Airman recognized with volunteer service medal BY PAUL BELLO JOINT BASE ANACOSTIA-BOLLING PUBLIC AFFAIRS

JOINT BASE ANACOSTIA-BOLLING, D.C. - Senior Airman James Baynard, a personnel manager with Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling's Security Services department, was recently recognized with a Military Outstanding Volunteer Service Medal for his work on and off base from July 2008 to March 2012. He was put up for the medal by his peers and has been hailed as a prime example to service members everywhere. Baynard, who has been in the Air Force for a little more than four years, is a native of Sterling, Va. To date, he's provided more than 1,000 hours of community service to JBAB and numerous organizations in theWashington, D.C. area. His efforts include organizing holiday activities, bake sales and fundraisers for fellow service members; providing a mentorship to children at nearby Leckie Elementary School; speaking to kids about the dangers of drugs at JBAB's Child Development Centers and Youth Center; assisting the Southeast Washington, D.C. Soup Kitchen and working with various local chapters of the American Red Cross. His contributions extend overseas, as well. Baynard served in Balad, Iraq from February to August 2010. During that time he worked with the U.S. Army and supported the USO on a number of endeavors, in addition to helping out at the base chapel and assisting patients at the theater hospital. He looks back on his time there with great reverence and said it's clearly one of many highlights so far in his military career. "I met so many people from all over the world. It was an amazing experience," Baynard said. "As a volunteer I helped doctors take vital signs, assisted in getting supplies and did whatever I could to help patients stay


comfortable. It was really gratifying to help service members just like me. That's what I will remember most." When asked what advice he would give

someone who is thinking about volunteering, Baynard had this to say. "Think of what you want to do and have fun with it. It's great to give back. It makes you

a better person," he said. "I'm the type of person who likes to keep busy and get involved with things. Everyone can volunteer and do something."

JOINT BASE ANACOSTIA-BOLLING, D.C. -- Military personnel from Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling and Joint Base Andrews attended yet another, hour-long, safety briefing where the usual yawns and daydreaming were replaced with hollers in disbelief and focused listeners. The 24-year long program 'Street Smart' presented by Florida Stay Alive from Education (SAFE) Inc. Firefighter and Paramedic Vince Easevoli kept the attention of over 200 military members at JBAB alone, July 10. Featuring photos and descriptions of real-life trauma incidents, 'Street Smart' is a no-holds-barred presentation that gets students involved. Easevoli led a discussion on the importance of making responsible decisions concerning safety. According to the program's website, "Street Smart is not a lecture. It is a real-life view of a person's options." What was a shock to most, were simply real-world driving situations people are put through every five seconds around the world every day. "There are a lot of people who have no idea what happens to the human body as the result of a car crash," said Easevoli, founder and teacher of 'Street Smart'. "They don't have a clue what kinds of medical procedures have to be done. Hopefully by showing people this, it'll be in the back of their mind; they'll take the information taught and they'll think twice before making poor choices." While drugs and alcohol play a major role in vehicle crashes and deaths, Easevoli focused the majority of his U.S. AIR FORCE PHOTO BY SENIOR AIRMAN STEELE C. G. BRITTON presentation to any driver or rider, seatbelt use. Executive Director Vince Easevoli, Florida Stay Alive from Education (SAFE) Inc., asks Seaman Apprentice Austin Turner, U.S. "Especially to the younger age groups where they Navy Ceremonial Guard trainee, a series of driving-related questions while wearing an "uncomfortable" neck brace during a might have the opinion of themselves where they're 'Street Smart' demonstration at the Bolling Club, July 10, at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling. Easevoli later showed those in attenbulletproof or invincible and nothing bad can happen to them. What we do is give away the information to dance demonstrations of trauma patients using Turner that wowed the audience to holler and yelp while imagining themselves

in the similar situation. The SAFE program has presented 'Street Smart' to over 850,000 people in high school, college, the U.S. military and the National Football League since 1988 when firefighter and paramedic Vince Easevoli started the program.

JOINT BASE ANACOSTIABOLLING, D.C. -- It's been a month since his arrival to Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, but new vice-commander Col. Mike Saunders is settling in nicely to his new role on base and is looking forward to furthering its overall mission in the National Capital Region and local community. Saunders, a 22-year veteran of the Air Force, has an extensive background in civil engineering and a familiarity with theWashington, D.C. area. His first of two assignments at the Pentagon came in 2000 when he was part of the Air Force civil engineering staff. He was there again from December 2011 to June 2012 prior to joining JBAB. Along the way his career includes stops at Joint Base Andrews in nearby Maryland and time at the Industrial College of the Armed Forces at Fort McNair just down the Potomac River. Saunders comes from a military family, as his father is a retired Air Force senior master sergeant. In reality, he admits to being in the Air Force one way or another his entire life. That's why he also understands what it's like growing up as a military child. "I went through all the same moving and changing of schools that a military child typically goes through. Those things are never easy, but you learn to accept it," Saunders said. "My father is an idol of mine. He's a primary reason why I chose this life and why I decided to join the Air Force Academy right after high school. It just felt like the right thing to do and it couldn't have worked out any better for me." Through the Air Force, Saunders has received numerous opportunities that he's incredibly grateful for. This includes achieving a master's degree in civil engineering while attending night classes so it wouldn't interfere with his daytime job. As outstanding an accomplishment as that is, he's especially thankful for numerous command opportunities including three different deployed command assignments supporting operations IRAQI FREEDOM, EN-

DURING FREEDOM and NEW DAWN. This includes two tours of duty in Iraq where he led an Expeditionary Civil Engineering Squadron and more recently commanded and Expeditionary Mission Support Advisory Group that was responsible for training Iraqi forces in engineering, security and logistics. Saunders last visited the country from July to December 2011 and led seven different transition teams that were among the last American service members to leave Iraq as part of the final drawdown. "My first deployment to Iraq was in 2003 after our initial operations there began.To be there at the beginning when we were building everything up and to return again at the end when we were drawing down provided a lot of closure," Saunders said. "Bases I had previously visited that had 30,000 people on it were down to 900 or at zero already. It was personally rewarding to watch Iraq grow its sovereignty and to hand the keys over to them at the end.The impact of seeing our efforts firsthand is something I'll never forget." Since coming aboard here at JBAB, Saunders has been meeting various agency leads and other personnel to get a feel for how things are done on base. He likes what he's seen so far in terms of dedication from the community and knows JBAB is poised to continue growing in the years ahead. He also hasn't found it difficult to transition here, just different than what he is used to. He attributes that to its uniqueness of being a Navy-led base and just having to learn a different approach and process to achieving results. "A big focus for me is to look at the military-to-civilian conversion that will be occurring for many of our airmen. We want to make sure that transition is as easy and as seamless as possible for everyone involved," Saunders said. "We also want to make sure our tenant organizations remain successful and that we continue to provide the same premier service to those operating on and visiting the base." Some changes have already taken place, such as an Elite Guard now manning the gates of JBAB. Saunders said other priorities, such as

TSA expands PreCheck Program BY JIM



WASHINGTON -- The Transportation Security Administration is expanding a program that's designed to provide faster processing for traveling service members passing through the nation's airports while allowing TSA inspectors to concentrate on threats to travelers' safety, a DOD official said in testimony here today. Todd Rosenblum, the principle deputy secretary of defense for homeland defense, praised the TSA effort that will expedite processing for military travelers. He spoke before the House Committee on Homeland Security's transportation security subcommittee. In prepared testimony, Rosenblum talked about the TSA effort to expand the PreCheck system. TSA began testing the system in November 2011 at the Monterey

have them see what can happen to them when they make poor choices which not only affects them but affect other people as well," said Easevoli. "We travel all over the world; wherever there's a military installation. We have presented to high schools, universities, the National Football League and to companies with a lot of drivers, it's not only for younger people but for adults as well."

Peninsula Airport in California, he said. The system has since been expanded, he said, to Reagan-National Airport in Washington, D.C., and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in Washington State. The PreCheck system is an outgrowth of legislation passed last year -- the RiskBased Security Screening for Members of the Armed Forces Act. Under the program, service members -- in uniform or wearing civilian clothes -- can present their common access cards and qualify for expedited screening lanes. This builds on past TSA/DOD partnerships, Rosenblum said. "U.S. military personnel in uniform with military identification cards are not required to remove their boots or shoes unless they set off an alarm," he said in his written testimony. TSA also works with DOD to expedite screening for wounded warriors and their families and

for Honor Flight veterans -- a grass-roots effort to bring veterans to Washington to visit their war memorials. TSA inspectors use the common access card to instantly identify members of the armed forces and ensure they are in good standing with the Defense Department and the FBI's National Criminal Information Center. Once the check is completed, the system erases personal information. Rosenblum emphasized that service members do not need to be wearing uniforms to take advantage of PreCheck. "DOD is fully committed to continuing its long-standing partnership with the Department of Homeland Security and the Transportation Safety Administration to strengthen aviation security while significantly enhancing the travel experience whenever possible for our service members," he said.

From taking a pulse to loading the victim onto a backboard to simulating an intravenous-line being inserted and much more, students of 'Street Smart' can see and feel what it's like to try to save a life, and what it's like to be the victim of trauma. Seaman Apprentice Austin Turner, U.S. Navy Ceremonial Guard trainee, volunteered during the presentation for Easevoli to simulate the steps of a firefighter paramedic in these fast-paced situations. "I will never drive or ride without a seatbelt," saidTurner. "The program helps everybody learn and to be aware of what one should and shouldn't

do to prevent accidents in the future." Military installations across the world have huge thanks to give to not only the Florida SAFE Inc. and their team's dedication to saving lives but to Anheuser-Busch for sponsoring the interactive safety briefings across the U.S. and overseas; about half of 'Street Smart' briefings each year are for military members. According to the organization's website ticker, "852,454 students taught and counting." For more information about Florida SAFE Inc. and the 'Street Smart' mission visit

Electrical emergency, soaring temperature brings base commander's request for help BY JOSEPH P. CIRONE JOINT BASE ANACOSTIA-BOLLING PUBLIC AFFAIRS

JOINT BASE ANACOSTIA-BOLLING, D.C.-- Electrical cable failures have prompted a request for help from all personnel at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling to take measures to immediately reduce electrical use until repairs are completed. The catastrophic failure of an underground electrical cable on July 6 and the failure of another cable the night of July 10, threatens the uninterrupted delivery of power to a portion of JBAB. Joint Base Commander, Navy Capt. Anthony T. Calandra, said three underground electrical feeder cables and a backup cable, all located in the same area, supply power to a portion of the base. With the two cable failures, the remaining cable and the backup are carrying the entire load for that section of the base. Other sections of the base are served by different feeder cable and remain unaffected. Fearing increased demands for electric will exceed the capacity of the remaining cables as the temperature increases during the day; Calandra has issued a plea for help from on-base workers and residents to immediately reduce their use of non-essential electrical devices and appliances. "The feeders we have in use now are carrying 237 Amps. We expect daytime temperatures to approach 90 degrees and our load will increase. As the number of Amps approaches 300 we'll have to begin load shedding," Calandra said. Load shedding is a deliberate action taken by the electric utility provider to reduce demand on the electrical distribution system (the two remaining cables) and avoid further damage. Calandra asks that all unnecessary and non-mission essential electrical devices be disconnected from the electrical distribution system by shutting them off and preferably, unplugging them from the electrical outlet, since electric stills flows while simply powered down. Turning off lights not in use or in areas with access to natural light; TVs, radios, coffee makers, empty refrigerators, extra computer monitors (if you have more than one) and other devices are examples he provided. "Every little bit helps," he added. Calandra said, "The goal is to reduce the total power draw for the base so we do not threaten the entire electrical grid's integrity and so we can maintain mission essential systems." PEPCO, the electric utility provider, is working to repair the cables, but the work is not something that can be completed quickly, given their underground location and the extent of the cable failures. The cause of the failures and an estimated date of repair completion were not available at press time, according to a PEPCO spokesperson. To mitigate the impact on mission essential systems, JBAB's Public Works Department has plans to further reduce the strain on the electrical grid by using back-up generators in the facilities that have them, Calandra assured. JBAB is committed to providing exceptional mission support and base services through pride, teamwork, and excellence, with the cooperation of our mission partners, residents, the community and suppliers of services, such as utilities, he concluded.

JOINT BASE ANDREWS, Md.-- And we’re going to get married! Wedding bells are in the air for Les Johnson, a telecommunications specialist at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, and his fiancé, Airman 1st Class Deena Precil. The two got engaged July 5 at the Joint Base Andrews Commissary - the same place they first met and laid eyes on one another just six months earlier. Johnson told his bride-to-be that he would meet her for a late lunch, but that he had to finish something for work first. In reality, he was allowing himself enough time to drive to a nearby UPS store to pick up the engagement ring he had purchased online. With the ring now in his possession, Johnson met Precil at the front of the Commissary for their lunch date. As they were about to leave, he mentioned forgetting something and that he would be right back. He asked her to wait there. Precil then heard her name paged to Aisle 16. And in the same frozen foods aisle where they first found each other - her holding sushi and him on one knee - it happened. “After a few dates, I felt an instant connection and knew she was the one for me. There was no doubt in my mind,” Johnson


said. “I wanted it to be a complete surprise. I thought proposing at the very spot we met would be the way to go.” The two were serenaded by onlookers and staff members with claps and congratulations. While plans are still in the early stages, Precil said the two would get married in August 2013 in his native home of New Orleans. As for that special moment at the Commissary that day, it’s something she’ll never forget. “I was shocked. I’m still trying to catch my breath,” Precil said. “I’m looking forward to spending my life with him. He’s my love.”


Les Johnson, telecommunications specialist, proposes to his girlfriend, Airman 1st Class Deena Precil at the Joint Base Andrews Commissary. Johnson first met his new fiancé at the commissary in aisle 16 six months ago.

From the bottom to the top, leadership defined COMMENTARY BY COL. TOX WILCOX

F. E. WARREN AIR FORCE BASE, Wyo. -- Have you ever noticed how everyleadershipcommentarycomes from the top of the chain? What about the opinions of our largest population segment in the military - our junior enlisted? Sinceitwasmyturntowriteanarticle, I decided to take it to the troops and reverse the commentary process by publishing a leadership article written by the troops to the folks in leadership positions, at all levels. I asked Airmen to express their thoughts, ideas and observations on what makes a leader, both good and bad. So this leadership commentary is for the supervisors, the bosses and leaders ... There is always room for improvement. Let's take a look at a few of the do's and don'ts according to the lower-ranking future military leaders who judge and scrutinize our actions on a daily basis. So, from the bottom to the top: Not all supervisors possess leadershipqualities.It'safact,andbelieve us, we notice. From the lowest-ranking Airman all the way up through the ranks, people appreciate an approachable personality. For the supervisor coming in with a missiononly-at-any-cost demeanor, it makes

youappearunapproachable,making us nervous, more prone to mistakes and, more than likely, someone we do not want to emulate.The mission is number one, but without confident and competent people, it will suffer.We suggest starting the day off with a greeting, ask about our weekend, be interested; this will put us more at ease and ready to knock out duties confidently. With this approach, when the time comes to complete something expeditiously, we will appreciate and understand your no-nonsense approach and execute your orders without hesitation. You cannot be hard-core and unapproachableallthetime;thereisabalance. Don't be the "pushover" boss either because, believe it or not, supervisors that allow us too much freedom, or those that do not draw the line at acceptable and unacceptable behavior, or often let things "slide," aren't respected. Think of it likethis:wearelikeyourteenagekids; we don't like you for your strict rules and curfews, but we understand and respect you for it. Speakingofrespect,wegainmore and more respect for you when you participateinmandatoryorevenvoluntary events with us. If you want to lead us, be involved with us. We understand you can't always be right there with us, and we don't want you

with us all the time, but there are times we would like to see you there supporting us. How about coming outonatrainingdayandgettingalittle dirty?We remember a commander from pre-9/11 days who would always come out for training. It was never advertised what day he was coming, but we got excited at the thought of training side-by-side with the commander -- especially on the day of searching and handcuffing: a chance to handcuff your commander and not get in trouble? Score! The commander would start the training day by saying, "In the event we go to war someday and have to fight sideby-side, we must be able to operate. I don't need any of you being afraid to dress my wounds because I wear a bird on my lapel and you don't want to screw it up. In the same sense, I don'twanttohavetodress yoursand beafraidofyoudyingbecauseInever went to training for a refresher." It's a smallgestureintheheartsandminds of your subordinates. So supervisors, don't attend training and sit on the side and watch, get out there and train with us. Takingcareofeachotherissomething we should be doing at all levels, and there are many ways to take care of us. Knowing the morale and welfare of your people is a good start. Leadersatalllevelsshouldknowtheir

people, at least who they are or what they do, but for the first line supervisor, you should know us better than anyone. If the first time you see my dorm room is on the day of a dorm room inspection, I have little respect for you. Do us all justice by getting to know us as a person, not just a number. Do you know my wife's name, where I live, what I like to do? Have you ever visited me at my residence? Are you there for me to reach out to in a time of uncertainty or need?The bestsupervisoristheonewhoknows us and our family situation and is willing to spend time ensuring our personal and professional lives are in order. Do you prepare us for the next step -- to take over and perform your jobwhenyouaregone?Weshouldbe able to keep things going when you are gone. Recognition is important; the good supervisor gives us a pat on the back when we do well and passes recognition down to the Airmen when the flight or shop does well. Don't take individual credit and brag for something we helped you do. Recognition keeps us motivated; makes us feel like we are making a difference;challengesustodobetter; and encourages us to look at new ways of solving the same old problems. By preparing us to perform your job and recognizing us for good

work, you are grooming us to be future leaders. Please pass on your knowledge and tricks of the trade -- don't keep them close hold. Give us the knowledge to solve those same problems someday. Sometimes we may make a mistake, but don't treat it the same as a crime. We want to do well and solve problems and sometimes may go in the wrong direction and cause a later problem, but it was an honest effort to make things better. If we do somethingstupidorcriminal, wedeserve what we get and want to see discipline as long as it is evenly applied across the unit. We don't want an Airman to get the same enlisted performance report rating or the samedecorationaswegetifheorshe can't pass the physical fitness test. Take care of those who are meeting thestandardanddon'ttrytoloweror ignore the standard for those who do not meet it. Definitely different perspectives on a leadership commentary, but one's we should all take seriously. Have you ever sat down with your Airmen and noncommissioned and askedthemwhattheylikeanddislike in a leader? I know it would be a great and personable conversation, and I'm sure you would be surprised what could be taught "from the bottom to the top."
