COMMENTARY

Hodge Releases Summer Safety Message

FILE PHOTO

Maj. Gen. James L. Hodge

Memorial Day through Labor Day is known as the 101 Critical Days of Summer. This annual safety campaign is intended to remind us that we cannot lose focus on safety on or off duty. Family barbecues, swimming, fishing, softball, boating and camping are just some of the activities we like to engage in during the summer. The prolonged hours of daylight encourage us to participate in our favorite pastimes, and more activities mean more potential for accidents. Fort Lee held its Safety Awareness

Day Wednesday. There were demonstrations, vendors and displays at the Regimental Club. (See pages 24-25 for more information about the day’s events.) Child seat inspections, motorcycle inspections and seat belt checks were also conducted at the post exchange. Of particular interest this year was the premiere of TRADOC’s new interactive DVD called “OffDuty: On Guard” which was shown Tuesday at the Aerial Delivery and Field Services Department. (See

page 11 for more information on the premiere.) There are also other driving safety presentations being offered this summer. Take advantage of these dynamic training opportunities. Practice safety in your summer activities. We do not want to lose you or a family member to accidental death or injury. – Maj. Gen. James L. Hodge, CASCOM and Fort Lee commanding general

Fort Lee Spouse Voices Deployment Thoughts by Jessica Ryan Whittington Special to the Traveller

He’s gone, almost ready to leave or just coming home. Either way it is an incredible emotional strain. We signed up for this. For those who don’t have a soldier close to them in your lives, find one. I promise you the day your Soldier returns home from a long, tiresome deployment, it is the only other time to be able to feel the pride, sense of accomplishment, joy and pure relief that is comparable to childbirth. Don’t judge me unless you’ve been in my shoes. I have a heart that beats stronger for family because I know what it feels like to lose a loved one and to live in fear of losing one. We are overwhelmed with

menial day-to-day tasks. We miss sleeping next to them every night. We miss their touch. For the husbands who do share a huge part in daily activity, we are missing a set of hands that we get used to while they’re home. We are perfectly capable of changing every diaper, every light bulb. We can wheel the trash to the road. Funny, but with our much stronger other half gone, we somehow gain strength. We can move furniture, set up a house, clean the garage ... but rest assured our loves, that when you return, we will need you. To do those things, as well as hanging a picture or curtain rod for us, moving that little box. That strength is only heightened while they’re away, which is why you feel completely helpless right before they leave. It will pass. You can’t be completely

prepared for them to go. You will bear every weight of theirs at home. You will become something similar to a mother grizzly bear when it comes to your kids. You stress about being too hard or too lenient on them. You want to give them more because they are missing something for now. Realistically, they will be OK. You have to go on with your daily routine. I’ve learned to keep a list handy of things I randomly think of that I need to ask for when that phone call or chat time comes. I have no idea where our air pump or battery charger for the kids ride-on toy is. I have never changed the propane tank on my grill (thank God for good neighbors!). I had no idea what tires to put on my truck when they had to be replaced. Trying to keep your Soldier living in your daily life, as much “in the

know” as you are is a little hard. They may be able to talk to you multiple times daily, or hardly at all. Either way, as soon as you hang up the phone, you’ll remember something you wanted to tell them. When they don’t have a lot to talk about they might not want you to know what’s going on exactly, or it’s just simply because nothing is going on. They always want to hear your voice the same way you want to hear theirs. Finally, to remind you ... years ago in the wars before this one, there wasn’t the option to talk to your Soldier until he was home. Women were stronger, and simply waited. Letters were scarce, mail wasn’t very reliable. Thank God for the tremendous amount of communication that has come about since then. Remember ladies, this could be worse. ON

Celebration Highlights New Digs for Dogs by Amy Perry News/Production Assistant Editor

The military working dogs at Fort Lee officially have a new place to call home. During a ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday, guests toured the recently constructed kennels and observed a demonstration of the dogs in action. The 217th Military Police Detachment MWD section plays a vital role in support of TRADOC with numerous deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq. Additionally, they provide law enforcement mission support, force protection, and health and welfare inspections for the Fort Lee community. Col. Michael G. Morrow, U.S. Army Garrison, Fort Lee commander, said this project stood out for him, even with all of the other construction going on around post. “This one has been a labor of love,” he said during the ceremony. “It’s pretty special because it was one of the first things I got hit with when I came in as garrison commander three

years ago.” The U.S. Army Veterinary Command came to Fort Lee and told Morrow the kennels were in bad shape and would fail inspection. “They were trying to take care of our military working dogs,” Morrow said. “I asked ‘what did we need to do?’ The veterinary folks said we needed a new kennel.” The new 3,000-square-foot, $950,000 facility is environmentally friendly. The design reduces stress on the MWDs as there is more room and larger runs for the animals. “This new facility is to take care of these great animals that are partners in combat operations with our Soldiers,” said Morrow. “It’s a great facility. I’m amazed at the facility.” In addition to the new kennel, the building received an upgrade to the existing admin office, adding a full kitchen, two storage rooms, along with a veterinary and food prep area. This facility currently provides housing for three patrol/explosive detector dogs, three patrol/narcotic detector dogs and two specialized search dogs.

RIDING

RIGHT

Forty-Niners Press for Safe Motorcycling PHOTOS BY T. ANTHONY BELL

by T. Anthony Bell Senior Writer/Special Projects

The moments leading up to the 49th Quartermaster Group’s motorcycle safety ride May 19 had a relaxed, informal feel. Soldiers, old and young conversed, joked around and were generally at ease with each other prior to a ride that would take them to Waverly for lunch and back. That’s an indication of solid leadership, said the 49th’s top enlisted Soldier. “It’s also a sign of good team-building and camaraderie across organizational lines,” Command Sgt. Maj. James K. Sims said. “It is validation that we have good leaders and Soldiers who really want to do the right thing; to be a part of something great.” Sixty-five or so bikers came out to do the “right thing,” participating in the 49th’s Motorcycle Safety Ride that promotes safe riding through the practice of mentorship. The ride, which started and ended at the Bowling Center parking lot, is the umpteenth iteration of the event. It is none too many, said Master Sgt. Demetrius Jordan, one of the riders. “These events are very important,” said the 49th QM Group Consolidated Dining Facility manager. “The earlier we can get to them (inexperienced riders), the better our chances of are preventing accidents and fatalities across the board. It’s a matter of life and death.” The Department of Defense has had a dramatic increase in motorcycle accidents and fatalities in the past 10 years.

Although reasons for the mishaps vary, Sims said one accident is too many. “That’s why we’re here today,” he said, “to drive the point home, to get Soldiers to understand what these machines are capable of doing when they are out on the road.” The safety rides have been used to drive home the point, organized as informal leisure events designed to attract young inexperienced riders. Soldiers are given time off and allowed civilian attire as incentives to participate. And while safety is the theme, there is an emphasis on having fun. For those reasons, many riders look forward to the event, said Sgt. Antionne Young. “When you allow everyone to participate out of uniform, you get away from the flagpole,” he said, standing amongst a mix of touring bikes and sport cycles. “You know you’re still a Soldier, but the atmosphere is not as formal. The tension is not there.” There was definitely an absence of tension in the Bowling Center parking lot just before the ride began. The younger Soldiers, easily identified by their sport bikes or “crotch rockets,” were seen mixing it up with the older and more experienced riders, who seem to prefer the cruiser and touring bikes of Harley-Davidson and other manufacturers. After the riders inspected bikes and interacted for about an hour, the group received a brief from Sims, who again emphasized his key messages. “The main point today was, yeah, have fun,” he said, “but I needed to drive home what that motorcycle can do, how

Malwante Stewart awaits the go-ahead signal to move out. (FAR LEFT) Spc. Kirkman Daigle listens to the safety brief. Soldiers need to conduct themselves and the confidence you need to have when you’re riding,” he said. The round trip to Waverly took approximately three hours. Of the 65 riders who participated in the event, roughly 20 were from the 7th Sustainment Brigade at Fort Eustis, a that recently realigned under command of the 49th’s leadership.

Legal Explains How Costly DUIs Can Be by Capt. Florence Cornish Fort Lee Staff Judge Advocate Office

One of my duties as the special assistant United States attorney for the Fort Lee installation is to prosecute crimes and traffic offenses in the Eastern District Court of Richmond. My largest case load involves driving under the influence allegations. DUI is a vehicle infraction the Army does not take lightly ... and neither does the Commonwealth of Virginia. Lately in Magistrate Court, there is a common trend of individuals being pulled over for DUIs involving alcohol and refusing to submit a breath sample for the Intoximeter EC/IR II, which determines your blood alcohol concentration level. Some individuals feel if they refuse to submit a breath sample for the analysis, they cannot be convicted of DUI or that nothing will happen. That thought process is far from the truth and in reality when it comes to maintaining the freedom a driver’s license provides its owner. Drivers suspected of driving while under the influence can still be prosecuted for the offense even if they have refused to submit a breath sample for the Intoximeter EC/IR II. Also, a refusal does not lead to charges being dismissed. Moreover, how does refusing affect your post driv-

ing privileges? A DUI conviction is not needed for post driving privileges to be revoked. In accordance with Army Regulation 1905, Chapter 2, Section 4; driving privileges will be revoked for a mandatory period of one year if an individual is lawfully apprehended for DUI and that individual refuses to submit to a test to measure the alcohol content in the blood. This means that you will not be allowed to drive on post for a total of one year even if you are military. One night of irresponsibility can lead to your privileges being revoked. Be responsible and if you are going to drink, do not drive. Call a cab or a battle buddy but don’t drive. If convicted of DUI, you could face the following penalties: • First offense with a blood alcohol level of .08 – mandatory minimum fine of $250, one year of probation, one year of license suspension and completion of Virginia’s alcohol and substance abuse program. • First offense with a blood alcohol reading of .15-.19 – mandatory minimum fine of $250, one year

What you would do if you won the lottery: “I would buy a piece of land and adopt all the animals that people don’t want and take care of them.” Dream car: “A 1965 Chevy Nova. I just like classic, old cars.” Your worst fear: “Dying and not accomplishing anything in life.” One defining moment: “That would have to be the passing of my dad (Ramon Ramirez in October 2008). I didn’t think anything could happen to someone who basically led me through life. It was just a big life-shocker. It kind of made me realize I should not waste any time. He really didn’t accomplish too much; he really didn’t have anything to show when he passed – only a few artifacts he passed down to us. It made me feel like I want to accomplish more for my children. I want to leave them with a lot more –

something big and memorable.” Your talent: “I can make any situation a good time. It can be miserable outside, everybody can be unhappy, but I can somewhat pull something good out of the situation and make it seem all better.” Your biggest regret: “Not going to college. Instead of going to college after high school, I joined the Army.” The one person you most admire: “My mom (Clicerda Ramirez). She came to this country not knowing any English. She worked minimumwage jobs and went to nursing school and took care of the elderly to help us when we were growing up.” Talk about your love for animals: “My love for animals? I don’t know. At home, I have a zoo – three dogs, three snakes, iguana and a hermit crab. I got all this (a love for animals) from my dad.” Why you joined the Army: “I just came out of

high school and owned my own house by that time, and they basically let me go at my job. I couldn’t find new employment. I was living off of unemployment, and it just wasn’t cutting it. I always wanted to go to college so I walked into a recruiter’s office, and they told me the Army could help to pay for college. I signed up.” What it means to be a Soldier: “Knowing what your duties are and accomplishing them everyday. If anything bad were every to happen, protect your country, protect the people no matter what.” What you expect of your leaders: “I expect them to know me as a Soldier, to lead the way and teach me the right way.” What leaders should expect of you: “To execute – to be in the right time, the right place and the right uniform.” Best thing about Army:

“I would love to say the teaching; the way the Army goes about teaching things to Soldiers. The training is repetitive, but it sinks through. It’s muscle-memory to the point where, if someone asks you to do something, you just do it.” The worst thing about the Army: “The hurry-upand-wait. They’ll have us doing all these crazy formations ,and when we get there, we’re waiting for long periods of time. I like being busy; having something to do.” What you would be doing back home if you weren’t in the Army: “I probably would be waitressing.” Goals: “My short-term goal is to get as much rank as possible as an enlisted Soldier, and after that, I want to get my bachelor’s degree and teach chemistry.” – Compiled by T.

Rappel Re-Up

S

gt. Kimberly Pallis has seen the full spectrum of re-enlistment ceremonies, from the formal gatherings to the wacky, informal ones that include those done skydiving and on planes. To make hers distinctive, 217th Military Police Detachment Soldier asked the Provost Marshal, Maj. Donald Moore, to partake in one that involves being suspended, albeit near the top of the Fort Lee Rappel Tower. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted to be different,â&#x20AC;? she said. She recited her oath of enlistment in a near horizontal position, and when it was all over, she was committed to serve four more years.

A new Army safety training program earned rave reviews here Tuesday during a special presentation at the Aerial Delivery and Field Services Department auditorium. About 50 Fort Lee Soldiers attended the U.S.Army Training and Doctrine Command-sponsored event. The assembly included company commanders, first sergeants, platoon leaders and other staffers. The safety presentation, titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Off Duty, On Guard,â&#x20AC;? combines video vignettes and innovative software called â&#x20AC;&#x153;VEILSâ&#x20AC;? (Virtual Experience Immersive Learning Simulation) to allow the audience to actively participate in the training. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Basically, the viewer selects a character from one of the video segments, and he or she becomes that person,â&#x20AC;? explained Charles Betoney, the project manager from the TRADOC Safety Office at Fort Monroe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the real power of this thing,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re part of the story and you control what happens. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goes beyond a cognitive experience â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it elicits emotion and a sense of personal involvement.â&#x20AC;? In the opening segment of the video-based program, the on-screen narrator emphasizes the importance of managing

The viewer takes over from there by first selecting one of the two training modules. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Full Throttleâ&#x20AC;? addresses personally owned vehicle, motorcycle and all-terrain vehicle hazards with themes that include driving while intoxicated, peer pressure and pedestrian safety. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beyond the Waterfrontâ&#x20AC;? explores boating and water safety with emphasis on composite risk management, recreational drinking, peer leadership and combating stress-related issues. Next, the viewer chooses a character from one of the modules and the virtual experience begins. As the storyline unfolds, viewers make choices â&#x20AC;&#x201C; take a drink or stay sober, speed up or slow down, succumb to peer pressure or protect yourself and your friends â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the characters on the screen act accordingly. The program reinforces the positive outcomes of safe decisions and depicts the often tragic and horrific results of unsafe decisions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not boring or preachy,â&#x20AC;? Betoney said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the viewer making decisions and experiencing the consequences good or bad. It truly is an immersive learning simulation.â&#x20AC;? The power of the program also can be attributed to the believability of the storyline and characters. The vignettes are based on actual accident accounts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew the success of this project depended on the reality of the experience,â&#x20AC;? said Sharon Sloane, president and CEO of WILL Interactive, the civilian agency that produced â&#x20AC;&#x153;Off Duty, On Guard.â&#x20AC;? The company holds the patent for the VEILS software and has won multiple awards for its corporate training, educational and distance learning products. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did a lot of market research to make sure this product had the look and feel of what a Soldier might actually experience off duty,â&#x20AC;? Sloane said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While the characters in the presentation are actors, Soldiers were involved in the filming process and they brought us back in line if a scene or the dialogue strayed too far from reality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It had to feel natural as well,â&#x20AC;? she continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was important to incorporate some humorous moments and individual arguments because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real and believable.

Historic Cemeteries Offer Scenic Vistas by Kathryn C. Weigel Production Assistant

Looking for a scenic and interesting travel destination this summer? If so, you might want to consider one of the historic cemeteries in the Richmond and Tidewater regions of Virginia. National cemeteries, administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs, abound in Virginia. Each was created to inter the thousands of Americans who died here during the Civil War, but some have permanent residents that may be surprising. Most of Virginia’s 15 national cemeteries are listed on the National Register of Historic Places as are several civilian cemeteries. Some area cemeteries pre-date the Civil War. The oldest marked grave at Blandford Cemetery in Petersburg, for example, dates from 1702. Richmond’s Hollywood Cemetery began operating in 1849 and was designed by noted architect John Notman of Philadelphia. Among Virginia’s national cemeteries, City Point, Cold Harbor, Fort Harrison, Glendale, Hampton and Hampton Veterans Administration Medical Center, Quantico, Richmond and Seven Pines are within a 90-minute drive of Fort Lee. All of their addresses are listed at www2. va.gov/directory/guide. Medal of Honor recipients are buried at three of these cemeteries. Pvt. George A. Buchanan (Civil War) is buried at Fort Harrison (8620 Varina Road, Richmond). Cpl. Michael Fleming Folland (Vietnam) is interred at Glendale (8301 Willis Church Road, Richmond). Sgt. Maj. Augustus Barry (Civil War) is buried at Cold Harbor (6038 Cold Harbor Road, Mechanicsville). Quantico’s cemetery has nine memorials and several notable people interred there. They include Louis R. Lowery, the World War II Marine combat photographer who took the iconic photo of the first American flag rising on top of Iwo Jima’s Mount Suribachi in 1945. Also interred there are Gen. Lewis William Walt, assistant corps commandant, 1968-71, who was awarded two Navy Crosses, a Silver Star and two Purple Hearts, and Col. William “Rich” Higgins, chief of the 75-member United National observer group captured by a pro-Iranian Shiite Muslim group in 1988. He was killed by his captors on July 6, 1990. Hampton’s two national cemeteries are noteworthy as well. The one located on the grounds of the Hampton Veterans Affairs Medical Center complex (Emancipation Drive, Hampton) has only 22 graves and is the smallest cemetery overseen by the VA. The larger unit (Cemetery Road at Marshall Avenue, Hampton) is one of only 13 national cemeteries in which World War II prisoners of war are buried. The Phoebus Addition section of the Hampton National Cemetery is the final resting place for 55 German and five Italian POWs. The 28 German sailors from U-boat U-85 are interred there as well. Their boat

was sunk in the Atlantic Ocean off Cape Hatteras, N.C., on April 14, 1942, by the U.S.S. Roper. The City Point National Cemetery (10th Avenue at Davis Street, Hopewell) features a 20-foot-tall, white marble memorial in memory of those who died serving with the Army of the James. It was constructed under the direction of Maj. Gen. Benjamin F. Butler who commanded that Union army from April 1864 to January 1865. Enclosing this cemetery is a 19th century uncoursed fieldstone wall and wrought-iron gates. Blandford Cemetery (111 Rochelle Lane, Petersburg, (804) 733-2396) adjoins historic Blandford Church, built in 1735. The church is the home of 15 Louis Comfort Tiffany

stained glass windows that were commissioned in memory of Confederate soldiers by each former Confederate state. They were installed beginning in 1904. Buried in the cemetery is Maj. Gen. William Phillips, a British citizen and commander of British troops in Petersburg during the Revolutionary War. He died in May 1781 of malaria or typhus and was buried secretly. Gravestones, sculptures and tombs at Blandford offer visitors an array of funerary art from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. In June 1866, the first Memorial Day was celebrated to honor 30,000 Confederate soldiers buried on Memorial Hill there. Guided walking tours are available, including one on Halloween evenings, or visitors may stroll where their interests lead them. Hollywood Cemetery (412 S. Cherry St., Richmond, (804) 644-0711, ext. 334) is a favorite hiking area for many. The cemetery describes itself as “a living story in stone, iron and landscape.” The 135-acre expanse of hills, valleys and stately trees overlooks the James River where, in 1607, Captain Christopher Newport planted a wooden cross a few weeks after the founding of Jamestown. Hollywood is the final resting place of two American presidents, six Virginia governors, two Supreme Court justices, 22 Confederate generals and thousands of Confederate soldiers. A historical walking tour is available at 10 a.m. Mondays through Saturdays through October. SEE CEMETERIES, PAGE 28

Be â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Food Safeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Even at the Barbecue by Kevin L. Robinson DeCA Public Affairs Specialist

With good weather, military members will begin enjoying food and friends at backyard barbecues, but good food, good company and good fun can become tragic if people get sick from something they ate. Earlier this spring during the first of two food safety awareness campaigns planned for this year, the Defense Commissary Agency reminded its shoppers to stay true to the theme of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Barbecuing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Food Safe Way.â&#x20AC;? As they prepare to grill their meals, the commissary agency is encouraging â&#x20AC;&#x153;grill mastersâ&#x20AC;? to stay alert to proper food handling techniques. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing like grilling outside, but we want our customers to walk away from the barbecue with fond memories not food-borne illnesses,â&#x20AC;? said Army Col. David R. Schuckenbrock, DeCAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director of health and safety. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;food safeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; must be a habit for everyone to practice â&#x20AC;&#x201C; inside or outside.â&#x20AC;? To help develop those habits, commissaries are working with their local military health organizations to help educate their communities on proper food safety. This year, DeCA is applying the tenets of the Be Food Safe program â&#x20AC;&#x201C; clean, separate, cook and chill â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to the

outdoor barbecue. Commissary customers can look for store displays and handouts to help prevent food-borne illnesses as they dust off their grills to move their kitchens outside. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our mission, and a coordinated effort with our military health inspectors, sets us apart from civilian grocery stores,â&#x20AC;? said Joseph H. Jeu, DeCA director and chief executive officer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Through our campaigns, our goal is to help raise our customersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; awareness of safe food handling procedures,â&#x20AC;? he added. Schuckenbrock said that anyone planning a barbecue should first consider the following basic food safety tips: â&#x20AC;˘ Be clean. Before cooking or eating â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and definitely after using the bathroom â&#x20AC;&#x201C; wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. â&#x20AC;˘ Separate the food. Keep raw food apart from cooked food. That means use one plate or container exclusively for raw meat, poultry or seafood when moving food to the grill and another entirely for the cooked product unless the carrier has been washed thoroughly in soap and water. Also, keep cooking utensils and cooking surfaces clean from potential cross contamination. â&#x20AC;˘ Marinate in refrigerator. Any food that is marinating should be covered and kept in a refrigerator until ready to

cook. Also, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reuse marinade containing raw meat. â&#x20AC;˘ Cook it completely. This means you cannot take shortcuts on the amount of time it takes to thoroughly cook meat. Use a food thermometer to ensure meat is ready to eat. For example, ground beef and pork should be cooked at 160 F, chicken at 165 F and steaks and roast at 145 F. You can use your microwave, oven or stove to precook the food immediately before placing it on the grill. â&#x20AC;˘ Chill and freeze â&#x20AC;&#x201C; immediately. Food should never be off the grill or out of the cooler for more than two hours. And, when the outside temperature is hotter than 90 F, food can only be left out for an hour. â&#x20AC;˘ Hot, hot, hot. Keep hot food wrapped, insulated in a container and at or above 140 F. Eat hot take-out food within two hours of purchase. When reheating food on the grill, make sure it reaches 165 F. â&#x20AC;˘ Keep it cold. If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meant to be cold, it needs to stay that way at or below 40 F. Chicken salad and desserts can be placed on ice in coolers. Remember to drain the water from melted ice in those coolers and replace ice as necessary. For more information on eating food outside or handling food safely outdoors, visit the U.S. Food and Drug Administration website at http://www.fda.gov/Food/ ResourcesForYou/Consumers/ucm109899.htm.

      A 320member delegation of military representatives from seven nations in the Army Central Command area of operations visited the Combined Arms Support Command and Fort Lee May 13 following the Association of the U.S. Army Sustainment Symposium in Richmond. The delegation received a driving tour of the post, a professional military education brief and tour at the Army Logistics University. The event served to facilitate future engagement between ARCENT and its regional partner nations and provide them a greater understanding of CASCOM and the Sustainment Center of Excellence.

KENNERâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S CORNER

Kenner Offers Tips on Proper Disposal at Home by Christine L. Wetherbee KAHC Staff Pharmacist

Home-generated medical waste is created through the administration of injectable medications and other invasive or noninvasive procedures. It includes, but is not limited to, syringes, needles with attached tubing, and other materials. The most common type of home-generated medical waste is needles and syringes. It does not include medical waste produced by home health care workers (physicians, nurses, home health aides, etc.) Home-generated medical waste can be a potential threat. The disposal of home-generated medical waste is not regulated. Also, there can be a significant potential hazard to many persons including family members, sanitation workers and community members. Finally, home-generated waste can pose a threat to the environment. Sometimes people flush used syringes down their toilets. Because these syringes are light-weight and float, they are difficult to remove at the wastewater treatment plant. Often these â&#x20AC;&#x153;floatablesâ&#x20AC;? end up in rivers, along river banks, the ocean and on beaches. This was the case in 1987 and 1988, when numerous syringes were found on the beaches of Rhode Island. The Kenner Army Health Clinic Pharmacy offers the following tips for disposal: â&#x20AC;˘ Use a rigid container: Use a container with a screwon cap such as an empty laundry detergent bottle, bleach bottle, or 2-liter soda bottle. The bottles must be able to be marked with a warning label using a felt-tipped marking

Note that the heavier duty laundry detergent and bleach bottles are preferred to the soda bottle. â&#x20AC;˘ Label the container with a warning: Place a large label with a warning on the container: â&#x20AC;&#x153;CAUTION! SYRINGES - NEEDLES. DO NOT RECYCLE!â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;˘ Clip the needle, or recap discarded sharps: Clip the needle if you wish. You can purchase an inexpensive hand-held needle clipper at a pharmacy. After clipping the needle, carefully place each of the used needles and syringes into the plastic bottle with the screw-on lid. An alternative is to also recap or re-sheathe the needle. â&#x20AC;˘ Seal the container: After the container is full, seal the bottle with the original cap and wrap tape over the cap. â&#x20AC;˘ Properly dispose of the container: Dispose of the sealed, full container with your household trash. Do not place the container in the recycling bin. Another area of importance is unused medicines. You should never flush unused medicines because they can end up in our rivers and streams. To help protect our environment, throw unused, unwanted or expired over-thecounter and prescription medicines in the trash. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t flush medicines â&#x20AC;&#x201C; except when specifically instructed by the label. The American Pharmacists Association recommends the following steps for safely disposing of pills and liquids. These steps will help prevent their misuse or accidental ingestion by children or pets. <RX DUH LQYLWHG WR

New PWD DFAC Open For Business Soldiers from Romeo and Uniform Companies, 262nd Quartermaster Battalion, 23rd QM Brigade, filed in to a brand new dining facility May 16, 7:30 a.m., and ate breakfast there for the first time, along with a host of installation leaders. Brig. Gen. Gwen Bingham, QM School commandant, attended breakfast and visited with DFAC personnel, along with Col. Johnny Sokolosky, 23rd Quartermaster Bde. commander, and several leaders from the 262nd QM Bn. The DFAC is located next to the new 262nd QM Bn. headquarters and close to the Petroleum and Water Department. This will ease the logistical pains of ensuring that Soldiers are fed and maximizing their time in school. Soldiers enjoyed the new atmosphere and the food. Privates Tyler Boddeker and Jeremy Womack of Uniform Company agreed the food looks and tastes better than before, although the new DFAC uses the same 28day menu as all DFACs that participate in the Army Food Service Program Soldier Fueling Concept. The new DFAC will help bring consistency to AIT Soldiersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; diets because they will fully participate in the program that all Initial Military Training Soldiers participate in. Previously, many Soldiers were being accommodated by the 49th QM Group DFAC, which does not participate in the Soldier Fueling Program. Robert Seawright is the manager of the state-of-the-art DFAC. The facility can seat 548 Soldiers. The DFAC also features a main line, short order line, deli bar, and salad bar. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 262nd Quartermaster Battalion

Build Healthy Bones to Prevent Osteoporosis by BethAnn Cameron, Health Educator U.S. Army Public Health Command (Provisional)

A healthy body with strong bones is vital to overall wellness and quality of life. Bones play many roles in the body. They provide structure, protect organs, anchor muscles and store calcium. Many Americans suffer from bone disease and fractures, and many of these could be prevented. Half of all women and one in four men will break a bone. As of 2010, 10 million Americans already have the disease. Osteoporosis, sometimes called “porous bone,” is a disease of the skeletal system. A person’s bones become weak and brittle. This disease increases the risk of bone fractures, usually in the wrist, hip and spine. According to the U.S. surgeon general, by 2020, half of Americans aged 50 years or older will be at risk for fractures from osteoporosis. Men and women of all ages and ethnicities can develop osteoporosis. A number of factors can increase the likelihood of developing osteoporosis. Risk factors that can’t be changed include the following: • Being over 50 years of age • Being female • Being thin and having a small body size • Having a family history of osteoporosis Risk factors that can be controlled are:

• Diet • Physical activity/exercise It is important for people to build bone as young adults so they reach their peak bone mass in order to maintain bone health. A person with high bone mass as a young adult will be more likely to have a higher bone mass later in life. Inadequate calcium in the diet and inadequate physical activity early on could result in a failure to achieve peak bone mass in adulthood. Bone mass declines in older adults, increasing their risk of osteoporosis. The best defenses against developing osteoporosis are eating plenty of calcium-rich foods and doing weight-bearing physical activity. These actions build strong bones and enhance bone mass. Calcium Calcium is a mineral needed by the body for healthy bones and teeth, and proper function of the heart, muscles and nerves. Good sources of calcium include: • Dairy products – low fat or nonfat milk, cheese and yogurt • Dark green leafy vegetables – bok choy and broccoli • Calcium-enriched foods – orange juice, cereal, bread, soy beverages and tofu products • Nuts – almonds Weight-Bearing Physical Activity Adequate weight-bearing physical activity early in life

is important for strong bones associated with many positive health benefits. Weight-bearing physical activities cause muscles and bones to work against gravity. Some examples of weight-bearing physical activities include these: • Walking, jogging or running • Tennis, basketball or other sports • Jumping rope • Dancing • Weight lifting To reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis, include weight-bearing physical activity in an exercise plan to keep your bones healthy. Adults should have at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity most days of the week. Children should have at least 60 minutes of moderate physical activity throughout the week. Healthy bones prevent osteoporosis. Get enough calcium. Eat a healthy diet with fruits and vegetables and get regular weight-bearing exercise.

emorial Day, the unofficial start of the summer recreation season, presents numerous opportunities for fun. The increased activity that accompanies these opportunities also means an increased risk of accidents that cause injuries and fatalities. Decrease risks. Enjoy your summer, but whatever the activity, take all the necessary precautions to enjoy it safely.

● Put on a life jacket and avoid alcohol while boating. ● Put on sunscreen and a wide-brimmed hat to protect your skin from the sun. ● Drink cool, non-alcoholic fluids. ● Leave fireworks to the professionals. ● Make sure you and your passengers are buckled in safely every time you drive or ride in a motor vehicle. ● Put on insect repellent. ● Wash your hands often for 20 seconds. ● Wear proper protective equipment when riding a motorcycle ● Cook meats and other foods thoroughly. Also, put cooked meat on a clean platter, rather than back on the one that held the raw meat, to avoid cross-contamination. ● Whether you’re cooking out in the backyard or on a picnic, always keep cold foods cold and hot foods hot. When you’re finished eating, refrigerate leftovers promptly.

USAR PRO CUP SERIES • Saturday, May 28th

— FROM PAGE 11 sense of being in the story because the viewer can imagine himself or one of his friends saying those same words.” Judging by the reaction of the audience during the screening on Tuesday, all that attention to detail paid off in a big way. “It’s a great video with a lot of good information,” commented Sgt. 1st Class Shan Willis, a platoon sergeant from the 508th Transportation Company. “There’s no doubt that the interactive part of it will be way more effective than a mundane, boring safety talk. I think it’s going to have a big impact on off-duty accident prevention.” Spc. Marcus Singleton, a human resource specialist from Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 23rd Quartermaster Brigade offered a similar review. “What an eye-opener,” he said. “It really makes you think when you watch this and realize how easy it is to create a situation where an accident is likely to occur. It’s very powerful. “Another element I found interesting is the ability to choose the wrong decisions and see what happens,” he added. “All of us know the right decisions, but we never really consider the opposite side of it until it’s too late. This is an opportunity to see that part of it and realize how serious it is. I think they did a great job with it.” In addition to Soldiers, this new safety training tool is appropriate for other services, government civilians and family members, Betoney noted. The new training program can be accessed online at www.tradoc.army.mil/ offdutyonguard or https:// safety.army.mil (click on the “Off Duty, On Guard” image at the bottom of the page).

CEMETERIES Reservations are suggested for the tour. Richmondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shockoe Hill is home to two important cemeteries â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Shockoe Hill Cemetery and the Hebrew Cemetery, which includes what is believed to be the largest burial ground for Jewish soldiers outside Tel Aviv, Israel. Shockoe Hill Cemetery (2nd and Hospital streets, Richmond), established in 1822, was Richmondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first city-owned burial ground. It stands on one of the hills on which the oldest portion of the capitol city was built. Chief Justice John Marshall, Virginia Gov. William H. Cabell and Revolutionary War hero Peter Francisco (George Washington had a special sword forged for the exceedingly tall and powerful warrior) are among the noted people buried there with both Confederate and Union war dead. Also standing at Shockoe are some 19th century trees including Virginia elm, pin oaks, Kentucky coffee, lilac, silver maple, eastern red cedar, locust and yew. Diverse stone and metal funerary art by master artists of the 19th century grace the grounds. The Hebrew Cemetery (4th and Hospital streets, Richmond, (804) 358-6757) dates from 1816 and succeeded the 1789 Franklin Street Burial Grounds. In response to antiSemitism, a special section of the cemetery was set aside for 30 Jewish Confederate soldiers killed in the battles of Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville and the Wilderness when two Confederate cemeteries refused to bury them. Those soldiers were from Mississippi,

Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Louisiana. The fallen soldiers were taken to Richmond where they were buried in five rows of six bodies each within the larger Hebrew Cemetery. Maj. William B. Meyer, commissioned in 1866 by the Hebrew Ladies Memorial Association, designed an iron fence to enclose the graves. The fence posts are furled Confederate flags flanked by stacked muskets and topped with a Soldierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cap. The railings are crossed swords and sabers with laurel wreaths. A large granite stone with a bronze plaque naming the 30 Jewish soldiers was installed in 1930 because the original markers were deteriorating. Six Jewish soldiers from Richmond families are buried in family plots in the larger cemetery, including Isaac Levy who was killed in the trenches near Petersburg. Josephine Cohen Joel, well known in the early 20th century as the founder of Richmond Art Co., is also buried in the Hebrew Cemetery.

Research Shows Tobacco Doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Reduce Stress Falls Church â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Most tobacco users believe their habit reduces stress and helps them manage unpleasant moods. Many service men and women report that stress is a major reason they smoke or chew tobacco, since military life produces unique pressures and challenges. However, a recent article published on the U.S. Department of Defense tobacco cessation website, www.ucanquit2.org, explains how tobacco actually increases stress and why stress levels go down after people kick the nicotine habit. According to the article, tobacco users feel normal after using nicotine, but stress levels rise in between smoke or chew breaks. Thus, the tobacco user is kept constantly bouncing back and forth between feeling normal immediately after using and feeling increasingly stressed as the hours since their last intake of nicotine go by. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nicotine gives the impression of reducing stress because, for those addicted to nicotine, the experience of not having nicotine in their body is extremely stressful,â&#x20AC;? said Cmdr. Aileen Buckler, M.D., M.P.H., U.S. Public Health Service officer and chairman of the DoD Alcohol and Tobacco Advisory Committee.

Many tobacco users may fear quitting because they imagine that the discomfort of nicotine deprivation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the accompanying anxiety and irritability â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will go on indefinitely. But studies show that the tide quickly turns. Although stress levels rise in the initial days of the quit process, after 14 days of abstinence the former user is no more stressed than he would be if he were smoking. From there, it only gets better. Six months out, the former tobacco user can expect to experience significantly less stress than he did as a tobacco user. To help active duty military, veterans, retirees and their families achieve a less stressful, tobacco-free life, DoD offers stress management techniques and a variety of helpful tools at www.ucanquit2.org. When tobacco users are feeling stressed as they withdraw from nicotine or just need to find support for quitting tobacco, they can access live help, a free, confidential online chat service from trained tobacco cessation coaches, available 24/7 in real time. They can also locate support with the interactive tool for finding local tobacco cessation programs.

Frequently Asked Questions Does using tobacco help people with problems like anxiety, depression, ADHD/ ADD, or post-traumatic stress disorder feel better? It can seem like nicotine is helping, but people who use tobacco to feel better are self-medicating and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a good solution. Nicotine temporarily changes the chemistry in the brain and can lessen some of these symptoms, but it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last long and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no cure. There are ways to help you if you are feeling overly stressed, anxious, depressed, or have ADD or ADHD. Talk to your doctor about ways to relieve stress or depression and medications that can help.

Will quitting smoking help me feel better if I feel overly anxious or depressed, or have post-traumatic stress disorder? Yes! Smoking can actually make you feel more anxious or depressed when you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t smoke, and it can make you more stressed than you would feel if you werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t addicted to nicotine. Quitting means that you have more control over your emotions, that they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t controlled by the nicotine. Read Unlocking the Mysteries of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Tobacco Use for more information about PSTD and smoking. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ucanquit2.org

He traveled three hours to attend the event, but the distance did not stop him from enjoying the “reunion with the guys.” (ABOVE) Jeff East, left, receives help and instructions from Chuck Willis, president of Paralyzed Veterans of America - Mid-Atlantic Chapter, and Reed Weir, organizer of the PVA Trap and Skeet shoot, on how to use the shooting aid that is designed to hold the gun and gives the shooter the ability to swing and chase the skeet.

U.S. Army Builds on ‘Army Strong’ Campaign with New Advertising WASHINGTON –The U.S. Army will introduce its latest extension of “Army Strong” through a new advertising campaign called “Symbol of Strength.” The firsts television advertisements are scheduled to air on Memorial Day. The campaign consists of three new national broadcast television spots and will integrate a strong cinema activation, public relations, social media and an interactive web presence. “Our new ‘Symbol of Strength’ campaign highlights the ultimate benefit of becoming a Soldier – the unique and incomparable strength inherent in every one of us serving,” said Lt. Gen. Benjamin C. Freakley, commanding general of U.S. Army Accessions Command. “When you put on the Army uniform, you learn how to strengthen your own life, whether it’s through a strong education, participating in new opportunities that are only accessible to those serving in the Army, or leading missions that will make a difference to you or to others.” “This new advertising campaign provides a way for the Army to speak directly to our target audience,” said Bruce Jasurda, chief marketing officer for U.S. Army Accessions Command. “We are taking steps to connect Dance Master’s Fine Arts Program Seasons of Dance New Session Begins June 4, 2011 Ballet, Tap and Jazz classes for ages 3 yrs to Adult • Wedding • Party Space • Gift Certificates

three spots, go to www.youtube.com/goarmyvideos. Another unique aspect of the overall campaign is a fiveweek cinema activation, from May 20 to June 23, leading up to the summer premiere of X-Men: First Class. This integrated video is showing in National CineMedia’s First Look pre-feature program in more than 700 movie theaters across the country. It depicts how Soldiers and characters from the movie X-Men start out as ordinary people who then move on to do extraordinary things. At the end of the segment, viewers are directed to www. facebook.com/goarmy where they can learn about becoming Army Strong and see exclusive X-Men movie content before its release. The television spots will drive viewers to www.goarmy. com where they can connect with Soldiers and create personal connections with those already serving. McCann Worldgroup, the Army’s marketing agency of record, produced the fully integrated advertising campaign.
