Construction begins on new Vance tower By Airman 1st Class Frank Casciotta 71st Flying Training Wing Public Affairs

Dirt is starting to fly at the construction site of the $9.44 million air traffic control tower that is scheduled for completion late spring and will stand 112 feet tall, nearly twice the size of the current tower. “This tower will have some more bells and whistles than the old tower,” said Drew Bareiss, president of East Breeze, the company overseeing quality assurance on the construction. Some of the improvements included with the new tower are an elevator, better heating and air conditioning and a training simulator room on the ground floor. The simulator room also will serve as a tornado shelter, said Bareiss.

By Tech. Sgt. Jess Harvey Air Force Public Affairs Agency

WASHINGTON (AFNS) — The commander of the Air Force’s Air Education and Training Command spoke to members of the media here June 28 about the ongoing investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct by military training instructors (MTIs) at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas. “In the fall of 2011 we discovered, to our great disappointment, that we had a number of MTIs who were alleged to have engaged in sexual misconduct with trainees,” said Gen. Edward Rice, Jr. “We are all committed to doing everything possible to investigate those allegations, to take care of the victims, to hold the perpetrators accountable and to fix any institutional problem that may have facilitated this completely unacceptable behavior.” In total, 12 MTIs have been accused of engaging in the misconduct, nine of which were from the 331st Training Squadron at Lackland. The squadron commander was relieved, and the MTIs were moved to other responsibilities within the squadron pending the results of the investigation. Rice said the first allegation was raised by a victim in June 2011, and then, in November 2011, a group of MTIs came forward with information they overheard from other instructors. “The vast majority of our 500 military training instructors are perform-

ing magnificently in a tremendously demanding environment,” said Rice. “No one is more angry and disappointed than they are that a relatively small number of their cadre has cast a shadow over the entire program.” That’s why, he said, the instructors came forward. “Some of this alleged misconduct occurred while the trainees were in basic military training and some of this alleged misconduct occurred after the trainees graduated from BMT but were still in what we call the technical-training environment,” said Rice. But the general pointed out that, no matter where or when it happened, the

Air Force has a zero-tolerance policy for this type of behavior and AETC has policies in place to deter it. “Regardless of whether the activity occurred in basic military training or in the technical training environment,” said Rice, “personal relationships of any kind between trainees and instructors are strictly prohibited by our regulations and our instructions.” As soon as AETC leaders received the first allegation, they began an aggressive investigation and further tightened the measures already in place to deter such misconduct. One such measure includes a briefing given to all recruits within the first 72 hours of their arrival, according to Rice. The training group commander, chaplain, judge advocate, and sexual assault response coordinator talk to recruits about their rights and responsibilities to report misconduct. Another measure includes comment boxes located all throughout the

TRUTH Continued from Page 1 training areas where recruits can use comment sheets to anonymously report incidents. “The training group commander reads every urgent sheet within 24 hours,” said Rice. “And any allegation of sexual misconduct results in immediate action.” That includes the instructor being removed from his or her flight immediately and a no-contact order being issued, according to Rice. In addition, the MTI– hat is removed from that instructor pending investigation. He said the command also is looking closely at the instructor and trainee training process, the instructor selection process, and hiring more instructors among other things to combat this in the future, according to Rice. “These actions are designed to help us address the root causes of the issue,” said Rice. Additionally, Rice directed an outside look by a major general not assigned within AETC to review the command’s policies and practices. “This external review will examine all the actions we have taken thus far to address this issue and provide me with feedback on what more we can do to prevent misconduct in our training environment and to strengthen our entire training enterprise,” said Rice. “At the end of the day, the best line of defense is for the training instructors in fact to police themselves and that’s what happened in this case.” said Rice. But, the general stressed, “It’s important that we not pre-judge any of these cases, in any way. Remember that each person we are investigating is innocent until proven guilty.”


Sexual assault is a crime By Dianne Moffett Air Education and Training Command public affairs

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas — Sexual assault is a crime that degrades values, disrupts readiness, undermines goodwill and forever changes the lives of victims and their families. The Defense Department defines sexual assault as intentional sexual contact, characterized by the use of force, physical threat or abuse of authority or when the victim does not or cannot consent. Under the definition, sexual assault includes rape, non consensual sodomy (oral or anal sex), or indecent assault (unwanted, inappropriate sexual contact or fondling). Air Force leaders stress every airman has the moral obligation

and professional duty to intervene appropriately to prevent and eliminate sexual assault from the Air Force. “If you have experienced an assault or know someone who needs help your base Sexual Assault Response coordinator or victim advocate is there to assist and offer support,” said Christine Burnett, Air Education and Training Command SARC. SARC’s are considered the center of gravity when it comes to ensuring victims of sexual assault receive appropriate and responsive care. “They serve as the single point of contact to coordinate sexual assault victim care,” Burnett said. “If a victim advocate is requested, the advocate assists the member in making informed decisions as they progress through resolution and healing.” Under the Defense Department’s confidentiality policy, military members and depen-

support through a host of Air Force programs available to them. Some of the programs include health care, mental health care, legal, counseling, chaplain services and the victim witness assistance program. For the DoD community, provides service members and civilians 24-hour-aday, seven-day-a-week, assistance. The telephone help line is available at (877) 995-5247. The phone number is the same via the Defense Switched Network, or DSN. “The first step for any victim of sexual assault is to find safety,” Burnett said. “Go to a safe location, away from the perpetrator and seek medical attention as soon as possible.” Contact Vance Air Force Base’s Sexual Assault Recovery Coordinator at 213-5598 during normal working hours, and 24 hours a day at 541-7095.

dents who have access to military treatment facilities, have two reporting options — restricted reporting and unrestricted reporting, Burnett said. Military retirees and civilian victims currently may use only unrestricted reporting. “With restricted reporting, the incident is not reported to the commander or investigators. This allows the victim to focus on getting medical, spiritual and psychological attention without initiating an investigation,” Burnett said. There are some exceptions and limitations to restricted reporting. For example, when the victim reports the crime to someone in their chain of command, a restricted report is no longer an option. Many resources are available to victims of sexual assault and provide live, confidential support. The base SARC can assist service members and civilians in need of

Nellie Martin, an administrative contracting officer, was selected as the Vance Air Force Base Warrior of the Week for her involvement with Vance Plan 202. Vance Plan 202 was designed to mitigate the impact on the base, and to keep Vance airmen neutral on the subject, had there been a labor dispute during recent contract negotiations between the base contractor and the labor union representing its workers. “Vance Plan 202 is like ‘Plan 9 From Outer Space’ since it’s prone to mistakes and assumptions, and the consequences of a bad execution could be significant,” said Thomas Patton, the chief of the installation contracting office. “Nellie developed briefings to explain the plan to wing leadership and developed training while still maintaining her normal duties,” said Patton. Martin was surprised when she found out she was named Warrior of the Week. “I couldn’t believe it,” said Martin, an Elgin native. “I was just doing my job.” As one of only two contracting officers on base, Martin oversees the compliance with the Computer Sciences Corporation Applied Technologies contract, which employs more than 950 contractors on base. “It’s my job to make sure the government receives what we are paying for,” said Martin. She has been working at Vance 19 years and is a 35-year civil service veteran. “I enjoy my job and working with peo-

Tenets of effective leadership By Lt. Col. Christopher Huisman 315th Training Squadron Commander

GOODFELLOW AIR FORCE BASE, Texas — A friend of mine and fellow squadron commander recently recommended that I watch a presentation that our incoming Chief of Staff, Gen. Mark Welsh, gave to Squadron Officers School several years ago. My friend had warned me that it was not a short video, almost 90 minutes, but that it would be well worth the time. I’ll be honest, when I sat down to watch I was skeptical and thought that I would watch five, maybe 10 minutes at most. Boy was I wrong. I watched all 82 minutes in one sitting. It is a truly moving presentation, filled with lessons that any leader could apply. Below are some of the lessons that stuck with me.

Trust your gut

There aren’t any easy answers in some situations. Sometimes there is no book to reference. If something feels like it is the right thing to do, then it probably is. You were put in a position of leadership

because your bosses trusted you. If something doesn’t feel right, no matter how many people tell you you should be doing something; if it doesn’t feel right ... trust your gut.

They do Everyone is trying hard ... this because they care. They might look at never forget that strategic vision, mission statements, faciliFrustration is the enemy. Leaders deleties or reorganization. However, in many

cases these “fingerprints” only last until the next leader arrives. The only fingerprints that last are the ones you leave on your people. Leaders need to spend their time and energy on the latter rather than the former. Make sure the fingerprints you leave are good.

For every person willing to lead, there are hundreds more willing to critique them When you step out as the lead on an issue in an organization, you are making yourself a target. Others might take the opportunity to take shots and critique. Deal with it. Most that take shots will want to be doing what you are, they just don’t have the nerve to.

You won’t always be right

No matter how talented, motivated, or intelligent you are, a leader is never always right and will make mistakes. When you’re wrong, tell everyone that you’re wrong, learn from it and move on.


Why I’m volunteering for mission in Afghanistan By Maj. Tyrell Mayfield AFPAK Hands Language Student

I am going to Afghanistan as an embedded advisor. I am an AFPAK (Afghanistan, Pakistan) Hand. I am a volunteer and that does not make me crazy. I have volunteered for all manners of things in my life. I volunteered for the Army, to jump out of planes, for Ranger School. I volunteered to go to college, to join the Air Force, to earn a commission. Over the course of the last 19 years I also have done a lot of things I was told to do. Out of spite sometimes, I did things which I was strongly advised against. “Don’t do that, you’ll ruin any career you might have in front of you,” I was told by a colonel one time. But I wanted to. I felt like I needed to. So, I volunteered to be a Combat Aviation Adviser with the 6th Special Operations Squadron and that’s when things changed. I spent six months learning passable Arabic, then almost another year of training

and education before I completed my “supervised deployment” and was a full-up round. The first trip was a real eye-opener for me. I had worked with foreign forces before and even had some integrated into units I had deployed with, but it was always on U.S. installations and on U.S. terms. On my first deployment as an adviser I lived with my counterparts at a remote airfield. I stayed in their billets (quarters), ate their food, walked their ground, on their terms. I spoke Arabic as much as I could, though what they really wanted was to practice their English on me. We spent weeks trying to improve their air base defense knowledge, refining procedures and improving the integration of their forces. I did my best to teach them everything I could. What ended up happening was something I didn’t really expect. I learned more in that month than I thought was possible. My passable Arabic was not as impressive of an achievement as I had thought it was. I learned this sitting at dinner and try-

ing to follow a conversation that flipped through Arabic, French, Berber, Spanish and English with as much effort as it took me to pour another glass of scalding hot tea. I tried to ride some crazy Arabian horse and was unceremoniously and painfully tossed in the dirt to much laughter. I stubbed my ego badly but I earned some respect from my counterparts and in a way, some respect for my country too. It wasn’t a perfect trip. It was maddening at times, frustrating always and achieving what you might call “progress” was almost impossible to demonstrate, but it was there. The contact is what mattered. The relationship, the honesty, and the opportunity to explain a few things about America while learning a lot about the country I was working in was the intangible reward. My following missions as a Combat Aviation Advisor were similar but many were conducted under more challenging conditions. In a lot of places I ended up, my Modern Standard Arabic was almost useless. It was like learning English in London and

then being assigned someplace on the bayous of Louisiana. English is English — until it isn’t. The war in Afghanistan carried on and I ended up in places where Arabic wasn’t very useful. A lot of the work done by advisers happens on the fringes of conflict. It’s like fighting a grass fire on the edge of a burning forest. If you pull it off you can stem the advancing fire. If not, you’re likely to get caught up in a rapidly growing conflagration. Advising is often about containing and combating a problem by, with, and through those countries you’ve partnered with. On one trip we worked with a partner nation for the better part of a year. I was exposed to an entirely different way of thinking, my own ideas were challenged and small tasks proved hugely important. Culture in many of these countries is deep and though I did my best; I was barely able to tread water early on. Shortly after this deployment was over, the country we

LEADERSHIP Continued from Page 4 Your bosses aren’t keeping score and don’t keep score on your people. Let your people make mistakes and learn from them.

Some days your best isn’t good enough

This shouldn’t be a surprise. When it isn’t, your people are going to carry you. And the next day when their best enough isn’t good enough for them, you are going to carry them. This is the way that a team works.

Being an Air Force officer, NCO or airman means something ... act like it Everyone who wears the uniform should know it and shouldn’t whine about it when they get punished for doing something stupid. Make sure you say this to the people you lead

and then hold them to it. The profession of arms is important. You are important and what you bring to your profession is important, but it brings responsibilities with it: legal, moral, and ethical. All of these responsibilities matter and you will not recover from a mistake that falls into one of these categories, because they are not mistakes, they are bigger than that. Leaders of every grade and position could pull something from General Welsh’s presentation, not just squadron commanders. I would highly recommend his presentation to anyone that wants to be inspired to be a better leader. Sit down and give it a view, just don’t be surprised if you wind up watching all 82 minutes.

VOLUNTEERING Continued from Page 4 left was devastated by a natural disaster. I watched on TV from the comfort of my living room as the very units we were embedded with the month before saved countless lives. They were making a difference and I ached because I wasn’t able to help. It was best that I wasn’t there. When we went back a few months later to the same unit I reaped a dividend of immeasurable value. America did too, but nobody ever saw it or wrote about it. You had to be there to see it and even then you couldn’t have plotted it on a graph or built a chart out of the data. You could just feel it. Their confidence was buoyed by success, their hard work had paid off and they were recognized anew for their professionalism and heroism by their government and the citizens they served. Could more have been done if we had been embedded at the time of the disaster? Maybe, but our presence would have detracted from their success. It was best they did it on their own. We hadn’t trained them in search and rescue, or humanitarian relief but they were able to take the skill sets we had worked on for so many months and adapt them to their new environment. They did it themselves and it made all the difference. A number of conventional assignments followed. I was an operations officer, a wing staff guy, I commanded a squadron in garrison and deployed but none of it was as personally satisfying as the intangible reward I earned as an adviser and that’s why I am going back. I was advised against volunteering for AFPAK Hands by virtually every senior officer and peer that I talked to about it. “You’ll be

out of the career field too long,” “nobody will want you when you come back” or “it won’t help you get promoted” were the common refrains. It’s probably all true and I don’t care. I’m now learning Dari and preparing for my deployment. My Arabic background has proven very helpful and I’ve managed to be a better student of language the second time around. I think part of it is that I know how important it’s going to be. The memory of being immensely frustrated and at times scared by not being able to follow a conversation at a few very tense moments in the past has reinforced my desire to learn. It’s entirely possible that I’ll not speak much of it in my official capacity, but language provides insight into culture, into how people think and what is important in their lives. I could end up in a ministry, embedded at the operational level with the ANSF (Afghan National Security Force), or tasked to conduct village stability operations. Regardless of where I end up, nothing that I am going to do will likely change the outcome of this decade-long conflict. But that doesn’t mean that what I do won’t matter. The outcome of this war is for the most part, already decided. The Taliban — though still present — will not return to power and al Come join us for a feel of home-away from home. Reaching Out

Qaeda has been strategically crippled and denied the freedom of movement and sanctuary that Afghanistan once provided. What remains to be seen is what Afghanistan will look like in 10 years, or 20. Can a return to civil war be averted? Can Afghanistan expand the writ of the state far enough to provide an acceptable level of security for its citizens and defend its sovereignty should it be challenged? Can the gains of the last decade — modest as they may be — hold out in a society struggling after three decades of constant conflict? These are the questions I am thinking about. These are the next challenges Afghanistan will face. Advisory work happens on the periphery. It’s often unnoticed, unknown and certainly under-appreciated. Its focus is on the future, on helping someone else win the next war so we don’t have to, or better yet, preventing it from happening altogether. It is in this absence of a phenomenon that you can see the success of an adviser. When something doesn’t happen where the terrible was possible an advisor has likely made a difference. If 10 years from now Afghanistan is not front page news, I will have done my job as an AFPAK Hand and the Afghans will be doing theirs.

The 25th Flying Training Squadron fed 105 people during the June Singles’ International Gourmet Meal Opportunity June 25 in the Community Chapel Activity Center at Vance Air Force Base. SIGMO provides a free meal every month for single airmen and families with deployed spouses. This month, 14 volunteers from the 25th FTS hosted the meal. The meal theme, “Old family favorites,” featured a menu of meatloaf, chickenfried steak, green beans, macaroni and cheese, salad, cornbread and rolls, a vegetarian dish and various deserts.

Airman saves man’s life — twice KUNSAN AIR BASE, South Korea (AFNS) — When Airman 1st Class Patrick Shemwell walked outside after eating dinner near Kunsan Air Base on June 24, he saw a young Korean man lying on the ground and gasping for air. Shemwell shoved his way through the screaming bystanders and checked the man’s pulse, but the man had stopped breathing. “When I initially saw him, I didn’t know if he had had one too many drinks that night or if he was just being dramatic,” said Shemwell, an Owensboro, Ky., native assigned to the 8th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron here. “Nobody else was taking action, so I took charge.” Shemwell immediately began performing CPR. When the Korean man started breathing again after four or five compressions, Shemwell ran inside a store to make sure the police had been called. While he was inside, the situation turned sour again, so another airman took action.

“As I was watching, he stopped breathing so I dropped to his left side and began CPR,” said Tech. Sgt. Percival Cabase, who also works at the 8th AMXS. Unfortunately, it wasn’t working. Shemwell said he ran back out and took over where Cabase left off, resuscitating the victim for a second time. A minute later, a Korean ambulance came and transported the man to a hospital. “It all happened so quickly, it was a blur,” said Shemwell. “It was an adrenaline rush. Your whole focus and the only thing you think about is, ‘Now I have to save somebody’s life.’ “I never imagined I would have to use CPR or be in that situation,” he added. To him, the scene unfolded in what seemed like mere moments and was over just as quickly. Although he kept a humble attitude and only told his immediate supervisor about the incident the next day at work, word soon got around.

aircraft — could no longer control the elevator, and his student could no longer control the ailerons. In order to safely land the aircraft, it would take two people operating different flight controls. Baumann remained calm and was able to direct the student pilot verbally in controlling the elevator, while he manipulated the ailerons and rudders, resulting in a safe recovery and uneventful landing. Schwartz lauded Baumann as an aviation professional whose cool demeanor and level-headed thinking resolved a potentially fatal situation, saving himself and the student pilot with whom he was flying.

“Flying is fun when it is all going routinely, but there are times in our business when one needs to apply skill and cunning, whether it be in combat or in a safety-related situation like you experienced,” Schwartz said to Baumann. Baumann gave credit to all those who helped him that day, including his student, his wingman, the maintainers and other airmen on the ground, and his unit’s leadership. “We formed a team, and the communication and ideas that were provided to (the student pilot) and me were outstanding,” Baumann said. “We were able to save the airplane as a team, because I was given the gift of great, professional individuals around me.” The trophy is presented each year by the Air Force Chief of Staff in the name of 1st Lt. Koren Kolligian Jr., an Air Force pilot declared missing in the line of duty when his T-33 Shooting Star aircraft disappeared off the coast of California in 1955. The award was established in 1958 and recognizes outstanding airmanship by an aircrew member. The crew member must show extraordinary skill, alertness, ingenuity, or proficiency in averting or minimizing the seriousness of a flight mishap. Baumann, the 54th recipient of the trophy, said he is extremely humbled to receive such an honor and was blown away when he found out Schwartz and the Kolligian family would be at the ceremony. As a result, he invited his whole family. “One of the reasons we are as effective an Air Force as we are is simply that our aviators are able to recognize a condition, use their training and skill to deal with it and, most importantly, bring the aircrew home,” Schwartz said. “That is certainly what occurred in this case.”

Farmers Market tops list of July promotions By Sallie Cauthers

DeCA marketing and mass communications specialist

FORT LEE, Va. — Military customers searching for hot deals in July such as Farmers Markets only have to venture as far as their local commissary for discounts, giveaways and other promotions, said the Defense Commissary Agency’s director of sales. “Your commissaries have planned a few outdoor activities this summer to include the ever-popular Farmers Markets occurring throughout the month of July as well as pet promotions and festivals continuing every weekend at select locations,” said Chris Burns, the agency’s sales director. “Whether they’re getting ready to grill or just looking for greater savings, we want our customers to know their commissary benefit is here for them.” Throughout July, DeCA’s industry partners — vendors, suppliers and brokers — are collaborating with commissaries to offer discounts beyond everyday savings.

AF members gain PLAYpass use, discount opportunities By Eric Grill

Air Force Personnel, Services and Manpower Public Affairs

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) — As summer approaches, eligible airmen and their families have the opportunity to use the PLAYpass Get Out and PLAY program to save hundreds of dollars with discounts in recreational and life skills classes. PLAYpass cards, valued at more than $500, allow single airmen returning from deployments, families of deployed airmen and families of airmen at dependent-restricted assignments to participate in Air Force Services activities such as trips, sports and child care at either a reduced cost or free of charge. Since the Air Force program launched in 2011 and later

expanded to include dependent-restricted assignments, more than 37,000 eligible members have participated in PLAYpass, said Linda Weston, an Air Force Services Agency marketing specialist. The top activities used with the discount cards include youth programs, swimming pools, outdoor recreation, golf, bowling,

and information, tickets and travel offices, she said. The PLAYpass program runs through Dec. 31. For more information about the PLAYpass program, program eligibility or how to obtain a PLAYpass card, visit or an installation force support squadron. 242-1320

Exchange celebrating ‘Christmas in July’ The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is giving shoppers the opportunity to beat the December rush while saving big on some 300 toys with its “Christmas in July” toy sale. Through July 14, everything from Leapsters to Legos to Barbies and

more will be discounted anywhere from 25-50 percent off. Additionally, shoppers using their MILITARY STAR card will receive a 10 percent discount on any toy purchase of $100 or more. “These are some ‘toy-riffic’ prices

on all the toys kids love,” said the Exchange’s Chief of Staff Col. Thomas Ockenfels. “Whether it’s for an upcoming birthday or a jump start on Christmas shopping, this is one sale that parents won’t want to miss.”
