By Senior Master Sgt. Mike Hammond JBER Public Affairs A November hunting trip in the extreme North turned into a lifesaving opportunity in the blink of an eye for two master sergeants from Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson. It was a cold night, even by Alaska standards: 7-below temperatures with a 35-below wind chill factor. Air Force master sergeants
David Barber and Morgan Cabaniss, 673d Security Forces Squadron, were on the tail end of a long drive up the Dalton Highway – known locally as “Haul Road,” to join four friends in a caribou hunt. By 11 p.m., Nov. 2, the sergeants were about a hundred miles north of the Arctic Circle and a couple of hours from their rendezvous point when Cabaniss noticed something wrong. “We were going over Atigun Pass when
we came up on a trucker. He was going really slowly, and I could see his tail lights reflecting off the road behind him,” Cabaniss said. “I had just told Dave [Barber] that the road must be really slick, when the truck started to jackknife. We could see his tail lights and his headlights both pointing back at us!” Barber explained what happened next.

By Jim Hart JBER Public Affairs The class The stories seemed to be from horror films rather than war movies. Guts falling off stretchers, maimed bodies and ghastly images of remains frozen in their last moments of life; many screaming in agony, now silent. He recounted all their names. The brief was part of the 725th Brigade Support Battalion (Airborne)’s resiliency training. The stories were recollections from Army Lt. Col. Andrew DeKever’s tour in Afghanistan several years ago with the 10th Mountain Division (Light Infantry). They were not fun “there I was” stories to share down at the Veterans of Foreign Wars hall; not even good ones to share with the family. Sadly, as he would find out, stories not terribly fun for anyone to listen to. DeKever told the class of how isolated he felt, even ostracized. At that time, he was a mortuary affairs officer. He didn’t fall under the dark spell of combat stress in the traditionally understood way, so several in his command dismissed his plight. He explained how he and his staff saw the gruesome results over and over again, month after month, searing horrible memories into their very being. “This has to end,” DeKever concluded. “Even if it ends badly,

it has to end.” As the brief continued, he explained his experiences, and a parallel story of a Soldier, Spc. Jacob Andrews, who did not survive his post-traumatic stress disorder. In DeKever’s words, Jake looked a little too far over the edge. In both cases, the stories illustrated shortfalls in each person’s command and social situation; each of the stories were drawing a road map for those in the class to know how serious even little things can be. The turning point for DeKever was a specialist in his section who recognized the signs and told a behavioral health practitioner. It’s something DeKever admits was very gutsy, but also something that saved his life. The discussion was very frank, even by military standards. DeKever’s story, and scores like his, are what the Army’s Ready and Resilient Campaign is meant to address. To incorporate resiliency training into the very fabric of the training matrix, rather than insert-
ing it haphazardly between ranges and during crisis periods; to synchronize the various agencies and programs into a tool commanders can more readily use. “It’s been effective for me and my family,” said Sgt. 1st Class John Ripple, master resiliency trainer with the 725th BSB. “Over the last couple years I’ve been faced with a lot of challenges – from my wife and son’s health to all kinds of different stuff in the Army. I try to apply some of this Comprehensive Soldier Fitness to my own situations, and it’s helped me.” The command Several weeks earlier, in the planning phase for 1st Squadron (Airborne), 40th Cavalry’s iteration of the Ready and Resilient Campaign, squadron commander Army Lt. Col. Richard Scott was looking at a monthly brief in which he and his staff pored over the Risk Working Group List. From this report, he saw trends and numbers, but he also saw

“I will be sure always,” is the motto of the U.S. Army parachute rigger. Every rigger is Airborne qualified and by tradition required to be ready to jump any parachute, packed by any rigger. Parachute rigging in the Army has been around since the first Airborne unit was established in 1940. In those days paratroopers prepared and cared for their own parachutes. At the onset of World War II the Army created five airborne divisions and created support organizations with a mission to maintain airborne delivery systems. By 1950, Army riggers joined the Quartermaster Corps. The U.S. Army Quartermaster School has operated the parachute rigger course at Fort Lee, Va. since 1951. Like thousands before, Army 1st Lt. Kelsie Cabrera began her career as a rigger on the historic grounds of Fort Lee. “When I was at Fort Lee, I went through my basic officer course and I was assigned to the
names and the troubles vexing them – he saw souls attached to the statistics. He also saw a list of any program or assistance the individual troops have received or been referred to. The list includes everything from alcohol-related problems to suicide. Anything the command is aware of which is, even potentially, related to resiliency is there. He’s able to track trends all the way down to the platoon level in a unit of 575 Soldiers. It is from these stats and reports he was able to target specific areas he would like to remedy. While the list of individual effects would be long, his has a longer-term goal than just the one week of R2C – for him, it’s a matter of unit effectiveness, and one that will take much more time. While his squadron may be well-trained in their combat roles, many of his Soldiers are suffering from resilience-related issues. The way Scott sees it, the statistics show one-third of his unit is combat ineffective – something no
commander wants. “Our focus is to reduce this number and get more Soldiers to perform optimally and therefore increase unit readiness,” Scott said. “We are leveraging all our available resources on JBER to help us meet this goal. We are teaching and showing our Soldiers and leaders the tools and resources available to them. “One of the things that’s interesting is we spend 12 months to prepare for combat,” Scott said. ”But if you look at it conversely, we spend just a fraction of that time preparing our Soldiers and families to come back from combat. That is causing a lot of issues.” Scott also said his battalion has been leaning forward on resiliency over the last year or so, incorporating much of what R2C is advocating into their normal training and policy. It’s this kind of high-fidelity awareness that makes it advantageous for battalion and company commanders to select tailor-made training plans for their specific unit challenges. And that’s what U.S. Army Alaska did – but it didn’t happen in a vacuum. This kind of training program requires tremendous resources, and without coordination and planning it can become impracticable. The support and planning In mid-summer, USARAK started planning how to best train their Soldiers during R2C week. During phase one of R2C, they conducted an outreach to senior leaders to get an idea of what leadership was seeing. They also surveyed 2,000 leaders and 2,700 Soldiers about alcohol and indiscipline. The planning then continued with a “ready and resilient” team who then put together a concept of operations – essentially a course catalog. From this list of ready-made training modules, the commanders could then assemble a training

Four guides to success
fails to deliver. Instead of keeping your expertise to yourself so you’re the only “go-to” guy or gal, share your strengths with others to widely spread your knowledge and abilities. We can all benefit from sharing with one another the tools and things that work for us. While I’ve come up with a few methods on my own, I’ve borrowed/stolen many more from the mentors, leaders and peers I’ve been fortunate enough to meet throughout my career. Because of this, my Airmen benefit not only from my strengths and abilities, but also from those of others as well. Look for areas in processes, programs, and individuals that can be improved. Be a mentor to your subordinates, a wingman to your peers, an advisor to your leaders, and all of the above to your family. Be honest with yourself and look within to identify areas needing improvement and then take action. Also, keep in mind that teamwork isn’t a one-way street. Ask others for their view. It’s always good to get an outside opinion. Be willing to learn from others to bolster your own weaknesses. Ultimately, the more sharing that occurs, the more successful the “team” can be.

Commentary by Chief Master Sgt. Jon Jefferson 673d Communications Squadron Just like life, a military career is a journey. As we travel down the road of our career and life, we first need to have one or more destinations in mind. These destinations are the milestones and goals we set for ourselves. Without something to shoot for, progress is haphazard, slower than it should be, or nonexistent. That can lead to missing out on opportunities, dissatisfaction, or in the worst case an end to our career for not meeting expectations. During my career, my ability to regularly and consistently follow four principles or guides has allowed me to navigate through the challenges to reach many of my professional and life goals. The four principles are have the right attitude, be better each day, focus on the team, and find a balance Have the right attitude We need to approach each day with desire and effort, and in a positive manner. Treat your career as more than a job; embrace it as a culture. That means follow-
ing our military’s customs and courtesies, perpetuating its traditions, studying its history, and changing it when needed so it doesn’t stagnate. Honor those who came before you, share with those around you, and leave a stronger legacy for those who will continue on after you. The right attitude will see you through the hard times, magnify the good experiences, and enrich your life as a whole. Attitude is contagious. The wrong attitude is like a weight around your neck or a dark cloud that stretches out over those around you. It may not lead to failure, but at a minimum, it requires additional effort and time by you and others to overcome it. On the other hand, the right attitude will attract subordinates, peers, friends, and people who care about you to your side. With their help, you can join your abilities together to achieve and enjoy more, rely on each other when times are tough for either of you, and share in the joy of your or their success.
I’m not talking about taking a huge leap of knowledge or understanding but smaller, more subtle steps. It may be learning a topic you didn’t know before. It may be not repeating a mistake you made yesterday. It may be taking a step outside your comfort zone in order to broaden your experience. But we need to make small improvements regularly. It’s the only way to reach our potential in our current duty position, professional responsibilities, or life. It’s the only way to ready ourselves for more responsibility whether it comes with the next rank, with becoming a parent, or assuming a new role. And it’s the only effective way to prepare ourselves to be able to manage the unexpected. The long journey to success begins with a single step. And each step you take should be a purposeful one of gaining knowledge and experience. Focus on the team In our military careers, and I’d argue in our lives in general, true success comes not from individual achievement, but from what we accomplish together. It doesn’t mean much if you succeed, but your co-workers, section, organization, or family struggles or
Be better each day We each have the opportunity to learn something new every day. The key is to take advantage of this opportunity.
Find a balance This can be the most challenging of the principles due to the diversity and volume of demands on us. You need to find and maintain a balance in the different facets of your life. Make sure you devote enough time each to your career, your family, your community, and the one too many often forget about, to yourself. When looking within, develop yourself physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. You need to deposit enough in each internal and external “account” so you’re able to make withdrawals when needed. Do it frequently enough so none of the accounts reach a zero balance. If you’re able to make these life deposits, you’ll minimize the negative impact that can occur when one particular demand dominates your attention and energy to the exclusion of the others. Any facet in your professional and personal lives to which you don’t properly attend will degrade one or more of the others and ultimately hurt your quality of life and those around you. I encourage you to adjust your attitude, approach, focus and balance as needed. And I hope you willingly share with others what’s helped you to reach your own career and life goals so they can benefit from your experiences. We not only owe it to ourselves; we owe it to our families and our fellow Airmen, Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Coast Guardsmen and civilians of all ranks. It can be the difference between success and failure in our personal and professional lives.
Celebrate safely, responsibly this Thanksgiving weekend Commentary by Army Maj. Gen. Michael H. Shields U.S. Army Alaska Commanding General Thanksgiving is traditionally a time of celebration and gratitude. In that spirit, I would like to express to the Arctic Warrior family how grateful I am for your service and for the opportunity to lead you. The traditions behind Thanksgiving go back four centuries, but the holiday was officially established 150 years ago during the Civil War. President Lincoln issued a presidential proclamation in 1863 setting the date for Thanksgiving
in the hopes of fostering a sense of national unity between the northern and southern states. Then, as now, our Army family must celebrate this holiday during a time of extended conflict. It is fitting that November is Military Family Appreciation Month. Without our strong families, our military would not be capable of all they do. To all of our family members, Christy and I thank you for your service. You make a difference every day, and we are strengthened by your support, your resilience, and your selfless contributions to your community.
During the rush of the holiday season, I ask that each of you take a moment to reflect on the freedoms we enjoy as Americans and those who sacrificed to provide us with our liberty. I also ask that we remember the families of our fallen Soldiers and those who are still deployed around the world. Holiday weekends can rapidly turn to tragedy if we fail to maintain and enforce the high standards and values expected of us. The number one cause of holiday fatalities among Soldiers and their families is motor vehicle accidents. Most of these accidents result from driving while fatigued,
driving too fast, exercising poor judgment, and driving under the influence of alcohol. If each of us is committed to upholding our common values, these tragedies can be prevented. I expect every leader be personally involved in efforts to raise safety awareness. Engaged leadership at every level is the key to safety success. You must use your resources and influence to reach every single Soldier. It is vital our Soldiers understand their responsibilities to be safe, behave themselves and always live the Army Values. This holiday also affords lead-
ers opportunities to serve those they lead, especially single Soldiers who are away from their families. I enjoy seeing command teams serving at dining facilities during the Thanksgiving feast. I’ve done this many times myself and it has always been a rewarding experience. Christy and I hope you will all look after yourselves, your friends and family this holiday season. Treasure this time and celebrate responsibly. From our family to yours, happy Thanksgiving! Arctic Warriors! Arctic Tough!
Commissaries to begin scanning shopper ID cards at checkout DeCA Public Affairs news release Commissaries will soon begin scanning customers’ Department of Defense ID cards during checkout, as the Defense Commissary Agency continues its pursuit to deliver a 21st Century benefit. The commissary at Fort Lee, Va., became the first store to scan ID cards, Oct. 22, as the first part of an agency-wide roll-out to all stores that began Nov. 10, and will be completed by mid-January.

TFrom X RESCUE, Page A-1 “There was a turn in the road ahead of him, but he was jackknifed and slid right over the edge of the road and hit a snow bank. The truck came to rest with the cab in the snow bank and the back tires of the trailer on the road,” Barber said. “But he was right at the edge of about a 600-foot drop. “That snow was the only thing between him and the drop.” Barber stopped their vehicle about 80 yards from the wrecked semi, concerned they might join the driver in a long skid down the icy, treacherous road. While Barber quickly began putting on heavy winter gear that had been too bulky to drive with, Cabaniss sprang into action – running toward the accident. “I just did it; just went,” Cabaniss said. “I didn’t really think about it. And when I got to the edge of the road and looked down the embankment, I saw the door of the cab propped open. The trucker was wedged between the door and the side of his vehicle.” Barber said his friend’s next words made the danger clear. “We’ve gotta get him out of here – the truck may go down!” Cabaniss shouted. So Cabaniss went over the edge of the road and found himself in waist-deep snow without even hitting a solid surface below. He half-swam his way to the cab and helped the dazed and injured trucker out. Unfortunately, the trucker had not been fully geared up against the elements while

driving, and the violent impact had tossed all the gear around the damaged cab. “He was freaking out. He only had jeans and a T-shirt on, and had managed to grab a boot and a tennis shoe when he came out of the cab,” Cabaniss said. “And he appeared shocked … he kind of froze up on me.” Aside from the trucker’s delayed ability to move, Cabaniss realized he would soon literally freeze up, based on the elements and lack of shoes and proper clothing. In addition, there was still a very real

staffing horsepower and services of several entities from the 673d Air Base Wing to flesh out the training. To herd such a gathering of resources might present a monumental task – if they weren’t already working together, as the Joint Installation Prevention Team. The JIPT comprises representatives from Army Community Service, the Health and Wellness Center, the JBER hospital, Family Advocacy and many others. It’s this team Petersen turned to for resources. “Julia Petersen brought this challenge (R2C),” said Air Force Lt. Col. Dan Knight, JIPT team leader. “The (JIPT) was the perfect forum to introduce that, with all the key players there, which is what the prevention team is about. They were able to tap into all that expertise and help build that program, working with the USARAK-unique requirements and tailor programs to meet them.” “Even though services and service providers are known and try to get their information out, it’s hard to connect with (customers) and provide services that meet the needs and don’t conflict with training schedules already in place,” said Tamera Randolf, 673d Air Base Wing customer service officer. Randolf also said the training had a dual role – one was to get the training in, but also to introduce leaders to the services and providers so they know what tools they have available.
rigger school,” said Cabrera, who currently serves as the rigger platoon leader for 725th Brigade Support Battalion, 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), 25th Infantry Division. “It was my first taste of rigging.” For Elizabeth, N.J. native Pfc. Thomas Perez, a rigger with the Centurion Battalion, being airborne was all he wanted to do when he joined the Army. “I wanted to be airborne, anything that had to do with airborne,” said Perez. “It was an exciting fulfillment for me. That’s what I always wanted to do and I’m glad that I made that decision.” For Centurion riggers there are multiple steps when it comes to packing a personnel parachute. For the main parachute there are 10 rigger checks and for the reserve there are 12 rigger checks. The procedure begins with laying out the parachute, ensuring the lines are in order, and inspecting for holes. As a rigger packs a parachute, an inspector observes and ensures the process is correctly performed. An “in-processor” and a final inspector further check the process and the parachute itself. “These parachutes are a life line every single time someone goes out an airplane,” said Cabrera, a native of Petoskey, Mich. A rigger’s job is one that goes beyond normal responsibility. For riggers, each day is not a training day; it’s a life or death day. “It’s a lot of responsibility. Every single one of those parachutes that goes out, we’re responsible for,” said Cabrera. “These are privates first class, specialists, who are packing life support equipment. They work with life support equipment every day. ... They train for it all the time. These guys [the riggers] aren’t training; they’re doing it on a daily basis.” After each rigger check, the inspector verifies they followed each of the steps. For every single one of those 10 steps an instructor will walk up and verify that they’ve done each one. At the end, once it’s all rigged up, and the inspector has done the 10th check, the parachute is passed off to the final inspector, who actually walks through with their
Looking ahead The Army’s Ready and Resilient Campaign integrates and synchronizes multiple efforts and programs to improve the readiness and resilience of the Army, including families, Soldiers and civilians. It’s a broad program that aims at problems ranging from sexual harassment to suicide. It is meant to start long-term solutions, and the lessons learned from this week will be watched by both USARAK and the air base wing. In the third phase, USARAK will review data and results, and commanders will adjust training accordingly. In all, the goal is to help people cope with the kind of soul-searing experiences DeKever spoke about – but in the healthiest way possible.
possibility the truck would slide off the drop – taking them both with it to their doom. “I told him the truck might go, and that got him moving a bit,” Cabaniss said. “So I helped pull him back through that deep snow and then we got him back to our vehicle to warm up. We put a jacket on him and gave him water.” Barber said the pair then drove about 10 miles back down the road, where they’d noticed a highway maintenance station with a pay phone.
Cell phone service was non-existent in the remote area. The trucker managed to dial a few numbers and they put out some calls on a citizen’s band radio, but no one answered in either case. About 35 minutes later, a Department of Transportation safety official finally came by the station and picked up the driver. It was the last the master sergeants saw of the man whose life they’d saved, but they contacted his employer and learned the driver is already back out on the road. “We found out this guy was one of the most experienced truckers operating in the area,” Cabaniss said. “That fact, plus the fact that besides us, no one else would have come by for 45 minutes or more, really made me realize that in Alaska, you have to always be ready to take care of yourself. “You can’t always just run outside and yell for help or make a phone call. His truck wasn’t running due to the wreck. In those temperatures, he probably wouldn’t have lasted the 45 minutes until someone else came by, especially not being dressed for the weather.” Barber said the experience reinforced the need to dress properly, have all emergency supplies, and be ready and able to help yourself or others should a situation take a turn for the worse. Cabaniss said he’s been up that route many times before and has never seen something like this happen, which could lead to a false sense of safety and security. “You just can’t get complacent here,” Cabaniss said.

checklist ensuring everything is tucked in, the static line is stowed correctly and the log record book is filled out correctly. The final inspector also reviews anything on the outside of the parachute that a jumpmaster would inspect, such as the static line. “Its fun,” said Perez. “It’s a chance to put a piece of equipment on somebody’s back that you put your hard work and time into, and you’ve given it your all to make
sure that it is safe, it looks good, and it performs well.” When it comes to supporting the Spartan Brigade in airborne missions, riggers work together as a team to live up to the rigger motto, “I will be sure always.” “It was the most fun I had in the Army so far,” said Cabrera. “That’s why I’m here and why I come in every day because I love these guys and I love what they do.”
provides robust notification capabilities, everyone must remember their Wingman responsibilities to ensure the 100-percent solution. For the daily user, with the exception of the desktop alerts, users will only be notified on their personal phone lines for actual emergency situations such as, but not limited to, severe weather events, evacuation orders, specialized recalls, and active shooter alerts. “Ultimately, the goal of the installation command post is to provide a means of rapidly notifying JBER personnel during times of emergencies, through multiple avenues, and to accelerate the installation’s response,” Hovestadt said. Since its implementation at JBER, AtHoc has been put into practice during simulated emergency situations and wartime scenarios.
Air Force Lt. Col. David McCleese, 773d Civil Engineer Squadron commander and Emergency Operations Center director, said AtHoc is a vital tool in these circumstances. “Emergency notifications are important to ensure preservation of life and property,” McCleese said. “It allows us to quickly recover from whatever contingency is threatening the mission. It’s important we get the word out so everyone understands the character of an emergency so people understand where to go or not go.” For more information or to address AtHoc technical issues, contact the installation command post at 552-3000.

Alaska Air National Guardsmen rescue four at Caswell Lake By Sgt. Edward Eagerton AKNG Public Affairs
Airmen with the Alaska Air National Guard’s 210th and 212th Rescue Squadrons rescued three adults and one child who had broken through ice and become hypothermic while four-wheeling at Caswell Lake, north of Willow Nov. 11. “The group had gone fourwheeling at Caswell Lake when they broke through ice,” said Air National Guard Maj. Keenan Zerkel, a senior controller with the 11th Air Force Rescue Coor-
dination Center. “I don’t know if they went into the creek or the lake, but they were cold and wet.” T h e 11 t h A i r Force RCC was notified by the Alaska State Troopers at 1:10 a.m. when the troopers determined they were unable to transport the distressed group out of their location. “The Alaska State Troopers sent two troopers on snowma-
chines to locate the group,” Zerkel said. “When they arrived, they found the group to be near hypothermic. At that point, they couldn’t get them out, and so they contacted us to support the mission.” The Alaska Air National Guard launched a HH-60 Pave Hawk helicopter from the 210th Rescue Squadron with a team of Guardian Angels from the 212th
Rescue Squadron from Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson to support the rescue mission. Using night vision, the rescue crew members navigated through the snowy night to Caswell Lake. Once on the scene, the Guardian Angels were lowered to the ground and hoisted the group one by one into the Pave Hawk. “They were recovered using a hoist because they were in rough terrain,” Zerkel said. “Inside the helicopter, they provided the group with warm fluids, blankets and heat.” The group of four was then
flown to Providence Alaska Medical Center and released to medical professionals at approximately 5:30 a.m. “The crew members did a superb job,” Zerkel said. “From being woken up in the middle of the night, to getting airborne so quickly, locating the distressed group in the dark and snowy conditions, and then bringing them back safely to the hospital, they are the definition of excellence.” The Alaska Air National Guard’s 210th and 212th Rescue Squadrons were awarded four saves for this mission.

Hazard communication All workplace supervisors should be aware of the new, basewide, changes to the hazard communication program for hazardous materials, which is effective immediately. These changes have been introduced through various multimedia presentations sent out by both the 673d Aeromedical Squadron Public Health, and bioenvironmental engineering flights. Each industrial work area, Army or Air Force, is required to have an individual HAZMAT/ HAZCOM program established per Air Force Instruction 90-821, Hazard Communication and Occupational Safety. Training presentations have been emailed to all shop/flight supervision; which detail the numerous changes to be made. Compliance with these changes is mandated at a federal level by 29 Code of Federal Regulations 1910.1200, Occupational Safety and Health Standards. For an additional copy of the mentioned training, or for a more detailed explanation of all changes, call the Bio-environmental Flight at 384-0482. Rental Partnership The Rental Partnership Program at JBER is available to all eligible active-duty members and consists of two options. The first option, RPP Plus,
includes utilities and sometimes cable costs providing an easier budget with a set rental payment year round.

Both options are made available with no deposits or fees to the member with the exclusion of pet fees as applicable. This program is designed to provide active-duty military personnel, enlisted and officers, accompanied and unaccompanied with affordable off-base housing. An allotment must be executed under either option of the RPP for the rental payments which is made directly to the landlord resulting in a more trouble free transactions.

Seasonal affective disorder can be easily treated
Volume 4, No. 45
during winter months
By Air Force Staff Sgt. Sheila deVera JBER Public Affairs
s the days get shorter during the cold, harsh winter months, some people develop more than just a simple case of the blues. Seasonal affective disorder, or SAD, is a type of depression that affects a person during the same season each year. If you get depressed in the winter, but feel much better in spring and summer, you may have SAD, according to webmd.com. Often, due to a changing environment, seasonal disorder is mistaken for an adjustment disorder. The pattern can be similar, though adjustment disorder is more centered on the idea of location, work or stress-related issues and lasts as long as the stress exists. Seasonal is tied to the time of year and conditions. “Seasonal has to do with a form of major depressive disorder,” said Air Force Capt. Chad Killpack, 673d Medical Operations Squadron mental health clinical psychologist. “But it has a seasonal component to it.” People who live in places with long winter nights are at greater risk of SAD. Depressive symptoms increase as winter approaches, temperatures drop and days are shorter. Losing five minutes of sunlight per day is the main culprit during the winter, Killpack said. With a lack of sunlight, the brain has a difficult time figuring out the sleep-wake cycle - causing people to sleep more and have less energy. “When the lack of sunlight hits, it changes the brain chemistry and [a person] starts thinking depressive thoughts,” Killpack said. The 673d Mental Health uses the acronym ‘SIGECAPS’ to look for main symptoms of depression: • Sleep disturbance • Interest/pleasure reduction • Guilt feelings or thoughts of worthlessness • Energy changes/fatigue • Concentration/attention impairment • Appetite/weight changes • Psychomotor disturbances (agitation or lethargy) • Suicidal thoughts Having these symptoms tied to winter months is very likely due to seasonal depression, Killpack said. Statistically, seasonal affective disorder in the United States occurs in about five percent of adults older than 35 and is more common in women. Though SAD is common to adults, children can get SAD but often show different symptoms.

“Children can still be diagnosed with seasonal disorder if it’s tied to winter months,” Killpack said. “It is less common for children, and their symptoms are more severe irritability and whining in winter than summer, unlike an adult’s typical depression.” If these signs exist in children, Killpack suggests parents see their primary care manager. owever, those who already have been diagnosed with major depressive disorder are more likely to get SAD. Symptoms of SAD tend to come back year after year or occur when families move from a warmer climate like Hawaii or Florida, with lots of sunlight to northern regions such as Alaska, where winter is much darker. To combat symptoms of SAD, Killpack suggests creating a bucket list for winter. “Get out and do things and find something you enjoy,” Killpack said. “Start planning ahead for activities in the winter prior to the season. “When we do things and be proactive, we tend to feel better. When we stay home, we isolate ourselves and don’t want to do
things, we tend to feel worse. So it’s a very straightforward way of treating depression and also seasonal depression.” For individuals who do not want to brave the cold, 20 minutes a day of light therapy can help combat seasonal depression. The light therapy can mimic the full spectrum of light similar to what the sun produces and is ideal in any location when there is not enough sunlight in the winter. Many retail stores in Alaska carry “happy lights” for anywhere from $40 to $200. “With less exposure to sunlight during winter, light therapy regulates my internal biological clock,” said Air Force Capt. Ian Isip, 673d Air Base Wing sexual assault response coordinator, who uses a light to prevent SAD symptoms. “It maintains the chemical balance in my body.” “The light boxes work great, but if you can get out for the day with direct sunlight on your face, it’s good.” Killpack said. “If you’re out but there is no sun, then taking Vitamin D and being active is also a good way to combat seasonal disorder. Regular exercise and proper nutrition will help.” Depending on a PCM’s recommenda-
Get out and do things, and find something you enjoy.
tion, vitamin D can be prescribed to military members and their families. It can also be found the vitamin aisles of many stores. Isip, a veteran of several Alaska winters, said he does one hour a day of light therapy and takes one vitamin D capsule a day. (This also helps his immune system against common colds. ) Broad-spectrum light therapy includes wavelengths which allow the skin to produce vitamin D. Exposure to sunlight accounts for more than 90 percent of the daily vitamin D requirement for most individuals, and when members have a vitamin D deficiency, it can play a role in SAD. Many doctors prescribe 500 to 1000 I.U. of vitamin D daily. The best and cheapest therapy is just getting into the sun and being active. “To keep myself busy during winter, I hit the gym a lot more [cardio, weightlifting and circuit training],” said Isip. “I also try to be more social, like attending different events.” full-package treatment such as light therapy, vitamin D, regular exercise and proper nutrition will help you fight feeling blue. “Don’t be afraid to go out this winter and enjoy the snow,” Isip said. “You don’t have to be a professional skier or snowboarder to enjoy it. Regardless of what you end up doing, please don’t forget to be safe.”

Significance of Hanukkah for service members Commentary by Chris McCann and Army Chaplain (Lt. Col.) John Kaiser Hanukkah comes from the Hebrew word for â€œdedication,â€? remembering the rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem after its desecration in 167 B.C.E. by the forces of the Seleucid Empire. After Alexander the Greatâ€™s conquest of much of the known world, his empire was divided between his four top generals. In 175 B.C.E., Antiochus IV ascended the Seleucid throne and in 168 the Seleucids sacked the Temple in Jerusalem. Many Jews had already become somewhat Hellenized due to Greek influence in the area, and Antiochus allied with them. Jewish worship was banned; study of the scriptures and Jewish law was punished by death. Greek philosophy had no use for Jewish thought which was considered superstitious and unscientific. Legend has it that Jews continued to gather to discuss scripture and tradition. But if a Greek happened by, they appeared to simply be playing a game â€“ spinning a top and gambling. The dreidel was simply a subterfuge. The attempt to crush Jewish worship set off a revolt by a group of Jews that came to be known as the Maccabees â€“ Hebrew for â€œhammers.â€? After eight major battles and several more small skirmishes, the Maccabees led the Jews to victory. The Greeks had slaughtered pigs, considered unclean in Judaism, on the sacred altar in the Temple. They had damaged and destroyed many of the other items, too. The Jews, still led by the Maccabees, cleaned and

repaired as much as they could and prepared to rededicate the Temple. An important item in the Temple was the menorah â€“ a seven-branched lamp with a cup of olive oil on each branch. It was kept lit except while being cleaned; but after the destruction of so much by the Greeks, only one flask of oil was found with the High Priestâ€™s seal intact. Using impure oil would have been a grave error. Nonetheless, the Jews filled the menorah with the oil â€“ just enough for one dayâ€™s light â€“ and commenced the rededication of the Temple. Others went to work harvesting new oil that could be used. Miraculously, the oil from the one cruse burned for all of the eight days it took to gather more. The miracle has been celebrated ever since. While Hanukkah often falls near
Christmas and is sometimes seen as â€œJewish Christmas,â€? traditionally only small gifts (or none at all) are given. Money is given to charity, and foods fried in olive oil are eaten to commemorate the miracle of the oil. Potato latkes are eaten with sour cream or applesauce, and jam-filled donuts, or sufganiyot, are a favorite of children. The Hanukkah candles (or cups of oil) are lit just before sundown, and the menorah (with eight branches, to commemorate the eight nights, plus a â€˜servantâ€™ candle placed higher or lower so as not to be mistaken for one of the eight) is displayed where the public can see it. (Often called a menorah, but â€˜hanukkiyahâ€™ is more technically correct.) The light from the hanukkiyah is not to be used for anything but enjoyment and publicizing the miracle. While the lights are

burning, usually for about an hour, no one works â€“ especially women. Why women? The book of Maccabees tells of a woman with seven sons; they were brought to the Temple where Antiochus IV ordered them to eat pork. One by one, the sons refused and were killed. When the youngestâ€™s turn came, Antiochus told the mother to save her son by telling him to eat the pork. Instead, she asked the son what he wanted to do; he said he would rather die than give in to the evil king. He was killed, and the mother was thrown from the wall of Jerusalem. Another woman, Judith, from the village of Bethulia, is said to have snuck out of her besieged city and plied General Holofernes with cheese and wine; when he was asleep, she beheaded him and took the head to the village where she hung it from the wall. The Greeks, frightened by the viciousness of a Jewish woman, could only imagine what the men would do, and abandoned their siege. We pause our lives to recall the miracles and to honor the contributions of these womenâ€™s dedication to God. Many cities have a large menorah in the public square, often where the community Christmas tree is, in a multi-faith display. While Hanukkah is always on the Hebrew date Kislev 25, the Hebrew calendar has a variable number of days, so the festival swings between early November and late December by the Gregorian calendar. Jews around the world, from Alaska to Afghanistan, will light menorahs this year starting at sundown Nov. 27. (2013 is the only year in which the first day of Hanukkah falls on Thanksgiving; the conjunction will not occur again for almost 80,000 years.) In 2013 it is important that we remember Hanukkah, not just for religious reasons. Historically, the Maccabean Revolt is the first war recorded in history that was fought not for territorial expansion, but solely for religious freedom. That alone makes it significant for Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines for we are sworn to defend the Constitution of the United States. The First Amendment of the Constitution guarantees freedom of religion which allows people the opportunity to find light in the darkness. Hanukkah is also important for Christians, because we read in John 10:22, â€œThen came the Feast of Dedication at Jerusalem. It was winter, and Jesus was in the temple area walking in Solomonâ€™s Colonnade.â€? This passage indicates that Jesus, as an observant Jew, celebrated the festival of rededication, Hanukkah, which marked a military campaign that was fought for religious freedom. As we know from Luke 7:9 and Acts 10, Jesus has a high regard for faithful, Godfearing military members.

Heroic Airmen rescue family from log cabin fire Otter Lake cabin conflagration brings out the best in JBER Airmen By Air Force Staff Sgt. Zachary Wolf JBER Public Affairs Flames spread on the floor and start climbing up the walls. Everyone inside is asleep, unaware of the danger that they are in. A dog barks and scratches the bed in the back room where a pregnant woman and another mother sleep by their children. They wake up to a horrible realization -- the fire has spread and they are trapped in the back room. A group of friends of the 673d Force Support Squadron decided to rent cabins at Otter Lake for a family event, to relax after a long week at the dining facility that was busy due to Red Flag-Alaska. Luckily two Airmen were awake and noticed a glow coming from a cabin. Tech. Sgt. Daniel Park, 176th Force Support Flight shift supervisor, and Senior Airman Gary Heath, 673 FSS storeroom operations technician, had stayed up around the bonfire while all the other families went back to their cabins to get some sleep. “I saw a glow and I just knew something was out of place,” Park, said. When they got closer, they knew what that glow was and went to action. They bashed in the front door and went in; the fire flared. They pulled Staff Sgt. Kevin Warren, 703rd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, from the front room; he had been trying to get through to the back room where his wife and daughter were. “We couldn’t get past the fire to the door that separated the two rooms so we both left the cabin and went to other cabins to find fire extinguishers,” Park said. After an unsuccessful search for the extinguishers, Heath and Park ran back to the cabin that was on fire and tried the side windows. Giving up, Heath ran around back where the window was open and the children had already been lowered to the ground. Kat Warren was the last one in the cabin but the window wouldn’t accommodate her

pregnant belly. Park pulled the window back forcing it to open wider as Heath helped Mrs. Warren, the pregnant mother, out the window. “I talked to Kat and she said as I was pulling her out, the fire was already hitting her feet,” Heath said. While Kat was being pulled to safety, another Airman noticed the fire. Senior Airman Nathan Bonner, 673 FSS fitness specialist, woke up to screams. “I heard Kevin screaming after they (Heath and Park) pulled him out and that’s when I got up and realized something was wrong,” Bonner said. “I heard him screaming his wife and daughter’s name over and over again and I didn’t even hesitate; I didn’t even put a shirt or shoes on, ran right to the front door through the fire to the back room to make sure everyone was out.” After Bonner got out of the house, he called 911 while Heath attempted to use a fire extinguisher to quench the flames, but had no effect. Emergency personnel were already on the way when Bonner called. “I knew who was in there, it’s a human life, I would have done it for anyone; burnt feet is better than having someone dying in
a fire,” Bonner said. No one was seriously injured in the fire but Trooper, the dog, that initially warned the campers in the back room, didn’t make it. Bonner said that the only thing he regretted while he ran into the burning cabin was that he didn’t look under the bed for Trooper. “It’s funny how it happened because none of us were planning on going in,” Bonner said. “We all decided to go last minute. If we hadn’t gone, it could have ended up completely different; it could have ended up a lot worse.” Park, Heath and Bonner shared the same sentiments in explaining why they did this. “You weren’t really in fear for yourself at all; it was fear for everyone else’s life,” Heath said. This wasn’t the first fire Heath has run into to save a life. During his deployment from 2011 to 2012, Heath ran into a burning building to save the life of a civilian. “To be honest, you are not thinking it at the time, but it would be way worse to realize that you didn’t do something when you could,” Heath said. All three Airmen had singed hair, but otherwise were unharmed.
“It’s your character; it’s who you are, when it happens,” Heath said. “You don’t think ‘Hey this is something I am going to do or this is something I’m not; you either do it or you don’t. You won’t know if you are that type of person until you are in that situation.” That type of person is one their commander is proud of. “Our Airmen embody the Air Force core value of ‘service before self’ and demonstrated their heroism in helping to save these members’ lives,” said Air Force Capt. Heather Simone, 673d Force Support Squadron sustainment services flight commander. “I definitely applaud their efforts and it is no surprise they acted in such a manner; they are exemplary Airmen and I’m proud to serve with them.” All three Airmen agreed the incident has brought them closer together. “It’s a bonding experience to know that you are surrounded by people that would do the same good deed you would,” Heath said. “It was more the realization that we all put others before ourselves, and share that character; that is what brought us closer,” Park added.
