the first panels into place. “It’s an important project that we’ve been working on for some time,” Crisp said. “Now, we’re working with the Army Corps of Engineers to add this to plans for all new buildings. It costs a little more up front, but costs us less in the long run.” Solar panels come in two types: photovoltaic for electricity or thermal panels for heat and hot water, said Paul Lindemer of the garrison’s public works directorate. Roofs at ROB and Miesau Army Depot will have the former installed. It’s the first time the U.S. Army put photovoltaic panels up in such a large scale overseas. On average, the pan-


Energy from new photovoltaic panels atop warehouses at U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern will soon provide enough energy for 500 homes and save roughly $50,000 annually. The renewable energy project benefits both the U.S. military and German communities.

his year’s Combined Federal Campaign-Overseas kicks off Monday and concludes Nov. 16. The CFC-O is an annual event where service members and civilian personnel can contribute to thousands of charities that help those in need around the world. “Our goal this year is to raise $675,000 between the four groups and ensure that 100 percent contact is made to the members of Team Ramstein,” said Capt. David Milodragovich, lead CFC-O organizer. Squadrons will have their own CFC-O representatives, some with multiple delegates depending on the size of their squadron. “Those who wish to donate may do so after the campaign has officially begun through squadron representatives,” Milodragovich said. “Unit representatives will explain the donating process while making contact with personnel in their units.” The CFC-O donation process includes filling out a pledge form with the organization’s name and method of payment, along with other basic information. Methods of payment include making a monthly donation where money is automatically taken from an account, making a one-time cash donation, or paying online at http:// through eGiving, which uses a valid debit card, credit card or electronic check.

Priority three: strengthen partnerships by Col. Scott Warner 86th Civil Engineer Group commander

Editor’s note: This is article No. 3 of 5 in a series highlighting the priorities of the 86th Airlift Wing. Strengthen and leverage partnerships with Air Force, joint and international partners. The third of our wing’s priorities directs us to embrace the synergy that comes from forming dynamic partnership opportunities with our fellow Airmen within and outside our wing and with our many joint and international teammates. By uniting our strengths with the strengths of our mission partners, we leverage our individual abilities to achieve

greater results. Our goal: valued team members achieving increased effectiveness at a greater level of efficiency. Within our own wing, we have many opportunities to experience the increased effects that come with strong partnerships and effective leveraging. There are thousands of great examples, from the strong symbiotic relationship between the C-130J operators and maintainers to the Logistics Readiness Squadron Liquid Fuels Management Flight and the Civil Engineer Squadron Water and Fuels System Maintenance Shop. These relationships are the bread and butter of worldSee PRIORITY, next page

Check your attitude, then check it again Commentary

by Lt. Col. Sheri Bennington 700th Contracting Squadron commander


am a new commander here in the 86th Airlift Wing, and I learn something new every day about the great mission of this wing, its many different tenants and the many missions on our installation. The work being accomplished by so many is nothing short of amazing, and your contribution is vital to the success of the mission, no matter what your rank or position may be. With that, I want to explain a little about how I see attitudes through one of my family’s favorite movies. The Scene: The TC Williams High School football team (Alexandria, Va., 1974) is in Gettysburg for their annual summer camp. In addition to learning the normal football skills required to have a successful season, the team has to deal with adversity in the form of race integration. The team is divided and not practicing well.

The Kaiserslautern American is published by AdvantiPro GmbH, Kaiserslautern, Germany, a private firm in no way connected with the Department of the Air Force or the Department of the Army, under exclusive contract with the 86th Airlift Wing. This commercial enterprise newspaper is an authorized publication for members of the military services overseas. Contents of the KA are not necessarily the official view of, or endorsed by, the U.S. government, Department of Defense or Department of the Air Force. The appearance of advertising in this publication,

The Event: The Caucasian team captain and defensive linebacker, Gerry Bertier, calls out one of the African-American defensive players, Julius Campbell, for not doing his part as a fellow linebacker. Bertier compliments Julius on his raw talent, but then says his attitude as well as his effort was poor. His reply: “Attitude reflects leadership, captain,” he said with a sneer. The Result: (Spoiler Alert) This caused Bertier to re-evaluate his own leadership style. Soon after that exchange, the attitude of the team captain (Bertier) changed, which, in turn, causes an attitude change in the entire team. Shortly thereafter, the whole team comes together to go on to a 13-0 state-championship season. It’s a true story and a telling lesson on attitude, because truly, “attitude reflects leadership.” How does your attitude help or hurt the morale and cohesiveness of your unit? Do you come in everyday with a “let’s get it done” mentality? Or, with the weight of the world on your shoulders? Everyone has rough spots and tough times (yes, everyone, zero exceptions), but in

order to contribute positively to your unit, your family and your community, your attitude must be positive. It is the one thing you can control among the many you cannot. Said another way — only you can determine how you respond to a situation, criticism or other incidents in your life that affect your mood, disposition and attitude. Personally, I try to come in every day with a positive attitude, a good sense of humor and the ever-popular witty sarcasm. Fellow leaders and first-line supervisors, make sure your Airmen, civilians and local nationals know how important they are, and ensure you are not negatively infecting your unit by your own attitude. All others — don’t let a negative attitude hurt the morale or cohesiveness of your unit. Find ways to be a positive influence on your unit, your family and your community. A great personal motto from my commodity flight chief, Capt. Adam Vance: “Negative attitudes are cancerous and poisonous while positive attitudes are contagious and are a force multiplier.” If you are having trouble finding ways to have a good attitude, come see me. I can help.

21st TSC staff rides analyzes D-Day logistical aspect Story and photo by Mike Bowers 21st TSC Public Affairs NORMANDY, France — Analyzing logistics and its impact on the June 6, 1944, D-Day invasion from the up-close perspective on Utah and Omaha beaches and other venues in Normandy, France, was the focal point of the 21st Theater Sustainment Command’s staff ride Aug. 21 to 24. Participants, who included selected 21st TSC senior leaders and subordinate brigade command teams, dissected the complicated logistic strategy used to support the Normandy invasion in which more than 850,000 men, 148,000 vehicles and 570,000 tons of supplies came ashore within 24 days PRIORITY, from Page 2

class Air Force installations like Ramstein; leveraging a highly interoperable rapport between strong wing partners will result in spectacular wing performance. Air Force partnerships. The 86th Airlift Wing also requires strong partnerships with other Air Force partners to be the premier installation the nation needs us to be. One of the most obvious examples is the outstanding partnership between the 86th AW and the 521st Air Mobility Operations Wing. Through this strong operational bond forged between power projection platform operators and strategic airlift assets, Air Mobility Command is able to project global reach and global power through three different geographic commands: EUCOM, CENTCOM, and AFRICOM. As a result, the U.S. achieves global effects from this partnership that are unmatched by any military or civilian organization in the world. The relationship between the 86th Airlift Wing and the 435th Air Ground Operations Wing is another obvious example of our strong operational bond. As a result of their commitment, our team projects expeditionary power through unique communications and airfield capabilities. The 86th AW also maintains symbiotic relationships with Headquarters U.S. Air Forces in Europe and 3rd Air Force staff beyond those expected in a command relationship.

of the operation’s beginning. “I thought it would be nice to visit one of the most historic battles in the history of the United States that we participated in, but look at it not from the operational perspective, but from the behind-the-scenes tasks that made it successful, which really was a true logistics effort,” said Maj. Gen. Aundre F. Piggee, commanding general of the 21st TSC. “I think, in the future, we will most likely execute tasks where we will have to open a theater under fire, and we have not done that. There is a generation that doesn’t actually know how to do that,” Piggee continued. See STAFF RIDE, Page 18

By providing operational support aircraft, world-class facilities, dependable infrastructure, redundant communication paths, mission support services and quality of life programs, the wing enables the command to direct air operations in a theater spanning three continents and covering more than 19 million square miles. Joint partnerships. The central location of Ramstein between the U.S., the CENTCOM AOR and Africa make it a key location for other U.S. joint partners within the national umbrella. By maintaining stellar partnerships between us and our non-Air Force tenant partners, we capitalize on those strengths and resources that are inherent within our brethren services. The partnership between the Army’s Landstuhl Regional Medical Center and the 86th Contingency Aeromedical Staging Facility has had a monumental impact on the survival rate of wounded warriors, dramatically increasing the chances for critically wounded American service members to survive and recover from their injuries. As another example, our world-class communications personnel teams collaborate with multiple intelligence and national strategic mission partners to provide reliable, redundant communication pathways that enable the flow of data and command and control information between war-fighters worldwide.

International partnerships. Due to our geographic location, the 86th AW has the capability to build strong relationships with a large number of international partners. Our gracious host nation provides ample opportunity for leveraging our respective strengths and resources, from the tactical to the strategic level. At the tactical level, our personnel work side-byside in almost every office within the 86th AW to enable daily mission requirements. The mix between our military personnel, U.S. civilian employees, local national employees and contract personnel ensures we leverage a diverse workforce into a single mission-focused capability. At the strategic level, collaboration with other countries through our NATO partnerships and friendships in Africa has opened additional opportunities for training, development of national capabilities and increased interoperability. Our operations personnel regularly engage in flying training deployments with partner countries to increase awareness between operators and to facilitate future operations. Strengthen and leverage. One important aspect about the wing strategic priority is the focus on strengthening and leveraging partnerships, not just establishing them. The key to effective partnerships is they must be constantly cultivated and main-

tained. Having regular interactions between the partners to build trust, rapport and familiarity is crucial to the strengthening process. Additionally, the leveraging part cannot be overlooked. It is important to find that balance between partners that provides the most benefit for both sides, the classic winwin position where the output of the partnership is substantially more valuable than the efforts put into maintaining it. As one of many wing success stories, our emergency responders have a long and successful history of working with host nation partners to provide the most effective capabilities in protecting our personnel and ensuring mission continuity. Our firefighters plan and execute joint training opportunities with their counterparts in the local communities to share tips, techniques and practices so that when they are called, they can act together seamlessly and with

a high degree of interoperability. Although it takes time and resources to host and run these joint training events, the additional capability we receive under our mutual aid agreements and the interoperability that comes from touchtesting all processes in training represents an extremely valuable asset to the wing in the event of a major realworld event. As noted by American philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, “Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision … the ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.” In a time of increased financial accountability, it is crucial we strengthen the bonds that join us to our mission partners in order to reap the benefits that come from harnessing the talents and resources that everyone brings to the fight.

Panetta condemns Benghazi attack by Cheryl Pellerin American Forces Press Service WASHINGTON — Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta condemned Wednesday’s attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, in the “strongest possible terms,” a senior government official said today. “The secretary also extends his deepest sympathies to the families of the victims and to the entire State Department family,” the official said. Panetta joined President Barack Obama and Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton in condemning the attacks that killed U.S. Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens,

Foreign Service information management officer Sean Smith and two others, whose names are being withheld until State Department officials notify their families. Three other Americans were wounded in the attack. “The Department of Defense is ready to respond with additional military measures as directed by the president,” the official added. Army Gen. Carter F. Ham, commander of the U.S. Africa Command based in Stuttgart, Germany, briefed Panetta Wednesday on the situation in Benghazi, the official said. The secretary has since received regular updates. “DOD is working closely

Suicide prevention must remain paramount to every Airman and our entire community at large. Suicide prevention begins with the individual. Individuals must take care of both themselves and their fellow Airmen by building healthy relationships with each other and providing support when “life happens.” Isolation and the notion that “only the weak seek help” is a barrier to healthy living. It is a sign of courage and commitment to ask for help and face the challenges life has to offer. Here are some ways to strengthen yourself and your

MilPDS presents contingency plans during upgrade In December, the Air Force Personnel Center will execute a long-overdue and much-needed upgrade to the Military Personnel Data System. The upgrade will take approximately 23 days (probably our worst case scenario presently) during which time MilPDS will not be available. AFPC has a team of A1 and FM experts developing contingency plans to minimize impact on promotions, PCS, pay, etc., and develop work-arounds for critical transactions that must take place. The Military Personnel Flight will be hosting informational seminars at the Hercules Theater on the following dates: 2 to 4 p.m. Oct. 17 and 19 9 to 11 a.m. Oct. 25 8 to 10 a.m. Oct. 30. There will also be a finance expert on hand to answer pay questions as well. While there are many personnel actions, not all will be affected. For the purposes of this shutdown, they can roughly be broken up in the following ways: 1. Self Initiated Actions — as summarized in the chart below, affected individuals need to take these actions by the suspense dates listed. Re-enlisting during December is covered here as well. MPF has been working with those folks who need to establish their extension/re-enlistment during December. 2. MPF/AFPC Actions » PCS Orders — these will not be cut during this time period. Therefore, we have doubled our efforts in the MPF to get ahead of the December DEROSs. A critical piece of this is that Airmen are turning in their documents on time. Short notice assignments (like humanitarians or Exceptional Family Member Programs) that come up in late November or December will not be able to move in December until MilPDS is back online. » Retirement/Separations — if a member wants to apply for retirement or separation during the month of December, they won’t be able to. Dec.

1 retirement dates and separations will be unaffected since they will have orders before December. Those wanting a Jan. 1 retirement/separation should have orders from AFPC well before December as well. » Promotions/Demotions — for E2-E4/O2-O3 promotions in December and dates of rank will not update until after Dec. 23, so back pay will be retroactive as applicable. NCOs and officers (major and up) promoting on Dec. 1 will be taken care of by AFPC in November and pay will be unaffected. Demotion actions in December will have money withdrawn from pay checks retroactively to the date of the demotion in December. » Gains/Accessions — anyone arriving Dec. 1 to 23 will still attend the RIP line as scheduled, however getting them to file will not be possible until after Dec. 23. Per comptroller squadron, travel vouchers will be unaffected. 3. Unaffected Processes include: » Leave transactions (except any corresponding duty status updates will not be made in MilPDS) » Evaluation and decorations (except RIPS/ DECOR-6s ordered at the end of November through

Dec. 23 will not be processed) » ID cards will be unaffected. However, dependent changes (marriage, divorce, birth, death) in MilPDS will not be visible until after the system comes back online. » Promotion boards during that time are unaffected, but it is absolutely critical that all evals and decs closing out and that can still meet the cutoff date for an individual’s board be signed and on record in November. Airmen considering any of the following during December will need to submit the applications by the suspense dates listed below. All personnel data within the military Human Resources system will be static from the day prior to the update until completion. AFPC will provide periodic updates as we complete the dress rehearsal and testing process and prepare to execute the upgrade. If you have any questions about retention, promotion, separations, PCS or other personnel related issues, call Maj. Adam Avnet or Senior Master Sgt. Petra Sheppard at 480-5746 for assistance.

Army Reserve deputy commander visits 7th CSC Story and photo by Sgt. 1st Class Matthew Chlosta 7th CSC Public Affairs The U.S. Army Reserve Command’s deputy commanding general for operations, Army Maj. Gen. Luis R. Visot, visited 7th Civil Support Command USAR Soldiers and civilians Sept. 7 to 9, here. “Within those responsibilities I have 16 operational functional commands,” Visot said. “Seventh CSC is one of those commands. I just came here to kind of raise my awareness. I’m always looking for capabilities. What are the capabilities that units that we have in the Army Reserve provide. In this case, it is the 21st Theater Sustainment Command, U.S. Army Europe and U.S. European Command. It’s all about requirements and capabilities, whatever requirements that those higher headquarters request then we got to provide a capability.” This was Visot’s first opportunity to come out to see 7th CSC, the only USAR command headquartered in Europe, and visit with some of the command’s various units. Visot said the visit “gives me the opportunity to meet commanders (and) talk to Soldiers and see how they’re doing, because it’s kind of unique here in Europe the capabilities and the great Americans we have serving our nation. “They play a critical role because of their missions, the foreign consequence management responsibility, the civil affairs responsibility, with other capabilities,” Visot continued. Visot said he learned to focus on

one question, “Do we have the right capabilities to meet the requirements as the forces in Europe are drawing down?” He stressed that the 7th CSC plays “a critical function not just for EUCOM and USAREUR, but also for United States Army Reserve Command.” “I think we need to have a footprint in Europe because we have individuals that are working in those entities as military technicians and DA (Department of the Army) civilians, so we got to provide them an opportunity if they want to serve in uniform as a reserve Soldier, Visot said. “We’re definitely twice the citizen. Not only do we have the responsibility to wear the uniform but we also bring those important civilian acquired skills, knowledge, and an education that allows us to serve twice. We’re serving the civilian world and we’re also serving our military world.” On Friday, Visot visited wounded warriors at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center. “It’s nice to have visitors,” said Army Staff Sgt. Joshua Forbess, from the medical transient detachment, USAR. The Decatur, Ill., native and former field artilleryman survived a 2003 Blackhawk helicopter crash in Iraq. “Visits like this are appreciated more than they realize,” said Army 1st Lt. Brent Heber, a registered nurse with Company A, LRMC, after Visot spent time with two injured service members — one U.S. Soldier and one military member from the Republic of Georgia, as well as speaking with Forbess.

You can do this by focusing on the positive aspects of life and by avoiding groups or relationships that are negative. • Find activities to engage in daily that reduce stress, and don’t let stress accumulate. • Don’t avoid your problems. Manage them up front. • Adopt the belief that things can always get better. PHYSICALLY: • Get an adequate amount of sleep for physical and mental rejuvenation. • Learn about nutrition, including foods that can positively affect your energy, mood and mental status. • Take some time to exercise each day to reduce stress and help alleviate anger and anxiety. • Reduce the use of substances such as caffeine and tobacco as they can add to your stress level.

Army Maj. Gen. Luis R. Visot, deputy commanding general of operations, U.S. Army Reserve Command, U.S. Army Reserve, speaks with Army Sgt. 1st Class Yabronda Battles, a chemical operations specialist with the 773rd Civil Support Team, 7th Civil Support Command, USAR, during Visot’s visit to the unit’s training site Sept. 9 at Sembach Middle School.

On Saturday, Visot observed the 7th CSC’s annual Soldier readiness processing event, which included him presiding over an officer promotion and an award ceremony for seven 7th CSC Soldiers as various family members looked on. “It’s great,” said Army Staff Sgt. Jorge Tonge, with the Army’s 406th Human Resources Company, 7th CSC. Tonge received the Army Achievement Medal from Visot. “We served together in Iraq. I find it great he’s got contact with the troops. We need more of that.” Visot watched and interacted with the 773rd Civil Support Team, 7th CSC while they conducted a situational training exercise in conjunction with an external evaluation and certification. Every three years, U.S. Army North and NATO certify the 773rd CST

SPIRITUALLY: • Examine your core values and sense of purpose and commitment. • Identify supportive individuals in your religious community who are available for counseling and guidance. • Engage in fellowship, meditation or prayer. • Take time each day to engage in religious activities and practice each day as it builds character, SOCIALLY: • Surround yourself with supportive friends. • Find a mentor to provide personal and professional guidance. • Join a group that interests you. • Stay connected to family and friends. Even the most resilient of us can be overwhelmed with problems and life challenges. It is the responsibility of each Airman to be aware of the signs and symptoms of suicide. It is important for us to have the knowledge, courage and initiative to identify individuals who are overwhelmed and intervene. WARNING SIGNS: • Threatening or talking about wanting to hurt or

Firefighters conquer fears, learn lifesaving skills by Senior Airman Katherine Holt 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs For 12 students of the U.S. Air Forces in Europe Fire Academy, their final evaluation was a true test of personal strength and perseverance. “We were going into a constricted space with an inch of room while fully dressed in all our gear,” said Senior Airman Jodeci Mitchell, 52nd Civil Engineer Squadron firefighter out of Spangdahlem, Germany. “Going in there was stressful, but I knew I had to remain calm and patient.” The firefighters were given a two-hour time limit. Their task: rescue a trapped maintenance worker (a 50-pound instructional dummy) from a building billowing with smoke. With no time to waste, the incident commander took charge and got the team started and organized. “Being the lowest ranking firefighter with the job of the incident commander made me a little nervous,” said Airman 1st Class Christopher Hatch, 48th CES firefighter out of RAF Lakenheath, England. “But it didn’t matter who was in charge; we had a great group of guys, and it was really a team effort.” The students moved with purpose as they put together their elevated anchoring point and prepared to lower in their rescue team. In full gear, the first two-man team went in to look for their victim. After searching one floor, they came up empty handed. The second team was geared up and ready to take on the task.

gy projects several years ago, even offering government subsidies for those who install solar panels at home. Now, the U.S. Army is also pursuing costsaving efforts on overseas installations, including renewable energy efforts in the KMC. Garrison planners began the current project more than two years ago, Lindemer said. “Everybody who wants to use renewable energy is looking for space to put solar panels up on roofs,” he said. “Roofs are rare. But, we have some big roofs to offer.” The U.S. Army maintains huge warehouses. Some hold supplies and ammunition. Others are used pre-deployment or for community activities. Each one offers 36,600 square feet of roof space — enough for 900 panels. They will cover 10 roofs — six at ROB and four at Miesau — a total of roughly 366,000 square

“It was nerve racking being in there, but you have to do what you have to do,” said Senior Airman Preston Castillo, 31st CES out of Aviano, Italy. “This is something I never thought I would be doing, but I just inch-wormed my way around and took breaks when I needed to.” The second two-man rescue team found the victim, and firefighters working the belay systems on the elevated anchoring point were able to successfully bring him to safety under the set time limit. “The class did a great job,” said Staff Sgt. Winston Jerez, USAFE Fire Academy instructor. “To see them run a full operation after starting the course with only a little knowledge is what I love most about this job.” The USAFE Fire Academy, housed at the 435th

feet. That’s about the size of an IKEA store and larger than six football fields. The buildings, however, belong to Germany. So garrison planners worked through Germany’s federal real estate office to negotiate with local energy providers. Once complete, local investors earn 50 percent and the German government earns 25 percent. In turn, the U.S. Army earns 25 percent as a deduction from its energy bill. Depending on the weather, that could mean saving the Army up to $50,000 annually. The garrison also installed solar thermal panels on the Soldiers’ dining facility at Kleber Kaserne, to support the kitchen’s hot water needs, and at Wilson Barracks in Landstuhl. At Sembach Kaserne, where the garrison is renovating Soldiers’ barracks and buildings for new community services, renewable energy efforts are also planned with both thermal and photovoltaic panels for rooftops, Lindemer said. From left, Jeffrey Crisp, deputy to the garrison commander; Rainer Gruner, managing director of WVE GmBH; Alois Border, BIMA administrative affairs director; Anne Kosel, Installation Management Command-Europe; and Paul Lindemer, of the garrison’s public works directorate, install new photovoltaic panels at U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern.

Construction and Training Squadron compound, is comprised of five instructors responsible for teaching three different courses: Silver Flag, firefighter rescue and emergency medical technician. The firefighter rescue course is a 120-hour course including classroom education and practical applications consisting of water rescue awareness, technical rope rescues and confined space rescues. “The students who are chosen for this course are the cream of the crop of Air Force firefighters,” said Tech. Sgt. James Hickman, USAFE Fire Academy NCOIC. “This training is a privilege and will help these firefighters gain new skills that are fundamental for their job.” Students also used different technical rope procedures, including a controlled zip line system, rescuing victims by ascending and descending buildings using rope and pulley systems. Additionally, firefighters were educated on the National Instant Management System, a federal program that standardizes communication for emergency workers in crises “Teaching repelling and ascending is my favorite part of being an instructor,” said Staff Sgt. Sean Cantrell, USAFE Fire Academy instructor. “Getting a student to work through their fear of heights and showing them what they are capable of is such a rewarding experience.” Students reciprocated the feeling. “I conquered fears with this class,” Mitchell said. “I never thought I would be hanging from a building upside-down, but I did it. We did it. Now we are fire rescue tech certified.”

86th AES Airmen test new airframe’s capabilities Story and photo by Tech. Sgt. Chad Thompson 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Airmen from the 86th Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron tested their aeromedical evacuation capabilities on a new airframe Sept. 3 on Ramstein. The civilian Gulfstream III, or G3, provides the range and speed needed to reach different parts of Africa and Eurasia in a day, something the C-21 aircraft assigned here and some of the smaller aircraft can’t achieve without stopping to refuel. The time involved in refueling may sound like a minor issue, but when one thinks of the well-being of a patient who is being transported, every second counts. “It’s important for us to minimize the off- and on-loading of ... patients,” said Senior Airman Gabriela Perez, 86th AES aeromedical evacuation technician. “Each takeoff and landing places stress on patients, and any delays in a flight could hinder a patient’s care.” In most cases, when an aircraft stops to refuel, passengers must be off-loaded. If there are patients onboard that’s valuable time being lost. The C-17 Globemaster III and C-130 Hercules are the preferred aircraft used for aeromedical evacuation due to their range, size and patient capacity.

Members of the 86th Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron receive an aircraft safety brief Sept. 3 on Ramstein prior to a mission testing their capabilities on a new airframe. The squadron is hoping to start using the civilian Gulfstream III, or G3, aircraft for short missions to Africa and Eurasia.

Lt. Col. Paul Yenter, chief of the air evacuation control team with the 603rd Air and Space Operations Center, said if this concept works it could save a lot of time and money for the Air Force, and it will also provide the European and Africa commands with a new capability and an availability to aircraft they have not had access to in the past. Africa’s unique mission lends itself to different injuries and illnesses, some of which cannot be handled in theater. Yenter said for this reason they

have been working on increasing their capabilities. “This is something that has been in the planning phase for more than a year,” he said. “Once the waivers to fly on the G3 were complete, we only had to ensure we had proper training, and then we just wait for the right patients.” Over the course of the last few months, the AES Airmen have been conducting specialized training to prepare for this flight. They have worked long hours developing checklists on how they would handle patients on

this aircraft. Yenter said many of the checklists created were based on the C-20, a similar make and model to the G3. When configured, these aircraft will be able to carry eight ambulatory patients or, if needed, about three critical-care patients. Within a few days of approving procedures, the squadron received word of two ambulatory patients in Africa who could not be transported home by commercial means. A nine-person crew, five aeromedical personnel and four pilots flew a one-day mission to pick up these two patients, putting their training into action. “I’m very confident with the equipment and the patient care we provide during aeromedical missions,” said Col. Meg Walsh, 86th Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron commander. “The only thing we have been missing is the platform available for movement, bringing a new capability to our squadron.” The concept of aeromedical evacuation is more than 100 years old, and the theory behind it was to provide timely, efficient movement of patients and en route care. This type of evacuation has been used extensively throughout all major wars since World War II and has saved countless lives.

CRG conducts successful mission, builds Azerbaijan partnership by 2nd Lt. Kay M. Nissen 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Members of the 435th Contingency Response Group Building Partnership Capacity cell conducted their first initial operating capability mission with Azeri military forces in Azerbaijan Sept. 2 through 8. A traveling contact team of ten, consisting of 435th CRG Airmen and the USAF Europe Country Desk Officer, journeyed to Baku, Azerbaijan and led an exchange event for airfield management, airspace management, and base communication architecture to aid the Azeris in bolstering their military capability. Maj. Alfredo Laboy, 435th BPC, explained that an invitation from the Azeris was facilitated by Headquarters U.S. Air Forces in Europe through the U.S. Embassy in Azerbaijan. “It’s real neat that they have an interest in how we do things and for us to get the opportunity to conduct a mil-to-mil exchange,” said Staff Sgt. Bryan Carmean, 435th BPC. “They wanted this opportunity to work with counterparts … and this is just one way to further NATO interoperability.” In preparation for the IOC mission, 16 members of the 435th CRG completed more than 120 hours in the formal USAF Air Adviser course. Subjects covered included advising fundamentals,

interagency partnerships, interpreter support, in-country activities, strategic guidance, and cross-cultural communication, among many others. “Even the group physical training during the formal Air Advisor course was geared towards further international literacy for upcoming missions,” said Maj. Austin Burrill, 435th BPC. “We practiced soccer and studied the rules of the game to better relate to our partner nation military counterparts.” Team members were confident with Photo by Staff Sgt.

NATO brigade completes move to sembach Story and photo by Sgt. 1st Class John S. Wollaston U.S. Army NATO Brigade Public Affairs The U.S. Army NATO Brigade has completed its move to Sembach Kaserne as part of the realignment of U.S. forces in Europe. Five weeks ago, the brigade cased its colors in Schwetzingen at their change of command ceremony. Soldiers then began the task of cleaning, packing and moving the headquarters from Tompkins Barracks near Heidelberg to their new home in Sembach, the former Air Force installation turned Army post just outside of Kaiserslautern. “Although the members of the brigade will miss the relationship we had with the Schwetzingen community, we are looking for-

ward to building new friendships in Sembach and the greater Kaiserslautern community,” said brigade commander, Col. Robert S. Larsen. The building of new friendships was a sentiment echoed by the U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern commander, Lt. Col. Lars N. Zetterstrom. “USAG Kaiserslautern is very excited about the NATO brigade’s recent relocation to Kaiserslautern and specifically Sembach Kaserne,” he said. “We hope the brigade, its Soldiers and family members have a smooth transition and take advantage of everything this joint community has to offer.” The official completion of the move to Sembach will be an uncasing of the colors ceremony in front of Brigade Headquarters on Sept. 21.

LEAP program helps Airmen to do what they love by Staff Sgt. Travis Edwards 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


hat if you were told you could take your Air Force job to an exotic country and it is not in a deployed environment? What if you could take that path and continue doing what you love? A few Airmen get to do just that — all they need is to be accepted into the Learning Enabled Airman Program. According to their website, LEAP is “designed and managed by the Air Force Culture and Language Center to sustain, enhance and utilize the existing language skills and talents” of Airmen. The program’s goal is to develop

a core group of Airmen in various career fields who can use one or more foreign languages. Nearly 500 Airmen applied for the program this fall, and their submissions are being evaluated. The program typically holds two selection boards each year. The next board will be in spring 2013. “This year was the first year LEAP has accepted enlisted Airmen,” said Maj. C.C. Masotti, LEAP participant and U.S. Air Forces in Europe country desk officer for France, Portugal and Spain. “This is a great addition to the LEAP force because NCOs are a major strength of our force.” To be considered for LEAP, Airmen must show that they

have an existing foreign language capability, and that they are willing to use that capability. That ability is measured by the Defense Language Proficiency Test, the Defense Language Aptitude Battery scores and any previous foreign language exposure. “Just test. If you’re not sure if you will do well and are even a little bit curious, take the tests and see where you are,” Masotti said. “There is nothing to lose.” One advantage of the program is the potential for monetary compensation for language knowledge. LEAP participants don’t receive special pay as part of the program, but many do qualify for the Air Force’s Language Proficiency Bonus Pay.

“The biggest advantage — the opportunity to use your own love of language and cultures to the benefit of the Air Force,” Masotti said. “You get to be a part of a program that promotes the immersion and continual growth of your knowledge base in languages.” Masotti recently returned here from a week-long temporary duty assignment to Dakar, Senegal, for a conference featuring African air chiefs as a translator and transcriber. Most of the air chiefs spoke French, her strongest language. “What an experience to be in the room of 12 different air chiefs from Africa, Gen. (Mark) Welsh’s (chief of staff of the Air Force) African

equivalents, was amazing,” she said. “I got to speak to them using their language.” LEAP currently has almost 1,000 Airmen and are about to conduct another selection board, which will bring them over the 1,000 mark. With only 1,000 Airmen in LEAP, they make up only 0.3 percent of the total Air Force, making them more exclusive than Mensa in America. To apply for LEAP, go to the application page of the LEAP website, www.culture. The application window for the fall LEAP selection took place Aug. 31. Applications submitted from here on will be deferred until the next application period.

721st APS readies Airmen, cargo by Airman 1st Class Hailey Haux 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs (Editor’s note: This is the last article in a three-part series on 721st APS operations.) From processing, building and handling cargo, to ensuring passengers are taken care of with in-flight meals, pillows and blankets to keeping the lavatories cleaned and serviced; the 721st Aerial Port Squadron Airmen provide full air transportation services at Ramstein and sustains three combatant commands. The data records and reports section and readiness flight plays a vital role in keeping the Airmen of the 721st APS mission ready. The readiness flight is responsible for managing and monitoring plans

and programs; they handle all facets of unit deployment manager duties and responsibilities, said Senior Master Sgt. Rich Rizzo, 721st APS squadron operations superintendent. Some of their duties also include being the unit security managers and airfield driving program managers. “We are the unit health monitors,” said Tech. Sgt. Boyd Shurett, 721st APS NCOIC of combat readiness and resources. “We make sure everyone is up-to-date with dental work, physical fitness and any training that needs to be done.” They hold self-aid and buddy care classes, ensure all Airmen are current on their chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear training, and weapons firing as well as conduct 10 physical training sessions a week. Having a pulse on all the training

in the squadron might sound mundane but there are moments that make it worth it, said Shurett. Being the largest APS outside of the continental U.S., someone needs to keep track of all the paperwork and numbers, that’s where data records and reports comes in. Data records and reports is responsible for reconciling billing for reimbursement into AMC’s Transportation Capital Working Fund, said Rizzo. “We check entries into the system to make sure passengers and cargo are properly manifested,” said Klaus Clemens, 721st APS superintendant of records reports and analysis office. “We take all the work load numbers from each section and add them together to give to AMC headquarters.”

Keeping track of 17,000 passengers a month and 16,000 aircraft a year are just some of the things the data records and reports section is responsible for. “Outside of the states, Ramstein is the busiest aerial port,” said Clemens. “We are the anchor of Europe and the Middle East.” The many flights that make up the 721st APS all play a part in the mission. Though they are their own entity, all flights work together and each one is an essential piece to the puzzle. “With everything the 500 plus Airmen, U.S. civilians and local national personnel of the 721st APS do, they always impress me with how dedicated they are to the job and the mission,” said Lt. Col. Melvin Maxwell, 721st APS commander.

London trip inspiring, motivating for Soldiers by Ed Drohan Europe Regional Medical Command Public Affairs For 17 Warrior Transition Battalion-Europe Soldiers, a trip to London to see the Paralympic Games was a chance to have some fun and see the sights of a major tourist attraction. For the three staff members accompanying the warriors on the trip, it was much more than that — it was a chance to offer therapeutic activities in a unique way. “We want this to continue to inspire and motivate those Soldiers who engage in adaptive reconditioning — adaptive sports,” said Christopher Ebner, WTB-E occupational therapist. “The whole community reintegration process is an important aspect of this trip.” The London trip began Aug. 28 with an early morning departure from Kaiserslautern. They returned early Sept. 1. Planning for the trip began in June with an offer of tickets from the U.S. Olympic Committee’s Paralympic Military Program coordinator. Ebner said he’d worked with them in the past as they’d offered adaptive sports training opportunities for WTB-E Soldiers. The Wounded Warrior Project and the American Red Cross then came together with donations that helped fund transportation and lodging expenses. Some of the Soldiers — who came from warrior transition units across Germany — are dealing with anxiety disorders that make it difficult to be around groups of people, Ebner said. One treatment for that

is to gradually introduce the Soldier to situations in which they’re interacting with increasingly larger groups of people. In addition to attending the games at an indoor venue that houses thousands of people, the Soldiers also took a city tour to famous landmarks that draw large crowds in confined areas. Ebner said the Soldiers coped well in the situation. Another therapeutic aspect of the trip was the opportunity to increase socialization, which decreases isolation, said Jason Durr, clinical social worker for the WTB-E’s Baumholder platoon. “A lot of people with physical or mental impairments or injuries turn inward … they shut off from the rest of the world,” Durr said. “This is helping them build relationships with their fellow Soldiers who are in the same situation.” The bus ride from Germany to London took more than 11 hours by bus and ferry, giving the Soldiers a chance to get to know each other. It wasn’t long before they were sharing stories ranging from their experiences on deployment to their experiences since arriving at WTB-E. Attending the Paralympics also sends an important message to the WTB-E Soldiers, all of whom are undergoing treatment for their injuries, illnesses or wounds, said Ryan Paddock, A-Company rehabilitation therapy technician. The company is located on Kleber Kaserne. “It helps give the Soldier insight. They see people with disabilities and see what it takes to overcome them,” Paddock said. “Hopefully it sets off a spark

in the Soldier’s mind and inspires them to overcome their injury and adapt.” One such opportunity came when the Soldiers had the chance to meet and talk to members of the U.S. Women’s Sitting Volleyball Team, including former Soldier Kari Miller who has signed on to be the Army’s Warrior Games sitting volleyball coach next year. Both of Miller’s legs were amputated after a car accident 12 years ago. For one Soldier, that meeting was difficult. “I was having flashbacks and a mild panic attack when I saw the amputees,” said Sgt. George Peterson, a warrior from WTB-E’s Schweinfurt Platoon. Patterson suffers from Traumatic Brain Injury and Post Traumatic Stress since being wounded and seeing his battle buddy’s leg blown off during his third deployment to Iraq. “Then I forced myself to talk to (Miller). That really helped out. She’s a great person and she helped me get through the day.” Since the Soldiers also participate in adaptive sports as part of their rehabilitation regimen, watching the Paralympians’ performance will help them become ambassadors for adaptive sports, helping spread the word to their peers who might not have a high opinion of the rehabilitative activities. “Soldiers lead from the front,” Paddock said. “We want them to take the message back that adaptive sports did great things for me, and it will do good things for you.” (For the full story and to see pictures from the trip, visit

AF joins NATO partners in Ramstein Rover 2012 Story and photo by Senior Airman Natasha Stannard 52nd Fighter Wing Public Affairs NAMEST AIR BASE, Czech Republic — The U.S. Air Force joins 15 other nations in Ramstein Rover 2012 here until Sept. 22. RARO 12 is a NATO exercise focusing on forward air control and close air support capabilities. A-10 Thunderbolt IIs from the 81st Fighter Squadron, out of Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany, are flying throughout the exercise to provide close air support for various forward air control training missions. The purpose of the exercise is to establish standardization and interoperability for forward air control and close air support missions for nations that may work together in contingency operations. In that regard, the squadron is working with the militaries of the United Kingdom, Turkey, Slovenia, Slovakia, Poland, Norway, the Netherlands, Latvia, Italy, Greece, Germany, France, Estonia, Belgium and the Czech Republic. “It’s imperative we train with our NATO partners to establish common standards and terminology,” said Lt. Col. Clinton Eichelberger, 81st Fighter Squadron commander. “We all need to be very clear of what has to happen when putting weapons on the ground in close proximity to friendly forces.” Because A-10 squadrons often work with NATO partners in contingency operations, it’s important for them to build partnerships and create standardized tactics, techniques and procedures in a training environment, officials said. This way, they can work together to execute combatant commander’s missions seamlessly in ATTACK, from Page 5 (Air Base) and Landstuhl (Regional Medical Center) in Germany,” the official said. On Thursday, the official said, Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, placed a call to Pastor Terry Jones about a film by a U.S. producer that is insulting to the Prophet Mohammed. Jones, pastor of the fundamentalist Christian Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Fla., is known for his 2010 plan to burn Qurans, the scripture of the Islamic religion, on the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. According to news reports, he also supports the recent film.

contingency operations. The A-10s role in close air support is critical to forward air control missions because the pilots work hand-in-hand with the air controllers on the ground to identify threats and targets while mitigating risks to civilians in contingency operations, officials said. “The A-10 aircraft is a backbone to close air support operations within NATO,” said German air force Col. Harry H. Schnell, RARO 12 exercise director. “To have the A-10s on board gives me the opportunity to give the best flying asset available to train the guys on the ground. This pairing of the A-10s and the guys on the ground is what we may expect in-theater the most.” The forward air controller is also a critical link to the A-10’s close air support mission because they control where the weapons deploying from the aircraft go by telling the pilots where the targets are and determining a safe distance from which to launch their weapons. “Without forward air controllers and joint terminal attack controllers on the ground we wouldn’t be able to do what we do,” Eichelberger said. “A majority of the work we do is close air support, and close air support would not exist without communication with the ground commander. That communication piece is the forward air controller or the joint terminal attack controller.” Air controllers must be able to execute coordinates for air support immediately because enemy forces can be established as threats without any given notice. Once the threat is established, air support has to be able to support the troops on the ground without firing at friendly The film also was reported to have caused protests by angry crowds Wednesday at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo. “I can confirm that the chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Gen. Martin Dempsey, spoke by phone this morning with Pastor Jones,” the official said. “This was a brief call in which Gen. Dempsey expressed his concerns over the nature of the film, the tensions it could inflame and the violence it could cause, and he asked Mr. Jones to consider withdrawing his support for the film,” he said. Jones did listen to the chairman’s concerns but was noncommittal, the official said.

Members of German and Czech Republic air forces discuss the forward air control training scenario they are about to execute during Ramstein Rover 2012 at Namest Air Base, Czech Republic, Tuesday. During this scenario, German forward air controllers, who are based out of Baumholder, Germany, communicated with Czech Republic helicopter pilots to establish targets for the ground commander while mitigating risks to civilians and civilian assets.

forces or civilians. The training at RARO 12 helps both air controllers and pilots establish procedures and share techniques that will mitigate risks to nontargets. “The greatest benefit of this exer-

cise is to send JTAC and FAC teams to the theater and know that they are all working on the same foundation — using the same procedures, sharing knowledge of equipment and knowledge of what air assets are capable of,” said Schnell.

Page 18 STAFF RIDE, from Page 3 “So, I thought it was important for us, as the future senior logisticians of the military, to look at a battle where logistics was extremely important that led to success and how we can learn from those lessons and be prepared when we are asked to execute similar operations in the future.” The training objectives for the staff ride were to analyze the D-Day sustainment

Kaiserslautern American plan from staging to execution, describe challenges of command and control during expeditionary sustainment operations, and assess port and theater opening operations and exterior sustainment lines of communication during combat operations. Visits to Port en Bessin (petroleum port), Pointe du Hoc, Utah Beach Museum and the Normandy American Cemetery were part of the agenda. The 21st TSC chap-

lain conducted a short memorial service in the cemetery’s chapel that was followed by a dual flag-lowering ceremony. Presentations by the staff highlighted various D-Day logistical insights and how Normandy was one of the most complicated and largest operations ever attempted with a continuous process of initiatives and experimentation. The 21st can trace its logistical roots to World War II,

September 14, 2012 when the buildup and stockpiling of supplies resulted in the formation of the Communications Zone in May 1944. By V-E Day in May 1945, U.S. Army Communications Zone, Europe, had furnished more than 21 million tons of supplies to 61 combat divisions. Although the 21st TSC’s sustainment mission continues today, the command also oversees a military police and engineer brigade, in addition

to having duties previously fulfilled by the 1st Personnel Command. “It’s building a team, building trust and confidence among all members of the team,” said Piggee about one of his staff ride’s main objectives. “We have people on our team who don’t know everybody on our staff and other brigades because we are so diverse with multiple career fields and because we are spread all over Europe.”

21st TSC selects culinary Soldier/NCO of the Year by Mike Bowers 21st TSC Public Affairs An engineer and military police food service specialist have claimed honors in the 21st Theater Sustainment Command’s Culinary Soldier and Noncommissioned Officer of the Year competition. Spc. Lawrence Lancaster, 18th Engineer Brigade, earned top culinary Soldier honors, while Sgt. Dana Davis, 18th Military Police Brigade, was named best culinary NCO and overall winner in the competition. The event began with weapons qualification from Aug. 16 to 17 and ended Sept. 5 to 6 with a 12-mile road march, comprehensive board, 500-word essay and cook-off in the Clock Tower Dining Facility on Kleber Kaserne. During the cook-off, each of the seven competitors, representing the command’s three brigades and headquarters, was given the standard Army biscuit recipe. Even though the recipe card called for 100 servings, participants were required to recalculate and convert the recipe card to 25 servings. “We asked them to go above and beyond and get a little creative … maybe a cheese, walnut or raisin biscuit,” said Master Sgt. Mark A. Mansfield, 21st TSC chief food operations sergeant and Las Vegas native. The biscuit cooking was timed, so there was additional pressure. Davis was uncertain about her batch. “That was my first time doing biscuits,” said Davis, a native of Corpus Christi, Texas, whose job focus is now food service administration. “I was just hoping they came out right.” “I believe trying to convert from 100 (portions) to just 25 was the most difficult.

Lancaster was surprised he placed so high, especially since his specialty is meats. “Meats is where I’ve been ever since I’ve been in the kitchen,” said Lancaster, a Washington native. “It was hard, but at the same time, I wanted to see if I was able to do it to completion. My advantage was more than likely the ruck march … I lasted to the end and was the first to finish.” Both Soldiers will next compete at the U.S. Army

Europe Culinary Soldier/NCO of the Year competition scheduled to begin Sept. 20 at the Wiesbaden Army Airfield. “They’ll definitely need to know how to convert recipe cards, how to knead, mix, how to weigh and measure products and have familiarity with various kitchen equipment,” said Mansfield. “The competition is about injecting enthusiasm and pride into the Army’s food service tradition.” (Spc.

The biggest culinary hike in the Westpfalz will lead walkers on mostly paved trails to eight stations, where they can taste culinary specialties and wines. The 6 kilometer, stroller friendly route will be available at 1 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. Sunday. “Several thousands of visitors in the last years prove that the hike is of high quality and belongs meanwhile to our annual calendar of events,” said Anja Pfeiffer, the mayor of the Weilerbach Union Community.

Sweet delicacies include rusty knights with

vanilla sauce, dishes made of flour and poppy seed, and cakes. Regional vintners will serve a variety of wines and prosecco. Participants have the option to buy a wine pass for €5. They will get a little glass to taste wines at the price of €1 at each wine station. The passes can be obtained at the two information stands. During the hike, children can jump on a bouncy castle and get their faces painted. Couples can also ask for romantic wagon rides. A traditional Palatinate Night with live music will start at 7 p.m. Saturday at Station No. 8. “Our fourth culinary hike offers nice scenic views combined with fine food specialties,” said Rodenbach’s mayor, Georg Reuss. “I wish everybody some nice hours to relax and a lot of fun.” Participants can park their vehicles on two big parking lots in the Industriegebiet Nord (industrial area between Vogelweh and Weilerbach, along state road L367) and start their route here following the signs.
