2UGQDQFH6FKRROLQVWUXFWRU EDQGSHUIRUPDQFH KHOSVVKDSHIXWXUH$UP\ Staff Sgt. Renee’ M. Walker Ordnance School

FORT BENNING, Ga. – I was excited when I learned I was selected to become the first female instructor for the U.S. Army Ordnance School’s 91M, Bradley Systems Maintainer course. The Army has provided me with many challenging assignments that provided growth and professional development opportunities. This assignment offered me a unique chance to be a part of a team that is shaping the Army’s future. When I arrived at Fort Benning’s Bradley Training Division, which is part of 3rd Battalion, 81st Armor Regiment, the instructors welcomed me as one of their own. My fellow noncommissioned officers readily assisted me in preparing for the most important job in the Army – training ordnance Soldiers. The technical certification was tough and very challenging but many years of ordnance experience had fully prepared me to be successful. I am very thankful to have been given the opportunity to teach, train and mentor our future Bradley Fighting Vehicle System Maintainers. One of the highlights of my career, so far, is being able to contribute to the successful integration of females into this career field. The Ordnance Corps is leading the way and helping ensure our Army’s future strength, because the strength of our Army has always been its people. I’m proud to play a small role in this historical transition. I have a strong passion for teaching and mentoring these young war-

riors, as they transition into Army Strong Soldiers – men and women who are physically and mentally ready to serve as a BFV system maintainer. The advanced individual training for 91M Soldiers lasts for 12 weeks and four days. The common core training is conducted in the first two weeks. We teach students how to read technical manuals, utilize maintenance support forms, the Army Oil Analysis Program, safety, basic electronics, reading schematics and all the other knowledge skills they will need to be successful in the course. The remainder of the course teaches students how to troubleshoot, remove and install components, perform preventative maintenance checks and services and all of the other technical aspects of their job. The course becomes progressively more difficult throughout the training, culminating in a Sustainment Warrior’s Field Training Exercise. The exercise provides students an opportunity to demonstrate their skills and expertise in a simulated tactical environment. The training provides Soldiers with a broad technical skills base so they can immediately contribute to maintaining unit equipment readiness once they arrive at their duty stations. Women have been serving in other ordnance military occupational specialties, performing these same tasks, and I am so thankful for the opportunities that are available to all of us now. As an instructor, I think the most important part of my job is to empower all of our young Soldiers to develop as professionals. The training is very rigorous and

It is so important that we get it right at the school, because we set the stage for everything that follows in the career of a 91M Soldier. It is an honor to be the first female 91M instructor, yet I serve everyday with the realization that I will not be the last. My

The 262nd Quartermaster Battalion has a new commander. Lt. Col. Renee L. Mann took charge of the “Lifeliners” unit from Col. Ronald Childress during a change of command ceremony May 2 at the 262nd QM Bn. Parade Field, and Col. Aimee L. Kominiak, 23rd QM Brigade commander, oversaw the event. “Col. Ronald Childress has led this great battalion for the last two years,” said Kominiak. “Ron knows his Soldiers and he knows how to get the mission done.” Kominiak said Childress kept himself aware his units to make sure he took care of them. “If you get the Soldier part right, everything else will take care of itself,” she said. “Ron and his leaders have absolutely gotten it right.” Childress took time during the ceremony to thank those who served with him. “As I relinquish command and prepare to move on, I want to convey my deepest appreciation and gratitude to all service

members, civilian employees, families and friends for this faithful service and unyielding love and support during my tenure as Lifeline Six,” said Childress. “For the last 24 months, I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to command 262nd QM Bn. with the daunting challenge of providing world-class (quartermaster) initial entry training for the Army,” he continued. “It doesn’t get any better than that. It is and always will be the highlight of my career.” Childress’s new assignment moves him across the installation to serve as the assistant commandant of the QM School. Mann is highly qualified for the battalion command, said Kominiak. “(Childress’s) replacement, Lt. Col. Renee Mann, has an impressive list of credentials and is undoubtedly the right officer to lead the Lifeliner battalion,” she said. “Renee, I have no doubt that you and the Lifeliners will raise the bar in this fantastic unit even higher.” Mann thanked Childress for their transition time. “It was immediately apparent what a great battalion this is and I’m glad to be

taking the reins,” she said. Mann had a special message for the Soldiers and civilians within the battalion. “Someone once told me that taking command is not so much about being in

charge; it is about being in service,” said Mann. “With that, I promise to give you my best and I look forward to serving you and serving with you. I want you to know that there is no place I would rather be.”

Kenner Evaluation

Production/News Assistant Editor

The Family and MWR Directorate has recently introduced new features to get the word out about its offerings. One of the more noticeable changes is the digital displays that have been placed in 40 locations across the installation. They can be viewed at Lodging and other MWR facilities, as well as within battalions and brigades. “These displays will be available across post, and we’re planning to install more as time goes by,” said Megan Green, Family and MWR marketing manager. “Our next phase will include at least 20 more displays around the installation.” For units who are interested in adding the displays within their company areas, they can contact Green at (804) 734-7180. The displays currently feature MWR advertising – including special items like the daily lunch special at MWR facilities – as well as garrison messaging. Garrison messaging has information about safety, sexual harassment and assault prevention and suicide prevention. Because each unit can have different messages, content can be tailored for the audiences. To request information to be posted at a display in your unit, contact Green for details. “These Digital Advertising Screens will help us better communicate all of the great events and programs Family and MWR offers,” said Green.

The Joint Commission, an independent, nonprofit organization that accredits and certifies more than 20,000 health care facilities in the U.S., is set to survey Kenner Army Health Clinic, May 14-16. The organization will evaluate the clinic’s compliance with nationally established standards to determine whether, and if the conditions are being met under which accreditation should be awarded to Kenner. Anyone who believes that he or she has pertinent information about such matters may request an interview by a surveyor. To schedule an interview, call (804) 734-9434.

TARP Briefings

The other feature that has changed is the MWR website has undergone a major revision. The website – www.leemwr.com – has been updated to feature the new Fort Lee Family and MWR branding and will allow the directorate to make more realtime changes to the content. Additional changes to the website include more menus, quicker access to available content and faster loading times. “The newly re-designed website is much more user friendly for our customers,” said Green. “With a click of a button, they have access to a new Family and MWR facility map, a phone and email directory, not to mention information about all of our upcoming events and programs.” Aside from the regular website changes, a special mobile version will be available soon to allow easier access from mobile devices.

Threat Awareness Reporting Program training is scheduled for May 15 at the Lee Theater. The first briefing is at 9 a.m. and the afternoon session, 1 p.m. All Army personnel and DoD Civilians are required to attend an annual threat briefing. Additional briefings will be scheduled throughout the year. For details, call (804) 734-1569.

217th Change of Command A 217th Military Police Detachment Change of Command Ceremony is set for May 17, 3 p.m., outside of the detachment’s headquarters at the intersection of Mahone and C avenues. Capt. Christopher De La Torre will relinquish command to Capt. Isaac Worede. All members of the Fort Lee community are welcome. The inclement weather location is the Post Field House. For details, call (804) 734-4692.

CASCOM Town Hall Meetings CASCOM will conduct two Town Hall-style meetings to discuss future initiatives for Civilian Professional Development, May 29, 9-10 a.m. and 10:15-11:15 a.m., at the Post Theater. The meetings, in which the results of the professional development survey will be shared, are for DA Civilians and their military supervisors. HHC, CASCOM and TC School personnel should attend the first session and ALU, QMS and ODS personnel will attend the second meeting.

5HDOWLPHWUDIÀFLQIRDYDLODEOH COLONIAL HEIGHTS – I-95 commuters are currently seeing travel times displayed on five existing overhead message signs between Chesterfield County and Hanover County. Similar signs from the Virginia Department of Transportation have proved successful in Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads in providing accurate, real-time travel time information to drivers, allowing them to choose whether to continue on their route or take an alternate. Travel times also reduce trip-related anxiety and traffic congestion. “These new messages will allow drivers to take more control over their commute,” said Robb Alexander, regional operations director. VDOT. “Although our initial phase focuses on I-95 commuters to downtown Richmond, we intend to add travel times to other message signs in the region after we’ve validated the messaging.” To ensure the messages and

destinations shown are useful to drivers, the Virginia Department of Transportation is encouraging Richmond commuters to provide feedback about the new travel time messages during the testing phase through May 20 at https://www. surveymonkey.com/s/5MDBNBL. The five signs that will display the new travel time messages are located: • I-95 northbound – Just north of Ruffin Mill Road; mile marker 59 in Chesterfield County • I-95 northbound – Just north of Willis Road; mile marker 66 in Chesterfield County • I-95 southbound – About four miles south of the Kings Dominion Route 30 exit; mile marker 94 in Hanover County • I-95 southbound – Just south of Lewistown Road; mile marker 88 in Hanover County • I-95 southbound – Just south of Chamberlayne Road; mile marker 81 in Henrico County

Drivers can expect travel times to be regularly displayed during weekday morning and afternoon rush hour (5-9 a.m. and 3-7 p.m.). The signs also are active on weekday afternoons and on weekends when lane closures are in place for the I-95 Richmond Bridge Restorations project. VDOT will fine tune the schedule based on what time of day the messages will be most useful to drivers. To view messages displayed on overhead signs, traffic camera images or road conditions, visit VDOT’s 24-hour traffic and travel information website, www.511Virginia. org. Information is also available by calling 511 or following the central Virginia 511 feed on Twitter @511centralVA or http://twitter. com/#!/511centralva.

It’s prudent to get ready for the hurricane and flash flooding season. Moreover, it is smart to save money during the commonwealth of Virginia’s sales tax holiday on many useful products – May 25-31. You can shop for cellphone chargers, all types and sizes of bottled water, batteries, duct tape, first aid kits, radios, generators and more. When you do, you will be exempt from paying sales tax on many use-

DETAIN T. Anthony Bell

Senior Writer/Special Projects

You may have seen the images before: U.S. military personnel searching individuals and vehicles in Iraq and Afghanistan. Although it may take on the look of a casual or even random act, there is an order and procedure. The Soldier’s Manual of Common Tasks details them step-by-step. Recently members of the 54th Quartermaster Company, 530th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, 82nd Sust. Brigade, received a block of training on the

subject that included instruction and demonstration. The 54th, a mortuary affairs unit, is not likely to encounter situations in which it will have to perform the procedures, but Staff Sgt. Justin Gaume, one of the trainers combat veteran, begs to differ. “As an infantryman for nine years, I was amazed at some of the different MOSs who were coming out to work with us,” he said. Translation: in today’s deployment environments, Soldiers and units don’t have the luxury of not preparing for the least likely scenario. Preparation is key.

PETERSBURG -- Pvt. Giovanni Reyes and several of his uniformclad fellow Soldiers spent at least two hours Saturday toting large bags around the grounds of Petersburg High School helping students to collect trash. On one hand, it was his way of making amends for something he didn’t do during his school years. “I never really was able to help out when I was in high school,” said the 18-year-old, “so I thought it was a good opportunity to do it now.” On the other hand, Reyes was full of the realization or at least the hope that he was doing more than just cleaning up school property. “From the students that I’ve met so far, they pretty much look up to us,” said the Miami native on how the students see Soldiers. “They see us as protectors and role models. I feel like when we come out into the

civilian world, it’s our opportunity to show them what kind of role models we can be.” Reyes was one of 12 Soldiers from Alpha Company, 832nd Ordnance Battalion, 59th Ord. Brigade, who voluntarily answered the call for community service on a chilly, overcast day to support the cleanup efforts of the school’s National Honor Society. Alpha Commander Capt. Forrest R. Clay said extending an offer to help seemed the right thing to do. “We do a lot of community engagement projects in the Colonial Heights-Chesterfield area,” he said. “What I didn’t want to do is neglect the community that’s in our own backyard, given that Petersburg High School is so close to Fort Lee. It felt that it’s our responsibility to let them know they are a part of the Army community and that we will extend our hand whenever they need help.” Aside from being a part of the big picture of being a good neighbor, Clay said Soldiers’ willingness

to help impresses upon students the character attributes required of those who serve and defend the nation. “I think (students) see pride, respect, one who is willing to sacrifice their own time to give back,” he said. “I also think they can see their own futures, represented by these Soldiers who are around the same age, that there is something they can achieve – whether it’s completing college or joining the military – to make their lives and community better.” For the cleanup effort, the students and Soldiers combed most of the school property located roughly six miles away from the installation near the Dogwood Trace Golf Course. Each group went about their work in a business-like manner and exhibited behavior that suggested each was foreign to each other. That didn’t matter to volunteer, Spc. Maurice Sellers, a 27-year-old college graduate and son of a Soldier. “I like volunteering,” the Florence, S.C., native said. “I volunteer a lot with my fraternity, and I love helping

out communities as much as possible because I love this country. If you don’t have pride in this country, you can’t really have pride in yourself.” Sellers admitted that he didn’t know much about the school – only that actor Blair Underwood is a graduate and that it has had a number of challenges over the years it has worked hard to overcome. The school gained full accreditation four years ago and is currently accredited under Principal Alicia Fields. Sellers said being a good citizen is being part of efforts to make things even better. “I just want to help,” he said. Although it had a cool start, the cleanup effort hit a high point at the close of the event. Sellers and the other students made much more of a connection to the students during a chilly cookout in an adjacent park. The Soldiers and students sat together at a picnic table, munched on hot dogs and hamburgers and shared more than a few laughs. Travon Graves, an 18-year-old

Petersburg student headed to Virginia Commonwealth University, said he saw Soldiers as “ordinary people” who had a wealth of experience because of what they have to endure as members of the military. “They’ve been there and seen a lot of things that we’re going to go through,” he said. “They are in a position to tell us, help us and guide us on our paths.” While Graves said the Soldiers gave him plenty words of wisdom and encourage, other students were just glad the Soldiers showed a genuine concern. “I’m just inspired that they came out here and tried to help out,” said student Adilene Vargas. Fields agreed and was encouraged by the Soldiers’ actions. She said it meant a lot to the students to see Soldiers support their cleanup efforts. “To be out here on a cold Saturday morning,” she said, hands tucked inside of her jacket and shoulders hunched, “and interact with our students -- it had a great impact.” Fields added that she hopes that impact isn’t short-term. “There is a lot that can be done,” she said. “I was talking (to Clay) about a mentor program, having the Soldiers just coming in and sitting down with students once a month. The one thing about mentoring is providing time for young people, not to be a mother or father figure, but just to be that listening ear.” Clay, a former school teacher, said he is up for the challenge of helping students while fulfilling his personal goals of instilling in young people the value and worth of education. “I’m not here to recruit you to join the Army,” he said. “I’m here to recruit you to create a better future. I want to emphasize to these students the importance of education and how important it is to continue it.” Clay’s top enlisted Soldier, 1st Sgt. Gregory Marrisette, said supporting schools ultimately helps the community to form a more complete idea of what Soldiers are all about. “The Army isn’t just about kicking in doors downrange,” he said. “It’s about helping and providing support to our communities. Some of these students never get to see that side so being here gives them the chance to see us in a positive light.”

Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month encourages drivers to share road FORT RUCKER, Ala. – May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, and while the nationwide campaign sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration urges drivers to “share the road” with motorcyclists, Army officials are placing greater emphasis on personal responsibility while riding. In general, motorcycle accidents within the Army do not follow national trends, according to Brig. Gen. Timothy J. Edens, director of Army Safety and

WE MAKE

commanding general, U.S. Army Combat Readiness/ Safety Center. “Historically, most fatal motorcycle accidents involving Soldiers are single vehicle,” Edens said, explaining that nationally, many riders are killed when other drivers do not allow them room to maneuver in time to prevent a collision. “Even when we’ve lost Soldiers in multi-vehicle accidents, it’s often been the result of indiscipline on the Soldier’s part: alcohol use, excessive speed or lack of personal protective

equipment.” Army accident data shows that speeding and other forms of reckless riding, neglecting to wear PPE, and failure to complete required training are among the most common indiscipline-based errors Soldier riders make. Alarmingly, leaders and Soldiers over the age of 25 have comprised the majority of rider fatalities during the past several years. Although motorcycle fatalities have fallen markedly in 2013 — current statistics indicate a 59 percent

decrease as compared to this time last year — officials expect numbers to rise through the end of summer. “We’ve had a great year so far, but it’s also been a long winter in many places,” said Command Sgt. Maj. Richard D. Stidley, USACR/Safety Center. As the weather warms and more riders hit the road, their risk is going to increase. Managing it is key to staying alive for another riding season. The Army-mandated Progressive Motorcycle

Program, which promotes lifelong learning through staggered riding courses based on proven practices from the Motorcycle Safety Foundation, is now in its second year and has received positive reviews from Soldiers. A complement to that training, the Motorcycle Mentorship Program, is already well established and boasts chapters in 48 states. The MMP pairs novice riders with experienced motorcyclists to foster an environment where enthusiasts continually learn from and keep one another safe. “The PMP and MMP are just two of the great programs the Army has in place,” Edens said. “It’s incumbent upon leaders to

Smiles HAPPEN

ensure their riders know about them, get the proper training and ride responsibly. We now have an entire month dedicated to motorcycle safety, so there’s no excuse for not getting a head start on summer.” Stidley said leaders should also remember their Soldiers are watching. “Discipline and responsibility are not a function of rank,” he said. “Leaders are just as accountable to the standard as their Soldiers, and they should be setting the example.” For more information on motorcycle safety, visit https://safety.army.mil. – U.S. Army Combat Readiness/Safety Center

LEE COMMUNITY COMMEMORATES HISTORIC BATTLE PETERSBURG – History came alive as the Combined Arms Support Command assisted the City of Petersburg to commemorate the 232nd anniversary of the 1781 Battle of Petersburg. Col. Robert

A. Harney, Army Logistics University commandant and military deputy, and Lt. Col. Alan P. Hoff, British exchange officer, Sustainment Battle Lab, participated in the opening ceremonies for the two-day

event in April. During the annual Revolutionary War re-enactment at Battersea, hundreds of community members gathered to hear Harney share a brief history of the battle. Hoff delivered a traditional eulogy for British Maj. Gen. William Phillips, whose death occurred in Petersburg in May 1781. As part of the opening ceremony, Harney, who represented the United States military, and Hoff, who represented British forces, presented a memorial wreath in honor of the fallen. Revolutionary War reenactment units demonstrate their skills at Battersea to commemorate the Battle of Petersburg, which was part of America’s fight for independence. Although not the actual site of the battle, Battersea was occupied by British soldiers during the spring of 1781. The battle occurred on the banks of the Appomattox River, in what is today Old Towne Petersburg. – ALU
