COMMENTARY

Top Army Leaders Discuss DADT Repeal Sept. 20 marked the end of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” The law is repealed. From this day forward, gay and lesbian Soldiers may serve in our Army with the dignity and respect they deserve. Our rules, regulations and policies reflect the repeal guidance issued by the Department of Defense and will apply uniformly without regard to sexual orientation, which is a personal and private matter. For more than 236 years, the U.S. Army has been an extraordinary force for good in the world. Our Soldiers are the most agile, adaptable and capable warriors in history – and we are ready for this change. Over the last several months, our leaders, Soldiers and

Department of the Army Civilians have discussed, trained and prepared for this day. The President, the Secretary of Defense and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs have certified that repeal is consistent with military readiness, effectiveness, unit cohesion, and recruiting and retention. Your professionalism, leadership and respect for your fellow Soldiers will ensure that this effort is successful. At the heart of our success is adherence to the Army Values. These standards not only infuse every facet of our culture and operations, but also guide us as we adapt to change. Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity and Personal Courage are not mere words to us – they are the very principles by which we live, train

and fight. Accordingly, we expect all personnel to follow our values by implementing the repeal fully, fairly and in accordance with policy guidance. It is the duty of all personnel to treat each other with dignity and respect, while maintaining good order and discipline throughout our ranks. Doing so will help the U.S. Army remain the Strength of the Nation. – Raymond F. Chandler, Sergeant Major of the Army Raymond T. Odierno, General, United States Army, Chief of Staff John M. McHugh, Secretary of the Army

Ins, Outs of Dealing with Debt Collectors by Jason Alderman Visa Financial Education Program

If you’ve ever fallen far behind on paying your bills, you know what it’s like to dread whenever the phone rings: What if it’s another bill collector? Ignoring the call – like ignoring a toothache – is never a good idea. Sooner or later, you’re going to have to deal with the situation. According to Gail Cunningham, spokesperson for the National Foundation for Credit Counseling, “Our 2011 Financial Literacy Survey found that most people – 68 percent – pay their bills on time. However, 28 percent said they experience difficulty making timely bill payments.” Ideally, you should contact your lender as soon as you realize you may have difficulty paying a bill. They would much rather work out a repayment plan than enter

the costly and time-consuming collections process. But, if that ship has already sailed, there are a few precautions you can take to protect your interests. You have certain rights whenever dealing with debt collectors. For example, collectors cannot harass you by these actions: • Using abusive language or threatening violence or arrest. • Calling before 8 a.m. or after 9 p.m. • Falsely representing themselves as attorneys or government employees if they are not. • Threatening to sue you if they don’t intend to. • Contacting you at work if you tell them your employer disapproves. • Contacting others, except to verify where you live and work. • Revealing to others that you owe

money. If a collection agency contacts you initially by phone, it must send written notice within five days stating how much you owe, the name of the creditor owed and how to file a dispute if you don’t agree. Once contacted, you should do the following: • Get names of all persons calling and their agency, its address, phone and fax numbers. • Take detailed notes of all conversations, correspondence and prerecorded calls, noting names, dates and times. • You may request that all subsequent contact be handled by mail. Send this request – and all further correspondence – by certified mail, return receipt requested. • Request that all conversations be followed-up in writing. • Document any false, misleading or

Team Lee Set to Host Army’s Finest 26 ‘Best Warrior’ Contenders Vie for Top Soldier Titles by T. Anthony Bell Senior Writer/Special Projects

The annual competition that showcases the skills, personal strength and commitment of the U.S. Army Soldier will make its 10th start here next week. The 2011 Department of the Army Noncommissioned Officer and Soldier of the Year Best Warrior Competition, commonly known as “Best Warrior,” will commence Sunday. It will feature five days of field, classroom and boardroom challenges to determine who achieves distinction as the Army’s standout warriors. Twenty-six junior-enlisted troops and NCOs from Army commands around the world are slated to compete in the only major Army-wide event open to Soldiers of all military occupational specialties. Events include weapons qualification, a board appearance, urban orienteering and several of the Warrior Tasks and Battle Drills that are key to survival in combat. Fort Lee, which has hosted Best Warrior since 2002, traditionally launches itself into event planning nearly a year in advance, putting to use a large infrastructure of people, equipment and facilities that are essential to a seamless operation. Command Sgt. Maj. Daniel Reid is commandant of the Logistics NCO Academy. A key figure in the planning and execution of the event, he said preparation is the biggest factor. “Best Warrior is a long process,” he said. “When the event ends, you almost immediately start to plan for the coming year. You’re planning throughout the year to provide the warriors with the best product possible. It is very labor intensive yet very rewarding.” The Sergeant Major of the Army, currently Raymond Chandler III, oversees Best Warrior. Fort Lee’s Combined Arms Support Command has operational responsibility. First Sgt. LaDerek Green, the operations sergeant major for the event, said Best Warrior uses the lessons learned from previous competitions, current operational doctrine and the SMA’s guidance to build future Best Warrior events.

“We try to leverage all the lessons learned from all the training centers such as the Joint Multinational Readiness Center and National Training Center,” he said. “We also leverage the subject matter experts within the CASCOM, who have been deployed all over the world, to make this a relevant event, one in which the contestants can go back to their posts, camps and stations and impact training.” In order to accomplish that goal, hundreds of Fort Lee Soldiers and civilians dedicate much time and effort to ensure Best Warrior runs as intended. Law enforcement, food service, range and medical personnel and observers, controllers, evaluators and role players are just a few of those needed to support the competition. The NCOA alone has a few dozen Soldiers who have worked the event throughout the year. “I have approximately 30-40 noncommissioned officers who are dedicated to

supporting our portion of the event,” said Reid, noting his responsibility for seven of the nine testing areas. Despite Best Warrior’s logistical requirements, Fort Lee is faced with the prospect of executing its normal missions without disruption. The Home of Sustainment features four schools and trains nearly half of all Soldiers in the Army. Green said it is a challenge to ensure the schools and training missions are not impacted. “Much planning and coordination are required so that we don’t affect the training of initial entry Soldiers as well as those noncommissioned officers enrolled in the Logistics NCO Academy,” said Green. “The only way to do that is to sit down with directors, branch chiefs and senior Soldiers and take a closer look at the curriculum requirements and adjust times throughout the year so that the impact (during Best Warrior) is minimal.”

Aside from the planning requirements, Best Warrior is somewhat a passionate endeavor for the NCOs involved in supporting it. Reid said it is a godsend that he and his staff have been afforded the opportunity to work with the event. “Best Warrior is an extension of the phrase ‘No one is more professional than I,’” said Reid. “These Soldiers are the best of the best. It is a great honor to participate and facilitate the events.” Green shared a similar sentiment. “Personally, I feel blessed that I’ve had the opportunity to be a part of a competition at this level and have the opportunity to affect Soldiers across the Army,” he said. “I don’t think many noncommissioned officers at any level could say throughout their careers that they had such an opportunity. I’m humbled and honored to have the opportunity to serve Soldiers across the Army.” Green said the passion and dedication of those who have worked on the event during the course of the year will show. He was not at liberty to reveal details about the testing situations but said this year’s Best Warrior is a reflection of the leadership traits required on the battlefield, and the event will challenge Soldiers to that end. “The way ahead in the Army is that Soldiers need to think critically, communicate effectively and dialogue with subordinates in a manner that motivates them to accomplish the mission,” he said. “This competition not only tests a Soldier’s ability to operate as an individual but also as a part of a team.” The competitive portion of Best Warrior concludes Oct. 7 with the “Mystery Event,” one that is not revealed to contestants until a few minutes prior to the start. In the past, the “mystery” has included tasks such as breaking down weapons in darkness and a combatives tournament. The Army’s Best Warriors will be announced Oct. 10 at the Association of the U.S. Army 2011 Annual Meeting and Exposition in Washington, D.C. Editor’s note: The Fort Lee community can follow the progress of the competition through the U.S. Army Best Warrior website at www.army.mil/bestwarrior/2011.

ACS Readies for Domestic Violence Awareness Month by Kimberly K. Fritz Family/Community Life Reporter

Each October, communities across the nation observe National Domestic Violence Awareness Month – but the work of advocates is never ending. Fort Lee’s Family Advocacy and Empowerment Program personnel work to educate military members and their families about domestic violence and to eradicate it all year long. Michelle King, senior legal assistant at the Central Virginia Legal Aid Society, specializes in domestic violence cases. King has never been abused. Her mother wasn’t so lucky. She was a victim of domestic abuse for years and taught her daughters from the time they were very young what they needed to know to be empowered. “I am the daughter and granddaughter of survivors,” King said. “My mother was abused by my father when I was little and my grandmother was abused by my grandfather. One day my mom decided not to let us experience what she had, so she defended herself against the abuse.” King doesn’t remember the event, but often heard the story of the day her mother became empowered. “He began to beat her in the kitchen,” she said. “She picked up a cast-iron skillet and hit him. He jumped out of a second story window and ran away. It seems comical now, but nothing about abuse is funny.”

When King began working, she was drawn to the legal community and took a job as a receptionist. Then, when federal funding broadened the scope of the society’s work, King began working with the domestic violence department as a legal aid and as an advocate. “Educating women and men about what to do before, during and after domestic abuse is so important,” King said. “Knowing where to go to get help is the first step.” Sometimes people don’t think what they are experiencing is abuse, said Terri R. Ceaser, victim advocate coordinator. “It’s important to know what domestic violence is so you are prepared if it ever happens to you,” she said. Being frightened of your partner’s temper or feeling like you are walking on eggshells could indicate domestic abuse. Making decisions about activities and friends according to what your partner wants or how your partner will react may be abuse. Being hit, kicked, slapped, punched or pushed is domestic violence and ACS is here to help. “The Army is committed to ensuring victims of domestic abuse are protected,” Ceaser said. “We offer unrestricted (which allows an official investigation) and restricted reporting (which does not initiate the investigative process). We have victim advocates on staff to provide immediate support to the victim and address his or her interest and safety. We are here to help.” The family advocacy program offers empowerment ser-

State Fair of Virginia Perhaps you’ve seen or heard the humorous, and sometimes bazaar, commercials where the narrator personifies various characters chosen by the community including an angry leprechaun, a little girl and a bad singer. The recent advertising campaign now airing on local television and radio stations illustrates the “Your Fair, Your Way� theme and the variety of attractions that can be found at the State Fair of Virginia. Open today through Oct. 9 at the Meadow Event Park in Doswell (about 45 minutes north of Fort Lee along Interstate 95), the fair offers rides, multiple display areas, shows, games, concerts, food and fun for all ages. Among the more unusual and thrilling attractions advertised are the BMX Stunt Show, K-9s in Flight, the Antique Tractor Pull, Racing Pigs, Lone Star Pro Rodeo, a Demolition Derby and a mini-circus. The fair offers plenty of musical entertainment as well with scheduled performances by The Band Perry, Casper, Tracy Lawrence and the Marshall Tucker Band. The midway tends to be a favorite among the more adventurous crowd, and it neighbors a food and game pavilion where just about any favorite in fair-style cuisine

can be found. And the whole fair experience wouldn’t be complete without a stroll through some of the display areas that include local crafts and artwork, farm equipment and livestock, home hardware and better-living vendors, and much, much more. Instructors from Fort Lee’s Joint Culinary Center of Excellence will judge youth and adult baking contests and the Virginia Egg Council’s Everybody Loves Eggs Chocolate baking contest this year. The JCCoE staffers also will demonstrate their culinary talent on Oct. 2 at the Arts and Crafts Hall. Admission price to the State Fair of Virginia varies from $10 to $15. Discounts are offered for military members with a government identification card. Ride tickets are sold separately for $1 each or parents can save money by purchasing a ride-wristband or multiple-ticket package. To get the most bang for your buck, visit the fair on opening day (or Oct. 3-5) after 5 p.m. Admission is just $10 and unlimited ride wristbands are $10.

Since 2000, the Central Virginia Chapter of the Virginia Breast Cancer Foundation has been donating funds to public libraries for current breast cancer materials â&#x20AC;&#x201C; now Fort Leeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation Community Library has benefited from the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s generosity. The FMWR community library here received seven books dealing with breast health and breast cancer. Among the collection are books for children, women and men. Finding information when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard those lifechanging and life-threatening words is probably the most important thing you can do, said Joy Galloni, past CVCVBCF president and Army Logistics University librarian. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first thing I did after my diagnosis was to get â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Dr. Susan Loveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Breast Book,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I needed to know everything I could about the cancer I had. Dr. Love is the go-to medical professional nationwide for breast cancer, and I used that book to research terms used in my medical reports. At all of my treatments my doctors commented about how much I knew about my cancer.â&#x20AC;? The latest version of Dr. Loveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book is among the six other titles now available at the Fort Lee Community Library. Knowing that information about her cancer had helped her during her treatment, Galloni realized how much it would help other cancer patients as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody who has an address can use the public libraries,â&#x20AC;? Galloni said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So we (the CVC-VBCF) began to donate money for libraries to choose titles for their collections.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The foundation spends up to $6,000 on this project each year,â&#x20AC;? Galloni said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s moniker is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;educate, advocate and eradicateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; so this really meets our objective for education available to everyone. The VBCF conducts one fundraiser to support the library project and other state-wide activities annually with a Breast Cancer Awareness dinner the last Monday in October each year. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s benefit is set for Oct. 24. Terri Koyl, the FMWR librarian, said she was happy to get the books. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a library this small, I would have never been able to get this many books on this one subject,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This donation will certainly benefit the community, and I am proud to be able to offer this selection.â&#x20AC;?

AMERICA’S MILITARY

Name: Sgt. Edna Alcin Unit: 108th Quartermaster Company, 530th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, 49th QM Group MOS: 92A– automated logistics specialist Age: 33 Time in service: four years Hometown: Atlanta Family: married Describe yourself: “I am a unique person; very outgoing but very private also. I am not a person whose everyday moves can be

predicted.” If you won the lottery: “I would finish my contract in the military because I like what I do. I like being around Soldiers. I like being around people and learning different things. With the million dollars, I would open up a charity; a home for battered children.” Dream car: “A 2011 Bentley.” Greatest hope: “To one day get my Ph.D.” Worst fear: “Not being able to realize my dreams.” Your talent: “My talent is helping people. At one point, I wanted to be a doctor. That’s my main goal. I don’t like to see people suffer.” Your ideal life: “My ideal life would be to have enough to not want for anything, but at the same time, I don’t want to be rich. I want to have enough to help others and still be able to maintain my own lifestyle.” One defining moment:

www.fortleetraveller.com

“The thing that had a major impact on me was my mother’s death (2006). When she passed away, I felt like my purpose in life was gone. I lost the blueprint in my life. After it happened, it was like standing at a corner – I didn’t know what to do. That’s when I made the decision to join the Army. I always heard the Army was great and there’s never a dull moment, so I was like ‘I need something to lift my spirits’ from that stage in life. I was at a point where I needed something to challenge me. ” Did the Army fulfill your initial expectations:? “When I first joined, I didn’t know what to expect. All I thought about was war. There are guns and blowing up stuff. That’s what I thought. When I joined, I realized there was more to it. Yes, you do get to use weapons and train, but it gives you an open view of life itself. In the real world, it’s easy to be selfish and only thinking of yourself and

your family, but when you’re in the Army, you learn to think about other people. You get a chance to work with different people and it enriches you.” You were deployed to Iraq in 2009. What did you learn?: “What I learned is that we spend so much time worrying about little things. In other countries, you see people with far less than what we have and they still live on and smile on an everyday basis. There are people who don’t want you there, but there are also those who do, who want your support, who want the help in keeping the peace. When I got back home, it gave me a new sense of appreciation. I try not to worry about the little things.” Your most profound moment as a Soldier: “When I got on a bus and knew for sure that I was going to a different country and not knowing what to expect. I heard people talk

about being deployed to Iraq. You hear many stories, but when you actually get on that bus and know you’re your leaving your family behind, at that moment you come to the realization that there is a chance that you may not get to see these people again or there may be a chance you may not come back to this country because at any given moment, anything can happen.” Best thing about the Army: “You get a chance to travel around the world and meet different people and have the ability to understand people.” Worst thing: “The hours. Sometimes we have to pull long hours, and sometimes you may not want to take a direct order but you roll with it because that’s a part of your mission, what you signed up for.” Goals: “Earn my Ph.D. in biology and work in a different country and do missionary work.” – Compiled by T. Anthony Bell

SAFETY

Behavior Changes Can Prevent Accidents by Edward Newell Installation Safety Office

About 3 million car-related injuries occur each year. Two million of them are permanent injuries. Around 40,000 die. Department of Transportation statistics indicate that accidents are generally related to irresponsible driving behavior. About 40 percent of fatalities are related to drinking and driving, 30 percent to speeding and about 33 percent from a car going off the road. Seat belt use is only at about 68 percent nationally, despite it being a highly cost-effective means to prevent fatalities and serious injuries. The very young and the very old are much more likely to be involved in accidents. Car accidents are currently the No. 1 killer of people ages 1 to 37. About one in 30 young drivers will be injured in an accident each year. Young drivers are four times more likely to die in car accidents and are much more prone to speeding, driving recklessly, not wearing their seat belts, and drinking and driving than middle-aged drivers. If the U.S. could reduce these dangerous behaviors, it could prevent these needless deaths and injuries. People also should be careful not to drive if they are feeling sleepy or even slightly intoxicated, since lack of sleep can often reduce your response time as much as

slight intoxication and increase the chance of an accident. It is also important that people avoid driving when there is rain, snow or heavy fog, unless necessary. It is also not a good idea to drive between 11 p.m. and 4 a.m., particularly on Friday and Saturday nights, for these are the most likely hours to encounter sleepy, reckless and/or intoxicated motorists. Car accidents can be prevented if people would be more cautious and considerate when driving. Here are some ways to avoid car accidents: â&#x20AC;˘ Be alert! â&#x20AC;˘ Be familiar with your vehicle. â&#x20AC;˘ Check your vehicle. Before you start driving, make sure that your car is in good condition. â&#x20AC;˘ Wear your seatbelt and have all passengers buckleup as well. â&#x20AC;˘ Slow down while driving in housing areas and subdivisions. â&#x20AC;˘ Drive within the speed limits. Driving too fast or too slow can be dangerous. â&#x20AC;˘ Obey traffic rules, regulations and follow traffic signals. â&#x20AC;˘ Do not drive when fatigued, anxious or not feeling well. â&#x20AC;˘ Keep a safe distance to avoid hitting the vehicle in front of you.

â&#x20AC;˘ Maintain your cool behind the wheel and avoid road rage. â&#x20AC;˘ Watch out for motorcyclists and other vehicles. â&#x20AC;˘ Watch for wildlife that may enter the roadway. â&#x20AC;˘ Do not drink alcohol before/while driving. â&#x20AC;˘ Do not use cell phones while driving and no text messaging. â&#x20AC;˘ Do not adjust the radio or change a CD while driving. â&#x20AC;˘ Avoid distracting tasks while driving; keep your eyes on the road. â&#x20AC;˘ Be especially careful when crossing intersections. â&#x20AC;˘ Slow down on roadways that are near schools, churches, parks, railroads or anywhere that is crowded with people. â&#x20AC;˘ Have regular eye check-ups. It is necessary for the driver to have good eyesight. â&#x20AC;˘ Be more cautious when driving at night. â&#x20AC;˘ Know the weather/road conditions and how they affect your driving abilities. Following these tips can help prevent car collisions and save many lives. A change in our behavior for the good would be a plus for all that are sharing the road. Do your part and be a safe driver. Watch out for other motorists as well as pedestrians.

DEBT â&#x20AC;&#x201D; FROM PAGE 2 Unfortunately, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not uncommon for identity thieves to run up debt in someone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name and to have those unpaid debts eventually go into collection. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to check your credit reports regularly and to report any errors or mistaken transactions immediately. You can order one free credit report a year from each of the three main credit bureaus through www.annualcreditreport. com.

           Emergency preparedness is no longer the sole concern of earthquake prone Californians and those who live in the part of the country known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tornado Alley.â&#x20AC;? For Americans, preparedness must now account for man-made disasters as well as natural ones. Knowing what to do during an emergency is an important part of being prepared and may make all the difference when seconds count. Many events can trigger emergency situations with the potential to escalate into disaster. Hazards such as power outages or disease outbreaks can happen anywhere at any time, so you should become familiar with the spectrum of possible dangers and how you will be notified about them. It is also important to give special consideration to hazards likely to affect your local area, such as hurricanes, tornadoes, flooding, earthquakes or severe winter weather. While the potential threats can seem overwhelming, keep in mind that most of what you address in your family emergency plan or put in your emergency kits will be useful regardless of the hazard. And in many cases, the same protective alternatives apply â&#x20AC;&#x201C; evacuate or shelter-in-place. You should understand the local mass warning system and, when notified, be prepared to evacuate, move to a civilian shelter or designated safe haven or temporarily shelter-in-place. Each local community is responsible for warning the public of impending danger due to an emergency. Army installations support this effort by establishing mass warning and notification procedures. In the United States, the main agencies that warn of natural hazards are the National Weather Service and the U.S. Geological Survey. NWS uses terms such as warning and watch to keep us informed. A warning is a hazardous event that is occurring or imminent. Take immediate protective action. A watch is conditions that are favorable for a hazard to develop or move in. Stay alert. If advance warning and other circumstances permit, the preference for nonessential and non-emergency personnel is evacuation using specified routes and transportation methods. Installation emergency management organizations have plans and procedures to direct evacuation or direct movement of personnel and

family members to safe havens or civilian shelters. In some instances, evacuating or moving to a shelter or safe haven is more dangerous than remaining where you are. When there is a short- or no-notice emergency such as a hazardous materials event, you may be directed to shelter-in-place, that is, take temporary protection in a structure or vehicle, typically your workplace or residence. It is important to know for different emergencies which part of a building is safest and how best to keep the air safe to breathe. At the earliest safe opportunity, check in with your command. It is important to ensure that you and your family are accounted for and receive help if you need it. If you have access to the Internet, you can report your status through the Army One Source and Military One Source websites. If you cannot get online, the Army Info Hotline, Army One Source and Military One Source have established hotlines that you can call to relay messages to your command and to others who may be concerned about your welfare. In some cases, the Secretary of Defense will direct all DoD-affiliated personnel in the affected area to report their accountability status as soon as possible. When this happens, if you have access to the Internet you are to report your status online through the Army Disaster Personnel Accountability and Assessment System at https://adpaas. army.mil. ADPAAS provides a way for Army personnel and their families in the disaster-affected area to report their status and how they were affected by the event. It also provides commanders a means to assess the impact of the disaster on Soldiers and their families and provide assistance where needed.

READY ARMY — FROM PAGE 14 “Be Informed” is the most important of the three tenants. Learn about the emergency plans for your housing area, place of work, the installation and the surrounding community. Before, during and after a disaster, it is critical that you maintain contact and accountability with your chain of command and listen for the most up-to-date information from local emergency officials (e.g., Installation Operation Center, Fire & Emergency Services, and Provost Marshal Office). Your chain of command and local emergency management officials will provide critical instructions, such as when to evacuate or shelter-in-place and where to find assistance. Fort Lee has systems in place to keep you informed. The Mass Warning and Notification System or “Big Voice” can be heard throughout Fort Lee and in the newer buildings Mifflin Hall. You can also watch for messages displayed on the electronic signboards located around the installation.

Second Chance Prom a ‘Resounding Success’ by Sherry Williams Kidd CASCOM Family Readiness Specialist

“It was a magical and elegant evening,” said Viktoria Green, CASCOM Family Readiness Group leader, as she described the recent Second-Chance Prom hosted by her organization. “The whole celebration was filled with dancing, fun and lots of surprises,” she continued. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen Soldiers and Department of the Army Civilians and their spouses and dates happier or enjoying themselves more.” Green is talking about the Sept. 17 event at the Hilton Garden Inn, Colonial Heights. Around 230 guests attended the prom that is believed to be a first among Army recreational activities or its FRG program at a minimum. “When the evening started, our guests walked into a ballroom area that was meticulously decorated,” noted Lindsay Kidd, an event coordinator for the FRG. “Our theme was Castle CASCOM, and there was a huge castle backdrop where couples posed for pictures. The beautifully adorned tables included elegant linens and ribbons, as well as crystals and lit candles glowing in delicate hurricane holders. Black velvet tapestries, ivy and old bricks adorned the walls.”

Fort Lee Celebrates Retiree Appreciation Day by Kimberly K. Fritz Family/Community Life Reporter

Fort Lee flung open the doors of Faughn Hall and welcomed more than 200 retired military members to the annual Retiree Appreciation Day Saturday. For the second year, retirees enjoyed a “one-stop shopping” opportunity to hear the latest news about retiree benefits, get their flu shots, identification cards, vehicle registrations and other services. Maj. Gen. James L. Hodge, Combined Arms Support Command and Fort Lee commanding general, welcomed the retirees and their spouses telling them how honored he was to have them at Fort Lee. “Thank you all for your service,” Hodge said. “You remain very valued members of our community. This is a very important day for us because it provides the installation a continued opportunity to foster the camaraderie and good will each of you knew while on active duty. It also provides an opportunity to update you on services and programs available to you.” Hodge told the veterans about the completion of the BRAC 2005 build-up and encouraged them to take a look

around the installation and see the changes. Col. Rodney Edge, U.S. Army Garrison, Fort Lee commander, introduced himself to the retirees and welcomed them to the installation, elaborating more on the changes made installation-wide. “This post is not the same as it was when I was last here in 1989,” Edge said. “I had to ask for directions to places that I thought I knew. Much has changed here at Fort Lee but not the support and services we provide here. Those services will never change. We are here to take care of you.” Edge said RAD is designed with veterans in mind. “It’s an opportunity to renew acquaintances, listen to guest speakers, get news on benefits and entitlements, and take care of important business – like getting new ID Cards and medical checkups,” he said. “We’re fortunate to have the Soldier Support Center as our base of operations, it will make it easy for you to get everything you need done under one roof.” Retired Navy Lt. Cmdr. Chuck Barnes lives close to Fort Lee and said he finds getting his flu shot at RAD is much easier than visiting the clinic. “It’s easier to come here, and it’s a great initiative to

show retirees they are appreciated,” Barnes said. Retired Marine Lt. Col. Ismael Ortiz, who is the deputy assistant secretary for Veterans’ Employment and Training Services for the Department of Labor, was the guest speaker. Ortiz entertained the retirees with stories from his 28 years on active duty and shared a few elements of his current work for veterans. “My job is to take care of young transitioning veterans and retirees like you here today,” he said. Other community leaders, including Kenner Army Health Clinic Commander Col. Joseph S. Pina, shared updates from their organizations. Retired Sgt. 1st Class Willie R. James, a former member of the Transportation Corps, said he was delighted to see transporters on Fort Lee and that he always attends RAD. “It’s more convenient to get my flu shot here,” James said. “But the main reason I come is to see other retirees and listen to how things are going for them.” Retired Sgt. 1st Class Carroll Bartholomew said he enjoys talking with Soldiers about how their careers are compared to his. “It’s good to see how we are doing,” he said.

Staff Sgt. Randy Case made a surprise proposal to Kimberly Garnowski during Second-Chance Prom.

An elaborate red carpet flanked by velvet ropes led attendees into this “fairy tale” setting and pictures were taken as guests made their grand entrances. “Dancing, exquisite food, a royal court, VIPs and dignitaries, and even an impromptu proposal were all part of this totally free evening for prom participants,” added Sgt. 1st Class Atiya McNair, another event organizer. The prom committee also consisted of Sherry Kidd, CASCOM Family Readiness Specialist; Sgt. 1st Class David Walker; Sgt. Nelson Santiago; Staff Sgt. Fransanda Parker and Staff Sgt. Edward Tee. “Our committee conducted extensive fundraising in the months that led up to the Prom,” said CONTRIBUTED PHOTOS Capt. Ellis Allen, HHC Lindsay Kidd, Josie Emery, Dedra Carter, Staff Sgt.

Randy were going to have the first dance, and we did.” “This was truly the classiest, most elegant and definitely the Case came forward, called up his date, Kimberly Garnowski, most ambitious undertaking I have ever seen tackled by our dropped to the floor on one knee and proposed on the spot. “I felt like a princess,” Kimberly said through tears, “and I FRG, or by any organization for that matter,’ Green said. “I am especially grateful for the superb work of our events coordiwill cherish the moment and this night forever.” When Kimberly accepted the proposal, the ballroom full of nator (Kidd).

Jenkins Jr. “We are well aware that functions like these go a long way in improving the morale of our thanked them for their selfless service and patriotism. Another highlight of the gathering was the ceremony honor- Army community, and this particular event was head and shouling the five CASCOM princes and princesses who were elected ders above the rest.” On Sept. 22, the prom committee was recognized for its hard as nominees for prom king and queen. Each received an assortment of prizes before the “crowning moment” when Sgt. 1st work by Maj. Gen. James L.

Hypertension: The Silent Killer by Dr. Michael Neylon KAHC Active Duty Clinic

Hypertension is often called â&#x20AC;&#x153;the silent killerâ&#x20AC;? because many who have it experience no symptoms. An estimated one in three adult Americans has hypertension. Untreated, it increases the risk of heart attack and stroke and can damage kidneys and increase the risk for blindness. Hypertension is generally defined as a blood pressure reading above 140/90. Multiple blood pressure readings will usually be collected by your medical practitioner before the diagnosis is confirmed. This may take the form of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;five-day blood pressure log,â&#x20AC;? or something similar, to record multiple readings. The data help to determine if an elevation is â&#x20AC;&#x153;isolatedâ&#x20AC;? and may not need to be treated, or if it is consistently elevated and does need treatment. The top number, the systolic blood pressure, corresponds to the pressure in the arteries as the heart contracts and pumps blood forward. The bottom number, the diastolic pressure, represents the pressure in the arteries as the heart relaxes after the contraction. Hypertension oc-

curs when arterioles, small blood vessels that branch off from arteries, become contracted making it hard for blood to pass through them. As a result, blood pressure rises, causing your heart and other organs that contain a lot of blood vessels to work harder. This high pressure in your organs can damage them, like having high oil pressure in your carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s engine, which can damage its gaskets and seals. Even though most people consider high blood pressure to be 140/90 and higher for the general population, these levels may not be appropriate cut-offs for all individuals. Many experts in the field of hypertension view blood pressure levels as a range, from lower levels to higher levels. Such a range implies there are no clear or precise cut-off values to separate normal blood pressure from high blood pressure. Individuals with so-called pre-hypertension (defined as a blood pressure between 131/81 and 139/89) may benefit from the lowering of blood pressure by lifestyle modification and possibly medication, especially if there are other risk factors such as diabetes or kidney disease. Risk factors for hypertension include family history,

male gender and being of African-American descent. Smoking, alcohol use, obesity, sedentary lifestyle, age greater than 35 and contraceptive use by women are also factors for possible hypertension. Obviously, lifestyle changes are the best intervention and should be tried first when treating hypertension. These include dietary changes such as reducing added salt (sodium) and avoiding high-sodium foods like chips/ snacks, processed meat, fast food, cured or smoked products, etc. Weight reduction and increased exercise to maintain an ideal body weight can lower blood pressure, as well as smoking cessation and decreasing alcohol consumption. Some over-the-counter medications such as decongestants and popular weight loss supplements may also contribute to elevated blood pressure if used regularly. You should discuss these things with your medical provider if your blood pressure is elevated. Screening, diagnosing, treating and controlling hypertension early in its course can significantly reduce the risk of developing strokes, heart attacks or kidney failure. Have your blood pressure checked today.

Reserve Unit Gets New Leader Richmond-based 80th Tng. Cmd. Introduces Maj. Gen. Bill Gerety by Debra Fulk Special to the Traveller

The Richmond-based 80th Training Command (U.S. Army Reserve) welcomed a new commanding general and said goodbye to another during a change of command ceremony Saturday at the Post Field House. More than 250 Soldiers, family members and friends watched as Lt. Gen. John Sterling, deputy commanding general and chief of staff of the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, passed the unit guidon to incoming commander Maj. Gen. Bill Gerety, who succeeded Maj. Gen. John McLaren. “This is an important event,” Sterling said during his remarks at the event. “The 80th Training Command and TRADOC have a close and interdependent relationship. It is an enormously productive relationship with huge value for the Army.” Sterling went on to laud McLaren for his accomplishments. “The Army owes special thanks to the commander of the organization that has accomplished this huge and diverse mission – Maj. Gen. McLaren,” he said. “Fortunately, he has enormous experience in managing large and complex organizations. “His leadership, his steady hand on the rudder of this new Reserve command has been absolutely masterful,” Sterling continued. McLaren led more than 800 Soldiers, mostly from the then 80th Training Division, in combat operations in Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom from 2005-2006. He then took command of the newly formed 80th Training Command in May

2008. Maj. Gen. Gerety comes to the 80th Training Command from the 81st Regional Support Command where he served as the commanding general from September 2009 to August 2011. Sterling said his is more than qualified to continue the mission. “Fortunately, the Army Reserve has given us just the right commander to pick up the colors and lead the 80th to still greater accomplishments, to add

to its young but already accomplished record,” he said. “Maj. Gen. Gerety brings to the position experience at the tactical, operational and strategic level, and his experience on the Army staff and in private life will surely pay dividends in the management of such a large and diverse organization as the 80th Training Command.” “It is my distinct honor to have been selected to serve with you,” said Gerety during his remarks. “I look forward to an, as of yet,

unwritten chapter of evolution in the history of this fine organization.” Due to inclement weather, the ceremony was moved inside the field house and the pass in review was removed from the event. The commanders did take the time to review the troops from their positions at the head of the formation before the passing of the unit colors. Soldiers and Army Civilians from post headquarters and division headquarters around the country attended the event. The 80th Training Command (The Army School System) headquarters is located in Richmond. It trains Soldiers in 63 military occupational specialties to support the Army’s

operational objectives. The third largest command organization in the U.S. Army Reserve, the 80th T.C. is comprised of more than 7,300 Army Reserve Soldiers assigned to 13 brigade units aligned under three major subordinate divisions. Units are located nationwide from Pennsylvania to Puerto Rico and from the Carolinas and Georgia to California. It has an operational control training relationship with a unit in Hawaii and a support relationship with a unit in Germany. The 80th was established as the 80th Division and nicknamed the Blue Ridge Division. It was formed in August 1917 at Camp Lee (now Fort Lee).

History Takes Aim The Ordnance School received its newest piece of heavy metal Tuesday in the form of a historic U.S. Army 12-foot railroad gun. The artillery piece, built in 1899, was used as a stationary coastal defense weapon until modified to be installed on a railcar in 1920. This allowed the gun to be moved to different defense locations. Twelve of these guns were produced, but this is the only one left (serial number 9) in existence. After World War II, the guns were used to test different munitions until they were decommissioned in the mid 1960s. The gun can be viewed at the Ordnance Campus and is located by the flyover bridge.

         The ACAP Transition Assistance Program was established to meet the needs of separating service members during their period of transition into civilian life by offering job-search assistance and related services. The law creating TAP established a partnership among the Departments of Defense, Veterans Affairs, Department of Transportation and the Department of Laborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Employment and Training Service, to give employment and training information to armed forces members within one year of separation or two years to retirement. TAP helps service members, their spouses and dependants (18 or older, ID card holders) make the initial transition from military service to the civilian workplace with less difficulty and at less overall cost to the government. An independent national evaluation of the program estimated that service members who had participated in TAP, on average, found their first post-military job three weeks sooner than those who did not participate in TAP. TAP consists of comprehensive 2.5-day workshops at the Fort Lee ACAP Center, 1401 B Ave., building 3400, Room 126, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and at selected military installations nationwide. TAP is also given at overseas stations. Professionally-trained workshop facilitators from the State Employment Services, military family support services, Department of Labor contractors, or VETSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; staff present the workshops. Workshop attendees learn about job searches, career decision-making, current occupational and labor market conditions, and resume and cover letter preparation and interviewing techniques. Participants also are provided with an evaluation of their employability relative to the job market and receive information on the most current veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; benefits. A VA representative is available on the Thursday after TAP. The federal

jobs search workshop is offered on Friday, in the same week as TAP. In addition to the TAP workshop, ACAP counselors are available to assist with your employment research. They will assist you by developing or improving interview skills and resume writing ability. Classes and workshops are available at the ACAP Center. Registration is required. ACAP Center hours of operation are 7:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Register with ACAP to attend the TAP Workshop. Call (804) 734-6612.
