TIDEWATER TRANSITIONS TO DEFENSE HEALTH AGENCY By Senior Airman Tristan Biese

633RD AIR BASE WING PUBLIC AFFAIRS JOINT BASE LANGLEY-EUSTIS, VA.

U.S. Navy Vice Adm. Raquel Bono, Defense Health Agency director, visited Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia, May 29, 2019, to discuss changes for the military hospitals and clinics across the country. As part of the Military Health System’s transformation starting Oct. 1, 2019, the Defense Health Agency is assuming control of all Tidewater-area military hospitals and clinics including Naval Medical Center Portsmouth, McDonald Army Health Center and the U.S. Air Force Langley Hospital at JBLE. “We’ve been running our health care systems as separate health care systems and while that’s been effective, what we’re recognizing is that it’s not something that we can sustain.” said Bono. “Because we were operating independently of each other, we tended to make decisions that added to the cost of care or the duplication of equipment in our services. So [with this transformation] we are really trying to optimize the level of care we have with our existing resources.” During a town hall here, Bono spoke to patients and personnel from the Langley Hospital about how this transition will present opportunities for greater leadership and

U.S. Navy Vice Adm. Raquel Bono, Defense Health Agency director, speaks to patients and personnel from the Langley Hospital at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia, May 29, 2019, about changes for the military hospitals and clinics across the country. As part of the Military Health System’s transformation starting Oct. 1, 2019, the Defense Health Agency is assuming control of all Tidewater-area military hospitals and clinics including Naval Medical Center Portsmouth, McDonald Army Health Center and the U.S. Air Force Langley Hospital at JBLE.

“We aren’t necessarily trying to fix anything but what we are trying to do is to make our healthcare system the very best healthcare system.” U.S. Navy Vice Adm. Raquel Bono, Defense Health Agency director standardization of processes for medical departments across the services. “We aren’t necessarily trying to fix anything but what we are trying to do is to make our healthcare system the very best healthcare system,” said Bono. “We want to make sure that any decision that we make here about Langley still manages to support what our patients need.” Not only is the transition meant to standardize processes across medical

facilities, but also to promote collaboration across the services. “When Army, Air Force and Navy medicine deploy together we noticed when we were on the battlefield is that we worked extremely well together,” said Bono. “When we work together across Army, Air Force and Navy, we’re sharing all of the lessons and elevating our performance collectively. So what we’d like to do is to bring what we learned on the battle-

field back home to our military treatment facilities here in Tidewater and across the United States.” According to Bono, this transformation should have little or no effect on patients and their experience of care. However, over time the transformation will provide better integration and standardization of care. “Not only do we want to make sure that our patients are taken care of and that they receive a high level of care,” said Bono. “We also want to make sure that our operational forces know that we are going to be right there with them to make sure that they are as ready as possible for when our nation needs them.”

JBLE JA provides guidance on marijuana stocks, CBD oil Aliza Reisberg, Public Affairs Specialist

633RD AIR BASE WING PUBLIC AFFAIRS JOINT BASE LANGLEY-EUSTIS, VA.

With the recent trend of products containing cannabidiol, or CBD oil, as well as the growth of marijuana businesses, the 633rd Air Base Wing Staff Judge Advocate has provided guidance to help U.S. service members navigate their questions. Although some states have legalized aspects of the industry, the manufacture, distribution, possession and use of marijuana remains illegal under both federal and military law. Owning stock in these companies helps promote these activities; therefore, service members are strongly advised not to buy it.

The ownership of marijuana stocks can also affect one’s ability to gain or retain a security clearance. Another prominent issue concerns the purchase and use of CBD oil, which the 633rd ABW JA advises military personnel not to engage in. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, CBD oil is a Schedule I, Marijuana Extract. Because CBD Oil is not regulated, it is a possibility that personnel who use it may test positive for tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. The 2018 Farm Bill generally legalized hemp products with minor amounts of THC in them; however, use of such products is prohibited by Air Force Instruction 90-507, Military Drug Demand Reduction Program:

Studies have shown that products made with hemp seed and hemp seed oil may contain varying levels of THC, an active ingredient of marijuana, which is detectable under the Air Force Drug Testing Program. In order to ensure military readiness, the ingestion of products containing or products derived from hemp seed or hemp seed oil is prohibited. Failure to comply with the mandatory provisions of this paragraph by military personnel is a violation of Article 92, UCMJ. Violations may result in administrative disciplinary action without regard to otherwise applicable criminal or civil sanctions for violations of related laws. While both these issues continue to be reviewed at higher Department of Defense levels, military personnel are advised by the JA not to purchase marijuana stocks or use products with CBD oil. For questions regarding these issues, contact the Langley Air Force Base Legal Office, Military Justice Section at 764-3280, or Fort Eustis Legal Assistance at 878-3031, ext 222.

The 128th Aviation Brigade works out to remember fallen soldiers By Senior Airman Delaney Gonzales

633RD AIR BASE WING PUBLIC AFFAIRS JOINT BASE LANGLEY-EUSTIS, VA.

The 128th Aviation Brigade hosted a Remembrance Workout of the Day event at the 128th AVB Rehab Facility May 22. The event was designed to honor the service and sacrifice of fallen Army Aviation Soldiers through a series of high-intensity workouts. “Our goal is to participate in an hour hour-long workout. As we hurt and sweat, it reminds us of the hurt that is continuing from the family members who lost a loved one,” said Capt. Brandon Johnson, 128th AVB, 1222 Aviation Regiment chaplain. The workout was structured with five different stations. Each station had a unique workout that the Soldier had to perform. Groups of Soldiers rotated between the five stations. Participants received instruction on how to properly perform the exercise; then, a chaplain or a religious affairs specialist read the memorial biography of the soldier being remembered at that station. “We understand the exercise, we understand why we are doing the exercise and then we commit to doing the workout as an act of honor and remembrance to that soldier,” added Johnson. Some of the workouts performed during the event included kettle bell swings, box jumps, burpees and hand release push-ups. The exercises symbolized the importance of a national holiday, Memorial Day. “It benefits our organization and the whole Fort Eustis community by focusing on the true meaning of Memorial Day,” Johnson concluded.

SURVIVING MORE THAN WAR

Graphic made to promote the Mental Health Clinic on Joint Base LangleyEustis, Virginia. The graphic features the Mental Health Clinic phone number along with their address and hours of operation.

By Airman 1st Class Marcus M. Bullock 633RD AIR BASE WING PUBLIC AFFAIRS JOINT BASE LANGLEY-EUSTIS, VA.

“The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places,” —Ernest Hemingway. Many service members can relate all too well to this quote, but unfortunately, sometimes they don’t realize just how strong they are. Going into war and then trying to adjust afterwards can be a strain on even the strongest willed individuals. Last year, 321 active-duty military members took their own lives while countless others battle their ever-changing mental health on a daily basis. “I knew I had problems but I didn’t think it was that bad because it was my fourth deployment at the time,” said U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Ryan Gulley, 633d Security Forces Squadron flight chief. “I had never had any problems in the past but being in mental health and talking to them with everything that I went through, it can happen. It just builds up over time and everyone experiences trauma in a different way.” The Mental Health Clinic offers services which allow military members to go in and be able to talk to someone about anything they might be going through. Gulley attrib-

utes being able to go to someone who is just there to listen, as a tool that has helped him greatly. “For me with mental health, it truly was a godsend because it’s nice to go and talk to someone that is genuinely listening and caring,” said Gulley. “They’re not passing judgment on you, they’re there to listen to your story and based on their experience and training to find whatever tool in their toolbox works best for you.” Aside from the oneon-one help offered by mental health, other programs offer service members group settings where they are able to interact with service members who might be going through similar experiences. “Another thing that really helped me out was a program called the Back On Track program for all branches of services to get together and talk about combatrelated stresses or PTSD and everything that we went through,” said Gulley. “After being there for a few days, we didn’t see each other as other branches of service because we were all there for the same issues and all had the same experiences. We were all there just to get help.” Mental health is not something that has to

and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.” Ernest Hemingway

define you, rather it should be the catalyst for making you a stronger person. “Don’t let it define you because sometimes it does consume you, and you don’t think there’s any hope,” said Gulley. “You have to seek those services that are available to you because I am living proof, it saved my life.” It may be hard to talk about the subject of your own mental health, but it’s surely something that cannot be ignored. The things that service members have been through might not be easy to talk about, but it’s a topic that shouldn’t be locked away. Don’t be afraid to go to mental health or ask anyone for help because losing even one service member to mental health is too many. For more information, contact the Mental Health Clinic at (757) 764-6840 and learn about all the services they provide.

EMT recertification ensures JBLE has responders

11 A member of the 633d Medical Group evaluates participants in the emergency medical technician course during a hands-on portion of their EMT recertification training on Joint Base LangleyEustis, Virginia, May 17, 2019. Members who were trying to get recertified had to go through a weeklong program which incorporated both classroom lecture, hands-on training and a written test.

By Airman 1st Class Marcus M. Bullock 633 AIR BASE WING PUBLIC AFFAIRS JOINT BASE LANGLEY-EUSTIS, VA.

With the potential to be the first responder to an accident, members of the 633d Medical Group, who have their emergency medical technician training, have a crucial role to play in preserving life. That is why members of the Education Center push such a rigorous recertification course to train their EMTs. The week-long training course consists of different hands-on skills practice and class-based learning. They will also do a mass casualty exercise, a 50-question written test, and then a skills evaluation in which they have to perform a trauma scenario and a medical scenario. When asked why the course is so rigorous, U.S. Air Force Tech. Sgt. Samantha Taylor, 633d MDG EMT site coordinator for Langley Air Force Base, explained that the course has to be extensive because most of the time, those who have to fill the role of an EMT on Langley AFB do not work specifically as an EMT – they have a different medical job. “What we need to do to recertify them is to make sure they’re getting all of the information that we need them to have,” said Taylor. “That’s why we make the course so rigorous and hands-on and repetitive, because we want to make sure we are certifying that these medics, who aren’t prac-

ticing as EMTs, are competent and can be trained to work as an EMT if they’re pulled to [do so].” In order to make sure that members getting their EMT recertification receive the most realistic training, the education and training center uses medical simulators that have the capability to mimic human functions. “We can program the simulator to replicate a live person,” said Raymond Jernigan, 633d MDG Air Force Medical Modeling and Simulations Training simulations operator. “It gives them a different environment to practice and learn in that’s not as stressful, but it gives them the ‘practice as we play’ mentality.” Along with the medical simulators, the education center uses human volunteers to help simulate a real-world victim. With human volunteers, members training to receive their recertification can interact more with these volunteers than with medical simulators. “We’ve learned that when the EMTs go and do their hands-on portion, they’re more likely to interact if they have somebody physically there, as opposed to a mannequin,” added Taylor. “If they have a real person there, they can really ask the questions and get all of the information they need to know from the physical person that’s there and we think they end up scoring better.” The importance of EMT recertification cannot be stressed enough when those trained as EMTs might be the first to deliver medical attention to

someone who may need it. It is vital for medical professionals to feel confident in their skills in order to administer emergency medical care. “We want to provide safe and trusted patient care here,” concluded Taylor. “It’s important to make sure that everybody knows exactly what they need to do in these scenarios and situations so we can make sure we are providing high quality patient care to every patient.”

Gen McConville confirmed as next chief of staff, 'people' to be his top priority By Army News Release

DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE FORT MEADE, MD.

The No. 1 priority for the next Army chief of staff will be people, whom Gen. James C. McConville says are the Army’s greatest strength. “Winning requires unit cohesion, a cohesion built on a foundation of trained, disciplined, and fit Soldiers who treat each other with dignity and respect,” McConville said, May 2, at his confirmation hearing. On May 23, senators agreed and confirmed McConville to be the Army’s top officer, a position he said will allow him to ensure the service remains the most lethal and decisive land force in the world. “I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as the next chief of staff of the Army,” he said after the announcement. “I look forward to the honor of having another opportunity to lead the Soldiers, civilians and Families serving our nation’s Army.” A senior aviator who has qualified on several helicopters, McConville was the vice chief of staff under Gen. Mark A. Milley, who has been nominated for chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Prior to his assignments to the Pentagon as the Army’s G-1 (personnel) and chief of legislative liaison,

“The Army expects a lot from their Soldiers and Families and really to maximize the readiness of our Soldiers, they must know that the Army is caring for their Families.” Gen. James C. McConville

McConville was the longest serving commander of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault). “General McConville is an extremely accomplished Army officer and I’m supremely confident in his abilities as the next Chief of Staff,” said Secretary of the Army Mark T. Esper. “He has played an instrumental role in almost every major decision the Army has made since becoming the Vice Chief of Staff and is the perfect leader to carry on our mission of preparing the Army for the future.” In his hearing before the

On May 23, senators agreed and confirmed Gen. James C. McConville to be the Chief of Staff of the Army, a position he said will allow him to ensure the service remains the most lethal and decisive land force in the world.

Senate Armed Services Committee, the general said he is committed to eradicating sexual assault and harassment among the ranks, reducing suicides, and making sure Families have quality housing, healthcare and childcare. “The Army expects a lot from their Soldiers and Families and really to maximize the readiness of our Soldiers, they must know that the Army is caring for their Families,” he said. With 37 years of service, McConville also stressed the Army faces a critical point as it shifts from irregular warfare to great power competition. “We will win by aggressively pursuing our priorities of readiness, modernization, and reform,” he told lawmakers. Among the Army’s six

modernization priorities, McConville highlighted long-range precision fires as a key to gaining overmatch against near-peer competitors. An extended-range cannon that can shoot rounds at least 70 kilometers is being developed, he said, as well as a precision strike missile and a strategic longrange cannon and hypersonic missiles. “Future chiefs will no longer have to say that they are outgunned or outranged as we go into the future,” he said. Modernization efforts, he added, will not only be about new equipment, but also implementing the multi-domain operations concept and a new talentmanagement system. He said being part of a joint force, the Army can

also effectively deter Russia and China, the two largest threats mentioned in the National Defense Strategy. “The way we do that is working with our partners and allies,” he said, “and also having forces present or an ability to react to any type of malicious behavior.” At the start of the hearing, McConville recognized his wife, Maria, a former Army officer herself, whom he said is responsible for all of his success. “She is the foundation and strength of our Family,” he said. “She often says to me, ‘don’t thank us for our sacrifice, thank us for our commitment.’ And I want to thank all of the spouses for their commitment in serving.” The couple has three children -- all now serving as officers in the Army.
