When it comes to public health, the Naval Health Clinic Charleston preventive medicine department provides a frontline defense for prevention of communicable diseases. All ships are required to have a shipboard sanitation exemption certificate in order to dock internationally, and the preventive medicine department provides just that. "The certificate tells foreign ports that the ship isn't carrying any diseases or pests that are a concern to public health," said Petty Officer 2nd Class Wilson Araujo, NHCC preventive medicine technician. "Every ship has to have it." Araujo and his team were inspecting the USNS Zeus (TARC-7), the only ship of her type and currently operated by the U.S. Navy. According to the Military Sealift Command website, The USNS Zeuz is one of 15 ships in the Military Sealift Command's Service Support Ships Program. Her primary missions are to transport, deploy, retrieve and repair submarine cables. The NHCC inspection team begins the inspection with a look at the exterior of the ship, checking for protection against rodents and their ability to get onto the ship. After that initial assessment, the inspection team goes aboard to continue the inspection throughout the entire vessel.

The main areas being inspected include the galley and all food preparation areas, the engineering spaces, living quarters and overall ship sanitation. "One critical thing we look for is what the crew does to avoid pest infestation and what their prevention methods are," said Araujo. "The reasoning behind this is that pests are vectors for communicable diseases." "This is how diseases were spread," said Araujo. "Pests and rodents would find their way onboard a ship travelling internationally, bringing unwanted diseases to new areas." And even though today's high standards and inspections lessen the threat of communicable diseases spreading via ship, the problem still exists, and as such, inspections continue. "Overall the USNS Zeus satisfied the requirements of the shipboard sanitation inspection and earned their certificate which is good for another six months," said Araujo. "Until then, it's on to the next ship." Petty Officer 2nd Class Wilson Araujo, Naval Health Clinic Charleston preventive medicine technician, talks with. Samuel Hankins, a steward cook onboard USNS Zues (T-ARC-7), about sanitation standards Apr. 25, 2014, while the ship was in port Charleston, S.C. Araujo was conducting a shipboard sanitation inspection which is required for all USNS ships to dock internationally.

SAAM wraps up: Thank you Joint Base Charleston By Tiffany Mizzell Joint Base Charleston – Weapons Station Sexual Assault Response Coordinator

INSIDE

Sexual Assault Awareness Month wrapped up April 30. Each year the Sexual Assault Prevention & Response programs on the Air Base and Weapons Stations are challenged to dream big and find new and creative ideas to educate our service members and civilians about this plague among our ranks. The Air Base SAPR team hosted a 5K Fitness Challenge, Mary Lauterbach, who shared the story of her daughter’s tragic death, and trained hundreds of service members during SAPR Stand Down Day. The Weapons Station team hosted Chili Cook Offs, Kickball and Volleyball Tournaments, multiple 5Ks, their first ever Walk a Mile march, and $9,000 of goodwill donations will be provided to People Against Rape, the LowCountry’s local rape crisis center, and the Medical University of South Carolina’s Sexual Assault Nurse

HISTORY

Does what you do matter?

Examiner program on behalf of Joint Base Charleston – Weapons Station. Sexual Assault Awareness Month began as JB Charleston leadership signed proclamations to eliminate sexual assault within our ranks. The Clothesline Project, a vehicle for individuals affected by sexual violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt, was displayed throughout JB Charleston, representing the men and women impacted by this crime every day. SAPR programs presented the comedy show “Sex Signals”, and hosted appreciation luncheons to recognize their SAPR teams and those who support the programs. In 2004, the Department of Defense Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office was established to provide support services to military members of sexual assault and their adult dependents. The program also focuses on prevention efforts to reduce the number of sexual assaults in the military. Every U.S. military installation is required to provide a SAPR program.

grams here at JB Charleston. In 2012, the National Defense Authorization Act mandated that at least one full-time sexual assault civilian victim advocate be assigned to each installation. Sheila Bacon at the Air Base and Ruby Godley at the Weapons Station, as well as a team of volunteer SAPR victim advocates provide 24/7 response to adult victims. It is those volunteer advocates and local leadership that truly make these programs successful. In closing, I would like to thank everyone who assisted Florine, Sheila, Ruby and me, not only for your wonderful support and assistance this past month, but also in the months of preparation leading up to these events. But it doesn’t stop here. Sexual violence is a crime that “hurts one, affects all” year round. We challenge all of you to “live up to our values and step up to stop sexual assault.” If you have been a victim of sexual assault or would like more information on the services available please contact the DOD Safe Helpline at 1-877-995-5247.

COMMENTARY

Commentary by Gen. Larry Spencer Air Force Vice Chief of Staff

Every April we recognize Sexual Assault Awareness Month, using it as an opportunity to renew our commitment to treating each other with dignity and respect. I applaud and support the idea of a month focused on sexual assault prevention and response, or SAPR, but what we really need is everyone’s focus on this critical issue every day. Sexual assault is a crime and impacts the very trust and respect that is integral to our profession. For our Air Force to be successful, we must trust each other. All it takes is one incident of assault to break that bond of trust, but it takes all of us to work together to solve the issue. In the past 18 months we’ve emphasized the importance of treating each other with dignity and respect, and we’ve made progress through a renewed emphasis on training and education. We’ve seen a real difference in areas like the Special Victims Counsel Program, which provides individual legal support to victims of sexual assault and now serves as a model for the Department of Defense. Reporting of sexual assault allegations has increased, which we believe

is an indicator of increased trust and confidence in the reporting process. We’ve also seen an increase in the number of victims that convert to unrestricted reports, which we feel also indicates increased trust and confidence in our system. But, you won’t find us “high-fiving” our success. With that success and pride comes the unquenchable need to do more. None of us should be comfortable with the fact that we have sexual assaults occurring in our Air Force. And none of us should rest until that crime is eliminated; it’s everyone’s responsibility. Sexual predators are determined to carry out this offense and will do so unless you and I step in and stop it. We need to be on the lookout for those among us who would commit such a horrible crime. You may be aware of a former wing commander who recently left our Air Force following a series of incidents involving the compromise of integrity. On his last day in command, he sent a very poignant note to his Airmen. I was struck by the sentence that read, “If only one person had stood up and did or said something, the situation would have ended differently.” Sexual assault is no different. Bystander intervention can be a game changer. We need each of

you to be that one Airman willing to step forward when a situation starts heading in a bad direction. We need you to be part of the solution. We know that takes courage, but we also know you possess it because we see it every day. As you participate in SAPR month activities I offer a few thoughts for reflection. First, this battle against sexual assault is a marathon, not a sprint. This is not a program or a campaign that will go away in a few months -consider it an enduring effort that serves to honor the dignity and respect of all Airmen. Second, be a good wingman and watch each other’s back. Let those around you know that sexual assault will not be tolerated. Start by taking responsibility for your workplace and do not tolerate inappropriate or degrading remarks or the display of sexually explicit or suggestive materials. Thank you for all you do in service to our nation. As I have always said, every Airman counts, and I am relying on you. From the time you first put on your uniform until the time you leave the Air Force, I expect you to be committed to a culture of dignity and respect among all Airmen. We owe it to each other to honor the sacred bond of trust that unites us all as Airmen in our United States Air Force. Don’t let each other down.

From humble beginnings, our Eighteenth Air Force has grown into what I consider the Air Force's premier operationally-focused global command. For many in our military, "Eighteenth Air Force" is synonymous with operational Lt. Gen. Darren McDew excellence. We are a respected mission partner and an indispensable member of the world's finest joint team ... thanks to you! Evelyn and I have been privileged to be part of the journey, and to help our command grow in capability and prestige. We look forward to what the future holds for the command in the hands of an amazing officer who has earned our respect many times over: Major General Barbara Faulkenberry. Major General Faulkenberry's operational credentials are second to none. But more importantly, she is a visionary and bold LEADER - the right person

to take this great command into a challenging future. None of us can predict exactly what tomorrow will hold, but I know this much: the success of our great, global air mobility enterprise depends on strong leaders who are unafraid to take smart risks, who selflessly care for Airmen and families, and inspire a culture of dignity, respect, and excellence. By each of these measures, you can rest easy that the future of the 18th Air Force is in good hands ... Major General Faulkenberry's hands. In the days, weeks, and months to come I ask you to give her your full support, as you have me. Help her as you have helped me to take this amazing Eighteenth Air Force of ours to new heights. In the end, an organization reflects the people who lead it and the people who serve in it. There is no doubt that this amazing team will ensure Eighteenth Air Force continues to earn acclaim as not merely the Air Force's largest NAF ... but its best. As always, thank you for your continued service and dedication to our fellow Airmen, our command, and the world's finest Air Force!

Had a bystander (supervisor, co-worker, family member or friend) intervened, things might have turned out differently. The individual might have received the assistance they needed to recover from the adversity, but no one took the time to engage or help the member. So in essence, our actions or inactions matter. During World War II, more than 6 million Jews were murdered in Europe as a result of racial prejudice. Annually, federal, state, and local government organizations remember the Holocaust during the Days of Remembrance observance. Although many people did not actively participate in the cruel and inhumane treatment of Holocaust victims; many also did not take action to prevent the loss of lives, just as the individuals described in the scenario above. These individuals could have taken measures to mitigate or halt these acts, but instead, many stood by, took no action and

people died. One act or helping hand from one person could have saved at least one life. Just think of the number of lives that could have been spared if many more people had taken action. Did their actions matter? Yes, because a life which could have been saved, was perhaps lost. As a nation, we have always thrived on taking action to change things for the better. Hopefully, once these Days of Remembrance are over, we can walk away saying, "never again." I challenge you to take a stand when you see something that is wrong. If you see someone being discriminated against unlawfully, if you see someone violating a standard, or someone indirectly crying for help, take a stand and respond. Your actions do matter. You have the potential to save a life and shape a society.

Letter to Airmen: ‘Thank you for your courage’

Commentary by Lt. Gen. Darren McDew 18th Air Force commander

One of the defining characteristics of our Air Force's culture, and a key to our success, is the courage of our Airmen. Simply put, you persevere in the face of great challenges to do the right thing for our people, our service, and our Nation. To the courageous Airmen of our 18th Air Force: Thank You! You are the source of our strength and the pride of our Nation and I join countless numbers of your fellow citizens in thanking you for your service. That service is never easy, but in the midst of the challenges our military and Nation continue to face, it is even more admirable. As your commander, I have always expected a lot ... and you have never failed to deliver. In the coming months and years, your innovation and the culture of excellence we have forged together will be even more important. The future will require Airmen of great courage and I am confident you are the right ones to take on - and solve - our Nation's great tasks.

Learning from history — does what you do matter? Commentary by Toby Housey 628th Air Base Wing Equal Opportunity office

This year, April 27 through May, make up the Days of Remembrance, a time set aside each year to memorialize the victims of the Holocaust. The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has identified the 2014 theme as "Confronting the Holocaust: American Responses," a very appropriate theme as the U.S. decision to take action in World War II saved many lives. To fully understand the impact of action versus inaction, imagine an Airman experiences a traumatic event in his or her life which affects their ability to accomplish their job and effectively function as a member of society. The individual's performance suffers and the symptoms or indirect cry for help is ignored. The individual ultimately succumbs to the trauma and does the unthinkable.

Diamond Tip: Change for the better

Commentary by Master Sgt. Mark O'Brien 15th Airlift Squadron first sergeant

The one constant in today's military is change. We are faced with changes from all directions that affect us in many different ways. One such change affecting our Airman's lives is the current Force Management program. How will our bodies and mind deal with the uncertainty and change associated with Force Management initiatives? I would say it will depend on several factors that you can help mitigate. Change can add hidden stress in our lives, adversely affect our health and in its most severe form even lead to death. Some of the common effects of stress will cause you to feel tired, lower your immune system and make you more susceptible to illnesses. And of course, stress will have an impact on the way you perform at work. A little stress can also be good for us too. How? Simply put, stress can act as a motivator to overcome challenges and can keep us focused on the important aspects of our job. Remembering a few of the basics you were taught about stress will enable you to better cope with the stressors in your life. The following examples provide some easy ways to minimize stress: 1. Always have your uniform prepped and ready... don't give anyone the opportunity to correct you for being out of standards. 2. Make it an emphasis to always be on time for duty and make all required appointments. You can add a lot of undue stress in your life by just being late.

3. Have your game face on during your daily duties. 4. Take pride in ownership for everything you do, even if you do not personally own it. 5. Take some extra time exploring the technical data prior to working on that aircraft. 6. Bring your cold/wet weather gear to work with you to roll with the changing elements. 7. Try to pencil in some extra time for completing your annual CBTs, or pre-deployment training early; don't let it creep upon you at the last minute. And most importantly, always make time for your family. When you hang up your uniform for the last time, ensure you can turn and kiss the family that got you there. Finally, always strive and find ways to be in good health (spiritually, socially, physically and mentally). You may find it difficult coping with change; if so, a friend can make a good sounding board, but maybe you are in need of more than just advice from friends. If this is the case, the base has many agencies to assist you. Your supervisor, your commander, your first sergeant, Chaplain and mental health professionals are always there in time of need. And try not to use alcohol to cope; you cannot find happiness at the bottom of a bottle. If you find yourself drinking to excess, I urge you to pursue one of those aforementioned members and/or agencies. Nothing stressful is worth your peace of mind. Stay strong Joint Base Charleston!

American democracy and the rule of law: Why every vote matters

From 628th Air Base Wing and 315th Airlift Wing Judge Advocates

In 1958, President Dwight Eisenhower established Law Day as a day of national dedication to the principles of government under law. In 1961, Congress, by joint resolution, designated May 1 as the official date for celebrating Law Day. This year, in celebration of the 50th anniversaries of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the 2014 Law Day theme is American Democracy and the Rule of Law: Why Every Vote Matters. The 15th Amendment, ratified in 1870, prohibited the abridgment of the right to vote on the basis of race. From 1876 to 1965, the southern states enacted Jim Crow laws as a way to deprive black Americans the right to vote. The Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, overruled these laws and required jurisdictions with a history of discrimination to get federal preclearance before enacting new voting procedures. The provision within the Voting Rights Act requiring federal preclearance was overruled by the June 2013 Supreme Court case, Shelby County v. Holder. The woman suffrage movement began in 1848, when the first women's rights convention was held in Seneca Falls, N.Y. Over the next 50 years, suffrage supporters worked under the leadership of Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and other women's rights pioneers circulating petitions and lobbying Congress to pass a constitutional amendment that would allow women the right to vote. The 19th Amendment, prohibiting the denial of the right to vote on account of sex, was ratified in 1920. President Franklin Roosevelt lowered the minimum age for the draft to 18 during World War II. At that time, the minimum voting age was determined at the state level, which had historically been 21. The 1970 Supreme Court case, Oregon v. Mitchell ruled that Congress had the right to regulate the minimum age in federal elections, but not in state or local elections. In 1971, in response to public protests and dissatisfaction with young men and women being subject to the draft, but not having the right to vote, the 26th Amendment, lowering the voting age to 18, was passed, ratified and signed into law. This year, as we celebrate American Democracy and the Rule of Law, we leave you with these words of wisdom:

"Democracy cannot succeed unless those who express their choice are prepared to choose wisely. The real safeguard of democracy, therefore, is education." - Franklin Roosevelt. "Half of the American people never read a newspaper. Half never voted for President. One hopes it is the same half." - Gore Vidal

Guest Submissions: Eliza Stanley and Julia McAtee are 7th grade students at Christ Our King Stella Maris School. The legal office extended the opportunity to multiple schools in the Charleston area to participate in a writing competition in support of Law Day. The articles were selected for their quality and content. The students were also extended the opportunity to tour the legal office and receive a photo with the Staff Judge Advocate.

Why every vote counts: The Fifteenth Amendment By: Eliza Stanley, 7th grade at Christ Our King Stella Maris The 15th Amendment states that the government cannot deny a person the right to vote because of race, color or previous condition of servitude. All persons are born equal; thus, all should have the right to vote. Limiting the basic right to cast a vote because of race or color was fundamentally wrong. It was a mistake, which has, thankfully, been corrected. The importance of this amendment is that it removed a barrier to full participation in the American form of government. God created all people equal and our Constitution now protects that right of full participation. Those that were denied the right to participate in government now have it. Voting in elections is voicing an opinion on what direction America should go. Including all people in the electoral process promotes better ideas and better government. In America, we celebrate the voting process. Casting ballots by all ensures the success of our government. Not voting, not participating in government weakens our democratic system. Every vote counts. Through the 15th Amendment, race and color cannot be used as a way to silence others' beliefs and ideas for America. Everyone can exercise this God-given right. When elections are open to all citizens, the will of the people is truly heard. America is a nation created by people of various races and colors, and all their voices should be heard. Why Every Vote Counts: The 19th Amendment

By: Julia McAtee, 7th grader at Christ Our King Stella Maris School Every vote matters because we all play a role in our politics and society. If all citizens, male and female, take an active part in the electing of our public servants, then most likely we will see our needs met locally as well as in the federal government. We have the right to express our needs and beliefs through our elections. The 19th Amendment which gives women the right to vote is crucial by ensuring that they can play an active role in our nation's politics. Women make up about 50 percent of the nation and half of America's work force. With this kind of power, it would be an absolute abomination if all the voting was left solely to males. Men and women offer differing insights into the world around us. Many men are taught that using emotional reasoning is somehow wrong and they should eliminate compassion when making choices. The 19th Amendment guarantees that both genders' voices are heard through the electoral process. Women's issues and their points of view can help change America for the better. Women make a difference when they cast their votes and stand up for the rights of themselves and others. Through voting, women are helping change perceived gender roles that our society's patriarchal hegemony has set in place. With the 19th Amendment, women are making a difference by enacting change in how America sees women. Through women voting, they are bringing about change for better or for worse, but it is their God-given, constitutional right to do so.

Putting out fires: All in a day’s work for JB Charleston’s leaders Story and photo by Senior Airman Dennis Sloan Joint Base Charleston Public Affairs

The 628th Air Base Wing leadership is taking the saying, 'Walk a mile in my shoes,' to heart as they visit units around Joint Base Charleston. They aren't just touring facilities or watching Airmen conduct exercises; they are getting right in the heat of things. "We thought it was important to get that time in the unit, getting to know our teammates, getting a better understanding of what they do on a daily basis and having the opportunity to thank them for what they bring to the fight," said Chief Master Sgt. Mark Bronson, 628th ABW command chief. With that thought in mind, the 628th Civil Engineer Squadron fire department put 628th ABW leadership through

Col. Jeffrey DeVore, Joint Base Charleston commander, Navy Capt. Timothy Sparks, JB Charleston deputy commander, Master Chief Petty Officer Joseph Gardner, Naval Support Activity command master chief, and Chief Master Sgt. Mark Bronson, 628th Air Base Wing command chief, visited the 628th Civil Engineer Squadron Fire Department where they trained on an aircraft simulator April 27, 2014, at the JB Charleston Fire Department. The 628th Air Base Wing leadership visit units as part of a program designed to give base leaders a taste of what Airmen and Sailors do at their job centers every day.

their aircraft fire pit training exercise. Leadership included: Col. Jeffrey DeVore, JB Charleston commander, Navy Capt. Timothy Sparks, JB Charleston deputy commander, Master Chief Petty Officer Joseph Gardner, Naval Support Activity command master chief, and Chief Master Sgt. Mark Bronson, 628th ABW command chief. It didn't take long before the command team found themselves inside a steel aircraft fighting multiple fires with temperatures reaching more than 800 degrees Fahrenheit. "The heat was definitely intense but the fire suits protected us well," said Bronson. "Our masks fogged up pretty quickly once we entered the aircraft and it was tough to navigate and sweep the fire without being able to see." "Safety is a huge part of all training we conduct," said Master Sgt. Craig Spears, 628th CES Fire Department assistant chief of training. "Outside of fitting leadership with proper gear, conducting fit test on our Self Contained Breathing Apparatus and general safety briefings, we followed our established safety protocols." Each member was properly fitted with safety gear and a breathing mask as well as given a safety briefing before getting near the training aircraft. "It felt good to show our leaders first-hand what we do on a regular basis, and to see them put out those fires, especially with the turret," said Staff Sgt. Kirt Wallace, 628th CES fire department fire fighter. "I was impressed with how they did." Two members from leadership and a highly skilled 628th CES fire fighter fought fires with a truck and a turret from outside the aircraft before entering the aircraft and extinguishing fires inside. "For first timers they did very well," said Spears. Spears jokingly followed his previous comment up with, "I am not sure they are ready to man a truck at this point, but they definitely have potential." When the fires were extinguished and leadership exited the aircraft, Airmen from the 628th CES assisted them with removing the safety gear and shared with one another how the training exercise went. "I loved the experience," said Bronson. "I already had a lot of respect for what they do and that increased 10 fold. Managing the fire hose in tight spaces, unable to see and with the dangers of the fire make their job extremely difficult."

Security Forces implements traffic citation changes Courtesy of 628th Security Forces Squadron

Change is coming to Joint Base Charleston - Weapons Station. Effective June 1, 2014, the 628th Security Forces Squadron will begin issuing United States District Court Violation Notices, also known as Central Violations Bureau Form 1805. This form is used when it is determined an offender will be prosecuted for a minor offense, including traffic offenses, before a U.S. Magistrate under AFI 51-905, Use of US Magistrates for Trial of Misdemeanors Committed by Civilians. These forms will only be issued to civilians suspected of a crime or traffic violation on the Weapons Station for now. "Most civilians on the Weapons Station will not notice the change, unless they are pulled over for a traffic infraction or

suspected of a crime" said Capt. Jonathan Blount, 628th SFS operations officer. There are two different citations that can be issued on JB Charleston for traffic offenders: Department of Defense Form 1408, Armed Forces Traffic Ticket and CVB Form 1805, United States District Court Violation Notice. Active-duty military, Guard and reservists on active status who commit an infraction will receive a DD Form 1408. This citation has no monetary penalty for violations, but the standard reporting instructions are to report this violation to their commander and first sergeant within 24 hours or immediately upon returning to duty. Along with having to report this violation to their chain of command, there is a base driving privilege points system against which violations are assessed, affecting the person's base driving record. But civilians operating Privately Owned Vehicles on JB Charleston, as well as Guard and reservists not on active status, civilians, DOD employees, dependents, retirees and contractors, are subject to South Carolina traffic laws, just as they are off the installation. The CVB 1805 allows SFS to enforce these laws through issuing citations with fines ranging from $25 to $500 or more, with a $25 processing fee added to the citation penalty.

Along with this citation violators may receive a "must appear" citation, where they are required to appear in front of a magistrate judge in traffic court located in down town Charleston. Violators issued a CVB 1805 are also subject to the same driving privileges point system as previously stated. Civilians will still be issued DD Form 1408s for violations involving cell phone use while driving on the installation, parking violations or while operating a government vehicle.

Joint Base Charleston colors the town

By Jessica Donnelly 628th Force Support Squadron Marketing

It looks as though a fog has settled over Joint Base Charleston - Weapons Station, except this fog is brightly colored. As the cloud clears, multicolored, smiling faces of Sailors, Airmen and their families are left behind. Approximately 300 people participated in the 5K Paint Run at the Weapons Station April 26 as part of a free fun-run event hosted by Sam’s Fitness Center and the JB Charleston Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program. “Let’s all have a great time and have some fun,” exclaimed Navy Capt. Timothy Sparks, JB Charleston deputy commander, before the start of the race. So, with a handful of the colored powder, runners lined up and on the announcement of “Go!” turned the start line into a cloud of blue before taking off toward the first paint station. “I’m not a runner, but I want to try and I wanted to do something fun as my first race,” said Chief Petty Officer Dwayne Evans, Naval Nuclear Power School instructor. “Running gets boring and I thought doing something fun would take the pain away.” With the increasing popularity of other paint runs across the nation, JB Charleston wanted to bring that opportunity to its service members. So, a former fitness employee introduced the concept and with the success of the first year, they decided to bring it back in 2014. “We offered the same run in May 2013 and there were close to 400 people who attended that event,” said Greg Lutz, Weapons Station Fitness, Sports and Aquatic director. Lutz explained that the color being thrown was made up of two powder stations and two wet paint stations, both types being non-toxic and machine washable. The volunteers working the paint stations included staff and students from the Naval Nuclear Power School at the WS and Sam’s Fitness Center staff, as well as friends and family members who wanted to be part of the excitement. However, not only was the run meant to bring the community together for a fun event, it also had an important cause behind it. “This paint run is used to bring awareness to sexual assault prevention,” said Sparks. “It is a very serious topic that we all need to be informed of.” For more information on the JB Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program, visit their website at: www.charleston.af. mil/jbcharlestonsexualassaultprevention&responseprogram JB Charleston hosts numerous races throughout the year at the Weapons Station and Air Base to promote health and test Team Charleston’s fitness abilities. Contact Sam’s Fitness Center on the Weapons Station or the Fitness and Sports Center on the Air Base for more information.

Approximately 300 service members, family and friends came out to the 5K Paint Run at Joint Base Charleston - Weapons Station April 26, for the free fun-run event hosted by Sam's Fitness Center and JB Charleston Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program. — at JB Charleston - WS.

From the 628th Security Forces Squadron

Have you ever wondered how roads get their name? For Wilkinson Way on Joint Base Charleston - Weapons Station, the name is in honor of Police Officer Frank Wilkinson Jr. On Dec. 16, 1993, Wilkinson was struck and killed by a drunk driver while exiting his patrol car. He was providing back up to another officer assisting a disabled vehicle on Dorchester Road at the entrance to the former Hunley Park Naval Housing. After striking Wilkinson, the suspect stopped the vehicle and was taken into custody and subsequently found guilty of manslaughter. Wilkinson had served in law enforcement for a total of 19 years prior to his death and was survived by his five daughters. In late 2013, Department of the Air Force Police Officer Logan Ashley and other members of the 628th Security Forces Squadron sprang into action after a memorial to Wilkinson was destroyed during a traffic accident in 2012. Ashley designed a new memorial with donations from offbase police agencies and, along with a team of defenders, spent countless hours building the new Officer Wilkinson Memorial. Slated for completion this May, the Officer
