Soldiers vie for German badge on Belvoir By Adrienne Anderson Staff writer Fort Belvoir Soldiers participated in the swim portion of the German Armed Forces Badge for Military Proficiency, a grueling competition where competitors have to show their physical mettle. On Tuesday, badge hopefuls competed in the final event – a swim at Belvoir’s Benyaurd Pool, in which they had to start swimming with their military uniform on. The German Armed Forces Proficiency Badge is one of several approved foreign badges approved to be worn on the uniform. To succeed in the event, participants had to swim 100 meters in less than 4 minutes without touching the bottom or sides of the pool, while in uniform. Then, they had to remove their uniform without touching the pool sides or bottom. Once that was complete, participants had to toss their wet, heavier uniform completely out of the pool. Other requirements of the competition include a sprint; chin-ups; and a 1,000-meter run; a first-aid test, pistol qualification and road march. At the time of publication, the number of participants to earn the badge had not been released.

The German Armed Forces Proficiency Badge In German: “Abzeichen für Leistungen im Truppendienst,” is a decoration of the Bundeswehr, the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Germany. The decoration can be awarded to all German Soldiers. Allied Soldiers may also be awarded the badge. Any rank may be awarded and wear the badge. In the U.S. military, the German Armed Forces Proficiency Badge is one of the few approved foreign awards, and is one of the most sought after awards to achieve. ~ Maneuver Center of Excellence

SHARP professionals focus on self-improvement at forum By Army News Service Nearly 250 Sexual Harassment/Assault Response and Prevention program managers, sexual assault response coordinators, and victim advocates from around the Army met in Alexandria recently, as part of the fourth annual SHARP Program Improvement Forum. The event, June 27-28, was part of an ongoing effort to improve the SHARP program and delivery of services to Soldiers around the Army. During the event, attendees received in-depth instruction on prevention initiatives, sexual violence in the digital age, and intervention along the continuum of harm. Attendees also reviewed case studies on actions, like expedited transfers. The PIF, said Monique Ferrell, “provides an environment where we can train on emerging issues, answer some of the questions from the folks who work in the field and, where they may have some challenges, to give them information to help them navigate those spaces.” Ferrell has served as the Army SHARP program director since February 2015. The 2018 SHARP PIF included a variety of training and working group sessions and a presentation by Tony Porter, the chief executive officer and co-founder of “A Call to Men.” Porter discussed the Army as a microcosm of the entire society and said sexual assault is not solely a military problem, but one of the entire society.

An eye on prevention

One of the top efforts of the Army’s SHARP program is prevention. One prevention effort, meant to drive down sexual assaults and change Army culture, is the recently piloted “Mind’s Eye 2” program. “We launched the pilot at Fort Stewart, (Ga.) and the great thing about it, which is different than what we have done in the SHARP program before, is we are measuring the effectiveness of it before we launch it Army-wide,” Ferrell said. Mind’s Eye 2 is a program designed to increase individual empathy and bias awareness. “Instead of focusing on what we don’t want Soldiers and members of the formation to do, it focuses on what right looks like, and what it means to be a member of a team,” Ferrell said. “It also helps us recognize when somebody in our formation might be going astray and in need of intervention.”

Monique Ferrell, director of the Army SHARP program, speaks June 28 during The Army Sexual Harassment/Assault Response and Prevention Program Improvement Forum in Alexandria, Va. Ferrell said Mind’s Eye 2 teaches Soldiers how to recognize a situation that may be leading to sexual harassment or sexual assault, and gives them the skills to be able to properly intervene. “Hundreds” have already been trained on the program at Fort Stewart, she said. Soldiers have told her the Mind’s Eye 2 training is “very different” than what’s been done in the past for SHARP. “They believe it’s more impactful, and they believe it’ll make a difference,” she said. At Fort Stewart, the program is being piloted with the 3rd Infantry Division’s Artillery section and the 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team. The pilot kicked off in late January. After the initial training, there was a program assessment and another assessment is expected this month. That assessment will attempt to determine if, after participating in Mind’s Eye 2 training, Soldiers are “able to recognize instances that could lead to sexual violence,” Ferrell said. Additionally, the assessment will look at a Soldier’s willingness and ability to intervene. “Then, over time, we will measure the negative behavior in the unit to determine if there’s been a decrease,” Ferrell said. When assessments are complete, she said the SHARP program will meet with Army leadership to discuss if the Army will move forward with implementation.

Respect yields readiness

The Secretary of the Army and Chief of Staff have, in recent months, been focused on modernization. Late last year, they announced the intent to create a new modernization command, now called Futures Command. And, both are also intently focused on readiness across the force. Ensuring Soldiers respect one another, hold each other accountable for respecting each other, and intervene in situations where they see sexual harassment or suspect situations might turn into sexual assault, might not immediately seem as if it aligns with the Army’s laser-like focus on readiness. But Ferrell said that just isn’t the case. “You can’t have a ready Army when you have sexual violence present in your formation,” she said. And, Army leadership is 100 percent on board with her assessment. “They understand that and they talk in those terms, as well,” she said. “SHARP is an enabler of readiness. And our leaders understand that we need to continue to focus on eradicating sexual violence from our formations. If you have Soldiers who have experienced sexual assault or sexual violence, they are not ready for the fight.”

Warrant Officers celebrate 100th birthday with 5K By Rick Musselman Sports Editor More than 40 Warrant Officers, Service members and family members kicked off the U.S. Army Warrant Officer Corps’ 100th birthday celebration with a 5K run and cake cutting, Monday on Fort Belvoir’s North Post near OCAR Headquarters. The events, sponsored by Belvoir MWR and hosted by CW5 Hal Griffin, Command Chief Warrant Officer, U.S. Army Reserve Command; and MWR sports and fitness specialists, Anthony Leon and Charice Smith; was the first of several gatherings scheduled this week which aim to promote the Army Warrant Officer Corps and celebrate the

100 years since its formation on July 9, 1918, when an act of Congress established the Army Mine Planter Service, as part of the Coast Artillery Corps. “This run is to celebrate the 100th birthday of the United States Army Warrant Officers which started out with 40 mine planters; it was an idea after World War I to help modernize the Army,” Griffin said. “They never could have imagined what would happen over the span of 100 years, how we would expand to over 25,000 of the Army’s systems and technical experts. Warrant officers have evolved over the years. We’ve basically been rewarded for being

Timeout Cheese with dangerous snap By Rick Musselman Sports Editor I’ve occasionally brought up the topic of strange sports—activities that appear to defy all common sense, safety and sanity. Things like the wife-carrying contest, mud-bog snorkeling and the running of the bulls remain popular events all over the world,

despite the inherent risks to life and limb. Well, last night, I started thinking about another such event, officially called the Cooper’s Hill Cheese Rolling and Wake. This competition begins with a 9-pound round of Double Gloucester cheese (whatever that is) being rolled down a slope so steep that it has more in common with a cliff than any hill. Then, competitors take off after it, with most of them soon falling and rolling downward like so many tumbleweeds caught in a desert wind. Indeed, shoes and hats fly off, arms and

legs flail and injuries abound such that a first aid service is provided by the local St. John Ambulance (Gloucester, Cheltenham and Stroud divisions). Even local rugby teams volunteer, catching people who lose their balance and carrying down casualties (which unsettlingly draws attention to the “Wake” part). You know, I can think of much better things to do with that big round of cheese. Sitting down on a hickory stump with some crackers comes to mind.

Summer is here, and higher temperatures can translate into higher energy bills. Here are some tips for conserving energy and staying cool. • Turn off lights in empty and non-used rooms • Unplug electronics and appliances when they are not in use • Close doors and windows when a climate control system is operating • Wash only full loads of dishes and laundry to save energy and conserve water • Use Energy Star ceiling fans to cool your room and distribute air

throughout a home • Change air filters regularly to ensure the climate control system is operating efficiently • Use heat-generating appliances, like stoves and dishwashers, before 11 a.m., or after 6 p.m. • Use LED or compact fluorescent light, CFL, bulbs. They emit less heat and conserve more energy than incandescent light bulbs. • Close your shades when your windows are in direct sunlight to reduce ambient heat gain. Direct sunlight can increase the heat in your home by as much as 40 percent. Visit energy.gov/energysaver for more tips.

CID: beware of Virtual Kidnapping Scam Submitted by Army CID

The U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command’s Computer Crime Investigative Unit, CCIU, is warning the Army community to be on the lookout for the “Virtual Kidnapping” hoax. The scam occurs when an unsuspecting person gets a call and the caller immediately says, “I’ve kidnapped your kid. Send money or the kid dies,” or some similar version. Although this is not a new scam, it recently happened to a member of the Army family. It was quickly confirmed to be a scam, because the victim called their child’s school and confirmed the child was safe in class. “Often, victims of the virtual kidnapping fraud are chosen randomly. The person who answers the telephone is the victim, and no one has been kidnapped,” CID officials said. “Sometimes, criminals target a block of telephone numbers in known affluent area codes. They dial sequential numbers until the call is answered by someone they can shock into believing that their child has been kidnaped. The caller’s approach is forceful, well scripted and can be very convincing.” Some call recipients report hearing screaming in the background and desperate pleas

for help, a crying child and other, equally frightening sounds. The caller is loud, abrasive, abrupt and demanding. When the “kidnapper” uses the child’s name, it will cause the victim to panic and become more compliant. But, keep in mind the caller might have found the child’s name on social media or the parent might have inadvertently told the caller the child’s name during the call. What to do If you get a phone call from someone demanding ransom for an alleged kidnap victim, consider the following: • In most cases, the best course of action is to hang up the phone. • If you engage the caller, don’t confirm or acknowledge your loved one’s name. • Try to slow the interaction. Request to speak with your family member directly by saying “how do I know my loved one is OK? • Ask questions only the alleged kidnap victim would know, like a family member’s or pet’s name.

Always avoid sharing information about yourself or your family. • Attempt to contact the “kidnapped” victim via phone, text, or social media, and request they call back from their own cell phone. • To buy time, repeat the caller’s requests and tell them you are writing down the demand or tell the caller you need time to get things moving. • If you suspect a real kidnapping is taking place, immediately contact the nearest FBI office, CID office, or local law enforcement agency. Don’t be a victim To avoid becoming a victim, look for these possible indicators: • The call does not originate from the “kidnapped” person’s phone. • The caller goes to great lengths to keep you on the line so you can’t make calls or verify their claims. • Ransom money must be paid by wire, PayPal, Moneygram or similar service.

• Ransom amount quickly decreases if the parent resists. Remember the fraudster relies on shock, speed and fear. Criminals know they have a small window of opportunity to extract a ransom, before the victim realizes the scam or authorities become involved, officials warned.

To report a felony-level crime, provide information about a crime, or if you are a crime victim, contact your local military police or CID, 1-844-ARMY-CID (844-276-9243) or via email to Army.CID.Crime.Tips@mail.mil.
