KY Soldier residents receive income tax break by Nondice Powell Courier staff
A change to Kentucky law will soon have a huge impact on active duty service members who call Kentucky home. House Bill 3 passed the Kentucky Senate and House June 24 and was signed into law by Governor Steve Beshear on Friday. A portion of the bill makes active duty service members, who claim Kentucky on their taxes, exempt from state income tax beginning Jan. 1. “It’s been one of my top priorities since I was elected three years ago,” said Rep. John Tilley,
I’d be more apt to become a Kentucky resident now. It’s nice to see them doing something for us for serving. Sgt. Jeremy Morrison, 101st Airborne Division Band
Kentucky State House. “I think it’s the right things to do.” Carter Hendricks, Senior Vice President of Community and Military Affairs Christian County Chamber of Commerce, com-
pared the tax exemption to a 6 percent pay raise since it is more money Soldiers and their families will see in their own pockets. “The military sacrifices for us, so we should sacrifice for
them,” said Hendricks. “It took a team effort and a state-wide approach.” Hendricks was born at the old Fort Campbell hospital while his dad served as a command sergeant major on post. “I grew up with the military,” said Hendricks. “I love it and want to support it.” Senator Joey Pendleton was another legislator helping to push the idea of the active duty military tax exemption. He has sponsored legislation several times in the Senate since 2005 hoping for the exemption. As a former National Guardsmen, he understands many of the sacri-
fices service members make and felt the legislation was important. “It’s very special now with the times we live in,” said Pendleton. “I’m glad it finally passed. We want to thank [service members] for what they do. We hope it will certainly help them and make them want to live on the Kentucky side.” Most service members in the Kentucky area are not aware yet of the benefit House Bill 3 specifically has for them. “It’s pretty nice,” said Sgt. Jeremy Morrison, 101st Airborne Division Band. “We’re not residents of Kentucky; we’re
residents of Pennsylvania. I’d be more apt to become a Kentucky resident now. It’s nice to see them doing something for us for serving.” Tilley, Hendricks and Pendleton all explained how the tax exemption especially gives service members at Fort Campbell an added incentive to “turn left” when they leave the installation each day. Kentucky already offers no sales tax on food, prescriptions and automobile sales. They explained the area has a low cost of living and a high quality of life. They feel the tax exemption will give Soldiers just one more reason to call Kentucky home.
Beware of firework Freedom Fest ‘09 hazards, dangers by Colleen Machado Courier staff
Independence Day is one holiday celebrated with low explosive pyrotechnics splashing the evening sky. You probably know them as fireworks. It is no surprise that June – July 4 is National Firework Safety month. While these dazzling displays of light are entertaining, they also come with a lot of danger. “Due to their explosive and heat related nature, fireworks must be handled with extreme caution,” Tracey Russell, a safety specialist at the U.S. Army Combat Readiness/ Safety Center, said. “Those who choose to handle fireworks must always be mindful not only of themselves and how they are handling the fireworks but also where they are handling them, who else is around and what the weather conditions are.” The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission states there are about 9,000 to 10,000 people hospitalized in
emergency rooms each year for firework related injuries. The count does not include injuries that go without being reported. According to the USACR/ Safety Center, one out of every three people injured were children under the age of 15. Three times as many males were injured as females when handling fireworks. The Center also reported that four years ago a Soldier lost his eye after a firework ignited prematurely and hit him in the face. Only five out of 50 states allow consumers to purchase fireworks for personal use, which includes Kentucky and Tennessee. Distributors often sell fireworks near state borders where laws prohibiting sales on either side of the border may differ. Before you purchase anything make sure you are following your state laws. According to Fort Campbell Regulation 420-24, paragraph 14-16, fireworks are prohibited on post. see Safety, Page 3A

Insurgents shift focus to attacking civilians more than coalition troops Navy Lt. David Bennet, a physicians assistant with the Paktika Provincial Reconstruction Team, carries a civilian hit by an improvised explosive device into the 67th Forward Surgical Team facility on Forward Operating Base Sharana in the Paktika Province of eastern Afghanistan for treatment following an attack June 7.
by Pfc. Andrya Hill 4th BCT, 25th Infantry Division
FORWARD OPERATING BASE SALERNO, Afghanistan – The rate of civilians killed by improvised explosive devices in eastern Afghanistan has risen 117 percent in the last year. Insurgents have shifted their primary focus from Coalition Forces, to target the local residents. While they continue to fight CF, effective IED strikes resulting in CF deaths have decreased by 70 percent, and the insurgents have begun to consistently target Afghan citizens. Army Col. Michael Howard, commander of the 4th Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division, controls the battle space comprised of the Paktika, Paktya, and Khost Provinces. He explained that anyone who possesses the courage to speak out against the Taliban becomes a target. Contractors who work with the CF, Afghan Government officials, policemen, the Afghanistan Army, moderate mullahs, elders and innocent civilians

who support their government, are all receiving threats and becoming targets, he said. According to Howard, the insurgents use brutal tactics by placing command wire IEDs to attempt to maim or kill specifically selected residents, but through the use of pressure plate
IEDs, their tactics prove reckless and ruthless, devastating the first innocent person to drive down the road. “They are targeting civilians. IEDs that go off with a command wire are not an accident. Someone pulled a trigger,” said Howard. “They also are using force in an indiscriminate and
irresponsible way. When they put a pressure plate IED in the road, when there is ten times more civilian traffic than military traffic, it puts all civilians at risk. This happens all the time.” Dr. Naimatullah Haqmal, a Khost City resident who works at the Salerno Hospital, said that the increase in civilian attacks has been predominate to the point he is relocating his family to a safer area in Afghanistan, just as many residents are now doing. “The enemy targets civilian people now,” Haqmal said. “They kill all those people who have knowledge, who are educated. They want to hold the people in the dark. They think if the people have knowledge, they will terminate the fighting. Anyone that has sympathy with the government, they will kill.” The rise in civilian attacks is alarming, but more detrimental is the effect the attacks have on their livelihood. “When civilians here get injured it is much more devastating. Things that are not fatal in the U.S. are fatal here. A local national with a 50 percent body
surface burn is fatal, where in the U.S. they have an 80-plus percent survival rate. Even if they survive here, they become a burden to their family and the majority do not return to functional lives,” said Air Force Col. (Dr.) Scott Russi, the Trauma Chief and lead general surgeon at the Salerno Hospital. Nazifullah Karimi, from Khost province, explained the people of Afghanistan are angry, that it is not a majority, or a high percentage, but every Afghan has been affected. At least one member of each extended family has been targeted, threatened or intimidated by the insurgents. “They don’t march in the streets, but that doesn’t mean that they are not furious. There is such intimidation from the Taliban that they cannot vocalize how disgusted they are. The Afghans that we work with, that we become friends with, tell us there is outrage,” concurred Howard. see Attacks, Page 3A

Soldiers from 227th General Supply Company learn to turn their uniform pants into flotation devices during drownproofing training last week at Baldanado Pool. The hour-long session was designed to teach aquatic survival skills to Soldiers who don’t normally perform missions in the water.

A cool plunge last week trained the 227th General Supply Company to float by the seat of their pants. While treading in the deep end of Baldanado Pool, dozens of male and female Soldiers slid out of their combat uniform bottoms, tied the legs together and stuck their heads through the crotch. Drownproofing class is a standard Army preparation for water disaster scenarios such as a plane crash in the ocean or a truck rollover into the river. To survive, the Soldier might have to contend with the weight of their gear and being isolated from help. Sgt. Michael Craft, who has been through the hour-long class numerous times, said that most of the unit was excited about the training when they first learned of it. The Olympic-size swimming pool looked awfully inviting during the recent heat wave. But Craft said the class offered much more than relief. “After today, I’m sure [227th Soldiers] realize this was valuable training for them in the event they do end up in the water,” Craft said. Swimming instructor Chrissy Reinert said one of the essential lessons of drownproofing class is to use a uniform as a flotation device. Reinert herself donned a combat uniform
Junior shooters get tips from Olympic rifle team members at summer camp by Michael Molinaro U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit
FORT BENNING, Ga. – For some kids, a chance to hang out with and pick the brain of a U.S. Olympian or Soldier would be the highlight of the summer. Here, 35 youngsters earned the opportunity to do both at the same time. The U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit’s International Rifle team conducted a five-day shooting camp, June 22-26, for some of the top upand-comers in the sport from all over the country. “It’s more of an advanced camp,” said Sgt. George Norton, who was the camp’s director. “There are a lot of camps out there for the basic level and teaching the fundamentals, but this camp is bringing them to that next step.” The camp was born from the numerous requests for AMU Soldiers to teach shooters from all over the country every summer, said Maj. Michael Anti, a former U.S. Olympian. With the pace of the shooting schedule and other responsibilities, the team wouldn’t have time to properly train if it was running all over the country. “We decided to do one clinic a year and open it up to the nation’s best junior shooters so we can get a big group at one time,” said Anti. Entry is limited to 35 kids, who all had to earn their way into the camp, Norton said. They had to meet certain criteria to attend the camp, including gaining a qualifying rank through
...this camp is bringing them to that next step. Sgt. George Norton, camp director
USA Shooting. “We actually had to turn away a bunch of kids,” Norton remarked. “We didn’t want to, but we wanted to have that higher ratio.” The ratio of one coach to four shooters is one of the reasons the camp is so successful and sought after by shooters and their parents. The time devoted to each shooter by a coach is something the AMU strives for and feels most proud of. “The low coach-to-shooter ratio is great,” said Kelly Edwards, who brought his 12-year-old daughter Kaitlynn to the camp from Victoria, Texas. “They really get to ask some good questions, more advanced stuff. Besides all of the shooting questions, the coaches were telling them how to pack for a match and how to handle a finals match, things like that.” The camp starts out with a diagnostic shooting event on Monday morning, giving the coaches a starting point from where to work. From there, classroom work begins in the afternoon, preparing the shooters for the next morning’s range ses-
sion. They are taught the intricacies of the prone, standing, and kneeling positions, along with an array of marksmanship techniques. It culminates Friday with a finals event, copied straight from the way an Olympic-level event would run. “The match at the end of the week is my favorite part of camp,” said Kelsey Hansen, 16, from Minot, N.D., who was making her second visit to the camp. “It allows me to see my improvements.” The kids bombard the coaches with all kinds of questions, such as “What is an accurate rifle?” “What do I watch for in the wind?” or “What do you say when you get nervous to calm down?” “The overall goal is for them to realize that they can shoot better,” Norton said. A junior who attended three previous camps is on his way to West Point this fall and will be a member of their shooting team. “It’s good to let them know that we are Soldiers first, but this is our job,” said Norton. “You can come in and be a mechanic, an infantryman, or whatever you want, and you can still do this.” The AMU trains thousands of Soldiers each year in marksmanship techniques through train-the-trainer clinics, and passing this knowledge on to possible future Soldiers, or Olympic shooters, is what it’s all about. “I just like being around the kids,” said Parker, a three-time Olympian. “Some of the things we take for granted the kids don’t have the knowledge to know about yet.”
to demonstrate several techniques. One method required the Soldier to cross his ankles, zip the jacket all the way up and close the Velcro collar. Once in the water, air gets trapped in the uniforms shoulder area and creates a puffy buoyancy that floats the Soldiers on the surface. The other proven technique uses only the pants. Worn around the neck, the pants trap air in the seat when forced quickly underwater. Pvt. Kevin Coleman nearly lost his inflatable trousers when he stepped off a onemeter diving board and hit the water. “I just [barely] grabbed it,” Coleman said. Coleman rested his head on the recaptured pants like on a pillow and kicked his way to the pool side. The class was the first time Coleman realized that his uniform could double as a flotation device. The exercise drives home an important lesson said Coleman’s NCO Sgt. Matthew Mayle. “Trust your equipment,” Mayle said. “It’s there for a reason. Know how to use it so if you get into a situation where you need it, it’s there for you.” Though the main job of the 227th is to run a warehouse, it is conceivable that they would have to use their drownproofing training during deployment.
The unit could go down over water in a C-17 airlifter or a convoy accident could send Soldiers tumbling into the fast current of a river. The 227th, which supports the efforts of water purification units, also places them at risk of drowning. The Soldiers with the most to gain from the training were the nonswimmers. Spc. Brittany Hollie and a number of other Soldiers did all their drownproofing exercises on the shallow end of the pool. Even getting in the water was intimidating for Hollie. “I walked to the edge and stepped back over and over,” Hollie said. “I had to do it at least six times to mentally prepare myself. Finally, I just kind of fell in.” Hollie said she tried to absorb all the instructor’s coaching. These techniques could save her life even without having to swim a stroke. Hollie and her fellow Soldiers also practiced maneuvering with real lifevests on. After jumping in the deep end, they had to travel the entire length of the pool. As a final exercise, the entire group locked arms in a giant circle. Then, they all kicked in unison. The ring of splashing is a technique for getting the attention of searching aircraft and water vessels. If your unit would like to schedule a drownproofing class, contact Reinert at (270) 798-5207.

Public Enemies No one could stop John Dillinger and his gang. No jail could hold him. His charm and audacious jailbreaks endeared him to almost everyone – from his girlfriend Billie Frechette to an American public who had no sympathy for the banks that had plunged the country into the Depression. But while the adventures of Dillinger’ gang – later including Baby Face Nelson and Alvin Karpis – thrilled many, J. Edgar Hoover made Dillinger America’s first Public Enemy Number One and sent in Melvin Purvis, the dashing “Clark Gable of the FBI.” However, Dillinger and his gang outwitted and outgunned Purvis’ men. Only after importing a crew of Western ex-lawmen and orchestrating epic betrayals were Purvis, the FBI and their gunfighters able to close in on Dillinger. Rated R.
Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian July 10 and 11, 7 p.m. (Ben Stiller, Amy Adams) Night guard Larry now a successful entrepreneur, returns to the Museum of Natural History to visit his friends, the exhibits that come to life at night, only to learn that they are being shipped off into deep storage at the Smithsonian Institution. Larry rushes to Washington, D.C. and makes his way into the inner workings of the largest museum complex in the world. He finds himself with spunky Amelia Earhart as a co-conspirator and love interest while General Custer leads the battle for the Smithsonian. Rated PG for mild action, brief language.
I Hate Valentine’s Day (limited) A lonely woman falls in love on the day she dreads the most and experiences all the elements of a relationship within the space of a single Feb. 14. Rated PG-13.
Up July 11, 2 p.m. (Edward Asner, Jordan Nagai) Elderly balloon salesman Carl finally fulfills his lifelong dream of a great adventure when he ties thousands of balloons to this house and flies away to the wilds of South America.

Opening this Week Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs Manny, Sid, Diego and Ellie are back in this third film in the computer-animated Ice Age series. With those creatures in starring roles, fans also get another dose of the vocal talents of Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary, and Queen Latifah. Manny and Ellie are expecting their first baby, while Sid the sloth tries an unconventional way of starting a family that gets him into trouble. With all this talk of babies, Diego might be losing his saber-toothed edge, but a journey to save Sid may just turn the whole group into heroes. In addition to all that adventure, it wouldn’t be an Ice Age film if Scrat weren’t on a desperate hunt for an acorn, but he might get distracted by a shapely female squirrel. Rated PG.
Terminator: Salvation Sunday, 2 p.m.; July 9, 7 p.m. (Christian Bale, Sam Worthington) John Connor is the man fated to lead the human resistance against Skynet and its army of Terminators. But the future Connor was raised to believe in is altered in part by the appearance of Marcus Wright, a stranger whose last memory is of being on death row. As Skynet prepares its final onslaught, Connor and Marcus both embark on an odyssey that takes them into the heart of Skynet’s operations. Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence/action, language.

Fort Campbell Courier
Thursday July 2, 2009
Johnny Speight and Jim Herrenbruk of Son Seekers, a competition barbecue team, take hot dogs off the grill during a June 12 lunch for Fort Campbell Soldiers and their families. The teams cooked more than 650 pounds of pork along with hot dogs, hamburgers and chicken.
othing says fourth of July more than family, friends, fireworks and barbecue. While the grill may be the main attraction, there are other summer dishes and desserts to consider. Here are some easy ones to consider making or bringing to an Independence Day cookout.
Easy Spinach Artichoke Dip: 1 package cream cheese 1/4 cup mayonnaise 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese 1 clove garlic, finely minced (or 1 tsp. out of the jar) 1/2 tsp. dried basil 1/4 tsp. garlic salt 1 jar artichoke hearts, drained and chopped 1/2 cup spinach, drained and chopped 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, grated Allow cream cheese to come to room temperature. Mix well, cream cheese, mayo, Parmesan, garlic, basil and garlic salt. Add the artichoke hearts and spinach, and mix until blended. Grease pan, pour in dip and top with Mozzarella. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 min. or until the top is browned, Serve with toasted bread or chips.
Mixed Vegetable Salad:
All-American Summer Flavor Easy, Pleasy Peach Cobbler: 1 large can lite sliced peaches Yellow cake mix Sugar Cinnamon Drain can of peaches and lay slices in a 8x8 (or 9x9) glass (microwave safe) cake pan. Cover peaches with dry cake mix (usually about 1/2 of the contents of the box) and sprinkle (to taste) with cinnamon and sugar. Cook in microwave for 15 minutes. When removed from microwave topping will still be mushy; allow to cool and it will firm up a bit.
Frozen Lemonade Pie:
Greek burgers: Burgers: 4 garlic cloves (or cheat, and use minced garlic) 1 1/4 lbs. ground beef 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese 3/4 tsp. dried oregano 1/2 tsp. salt 1/2 tsp. black pepper
¾ cup white vinegar ½ cup vegetable oil 1 Tbs. water 1 cup sugar 1 tsp. salt 1 tsp. pepper 1 can french-style green beans (drained) 1 can english peas (drained) 1 can white corn (drained) 1 jar chopped pimento (drained) 1 green bell pepper, chopped 1 cup celery, chopped 1 small red onion, chopped 1 small white onion, chopped
Sauce: 1/2 large cucumber, peeled, grated and squeezed very dry 3/4 cup sour cream 1 Tbs. minced fresh mint leaves 1 tsp. red or rice wine vinegar 1 clove garlic, minced
Mix first six ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Set aside to cool. Mix next eight ingredients in a large bowl. Pour the liquid mixture over the drained/ chopped vegetables. Mix well. Chill for 12 to 14 hours for best flavor before serving.
Caprese Salad: 2 large tomatoes Mozzarella (ball or log) Fresh basil leaves Olive oil Balsamic Vinegar Fresh ground pepper Cut tomatoes and mozzarella into 1/4 inch slices. Layer 1 each of tomato, basil leaf and mozzarella. Sprinkle with pepper, and drizzle olive oil and balsamic vinegar on top to taste. For a meal, add toasted Italian bread on side or as a sandwich.
Toast garlic until spotty brown, about 5 minutes. Peel, mince and set aside. (If using minced garlic, simply brown for a few minutes in a frying pan). Break up ground meat in a medium bowl. Sprinkle meat with roasted garlic, feta, oregano, salt and pepper; combine. Divide into 4 patties. Refrigerate at least 15-20 minutes. Mix cucumber, sour cream, mint, vinegar, 1 minced clove of garlic, and salt and pepper to taste in a small bowl. Refrigerate sauce until ready to serve. Build a hot fire on one side of grill. Replace rack. When coals are covered with white ash, add burgers. Cover and cook, turning only once, until done, about 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium to medium-well burgers. (Note: Do not overcook. It will ruin the taste) These burgers can be served on regular buns, or in pita bread. You can save a step by buying prepared Tatziki sauce, or Greek yogurt.
Combine chilled milk, whipped topping and frozen lemonade until thoroughly mixed, but not soupy. Pour in Frozen Lemon Pie graham cracker crust and freeze overnight.
No Bake Cookies: 4 ounces butter or margarine 1/2 cup milk 2 cups sugar 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips 3 to 4 Tbs. peanut butter 3 cups oats, quick or old-fashioned 1 tsp. vanilla extract Place chocolate chips, peanut butter, oats and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Combine the margarine, milk and sugar in a saucepan; bring to a rolling boil. Boil for 1 minute. Combine the hot mixture with the oatmeal and chocolate chip mixture; stir well. Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper or pour into a 9X13 glass pan. Let cool and cut into squares.
9-inch baked pie shell 6 cups strawberries (about 1 1/2 quarts) 1 cup sugar 3 Tbs. cornstarch 1/2 cup water 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1½ lb. ground beef 1 onion, chopped 1 or 2 Tbs. sugar 1 Tbs. vinegar 2 Tbs. mustard 2-3 cans tomato soup 1 tsp. salt 2 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce ¼ cup molasses
Graham cracker crust 14 oz can condensed milk (chilled) 1 tub whipped topping 1 can frozen lemonade concentrate
Photo by Cathy Gramling | Chef
Brown hamburger and onions; add remaining ingredients and simmer 1-2 hours.
Bake pie shell. Mash enough strawberries to measure 1 cup. Mix sugar and cornstarch in 2-quart saucepan. Stir in water and strawberries gradually. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir 1 minute; cool. Beat cream cheese until smooth; spread on bottom of pie shell. Fill shell with remaining strawberries; pour cooked strawberry mixture over top. Refrigerate until set (at least 3 hours).
All recipes came from the Fort Campbell Public Affairs’ office staff, who have tested and recommended their favorites.
Marinademagic Succulent Steak: 3 Tbs. red wine vinegar 1 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce 1 Tbs. olive oil 2 tsp. crushed garlic
Kickin’ Chicken: 1/4 cup lemon juice 1 tsp. crushed garlic 2 Tbs. olive oil 1/4 cup vinegar (or just use your favorite Italian dressing)
Tasty Burgers: Flavorsome Fish: Lather burger patties in 1/2 cup maple syrup Worcestershire sauce, barbecue 2 Tbs. Dijon mustard sauce or any other sauce you 1 1/2 tsp. salt have in the kitchen. 1/2 tsp. pepper
*For best results, marinade for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight, and reserve 1/4 cup of marinade to add to meat as barbecuing.

NOTICE TO CUSTOMERS OF KENTUCKY UTILITIES COMPANY RECOVERY BY ENVIRONMENTAL SURCHARGE OF KENTUCKY UTILITIES COMPANY’S 2009 ENVIRONMENTAL COMPLIANCE PLAN PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that on June 26, 2009, Kentucky Utilities Company (“KU”) filed with the Kentucky Public Service Commission (“Commission”) in Case No. 2009-00197, an Application pursuant to Kentucky Revised Statute 278.183 for approval of an amended compliance plan (“KU’s 2009 Environmental Compliance Plan”) for the purpose of recovering the capital costs and operation and maintenance costs associated with new pollution control facilities through an environmental surcharge on customers’ bills beginning February 2010, under KU’s existing rate mechanism known as the environmental cost recovery surcharge or “Electric Rate Schedule ECR.” Federal, state and local environmental regulations require KU to continually build and upgrade equipment and facilities in order to operate in an environmentally sound manner. Specifically, KU is seeking Commission approval of a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity (“CPCN”) to construct a new Selective Catalytic Reduction system (“SCR”) for Brown Unit 3 at the E.W. Brown Generating Station in Burgin, Kentucky to comply with federally mandated nitrogen oxides requirements, and approval for CPCNs to construct new landfill facilities at the Ghent Generating Station in Ghent, Kentucky and at the Trimble County Generating Station near Wises Landing in Trimble County, Kentucky. Additionally, KU is seeking recovery of costs associated with these environmental projects, which are necessary for compliance with the Federal Clean Air Act, the Federal Clean Water Act and the Federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act. These additional projects primarily relate to installation of an SCR system on Brown Unit 3, expansion of the coal combustion byproduct (“CCP”) treatment basin at the E.W. Brown Generation Station, expansion of the CCP treatment basins at the Trimble County Generating Station, construction of new landfill facilities at the Ghent and Trimble County generating stations, and certain operating costs associated with the Air Quality Control System equipment necessary to operate Trimble County Unit 2 within the approved environmental limitations. The capital cost of the new pollution control facilities for which KU is seeking recovery at this time is estimated to be $463 million. Additional operation and maintenance expense will be incurred for these facilities.

Coping with early pregnancy loss Experts offer advice for dealing with miscarriage ACOG Release Early pregnancy loss – or miscarriage – is the loss of a pregnancy before 20 weeks. Estimates suggest that up to 50 to 75 percent of fertilized eggs are lost, many before a woman even misses her menstrual period. Among confirmed pregnancies in the US, between 15 and 20 percent are miscarried. Most miscarriages occur between seven and 12 weeks of pregnancy, and the cause can be hard to pinpoint. A large number of fetal deaths are due to genetic problems that would have made it impossible for the fetus to survive outside the womb. On rare occasions, infection, hormonal factors, immune responses and serious health issues of the woman can also cause early pregnancy loss. The risk of miscarriage is higher in
women with a chronic disease such as uncontrolled diabetes and in those with a history of repeated pregnancy loss. It is more likely in women older than 35. It is estimated that more than onethird of pregnancies among women over age 40 are miscarried. Some women worry that daily tasks, such as going to work, exercising or having sex, will increase the risk of or cause a miscarriage. But these safe activities will not harm healthy pregnancies. Signs of a miscarriage may include vaginal bleeding, lower back or abdominal pain, cramps or tissue that passes from the vagina. Contact your doctor if you are or think you might be pregnant and notice any of these symptoms. When a doctor suspects that a woman has miscarried, he or she will examine the cervix to see whether it has dilated. If the pregnancy has been lost, the doctor will perform a procedure called a dilation and curettage or will provide medication to remove any remaining
tissue (from the fetus or the placenta) from the woman’s uterus to help avoid heavy bleeding and infection. Miscarriage can be devastating for women and families and often involves more than the physical loss of a fetus. Fortunately, previous miscarriage does not usually have long-term effects on a woman’s fertility, and the majority of women who have had them go on to successfully carry a pregnancy to full term. Making healthy lifestyle changes such as maintaining weight, staying active, quitting smoking, and stopping the use of alcohol and illegal drugs may improve the odds of a healthy next pregnancy. Counseling may help women and their partners cope with the grief, anger, isolation, fear, and helplessness that some individuals experience after pregnancy loss. For more information, the ACOG Patient Education Pamphlet “Early Pregnancy Loss” is available in English and Spanish at www.acog.org/publications/.

WASHINGTON – The Army is currently taking steps to help prevent and stop the spread of the H1N1 virus for Soldiers at home and abroad. The Army has reported a total of 191 cases of the H1N1 virus, or swine flu, as of June 12. The military is actively pursuing vaccine production for both the regular and swine flu, according to Col. Jonathan Jaffin, director of Heath Policy and Services in the Army’s Office of the Surgeon General. Soldiers will be vaccinated as soon as the medicines become available, he said during a Blogger’s Roundtable Thursday. “There has been significant news coverage about the H1N1 virus, and the Army is taking it seriously,” Jaffin said. “We want to illustrate why we feel like there is no cause for panic or alarm.” Jaffin went on to state that all segments of the government, as well as international partners, are working together to stop the spread of the flu among members of the military. “The best treatment for the flu is prevention,” Jaffin said.
Steps for prevention include washing hands and limiting contact with infected persons, surfaces and objects like door knobs. Soldiers who feel symptoms of flu including dizziness, fatigue and fever should report sick call and stay at home, Jaffin said. “Their very nature is to come in and work when they aren’t feeling well. We are reminding them if they have flu symptoms to stay home. They have a strong sense of duty that sometimes interferes with ability to stay home,” Jaffin said. “That is one of the main things we emphasize with them.” Soldiers afflicted with the flu can effectively treat symptoms with over-the-counter medication like Tamiflu. In order to decrease the chances of infection, all Soldiers are being screened for the flu before they travel overseas. No missions have been impacted by the virus as of yet, officials said. The DoD is working with the World Heath Organization’s Emerging Illness Network and the Global Emerging Infection Surveillance, which is a DoD program, in assisting with the prevention and surveillance of the virus.

Continued from Page 1B
I think you should call and ask to speak to his commander or his first sergeant. Iâ€™m not sure whatâ€™s going on with him. However, from your report it sounds like this behavior is totally out of character. I am very concerned for him too. From his letters to you it appears that he could be experiencing some symptoms of combat stress. There are many resources and services available to help him reintegrate and help him emotionally and mentally. I donâ€™t want to do too much speculation. Again, his unit would be a great place to start. They will be able to give you some answers about your sonâ€™s whereabouts. I donâ€™t know how close you live to Fort Campbell, but you
should also consider visiting the base for more information. Keep in touch. RESPONSES: Dear Ms. Vicki, In response to Ex Nanny I have to agree, children here seem to be out of control. Iâ€™m a parent of two and I understand that it isnâ€™t the easiest task raising children. I have to say though there are some tough kids here. I have also witnessed the many screams, shouts and tantrums displayed in public. One instance, a little boy dared his mom to discipline him in the store and she just looked at him like a â€œdeer in headlights.â€? After all was said and done she still bought the ice cream that he demanded from her. I was in complete and utter shock. I couldnâ€™t help but stare and
pinch my arm to make sure I wasnâ€™t dreaming. I believe, as military parents, we have to keep our children under control it makes our job that much easier when our spouses are deployed. I hope parents read this and thrive to do a little bit better. No parent is perfect but we have to get our children prepared for the world because society isnâ€™t going to be as lenient with them. From: Got to Agree Dear Ms. Vicki, This is the first time Iâ€™ve ever written to any sort of newspaper column so please bear with me. I am also a military spouse who came from an era where â€œkids are seen but not heard.â€? I have children ranging from 8-16 years of age and every now and then I give my kids a
whooping if they need one. My husband and I are firm believers in disciplining our children, teaching them common courtesy and providing them with the structure needed to become responsible adults. Not all military kids are â€œspoiled, obnoxious or bratty,â€? there is quite a few fun-loving, good natured children in our military community. So until youâ€™ve walked in a parentâ€™s shoe, stop judging! Dear Ms. Vicki, While I was quite annoyed at the woman who called herself an Infantry Elitist, I am quite surprised no one mentioned the Ordnance Corps in the responses. My husband is a maintenance technician, a mechanic prior to that, and without him and those who do what he does, there would be no mede-
vac helicopters to fly or trucks to transport supplies or artillery to use. The Army works as a team to complete the missions, no one greater then the other, but equal. From: H. B.
ful to her, he doesnâ€™t love her and he will always do it again and again. Ms. Vicki you should use your column to tell people the unmitigated truth and never shy away from it. Stay real Ms. Vicki.
Dear Ms. Vicki, Iâ€™m an avid reader of your column and a fan of your advice. I think you keep it real most of the time, except when it comes to cheating husbands. You seem to stay out of it when a woman is pondering whether she should forgive him or move on. I think this is when you donâ€™t want to tell the truth for some reason. Like the writer last week. I would like to tell her once a cheater always a cheater. You should tell her just that. She needs to move on and in a hurry. He will never be faith-
Dear Ms. Vicki, This is in reference to the woman who wrote you last week. I disagree with your advice. She should leave him. My husband cheated on me after all I had done for him. I was true to him and always supportive of him and his career. I forgave him and to my surprise he did the same thing again. Never trust a man when he steps into another womanâ€™s room and into her bed. Things will never be the same, trust me I know first-hand.

Keep livin’ easy Safety makes summer fun by Spc. Scott Davis 101st Airborne Division
Summer is the perfect time for fun in the water, whether it’s boating, swimming or just hanging out on the bank of a river. Unfortunately, it’s also a perfect time for accidents, injuries and even death if safety gear is not used and rules are not followed. In 2008, 159 boating accidents were reported totaling $1,461,264 in damages according to a report issued by the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency. The top contributing factor for fatal accidents was alcohol. “Tennessee is ranked within the top 10 for fatal boating accidents,” said Betsy Wood, boating education coordinator for Tennessee. “Boats capsize and people without a life jacket - people who know how to swim - drown.” TWRA’s Web site states wearing a life jacket is the single most effective way to protect boaters and reduce drowning in boating accidents. Eighty percent of those who drown in boating accidents were not wearing a life jacket. “When you’re on the river, on a boat or swimming, make sure you have life jackets for everyone,” said Jane Wagner, Fort Campbell aquatics manager. “Make sure you have the right size and grade for what you’re doing.” Drowning isn’t the only thing that concerns Wagner. She said the sun is a dangerous factor for water recreation and sunscreen is one of the most important things you can take with you. “You should put sunscreen on 30 minutes before leaving the house and every one and a half to two hours that you’re out,” she said. “It doesn’t matter if the bottle says waterproof or not.” According to www.cancer.gov, there have been more than a million new cases in 2009 and www.skincancer.org states one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. “It doesn’t matter what race you are or if you’re male or female, everyone needs sunscreen, especially children,” Wagner said. Along with sunscreen, Wagner outlined other important things to take on a water recreation outing. “If you’re planning on going swimming or boating you need to make sure that your children and yourselves are properly hydrated and have the right nutrition,” Wagner
I know a lot of people think when they’re going to the pool it can be junk food day, but beer, sodas and sugary foods will dehydrate you. Jane Wagner, Fort Campbell aquatics manager

said. “Water and food like grapes are ideal for swimming. I know a lot of people think when they’re going to the pool it can be junk food day, but beer, sodas and sugary foods will dehydrate you. Add that to a dangerous activity such as swimming and you could be in trouble.” Swimmers also need to be wary of their children and their ability to swim. “Please make sure your kids are aware of what their capabilities are and make sure you know what their capabilities are,” Wagner said. “Make sure you’re watching your kids. Lifeguards are there to watch everyone,
but they’re not there to babysit your kids.” The U.S. Army Combat Readiness/ Safety Center recently launched an interactive multimedia Water Safety tool on its homepage, https://safety. army.mil/watersafety. The site is an effort to reduce the number of water related incidences for Soldiers, family members and civilians. For further information on boating safety go to www.tnwildlife.com. For any more information on swimming safety or swimming classes, call the Gardner Pool at (270) 798-6310 or (270)-798-6304
In an effort to reduce the number of incidences of water related deaths and injuries to Soldiers, family members and civilians, the U. S. Army Combat Readiness/Safety Center has launched an interactive, Web-based, multimedia Water Safety tool available on the USACR/ Safety Center home page at https:// safety.army.mil/WaterSafety. The new tool, which requires users to have Adobe Flash Player 9 installed on their computers, is designed to provide water safetyrelated content in an appealing and engaging format. “In 2007, the Army lost 15 Soldiers in water-related accidents,” Dr. Patricia LeDuc, USACR/Safety Center Human Factors Task Force director, said. “Although that number went down last year, we never want to see it that high again and a tool like Water Safety is going to help us keep complacency low and safe water fun high.” The new Water Safety tool features safety-related content presented to the user through links, videos and informative safety challenges.
Kids encouraged to participate in disaster preparedness by C. Todd Lopez Army News Service
WASHINGTON – Hurricane season will blow in soon and families need to be prepared. “Now is the time to make your plan if you don’t have one, or rehearse your old plan,” said Jim Platt, deputy director of the Army Protection Division. “And to make sure you’ve got everything in your kit you need and most importantly to doublecheck your evacuation route so your family knows where to go - and not just from your home.” Ensuring families are prepared for emergencies is one of the roles of the Army Protection Division, and it does so through the Ready Army program. ‘We realize preparing for an emergency is the responsibility of every Soldier, family member, Department of the Army civilian and contractor,” said Jim Platt. “So we want to make sure in the ‘Ready Army’ program we give them the tools they need to get prepared, to make a kit, and to survive any emergency.” The Ready Army program, which began in September 2008, is designed to prepare the entire Army family at installations and communities across the nation and around the world for all potential hazards, natural and man-made. This year, the Ready Army program is sponsoring a new program, “Prepared Kids,” the aim of which is to get younger family members involved in
the discussion about how to be ready for disasters. “To make sure families are involved we are [providing] the kids with some fun activities to get them involved so that they talk to their parents,” Platt said. “It opens an avenue so they can talk to their parents and become the impetus for getting the program started.” This year, children aged 7-18 can participate in the Prepared Kids Competition. The idea is for Army children and teens to share their ideas for preparing for emergencies by creating individual works that highlight preparedness. Children and teens can submit such things as a poem or song lyrics they have written, a short video, a poster, T-shirt or bookmark design, a personal story of experiencing an emergency, an essay or creative novella, a 30-second public service announcement for radio or television, a preparedness game, a drawing, sculpture or musical piece; or even computer software they have written. “Anywhere their imagination takes them, they can use to submit to the program, with the intent of helping other kids get ready,” Platt said. “When you get the kids involved in this, it opens up a dialogue with parents and gets parents thinking about readiness.” Being prepared for an emergency such as a hurricane, a flood, a fire or a tornado means planning as a family, Platt said.
Dear Ms. Vicki, My son is in the Army, stationed at Fort Campbell. He spent time in Afghanistan, but it is my understanding that he returned in January 2009. Before my son left, I thought we were so close. He kept in touch with us when he first got to Afghanistan, and then the e-mails started coming less and less. He started writing that he was having trouble sleeping, having bad dreams and feeling very stressed. Then we stopped hearing from him all together. Christmas ‘08, we did not hear from him at all. I started sending letters all over, trying to find out what was going on. My husband finally went to our local recruiting office; they called Fort Campbell, who contacted Afghanistan to tell our son to contact us. So in the beginning of 2009, we got an e-mail saying he was OK and not to worry- that if he died, it would be for our country and to be proud of that. Then we did not hear from him again. In April, I found out that my son had come home in January of this year. He never contacted us! We kept sending e-mails saying that we heard his unit had come home. Eventually, he sent one e-mail saying; yes he had come home in January but did not have time to contact us. It is now the end of May. We have not heard from him again. We think that the plan is for him to be home for one year, then deployed back to Afghanistan. He has already been home for five months and not contacted us. Then we keep hearing that there are multiple suicides happening in the Army, and specifically a large number at Fort Campbell. As you can imagine, we are very worried for our son, who just turned 20 years old in December. We are so proud of him, but he is young and we are worried about his wellbeing. Is he depressed? Why did he forget about his family? Does their brotherhood with their fellow Soldiers, become the only family they need once going to a war zone? Should we take action? What if he is suicidal? Is there anyone we can talk to at the base that could help us? Is there any type of hotline we can call if worried about our son’s mental wellbeing? Please help us! What if he is one of our country’s Soldiers who is contemplating suicide? How can we help him if we have no way to contact him? Is there help for our family? Please return my e-mail with answers. Thank you for your time. From: a very concerned Mom who loves her son and wants to make sure he is OK Dear Mother, Thank you so much for writing me. My heart really goes out to you. I have a 20-year-old son too. I can’t imagine not hearing from him, so I know you are hurting tremendously. Have you heard anything from him since you’ve written me? My first suggestion would be to contact his unit at Fort Campbell. His unit would definitely give you information.

This year, children aged 7-18 can participate in the Prepared Kids Competition. The idea is for Army children and teens to share their ideas for preparing for emergencies by creating individual works that highlight preparedness.
Families must have the tools ready if an emergency happens, having everyone know what the plan is, and having everyone well-versed in how to execute that plan. “If all the families out there take our advice, get a kit, get prepared and rehearse a plan - then we have done our job,” Platt said. “Then, when a Soldier is deployed, they won’t be worried about their families being able to survive in an incident.” Platt said that family readi-
ness for emergencies is important to Army readiness, because a deployed Soldier worried about his family back home might not have his mind on the mission. “The worst-case scenario is we have a hurricane come in and it comes to one of our bases and we have a brigade combat team from that base that is deployed, and now that Soldier is sitting in Fallujah wondering if their family is okay,” Platt said. “If before they left, they went through the rehearsals, then
they know their family knows how to get out of the area and knows where to go - it will take a lot off their minds and allow them to concentrate on what is happening where they are.” More information on the “Ready Army” and the Prepared Kids competition be found at http://ready.army.mil. Winners will be announced in September and will be recognized for their contributions as well as have their winning submission featured on the Ready Army Web site.

Army lab works to improve Soldier health, performance by Fred W. Baker III American Forces Press Service
NATICK, Mass. â€“ Nestled in the shadows of the Boston skyline, scientists and Soldiers in a one-of-a-kind Army laboratory work quietly behind the scenes to improve the health and performance of todayâ€™s troops. Though itâ€™s known to relatively few outside of scientific and academic circles, the labâ€™s work leaves its fingerprint on nearly everything Soldiers eat, wear and use. The U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine is housed on a leafy, waterside post at the Soldier Systems Center here, alongside a handful of other military research and development agencies. But while those agencies are busy readying the force with rations, clothes and gear, the environmental medicine lab focuses on the physiological effects those items have on the Soldier. About 200 people work on staff at the lab, and the scientists say their work concentrates on the â€œskin inâ€? while the other development labs on post focus on Soldier equipment, or the â€œskin out.â€? â€œWeâ€™re not designing the equipment. Weâ€™re not designing the backpacks. But we essentially try to evaluate and make sure they are doing what they are supposed to do to optimize the Soldiersâ€™ performance,â€? said Edward Zambraski, chief of the military performance division at the institute, who holds a doctorate in exercise physiology. Shortly after World War II, Army officials realized Soldiers would continue to be deployed worldwide and wanted a research facility that could study the environmental and operational impacts on the health and performance of troops in a variety of climates and conditions. The institute as it stands today eventually was formed in 1961 from a composite of other federal and academic laboratories. It is the Defense Departmentâ€™s lead research lab for operational medicine, and spends about $28 million annually on its efforts. Using high-tech, multi-milliondollar facilities, scientists and technicians can simulate the searing summer heat of Iraq and measure its effects on Soldiersâ€™ performance. They can reproduce the effects of the high altitudes and freezing temperatures of the mountains in Afghanistan, gathering data that can help commanders predict how many Soldiers will succumb to mountain sickness on an infantry patrol there. â€œWe basically can duplicate the environmental conditions here [of those] almost anywhere in the world where our warfighters are going to be deployed,â€? said Christopher Joyce, the labâ€™s head of technology transfer and marketing. The labâ€™s two climatic research chambers â€“ each 60 feet long, 11 feet high and 15 feet wide â€“ are among the largest and most sophisticated environmental test chambers in the world. They can simulate environmental conditions ranging from the arctic to the tropics. The tunnels can blast wind up to 40 mph and rain up to four inches an hour. Temperatures can drop to minus 70 degrees and soar to 165 degrees. The labâ€™s two altitude chambers can simulate altitudes of up to nearly 30,000 feet and temperatures to minus 25 degrees. A water-immersion lab simulates cold and hot environments in a 10,000gallon concrete pool.
But the lab does not test only the effects of heat and cold or high altitude. It tests nearly everything that affects the Soldier. A weapons simulator at the lab can mimic the ballistic characteristics of 25 different weapons, and is used among other research tools to test warfighter responses to sustained operations and fatigue. It also is used to test marksmanship training methods. A biomechanics research lab with infrared cameras and sensors captures Soldiersâ€™ movements while marching, and a unique, patented treadmill invented at the lab measures the force placed on their bodies while shouldering a load. Two life-sized anatomical models capable of mimicking walking and sweating are used to test uniformsâ€™ thermal and vapor-resistance values. They have been used by the military since 1943, and scientists there have nicknamed them â€œthe oldest Soldiers still serving in the Army.â€? The models currently helping Army officials choose the next version of the serviceâ€™s chemical protection suit. Everything a Soldier eats and drinks is sliced, diced and boiled down in a state-of-the-art metabolic kitchen by dieticians who monitor the nutritional makeup of the rations and make recommendations for additions to Soldiersâ€™ diets. â€œThe real impetus is to try to figure out ways that we could use nutritional interventions to help Soldiers,â€? said Harris Lieberman, who holds a doctorate in physiological psychology and serves with the labâ€™s military nutrition division. â€œWe know that Soldiers have very difficult jobs. There are a lot of stressors they are exposed to. Nutrition is hopefully a safe way of giving a little bit of help to somebody whoâ€™s got a lot of requirements and stresses on them, if you can show that it actually works.â€? Separate contractors produce the same food products within general guidelines, but the lab tests for what is not on the published nutritional label. Before the lab can recommend nutritionally supplementing the rations, its scientists have to know what is in them. The lab also studies the effects of both under- and over-eating on Soldiersâ€™ performance. The institute also conducts research at three off-site facilities housed at Pikeâ€™s Peak, Colo.; Fort Bragg, N.C.; and at the Center for the Intrepid at Fort Sam Houston, Texas. Much of the instituteâ€™s research is conducted using data collected from Soldiers. Some are recruited to take part in the studies at the end of their advanced training. The Soldiers are offered a 90-day stint at the lab before moving on to their first permanent duty station. All are briefed on the studies and the risks, and are medically cleared before they are allowed to participate. Most of the chambers house treadmills and stationary bicycles used to assess the effects on the physical performance and physiological responses of Soldiers to the stressors. Soldiers typically are subjected to multiple stressors at the same time for a single study. For example, they are required to march on a treadmill while in an environment that simulates a high altitude and low temperature. Or they may be submersed in cold water, tasked with riding a stationary bike, and then removed and asked to perform additional critical-thinking or physical tasks. â€œWe try to mimic the situation

Sergeant. Michael Cavallo, a research assistant at the U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine, Natick, Mass., is fitted May 6 with sensors that will be detected by infrared cameras as he walks on a patented, force-sensing treadmill invented by those at the lab. The sensors capture his movements and translate it to data and the treadmill measures the force placed on his body while shouldering a load. Bottom left, Edward Zambraski, chief of the military performance division at the U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine, Natick, Mass., talks about research conducted on exoskeletal systems in the instituteâ€™s biomechanics lab, May 6.

that theyâ€™re in,â€? Zambraski said. â€œIf they have to perform in the heat and itâ€™s at altitude, then we will mimic that situation and we will combine those two things. Weâ€™re doing research that has to apply to a very unique situation in theater. And so we do everything we can to control the variables, but to make those variables look realistic.â€? Showers, toilets and running water are installed for multi-day tests in some of the chambers. In 1985, a small group of Soldiers lived for 40 days in one of the chambers while the atmospheric pressure was gradually reduced, simulating an ascent of Mount Everest. The institute sits on the only active-duty Army post within the New England states, and is far removed from the larger installations where most troops spend their time training for and deploying to combat. Most Soldiers have no idea of the extent of research behind deciding what cloth their uniform is threaded from or the design of a new combat helmet, and many are eager to participate to better outfit their brothers in arms. â€œI always thought a lot of this gear and equipment that weâ€™re wearing came from just one guy in a room clicking on a button making all the arbitrary decisions,â€? said Sgt. Glenn Brunson, a mental health specialist who now works at the lab and manages the Soldier volunteer program. Brunson admits he didnâ€™t know the lab existed until he was assigned there. But despite its nearly anonymous efforts at warrior care, the studies at the lab have translated into products that commanders now use to make better decisions in the field and in training.
Much of the instituteâ€™s work is published in the form of Army doctrine or in medical manuals that lay out guidelines commanders use for training and combat operations. They address water requirements, the weights of loads carried by Soldiers, heat, cold and altitude health and performance issues, as well as nutritional requirements. One recent study by the labâ€™s nutrition division showed that caffeine supplements in Soldiersâ€™ diets led to better decision making during periods of operational stress. Another showed that caffeine improved target detection response time and reduced friendly-fire errors. The Armyâ€™s new â€œFirst Strikeâ€? ration now carries caffeine gum and other natural supplements in its rations. Another study pointed to the use of a backpack hip belt that shifted 30 percent of the weight to the hips, reducing back pain. This has become problematic for the Army, as loads carried on the backs of combat troops have grown, and the number of medical disability discharges has soared. Most are muscle and bone related, Zambraski said. â€œItâ€™s a huge problem,â€? he added. Besides minimizing the risk of injuries, the institute also addresses how to maximize performance. The lab worked with the Army as it developed a new fitness program for its recruits that involved fewer weights and gym workouts and more calisthenics. â€œWe know that the harder you train, the more fit youâ€™re going to be, to an extent,â€? Zambraski said. â€œBut the harder you train, youâ€™re also putting yourself at risk for injury. So how can we
train a Soldier so that we maximize both of these things â€“ fitness and capability â€“ as well as minimize the injury potential?â€? The data the lab collects is programmed into medical â€œmodelsâ€? that can help commanders predict the likelihood of injuries and also help ensure they are getting the most out of their troops. The Army Rangers, for example, have asked for a model that will take into account climate conditions for its road-march tests. They want to vary load and pace based on weather conditions to ensure peak performance on the marches. A weather model, now built into a meteorological system mounted into Army vehicles, places overlays on a map based on the current weather conditions that show a commander how those conditions will affect both his Soldiers and equipment. â€œThey may want to tailor the mission. Should we go up and over or should we go around? This gives them a situational awareness to make the right scientifically based decision on that,â€? said Laurie Blanchard, a biomedical engineer at the institute who helped to design the system. Scientists at the lab liken their efforts to those that are used to enhance the performance and reduce the risk of injury of professional athletes. Professional football and basketball clubs sometimes spend millions of dollars to recruit and train top athletes. While no individual Soldierâ€™s recruiting contract is in that financial neighborhood, the Army is spending record amounts for training and for enlistment and retention bonuses as it tries to grow
its force while fighting two wars. Hard-to-fill, highly trained Special Forces jobs are especially critical. This places greater emphasis on ensuring those trained stay healthy and in the fight. â€œThe Soldier is a high-performance athlete. But unlike Lance Armstrong, whoâ€™s got a whole team of folks, â€Ś we rely on our Soldiers basically to take care of themselves,â€? said Army Col. (Dr.) Keith Hiatt, the head of medical support for the institute. â€œSo we need to get them the best equipment and the best food and best â€Ś advice to help them along.â€? While not officially designated as a joint facility, the institute does not work solely within the confines of the Army, officials said. It has conducted tests and provided data for the Marines, Navy and Air Force. The Coast Guard uses a weather model that predicts cold-water survival times to determine how to look for survivors. The institute has more than 70 research agreements with private industry, academic and other government institutions. The institute has worked with other countriesâ€™ militaries and has 12 of its staff on various NATO panels. The surgeon general from France visited the institute just months ago. To date, the institute has garnered six patents on its science, and more are pending, with patent license agreements that could bring as much as $8 million back to the institute for additional research and the transfer of its technology. â€œEverybody uses this research,â€? Hiatt said. â€œI think what we do is very scientifically valid and relevant for our warfighters today.â€?

Rakkasan Soldiers hone skills in MOUT training by Spc. Chris McKenna 3rd Brigade Combat Team
New techniques based on prior experiences is the way the Soldiers of Company B, 3rd Battalion, 187th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, are trained. June 23 and 24 the Rakkasans conducted Military Operations in Urban Terrain training at Range 38. The training consisted of room clearing procedures, controlled fire drills, reflexive fire drills, ready up drills, as well as a live fire walkthrough of the actual MOUT house. â€œMy experience started in 2004 when I was in basic myself and I think one of the key notes of training today is trying to break some old habits, especially for some of the older gentlemen here,â€? said 2nd Lt. Matthew Ward, platoon leader with Co. B, 3-187th Inf. Regt. â€œItâ€™s no longer just doing controlled pairs to put down threats, itâ€™s putting down threats until you can confirm
yourself that they are down.â€? Being prior enlisted with the National Guard, Ward has previously deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, and knows this training is beneficial from firsthand experience. â€œThis training is crucial; although Afghanistan is not the most urbanized environment, there are still complex farmhouses and homes where threats may live, that we will have to enter,â€? Ward said. â€œSo this training is preparing our Soldiers on how to deal with that environment.â€? With an overwhelming majority of the company consisting of new Soldiers, this training is both new, and important to instill on those who have recently arrived to the unit. â€œEveryone on my team is new, so the training for them is really good,â€? said Cpl. Gary Loduha, team leader with Co. B, 3-187th Inf. Regt. â€œYou need to know the basics before you can enter free flow training; this
is pretty simple, there is no furniture and minimal obstacles.â€? The training being conducted is only the basics, over time different procedures and obstacles will be added, Loduha said. The new Soldiers seem to be taking the training to heart, trying to grasp anything and everything that is being taught to them. â€œThe training is getting to the point now to where it is becoming like second nature, since we repeat the drills so often,â€? said Pfc. Joseph Rivera, gunner with Co. B, 3-187th Inf. Regt. Entering the MOUT training site did not just happen overnight. It was a process that took over a month, starting with paper sketches, moving up to glass houses, or simulated houses, to actually entering the MOUT site. â€œWe go through it thoroughly,â€? Loduha said. â€œThe more we go through it, the more the Soldiers are picking it up.â€?

Bastogne medics train entire brigade by Spc. Richard Daniels Jr. 1st BCT
Soldiers of the 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division, recently conducted the Eagle First Responder Course to train its Soldiers to provide medical care to casualties, June 22 – 25. Bastogne Soldiers know that a medic is not always readily available in combat, so to assist in this, Staff Sgt. Micheal Fuemmeler, Medic Platoon, HHC, 1st Brigade Combat Team, and his medics, Spc. Mickey Mottet, Spc. Juan Garcia, Sgt. Lebarron Black, and Pfc. Lucas Hunt, taught Soldiers the basics in Combat Lifesaving. “We went over the [Tactical Combat Casualty Care] program to ensure Soldiers on what to do when they take enemy contact, how to properly get a casualty treated and evacuated out, safe and efficiently,” said Hunt, HHC, 1st Battalion, 327th Infantry Regiment. “We went over how to properly apply a tourniquet, saline locks, IV sets and apply trauma bandages, so in the event that something goes really wrong and the medic needs help, the Soldiers will be able to help,” he said.
For some Soldiers, the EFR class was their first glimpse of field medical training. “I had actually never really done an actual first aid class. I wasn’t able to do one in basic and I learned a lot, actually getting hands-on training like we did was really good,” said Spc. Laren Learned, HHC, 1st BCT. The course challenged the Soldiers both physically and mentally while each Soldier had to perform in a simulated enemy contact scenario with one or more wounded Soldiers. They had to apply the knowledge learned to keep the casualty alive. At the end of the course, Bastogne Soldiers took a 50 question test covering information taught throughout EFR. “It’s an intense course, it taught everybody what they needed to know to help someone in the field when a medic is not around,” said Spc. Shawn Miller, FSC, 1st Battalion, 327th Infantry Regiment. With many rounds of the EFR course to come, Soldiers of the 1st Brigade Combat Team will be well prepared for their next deployment. Hunt said, that he thinks EFR will be extremely effective in combat. “I think we will save a lot more lives,” he said.
DoD to standardize preflight screening by Sgt. 1st Class Michael Carden American Forces Press Service
WASHINGTON – Minor changes are scheduled to take place within the Defense Department’s travel reservation system later this summer to support the Transportation Security Administration’s new pre-flight screening program, a Defense Department official said June 10. Under the current format, when travelers arrange flight, hotel and rental car reservations online at the Defense Travel System Web site, the only personal information the site processes through to the vendors is the traveler’s first name, last name and middle initial. Now, after the system and Web site modifications take effect, the traveler’s date of birth and gender will be included to comply with the TSA’s Secure Flight Program, said Pam Mitchell, director of the Defense Travel Management Office. Defense travelers will be prompted by a pop-up screen from the DTS Web site to add the information, as well as to enter their name as it appears on their government-issued identification card. The change will be minimally inconvenient to the traveler, as the information will be entered only once then saved to their profile, Mitchell said. The program is an outcome of the 9/11 Commission, and it basically streamlines the process of identifying potential passengers deemed a match on the FBI-generated watch list screened by the airlines, said Paul Leyh, the program’s director. Before the program officially began last month, the various airlines each had their own screening processes, which was inconsistent and inconvenient for many travelers, Leyh said. It’s not uncommon
for a passenger’s information to be identified as a match on one airline’s list but cleared through another’s, he added. “From carrier to carrier, because the process is different, it’s inconsistent across all carriers,” he said. “Throughout the world there are hundreds of carriers, and it could be kind of a crap shoot for people. But with Secure Flight, it’s going to be the same process for that person regardless of the carrier.” With the Secure Flight Program, the TSA eventually will become the sole prescreening agency for all airline passengers. The program officially started in May with several domestic airlines, but within 18 months, every airline international and domestic - that travels within, to, from and over the United States will be phased into the program, he said. This will improve the safety of more than 2.5 million people, Leyh added. Also, travelers who’ve been misidentified as a close-enough match on the watch list can apply for a redress number through TSA to prevent future inconveniences. If cleared, the redress number also will be added to their profile in DTS. “With nearly every commercial airline participating, watch list matching is going to be more effective, which is going to allow us to clear more people and focus on those potential travelers that are considered as a close match,” he said. The program will virtually go unnoticed by the passengers, officials said, as no changes to the airline check-in or security checkpoint procedures are involved. Once defense travelers make the initial modifications to their profile on the DTS Web site, officials added, the program’s changes will not affect them unless their information matches the watch list.

middle east NEWS operations: PRT Panjshir, Afghan leaders freedom celebrate girls’ school opening
Forces conduct operations in Khost
by Capt. Stacie N. Shafran PRT Panjshir
BAGRAM AIR FIELD, Afghanistan – Haish Saidqi Girls’ School in Panjshir province resounded with laughter of children for the first time, June 23. As the little girls milled about their newly constructed eightclassroom school in Rokha District, their faces beamed with excitement as teachers scrawled the Dari alphabet across freshly blackened chalkboards. The Panjshir Provincial Reconstruction Team demonstrated its commitment to education by joining Haji Bahlol, Panjshir’s governor, Zulami Saheen, the province’s director of education, and other distinguished guests to celebrate the school’s grand opening. Bahlol dedicated the ceremony in honor of Air Force Lt. Col. Mark Stratton, the PRT’s commander who was killed May 26 when a suicide bomber detonated an IED. The PRT-funded school, which cost $145,000, has been under construction since last July. Residents of Rokha and the nearby villages of Shast, Pai Chinar and Molakhel formally petitioned for the school. Over the course of the academic year, more than 500 primary-school age girls will attend class here, many going to school for the first time. Although Haish Saidqi is designated as a girls’ school, a small number of boys will attend as
KABUL, Afghanistan – Afghan and Coalition Forces conducted two operations in the Musa Khel District of Khost Province Saturday, targeting a key commander in one operation and searching a compound in another. Coalition Forces used precision air strikes in a remote area of the district, targeting a key Haqqani commander responsible for planning militant attacks against Coalition Forces. Intelligence sources put him in this mountainous district, approximately 45 kilometers northwest of the city of Khost. Coalition Forces observed and identified suspected militants gathering there and called for the air strikes. A patrol conducted an assessment of the area and confirmed there were no non-combatant casualties. The patrol recovered multiple weapons, including; small arms, heavy machine guns, rocket-propelled grenades; radios and other military equipment. The items were destroyed in place. In a separate engagement, Afghan and Coalition Forces patrolled a compound near the village of Wech Paray, about 40 kilometers northwest of the city of Khost. The forces searched the area without incident and detained six suspected militants.

For many first graders at the newly opened eight-classroom Haish Saidqi Girls’ School, this is their first time to receive formal education. According to the Afghan Ministry of Education, there are 1.7 million girls studying in primary schools across the country.
well. In this area of Panjshir, boys and girls can attend class together until third grade. After that, classrooms must be separated by gender. “This school means a lot to the future of these girls,” said Saheen, through an interpreter. “They used to study in destroyed buildings and temporary facilities. Now they have things like good desks and blackboards.” According to the Afghan Ministry of Education, there are 1.7 million girls studying in primary schools across the country. Only 30 percent of girls reach the fifth grade, compared to 56 percent
for boys. Air Force 1st Lt. Dustin Koslowsky, a PRT engineer, has spent the past nine months overseeing the Afghan contractor and construction workers building the school. “When I initially volunteered for this assignment I was looking forward to my first opportunity to manage construction; to see this project completed and put into use so quickly is exciting and satisfying. The contractor has worked hard and I am proud to have been a part of this project.” Following the ceremony, the PRT signed responsibility for
the school over to the director of education. The PRT is facilitating 12 education projects worth $2.8 million, including nine schools, two dormitories and one multi-purpose building which will be used as a library and laboratory. Under the Taliban regime, all of Afghanistan’s schools were religious and girls were banned from attending. The revival of Afghanistan’s education system, especially the return of girls to schools, is considered to be one of the biggest accomplishments of the Afghan government since 2001.
US Forces transfer combat outpost to IA DIYALA, Iraq – Combat Outpost Mullalah in Diyala province was transferred from U.S. Forces to the 5th Iraqi Army Division June 25, signifying the progress which has been made in recent months and years in the region’s battle against terrorists and insurgents. The COP, originally established in 2005, had been the home of Soldiers with the 2nd Battalion, 8th Field Artillery Regiment, 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division, since Sept. 2008. A major staging area for Soldiers with 2-8 FA, the outpost will continue to facilitate Coalition Forces when teaming with their Iraqi counterparts, but it will be Coalition Forces, not the Iraqis, who will be visitors while staging in Mullalah. Closing out the ceremony, Iraqi Lt. Col. Amur, 4-5 IA commander, thanked the coalition for their support and for establishing security in the region. He then promised to the audience that his battalion would continue to provide the security needed for the people of the area.

in the program including deployments supporting the Combined Joint Special Operations Task Force in Afghanistan. Markham is new to the program, â€œWe just had to work as a team. Mara really knows her stuff and I have learned more from [Mara] than she will ever learn from me.â€? Markham and Mara will continue daily training as theyâ€™ve been doing, but their certification will allow them to undertake important police work. Military working dogs are considered Soldiers, and in an Army tradition, they hold a rank which is one step above their handlers. Sergeant Shawn Surber and Staff Sgt. Grek, a labrador retriever who specializes in long distance explosive searches, were re-certified after a 12-month deployment. â€œSpending an entire year together really helps when the certification process

comes because this is all about being a strong cohesive team,â€? Surber said. Grek goes without hesitation to an odor and sits down to indicate he has made a find. When the explosive is buried, Grek will lie down and place his nose right on the find, Surber said. Like all the Military Working Dog handlers at Fort Campbell, Surber gives all credit to the dog. â€œGrek had numerous IED finds down range and Iâ€™m sure a lot of the guys we worked with felt much safer moving with Grekâ€™s nose in
the led,â€? Surber said. The Fort Campbell military working dogs performed well in the annual evaluation. As teams are certified, they join a deployment rotation schedule and perform duties both stateside and overseas. Currently, seven teams from Fort Campbell are deployed and have saved lives while performing their mission. â€œSeventeen dogs working for one year had 1,000 finds, which include caches, weapons and improvised explosive devices,â€? Warren noted. In fact, â€œThe military working dog is the most requested asset we have in the Army for mitigating the largest threat to us, IEDs,â€? he said. The military, as well as the civilian sector, continue to research new ways to detect explosives, but experts are still depending on a dogâ€™s nose. â€œIâ€™ll put my dogs up against any electronic detection device any day,â€? Warren said. â€œDogs get awards just like we do. As a handler, any success we have is solely because of that dog.â€?
Zuercher compared it to driving a Chevrolet Impala or a Chevrolet Malibu â€“ even though theyâ€™re both Chevrolets, theyâ€™re not the same vehicles. The MRAP Max-Pro isnâ€™t the same as the MRAP Cougar. Zuercher said the simulator would be opened for training immediately, with operators training the first week and units being phased in over the next few weeks. Priority order has not been set at publication time. â€œThis trainer isnâ€™t a mandate,â€? Zuercher said. â€œItâ€™s another aid for the commander to use to increase competency and capability in his Soldiers so that when they do go to theater and begin to operate the vehicles in live situations, they will have some experience to draw on, because the simulator can create conditions or situations that are similar to what theyâ€™re going to encounter in theater.â€?

at Fort Campbell. The others are expected to arrive over the next few months. â€œNow a days commanders want for their Soldiers to train either on the exact piece of equipment theyâ€™re going to be using in theatre or on a replica or simulator that exactly duplicates the appearance, the size, weight, controls and conditions of the equipment theyâ€™re going to be using,â€? Zuercher said. â€œSo itâ€™s important to have all available MRAP versions to be exercised in this trainer, because depending on the area where the unit is going, theyâ€™re going to have one or more different versions of the MRAP.â€?

The 551st Military Police Company, 716th Military Police Battalion, continues its intensive training for war. The Soldiers used last week to sharpen skills in small unit tactics and strengthen the bonds Soldiers need to prepare for combat. The training focus for the week was to keep Soldiers working together through multiple long days of physically and mentally strenuous training. The week started with intense training on how to enter and clear a building. The teams began training in rooms drawn on the ground with duct tape and spray paint allowing every detail to be critiqued. â€œI felt confident in my team from the start,â€? said Spc. Richard Burlingame, 551st MP Co. â€œBut now I know what we are capable of. This has been a good exercise for me and my team.â€? Eventually the Soldiers are confident enough to enter and clear a building while firing live ammunition at simulated targets, using various verbal and visual commands to move from room to room. Just one day after the completion of the live fire exercise the Hooligans were back at it again. Known as the â€œHooligan Challenge,â€? the Soldiers of the 551st were preparing for war. Comprised of nine events, the challenge spans over seven miles, testing Soldiersâ€™ military knowledge and physical endurance. â€œThis is a good chance for leaders at all levels to assess their Soldiersâ€™ abilities, and see if they can apply the knowledge they have in a stressful environment,â€? said Capt. Robert Eyman, commander, 551st Military Police Company. In full combat gear, the teams started the event at first light. The teams faced many challenges ranging from the Air Assault Obstacle Course to calling

Last year, the Armyâ€™s only Independence Day weekend fatality occurred when a Soldier died after the car he was a passenger in crashed into a tree. During the 2007 July Fourth holiday weekend, two Soldiers were killed in motorcycle accidents. When traveling this holiday weekend, USACR/Safety Center officials urge all Soldiers to start their road trip by filling out their TRiPS reports and discussing their plans with a supervisor. Further, motorists and motorcyclists should have their vehicles and motorcycles checked by a qualified technician to ensure oil, tires, batteries and fluids are all full and in good working order.

Antonio Soto, squad leader and leader of the Hooligan Challenge winning team. â€œThey worked hard training for this and it showed today. Iâ€™m impressed.â€? The winning team received the Army Achievement Medal, followed by Certificates of Achievement for second and third place teams. The 551st ended their week strong by bringing the company and its families together for an organizational day. â€œSoldiers worked hard for the past few weeks,â€? said 1st Sgt.

While on the road, vehicle drivers must ensure all occupants are buckled up, with children in the back seat; obey speed limits and all roadway signs; take frequent breaks â€“ at least every two hours â€“ and avoid driving when tired; and avoid driving in the â€œNo Zoneâ€? around trucks â€“ if you cannot see the truck driver in the truckâ€™s mirror, the truck driver cannot see you. And remember, if you are planning on drinking alcohol, drink responsibly and always designate a sober driver.

tion is the most common heat injury. A person suffering from heat exhaustion still sweats but experiences extreme weakness or fatigue, nausea or headache. Warning signs may include heavy sweating, unsteady walk, dizziness, giddiness, rapid pulse and shortness of breath. With more Americans lighting their grills than ever before, it is important to remember that a fun barbecue is a safe barbecue. Common sense and planning will help prevent barbecue-related injuries. Remember to always read the ownerâ€™s manual before grilling for the first time and only grill outside in well-ventilated areas. When playing chef, always use long-handled utensils, wear safe clothing that does not hang into the grill and keep the fire under control. Never leave a grill unattended once lit. Whether lighting fireworks, traveling, grilling or spending the day in the sun, the USACR/Safety Center stands ready to assist Army civilians, Soldiers and their family members properly prepare for safe summer activities.

716th MP Battalion Release Last week four teams of specialized Soldiers went through a certification process to ensure their expert skills are sharp and dependable. The fact that half of each team was a dog didn’t diminish their importance. Military working dogs provide essential services while performing duties, which include locating hidden explosives and aiding their handlers in police patrols. “There is not a single working dog team assigned to the 163rd Military Police Detachment that I wouldn’t trust the safety and protection of the Fort Campbell community to,” said Sgt 1st Class Ron Warren, Fort Campbell kennel master. “The certification process, a weeklong event required annually, is designed to test the abilities and profi-

ciency of each team – one dog and one handler,” Warren said. The teams were tested on their expertise in locating explosives or drugs – valuable talents in combat zones as well as in daily police work. The test included 20 aids, or challenges, and the teams had to demonstrate extreme accuracy for detecting bombs and drugs. Additionally, patrol teams had to exhibit skill during a variety of different scenarios reflecting real
life situations ensuring they understand the patrol aspect and are capable of performing their missions. “It’s a stressful time for each team,” Warren said. Sergeant Randi Markham of the 163rd MP detachment and her partner, Mara, passed their certification – the first for the recently partnered team. Staff Sgt. Mara is a seasoned veteran

This weekend, thousands of members of the Army family will gather around picnic tables, splash in local lakes and sprawl out on blankets under a sky full of fireworks as they relax and celebrate the 233rd birthday of the great nation they call home. As the Army’s Soldiers, civilians and family members pause to remember the great courage of the country’s founding fathers and the bravery of those who still protect the nation’s freedom, U.S. Army Combat Readiness/Safety Center Commander, Brig. Gen. William T. Wolf said safety must remain a top priority in every Independence Day celebration. “Earlier this summer, the Army was able to log our first fatality-and serious accident-free Memorial Day weekend in more than 20 years and we want the July Fourth weekend to be equally safe for our entire band of brothers and sisters.” Wolf said. “Standing together and renewing our commitment to making safety a top priority in everything we do will help us achieve this goal.” Fourth of July celebrations are full of potential dangers as well as many opportunities to practice the five steps of Composite Risk Management in order to ensure a safe and fun holiday weekend. Whether firing up the grill for an afternoon picnic or lighting a sparkler, Wolf said identifying, managing and eliminating risk must be at the heart of every activity. “Eliminating risk does not mean eliminating fun,”

MRAP simulator prepares Soldiers for theater by Heather Huber Courier staff
As the traditional Army Humvee gets phased out, drivers will need to be trained on the new Mine Resistant Ambush Protection Vehicle, also known as the MRAP. Unfortunately, there aren’t enough real MRAPs at Fort Campbell yet on which to train. That’s why Fort Campbell acquired the MRAP Common Driver Training simulator. Before, there was no way to train Soldiers assigned to areas where MRAPs were the main vehicle prior to arriving in theater, said Steve Zuercher, training support officer. “This trainer enables the commander to provide his Soldiers access to a platform that simulates exactly the characteristics of the vehicles they’re going to operate in theater,” Zuercher said. The MRAP CDT is a fullmotion simulator that trains
Soldiers on inherently dangerous tasks in a safe, controlled environment and measures their performance against established standards. The CDT has 84 preprogrammed scenarios to help commanders build a curriculum for their Soldiers, specifically for their respective training needs, as well as a program to build new scenarios from scratch. “There is a software program called Scenario Tool Box, where [commanders] can actually pull up a blank screen and draw your route out and insert certain things that are happening, or that they want to happen,” said Phil Fenton, Longbow crew trainer and senior engineer. “If you set the scenario up to where he’s supposed to follow a lead vehicle and he should maintain 25 meters distance behind those people, you can set it up to where if he falls behind, a vehicle will come out of nowhere and detonate.” Designers can also set up

trigger events such as crowds, explosions and cars, Fenton said. The program allows designers to take control of any
scenario from the very basic, such as debris in the road and weather, to the very advanced and complicated, such as set-
ting IEDs along the route. The CDT also has a separate after action review station so that one Soldier can review his
performance while the next is using the trainer. The system records a Soldier’s progress via CAC card, so they only need to swipe their card and the simulator will load up to the scenario they’re up to. “The software that’s involved starts at a beginner level,” Fenton said. “Basically you drive around a track park and it makes you familiar with your turn signals and everything, just like when you first start driving a car. And then it advances all the way up to tactical situations, such as going through a town and having to search for IEDs.” There are six versions of MRAPs in use in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the MRAP CDT has different programs for each version depending on which dashboard is in the pod. At the moment though, Fort Campbell only has one version for the simulator – the Max-Pro, the same version as the MRAPs

Soldiers volunteer for product testing by Fred W. Baker III
American Forces Press Service
NATICK, Mass. â€“ Far away from the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan, a relatively small group of Soldiers subject themselves regularly to searing heat, freezing cold, extreme altitudes and exhausting exercise. These Soldiers are new to the Army, recruited as they finish their initial advanced training and sent to a small military post in Massachusetts. And while they have yet to deploy, or even report to their first duty station, already they are contributing to the fight. Part of the human research volunteer program at the U.S. Armyâ€™s Research Institute of Environmental Medicine in Natick, Mass., Soldiers volunteer for 90 days to participate in scientific studies that impact nearly everything todayâ€™s Soldiers eat, wear and use. The institute is the Defense Departmentâ€™s lead research lab for operational medicine. Its focus is not on developing rations, clothes and gear, but instead on the physiological effects those items have on service members. The institute sits on the only active-duty Army post within the New England states and is far removed from the larger installations where most troops spend their time training for and deploying to combat. Most Soldiers have no idea of the extent of research conducted at the lab, and many are eager to participate to better outfit their brothers and sisters in arms, said Army Sgt. Glenn Brunson, a mental health specialist who manages the Soldier volunteer program. â€œI always thought a lot of this gear and equipment that weâ€™re wearing came from just one guy in a room clicking on a button making all the arbitrary decisions,â€? he said. The lab got its start shortly after World War II when Army officials realized Soldiers would continue to be deployed worldwide and wanted a research facility that could study the environmental and operational impacts on the health and performance of troops in a variety of climates and conditions. Since 1954, about 3,700 Soldiers have participated in studies there. They carry new rucksacks to evaluate the impacts on their bodies. They subject themselves to heat, cold and fatigue, running countless hours on treadmills and pedaling miles and miles on stationary bikes to assess various factors of performance. The Soldiers willingly spend days in altitude chambers that simulate the conditions of the worldâ€™s highest peaks. They suffer through mountain sickness to answer the scientific questions of how, when and why. The volunteers are injected with supplements, some overfed, and others underfed â€“ all in the name of science to help improve uniforms, medicine, rations and training conditions, and to help commanders better prepare, and take care of, their troops on the battlefield. They are typically subjected to multiple stressors at the same time for a single study. For example, they are required to march on a treadmill while in an environment that simulates high altitude and low temperature. Or they may be submersed in cold water, tasked with riding a stationary bike, and then removed and asked to perform additional critical thinking or physical tasks. â€œWe try to mimic the situation that theyâ€™re in,â€? Edward Zambraski, chief of the instituteâ€™s military performance,
said of Soldiers in the field. â€œIf they have to perform in the heat and itâ€™s at altitude, then we will mimic that situation and we will combine those two things. â€œWeâ€™re doing research that has to apply to a very unique situation in theater,â€? added Zambraski, who holds a doctorate degree in exercise physiology. â€œAnd so we do everything we can to control the variables, but to make those variables look realistic.â€? All volunteers are briefed on the studies, the risks, and medically cleared before they are allowed to participate. The scientists are required to divulge all aspects of the study, and there are multiple levels of medical scrutiny to ensure the volunteers are kept safe, lab officials said. Brunson helps manage the volunteer program, but also volunteers for some studies because he sees the overall benefit, he said. â€œItâ€™s great to feel like Iâ€™m contributing to big Army,â€? Brunson said. â€œI came here and Iâ€™m kind of out of the fight. Iâ€™m kind of sitting behind a desk most of the time. But with this, I actually get a chance to be involved in the studies and â€Ś see exactly whatâ€™s going on and be a part of it.â€? About 30 volunteers participate at the lab at any given time. In the 90 days they are there, they generally participate in three or four studies, depending on the length and intensity of each. Volunteers can withdraw from the program at any time, and about 20 percent choose to drop out, Brunson said. Brunson recently volunteered for a study that researches the effects of physical activity on re-warming Soldiersâ€™ hands. In 5-degree temperatures and 6-mile-per-hour winds, Brunson took off his gloves for about 20 minutes at a time to perform manual dexterity tests. Then, he did stepping exercises to measure the impact on the rate in which his fingers warmed. His fingers hurt, then would go numb, and then would hurt again, Brunson said. What he found out, personally, was that he had slow-warming fingertips, he said. The average volunteerâ€™s fingers would warm to an outside temperature of 20 degrees within eight minutes of fast stepping. At 13 minutes, Brunsonâ€™s were up only to 17 degrees. The scientists thankfully stopped his efforts there, he said. Brunson also has participated in a head-sweating study for a new Marine combat helmet design, and he plans to volunteer for more. â€œIt feels great because a lot of times theyâ€™re taking my feedback and thatâ€™s contributing to this process,â€? Brunson said. â€œSo itâ€™s a rewarding experience to feel that Iâ€™m actually contributing to the Army as a whole.â€? Most volunteers enjoy the experience, Brunson said, despite the discomforts of some of the tests. They often befriend the scientists and technicians conducting the studies. But, he admits, itâ€™s not for everybody. â€œYouâ€™ve got to have a lot of fortitude and a desire to really push yourself â€Ś to actually know that what youâ€™re doing is going to benefit the whole Army,â€? Brunson said. Army Col. Keith Hiatt, the head of medical support for the institute, said the volunteers are critical to the labâ€™s efforts. â€œThe lab is only so good. You actually need human subjects to help you,â€? Hiatt said.

Military has met SOFA deadline by Samantha L. Quigley American Forces Press Service
WASHINGTON – The U.S. military will have no issues complying with the U.S.-Iraq Status of Forces Agreement, which requires all U.S. troops to withdraw from Iraqi cities by June 30, the commander of Multinational Force Iraq said Sunday. “We’ve already met the deadline. We’ve already moved out of the cities,” Gen. Raymond T. Odierno said from Baghdad during his appearance on Fox News Sunday. “We’ve been doing it slowly over the last eight months and the final units have moved out of the cities over the last several weeks.” The general also appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union.” With U.S. troops out of Iraq’s cities, the burden for securing them falls to the Iraqi security forces. Those forces are up to the challenge, Odierno said. “We’ve seen incredible increases in their capacity and capability,” he said. “They have proven it in combat operations. They have proven their flexibility [and] adaptability. “I am much more confident than I have ever been in the Iraq security forces,” he added. Though the Iraqis will be responsible for maintaining security and stability in Iraq, the 131,000 U.S. troops remaining in country won’t be out of a job. They’ll continue to train, advise and help enable the Iraqi forces. In addition, they’ll also continue to conduct significant operations outside the cities, Odierno said. Any operations conducted, however, will be done with Iraqi approval. “When we signed the security agreement, we agreed to abide by Iraqi sovereignty,” he said. “Everything we do today, and have been doing since the first of January, is transparent to the Iraqi government … but that does not limit our flexibility.” Some are concerned about recent high-profile attacks targeting civilians near Nasiriyah, Baghdad and Kirkuk in the last
week. The attacks are attributable to extremist elements trying to attract attention, Odierno said. “We have not seen increased violence across the country,” he said. “These high-profile attacks … have brought the ire of Iraqi civilians against these terrorist groups. I believe it’ll make it much more difficult for them to continue to operate in side of Iraq over the long term.” In fact, he added, in May and the first three weeks of June, Iraq had the lowest level of incidents on record. Despite all the improvements made in local, provincial and federal governance, there are still many political issues that need to be addressed. Arab-Kurd, intraShiia and Sunni-Shiia tensions are all being worked on, Odierno said. He hopes these issues, which could cause some instability, will be solved through politics and diplomacy, not violence. As Iraq moves toward national elections in January, there was some question about the effect of the recent Iranian election and its aftermath on its neighbor.
Odierno said he thinks the situation in Iran will give Iraq, which just held what he called legitimate and credible provincial elections, more confidence in its government. “They’re going to go through credible and legitimate elections here for their national leaders in January,” he said. “They will oversee those elections and they will have UN and international observers that will validate those elections. I think that will also encourage them to continue to move toward democracy.” With everything seemingly moving in the right direction in Iraq, Odierno is confident that the Iraqi security forces are ready to step up and take responsibility for their country’s security and stability. “I think this is the right time for us to turn responsibility over to the Iraqis,” he said. He added the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq will continue slowly and deliberately throughout this year, though enough forces will remain to ensure the success of the January elections.

Brac will cause hardships, Expanded HAP could help by Rob McIlvaine FMWRC
While Base Realignment and Closure 2005 is causing upheaval for many families, help is available through the Department of Defense National Relocation Program, the Homeowners Assistance Program, and soon, the Expanded HAP, thanks to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Besides standard Permanent Change of Station entitlements, the Department of Defense National Relocation Program provides relocation services, including a guaranteed home buyout process, to eligible DoD civilian employees so they can sell their homes at the prior duty station and locate housing at the new duty station. Its primary benefit, known as Guaranteed Home Sale, offers an optional alternative to the PCS reimbursement process. It also offers other valuable services such as the Home Marketing Incentive Payment, a financial incentive bonus payment that may be authorized for employees who successfully market their homes. Since its inception in 1987, the relocation program has helped thousands of employees sell their homes through the Guaranteed Homesale Program, rent their homes through the Property Management Program, and purchase or rent in a new town through Destination Services. The complete DoD National Relocation Program Handbook, revised December 2008, explains in detail the services available and the process required to obtain these services. According to David Gage, SCRP, chief, National Relocation Program Office U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for the Baltimore District, the traditional HAP program provides benefits for transferring Soldiers and civilian employees only when an economic impact study determines that the depreciation of home values is specifically linked to the closure of a nearby military installation. â€œIn that case,â€? Gage said, â€œHAP guarantees all or a portion of the difference between the price a property sells for and the esti-
mated value of the property prior to the base closure announcement.â€? Expanded HAP will help even more. On May 14, Vice President Joe Biden announced DoDâ€™s plan to add $555 million in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to expand the HAP to help offset the effects of the countryâ€™s struggling housing market. â€œThe recently passed economic stimulus program that expanded the HAP eligibility guidelines to provide some financial benefits for BRACaffected service members and civilian employees who sell their homes at prices less than their purchase price or less than the mortgage balance owed, without requiring any economic impact study,â€? Gage said. This temporary expansion, which includes the payment of closing costs to transferring service members and civilian employees affected by BRAC 2005, was possible through the efforts of the Army Family Action Plan committee members who played a positive role in reviving this PCS issue, and President Obama, who signed ARRA. The ARRA is an unprecedented effort to jumpstart the economy and create or save millions of jobs. Ralph Nordenhold and his wife, Sandra, DoD civilians who both work at Family and MWR Command in Alexandria, VA, recently sold their home through a private buyer after listing with DNRP. â€œI had a realtor prior to working with DNRP,â€? Nordenhold said. â€œAfter signing up with DNRP, I had a buyer within three days, at which point DNRP bought the home and began getting the appraisals, home inspections and title search completed.â€? The Nordenholds bought their home in Springfield, Va., in 1999 when, according to Ralph, the housing market was even worse than now. â€œBut up until this market, the value of our home rose, considerably, so I feel we got a good price. And thanks to the Home Marketing Incentive Program, because I sold my home before selling to DNRP (prior to 60 days
after listing with DNRP), I will get a bonus,â€? Nordenhold said. Over the past few years, the Nordenholds improved their home by laying hard wood floors in the living and dining rooms, installing new stairs from the first to the second floor, and building a patio in the back with brick and slate. â€œWeâ€™ve put a lot of work into this house which helped in marketing,â€? Nordenhold said. Correcting any structural problems after listing with DNRP is a requirement. After selling, more benefits may apply. â€œWhen the implementing guidance [from DoD] is issued, employees who are eligible for HAP benefits who have already sold their homes can still file for HAP benefits after the fact,â€? Gage said. Employees who are or will be moving due to BRAC can utilize the DNRP for the home sale at current market value, and file for HAP benefits to provide any additional benefit (e.g., losson-sale or negative equity payments) for which they may be entitled. The DNRP Web site, www. nab.usace.army.mil/dnrp.htm, includes info and a link to the HAP webpage. The guidelines for eligibility for expanded HAP benefits are already established, and can be found at the HAP Web site: http://hap.usace.army.mil/ However, the implementing guidance for the Expanded HAP wonâ€™t reach the field until the end of July, perhaps August, according to Jeanne Hodge, public affairs officer with USACE, Savannah District. â€œThe Corpsâ€™ role is execution of the program, once implementing guidance from the Office of the Secretary of Defense is received. The rules, policy, guidance are all being developed at the OSD level,â€? Hodge said. Present tax laws require that ARRA expanded HAP applicants will be taxed on all benefits above their homesâ€™ current fair market value as part of their gross income. Applicants must consider this tax liability as they evaluate their best courses of action.

Travel card now for PCS expenses by Rob McIlvaine FMWRC
â€œEffective June 10, 2009, the individually billed travel charge card (GTCC) can be used for relocation expenses,â€? said John Argodale, deputy assistant Secretary of the Army, Financial Operations. Charges for transportation, lodging, meals, Temporary Quarters Subsistence Expense, and house-hunting approved expenses are authorized. Participants, whose account is open and current at time of registration at their organizationâ€™s Agency Program Coordinator, can obtain travel advances
using their GTCC in the form of ATM, cash and manual cash disbursements. In addition, the credit limit can be increased and cardholders can enjoy a longer bill-pay period. The new temporary credit limit will activate on the PCS status start date and return to the assigned credit limit on the PCS end date. The program is expected to increase the rebates to the government and reduce travelersâ€™ dependency on their personal funds. The GTCC balance must be paid by the PCS end date, plus 30 days. Excluded are accession- and separation-types of PCS.

Fort Campbell Courier - Thursday, July 2, 2009 - 3A
Continued from Page 1A However, Soldiers off post can still use fireworks if following their state’s laws. If you are planning to buy fireworks in Tennessee or Kentucky and fly them to your home state, think again. It is a violation of federal aviation law to transport any fireworks device on an airplane. Ralph Apel, president of the National Council on Fireworks Safety, said fireworks safety simply comes down to one important tool – common sense. “If consumers would use common sense and read all label warnings and performance descriptions on the fireworks they purchase, they would know what to expect when they light them,” he said. There are precautions to be aware of when setting off personal fireworks. Children should never handle fireworks and fireworks should never be used while consuming alcohol. First, buy fireworks only from reliable, licensed fireworks dealers. Licensed and reliable dealers will only
Continued from Page 1A A resident of the Mandozai District, Gharanai, told of his brother, a journalist at a radio station in Khost City, who was targeted by insurgents and killed with an IED. “We are all being affected by the [insurgent] activities, as I lost my brother. I do not know why they must kill my brother. The IEDs kill or injure too many innocent people,” he said. Every local Afghan has a story to tell, just like Gharanai’s, said Karimi, and through Vehicle Bourne IEDs many people share the same story from a single event. This spring, two separate VBIEDs killed 14 Afghans and injured 61, permanently changing all of their lives in a split second. The attacks create intense fear that runs rampant through the villages. Residents who cannot send their families to a safer place have taken refuge in their own houses, keeping their children home from school and travelling as little as possible, said Dr. Rasool Habibi, a local

surgeon and scholar who works at the Salerno Hospital and teaches at Khost University. “It doesn’t matter who; children, teachers, doctors. They kill everyone. Everybody is scared,” Habibi said. “I see my family once a week because from here to there, there is no security, and there is great possibility of assassination.” The terror that has become prominent in the daily lives of Afghans has evolved into revulsion, as well as a foundation in an adamant quest for answers and solutions. “What is the reason to kill us? For how long will you do this? Why?” demanded Habibi of the insurgents. Howard offered his view in consideration of questions of this nature. “This is an insurgency, so it’s a very weak military organization that has decided to take on a very strong military organization. They can’t do that going nose to nose, so they have to use insurgent tactics. One tactic is intimidation,” he said. “We hope to show the population that the Afghanistan Government is the way of the future. They will provide security. They

will provide elected leadership. They will provide roads, hospitals and education. The Taliban can’t do any of that, so they have to control the population in another way, through intimidation.” While the insurgents attempt to send a message of intimidation to the populace, Howard illustrated how their ultimate motive goes beyond that message. “An insurgent beats a counterinsurgent by fighting the war to a stalemate. They make it last 15 years,” he explained. “That’s the insurgent’s strategy. They want to take over Afghanistan, and they want to take over by making us quit. I don’t think they are just making a statement, they actually want political power.” The Afghanistan National Security Forces are determined to protect their country from the insurgents rising to power. They work diligently to inform the population of preventative measures, as well as providing avenues to report enemy activity anonymously. They react quickly to IED attacks and Howard spoke of an example that is a reflection of the consis-

soldiers to chase after the bad guys. They got them.” The ANSF and CF encourage the locals to evaluate the activities of both the insurgents and their government, to arrive at an educated, self-deduced conclusion in order to gather the courage to unite and defend their families, communities and country. “Look around and see,” Howard offered. “Every time there is a fight between your Army and the Taliban, who wins and who loses? How many schools and roads and mosques have been built by the Army, and then compare that to the Taliban.” More and more villages are banding together and taking a stand, turning the insurgents’ tactics of intimidation into newfound strength and determination. “The [insurgents] try to control our country. They want to impose their will on us. They want us to live under their harsh rules, but we do not want that to happen,” said Gharanai. “Our village will be safe, because we are uniting and will no longer let somebody come to do destructive activities in our village.”

sure to light fireworks on a hard surface. Grass is generally not suitable for any item intended to be used in an upright position. If lighting fireworks on grass, lay down a flat wooden board for a shooting surface.
In addition, make sure the area is open and clear of buildings, vehicles, dry leaves and plants. A minimum clearance radius of 30 feet for fountains and other ground based items and 100 yards for any aerial product is recommended. Never use fireworks indoors. Never shoot fireworks in metal or glass containers. Keeping yourself clear of the firework is always important. Never put your head or any part of your body over the top of any fireworks product. Never look into a tube to check on the firework item. Never hold a lighted firework item in your hand. Keep as far from the firework item as possible when lighting. While “grand finales” are full of fireworks, it is recommended that consumers only light one firework at a time to prevent misuse, injury and fire. If a firework is a “dud” or misfires, never try to relight it. If a firework item fails to ignite, let it stand for at least five minutes, then immerse it in water or sand. Always have a water source or fire extinguisher available in case a firework ignites a fire or misfires. Always store fireworks in a cool, dry place and dispose of fireworks properly.

OUTLOOK command message
Focus on safety during holiday Maj. Gen. Jeffrey Schloesser, 101st Abn. Div. Commander Independence Day is a time to celebrate our nation’s history and the freedoms we have as citizens of the United States of America. It is also a time to remember those who have served honorably in the defense of these freedoms and liberties that we hold so dear. Independence Day is also traditionally a time of gatherings
and activities shared with family and friends. Many of us will take part in activities that have inherent risks, but with proper planning and the following of basic safety rules, can be accomplished safely. The consumption of alcohol in conjunction with these activities is often an accident waiting to happen. The use of motor vehicles, motorcycles, ATVs, boats and watercraft after consuming alcoholic beverages is extremely dangerous and is not to be done under any circumstances. Remember to use all personal protection equipment to include seat belts, follow all rules and regulations and drive defensively.
For those of you that plan to travel this weekend, ensure you have completed a travel plan and risk assessment, and provided it to your appropriate leadership. When participating in high risk activities such as rock climbing; shooting of firearms; scuba diving and the use of fireworks; use common sense and safe practices. Don’t exceed your competence level or succumb to peer pressure. Stay within your comfort zone. Always use the buddy system and take care of your buddy. Never take unnecessary risks. Engaged leadership is the key to a safe and successful holiday weekend. Leaders must know
what activities their Soldier’s have planned and ensure that proper risk reduction steps are in place when appropriate. Leaders also need to identify high risk Soldiers and take actions as needed to guarantee that these individual’s have a safe and happy holiday. I personally challenge each and every one of you to take the time to “think safety” on this Independence Day weekend, and also ask that you remember those that cannot be with us as they serve this great nation around the world. Finally, I wish you, your families and friends a safe and happy holiday.
Celebrating our nation’s freedom Freedom is cherished the most by those who defend it.
Lt. Gen. Robert Wilson, IMCOM Commanding General This Independence Day, we celebrate our nation’s 233rd birth-
day. For the men and women in uniform, July Fourth is more than the birthday of our nation, it is a day we celebrate freedom. As Americans, we continue to value our liberty with the same passion as those who signed the Declaration of Independence. Freedom is cherished the most by those who defend it. The proud
members of today’s great Army steadfastly pledge to defend the United States of America, just as those who fought to establish her. Our nation has prospered because of the unwavering service and commitment of Soldiers, civilians and family members. You on the Installation Management Team, around the globe,
contribute to the pursuit of liberty and justice. You do not take your duties lightly, because you know the price of freedom, and feel a sense of duty and service to country. Thank you for your dedicated and selfless service to our Army and country. May God bless you and may God bless America.

Americans pay tribute to “Old Glory” this 4th Staff Report July Fourth celebrations represent the past, present and future of America. Youngsters are taught at an early age the stripes of Old Glory stand for the original 13 colonies and the stars represent the 50 states. Today, Americans enjoy many freedoms, but four are great freedoms. They are freedom of the press, assembly, speech and religion. These freedoms are “WHY” the U.S. came to be. With regard to the future, eliminate any one of these four freedoms and our world would become darker and colder. In this world of potential cold and darkness, of rule by a few, stands the United States of America. Here the four freedoms do exist and are an example of warmth and light for all. How often is the Pledge of Allegiance recited without really being listened to or the meaning of the words understood? Think for a moment what those words mean and represent: I – Me, an individual, a committee of one… Pledge – Dedicate all of my worldly possessions; to give without self pity… Allegiance – My love and devotion… To the flag – Our standard - Old Glory - a symbol of freedom. Wherever she waves there is respect because your loyalty has given her a dignity that shouts “freedom is everybody’s job!” Of the United – United - we have all come together… States of America – States - individual communities have united into 50 great states. Fifty individual communities with pride and dignity and purpose; all divided with imaginary boundaries, yet united in a common purpose - love for country.
And to the republic – Republic, a state in which power is given to representatives chosen by the people to govern; and the government is the people; and it’s from the people to the leaders, not from the leaders to the people. For which it stands – This is what our flag stands for - our United States. One nation under God – Meaning so blessed by God… Indivisible – Incapable of being divided… With liberty – Which is freedom the right to live one’s own life without threats or fear of retaliation. And justice – The principle or qualities of dealing fairly with others. For all – For all boys, girls, men and women. It’s as much your country as it is mine. Of all thrills one can experience in this great country, the sight of Old Glory waving in the breeze can hardly be surpassed. The sight can stir a memory, evoke a tear or cause one to step more lively. This symbol of our country has been displayed and depicted in many ways, and it means different things to different people. Perhaps no one receives the flag more enthusiastically than those who serve the country in uniform, and especially those who have become prisoners of war. What must go through a POW’s mind when he first sees the flag waving and rippling in the breeze – a living, breathing, pulsating entity – when he first tastes his freedom after captivity? Our flag...it’s just a piece of cloth, that’s all it is. But when a little breeze comes along, it stirs and comes to life and flutters and snaps in the wind, all red and white and blue. Then you realize no other piece of cloth could be like it. It has your whole life wrapped in it. The meals you eat, the time you
spend with your family, the kind of things you learn at school or on the job and the wonderful thoughts you get in church. Those stars on it…they make you feel just as free as the stars in the wide, wide, deep night. And the stripes...they are the bars of blood to any dictator who would try to change this way of life. Just a piece of cloth, that’s all it is…until you put your soul into it and give it meaning. Then, it is the symbol of liberty and decency and fair dealing for everyone. It is just a piece of cloth…until we make it stand for everything we believe in and refuse to live without. Howard Schnauber, a WWII veteran, penned a patriotic recitation entitled “Old Glory” which paints a vivid, living picture of the American flag. I am the flag of the United States of America. My name is Old Glory. I fly atop of the world’s tallest buildings. I stand watch in America’s halls of justice. I fly majestically over great institutions of learning. I stand guard with the greatest military power in the world. Look up and see me. I stand for peace – honor – truth and justice. I stand for freedom. I am confident – I am proud. When I am flown with my fellow banners my head is a little higher, my colors a little truer. I bow to no one. I am recognized all over the world. I am praised – I am saluted – I am respected. I am revered – I am loved, and I am feared. I have fought every battle of every war for more than 200 years: Gettysburg, Shiloh, Appomattox, San Juan Hill, the trenches of France, the Argonne Forest, Anzio, Rome, the beaches of Normandy, the deserts of
Africa, the cane fields of the Philippines, the rice paddies and jungles of Guam, Okinawa, Japan, Korea, Guadalcanal, New Britain, PeleiIu, Vietnam and many more islands, and a score of places long forgotten by all but those who were with me. I was there. I led Soldiers – I followed them. I watched over them. They loved me. I was on a small hill on Iwo Jima. I was dirty, battle-worn and tired, but my Soldiers cheered me, and I was proud. I have been soiled, burned, torn and trampled on the streets of countries I have helped set free. It does not hurt, for I am Invincible. I have been soiled, burned, torn and trampled on the streets of my own country, and when it is by those with whom I have served in battle, it hurts. But I shall overcome – for I am strong. I have slipped the bonds of earth and stand watch over the uncharted new frontiers of space from my vantage point on the moon. I have been a silent witness to all of America’s finest hours. But my finest hour comes when I am torn Into strips to be used for bandages for my wounded comrades on the field of battle, when I fly at half mast to honor my soldiers, and when I lie in the trembling arms of a grieving mother at the graveside of her fallen son. I am proud. My name is Old Glory. Dear God, long may I wave. Editor’s note: The piece is a meshing of several patriotic writings and ceremonies from groups such as the Boy Scouts of American, Girl Scouts of America and various veterans’ organizations. This presentation is provided to call attention to what Independence Day means and has meant to so many people.
Be thankful for freedom to express our beliefs Installation Chaplain Office
Traveling is a passion of mine. There is a big world out there with lots to see and do. When I travel, I make it a point to visit churches, cathedrals, basilicas, monasteries and various other religious sites. They are always inspiring with long and interesting histories. A few years ago I visited Krakow, Poland; Riga, Latvia; and Saint Petersburg, Russia. Europe has very old and beautiful houses of worship. They take your breath away and inspire you to look up in awe. I was struck by the effects communism had, or didn’t have, on the faith of the people in Eastern Europe. Walking toward the Freedom Monument in Riga I passed a very large and beautiful Orthodox cathedral. One of the monks inside explained that this church had survived the Cold War by being used as a planetarium. It has been fully restored now and functions as a place of worship. A communist mentality that sought to eradicate religion and eventually have an atheis-

tic society had not burned religion out of the people. What a beautiful tribute to the faith of the people that endured in constancy despite occupation and hardship. One might ask if this period in history might have, in fact, strengthened the faith of the people. The same may be said of the Polish and their strong allegiance to their faith and their churches. Communist occupation seemed to strengthen the people’s faith, not erase or dull it. The people needed a compassionate God who loved them as they lived under the conditions they endured. Religion did not just placate the people either. It was, and still is, genuine, deeply rooted and very seriously taken. In Saint Petersburg, there exists a stunning cathedral called “The Church of the Saviour on Spilt Blood.” It was built in the place where Tsar Alexander was killed at the end of the 19th century. Although a museum now, it also survived the days of communism by being used as a place to store potatoes. Can you imagine that?
The last time I had visited Saint Petersburg was in 1973 and it was called Leningrad. Times were very different behind the “Iron Curtain.” I couldn’t believe the change. One woman told me, “Now we can buy food, clothes and even travel as we would like.” This was not so prior to 1991. Keeping all of this in mind, I wonder if we take our religious freedom for granted. Has the government ever threatened to shut our church doors? What would we do if we found ourselves deprived of worship opportunities? We should be truly grateful to live in a land where protection of religious rights has been a priority from the beginning. Let us thank our Lord for our faith, our freedom and our right to express our beliefs as we choose. We just recently celebrated the 234th anniversary of the Chaplain Corps, and I am proud to be a chaplain here at Fort Campbell serving our great Soldiers, their families, our Department of Defense workers and our faithful retired population. For God and Country! Let freedom ring!
