In the first sustained American offensive of World War I, an Allied force including a full brigade of nearly 4,000 U.S. Service members, captured the village of Cantigny, France, from German possession on May 28, 1918. A day after their French allies suffered a blistering defeat on the Aisne River, a two-hour artillery barrage preceded the attack on Cantigny, located north on the Western Front. The French army provided air cover, artillery, heavy tanks and teams of flamethrowers to aid the U.S. forces advance through the German-held vil-

The Community Commons will host an Armed Services Blood Program blood drive from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., May 28. The drive is open to all Service members, dependents, retirees and civilian employees. Donors must be at least 17-years-old and more than 110 pounds and not donated within the last 57 days. Donors are advised to get adequate rest, be properly hydrated, limit their sugar and caffeine intake and eat ironrich foods the night prior. Those partaking in physical activity are also encouraged to wait two hours before donating. While the ASBP encourages everyone to donate, volunteers should be informed of some special requirements. Volunteers can donate one year after departure from Iraq or Afghanistan. Donors who received tattoos in Virginia and North Carolina must wait one week before giving blood. People who have received flu shots and flu mist do not have a deferral time, but must feel well before volunteering. For individuals who lived in the United Kingdom for three months or longer or six months or longer in mainland Europe, between Jan. 1, 1980 and Dec. 31 1999, the waiting period remains indefinite due to the deferral of Variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease or mad cow disease. The deferral affects Turkey and Saudi Arabia as well as anyone with five years cumulative residency in Eu-

rope from Jan. 1, 1980 to present. Though the ASBP is in need of all blood types, they especially need O negative and AB. The ASBP supports all active-duty personnel by shipping blood downrange and locally by providing blood stores to U.S. Air Force Hospital Langley. According to Ralph Peters, ASBP drive coordinator, each donation can potentially save two to three lives. Thirty to 50 donations are usually needed for trauma victims or combat casualties. “Every volunteer and donor matters.

Together, you are literally saving lives,” Peters said. “We know that it is a commitment of your time. Thank you for your support.” The Community Commons is located at 74 Burrell Loop Rd., on Langley. Walk-ins are welcome, but donors may also make an appointment. To make an appointment, visit www.militarydonor.com, print the confirmation page and bring it to the blood drive. For more information about ASBP, donor requirements, registration and more, visit www.militaryblood.dod.mil.

U.S. troops score first WWI victory lage, which was quickly overrun. The American force took 100 German prisoners by the end of the day. The commander in chief of the American Expeditionary Force, Gen. John J. Pershing, gave the order that no inch of Cantigny was to be surrendered. Over the next 72 hours the Americans in Cantigny endured seven German counterattacks, maintaining control of the village despite high casualties. By the time relief came, total U.S. casualties at Cantigny reached more than 1,000, and troops were exhausted

from the strain of continual shelling. As the first major U.S. victory, the capture of Cantigny had a threefold impact on the war effort in the spring of 1918. First, the victory deprived the Germans of an important observation point on theWestern Front. It also lent weight to Pershing’s argument that an independent U.S. command should be maintained apart from the joint Allied command. Finally, it provided a warning to the Germans that the Americans, although recently arrived and relatively new to the battlefield, were not a force to be taken lightly.

492nd ‘Sea Masters’ deploy to Kuwait

Soldiers assigned to the 492nd Transportation Detachment (Harbormaster), 10th Transportation Battalion, 7th Transportation Brigade (Expeditionary), stand in formation during a deployment ceremony at Fort Eustis, May 16. The unit is deploying in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

By Sgt. Stefanie Warner 7TH TRANSPORTATION BRIGADE (EXPEDITIONARY)

Approximately 20 Soldiers from the 492nd Transportation Detachment (Harbormaster), 10th Transportation Battalion, 7th Transportation Brigade (Expeditionary) departed for a deployment after a ceremony at the Army Training Support Center at Fort Eustis, May 16. The “Sea Masters” deployed to Kuwait in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. They will perform duties for the Department of Defense as well as Coalition forces. “Once again, the nation calls on the 492nd to deploy in support of OEF, but that call goes out to more than just the Soldiers,” said U.S. Army Maj. Matt Panepinto, 10th Transportation Battalion, 7th Transportation Brigade (Expeditionary) executive officer. “Emotions are running high as both a sense of pride and sadness fill our hearts. There is pride knowing that our loved ones are answering the call of duty and service to the nation – a call they have freely chosen.” During the deployment they will be responsible for port management, watercraft safety and planning, as well as coordinating and supervising watercraft missions throughout the central command’s area of responsibility. “Thank you for your support, without it, none of this would be possible,” said Panepinto to a group of family members. “The strength of our Army lies in our Soldiers and the strength of our Soldiers lies within our family.”

The event featured Galbraith as the guest speaker, informational booths, Exchange and commissary specials and bingo.

Booths and tables full of information lined the main corridor at the Exchange as retirees, active-duty troops, volunteers and families gathered for the Retiree Appreciation Day event at Fort Eustis, Virginia, May 17. The annual event, hosted by the Fort Eustis Retiree Council, featured activities throughout the day including Exchange and commissary specials, mini case-lot sales and Family, Morale, Welfare and Recreation discounts. “Our retiree community members are very important to us so we want to honor and thank them for their service,” said Carla Platteborze, Re-

Galbraith thanked retirees for their past military service and their continued service through volunteerism. “The bottom line is that volunteering is a hidden force multiplier which really helps us accomplish the mission,” said Galbraith. “Our retirees are a piece of living history, the foundation from which our military has evolved.” This year the Retiree Appreciation Day event had support from more than 20 vendors who offered a variety of information, including Disabled American Veterans, the American Red Cross, the USO, the Veterans Administration and financial and medical support agencies.

Hurricane response exercise ensures plan runs smoothly By Melissa Walther 633RD AIR BASE WING PUBLIC AFFAIRS

A category 2 hurricane struck Joint Base Langley-Eustis Tuesday afternoon, bringing winds from 96 to 110 mph and storm surge of 6 to 8 feet, causing moderate damage. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;hurricaneâ&#x20AC;? was part of a table topexercise held at Langley Air Force Base designed to familiarize emergency responders with disaster response plans already in place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We already have a plan in place, but what this exercise does is ensures people know that plan is there and how it would apply in a real-world situation,â&#x20AC;? said Neale Cummings, the organizer for the exercise. Cummings, the 633rd Air Base Wing executive planner said the three main things he wanted to emphasize were the importance of accountability, reporting and shared resources.

The exercise involved representatives from Langley Air Force Base, Fort Eustis and local emergency responders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The emergency operations centers at Langley Air Force Base and Fort Eustis operate at the same time, but independently in this situation because the concerns of Langley are not likely to be the concerns of Eustis,â&#x20AC;? Cummings said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Langley usually faces ďŹ&#x201A;ooding, while Eustis has to deal more with wind. There may be some ďŹ&#x201A;ooding, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not their primary concern.â&#x20AC;? The exercise involved a series of questions based on how many hours the hurricane was from landfall, which prompted participants to outline what their responsibilities and actions would be when presented with different scenarios. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a great experience and I learned more about how to help the base as a whole,â&#x20AC;? said Airman 1st Class Wesley Mi-

After the emergency response coordinators came up with answers to their scenario, senior leadership was presented with those answers, ensuring everyone was on the same page. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just want to make sure everyone knows what everyone else is doing and that there are no questions or things we need to work out before the real thing,â&#x20AC;? Cummings said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The scenario we presented was one that could actually happen, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important everyone knows that plan is in place and how to use it.â&#x20AC;?

U.S. Air Force Col. Kevin Huyck, 1st Fighter Wing commander, waves to the crowd during the opening ceremony of the Norfolk Tides’ 19th Annual Armed Forces Night at Harbor Park Stadium in Norfolk, May 17. The event included a presentation of the colors by the U.S. Joint Service Color Guard and first pitches by Service members from each branch of the Armed Forces.

Knights at Harbor Park in Norfolk, Virginia. The Tides paid tribute to U.S. Armed Forces personnel by taking the field sporting blue camouflage uniforms and various service-specific baseball hats. The joint service color guard from Fort Eustis, Virginia presented the colors during the national anthem, played by the U.S. Fleet Forces Band from Norfolk. A moment of silence was also observed prior to the start of the game in honor of fallen U.S. military members, as well as those currently deployed across the world. A group of men and women in the Delayed Entry Program took the oath of enlistment with U.S. Navy Rear Adm. Dixon Smith, Navy Region MidAtlantic commander, administering the oath. Six “superior performers” from each branch of the military were on-hand to throw out the ceremonial first pitch of the game. U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. Tyler Allan, 1st Maintenance Squadron low observable section chief, and 1st Fighter Wing noncommissioned officer of the year, represented the Air Force. “I am truly honored to have been selected

Tyler Allan 1st Maintenance Squadron low observable section chief to represent the Air Force at the Norfolk Tides Armed Forces Night,” said Allen. “To stand beside the other services not only to throw out the first pitch, but to be recognized by our local community, was something I will never forget.” U.S. Army Sgt. Seongbok Park, 7th Sustainment Brigade, 11th Transportation Battalion cargo specialist, who represented the Army, echoed Allan’s thoughts. “It was an honor to represent the U.S. Army at the game,” said Park. “This has given me a great memory to take with me as I move to South Korea.” Fans were also able to view displays from the different services throughout the stadium. After the Tides defeated the Charlotte Knights 7-6 in 13 innings, fans were treated to a fireworks display giving one last salute to the men and women of the armed forces.

Firefighter students from the Hampton Roads Marine Firefighting School prepare to extinguish a fire during a maritime incident response exercise at Fort Eustis, May 16. Approximately 115 firefighters from more than 10 local, national and international agencies participated in the exercise.

Approximately 115 firefighters from more than 10 local, national and international agencies took part in the 23rd Annual Hampton Roads Marine Firefighting School maritime incident response exercise at Fort Eustis, May 16. The exercise was the culmination of handson and practical training students learned during the five-day school, which started May 12. Prior to the incident exercise, students gained classroom knowledge at the Norfolk Fire Training Center and practiced live burns and de-watering techniques at various local training areas and on different vessels. Students attended the school from various regional agencies including the Langley Air Force Base Fire Department, the Virginia Beach Fire Department, the Newport News Fire Department, Hampton Fire Rescue and Norfolk Fire Rescue. In addition, fire departments from New York, Philadelphia, Delaware, California and New Hampshire participated as well as international firefighters from Hong Kong, Singapore and the Netherlands. The maritime incident exercise began at Third Port at Fort Eustis, where students boarded Fort Eustis’ vessels and the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Frank Drew to be taken to the U.S. Department of Transportation Maritime Administration (MARAD) National Defense Reserve Fleet on the James River. Once students reached the Reserve Fleet, the objective of the exercise was to evaluate how they responded to and extinguished a simulat-

“[The exercise] allows [students’] hands--on and classroom training components to come together so they are able to demonstrrate what platforms, logistics and equipment are needed [in a shipboard fire].

ed shipboard fire, said Bill Burket, Port of Virginia Hampton Roads Maritime Incident Response Team director, who coordinated the exercise. “[The exercise] allows [students’] hands-on and classroom training components to come together so they are able to demonstrate what platforms, logistics and equipment are needed [in a shipboard fire],” said Burket. “A marine event requires multiple agencies, so this gives everyone an idea of what to do, and they can take it back to share with their own agencies.” Jim O’Brien, a firefighter with the New York City Fire Department, said he gained significant insights from not only the exercise, but the Hampton Roads Marine Firefighting School as a whole. “It shows us what to expect in a ship fire and gives us different tools and training we normally may not be aware of,” said O’Brien. “It’s also good for [firefighters] to know what the staff on a ship [that is experiencing a fire] may need, and [this exercise] teaches us how to respond.” In teaching firefighters how to respond to marine incidents, the exercise and school curriculum allows students to provide specialized support to MARAD, local and regional agencies and surrounding communities, said Burket. “We need to be able to show the community if [a vessel] encounters a problem and needs assistance, we’re trained to respond and take care of the situation,” said Burket. “We have a strong relationship with our port partners, and we were very fortunate this year to be able to train so many students so their agencies now have increased capabilities.”

The students at the Hampton Roads Marine Firefighter School participated in simulated ship fires at the National Defense Reserve Fleet to test the knowledge they gained during the five-day course.

Approximately half of the 113 fire efighters attending the class took the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Frank Drew to the National Defense Reserve Fleet where multiple simulatted ship fires took place.

A Sexual Harassment/Assault Response and Prevention certification course was held at Fort Eustis, May 5-16, as part of the U.S. Army’s qualification requirements for sexual assault response coordinators and victim advocates. The SHARP 80-hour certification course was the first class taught by graduates of the 16-week SHARP schoolhouse pilot program. The Army launched the program at Fort Belvoir in January as a means to better equip trainers, coordinators and victim advocates from across the Army. While SHARP certification courses were previously taught by contractors, the pilot program now allows Soldiers to become instructors, said Sgt. 1st Class Mark Ashby, Training and Doctrine Command SHARP trainer and recent graduate of the pilot program, assigned to the 128th Aviation Brigade. “This is the first time we’ve had the op-

portunity as a military entity to have direct impact [on the course] through teaching and practical knowledge,” said Ashby. “It’s a hands-on environment, and we give [students] relevant and up to date information.” Ashby and Sgt. 1st Class Manuel Martinez, TRADOC SHARP trainer and also a recent graduate of the pilot program, were the instructors for the course at Fort Eustis, which hosted 32 military and civilian students from across the Army. “We will also begin traveling to different units to teach the course as a more cost-effective means for training,” said Martinez. “This is a more advance training, and we give them the tools here so they can gain the experience in the field.” As part of the curriculum, students were briefed by installation and community services, which Ashby said gives added benefit to the students and the SHARP program as a whole. “We receive a lot of support – it’s a total community effort,” he said. “In the end it’s about caring, which is just another im-

The Fort Eustis Drug Demand Reduction OfďŹ ce hosted the Save-a-Life Tour, or S.A.L.T. on May 19, 21 and 22. The S.A.L.T is a driving safety program geared toward high schools, colleges and military installations and includes video presentations, a speaker and driving simulators. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Our goal is to] impact them from a different perspective,â&#x20AC;? said Andrew Tipton, S.A.L.T manager. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to kill them with [slide presentations], so we engage them with graphic videos and simulations.â&#x20AC;? Educational tools at the event included drunk driving and texting and driving chairs. In the drunk driving simulator, the computer slows all of the reactions down, just like a person would react if under the inďŹ&#x201A;uence. In the texting and driving chair a Soldier holds a phone that receives text messages and is required to drive and respond to the phone. During the program, Soldiers learned drinking and driving facts as well as statistics associated with text messaging and driving. Statistics show that texting and driving is more dangerous than drinking and driving, said Tipton. It takes

approximately 4.66 seconds to check a text message and in that time, if traveling at 55 mph, a vehicle will travel the distance of a football ďŹ eld, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a huge distance to not look at the road,â&#x20AC;? said Tipton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You do not know what could happen in front of you or behind you.â&#x20AC;? According to Walter Gaines, DDRO prevention coordinator, the presentation assists Soldiers in annual training requirements. According to Army Regulation 600-85, Soldiers are required to take four hours of substance abuse training each year, which S.A.L.T. satisďŹ es, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We brought in S.A.L.T. in hopes to get our Soldiers to make good decisions,â&#x20AC;? said Gaines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I could stand up there and give a presentation, but I feel the Soldiers will be more im-

pacted from the tour.â&#x20AC;? The impacts of impaired driving carry more than physical risks, said Tipton. A single driving-under-the-inďŹ&#x201A;uence charge could cost a person up to $10,000, ruin a career or a family and it can also ruin a future, he said. While talking to the crowd, Tipton asked if anyone there currently had an extra $10,000 sitting around for a â&#x20AC;&#x153;just-in-case DUI;â&#x20AC;? everyone shook their heads or answered no. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone knows [drinking and driving or texting and driving] are dangerous,â&#x20AC;? said Tipton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone knows it can hurt a person; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not new news. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why we want you to think twice about your decisions.â&#x20AC;? For more information, contact the Drug Demand Reduction OfďŹ ce at 878-2924.

Sirens blare as a team of paramedics rush to a man who’s lying on the ground. They take his vitals and begin administering CPR as others nearby watch. The life-savers continue their work, only paying attention to the man in their care. McDonald Army Health Center paramedics respond to all 911 calls at Fort Eustis, Virginia, regardless of the individual’s military status. On average, the team answers 67 calls each month, including transfers to and from the medical facilities in the surrounding community. “We don’t have an emergency room at Fort Eustis, so it’s important to get to the patient as quickly as possible and take them to a nearby facility,” said Dawn Smith, Health Center paramedic intermediate. “Depending on how critical the injury is, we take most patients to Mary Immaculate Hospital or Riverside Regional Medical Center because they are the closest.” The team of paramedics’ experience ranges from 17 to 50 years, but they know they can’t do it all alone. They encourage Fort Eustis community members to take first aid and CPR classes because they can help sustain life until the paramedics arrive. “Even when everything is done correctly, you’ve only got a short window to save a life,” said Raphael Ramos, Health Center ambulance section supervisor. “Preforming CPR will keep blood flowing to the heart, brain and throughout the body, sustaining life until an AED, or other advanced medical care is available.” While a call for a heart attack may not be an everyday occurrence, the McDonald Army Health Center paramedic team remains ready to answer any call.

The event gave attendees an opportunity to look at the processes and planning required to run an aerial demonstration and to learn more about the capabilities of Langleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s F-22â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and the Airmen who support them. In addition, the event teased the demonstration teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s involvement in the Virginia Beach Oceanfront Air Show from May 30 to June 1. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These events give us an exhilarating, front-row seat to what we will see at air shows and we can share that with the public,â&#x20AC;? said Dominic Brown, WTKR NewsChannel 3 meteorologist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being able to speak to the pilots and team behind these events gives our audience an insider look, which pumps them up for the air show.â&#x20AC;? The demo team shared information about the F-22â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capabilities and how the aerial show demonstrates only a fraction of the power behind the aircraft. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The F-22 is the only ďŹ fth-generation aircraft on the planet. No other aircraft matches its superiority inside of contested or denied air space,â&#x20AC;? said U.S. Air Force Col. Kevin Huyck, 1st FW commander. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our opponents can deploy multiple aircraft, advanced surface-to-air missile platforms or any form of detection equipment and this airframe will still put any target at risk.â&#x20AC;?

personic cruise capability, stealth capability and advanced maneuverability set it apart from all other airframes, and give it the edge in combat, said Huyck. Thrust vectoring allows the pilot to change the direction of the jetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thrust, granting the ability to perform maneuvers unattainable by older generations. In addition to a streamlined body and advanced computers, this vectoring ability lends to the F-22â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advanced maneuverability, which allows a pilot to literally ďŹ&#x201A;y circles around other airframes, said Huyck. While it is still visible to the naked eye, the aircraftâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to accelerate to more than twice the speed of sound makes it nearly impossible to track by sight. The F-22â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s internal weapons bay, overall design and

special paint protect it from other tracking equipment, such as radar, which makes it stealth capable. After disbanding last year due to ďŹ scal constraints, the F-22 Demo Team was reinstated for a 20-show season this year, and has performed six shows to date. Master Sgt. John Kraemer, F-22 Demo Team noncommissioned ofďŹ cer in charge, explained what it takes to make a demonstration a reality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our team is comprised of 11 people, but only eight Airmen actually go on the road: a pilot, an observer, two crew chiefs, two avionics technicians and the assistant NCOIC,â&#x20AC;? explained Kraemer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a team, we can evaluate the F-22â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s condition, make appropriate changes to instrumentation and adjust our plan for each venue.â&#x20AC;?

TRIBUTE FROM PAGE 4 wall to which we add the names of 47 Transportation Corps fallen warriors who were also mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, brothers, and sisters. Today, we celebrate their lives, honor their service, and remember the sacriďŹ ce each of them made on behalf of a grateful nation. I know this chapel is ďŹ lled today with some who served alongside those who we honor in this ceremony. Your presence here is a testament to the fact their memory lives on, and their legacy of service will not be forgotten.â&#x20AC;? Before unveiling the plaque inscribed with the names of the 47 Soldiers, Sullivan expressed a continued commitment to the families of the fallen who were recognized at the ceremony. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the families, both those honoring us with their presence today, as well as those who were not able to be with us, please know you will always remain a part of our Army family,â&#x20AC;? said Sullivan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I pledge to you we will never forget your loved onesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; service to our nation or the sacriďŹ ce they made on behalf of all our citizens who enjoy the freedoms our nation bestows.â&#x20AC;? The rededication concluded with a cere-

monial bell ringing as each of the 47 names added to the plaque were read aloud. Families, Soldiers and friends were able to render a ďŹ nal salute, paying tribute to the fallen Transportation Corps Soldiers. The names of the Transportation Corps Soldiersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; memorialized during the ceremony included Staff Sgt. Justin R. Johnson, Staff Sgt. Eric T. Lawson and Sgt. Caryn E. Nouv, who were assigned to the 359th Inland Cargo Transfer Company, 10th Transportation Battalion, 7th Transportation Brigade (Expeditionary) at Fort Eustis, and killed in action during tours in Afghanistan in 2013. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These names represent the best of our nation, and they call on those of us serving today to live up to the example each of these heroes provided during their lives and the sacriďŹ ce they made for our nation,â&#x20AC;? said Sullivan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By inscribing and preserving their names on this wall, we ensure these heroes are remembered, not just by our generation, but by many, many generations to follow. All of the 1,972 names on the Memorial Wall tell the story of courage, selďŹ&#x201A;ess service, and commitment to our corps, our Army, and to our nation.â&#x20AC;?
