Whether it’s helping to measure ingredients, tearing or cutting produce to mix for a salad, or using cutters to shape a fun-to-eat sandwich (you’ll find cutters specific for that purpose on the bread aisle), your children will build self-confidence by doing things that they see are important for the family meal and you’ll get to spend quality time with them.

COVER

Good nutrition is a family affair, whether one member has a few pounds to lose or if everyone just wants to have good health and the energy to do the activities they love. There are a number of things you can do to engage your family in food-related matters so that meals and snacks can be both nutritious and delicious. A great place to start is with ChooseMyPlate.gov. Regardless of age, everyone should think about how important it is to regularly select foods from all five of the food groups. A fun activity could be for the family to sit down and plan a week’s menu for all of the meals that are going to be eaten at home. Everyone could have a favorite choice within the week, and planning a menu creates a perfect opportunity to ask “What vegetable would go best with this meal: carrots or broccoli?” or “Should we drink a glass of milk or have some yogurt for dessert as our dairy serving?” It’s important to let your children participate in decision-making during the menu planning process to encourage their “buy-in” when it comes time to sit down to eat din-

roll pan to catch any spills. And, keeping recipes simple so they can be prepared from start to finish by the younger members of the family will make it more likely that they will want to do it again. One more thing that is important to remember is that it can take multiple times serving a new food before it is accepted, even as many as 8-10 attempts or more. Repeated serving of a food leads to familiarity, which is often what drives the choices of young children, but this can also help a parent learn to like a food that is new to them as well. Parents need to understand that any initial rejection of a food shown by their child is normal behavior, and that children can learn to accept and enjoy new foods by having enough opportunities to experience them. Context is also important as children are exposed to new foods. Even small children sense their parent’s perspective on a food based on the nature of their interaction. Be sure to create an encouraging feeding environment so that the child has the intended positive association with a new food experience.

THE

of

ner, but within healthy parameters that parents establish. An additional benefit of menu planning is that it can help to streamline your grocery shopping because – going hand in hand with planning the menu – you’ll prepare a shopping list from the recipes needed to create those dishes. Staying on track with a shopping list can help you avoid impulse purchases that might not be as healthful and add extra costs to your trip to the Commissary. Parents modeling healthy food behaviors are key to ensuring children develop good nutrition habits. Choosing a fruit, vegetable or whole grain serving as part of your snack shows your child this is something you enjoy and they are likely to enjoy as well. One way to guarantee that fruits and vegetables are the preferred snack choice is to have plenty of brightly colored produce washed, cut and ready to eat, and placed at the right height in the refrigerator or on the counter to be within easy reach. Another way to ensure that snack time is a time for good nutrition is to let your child pick between healthy choices, such as apple wedges with peanut butter or a cheese stick and whole grain crackers. Getting your children involved with meal preparation as much as is

ON

Capt. Lisa A. Reid Joint Culinary Center Excellence

Finally, rewarding your child for eating a particular food or forcing them to eat beyond their hunger are behaviors that are not healthful. Don’t create negative associations with certain foods by telling your child that they can have or do something that is highly desirable, if “they’ll just eat their (insert food choice) first.” Parents should not be overly restrictive of their children’s access to highly palatable foods (likely to be higher in fat and/or sugar) either, because this can also lead to a “forbidden” food becoming especially attractive to your child. Children have a surprising ability to self-regulate their intake to ensure healthy growth and development without parental influence, if they are provided a diverse and healthful diet. Research has shown an inverse relationship between a child’s ability to regulate their energy intake and the amount of parental control imposed during a meal. A parent’s disregard for their child’s hunger and satiety cues has the potential to result in excess calorie intake and subsequent overweight if the practice persists over an extended period, and also teaches the child to respond to external rather than internal eating cues. The important things for the family to remember when it comes to healthy eating, are that there have to be adequate opportunities to eat healthful choices of a variety of foods. Regular mealtimes that are positive experiences shared by all family members can build healthy eating behaviors that may last a lifetime.

The opportunity to observe and discuss training with students, instructors and leaders at the Sustainment Center of Excellence here April 18 gave Under Secretary of the Army Joseph W. Westphal, Ph.D., a new perspective of war-fighter logisticians. “It definitely put a very big accent mark on it,” Westphal said after a daylong tour of maintenance bays, virtual simulators, classrooms and kitchens. “Here, you see it all come together – the blending of it, the jointness, the rigors of training. I gained a true appreciation for how the Combined Arms Support Command contributes to the sustainment community and supports our warfighters.”

8QGHUVHFUHWDU\DFNQRZOHGJHV ¶JDPHFKDQJLQJ·DFKLHYHPHQWV Under Secretary of the Army Joseph W. Westphal recognized the superior performance of seven military and civilian workers during a brief April 18 ceremony in front of the U.S. Army Women’s Museum here. The presentation culminated a day-long tour that gave the under secretary an up-close look at the various training activities here and the mission of CASCOM’s Sustainment Center of Excellence. Sgt. 1st Class Devera Martin,

the noncommissioned officer in charge of CASCOM’s Deployment and Deployment Systems Department, was among the “game changers” who received a command coin from Westphal. She was lauded for several accomplishments, to include applying her transportation technical skills to “spearhead an 88N (transportation management coordinator) program of instruction review” to improve the relevance of the training. She also developed a training exercise dubbed

“Traffic Thunder Express.” Other awardees and examples of their many accomplishments are as follows: Francoise Bonnell, U.S. Army Women’s Museum director, completed her doctorate degree in philosophy, wrote a book and served as a subject matter expert for a PBS documentary. Susan Troendle, Explosive Ordnance Disposal Directorate training division chief, Ordnance School, served as her department’s lead for a TRADOC ac-

on the Ordnance Campus, a parachute packing demonstration at the Aerial Delivery Field Service Department, a taste of the cuisine prepared by students at the Joint Culinary Center of Excellence, a tour of the U.S. Army Women’s Museum and more. Describing himself as a “hands-on kind of guy,” Westphal said he appreciated the opportunity to meet military instructors and students face-to-face. It helps him identify “critical components” like the quality of Army training and the satisfaction of Soldiers. “I was taken by the seriousness of the students in these programs,” he said. “What I see is their focus and dedication to what they’re doing and what they’re learning. It’s easy to tell they’re committed and the instructors are terrific. You can tell there’s a high level of experience and dedication here.” Westphal praised CASCOM’s credentialing program that allows service members to obtain commercial qualifications and licensing in a growing number of technical fields ranging from motor

creditation assessment that resulted in an “Institute of Excellence” rating. She also played a direct role in the establishment of a new EOD Platoon Leaders Course at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. Master Sgt. Jose Medina, 92Y unit supply specialist senior enlisted career manager, served as the Quartermaster School’s representative for a Property Accountability Military Training Team that improved accountability and unit readiness Army-wide. Master Sgt. David Faughnan, senior clinical noncommissioned officer at Kenner Army Health Clinic, helped build and format a Fort Lee “Medical Readiness Dashboard” that is now used to track trends and drive post-wide

vehicle repair, machining and welding, to heavy equipment operators and food service. He referred to it as a “superb example of taking care of Soldiers” from both a professional development standpoint and for preparing them to transition into the civilian job market. “This visit provides me greater understanding of how all of these aspects of logistics and the schools are integrated, and how they’ll posture our Army for future requirements. Now, what I want to do is help build on this and emphasize the need to support it better.” As the visit concluded, Westphal also shared his thoughts about issues that he and other Army leaders are currently facing. Acknowledging that budget-constraints threaten military readiness, he vowed that the Army is focused on “keeping the faith” with Soldiers, their families and civilian employees. “We are not going to walk away from the Army community,” he said. “We SEE TOUR, PAGE 10

Anderson, chief of the Environmental Management Office, oversaw the development of an EMO application for Smart Phones and led an initiative that increased the installation’s solid waste diversion rate to a current average of 76 percent, resulting in a savings of $6.9 million. Jennifer Gilliam, an instructor for the Instructional Design Basic Course at ALU, incorporated the use of Blackboard software into her program of instruction and greatly improved classroom performance and collaboration. She also led several “lunch and learn” sessions that were cited as a “best practice” by TRADOC.

Fire facility gets renovation, to reopen soon T. Anthony Bell Senior Writer

The Quartermaster School’s Fire Training Facility has undergone more than $600,000 worth of renovations and is scheduled to reopen within the next month. The training area, operated by the Petroleum and Water Department, was closed for construction in late November. It is primarily used in the Petroleum Supply Specialist Course and is the site where advanced individual train-

ing students learn basic fire fighting techniques. It is located near the PWD headquarters building on 38th Street. CalvinCropper,Petroleum Training Facility manager, said the renovations will allow more students to train at the same time. “The facility has been enhanced with the capability to train three classes simultaneously,” he said. Before the renovations, the facility consisted of one fire fighting station. The current facility features two additional fire

As a result of the improvements, all students will be provided the opportunity to undergo the training, said Cropper, noting that scheduling and class sizes often dic-

tated the availability of training in the past. “I know for a fact this is a big improvement, and the Soldiers should get a lot out of this for years to come,” he said.

A ribbon cutting is planned to reopen the facility. There were no details on whether the facility will be dedicated or to whom it will be dedicated when it is reopened, said Cropper.

Christian musician Danny Byram sings a military tribute song titled “Brothers In Arms” during the Prayer Breakfast. Byram also led audience sing-alongs for the “Star Spangled Banner,” “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” and “America the Beautiful.”

About 300 Fort Lee community members attended the 2013 National Day of Prayer Breakfast observance Tuesday morning at the Lee Club. Organized by the Religious Support Office here, the event featured music by Danny Byram, a Christian singer/songwriter who has produced 11 albums and performed at more than 100 military installations around the world. The keynote address was given by retired Maj. Gen. Bob Dees, a 30-year Army veteran whose previous assignments include stints as the 2nd Infantry Division commander in South Korea and deputy commanding general of V Corps in Europe. He and his wife, Kathleen, currently serve on the board of directors for the Association of Christian Conferences and Teaching Services and the International Association for Evangelical Chaplains. Dee’s talk reflected the central theme of the breakfast – resiliency. “Let’s look at it in terms of logistics,” he said. “You can live for months without food. You can live for days without water. You can live for seconds without hope. “That’s one of the realities of faith, resiliency and hope. And frankly, as we look at our suicide epidemic in the military and our national suicide epidemic, the primary challenge is that people lose hope. They lose the ability to hold on 10 seconds longer. They lose their courage and it’s easier to go in the other direction.” Dees encouraged military leaders and others in the audience to be “messengers of hope.” He concluded with a challenge to those in attendance. “How about us … are we going to be hopeful people or are we going to live in despair. Which bookend are we? We all have the choice, and may we choose hope because it does not disappoint.” - Staff Reports

Local civic and government leaders voiced their opinions on proposed force restructuring – which could reduce the number of military and Army Civilian personnel on Fort Lee by 2,400 – during an April 17 Community Listening Session hosted by Maj. Gen. Larry Wyche, commanding general of Combined Arms Support Command and Fort Lee. The proposed reduction appeared in a Programmatic Environmental Assessment released in January, which evaluated the environmental and socioeconomic impacts of potential force restructuring. The Army must realign and reduce its active duty population by 80,000 by the end of fiscal 2017, as required by Department of Defense implementation of the

Budget Control Act of 2011 and current National Defense Strategy. As part of the process, Army leaders are considering community input in order to make informed decisions and mitigate the impact on areas surrounding affected military installations. “We realize that there’s a great partnership between the military and civilian communities, and that’s why it’s so important that we come out and do these listening sessions to actually hear your concerns – things that have not been captured in the formal processes that have taken place thus far,” said Col. Edward DeShields, Force Structure Programs Officer from Department of Army, G-3, who traveled from Washington, D.C., to help facilitate the meeting. Crater Planning District Commission Executive

Director Dennis Morris said his organization disagrees with the Army finding that the proposed reductions at Fort Lee would have no significant local impact. “From an economic standpoint, Fort Lee currently accounts for oneseventh of the region’s total economy with an impact estimated at $2.4 billion annually,” Morris said, explaining that if Army recommendations regarding Fort Lee are fully implemented, the lost wages in the regional economy could total $160 million annually. “In addition, 1,000 jobs could be lost outside the gates of Fort Lee. These losses have direct and palpable physical impacts in the region.” William Robertson, chairman of the Prince George County Board of Supervisors, said his com-

munity is still paying for transportation and school projects undertaken in support of the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure actions that greatly increased the size of Fort Lee’s population.

“Remember, it was the Army who came to us a few years ago and asked us to step forward and provide infrastructure and support for BRAC,” he said. “Now, just a few years later since we have done that – we’ve put the bonds out there, we’ve put money out there – now you’re talking about reducing force. We still have those bonds that we have to pay off.” Robertson also expressed concern over the negative economic impact to hotels and other commercial businesses. “As we prepared for the BRAC expansion, private investment was made to support the mission of Fort Lee,” he said. “A force reduction will mean lower occupancy rates, less revenue and a reduction in tax collection.” Hopewell Mayor Michael Bujakowski said the post is critical to his city. “Like

other localities, we have changed our priorities,” he said. “We have reallocated funds from one project to another to try to serve the needs of Fort Lee.” Similarly, Petersburg Mayor Brian Moore described Fort Lee as “key to the economic revitalization that’s happening in Petersburg.” Retired Lt. Gen. David Weisman, civilian aide to the Secretary of the Army for Virginia, pointed out that a tremendous investment was made in BRAC consolidations at Fort Lee, which now trains 36 percent of the Soldiers in the Army. “I think doing anything now to close it down would have a detrimental effect not only on the Army, but a tremendous impact on this community,” he said. Wyche assured local leaders that their voices had been heard and their comments would be relayed to senior Army leadership. “I promised you as I took command about 10 months ago that we will work hard to be very transparent, and that’s one of the reasons we’re here today,” he said. “We will continue to work hard at that.”

Most young parents are so caught up in the numerous day-to-day activities of raising their children they fail to consider what would happen if they weren’t there to care for their young ones. Who would step in to fill the void if both parents died? Most assume their parents would do so. However, with two potential sets of grandparents possibly wanting to raise the grandchildren, who decides? Without a will to designate the guardianship of the children upon the death of the parents, the family court with jurisdiction over the children will decide guardianship. The family court would apply a determination of guardianship in the “best interests” of the child or children. That does not mean that the guardian selected would be the guardians the parents would have designated. In order for deceased parents to have a say in who raises their minor children, they must designate their chosen guardians in a will. It is preferable for parents to agree on the guardians to prevent future litigation

where the two parents select two different guardians. Furthermore, parents should consider the age, abilities and maturity of those guardians they select to raise their children. Most assume that their parents did a great job of raising them, so why not have their parents raise their children without accounting for age, infirmity and other factors that may prevent their parents from serving as the better guardian. Sometimes, where older or infirmed parents are an issue, parents seeking suitable guardians should consider siblings and other younger relatives as suitable guardians. Everyone should consider having a will. Young parents especially should consider having a will to determine who will take control of their most prized “possessions” – their children. Should you need a will or have any questions regarding your legal matters, please make an appointment with an attorney at the Legal Assistance Office, (804) 765-1500. –Fort Lee Legal Office

TOUR | Under secretary visits Fort Lee Continued from page 3 will not undermine key programs that support our Soldiers and their families. “Our Army has gone through some complex and tough combat operations over the past 11 years, and it has brought hardships like multiple deployments and health issues,” Westphal continued. “If we don’t take care of our Soldiers now, it’s like a wound that doesn’t heal right. It doesn’t take care of itself; we have got to make sure we take care of it. So this is a very important commitment that the Secretary of the Army, and all Army leaders, has made.” Westphal said the civilian workforce should be just as aware of rebalancing and restructuring as their counterparts in uniform. He discussed how the dramatic

growth of the military over the past 11 years extended into the non-uniformed population, and because of budget limits and the need to restructure, the resizing of the civilian force will have to keep pace. “Up front, I would say that our commitment to growing the quality of the civilian workforce is stronger than it has ever been before,” Westphal said. “We’ve initiated efforts to ensure the sustainability of a top-notch workforce through educational development and career opportunities. I am as committed to investing as much in a civilian employee’s professional development as I am in investing in a Soldier’s professional development.” The key to a strong workforce, he also noted, is attracting the right people

from both the military and civilian sectors. Opening job opportunities to those outside of the military community is important, Westphal said. He wants the Army to recruit talented minds and aggressive, innovative and “out-of-the-box thinkers.” “We can’t limit ourselves to folks who are inside the Army,” he said. “That’s why I’m pushing hard to change some of the ways we’re doing business. Also, we have to embrace our diversity. Right out here in front of the museum, I just talked to some folks (during a gamechanger award presentation) who represent our broad and rich diversity. It’s incredible and it reflects the make-up of our country. Let’s continue to embrace our commitment to opening opportunities for all to participate and rise to the highest levels

of the civilian workforce as well as the highest levels of the military.” Offering kudos to the Women’s Museum for its impressive collection of artifacts and displays that tell the story of female Soldiers throughout Army history, Westphal said it’s also a testament to the contributions of female Soldiers and their vital role in the Army’s success. “Now, we’re expanding opportunities for female service members. There will be struggles, but we’ve got to keep it up, and part of it is opening that aperture for hiring the best qualified people regardless of gender and offering the best career advancement opportunities we can.” Westphal then shared a thought about the contributions of the Army to the nation and the challenges that lie ahead.

“The unshakeable fact is that the Army is the one true thing this country can count on for almost anything, and it has always been that way,” he said. “We just saw another example of it in Boston with National Guardsmen running to take care of people even though it meant putting their lives on the line. They didn’t know what else was going to blow up, but they knew they were needed and they were there. Those Guardsmen deserve a lot of praise for their efforts. “And Soldiers do that all the time for us all around the world,” he continued. “Our Soldiers, no matter what job they’re asked to do, are prepared. So, I think we’re a high-quality organization all the way around. But there’s still the fact that we’re evolving, we’re changing, the world is changing. And the way in which the Army will be used in the future will be

far different than the way it was in the past because of technology and because of the way society is changing. “So, I think we’re in that period where we’re taking a very hard look at how we modernize the force; how we educate and train the force to address those new and evolving challenges of the future,” he concluded. “Are we going to be doing more in aviation? More in space? How heavy will the Army need to be? What’s the right ratio of reserve component to active? How do you keep a reserve component trained and ready? How do you ensure that your Army is always trained and ready? So, all of those are the challenges of the future and we are working very methodically to address them and ensure that we will always be prepared to answer our nation’s call.”


([FKDQJH RIIHUVFDUHHU RSSRUWXQLWLHV DALLAS - While many businesses across the nation are launching new efforts to hire veterans, the Army and Air Force Exchange Service simply continues a practice that has existed for more than 117 years – providing career opportunities for veterans and their families. In fact, 10 percent of the Exchange’s workforce is comprised of veterans. Military spouses and family members account for another 24 percent. With more than 40,000 jobs, the Exchange is doing its part not only to employ veterans and military spouses, but also provide opportunities. “The Exchange doesn’t just hire current and former members of the military community – we offer careers in service and support,” said the Exchange’s Chief of Staff Col. Thomas Ockenfels. “It’s just a natural fit. Veterans, spouses and dependents know our customers better than anyone.” Uniting with the Military Spouse Employment Partnership, Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve and the Wounded Warrior Project, there are currently 4,196 veteran associates working for the Exchange. In 2013, the goal is to increase veteran management hires by 33 percent from 2012. Additionally, partnerships with the Operation Warfighter Program and Feds Hire Vets initiative give the Exchange increased visibility. Veterans can also apply for the Exchange’s “Detail to Retail” management trainee programs, which are designed to train various levels of retail management.

Twenty officers from the Army Logistics University Captain’s Career Course answered a nationwide call for solidarity runs in support of the Boston Marathon during a physical training session here Friday morning. They wore t-shirts from the national Team Red, White and Blue organization, a nonprofit group dedicated to the support of veterans through social and sporting events. This week, the officers participated in the American Odyssey Relay race from Gettysburg, Pa., to Washington D.C. Look for additional coverage of that event in next week’s “Traveller.”

Trey Gordon, Alyssa Barlow and Torrence Talley, all students in Julie Holleman’s 5th-grade class at Walton Elementary in Prince George, won the Earth and Safety Day logo design competition hosted by the Fort Lee Environmental Management Office. Although the installation’s Earth and Safety Day observance was cancelled due to budget constraints, the logo competition was already under way. The three students’ entries were combined for the final graphic that featured the recycling logo, a seat belt and an Earth drawing. There were more than 60 entries for the contest this year. The winning students were awarded with a pizza party for their entire class.

The U.S. Army has always linked physical conditioning and com mbat readiness, but the Army’s Physical Readiness Training program goes further. Using the principles of training such as “train as you will fight”” and “train to sustain” as its foundation, the recently-implemented PRT is geared toward preparing Soldiers and thus units for the full spectrum of operations. Thaat means readying Soldiers for every task and mission they could face such as throw wing a grenade or participating in a patrol. t session in If you are an old Soldier, you may not recognize a physical training today’s Army. It may look more like a football training session thhan traditional PT. During a recent PT session for the Logistics Noncommissioned Officer Academy students at Williams Stadium, Soldiers were seen conducting drillls that included an odd-looking assortment of exercises such as laterals, verticals and power skips. The traditional exercises were present too -- the high jumper, lunges and squat bender to name a few, but today’s PT is not your father’s PT. It is differeent, more detailed, specified, robust and battle-focused. The NCOs at the academy now w have the responsibility of helping the rest of the Army not only learn the prograam but convey its importance to combat readiness.

Musical ‘Carnival’ opens May 3 at Lee Playhouse “Carnival,” the wellknown musical that made “Law and Order’s” Jerry Orbach a Broadway star in 1961, will be presented at the Lee Playhouse, May 3-19. It is the Fort Lee Theater Company’s final production of the 2012-13 season. The performances are set for May 3, 4, 10, 11, 17 and 18 at 8 p.m., and May 5, 12 and 19 at 3 p.m. All shows are open to the public. Often described by theater critics as charming and full of fun, “Carnival” tells the story of an innocent and optimistic young woman, Lili Daurier (played by Sarah Erway), who has lost her family and looks for a

job at a run-down carnival in the French countryside. Hired by owner and showman B. F. Schlegel (Ed Coleman), Lili meets an assortment of colorful characters including the rather amorous souvenir seller Grobert (Craig McFarland), an intriguing magician with the moniker of Marco the Magnificent (Mark Tomczak) and his jaded assistant, the incomparable Rosalie (Ann C. Easterling). The lead character also encounters several puppeteers and their delightful alter egos. The tender-hearted Jacquot (Christopher Stephens) is the man behind Henry the Horrible, a loveable walrus, and Marguerite,

a self-centered opera diva. The lonely and bitter war hero Paul Berthalet (Sean Ruhf) is the creative force behind Renardo, a wily fox with a roving eye, and Carrot Top, an endearing little boy puppet who provides the way Paul communicates with his “Lili dear.” Lili is a failure as a magic show assistant and finds her true talents working with Paul, Jacquot and their family of puppets. Like every carnival, the show is full of clowns, acrobats, dancers and performers of every kind. The large cast includes Worsham Abbott, Mara Barrett, Matthew Branthoover, Aimee Eisensmith, Joshua

Erway, Ashley Farmer, Emily Haswell, Krislyn Huish, Brandon J. Johns, Anna Kepley, Todd Kepley, Adrienne Mondragon, Kyrie Sims, Dylan Tipton and Mike White. Portraying French villagers who attend the onstage carnival are Joseph Bailey, Dale Blake, Denise Blake, Katie Farley, James Mitchell and Oliviea Popp. The production’s signature song, “Love Makes the World Go ‘Round,” is truly the theme of the show written by Michael Stewart, with music and lyrics by Bob Merrill. Other memorable tunes include “Direct from Vienna,” “The Grand Imperial Cirque de

Paris.” “Yes, My Heart” and “Beautiful Candy.” “There is something for everyone in ‘Carnival’ – singing, dancing, carnival acts, magic and even a puppet show,” said Director Steve King. “It is such an honor to direct ‘Carnival,’” said King. “My production team is a director’s dream.

Everyone brings so much skill and expertise to the production. Add an extremely talented cast, and you have all you need for an incredible show!” Tickets are $12 for adults and $6 for youths. For reservations or details, call (804) 734-6629. - FMWR

Installations around the world are currently celebrating the Month of the Military Child, a time to focus on their remarkable resilience, and a companion observance nationwide is Autism Awareness Month. The April observance brings this fast-growing developmental disorder to the forefront of the news. Autism represents a spectrum of developmental and neurological disorders that impairs a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s social interaction, communication and behavioral skills. Children with autism may also exhibit hypo or hypersensitivity to sensory stimuli and/or problems with fine and gross motor skills. Autism now affects 1 in 88 children and 1 in 54 boys in the United States. Autism represents five disorders: Autistic Disorder, Pervasive Developmental Disorders, Child Disintegrative Disorder, Rhettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Disorder and Aspergerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Disorder. Some of the symptoms found in children with autism may include the

Antonio Reyes, Echo Company, 59th Ordnance Brigade, 832nd Ord. Battalion. The Fort Lee Safety and Provost Marshal offices, along with the local SafeKids organization and several area law enforcement organizations, conducted the free checks on about 75 vehicles during the four-hour annual event here Tuesday in the Exchange parking lot. Each 32-point inspection of one seat took about 20 minutes. Participants received literature and briefings on other safety issues in their vehicles by officers and other safety experts.

Stanley Liss and family, DACP Officer Tasheka Davison and family, and DACP Officer Mysha Goins and family. Maj. David Martin, the PMO, is also pictured in the smaller photo with DACP Maj. Joe Metzger, left, and DACP Sgt. Scott Brunner, center. The individual photo is retired DACP Sgt. Dennis Mull who ran the 6.2 miles in battle dress uniform and combat boots as part of a fundraiser for Valorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rest, a nonprofit group that assists military veterans with disabilities. Veterans of Foreign Wars Homer Bland Post 8046 contributed money for each mile that Mull completed.

The 108th Quartermaster Company claimed the intramural hoops tournament crown on April 8 with a victory over the 244th LTD at MacLauglin Fitness Center. The 244th and 108th were the second and third seeds, respectively, coming into the post-season tournament. The 244th and 108th met earlier in the winnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bracket; 108th defeated 244th, sending them to the loserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bracket. The 244th would have to claw through the losersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bracket knocking off, among others, the defending champion CASCOM team. Ready to avenge their earlier loss, 244th was poised to face 108th for the final game. The 108th again proved formidable as it downed the 244th, 43-35. On a brighter note for the 244th, it earned the 2013 Intramural Basketball Sportsmanship Award.

The 2013 AIT Basketball Championship at MacLaughlin Fitness Center on April 10 was a 12-team single elimination win-or-go-home tournament. Mike Company, 244th Quartermaster Battalion entered as the top seed and Air Force One was second. Both teams ran through their brackets feasting on lower-ranked opponents. The two met in the final game; it was a fierce showdown of bodies flying and trash-talking. The tide turned on an AFO turnover with a little less than a minute left in regulation, which extended the M Co. lead and put the game out of reach.
