s (about) building partnership capacity, it’s building the relationships that we’ll need because (in the) real world this may happen,” Dillard said. “So, I want to be able to work with those countries that I may have to respond to. They’ll know who we are. They’ll already know our capabilities, and what we’re able to do.” During the exercise, the U.S. team worked alongside the Armenians, Georgian, Polish and Kazakhstan teams as well as the Azerbaijan CBRN team. “I think it’s great that we’re working with multiple different countries,” said Sgt. 1st Class Timothy Butler,

Additionally, VIPs were shown a military equipment display and a roll call for fallen Soldiers. “We hope to achieve good relations with the partnering nations for future training exercise opportunities and to exchange useful battle staff techniques and methods to take back to our battalion staff for our future staff exercises,” Rubbo said.

KMC fire department to host Fire Prevention Month campaign by Tech. Sgt. Jason Lewis Fire prevention inspector


fire can spread in a house rapidly, leaving little time to escape. Knowing what to do and planning escape routes can determine whether or not one gets out safely. According to the National Fire Protection Association, only one-in-five households develop or practice a fire escape route to ensure a quick and safe exit from the building. Are you part of the 80 percent ignoring this important safety practice? This year’s theme for National Fire Prevention Month, which takes place from Monday to Oct. 31, is, “Have 2 Ways Out,” and implementing and practicing an evacuation plan is a great way to keep you and your family safe. The KMC Fire Department is urging families to use the occasion as an opportunity to make sure each household has a proper evacuation plan set in place. Fire Prevention Month also suggests using the month as motivation to practice other fire safety inspections, such as checking the batteries in smoke detectors and inspecting fire extinguishers. Making and practicing a home evacuation plan means thinking about your home on fire and your loved ones in danger, which is frightening. But not taking these actions puts you and your family at great risk. Checking your smoke alarm batteries takes only minutes and is one of the most important things you can do monthly to keep your family safe. The KMC Fire Department recommends families use National Fire Prevention Month as an opportunity to follow these seven steps to safety. Evacuation Plan Create a home evacuation plan. Physically draw this plan, noting two escape routes from every room. Keep these routes clean and free of clutter. You should also designate a meeting place some distance away from the house where everyone knows to gather. Review the evacuation plan. Set up several dif-

For example, to make sure everyone knows what to do should a fire occur while they are sleeping, have them lie down in bed and then press the test button to set off the smoke alarm. (Note: Family members who would be using fire ladders to evacuate bedrooms on upper floors should practice setting the ladders up in their actual windows, but should practice escaping from first floor windows.) Get out and stay out. Many people try to fight home fires themselves or, having escaped the home, return to save their possessions. These actions are dangerous since fires spread very quickly. The most important safety action you can take during a home fire is to commit to getting out, staying out and calling for help.

Smoke Alarms Install alarms. At minimum, you should have one smoke alarm on every floor and outside of every sleeping area. (Family members who sleep with their doors closed should have smoke alarms installed inside their bedrooms, too). If a member of the household has challenges — such as hearing loss — that would prevent the alarms from being effective, contact your fire department to learn about safety alternatives. Check and replace batteries. You should test all your smoke alarm batteries at least once a month. Generally, the batteries will need to be replaced every six months, though some alarms use 10-year lithium ion batteries. Determine which batteries your alarm uses and schedule reminders to replace them when necessary, making a notation in your calendar as appropriate. The smoke alarms themselves should be replaced every 10 years. Explore alternatives. Most people are familiar with battery-powered smoke alarms, but they are not the only ones available. Hard-wired alarms have an even better record of alerting residents to home fires, and, when placed on all floors, interconnected smoke alarms can increase safety as well. Fire sprinklers are another cost-effective safety alternative and can also reduce the cost of homeowners’ insurance. A noise you can live with. Who hasn’t wanted to disable a smoke alarm when it goes off because you’ve burned something in the kitchen? Try to avoid the temptation to do this, but if you must, replace and reconnect them immediately. The campaign this year includes distributing fire prevention information and educating people. For Fire Prevention Month you will see Sparky and his fire prevention friends at the Kaiserslautern Military Community Center on Ramstein and at commissaries and schools. Sparky will be out in public not only showing his presence, but making sure residents are well educated on practicing safe prevention techniques.

Since its establishment in 2009, the Caring for People Forum has evolved into a two-day seminar during which forum attendees divide into working groups at the beginning and develop initiatives to fix Air Force issues that affect Airmen and their families. More than 140 active-duty, Guard, Reserve and civilian Air Force members participated in the forum, each contributing their unique total force perspective on the issues discussed during the working group meetings. “These issues all relate to how the Air Force takes

care of its Airmen and their families,” said Carl Buchanan, the Caring for People Forum manager. “Without the participants’ input, we can’t achieve the forum’s ultimate goal — making the Air Force better.” During their presentations, group leaders spoke

on why initiatives were chosen and how CAIB and IDS members could potentially resolve each concern. Twelve issues were briefed, with top initiatives revolving around similar subject matters. Some of the discussed initiatives include the Air Force’s Exceptional Family Member Program, housing options for single Airmen, and immigration and naturalization assistance programs. Secretary of the Air Force Michael Donley, who spoke at the conclusion of the forum, told the participants there’s nothing more important to the Air Force than its Airmen and their families. “By attending this forum, you have provided leadership with a glimpse into how we can enhance the lives of our most important asset,” Donley said. “By attending, you not only help them but have taken steps to actively improve the whole force.” Air Force CAIB and IDS members will meet in October to discuss the initiatives and decide upon courses of action to address the concerns.

Ramstein Rabbits push Airmen to succeed by Airman 1st Class Hailey Haux 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


hat goes through your head when you receive that email saying it’s time for you to take your physical training test? Do you shrug it off with confidence knowing you are going to pass? Or do you start working out every day and stress over it? If it’s the running component that is your stressor, the Ramstein Rabbits can help with that. This team was formed in early June by a group of co-workers who wanted to push their fellow Airmen with that part their PT test. “We had Airmen in our shop who struggled with the run,” said Senior Master Sgt. Don Gurganus, American Forces Network, Ramstein superintendent and member of Ramstein Rabbits. “They would start off too fast and not be able to finish strong or too slow and have to make up for lost time.” Since the organization was started, the Ramstein Rabbits have helped eight people with their PT test, all of whom said they ran faster than they had anticipated. “When we go out there to pace someone we like to have three people,” Gurganus said. “One will run at the pace the tester wants to achieve, one will run about 30 seconds faster than that time and the third will run right next to the tester and motivate them throughout the run.” With 25 members, at any given PT test there can be five to 10 people surrounding the track cheering the tester on and motivating them.

Members of the Ramstein Rabbits help prepare an Airman for her upcoming physical training test Tuesday at the Ramstein Southside Fitness Center. The Ramstein Rabbits were formed by a group of service members who wanted to push their fellow Airmen to succeed with the run component of the PT test.

“We don’t guarantee the tester will pass,” Gurganus said. “But we can promise them a constant pace. However, it is up to the tester to pass the run. We can’t run for them, but we do our best to motivate them and keep them going.” When someone asks for help to pace a run, the Ramstein Rabbits try to get together with the tester ahead of time to discuss their PT history, what they struggle with and what their warm-up routine is. The day of the test all mental limitations are removed. Their watch is

taken away and the timers are asked not to call the time out when the tester runs by, Gurganus said. “A lot of the time the tester will impose mental limits, thinking that they can’t do it,” said Master Sgt. Tracy Duplantis, AFN Ramstein first sergeant and member of Ramstein Rabbits. “We are there to support them and give them positive thoughts and we get really good results from that.” If a person needs help, they don’t have to be embarrassed to ask, the Ramstein Rabbits are there to help anyone — Airmen, Soldiers, Sailors

and Marines. “Having the Ramstein Rabbits helps a lot,” said Senior Master Sgt. Jennifer Segerson, 86th Communications Squadron operations flight branch chief. “They help turn what could be a bad day into a good one.” There are both male and female pacers to help out, Gurganus said. The Ramstein Rabbits have a Facebook page where anyone can leave a message if they need a pacer for their next PT test. They can also be reached through any Ramstein first sergeant.

AF leaders encourage energy savings in latest ‘Letter to Airmen’ WASHINGTON — Secretary of the Air Force Michael B. Donley, Chief of Staff of the Air Force Gen. Mark A. Welsh III and Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force James A. Roy issued a tri-signature “Letter to Airmen” Sept. 28. As part of Energy Action Month this October, the Air Force’s top three leaders reminded Airmen that individual efforts do have an effect on energy savings. “October is Energy Action Month for our nation. To emphasize each of our roles in energy savings, the Air Force has adopted ‘I am Air Force Energy’ as our theme. As energy consumers, we can impact the Air Force’s fuel and electricity use every day — by flying our aircraft at

energy efficient altitudes, not letting vehicles or equipment idle, or simply turning off the lights. While individual efforts may seem small, they can have a big impact when multiplied across the Air Force,” the letter states. To view the entire letter, visit www.af.mil/ news/story.asp?id=123320412 and click on the link in the middle of the story. To assist in creating awareness of Energy Action Month, SAF/PAO has created a toolkit with talking points, a suggested activity list, a campaign plan, and a commander’s call speech.

Tricare users have options for host nation referrals HEIDELBERG, Germany — Tricare users now have two options for receiving authorizations and medical documentation if they need to be seen by a host nation health care provider. International SOS, the Tricare service provider for Europe, sends referral authorizations to the health facility and the designated host nation provider within three business days of request and before the patient’s appointment. Those who prefer to pick up their authorizations from their local Tricare service center should wait at least three business days after the referral is made, said Michelle Jones, European Regional Medical Command’s Tricare contract liaison officer. “Although beneficiaries are not required to handcarry referral authorizations to their host nation provider, they are encouraged to do so,” Jones said. “They will still need to hand-carry their medical documentation.” Tricare service centers should offer beneficiaries two options for receiving authorizations and medical documentation: • Beneficiaries may receive their authorization and medical documentation via email from the center, or • Beneficiaries may stop by the center to pick up their authorization and medical documentation. Beneficiaries still have three choices for making appointments: • Beneficiaries may book their own appointment. • Beneficiaries may call the Tricare Overseas Program regional call center to request assistance in booking their appointment.

• Army health facility Tricare service centers may book appointments for beneficiaries. Beneficiaries who have questions about the referral and/or emailing process should contact their local health facility Tricare service center. Tricare access to care standards require that appointments for Tricare Prime beneficiaries be made according to these guidelines: Acute care: 24 hours Routine care: 7 days Wellness: 28 days Specialty: 28 days


There are special procedures that beneficiaries need to be aware of when traveling back to the U.S. “The Tricare Overseas Program web site explains the process of TOP enrolled beneficiaries seeking care stateside,” Jones said. “As a reminder, emergent care never requires an authorization, but all urgent care requires an authorization. If you are stateside and require urgent care, please contact International SOS or your local service center for assistance.” Stateside routine care authorizations are rare and only authorized with prior justification from the patient’s primary care manager and with health care coordination, Jones added. The Tricare Overseas Program web site also offers information for all Tricare beneficiaries, such as contact numbers for claims and customer service. The Tricare Overseas Beneficiary Handbook and other literature may also be

downloaded from the site, Jones said.


At host nation provider appointments, Tricare Overseas Prime beneficiaries should present their Tricare Prime Overseas Program enrollment card. Enrollment card examples can be viewed at www.tricare-overseas.com/Provider01_b02. htm. In addition to referral authorizations that will be sent directly to the host nation provider by International SOS, the enrollment card validates that the bearer is the Tricare Prime beneficiary for whom the referral authorization was written. Each family member enrolled in Tricare Overseas Prime should have a card. Beneficiaries who did not receive a card or need a replacement card should contact the Tricare Overseas Program regional call center and press Option 4. In Germany, call the toll-free number 0800-5891599. “Army health facility Tricare service centers will continue to provide host nation patient liaison services, health care finders, beneficiary counseling and assistance, and debt collection assistance,” Jones said. All beneficiaries should visit www.tricare.mil for plan and benefit information. Beneficiaries can access country-specific toll-free contact numbers and a useful “Find-A-Provider” search tool at the Tricare Overseas Program website at www.tricareoverseas.com. Forms and links to other Tricare overseas programs are also available at that site. (Courtesy of Tricare)

The Army, as well as the acquisition career field, has prepared Bisswurm for this opportunity. “I love the expeditionary side of contingency contracting,” Bisswurm said. “I love doing missions, and I love being on a team.” One of the objectives of the TWI is to provide Soldiers’ hands-on experience in top defense, information technology and pioneering commercial companies. The program helps improve communication between commercial industry and the Army.

Bisswurm joined the Army in 2000 and made the transition into contracting in 2008 following a second combat deployment in Iraq. “I wanted to broaden my skills,” he said. “Being in a combat deployment, I saw the direct impact contracting had on the war fighter.” Bisswurm added that he wants to use the skills he learns at Google and take them back with him to his next assignment. “I want to have a different perspective on decision making, theory, manufacturing, and problem solving,” he said. “I think the Army gains tenfold on this program. The experience and insight are immeasurable.” Selected officers, warrant officers and noncommissioned officers are placed in jobs with industry partners and exposed to innovative industrial management tactics, techniques and procedures that can benefit the Army. After completing the training, participants are immediately placed in a mandatory follow-on Army assignment to improve the Army’s ability to interact and conduct business with industry. “We want our guys to benchmark lessons learned and affect positive change in the Army Acquisition Corps,” said Scott Green, acquisition education and training branch chief, U.S. Army Acquisition Support Center.

Annweiler highlights chestnuts by Petra Lessoing 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

Annweiler/Trifels celebrates its 12th annual chestnut festival Saturday and Sunday.

Annweiler/Trifels will celebrate its 12th annual chestnut fest Saturday and Sunday. More than 30 market stands will be established on Rathausplatz, where vendors will offer their merchandise from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Stores will offer a special shopping time from 1 to 6 p.m. Sunday. The event will highlight the chestnut. Usually, edible chestnuts only grow south of the Alps, but the Romans once brought the tree to the wine-growing areas of the Pfalz. Thanks to the mild climate in the Palatinate Forest and in the area around Annweiler, called Trifelsland, conditions for chestnut trees to grow are excellent. During the chestnut harvest time, several events will take place, such as this chestnut fest, the wine and chestnut market Oct. 13 and 14 in Edenkoben, and the chestnut week Oct.

15 to 21 in Hauenstein. Local restaurants will serve special menus and the Annweiler Tourist Office will offer guided culinary chestnut hikes. During Annweiler’s chestnut fest, visitors can enjoy a variety of food and beverage specialities made of chestnuts, including soup, bratwurst, dumplings, cake, crepes, marmalade, honey, ice cream, liquor and beer. Vendors will offer fall decoration items, such as soap, jewelry, sheep products and fruit. Palatinate delicacies will include onion cake with new wine and tarte flambee. The crowning of the ninth chestnut princess will take place at 2 p.m. Saturday in front of the city hall. Musical entertainment will be provided in the afternoon on both days on the festival grounds. Children can also enjoy rides on a merry-go-round. For more information on chestnut events and hikes, visit www.trifelsland.de.

An appeal to all dog owners Courtesy of the Office of Public Order Weilerbach Union Community Administration

ity officials said they continue to observe dog owners walking their dogs on public paths, meadows, parks, cemeteries and playgrounds to let them defecate. It should be common sense that these areas, especially children’s playgrounds and public parks, are inappropriate as dog toilets. Dog excrement transfers numerous bacteria and pathogens that pose a high risk to the health of the children playing in the area and to all those taking care of the parks. Therefore, all dog owners are asked to watch their dogs and prevent them from defecating in these areas. Also, every dog owner must ensure his or her dog does not relieve himself on foreign or public property. If a dog should still defecate on such property, owners are asked to clean it up. Furthermore, farmers keep pointing out that mead-

ows and agricultural cropland bordering paths should not serve as dog toilets because of the chance of food contamination, which can cause serious diseases. Dog owners are also asked to watch their dogs and prevent them from barking or howling, which can disturb the neighborhood. According to the effective law, dog owners must make sure the dogs do not bark, whimper or howl between 1 and 3 p.m. (siesta time) and 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. (night quiet hours). Outside of this time frame, a dog’s barking must not be audible longer than 10 minutes at a stretch or a total of 30 minutes per day. The dog should be kept in a way that the barking or howling does not disturb others more than can be prevented. If necessary, the dogs have to be kept in a locked room or house to ensure preservation of public peace and adherence to the regulations set out by the animal protection law. Owners are asked to walk their dogs on a leash so as to not endanger or scare anyone. All dog owners are asked to follow the existing regulations and to keep their dogs in a way that does not bother the general public.

Gaining confidence, tranquility through Aikido Story and photo by Airman 1st Class Holly Cook 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Peace, confidence and self-awareness. Mastering these qualities is just part of what the youth of the KMC learn in the youth Aikido class. According to www.senshiaikikai. com, Aikido, also known as the “Art of Peace,” is a traditional Japanese martial art that was developed in the 1920s. The art teaches students to redirect the energy of the attack rather than challenging it. When using this technique, the aggressor loses their balance and is thrown off or immobilized. Since April, the class has taught more than 150 children, ages 5 to 12, averaging 15 students per class. “With Aikido you don’t have to be young or skinny; it’s built for everyone,” said Silvia Eschenlauer, Ramstein Aikido class instructor. “I can show the children how to use skills that don’t need a lot of muscular abilities to perform.” Having the larger age range for the class allows the students practice the art with others who may be larger, smaller, older or younger. Due to the Aikido principle of “non-resistance,” the children perform techniques against opponents of any size or age. “Practicing in class with someone who is bigger than them lets them

Members of the youth Aikido class practice different defensive techniques Sept. 11 at the Youth Center on Ramstein. The children participate in the Aikido class to learn self-defense techniques from 5:45 to 6:30 p.m. and 6:30 to 7:15 p.m. Tuesdays.

know that they can defend themselves against any size opponent,” Eschenlauer said. “It helps build their sense of freedom and confidence.” When the students practice techniques on each other in class, Eschenlauer coaches them on what they are doing right and wrong. “Seeing the children receive reassurance from me and their partner, lets me know that they are learning,” Eschenlauer said. “When they prac-

Learning self-confidence, tranquility, timing and balance are key ingredients in the youth Aikido classes, which take place from 5:45 to 6:30 p.m. and 6:30 to 7:15 p.m. on Tuesdays.
