Ramstein honors US Embassy members by Airman 1st Class Hailey Haux 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs The roar from a C-17 Globemaster III’s engines grew ever louder as it approached Ramstein under the cover of darkness Sept. 12. The aircraft carried the

bodies of the four staff members who died during an attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Airmen from the 86th Airlift Wing and 521st Air Mobility Operations Wing assisted in the dignified transfer of the remains, including those of U.S. Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens,

to the U.S. Sept. 12 to 14. Ramstein community members and other ranking officials stood silent on the flightline as Airmen from the 721st Aerial Port Squadron performed the dignified transfer of the four fallen members. “Every time we perform a dignified transfer there is

a quiet professionalism that befalls us. Each member understands (that) the duty we perform to return the fallen is both emotionally and spiritually taxing,” said Tech. Sgt. Joseph Connolly, 721st Aerial Port Squadron NCOIC of ramp services operations and volunteer for the transfer. “It is an honor, and my team

President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, former Secretary of State Colin Powell, and Senators John Kerry and John McCain were among the dignitaries present. Hundreds of State Department

Priority four: provide exceptional quality of life for KMC by Col. Mike Monson 86th Mission Support Group commander

Commentary

Editor’s note: This is article No. 4 of 5 in a series highlighting the priorities of the 86th Airlift Wing. We’ve all heard the phrase, “If Momma ain’t happy, nobody’s happy.” Put another way, trouble on the homefront or family struggles often directly impact the ability of the Airman or Soldier to focus on their job. If you remember back to your high school psychology class, Abraham Maslow developed his “hierarchy of needs” theory, which held that unless basic physiological, safety and belonging needs are met first, it is difficult for people to achieve full self-actualization. That is, in the absence of food, shelter, safety and social/familial connections, people may never achieve their full potential of being creative, confident and moral members of society (or productive Airmen and Soldiers for that matter). So, what does all that mean for me, my family or my unit, you ask? It means that in order to operate at a high level of technical skill, energy and professionalism, leaders must seek to create homes, work and play environments for their troops that satisfy their basic human needs with robust support programs. And this is why the 86th Airlift Wing has made providing exceptional quality of life for the entire KMC one of its top five priorities. Our nation’s most precious resources, the men and women who have volunteered to serve their country and defend its Constitution in a time of war, deserve nothing less than excep-

tional, world-class quality of life and community support. They have answered our nation’s call, and we owe it to them and their families to ensure the KMC is a great place to live. The good news is that the KMC is already a pretty good place to live, but we know we can always be better. While there are many aspects that constitute “quality of life,” the 86th AW leadership team will focus primarily on two areas: first, ensuring an effective off-base housing process, and second, providing robust community support for families and single Airmen and Soldiers. With the goal of increasing customer satisfaction with the off-base housing process, the 86th

Civil Engineer Group is leading working groups aimed at reducing housing office wait times, educating inbound families on the constrained off-base housing situation, partnering with the off-base landlords and building a seamless operation between the housing referral process and the furnishings management operation. To ensure robust community support programs, the 86th Mission Support Group is leading working groups to improve access to child care and youth programs both on and off base. The groups are working closely with their Army Morale, Welfare and Recreation See PRIORITY, next page

With our focused improvement efforts through the 86th AW’s strategic plan, we’ll continue to ensure the KMC is not just the biggest concentration of Americans living outside the continental U.S., but that it is also the most envied group of Americans due to our exceptional quality of life. The end result is a community of professionals and closely bound families who are operationally ready to provide combat airlift anytime, anywhere and operate the Air Force’s premier installation to enable and assure strategic capabilities in support of our national defense and of our allied partners’ national defense.

both former Navy SEALs serving in protective security roles at the consulate. The U.S. Air Force Honor Guard and Band were part of the ceremonial contingent welcoming these Americans home for the final time. Service members from all branches of the Department of Defense were represented in the Joint Color Guard that presented final honors before Clinton took to the podium. “This has been a difficult week for the State Department and for our country,” she said in her remarks. “We’ve seen the heavy assault on our post in Benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with. It is hard for the American people to make sense of that because it is senseless, and it is totally unacceptable. “There will be more difficult days ahead, but it is important that we don’t lose sight of the fundamental fact that America must keep leading the world,” she continued. “We owe it to those four men to continue the long, hard work of diplomacy. I am enormously proud of the men and women of the State Department. I’m proud of all those across our government, civilian and military alike, who represent America abroad. They help make the United States the greatest force for peace, progress and human dignity the world has ever known. If the last few days teach us anything, let it be this: That this work, and the men and women who risk their lives to do it, are at the heart of what makes America great and good.” Obama then addressed the crowd, providing background on each of the four Americans, and offering his sympathy to the families they left behind, including mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, wives and children. “To you, their families and colleagues, to all Americans, know this: Their sacrifice will never be forgotten,” the president said. “We will bring to justice those who took them from us. We will stand fast against the violence on our diplomatic missions. We will continue to do everything in our power to protect Americans serving overseas. Whether that means increasing security at our diplomatic posts, working with host countries on obligations to provide security, and making it clear that justice will come to those who harm Americans. “Most of all, even in our grief, we will be resolute,” he continued. “We are Americans and we hold our head high. Knowing that because of these patriots, because of you, this country that we love will always shine as a light onto the world. “‘Greater love hath no man than this: That a man laid down his life for his friends.’ The flag they served under now carries them home,” Obama said. “May God bless the memories of these men who laid down their lives for us all. May God watch over your families and all who loved them. And may God bless these United States of America.”

USAFE Firefighter Combat Challenge creates camaraderie by Airman 1st Class Hailey Haux 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

T

he 2012 U.S. Air Forces in Europe Firefighter Combat Challenge took place Sept. 15 at the USAFE Fire Academy on Ramstein. To win the challenge, participants had to complete several events with the fastest time. Each event simulated exactly what firefighters do in real life. “Teamwork is huge for the tandem and team portions,” said Staff Sgt. Justin King, 886th Civil Engineer Squadron crew chief and combat challenge participant. “You will see everyone out here cheering their teammates on throughout the whole competition, and that helps a lot.” The first event was a five-story stairwell sprint. Participants had to climb a three-story tower while carrying a hose, said Tech. Sgt. James Hickman, Fire Academy NCOIC and coordinator for this year’s combat challenge. “When competitors get to the top of the tower they must place the pack in a specific location,” he said. Once at the top of the tower, the competitors started the second event — a hose hoist. They had to carry a donut roll of hose to the top and place it in a specified area. After that was done, participants climbed down the tower, ensuring every step was touched. “Forcible entry is the third event. The Keiser Force Machine is utilized to simulate a forcible entry by hitting a mallet against a sled, driving it along a steel beam,” Hickman said. Competitors then dragged a water-filled fire hose 75 feet and shot the water at a target. “The last event is the victim rescue. Participants drag a 175-pound mannequin backward 106 feet,” Hickman said. “The time then stops when the com-

petitor and the mannequin completely cross the finish line.” The challenge could be done individually, in a team of two or as a team of five, and there were trophies for each section. King won the individual competition with a time of one minute, 45 seconds. King and his partner, Tech. Sgt. Phillip Washburn, 886th CES district chief and event participant won with a finish time of one minute, 27 seconds.

Team KMC won the team competition with a time of one minute, 24 seconds and will go on to compete in the world competition. Even while competing against people from other countries, there was a sense of brotherhood and camaraderie, Hickman said. “Everyone is always helping each other,” he said. “It doesn’t matter if you are on a different team, we are always sharing strategies. I would do anything for any one of these guys.”

Sembach Air Base veterans return to visit KMC by Mark Heeter U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern Public Affairs Four veterans who served on Sembach Air Base, including one who was in the advance group in 1952 that created the original installation, returned to the KMC for a trip down memory lane Sept. 12 and 13. “It’s good to come here and see that it’s become so vibrant,” said retired Air Force Lt. Col. Ed Albert, vice president of the Sembach Air Base Veterans’ Organization and primary planner of the visit. Lt. Col. Lars Zetterstrom, U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern commander, and Col. Brian Bisacre, 18th Military Police Brigade commander, hosted the group for a visit and a tour of Sembach Kaserne Sept. 12. “These facilities are being beautifully revitalized,” Zetterstrom said, explaining some of the many projects that have recently been completed or are being renovated for the expected influx of people

who will work on Sembach under U.S. Army Europe transformation plans. Zetterstrom and Bisacre, along with many friends from the days of Sembach Air Base, joined the veterans for dinner that evening. “I truly love Sembach. While my duty here was often hard, both myself and my wife came to feel this was the best assignment I ever had in the Air Force. So, coming back, especially with other veterans, was very meaningful,” Albert wrote in an email response to questions after the visit. The following day, the veterans got to see their modern Air Force in action with a tour of Ramstein Air Base and mission briefing by the 1st Combat Communications Squadron. “We had more than 150 years of military service among the veterans, so every once in a while, we should definitely be able to do that,” said Kilian Blümlein, who works for the 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Office and provided the guided tour of the base for the veterans’ group.

no longer involved with sports at the college level. Here’s the interesting thing. Despite the pedestal upon which America places college football, what Tressel did for a living is nowhere near as critical as what each and every military member and Department of Defense civilian employee does for the U.S. We defend our nation via hundreds of different ways, but no matter what the job, it all ties back to the defense of our nation. While integrity may be a nice thing to have when coaching college football, it is vital in terms of national defense. A breach in just one person’s integrity can have deadly effects at the tactical level. I want to use an example at the strategic level of the cost to the U.S. when one person sells out. In 2003, the Air Force was desperately in need of a new tanker aircraft to replace aging KC-135 Stratotankers. In charge of negotiating for new tankers was the principle deputy undersecretary of the Air Force for acquisitions, Darleen Druyun. Druyun, while simultaneously negotiating a new job with Boeing, created a deal to lease Boeing KC-767 Tankers for $260 million per aircraft. However, the cost outright of one of the 767s was $150 billion. Druyun’s plan almost cost taxpayers $110 million more per airplane, and we never would have owned the aircraft. When discovered, Druyun was fired, pleaded guilty and served nine months in prison. Boeing’s chief executive officer and chief financial officer were likewise fired and Boeing was fined $615 million. However, the ultimate tragedy for the Air Force occurred nine years later — today. We still do not have a single new tanker aircraft to replace the KC-135 and will not until 2017 — mostly due to one person’s lack of integrity. The other issue with integrity is that once it’s gone, it’s hard to get back. Druyun was never given a chance to regain her integrity, nor should she. Even breaches of integrity with minor results are hard to forget; it can take years to earn back a reputation of trust and high integrity. Once you sell out, people remember and will always question if you will “do the right thing,” especially in tough situations — situations common to all of us who serve. To close, I want to quote former Chief of Staff of the Air Force Gen. Ronald Fogleman on integrity of military members: “The tools of our trade are lethal, and we engage in operations that involve risk to human life and untold national treasures. Because of what we do, our standards must be higher than those of society at large. The American public expects it of us and properly so. In the end, we earn the respect of the American people because of the integrity that we demonstrate.” While this is an incredible quote on integrity and military service, I focus on it because of the man who stated it. Fogleman’s integrity was put on the line at the highest levels of the military, and he chose the high road. I’ll leave it to each of you to research the details behind his early resignation and learn about a man who stood behind his words. All of us are put in situations where our integrity is on the line — the defense of our nation demands we too take the high road.

lock captains and area coordinators are what make neighborhood watches run smoothly. They are responsible for disseminating information to residents in the areas they’re responsible for, making a schedule for the neighborhood watch and keeping others informed. Block captains and area coordinators are trained through the 86th Security Forces Squadron and the 569th U.S. Forces Police Squadron. “There are two training sessions: one for anyone willing to join the neighborhood watch and a separate training for those who want to be area coordinators or block captains,” said Tech. Sgt. Gregory Stanley, NCOIC of police services. “Training lasts no longer than two hours, and in the training we provide information on how to identify suspicious behavior, how

to report it and how to set up their block schedule.” If you are interested in joining the neighborhood watch, contact the Ramstein Housing Office here and you will receive an invitation through email to begin training. “You can go into the housing office and let them know you want to join the neighborhood watch,” said Tech. Sgt. Tyrona Lawson, a block captain in Ramstein housing. “There, they look to see if positions are available and assign responsibility accordingly.” After the training, block captains can go to security forces members if they have any questions. “The area coordinators and block captains own their individual program,” Stanley said. “We’re still here for them if they need advice, but after they leave the training, it becomes their own.” The opportunity to become a block captain gives members of the community the chance to give back. “I wanted to make sure the

neighborhood is safe for my daughter to go out and play with other children,” Lawson said. “I think it’s important for neighbors to know each other and help out with their children.” For details, contact the Ramstein Security Forces Squadron at 480-1215 or 06371-47-2050, or Vogelweh Security Forces at 4897501 or 0631-536-7501.

by 7th Civil Support Command Public Affairs he U.S. Army Reserve’s only Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear response unit, the 773rd Civil Support Team, passed its CBRN external evaluation conducted by U.S. Army North Sept. 15. Prior to the evaluation, the 7th Civil Support Command’s 773rd CST went through an intense 10-day training period in the run-up to the final evaluation. The ARNORTH mobile training team traveled to Germany from the U.S. to conduct the training and evaluation. During the pre-evaluation timeframe, eight ARNORTH observer/controller-trainers mentored the unit’s Soldiers. “Everyone is trained on the equipment,” said Capt. Jason Zdunich, 773rd CST operations officer. “Areas that are a focus during the train-up to the external evaluation are familiarization with the equipment, communications and analytical analysis of the site. We have to figure out if it is biological or chemical. “ARNORTH conducts the external evaluation according to U.S. Army doctrine every 18 months,” he continued. “The 773rd (CST) experienced a 50 percent turnover in personnel two months ago,” said Lt. Col. Leslie Dillard, 773rd Civil Support

Team commander. “As Soldiers PCS in and out and the unit reaches a certain turnover rate, we have to be evaluated to make sure we can do the mission,” Zdunich said, “just like other units have to do mission readiness exercises.” The 773rd CST’s mission is to support European and Africa commands in response to a CBRN incident. If the unit is sent to a suspected site, they would identify CBRN agents/substances; assess current and projected consequences before, during and after an incident; advise the on-site incident commander on response measures; and assist with appropriate requests for support.

During the external evaluation’s culminating event on Sept. 15, the observer/controllertrainers became observer/controllers only and then graded the unit on their CBRN response and tasks. “Personnel and equipment change all the time,” said 1st Sgt. Jeremy Mann, 773rd CST NCOIC. “They come in and see what the Soldiers have learned and train our new Soldiers on equipment changes and CBRN procedures.” The 773rd CST recently received new vehicles and CBRN equipment, including a mobile lab to detect pathogens. “The fact that we exceeded the standards and expectations is a testament to the dedication of all 773rd Soldiers and their families,” Dillard said. “I told them failure is not an option, and they responded. I am very proud of their performance.” The U.S. Army progressive readiness cycle requires that the 773rd CST maintain itself as a ready and deployable unit 24/7, Zdunich said. “This unit is on call 24 hours a day,” Mann said. “The ex-eval (external evaluation) tested our ability and flexibility to work these off hours. In the future, when first responders go into an unknown situation and realize they have something bigger than they can deal with, they call for support. We are that support.”

Knowledge ops keep customers focused on mission by Staff Sgt. Travis Edwards 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Some knew them as information managers, some client support administrators. But they are the knowledge operations managers, here to keep you focused on the mission. “I’m not going to say that the mission would stop without us, but the mission would certainly be hindered,” said Tech. Sgt. Brandon Johnson, 86th Airlift Wing Knowledge Operations section chief. “We need our customers to be focused on the mission.

They can’t be focused on the mission if computer and data problems keep coming up.” Ensuring current computer configurations are up-to-date and working and troubleshooting problems are just the tip of the iceberg. Knowledge Operations managers are here to make daily life look seamless to the customer, whether the commander of a group or wing, or an Airman in the wing staff agency who’s printer just won’t work. “We’re here for our customers and we take care of them. Whether it is the general and his staff or any of the (wing staff agency) chiefs

that fall under us,” Johnson said. “That’s my main mission right now — to make sure they are all taken care of.” But to take care of their customers, they first take care of each other. It’s something they feel is important to maintain a positive work environment. Knowledge Operations is subdivided into three different categories under the 3D0 career field. X1s are knowledge ops managers, X2s are cyber systems managers and X3s are cyber surety managers. They all work hand in hand with each other to accomplish the hundreds of

daily tasks. “We keep each other grounded and look out for each other,” said Staff Sgt. Jennifer Anderson, 86th AW Knowledge Operations manager who specializes in cyber systems. “There’s a lot of teamwork that happens behind these walls.” “Some of the stuff that she might have to put off for a more important task, I can pick up,” said Staff Sgt. Anitrea Bryan, 86th AW Knowledge Operations manager. “That’s how we overcome; we use each other’s strengths the best way possible so the mission gets complete.”

Some consider CCK the jack of all trades since a majority of additional duties also lay in their laps. The 86th AW CCK shop has about 21 different additional duties divided between the three NCOs. “It’s not hard, but it isn’t easy,” Bryan said. “All the small things add up and can end up taking most, if not all, of the day to complete.” With the wing’s vision and priorities in mind, these operators of knowledge-based systems keep the customers up and operationally ready so they can continue to focus on the mission.

Multinational medical Soldiers strive for elite badge Story and photo by Army Capt. Daniëlle Hamer 30th MEDCOM Reserve Public Affairs GRAFENWÖHR, Germany — Nerves and excitement rippled through the air here this week as multinational medical Soldiers from across Europe prepared to pass the tests for the prestigious Expert Field Medical Badge. Those who earn the badge must complete a 12-mile ruck march, a written test, day and night land navigation, and three combat testing lanes that include basic combat scenarios as well as medical combat operations. Soldiers had just five days to familiarize themselves with what they will face Sunday, when the rigorous 120-hour testing phase begins. With only an average 15 to 20 percent success rate, there is reason to be nervous, but the candidates are training and practicing hard to improve those statistics. Sgt. Andrea Gray, a 212th Combat Support Hospital medic, said she is most worried about the land navigation portion of the test, but she and some of her fellow Soldiers have practiced on the course in Landstuhl both day and night. Land navigation is the same section that eliminated Spc. Travaughn Jacobs, an 8th Medical Logistics Company optical laboratory specialist, last year. Jacobs is back for his second attempt and said he feels confident. “We’ve been doing ruck marches and studying the test material at my home station in Miseau, and out here me and some others from the group have gotten together to study everything,” he said. The cadre is also taking time to ensure the candidates prepare and have the best resources. “We have mandatory study hall scheduled until 2000 every day, but often the instructors stay after as late as 2300. They bring training aids and that is really helpful for the Soldiers,” said 1st Lt. William Brant, an officer from the 2nd Cavalry Regiment,

the unit that is hosting the event this year. “It’s a lot of information. A whole whole lot,” Gray said of the instruction they receive during this standardization phase. Due to potential language barriers, different military methods and just being new to a group, Gray said she tries to include the multinational Soldiers in her platoon as much as possible. “We have some Estonian soldiers, so whatever information we have, we offer to them,” she said. “Sometimes they don’t ask questions, but you know someone else is thinking the same thing, so we bring it up.” Sgt. 1st Class Richard Stickels, cadre with 2nd Cavalry Regiment who earned his EFMB 17 years ago as a private first class, said the process of EFMB has changed over the years. “It used to be that we would do all the evacuation tasks in one lane, our medical tasks in one lane, our

warrior tasks in one lane. Now we’re spreading the missions out to make it more of a combat scenario,” Stickels said. The candidates start in one lane with a combat event where they have to react to an enemy situation, such as a rocket attack or an enemy firing on them. The candidates have to take cover, return fire, and perhaps react to a chemical condition or operate a radio to make a detailed report of the situation. Then they make their way through a series of obstacles, after which they may come upon a vehicle with a casualty. They treat the casualty and evacuate, the whole time being timed and tested on proficiency. Soldiers who pass all the events and manage to cross the finish line after the 12-mile ruck march in time, will receive their coveted EFMB shortly afterward during a ceremony, which takes place here today.

Baumholder clinic adjusts to transformation with new Soldier-centered care by Stefan Alford Landstuhl Regional Medical Center Public Affairs BAUMHOLDER, Germany — While the military population around Baumholder is decreasing with the deactivation of the 170th Infantry Brigade Combat Team Oct. 9 and the continuing relocation of its remaining troops, the Baumholder Army Health Clinic is actually gearing up to start seeing more patients as a result of the transformation. The incongruity is due to a cultural shift in access to care, which changes the way incoming Soldiers are seen for health care services. The new program is being spearheaded by the clinic’s recently arrived commander. “The Army teaches us not to make any major changes within 90 days of taking command, but we don’t have a choice as events are driving us to adopt the new Soldier Centered Medical Home concept ahead of most,” said Lt. Col. (Dr.) Edward Bailey, who assumed command of the clinic June 29. The Army is still in the initial stages of implementing the SCMH model across its military treatment facilities. Previously, the 170th IBCT had its own brigade surgeon, and its subordinate units had their own battalion aid stations to take care of their Soldiers’ basic health care needs. Over the course of the next fiscal year, however, a number of smaller units without self-contained medical capability will be repositioned at Baumholder and those troops will be enrolled into the clinic’s Soldiercentered program. “The benefits are that it will allow us to have one standard (for the installation) and to provide all medical care under one roof,” said Bailey, explaining the comprehensive coverage for Soldiers is similar to the Patient Centered Medical Home program where each patient is partnered with a team of health care providers — physicians, nurses, behavioral health professionals, pharmacists and others —

to develop an encompassing, personal health care plan. The health care team then works with each Soldier over time to take care of health issues as they arise, ensure delivery of prevention screening and services, manage chronic conditions, and promote a spirit of health, wellness and trust. “The same providers who see the Soldier’s family members, will now see the Soldiers as well,” added Bailey, explaining the continuity of care will make it easier to correlate certain health issues or illnesses within the family and offer better overall preventive medicine care. The enrollment of all incoming Soldiers is a major change to clinic operations for Bailey and his staff of approximately 100 military, Army civilian and local national employees — but it’s not the only new program he’s brought online. The new commander, a former combat medic prior to being commissioned in 1993, also oversaw the implementation of a secure messaging system at the clinic at the end of July. The clinic’s 7,000-plus beneficiaries, including retirees, can now consult with their medical team via email about non-urgent health matters, to request appointments and referrals, renew prescriptions, and receive test and laboratory results. To sign up for the encrypted, secure messaging service through the contracted Relay Health system, beneficiaries provide their personal email address to their primary care clinic and will then receive an email invitation to join the service. So, while there have been some changes within those first 90 days of Bailey’s command, he views the new initiatives as “opportunities toward full integration.” The bottom line, he said, is that “we’ll continue to offer the same quality care for our beneficiaries during this period of transformation.”

Airman Frank Molina talks to members of the KMC First Four during their monthly membership meeting at the Ramstein Enlisted Club. After his speech, Molina was elected vice president.

We are the First Four by Airman Frank Molina KMC First Four vice president The KMC First Four is a private organization within the KMC. This organization is a committee of junior enlisted Airmen, ranging from E-1 to E-4, from all branches of the U.S. military. Members of the First Four look for ways to improve the community and develop junior enlisted not only as professionals, but as leaders. The organization was established in 2003 and grew slowly at first with only 45 members. Due to hard work and dedication, this private organization has grown to more than 600 members over the past few years and continues to increase in size. Current president Airman 1st Class Zachary Bach, former vice president Senior Airman Juliette White, and other council members have done a phenomenal job running the First Four and developing other Airmen. During monthly meetings, the First Four provides a positive environment, allowing members to target issues affecting junior enlisted members on base and in the dormitories. Furthermore, the First Four is the voice for all E-4s and below. “I got involved in the First Four because I saw it was a great opportunity to help other people and develop them as a professional,” White said. “The First Four is a great way to meet more people and network.” To help assist in the professional development, there are guest speakers who inform Airmen of professional development seminars and other growth, health and educational opportunities. Guest speakers include top senior enlisted officers and civilian members from their respective fields. Financial advisers, as well as representatives from the education office, chiefs’ panel, Ramstein Airman & Family Readiness Center and other organizations have also been to the meetings. Most meetings have a KMC 5/6 and a KMC Top III representative in attendance to help spread the word about issues affecting Airmen and to give insight on the various topics. The KMC First Four also provides an avenue for Airmen and other junior enlisted members to get involved in multiple organizations and various volunteer opportunities. Everyone has something unique to bring to the table, no matter what their personal interests are. The organization creates opportunities for members to give back in a way that is both beneficial to them and to the community. Members are constantly giving Airmen the opportunity to gain valuable leadership experience by taking on the responsibilities of being a point of contact or an organizer for an event. Bach, the First Four president, and various other council members brief the First Term Airman’s Center here to introduce the First Four to new arrivals from technical school. However, there are still Airmen who do not know about this organization. If you are a junior enlisted member or know a junior enlisted member from any branch of the U.S. military who would like to get involved in the community and wants to become more of a developed professional, you’re invited to attend one of the monthly meetings. The First Four meets at 3:30 p.m. the first Wednesday of every month in Martini’s Lounge at the Ramstein Enlisted Club. Yearly membership fees are $5. Sign up as a member at the monthly meetings, or email KMC1stfour/council@ ramstein.af.mil.

Air Traffic Control: You’re on their radar Story and photo by Airman 1st Class Hailey Haux 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Ramstein tower, this is Ironhide 19. Two A-10s, one-zero miles north of Ramstein, inbound for visual to runway two-six, full stop. Every day, thousands of aircraft take off and land anywhere and everywhere in the world. The mission of an air traffic controller is to provide safe and expeditious air traffic flow by separating aircraft, issuing safety alerts and by giving pilots a clear and precise picture of what is in the airspace near them. “Radar air traffic controllers keep the steady flow of air traffic into and out of military airfields by tracking aircraft on radar screens and providing pilots with voice instructions by radio,” said Staff Sgt. Danielle Naja, 86th Operations Support Squadron air traffic control watch supervisor. Along with knowing the different call signs and radio equipment, air traffic controllers need to know weather reports, the aircraft’s speed, its direction and its altitude. Additionally, they must be able to give pilots safety information, landing instructions and identify aircraft positions on the radar equipment. There are two aspects to air traffic control: tower and radar. “Radar is responsible for approximately 20 miles of air space,” she said. “The tower here takes care of everything within about seven miles of the runway.” Performing air traffic control can be stressful. Add in being in a foreign country, and that makes things even harder. “It was difficult for me at first to understand the German controllers with the accents,” said Naja, a Houston native. “After working and listening to them, their accents got easier to understand.” Working as a team and keeping accountability helps with the everyday stresses of being an air traffic controller. “We have the tower team concept,” said Airman 1st Class Fredrick Leary, 86th OSS air traffic controller. “No one person will ever be responsible for

everything. There are other Airmen who back you up and help you out in the tower.” Supporting approximately 40,000 operations and more than 500 distinguished visitor movements a year, the Airmen of the 86th OSS are always training. “The technical school to become an air traffic controller is 72 class days,” Leary said. “Once we get to our first assignment, we are in upgrade training for another six months to a year and a half.” When air traffic controllers PCS they have to be trained and recertified on the new base’s systems and airspace configuration, which is where simulators come in. Both radar and tower sections have simulators that cater to their requirements. Whether a computer screen to simulate a radar “scope” or a 360-degree view from the tower of the airfield and surrounding airspace, newcomers have something to train on.

“The simulator helps tremendously because new people come in and can be nervous or uncomfortable in new conditions. The simulator allows controllers to develop those initial skills necessary to facilitate local air traffic,” Leary said. The radar team is in the process of implementing a new radar system to increase efficiency of their everyday processes. The new system is called the Standard Terminal Automation Replacement System. This new system helps radar air traffic controllers more effectively track the location of all aircraft in the surrounding airspace. “The STARS equipment has more capabilities than the old system, allowing us to be more effective and efficient with our work,” Naja said. The older system air traffic controllers currently work with what was manufactured in the ’50s and ’60s and though it works, it’s essential to keep up with the technology of the 21st century, Naja said. “With the old system we would have to type in a long command to find particular information, but with the new system all that needs to be done is click a button and we have all the information,” Naja said. “It’s a huge relief to be getting the STARS.” Even while facing the many challenges in air traffic control, including severe weather conditions, older equipment, complex traffic situations and special pilot requests, the controllers work as a team to keep everything running smoothly. “We sometimes have to think quickly, and it can be a matter of life or death,” Leary said. “Knowing that I have other controllers to back me up and help me out means a great deal.” At the end of the day, air traffic controllers do their part to help with the Air Force mission. “This is a very fulfilling job,” said Senior Airman Jeremii Van Komen, 86th OSS air traffic controller. “I feel like it’s important and that what I do immediately affects the mission.” Ironhide19, Ramstein tower.

Ramstein Optometry Clinic: Here’s looking at you by Airman 1st Class Trevor Rhynes 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Which looks better? One, or two. This is a question asked to many of the patients who visit the Ramstein Optometry Clinic. “We see an average of 50 patients a day,” said Lt. Col. Judy Rattan, optometry flight commander. “Everyone from 5 years old and up can be seen by one of our four doctors any day.” Patients either set up their own appointments by calling 479-CARE, or are referred by their family physician for an optometry appointment. The doctors who work in U.S. Air Forces in Europe’s biggest optometry clinic specialize in multiple services

for their patients. “We can handle all types of appointments here,” Rattan said. “Our doctors do anything from the routine eye exam, to diagnosing and treating diseases, retraining physicals, school screenings and refractive surgery.” Because of the variety of services offered, members of the Ramstein Optometry Clinic key in on their patients needs, ensuring they receive the right care. “Every patient is different and has different needs,” said Master Sgt. Kelli Senker, optometry flight chief. “We get to know our patients during their screening prior to seeing the doctor.” Patient care starts from the time they’re scheduled for their appoint-

ment through the time glasses are adjusted after they arrive. With so many different things going on during the appointment process, Senker and the rest of the clinic staff try to ensure the best experience possible for patients. “We are a team here and any one of us is able to pick up where the last left off,” she said. “It’s a smooth operation here.” At the end of the day, the optometry staff takes pride in the customer service they provide. “When you ask any of the technicians here what their favorite part of the job is, the consensus is that we all love the interaction with our patients,” Senker said.

Awareness campaign set for most common cancer among women by Capt. (Dr.) Candace Talcott Landstuhl Regional Medical Center Public Affairs

O

ctober is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, dedicated to increasing awareness and raising funds for breast cancer research. You or a family member may have been affected by this devastating disease, as an estimated 2.6 million women in the U.S. are living with, or have a history of, breast cancer. It is the most common type of cancer in women and the second most deadly. Breast cancer starts from unregulated growth and division of cells starting in breast tissue ducts or glands, and is diagnosed as “in situ” when confined to the originating duct or gland. It is considered invasive when it has spread to surrounding tissue or lymph nodes, and metastatic when it has spread to distant organs. The most common sign of breast cancer is a painless lump, though it may manifest as a bloody discharge, thickened or red skin, skin erosions or inversion of the nipple. When breast cancer is caught early (smaller size, more localized tissue) the treatment options can be less invasive and the survival rate is much higher. As routine use of mammograms increased from

the 1980s through the 1990s, more breast cancers were detected even before they could be felt. Early detection and improved treatments have led to improved survival. Statistics show decreasing deaths by 2 percent per year from 1990 to 2007. Improved cancer treatments include lumpectomies, neo-adjuvant chemotherapy, hormonally targeted therapy, and radiation therapy, depending on the type of cancer cells and the extent of invasion. Guidelines for screening for breast cancer have been established by several governing bodies. In 2009, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommended mammograms every two years for women between 50 and 74 years old. The American Cancer Society and American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommend clinical breast exams by your healthcare provider every three years for women 20 to 39; then clinical breast exams plus annual mammography beginning at age 40. Monthly breast self exams have been re-emphasized, and women are encouraged to become familiar with the appearance and feel of their breasts as part of breast self awareness and notify their physician of any changes. In addition to routine screening, achieving and maintaining a healthy weight, regular physical activity, as well as reducing alcohol consumption have been linked

to a reduced risk of breast cancer. As part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the following events are scheduled in the KMC: OCT. 13: The LRMC 5K Breast Cancer Awareness Run. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. at the track near Gate 4 and the Army and Air Force Exchange Service Gas Station. The race begins at 9 a.m. Prizes will be awarded. Mammogram appointments can be booked at the event. Pre-registration will be held Saturday at the Kaiserslautern Military Community Center for the run and raffle for gift baskets. For more information, call Becky Muenchow at 486-6791 or 06371-86-6791. OCT. 13: The Rheinland-Pfalz Breast Cancer Survivors representatives will be at the KMCC with information on breast cancer OCT. 21: A tea will be held at the Ramstein Community Club from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. A Bavarian tea set will be given to the first 30 people who RSVP. Maj. (Dr.) Penelope Harris, an oncologist from LRMC, and Lt. Col. (Dr.) Bradford Scanlon, an LRMC plastic surgeon, will be two of the guest speakers. Speakers will also include a breast cancer survivor. Tea, coffee and pastries will be served. There will be door prizes and baskets to be given away. Mammogram appointments can also be booked. For more information, call Marina Latiff at 486-6447 or 06371-86-6447.

‘Steel Magnolias’ premieres at Hilltop Theater A heart-warming and bittersweet comedy, “Steel Magnolias” is the funniest play ever to make you cry. With the sweet gentility of Southern belles and strength and wit made of steel, the magnolia ladies will have you crying and laughing together. “Steel Magnolias” features a cast of six lovable, zany characters from Chinquapin Parish, La. Beautician Truvy Jones, pink crazed daughter Shelby, mother M’Lynn, cranky Ouiser, mayor’s wife Clairee, and new assistant Annelle face some of life’s most difficult moments with courage, humor, laughter and tears. “There is no such thing as natural beauty,” says Truvy, and she knows all about beauty. Designed and built by Eric Danzeiser, Truvy’s beauty parlor is a convincing, old-fashioned home salon that is the setting for “Steel Magnolias,” which opens today. The stage production of “Steel Magnolias” is intimate, almost as if you are in Truvy’s beauty parlor waiting to have your hair done and listening

in on the conversation. Jacqui Haggerty plays Truvy Jones, the central axle of the action whose personality is larger than life, but also gutsy and sweet. Natasha Torres debuts in the role of Annelle, the ditzy new beauty parlor recruit. Clairee is played by Lois Borsay with wonderful dry wit. Whimsical yet determined Shelby is played by Rachel Holliday, whose real life mother, Kristin Holliday, plays the hovering M’Lynn, a typically overprotective mom. Tom Navo is properly mean, cranky and funny as Ouiser. The Baumholder Java Cafe is getting into the spirit with Magnolia Specials during September. Buy a special drink and receive a two-forone admission ticket to the show on your choice of dates. The cast and crew from both the Baumholder and Kaiserslautern military communities are rehearsing long hours in preparation. “Big, glitzy shows are fun, but I think the heart of theater is in the intimate,” said director Eric Danzeiser. “(There are) a few very talented folks

performing just for you.” “Steel Magnolias,” the true life story written by Robert Harling, is a truly moving play that celebrates the strength and value of friendship, humor and love in the midst of life’s greatest hardships. “Steel Magnolias” opened off-Broadway in 1987, became a big-cast movie

hit in 1989, and was produced on Broadway in 2005. “Steel Magnolias” is being performed through special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service Inc. “Steel Magnolias,” a show the whole family will enjoy, opens at the Hilltop Theater today and Saturday and continues Sept. 28 and 29 and

Oct. 5 and 6. The Baumholder Hilltop Theater is located beside Burger King on Smith Barracks. Show tickets are $10 at the door or two-for-one with the purchase of any of the Magnolia Specials at the Java Cafe. For more information, call 06783-6-7244 or 485-7244. (By Cheryl Navo)

he wine village of Freinsheim will sponsor a culinary hike on its wine hiking trail today to Sunday. The 7-kilometer-long trail, called “Schwarzes Kreuz,” or black cross, is located southwest of Freinsheim and leads through two vineyards.

Starting at 6 p.m. today, 21 locations will be set up along the route where wines, sparkling wines and juices of local vintners can be tasted. Each of these places will also serve international and regional culinary specialties such as tapas, goulash soup, meat dumplings with horse radish, pork roast with home fries, vintners’ steaks, prawns on pita, salmon with spaghetti and salad, farmers salad, potato pancakes with apple sauce, turkey strips, potato soup, onion cake, waffles, and much more. Today after dark, a fireworks display will illuminate the vineyards. On Saturday and Sunday, Wine Princess Kristina will officially open the event at 11:30 a.m. at the historical town hall. On Saturday, stores will stay open until 8 p.m. and will be open from 1 to 6 p.m. Sunday. The wine stands will be open from 6 to 9:30 p.m. today, and 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Motorists: Be careful during harvest season

M

otorists must be careful in fall, Germany’s harvest time. In harvest time, motorists should watch out for oversized agricultural vehicles and the mess harvesters might leave behind. German automobile clubs urge farmers to clean the roads after their work is done. They are also asking motorists to be extremely careful on these roads and to reduce their speed. Fall is the time when plows, corn choppers and harvesters are working on the fields. These harvesters can reach into the lanes of opposing traffic. Motorists must watch when passing such a vehicle, especially since they are not marked properly. In many cases, motorists have to slow down and follow patiently until the agricultural vehicle leaves the main road. Another danger is the so-called farmers black ice, which is clay and mud these agricultural vehicles bring out to the streets from fields. According to officials, farmers black ice provides an increased risk of accidents, especially for motorcycle drivers. The clay and mud, in combination with rain, can make roads slippery, much like black ice. (Courtesy of ADAC)

German-American Day is a reminder of Oct. 6, 1683, when 13 German families arrived near Philadelphia and founded Germantown, the first German settlement in the New World. In 1983, on the occasion of the “Tricentennial Anniversary of German Settlement

in America,” former U.S. President Ronald Reagan declared Oct. 6 as “German-American Day.” In 1987, Congress enacted a law designating Oct. 6 as German-American Day. The official proclamation was issued by Reagan on Oct. 2, 1987, in a Rose Garden ceremony. “Few people have blended so completely into the multicultural tapestry of American society and yet have made such singular economic, political, social, scientific and cultural contributions to the growth and success of these United States as have Americans of German extraction,” Reagan said in his proclamation. “Twenty-five years later, many American families live in the region of Kaiserslautern where they have become friends with their German neighbors and enriched the multicultural tapestry of present-day Germany,” said Katie Pelletier, GAIWC president. “On German-American Day, we also would like to present a certificate of appreciation to Amy Peaceman, a teacher at Landstuhl Elementary/Middle School and the United Service Organizations

Kaiserslautern for their commitment and work in the local community, fostering German-American relations.” Pütz is hoping that in future years, German-American Day can be celebrated as a much bigger event and lure many people. “I hope to be able to celebrate a German-American fest for the whole family in Kaiserslautern, which here is known as the American city,” Pütz said. “In my dreams, we’ll start it off with an American play in Pfalztheater and then have activities going on near the Rathaus and in the Casimir Castle right next to it.” It’s the goal of the women’s club to make people aware of the GermanAmerican commemoration day. “If you consider that many Americans have a German background, it’s just an obligation for us to bring both cultures together to celebrate,” said Caitlin Goodale-Porter, GAIWC vice president. Currently, GAIWC has about 300 members, almost 70 percent of which are Germans. “We are in desperate need of

American members also to join our board level,” Goddale-Porter said. “They don’t have to speak German. They only should be interested in fostering friendship and promoting tolerance with cultures.” One of the main annual events is the Pfennig Bazaar fundraiser. Profits are donated to German and American charities as well as school programs. GAIWC is also involved in maintaining the kinder graves on the Kaiserslautern cemetery, where 451 American infants born in the 1950s are buried. The club also offers a variety of interest groups such as foreign language classes, a discussion forum, art groups, culture groups, parent and children groups and youth groups. To become a new member or for more information on GAIWC, visit www.gaiwc.com or call Pelletier at 06383-9266018. To join the concert, email info@ atlantische-akaemdie.de or president@ gaiwc.com. The concert, under the auspices of Kaiseslautern’s Lord Mayor Dr. Klaus Weichel, will be held in the concert hall of the Südwestrundfunk studio, Fliegerstrasse in Kaiserslautern.

What is a pentathalon anyway?

I

n swimming, a pentathalon is a meet where swimmers compete in all four of their individual events (the freestyle, backstroke, butterfly and breaststroke) along with an individual medley, or IM. For each swimmer, the times for all events are totaled, and the swimmer with the fastest total time wins their age and gender group. The pentathalon is a physically demanding event, but it allows swimmers to compete in more than the usual number of races, which is three in a typical meet. For the Kaiserslautern Kingfish swim team, this meant yet another victory. On Sept. 15, 58 Kingfish swim team members traveled to SHAPE, Belgium, their first away meet of the season, to take on the SHAPE Seals, the NATO Marlins and the Rota Tiburones in the first of two pentathalons scheduled for this season. The Kingfish continued their winning streak with a 533-479-328-34 victory. Of the 12 individual pentathalon titles up for grabs, the Kingfish came away with five. Annika Zimmerer (6:00.18) and Elizabeth Gorske (3:53.55) swam away with victories in the 12 and under groups. Both swam 50-meter individual events and a 100-meter IM. Danielle Davis (8:06.69), Bobby Gaston (7:46.49) and Connor Davis (6:55.07) took honors in the 13 and over groups. They swam 100-meter individual events and a 200-meter IM. Connor Davis, 18, also left the pool with all five individual first place finishes in hand. Also of note was that the girls’ 11- and 12-year-old group. The Kingfish trio of Gorske, Penelope Washington and Nagisa Reed managed a 1-2-3 sweep of the top spots.

Modern Combatives Tournament

The Modern Combatives Tournament will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday at the Miesau Fitness Center. Registration and weigh-in take place from 8 to 9 a.m. A coaches meeting takes place at 9.

Noah Craig, a member of the Kaiserslautern Kingfish swim team, swims the breaststroke Sept. 8 at the Ramstein Aquatic Center during a swim meet.
