ARMY COMMUNITY SERVICE: WHAT TO DO WHEN YOUR SOLDIER IS AWAY by Terrill Alexander

Deployments are inevitable. The stress of knowing your Soldier is away can be overwhelming. Knowing that they may be deploying may double the stress. There are many resources available to help alleviate the stress of Military life. Army Community Service (ACS) has all the resources you need to survive Military life. ACS offers the most comprehensive, hands-on, hassle-free experiences you need to feel empowered. One of the most important things you can do is to identify your needs. If you need help identifying your needs or you feel you need everything, your first call is to Community Information Services. Community Information Services will guide you through the process and get you to the right agency. They have connections to many agencies on and off the installation that can be of assistance. “Just give us a call and we can take it from there,” said Rhonda Randall, the IR point of contact. “Spouses often make the mistake by not calling until things spiral out of control.” Transition/R elocation Support Services is for Family members new to the area. This service includes newcomer orientations, pre-departure counseling, automated destination information, re-integration, and multicultural programming. Relocation Services provides assistance before, during and after a move for Military and their ŇOpportunity Knox

Family members. Get to know your community with a guided tour and information session called Navigating Knox. If you’re a spouse new to the area or you’ve been here for a while and have never had the opportunity to see what the installation has to offer, this is for you. Become a volunteer by contacting the Army Volunteer Corp at ACS. Through volunteering, you will meet new people that may be or have been in your shoes. Volunteers gain the experience of assisting the Army in various positions. Volunteers can add to their resumes by learning new skills and gapping the bridge between work assignments while contributing to the Army mission. Family and MWR offers the Blue Star Card Program. This program offers the Family members of deployed Soldiers many exclusive recreational opportunities as well as discounted fees and services on some of the MWR programs and events. If your Family is facing deployment or extended duty, Army Community Service will be there for you, whatever your needs may be. For more information on ACS and its services, call (502) 6248391/6291 or visit Bldg 5101, Park Road, Fort Knox.

MEET NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS AT FORT KNOX PFCs by Tracy Whitaker

With the start of the New Year and everyone making New Year’s resolutions about losing weight, people start trying to decide what fitness center would work best for them. On average, people spend almost $420 annually on a fitness membership off Post. That is around $35 dollars a month. This is for one fitness center, where it is crowded, limiting your options of where to work out. Most of them don’t even have day care. So you have to find a babysitter, which becomes a hassle. This causes many people to just give up. Fort Knox Physical Fitness Centers are free and you have your choice of four different centers to choose from: Natcher, Gammon, Otto or Smith. In the last year, many new things have happened to the Physical Fitness Centers on Post. Smith PFC was completely remodeled. Smith received an addition of a rock climbing wall. Certification classes are offered in both rock climbing and belay. Smith also has two racquetball courts to have an intense battle with your friends. A new addition was built to include all new cardio, weight and selectorize equipment. Don’t forget about Gammon’s face lift either. Gammon will soon be adding a full service snack bar for your convenience. A child care area was also added to Gammon. Kids on Site day care makes it easy for you to drop your children off for $4 per child, per hour, while

you have a stress free work out. For more information on hours and registration, please contact Kids on Site at (502) 624-7413. Gammon offers a variety of classes at a variety of times. Classes are $3 a class, ten classes for $25, or $40 for unlimited classes for 30 days. Enjoy a boot camp, spin class, or Zumba. We have those classes and many more. Did you get sore from one of the classes? No problem, we now offer massage through Health, Harmony & Nature at Gammon to help ease that pain. Saunas are also available at Gammon, Otto, and Smith. Are you new to the workout world and not sure where to begin? Then hire one of our personal trainers for $13 for 30 minutes or $25 for an hour at any of the four fitness centers. They will show you how to use all the state-of-the-art cardio, weight and selectorize equipment and put you on a program that is right for you. Don’t enjoy working out but still looking to get into shape? Visit Otto, Smith, and Natcher gymnasium for a quick lunch time pickup game or join one of our many intramural sports teams. We have a range of sports you can play from flag football to bowling to soccer. Come check out the Fort Knox Physical Fitness Centers and visit our website at www.knoxmwr.com for more information on classes. www.KnoxMWR.comŇ-DQXDU\Ň

Why We Celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’” – Martin Luther King, Jr. By Jennifer Palalay This is the time of year many of us pick New Year’s resolutions and reflect on the things we can do to improve our quality of life for ourselves and our community. The celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday the third Monday of January is not only a federal holiday, but is it also known as a Day of Service and a good reminder to improve ourselves by helping others. Martin Luther King, Jr., was born on January 15, 1929, in Atlanta, Georgia. King was a Baptist minister who championed the civil rights movement and protested racial discrimination through non-violent civil disobedience. He was assassinated on April 4, 1968 in Memphis, Tennessee. Fifteen years after his death, President Ronald Reagan signed a bill establishing the third Monday of every January as a federal holiday to honor King and his efforts. This national day of service is observed as a “day on, not a day off.” According to the website mlkday.gov, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. federal holiday will be observed on January 21, 2013. “This milestone is a perfect opportunity to honor Dr. King’s legacy through service. The MLK Day of Service empowers individuals, strengthens communities, bridges barriers, creates solutions to social problems, and moves us closer to Dr. King’s vision of a beloved community.” There are many opportunities in our community to serve. According to Yolande Jackson-Smalls, the Fort Knox MWR Army Volunteer Corps Manager, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service is a great way to unite and work with other volunteers to make a difference in our community. “Volunteers all over the nation connect with organizations and agencies to provide assistance with specific projects. Volunteers who would like to serve the local community in honor of this great observance may contact agencies like the Hearts of Hope Homeless Shelter which will be the first homeless shelter in Hardin County at (270) 982-3030. Extend yourself and lend a helping hand!”

FRG LEADER IS VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH By Tracy Whitaker

Family Readiness Groups, or FRG as many in the Military world know it, is a command sponsored organization of Family members, volunteers, Soldiers and civilian employees associated with a unit. FRGs were established to provide activities and support to enhance the flow of information, increase the resiliency of the unit Soldiers and their Families, provide practical tools to adjusting to Military deployments and separations, and enhance the wellbeing and esprit-de-corps within the unit. Running a FRG for a unit takes a great deal of hard work, patience, compassion, and understanding. Lynette Anderson is the FRG leader for 1/26 Infantry Charlie Company and possesses these characteristics and has been chosen as January’s Volunteer of the Month. Anderson served seven years in the Military and has been stationed in Korea, Germany and all over the U.S. She is married to Chase Anderson and has three boys: Darius (25), QuintLYNETTE ANDERSON en (21), Ezra (2), and a two year-old grandson, Devaria. She loves to spend time with her Family, gardening and refinishing furniture. Anderson enjoys volunteering because she doesn’t like to see people in need. “I have been where some of these Families are now, wondering how I was going to buy Christmas for my children or wondering if I had enough money to buy groceries until the next payday. Seeing the smile on their faces, knowing that at least for that moment, everything will be ok, makes it all worth it,” said Anderson. Anderson has been the FRG leader for the 1/26 Infantry Charlie Company since May 2010 and has devoted over 228 hours. She has organized numerous fundraisers, meetings and also created the battalion holiday card display at Brooks Field. Anderson has pulled this FRG together, not only for events, but also for friendship and support. Tamara Langley, the Community Liaison of Operation Homefront, recently wrote a special correspondence to 1/26 Infantry Battalion and 3rd Brigade detailing the accomplishments and hard work of Anderson. “Mrs. Anderson tries hard to make every Soldier and Family member feel welcome and overcome the stigma of the word “FRG.” She cares with her heart about the Charlie Company Families. She is one of the most genuine people and greatest FRG leaders I have come across. I have been involved with the FRG since 2009. I truly can say she’s the most caring and dedicated spouse I have met here. Charlie Company 1/26 Infantry couldn’t have had a better leader for our Families and a great role model for our wives,” states Langley. www.KnoxMWR.comŇ-DQXDU\Ň


On Thin Ice

by George Wyatt

It’s easy to get that kid-like feeling at the sight of the glittering beauty of snow and ice. I still find myself getting excited about the prospect of snow. However, I’ve also learned that snow and ice are not always so grand if we fail to take time to observe a few precautions. My mother used what I think is an old southern phrase “all stoved up” to describe a myriad of sore, painful, or aching bones and muscles resulting from overwork or an accident. My hope is that you will be able to protect yourself and prevent being “all stoved up” this winter because of a fall on snow and ice in the winter wonderland that is surely on its way.

Although statistics vary among national recordkeeping agencies, it is accurate to say thousands of Americans become victims of snow and ice-related falls each year. These accidents result in days, months and even years of pain and agony and in some cases, result in permanent disability and death. Typical injuries related to these type falls include pelvis, arm, elbow and wrist fractures. Other common injuries include concussions, facial bone fractures and broken teeth. It’s easy to prevent these types of accidents with a little awareness and some precautions. One of the simplest safety measures you can take is wearing the proper shoes for the weather conditions. Common sense should tell us all that smooth leather or plastic-soled shoes are not conducive to successful foot navigation over packed snow and ice. Instead, wear • Thick clothing, gloves and hats will help a nonslip rubber

IF YOU FALL

cushion the impact on your body. • Try to relax the muscles in your body when you fall. • If you’re falling forward put your arms in front of your face and turn head left or right. • If you’re falling backward tuck your chin into your chest to minimize the whiplash effect on your neck and the back of the head. If possible, put your hands behind your head. • If you fall sideways, allow your upper arm to take the impact. • Don’t use the hands and arms for anything other than protecting the face and head during a fall.

or neoprene-soled shoe or boot that has grooves. Rubber overshoes or boots are fine if they have similar specifications. If you must wear street shoes to work, consider carrying them with you and changing when you get inside the building. The same logic applies to women with respect to heels. Another thing to consider is the temperature of the soles. The heater in your car warms your shoes to a comfortable temperature. When you reach your snow-packed or icy parking place, human nature tells you to fling open the door and make a mad dash to the warmth inside. Here’s what’s happening when you do this: The warm shoe sole hits the ice and immediately melts the surface, creating a thin pool of water between the surface and the shoe and sets up a treacherously hazardous condition. Instead, plant your feet firmly on the icy surface while still sitting in the car seat for a few moments until the shoe temperature cools down and doesn’t pool water under your shoes. Maintain a good two-hand hold on the car door when you get out and establish firm footing before walking. You should dress for the occasion. Winter conditions call for more clothing; in addition to providing warmth, thick bulky layers will provide protection in case you do fall. Consider a good cold weather hat, thick knit hat or ski hat for warmth and head protection. Gloves, scarves, and earmuffs are also useful. Fresh snow is usually easy to traverse without falling, but conditions such as partial melting and packing of the snow can change the situation in short order. Freezing rain, sleet and those wintery mix conditions can be particularly hazardous. Remember to treat walking surfaces that look wet or are shaded by trees or buildings as if they’re still frozen, even if you have observed melting in other areas. There are some simple and helpful techniques to remember when walking on packed snow and ice. Choose designated walkways, preferably walkways that have already been de-iced. Now is not the time to be taking shortcuts across snow banks and negotiating untraveled areas where hidden obstacles may lurk under the snow and ice. In some cases, walkways may be extremely slippery from melting and refreezing or other weather phenomenon in which the best option for traction and ease of travel could be the grassy area adjacent the walkway. Hopefully you will find something that I have mentioned useful for this and future winters to help keep you safe when the skies open up to freezing rain, sleet, snow or the wintery mix.

New Year’s Resolutions, where did they start, what are they, and what are some tips for sticking with it. New Year’s Resolutions started back in the Babylonian days. The Babylonians would make promises to their gods each year that they would return borrowed objects and pay debts. As time passed, different cultures put their own twist on making resolutions. Today, instead of making the promise to a god, it is more of a personal commitment to make changes to improve certain areas of one’s life. For example: losing weight, saving money, going back to school, or volunteering more. Here are five tips to keep up with those resolutions. Tip 1: Aim low. A large goal sounds great on paper, but if you don’t reach it, discouragement sets in and it is game over. Set smaller goals which can be attained easier. This will keep the momentum going. Tip 2: Don’t overload yourself with a laundry list of resolutions. Pick the most pressing or most important to you and stick with that one. Tip 3: Don’t keep your resolutions a secret. Share what your goal is and your friends and family will be cheering you on to stick with it. Tip 4: Reward yourself for working so hard and following through with the resolution. Tip 5: Set a date to start the resolution. No one said it has to start on January 1st. Make it for a time that will work for you. Just make sure when that day comes you start. www.KnoxMWR.comŇ-DQXDU\Ň
