WHO WE ARE

‘Go For Broke!’ Veteran embodies spirit of Asian Pacific American Heritage celebration Story and photos by Gustavo Bahena, Public Affairs Office NTC and Fort Irwin

“Go For Broke!” That was the motto of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, which fought in the battlefields of Europe during World War II. Serving in that unit, 69 years ago, was Mas Takahashi. Takahashi and his son Scott Takahashi made an appearance at the National Training Center and Fort Irwin Asian Pacific American Heritage celebration, May 8. The 442nd RCT’s motto was a symbol of its members’ desire to outfight their enemies. According to the Go For Broke National Education Center, “Go for Broke” essentially means risking everything on one great effort to win big. The Soldiers of the 442nd RCT needed to win big. They were Nisei American-born sons of Japanese immigrants and they fought two wars: the Germans in Europe and prejudice in America.

In 1944, Mas Takahashi had been living at the Manzanar Internment Camp in California, with thousands of other Japanese Americans during WWII, when he was drafted into the 442nd RCT. He served as a Browning Automatic Rifleman in Italy, France and Germany and fought in the Champaign Campaign and at Gothic Line. Mas Takahashi’s unit became the most decorated unit for its size and length of service in the history of American warfare, according to Go For Broke National Education Center. Approximately 14,000 men served in the 442nd RCT, ultimately earning 9,486 Purple Hearts. The unit was awarded an unprecedented eight Presidential Unit Citations and 21 of its members were awarded Medals of Honor. Members of the 442nd RCT received 18,143 awards. When Mas Takahashi spoke at the ceremony he mentioned that people of Asian ancestry have been here since the early 1800’s and today participate in every facet of life from government and medicine to the

music industry. “And I’m just a small part of it,” Mas Takahashi said. “So, I want to thank all of you for inviting us here.” Scott Takahashi spoke about the differences of his childhood and that of his older generations. Scott witnessed some discrimination incidents, but it did not compare to what his father and grandfather lived through, he said. “I believe, in most cultures, parents want to make a better life for their children and in the Japanese American culture, our parents work very hard for that,” Scott said. “But they also preach honor, hard work, and education.” Scott served with the Army in Vietnam and earned a Bronze Star with a valor device. “If it weren’t for my father’s generation, I would have probably been in a segregated unit,” he said. It’s a bright future for the U.S. military, Scott said.

Mas Takahashi and his son, Scott Takahashi, receive mementos and plaques of appreciation from the command team of 2916th Aviation Battalion – Lt. Col. Fernando Guadalupe (left) and Command Sgt. Maj. William Elliot (right).

Achieving high state of training during current fiscal conditions By Command Sgt. Maj. Lance P. Lehr NTC and Fort Irwin Command Sergeant Major

With the current fiscal uncertainty the Non-commissioned Officer Corps must become more imaginative in how we conduct small unit training opportunities. The focus of the NCO Corps must always continue to be on training our small units for combat. We can do this! As the old adage goes; “when given lemons – make lemonade.” Some will take the current condition of funding the wrong way. Some may even say “we can’t get it done.” But, the fact remains that when our national leaders see we have done our job, the nation turns to the Department of Defense to make our share of cuts to help the nation as a whole. In a peculiar way, we should be proud that our country has the confidence in us to do this. So how do we get after this? How do we maintain our proficiency in a more austere fiscal environment? We get after it by using our imagination. We have the smartest force in the world, and within that force we have the ability to think “outside the box” in a manner that not only keeps our forces trained and ready, but does so in a way that fosters interest to the lowest level. This is actually a great opportunity to professionalize our

young Leaders. It’s a fact that our Soldiers learn best when in small unit groups, and when they can be hands-on. This opportunity is a perfect match for the situation we are currently in. Some will argue that with constraints on actually getting out and moving, shooting, and communicating, we just can’t get to training correctly. Wrong. Our force can get to the 80 percent solution without ever leaving the motor-pool or local training space. Training is only limited by the trainer. We must look at doing ROC drills, walk-through’s, working our dismounting and remounting drills, weapons dry-fire mastery, and the list goes on and on. We must train our brains. We can get to a very high state of training even given the current fiscal conditions. Don’t throw your hands in the air and lament your situation. You have to train with and for what you have. It’s not rocket science, but it does take those willing to use the eight-step training model to train to a level of proficiency using less mileage, class III and class V. Those that have done this can give you great ideas on how to garner great training with very little overhead. Those who have been in the Army since the early-mid 1990’s have faced this, dealt with it, and ended up ejecting Saddam Hussein from Iraq, and Al Qaeda from Afghanistan. That didn’t happen because of poor training, it happened because we used the resources we had to the greatest extent. We trained more

with our brains when times directed it. During this period of fiscal constraint we also have a great opportunity to train our Profession. From standards and discipline to customs and tradition, through military expertise and trust, we must train our Soldiers and Leaders what it means to be a Soldier, along with how to be a Soldier. There are a virtually unlimited amount of resources out there to accomplish this mission, and our national leadership saw the need and took the time (two years), energy (every vested Leader from the Chief of Staff on down), and resources (interviews and forums with 40,000 Soldiers) to determine that’s where we needed to go – it’s now incumbent upon all of us to get the Army there. Start with the Center for the Army Profession and Ethic (cape.army.mil) where you will find training for young leaders prepared and ready to go – zero overhead! Read and teach ADP/ ADRP 6-22. Our Army Leadership doctrine has evolved since 1948 – we know how to do this! Use the resource to its potential. Finally, use the post’s program Desert Strong. Again, an easy to use, easy to prepare, and short class structure that goes straight to the point at the lowest level. Again, it’s not hard to train your troopers in a constrained environment – it just requires that you work smarter – not harder!

STORY TIME: National Training Center and Fort Irwin Command Sgt. Maj. Lance P. Lehr reads the book “The Remarkable Farkle McBride” to children during a Tell Me A Story event at Tiefort View Intermediate School, April 24. Children and parents got a chance to participate in arts and crafts, and during the reading members of the Fort Irwin Middle School band provided musical sound effects. The Fort Irwin Parent to Parent of the Military Child Education Coalition hosted the event. Jessica Hogsed, a military spouse here, took her two young children and said the event was beneficial for kids and parents. “It gets more people involved and gets kids to read more,” Hogsed said.

Denim Day – held in April – is a worldwide effort to make a social statement by wearing jeans as a visible means of protest against misconceptions that surround sexual assault. The campaign in the United States began in 1999 after a rape case was dismissed in Italy in 1998. A judge overturned a rape conviction when he said the victim must have consented to sex because her tight jeans indicated she assisted in the act. By joining the Denim Day campaign, the NTC and Fort Irwin community shows that it cares, Martin said.

“The only way to prevail in this battle is to recognize [the problem] and we’ll take action, on everybody’s part,” Martin said. “And I’m glad that you’re joining with me here today.” The sexual assault problem in the U.S. military has recently been addressed by civilian leadership of the armed forces, including the Commander in Chief. President Barack Obama was briefed by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and military top brass, May 16. A Pentagon Channel video of the meeting shows Obama stating he wants to create

an environment where victims of sexual crimes can step forward without fear. “They got to know that they should have no fear of retaliation, no fear of stigma, no damage to their careers, and certainly no protection for criminals,” Obama said. The President also said that he supports Hagel’s proposed reform that would restrict the ability of commanders to overturn convictions after trial. The next day, during a Pentagon press conference, the secretary particularly emphasized listening to sexual assault victims

who “didn’t feel their commanders were accountable enough [for victims] to be able to come forward and register a complaint, file a complaint, because they thought they would be subject to many things, … and then also having no confidence that anything would be done about their complaint.” Hagel also said that every single servicemember at every level must be alert to the problem and be part of the solution. “Working together, we can and will restore faith in ourselves, and the trust and faith of the American people,” Hagel said.

It’s official. The National Training Center and Fort Irwin has a community garden where you can grow your tomatoes, cilantro and peppers. A ceremony, May 1, commemorated the opening of the Fort Irwin Community Garden, which was built with support from various individuals and organizations. The garden and irrigation system was put together with materials, labor, equipment use, and expertise that were mostly donated. Organizations involved included: Home Depot, CH2M Hill, 916th Support Brigade, the 58th Combat Engineer Company, Directorate of Public Works and Fort Irwin U.S. Army Garrison. Much of the effort was coordinated by Capt. Jose Gutierrez, a nurse corps officer with MEDDAC, here, and president of the Community Garden. Fort Irwin U.S. Army Garrison Commander Col. Kurt Pinkerton thanked the organizations and Soldiers, who helped in the effort to build the unique facility. “As far as I know, we are the first Army installation

to have a community garden, and for that I thank all the Soldiers, our business sponsors, and all the individuals who participated in making this a reality – and be very proud of what you did,” Pinkerton said. The ceremony took place on this installation’s Earth Day celebration, and Pinkerton mentioned that Earth Day principles should be adhered to everyday. “This garden represents the importance of the understanding, as a human race, of taking care of our environment,” Pinkerton said. “Taking care of environment is important as a culture, as a country, as a nation, but it’s even more important as a military, because if we take care of our environment, we lengthen the sustainability of every one of our installations.” Certificates of appreciation were presented that morning, followed by a ceremonial cutting of a ribbon in front of the artistic, metal gate leading to the planters filled with dark-colored earth – all ready for seeding. If you would like to get involved, go to the Fort Irwin Community Garden page on Facebook or call the garden’s vice president Catherine Cook at (760) 382-3415. The plots are located near the athletic field on Inner Loop Road and Barstow Road.

Young patriot gets to be a Soldier for a day at Fort Irwin By Gustavo Bahena Public Affairs Office NTC and Fort Irwin

Adam Wolfe had wanted to be in the Army since he was a small child and his aspiration was realized when he visited the National Training Center and Fort Irwin to spend a day with Soldiers, leadership and Army equipment, May 28. Adam got be a Soldier for a day. After arriving to this military installation, he changed into an Army Combat Uniform with the rank of private first class and after several promotions, he concluded his day as a command sergeant major. The 14-year-old Wolfe is a tripolegic. After a premature birth, a hemorrhage in his brain incapacitated his body below his chest, except for his right arm. He has full use of that arm and he will proudly show its capability. His right arm does almost everything for him, including one handed pushups, which he executed along with Col. Kurt Pinkerton, commander of United States Army Garrison at Fort Irwin.

For more information go to www.irwin.army.mil

At a dining facility on post, Pinkerton had lunch with Adam and his family, which includes his parents and three siblings. The four are actually quadruplets – three boys and one girl. Pinkerton expressed that it’s great to see Adam have a desire to serve his country and to know that his family are teaching their children about the importance of service. Adam’s day at Fort Irwin began with meeting Brig. Gen. Ted Martin, commander of the NTC and Fort Irwin. Martin performed an honorary swearing in for Adam. Adam was then hosted by Soldiers and leadership of the 916th Support Brigade, with the commander, Col. James Kazmierczak, promoting him to sergeant. Soldiers provided him descriptions of M1070 Heavy Equipment Transporter trucks and Mine Resistant Ambush Vehicles used in the brigade’s mission to support the rotational unit training and the installation. He was lifted onto the cab of a HET and driven around. He received a shirt with a graphic and the slogan, “Army Strong, Fear the Beast.” The 2916th Aviation Battalion provided a tour of an air medical evacuation helicopter, a LUH-72 Lakota, at

the post’s helipad. After lunch, Adam and his family were escorted to the training village Ertebat Shar, where they were presented a compilation video

of rotational unit training events. An explanation was provided and questions answered by Capt. Shaun Manley, a public affairs officer

PATRIOT, from page 10 with Vulture Team in Operations Group. That was followed up with a tour of the town. Upon returning to the cantonment area, Adam and his siblings got an opportunity to “shoot” weapons at the Engagement Skills Trainer. The training device uses weapons (M9 handgun, M4 carbine rifle and others) modified to work in a video game environment. Targets are displayed on a screen that runs the length of a wall inside a climate-controlled trailer. The simulated firing gave Adam a chance to feel the recoil of an M4 without having to use ammunition. The final promotion ceremony was administered by Garrison Command Sgt. Maj. Dale Perez. As a final act of honoring the young admirer of all things military, the installation placed a placard at the commanding general’s headquarters building that read: “Command Sergeant Major, CSM Adam Wolfe.”

SOLDIER, from page 1 tion, day and night land navigation, Army Warrior Task/ Battle Drill testing, a written examination, and a board. The board was administered by several command sergeants major from this installation, including Lehr, Command Sgt. Maj. Maurice Jackson (OPS GRP), Command Sgt. Maj. James Higgins (916th Support Brigade), and Command Sgt. Maj. Stephen J. Travers (11th ACR). The board portion can be a grueling question and answer session between young Soldiers and seasoned NCO’s, who can challenge the most prepared Soldier. “It was definitely intense,” Hardcastle said after spending almost an hour with the senior NCO’s. Maintaining her military bearing while sitting still and being flustered was hard, Hardcastle said. She competed and won two previous boards to participate in the post-level event, and said that this one had been the most demanding. She is content in having taken part in the competition. “I wanted to go through this process early in my career,

so I can then direct Soldiers [to do the same],” Hardcastle said. “‘How can I ever ask a Soldier to do something that I wasn’t willing to do myself?’ Win or lose, it doesn’t matter; at least I’ve gone through the process. I know what it’s like, I did my best.” The competition was a difficult event, even a bit stressful, said Holiday. “It’s been a good challenge,” Holiday remarked during competition. Holiday has not been shy about facing a good problem. He enlisted after college, because he admired what military servicemembers do and he look forward to being challenged in the Army. Preparation for the contest proved significant in setting him apart from fellow competitors. “I spent a lot of time reviewing the study materials, going over the warrior tasks and battle drills, both on my own and with my NCO’s – including the weapons and all those tasks – and just working on my PT as well,” Holiday said. Each challenger had a sponsor, a higher ranking sergeant, who coached during the weeks leading up to the competition

and accompanied the Soldier to each event. Sergeant 1st Class Christian Johnson, operations NCO for Eagle Team, assisted Hardcastle by escorting her to the board portion the second day of the competition. “She’s very self-motivated, which made it easier on her supervisors, [because] she continued to get her job done daily, but she also made that time to prepare herself for the board,” Johnson said. “She’s definitely one of the best [sergeants] I’ve known.” Lehr explained that the two Soldiers’ past and continued success is very significant at the local level and puts the Soldiers in a unique position of representing the NTC and Fort Irwin at the next competition. Hardcastle and Holiday are scheduled to contend at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash., June 9-14. They will be striving for the title of I Corps NCO and Soldier of the Year. Winning at I Corps would propel them to the U.S. Army Forces Command competition at Fort Bragg, N. C., later this summer. “This is a big deal,” Lehr said. “This is a feather in anyone’s cap - I’m proud of them!”


Desert Warrior 16 High June 7, 2013 Unit Spotlight

The view least seen By Capt. Ashley Welte Sidewinder Team, Operations Group NTC and Fort Irwin

While many units have traveled the dust-laden grounds of the National Training Center prior to a deployment or for annual training, few have been called upon to perform a far greater task in the Mojave Desert: coaching and mentoring their peers to succeed where others have failed. That view is reserved for the few, who separated themselves from the pack. They are agile, adaptable and passionate. They believe in the greater good. They want the best for their career field. More importantly the Army’s success is important to them. When the Army provided many of us the opportunity to become observers, coaches and trainers, many cringed, as most of us spent time as part of a rotational unit here. We visited the vast deserted land, far from civilization, and vowed to never return. However, as fate would have it, we would return once

again. Only this time it would be to train and ensure the success of others. We would be required to gain an understanding of the desert, a knowledge only surpassed by the ones who have come before us; a knowledge beginning with respect for our surroundings and an even greater admiration for Tiefort Mountain, one of the highest points in the desert. This mountain is more than just a large rock formation rising abruptly from the surrounding desert. It would be a guidepost, used not only to aid in our navigation, but the rotational unit as well. When the rotational units journey through the desert, it is sometimes difficult for those to find their way. As OC/T’s, it is one of our responsibilities to ensure they do not go astray. One pertinent piece of advice we provide to them is to always look to the highest point in the desert, the red blinking light, sitting atop of the mountain. We tell the leaders and Soldiers alike to use it as a reference, to orient from the terrain and utilize the light as a guide, and as long as it is visible they will never be lost. The view of this great mountain is one that is not envied nor is it obvious to the naked eye; it is one of dust, sweat,

and frustration. However, it is one that cannot be emulated or shared. You must be one traveling through the desert to fully appreciate its beauty, and the journey may be difficult, but the view is worth it as the Sidewinder Team from Operations Group learned. The team chose to take on a task that many avoid, ascending Tiefort. Starting at an elevation of 2,454 feet, they arrived at 5,063 feet within three hours. The climb was difficult but the desert prepared them well. Although the climb was hard and more difficult near the crest, they pressed forward to the peak. The team was able to take in the view, one reserved for a select few; the ones who chose to take the path less traveled. Relying on each other to scale the boulders, they made it as a team. The goal was accomplished, ascending the mountain that so many look to as a beacon of reference looking over them and providing them guidance on their journey. As the team looked out over the vast terrain, they were grateful, for all the desert has taught them and all that they had learned. The team was called upon to teach, but what no one explained to them was they too, would be the ones who have learned.

Soldiers from the Sidewinders Team in Operation Group, reach the peak of Tiefort Mountain where they were met unexpectedly by an OH-58 AC Kiowa helicopter at the National Training Center and Fort Irwin, May 8. Tiefort Mountain reaches more than 5,600 feet in elevation, making it the highest peak at the NTC. A blinking red light at Tiefort’s peak is used by many of the rotational training units and Soldiers here as a source to orientate their position because the light can be seen throughout the training area.

Soldiers with Sidewinders Team in Operation Group gather at the summit of Tiefort Mountain after making a three-hour trek to the 5,600-foot peak at the National Training Center and Fort Irwin, May 8. The Sidewinder Team is the NTC’s training team for Brigade Special Troops Battalions within Heavy Brigade and Infantry Brigade Combat Teams. The Sidewinder Team provides expert Observer Coach/Trainers to coach, mentor, train, and provide feedback to BSTB’s in order to prepare them for a full spectrum of combat operations. The team also trains the echelon above brigade enablers such as additional engineer, military police units and military working dog teams. On order, the Sidewinders provide OC/T’s to support Stryker Infantry battalions and engineer battalions. The Sidewinder team also serves as the National Training Center’s lead integrator for collective counter improvised explosive device training. For more information go to www.irwin.army.mil

Public notice of the 2012 Fort Irwin Water Quality Report By Chris Woodruff Water Resources Manager, Environmental Division Directorate of Public Works, NTC and Fort Irwin

Fort Irwin’s Water System is operated under a privatization contract with CH2MHILL. As the system ownership is not transferred to CH2MHILL, compliance responsibilities still reside with the United States Army. Fort Irwin has recently completed the Year 2012 Water Quality Report for Fort Irwin. CH2MHill routinely monitors (on behalf of Fort Irwin) for constituents in the drinking water according to Federal and State laws. The full results of the monitoring for the period of January 1 through December 31, 2012 are available online at http://www.irwin.army.mil/community/ Environment/. This website also contains previous year’s reports. It is important to Fort Irwin that our customers be informed about water quality on Fort Irwin. Muy importante: Este informe contiene informacion muy importante sobre su agua de beber. Traduzcalo `o hable con alguien que lo entienda bien.

The Year 2012 Water Quality Report meets all requirements for the Consumer Confidence Report for 2012. The Environmental Protection Agency and the State of California Title 22 requires that this report be prepared and posted by the community water system on an annual basis to keep the public informed. Fort Irwin’s report contains information on the source of the water and any contaminants that may be present in the source water. For example, last year the Fort Irwin’s Domestic Use (DU) water exceeded the maximum contaminate limits for arsenic and fluoride. The Reverse Osmosis (RO) water provided at small taps and water fountains is safe to drink. This report’s purpose is to improve public health protection by providing educational material to allow consumers to make educated decisions regarding any potential health risks pertaining to the quality, treatment, and management of their drinking water supply. This year’s Water Quality Report along with previous years reports are available on the Fort Irwin website at http://www. irwin.army.mil/Post/Environment/. For questions concerning this report or concerning the water system, contact the Water

Resources Manager with Directorate of Public Works, Fort Irwin at 380-4987. If you have questions concerning Fort Irwin Water System operation contact CH2MHILL at 386-9706.

Quarterly Domestic Water Public Notice By Chris Woodruff Water Resources Manager, Environmental Division Directorate of Public Works, NTC and Fort Irwin

Fort Irwin’s Water System is operated under a privatization contract with CH2MHill. As the system ownership is not transferred to CH2MHill, compliance responsibilities still reside with the U.S. Army. Fort Irwin has two water systems. A Reverse Osmosis or RO System and a domestic use system or DU system. The domestic use (DU) water is higher than the California standard in Fluoride (Maximum Contaminate Levels, MCL = 2 mg/L). The Domestic Use water is also higher than both the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) and State of California standard of Arsenic (MCL 10 µg/L). DU water is intended for use in washing, cleaning, irrigation, and other non potable uses. Both arsenic and fluoride in our water comes from erosion of natural deposits. Fort Irwin treats a portion of the DU water at our reverse osmosis water treatment plant. The Reverse Osmosis treatment process removes contaminates including Fluoride and Arsentic and ensures our water meets all State and Federal Safe Drinking Water standards. The RO water should be used for drinking and cooking. The RO system is visible in housing or your work space as either a RO water tab (shown at left) usually in the kitchen or a water fountain (shown at right). Areas that do not have RO water are provided with bottled drinking water. Fort Irwin is in the process of contracting for design-build of a new Water Treatment Facility. Our goal is that by the end of the For more information go to www.irwin.army.mil

year 2013, we will begin constructing the new water treatment plant. By 2016 all water provided will meet or exceed the Federal and State MCLs. Fort Irwin’s water permit requires Fort Irwin

Use (DU) water provided by Fort Irwin water system has a fluoride concentration ranging from of 0.9 mg/L to 10 mg/L. Dental fluorosis may result in a brown staining and/or pitting of the permanent teeth.

to notify the public quarterly of the following: This is an alert about your drinking water and a cosmetic dental problem that might affect children under nine years of age. At low levels, fluoride can help prevent cavities, but children drinking water containing more than 2 milligrams per liter (mg/L) of fluoride may develop cosmetic discoloration of their permanent teeth (dental fluorosis). The Domestic

This problem occurs only in developing teeth, before they erupt from the gums. Children under nine should use the RO water to avoid the possibility of staining and pitting of their permanent teeth. You may also want to contact your dentist about proper use by young children of fluoride-containing products. Older children and adults may safely drink the water. Drinking water containing more than 4

mg/L of fluoride can increase your risk of developing bone disease. Some people who drink water containing arsenic in excess of the MCL over many years may experience skin damage or circulatory system problems, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer. The Domestic Use (DU) water provided by Fort Irwin water system has a arsenic concentration ranging from 2.6 µg/L to 34 µg/L. For more information, please contact Water Resources Manager, Fort Irwin DPW, at 760-380-4987 or P.O. Box 105085, Bldg 602, Fifth St. Fort Irwin, CA 92310-5085. If you have questions concerning Fort Irwin Water System operation contact CH2MHill 760-386-9706. Some home water treatment units are also available to remove fluoride from drinking water. To learn more about available home water treatment units, you may call the California Department of Health Services Water Treatment Device Unit at (916) 323-5600. Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this public notice in a public place or distribution copies by hand or mail.
