COMMENTARY

Fort Lee Hosts Army Birthday Celebration Fort Lee will celebrate the Army’s 237th birthday during a special June 14 event at the north entrance of the Combined Arms Support Command headquarters (adjacent to Seay Field). The festivities will include music by the 392nd Army Band, a wide variety of Army displays, a Bronze Star presentation and a cake-cutting ceremony featuring the oldest and youngest Soldiers on post. All are welcome to this Family friendly celebration, including the general public. Starting at 2 p.m., visitors can view a variety RIH[KLELWVDQGGLVSOD\VIURPRUJDQL]DWLRQV on and off post, including the Association of the United States Army, the U.S. Army Women’s Museum, the Quartermaster Museum, Kenner Army Health Clinic and the Family and MWR Directorate. At 3 p.m., the official ceremony begins. It will feature a mass reenlistment with 20 Soldiers renewing their service commitment

to the Army. Also planned is the cake cutting and the Bronze Star presentation to Michael A. Willis who served with the 16th Infantry Regiment, 1st Infantry Division in Vietnam. This event is a great opportunity for Soldiers and other Team Lee members to show their pride in being part of the Army Family. It’s also a chance for off-post community members to learn more about the installation and the Soldiers who serve the nation. Many generations of military troops have followed in the footsteps of those first colonists who left their homes and embraced our nation’s call to duty. For 237 years, our Soldiers, their Families and Army Civilians around the world have been the strength of this great nation in peace and at war. Today, America’s Army is engaged in nearly 150 countries, with more than 93,000 Soldiers currently deployed and

QM School Leadership Visits Fort Pickett Commandant, Command Sergeant Major Visit Soldiers During Airborne Training by T. Anthony Bell Senior Writer/Special Projects

BLACKSTONE ARMY AIRFIELD – Leaders who empathize with Soldiers and their missions, will likely reap benefits far beyond a “feel-good moment,” said Command Sgt. Maj. James Sims, Quartermaster Corps regimental command sergeant major. That’s why he makes it a point to show his face in the schoolhouse and at training sites on a regular basis. “When you have presence from the leadership, it permeates across an organization,” he said. “It shows the leadership cares from the top all the way down.” Sims was showing his concern for Soldiers May 24 when he visited Fort Pickett to talk with students and participate in airborne operations there. The school’s Aerial Delivery and Field Services Department conducts airborne operations there twice a month for rigger advanced individual training and basic officer leader course students. Although he visits twice monthly to jump himself, the opportunity to connect with Soldiers is never taken for granted. “I’ve been doing this thing for more than 28 years,” he said, “so I can tell you that the greatest gift for me is to give back – that’s priceless – to give to someone else all that I’ve learned from mentors, battle buddies, bosses, commanders, warrant officers, noncommissioned officers and Soldiers alike.” On the Blackstone Army Airfield tarmac, the troops were inclined to keep their bearing as they awaited their lifts. They stood at a rigid parade rest as Sims made rounds to engage groups of Soldiers but softened their postures as the conversation evolved into banter. He was clearly enjoying himself. “It’s always a good day be out here among these young warriors,” he said. “To be a part of it, there’s no greater gift.” Not far from where Sims stood with the troops, his commander, the person whom he calls “battle buddy,” was busy getting instructions for a jump. Brig. Gen. Gwen Bingham, the Quartermaster School commandant, was on her first visit to Blackstone in that capacity. Like Sims, she had also engaged the troops but was minutes away from making her first tandem jump, one in which an inexperienced jumper is attached to an experienced jumper via a harness. She joined about 77 other parachutists who were eventually dropped from the sky by a C-130 aircraft. Minutes after landing, she appeared charged, saying it was a thrill all of its own. “Now I know why my husband put his knees in the breeze 77 times,” she said, referring to her husband Patrick, a former airborne Soldier. “It is enjoyable. I’m

Now my husband and I have something to talk about.” She also has a better take on the parachute rigger course (military occupational specialty 92R) taught at the schoolhouse and the students who undergo the training. “I wanted to experience what our Soldiers experience,” said Bingham. “These are 92 romeos and I’m not an airborne Soldier, so I wanted the opportunity to feel like I was a part of their world for one day in the life of a quartermaster general. For one moment in time, I feel like I

was a part of their world.” The Quartermaster School graduates roughly 800 riggers annually. Riggers pack, maintain and repair parachutes for individuals as well as for equipment. The lack of roads and treacherous terrain make them a critical part of the logistical efforts in Afghanistan where airdropping supplies and equipment is commonplace. “What they do is phenomenal and God bless each and every one of them,” said Bingham.

Lee Integrates Enterprise System Technology by Anthony L. McKinnon SERP Military Operations Analyst

Supporting the Army’s No. 1 mission of Soldier readiness, the Scheduling Enterprise Resource Planning system simplifies unit and installation planning preparedness by integrating massive amounts of information into a common operating picture. With SERP military leaders can make more informed decisions to efficiently train, prepare and deploy troops. Enterprise systems are software applications that have cross-organizational capabilities as opposed to department or group-specific “stove-piped� programs. They allow for collaboration and communication across the installation through the collection of data that is accessible and usable by multiple organizations. Gone are the days when one or two individuals were

privy to information utilizing an Excel spreadsheet to hoard assets and resources. Team Lee has undergone major organizational changes resulting from the Base Realignment and Closure commission’s implementation. This is a true enterprise tool that can access and manage the necessary data to schedule daily activities and cross utilize limited resources. With the increase in students being trained annually and competition for training dollars, it is imperative that leaders have access to accurate data. This allows them to make prudent and responsible decisions that will benefit the entire Installation, not just one influential organization. Rodney Smith of the Quartermaster School’s Petroleum Water Department said, “The application provides an organization with a common picture of all training being conducted.� HNTB Federal Inc. has progressively

upgraded the application based on the recommendations of end users – a process which is very different from other commercial software providers. Delores Franklin, a scheduler at the Training Supply and Equipment Division, said, “With the new upgrades, schedules can be produced in a fraction of the time.� Several organizations received commendable ratings during the recent TRADOC accreditation and evaluation inspection. Key observations pointed out by the team include the following: ‡ 7KHV\VWHPDOORZVDQRUJDQL]DWLRQWR cross utilize assets and resources. ‡ 8VHUVYLHZWKHDYDLODELOLW\RIDVVHWV and resources prior to the start of training. ‡ &RQIOLFWV FDQ EH LGHQWLILHG DQG UHsolved before training begins. ‡ &OLHQWVFDQORFNLQFODVVURRPVDXGLtoriums, training areas and other resources.

‡ 8VHUV KDYH WKH DELOLW\ WR UHTXHVW TMP support. Not only does SERP allow Team Lee users to schedule resources and facilities in a geospatially referenced environment, forecast demand and availability of resources and facilities, it unifies a diverse command structure under a common system. Jose Osorio from the Ordnance School, Training Management Organization called the system “a solid scheduling application, which allows users to produce the best product with the lowest amount of expenditure.� The system is free to all tenants of Fort Lee and requires only a signed system user form and a training session. For more information on available training sessions, contact Anthony McKinnon at (804) 765-7053 or Carl Lynch, BASE 4-D systems administrator, at 765-7054.

Juneteenth Music, exhibits, historic re-enactors and more will help commemorate 147 years of emancipation from slavery at the Juneteenth Celebration at Petersburg National Battlefield in Hopewell on June 16. The celebration will begin with a moving libation ceremony beginning on the James River waterfront at 10 a.m. Activities will continue at Grant’s Headquarters Unit of Petersburg National Battlefield until 3 p.m. Presented by the Washington Cultural Foundation and the City of Hopewell, Juneteenth is a free family oriented event with musical performances, lectures, artillery demonstrations, children’s activities, exhibitions and tours of the house and grounds. Also known as Freedom Day or Emancipation Day, Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration to mark the partial end of slavery in the United States. Celebrated in more than 200 cities, Juneteenth’s origins are in Galveston, Texas, where on June 19, 1865, slaves were informed of their freedom by Union troops including the United States Colored Troops. The commemoration, in modern times, celebrates the continued quest for freedom while also acknowledging the achievements of African Americans. Another goal of Juneteenth is to promote mutual respect among diverse cultures in our community. The General Grant’s Headquarters Unit of Petersburg National Battlefield is located at 1001 Pecan Ave. in Hopewell and is open seven days a week, every day of the year except for major holidays. The grounds are open until dark and include numerous wayside exhibits on the lawn surrounding the home and on the James River waterfront. For information about Juneteenth National Freedom Day, call event organizer Rebecca Rose at (804) 541-2695 or Petersburg National Battlefield at 732-3531. Off Duty In the Community is a weekly feature of the Traveller offering descriptions of locales, events and volunteer opportunities of interest to Fort Lee Soldiers and Civilians.

Tell Those Mosquitoes to ‘Buzz Off’ by Spc. Jason Files Every year those pesky little creatures, mosquitoes, come out primarily at dawn and dusk. Found all over the world, they breed in standing, still water. That kind of water can be found in birdbaths, old tires, ditches or on tarps. Mosquitoes must feed to breed. Eliminating standing water is the best way to prevent mosquitoes from feeding on you. If standing water exists that cannot be removed, early detection and larval treatment is the most effective form of mosquito control. Kenner has a strong mosquito abatement program, in cooperation with DEL-IPMC, to control those pests on Fort Lee. Residents of housing and occupants of buildings can also help by identifying areas around their buildings and homes that may have the potential for collecting and holding water. Corrective measures can then be taken. Cleaning up water-collecting debris will help in reducing the threat. Sometimes it is as simple as making sure empty containers are stored upside down so they don’t collect water. Clean birdbaths weekly, and change pet drinking bowls daily to prevent mosquitoes from breeding. In Virginia, the Asian tiger mosquito is the most com-

mon mosquito pest. It is active during daylight hours but will bite after dark if there is adequate lighting or they are indoors. This mosquito breeds exclusively in natural or man-made containers that hold clear water. Mosquitoes spread the West Nile virus and malaria. Malaria is currently not transmitted in the U.S. but may appear in someone infected while traveling abroad. The Asian tiger mosquito can, however, transmit West Nile virus. In Virginia, there were nine cases reported in 2011. Mosquitoes become infected with West Nile virus when they feed on infected birds. Then, when an infected mosquito feeds on a person or animal, the virus is injected into that body where it multiplies and may cause illness. Most infections are mild and symptoms may include fever, headache and body aches, often with skin rash and swollen lymph glands. More severe infection may be marked by headache, high fever, neck stiffness, stupor, disorientation, coma, tremors, convulsions, muscle weakness, paralysis and, on rare occasions, death. The Environmental Health Section of Kenner recommends the following steps for maximum protection from mosquitoes: % :?42 >0,--#! 4? ,480) ,=!9 40, >0 ?@* *4#72 *;*0>0"& % /*4# 7-0"'!7**;*, !@>#?! 40, 7-0" $40?! -=?,--#!&

IDs

— FROM PAGE 14 Guard. Do I qualify for a veterans ID card? Members of the Virginia National Guard qualify if they were activated for federal duty. Will I have to renew my veterans ID card? No, the veterans ID card does not expire. I’m a business owner. What do I need to know about the veterans ID card? Many retailers, restaurants and other organizations offer discounts and special promotions to veterans. The veterans ID card is an easy way to verify an individual’s veteran status. The veterans ID card is issued by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles using information from the veteran’s DMV record. The veteran validated his or her military service and discharge status by presenting his or her DD-214 or other appropriate discharge document. Therefore, any business can feel comfortable about the validity of Virginia’s veterans ID card. – www.Virginia.gov
