I

n the highly competitive environment of our normal day-to-day Air Force careers, it is sometimes easy to get caught up in the discussion of what you will do next. Is it time to apply for your dream job in a highly selective unit? Should you enroll in a highly selective education opportunity? Is it time to move on to the next phase of your life? These are great forward-thinking questions, but don’t forget about here and now. When I was a young company grade officer, a great mentor shared a simple idea we should apply throughout our careers: “Bloom where you are planted.” When he spoke to me about the Air Force promotion system and central selection boards, he regularly mentioned the this concept. It is natural to compare the position you are in with those of your peers, but you can’t let it affect your work. In our business there are many things that impact our careers that are truly outside of our control. My challenge to you is to learn about and then focus on the things you can control. One thing you absolutely can control is your performance — an example of blooming where you are planted. The Air Force put every single one of you in the position you occupy right now, so own it. Make the job you do today the focus of your work life and try to excel. There are no guarantees you will get everything you want out of your career, even when you excel, but if you don’t try to bloom in your position, you can guarantee the things you want are less likely to happen.

One of the main things Air Force leadership, including wing leadership, looks for in Airmen is how well they perform their primary jobs. In my experience, a person’s work results are more important than everything else and that includes where they work. I’ve seen this in selectively manned units, professional military education and leadership positions. If you get discouraged because you’re not in your “dream job” or weren’t selected for a coveted position, and you let it negatively affect your job performance, you may unintentionally change the course of your career, possibly in the wrong direction.

Make the job you do today focus of your work life and try to excel. If you find yourself in a position or job you perceive as less desirable than your peers, don’t dwell on it. Instead, I recommend you take the skills and training the Air Force offers and do the best job you can. Own what you do, learn as much as you can about your tasks, read what people have done well and not so well in the past, and innovate. These are some of the things you can control. Remember, bloom where you are planted. Be the best services or mission support provider, base defender, cyber professional, space operator, etc., you can be.

Prairie dogs carry plague, no cause for concern By Halle Thornton 50th Space Wing Public Affairs

SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — According to El Paso County officials, the plague was confirmed as responsible for the death of two prairie dogs at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado. Although this is a relatively regular occurrence on base and throughout the Colorado Front Range, awareness of symptoms and risks is the best way to keep residents and personnel safe, and the overall risk is extremely low. Charlie Lawton, 50th Civil Engineer Squadron cultural and natural resources manager and biologist, said the plague outbreak was expected. Lawton explained the plague spreads via fleas, and because the prairie dog population is extremely high this year, prairie dog populations are more likely to contract the plague. “It’s not actually a big deal,” he said. “It happens every three to five years in Colorado. It’s incredibly common, especially during wet years, prairie dog population goes up and the population density is really high then the disease comes through and they’re all packed in their little holes and they get it.” Lawton has been monitoring the popu-

lation since spring, in the expectation this might happen. “It was kind of the perfect storm,” he said. “If it was going to happen this was when it was going to.” Lawton said although it is not a big deal, the base population should take precautions, especially with their pets. “Keep your dogs, cats and yourselves out of prairie dog towns,” he said. “If you see a prairie dog either deceased or distressed, don’t go close or touch it.” Lawton said although very unlikely, if bitten by a flea carrying the plague, one might experience flu-like symptoms, and should go to the doctor immediately. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, plague can be treated

successfully with antibiotics, but an infected person needs promt treatment to avoid serious complications or death. “The chance of flea to human is extremely low unless you’re handling the infected creature,” he said. Lawton said one prairie dog colony is infected, he expects all to be contaminated by the end of the summer. “Young male prairie dogs are the ones who get kicked out when the population of one town gets too high, and they go off to find their own hole elsewhere, so it will get carried that way,” he said. Though spreading of the plague is unlikely, the base population is encouraged to take the following precautions:

“It was kind of the perfect storm.”

• Protect pets with flea powder, drops, or a new flea collar. Keep pets on a leash and out of wild rodent habitats. • Stay out of areas that wild rodents inhabit. If you enter areas with wild rodents, wear insect repellent and tuck pants cuffs into socks to prevent flea bites. • Avoid all contact with wild rodents, including squirrels; do not feed or handle them. • Do not touch sick or dead animals. “The plague is a regular and expected occurrence, there is no cause for public concern and we’re getting out in front of it with some proactive, abundance of caution management techniques,” Lawton said. Out of an abundance of caution, Schriever leadership closed part of the running track closest to the impacted colony along the west perimeter fence line between the Enoch and Irwin gates. Additionally, the Blue Road west of the driveway to Buildings 901 and 902 is closed. The 50th CES is coordinating to secure a pesticide treatment in the affected colony to eradicate the fleas and reduce the likelihood of the plague spreading. If you see a dead animal on base, report it to 50th CES at 719-567-3361.

Schriever hosts EAP briefing By Staff Sgt. Matthew Coleman-Foster 50th Space Wing Public Affairs

SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — The 50th Space Wing hosted the Employee Assistance Program informational briefing, Aug. 7, at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado. Danna Plewe, Air Force Employee Assistance Program manager, hosted five informational sessions informing eligible civilians about the program. Plewe said the EAP provides civilian employees and their families free, confidential resources to help support and manage normal everyday life challenges that may affect job performance and personal well-being Jan Devitt, 50th SW community support coordinator, said Plewe came to the base to educate people on the EAP, so they know it is available. “Based off of metrics gathered, personnel were not using the service or did not know about it,” she said. Ron Gevry, 50th SW director of staff, attended one of the five sessions and said the program is a crucial tool for supervisors of civilian employees. “The EAP is a versatile program that can help resolve an array of problems whether the issue stems from work place conflict to personal family issues,” he said. “Our greatest weapon system in our Air Force is people, and we need to ensure we are taking care of them.” Devitt said EAP started when Air Force leadership realized the disparity between resources available to the military and civilian teammates. “They recognized the void and implemented the Employee Assistance Program to ensure support was provided for all,” she said. “It is specifically for civilian and nonappropriated fund personnel.”

“THE EAP IS A VERSATILE PROGRAM that can help resolve an array of problems whether the issue stems from work place conflict to personal family issues.”

CC call, Bennie’s

opening By Jennifer Thibault 50th Space Wing Public Affairs

SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — Col. James Smith, 50th Space Wing commander, hosted a commander’s call Aug. 6 to discuss connections and upcoming options for Airmen to help make more of them. “We’ve seen in surveys, squadron visits, discussions with Airmen and in our outreach that Airmen at Schriever are struggling to feel connected. We’re working to get after that,” Smith said. “We’re working to understand what barriers are preventing our Airmen from making connections. If you have ideas to better help us understand what those barriers might be and how we can remove them, please let me know.” The commander recounted some of his previous teams, including a front office team at the Pentagon, a small team deployed to Iraq and a company grade officer team right here in the 2nd Space Operations Squadron, and how those high performing teams helped him through life’s stressors.

“We are proud to see Bennie’s as a gathering place to connect with other Airmen while surrounded by a rich legacy and artifacts that remind us of our space heritage.” “While in each case the teams excelled at their missions, it’s not the mission I remember these teams for but rather how I felt being part of them. The teams cared for me and I cared for them. I can still tell you the names of each member and more importantly, what motivated and inspired them,” he said. “That’s the power of connections.” continued page 7 | BENNIE’S

BENNIE’S From page 6

Col. James Smith, 50th Space Wing commander, speaks during a commander’s call at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, Aug. 6, 2019. Smith discussed communication, connections and ways Airmen can help make more of them to include the opening of Bennie’s Breakroom.

In addition to already established events such as Warrior’s Edge training Aug. 15 and the Connection Culture training Sept. 10, leadership is also working the plan for the Team Schriever Resilient Tactical Pause. “We’ve already accomplished some of the requirements during recent stand down days so we’re looking to focus on some other options,” he said. “It will likely include more squadron time because we want to make time for meaningful connections within our teams.” To get after connections in a physical way, past and present leadership combined efforts to establish Bennie’s Breakroom, as a place to mentor, a place to learn, a place to make and build relationships, and a place to foster existing connections. The new gathering spot, located across the street from the 50th Security Forces Squadron building, carries the base’s namesake, Gen. Bernard “Bennie” Schriever, who is considered the father of space and missiles. “This is a place for us to be proud of who we are, of our heritage, of space domain excellence and our shared future — if done right it — will secure American leadership in space for generations,” Smith said.

Lt. Col.

Brett Schriever, are carrying on their family’s legacy of service. “To serve and be on the forefront of change is a dream come true,” he continued. “As we press forward toward a new horizon of space operations in the United States, the space warfighters we develop today will execute my grandfather’s vision, ‘In the long haul our safety as a nation may depend upon our achieving space superiority. Several decades from now the important battles may not be sea battles or air battles, but space battles, and we should be spending a certain fraction of our natural resources to insure that we do not lag in obtaining space supremacy.’” For more information on Bennie’s Breakroom, please contact Capt.

Schriever single CGOs connect, build resiliency at chaplain’s office retreat By 2nd Lt. Idalí Beltré Acevedo 50th Space Wing Public Affairs

BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. — The 50th Space Wing chaplain’s office hosted a single company grade officer’s resiliency retreat, “Single and Secure,” for Schriever Airmen at Breckenridge, Colorado, Aug. 9-11. During the retreat, Airmen discussed modern day dating and marriage and learned about their own personality traits by completing self-assessments based on the MyersBriggs and the Riso-Hudson Enneagram Type Indicator tests. The single CGOs also explored Breckenridge together and built on newly formed friendships. Capt. Jordan Huggins, 50th Space Wing chaplain, highlighted the sense of loneliness single Airmen can feel and explained how the retreat can help. “We try to provide an opportuThe single CGOs nity for people to blow off some also explored steam,” he said. “We give them a place to stay, connect and build Breckenridge relationships, and give them together and built ample time to take advantage of the outdoor activities available at on newly formed Breckenridge.” friendships. Huggins emphasized even though this retreat is offered by the chaplain corps, no particular religion was highlighted or emphasized to keep the lessons practical and neutral. “It’s through the chaplain corps so there is an element of faith we try to build into it, but we try to develop the curriculum so it’s applicable to all faiths or lack thereof.” For Huggins, this retreat not only helped build morale and resiliency but also enriched the spirit and personal well-being of Airmen.

Airmen discuss their findings after performing a personality self-assessment during the single company grade officer resiliency retreat, “Single and Secure,” at Breckenridge, Colorado, Aug. 9, 2019. The event encouraged Airmen to engage in one-on-one discussions about single life as a military member, modern dating and marriage, and provided an opportunity for single CGOs to get away for a weekend of self-discovery, camaraderie and fun.

ASSESSMENTS From page 8 “Studies show the more connected you are socially, the happier and more productive at work you tend to be and that’s part of the reason why we are here,” he said. For 2nd Lt. Eries Thompson, 4th Space Operations Squadron satellite operator, the retreat was a chance to gain a new perspective on being a single military member. “I enjoyed meeting new people and building new connections,” she said. “Everyone had a different perception or experience I could relate to or something I could maybe apply to my personal life.” First Lt. Richard Wright, 22nd Space Operations Squadron crew commander, said the retreat helped him build his resiliency and morale. “The self-care portion of it was like a reset button,” he said. “I felt reassured about the path I am on and looking forward.” Wright highlighted how the chaplain’s office has helped him in the past. “The Schriever chaplain corps is an incredible group. I love to work with them and I know I can stop by any time. I feel reassured when I go and talk to them,” he said. “They have helped me find some solutions to issues I have had and I appreciate all the work that they put in for us.” Huggins offered advice for Schriever’s single CGOs. “Put yourself out there, be willing to be vulnerable, get to know people,” he said. “Be willing to say, ‘I need connections, I need a network, I need friends who can help me along in this journey we call life.’” For further information about upcoming chaplain’s office events, call 719-567-3705.

Mt. Carmel’s Janet Farley, left, and Dillard’s Sue Truex, right, pose with Army Spouse, jobseeker and grant recipient Precious Wallace.

You never get a second chance to make a first impression. On that note, Mt. Carmel established the Dress for Success Grant for current and former spouses enrolled in our MilSpouse Career Program who are in an active job search. The 2019 applicant essays were reviewed and winning recipients awarded a $200 grant for job interview attire from Dillard’s of Citadel Mall. Assistant Store Manager Sue Truex proudly helps each recipient. “My son is a former Marine; I see the need, I love clothes, and I love to help veterans, military, and their families,” said Sue. Sue recently helped grant recipients Precious Wallace and Katrina Atkins with their selections. “I’m so excited about winning this grant,” said Precious. “I’m looking for part time work as a hostess or a front desk receptionist.” For Katrina, the grant was perfectly timed – she was preparing for a conference at CSU Pueblo. “Sue was amazing in helping me pick out items that would work for my career field. She has such a heart for the military and it was a wonderful experience for me. I can’t believe how many items I was able to bring home! I left in tears,” said Katrina. “It has been disheartening looking for work for the past 8 months, however I have felt so supported by Mt Carmel. Every time I thought I reached an end, there was another class or presentation that helped me a bit more and gave me more hope. You all are truly making a practical impact on the military community.” Mt. Carmel’s Janet Farley, MCP program manager, is helping Precious, Katrina and others with resumes, job search and more. In the 15 months MCP has been active, more than 180 spouses have enrolled. Today, more than 70 are employed with an average salary of $17.34/hour ($36,067 annually). Military spouse unemployment remains high at 26 percent nationwide with underemployment at 56 percent but the MCP at Mt. Carmel is working to change that for the better. “I’m so grateful to our donors and partners who made the 2019 Dress for Success Grant a possibility; I’m even happier for our job-seeking military spouses who I know appreciate the assistance,” said Janet. Thirteen women and two men applied to for the grant including seven spouses of active duty members and eight spouses of veterans. Ten are searching for work; five are underemployed. The effort was supported with $500 from the Ft. Carson Mountain Post Spouse’s Club; $650 from the Kenneth King Foundation; and $50 from Military Spouses Wanda Williams and her daughter, Dee Green. Essay panelist Tammy Whalen of HomeSmart was so impressed with one essay, she donated $200, allowing grants for seven total applicants.

PROMOTES innovation, iWar and AFWERX By Airman 1st Class Jonathan Whitely 50th Space Wing Public Affairs

SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — Thirty exhibitors were recognized for their innovative efforts to advance the Air Force at the 2019 AFWERX Fusion Xperience in Las Vegas, July 23-24. Shana Allen, 50th Force Support Squadron management analyst, said AFWERX is a team of innovators from a variety of organizations brought together by the Secretary of the Air Force.

“Without innovation we risk falling behind our adversaries.”

“When our Air Force community implements innovative solutions we often save time and money,” she said. “In other instances, there could be a new process implemented that results in efficiencies or new services offered which may boost morale. No matter the innovation, we strive to build upon the Air Force senior leader priorities to restore readiness, cost-effectively modernize and drive innovation.” Allen said Schriever AFB encourages innovation at all levels. “Schriever AFB’s innovation program is Innovative Warfighters Advancing Readiness,” she said. “It provides a platform for everyone on Schriever AFB to pitch their innovative ideas directly to the wing commander, saving Airmen’s time, saving money and improving quality of life on Schriever AFB.”

Allen said AFWERX is important in continuing to foster a culture of innovation while also providing fresh opportunities to advance Air Force capabilities. “If you have an idea that you think would be great but you’re not sure what to do next, go check out the USAF Ideation Platform and AFWERX websites,” she said. “The Air Force wants your great ideas.” Derek Hamby, 50th Force Support Squadron chief of manpower and organization, said AFWERX brings together military, industry, entrepreneurs and scholars to provide real world solutions to the Air Force’s areas that need improvement. “AFWERX is important because the Air Force can continue to be the leader in air, space and cyberspace,” he said. “Without innovation we risk falling behind our adversaries.” Hamby said anyone can participate in programs like AFWERX. “Today’s Air Force operates in a constrained fiscal environment,” he said. “Implementing innovative ideas provides avenues to free Airmen’s time and save funding. This allows both Airmen and funding to be diverted to areas that are in need of manpower and funding.” According to an article released by an Air Force spokesperson, an online AFWERX challenge on multi-domain operations solicited a record-breaking 317 proposals for existing, commercially available concepts which could be applicable to the Air Force problem set. “I recommend we all be innovative in what we do,” Hamby said. “Without innovation organizations fail. Take VHS movie rental stores, for example. The stores didn’t believe in the digital medium for movies. This failure to embrace innovation resulted in the collapse of these stores. It can also be seen in many other organizations. The Air Force is no different in the fact we have to be innovative to stay ahead of our competition.” For more information about the iWar panel, contact Allen at 719-567-2780.

School liaison connects military students to schools By Halle Thornton 50th Space Wing Public Affairs

Air Force families across the world include 175,000 children ages 5-18, and these children generally move six to nine times during their K-12 school years, often making multiple moves in high school years alone. To help with this unique situation, Schriever’s new school liaison acts as the connector between the military base and student. “I was doing it as an additional duty for three years,” said Ruth Moore, 50th Force Support Squadron child and youth services school liaison. “Now I can focus on the military connected students full-time.” Moore explained the child and youth education services, including the school liaison, is committed to outreach, advocacy and partnership initiatives that generate real-time solutions for military connected students in pre-K through grade 12 as they face international educational challenges and transitions. “I have a great relationship with all the schools in Colorado Springs,” she said. “I can provide information on Colorado Springs school districts, act as the liaison between the military community and school administrators and provide consultation services regarding education.” continued page 13 | EDUCATION

Schriever celebrates 50th OSS Airmen graduation

Graduates from the 50th Operations Support Squadron, display their graduation certificates during a graduation ceremony at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, Aug. 8, 2019. Nine first-term Airmen finished their qualifications as satellite systems operators and extremely high frequency satellite system operators. The 100 plus day training curriculum prepared students to operate, support and maintain GPS and protected communications satellites, guaranteeing global, secure, survivable, strategic and tactical communications.

Maj. Alan Burwell, 50th Operations Support Squadron commander, discusses the importance of the space training 50th OSS provides during a graduation ceremony at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, Aug. 8, 2019. The squadron instructors provide initial qualification training and upgrade qualification training, graduating more than 200 space professionals annually.

Lt. Col. Michael Schriever, 2nd Space Operations Squadron director of operations, congratulates graduates during the 50th Operations Support Squadron graduation ceremony at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, Aug. 8, 2019. Graduates will join either 2nd SOPS or 19th SOPS as GPS system satellite operators and 4th SOPS as extremely high frequency system satellite operators.

Col. Laurel Walsh, 50th Operations Group commander, congratulates 50th Operations Support Squadron graduates during a ceremony at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, Aug. 8, 2019.

The child and youth education services, including the school liaison, is committed to outreach, advocacy and partnership initiatives that generate real-time solutions for military connected students in pre-K-12 as they face international educational challenges and transitions.

EDUCATION From page 11

Moore explained the five Cs of a school liaison: connecting, customize, comprehensive, construct and create. Connecting: Schools, families and communities meet the unique needs for pre K-12 military connected students. Customize: Real-time solutions for military connected students facing transitional barriers and educational gaps. Comprehensive: Professional development for educators to understand the military lifestyle. Construct: A network of extensive resources for building resilient communities. Create: A system of support for mili-

tary connected students experiencing parental deployment or separation. “Academic standards, promotion or graduation requirements, services for children with special needs, eligibility for sports and extracurricular activities and transfer and acceptance for records vary greatly from state to state, even district to district,” Moore said. “While these are not new issues, national emphasis on quality education and higher standards for admission to many post high school

education and training institutions increase the stakes like never before.” Gary Hernandez, 50th FSS School Age Care program coordinator, said one of the reasons the position is important is because the person serves as the bridge for the School Age Care program and the school it serves. “Ruth (Moore) is able to help with communicating between the two and keep us both aware of events, visitors and opportunities for the program and children,” he

Air Force families across the world include 175,000 children ages 5-18, and these children generally move six to nine times during their K-12 school years.

said. “Ruth is also able to bring opportunities such as guest speakers and field trips to the SAC program itself. “She is bringing more opportunities to the benefit of the SAC program here at Schriever,” Hernandez continued. “Ruth’s position enables her to also assist the children of deployed parents, the parents themselves and brings programs or events to the children of the entire base such as the recent back to school event.” Moore said it’s not just academics, but the whole person concept (emotional, mental and physical), and she is honored to take on the role. “My son grew up as a military student, so it’s an honor to be helping military connected students obtain a quality education,” she said. For additional information, contact Moore at 719-567-6176.

New DOD program to track sexual predators By Staff Sgt. Matthew Coleman-Foster 50th Space Wing Public Affairs

SCRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — The Department of Defense created a new initiative called “Catch a Serial Offender” to increase the effectiveness of the sexual assault prevention and response program and offer another avenue for victims to report suspect information. According to Christina Martinez, 50th Space Wing sexual assault victim advocate, CATCH gives individuals making restricted reports a way to anonymously disclose suspect information to help the DOD identify serial offenders. “Individuals entering data can choose to enter as much or as little information as they deem appropriate or feel comfortable entering,” she said. The program also allows an individual to add additional information at a later date and time, and allows law enforcement and investigative agencies to identify possible serial sexual assault offenders. John Camacho, 50th Security Forces Squadron investigator, said the program will provide a way forward for victims and enhance the help investigative agencies and law enforcement can provide to the victim. “I think the program is great,” Camacho said. “Victims are often scared to come forward. This program allows them to submit their reports online. The CATCH program does not disclose the victim’s identity when they input data and participation in the program is voluntary. “Data entries are queried against other CATCH entries, via the CATCH website, other unrestricted reports and law enforcement data for possible matches in the system,” Martinez said. “If a match is determined, the victim would be notified of the match, allowing them to make an informed decision about converting to an unrestricted report.” The victim will be provided with a username and password by the SAPR office, generated based off of their restricted report. “Victims can log into the system and enter their information or can fill out and mail in a hard copy of the CATCH form,” Martinez said. “Entries made in the CATCH system will remain active for 10 years.” The 50th SAPR office will incorporate the program into the services they offer to the victim. “Our office will discuss the CATCH program with any individual who has reported or opts to make a restricted report of sexual assault,” Martinez said. Martinez said even though the new program will identify potential offenders, there is another step to take before an investigation starts. “There will not be an investigation of an incident without an individual converting their report from a restricted to an unrestricted report,” she said. For more information regarding the CATCH program, visit the SAPR office website at www. sapr.af.mil or call at 719-567-7634 or 719-567-7446. For confidential 24/7 crisis intervention, call or visit the DoD Safe Helpline at 877-995-5247.
