Air Force transitions to a single combat uniform Secretary of the Air Force Public Affairs

WASHINGTON, D.C. (AFNS) — Air Force leaders announced the service will move to a single combat utility uniform, adopting the Operational Camouflage Pattern, or OCP, already in use by the Army and Airmen in combat zones and in certain jobs across the Air Force. Starting Oct. 1, 2018, Airmen who have serviceable OCPs may wear the uniform, and Airmen can purchase OCPs at Army and Air Force Exchange Services at the following locations: Aviano Air Base, Italy; Charleston Air Force Base, South Carolina; Shaw Air Force Base, South Carolina; and MacDill Air Force Base, Florida. These initial locations will allow uniform manufacturers to produce additional stocks for other locations, eventually outfitting the total force in the coming months. The service will fully transition to OCPs by April 1, 2021. See UNIFORM page 6 (U.S. Air Force graphic)

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. – Cadets from the U.S. Air Force Auxiliary Civil Air Patrol assemble a pneumatic actuated rocket at Peterson Air Force Base, Colo., May 9, 2018. The cadets were setting up this display for Peterson AFB STEM Day.

By Cameron Hunt 21st Space Wing Public Affairs

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — The 21st Space Wing hosted an outreach program geared toward youth. The outreach program is called Peterson STEM Day, which was created as a way to spark a young person’s interest in science, technology, engineering and math.

The goal was to open the possibilities of a career based in one of these disciplines and to teach youth how STEM is part of the Air Force culture. “The Air Force is founded in the STEM skillsets,” said Col. Timothy Ryan, Mission Support Group commander. “Our goal today was not necessarily to recruit the students into service, but to give them a peek inside how the STEM skillsets apply in the Air Force.”

The event was held at Patriot Park, Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado, May 9, 2018, and catered to about 250 students and teachers from four local middle schools in Harrison School District 2: Fox Meadow Middle School, Mountain Vista Charter School, Panorama Middle School and Carmel Middle School. “The most important thing that I want to stress here See STEM Day page 9

21ST SPACE WING

COMMANDER’S CORNER

Resistance is futile PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — I’ve had the honor and privilege of being a Knight for just over a month. It’s been an exciting month of change: change for me and change for the 721st Communication Squadron. These changes can be lumped into three categories: self-initiated, forced or status quo. However, no matter how change presents itself, it is ultimately about how we respond to (or even embrace) the change in our lives. I had been looking forward to joining the Mountain Comm team of the 721 CS for months leading up to the assumption of command. It was the excitement of the new opportunity, learning a new mission, and leading a new team. Many of us joined the military for those exact reasons, even to the point when we’ve been in the job or place for a few years, we naturally get a bit stir crazy and anxious for what’s next. While these changes come courtesy of our Air Force, I consider these self-initiated changes since we all chose to serve. Self-initiated changes are typically ones we look forward to. For the 721 CS, it has also been a month of change. The Mountain Comm team is adjusting to that new guy in the front office. That new guy brings a new perspective and philosophy. I’ll also go out on a limb and say that the new guy brings his own quirks and idiosyncrasies. Right … that’s me and I’m confident

F R E E

Maj. Tom Hamlyn 721st Communication Squadron on that last piece. These forced changes can be uneasy; changes that can make us anxious. Amongst all the change there are also constants, both inherent and by choice. Gen. Mark A. Welsh III, then Commander, U.S. Air Forces in Europe, encouraged a group of new squadron commanders to not change a thing. He explained that, while the new squadron commanders would all be eager to go in to their new squadron and change things to try and make a name for themselves, there is already enough other change in the Air Force. He encouraged them to be a constant in the otherwise changing world around their Airman. For me, these constants are family, faith and friends. For others, it may be routines. Our lives and our Air Force are in a nearly constant state of change. For the Knights and our wingmen in

C H E C K I N G

Here. There. Everywhere.

Air Force Space Command, we continue to transform to dominate the high ground of space. Our adversaries are capable of contesting our national power in space and cyberspace and they are forcing us to change our tactics and deliver capabilities to ensure we’re the predator, not the prey. This May, the wing will celebrate its 26th birthday. Over the past 26 years, we transitioned from the end of the Cold War to ensuring we are executing global capabilities to defend our homeland and secure space for our nation and its allies. How about in your life? What sort of changes did you initiate? What changes were forced? Where were you a constant for others? When I was a kid, my dad gave me some great advice that still resonates with me today. He said, you often can’t control what happens to you, but you can control with how you respond. With the changes around or in front us, we can choose to look forward to them, finding the excitement and opportunity the change offers. In the end, change in and with the military is a guarantee. “Resistance is futile,” as the Borg would say (yes, I know using a Star Trek quote on May the 4th is heresy). So I challenge you with two things. First, choose to respond to change positively and embrace the excitement and opportunity. Second, be a constant in the lives of those around you.

Employment opportunities increase for military spouses By Robb Lingley 21st Space Wing Public Affairs

(U.S. Air Force photo by Robb Lingley)

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. – Amanda Bainton, Military Officers Association of America Military Family Initiative Development executive director, addresses military spouses at The Club on Peterson Air Force Base, Colo., May 8, 2018. Military spouses at Peterson AFB attended a one-day symposium to learn about tools, education and resources they need to maintain a career.

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — Military spouses at Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado, attended a one-day symposium at The Club, May 8, 2018, to learn more about tools, education and resources they need to maintain a career. Spouses face many obstacles when it comes to employment because duty stations change every few years. “Military spouses are facing roughly a 20 percent unemployment rate, which is ridiculous,” said Amanda Bainton, MOAA Military Family Initiative Development executive director. “They’re also at a 90 percent underemployment rate, which means they’re overqualified for the job they currently have while making about 40 percent less than their civilian counterparts.” One of the issues discussed was employment at a national level to ease the burden and eliminate the obstacles spouses face in seeking meaningful employment while married to a military member. “MOAA has helped make a difference for military spouses on a national level,” said Bainton. “Today we made a call to the White House and learned President Trump had signed an Executive Order to help military spouses with employment on the federal side.” The Executive Order will broaden the noncompetitive hiring authority for military spouses, allowing each government agency the authority to hire anyone on the spot. All federal departments will be encouraged to use this to the greatest extent possible for military spouses and will be required to report back to the president annually. “We’re in a day and age where families need more than one income to survive,” said Bainton. “This isn’t the military days of old where people

could get by on just one income and have a family. Even if some spouses wanted to stay home, which most don’t, there are some financial challenges that military families face.” Military spouses in attendance were provided with assistance in networking, covering up gaps in their resumes and translating volunteer experience into applicable skills by MOAA. “We’re in Washington D.C. and our goal is for spouses to know that if they need any assistance they should go to the Airman and Family Readiness Center on Peterson AFB,” said Bainton. “The AFRC can also introduce them to other resources that they may not have known about that can help compliment their efforts.” Hiring Our Heroes was also at The Club to provide military spouses with career development and networking opportunities in military communities around the world. “We’ve nicked down veteran unemployment below the national average,” said Megan Paone, HOH director of community engagement. “The military spouse underemployment rate hovers between 16 and 20 percent, so we really want to capitalize on our small businesses and our bigger employers so we can keep our military spouses employed.” Paone said the tools that spouses gain and the knowledge that they receive can be used throughout their career. “The announcement today from the White House is huge,” said Paone. “They’re leveling the playing field for military spouses in terms of opening up priority placements and hiring. Once we have that type of leadership in place, others will start to follow, especially in the military spouse working world.” For more information on MOAA contact Rhonda Sargeant, AFRC career focus manager at 719-556-6141 or email her at rhondasargeant.1@ us.af.mil.

TRICARE provider types: Understanding your options TRICARE Communications

FALLS CHURCH, Va. — You can visit several types of providers when you need care, regardless of your TRICARE plan. It’s important to understand your provider options because who you see impacts both your out-of-pocket costs and filing a claim. Take command of your health and your TRICARE health care benefit by learning about your provider options. With TRICARE, a provider is a person, business, hospital or pharmacy that provides health care. At a minimum, TRICARE must authorize and certify all providers. The regional contractors must also verify them. This approval process makes them TRICARE-authorized providers. If you see a provider that isn’t TRICARE-authorized, you’ll pay the full cost of care (an exception may apply if you experience a life-threatening emergency). There are two types of TRICARE-authorized providers: network and non-network. The two stateside regional contractors (Humana Military and Health Net Federal Services, LLC) and overseas contractor (International SOS Government Services, Inc.) have established networks of providers. These TRICARE network providers accept payment from TRICARE as the full payment for any covered health care services you get, minus your required out-of-pocket costs, when appli-

cable. They also file claims for you. If overseas, TRICARE network providers are only required to file claims for those in TRICARE Overseas Program (TOP) Prime and TOP Prime Remote, as well as active duty services members on leave or temporary duty. You may also see a non-network provider (also called out-of-network). These providers don’t have a signed agreement with the regional contractor. There are two types of non-network providers: participating and nonparticipating. A participating provider accepts payment from TRICARE as the full payment for any covered health care services you get, minus any out-of-pocket costs. They also file claims for you. If overseas, they may file claims for you. Nonparticipating providers provide neither of those services. If stateside, they may charge you up to 15 percent above the

TRICARE-allowable charge. for services. Outside the U.S. and U.S. territories, there may be no limit to the amount that nonparticipating providers may bill, and you’re responsible for paying any amount that exceeds the TRICARE-allowable charge. If you visit a nonparticipating provider, you may have to pay the provider first and file a claim for reimbursement later. If you’re enrolled in a TRICARE Prime option, your primary care manager and specialty care providers will likely be a military hospital or clinic, or a civilian network provider. To see civilian specialists or non-network providers, you’ll need prior authorization from your regional contractor or you’ll pay more out of pocket under the point-of-service option. With TRICARE Select, you manage your own health care and may get care from any TRICARE-authorized provider. you choose without a referral. You still may need prior authorization for some services. Your outof-pocket costs vary based on the type of provider you see. When you seek care, you have choices. Knowing which type of provider is best suited for the type of care you need and your coverage will help you save money. It will also allow you to take advantage of your full benefit. Visit www.tricare.mil to learn more about your plan, costs and coverage. You can also view stateside and overseas provider directories.

Reserve Key Spouse named AF Spouse of the Year By Staff Sgt. Frank Casciotta 302nd Airlift Wing Public Affairs

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — The Air Force Reserve Command’s 960th Network Operations Squadron Key Spouse, here, was named the 2018 Air Force Spouse of the Year by Armed Forces Insurance and Military Spouse Magazine. “I almost cried when I found out,” said Kristen Christy, the first spouse of an Air Force reservist to receive the honor. “It is such an honor and this isn’t about me. It’s about the work for the military families.” Since taking on the role of the 960th NOS Key Spouse three years ago, Christy has earned a reputation for her enthusiasm building relationships and supportiveness for the squadron’s reservists. The Key Spouse Program is an official Air Force program designed to enhance readiness and build unit cohesion outside the workplace. “She has worked hard to give us a sense of community,” said Lt. Col. Anita Edmonds, the 960th NOS commander. “She’s always there for families. Whether they are struggling with personal issues, or brining in a new baby. She even reached out to me and let me know about free resources for my children while my husband was deployed.” Christy has overcome hardships in life and found success despite them. Just before her 16th birthday, Christy, now a senior proposal specialist at a local defense contracting company, suffered a stroke. “Three weeks after playing a world-class tennis player and two weeks after I won the golf championship for all (Department of Defense) high schools in Germany,” Christy said. “I experienced a massive stroke on my right, which is my dominant, side.” Doctors told her parents she may not live and if she did that she would never walk again and possibly have extensive brain damage. It took Christy a year and a half to learn to walk again and now writes with her left hand. “This is my silver lining,” said Christy, referring to her shock of white hair across her bangs. “It grew in my stroke. It reminds me whenever I look in the mirror that there is a silver lining to everything. We may not know what that is

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — Kristen Christy, who was named Air Force Spouse of the Year, speaks with Col. James DeVere, the 302nd Airlift Wing commander, during an Area Chiefs of Staff forum March 21, 2018. Christy competed against 800 others to be named the 2018 Air Force Spouse of the Year by Armed Forces Insurance and Military Spouse Magazine. Christy is the 960th Network Operations Squadron Key Spouse and married to Tech. Sgt. Sean Lange, 960th NOS boundary technician. for a while, but it gives me hope.” Taking that outlook on life no doubt played a role when she faced one of the toughest challenges life can bring. Christy lost her first husband to suicide 10 years ago after he returned from a deployment. She has since dedicated herself toward suicide prevention programs. Christy’s compassion and ability to find silver linings is not limited to her husband’s squadron, though. She currently sits on six volunteer and community group boards working to gather resources and help make changes affecting the military community as a whole. Currently, Christy is the Colorado Springs Chamber of Commerce & Economic Development Corporation Military Affairs Council vice chair. The Military Affairs Council

works to support local military installations and strengthen their relationship with the surrounding community and associated industries. Christy is married to Tech. Sgt. Sean Lange, a 960th NOS boundary technician, who she met on an online dating site. They have been married four years. According to the magazine’s press release, Christy competed against 800 other nominees to earn her award. This month, she will find out if she will be named Military Spouse of the Year competing against five other finalists from other military branches. The 960th NOS is a geographically separated Reserve unit stationed here belonging to the 960th Cyberspace Operations Group, at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas.

Air Force leaders decided to transition to the OCP following feedback from Airmen that it is the best, battle-tested utility uniform available. It will also eliminate the need to maintain two separate uniforms — one for in-garrison and one for deployments — and it is a visible reminder of the service’s identity as a joint warfighting force, Air Force officials said. “We looked at all utility uniforms currently in our inventory to find the best-of-breed,” said Chief of Staff of the Air Force Gen. David L. Goldfein. “We spoke to and listened to Airmen on this, and the OCP was the clear choice.” “The uniform works in all climates — from Minot to Manbij — and across the spectrum of missions we perform,” Goldfein added. “It’s suitable for our Airmen working on a flight line in Northern Tier states and for those conducting patrols in the Middle East,” he said. More than 100,000 Airmen have been issued or are already wearing OCPs or equivalent twopiece flight suits — from Airmen deployed to Air Forces Central Command, to those serving in Air Force Special Operations Command, and most recently, aircrews in Air Mobility Command and defenders in Air Force Global Strike Command.

Preserving service & squadron identity As with the Battle Dress Uniform, or BDU, worn by all services until about 10 years ago, the OCP Airmen wear will have distinctive Air Force features. The name tape and Air Force lettering will be a spice-brown color, and T-shirts and belts will be tan. Most rank will also be in spice-brown thread. Squadron patches will also be worn on the OCP, said Goldfein. Bringing back squadron patches was among the recommendations made by Airmen as part of the ongoing effort to revitalize squadrons. “Unit patches express squadron identity and heritage — something our Airmen are incredibly proud of and want to celebrate,” he said. Unit patches and special functional identifiers (Security Forces, Fire, Explosive Ordnance Disposal, Tactical Air Control Party, Combat Controller, etc.) will be attached to Velcro fabric on the sleeves. All patches will be in subdued colors; headquarters patches and the U.S. flag will be worn on the right shoulder, and unit patches and authorized duty identifiers will be worn on the left shoulder.

Airmen can find guidance for proper wear of the uniform in the coming months via an Air Force Guidance Memorandum, followed by updates published in AFI 36-2903.

Proven for better fit and functionality Feedback from the force indicated Airmen find the OCP more functional — from the slanted, Velcro chest pockets to the easily-accessible shoulder pockets. Female Airmen have made it clear that this uniform is a better fit, as well. “The Army has done considerable work to make the OCPs a better fitting uniform for female service members,” said Maj. Gen. Bob LaBrutta, director of military force management policy, deputy chief of staff for manpower, personnel and services. “The uniform comes in 20 female sizes and 37 unisex sizes. Female Airmen, currently issued the unisex uniform in U.S. Air Forces Central Command, report a better fit and higher morale as a result.” Enlisted Airmen should start to see an increase to their annual clothing allowances starting Oct. 1, 2018. “Many of our Airmen already have this uniform from their numerous deployments, so they will be able to make the transition easily,” said Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force Kaleth O. Wright. “For other Airmen, we must provide enough time for their clothing allowance to fund the items to avoid out-of-pocket expenses.” Effective April 1, 2019, Airmen can purchase the uniform at any AAFES store that carries them and AAFES online services will open purchases to Airmen around October 2019. The schedule will be updated monthly on the AAFES and Air Force’s Personnel Center websites. The delay in availability allows the supply chain to produce and field enough uniforms, boots and other associated uniform items to meet both Army and Air Force requirements. Enlisted Guard and Reserve Airmen will receive the new uniform through their unit’s clothing replacement procedures. The Air Force will also outfit Basic Military Training, Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps, and Officer Training School starting October 1, 2019. “This celebrates joint warfighting excellence as OCPs will become the joint combat uniform for Airmen and Soldiers while patches and nametapes will identify our respective services,” Goldfein said. “We’ll maintain our distinctive Air Force uniforms in blues, service dress, mess dress, and PT gear.”

Space Situational Awareness is Space Battle Management By Maj. Erin Salinas 20th Space Control Squadron Detachment 1

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — Space Situational Awareness has long been synonymous with detecting, tracking, and identifying all artificial objects in Earth orbit otherwise known as catalog maintenance. Today, space is more congested and contested than ever before, and threats against U.S. capabilities grow every day. While catalog maintenance is a part of the SSA mission set, SSA enables the continuous preparation of the battlespace in order to fight and win a war in space. Simply put, SSA is Space Battle Management. Like the air domain, there is a daily mission of air traffic control and a wartime mission of Air Battle Management. To ensure effective SSA, sensors need access to intelligence, flexible tasking, rapid decision making, and integration between platforms. SSA sensors have long operated in a relatively static tasking construct, without detailed intelligence, to give operators understanding of why they are tasked against a particular object. With proper understanding of an adversary’s satellite characteristics and capabilities, operators achieve better mission planning to engage their weapon system in characterizing, recognizing, and responding to various space threats. Being engaged also motivates and inspires operators to come up with better solutions to tactical problems.

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — Space Situational Awareness has long been synonymous with detecting, tracking, and identifying all artificial objects in Earth orbit otherwise known as catalog maintenance. Today, space is more congested and contested than ever before, and threats against U.S. capabilities grow every day. No one understands the weapons systems better than those who operate it daily. Sensors need flexible tasking that provides the operator with the freedom to decide how to best employ their weapons system. Tasking orders need T:10”

to clearly state the desired effect or objective. For example, the objective may be that an area near a high value asset needs to be cleared. Clearing is when all objects in an area of space are determined to be known. With a complete understanding of the problem set, operators can be empowered to help solve it. Integration and working relationships between different sensor platforms optimizes Space Battle Management. Different sensors may complement each other and hand-off important target data. Combining information from several sensors enables command and control centers to make better decisions. For example, if an uncorrelated target is found by a ground-based radar, Ground Based-Electro-Optical Deep Space Surveillance, GEODSS, could follow up on the targets and provide additional data. Hand-offs between electro-optical sensors, radars, and on orbit platforms can ensure high priority targets aren’t lost. As the threats against US capabilities in the space domain continue to grow, Space Battle Management becomes much more than just catalog maintenance. It is the overall understanding of what is occurring in the domain. To ensure effective weaponeering of SSA sensors, operators need to be empowered to act through the incorporation of intelligence, flexible tasking, rapid decision making, and platform integration. Space is our ultimate high ground; we must keep watch.

STEM Day From page 1

is there are a lot of different career fields out there that utilize STEM disciplines,” said Ryan. “You don’t have to be super smart to do them, you just have to be dedicated to that particular field of study. If you can do that, you can be successful and the world can be your oyster.” Display booths were set up at Patriot Park, where kids could view and interact with displays while learning about different career fields based on STEM disciplines within the Air Force. Cadets from the U.S. Air Force Auxiliary Civil Air Patrol had a booth at STEM Day. Cadets study leadership, aerospace, fitness and character development. CAP cadets can also earn college scholarships in science and aeronautics. At their booth, the cadets demonstrated skills in toy rocket assembly, and how a hydraulic actuation system works. Cadets also worked with students in an experiment to simulate the effects of aerospace dynamics in aviation. The 21st Civil Engineer Squadron, Explosive Ordinance Disposal unit presented two types of remote controlled disposal robots and their capabilities. Tech. Sgt. Kyle Massengale, 21st Civil Engineer Squadron, explosive ordnance disposal unit, stressed how essential technology is a critial element to the success of their jobs and how robots take the risks that humans no longer have to. “We use the robots to look at packages; sometimes to even tear them open or to just tear the package apart,” said Massengale. “Since we don’t physically need to be near the robot, there’s no physical danger to personnel. We can operate the robot remotely from up to a mile away,” Among the presentations and displays at the park, the middle school students were able to exchange ideas and pose questions to mentors from STEM career fields. After, they were given a tour of the Peterson Air and Space Museum. While there, students learned about vintage aircraft and space technology. They were also able to see how past technology differs from the technology of today.

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — Being a resilient Wingman is knowing yourself and being able to communicate clearly and effectively. Sometimes, we have something to say, but the thoughts may be difficult to put into words. Writing is a tool to sift through issues going on in your life, putting thoughts down on paper can help give direction to personal goals, define core values, and improve communication with others. Molly and Ann, writers from a local non-profit organization, spent an evening with Airmen at the Cyber Café, explaining how the written word is as easy as putting pen to paper and simply writing. “There is no wrong way to write,” said Ann, as she guided Airmen through the process. Through laughter and shared artistic expression, the Airmen told their stories and connected with one another. They even wrote a group poem:

‘I’d like to think about Something Else’ Anything else Besides me Can’t go nowhere else! Does Mom know yet? Ever wonder why you didn’t tell her? Forget it, she wouldn’t want to know. Go home, little moe! Have to go now… I have two phones Jack and Jill went down the hill… Knowing they wouldn’t find any water.

FALLS CHURCH, Va. — On May 8, 1918, U.S. Army Aviation Branch, Col. Theodore Lyster created the first ever course for flight surgeons, at the Medical Research Laboratory, Hazelhurst Field, N.Y. With World War I ongoing, Lyster’s course was initially still informal, as he was creating a new medical specialty. Lyster saw the need to support pilots’ health and well-being and address the physiological effects on the human body of decreased atmospheric pressure caused by increased altitude. Flight surgeons would oversee flyers’ health and physical fitness and serve as their trusted advisor. Three young otologists (ear doctors), Capt. Robert Hunter, Capt. John Gallagher, and Lt. Claude Uren, were the first to graduate. Hunter was the first to report for duty, five days later. In May 1919, the Army designated Lyster’s informal pro-

Less than a month later, on June 3, 1918, the Army Aviation Branch re-designated the Surgeon General’s Aeronautics Division into the Air Medical Service. Three days later, the Army officially gave the first graduates their new title, “flight surgeon.
