Newsletter Director’s Notes The end of summer is here which means the start of a new school year and this means more children out walking to school and school buses on the road. Please be careful when driving around school and unlike the United States, German traffic law allows motorists to pass school buses that are loading or unloading (very slowly and on both sides of the road). Pedestrians (including students) are responsible to insure the roadway is clear of traffic. Safety is of the utmost importance for children as they enter and exit the school bus. Please talk to your child (children) about watching for traffic when they are crossing the street or while trying to board their bus and if your child rides a bike to school, remind them to wear their helmet. How are you making a difference?? The beginning of September marks the launch of the Combined Federal Campaign Overseas (CFC-O), which is the world's largest annual workplace charity drive, and runs through November. Federal employees and Service Members will have an opportunity to give to charities of their choice via automatic payroll deduction, one-time cash or check gift. Even the smallest of donations can go a long way to making a difference in someone's life. Check with your chain of command for your unit CFCO representatives.

August 26 is Women's Equality Day and marks the 98th anniversary of women in the United States winning the right to vote. With little financial, legal or political power of their own, and facing a well-financed and entrenched opposition, women fought state by state for their rights as citizens. To win the right to vote, women circulated countless petitions, gave speeches, published newspapers, and travelled the country to win support. Friday, 30 August is the start of the Labor Day weekend. Labor Day is celebrated on the first Monday in September and is a day set aside to remember the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of America. It is also the last long weekend before summer ends, so whatever your plans, keep safety at the forefront. Know the risks and make the right decisions to ensure you have a safe and fun filled weekend. Lastly, the Chaplain has officially opened the “Caffeine Attic” in building 724. This is a great facility that the entire community can use – please check with the Chaplain’s office for further details. Enjoy the summer and be safe!

Beste Grüße, Sean C. Lehane USAG Bavaria Deputy Garrison Manager

Recognizing and reporting suspicious activity at USAG Bavaria GRAFENWOEHR, Germany — One of the most important roles you have as a member of our community is to report suspicious activity or behavior. The two easiest ways to report suspicious activity or behavior: Use the Army’s iSalute suspicious activity report. Submit a report online at https:// www.inscom.army.mil/isalute. Call the MPs. From Grafenwoehr and Vilseck, dial DSN 476-3398/3397, CIV 09662-833398/3397. From Hohenfels, dial DSN 466-2812/2713, CIV 09472-83-2812/2713. From Garmisch, dial DSN 440-3801/3827, CIV 08821-750-3801/3827. How do you determine what is suspicious activity or behavior? A suspicious activity or behavior is when a person’s conduct or action does not fit the normal day-to-day activity or behavior of our neighborhood. It’s an occurrence that is out of place and should not be happening in our neighborhood. Remember, if you observe something unusual or think something looks ‘wrong’, report it. Don’t hesitate. You will not get in trouble with the police and you’ll be doing a service to your community. CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING ACTIVITIES AND BEHAVIOR AS SUSPICIOUS:             

A person or vehicle stays in the same place for an unusual length of time. A parked car with the engine running — regardless of a person inside or not. A person behaves strangely or exhibits unusual movements, looks out of place or is wandering aimlessly. A person concealing an object or carrying a weapon or suspicious bag. A person looking into cars, moving from car to car and/or trying to open door handles. A person looking into windows of homes or forcibly entering a car or home. A person running from a home for no apparent reason, especially at night. A person conducting business out of his or her vehicle. A vehicle drives around your block frequently, slowing down and speeding up. A vehicle without lights on, arriving or leaving at night. A person you don’t know offering candy or gifts to children. A person leaving a neighbor’s house who isn’t the neighbor or someone you recognize or uniformed. A person who is asking questions about security forces, security measures or sensitive information.

A person who is drawing pictures or taking notes in an are not normally of interest to a tourist. A briefcase, backpack, suitcase or package left unattended. Chemical smells or fumes that worry on you.

Many activities or behaviors can be considered suspicious. And there could be reasonable explanations for some suspicious activities or behaviors. But by thinking things through, being observant and using common sense, you will be able to make a good judgment about whether an activity or behavior is suspicious. Your role as a concerned citizen is to report whatever you think is wrong or suspicious.

Women’s Equality Day commemorates 26 August 1920 w hen votes to women officially became part of the US constitution. This day marks a turning point in the history of the struggle for equal treatment of women and women’s rights. In 1920, the day stood for the result of 72 years of campaigning by a huge civil rights movement for women. Prior to movements like these, even respected thinkers such as Rousseau and Kant believed that woman’s inferior status in society was completely logical and reasonable; women were ‘beautiful’ and ‘not fit for serious employment’. Over the last century, great women have proved these views wrong as the world has witnessed just what women are capable of achieving, from the likes of Rosa Parks and Eleanor Roosevelt fighting for civil rights and equality to great scientists such as Marie Curie, Rosalind Franklin and Jane Goodall. The last century has shown more than ever what both women and men are capable of achieving, given the opportunity. Today, women’s equality has grown to mean much more than just sharing the right to the vote. Organizations such as Equality Now and Womankind Worldwide continue to work to provide women across the globe with equal opportunities to education and employment, pushing against suppression and violence towards women and against the discrimination and stereotyping which still occur in every society. So on Women’s Equality Day, let the men do the dishes and the women do the DIY, think about supporting women’s empowerment projects in developing countries, stop thinking about men and women as separate beings with separate roles and start thinking about treating people as equals. http://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/womens-equality-day/
