C-17 Globemaster III, Aircraft 9192, is doused with water by fire trucks during a ceremony Dece. 18, 2013, at Joint Base Charleston – Air Base, S.C. The aircraft, nicknamed the “Spirit of Charleston,” was the first C-17 in the U.S. Air Force’s inventory and has flown missions throughout the world for more than two decades. Those missions have totaled more than 20,000 flight hours.

Airlift milestone: JB Charleston C-17 reaches 20,000 flight hours By Senior Airman Tom Brading Joint Base Charleston Public Affairs

The first C-17 Globemaster III to join the Air Force fleet, "The Spirit of Charleston," reached new heights recently by logging more than 20,000 flight hours. This achievement marks the first C-17 to reach this milestone, and to honor the achievement Team Charleston celebrated with a small ceremony Dec. 18, 2013, at JB Charleston - Air Base, S.C. "Prior to an expected service life extension, a C-17 is estimated to fly 30,000 flight hours during its service," said Norman Moore, 437th Maintenance Group deputy director. "Even though The Spirit of Charleston has been through two thirds of its expected run, it still has a long life ahead." "Today is an important milestone both for our Air Force and for aviation history in general," said Col. Darren Hartford, 437th Airlift Wing commander. "And, while we celebrate this historical achievement, let us remember that this 20,000 hour feat has far less to do with the crafted aluminum, composites, and super alloys that make up the C-

17 behind me, and everything to do with the brave men and women who fix, fill, and fly it, all over the world, every day, in service to our nation." "The Spirit of Charleston" career began upon its arrival at Charleston Air Force Base on Flag Day, June 14, 1993. The aircraft, 9192, spent its first two years at Charleston AFB being used for training of maintenance and aircrew personnel until its first call to action in 1995, during Operation Joint Endeavor in Bosnia and Herzegovina. "During Joint Endeavor, 9192, along with other aircraft, was operating in the harsh, cold climate of western Europe in an actual combat environment while landing on unimproved runways," said Moore. "The unique capabilities and maintainability made it a force multiplier that showed its potential of meeting future challenges." Future challenges quickly arose during Operation Scorpion I, II, III and IV from 1997 to 1998 (in response to Saddam Hussein's defiance of not allowing weapons inspectors into Iraq), Operation Joint See Milestone, Page 4

JB Charleston Sailors respond to local vet in need Story and photo by Petty Officer 3rd Class Jason Pastrick Naval Nuclear Power Training Command public affairs

With the sounds and smells of a backyard barbecue filling the air, nearly 50 people gathered for a steak dinner in an unassuming room in the LowCountry Chief Petty Officer Association building on Joint Base Charleston - Weapons Station. Conversations, laughs and a meal were shared by individuals of all ages in the tightly packed dining area. The full-house seating was evidence that this dinner served not only to satisfy the hunger of these people, but to answer the much deeper call to help a fellow service member in need. This past November, a television news program aired the story of Walker Grainger, a 74-year-old Army veteran who has been living without power and water since March, 2012. Grainger stays warm by burying himself in blankets and staying in bed until noon when the sun finally warms his home. On especially cold days, Grainger indulges in the luxury of briefly running his car to be temporarily warmed by the heater. After hearing the story, local service members opened their hearts and their wallets to help a struggling veteran. "We've only had about a week to put everything together, but our chiefs, retirees and submarine veterans have really come together to support and help out," said Master Chief Petty Officer Robert Bostic, Naval Consolidated Brig Charleston command master chief. Bostic and his fellow Navy chiefs took to the grills and offered up steak dinners as a fundraiser in hopes of making a difference. Some in attendance were already familiar with Grainger's story from the local news story, but many arrived only with a word-of-mouth understanding that a veteran had fallen on hard times. These Sailors gathered to help their brother-in-arms regardless of the branch he served in. Their desire to help him crossed both generational gaps and military branches. "Anytime I hear something like this, I'm willing to help," said retired Chief Petty Officer Joe Lunn, a member of United States Submarine Veterans Inc., the nation's second-largest organization for submarine veterans located in Charleston. And junior service members on JB Charleston, those who are just starting their military career, had a first-hand opportunity to see and understand the bonds formed by those who have served before them. "It's good for the young Sailors to see a legacy like this - good to see where you're going," said retired Petty Officer 2nd Class Ronnie Kerstetter, also a member of the USSVI. "You don't see this camaraderie when you're first starting out, but it builds over time and really develops continuity and cohesiveness." The steak dinner event raised nearly $1,500, all of which was donated to Grainger. However, more can be done. If you would like to help, call Veronica Macias at 297-2970.

COMMENTARY

Commentary by Col. Jeffrey DeVore Joint Base Charleston commander

Dear Santa, I probably didn't make the nice list this year ... again ... but I do have some holiday requests (all in good fun, of course) ... so if the elves haven't been furloughed ... can you hook me up? For the 437th Airlift Wing and 315th AW, we need blue skies, tailwinds, more flying hours, cool trips, new tools sets, more ARTs, some working cranes and a new passenger terminal. Oh, and a leash for the 16th Airlift Squadron to keep that Lion out of my front yard. For our Defenders, we could use a new shooting range, a few more barrier systems at the gates, and some Nerf guns. For the Civil Engineers, we would like some more MILCON $$, no more power outages at the Weapons Station, and a Dalmatian puppy for each fire truck. I was thinking for the Contracting folks we could get a fireworks machine

Take time to stop and wind the clock Commentary by Col. Michael Mongold Mission Support Group commander

When writing an article, I try to consider what people are interested enough in to motivate them to keep reading versus moving on to the next article. In today's fast-paced world, everything moves at light-speed, so I'm guessing you will afford me about 10 seconds or less of your valuable time before you decide to keep reading or move on. Wow, talk about pressure! Do you want to read about my opinion on the most recent leadership book or article? Should I share a personal experience that you may be able to relate to? Should I focus on our recently completed inspections or talk about safety and the upcoming holiday season? The list is extensive, your time is not. We have all been told that communication is a two way street. For it to be effective, you must have both, an active sender and a receiver ... one without the other equals a communication break-down. Therefore I ask only one thing from you; take a breather, take a minute, slow-down and keep reading. At worst you give me two or three minutes of your time, but on the up-side you may gain a new perspective in which to consider the world and events around you. So by now (if I have garnered your attention), you are wondering, what does the title imply,

Be a Wingman's 'ghost' during holiday season Commentary by Master Sgt. Jason Davis 451st Expeditionary Mission Support Group

KANDAHAR AIRFIELD, Afghanistan – I need each of you to be a "ghost" to your Wingman during this holiday season. No, that doesn't mean I want you to "disappear" when it's convenient for you-quite the opposite. Let me explain by saying, "Bah, humbug!" Dickens' classic Ebenezer Scrooge character perhaps sums up what your Wingman might be thinking right now. It could be "Bah, humbug" about the deployment, home station issues, guilt of not being home with family, or a variety of endless things that are dragging down your Wingman. The holidays are a joyous period for most of us. The commander and I have been making our rounds to check on everybody. The men and women of the 451st EMSG seem to be in good spirits, and I'm sure most of the positive feedback we're getting is genuine. We're also both realists enough to know that a suffering Airman might not speak up about personal problems when the boss and first sergeant come around. That's where we're counting on Wingmen to be ghosts. It was 170 years ago that Dickens wrote about the adventures of Ebenezer Scrooge in "A Christmas Carol." Scrooge is a bitter man who despises the holidays. One night, he is visited by three ghosts (four if you count Jacob Marely's initial visit). The ghosts are Christmas past, Christmas present and Christmas future (yet to come). As a Wingman, you can take the form of any of these ghosts.

Maybe your Wingman is upset about something that has already happened. It might be loneliness this time of year because of a loved one who passed or a relationship that ended. Whatever it is, your Wingman might just need an ear to tell the story. Be that ghost of holidays past. Lend an ear. You might just learn something. Perhaps your Wingman's problems are current. There could be financial issues at home. It could be the first holiday season away from family. We all react differently to different stressors. A situation that might drive you to work out more or take a college course might drive your Wingman into depression and anxiety. Be the ghost of holidays present. Offer to take that struggling Wingman to dinner or the gym with you. Find out what makes your Wingman tick, and get involved. Nothing is as scary for some people as the future. It wasn't more than a few days back we all found out about some upcoming force shaping programs. Do you think that doesn't have some Airmen stressed out? Some Airmen might know they'll be deployed for big events like weddings and birthdays. That could be a downer too. Be the ghost of holidays yet to come. Talk through the issues and don't be afraid to walk you Wingman to the Chaplain or other trusted counsel. "Men's courses will foreshadow certain ends, to which, if persevered in, they must lead," said Scrooge. "But if the courses be departed from, the ends will change. Say it is thus with what you show me" Show your Wingman that the ends can and will change. Be a ghost this holiday season by appearing to a Wingman in need.

Sailors and families track Santa From Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairs

MILLINGTON, Tenn. – With the holidays in full swing, many Sailors are searching for ways to stay connected with their children while away on deployment. This year, families can establish a new holiday tradition by tracking Santa Claus's travels. OPNAV N171 has partnered up with North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) for its 58th annual "NORAD Tracks Santa" campaign, offering Sailors and families a fun way to stay connected this holiday season no matter where they are in the world. Through Facebook, www.facebook.com/navstress, Navy Operational Stress Control will help families follow Santa's whereabouts as he embarks on his annual Christmas trip around the world. The NavStress Facebook page will also host NORAD Tracks Santa coloring pages for families to download and enjoy at home. Navy children are encouraged to upload and email their completed coloring pages to their deployed loved ones to spread holiday joy. Completed NORAD Tracks Santa coloring pages can also be uploaded to the "Tracking Santa" photo album on the NavStress Facebook page to be shared with the entire Navy community, and maybe even Santa himself. "Holiday traditions are important to our families," said Capt. Kurt Scott, OPNAV N171 branch head. "Maintaining them can be challenging when

Sailors are deployed and away from home for months on end. I spent many holidays away from my family as a young officer, and establishing new traditions was the best way to ease the pain of separation for all of us. Engaging with 'NORAD Tracks Santa' offers a way for Sailors and their children to 'connect' and follow Santa all over the globe, so they can still feel like an active part of the family's holiday activities and create meaningful memories." The newly redesigned "NORAD U.S. Navy photo / Seaman Kris Lindstrom Tracks Santa" website, www.noradsanSanta Claus takes the helm on the bridge of the aircraft carrier ta.org, went live Dec. 1 and features a USS Theodore Roosevelt.

Charleston proves readiness through new AF inspection program By 1st Lt. Chris Love Joint Base Charleston Public Affairs

Airmen from Joint Base Charleston demonstrated their readiness before higher headquarters inspectors during a week-long, “Capstone” visit culminating Dec. 13, 2013, at the air base. The 315th Airlift Wing, 437th AW and 628th Air Base Wing each underwent its own unit effectiveness inspection, with all three earning overall scores of “effective” for meeting or exceeding standards. Joint Base Charleston is the second installation in Air Mobility Command to undergo such an inspection since the Air Force revamped its inspection process in June 2013, to emphasize mission-readiness rather than inspection-readiness. “This system empowers our wings so they are more focused on getting their mission accomplished, managing their resources well, leading their people and improving their unit," said Col. Kyle Voigt, AMC command deputy inspector general, noting the four major areas in which units receive evaluation. In each of the areas, the three wings earned

at least an effective and in some cases a “highly effective.” Col. Jeffrey DeVore, 628th ABW commander, applauded his wing for its efforts during an all call Dec. 16. “You guys worked hard on these inspections, you worked hard on the Capstone visit, and I wanted you to see first-hand the result of your work,” DeVore said. “Congratulations to all of you - you made it happen. That wasn’t me; it was 100 percent team effort.” Col. James Fontanella, 315th AW commander, voiced similar praise toward his unit. “I was very confident that the men and women of the 315th would showcase our top-notch mission readiness and program management. As always, we continue to move this mission while the enterprise successfully transitions,” Fontanella said, referring to the strategic airlift support his wing provides the U.S. military. Although the Capstone visit marked the end of months of work, it’s only a signpost along a continuous road of unit-led compliance inspections. "The men and women of Team Charleston

Col. Jeffery DeVore, Joint Base Charleston commander, speaks to 628th Air Base Wing Airmen at an all call Dec.16, 2013, at JB Charleston, S.C. The all call was held to congratulate Team Charleston on receiving a grade of "Effective" on the recent Unit Effectiveness Inspection. The 315th Airlift Wing, 437th AW and 628th Air Base Wing each underwent its own unit effectiveness inspection, with all three earning overall scores of “effective” for meeting or exceeding standards.

work hard every day to make the mission happen; hence, I was confident we would be successful," said Lt. Col. Alexandria Watson, 628th Air Base Wing inspector general. "I think we should celebrate this accomplishment but keep in mind our continued successwill hinge upon establishing and maintaining a continuous process of honest and transparent self-assessment." In addition to the UEI, Team Charleston also conducted a Combined Cyber Readiness Inspection, Food Vulnerability Inspection and

a further Vulnerability Assessment, all of which resulted in “great feedback,” said DeVore. Not only did the 628th Communication Squadron perform well on its CCRI, but it became the first installation in the Department of Defense to earn an excellent. “You have made the Joint Base Charleston team proud,” DeVore said, “and your strength was not in your words but in your actions. Congratulations to all, and thanks for ‘protecting our house.’”

C-17 Globemaster III, Aircraft 9192, is doused with water by fire trucks during a ceremony Dec. 18, 2013, at Joint Base Charleston – Air Base, S.C. The aircraft, nicknamed the “Spirit of Charleston� was the first C-17 in the U.S. Air Force’s inventory and has flown missions throughout the world for more than two decades. Those missions have totaled more than 20,000 flight hours. The 437th Airlift Wing held a ceremony for aircraft 9192 Dec. 18, 2013, at Joint Base Charleston – Air Base, S.C.

James Fontanella, 315th Airlift Wing commander, answers questions during an interview at the aircraft 9192’s 20,000 Flight Hours ceremony, Dec. 18, 2013, at Joint Base Charleston – Air Base, S.C.

Milestone reached for ‘Spirit of Charleston’ - from Page 1 U.S. Air Force photo / Staff Sgt. Anthony Hyatt

Guardian in 1999 (insertion of NATO peacekeeping forces into Kosovo) and Operation Allied Force in 1999 (NATO bombing in Yugoslavia.) "The combat contingencies and humanitarian efforts were increased after the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001," said Moore. "Those missions ranged from air-dropping food packets in 2001 during Operation Enduring Freedom, to Operation Anaconda in 2002, which was the first full-scale battle in Afghanistan against Al-Qaida; then Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, with the invasion of Iraq." Every step of the way, the C-17 fleet from Charleston, including "The Spirit of Charleston," was at the tip of the spear, leading the way in air mobility. "Aircraft 9192 has been around the world many times, for a variety of reasons, including many humanitarian efforts during natural disasters," said Moore. "These missions include numerous relief efforts during Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Sandy, the Haitian and Chilean earthquakes, the Japanese tsunami, flood ravaged Pakistan ... and the list goes on." Moore added, "The Spirit of Charleston" has accumulated

U.S. Air Force photo / Staff Sgt. Anthony Hyatt

more than 20,000 flight hours and has been stationed at Charleston more than 20 years. However, it has been maintained and flown by personnel from McChord AFB, Wash., JB McGuire - Dix - Lakehurst, N.J., Dover AFB, Del., Travis AFB, Calif., JB Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii, Elmendorf AFB, Ala. and other bases around the world. It will continue in the Air Force inventory for decades to come as a viable deterrent against enemy aggression as well as a sign of hope for those in need. "The consistent excellent efforts of our Airmen made this milestone possible," said Col. James Fontanella, 315th Airlift Wing commander. "This accomplishment was truly a total force effort. I expect the C-17 to continue its dominance as the Air Force's premier strategic airlift." The milestone of reaching 20,000 flight hours is a testament to much more than one aircraft, but also to the efforts of countless Airmen along the way who ensure each aircraft in the AMC inventory is capable and mission ready at a moment's notice. According to Moore, none of this would be possible without the hard work of the maintenance workers who keep the mission moving every day.

"This achievement is a win for everyone at JB Charleston," said Moore. "We're a team, and without the maintainers working in extreme weather conditions; from 2 a.m. and frigid winter conditions with freezing hands, to the blistering summer months with more than 100 degree temperatures. They are out there working in all environments, and without them, the mission wouldn't be possible." "This is about much more than one aircraft reaching 20,000 flight hours," said Moore. "This milestone represents the Air Force's entire C-17 fleet. It shows the world that at any time, for any reason, when a C-17 is involved, a yellow Charleston tail flash will be on the aircraft that leads the way." "I am both humbled and proud to be a part of such a monumental milestone for the C-17, but more importantly, for the men and women of Joint Base Charleston." said Hartford. "While 20,000 hours is a tremendous feat for any airframe, it is a truer testament of the blood, sweat and tears of all the Airmen in the 437th and 315th. I would like to commend all those past, present and future Airmen who make our mission possible. Safe, precise, reliable. 20,000 hours and beyond."

A Look Back: Highlights of 2013 at JB Charleston

From Joint Base Charleston Public Affairs

Triskaidekaphobia: fear of the number 13. Normally, fear of the number 13 is related to Friday the 13th, but, there were moments in 2013 that made it seem like this past year was one long continuous series of Friday the 13th movies. From sequestration to furloughs and budget shortfalls, 2013 turned out to be one of the most challenging in Joint Base Charleston’s young existence. But there were many other newsworthy

events that put our mission back into focus, clarified why it was exactly we came (or wanted to come) to work every day. Activeduty, reservists, civilian … we are all part of an organization much bigger than ourselves and we continued to push forward despite all the obstacles we encountered. So although it is relatively easy to remember the “bad” things, here is a quick look back at some of the top stories and successes we saw in 2013. (1) Team work at its best: When the fur-

My college doesn’t just thank me for my military service. They give me the credit I deserve.

lough hit, Sailors participated in the security forces augmentee training class consisting of M-9 pistol qualification training, properly checking identification cards, apprehending personnel and conducting vehicle searches, all to assist the 628th Security Forces Squadron in maintaining base security. (2) Saving lives: In March, Col. Richard McComb, former Joint Base Charleston commander, along with Col. Darren Hartford, 437th Airlift Wing commander, signed the DUI Battle Plan, a comprehensive campaign aimed at reducing drunk driving and reinforcing positive life choices. The battle plan was modeled after a campaign launched at Travis Air Force Base, Calif. http://www.charleston. af.mil/news/story.asp?id=123340772 (3) Last Abrams Tank comes home: Another event showcasing the importance of Joint Base Charleston as one of the Department of Defense’s major shipping hubs was the arrival of the last Abrams tank April 10, 2013. The return of the last Abrams tanks coincided with the deactivation of two of the Army's heavy brigades in Germany. The 841st Transportation Battalion received and offloaded the final shipment of Abrams battle tanks to be moved to the West Coast, ending the 69-year history of the United States Army having their main battle tanks on German soil. http://www.charleston.af.mil/ news/story.asp?id=123344656 (4) It was a dreary April day when the remains of U.S. Army Chief Warrant Officer 5th Class Curtis Reagan of Summerville returned home. Reagan died March 29, 2013, in Kandahar, Afghanistan. But the rain did not stop hundreds of JB Charleston Airmen and civilians from displaying their heartfelt grief as they lined the streets in a pouring rain to pay their final respects to this fallen American hero. http://www.charleston.af.mil/news/ story.asp?id=123343703 (5) Anytime the Air Force and the Navy’s senior enlisted visit a base, it’s sure to bring out large crowds to hear their thoughts on the way ahead. This year we saw the Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy Michael Stevens visit the Weapons Station http://www.charleston.af.mil/news/story.asp? id=123342726 and Chief Master Sgt. Of the Air Force James Cody visited the Air Base http://www.charleston.af.mil/news/story.asp? id=123348261. Both leaders used their visits to talk to Sailors and Airmen about budget and personnel issues. (6) C-17s arrive: The next to the next to the last C-17 arrived April 25, http://www.charleston.af.mil/news/story.asp? id=123346126. The next to the last C-17 arrived May 30 http://www.charleston.af.mil/ news/story.asp?id=123351093. And, the final United States Air Force C-17 to roll off the Boeing assembly line landed at JB Charleston Sept. 12 in front of a crowd of almost 2,000 guests, who watched the plane flyover, land and taxi through a spray of fire-hoses before shutting down. http://www.charleston.af.mil/

news/story.asp?id=123363230. (7) Changes of command: 2013 saw 13 changes of command at units across the Joint Base. The 628th welcomed Col. Jeffrey DeVore as the JB Charleston commander as well as Navy Capt. Timothy Sparks, the new JB Charleston deputy commander. The 437th saw the arrival of a new command chief and the Naval Support Activity/Weapons Station welcomed a new command master chief. Additionally, numerous squadrons and other tenant commands saw leadership changes. (8) Welcomed visitors: It seems like everyone wants to visit JB Charleston. Distinguished guests this year included Gen. Paul Selva, Air Mobility Command commander and Maj. Gen. William Bender, U.S. Air Force Expeditionary Center commander. The Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel addressed civilians during an open-discussion forum and a question and answer session focusing on sequestration and furloughs and Maj. Gen. Frederick Martic, U.S. Air Force Expeditionary Center commander conducted a two-day visit. Oh, and Brooke Shields was on base playing a colonel during her appearance in the show Army Wives http://www.charleston.af.mil/news/story.asp? id=123338023. (9) The Air Force revamped its inspection program in June 2013, and Airmen from Joint Base Charleston were some of the first be inspected. Charleston scored a “hat trick,” with the 315th, 437th and 628th wings earning “Effective” ratings overall. Meanwhile, the 628th Communications Squadron blew inspectors away, earning the first “excellent” on the new Combined Cyber Readiness Inspection DOD-wide. (10) Finally, just before year’s end, Aircraft 89-1192 reached an Air Force milestone this December when it became the first C-17 to reach 20,000 flying hours. That’s 833 days in the air, or 2.28 years. This aircraft began flying before many of our Airmen were born. What an outstanding testament to the dedication, expertise and skills of the maintainers who have kept this magnificent aircraft aloft for the past 20 years. And so, there you have some of the major accomplishments for the past year. Just a reminder, we won’t be publishing a paper for the next two weeks, but will continue to post stories and keep you up-to-date with JB Charleston events via our website, www.charleston.af.mil and through our Facebook page. All of us here at the Joint Base Charleston Public Affairs office wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful, prosperous, healthy and happy New Year!

Certified Military Relocation Professionals

The first of its kind From the Senior Enlisted Advisor to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs

WASHINGTON – Marine Corps Sgt. Maj. Bryan Battaglia, the Senior Enlisted Advisor to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, will host a book release ceremony Dec. 17 at 10 a.m. in the Pentagon Auditorium. The Keynote speaker is Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, the 18th Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The book titled, "The Noncommissioned Officer and Petty Officer: Backbone of the Armed Forces" it's a first of its kind and is a comprehensive explanation of the enlisted leader across the United States Armed Forces. Written by a team of Active, Reserve and retired senior enlisted leaders from all service branches, the book defines and describes how NCOs/POs fit into an organization, centers them in the Profession of Arms, exposes their international engagement, and explains their dual roles of complementing the officer and enabling the force. As Dempsey writes in his foreword to the book, "We know noncommis-

sioned officers and petty officers to have exceptional competence, professional character, and soldierly grit - they are exemplars of our Profession of Arms." Aspirational and fulfilling, this book helps prepare young men and women who strive to become NCOs/POs, re-inspires serving enlisted leaders and stimulates reflection by those who have retired from or left active service. It also gives those who have never worn the uniform a better understanding of who these exceptional men and women are, and why they are properly known as the "backbone of the Armed Forces." As part of the ceremony, the first book will be autographed then delivered to the Library of Congress where it will reside for historical preservation. Electronic copies of thebook will be available through the National Defense University Press at www.ndu.edu/press/nco.html, the Joint Electronic Library at www.dtic.mil/doctrine/nco.htm, and JDEIS at http:// jdeis.js.smil.mil/jdeis/index.jsp?pindex=97, or through use of scanning a QR code.

What is Operation Warm Heart, Angel Tree? By Master Sgt. Tony Crerar 628th Force Support Squadron first sergeant

Up until a couple years ago, I would have asked the same question. Warm Heart? Angel Tree? What in the world are these? It was a blessing in disguise that I didn’t know about Operation Warm Heart, and a failure of my own, that I didn’t know what the Angel Tree was. Operation Warm Heart is not very well publicized. It is something that a select group has control of. That group is first sergeants. Every year, first sergeants conduct fundraisers and golf tournaments to raise money for Warm Heart. Where does that money? Right back into our military community; we are Airmen helping Airmen. When times have been tough, and a member cannot put food on the table, gas in their vehicle, diapers on their child or handle unexpected expenses, Operation Warm Heart steps

in. This is not to help out financial irresponsibility, like putting $5,000 worth of tires and rims on a $1,000 car. The first sergeants will provide aid to meet the necessities of a struggling family. Most people will never see or hear about Operation Warm Heart, and believe me, that’s a good thing. Angel tree is different. Every holiday season, the first sergeants place Christmas trees in the Exchange, Commissary and the Base Chapel. Gift tags hang on the branches of the trees with information about a child. Generous military members, retirees, civilians and spouses remove a tag, and then buy that child a gift and return the gift to the boxes located next to the Angel tree. First sergeants gather all the gifts and distribute the gifts to the families that may be in need of a little boost for the holidays. Without the help of our great military community, this may never be possible. We thank you for all your help.

Coast Guard cutter returns from final patrol

Story and photos by Senior Airman Dennis Sloan Joint Base Charleston Public Affairs

The United States Coast Guard national security cutter Gallatin (WHEC 721), and its 170-member crew, docked at a Charleston, S.C., pier Dec. 11, 2013, after its final patrol. Gallatin's crew members seized more than 1,000 kilos of cocaine with a street value of $34 million during the ship's final patrol. "It's an amazing feeling knowing that we are able to take that amount of illegal drugs off the street during any patrol, let alone the final for the Gallatin," said Cmdr. Steve Matadobra, Gallatin executive officer. "Crew members young and old on Gallatin worked through their Thanksgiving holiday away from families to complete the mission." One member of the crew, Seaman Julian Cubides, received a call from President Barack Obama on Thanksgiving. "He gave me a big thumbs-up and said I was doing a good job and to let the rest of the crew know they were all doing a good job too," said Cubides. "We talked a little about the Dolphins and the Heat, since I grew up in Miami and am a huge fan of both teams, but it was mostly about him thanking the crew for all their hard work." Three separate boats in the Caribbean were boarded by three to six-man teams from the Gallatin, where they first performed safety sweeps and then began the inspection process for illegal drugs.

"There are always tell-tale signs of ships possibly carrying drugs," said Petty Officer 1st Class Cliff Lewis, Gallatin law enforcement member. "If you see fresh paint, new construction or updates to a fishing boat or even smaller boats, it definitely raises a red flag in our minds." The Gallatin law enforcement crews boarded two fishing vessels and one go-fast boat where they found the cocaine. "The go-fast boats try to elude detection by traveling without navigation lights at night," said Lewis. "Fishing boats simply try and hide the drugs and often do a very poor job at it, which makes my job a lot easier." After the ship docked at the Charleston Pier, crew members reunited with family members and friends and embraced them for the first time in more than three months. The Gallatin was commissioned in 1968 and will be decommissioned next year before being transferred to the Nigerian Navy. The next generation of Coast Guard national security cutters includes the USCGC Hamilton, which will be based in Charleston. "While the new national security cutters are bigger and faster than the Gallatin, they can be operated by a crew of about 110," said Capt. Douglas Fears, the first commanding officer of the new Hamilton. The new cutters also have longer range and state-of-the-art surveillance equipment.

628th FSS wins big at AMC level

From Joint Base Charleston Public Affairs

The 628th Force Support Squadron recently won six awards at the Air Mobility Command level for 2013. The awards include Youth Program of the Year, Golf Program of the Year, Force Support Senior Noncommissioned officer of the Year, Airman and Family Readiness Program of the Year, Family Child Care Provider of the Year, and Library Program of the Year. "The squadron mission is so diversified and unique, to be recognized at the command level for the hard work we do every day is amazing," said Lt. Col. Jennifer Judd, 628th FSS commander. "I am very proud of the work completed by the entire team to meet the mission needs of both bases."

Youth Program of the Year The 628th FSS was recognized as the Youth Program of the Year in part because their advisors led various camps and programs, helping the lives of more than 50 youth members. Additionally, Kimberly King, a Goose Creek sophomore, was recognized as Military Youth of the Year for partnering with the local community and volunteering more than 2,300 hours to better the lives of individuals.

Golf Program of the Year Revenue in the golf program was increased in 2013, thanks to opportunities such as Joint Base Charleston Night Golf, low cost intramural golfing and hosting 53 Air Force and Navy golf tournaments. Additionally, the golf program instituted hybrid lawn mowers to reduce the cost of gas, and re-engineered the grill menu in the club, streamlining expenses. The program also welcomed new golfers with "Get Golf Ready" clinics and offered free games to children who were accompanied with an adult. Force Support Senior NCO of the Year Master Sgt. Candice Lemon was selected as

the Air Mobility Command Senior Noncommissioned Officer of the Year. Lemon stood out among her peers as she was heavily involved in the community, as well as the Air Force, volunteering to march in the local Veteran's Day Parade and being the point of contact for the Base Picnic, an event enjoyed by more than 2,700 Team Charleston members.

Airman and Family Readiness Center of the Year The JB Charleston Airman and Family Readiness Center hosts the largest Key Spouse program in AMC. More than 1,000 families were sponsored by 33 Key Spouses (Air Base) and Ombudsman (Weapons Station.) Additionally, the "Military Saves Campaign" garnished 905 pledges and was ranked number one by the Department of the Navy for total savings.

Family Child Care Provider of the Year As a family child care provider, Amanda Hullinger enacted a variety of programs to involve parents in what's going on in their child's life while under her care. This included hosting four group activities. She also created expansive daily reports, which included sending parents photos of their child engaged in an activity throughout the day.

Library of the Year A $442,000 renovation was completed at the Weapons Station library, the first since 1960, resulting in library patronage doubling. The library also partnered with 10 local base offices to expand the programs they offer to include adding a game night and photo class, which receive participation from 500 members of Joint Base Charleston. Many other achievements occurred between the JB Charleston - Air Base and Weapons Stations libraries, to promote reading and library usage making it a viable asset to servicemembers including streamlining the registration process so by signing up at one library, the patron has signed up at the other as well.

I just want to celebrate ... responsibly From 628th Air Base Wing Safety Office

It's party time! From Thanksgiving to New Year's, the holiday celebrations are happening everywhere. We all think of this time as one of the most joyful seasons, but it's also the time to pay greater attention to safety. In planning your festivities, consider and prepare for the hazards. As a party host, you want to take into account the food you're serving. Do any of your guests have allergies? Has the food been cooked and/or stored properly? Food poisoning or an allergic reaction can cause lost work days or cause someone to lose focus on-duty when feeling ill. For some additional tips from the National Safety Council: We're all aware that in planning a night on the town or going to a party, means having a plan to get home safely. But having a plan is equally important for the host of a party. Include non-

alcoholic beverages for the designated drivers; remind your guests to have a designated driver; a responsible host may mean not drinking in order to give a ride home to guests who are drinking; calling them a taxi; or offering your couch for the night. Another important hazard to consider, if you are the designated driver, it's not only just your drinking you should keep in mind. According to the Troy, Michigan police department, many holiday drinkers don't drink often, so they have a lower tolerance for alcohol. These people often underestimate their level of impairment and sometimes drive when they shouldn't. Some additional resources for this chapter: http://www.trafficsafetymarketing.gov/preHolidaySeason2012 http://www.drinkinganddriving.org/ (not specific to the holidays) http://www.madd.org/drunk-driving/safe-party/

able tools. This service is free to enrolled patients at Naval Health Clinic Charleston.

Carter at the Naval Health Clinic, 794-6895.

Face of Defense: Afghanistan air vet earns prestigious award

By Air Force Staff Sgt. Lealan Buehrer 182nd Airlift Wing

PEORIA, Ill. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A C-130 Hercules aircraft loadmaster with the 169th Airlift Squadron received the Staff Sgt. Henry "Red" Erwin Outstanding Enlisted Aircrew Member Airman of the Year Award during a Dec. 8 ceremony here. "It's pretty much a major surprise. I didn't believe it," Air Force Senior Airman Ryan Lane, an Afghanistan veteran, said upon receiving the award. Lane was presented the award by Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Steven Pyszka, the National Guard Bureau's career enlisted aviator career field manager. "For us, it is the most prestigious award that we can give out," Pyszka said. "And for Airman Lane, who is going to win that today, he had to compete against 3,000 other career enlisted aviators in the Air National Guard." The award nominees were evaluated by their outstanding accomplishments, leadership traits that impacted the mission, and self-improvement in areas such as education and training. Lane was selected for the award, in part, for his role in successfully completing 97 combat sorties that airdropped 48,384 pounds of supplies, delivered 153 tons of cargo and transported

1,690 passengers in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. He was also recognized as an airman who is a team player and a self-motivated, detail-oriented learner capable of handling mission-vital tasks. Pyszka said that accomplishment of the nominees' missions relates to adhering to the Air Force's core values. "You have to have that integrity because five other crewmembers on that airplane are counting on that person to do their job," he said. "If you're not performing your job at an excellent level, every time you go out there you're putting five other people in danger, and if you're carrying passengers you're putting that whole entire aircraft in danger, too." Protecting lives is what inspired the creation of the award, named after Army Air Corps Staff Sgt. Henry E. Erwin. Erwin was a B-29 Superfortress radio operator during World War II whose heroism saved his aircraft and fellow crewmembers during a mission on April 12, 1945. A smoke bomb prematurely ignited inside the aircraft during an attack on a Japanese chemical plant, filling the aircraft with smoke and burning phosphorous. Erwin, although blinded by the phosphorous, picked up the burning ordnance and threw it off the plane. Doing so allowed the pilot to pull up the aircraft merely 300 feet from the ground.

Erwin suffered burns to his face and body so severe that he wasn't expected to live. However, he did survive and was awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions. "What that exemplifies â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for what he did to actually get that award started â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to pass that on to our other enlisted aviators is a really huge benefit," Pyszka said. "It's something that we shouldn't take lightly and nobody does."
