KENNER CONNECTION | HEALTHIER YOU

At Kenner, we have a new strategy called Army Medicine 2020. Instead of pills, procedures, and doctors visits, we are emphasizing the Performance Triad that focuses on the three pillars of wellness: eating right, being active and sleeping well. Kenner Army Health Clinic invites the community to attend a free weeklong event, titled “Kenner Kicks off Warrior Care Month.� It will introduce a 12-week campaign that will challenge our Soldiers, families and the entire

Fort Lee community to score points towards good health. The football-themed activity kicks off today with the observance of the Great American Smokeout and World Diabetes Day. Tobacco-free living and prevention and management of diabetes will be highlighted. Quitting techniques, and healthy lifestyle tips will encourage participants to achieve wellness based on the three pillars of the Performance Triad. The Kenner Clinic vision is your active participation in our 12-week Warrior Care Challenge. Participants will earn points do-

Learn about quality education offered through Army Centers Army Continuing Education joins forces with educators from across the country to celebrate American Education Week, Nov. 18-22. The theme of the observance is “Army Continuing Education – Strength and Resiliency through Education,� which reinforces the Army’s commitment to provide quality education for Soldiers worldwide. In 1919, representatives of the National Education Association and the American Legion met for

the first time to discuss the fact that 25 percent of the country’s World War I draftees were illiterate. The representatives sought ways to generate public support for education, which ultimately resulted in the knowledge and capabilities-based force the Army is today. The Army Continuing Education System offers a variety of programs to assist Soldiers in establishing and achieving education goals. No longer tied to

ALU recognizes top instructors, educators Amy Perry Production/News Assistant Editor

Fifteen Soldiers and three civilian employees of the Army Logistics University were recognized as 2013 Distinguished Instructors or Educators of the Year during a Nov. 7 ceremony here. John E. Hall, ALU president; Col. Robert A Harney Jr., ALU commandant; and Command Sgt. Maj. Clifton H. Johnson, Logistics Noncommissioned Officer Academy commandant, honored the 18 individuals in front of a large gathering in Green Auditorium, Bunker Hall. The top officer, warrant officer, NCO, civilian and educator of the year who will represent ALU at a CASCOM-level competition in the near future were also named. The top awardees are: Capt. John D. Smith, officer instructor of the year; Chief Warrant Officer 4 Aura I. Sweeney, warrant officer of the year; Staff Sgt. Perry G. Sarluca, enlisted instructor of the year; Thomas J. Seely, civilian instructor of the year; and Latrice J.

Tollerson, educator/instructor of the year. During the ceremony, Harney said the awardees were stellar individuals. “These are professionals producing professions,” he said. “I sat on the board for this competition, and it was tough to judge because of the individuals who competed. In my two years of going through this selection process, this was a tougher year based on the quality of the individuals we honored.” Hall agreed with Harney and noted the instructors are truly exceptional. “The ones that we are going to recognize today have stood out and have gone through this competition and deserve the recognition they are about to receive,” he said. “I want to congratulate them for it.” The top officer – a Combined Logistics Captains Career Course instructor – said his two years leading, coaching and mentoring students helped pave the way for this achievement. “I was overjoyed when my name appeared across the screen,” he said. “As one of many

didn’t think I had a chance because the NCOs competing with me are all amazing leaders.” The other individuals who were honored as distinguished instructors are: Maj. Thomas J. Faichney, Capt.

Three sustainers among pack of 2013 Army Best Warrior hopefuls Patrick Buffett Managing Editor

Three sustainment Soldiers will be among the 24 individuals competing for the titles of U.S. Army Noncommissioned Officer or Soldier or the Year at Fort Lee next week. Staff Sgt. Andrew Gregory and Sgt. Ryan Lewis, both 88-November transportation management coordinators, will represent the Army Material Command, and Pfc. George Smith, a 92-Yankee unit supply specialist, will represent the Army Special Operations Command during the annual Best Warrior Competition that draws top troops from around the world. Twelve major Army commands in all are represented. The

event is overseen by the Sergeant Major of the Army and organized by the Combined Arms Support Command. “I’m ready to show my fellow non-commissioned officers, other Soldiers and my children that you can accomplish anything if your desire and will are strong enough,” said Gregory, who is stationed at Rock Island, Ill. “(This journey) represents a lot of mentorship and training from my previous leaders. All of it has culminated into something great, and I’m ready to truly show what the NCO Corps can do.” “I see this as another chance to earn respect from my family, peers and (chain of command),” said Smith, a 3rd Military Information Support Battalion (Airborne) Soldier at Fort Bragg,

N.C. “I want to demonstrate my future potential to be a successful leader who sets the standard for others to emulate.” The field of competitors for Best Warrior this year also includes a heavy construction equipment operator from Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash., a military policeman from Fort Wainwright, Alaska, a military lab technician from Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md., and a combat engineer from Schwienfurt, Germany, among others. Reservists and National Guardsmen are also in the mix. The level of Army experience ranges from one to 17 years.

FAWMA statue unveiling Nov. 7 at the U.S. Army Women’s Museum. Lt. FAWMA is the only statue of a female Soldier located on an Army installation.

T. Anthony Bell Senior Writer/Special Projects

The first statue of a female Soldier on any U.S. Army installation was unveiled here Nov. 7. The fiberglass figure, called Lt. FAWMA – for Friends of the Army Women’s Museum Association – depicts today’s modern female Soldier clad in a field uniform and carrying a standard weapon and other field gear. The unveiling took place at the entrance of the Army Women’s Museum where roughly 300 people watched. The guests included Brig. Gen. John E. O’Neil IV, the U.S. Army Quartermaster General and commandant, U.S. Army

Quartermaster School; Command Sgt. Maj. James K. Sims, U.S. Army Combined Arms Support Command CSM; and Command Sgt. Maj. Spencer L. Gray, the QM School regimental CSM. The statue, bronze in color, and standing roughly 10-feet tall including its concrete platform, received an enthusiastic welcome from the crowd and emotional responses from many of the longtime supporters of the facility. They included retired Lt. Col. Pat Sigle, president of FAWMA, the statue’s namesake and chief benefactor. She said the statue reflects the image of today’s female warrior and symbolizes the next chapter in women’s military history.

“We knew the moment they (the museum) came to us with this idea that it was something that we had to do,” she said with moist eyes. “We had to show the younger generation that they mean something and that we’re proud of them carrying on the great tradition of women in service.” The Lt. FAWMA concept is largely the brainchild of AWM technician and retired Soldier Ron Bingham, who said a modern update was needed to complement the facility’s Pallas Athena, a statue of the ancient goddess of war, which greets visitors at the facility’s front entrance. “She is the foundation of our museum,” he said, “but we want-

ed to get the modern story. We have lots on World War II and the 1950s and ‘60s, but we don’t have as much on the present and we wanted something to attract young Soldiers.” Toward that end, Lt. FAWMA wears the combat patch of the 1st Infantry Division, a Fort Riley, Kan.-based unit that frequently deployed during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. She also wears the 94th Training Division patch that pays tribute to the nation’s reserve components. Female Soldiers had a hand in Lt. FAWMA’s development from start to finish. Bingham said an image of his wife, retired Master Sgt. Debra Bingham, taken dur-

ing the first Gulf war served as an inspiration. Retired Sgt. 1st Class Sherry Williams modeled the equipment Lt. FAWMA carries, and Sgt. 1st Class Naomi Rankin’s hair and bun were used to sculpt Lt. FAWMA’s hairstyle. Additionally, retired Col. German Velez and Sgt. Heather Norris of Fort Hamilton, N.Y, performed part of the final on-site inspections at the Kodiak Inc., studios of Brooklyn, N.Y. where it was created. Brig. Gen. Janice M. Haigler said the statue is long overdue. “Honestly, it’s about time, and I appreciate the symbolism (of the statue),” said the deputy commanding general, 311th Signal Command located at Fort Shafter, Hawaii. “They’ve tied the past and present and all three components. It is pretty neat. Obviously, there was a lot of thought put into it.” Sgt. 1st Class Carlandra Moss thought so as well. The guest speaker said during her remarks the statue inspired her to think of two qualities – “relevance and value-added” – that encourages Soldiers to enhance their individual abilities. “As I stand here thinking about those two qualities, the impact of this statue is breathtaking,” said the executive assistant to Sims. “It reminds me of the great female leaders of whose shoulders I stand upon. “ Following the unveiling ceremony, many of the well-wishers hugged and congratulated each other and posed and snapped pictures with the statue.

‘Warriors’ earn honor company nod “I thought I was just painting a sidewalk,” said Pvt. Whitney Garcia, an advanced individual training student assigned to Whiskey Company, 244th Quartermaster Battalion. “But it became way more than that after we started,” she added. “It was a chance to let our motivation shine and make others proud of us. We were able to leave a mark that many will see for a long time to come.” That art project – completed by Garcia and co-painters, Pfc. Ajah Kuykendall and

Pvt. Kiowa Berry – and several other factors gave Whiskey Company the win in its bid for the battalion’s “Honor Company” title in the first quarter of FY14. “I’m extremely proud and privileged to be leading such a motivated group of warriors, Soldiers and leaders,” said Capt. Adam Stear, the unit commander. “Any success from Whiskey Company is because of them. They prove their character daily through who they are and what they do.” The honor company compe-

tition recognizes the units in the battalion that “exude the highest proficiency in daily company operations as well as the highest level of motivation and esprit de corps.” According to Stear, multiple areas within Whiskey Co. were evaluated by the battalion to include overall Soldier knowledge, appearance of the company areas, and the overall command climate during daily operations and group events like the Nov. 1 battalion run that preceded the latest honor company announcement. “I believe the new painting of our company logo on the front sidewalk reflects the esprit de

Pvt. Whitney Garcia and Pfc. Ajah Kuykendall proudly show the art project they and Pvt. Kiowa Berry recently completed in front of the Whiskey Company entrance.

corps or our company and is really the thing that clinched the title for us,” said Stear. “That’s why I’m giving our young warriors most of the credit.” It’s a well-deserved nod, judging by the comments from the student painters. “The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential ... those are the things that will get you to success,” Berry observed. “Painting this sidewalk allowed me to leave my mark on Fort Lee before I went home. With hard work comes success. This is a reflection of that spirit.” – Whiskey Company

FORT A.P. HILL – The Explosive Ordnance Disposal Training Center here was renamed Nov. 6 to honor Capt. Jason T. McMahon, an EOD Soldier who was killed in action in Afghanistan on Sept. 5, 2010. McMahon was the commander of the 744th EOD Company, 184th EOD Disposal Battalion. He was leading a patrol in Laghman Province when enemy insurgents attacked it. During the firefight he exposed himself to withering enemy fire to ensure his Soldiers could use the limited cover available. While directing his Soldiers’ fire toward the enemy he was critically injured and later died from his wounds. His actions ensured his Soldiers’ safety and saved lives. McMahon’s widow Jennifer; daughters Trinity, McKenzie and

Azlyn; and McMahon’s brother Ty attended the ceremony. Col. Jack Haley, the Army’s 38th Chief of Ordnance and commandant of the U.S. Army Ordnance School, Fort Lee, was the featured speaker. Haley said it was a privilege to honor one of the nation’s heroes by naming the EOD Training Center after him. “Just over three years ago, Capt. Jason McMahon paid the ultimate sacrifice for which he was posthumously awarded the Silver Star,� Haley said. “Jason’s heroism stands as a demonstration of the finest quality of our troops. I cannot think of a better way to celebrate Jason’s life and service as an American soldier, a hero, husband, father and friend.� Following his remarks, Haley and Command Sgt. Maj. Clinton G. Hall, the Ordnance Regimental CSM, presented Jennifer McMahon the Ordnance

Order of Samuel Sharpe on behalf of her husband. The award recognizes individuals who have served the Ordnance Corps with integrity, moral character and professional competence and whose selfless contributions stand out in the eyes of their seniors, peers and subordinates. Haley, Hall and Jennifer McMahon then unveiled the bronze plaque that will be mounted on the EOD Training Complex. Haley and Hall presented McMahon with a framed replica of the plaque and a certificate. Col. Mark A. Fitch, chief, EOD Directorate, and Marcus E. Markham, director, Munitions and EOD Training Department, joined Haley, Hall and McMahon for the ribbon cutting that symbolized the official opening of the training center. “He influenced a lot of people and a lot of Soldiers,� said

McMahon Explosive Ordnance Disposal Training Center at Fort A.P. Hill.

McMahon’s widow. “That was his main goal. He was good at teaching; even though he was a captain and had all those guys under him, he took on teaching as a second role. He definitely had the demeanor to be the leader and do those things.

“It means a lot to us, and I know it means a lot to this unit and people surrounding it. This is an occasion that will stick with us and will show the girls what he’s done and what he means to all these gentlemen and ladies. It’s very special,� she said.

LT.FAWMA Continued from page 4 Soldiers, male and female military members and young and old. Col. Norma Bradford, for one, said the ceremony was “awesome” and thought the statue accurately captures the struggle of women Soldiers. “I haven’t inspected every inch of it,” said the Soldier assigned to the QM School’s Reserve Component Affairs Office, “but it looks like it adequately depicts everything we’ve been through.” Dr. Francoise Bonnell, AWM director, said although she saw the statue prior to the unveiling, she saw it in different light after she witnessed the crowd’s admirable response. “I now understand its true impact upon people,” she said. “I knew it would have an impact just because I served myself for 22 years, and I know there are not any statues out there. I didn’t realize how powerful it was to connect the generations. You have the WAC veterans and young and old Soldiers of today seeing her value. That’s an impact I didn’t anticipate.” Gray said the statue and the ceremony made it a memorable occasion. “It’s not just a great day for our female warriors, it’s a great day for our Army,” he said. “We’ve recognized the contributions that our female Soldiers have continued to make to our great nation. That’s what this is about today, and that’s what makes this the best Army in the world. No other Army in the world shows this kind of gratitude for the female contribution.” The Army Women’s Museum is open TuesdaySaturday, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Saturday, 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. It is closed Sunday, Monday and on national holidays.

NA T I V E Performance troupe sheds light on culture T. Anthony Bell Senior Writer/Special Projects

S

inging and dancing for the purpose of entertainment is one thing, but when used to educate, they can provide context to messages that make them more meaningful and substantial. The subject in case was the National Native American Heritage Month observance held at the Lee Theater Tuesday. The teachers – the multi-tribal Youghtanund Drummers and Singers – used music and dance to explain the culture of their tribes to dispel myths and bring clarity to a distorted image and history. “There’s a lot of misinformation about native peoples out there,” said Youghtanund’s youngest member, Sarah Arrigo, about its mission. “We are mythical to many people. They either don’t know we still exist or they think we are what they see in old Westerns, and that’s

not truly what we are about.” The students, about 500 Soldiers, mostly from the Logistics Noncommissioned Officer Academy, packed the theater. They witnessed vocalizations, drumbeats and dances that accompanied messages and information ranging from the meaning of eagle feathers to the esteemed place of women in tribal societies. Near the end of the performance, many gathered around the drummers in a participatory number. One of the NCOs said the performances were unmistakable. “To be honest with you, I thought it was a dynamic program,” said Command Sgt. Maj. Clifton Johnson, LNCOA commandant. “I thought it was enlightening and you would have to be impaired in some way to not have a better appreciation for the history and culture of Native Americans.” Maj. Ebony Lambert was the guest speaker for the observance. The Installation Equal Opportunity Office coordinated the event, and the LNCOA hosted it.

(CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT) Dr. Aaron Winston of the Meherrin-Chowanoke tribe in North Carolina breaks down the various misconceptions about native peoples during a forthright and candid opening presentation. Winston is a member of the Youghtanund Drummers and Singers group that performed Tuesday during the National Native American Heritage Month observance at the Lee Theater. Youghtanund aims to educate audiences about Native Americans. • Lenny Harmon, a member of the Lenape tribe in Delaware, performs the prairie chicken dance that has its roots in attracting potential female partners. • Audience members gather around the Youghtanund drummers during the final number. • Alicia Gear stands proudly on the stage as Winston explains her “regalia – not costume” during his presentation. Gear is part Choctaw and Monacan. • Sac and Fox tribe member Sarah Arrigo and her 4-year-old daughter Lily, perform a jingle dance for prayer and healing.

Capt. Zatochi K. Mattocks took charge of the Combined Arms Support Command’s Headquarters and Headquarters Company during a change of command ceremony Nov. 7. He replaces Capt. Tessa A.M. Jones, outgoing commander, as she transfers to Huntsville, Ala., to attend the Army’s acquisition course before reporting to Fort Belvoir. “Capt. Jones has made a significant impact here at CASCOM,” said Col. M.C. Steve Cherry IV, chief of staff. “She has provided exactly the right leadership and expertise to ensure the command remains the premier institution that it is. You came into this command fully ready and prepared to accept the challenge and to excel.” Mattocks joins the command from the 2nd Corps Materiel Management Center, Fort Bragg, N.C., where he served as the

executive officer. He joined the Army in 1992 as an enlisted petroleum supply specialist before receiving his commission as a quartermaster officer in 2005. “I know that Capt. Mattocks is more than qualified and capable, and I am confident that he is up for the task ahead of him as the new HHC commander,” Cherry said. “I have the utmost faith and confidence that he can, and will, continue to ensure that HHC, CASCOM remains viable and relevant.” Mattocks has served in leadership positions in a variety of units including the 259th Quartermaster Company and 3rd Military Information Support Battalion (Airborne) at Fort Bragg. His awards and decorations include: Bronze Star Medal; Meritorious Service Medal (3rd award); Army Commendation Medal (4th award); Army Achievement Medal (7th award); Good Conduct Medal (4th award); Afghanistan Campaign Medal (1 campaign star) and Iraq Campaign Medal (3 campaign stars).

Maj. Gen. Larry D. Wyche, Combined Arms Support Command and Fort Lee commanding general, recognized Command Sgt. Maj. James K. Sims, the command’s senior noncommissioned officer, for his accomplishments and dedication to duty during a Nov. 4 ceremony here. CASCOM is a major subordinate command of the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command and is the Army’s sustainment think tank, responsible for training more than

180,000 students a year. In bidding Sims a fond farewell, Wyche was joined by many senior leaders including Command Sgt. Maj. Daniel Dailey, U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command’s senior NCO. “When I think of him, a few things come to mind: discipline, adhering to the rules, fitness and engaged leadership,” Wyche said. “When I hired him, one of the questions I asked was, ‘what do you want to accomplish?’ He told me he wanted to make a difference for the right reason. Command sergeant major, you made a dif-

ference – credentialing, sponsorship programs and attacking sexual assault are just a few of the areas where you left a blazing trail of success.” Sims will be departing CASCOM to assume the senior enlisted position at the U.S. Army Materiel Command, Redstone Arsenal, Ala. AMC is the Army’s provider of materiel readiness, which includes technology, acquisition support, materiel development, logistics power projection, and sustainment to the total force, across the spectrum of joint military operations.

Sims, CASCOM’s senior noncommissioned officer, Nov. 4. Sims will be reporting for duty as the senior NCO at the U.S. Army Materiel Command, Redstone Arsenal, Ala.

“Command Sgt. Maj. Sims is a Soldier who will give the shirt off his back and the boots off his feet. He will never say no as long as he has one gallon of gas or one bullet to give,” Wyche added. “That’s what AMC is going to receive;” a noncommissioned officer who knows what it takes to be a war-fighter logisti-

cian.” Although many of the speakers attributed the command’s current success to Sims’ leadership and forward thinking, he emphasized that it was a team effort. “The fact of the matter is, it is everyone here who is responsible for the success of this great command,” Sims said. “It is

to compete to earn top honors Continued from page 3 a complex, real-world-oriented competition,” according to an event news release. “During the three-day competition,” it continued, “these elite warriors will test their Army aptitude, conquering urban warfare simulations, board interviews, physical fitness tests, written exams, and warrior tasks and battle drills relevant to today’s operating environment. In addition, they will go before a selection board comprised of six senior sergeants major from across the Army. This board, chaired by Sergeant Major of the Army Ray Chandler, evaluates competitor appearance, military bearing and knowledge of critical Army topics.” Winners will be announced on the evening of the final day of the competition, Nov. 22, at the Lee Club. This is the first year that the awards ceremony will be conducted here, and it will be broadcast live at www.dvidshub.net. The Soldier and

Noncommissioned Officer of the Year will receive prestigious honors in recognition of their achievements and represent the Army at special events throughout their 2013-2014 tenure. Best Warrior was originally scheduled for Oct. 15-17, but the partial government shutdown forced the SMA to postpone the competition. In an earlier article about that delay, Chandler expressed his appreciation to the participating Soldiers and the many individuals who planned and coordinated the competition. “My sincere thanks goes out to everyone,” he said. “Whether you’re assigned to Fort Lee or other nearby commands, I know you have studied, practiced and prepared to be part of the cadre and support staff that will make this event a success very soon. I appreciate your commitment – and your flexibility.” During Best Warrior week, the event website will feature daily photo uploads, video clips and articles written about the competitors.
