Fort Knox Red Cross Celebrates
Red Crescent Day By Iva Pearlstein
May 8, the birthday of Henry Dunant, founder of the Red Cross, was chosen for Red Cross and Red Crescent Day, first held in 1948. It began as a post-WWII initiative for global peace. Today the event is supported by the International Red Cross, an organization which aims to protect lives and health, as well as to alleviate or prevent suffering. Congress has sanctioned the Red Cross to provide an emergency message service for Military personnel and there are Red Cross workers supporting U.S. service members throughout the world. The Fort Knox Red Cross works hard to support its Soldiers. “The operations on post are near and dear to my heart because we take care of Soldiers,” states May Giulitto, Fort Knox Red Cross Manager.
Wounded Warriors, Soldiers undergoing therapy, and children have the opportunity to benefit from these specially trained dogs. Santa’s Workshop is another special program that provides toys for Military Families that are financially challenged during the holiday season. Through the Summer Youth Volunteer Program, youth starting at age 13 are able to volunteer at various operations on the Installation during their summer vacation. The volunteer opportunities are age appropriate and provide valuable experience for future job searches as well as giving the participants a real sense of accomplishment and responsibility. Volunteer hours are tracked and the youth are recognized for their service at the end of the summer program. Contact the office to arrange an interview. Army Veteran, Tommy Marian, with his Master’s Degree in Education and Army leadership skills, puts his experience to good use as the Coordinator for Helping Hands. He manages the Helping Hands Program and says, “The key to keeping good volunteers is a happy work atmosphere. We all work in harmony here!” Operations have recently been reorganized to accommodate the food, clothing and household goods stored at the building. In addition to non-perishable
Multiple programs run by the Red Cross on Fort Knox support Soldiers and their Families. Giulitto is pleased that this spring her programs on Fort Knox will be able to accommodate Reserve Soldiers that come for monthly drill weekends. Furthermore, Department of Defense (DoD) civilians living in Fort Knox housing will be considered for eligibility on a case-by-case basis. Giulitto relates, “When DoD Civilians come from other locations, they will be able to take advantage of our lending closet before their household goods arrive.” “Because we don't want children or Families to go hungry,” the Red Cross also makes food available through its Helping Hands operations explained Giulitto. She said if there is a good reason, Soldiers below the rank of E5 or in the future, DoD Civilians below G5 would be considered eligible. Each case will be evaluated individually. As a former volunteer herself, Giulitto became committed to the Red Cross when she worked as a dietician and experienced how the organization supported the Soldiers at a Military hospital. She has performed many different jobs for the Red Cross and is the only paid staff member on Fort Knox. “All our coordinators are volunteers,” stated Giulitto proudly. Pet Therapy, offered on Fort Knox since 2011, provides training for dogs and their owners so they can participate in programs serving Soldiers and their Families. 3
Tommy Marian, Coordinator of Helping Hands, stands among the many resources available to those who seek help.
food items - jeans, coats, jackets and Military clothing - are welcomed donations and available at the facility. “We are always in need of volunteers and have no requirements for a commitment to a set number of hours. The minimum age is 13 and even if you just have very limited time, we can still use your help. Time here is well spent,” says Marian. He has dedicated himself to the Fort Knox Red Cross operation because, “I have worn Soldier's boots and in my heart, I am a Soldier and will always take care of Soldiers.”

May is National Hamburger Month and Memorial Day:
Get Ready for Summer! By Ashley Bills
The temperature is on the rise, the birds serenade their sweet sounds, and shorts and sandals have replaced parkas and boots. With the wicked winter in our rear view mirror, May is the month the door to summer is officially opened. Memorial Day is May 26 and is the official start of outdoor cookouts. With Memorial Day cookouts and celebrations planned, it is fitting that May is also National Hamburger Month. The Library of Congress has named Louis Lassen, a Dutch immigrant and owner of the Louis Lunch sandwich shop in New Haven, CT, as the creator of the first hamburger in America when he served a ground meat patty between two slices of bread in 1900. It later became recognized by sailors from Hamburg, Germany, who would name the sandwich after themselves. The Seymour Community Historical Society in Wisconsin also lays claim to be the home of the hamburger. They credit Charles “Hamburger Charlie” Nagreen as the hamburger inventor when he sold a meatball between two slices of bread at the Outagamie County Fair in 1885 so customers could eat while walking.
plan our cookouts, there are a few things you can do to enjoy a great hamburger and lower the calories so you still look great in your swim suit this summer! • • • • • •
Use low-fat ground beef or ground turkey Create a thinner bun by spooning out the middle part of both sides of the bun Eat the patty without the bun If presented with a thick patty, cut it in half down the center Skip or limit the condiments Opt for grilled veggies that are rich in flavor for burger toppings
As we kick off Memorial Day 2014 with BBQ gatherings, it is more than cooking a delicious hamburger. We must remember what this day is all about and appreciate its meaning. This day is meant to remember those who have fallen while fighting for our freedom. This day is dedicated to those service members who have put the lives of others ahead of their own. Thank you for all that you have done and for making this day possible.
Many other names are credited to inventing the hamburger to include Otto Kuase, Oscar Weber Bilby, Frank and Charles Menches, and Fletcher Davis when they created a meat-style sandwich during the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. There is a great debate about who actually invented the hamburger here in America and we may never know who definitively invented the hamburger. The classic hamburger has evolved and proved to become an iconic traditional American dish over the years. While the most popular version of the hamburger is topped with ketchup and mustard, many other versions have been created based on taste. The hamburger can be loaded with many extra condiments to include cheese, lettuce, pickles, onions, bacon, onion rings, and more! The more we top the burger, the more the calories add up.

Bestselling Authors Set to Thrill Library Audiences By Michael Steinmacher
The month of May packs a suspense filled punch for thriller fans at Barr Memorial Library. Two New York Times Bestselling Authors, Greg Iles and Joseph Finder, appear just a week apart in the Authors at Your Library series.
Iles is a member of the literary musical group, The Rock Bottom Remainders. The group, which includes authors Stephen King, Ridley Pearson, Mitch Albom, Amy Tan, and Scott Turow, has performed at numerous venues.
Iles, the #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of The Devil’s Punchbowl, appears May 21 at 12 p.m. to discuss and sign Natchez Burning. Finder visits May 28 at 6 p.m. and will discuss and sign his newest effort Suspicion.
Audiences will barely have time to recover from the excitement of Greg Iles’s appearance when they get to meet Joseph Finder the following week. During his event, Finder will discuss Suspicion, which tells the story of a single father who, in order to protect his daughter, makes a choice with dire consequences. Finder’s appearance at the library follows a visit to the installation’s Wounded Warrior Battalion earlier in the day. Finder, who majored in Russian Studies at Yale, published his first book in 1983 at the age of 24. That non-fiction book, Red Carpet: The Connection Between the Kremlin and America’s Most Powerful Businessmen, inspired his first novel, The Moscow Club, which Publisher’s Weekly called one of the 10 best thrillers of all time.
Iles published his debut novel, Spandau Phoenix, in 1993. The book, a thriller about notorious Nazi war criminal Rudolf Hess, is the first of his 13 New York Times Bestsellers. Iles followed that success with another World War II thriller, Black Cross. Introducing his protagonist Penn Cage, a prosecuting attorney turned politician, in 1999’s The Quiet Game, Iles continued the character’s story arc in 2006’s Turning Angel and 2011’s The Devil’s Punchbowl. Iles published the novella The Death Factory for eBook readers in March, resolving a cliffhanger he left dangling at end of The Devil’s Punchbowl. Iles stated he never expected such a long delay with his next book, but a near fatal car crash in March 2011 left the author with life threatening injuries. Natchez Burning marks the release of his first full length novel in five years and is the first book in a trilogy continuing the story of Penn Cage. Iles’s other novels, which include 24 Hours, The Footprints of God, Third Degree, and True Evil, have been international successes as well, with translations in more than 20 languages and publication in more than 35 countries worldwide. Iles’s 24 Hours was adapted as the film Trapped, which starred Charlize Theron and Kevin Bacon. Iles wrote the film’s screenplay. knoxmwr.com
Finder was vaulted onto The New York Times Bestseller list in 2004 with the release of Paranoia, which focused on corruption and conspiracy in the corporate world. A movie adaptation starring Gary Oldman and Harrison Ford was released in 2013. With 2009’s Vanished, Finder introduced a continuing character, intelligence investigator Nick Heller. The character reappeared in 2011’s Buried Secrets, for which Finder was recognized with a Strand Critics Award for Best Novel. His other novels include Extraordinary Powers, The Zero Hour and High Crimes, which was adapted as a film starring Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman. For Soldiers who attend in uniform, a limited number of complimentary copies of Iles’s and Finder’s books will be available at the events. Copies of Natchez Burning and Suspicion will also be available for sale. For additional information about the events, call (502) 624-1232.

The Kentucky Derby:
The Run for the Roses
By Ashley Bills
“The crowd in the grand stand sent out a volume of voice, and the crowd in the field took it up and carried it from boundary to boundary of Churchill Downs.” - The Louisville Commercial, 1883 The Kentucky Derby is one of the premier horse racing events known across the country and is the first leg of the U.S. Triple Crown. It comes annually the first weekend of May and is a rite of passage for spring. A two-week festival leads up to unveil the prestigious race. The Kentucky Derby Festival considered the biggest party of spring with over 1.5 million people attending over 70 events begins on April 12 and gallops through May 3 when the horses take to the track at Churchill Downs. While you wait for race day, there are plenty of festivities to keep you busy in and around Louisville.
that we know today. “From the fantastic to the sublime, there are no rules or limits when it comes to choosing your Derby hat,” states the Kentucky Derby website. Typically, women wear pastel colored dresses, frilly dresses or bold separates to coordinate with their whimsical hats. Men dress in their Sunday best and get a chance to shine. If you are watching the races from the infield, the rules are a bit more relaxed. Hats can be a bit more extreme and casual attire is permitted such as optional jackets, blazers, vests, collared shirts, sweaters, slacks, golf shorts, dress shorts, khakis, and capris. The Mint Julep is a long-time tradition of The Kentucky Derby. A Mint Julep consists of bourbon, mint leaves, sugar, water, and ice. Every year, the Kentucky Derby sells 79 Mint Juleps for $1,000! These Mint Juleps are made with the finest bourbon available and served in a sterling silver cup with the current year and a fine rider image. It comes with a gold plated straw and gold plated garland of roses at the base of the cup. These cups are sold only on race day to raise money for charities that support retired race horses. The Paddock area is a popular spot at Churchill Downs. The horses are paraded around the paddock area before each race. Spectators can get a close-up glimpse of each horse before they are led out to the track.
Thunder over Louisville kicks off the Kentucky Derby Festival on April 12 with a bang, literally, with a spectacular display of fireworks and a phenomenal air show all rolled into one. In addition, there are countless refreshment and entertainment options available on the ground. The annual Kentucky Derby Festival Marathon and Half Marathon take place on April 19. Sign up for these challenging races as an individual or as a team of up to five runners at www.active.com. The registration deadline is April 14. If you haven’t had the privilege of visiting Churchill Downs during The Kentucky Derby, there are a few things to know ahead of time. Hats, hats and more hats! Hats have been the signature of derby races for centuries. It is a tradition that dates as far back to the Royal Ascot races in the United Kingdom. It was decreed that guests within the Royal Enclosure would follow a modest and stringent dress code. According to www.royalascot.com, male guests would attend in full mourning dress to include a top hat and ladies could not show midriffs or shoulders and must wear hats. A similar idea was adopted here in the U.S. and later became the dress code knoxmwr.com
The Kentucky Oaks Day is held on the Friday before the Kentucky Derby and this year falls on May 2. This race is for 3 year-old thoroughbred fillies and the race covers 1,800 meters. This race is also known as “Lilies for the Fillies” because the winner receives a garland of lilies. It is most popular with folks from Kentucky and is often considered an “administrative holiday.” Some of the fastest horses from around the world take to the track during the Kentucky Derby in an attempt to win the “greatest two minutes in sports.” The prestigious race is known as the “Run for the Roses” as the winner of the Kentucky Derby race receives a garland of red roses. Horses are not the only winners during the Kentucky Derby. Many viewers from all around the world wager on their favorite horses. Wagers begin at $2. Tickets to these races can be pricey; however, general admission tickets with limited access are available the day of the event. Many prefer to view the race on TV in the comfort of their home or attend Derby-themed parties. The Churchill Downs Museum is open year-round for those who can’t attend the races but want to feel the experience of being at the track. Resources: www.churchilldowns.com, www.kentuckyderby.com.
Local Sites to Enjoy By Iva Pearlstein
Around the Fort Knox Community, there are so many interesting sites to see and many wonderful places to explore, that your visitors just might want to extend their stay! Retiree and current Army Civilian at Cadet Command on Fort Knox, Michael Chiara, related, “Our family moved here about 10 years ago while we were still Active Duty. We did not think that this would be where we want to retire, but the area is great and has something for just about everyone!” Historical sites, museums, nature, sport facilities, great food and drink – all this and more can be easily reached from the Fort Knox area. Fort Knox itself has a multitude of enjoyable possibilities for you and your visitors conveniently located on the installation. The General George Patton Museum of Leadership has been recently renovated and updated with smart technology. Showcasing the history of Army leadership at all levels and ranks, it covers Army history from 1775 to recent operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. An interactive tour, obtainable by downloading the Patton Museum App on your smart device will enhance your visit. Lindsey Golf Course, the Fort Knox Water Park, Falls Landing Mini Golf, Houston Bowling Patton Museum Center, and the French Shooting Club are just some of the possibilities offered by Fort Knox Family and MWR. Check the website for details and special events. As the Scoutmaster for Fort Knox Troop 128, Chiara knows all about local nature reserves. “Saunders Springs is for the folks who like to hike. Otter Creek Outdoor Recreation Area is great for hiking, biking, fishing, and horseback riding for those with private access to horses,” suggests Chiara. Boy Scout Joseph Lampe, who is in Chiara's troop, enjoys hiking at Bernheim Arboretum Bernheim Visitor Center and Research Forest. “You can get a great view by climbing to the top of the fire tower located on one of the hiking trails,” recommends Lampe. Car folks can enjoy antique cars at Swope's Cars of Yesteryear Museum in nearby Elizabethtown. By taking a slightly further drive to Bowling Green, you can visit the National Corvette Museum. There you can see over 70 rare and unique Corvettes along with a sinkhole that swallowed eight of them in February 2014! Historical sites are plentiful in the area. The Abraham Lincoln Birthplace, located in Hodgenville is one of Kentucky's National Historical Parks. Visit the museum, take a walking tour and learn about the early years of our 16th President. Also rich in history is Bardstown with its Old Bardstown Monument at Lincoln’s Birthplace
Village and Civil War Museum. The village, a collection of log buildings - all over 200 years old - is a reproduction of an American frontier community before 1800. For those interested in Civil War history, the museum is excellent with a new addition that features the important roles that women played during the Civil War years.
Bardstown Civil War Reenactment
Many diverse attractions can be found when you head to the city of Louisville. The renowned Kentucky Derby is held at Churchill Downs which offers both tours and a museum to visitors along with its horse races. With every tour admission at the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory, guests receive a free mini bat! Just make sure you don't pack it in your carryon bag for air travel or it will be removed at the security checkpoint and become City of Louisville part of the airport's collection. Celebrating its 100th anniversary this year is The Belle of Louisville, constructed during the Steamboat Era and still cruising the Ohio River. In October, a Festival of Riverboats will be held in its honor. These highlights are just a few of Louisville's numerous sites worth seeing. Regarding a local food specialty, the Kentucky Hot Brown, Chiara says, Belle of Louisville “It is a must eat and I insist my visitors have to try it when coming to Louisville!” Kentucky's most famous whiskey - Bourbon - also contributes to the plethora of local attractions. Bourbon distilleries offering tours, a Bourbon Heritage Center, and even the Kentucky Bourbon Festival (an annual September event in Bardstown) are all within easy reach of Fort Knox. However, there is no need to leave post if you want to savor bourbon in true Kentucky style. Fort Knox MWR together with the Brown-Forman Corp. recently opened the Woodford Reserve Room at the Saber & Quill. It is the only Bourbon Distillery branded Woodford Reserve Room in the Army. At the room's debut last May, Joe Bollinger of Brown-Forman stated, "It enables the true bourbon country experience right here on Fort Knox!"

Barr Memorial Library Celebrates Mother Goose Day By Michael Steinmacher
Evidence disputes claims that Mother Goose was a real 17th century figure, the widow of Bostonian, Isaac Goose. The woman, either named Elizabeth Foster Goose or Mary Goose, depending upon the version of the story, moved in with her daughter and entertained her grandchildren with her rhymes. The legend continues that the first publication of Goose’s stories were the result of the work of her son-in-law, a publisher.
Celebrate Mother Goose Day on May 1 with a special retelling of famous fairy tales and rhymes by her “spouse,” Father Goose, at 6 p.m. at Barr Memorial Library. Founded in 1987 by Gloria Delamar, author of Mother Goose: From Nursery to Literature, Mother Goose Day was established to encourage preschool reading and learning through nursery rhymes. The library event, one of many held throughout the United States, celebrates something all people have in common: fairy tales and nursery rhymes. The library program will feature Paul Odenwelder as Father Goose and will engage Family audiences with child participation, music and magic, all intertwined with stories familiar to people of all ages. This event is free and open to all. But who was Mother Goose? Is she real? Imaginary? More than likely, she is an imaginary figure, often depicted as an elderly woman with a tall hat and shawl. Sometimes, she’s a goose wearing a bonnet. While the origins of the name are unclear, the inspiration for her depiction definitely seems to lie in an archetypal, English country woman of considerable age.
However, John Newbery, often lauded as the “father of children’s literature” and for whom the prestigious Newbery Award for children’s literature is named, adopted Mother Goose as his pen name for a collection of famous rhymes which appeared in the 1760s. The Newbery book was printed in England and America. The success of Newbery’s book no doubt contributed to the widespread popularity and awareness of many of the fairy tales and rhymes. For additional information about the Barr Memorial Library program, call (502) 624-1232. Fairy tale books, Mother Goose: From Nursery to Literature, and a host of other books on the topic are currently available at the library.
Mother's Day Gift Ideas By Kerry Weintraub
The most important woman in most people’s lives is their mother. Celebrate your mother, and how much you love her, this year on May 11. Every year some struggle with finding unique gift ideas or different ways to celebrate Mother’s Day that will not break the bank. The first step is to start paying attention and listening. Chances are, she is dropping hints for gift ideas or special things that she would like to do on Mother’s Day. Simple, unique and inexpensive gift ideas for moms of all ages are easy to find with a little bit of forethought and creativity. Hiding love notes from the kids or grandkids placed in unexpected places for her to find, or changing her ring tone to a recording of the children saying “Love You Mom” are quick and effortless ways to show mom you are thinking of her. Instead of buying flowers that will only last a short while, put your creativity to work and make her a paper flower bouquet with notes on each flower of how much she is loved. Find a special something new or old that will bring back a special memory for mom. Schedule a day at the spa and she will come home relaxed and feeling rejuvenated. If your mother is not close by this Mother’s Day, find or make a special card or a special gift and send it to her.
Celebrating with your mother on Mother’s Day doesn’t have to be complicated. Start off her day with a Mother’s Day brunch. Plan a Family game day with all her favorite games stacked and ready to play. Schedule a movie night featuring gourmet popcorn and all her favorite movies. Give mom the day off, pamper her a little and most of all, take care of all the household chores so all she has to do is relax. And don’t forget on Mother’s Day to call or Skype with her to make her day extra special. Fort Knox Family and MWR makes it easy to show mom how much you care with the annual Mother’s Day Brunch at the Saber & Quill. This brunch takes the stress out of planning and proves to your mom how special she really is! Make reservations to take her to the Mother’s Day Brunch at the Saber & Quill through Service Xpress.

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a
Delicious Mexican Feast By Katrina Clark
Cinco de Mayo, or the “Fifth of May” is a holiday celebrated in Puebla, Mexico, to commemorate the victory of the “Outnumbered.” An ill-equipped Mexican Army defeated the invading French Army on May 5, 1862. The victory represented a significant morale boost to the Mexican Army and established a much needed sense of national unity and patriotism. On July 7, 2007, the U.S. Congress issued a concurrent resolution calling on the President of the United States to issue a proclamation calling upon the people of the U.S. to observe Cinco de Mayo with appropriate ceremonies and activities. Some celebrations often extend beyond the actual day to encompass an entire week with festive food, beverages and music. Many will agree, this is one tasty holiday to celebrate!
