SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — Thirty-six Airmen participated in The Murph 2018 at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, May 11. The competition is held in honor U.S. Navy SEAL Lt. Michael Murphy, who was killed in action June 28, 2005, while serving in Afghanistan. Murphy created the challenge, a 1-mile run, 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups and 300 body squats followed by another 1-mile run, which athletes try to finish as quickly as possible. The competition is held around Memorial Day every year to honor Murphy’s service. First place male went to Chad Miller with a time of 28:09, and first place female went to 2nd Lt. Veronica Leddy, operations engineering chief with the 50th Civil Engineering Squadron, with a time of 40:41.

Air Force transitions to a single combat uniform Secretary of the Air Force Public Affairs
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Air Force leaders announced the service will move to a single combat utility uniform, adopting the Operational Camouflage Pattern, 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. 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 two-piece 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. Preserves service and 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.
The service will fully transition to OCPs by April 1, 2021. 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 easilyaccessible 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 uniSee Single combat uniform page 10

I have always been a weather watcher. I have especially been intrigued and awed by the power of a thunderstorm. This led me to take up a hobby of storm photography. I am no expert and do it more for my own enjoyment so you most likely will not see my photos on your favorite magazine or web page, but I certainly like the challenge of trying to improve upon my technique and the challenge of trying to catch that great picture.

He now serves as the 4th Space Operations Squadron commander where he took some time out of his day to share some of his leadership perspectives.

1. What was your motivation for joining the Air Force and where did you start your career?
I happened upon the Air Force as a part of college immersion briefs. My dad suggested I try ROTC as it would help pay for college and I figured I would give it a try. As it turns out, I greatly appreciated the core values, structure and job/leadership opportunities. As such, I decided to get my career started as an officer in the Air Force. After 20 years, I am still here and greatly appreciate that this profession has grown me both as a person and a leader through opportunities not available in most if not all civilian sector jobs. 2. What do you feel your strengths and weaknesses are?
I love to learn and problem solve, and I am blessed with the ability to see through complex problems. Unfortunately, this comes with the side effect of wanting the facts before making a decision which can slow down decision making. In addition, I like coming up with ideas and solutions to problems, but am not as good carrying them through to comple-
5. What aspects of leadership are the most important to nurture?
tion (as I want to move onto solving the next problem). Finally, while I greatly like sharing ideas, public speaking is not my forte. I am very appreciative of command and the opportunity to refine my strengths and work on my weaknesses! 3. Who is a leader that stands out to you and why?
There are so many to choose from, but one that resonates with me in my experience right now is General and then later President George Washington. His really is a story of the courage to do what he believed to be right and steadfast resilience in the face of a number of failures. As a squadron commander, I can certainly relate, operating at times on the edge of the unknown, making decisions in the gray space and having the courage to get back up when failure hits you square between the eyes. Stories like that
I think it is important to know yourself and your team. To better manage tough situations, you should know your strengths and weaknesses as well as your biases and blind spots. This will help you to understand what you are capable of and where you may need to rely on others for advice or to shore up those areas where you may not be as capable. In addition, you should also know your people as this will help you to quickly identify the right people you can trust to assist you with the challenge as well as knowing how to both push and influence or motivate your team as you face the challenges of making change together. 6. How do you prepare junior Airmen for leadership roles?
I try to give my young Airmen opportunities to step out and practice leadership. It teaches them about their strengths and weaknesses, how to succeed and fail and how to work See Leadership perspectives page 7

SAPR office discusses #MeToo movement By Senior Airman Arielle Vasquez 50th Space Wing Public Affairs
SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — Last month, the Schriever Air Force Base Sexual Assault Prevention and Response office hosted events for Airmen and their families in an effort to raise awareness on sexual assault and prevention strategies. In light of recent awareness of the #MeToo movement, the SAPR office reminds Airmen that prevention is a 24/7 effort. “The purpose of the #MeToo movement is to help survivors of sexual violence find pathways to healing and have a platform to share their stories,” said Cecilia Smith, acting sexual assault response coordinator with the SAPR program office. “It is so important to continue the effort to protect each other to maintain a safe environment.” Department of Defense officials conducted studies which reported sexual assault in the U.S. military increased by nearly 10 percent in 2017. According to officials, the reason for the rise in numbers does not necessarily relate to an increase in assaults, but an increase in more military members coming forward who trust their cases will be handled professionally and without retribution. “In the military, sexual assault cases have gone underreported,” Smith said. “However, I believe people understand and are becoming more comfortable reporting and know exactly who they can go to for this. They know they have a voice they may not have felt they had before.” While the SAPR office encourages base members to speak up if they encounter inappropriate behavior, they also are reminding Team Schriever of possible outcomes from posting #MeToo on their social media accounts.

In light of the recent effort highlighting the #MeToo movement, the Schriever Air Force Base Sexual Assault Prevention and Response program office reminds Airmen that awareness and prevention is a year-round effort. For more information, contact the SAPR program office at 567-7272.
“Something to remember is by saying #MeToo, it could apply to a gamut of situations.” said Devon Thomas, alternate sexual assault response coordinator with the SAPR program office. “Because this can lead to so many questions about specific details, there could be an investigation that potentially opens up.” “We do not want to discourage anybody from posting #MeToo, but we also want to
bring awareness to base members that there are other avenues to express that,” Smith added. “We want to remind people to be careful about what they put on social media.” Both Smith and Thomas stated their doors are always open for Schriever AFB members to stop by and discuss their concerns in a safe environment. Additionally, members can visit the U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations,
security forces and the chapel office. “In order to build our Air Force community, we need to know we are not alone and are able to rely on each other,” Thomas said. “We fight together, we protect our country together and we should also take care of each other. If you see something, stand up and be that voice so the next person does not have to say #MeToo.”

Leadership perspectives From page 3 through situations. However, you must also coach them through the situation, especially if they are struggling, and then let them continue to lead. This is a challenge in today’s fast paced, high ops tempo, but low risk-tolerance environment. Many leaders don’t take this opportunity because they don’t feel they have the time or they fear the risk of failure reflecting poorly on them. However, we need to give our Airmen a chance to lead and work through the situation to the end even in the midst of failure. This enables them to be prepared to lead rather than having to figure out leadership only once they achieve the “official” leadership role. 7. What is an action or routine that you need to do every day?
I am an introvert. However, the Air Force has tasked me with leading a very large squadron. This entails a number of interactions with groups of people, both large and small. I greatly enjoy helping people, spending time with my folks, and leading my mission. However, for an introvert, this can be incredibly exhausting so I need to take some personal time each day to decompress and recharge my batteries. I do this in a number of different ways but this allows me to come back each day, refreshed and ready to lead my team.

50th SCS enforces Comply to Connect policy By Senior Airman Arielle Vasquez 50st Space Wing Public Affairs
SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — Beginning June 1, the 50th Space Communications Squadron will implement a policy to strengthen the cyber security posture of Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado networks. The Comply to Connect policy has been in place, however, the 50th SCS made updates they want the base to know about. The policy minimizes risks to Schriever AFB missions and networks by employing defensive measures to ensure the integrity and security of all systems throughout the wing as well as tenant units. “Cyber security never takes a break because our adversaries never take a break,” said Maj. Orlando Lopez, director of operations for the 50th SCS. “This policy is an additional tactic to improve the security posture of our unclassified and classified networks.” According to the 50th SCS, systems with a very high number of risks and systems that are not logged in to NIPR and SIPR networks beyond a 30-day time span are not in compliance. At a minimum, all Schriever AFB networks that cannot remain turned on 24/7, need to be powered on and logged in every Wednesday from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. Adherence to the policy will ensure the 50th SCS thoroughly scans and updates the Non-classified Internet Protocol Network and Secret Internet Protocol Networks to mitigate security vulnerabilities as quickly as possible. “All IT systems have vulnerabilities and one of the ways we combat that is by scanning our networks and applying patches,” said Senior Master Sgt. Ethan Peters, operations superintendent for the 50th SCS. “An analogy for this is to think of our networks as a town that sits downstream from a large dam. Holes in that dam need to be found and fixed to prevent risks. Much like an engineer would do with a dam, scanning our networks helps us identify those holes and patch them. “The reason we need to enforce the Comply to Connect policy is because we cannot scan our networks if our systems are not available for scanning,” he added. If base members are not in compliance, an Information Technology Equipment Custodian will be notified for every week the system is not logged on and before disconnection after the fourth week of inactivity. “One thing to note is multiple notices will be sent to ITEC’s before systems are removed from the network,” Peters said. “This allows customers an opportunity to ensure systems are compliant and avoid removal from the network.”
“There is a very important distinction to make,” Lopez correct balance between security and availability. We believe added. “If the users do not comply, 50th SCS will disconnect that this new Comply to Connect policy does a good job of the laptop or terminal, not the individual from the network.” addressing vital security concerns with as little impact to the If a Schriever AFB member is not in compliance, the customer as possible.” user’s responsibility is to call the Communications Focal For more information on the Comply to Connect policy, Point at 567-2666 to open a ticket.

a time of 29:40, which crowned him the second place male. He said his overall experience was great, and he met his time goal of completing the challenge in under 30 minutes. “A couple of friends and I decided to take on the challenge, and doing it together helped us push each other,” he added. Pillco said the beginning run was the hardest part. “My body was cold as I started running, I wanted to run fast and get it over with, but had to remember that pacing myself was key to completing the workout,” he said. “The most rewarding moment was the middle of the workout, around 15 minutes in. As I finished a set of pullups, I took a brief moment to appreciate the crowd that came out to support us.” Seth Cannello, fitness center director with the 50th Force Support Squadron, was impressed by the hard work Airmen put into the competition. “All the competitors faced huge obstacles, and seeing how individuals pushed through their pain and cheered each other on was inspiring,” he said. “We had some very impressive times and it's good to see new and old faces. I think people are starting to train specifically for this event and are pushing themselves to improve their time from year-to-year.” Pillco was also inspired by the amount of dedication the Airmen put into the workout in memory of a fellow service member. “We had an amazing group of warriors pushing their bodies to the limit in memory of Murphy,” he said. “We also had the support from family members and coworkers that morning.”
Also a first time competitor in Schriever AFB’s competition, 2nd Lt. David Ulman, orbital analyst with the 22nd Space Operations Squadron, finished with a time of 42:25. He completed the workout in about 50 minutes a week before the event, and was happy to beat his time. Ulman previously participated in The Murph at Dover Air Force Base, Delaware, and said he likes doing fitness events like this because they are fun and challenging. “It’s a brutal workout, and the altitude definitely changes things,” he said. “The hardest part was the pullups, and the best part was actually finishing.” Cannello said the event was a success. “I was very happy with the turnout, it was our largest to date, and it was fun to see the camaraderie among the participants,” he said. “There were several squadrons throughout the day that competed as a unit. I really like seeing how workmates interact with one another in a non-work environment.” Cannello congratulated all who participated in the event, but specifically recognized the older competitors. “We had a group of ‘seasoned’ competitors that have been taking on this challenge for years and they deserve some special recognition,” he said. “They are long past what should be their athletic prime, but completed this very tough event despite being nearly twice as old as the average competitor.” Pillco emphasized the reason he competed in the competition was to honor Murphy. “The Murph was a small ‘thank you’ for his many lessons, service and for inspiring a new era of warriors,” he said.

form 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.”

AAPI service members support AF through history
U.S Air Force Graphic by Maureen Stewart
May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, a month dedicated to recognizing the contributions Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders make to the U.S., including those who serve our country. According to the Department of Defense, there are more than 100,000 Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders serving in the military.
By Airman 1st Class William Tracy 50th Space Wing Public Affairs
SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — May is AsianAmerican and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, set aside to highlight those whose origins constitute this geographical area, and the benefits they bring to the U.S. There are more than 100,000 Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders serving throughout the Department of Defense, their native countries ranging from Guam to Japan, China and Indonesia. “Mission accomplishment relies on the diversity of our fighting force, and Asian American Pacific Islanders are part of that force,” said Edward Vaughn, director of the 50th Space Wing Equal Opportunity office. “Their service is part of what allows us to be here today.” The military’s history is dotted with exceptional service members of Asian American and Pacific Islander heritage, from retired U.S. senator Daniel Inouye, who received a Medal of Honor for his distinguished service during World War II, to Ellison Onizuka, a retired U.S. Air Force colonel and the first Asian American to reach space, who tragically passed away in the Challenger space shuttle disaster. Here at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, two Airmen, Staff Sgt. Heeyeun Joo, contract administrator with the 50th Contracting Squadron, and Staff Sgt. Alyssa Flores, Bioenvironmental Engineering Technician with the 21st Medical Squadron, shared their experience growing up in another culture and incorporating it into their service. Joo, who moved from South Korea to the U.S. when she
was a child, explained she was unsure where her path in the U.S. was going to lead her. Eventually, she followed a friend’s advice and decided to join the Air Force. “I decided to join the Air Force because I didn’t have any clear idea of what I aspired to do,” Joo said. “My decision was influenced by my need for purpose and will to make a change.” Joo said joining the service was a culture shock, but in a positive way. She was introduced to a variety of cultures aside from her own, realizing the Air Force’s scope of diversity. Additionally, she found ways to blend elements of South Korean culture and discovered how it could benefit her service. “The main thing I found I could blend from my South Korean heritage to my service is respect for elders,” she said. “There is a distinct hierarchy and respect for older people in my culture, and it is very similar to the rank structure in the Air Force. It felt natural to me to respect those with seniority in the service.” Growing up in the Philippines, Flores moved to the U.S when she was 18 on her father’s recommendation to seek better opportunities in life. “My father was a chef here in the states, and he explained the better opportunities the U.S. had and petitioned for my family to immigrate here,” she said. Intent on pursuing an education, Flores enlisted in the Air Force, and thanks to forms N-400 and N-426 under the Immigration and Nationality Act, she was streamlined in the citizenship process and became a U.S. citizen in 2012 while on active duty.
“When I became a U.S. citizen, I felt really proud of myself,” Flores said. “Many Filipinos strive to gain a citizenship, thanks to the Air Force, I was able to promptly.” Joo and Flores’ stories are an example of the journey and dedication of the hundreds of thousands of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders who have established themselves in the U.S. According to the United States Census Bureau, there are 21.4 million Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders residing within the U.S., with more than 2 percent military veterans. In 1978, a joint congressional resolution established Asian and Pacific American Heritage Week. This was extended to a month-long observance by Congress in 1992. Joo and Flores shared their pride serving as Asian Americans in the Air Force, and expressed how diversity provides a valuable contribution to the military and the country as a whole. “Diversity is imperative in an organization like the Air Force, the various backgrounds and cultures we come from strengthen us all,” Joo said. “They enable us to use our differences to become a more united profession, embracing change and using it to our advantage.” “Our service is a worldwide collaboration,” Flores added. “Diversity strengthens our relationships, and understanding, not only with Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, but Airmen as a whole.” Vaughn said Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are a major component of diversity’s strength. “Every culture has its own story to tell, including those from Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders,” Vaughn said.

Chaplain to give his last high-five

By Halle Thornton 50th Space Wing Public Affairs
SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — Sometimes, a high-five from a smiling chaplain is all you need to get through the work day. Capt. Portmann Werner, chaplain with the 50th Space Wing, began his chaplain career at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado Aug. 28, 2015. He returned from Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado, as a reservist and religious education coordinator contractor at Buckley Air Force Base, Colorado. “When I arrived at Schriever, I was honestly happily surprised,” he said. “I was here in 2007 as a chaplain candidate, and it was a completely different base. Everyone was very closed off and no one talked to anyone.” Werner said the chaplains at the time welcomed him with open arms, and mentored him about the day-to-day operations of a chapel’s office. Two months after his arrival, Werner began geek lunch, where he set up a game console and left the auditorium door open to see who would come. “I’m a giant nerd, and I’m on a giant nerd base, so I asked chaplain Adamson if it would it be alright if I started this,” he added. What started with four attendees grew to 20-40 Airmen every week. Werner initiated other events such as the Airman Easter Egg Hunt, Single Airman Retreats and the Great Wolf Lodge retreats, in addition to helping out with Wingman and Diversity days. “Does high fiving people at the gate count as an event?” Werner smiled. “I just want people to start their day off right, and I’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback from it, so I haven’t stopped.” Werner explained he has traveled all over the country, but no base compares to Schriever AFB. “I’ve seen a lot of bases, and Schriever is different because we’re a family,” he said. “A lot of bases say it, but in comparison, we actually live it.” The Schriever AFB community has welcomed Werner with open arms, and that is something he will miss the most. “People have embraced all the weird stuff I do, and they definitely made me feel like my personality was welcomed, he said. “After being a nerd my whole life, it’s an awesome feeling. I’ve been welcomed not only despite my weirdness but because of it.” New 50th Space Wing chaplain, 1st Lt. Lauren Hughes, has worked with Werner for only two months, but said he has given her valuable advice. “Through his actions, I’ve learned authenticity is key,” she said. “I’ve never seen him be anybody but Chaplain Werner.” Hughes said she will miss his geeky, goofy and genuine personality the most. “Over the last two months, I've noticed that smile appear when we enter a room, and laughter follows as we exit,” she said. “He takes full advantage of his personality to make others feel comfortable, including myself.” Werner believes Hughes will be a success at Schriever AFB as the new chaplain, and wishes her nothing but the best. “She’s going to do great things and go far as long as she stays true to herself and her calling,” he added. Werner will miss a lot about Schriever AFB, but he said he will miss the people the most. “Anywhere I go on this base, if I smile at someone, they smile back,” he said. “This whole place is truly what you make of it. If you decide to let little things control you, then you’re letting other stuff control you instead of you controlling the situation. You decide your emotions. “My final thought, to quote Mr. Rogers, ‘For anyone reading this, I love you exactly how you are.’”
