Women’s Equality Day observance highlights struggle for voting rights By Beverly Joyner

633D AIR BASE WING PUBLIC AFFAIRS JOINT BASE LANGLEY-EUSTIS, VA.

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of American women’s right to vote, Joint Base Langley-Eustis hosted a Women’s Equality Day observance Aug. 27, at Fort Eustis, Va. Established by congressional proclamation in 1971, Women’s Equality Day is observed on Aug. 26 each year. The observance commemorates the passage of the 19th Amendment, which legally recognized women as equal citizens and gave them the right to vote. This year’s theme, “Celebrating Women’s Right to Vote,” features a poster showing silhouettes of the 36 states that were required to ratify the amendment. Illinois, the first state to approve the amendment, is represented by the largest silhouette. “Women’s Equality Day is being observed to highlight the right of

citizens of the United States to vote and ensure that their right will not be denied on account of a person’s sex,” said U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class Thaddeus McCall, Women’s Equality Day Observance coordinator. “Women have contributed to society in amazing ways by breaking barriers in combat zones, politics, business and entertainment.” During the invocation, Maj. Jeffrey Ellis, Fort Eustis Regimental Memorial Chapel family life chaplain, gave thanks for the women throughout history who stepped forward to claim their position in society. “Too often our world has sought to silence or marginalize certain voices and lives,” said Ellis. “We pray that their example will inspire us and that those who follow us will find in us faithful examples.” To help the audience understand the struggles leading up to passage of the 19th Amendment, the event featured a reading of the Woman Suffrage Movement historical time-

line. Serving as guest speaker was retired Chief Warrant Officer Five Georgene Dixon, who was the first active-duty female selected as the Army food advisor. “Social change comes about because of the vast movement of many courageous people, both men and women, who refused to back down,” said Dixon. “Many people, men and women, are responsible for the changes to women’s rights that made our country stronger, greater and gave more meaning to the words – one nation undivided.” Dixon discussed how the Woman Suffrage Movement began with a women’s rights convention in Seneca Falls, New York in 1848, a movement that continued for the next 50 years under the leadership of women such as Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and many more women’s rights pioneers. “Today we are celebrating the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment. It’s an interesting fact that the amendment does not use gender, per se,” said Dixon. “However, it states the right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.”

WATCH OUT FOR OUR FUTURE By Staff Sgt. Chandler Baker

633D AIR BASE WING PUBLIC AFFAIRS JOINT BASE LANGLEY-EUSTIS, VA.

Besides the obvious fact that these vehicles are much larger than the average car, school buses have special driving laws for their own safety and that of the drivers around them. Here are some of those laws according to Virginia State Code 46.2-859:  You must stop for all stopped school buses with flashing red lights and an extended stop sign when you approach from any direction on a public or private road.  Stop and remain stopped until all lights stop flashing, children are clear and the bus moves again.  You do not have to stop if you are traveling in the oppo-

site direction on a roadway with a median or barrier dividing the road and the bus is on the opposite side of the median or barrier.  You have to stop if you are traveling in the opposite direction on a multi-lane roadway without a median or barrier dividing the road and the bus is on the opposite side of the road.  You must also stop if the bus is loading or unloading children and the signals are not on. In Virginia, you can be charged with reckless driving, a Class One Misdemeanor, for not stopping for a school bus. If charged with reckless driving, you could spend up to 12 months in jail and/or pay a fine of up to $2,500. You could also lose

As school season approaches, the 50th Space Wing Safety Office and childcare personnel advocate Schriever Airmen be aware of school bus traffic rules as well as increase awareness of the other unique traffic and safety conditions of the season, such as school zone speed limits and higher traffic flow around school areas during morning and evening hours.

your driver’s license for up to six months and may have your car impounded. Having a reckless driving charge on

your record could impact you maintaining or obtaining a security clearance, and becoming a U.S. Citizen.

The future of our country are on these buses. Practice good driver safety and stop for school buses.

Annual walk to raise awareness of depression and suicide By Christine F. Gilchrist

HAMPTON ROADS MORNING OF HOPE ORGANIZER

On Sept. 7th, the annual Hampton Roads Morning of Hope walk will be held at Mt. Trashmore in Virginia Beach to promote good mental health and to prevent suicide. The goal of this initiative is to raise awareness of depression as a treatable disease and of suicide as a preventable tragedy. Last year, with over 3,600 attending, all seven Hampton Roads cities and all five military branches attended. This is an example of our civilian and military communities joining forces for a common cause. As part of this event, there is always an informative and moving program emceed by WAVY-TV 10 anchor, Tom Schaad. Several speakers will

share their personal stories of how they have been touched by depression or suicide and there will also be several civic and military leaders. On stage representing the Army was Major General Paul M. Benenati, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Army Training and Doctrine Command. His message reinforced the need to address the topics of suicide and depression. He stressed the importance of the Hampton Roads Morning of Hope as a resource for raising awareness of depression as a treatable disease and encouraged people to talk about depression and to seek help. This year, we are proud to have Major General Lonnie Hibbard, the Commanding General for the U.S. Army Center of Initial Military Training, U.S. Army Training and Doc-

trine Command, as a speaker. In addition to the program, this event will also include a complimentary breakfast of Chick-fil-A chicken biscuits, Starbucks coffee, Flowers Baking Co. and Sam’s Club pastries and breakfast bars. For support and education, there will be 15 counselors on site, available to talk with you; answer questions, hand out information and even to assist with a depression inventory for interested partici-

pants. For those who have lost a loved one to suicide, there are a number of ways to remember them. There is a Memory Wall where you can add a picture of your loved one and add their names to a Memory List. You can also have the name read during the program. Last year, 262 names were read in remembrance. Participants affected by suicide could also wear a colored ribbon as an armband.

7 You’d wear: red, if you lost a father or mother; green, if you lost a brother or sister; yellow, for extended family (i.e., uncle); blue, for a spouse and purple, if you lost your son or daughter to suicide. You’d wear silver if you have been affected by depression. The ribbons bind us together in a fellowship of healing, help and hope. The crane has been chosen to represent the Hampton Roads Morning of Hope as it has become an international symbol of healing, peace and hope. In ancient Japan, people believed the crane lived for 1,000 years. Legend has it that if you fold 1,000 origami cranes your prayers can be answered. We have made 1,000 which will be strung together to form a curtain of cranes that participants can walk through after the program. The prayer that has been folded into each crane is for peace and hope not only for those who presently struggle with the disease of

SERVICE MEMBERS’ SELFLESS ACT CROSSES GENERATIONS By Airman 1st Class Alexandra Singer 633RD AIR BASE WING PUBLIC AFFAIRS JOINT BASE LANGLEY EUSTIS, VA.

Back in the 1990s, a young U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Kevin Warrick was given the opportunity to volunteer for the Big Brothers Big Sisters program in Hampton, Virginia. During his time as a volunteer, Warrick mentored Jemal Murray, an 11-year-old who later went on to serve in the U.S. Army from 1997 to 2006 as a fuel handler. Murray was inspired by Warrick to continue the tradition of mentorship, and now serves as a mentor to 15year-old Cory Johnson.

Selfless Service Warrick served in the USAF for 26 years, and retired from here in 2010. Since his childhood, Warrick, a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania native, had a mission to give back to the community that helped him so much throughout the years. With his community’s support, he was inspired to do more with his life through education and military service. Warrick said he used the discipline and values he learned in the military

to shape his style of mentorship. “The Air Force core values helped me with the way I mentored Jemal,” Warrick said. “The Air Force provides Airmen stable culture so all Airmen can excel in their career. All kids need stability in their life to reach their full potential.”

It was this structure and stability that stuck with Murray, who kept the teachings close into adulthood.

Passing it on Today, Murray’s style of mentoring those around him isn’t so different from how he was once mentored as

a young boy. The former mentee credits his wanting to become a mentor himself, to the lessons he learned from Warrick and wanted to pass on to the next generation. “I was surprised and grateful he made that decision to give back to the community and become a Big Brother,” said Warrick. “I’m sure the Army influenced his decision to continue to serve our community.” Warrick taught Murray the importance of giving back. “One of the biggest things you can give somebody is your time,” Murray said. “Your time is so valuable that people pay you for it, and it’s one of those things that you can’t get back once you give it.” Along with providing life lessons and shared values, the mentors and mentees in the BBBS program do a lot of recreational things together, such as going bowling, going to the movies and playing video games. According to Johnson, Murray’s mentorship has already made an impact in his life. “He’s exposed me to a lot of new things,” said Johnson. “It’s very good having an older man in your life to steer you in the right direction.” Johnson plans on continuing the tradition to mentor young men when he grows up, and even has thoughts of joining the USAF someday.

The black smoke swirled around the young fireman as he helped fight the growing flames that threatened to consume the home. Through the rolling darkness that consumed him, a hand passed back what looked like a dirty rag. This was 15-year-old Jeffrey Barbour’s first experience in a burning building after joining the Hampton Fire Department on July 10, 1972, following a long line of firefighting family members. “I grew up in the fire station,” Barbour said. “At the age of 16, I knew a lot more about the job than most people. Smoke is in my blood. My great, great grandfather was one of the original 12 charter members of the Hampton Fire Department.” Barbour saved his first human life while in high school, when he performed CPR on a high school freshman after an accident during a sporting event. Now as a 633rd Medical Group clinical specialist in the same-day surgery and post-anesthesia unit, Barbour noted his interest in helping others stems from a family tradition of serving others.

Finding passion While with the Fire Department, Barbour got his first taste of medical care by taking American Red Cross first aid classes. He then used this training during his time as a

member of an ambulance rescue squad, along with his brothers, Jack and Jesse. During his time with the ambulance squad, Barbour’s mentor, Wayne Collins, who taught him a great deal about being a first responder, helped him realize his passion for medical care. After graduating high school, Barbour decided to follow his mentor, Collins, to nursing school. “I graduated on a Friday and started the nursing program that next Monday,” Barbour said. “I worked two years at a paid ambulance service and did other jobs to make money for school.” When his school hours changed, Barbour transferred work to another hospital and worked as a technician in the emergency room. He picked up skills from the other health care providers that he could use later in his career. “I was attending nursing school five days a week and paramedic school two nights a week and occasionally on Saturdays,” Barbour said. After graduating nursing

and paramedic school, Barbour worked at the Hampton General Hospital and taught the Emergency Medical Services program at Thomas Nelson Community College for 16 years. “I’ve been in the Post Anesthesia Care Unit most of my career since 1988,” Barbour said. “I retired from Sentara Hospital in December 2006 and then immediately came here as a contractor to fill a civil service position.” One of the things Barbour takes the most pride in is patient care, and ensuring a speedy recovery. “If I take care of somebody in the PACU here, I’ll go up to the floor they are on to see them or I’ll check on them later outside,” Barbour said. “I’ve even delivered discharge instructions patients forgot to take with them to their house, so they have them and just to make sure they are okay. I will go the extra step for my patients.”

Leaving a legacy With his extensive knowledge and dedication to his ca-

reer, Barbour is the go-to at the hospital when it comes to education. He spends a lot of time training the new Intensive Care Unit nurses and the CPR and Basic Life Support classes for the whole base. During his more than 40year career as a nurse, Barbour has worked with and raised a fair share of doctors and nurses and has kept up with most of them throughout their careers. To Barbour, the medical providers he works with and trains are his “kids.” “I tell my kids, although they may be in their 20s and 30s, they are still kids to me, that I hope they never have to see or do half the things that I had to,” Barbour said. “I don’t need to run all the touchdowns myself. I can watch my kids excel and do wonderful things with their careers.” Barbour talked about how nursing requires some of the same values as the Air Force core values and uses a quote from Vince Lombardi, “Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can

Being a first responder and a nurse, Barbour talked about the strain of being a part of the worst day of someone’s life. “When it comes to taking care of people, we don’t understand why things happen in this world but we’ll find the answer to that question someday,” Barbour said. In coping with the weight of his job, Barbour looks forward to his hobbies such as amateur radio, riding his motorcycle, camping, learning about history and playing taps at memorials and dedications. Barbour plans on continuing his career as a nurse at Langley Hospital until he retires in 2023 to spend time with his wife, Lori, and do more of the things he loves. It has been many years since then 15-year-old Barbour climbed a set of stairs through heavy smoke to fight a kitchen fire that demolished most of the building and where he saved his first life: a kitten. Pushing through the smoke, Barbour carried the kitten out to a balcony where he puffed breaths of air and performed compressions before taking the kitten to the rescue truck for further treatment. That was the beginning of Barbour’s more than 40 years of service to his country where although he may have worn several different uniforms, he still provided the same dedicated care to each life he touched.

13 Organization volunteers pose for a photo during Operation Deploy Your Dress’ seasonal grand-opening at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia, Aug. 27, 2019. Many of the organization volunteers are military spouses who offer insight and guidance to customers who may be attending a military ball for the first time. Airman 1st Class Monica Roybal

Uplifting others with ‘deployed’ dresses By Monica Roybal

633RD AIR BASE WING PUBLIC AFFAIRS JOINT BASE LANGLEY-EUSTIS, VA.

Operation Deploy Your Dress launched its seasonal grand-opening at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Va., Aug. 27. The Fort Eustis branch of Operation Deploy Your Dress is a volunteer-run organization that helps military members and their families find a formal dress that fits their individual needs and has been serving the JBLE community since 2016. “Operation Deploy Your Dress was established to help make military balls more affordable for those in attendance,” said Kelly Day, ODYD volunteer. “We offer one free dress and accessory per year to military ID cardholders. We understand that there is

always a cost involved with these events, whether it’s babysitting, getting a dress, shoes or accessories and we want to help offset that cost so that people who want to attend, can attend.” According to Day, ODYD gave away 640 dresses to military families in 2018, but the shop volunteers agree that their organization is about more than dresses. Most of the volunteers are military spouses who use their experience to help guide those who have not previously attended a military ball. “I think that our organization’s work really shows that we are all here to look out for each other,” Day said. “It’s very much a community organization. Our goal is to make military life more fun and put a positive spin on the things that we do and the traditions that are involved with the military.”

Day, spouse of U.S. Army Lt. Col. Jason Day, Army Support Activity commander, explained that the volunteers work to create a welcoming and uplifting atmosphere for shoppers to help alleviate extra stress they may feel when searching for the right formal gown. “I love that we get to help people and a getting a chance to make women feel good about how they look and how they feel,” Day continued. “You can tell when someone has found the dress that they want. You can just see their face light up. It gives me chills.” While most of the shop-runners are military spouses, this year they welcomed a new volunteer, Avery Mead, age 14 and daughter of U.S. Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Kevin Mead, 733rd Logistic Readiness Squadron superintendent. The 9th-grader dedicated

more than 50 hours and $500 toward decorations, new shelving and paint in an effort to make the shop more welcoming. “Volunteering has taught me to think about more than just myself,” Avery said. “This has helped me spend time with more people and see how I am able to help them with their needs.” Avery said seeing the uplifting and complimentary exchanges between strangers as they were shopping was an unexpected and pleasant surprise. She explained how witnessing the empowerment in the room and the line of customers that extended out the front door, inspired her to continue to work for others. “Everyone was helping each other with what to choose, it was nice to see them all being so helpful and complimenting each other,” Avery said. “I think there are a lot of other organizations I can help (at JBLE).”
