SPARTANS JUMP INTO THE MIDST OF

TALISMAN SABER Spartan Brigade participates in Australia exercise Public affairs staff report With reporting by U.S. Army Alaska and Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Toni Burton CORAL SEA — More than 27,000 U.S. and Australian personnel converged in Australia and the Coral Sea in preparation for the exercise Talisman Saber 2013, hosted off the coast of Australia July 15 through Aug. 6. Talisman Saber is a U.S. Pacific Command-sponsored exercise that trains forces in a mid-intensity, high-end warfighting scenario involving a combined joint task force. Designed to improve U.S./Australian combat training, readiness and interoperability, approximately 18,000 U.S. and 9,000 Australian personnel will participate in the exercise. More than 400 paratroopers from the 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), 25th Infantry Division, parachuted into Australia July 18 for the exercise. Paratroopers boarded cargo aircraft for a 20-hour flight before jumping in near Rockhampton, Australia to train with Australian forces. Talisman Saber 13 is designed to train U.S. and Australian forces to plan and conduct combined operations. The exercise is built to improve combat readiness and interoperability. The operation is reflects the close military alliance between the two nations. “Australia is a long-standing ally,” said Vice Adm. Scott Swift, commander, U.S. 7th Fleet. “Talisman Saber is the largest and most important bilateral exercise we conduct together, flexing our combined capabilities to ensure we can operate seamlessly together to promote security and stability in the region.” Swift is the overall combined joint task force commander of Talisman Saber. His deputy CJTF commander is Brigadier David Coghlan, commander of Australia’s 6th Brigade. The goal of Talisman Saber is to train and validate the U.S. and Australian joint task force in crisis planning and contingency operations. Other key goals are to improve U.S./Australian combat readiness and interoperability through combined training and demonstrate the U.S. and Australia’s ability and commitment to support the security interests of Australia and those of the broader Indo-Asia-Pacific region. “Talisman Saber provides an opportunity for personnel from both countries and each branch of their militaries to train together and enhance their combined and joint warfighting skills. The exercise increases interoper-

ability, flexibility and readiness, all of which are force multipliers in maintaining security and stability in the region,” said Swift. This is the fifth Talisman Saber exercise. Talisman Saber (called Talisman Sabre when led by Australia) merges the previous exercises Tandem Thrust and Crocodile into one biennial, joint, combined exercise with U.S. and Australian forces. Swift stated the bond between the U.S. and Australia is stronger than ever and remains one of the most important alliances in the world. “The U.S./Australian alliance is an anchor of peace and stability in the Indo-AsiaPacific region,” Swift said. “Our visits and exercises reaffirm that we are aligned in our

views, and that a strong relationship between our militaries and countries is essential for maintaining maritime security and keeping the seas safe for commerce. This exercise reflects the closeness of the Australian and U.S. alliance and the strength of our militaryto-military relationships.” Training will be conducted from multiple locations in the United States to include Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, San Diego, Joint Base Lewis-McChord and Suffolk, Va.; multiple locations in Australia to include Rockhampton, Enogerra, Amberley, Williamtown, Richmond, the maritime areas of the Coral Sea and Australian ranges to include Shoalwater Bay Training Area and Townsville Field Training Area.

U.S. Army Alaska news release A U.S. Army Alaska Soldier died on post early Saturday morning from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Spc.

A team comprised of F-22 Raptor crews from the 525th Fighter Squadron, intelligence personnel from the 517th Airlift Squadron, command and control (C2) personnel from the 962nd Airborne Air Control Squadron, and a C-17 Globemaster III crew from the 3rd Operations Support Squadron took first place in the annual Turkey Shoot competition at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson July 15 to 17. The Turkey Shoot competition provided an opportunity for four teams from multiple units within active duty 3rd Wing and the Reserve 477th Fighter Group to face off during an offensive counter air mission scenario. “The opportunity for our 477th Fighter Group team to work as team with other 3rd Wing airframes and crews is very valuable for us,” said Air Force Col. Tyler Otten, 477th Fighter Group commander. “It provides a level of complexity and coordination that we don’t have to work through on typical daily training sorties. It is great training.” The biggest change to this year’s competition was the addition of increment 3.1 upgrade to Alaska’s Raptors, adding air-toground targeting to what used to predominately be an air-to-air scenario. F-22 pilot Air Force Capt. Brett Vongroven, 525th Fighter Squadron, said the competition “fostered a competitive spirit between different squadrons” and it enabled “improvement in the name of friendly competition.” Also stress tested in this competition were the maintainers, who were graded on a number of categories, including the ability

Farewell and thank you Garrett reflects on his time in command

Editorial by Army Maj. Gen. Michael Garrett U.S. Army Alaska Commanding General For commissioned officers, command is precious and brief. Most of an officer’s career is spent on staff, and while this time is important, it can’t compare to time spent in command. Of my 29 years of active service, I have been privileged to lead Soldiers as a commander or platoon leader for about 13 years. That may sound like a lot, but it doesn’t feel like nearly enough to me. My last command was right here in Anchorage in 2005 as the first commander of the newly-designated Spartan Brigade. That was an amazing experience. I still hold a special place in my heart for the paratroopers I had the honor of training and leading through a hard fight in Iraq. Saying goodbye to the Spartans during a ceremony on Pershing Field in 2008 was bittersweet. Now, after only 14 months serving as the commanding general of U.S. Army Alaska, I will once again leave Alaska after passing our unit colors to another.

A good commander knows he can’t do it all on his own. While I can’t possibly acknowledge everyone individually, I would like to thank a few groups collectively. First off are my subordinate commanders and leaders all the way down to the platoon level. I know I have demanded a lot of you over the past year. Thank you for your hard work and dedication. If it weren’t for you each taking my priorities as your own, the programs I initiated never would have benefited our Soldiers. Second are the noncommissioned officers. Sergeants, you truly are the backbone of the Army. I relied on you heavily to bear the burden of enforcing my back-to-basics philosophy and four-pillar policy. I know some of my programs weren’t popular with your Soldiers. I am grateful you did your duty as leaders in supporting our collective vision. Third are the Soldiers, my Arctic Warriors. You have done some absolutely amazing things this year. Many of you returned to JBER from fighting in Afghanistan this past year and others have deployed to combat or humanitarian missions. You have built relationships with our international partners across the Pacific through mentoring and training. Thank you for your patriotism and for stepping up to defend this nation during

a time of war. Every day I see your unlimited potential and marvel at your courage and devotion. I also owe gratitude to my staff at USARAK, the families who support our Soldiers, our sister services on the Last Frontier and the civic leaders and communities of Alaska. Thank you for your love for this command and the Soldiers who serve in it. Leading the Arctic Warriors has been the pinnacle of my career thus far. I am tremendously proud of this organization and all we have accomplished together. I told you what my expectations were when I took command last year, and I am proud to see so much progress over the last year. Since physical training was my No. 1 priority, I am especially proud of how successful the PT streamer incentive program has been. This program contributed to increased unit PT averages across USARAK. I also take pride in the fact that the reporting of sexual harassment and assault has jumped significantly during my tenure. Let me be clear, I absolutely detest these crimes being committed by or against anyone, especially our Soldiers. But we have put a lot of time, effort and resources towards educating our formations about these crimes, and now victims are coming forward about attacks

that were committed, sometimes years before. I believe this indicates our campaign against sexual assault and harassment is working and victims have more confidence in their commanders and the Uniform Code of Military Justice process. This is an important step in the right direction towards solving this problem. I am confident that the Arctic Warriors will remain vigilant and continue to reduce these crimes within the ranks. The last accomplishment I want to highlight is the general increase in good order and discipline – in the barracks and across our formations. I know that some may not recognize this or see the significance of it, but at my level, it is invaluable. Readiness is my business, and when Soldiers live the Army Values, look out for their battle buddies and treat others respectfully, they can accomplish anything together. I have sincerely enjoyed my tours in Alaska and am honored to have served as your commander. Thank you for everything you do for our profession and the service you provide to America. The Army is a huge organization, but it is also a small world. If we ever cross paths again, please come and say hi. So for the second time in five years, Lorelei and I bid farewell to Alaska and the entire Arctic Warrior Family. We will miss you, and we pray God will bless you in the many ways he has blessed us. Arctic Warrior! Arctic Tough!

The Air Force, Airmen and the importance of volunteering Commentary by Chief Master Sgt. Jon Jefferson 673d Communications Squadron Why do our military services ask us to volunteer? While some reasons are obvious, others might not be so apparent. In fact, those reasons may be just as important, if not more so. The most basic reason is we’re members of both a military and a civilian community and, just like any citizen, we need to contribute to each of those communities. We need to be active and participate in our community, even if we’re only going to be stationed there for a short period of time. Participation includes working and contributing economically, helping to ensure safety and security, and also serving through volunteering. We citizens can make a very big and positive impact on our community through volunteering. And for military members volunteering in the local civilian community, it helps strengthen the relationship between the two communities. A relationship of mutual support is critical to the well-being and strength of both communities. But community service is just the first reason we should volunteer. Helping others is often the focus of volunteering and justifiably so. But have you asked yourself, “How does volunteering benefit me?” It’s not an intuitive question, because it appears to be a selfish one which seemingly contradicts the selfless act of volunteering. But wouldn’t the best types of volunteering benefit both others and you? The most obvious personal benefit is the satisfaction you get from helping others and contributing to your community. It’s very similar to the sense of accomplishment and feelings we get from serving in the military. It’s just a different type of service. A second benefit to us as individuals comes from networking. Building networks can benefit you both in your personal life and professionally as you learn who

you can turn to when you have a question, need assistance in getting something accomplished, need a service or product provided, etc. Especially in our professional lives, most important things we need accomplished have to be done not by individuals, but by teams. So the more people you connect with, the more you can reach out to in the future and the more people you can bring together into a team either in person or virtually to fulfill a requirement, complete a project, etc. While customer service, personal satisfaction and networking are all reasons to volunteer, the reason most members forget about or don’t consider at all is volunteering can improve personal and professional development. When you volunteer, you need to do it in a way that grows you as a person and as a professional. This growth can occur by volunteering in areas where you have little or no experience. So, as you’re exposed to new things, you expand your capabilities. You learn more about your civilian or your base community. Additionally, as you go up in rank, the scope of your mission expands. So you need both the networking and the leadership abilities to be able to manage that expanding role and its scope. Development can also occur by filling different roles (like taking on leadership). There is a huge difference between leading in your work center and primary duties where the superior-subordinate relationship exists versus leading a group of fellow volunteers where everyone is there for the same reason or similar reasons���you’re giving of yourselves, you aren’t forced to be there, and it’s totally voluntary. There’s a difference when you’re leading equals, peers, and you’re authority is based solely on being elected or you volunteered to be in charge. Different environments take different and flexible leadership skills. By delving into these different environments, you build your abilities, your repertoire,

Pratt

your interpersonal relationship abilities and your leadership abilities. In this manner, you increase flexibility and develop different skills to handle different types of situations. That’s the true benefit to the military, because you’ll be more flexible and be able to handle a wider range of challenges. Your broadened awareness and understanding enables you to manage and execute the mission more effectively. Now what volunteering goes into a performance report? The performance report should capture the individual as accurately as possible. If you have an individual who is completely mission-focused and doesn’t expand beyond that, then the report should reflect. If the individual has achieved and expanded him/herself in a lot of different areas, then that should reflect as well. Mission does come first and therefore should be emphasized in the report. As such, volunteer bullets shouldn’t be forced into a performance report, but they should be included if they help draw a clear picture of the individual without sacrificing significant missionrelated bullets. I think we’ve become a bit misguided in that many people believe we always have to include volunteer bullets in a performance report. Instead we should be striving to capture the individual’s most significant accomplishments and impact. This should be done within the context of ensuring the individual comes across on paper whether the Airman is a wellrounded, multifaceted individual, whether Airman is a great technician but has room to improve as a supervisor/leader, whether the rated individual is great in his or her primary duties, but doesn’t make an impact beyond the immediate work center, etc. Some of our supervisors are missing the mark when it comes to encouraging their subordinates to volunteer. Are they only requiring them to do it to make an impact at the community service level of par-

ticipation or are they ensuring the subordinate is performing in roles appropriate to rank and level of experience and the Airman is taking advantage of opportunities to grow as a person, to build personal and professional networks, and to develop interpersonal relationship and leadership skills? Is one volunteer opportunity more important than another? For personal volunteering, the answer is “No.” The military doesn’t consider one organization better or more important than another. Otherwise, that would be viewed as an endorsement. But professional volunteering does provide additional value over personal volunteering. That’s only because through your volunteering, you’re making a direct impact to the military service, to the base, your fellow military members, and to your professional career versus an indirect one. So from that serving the community aspect, yes there is added benefit to volunteering for an on-base professional organization (such as Top 3, Rising VI, Air Force Sergeants Association, booster club, functional organization, etc.) or getting involved in a professional event (e.g. ceremony, ball, dining-in/ dining-out, etc.) Beyond those differences, it’s still up to you to decide which one. That can be difficult when most of us are already task-saturated and have difficulty finding time for all of life’s priorities. There are circumstances which make volunteering hard to do (long duty hours, deployments, family commitments, etc.). But they shouldn’t be used as excuses not to volunteer at all. They should be the reason why you deliberately choose which organizations or activities to get involved with. Since you can’t do everything, you have to be choosy in frequency, level, and scope of commitment. While it’s good to find an organization or opportunity that interests you, don’t forget about the benefits to you as well. In this sense, the biggest decision

is what role you should play. That goes back to how you should be choosing one that grows you and develops you. As a junior enlisted member, just about any type of volunteering is applicable, since you’re learning and developing. Junior enlisted members would understandably choose those that are more about executing projects and processes and being an involved member. An exception to this is where you’re in a peer group. In this instance it could be appropriate to take a leadership position. As you become an noncommissioned officer or senior NCO, you would then have experience being the “doer” and therefore should then expand into taking a leadership role. You might start at a smaller scale and lead an individual project, subcommittee or event. Once you’ve learned skills at that level, you would then choose a more long-term leadership role and be in charge of a committee, be an organization’s officer, etc. There’s nothing wrong with being a member or continuing to support the same organization, event or project time after time. But once you’ve been there and done that, you should only continue to do it for the community service benefits of volunteering, as the development benefits are minimized. Remember, the development is what makes that often missing impact to you and ultimately provides the furthest reaching benefit to the military. If you’re a military member who never volunteers or only does just enough to “check the box,” you may still be an outstanding contributor to the mission. But you’re not leveraging an opportunity, albeit one not always thought of, to develop personally and professionally. In this manner, you’re limiting your abilities and your overall potential. Use volunteering to grow beyond being just a good technician or leader in the work center. Become an excellent, all-around service member, human being, and full member of your on-base and civilian communities.

When asked what was exciting about participating in the Turkey Shoot, Senior Airman Eric Smith, 90th Aircraft Maintenance Unit, said “I like the rivalry” between the squadrons and then added “and getting a sense of why we are out here beyond launching sorties every day.” A key reason why this type of competition is so effective was it allowed the operators and maintainers to work in a realistic threat environment while including many of the weapons systems based at JBER. Air Force Lt. Col. Chad Spellman, 3rd OSS director of operations said the “scenario was intentionally designed to be extremely challenging” and that making it a competition “puts added pressure on the members of each team to succeed.” “As a fighter pilot, you typically don’t get to conduct missions with C-17s,” Spellman added, since most fighter bases are not co-located with cargo planes. In total, there were four teams competing representing the 3rd OSS, 90th Fighter Squadron, 525th Fighter Squadron and the Reserve 477th Fighter Group. The term “Turkey Shoot” dates back to the World War II era, based on one of the most massive air battles, the “Great Marianas Turkey Shoot” or officially, the Battle of the Philippine Sea, took place. The engagement was the largest aircraft carrier battle in history, involving nearly 1,800 aircraft. Due to the ease of defending against a multitude of Japanese attacks, American pilots started referring to the battle as the “turkey shoot.” The battle decimated what remained of the Imperial Navy’s cadre of trained pilots, and effectively eliminated Japanese carrier aviation for the duration of the war.

COMMUNITY ARCTIC WARRIOR

ABOVE: Michelle Shablesky, spouse of Army 2nd Lt. Mitchell Shablesky, watches closely as two airborne jumpmasters inspect her harness before her jump off the Airborne Sustainment Training Area 34-foot tower during the 2nd Battalion, 377th Parachute Field Artillery Regiment’s G.I. Jane Day. The event showed spouses what a day in the life of their Soldier is like, and to support family and unit bonding. TOP RIGHT: A spouse shuts her eyes before jumping from the Airborne Sustainment Training Area 34-foot tower. (U.S. Air Force photos/Airman 1st Class Austin Willhoit)

2-377th PFAR spouses try hands at Soldier skills By Airman 1st Class Austin Willhoit JBER Public Affairs As screams of excitement and fear filled the air, spouses of 2nd Battalion, 377th Parachute Field Artillery Regiment Soldiers got a first-hand experience of what their spouses do on a daily basis during the unit’s “G.I. Jane Day” July 17 at Joint Base ElmendorfRichardson. The events began with a climb up the Airborne Sustainment Training Area’s 34-foot tower used to simulate jumping out of an aircraft. The spouses were equipped with a harness, a quick motivational speech and a few “good lucks” from their Soldiers. While the paratroopers excitedly watched their spouses jump, several of them were yelling “Airborne!” and “All the way!” to show their support. “The responses were wide-ranging,” said Army Lt. Col. Christopher Ward, the 2-337 PFAR commander. “Some of the wives were very excited and some were in tears,

but everyone made it out, everyone was very happy and a lot of them asked to do it again.” The next event was the M240B machine gun range where the spouses were lined up, familiarized with the weapon and shown how to fire from the prone position. Although the Soldiers are trained to fire the nearly 28-pound weapon, many spouses said it was tougher than they expected. “The firing range was hard,” said Heather Ward, wife of the commander. “Those guns have a lot of power and I did not hit the target once. That’s kind of embarrassing to say, but I left my target clean for the next person.” The day culminated in a trip to the obstacle course where the wives were tasked with navigating a tri-level balance beam, climbing a rope and more. “Thank you to all the Soldiers who organized this event,” Heather Ward said. “As a family member, I really enjoyed it and I hope we can do it again.”

There’s more to service than benefits and job security Reasons to serve all come down to simple commitment Commentary by Chief Master Sgt. James Powell Air Force News Service If you were asked by a co-worker, civilian or family member, “Why do you serve?” what would your answer be? How would you internalize what you do for the Air Force to the point you could answer that simple question? Over the past several years, I’ve heard the full array of reasons from the events of 9/11 to family traditions. It wasn’t until the sequestration events of this past spring, specifically the suspension of tuition assistance, I thought harder about why we serve. Let me start by saying I am not against tuition assistance or any other benefit the Air Force has given us. I personally have benefited from the use of TA and believe

our Air Force reaps rewards from members who have taken the initiative to further their education. I bring up this subject because the news about terminating TA seemed to have provoked an enormous response and I wanted to try and put some things into perspective. As Air Force members, we sometimes have a tendency to take things for granted. We have no problem when the first and the 15th of the month come around and our paycheck is waiting for us in the bank. We have grown to expect it. When we take a look at our leave and earnings statement, we see benefits like housing allowance or subsistence allowance and maybe even special-incentive pay unique to our career field. Most of those benefits remain largely intact during this fiscal crisis. Many of us have gone to the clinic and received treatment and medications that would’ve been very costly in the civilian sector on our own dime. I didn’t see much effect on these benefits either. While not every temporary duty or permanent change of station assignment was perfectly timed or to the perfect location, we found some type of benefit, whether it was the opportunity to travel or the allow-

ances we received from being relocated for a period of time. With TDYs, this area definitely saw some adjustments and heartburn but nowhere on the level I saw with the discontinuation of TA. This revocation happened in the wake of post 9/11 education benefits, various scholarships offered through professional organizations and Pell grants. Also, local colleges were working with members to make special arrangements to ease the financial burden. I truly don’t think members serve simply for the education benefits, despite the fact many made comments to the contrary. I can’t tell you how many indicated they were planning to separate just because this one benefit was on the verge of disappearing – but I did not see one individual who made such a threat start the separation process. There are different attitudes toward serving, such as education benefits or sense of family, patriotism or job security. I use the word “attitudes” because they are subject to change. We have all taken a position or attitude toward something one minute and in the next, been swayed to change. Hence, I didn’t see one person who said they joined the Air Force merely for the education benefits try to separate when TA

was not available. This led me to believe in actuality we all serve for the same purpose, which can be summarized by one word: commitment. We all took an oath of service upon enlistment and during reenlistment. Did that oath say anything about serving for the promise of getting medical or educational benefits? Does it even say anything about pay and allowances or patriotism? The obvious answer is no. Our oath uses words such as “support and defend” and “obey,” all of which require commitment. Commitment requires a deep inner conviction and an obligation that is not limited to any one individual. Our commitment encompasses our Air Force, our families and our nation. When we can acknowledge the reason we serve is because of our commitment, we set aside our individual attitudes towards a particular benefit or belief and take up a cause much bigger than any one of us combined. As we have seen, as fiscal environments change, so too can benefits. So let us keep our perspective of our commitment to “serve and defend” and sustain our military as the most commanding power on the face of the earth.

Participants said they appreciate it for the outdoor fun and challenge it brings them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come to Alaska to sit at home,â&#x20AC;? Bill Kane, a 59-year-old military retiree who works in Kenai Fjords National Park in Seward.. Lawson has been the coordinator for the Eco Challenge every year for the past seven years at Hillberg Ski Area, located behind the flight line on JBER. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People who have done this event year after year really enjoy the event,â&#x20AC;? Neely said. Lawson said the amount of participants who sign up for this event has increased every year by a few individuals just by word of mouth and advertisement. He said teams have been getting bigger with three to 12 teams consisting of two to four people each. All individuals participating in the event had to be over the age of 18. Before the race started, participants in the Eco Challenge

were given numbers. These numbers keep track of who the individuals are and if anyone has gone missing. The challenge started with a four-and-a-halfmile run in the woods leading to the nine-mile bike ride, which had individuals go through twists and turns on dusty dirt roads and circle around for the next challenge. Kayaks were awaiting them after the bike ride. Individuals had the choice to bring a kayak for the challenge or use one provided by the FSS. Every year, at least one participant has fallen into the water while kayaking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was the first year participants refused to fall into the water while kayaking,â&#x20AC;? Lawson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was really suprised.â&#x20AC;? After the kayak challenge, the individuals put on weighted back packs and hiked up rocky hills and trails through the woods. Both men and women were required to weigh down their back packs, women with 25 pounds and men with 35 pounds. Personnel volunteering for the event rode on all-terrain vehicles to watch for anyone straying off the trails or lend some help if there was any wildlife that could endanger them. Participants said the course wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t easy, including the first-place winner Louis Guillermo, of the 673d Medical Group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was cramping up,â&#x20AC;? Guillermo said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The hike was the hardest.â&#x20AC;? Despite the challenging events, many individuals were sore and happy they participated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every year at the same spot, I tell myself I am never doing this again,â&#x20AC;? Kane said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I find myself at the starting line.â&#x20AC;?

CENTER RIGHT: Louis Guillermo, 673d Medical Group, (Bib 81) and Philip Johnson, 525th Fighter Squadron (Bib 60), run a four-and-half-mile course through the woods. The Eco Challenge was a four-part event that included running, bike riding, hiking and kayaking. The event was designed to get individuals outside and active. RIGHT: Military members participate in the kayak challenge July 19. This was the first year no individuals fell into the water during the kayaking challenge. ABOVE: Military members pick up their weighted back backs for the final challenge: a hike with a 35-pound pack for men and 25 pounds for women.
