KMC kicks off CFC-O 2015

by Senior Airman Jonathan Stefanko 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

The Combined Federal CampaignOverseas campaign kicked off its annual campaign Sept. 21 and it will continue through Nov. 20 in all five overseas commands. During the campaign season, Department of Defense personnel can contribute to help people in military communities across the nation and around the world. The theme of the CFC-O 2015 is “give because you care.” This theme underscores the importance of passion in charitable giving. “The theme ‘give because you care’ emphasizes the spirit of the campaign and invites contributors to support causes that have personal significance,” said Constance Baker, European Command and Africa Command campaign manager. “With more than 2,600 national and international charities in the CFC-O listing, contributors are sure to find a cause that is close to their hearts.” On Vogelweh, an Army versus Air

designed to offset the prices on non-housing goods and services. It is intended to equalize purchasing power so that members can purchase the same level of goods and services overseas as they could if they were stationed in the Continental United States. COLA is calculated by comparing the prices of goods and services overseas with average prices for equivalent goods and services in the CONUS. If the costs are higher in an overseas location, then members will receive a COLA.

Members can calculate their COLA payment at www.defensetravel.dod. mil/site/colaCalc.cfm. Service members and commands play a critical role by participating in the survey. Members are asked to report on which local stores they shop in and what percentage of purchases are made at local market outlets, commissaries, exchanges, mail order or internet purchases and purchased in the U.S. for use overseas.

n the next few weeks, service members will get a chance to help shape their overseas cost of living allowance payments. In October 2015, the Department of Defense will ask members stationed in Germany to participate in a living pattern survey, which captures where and how non-housing goods and services are purchased, a factor that directly affects COLA received by members.

“Every member receiving COLA should set aside a few moments to participate in this survey. Your feedback is crucial to accurately represent the cost of living in Germany. You have a vested interest in this survey's success,” said Capt. Eric Hulshizer, the Locality Allowance coordinator for Ramstein. The survey will be opened only during October and will be managed through the Defense Travel Management Office. Overseas COLA is a non-taxable, supplemental pay allowance

Habits: are they helping or holding you back?

COMMENTARY

by Lt. Col J. David Hood 86th Maintenance Group deputy commander Every New Year’s Eve, I think about the resolutions I’d like to adopt for the next year. Quite a few tend to focus on creating or fostering good habits while eliminating bad habits: exercise more, eat healthier foods, read additional professional books, eliminate procrastination or spend more time staying in contact with old friends. I recently dusted off a great book I had read a while back, “The Power of Habit” by Charles Duhigg, which gave me some great insights on how we form habits and how we can change bad habits. The book also has an appendix, which directs you toward putting these thoughts into practice. As Duhigg describes in his book, one executes daily habits and routines without much thought. This is the primary benefit of habits: the brain allows us to execute them using little brainpower in order to conserve that brainpower for solving greater problems. Think about your routine for getting ready to drive a car: open the door, sit down, fasten seat belt, foot on the brake, lights on, ignition

team effort,” Baker said. “All services are pulling together to raise funds for people in need, and a little friendly competition is a great way to start.”

on, check emergency brake, shift into reverse, etc. This routine happens before you’ve truly thought about performing each step. Habits don’t just happen for people. Your organization has many routines which either help or hinder mission accomplishment. Therefore, habits can be good for us and our organizations. While we want to continue our good habits, we really want to attack bad habits. So how does the habit loop work? According to Duhigg, habits are created from following a three-step process over and over again: cue, routine and reward. Cues tell the brain to execute a specific process and can include many categories such as time, location, emotional state, events or specific people. Once a cue is received, the brain then executes a routine. Following the routine, we receive a reward which can be as simple as the successful completion of a work task. Thankfully, a habit or organizational routine doesn’t usually form after performing this cycle once. Otherwise, we’d be locked into a lot of bad habits every time we attempt something for the first time. Repetition helps lock in the routine, but the reward is also a key factor. Am I getting the desired reward by performing this habit? Furthermore, not all habits are created equally. As Duhigg

states in his book, keystone habits are ones that, when they start to shift, dislodge and remake other patterns. What if you were able to get 30 minutes of additional sleep each night? Those 30 minutes may translate into increased productivity and attentiveness at work, increased physical training scores and improved health. Each one of these factors now may drive further improvements in work, PT and health. In other words, additional sleep could be a force multiplier. Changing habits begins with the routine you’d like to change. First, find that personal habit or organizational routine that is causing problems for you or your organization. Then take a look at the potential rewards. Perhaps changing your reward will allow you to alter the routine. You may not be able to change the cue, but you may now have a different routine to execute when you receive the same cue. Making the time to take stock of our good and bad habits, both personally and professionally, is not an easy task, but taking time to invest in improving your personal habits and organizational routines will have a positive and lasting effect on you and your organization. Good luck!

This information will tell analysts how members use the local economy, as well as where prices should be collected for the comparison against the same products and services in the U.S. This and other data determines the COLA index and directly impacts the payments service members receive. While a location’s COLA index is reviewed each year, the survey is only conducted every three years. Because of this three-year cycle, commands are stressing the importance of completing the survey. “This is a prime opportunity for members to have a direct impact on the amount

of COLA they receive,” said Randall Ries, the Germany Country Allowance coordinator. The electronic survey takes just 30 to 45 minutes to complete and should be completed by the service member or spouse who has knowledge of household spending patterns. In completing the survey, service members should ensure that answers reflect actual shopping patterns. For more information on the survey, members can contact the 86th Comptroller Squadron Financial Analysis Flight at 480-4791 or 06371-47-4791 or the U.S. Army Europe G1 Military Pay section at 537-1073/1071 or 0611-143-537-1073/1071.

Enlisted Airmen: a legacy of professionals by Tech. Sgt. Torri Hendrix Secretary of the Air Force Public Affairs Command Information WASHINGTON — Professionalism was the common thread when the Air Force’s senior enlisted leader talked about the Airmen of yesterday, today and tomorrow during the Air Force Association’s Air and Space Conference and Technology Exposition Sept. 16 in Washington, D.C. “I want to talk to you about the legacy of more than seven million enlisted men and women in our Air Force, and how proud I am of them,” said Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force James A. Cody. “There is no question that our Air Force looks different because of the legacy and the commitment of those who came before us, and we have to carry that forward.” He explained the commitment carried by today’s Airmen and their responsibility to propel the Air Force into the future, all while maintaining a culture of integrity, service and excellence. “We understand in our chosen profession that it is a higher calling with higher standards,” Cody said. “We defend our nation and win its wars.

Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force James A. Cody thanks Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Mark A. Welsh III for his exceptional service by presenting him with an invitation to an Order of the Sword ceremony, following Cody's Enlisted Force Update at the Air Force Association's Air and Space Conference and Technology Exposition Sept. 16 in Washington, D.C.

We all take an oath and it really is a constant reminder of the gravity of that commitment to our nation. We live by core values that guide us in everything that we do.” Cody said today’s enlisted force is the most educated, experienced and capable it has ever been. Ninety-four percent of enlisted Airmen have some colleg-

education; 80 percent of Airmen know nothing more than a career of continuous combat operations. The Air Force is continuously advancing education opportunities, technologies and methodologies to grow more effective leaders. “How we leverage our Airmen today is unprecedented in the history of our force,” Cody said. “We are

a pretty phenomenal Air Force and really an exceptionally, exceptionally professional enlisted force.” He encouraged Airmen to constantly develop themselves and those around them, using honest and meaningful feedback and tools like MyVector to connect with Airmen at all levels. “Connecting with our Airmen … is essential to our professional force,” Cody said. “(It’s not) just about getting a job done ... it’s a lot more than that in our chosen profession.” The chief expressed his pride in today’s Airmen and in their families, and the confidence he has in the enlisted force. He shared stories of Airmen from across the force, highlighting their professionalism and dedication to service. “When you take a professional force that’s proud of what they do, you know what you get? You get performers,” he said. “This is our Air Force; these are our Airmen. This is what they do and how can you not be extremely proud? There are a lot of great things about being the chief master sergeant of the Air Force, but there is nothing, nothing better than spending time with Airmen.”

405th AFSB issues first full European Activity Set Story and photos by Greg Jones 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs MANNHEIM, Germany — A new era for U.S. forces began quietly and without fanfare in the dreary rain on the nondescript flatlands near Mannheim last week when the 405th Army Field Support Brigade, a partner organization to the 21st Theater Sustainment Command, began its first full issue of European Activity Set equipment to rotational forces from U.S.-based units. With the removal of two combat brigades from the European theater in recent years, the U.S. Army is relying on rotational forces to fill the gap in both training and operations in theater, and EAS equipping is a critical enabler of the concept. The EAS is comprised of a combat brigade worth of prepositioned equipment, including 250 tanks, fighting vehicles and self-propelled howitzers staged at EAS sites in Mannheim and Grafenwoehr. This equipment is drawn by rotational forces such as the 1st Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, which will then use it for training exercises with NATO and other partner nations. The forces will remain ready to respond to threats and aggressions against NATO partners and other allies. Keeping the equipment staged forward eliminates the considerable expense of shipping equipment each time a unit rotates in and out of Europe. It also reduces the amount of time rotating forces spend preparing for deployment and allows Soldiers to focus more time and energy on their mis-

sion and training. Finally, the EAS concept reduces the time needed to deploy forces into theater. Much like individual Soldiers draw their sleeping bag, helmet and other required field gear from a central issue facility, personnel from rotating brigades report to the EAS sites and draw approximately 1,200 major items of equipment, including about 250 tanks, infantry fighting vehicles and self-propelled howitzers. There are plans to expand the program beyond the two current EAS sites and push EAS sites out into NATO and allied partner nations in Eastern Europe where they will be ready to respond to threats to the region, according to Robin Dothager, 405th AFSB’s prepositioned stock manager. Dothager added that the equipment making up the EAS is not soft-edged training equipment, but the best and most modern warfighting equipment the Army has. “This equipment is either brand new or freshly refurbished,” Dothager said. “Most of us here (at the 405th AFSB) are old Soldiers ourselves, and we take pride in making sure that we’re putting the absolute best equipment in the hands of these Soldiers.” The current issue of equipment is expected to continue until mid-October. The 405th AFSB sets a goal of issuing equipment to an entire battalion in a single day; so in theory, an entire brigade could be appropriately “issued” in a matter of days. However, in some cases, such as this first rotation, units do not draw equipment pieces one right after another, instead receiving items on a “staggered”

schedule based on specific scheduled training events. Once their rotation is complete, the Soldiers will return the equipment and the 405th will begin the process of performing maintenance and services to bring the equipment back into tiptop condition for the next rotational force. By enabling the rotational forces concept, the EAS is a critical part of U.S. Army Europe’s ongoing effort to accomplish the same mission with limited resources, which massive formations of troops accomplished in years past. “Years ago, the U.S. had 300,000 troops in Europe,” said Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges, USAREUR commanding general, during a recent visit to the Coleman EAS site. “Our mission was to deter aggression. Now we have 30,000. Our mission is still to deter aggression. Our task now is to take the 30,000 and make them act like we still have 300,000.”

AFRC presents painting to Secretary of the Air Force

Today: Mushrooms as you get them on the fair

Ingredients Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James and Maj. Warren Neary, the Air Force Space Command historian and an Air Force Art Program artist, unveil the painting “That Others May Live” during the Air Force Association Air and Space Conference and Technology Exposition Sept. 14 in Washington, D.C.

Story and photos by Staff Sgt. Kat Justen 459th Air Refueling Wing Public Affairs WASHINGTON — Lt. Gen. James Jackson, Air Force Reserve Command commander, presented Secretary of the Air Force Deborah Lee James with the painting “That Others May Live” Sept. 14 during the Air Force Association Air and Space Conference and Technology Exposition. “That Others May Live” depicts the 2005 rescue of Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell by reservists from the 920th Rescue Wing after his unit came under hostile fire in Afghanistan during Operation Red Wings. The painting was created by Maj. Warren

Neary, the Air Force Space Command historian, and will become part of the Air Force Art Program. During the ceremony, Jackson recognized the crewmembers involved in the rescue, including Col. Jeffrey Macrander, 920th RW commander, and Lt. Col. Jeff Peterson, Air National Guard Air Force Reserve Command Test Center operational test pilot. “(Macrander) was the flight lead that day of the two HH-60G (Pave Hawks) that went in to rescue Marcus Luttrell,” Jackson said. “(Peterson) was his wingman. They went on July 2 ten years ago to pick up Marcus. Two days later, they went See painting, page 13

• 100 grams of mushrooms per person • 1 small onion • one leek • a little oil • salt • ground pepper • some red wine • parsley • baguette FOR THE DIP: • 1 spoon of crème fraiche • 1 spoon of mayonnaise • 2 teaspoons of milk • garlic • salt • ground white pepper • add some chili, if you like it spicy

Preparation

• Peel the onion and cut it in small dices • Clean the mushrooms • Wash the leek and cut it in thin rings • Chop the parsley • Cut the baguette • Cut the garlic in fine dices add salt to it and rub the salt into the garlic (do this on a plate, not on your wooden cutting board, otherwise the board will have that garlic smell for a long time …)

• Mix the crème fraiche, garlic and mayonnaise in a bowl, add the milk and the desired amount of spices to it and stir all to get a nice dip and set aside • On high temperature, heat the oil in a skillet • Add the mushrooms and roast them on high heat, stirring occasionally so they don’t burn • Add the onion and the leeks and roast them until they turn a nice brown color, then add some red wine and put a lid on the skillet so the mushrooms will soak with the red wine. The mushrooms will lose a lot of their water, don’t throw that away as this will make a fine sauce. Take the lid off and let most of the juice reduce. Maybe add a bit of garlic to the mushrooms if you like. • Add salt and ground pepper and parsley to taste • Put the dip in a nice bowl • Put the mushrooms in another bowl • Place the baguette in a basket • Put all on the table and have your own little fair at home!

Join us again next week!

Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James gives remarks during the unveiling ceremony of the painting “That Others May Live” during the Air Force Association Air and Space Conference and Technology Exposition. “That Others May Live” documents the rescue of Marcus Luttrell, a U.S. Navy SEAL, in June 2005 by reservists from the 920th Rescue Wing, Patrick Air Force Base, Fla. The well-known rescue was dramatized in the movie “The Lone Survivor.”

Kaiserslautern, Ramstein students train to become nursing assistants

Photos by the 7th Civil Support Command Public Affairs Office

Renee Gladu, a candidate in the Certified Nursing Assistant program at Ramstein High School, performs lifesaving procedures on a clinic dummy during training for licensing as a nursing assistant Sept. 13 at RHS.

by Sgt. Daniel Friedberg 7th Civil Support Command Public Affairs Office Almost two dozen high school seniors from the KMC volunteered on an early fall weekend to crouch together on rubber floor mats in order to perform cardio-pulmonary resuscitation using clinical dummies and video scenarios at Ramstein High School Sept. 12 and 13. In less than six months, the teenagers will be pulling shifts at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, said Kaiserslautern High School’s teaching nurse, Jodie L. Richmond. They will be tasked with joining military and civilian LMRC staff to help treat live patients at the U.S. military’s biggest hospital in Europe. The students are volunteers in an aggressive apprentice-

ship designed to forge and mature future medical talent in the skills necessary to license early as a Certified Nursing Assistant, said RHS’s teaching nurse, Pamela K. George. The high school students in the KMC aim to earn professional CNA licensing through the State of North Carolina’s Department of Health and Human Services in tandem with the U.S. Department of Defense Education Activity. They must perform more than two years of theoretical classroom studies, work at least 40 hours of clinical duty at LMRC and pass a written and practical test administered by examiners from the NCDHSR and Department of Defense Education Activity approving board, said Richmond. “Actually, it’s usually more than 56 practical hours with at least three 12-hour (hospital) shifts,” Richmond said.

Jodie L. Richmond, a teaching nurse at Kaiserslautern High School (right), instructs nursing assistant candidates on techniques to treat victims in cardiac arrest during training for licensing as a Certified Nursing Assistant at Sept. 13 at Ramstein High School.

The CNA license from the program also transfers to at least 39 States. Most of the candidates who complete the program have a decided advantage in pursuing future medical careers in both civilian and military sectors, Richmond said. They can also expect

early promotions, she added. For many of the students, a medical vocation is often a legacy of their own parent’s clinical professions, but the program is open to any candidate with the desire to help people and study hard, Richmond said. “I’m training to save lives,” said Atlanta N.

Haynes, a student of KHS. Haynes said her mother and sister both work in medicine. For RHS student Andrew S. Wilson, the certification is also about service and helping people. “I can change people’s lives,” Wilson said. “It’s kind of cool.”

in to pick up the remains of Medal of Honor (recipient) Michael Murphy and (his) fallen comrades.” James praised the crew’s efforts, commenting on how the actions of the citizen Airmen exemplified Air Force core values. “I talked about integrity, service and excellence and how this always underscores everything that we do in the United States Air Force, and I can't think of a group of professionals in arms who exhibit those behaviors and those core values more than this team,” James said. Neary captured the critical moment when the crew touched down to extract Luttrell. “This painting depicts the point where the pararescuers jumped out of the helicopter to rescue Marcus Luttrell and his friend Mohammad Gulab,” Neary said. “In the background, there are A-10 (Thunderbolt IIs) flying and engaging with enemy targets, along

Kaiserslautern American with an AC-130 Spectre gunship and the two helos covering each other.” “The things we bring to the fight as citizen Airmen are some incredible skillsets,” Jackson said. “One of the most incredible ones belongs to this artist … Major Warren Neary. He’s an award-winning artist (in addition to being an individual mobilization augmentee at the Air Force Space Command) and a Reserve citizen Airman.” According to Neary, who holds both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in fine arts, the Air Force Art Program started with the creation of the Air Force; the Army provided around 800 paintings and the collection has grown to include nearly 10,000. In her closing remarks, James expressed her gratitude for the generous contribution to the program. “This is, yet again, a proud moment for our total force Air Force. Thank you for giving us this wonderful gift of remembrance,” she said.

open air environment. This is in the future and we’re going to need industry’s help to get us there.” Question 2: How are we going to maintain agility in space, with assets that are unadaptable and a changing threat? “We’re going to build it for capabilities,” said Gen. John E. Hyten, the commander of the Air Force Space Command. “The challenges we have are a system, we have a system that loves the status quo, and the status quo is not built for the 21st century, it’s built for the 20th century. So we have to work inside the system to come up with a different way of thinking about space. We have to come up with a different way to think about cyber. We have to come up with a different way of thinking about all these pieces together; but we have to effectively build the capabilities that can effectively operate in that regime. We understand what those capabilities are, now we have to get the systems built.” Question 3: The Army is switching their uniforms to a multi-cam uniform. When will the Air Force be switching our camouflage? “I don’t think we’re going to switch our uniforms,” said Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force James A. Cody. “The reality is, we’re pretty satisfied with our ABUs (Airman battle uniform), and to switch them would cost us quite a bit of money. We’ll continue to wear the OCP when in the environment, that’s the proper uniform.” Question 4: How big a problem for you are these runways on reefs that China’s constructing? Does it measurably change your warning time or engagement zones? “The concern as they put down the 10,000-foot runway is that now maybe they put down an air defense identification zone, and then be able to defend it,” said Gen. Lori Robinson, the Pacific Air Forces commander. “As we heard Dr. (Ashton) Carter talk this morning, everybody is able to operate in international airspace and sail in international waters. If they militarize those runways, it

Kaiserslautern American will threaten our ability to do that.” Question 5: We welcome your thoughts on how to best support small businesses in an era of fiscal constraint. “Small businesses are the heart and soul of this country,” said Gen. Ellen M. Pawlikowski, the commander of the Air Force Materiel Command. “That’s really what it’s all about when you look at the contributions that they have made. I’ve always been a real strong advocate of small business. I think one of the key aspects of small businesses is to be able to transition that capability into our weapons systems or into the facilities that we have. We have set a focus on small business across Air Force Materiel Command in targeting a focus particularly at the research lab. One of the things that we’re doing is going directly from Small Business Innovation Research System into SBIRS Phase II. Instead of having to do a twostep process, our small businesses will be able to bring their technology directly into Phase II and that’s a step closer to being able to transfer in.” Question 6: The secretary said the time mark on the KC-46 Pegasus is about used up. What are the implications if the KC-46 is delayed by more than a few months? “As a recipient of that product, I am cautiously optimistic that the product is going to roll out. What it means for capability, that airplane is going to prove itself out time and time again, but we’ve got to hold to that schedule,” said Gen. Carlton D. Everhart II, the Air Mobility Command commander. “Because if you look at the impact it has on other modernization programs, I’ve got to make sure that AMC stays combat ready. Combat readiness and development in the future is what drives this. So, we’re watching this schedule and we’re watching it closely. I think Boeing will be able to deliver, but we’ve got to hold them to the contract.” Question 7: What is the most important new capability that you expect to need in the next decade and why? “The first thing that we are pursuing right now is taking the cover of weather away from the enemy in the current

September 25, 2015

fight in Afghanistan,” said Lt. Gen. Bradley A. Heithold, the commander of the Air Force Special Operations Command. “The enemy tends to seek objectives when the weather hampers coalition air. The number one thing we want to do is take that away from them. “Second, I’ve got to put directed energy, high-energy lasers, onboard to defend them in orbit and also to use these things offensively to engage the targets. I believe we can make things quick work because you don’t hear it, or see it. By the time you know we’re there, it’s too late.” Question 8: How will you build on the work that has already been done on revamping the nuclear enterprise, and can you state your top priorities in doing it? “There have been a lot of positive efforts made across the nuclear enterprise, so I’m going to continue that drive,” said Gen. Robin Rand, the commander of the Air Force Global Strike Command. “My priorities are number one: If nuclear command and control is a critical function for our nation and our senior decision makers, you’ve got to have a platform to deliver that, and that’s the nuclear command and control communications. The Air Force has the lead on about 75 percent of what makes up that system, so I’ll be collaborating with a lot of my fellow MAJCOM commanders here who own a lot of those different resources and systems to make sure we’re able to deliver. God forbid on our nation’s worst day our senior leaders and the president can

communicate. “Number two: We’ve got to continue to modernize and recapitalize where we can. The ICBM (intercontinental ballistic missile) and UH-1N (Iroquois), the B-2 (Spirit) and the B-1B (Lancer), and when we get the announcement for the long range strike bomber that we’re driving that to IOC (initial operational capability) in 2020 and be capable of delivering what our nation needs in 2030. “Number three: professional development. Particularly this is a priority. We have great young men and women in Air Force Global Strike. If we have problems with our people, I challenge our leaders, it’s because we have to lead them better.” Number 9: Do you anticipate the National Guard being deployed or employed at any time in any capacity to secure borders in the near future? “Actually we’re on the borders right now sir. We are deployed in every part of the United States right now,” said Lt. Gen. Stanley E. Clarke III, the Air National Guard director. “The reason we’re able to sit comfortably in this room is because someone is on alert covering us, right now. If there’s a requirement for us to do a mission in the homeland, something that everyone understands in the Guard is regardless of whether they’re Air Force or Army, they are required to do that state mission as well.” Question 10: Is there one major thing that a future cadet or young officer can begin to work on for their future? “Get out of your comfort zone early and often,” said

Lt. Gen. James Jackson, the commander of the Air Force Reserve Command. “Look for that opportunity and when you feel uncomfortable, it’s probably the best learning experience that you’re going to have.” Question 11: F-22 Raptors were recently deployed to Europe. Bedding down F-22s there was not in the plan, but now that Russia seems to have taken a long-term aggressive posture, do you see an F-22 base in Europe or a semi-permanent detachment like the bombers in Guam? “The move to introduce the F-22 in the European theater was made a long time ago in our effort to assure our allies and deter our enemies,” said Gen. Frank Gorenc, the U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa commander. “It has done a lot to assure our partners. You can bet that I will be asking for that priority. I understand there are priorities, but I hope to be cut above the line. Not only did we move the F-22, but we also moved in MQ-1B (Predators) … which is an enormous accomplishment.” Question 12: What does the AETC position, being lowered to a three-star job, mean to its mission and its chain of command? “The Air Education and Training Command is essential to our Air Force,” said Lt. Gen. Darryl Roberson, the AETC commander. “Air power starts here at AETC. It’s so fundamental, everyone here at this table understands how fundamental it is. So whether you have a three-star or four-star is not critically important.”

Europe’s ‘Best Warriors’ named after thrilling com

Photo by Staff Sgt. Warren W. Wright Jr.

Competitors from the 2nd Cavalry Regiment dismount a Stryker combat vehicle during a medical scenario exercise conducted as part of the 2015 European Best Warrior Competition Sept. 15 at the Grafenwoehr Training Area. About 22 candidates participated in the intense, annual weeklong competition, the most prestigious competitive event of the region. In the end, only one junior officer, one NCO and one Soldier emerged as “Best Warriors.”

by Sgt. Maj. Michael Pintagro 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs Competition officials unveiled Europe’s ultimate warriors before a rapt audience of Soldiers, leaders and distinguished visitors during a culminating ceremony held Sept. 18 at the Grafenwoehr Physical Fitness Center. The 173rd Airborne Brigade‘s 1st Lt. Jacob Wijnberg, fellow “Sky Soldier” captured top honors in the officer category, Sgt. 1st Class Elijah Howlett the NCO category and Spc. Jared Tansley, 2nd Cavalry Regiment, captured the junior Soldier category during the 2015 European Best Warrior Competition. The grueling weeklong event determined not only continental bragging rights, but the final roster of candidates for the Department of the Army Best Warrior Competition slated for Oct. 5 to 9 at Fort A.P. Hill in Virginia. Howlett, who serves with Troop B of the 173rd’s 1st Squadron, 91st Cavalry Regiment, and Tansley, an infantryman with Headquarters Troop, 3rd Squadron, will compete against fellow Soldiers across the Army for the service’s most prestigious individual competitive title. The junior officer competition culminates at command level. “I was happy to compete, and I’m incredibly proud to represent my unit at this level and represent the U.S. Army in Europe,” said Wijnberg, who currently serves in Latvia with Company D, 1st Battalion (Airborne), 503rd Infantry Regiment.

“It’s been an honor and a privilege to compete with (the other candidates), and I look forward to staying in touch with them and continue watching them grow in their careers. “I’m here to represent my unit and my Soldiers,” Howlett continued. “So I want to make sure I’m setting the best example for them, so hopefully it inspires them to compete and do things above and beyond instead of just meeting the standard. That’s why I got in this competition and why I feel great about it.” Europe’s top NCO of the year said he looks forward to competing at DA level. “I’m up for the challenge,” Howlett said. “I embrace it. Whatever comes our way, we’re going to be prepared for it, and we’re going to win all-Army.” Tansley said he reached the “highest level of happiness” upon learning of his victory. “I felt like I brought a ton of pride back to my unit and my platoon, to family and friends,” Tansley said. “I have so many people to thank and not enough time to cover them all.” Tansley also expressed confidence in his prospects at Fort A.P. Hill. “Three weeks is more than enough time,” Tansley said. “We’re going to bring it home; we’re going to win.” The infantryman plans to continue the rigorous training that carried him to triumph at unit and command levels. The near future, he noted, includes “nothing but rucking, running and a lot of weightlifting. No breaks until you win it all.”

The concluding ceremony capped a week of frenzied activities for candidates, organizers and cadre alike, not to mention months of painstaking planning, preparation and rehearsals. Command Sgt. Maj. Sheryl Lyon, USAREUR senior enlisted leader and guest speaker for the awards ceremony, praised candidates’ performance, character and commitment. “I saw a whole lot of heart and dedication,” Lyon said prior to the final event. “These candidates take enormous pride in what they do and it shows. This event tested everything they had — physically and mentally. I couldn’t be more proud of them.” Competitors enjoyed their first significant remaining week during the ceremony. The relentless pace of events stretched candidates’ stamina, endurance, dedication and perhaps their sanity to the breaking point. Days ended late, sometimes after midnight, sometimes starting at absurdly early hours. The earliest competitive day began at 1 a.m. — barely three hours after weary candidates collapsed in exhaustion from the little rest from the previous days’ activities. Candidates engaged in an array of competitive tasks, including an obstacle course; day and night land navigation; weapons assembly and marksmanship; urban “orienteering”; tactical communications; a medical scenario; a “situational training exercise” during which candidates engaged a terrorist threat; a culminating 12 mile foot march; and a demanding modified version of the Army Physical Fitness Test allowing for no rest in between events.

Keeping children safe this school year by Tech. Sgt. Greg Riley 86th Security Forces Squadron It’s that time of the year again — temperatures are lowering and the days are getting shorter. Some may even notice the house is a little quieter which must mean that school is back in session. Even though this may be good news for most parents, and children, the start of the school year also raises challenges and concerns. Children are our most valuable assets, and getting them to and from school safely is one of our highest priorities. More than 3,600 kids attend school on Ramstein and a large number of them walk to school. According to the National Safety Council, 61 children are hit by cars every day in the U.S. In 1995, children between the ages of 5 and 9 were the more likely age group to be struck by a vehicle. However, this age demographic statistic has shifted noticeably over the last 20

years because of modern technology. The council reports that thanks to cell phones and other electronic devices, teenagers are much more distracted when walking in public, putting them at a higher risk of being struck by a car. This includes wearing headphones. It is prohibited on base to wear headphones while walking in a traffic environment, e.g., crosswalks, parking lots, etc. The age old adage, “look both ways before crossing the street”, needs an additional, “keep your head up and your phone down.” Another mode of travel for students is bicycling. All rules and tips that pertain to electronics also apply to children choosing to ride a bike to school. Additional rules and tips apply to bicycle riders as well: Helmets must be worn by riders at all times; during periods of reduced visibility, including hours of darkness and inclement weather, riders should wear a highly visible outer garment or reflective

equipment as well as equip their bikes with a headlight and taillight; and don’t forget, bikers must also obey all traffic rules. For those waiting for the bus, children should stay off the road and avoid congregating on corners, which can block a motorist’s view. When exiting the bus, children should walk at least 10 feet in front of the bus before crossing its path to ensure the driver can see them. Even though vehicle operators are required to stop for school buses, it is dangerous to assume they will, so always ensure the lane is clear before crossing. Note that if a school bus off base has pulled off the road into a designated pick-up and drop-off lane, drivers are not required to stop. Whether a child walks, bikes or takes the bus to school, there is a chance they will come in contact with a stranger. Do not assume that a military installation is safer than any other community. Unfortunately, crimes against children have happened on

this base. It is very important for parents to talk to their children about “stranger danger.” The school year brings hectic amounts of various kinds of traffic, and safety is everyone’s responsibility. Parents need to educate, implement and practice safety procedures. Children and students need to stay vigilant and follow set safety measures, and all vehicle operators are required to obey traffic sym-

bols and speed limits. In addition, security forces will be increasing their presence in high traffic areas to enforce traffic laws, but hopefully that won’t be necessary. Let’s have a successful and safe school year. If you have any questions or would like more information on how to keep your child safe this school year, contact the 86th Security Forces Squadron Police Services at 480-1215 or 06371-47-1215.

Chestnut season is coming up! Chestnut trees grow in the Palatinate forest and southern Weinstrasse regions, therefore everything in the Trifelsland region will be chestnut themed from October 1 to November 15. Participating cafes, vineyards and restaurants will be customizing their menus to take part in the celebration. Locals love these little delicacies so much they’re not afraid to put them in anything and everything edible. Chestnuts in desserts? Yes. Chestnuts in Bratwurst? Yes. Their culinary market will be offering an array of exotic chestnut flavored delicacies. Everything from dumplings, soups, honey and pies, not to mention beer and liqueur, will be found in Annweiler am Trifels on October 3 and 4. Of course other traditional meals will  be found there too, such as homemade Flammkuchen and local wine. Chestnut flour is a healthy and gluten free alternative to regular wheat and tastes amazing in bread or other savory baked goods. Salesmen at the market will be happy to assist you with any nutrition related questions as well as recipes. On October 3, Trifelsland will elect their 12th  chestnut queen in a solemn ceremony. If you’re more interested in exploring the forest on your own or with your family, you can hike along the 60 kilometer ‘Pfälzer Keschdeweg’ (Palatine chestnut route), which leads you past the historic Madenburg and the romantic wine  villages of Eschbach and Leinweiler. In a nutshell (pun intended), delicious weeks lie ahead of us and you won’t want to miss this colorful program to brighten up your fall and spice up your kitchen. — See more at: militaryingermany.com/ chestnut-days-in-trifelsland #sthash.gNpZ4KYV.dpuf

The best coffee – fully automatic! Simply a pleasure: Fully automated coffee machines ensure your cappuccino, latte macchiato and espresso are always fresh and aromatic. The reason: coffee beans are ground right before brewing. You can also adjust the cup size, coffee strength and temperature individually. Many also have milk frothers and a nozzle for hot water for tea, for example.
