Parachute test to provide AC-130 crew the best by Jet Fabara 412th Test Wing Public Affairs There’s a lot to be said by AC-130 gunship aircrew members who are proud of their heavily armed aircraft. These aircraft have the latest in sophisticated weapons, high tech sensors, navigation and fire control systems; however, it lacked one thing – a lightweight parachute that was agile enough for the entire crew to use. Thanks to the work of the Aircrew Performance Branch Program Office, part of the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center’s Agile Combat Support Directorate, and testing completed in April by the Global Reach Combined Test Force Test Parachutist Program, crew members aboard AC-130s will now have a lightweight alternative, the Low Profile Parachute. “The LPP program is a success story for Air Force Materiel Command’s newly established five-center construct. The five centers, which report directly to AFMC, include Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, Air Force Test Center, Air Force Research Laboratory, Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center, and Air Force Sustainment Center,” said Lt. Col. Christopher Lemanski, AFLCMC Aircrew See PARACHUTE, Page 8 Air Force photograph by Staff Sgt. Jonathan Case

Air Force secretary announces departure Secretary of the Air Force Michael Donley has announced his plan to step down June 21 as the Air Force’s top civilian after serving for nearly five years. “It’s been an honor and a privilege to serve with our Air Force’s great Airmen,” Donley said. “Their accomplishments have been nothing short of impressive and I’m humbled to be a part of this team. The Air Force has been a way of life for so much of my career, I know it will be bittersweet to say farewell.” Donley was confirmed as the 22nd secretary of the Air Force Oct. 2, 2008. He served as the

acting secretary since June of that year, as well as for seven months in 1993, making him the longest serving secretary in the history of the Air Force. He also served as the service’s top financial officer from 1989 to 1993. “Mike has been an invaluable adviser during my first two months as Secretary of Defense and has been an outstanding leader of the Air Force for nearly five years,” said Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel. “His leadership came during a challenging time for the Air Force, and he helped instill a culture of responsibility, initiative and professionalism to the

service. Mike has been an unwavering champion for our Airmen, their families, and for American airpower. The Air Force he leaves behind is more resilient and more respected because of his leadership and personal dedication.” Though Donley has not yet announced any future plans, he remains dedicated during his remaining time to supporting the Secretary of Defense in the many challenges that lie ahead for the service. “In the meantime, there remains much to do,” Donley said. “This is an extraordinary and exciting time for our Air Force, filled with both

challenges and opportunities. I remain confident that the strength and professionalism of our Airmen, and the commitment and determination of General Welsh, Chief Cody and our military and civilian leadership team, will continue to see us through.” Donley’s 35 years of experience in the national security community also includes service in the Senate, White House and the Pentagon. Prior to assuming his current position, he served as the Director of Administration and Management in the Office of the Secretary of Defense.

Commentary Leadership not defined by shapes, sizes by Col. Jerry Wizda 39th Medical Group commander Short in stature at 5 feet 4 inches, not particularly handsome, a bookworm and not exactly the life of the party, James Madison does not fit some perceptions of a leader. In today’s world, he probably would have been perceived as a nerd. But, his brilliant mind and leadership skills now have historians re-embracing Madison’s presidency and his leadership. President Madison is best known as “The Father of the Constitution.” He was a delegate, unequaled in his writing abilities, who kept written documentation at every secret Constitutional Convention’s meeting. Later, his Virginia Plan became the basis for our Constitution. What most people do not remember is President Madison’s equally successful presidency, when he led an infant nation against the greatest naval power in the world and won. The War of 1812 remains “The Forgotten War.” Many do not realize it was through President Madison’s leadership the U.S. escaped becoming, once again, subjects of Great Britain. So what personal attributes made this man an unlikely leader, and what can you take from the story of President Madison and apply to today’s world to make you a leader? First, always believe in yourself and never doubt your abilities. This is probably the hardest perception to embrace. Each day when President Madison went to the Constitutional Convention meetings, he stood up and rallied for a democratic government with election of congressmen directly by the people. He wrote the Federalist Papers with John Jay and Alexander Hamilton; documents considered to be the best interpretation of American government, even in present times. He truly embraced his ideals, and this spurred him to speak and write what was in his heart. His conviction to his ideals gave us the great nation we have today. At work, strive to be the best you can

May 3, 2013

be. Work from your heart. If you give already 100 percent, strive to give 110 percent. Secondly, stay true to yourself and stand by your convictions. After President Madison asked Congress to declare war on Great Britain June 1, 1812, riots began because of the decision. Talk of succession in New England ran rampant. But, President Madison stayed true to his belief in freedom for America. And, despite opposition to the war, he stood his ground. He said, “If we lose, we lose independence.” People will perceive you as a leader if you stick to your beliefs and do not go back and forth on your ideals. Even those who do not agree with you will respect you for your steadfast loyalty and convictions. Lastly, know when to stay and know when to run. Even the best leaders must give up the fight at some point for the sake of their people. On Aug. 24, 1814, President Madison and Congress fled Washington on horseback as the British advanced on the city. While it may have been perceived as cowardly to run, fleeing the city was the only choice President Madison had. If he had a chosen to stay and ordered Congress to stay, they would have been captured or killed. Merely three days after fleeing, President Madison returned to Washington, rallied the citizens, and connected with the people like he never had before. President Madison rallied Congress and met in a post office, the only building left standing. He began the work of the government from scratch and turned the tide of war. Think carefully about your decisions and of the consequences down the road. Is the fight worth it? Not all of us will become president, but each in our own way, can be a successful leader. Every day we make decisions that affect our families, the Air Force and its Airmen, and our country. Many of these decisions are simple, and many can be life-altering. If we embrace the lessons of our forefathers, we are sure to become successful Airmen and leaders in our own right.

Hagel to make furlough decision soon by Jim Garamone American Forces Press Service Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel will make a decision soon on the scope of civilian furloughs in response to sequestration spending cuts, Pentagon Press Secretary George Little said May 2. Hagel is reviewing analysis on the budget “and he’ll reach a decision in the near future,” Little told reporters. Little acknowledged news reports that some services contend they do not need to use furloughs to make their sequestration goals. “There are different pockets of money in

different places for each of the services,” he said. “To be totally straightforward, the math does work for some services to avoid some furloughs, at a minimum. For other services, it is harder.” The general principle so far has been “one team, one fight” inside the department to be consistent, the press secretary said. “That’s an understandable position,” he added. Still, he said, Hagel is reviewing the DOD budget and the constraints the department is operating under. “We’re in the middle of a $37 billion to $40 billion cut over a sixmonth period, and we need to look closely at that, but I expect him to make a decision soon,” the spokesman said.

The situation “points out the absurdity of sequestration,” Little said. “You don’t have a lot of choice, in some cases, over where to save money and where to cut,” he added. “The across-the-board cut is forcing some tough decisions. The goal of the furlough so far ... is to ensure, at least on this issue, there is some consistency.” When originally proposed, all DOD civilian personnel were going to be furloughed for 22 days during the remainder of fiscal year 2013, which ends Sept. 30. Officials since have reduced that estimate to 14 days. DOD officials are examining requests for exemptions, Little said.

Public law repeals mil-to-mil automatic FSGLI enrollment by Debbie Gildea JB San Antonio-Randolph, Texas A public law that took effect in January repealed automatic enrollment in Family Servicmembers Group Life Insurance for military members married to military members, but those Airmen may still elect the additional coverage, Air Force Personnel Center officials said. In the past, military married to military were automatically enrolled in FSGLI, and automatically incurred premium debts,

whether they wanted the coverage or not. Now, members married to other uniformed service members who want the additional insurance coverage must elect it and complete required application forms. The change does not affect member insurance coverage. All uniformed members are automatically enrolled in SGLI for $400,000, unless they choose less or no coverage, said Susie Parson, AFPC casualty affairs section. “Rejecting coverage or electing less coverage must be done in writing, and this law has not

changed that. Military members are still covered. What FSGLI does is allow members to pay for additional life insurance coverage on their military spouse – up to $100,000 depending on the member’s coverage,” she explained. “The spouse coverage cannot be more than the member has elected on him or herself, and can’t be more than $100,000.” Members married to other members prior to January are still covered under the previous policy. Members who married after Jan. 2 are not automatically enrolled, but

may see premiums coming out of their pay, Parson said. “The finance and data programs aren’t synced and updated yet, but once the military personnel data system updates with the accounting and finance system, members who do not want the coverage will be reimbursed. Members need to know that premiums coming out of your pay do not mean your spouse has the additional coverage,” she explained. “If you got married after Jan. 2 and you want additional life insurance on your military spouse, you will

have to elect it.” The law and policy change does not affect FSGLI coverage on non-military spouses, Parson said. Non-military spouses are automatically covered unless the military sponsor declines the coverage in writing. For more information about military and family benefits and other personnel issues, visit the myPers website at https://mypers. [ ] and search for article number “25004” or “FSGLI.”

Banquet honors local 4.0 seniors The Mojave Transportation Museum and the Mojave Chamber of Commerce held their 11th Annual Excellence in Academics Recognition Banquet April 24 at the Mojave Veterans Building. The banquet recognizes high school seniors who achieved a 4.0 Grade Point Average from five East Kern County high schools, which includes Desert Junior Senior High School. Col. Lawrence Hoffman, U.S. Air Force Test Pilot School commandant, along with his wife Jill, were guest speakers at the event. Both Hoffmans talked to the aspiring teenagers about how “education is the key to unlock your future.” Both Colonel and Jill Hoffman grew up around the Antelope Valley (graduating from Desert High School and Quartz Hill High School respectively) and both attributed their success and being able to follow their aviation dreams through their educational achievements. As the daughter of world famous pilot, Dick Rutan, and niece of revolutionary aeronautical designer, Burt Rutan, Jill Rutan Hoffman has witnessed many aviation firsts. From the milestone-setting Voyager flight of 1986 to the X-Prize winning space flights of SpaceShipOne, Jill had a ringside seat to modern civilian aviation history. She has authored two books. Jill and her husband have traveled the world during their 24 years in the Air Force while Colonel Hoffman piloted more than 45 different types of military aircraft in combat, operations, and test flights. Through donations and mentorship, the Hoffmans actively support organizations that offer opportunities for young adults to experience the world of aviation and space exploration.

Tech. Sgt. Matthew Mensch, 418th FLTS parachute test jumper, exits a SC.7 Skyvan with a Low Profile parachute April 12, 2013 over the Edwards Farm Dropzone. The Low Profile Parachute is intended to replace the BA-22 parachute which is currently configured for use in the AC-130 gunship.


Performance Branch program manager. “The men and women of two of these centers, AFLCMC and AFTC, worked very closely to select and test a low-cost, commercially available emergency egress parachute suitable for the AC-130 community. Within AFLCMC, the Aircrew Performance Branch is responsible to the Air Force Program Executive Officer for Agile Combat Support for acquiring LPPs within cost, schedule and performance requirements and timelines.” “Ultimately, AC-130 crew members needed a chute that was easy to walk around with while they executed their mission and they needed a parachute rig that was lighter and slimmer,” added Tech. Sgt. Joe Monreal, 418th FLTS NCOIC of Test Parachutist Program, who was also a test jumper during the test phase of the LPP. “After carefully going through the research, planning and selection phase in 2010, the LPP eventually proved to be the best alternative.” According to Monreal, the LPP is intended to replace the BA-22 parachute which is currently configured for use in the AC-130 and weighs approximately 40 pounds, depending on the configuration. “In addition to weighing nearly one-half of the BA-22, this new parachute will help save the Air Force money on the purchase price of emergency chutes and on the repacking cycle, but more importantly, it will help save lives of crew members that may find themselves in an egress situation,” added Monreal. With the execution phase beginning in early February 2012, the team of test jumpers, flight test engineers, human factors engineers, rigger support specialists and drop zone safety officers, all said that to get to the completion phase, extensive training had to be completed before any of the test jumpers could don the LPPs. “Before we could perform actual jumps, we first had to accomplish wind tunnel training in Perris, Calif., with the parachutes,” Monreal said. “After this, we outfitted dummies with the LPPs and used a World War II B-25 Bomber and SC.7 Skyvan to drop them out of the bomb bay. Soon after this, we began staging out of the California City airport in order to execute live drops at the Edwards Farm Drop Zone.” During the duration of the test, the team flew approximately 55 sorties with challenges along the way, according to Monreal. “Some minor malfunctions, such as line twists, were experienced, not to mention some hard openings at high speeds and some hard landings, so you can say we all definitely earned our pay,” said Monreal. “But, in the end, we all feel that this new system will help AC-130 aircrew members across the Air Force accomplish the mission more effectively and safely.”

AFMC commander visits Sustainment Center, air logistics complexes by Kim Dawley Air Force Materiel Command Air Force Materiel Command Commander Gen. Janet Wolfenbarger and AFMC Command Chief, Chief Master Sgt. Michael Warner visited the command’s air logistics complexes the week of April 15 for the first time since AFMC declared initial operational capability of its 5-Center reorganization Oct. 1, 2012. The complexes – located at Hill Air Force, Utah, Robins AFB, Ga., and Tinker AFB, Okla. – are part of the Air Force Sustainment Center, headquartered at Tinker. As the reorganization approaches full operational capability this fall, Wolfenbarger was able to visit work centers and see firsthand how AFSC is supporting the AFMC mission and command priorities. “In many instances, General Wolfenbarger’s questions drove us to demonstrate the application of the ‘game plan,’” said AFSC Commander Lt. Gen. Bruce Litchfield, who joined Wolfenbarger on the visits. “But even

more impressive than the demonstrations was the understanding of our folks on how that game plan is improving mission effectiveness and the tremendous opportunity for future improvements.” In addition to Warner and Litchfield, Wolfenbarger was accompanied on her visits by her husband, retired Col. Craig Wolfenbarger. The Air Force authorized MAJCOM Commander spouse travel for base visits because the spouses’ awareness of the issues that affect our military families is critical, enabling them to provide the best advice, guidance and assistance to senior MAJCOM leaders. Their agendas included tours of facilities and programs related to the AFSC, AFMC and Air Force missions, as well as programs related to quality of life. “We were able to observe the AFSC team perform at a very high level,” Litchfield said. “It’s truly remarkable seeing how far we’ve come since IOC.” Wolfenbarger agreed and was impressed with what she saw, noting that – while the substantial budget reductions facing the De-

she said. “We are truly achieving our mission of equipping the Air Force for world dominant airpower, now better than ever. My hat is off to everyone in AFSC, and throughout the command, for the progress we’ve made in a very short period of time operating under this new organizational construct.”

Community News Volunteers needed for Military pets can Branch Science Carnival fetch $300 in ‘Just Say Treat’ contest Branch Elementary Parent Teacher Organization is conducting its annual Science Carnival May 7 and 8 and this year’s theme is on “Energy.” The PTO is looking for volunteers to give a presentation for a group of students (K to 6th grade). If you would like more information, or would like to give a presentation to the children about “Energy,” contact Kalee, Branch Elementary PTO president at or call (661) 733-3775. Air Force photograph by Laura Mowry

Thomas Allen, 412th Civil Engineering Division, educates Branch Elementary School students about where plastic comes from and the importance of recycling, during the fourth annual science carnival last year. Allen’s presentation was one of five that students had the opportunity to learn from. Volunteers are needed for this year’s Branch Elementary Science Carnival May 7 and 8.

It may be a dog eat dog world, but the latest Exchange contest is focusing on the cuddlier side of these furry, feathered and sometimes finicky companions. With the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s Patriot Family “Just Say Treat” contest, a pet picture and 50 words could be worth $300. The Patriot Pet “Just Say Treat” photo/pet contest will launch May 1 online at www. and the Exchange Facebook page aafes.bx.px. Shoppers need only to submit a photo of their pet (or pets) along with a 50-word or less description for a shot at a $300 Exchange gift card. “Pets are a very important part of our lives,” said the Exchange’s Senior Enlisted Adviser Chief Master Sgt. Tony Pearson. “They provide many of us with companionship and friendship, so it’s only fair we take this opportunity to crow and bark about our pets.” For more information and links to enter the Patriot Pet “Just Say Treat” contest, go to or visit the Exchange Facebook page at .

Chapel Corner Gaining Altitude – Growth opportunities for the week This is a weekly segment in Desert Wings to highlight a spiritual focus for the Edwards community: Through our prayers – an opportunity to pray for the needs of our community This week’s request: Pray four our Defense and Service Secretaries that they may have the foresight into providing effective programs for Airmen and families. Through our character – an opportunity to reflect on important issues in our community – Droughts cause the roots of a tree to go deeper and storms cause tree branches to grow stronger. Adversity in a person’s life can do the same, but it depends on a willing attitude. Through our worship opportunities – Right.

The friendly guys down at SUN AUTO FINANCE located at 1023 W. Avenue K in Lancaster, phone 661-945-1767 or visit, are changing that by totally rejecting this theory. They believe that the used car buyer is just as important as the new car buyer by giving the customer the best possible price, quality and service. They specialize in used cars exclusively, and right now, they're dealing wit h a lower prof it margin than anyone in an all-out effort t o help their customers by offering great deals on good, used economy cars. People return again and again when they need an automobile because they know that integrity, quality, and value are always offered here. Buy the safe way! Stop in at SUN AUTO FINANCE and look over the tremendous values in quality used automobiles. We suggest this fine firm for better cars AND better values! Disclaimer about guarantee: Must have valid driverʼs license, proof of residence, and proof of income of at least $1600 a month.
