COMMANDER CORNER | FORT LEE UPDATE
CG offers Lee update, highlights success Maj. Gen. Larry D. Wyche CASCOM and Fort Lee Commanding General
Greetings Team! I continue to be in awe of your dedication and commitment and how the Team at the Army’s Sustainment Think Tank works tirelessly to execute the mission. Over the past 16 months at the Army’s premier learning institution, we have stayed the course when appropriate, adjusted when needed, broke new ground and continuously delivered game-changing professionals and solutions to support the war-fighter. None of this would have been possible without the outstanding and unmatched efforts of the Team, who through their expertise, abilities and dedication make this the best place to live
and work in the Army. I have a firm belief that high standards, with consistency, are the marks of true professionals and all are trademarks of Team Lee! Unfortunately, this year our civilian members of the Team have been through significant stress and hardship due to administrative and emergency furloughs. The furloughs were in no way reflective of the hard work, commitment and dedication put forth by these great Americans. Please know that we couldn’t have been successful this year without their unequivocal support! Our accomplishments this year have been impressive, despite challenges and budgetary constraints. I have witnessed everyday a Team who is committed to help shape and prepare a globally responsive sustainment force for the next fight.
This commitment led to the development of the Globally Responsive Sustainment white paper that takes a critical look to the future and identifies a wide-range of implications. Today, sustainers around the globe can access the paper on the Sustainment Knowledge Network and provide their comments. At the same time, we continue to focus our energy on the fight to prevent suicide and sexual assault and sexual harassment in our ranks. Each has a direct bearing on our mission readiness and our ability to function as a Team. We launched the “what can I do? NOT what I should have done” campaign to extend a helping hand to those who may be suffering. The campaign and the overall educational awareness program has proven to be quite valuable. Also, we have all hands on deck in combating sexual assault and sexual harassment in our ranks. It is our number one priority. We must protect America’s sons and daughters, as well as family members and Department of Army Civilians by maintaining an environment and command climate
that is consistent with our Army values. To this end, we relooked the process of selecting individuals to serve as sexual assault response coordinators and unit victim advocates, improved interaction with victims and their care, conducted a stand-down day and rolled out a SHARP Dashboard. We must ensure leaders build the trust and accountability necessary to eradicate sexual harassment and assault, while eliminating predators and the culture that enables them from our ranks. While we addressed these two critical issues facing our Army, at the same time, we embraced the policy change of allowing women into jobs that were previously closed. Today, we have successfully integrated the first females into three Ordnance Military Occupational Specialties – 91A (M1 Abrams Tank System Maintainer), 91M (Bradley Fighting Vehicle System Maintainer) and 91P (Artillery Mechanic). A total of 44 women have either graduated and reported to their first unit or are in class. SEE UPDATE, PAGE 8
Of mighty shoulders and the muscle behind them T. Anthony Bell Senior Writer/Special Projects
Young people being guided by service dogs and restricted to wheelchairs may not be a pleasant sight but are stark reminders that military service and sacrifice are invariably linked. Veterans Day gives us pause to understand that linkage. It honors the mil-
lions of men and women, past and present, who raised their hands, vowed to defend and sacrificed above all else. Arguably, veterans are our greatest national treasure. They are the gems that stand out among the masses of the American public, rising to the courage and resolve required to set aside differences and

fight for common causes. While Veterans Day affords Americans opportunities to celebrate those who have donned uniforms, veterans should acknowledge there are no better people to serve. The American public is the impetus behind our armed forces and its support is particularly essential to winning wars.
In short, Veterans Day is a reflection of who we are as Americans – people willing to step toward the front lines of battle and those willing to support them back home. Our popular sentiments about military service are not an overnight phenomenon. Vietnam, for one, allowed us to retrospectively examine the critical rela-

tionships between popular support, troop morale and success on the battlefield. Undoubtedly, it set us on a corrective path that has resulted in future successes. Today, the American military and veterans enjoy unprecedented popularity and support, and its collective approval has resulted in honor and treatment commensurate with their
service. That’s to say veterans above all should feel pride in their service but feel even better about serving such a great nation, one that by and large stands behind them. Together, the two are just as potent as any weapons system and likely the most important elements in the world’s most advanced military machine. So, on this Veterans Day, SEE VETS, PAGE 21

CASCOM civilian earns award for leadership through excellence Shelley A. Richardson, programming and analysis evaluation chief, Combined Arms Support Command, was awarded the Advancing the Role of Women in the Army: Leadership through Excellence Award Oct. 30. It is presented annually to one military and one civilian leader who have made a positive impact through their involvement, leadership and contributions in affecting policy and promoting diversity in the Army. It also honors the visionary leadership of people whose ideals and dedication help foster a positive work environment and furthering the integration of women in the Army. Richardson received this honor for her 33 years of support to the Army. She spent 30 years on active duty, and after her retirement, continued her service as a Department of the Army Civilian. “I am honored to receive this award,” Richardson said. “I have had great assign-
ments and wonderful people to work with in every one of them. The Army is a great career, both in uniform and as a civilian.” Some of the highlights of her career include: graduating in the first class to include women at the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1980; becoming the first female Soldier to command the Army and Air Force Exchange Service – Europe and Southwest Asia; first woman to serve as commandant of the Army Logistics Management College; and the first Army Logistics University president. Throughout her career, as noted in the citation, Richardson has always strived to set the example for her Soldiers. “Be your best every day. You should appreciate your opportunities and make the most of them,” she said. “If you are open to new experiences and remain flexible, there are many opportunities out there.”

WASHINGTON – Victims of sexual assault now have the option to request civilian legal representation while seeking justice. During criminal proceedings in a courtroom, the defendant has a lawyer. The state is also represented by its own lawyer, the prosecuting attorney. But the victims of sexual assault have historically not had the benefit of a state-provided advocate as they are interviewed, as they testify on the witness stand, and as they move through the other complexities of the criminal justice system. This is no longer the case.
As of Friday, Soldiers who report that they have been the victim of a sexual assault are able to have a Special Victims Counsel assigned to them. A SVC is an active duty Army attorney, provided at no charge to the victim, who will represent the victim’s interest throughout the course of the legal proceedings that might follow the report of a sexual assault. Col. Jay McKee, a lawyer with the Army’s Office of the Judge Advocate General, serves as the program manager for the Army’s Special Victims Counsel program. “Once the crime happens, or alleged crime happens, and the victim is seen by a victim advocate, or at the hospital or by a Victim
Witness Liaison – however the victim is taken into the system – they are notified that they have a right to an SVC.” It is a misconception, McKee said, that the prosecuting attorney in a criminal case represents the victim of a crime. The prosecutor represents the government’s interests or society’s. But McKee added that in almost all cases those governmental interests are the same as the victim’s – to see that justice is done. “The prosecutor wants justice. He or she is serving the community and is serving the military justice system for good order and discipline of the force,” McKee said. “And 99 percent of the
time, that interest is aligned with the victim’s. They want the same thing.” But sometimes, McKee said, the victim might have concerns that require the assistance of an attorney. For example, the defense attorneys might also want to bring into the trial a victim’s medical records or past sexual history. That might possibly damage a victim’s reputation or embarrass him or her. “They can try to get that introduced on the record,” McKee said. “The defense is there to represent the defendant, the accused; they are going to put on the best case for the accused. Sometimes that is not in the best interest of the victim to undergo cross examination in a public trial about her past sexual history or to have her personal medical records be reviewed by parties to a courtsmartial.”
The SVC can help the victim make sense of the ramifications of trial, and help him or her understand what will happen. McKee also said that while the SVC will not participate in the “adversarial portion” of a trial – in that there will not be a third table in the courtroom for the SVC and the victim – the SVC will be able to make motions on behalf of the victim, talk to the Special Victim Prosecutor, the trial council, trial defense attorney, and the staff judge advocate “in terms of what justice looks like for the victim.” Right now, there are about 45 SVCs in the Army, across the United States, and in Europe. There will soon be an SVC in Afghanistan as well. The total number of SVCs the Army will ultimately need will be determined after a year of evaluating manpower needs for SVCs, McKee said.

Lucille Martin, 102 years old, holds a flag presented to her by a Fort Lee color guard. Nov. 1.The flag commemorates her 10 months of service as a government employee at Camp Lee in 1946. Martin is a resident of the Dunlop House Assisted-Living and Specialized Alzheimer’s Care facility in Colonial Heights.
Reﬂections of a centenarian Former Camp Lee worker recalls early Army days T. Anthony Bell Senior Writer/Special Projects
Lucille Martin seen a lot in her 100-plus years, and she is able to extract a good bit of detail about her experiences and observations. Got a question about the Model T Ford? She can tell you that they wouldn’t start without the magneto posts. Need a firsthand account of what the German POWs were like at Fort Lee? They were not the bad guys they were made out to be, even though she barely understood them. How about wanting to know the best way to advertise for a business? Don’t get her started about word-of-mouth, the best means for promotion, she’s certain, even in the age of the Internet That’s plenty of evidence for her sidekick Ann Harrison. She is convinced of her friend’s keen
sense of recollection. “‘Give her an hour,’ she says, ‘and she can tell you anything from 1911 to 2013,’” said Harrison with a playful, sarcastic chuckle. A bit of an overstatement? Not so much as it is fact, considering Martin was born in 1911 and probably sharp enough to provide details – as they were told to her – about life in rural South Carolina where she was reared. Harrison said she also has exceptional wisdom among other attributes. “She’s quite the lady,” said the retired Fort Lee civilian, now an employee at the Dunlop House Assisted Living and Specialized Alzheimer’s Care facility in Colonial Heights. “I’ve never seen her get upset. She presents herself well.” Martin has resided at Dunlop four four years. A Fort Lee color guard recently presented the centenarian with a U.S. flag for
service to the nation as a government employee. That period of service began in 1946. During that time, Camp Lee was a training center and hundreds of thousands of Soldiers had occupied its confines during World War II. More than 30,000 were still here after it ended. They lived in wooden barracks that dotted the landscape and scenes of them marching in formation were more of a common sight than cars since most Soldiers didn’t own one. And dirt, not asphalt, covered most of the roads since the installation still held a temporary status. Martin would have been in the midst of it all as a 27-year old. That’s when the self-proclaimed country girl took a job as a commissary cashier here. During the latter part of World War II, she accompanied her husbandSoldier, John, to Camp Lee on permanent assignment. Her stint
of employment also included her most satisfactory job in, of all places, the motor pool. “I grew up on a farm and wasn’t afraid to get dirty,” she said. “I would get up sometimes at 5 or 6 o’clock in the morning and drove water for the stock – cows, horses, mules and pigs. I always kept clean, though. That was one thing my mother taught me – wash your hands, sit up straight and be nice to everybody.” During the WWII era, the installation’s motor pool was located near Hopewell “above the blacktop” she said. That would mean it was situated among the facilities that currently occupy the Shop Road area. Her use of the word “blacktop” surely meant that Route 36 was paved and most of the installation roads were not. Her memory of the motor pool and adjacent areas, however, doesn’t end with the blacktop. “Well, they had the motor pool up there, and it was fenced in a little bit,” she recalled. “Across the street was a huge place where they had all the tanks for gasoline, and they had a lot of secretaries in there. That’s where they did all the work on the motors.” Martin was familiar with motors from her days on the farm. She learned much about automobiles, especially the Ford Model A “with the rumble seat” and a stripped-down Ford Model T with the crank start. “I’d get up there and drive it,” she said of the latter. “I learned how to put the magneto posts down in the bottom. It wouldn’t run if you took the magneto posts out.” Rumble seats were fold out seats that sat near the trunk of the Model A. Magnetos were small electric generators that used magnets to produce alternating current. As a chauffeur, Martin’s duties consisted of driving dignitaries around post and to the surrounding areas as well as transporting goods. She also performed dispatcher duties. When she wasn’t doing either, she was soaking up knowledge about au-
tomobiles and everything related to them. That begs the question, “As a woman, did she feel out of place working in a profession dominated by men? Did she feel alone or isolated? The answer is neither. “There were a lot of WACs working there,” said Martin, implying that Soldiers in the Women’s Army Corps gave her a sense of inclusion and her personality enabled her to easily make friends. Martin also remembered the sizable numbers of foreigners who worked in the motor pool and who she transported around post. There were Italian and German prisoners of war. Roughly 1,400 were shipped to Fort Lee and hundreds of thousands more were sent to camps throughout the country during the war. “We would take the German prisoners out to where the golf course is now,” she recalled. “At the golf course, they would pick up ‘zooka shells, take them back and make beautiful lampshades out of them.” The area adjacent to the Cardinal Golf Club was a bazooka range, said Luther Hanson, Quartermaster Museum curator. Though the Germans were largely antagonized in the media, Martin said she didn’t see them that way. “I saw them differently than in the movies – I guarantee you that,” she said, noting she was taken by the way they talked. “They were nice young men, and everybody got along well at Fort Lee. I can’t remember any trouble.” Martin spent roughly 10 months at Fort Lee. She had the option of staying on as a civil servant but declined the offer. “I just wanted to do something else,” she said. Martin instead went to work at retailers like J.C. Penny and Lerners in Petersburg. She also sold furniture, selling enough at one retailer to win a trip to Bermuda. SEE CENTENARIAN PAGE 6

With an outgoing personality, I can sometimes take on too many tasks and overwhelm myself.” Pastimes: “I love football and love watching America’s team, the Dallas Cowboys. I also love working out.” Dream car: “A 1966 Ford Mustang – I love old, muscle cars and the Ford Mustang, to me, is the most attractive car around.” One place you would go on vacation: “Somewhere in Europe.” Favorite music artist: “Kenny Chesney – his songs are about life. It feels likes he’s singing about me.” Worst fear: “Losing my family.” Pet peeve: “When I see Soldiers and their uniforms are jacked up. It bothers me because that’s part of your job – being squared away and looking the part.” One lesson you learned that you like sharing with others: “To take your time; be careful; think everything through. Don’t say, ‘Oh well, I was young and dumb.’ That’s everybody’s favorite phrase, and it’s now becoming everybody’s excuse.” You’re older than most of your peers. How do you relate to them?: “I try to lead by example. I’m just an E-4, but I try to do the right thing.” One defining moment: “When I joined the Army. I decided to enlist at 35, and I thought I had done and seen it all. The Army introduced me to a whole other world.” One thing about you that nobody knows: “I am a Christian man, but I don’t go to Church as often as I would like to. I don’t have time.” Talk about childhood: “My father was a hard-working man, and we (his children) all got jobs as soon as we turned 16. It was very difficult growing up. I’m a first-generation American. My parents are from Mexico, and they both have grade-school educations. We grew up a very close-knit family, and we helped each other out. I love my brother and sisters, and they love me.” The celebrity or historical figure you admire: “Probably George Washington. Since joining the Army, I have a different outlook. The challenges he was faced with are the chal-
lenges I would love to tackle.” Why you joined the Army: “For financial reasons. The economy took a toll. I had been working for 10 straight years and had been laid off.” Your reasons for staying in the Army: “Part of it is comfort – my family is very well cared for – and part of it is there are a lot of misguided young people here, and I want to lead them.” What you like about your MOS: “I like the fact that everybody here works together. It’s very close-knit.” What people don’t know about 92Ms: “That the people who do this work actually like it. We feel that we make a difference and we do.” You deployed within the past year: talk about your experiences: “When I was deployed, my wife was pregnant. I had to experience the birth of my child on Skype. Shortly thereafter, we had some babies come through our morgue. I felt uneasy about it. I hadn’t held my newborn child in my arms, and to think that if something had happened to me, I would have never got to hold him. That experience brought out that notion. I get goose bumps all over my body thinking about it even now.” What it takes to be a Soldier: “It’s a lot of hard work, and its not for everybody. You have to go to bed early, work late and go without seeing your family.’ Best thing about the Army: “The benefits and the fact that you’re going to see places you otherwise would not be able to see.” Worst thing about the Army: “The fact that you have to spend so much time away from family.” Goals: “I want to do this as long as I can – until they kick me out – and also take advantage of benefits like education.” ±&RPSLOHGE\7$QWKRQ\%HOO

UPDATE | CASCOM, Fort Lee CG
offers information about state of post Continued from page 2 CASCOM leads the DA effort to develop occupational credentials, licenses and apprenticeships. Our Soldier for Life credentialing efforts enhance Army readiness by validating technical knowledge and widening a Soldier’s skill sets. Also, we will expand by 18 additional MOSs over the next 16 months. We stood up the Soldier for Life office to manage this critical effort that requires regular coordination between our proponent schools, Army Logistics University, Soldier
Support Institute, Forces Command and the Training and Doctrine Command. As we work to accomplish our many tasks, we have not forgotten or lost sight of our commitment to provide the very best for our military, civilians, retirees, family members, installation partners and the local communities. In pursuit of our commitment, the largest Army lodging facility in the continental United States opened in late December 2012 and will open an on-site restaurant in 2014. Also, the state-of-the-art Brig. Gen. Terence J. Hildner Training Support
Center opened and can accommodate training for approximately 1,000 Soldiers a week at peak operation. The facility offers a digital classroom, weapon simulator and training aids. Additionally, a 21,000square-foot state-of-the-art youth center was completed in June and will provide safe and inviting alternatives in a campustype environment for Fort Lee’s middle school youth and teens. I truly have come to appreciate the special partnership and bond that we share with our installation partners and the local communities. Each has been with us every step of the way and that truly has made a difference. The relationship that Fort Lee shares with the surrounding communities began more than nine decades ago and continues to flourish. The teamwork and
cooperation that radiates from both communities is invaluable and will become even more critical as we move forward. The months ahead will be demanding and challenging, but I am confident that the Sustainment Team will continue to excel while producing excellent results for our customers.

More than 1,200 ordnance troops participate in annual safety runs More than 1,200 military members from the 16th Ordnance Battalion participated in a pair of Halloween Safety Runs on the Ordnance Campus, Oct. 20 and 31. The earlier event was conducted at midnight to accommodate the schedule of night-class Soldiers. Both runs featured costumes, cadence and plenty of camaraderie. The enthusiasm for this annual fun and safety run was reflected in the costumes worn by the command teams, faculty members and the participating students. Some featured battery-operated lights and motion. A couple of groups demonstrated their team spirit by dressing up as Justice League superheroes and characters (thing 1 and thing 2) out of a Dr. Seuss book. Command Sgt. Maj. Cheryl Greene, 16th Ord. Bn. CSM, showed her less-serious side by dressing as a clown for the first run and a jester for the second event.
Lt. Col. Steven Carozza, battalion commander, wore the scary costume from the movie “Scream” for the Oct. 20 run and donned a curly wig and huge “70’s-discoguy” moustache for the Oct. 31 event. During their opening remarks, the command team thanked the service members for their hard work and enthusiasm, and acknowledged the participation of second lieutenants from the Army Logistics University Professional Leader Development Program. They also placed a lot of emphasis on safety as Fort Lee heads into the holiday and winter seasons. Both of the 3.1-mile runs began at Whittington Field and circled the Ordnance Campus. Along the route, Soldiers passed by the equipment they are learning to maintain, including munitions, Humvees, Bradley Fighting Vehicles, Paladins and M1 Abrams Tanks. Cadre members called

cadence, while company guidon bearers circled formations to rouse Soldiers. “It was a truly remarkable sight to see all those Soldiers running in costume, singing cadence,” wrote Capt. Robert Lobdell, commander of Alpha Company,16th Ord. Bn., in a written summary for the Traveller. “While the costumes and team spirt were the centerpiece of the run, I think the efforts of the first sergeants and cadre members is another true story of leadership that should be highlighted. Understanding the nightshift Soldier’s difficult sched-
ule and conducting two separate runs to accommodate them is a good example of their efforts to stay engaged with their Soldiers and provide opportunities for max participation. “Building camaraderie and esprit de corps in every ordnance Soldier is a focus of the Ordnance School,” Lobdell also noted. “Investing time, through engaged leadership, is the principle method ordnance leaders use to convey this critical message.” – 16th Ordnance Battalion

EMO offers steps for successful recycling National Recycling Week runs Nov. 1115, and the Environmental Management Office encourages all Fort Lee members to participate in recycling efforts. Recycling is a way to ensure that items we’ve finished using are returned to the resource pool to be turned into something useful or cleaned and reused. It conserves raw materials and saves additional energy that manufacturers would otherwise use in producing new products from scratch. Recycling also reduces the amount of reusable material taking up vital landfill space, which is a growing issue across the United States. In addition, recycling can decrease pollution that results from waste disposal and reduce the consumption of raw materials which conserves our natural resources. Not everyone feels motivated to recycle, and indeed, it can sometimes seem like a complex undertaking. After understanding the benefits and getting into the habit of recycling, many realize it’s not that hard and it soon becomes second nature. Making the commitment to recycle in your household or workplace is a large benefit to our country and our environment. Make a commitment to recycle as much as you can. When reducing your family’s consumption and reusing all that you can, recycling can help to reduce the amount of items going into your garbage each week. This

practice will ensure that you are contributing to a sustainable and long-term commitment to your community by making the most of our environmental resources. By recycling regularly, you show other people that it is possible. Recycling can offer lasting results that make a difference in your community. Get informed. The majority of households in Virginia’s urban areas are becoming part of a municipal or similar recycling collection program. If this is the case for you, you’ll already have a grasp on the basics of recycling your materials. Even with programs available to you, there can be some confusion as to what is recyclable and what is not. Each program can be different depending on your state or county. Much of it is dependent on the availability of nearby recycling facilities. And if you’ve moved around a bit, you might be surprised to learn that something you could recycle in one place cannot be recycled somewhere else. Be sure to read the accompanying information associated with your household recycling collectors, which may be printed on your recycling container, printed in brochures, and on websites. If you can’t find the information anywhere, call your recycling collector for questions. On Fort Lee, you can call Directorate of Public Works Environmental Division at (804) 734-4798
or 734-3766 for recycling guidance. Know what can be recycled. Many items are recyclable and over time, more items are added to the list of what can be recycled. Recycling is dependent on the community you live in or the military installation that you work at. Fort Lee’s Mandatory Recycling Policy is located at www.lee.army.mil under the Services Tab; click Fort Lee Policies, Next click the Tab with Environmental in the Title, then click on Policy 19-03 Fort Lee Recycling Policy. As a general rule these items can be recycled: • All cardboard, paper board boxes etc. • All paper, white copier paper including phone books, magazines, newspapers and waste office paper • All metals, aluminum cans; and any scrap metal to include steel food cans, coffee tins • Plastics with recyclable symbols on them; usually PET or type “1” plastic and H.D.P.E or type “2” plastic • Plastic bags (these should be recycled at local plastic bag drop-off points – AAFES has one at the Main Exchange) • Glass bottles • Yard waste must be place in clear bags • Toner/Ink cartridges can be recycled on Fort Lee; take to Building 7121 • Electronic waste – but not hand-receipt items – by taking it to recycling center • Used light bulbs, batteries, oil/antifreeze and hazardous waste can be recycled by calling (804) 734-3811 Set up your own personal recycling system that works best for your area. Recycling requires space in the home or
workplace, so it’s important to work out how to deal with this in a way that doesn’t negatively impact living or working space or create a hazard. There are a lot of great options that you can either purchase or make to keep recycling sorted and safe within your home and work before putting it out for collection. Some of your choices may depend on the preferences of the collector – in some areas, mixing recyclables is acceptable, while in others, they will only collect separated recyclables or even collect different types of recyclables on different weeks. At Fort Lee the recycling is commingled. Commingled recycling means customers can place all recyclable materials together and it is sorted after it is collected. Commingled recycling makes it easier for the customer. The recycling process on Fort Lee should follow the aforementioned policy. Be a clean and thoughtful recycler. Before adding some items to recycling, ensure that they’re clean. Rinse food or drink residues out of bottles and cans. Cleaning recyclables will prevent odor and pest infestation. Spread the word. Become a champion for recycling by motivating neighbors, influencing work groups, getting leadership inspired and spreading the recycling attitude! During National Recycling Week, Recycling Action Teams will review the recycling process here at Fort Lee. When they visit your building, ask recycling questions or give them new ideas for improving the Fort Lee recycling process. – Environmental Management Office

WK2UGQDQFH6ROGLHUVVXSSRUW 0DWRDFD(OHPHQWDU\)HVWLYDO Forty-five Soldiers from Bravo Company, 16th Ordnance Battalion, earned high praise from Matoaca Elementary School administrators and its Parent, Teacher Association after an evening of volunteer work at the facility’s annual fall festival on Oct. 25. The ongoing partnership between Chesterfield County schools like Matoaca and the ordnance battalion at Fort Lee has been nurtured over the past year by frequent volunteer projects and special events in which Soldiers and students interact. For the festival, the Bravo Bulldogs – led by 1st Lt. Emily White, company executive officer, and Sgt. 1st Class Moses Torres, platoon sergeant – helped with the setup and operation of 17 game stations throughout the
school. The sounds of laughter and cheering as students competed for candy and prizes clearly showed the impact of their work. Pvt. Jonai Henderson, a 91-Charlie (utilities equipment repair) advanced individual training student, said she “enjoyed every moment” of the evening and found it to be rewarding from personal and professional standpoints. “This is a great way to interact with children in the community and show the partnership that the Army shares with its neighbors,” she said. “It also is fun just being back in a (grade) school environment. I was able to play some of the games with the students, and it just made us feel like kids again.” As the event drew to a close at
MILITARY AND GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES
around 8:45 p.m., PTA President Sheila Camacho and other parents and teachers thanked each of the Soldiers. Their smiles and expressions of gratitude were accompanied by a smorgasbord of deserts that the volunteers brought back to share with their fellow Soldiers in the barracks. “When I asked one group how they felt about the volunteer event, the response was overwhelmingly positive,” Torres wrote in a note to the Traveller. “They indicated that they all want to continue volunteering and stay involved in their community when they return home or move on to their next assignment. “That’s great to hear,” he continued. “It means we not only contributed to the strong bond between Fort Lee and the sur-

The NCO Academy organized the early morning event in recognition of the October observance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. “This is a serious issue,” Johnson noted during his opening remarks. “Thus far in 2013 alone, 232,240 individuals have been diagnosed with breast cancer ... It truly underscores the importance of awareness and regular screening.” (ABOVE) First Sgt.

VETS | Supportive public is the muscle
behind our ﬁghting men and women Continued from page 2 thank you veterans, for accepting the challenge of service in blind faith. Your actions are the hefty shoulders upon which freedom stands. Furthermore, thank you America, for honoring those with the mighty shoulders; those souls who decidedly risk their lives for the wellbeing of others. Thank you for telling them you stand steadfastly in their corners, no matter how much you agree or disagree with their mission; For showing them their sacrifices are worthy of your hopes, thoughts and prayers. Thank you for sending them off to foreign lands
with swelled chests, confidence and assurance; for resisting the urge to abandon the whole when some of the parts fail. Thank you for brightening their days with care packages, letters and other goods as they face daunting challenges in unfamiliar lands; for consoling and assisting them when they’ve suffered the loss of a buddy. Thank you for understanding that war produces terrible tragedies – the loss of limbs and eyesight and invisible wounds that are slow to heal; for celebrating every hill taken, battle won and enemy defeated; for showing your gratitude and pride in
their accomplishments upon returning home. Thank you for providing services and assistance to their family members in their absence; for realizing military service makes it difficult for veterans to find jobs, buy homes, get an education and raise families; for recognizing that military service is our nation’s most distinct honor and one none should ever take lightly. Thank you for understanding that a pledge to serve is a pledge to die, if necessary, to preserve our way of life; and for knowing that mighty shoulders have to be strengthened – not just on Veterans Day but everyday.

KENNER CONNECTION | VACCINES, APLSS
Kenner announces new APLSS slogan Tereasa Wade KAHC Public Affairs OfďŹ cer
When beneficiaries visit Kenner Army Health Clinic, they may notice signs around the building featuring a red apple that has been bitten to the core and the words: â€œKenner Army Health Clinic is committed to the core! Send your APLSS survey back to keep Kenner on track!â€? What is it all about: Itâ€™s Kennerâ€™s new campaign slogan to underscore the importance of sending back the Army Provider Level Satisfaction Survey that beneficiaries receive in the mail after a visit to the clinic. The slogan is another way in which Kenner encourages beneficiaries to assist the clinic in improving the quality of care for Soldiers, families and retirees. The satisfaction survey was created by the Office of the Surgeon General. Patients are randomly selected 24 hours after a visit with a physician or other health care provider.
â€œThe promotion of the APLSS survey to our beneficiaries is one of the best ways to recognize an agency for providing great care and to enable that care platform to become better resourced over time as a result of these outcomes,â€? said Col. Thomas S. Bundt, commander, Kenner Army Health Clinic. â€œOur staff is dedicated to their work, and to show them how much we appreciate their efforts, there is no better way than through our APLSS survey systems.â€? The survey program selects active duty, family members and other beneficiaries in proportion to the members seen by their providers. Patients are sent a letter that asks them to complete the questionnaire online, on paper (fill out the responses and mail it back), or through a telephonic interactive voice system. Returned surveys are processed every day. All surveys received in the past two weeks are tabulated and posted to the Kenner website and disseminated to various military facilities.
Kenner receives its funding, in part, based on these responses. The higher the score the clinic receives, the more services it can provide for patients. â€œAs a result of these surveys last year, Kenner was able to achieve satisfaction scores that resulted in additional funding provided to our facility that was then used to resource staff, purchase the latest medical equipment and gain recognition to be chosen for additional facilities projects,â€? said Bundt. â€œAll of these actions benefit the consumers of our system of health.â€? While the clinic strives for the highest score possible (which is a five), if you feel it does not merit such a score, speak to the clinic nurse manager or patient advocate before leaving the clinic. â€œThe new slogan, chosen by the staff, demonstrates their commitment to the quality of care provided, and we are grateful for the feedback,â€? said Bundt. â€œIf you have any concerns during your visit, please bring those to the attention of the staff and allow them the opportunity to address those prior to leaving the clinic. This is a component of service that can then be reflected in your survey submissions. Thank you for allowing us to serve your health care needs.â€?

For the strength of the pack is the wolf ... and the strength of the wolf is the pack
The volunteer coaches of the Youth Sports Program football and cheerleading teams at Fort Lee organized a first-time pep rally Friday evening at the Post Field House. The event was a chance to “build excitement among the players and parents, and celebrate the positive aspects of playing team sports,” according to the organizers. One highlight of the evening was the introduction of the Wolf Pack’s new mascot “Rocky” (pictured above and left celebrating with players and family members in the stands). The youth cheerleading squads also performed several routines for the appreciative audience. The show of support fueled the Pee-Wee Wolf Pack players as they toppled the Hampton Devils, 13-12 in overtime, on Saturday. The two teams will meet again this Saturday in Hampton to determine who will play in the championship game on Nov. 16.
