SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — The 50th Network Operations Group welcomed new leadership during a change of command ceremony at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, June 29. Col. Hewett Wells assumed command of the group from outgoing commander, Col. W. Scott Angerman. Col. Jennifer Grant, commander of the 50th Space Wing, presided over the ceremony.

“Today is a significant day marking the change of command for one of only two network operations groups in the Air Force,” Grant said. The group’s change of command came on the same day as its historic support of the successful launch of CRS-15, a SpaceX Falcon 9 mission sending supplies to the International Space Station. Wells joins the 50th NOG after serving as director of command, control, communications and computer systems and chief

information officer support at U.S. Cyber Command. “It is an honor and privilege to be the new commander,” Wells said. “It is an exciting time to be in this business, defending and operating in and through space and cyberspace. I recognize that I stand on the shoulders of others here. I will work diligently to build on the accomplishments of my predecessors and continue to advance the NOG.” See 50th NOG changes page 10

Wing celebrates founding fathers' ideals By Airman 1st Class William Tracy 50th Space Wing Public Affairs

SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — July marks a pivotal day in U.S. history, a date Americans at home and abroad celebrate in the same theme of red, white and blue. Members of the 50th Space Wing are no exception. Throughout the wing’s history, from its World War II origins as a fighter wing, to its contemporary role as a leading force in the ever-evolving space warfighting realm, July is a date honored every year, in the midst of war and in times of peace. While July 2, 1776 was the day America declared independence, it was on July 4th the Second Continental Congress approved the declaration, a definitive point where the congress, Continental Army and other rebels to the crown showed their will to take up arms against tyranny. Airmen throughout the Air Force continue to uphold the values of America’s founding fathers – values of freedom, individual rights and national pride. Today, the 50th SW serves as a continuation of these ideals, through its mission of evolving space and warfighting superiority through integrated and innovated operations. See Founding fathers page 14

3rd Space Experimentation Squadron commander

Editor's note: This commentary was originally published June 25, 2014. SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — A few weeks ago, I had the great privilege of attending a naturalization ceremony in Denver. On this day, 32 people from 21 countries pledged their allegiance to the United States of America. I watched the expressions of each of these new Americans as they gleefully accepted their certificates of naturalization. In many cases, this was the culmination of an arduous process which distinguished those who were truly willing to relinquish their previous nationality for American citizenship. They were joined in this jubilant ceremony by their families and friends. As our Chief of Staff, Gen. Welsh, often says, "Every Airmen has a story." No doubt, every one of these 32 new citizens also had a long story where they overcame many odds to become U.S. citizens.

In the midst of this ceremony, something took me completely by surprise. After reading the rights bestowed upon these new citizens, the Department of Homeland Security officer spoke about the great sacrifice and service of our nation's Armed Forces. She then asked the audience if all former and current members of the United States Armed Forces could stand. As I gazed across the room I quickly realized I was the only one. Humbly, I stood. I was not ready for what transpired next. The room erupted in vigorous applause with loud cheers and many waved small American flags. I smiled for the new citizens, the DHS officers, and the many onlookers in attendance. It only lasted for a few seconds, but in this one moment, I felt a surge of pride in not only our profession of arms, but our nation as a whole. I realized the applause was not for me, but rather for all of the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines who valiantly served, many of whom fought in combat for our nation's freedoms, and also in tribute of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice with their life. After several days passed I reflected on this event. I was still in awe of the great tribute given to me and all of us who have or continue to serve our nation. I want to share with you two truths. Never think your service to our nation is mundane. Many of us wear the uniform every day. We commute to and from Schriever AFB. We go to our place of work and execute our mission without fanfare. We seek no reward nor accolades for our actions. When the day's duty is done, we go home, take off our uniform, and go about our lives with our civilian neighbors. This routine can lead some to think their service to our nation is mundane. On the contrary, what you do as a member of our nation's military deters those from challenging the freedoms Americans holds dear and ensures the next generation can live their lives in peace. Just as I experienced, millions of Americans are exuberantly thankful for our unwavering service to defend the Constitution

and the steadfast values which make America free. We must remember that our profession is more than a job; it is a profound duty which underlies our nation's strength and integrity. We need to be proud of our service and regardless of your rank, skill set, or duties, everything you do is essential to our freedom. U.S. Citizenship is more than just a status. Just as important as the value of serving our nation is that of citizenship itself. Most of us don't often ponder what is means to be a U.S. citizen; we were born with this identity. It is something we denote on a block on our tax forms, security clearance paperwork, or voter registration. Yet, U.S. citizenship is so much more than just a status. Watching those 32 people become new citizens reminded me there is significant meaning to one's citizenship. It means that they belong to a particular nation with their heart, soul, and mind. Being a U.S. citizen should be just as important to each of us who did not have to choose our citizenship and meet stringent requirements. Therefore, never underplay the importance of being a part of this great nation. Your way of life is a result of those who paid dearly for our nation's independence and equally granted liberties. We all enjoy these benefits regardless of our age, race, or religion. We should be proud to be Americans. As July Fourth nears, I encourage you to explore what it means to be an American. Think about the rights you have regardless of whether you obtained your citizenship by birth or through another source. No citizen is more or less American than the other. It is a great honor to be a part of this country. Furthermore, ponder your service. What you do every day matters more than you can fathom. Be proud to call yourself a soldier, sailor, airmen, or marine. I hope someday you will have an experience similar to the one I had at the Naturalization ceremony. After all, everyone deserves a little applause for their service to our great nation.

CoC ceremony rooted in rich history By Halle Thornton 50th Space Wing Public Affairs

SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — Change of commands are rooted in rich military history, dating back to the 18th century. At that time, flags were developed with color arrangements and symbols unique to each unit, and served as a rallying point and reminder of allegiance to their leader during battle. “The tradition of the change of command goes back to the time of the Roman Legions where the passing of the commander's baton occurred in front of the troops to signify the leader who would take them into battle,” said James Mesco, historian for the 50th Space Wing. “The Continental Army in the late 18th Century resumed the tradition in the U.S. These actions occurred even before the Air Force became a separate service for the air arm of the military.” Mesco said the change of command tradition dates back hundreds of years, and the Air Force adopted the ceremony from the U.S. Army. According to the Air Force Instructions 14.5.1, “The primary purpose of a change of command ceremony is to allow subordinates to witness the formality of command change from one officer to another. The ceremony should be official, formal, brief and conducted with great dignity.” The AFI also stresses the importance of the flag/guidon exchange, stating, “The flag/guidon is exchanged during the change of command as a symbolic gesture providing a tangible view of the command authority being transferred from one commander to the next.” Alicia Chavez, protocol specialist with the 50th

SW, explained planning and executing change of command ceremonies is a lengthy process. “Out of all ceremonies on base, this one takes a lot more planning and coordinating,” she said. “There are also many moving pieces, especially when there are formations for the group and wing.” The AFI has a specific sequence of events for change of commands, and Chavez is in charge of making sure all components of this sequence are executed. “I ensure all details are covered,” she said. “Communication and staying on task is important, and being a team is crucial.” Chavez is tasked with making invitations, using the correct emblems and wording, planning for pre and post receptions, scripts, distinguished visitors announcements, rehearsals and programs. “It's almost like planning a wedding,” she laughed. “Most important is that protocol meets with action officers and their team, educating them on all the moving parts for a successful change of command. It truly takes a team.” Chavez added change of commands are important because it gives the base multiple opportunities to view a military official ceremony. “It also gives everyone the chance to welcome and meet the incoming commander and their family,” she said. “Plus, there’s cake.” Chavez enjoys working on the change of command ceremonies because she likes to meet with the action officers and help them get started. “I think it's an eye opener for them because they don't realize how much work it entails,” she said. “They leave with a knowledge of ceremony planning, team work and a sense of military protocol.”

Becoming an Air Force officer: OTS By Senior Airman Arielle Vasquez 50th Space Wing Public Affairs

SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — For those interested in submitting an Officer Training School package, the fiscal year 2019 board dates have been posted. OTS is a group-level command that trains more than 2,000 officers in a fiscal year and upon graduation, individuals earn a commission. While stationed at Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama, for nine weeks, trainees are evaluated on their leadership potential, moral standards and academic strengths. Before one can reach this stepping stone, each candidate must go through a selection process. The preparation involved for an OTS package may surprise some. “OTS is a lengthy application process,” said Scott Hardin, education services specialists with the 21st Force Support Squadron. “The Air Force Form 56 is the actual application form candidates would complete. A big part of my role is to make sure members interested in OTS among other programs, are aware of what is available and also knowing where to get accurate information to complete their packages.” Several components make up an OTS package to include passing the Air Force Qualifying Test, providing Enlisted Performance Reports, service records, letters of recommendation and memorandums. According to 2nd Lt. Michael Kilbourn, deputy flight commander with the 50th Contracting Squadron, several updates have been made to the selection process since he submitted an OTS package in 2015. “One of the significant changes made was separating boards for active duty members, civilians and Reservists,” he said. “You now compete in a pool of similarly stationed applicants. Before, there was only one opportunity for everyone from different venues to be considered simultaneously. Also, in the past there was an age cap to commission by the age of 35. Now, they are eligible if they commission by the age of 39.” Even before Kilbourn was selected for OTS, he paid it forward by helping other enlisted members with their packages and continues to do so. “I’ve seen how the process has changed over the past couple years,” he said. “Any commissioning process is a challenge and I wanted to guide others. The first person I helped was selected and at that point, we saw that there were universal principles that could be applied across the board.” While the OTS application process may be lengthy and even daunting to some, Hardin shared advice for those who would like to pursue this path. “The key is having accurate information before you start to put in hard work,” he said. “Often times, people do not have the necessary information until it is too late. Something I recommend is for members to also inform their supervision of their plan to apply to OTS. It is crucial they receive support and input throughout the process to become even more competitive.” Kilbourn also had advice to share with Airmen, looking to become officers. “For those who are preparing their packages or who would like to in the future, the first step is making sure you seek candid feedback from your rater to see where you stand and continue to do so at each level,” Kilbourn said. “Use your chain of command. Applying for OTS is such a comprehensive process and entails so much effort and support from your leadership before anything else happens. From there, the members need to be familiar with the criteria and deadlines in order to have the most up-to-date information. “It’s important to keep your eye on the prize throughout it,” he continued. “When they cross the finish line, it’s amazing to think how life-altering it is and seeing them serve in a greater capacity.” Earlier this year, the FY18 active duty officer selection board results were announced. The most recent Front Range enlisted members selected for OTS are: Senior Airman Patricia Barrientos 21st Medical and Dental Squadron Clinic Airman 1st Class Adena Broxton 21st Space Wing Tech. Sgt. Matthew Kendall 25th Space Range Squadron Master Sgt. Trevor McAffee 561st Network Operations Squadron Tech. Sgt. Andrew Taurianen Air Force Technical Applications Center The next Active Duty application is due by Dec. 12.

Vice chairman salutes the 1 percent who serve By Lisa Ferdinando Depatment of Defense News, Defense Media Activity

WASHINGTON — The men and women who serve in the U.S. armed forces represent the best America has to offer, volunteering to put themselves in harm’s way to serve and protect the nation, the vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said June 28,2018. Only 1 percent of our population today will ever wear the uniform of this nation in any of its incarnations -- Soldier, Sailor, Airman, Marine, active, Guard or Reserve,” Air Force Gen. Paul J. Selva said at the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics convention at National Harbor, Maryland. “That means we have to pick from the very best, because they are going to lead the very best,” he told the athletics administrators from the 1,700 colleges and universities in NACDA’s membership. He thanked the administrators for what they do to lead, coach and bring out the best in young people. Those athletes include people who will join the military, as well as veterans, including wounded warriors, who will be welcomed back into their communities, he noted. Strength of Wounded Warriors Selva hailed the strength and resilience of wounded warriors. “They are such a small part of our population, but they’re an important part of our population,” he said. “We owe them everything we can give them for what they have given us.” Earlier this month, Selva attended the Warrior Games for wounded, ill and injured service members. He described his latest experience at the games as enlightening, saying he has a greater insight into the challenges the men and women have overcome. “They would say learning adaptive sports actually changed their lives forever,” he said. “It’s amazing to shake their hands or give them a hug after they’ve competed.” Upholding Oath to Constitution The men and women of the all-volunteer force are upholding an oath to the Constitution of the United States, not to an administration, a party or a person, Selva said. “Every one of us wears the uniform of our nation because

we choose to,” he added. Service members are asked to do inherently dangerous jobs in the defense and protection of freedom and liberty, Selva told the audience. “For that, we have vowed to give our dying breath if that’s necessary,” he said. “That 1 percent, those sons and daughters of our citizens, are the treasure of this nation,” he said. “What we owe them, which is what I spend most of my time on, are the best tools,

the best education and the best training available to allow them to do the tasks they have to do.” Selva said he means it when he says he works for the men and women in the military, not the other way around. “I’m here to tell their story, not mine,” he said. “I’m here to remind you how great they are because they serve you, and I thank you for the privilege of being able to lead them.”

“My favorite thing about Fourth of July would probably be the parades. As a kid, there was always one big neighborhood parade they’d do, and that was always the highlight of the day. My brother and I would try to sell hot dogs or hamburgers. That was always something we looked forward to: going to the store and cooking it all up.” (Hometown: Dallas, Texas) U.S. Air Force photo by 2nd Lt. Scarlett Rodriguez

I felt like I was back in Afghanistan, no good.” (Hometown: Huntington Beach, California) U.S. Air Force photo by Kathryn Calvert

50th NOG From page 1 Wells also hopes to leverage his experience at his last assignment in his new job. “Having served the past three years at U.S. Cyber Command, I’ve seen firsthand how the department has transitioned from cyberspace support to kinetic operations to now cyberspace operations and effects across the spectrum of conflict,” Wells said. “We must prepare to sustain space effects in a contested environment and throughout the spectrum of conflict.” Grant highlighted three unique challenges the commanders within the 50th SW face: leadership, performance

and sacrifice. “Our leadership is stretched in varying degrees,” she said. “Our performance is required to be elevated in ways we may not have anticipated; and the level of sacrifice we and our families bear is significantly different as you move up the different levels of command.” Grant also pointed out several of the 50th NOG’s accomplishments under Angerman’s command. “Our mission runs 24/7, 365,” Grant said. “Col. Angerman and his team have been there and met the mission requirements every single time. In February, we had one of the biggest efforts we’ve ever executed here with regard to troop movement and relocation for power work, involving more than 60 systems, more than 1,300 circuits and numerous external organizations that all had to be synchronized. We had zero mission impacts. The NOG has also been engaged with 58 successful launches.” Angerman reflected on his tenure as commander.

“There’s no other base like Schriever Air Force Base,” Angerman said. “Space power begins here. This is the best space and cyberspace operations group in the Air Force. We operate worldwide in 12 different time zones, which is what makes the 50th Space Wing a global wing.” After receiving the Legion of Merit, Angerman deferred praise to the 50th NOG Airmen. “The NOG has been busy over the last two years,” he continued. “We’ve focused on and reconstituted our geographically separated units. We’ve supported record-setting satellite contacts and a blistering launch support pace. I really couldn’t be prouder of all the NOG’s accomplishments.” Wells concluded the ceremony by affirming his desire to lead the group into the future. “I look forward to learning from the men and women of the NOG and building relationships and partnerships with the wing and Team Schriever to help advance the wing mission,” he said.

Satellite operator earns silver in canopy piloting event By Staff Sgt. Laura Turner 310th Space Wing Public Affairs

SCHRIEVER AIR FORE BASE, Colo. — From Reserve Citizen Airman and satellite vehicle operator for the 6th Space Operations Squadron flies more than just satellites. In his spare time, Maj. Matthew Shull, 6th SOPS flight commander, participates in canopy piloting. The sport is a landing competition and the first spectator-friendly form of skydiving, also known as “swooping.” Competitors exit an aircraft, deploy high-performance parachutes and maneuver over a course that is set up above a pond. They are then rated in three separate events for speed, distance and zone accuracy. He competed at the world level in canopy piloting in 2017 and finished fourty second out of nintey four competitors. He continued his journey for the 2018 season at the Florida Canopy Piloting Association in June. During number five

of six FLCPA meets, Shull placed fifth in speed, second in zone accuracy and fourth in distance, putting him at second place in the competition overall. “This was good, considering my competition in 1st place is the world champion in the event,” said Shull in his after action report. “We finished with the distance event, which is usually my strongest [area]. I took fourth due to limited practice in the power events; speed and distance.” Shull’s goals entering the event were to continue to train for the World Championships and National Championships later in the year, as well as get a top-three podium spot. “I was in second place for the season after the last meet,” said Shull. “There is still a tight race for the silver and bronze season medals between myself and three other pro competitors.” Lt. Col. Paxton Mellinger, commander of 6th SOPS, expressed his appreciation of Shull’s dedicated pursuit of the

sport. “Maj. Shull continues to amaze me with his ability to compete head-to-head against canopy piloting professionals while managing a successful career as an Air Force officer,” said Mellinger. “His dedication to his fight commander duties and to canopy piloting is nothing short of amazing!” After the competition, Shull said he will continue to prepare and train both physically and mentally before the national event in September and the world event coming up next month. “I will strive for top finishes and my first gold medal for this league to hopefully hold my overall second place,” said Shull. “The next competition is the World Championships; I’m going strong with just a few things that I need to work on. My confidence is high going into the final stretch.”

Founding fathers From page 1 James Mesco, historian for the 50th SW, shared the wing’s history in correlation with the date. “Starting in 1941, with America’s entry into WWII, America’s society began to increasingly celebrate the fourth of July to reinforce the idea of independent nations and democracy,” he said. “When Gen. George Patton was moving across France liberating portions of the country from Nazi occupation around the July timeframe, the 50th Fighter Group was involved in numerous operations providing vital close air support.” Mesco said the wing’s transitionary period after the war in 1953, where planes and personnel were being relocated to Hahn Air Base in Germany, fell around July as well. “All these assets were moving from the United States to Europe,” he added. “Twice during the wing’s history, Fourth of July celebrations had to be put on hold for major world events involving the wing.” During the U.S. bicentennial celebration in 1976, the installation's newspaper, the Hahn Hawk; featured a double page collage complete with depictions of American’s founding fathers in recognition.


In the later portion of the 20th century and early 21st century, the location of what is now Schriever AFB has had a host of small Fourth of July celebrations, increasing with the introduction of on base housing. Now, decades away from America’s tricentennial, the tradition of celebrating the date of America’s independence remains within the 50th SW and throughout the country. Rick Sturdevant, deputy director of history with headquarters Air Force Space Command, highlighted the importance service members have preserving the unalienable rights the founding fathers famously stated in the declaration – “the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” “Service members, past and present, remember the enduring legacy of those intrepid patriots who fought during 1775-1783 for independence, and they recall the many times when later Americans have been called to preserve that independence in the face threats from enemies abroad,” he said. “By wearing the uniform, they declare themselves ready to oppose any foe who would impose tyranny on them and their nation.” Above all the simmering grills, colorful decorations and fireworks, the Fourth of July is a time to celebrate and reflect on the role all service members, whether it be Airman, Soldier, Marine, Sailor or Department of Defense civilian or contractor, has upholding America’s freedoms.

Colorado DA addresses stalking prevention By Airman 1st Class William Tracy 50th Space Wing Public Affairs

SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — Timothy Johnson, Colorado’s 20th Judicial District’s deputy district attorney, detailed stalking and ways to avoid being a victim during a Stalking in the 21st Century class at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, June 26. Johnson, a lawyer with years of experience dealing with stalking crimes, shared a variety of tips and detailed past cases he covered during the three-hour-long class. “We all know that stalking happens,” he said. “We know that roughly one in 12 to one in 14 victims of stalking make a report to the police. There’s a huge barrier to reporting.” He highlighted the uniqueness of cyberstalking - stalking using predominantly electronic communications means - which only entered the lexicon of law decades ago, and how law officials are trying to format and update laws to properly address it. “Stalking is a very serious crime, and law officials try to handle it as seriously as they can,” Johnson said. He shared how stalking can often be interpreted as overaffection and other misguided perceptions. “There’s nothing romantic about stalking,” Johnson said. “A stalker can be anyone, not just a stranger on the street, often times, it is a member of your family or an ex.” Each state has different legal definitions for what stalking is. In the last decade, Colorado law addresses stalking as a “serious problem in this state and nationwide,” (C.R.S. 183-601 paragraph A), and states that “stalking involves severe intrusions on the victim’s personal privacy and autonomy, with an immediate long-lasting impact on quality of life; even in the absence of express threats to physical harm,” (C.R.S. 18-3-601 paragraph F). Because of slowly adapting laws and ambiguous definitions on whether someone is truly stalking or harassing an individual, stalking is considered a legal gray area - a fact many stalkers use to their advantage. For example, Johnson shared a case in which a man was obsessively stalking a woman who repeatedly rejected his advances, continuing to harass her even after being placed in a psychiatric hospital. Because of a loophole in Colorado law, and his individual patient rights, he was able to send explicit threats and harass her through written letters - had he used a phone or said it in person he could have faced legal prosecution. Additionally, state online databases can be used to gather additional details. “We are always updating information like our driver’s licenses and voter information,” Johnson said. “Through the internet, cyber stalkers can find out where you live, what your phone number is, even your political affiliation.” Fortunately, Johnson shared how the same resources stalkers use are also used by law enforcement personnel to identify suspects. They have conceived special counter measures against stalking, such as aggressive use of search warrants and records tracking. Additionally, penalties for

Timothy Johnson, Colorado’s 20th Judicial District deputy district attorney, answers a question during his Stalking in the 21st Century class at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, June 26, 2018. Johnson used past cases as reference and advised Airmen on ways to deal with a potential stalking situation.

stalking have become increasingly severe in recent years; many offenses upgrading from minor crimes to felonies. For military members, stalking is a serious crime under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, in which stalking is listed as of sub article of Article 120a, which governs general sexual assault. Johnson emphasized individual Airmen should take precautionary measures to protect themselves, such as using safe and secure websites, maintaining strong passwords and keeping sensitive personal information guarded. They can also use the resources the military provides, such as the family advocacy program, to work out solutions if they become a victim of stalking. “You have resources which can provide a tremendous amount of guidance when it comes to reporting these kinds of crimes,” Johnson said. Kisa Corcoran, domestic abuse victim advocate with the Peterson Air Force Base Family Advocacy Program, helped organize the Stalking in the 21st Century class for Schriever Airmen, and said she welcomed the opportunity to bring in a legal expert to inform the base community. “It began with the intention of having our staff trained, and

as we thought of others who could benefit, and as leadership became interested, we got the word out for persons across all the Colorado Springs bases,” she said. “I think we are very fortunate to have a highly-experienced expert share his knowledge of how stalking has increased in complexity as technology has evolved, what to look for and how to protect yourself from it.” She highlighted the benefits the class brings to the base. “As a provider of services to victims and survivors of abuse, the information and resources will help me to assist clients in de-mystifying this tactic of control and with steps toward protecting themselves,” Corcoran said. “The information serves to empower us to approach problems that arise from the misuse of technology which ranges from harassment, invasion of privacy to dangerous assaults.” While criminals adapt to ever changing technology, law enforcement officials do so as well, striving to beat them to the punch. With a new set of learned tools from Johnson, Schriever Airmen can now assist them in this effort and help combat and prevent stalking. For more information, contact Johnson at 303-441-1619.

Schriever AFB fire department shares grilling safety tips Three out of five households own a gas grill, which translates to a lot of tasty meals, but it also means there’s an increased risk of home fires. Check gas tank hoses for leaks before using it for the first time each year. Apply a light soap and water solution to hose using a brush or spray bottle. A propane leak will release bubbles. If your grill has a gas leak, turn off both gas tank and grill. If the leak stops, get the grill serviced by a professional before using it again. If you smell gas while cooking, immediately move away from grill and call 911. If the flame goes out, turn grill and gas off and wait at least five minutes before re-lighting it. For more information, contact the Schriever AFB fire department at 567-3370.
