New 59th Ord. Bde. Leader Takes Charge by Amy Perry Production/News Assistant Editor
The 59th Ordnance Brigade conducted a change of command ceremony Friday at Whittington Field on the Ordnance Campus. Col. Pharisse Berry, outgoing commander, handed the reins to Col. Thomas Rivard during the event overseen by Col. Edward M. Daly, Ordnance School commandant. Berry served as the 61st Ord. Bde. commander before it deactivated in October 2010. He then took command of the 59th Bde. and had a great deal of impact on the Ordnance School as it completed its BRAC realignment to Fort Lee, said Daly. “For the past few years, Pharisse Berry has led the charging efforts that endured as we provide and have provided the operational Army with well trained, highly agile and motivated Ordnance warriors,” he said. “I am grateful for the fact that he has commanded at a time when the challenges and mission required nothing less than an experienced, committed, selfless and outstanding leader. “You have definitely demonstrated that excellence is not a single act … and that leadership is not just about position, but attitude and action,” Daly noted. In ceremony speeches such as these,

Bde. change of command ceremony June 29 at Whittington Field, Ordnance Campus. said Berry, many will run through a list of accomplishments for the outgoing commander, and he said he did appreciate the kind words by Daly. “But when I look back on the last 24 months, I don’t think of the things that we accomplished at the brigade since my arrival, I think about all the people – Soldiers
and civilians – who made those accomplishments happen,” Berry said. “Sure, I’m proud of everything the 59th Ordnance Brigade has accomplished since its arrival here at Fort Lee, but it could not have happened if it weren’t for those dedicated professionals who planned, argued, collaborated, coordinated and executed to en-
sure we completed the BRAC mandate on time.” He also had some words of advice for the incoming commander, Rivard. “Make sure you know the words to the Ordnance Song,” he joked. “Command Sgt. Maj. Sultan Muhammad will be watching and by the time you leave here, you will be able to sing it in your sleep.” Daly welcomed the team of Rivard and his wife, Amy, during the ceremony. The Rivards most recently served at the Army War College at Carlisle Barracks, Pa. “Tom is the perfect choice for this command,” Daly said. “He understands the importance of support to the warfighter and is a leader who brings an extraordinary combination of talent and experience to the position.” Rivard thanked his Family, friends and fellow military members for attending the ceremony and stressed the importance of their mission. “Our mission is to train world class Ordnance Soldiers who can contribute immediately to our world class Army,” he said. “Our mission is immensely important. “I pledge to provide you the best leadership that I can as we work toward the priorities given to us,” Rivard said. “Just as I hope you will give the best working for me, you can expect that I will give the best working for you.”
Ord School Receives 12 New Hercules Recovery Vehicles by T. Anthony Bell Senior Writer/Special Projects
The Ordnance School has added a new tracked vehicle to its training inventory. Ten M88A2 Hercules Recovery Vehicles arrived at the Ordnance Campus June 27-28. They will complement the inventory of M88A1s used in the tracked vehicle repairer advanced individual training course and additional skill identifier course. Sgt. 1st Class Misael Exantus, instructor-writer, Track Metalworking Recovery
Training Department, said the course currently uses 12 M88A1s for training but only exposed engines for the slightly different but much improved M88A2. He said students will get a more hands-on experience with the new vehicles. “Now, the student can get into those vehicles and have a better understanding of them,” said Exantus. Exantus added that the program of instruction will be modified slightly later this year to accommodate the new vehicles. Four of the M88A2s will be
allotted to the 91H AIT course. The remaining vehicles will be used in the ASI course. The 91H course will continue to use the M88A1s, which the Army will eventually phase out of its inventory, said Exantus. The Hercules is the primary recovery vehicle for the M1 Abrams Tank. Larger than the M88A1, the Hercules has a larger cab and a more powerful engine with improved towing, winching and hoisting capabilities. It also has an improved arPHOTO BY T.

Lee to Offer Military Sport Bike Course by Amy Perry Production/News Assistant Editor
Fort Lee will offer specialized training for sport bike ke riders, starting at the end of July. The Motorcycle orcycle Safety Foundation Military tary Sport Bike Rider Course was developed in close collaboration ollaboration with the Army and Navy Motorcycle Safety Education and d Training Safety Centers, said Edward Newell, Fort Lee safety and occupational nal health specialist..

In addition, riders should attend sustainment training every three years after completing the MSRC, which is an Army mandate found in AR 385-10. “The course consists of approximately three hours of classroom interactive lessons and approximately four hours of on-cycle range time,” said Newell. “The classroom segment focuses on behavioral aspects of riding such as attitude and personal risk assessment, and includes discussions about braking proficiency, cornering techniques, traction management, and specific characteristics unique to sport bikes. The goal is to provide riders with a way to further develop personal riding strategies to minimize risk, with particular emphasis on the SearchEvaluate-Execute strategy.” The range session builds on these topics by providing riders the opportunity to develop and improve skills in braking, cornering and swerving, said Newell. Included is a demonstration of the components of total stopping distance and

Your dream car: â€œFerrari â€“ a 2004 F430.â€? Worst fear: â€œFailing.â€? Talent: â€œMy compassion.â€? Dream vacation: â€œHawaii.â€? One life-changing event: â€œWhen my father died (I was 13). I went from having a father to no father. I basically had to be the man of the house, be an example for my brother and that made me grow up faster. I didnâ€™t have the luxury of having a perfect household. I had to grow up and take on a lot of responsibility, quickly.â€?

I joined the Army to give the service members who have had backto-back deployments a break. I ÂżJXUHG,FDQVWHSLQ,FRXOGJR and then they could stay.â€?
Did the Army fulďŹ ll your initial expectations? â€œNo. I thought it would be more of a brotherhood because weâ€™re such a unique group that takes care of one another, but I really donâ€™t see that any more.â€? Best thing about the Army: â€œItâ€™s always about progression. The Army is structured to make you progress, and itâ€™s up to you if you want to progress. Thatâ€™s a good thing.â€? Worst thing about the Army: â€œItâ€™s becoming too lenient. I think we are lowering standards. It makes me feel that a person who is doing right, a person who might have messed up and a person who is just messing up are all equal â€“ until you somehow set yourself apart. I think you take the person who is doing good and those who are on the right track over the ones who arenâ€™t doing good;
you donâ€™t let them in. Thatâ€™s my opinion.â€? What it really means to be a Soldier: â€œYouâ€™re here for a reason, and that reason is to protect the nation. To do that, you are held to so many standards, and you have to maintain them. With that, you get structure, you get education â€“ all these great things â€“ so you have to basically be a role model.â€? What you would change if you were Army chief of staff: â€œThe uniform.

spirit of baseball and show its appreciation of the local military community by offering complimentary tickets to games throughout this month. The Petersburg Generals Baseball Club is offering free admission for military personnel and their Families (valid military identification required) at all home games for the remainder of the season. The Generals play several times each week as a member of the Coastal Plain League, which features 14 teams from Virginia and the Carolinas. The Petersburg team is comprised of accomplished college-level athletes looking for a spot in the major leagues. Seventy players have advanced since 2000 when the Generals joined the CPL. This season looks like another strong one with the team in contention for a league title. On July 14, the ballpark will celebrate
Military Appreciation Night with a special opening tribute to all service members in the Tri-City Area. That will be followed by the contest between the Generals and the Edenton Steamers out of North Carolina. All home games also feature post-event fireworks. The Generalsâ€™ other home games include the following: Friday, 7:05 p.m., versus the Martinsville Mustangs Tuesday, 7:05 p.m., versus the Morehead City Marlins Wednesday, 7:05 p.m., versus the Gastonia Grizzlies July 13, 7:05 p.m., versus the Peninsula Pilots July 16, 7:05 p.m., versus the Wilson Tobs July 18, 7:05 p.m., versus the Fayetteville Swampdogs
July 20, 7:05 p.m., versus the Wilson Tobs July 25, 7:05 p.m., versus the Wilmington Sharks July 26, 7:05 p.m., versus the Edenton Steamers July 29, 4:05 p.m., versus the Peninsula Pilots July 30, 7:05 p.m., versus the Morehead City Marlins The Generals play at the Petersburg Sports Complex located at 100 Ballpark Road, Petersburg. Gates open one hour before game time. Service members seeking free admission are asked to arrive at least 30 minutes early. Platoon or company-sized groups are welcome, and the team encourages them to attend in uniform. For details, call (804) 722-0141 or visit www.generals.petersburgsports.com.

Shoplifting, Costs Up at Fort Lee PX DALLAS – According to the National Association for Shoplifting Prevention, losses due to thefts from retail stores alone amount to more than $35 million a day. The Army and Air Force Exchange Service, which has contributed more than $2.4 billion to morale, welfare and recreation programs in the past 10 years, continues to focus its efforts on reducing theft to maximize the investment authorized shoppers make in their Exchange benefit. Despite an aggressive youth “Shoplifting Awareness Community Outreach” program, closed circuit televisions with DVR technology and high-tech Electronic Article Surveillance, shoplifting at the Fort Lee Exchange increased 37 percent last year, from 73 incidents in 2010 to 100. The value of merchandise involved in local loss prevention cases also increased from $5,027.62 in 2010 to $6,646.81. “Despite our proactive, and visible, efforts to prevent shoplifting, the end result was an increase in both incidents and the total value of items stolen,” said General Manager Audrey Alston. “Of course, the toll of this issue goes far beyond dollars and cents as theft can be detrimental to a military career. Every shoplifting incident that is prevented before it occurs benefits not only the individual but also our installation and Exchange.” If shoplifting is suspected, the Fort Lee Exchange Loss Prevention Office turns the issue over to local law enforcement. In addition to possible disciplinary action and/ or criminal prosecution, the Federal Claims Collection Act allows the Exchange to enact a flat, administrative cost (Civil Recovery) of $200. There may be further fees in addition to the Civil Recovery Program, depending on the condition of the stolen merchandise. To find out more about the Exchange history and mission or to view recent press releases, visit the website at www.shopmyexchange.com.
MILITARY VETERANS LIKE DOMINION LINEMAN DEVON MCFADDEN ARE REMOVING ONE PROUDLY WORN UNIFORM FOR ANOTHER. Supporting our military—when they’re abroad and when they come home—is an important part of who we are. That’s one of the reasons we’ve helped pilot the national Troops to Energy Jobs program, which links military veterans to jobs inthe energy sector. We’re proud that ourcompany’s commitment to service members and their families was recognized when we received the Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award—the highest honor given tocompanies employing military veterans. It’s also led to Dominion being named a “Top 100 Military Friendly Employer” three years in a row. But what we’re most proud of are the dedicated men and women who’ve served our country so bravely. We’re honored to stand behind them—and work beside them.

Hands-on Love for Strays
PHOTO BY KATHRYN C. WEIGEL
Breann Hollister, left, Robina Wahl, and her step-daughters Cadance, center, and Natalie, shower a stray dog with affection June 25 at the Fort Lee Stray Animal Facility.
Volunteers at the Fort Lee Stray Animal Facility provide the kind of loving attention that helps pets living there maintain their family-friendly disposition. The facility has an on-going need for volunteers, both from permanent party personnel and students and their Family members. Robina Wahl, the wife of 1st Lt. Ronold Wahl III with Headquarters and Headquarters Co., 530th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, found herself being recruited to help at the facility when she stopped by looking for a Family cat that had escaped from their quarters. “It’s been fun coming here,” she said. “I feel like I’m making the animals happy.” Her husband sometimes spends his lunch break lending a hand with the animals at the facility. Breann Hollister, whose husband Capt. Joe Hollister is a student in the Captains Career Course at Army Logistics University, worked at a humane society while they were stationed
at Fort Eustis before coming to Fort Lee. She hopes to continue working in the animal welfare field professionally when they move to a new duty station later this year. Hollister, who has two dogs at home, fosters dogs from the shelter and helps with administrative tasks from home in addition to working at the facility a couple of days a week. Hollister noted that fostering pets and volunteering at the shelter are ways to spend time with more animals without increasing the number of pets owned by a Family. These activities can also help a Family gauge whether children are ready to care for pets of their own. Volunteers can be foster parents to facility residents, help with feeding and exercising them or pitch in wherever their interests and talents lie, said Mike Johnson, post game warden. For information about becoming a volunteer, call Johnson at (804) 652-5979. – Staff Reports

Managing Acute, Chronic Pain by Dr. Mark Lasky Physician, Active Duty Clinic
Pain is the most frequent reason patients seek medical care in the U.S. Greater than 50 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. It is a $100 billion problem including health care expenses, lost income and lost productivity in Americans under the age of 45. But what is pain and how does one manage it? In a military culture that praises selflessness, toughness and willingness to accept pain, the “no pain no gain” philosophy is embraced by much of the active duty force. This attitude often causes delays in seeking treatment; a military member attempts to suffer the pain and “toughs it out.” This often results in minor acute pain later becoming harder-to-treat chronic pain. Pain is a disease of the nervous system and should be considered not a symptom but a disease state. Pain is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage. It is always subjective and may be acute or chronic. Acute pain is a normal physiological process usually time limited to a noxious stimulus that enhances survival by warning the individual of impending or potential injury or progression of disease. Chronic pain continues beyond the normal time expected for healing and is associated with changes in the central nervous system.
Since chronic pain serves no useful purpose, it may be considered a chronic disease process. We are all aware of the pain scale rating when military members are screened for a pain complaint. This is the common 0-10 Defense and Veterans Rating Scale. This pain-rating scale is being replaced by a newer pain scale with supplemental questions about activity, mood, level of stress and sleep. As mentioned earlier, the military culture is one of mental toughness and sacrifice. Newer military thinking is that pain either acute or chronic should be treated aggressively and that the old saying to “suck it up” when it comes to pain is obsolete. Most pain in the military is treat-
“WE MEET BY ACCIDENT”
ed with OTC meds and analgesics such as Ibuprofen or other NSAIDS. More serious pain is treated with opioids, but as is well known, the incidence of opioid abuse is on the rise in our culture. In 2008, some 22 percent of service members admitted to opiod abuse, not usage. There are some military members who function well and who have been on opioids for the treatment of chronic pain for long periods of time but for whom the medication has ceased to relieve their pain. Some continue to take the Vicodin or Percocet and are fearful of withdrawal symptoms that result in difficulty with concentration and irritability. They may have a good home life with normal Family/spouse relationships. Many military members suffering from chronic opioid usage where the med has stopped working may not need a formal substance dependant treatment program. They will need an office-based setting with close monitoring and appropriate pain medication with primary care support. Over time they may be tapered off their opioid therapy. In summary, it is most important that Soldiers come to the ADC for treatment of acute pain and not “suck it up.” Most opioid use is short term for severe pain and it is unusual that service members become addicted to opioids with short-term use.

Jane Clayborne, right, a sexual assault victim advocate from the James House Intervention/ Prevention Services Inc., discusses the issues of sexual and domestic violence, stalking and other crimes that happen to both men and women in Virginia. The recent talk was part of a Sexual Harassment or Assault Response and Prevention “Meet and Greet,” hosted by the 23rd Quartermaster Brigade. More than 35 Soldiers, all current or new SHARP trainers and victim advocates, attended the session. Pictured to the left of Clayborne is Chaplain (Capt.) Keith Andrews, who would be among the first responders to a sexual assault incident within the brigade. Also discussed at the meeting were the annual SHARP training requirements, the specifics about restricted and unrestricted reporting, case management and the overall goals of the program.
Bowling to Benefit BBBS Kimberly K. Fritz Family/Community Life Reporter
Students enrolled in Florida Institute of Technology classes at the Army Logistics University have teamed up with the Richmond and Tri-Cities Big Brothers and Big Sisters to bring a site-based program to the youth of Fort Lee. An event at the Fort Lee Bowling Center will kick-off the program in the community. Bowl for Kids’ Sake is set for 11 a.m. - 3 p.m., July 14. The cost is $10 per person and includes two games and shoe rental. Organizers hope to kick-start the Big Brothers and Big Sisters program that will match mentors with military youth. The program is the brain-child of the Florida Institute of Technology’s masters program class. Erika Collins, one of the event organizers, explained Bowl
for Kids’ Sake is the first step in a process begun last year as a class research project. “Last semester, the class conducted research that led us to BBBS, and now we are executing our plan,” Collins said. “We’ve been working with Army Volunteer Program Coordinator Susan Loden, who shared the idea of bringing BBBS to Fort Lee with the garrison command team. We are excited to be working together to bring young community members and mentors together.” Chris Beach, director of BBBS Richmond and Tri-Cities, said beginning in August a BBBS representative will be placed in the Army Family Advocacy office to support the program on Fort Lee. “We are hoping our bowling event raises awareness about the program and brings in potential mentors,” he said. For more information about Bowl for Kids’ Sake, call (804) 765-8895 or 414-1772.

Larry, Moe, Curly? This trio of gray kittens at the Fort Lee Stray Animal Facility may just turn out to be Larissa, Moereen and Curlie – when they are old enough to be sure about their gender. They are about 6 weeks old and are among pets currently up for adoption at building 11027. The fee is $45. Check the facility’s Facebook page for other animals. For details, call (804) 652-5979.
EMO Tip of the Week Every year, Americans produce millions of tons of leaf and grass clippings, a lot of it ending up in landfills. In most cases, leaving the grass on your lawn is much friendlier to the environment. As the clippings decompose, they actually make the soil healthier. Remember, at Fort Lee if you pick up lawn clippings, they must be placed in clear plastic bags before you set them by the dumpsters. This is so the lawn clippings can be recycled into compost. “Protecting the Land We Defend” – USAG Fort Lee Mission Integration/Environmental Management System

Program Sets Soldiers Up For Civilian Success by Sgt. 1st Class Kelly Jo Bridgwater U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command
FORT EUSTIS – The Army’s Training and Doctrine Command is responsible for teaching roughly 150 military Occupational Specialties to enlisted Soldiers using 15 schools across eight locations providing nearly 200,000 Army professionals each year with opportunities to become experts in their fields. TRADOC and the Army are increasing their efforts to help Soldiers take those skills with them – through credentials, earned with their military training and experience – when they leave the serviceand compete for jobs in the civilian sector. “The knowledge, skills and abilities Soldiers possess are very valuable and marketable to civilian employers,” said Brig. Gen. Pete Utley TRADOC’s deputy chief of staff for operations and training. “What we are trying to do is work with civilian credentialing agencies and TRADOC schools to identify credentialing opportunities for more MOSs.” At a June 12 roundtable meeting in Washington hosted by the American Legion with the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civilian Personnel and Quality of Life Tony Stamilio, representatives from TRADOC and civilian credentialing agencies gathered to discuss how to achieve appropriate recognition of military training and experience through credentialing programs. During the meeting, Stamilio stated each year between 80,000 and 100,000 Soldiers leave the Army after learning skills provided by Army schools. “We need to make sure we do all we can to support our Soldiers who have served and fought in war,” said Stamilio, who believes another benefit of credentialing is to “further professionalize the force” while helping the Army to “fill gaps and improve training.” In particular, the Army is looking at 10 MOSs that have a high volume and high unemployment rate. “The guidance is to consider all MOSs, but we need to

Tool Helps to Create Individual Development Plan FORT EUSTIS – Are you an Army Soldier, officer or government civilian who has an individual development plan, or IDP, due in the near future? If so, you may be interested to know about the newly developed step-by-step navigation tool called the Army Career Tracker that can help create an IDP in a few simple steps. “ACT provides an easy-to-use interface with supporting technology, which assists the user and supervisor with the creation, approval and tracking of the IDP,” said Khadijah Sellers, who works with the Training and Doctrine Command’s
Institute for Noncommissioned Officer Professional Development on streamlining the IDP process within ACT. According to Sellers, the IDP provides a cross-functional approach to integrating a Soldier’s personal and professional development and is focused through the lens of lifelong learning. Sgt. 1st Class Kenneth Williams, career management NCO for the Office of the Chief of Transportation at Fort Lee, said it’s important for leaders to motivate their Soldiers to use the ACT and develop their IDPs. “The fact is it’s not enough to dream
about promotions, schools and desired positions -- you have to plan a course of action to achieve those goals,” Williams said. “I try to promote the use of ACT in every professional development briefing that I give. I tell Soldiers that ACT can help them succeed, and their IDP will give them the necessary steps to achieve their goals.” Not only does Williams encourage his Soldiers to use ACT to develop their IDPs, he uses it for his own development as well. “One of the best things about creating my IDP is that it is individually tailored to my personal goals,” he said. “I can always
refer back to my IDP on the ACT site so I can learn and develop new ways to be more effective in my job.” Williams said creating an IDP through ACT is pretty simple. “When I created my IDP, I used resources that are available on the ACT site for career development such as the Professional Development Model, the Army Training Requirements and Resources System, and Credentialing Opportunities On-Line. If I had a question about a school or a position, the answers are usually hyperlinked and SEE IDP PAGE 24

give a thorough explanation after clicking on a link.â€? IDPs are formed by setting long- and short-term goals in ACT, where the information is automatically populated into the IDP by selecting recommendations based upon the Professional Development Model as IDP goals. These goals can be populated from recommendations for assignment, institutional training, structured self-development, guided self-development, certifications, credentialing and a host of other training resources provided within ACT. â€œIDPs can be win-win strategies because they benefit both the Soldier and the organization,â€? Sellers said. â€œSoldiers benefit because implementing an IDP helps them to enhance their knowledge, skills and experiences. Improved competencies help them achieve personal and career goals both inside and outside the organization. The organization benefits from developing improved Soldier knowledge and abilities.â€? Sellers added that the most significant impact for Soldiers having the ability to create their IDP within the ACT is the access to the wealth of information. For new Soldiers, the process allows them to outline their career from their first permanent duty station and to chart a course
establishing the qualifications needed for careers in the civilian sector when they transition out of the Army. Individuals are able to select degree programs and certifications to add to their IDPs. For example, a Soldier who would like to start his or her own business when transitioning out of the Army can select a bachelorâ€™s degree program for management studies offered by a university.

Provost Marshal Office Issues Seat Belt, Cell Phone Reminders by Rico Williams Provost Marshal Office
In recent months, there has been a significant increase in the number of people not wearing seatbelts while driving on the installation. Research has shown that in Virginia, when lap and shoulder seat belts are used properly, the risk of fatal injury to front seat passengers is reduced by 45 percent and the risk of moderate-tocritical injury is reduced by 65 percent. Additionally, there has been an increase in using cell phones without a hands-free device while driving. In some cases, individuals have been seen simultaneously violating both policies. Failure to
use restraint devices or hands-free devices while driving are violations in accordance with CASCOM & FL Regulation 190-5 and both can result in the loss of installation driving privileges. The duration of suspension of privileges increases with each violation and could result in the permanent loss of driving privileges on the installation. Failure to wear a seat belt can result in an automatic 30-day suspension of driving privileges. A second violation can bring 90 days of suspended driving privileges and, for a third violation, a 120-day suspension could be imposed. If people are seen driving and using their cell phones on the installation without a handsfree device, their base
driving privileges can be suspended for 10 days for the first violation A second violation can result in a 30day suspension and 60 days for a third violation. In addition, drivers will receive three points on their driving record for each occurrence. In accordance with CASCOM & FL Regulation, if a driver accumulates 12 points in a one-year period, his or her driving privileges on the installation will be suspended for six months. Due to the increase of reported violations, law enforcement, in conjunction with traffic safety, will be increasing selective enforcement activities. Any individual in violation will be cited and issued a US District Court Violation Notice.
