‘Thanks
for asking’
Putting a face on
domestic violence
By Shayna Brouker
U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden
Public Affairs Office
What does it take for a stranger to intervene in the face of brutality?
That’s the question Army Community
Service’s Family Advocacy Program set out
to answer with a social experiment conducted
Sept. 30 and Oct. 1. Nine volunteers from the
community wore realistic-looking makeup
depicting bruises, black eyes, choke marks
and more — the physical scars of domestic
violence.
They went about their days, took note of
who (if anyone) stopped to express concern
and gave them a card that read “Thanks for
asking,” explaining the experiment and offering the number of the domestic violence
hotline. The event was intended to be a
“bystander intervention gauge.”
Out of a total of 225 face-to-face interactions with others, 46 verbally inquired about
the marks for a “success” rate of 20 percent.
That number upset Amy Congdon, one of
Wiesbaden’s three FAP victim advocates
who organized the event and wore makeup
herself.
“We were disappointed,” she said.
“From a psychological standpoint, we are

members can look forward to thrills,
chills and good wholesome, family
fun as Halloween approaches. With
a host of different events planned
ranging from traditional trick-or-treat
activities to haunted houses, a Harvest Festival to a Zumbathon, people
young and old are invited to join in
the celebration.
Drivers are advised to slow down
Trick-or-treaters will be out in
force Oct. 31 from 5-7 p.m.
and to be especially cautious when
driving on U.S. military installations
on Halloween, Oct. 31, during official
trick-or-treat hours from 5-7 p.m.
Children, likewise, should be
advised by adults to only cross at
crosswalks, to never dart out from
between parked cars, to wear reflective, light-colored costumes that don’t
restrict vision or movement, and to
stick together with their friends — or
in the case of children younger than
12 — with an adult. Trick-or-treaters
should also be told to never enter housing residences. Housing occupants
will set up trick-or-treat stations at

Commentary
Freedom 6 sends
USAREUR 2020 Campaign Plan
By Lt. Gen. David
Campbell Jr.
Commander of U.S. Army
Europe
I am very excited to announce the introduction of
USAREUR 2020, the new
campaign plan for the command, which outlines and
provides direction for where Lt. Gen. Donald
we want to place our efforts Campbell Jr.
and emphasis in the future.
The purpose of the plan is to describe what we
do as an organization and provide a vision for our
success. To that end, there are four main objectives
we intend to achieve.
First, that USAREUR forces are trained and ready
to execute any mission requirement we receive and
that our leaders are professionally developed. This also
includes our support to the Army’s Regionally Aligned
Forces initiative, which is highlighted in Operation
Atlantic Resolve in the Baltic’s and Poland and the
transfer of authority from our 173rd Infantry Brigade
Combat Team (Airborne) to 1st Brigade Combat
Team, 1st Cavalry Division out of Fort Hood, Texas.
Second, that we maintain and build upon our relationships with NATO, allies and partners to ensure
interoperability, enhance partnership capacity and
ensure strategic access. Annually, we conduct over
1,000 security cooperation activities and events to
support this objective, and we will continue to work
hard to sustain those quality training opportunities.
Third, that the theater is set to support and sustain
unified land operations, contingencies and operational
missions and resources are used efficiently and effectively. Force-structure changes across the theater,
equipment fielding and maintenance, consolidating
infrastructure and facilities, maintaining operational
sites, and funding reductions play a large role in planning for future years.
Finally, and most importantly, that we ensure our
Soldiers, civilians and family members are ready
and resilient to meet mission requirements and our
communities are safe and secure. This includes a
focus on SHARP, as well as collective synchronization, integration and prioritization of programs and
services designed to sustain and enhance our people
and our communities.
I truly believe accomplishing these goals will
ensure our day-to-day operations aim at preventing
conflict and preparing for an uncertain future, while
promoting the well-being of our entire USAREUR
family. I have no doubt we will successfully communicate and execute this plan across our team and
continue to be a professional, dedicated and resilient
Army force in Europe.

Barracks
question
Functional fitness limited
Gerald T. asked: Overall, the Wiesbaden Fitness Center is a great facility.
The functional fitness (like CrossFit)
space is limited. A recommendation
for improvement: Could the Tony Bass
gym be converted to an annex focused
on functional fitness? Some pull-up
bars, a climbing rope and a wall for
throwing against would enable more
functional fitness.
Response: Thanks, Gerald, for the
excellent observation. To answer your
question, we have an approved project
to build an annex outside of the back of
the Wiesbaden Fitness Center to house
CrossFit. We anticipate the project will
be completed in fiscal year 2015. The
Tony Bass gym had been considered in
the past, but this is no longer a viable
option as the facility is used for other
training and special events. Thanks
for your continued interest in wellness
and fitness.

Outstanding library
Bob S. commented: The service I
received yesterday at the Wiesbaden
Library was outstanding. Not only are
you the busiest Army library worldwide,
but your service is outstanding. Keep up
the good work.
Response: Wonderful feedback,
Bob. Wiesbaden’s Library staff does an
outstanding job of serving customers
with a wide variety of library services
and selections. The Wiesbaden Library is the busiest worldwide in the
Department of Defense, evidenced by
the circulation statistics for fiscal year
2014 — 171,324 items checked out.
Hours at the Re-Use/Recycle
Center
Scott H. asked: The Reuse Center
is great, but can we get better opening
hours so that we don’t have to take time
away from work to dump our stuff? I’d
like to see the center open until at least
5:30 p.m. Monday to Friday and open
every Saturday until 4 p.m.
Response: Thanks for the positive
feedback about the center on Clay
Kaserne. We continually look for opportunities to expand the hours of the
Re-use/Recycle Center; however, we
do not have the staffing available to
work the hours and times suggested.
Also, the volunteer options we have
explored are not sustainable. The hours
were expanded not long ago so that
the center now stays open until 6 p.m.
on Thursdays and is open the second
Saturday of each month from 10 a.m.
to 4 p.m. For those unable to access

Help for injured animals
Niki K. commented: Twice, I’ve
called the non-emergency MP line for
help regarding wildlife. Both times I’ve
been told it’s not the MP’s concern, and
I can either call the German Animal
Control or Fire Department. When I
asked for the number of the German
Animal Control the second time, I was
told I could look it up on the Internet.
Instead both times I talked to the Fire
Department. While they said it wasn’t
their job to deal with wildlife, they had
no problem in helping me with my
concerns (injured pigeon at the PX and
hedgehog in our yard, respectively).

baden deputy to the commander, where he lauded
AFAP as the engine for a lot of the local and historic
change in Army communities through the years, and
as it evolves from the Army Family Covenant to the
Total Army Strong promise. “Your participation in
AFAP assists the Army in finding that right balance
in using its resources to help families.”
After a brief training and orientation session,
Annikka Trabucco, AFAP manager, divided the 20
volunteer delegates from the community into two
groups to plow through the quality-of-life issues.
“The power of AFAP — all it takes is one submission and you can literally change laws,” said Trabucco,
“Through the conference they see how it can make
a difference.”
Some already understood the process and its potency, and were eager to dive in to bringing about results.
“Even though we are delegates, we are also a part
of the community. We want to be a part of the solution, not the problem. Here we get to come up with
the solution for many issues,” said Clara Broomhead,
a delegate who first participated in AFAP about 15
years ago.
Federica LeMauk, who served as a facilitator
during the conference, said she likes the process of
prioritizing the issues, as she has been an avid AFAP
participant for more than 15 years.
“The best part is when delegates have those ‘ah-ha’
moments,” she said, adding that many of the issues
submitted arise from a lack of awareness or knowledge
of community resources or regulations.
“Our focus is to improve the quality of life for everyone in the community,” said Trabucco, explaining
that issues were prioritized based on scope, attainability, fiscal and manpower requirements.
The delegates’ efforts at the conference closeout
returned six recommendations. They were: amend
AER 600-700 to grant survivors of fallen Soldiers
the same Army Post Office privileges as active
duty; develop Hainerberg as a continuing option for
kindergarten after school care; conduct an assessment of the post office hours of operation and staff
scheduling to be able to offer extended openings at
least once weekly; enforce the 80-day hiring process
for specialty medical staff at the Wiesbaden clinic to
remedy staffing shortfalls that impact timeliness of
scheduling appointments; create a dedicated drop-off
and pickup zone for Clay Kaserne Child Development
Center patrons; and finalize the Master Sidewalk Plan
for Clay Kaserne to bolster pedestrian safety.

not surprised by these results.
But we found some trends that
were not expected, like mothers
shielding their children (from the
‘abuse victims’). To be quite honest, doing it broke my heart as a
female and as a victim advocate.”
Of the one male volunteer bearing a black eye, people assumed
he had gotten punched in a bar
fight, Congdon said, adding that
an employee at the Bookmark
didn’t ask what happened but look
saddened and said with a lowered
voice, “I hope your day
gets better.”
Congdon stressed that
not everyone living overseas, herself included, has
friends and family to look
out for him or her, hence the importance of bystander intervention.
“Victims need a support system,” she said. “Somebody has
to say something. We need to do
better, take that extra step and
think about it as ‘I would want
someone to do this for my family,’
not ‘It’s none of my business.’”
Photos and stories
of the volunteers were
on display at the “Take
Back the Night” candlelight walk Oct. 22

domestic violence prevention.
Congdon encouraged anyone concerned about domestic violence

Garrison, city officials meet to reduce noise pollution
Story and photo by
Karl Weisel
U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden
Public Affairs Office
U.S. military and local
Wiesbaden-area officials met
Oct. 8 to discuss ways to further
reduce noise pollution during
the second Noise Abatement
Commission meeting of 2014.
“Noise complaints in 2014
are down significantly from
2013,” said Col. Mary Martin,
U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden
commander, while opening
the session which included
participation by military and civilian aviation staff, Wiesbaden
Mayor Arno Gossmann and
other surrounding community
leaders, and a representative
from the BILGUS citizen’s
initiative group.
Martin said the reduction in
noise complaints was primarily
thanks to a concerted effort
by Wiesbaden-based aviation
units to reduce the burden of
noise pollution on the local
population.
During the hour-long meeting at the Wiesbaden Entertainment Center, U.S. and German
military officials shared data
reflecting the decrease in summer flying hours over the past
year, alterations in flight patterns around Wiesbaden Army
Airfield to reduce noise over
neighboring communities, and
an increase in aviation traffic
at other airfields away from the
Wiesbaden area reducing local
aircraft training missions.
“We’re continuing to make
improvements to our practices
around the airfield,” said Lt.
Col. Mark Kappelmann, 1st
Battalion, 214th Aviation Regiment commander, explaining
that through a coordinated
effort to manage the different
missions by the various units,
aviation staff members were
able to reduce the number of
flying days.
“This year we only used
seven nights of flying past
midnight between May and
August,” Kappelmann said,
explaining that aviators also
took 25 nights off in “payback”
for the privilege, as agreed on
between the U.S. military and
German government. “Last
year we flew 14 nights past
midnight (during the Summer
Night Flying Program) and had
21 payback days.”
As agreed upon from past
NAC meetings, the local population was kept better informed
about the Bundeswehr’s oversight of aviation movements in
Germany, the Summer Night
Flying Program and a NATO
exercise — Jackal Stone — that
brought V-22 Ospreys and other
aircraft to the Wiesbaden airfield for training in September.
Uli Soto, USAG Wiesbaden’s government relations
adviser, said there was a 58
percent decrease in noise complaints from the previous
summer.
“It’s important to note that
the number of complaints went
down in the summer months,”
said Wiesbaden’s mayor, thanking the U.S. for using other airfields to reduce local air traffic
and its accompanying noise.
Bundeswehr Maj. Sascha
Greuel of the German Military
Aviation Authority reported that

that he was glad to report that
the citizens’ initiative group also
received fewer noise complaints
this year.
“People have told us it’s
really nice to sit out in your
garden — to enjoy a barbecue
during the summer nights,”
Wulf said, praising the “good
working relationship to address issues.” Calling the steps
taken to alleviate flight noise

it’s “important for the citizens
to see changes made leading to
positive results.”
During a question-andanswer session, attendees asked
if there were any plans to expand

continue to have complaints.
We’ve achieved a lot of goodwill and understanding through
our different communication

if we continue on this path it

“People are working together to keep our joint community informed,” said Martin,
in concluding the NAC meeting.
The goal is keeping citizens

she said, adding that the next

Hispanic Heritage: Legacy of history, present of action and future of success
Story and photos by
Chrystal Smith
U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden
Public Affairs Office
Despite speaking English
with a heavy accent, Sgt. Maj.
Carlos Capacetti said he is
no less an American than the
102 pilgrims who migrated to
America in 1620.
This exceptional diversity
and legacy is what he, along
with other Americans of Hispanic descent and members
of the Wiesbaden community,
celebrated Oct. 15 in observance
of Hispanic Heritage Month at
the Tony Bass Multi-Purpose
Center on Clay Kaserne.
“There is no place in the
world with such a diverse
population like the United
States,” he said as the keynote
speaker of the event. “It is
this diversity that makes our
country what it is today. It is
this diversity that gives us the
tremendous capacity to expand
our minds and be more creative
and innovative.”
In the spirit of the theme
of this year’s celebration,
“Hispanics: A legacy of history, a present of action and a
future of success,” Capacetti
highlighted some contributions of famous HispanicAmericans such as Roberto
Clemente, Jaime Escalante
and the 65th Infantry Regiment from Puerto Rico. He
shared the accomplishments
of immediate relatives to
show even more how his
family and legacy continues
to contribute to the strength
of the nation — cousin Rosa
M. Biaggi, son Jean Carlos
Capacetti and daughter Karla
Capacetti.
The event featured an assortment of dance and music
presentations as expressions
of Spanish, Mexican, Peruvian,
Colombian, Argentinean and
Dominican cultures. Information tables and gave event goers
an opportunity to learn a little
more about the cultures of each
country, such as Panama and
Venezuela. Attendees were also
treated to a food tasting from
the variety of Hispanic cultures.
While tasting the cultures is a
big draw for many to the annual
observance, Bernardo Behrens,
who is a native of Venezuela,
emphasized the importance of
such events for cultivating and
strengthening relationships, as
well as the rich diversity and
widespread influences Hispanic
cultures have had on American
culture.
“When people get exposure
and an understanding of how
others live [and their culture],
they better understand one
another,” said Behrens, who
had elements of his culture
on display at the heritage cel-

your spirit.”

Dodging the zombies
More than 300 Wiesbaden military community members turned out for the Family, Morale, Welfare and Recreation-sponsored five-kilometer
zombie run Oct. 18. The Halloween-themed event, took runners throughout Clay Kaserne — ever on the lookout for the “zombies” portrayed by
members of Wiesbaden’s Better Opportunities for Single Soldiers program and other community volunteers. As screams and moans were heard
around the 5-K route, the costumed volunteers ensured that runners put a little extra pep into their stride as they sprinted away. Photo right:
Spc. D’Lexis Cooley, Wiesbaden BOSS president, recognizes the best volunteers with the best make-up and costumes following the Zombie Run.
Awards went to several participants, including the best zombie dog. FMWR’s next 5-K run in the series will be held Nov. 15 — a free Turkey Trot
starting at 9 a.m. The first 125 people to register get a T-shirt. The event will also feature turkey giveaways. Stop by the Wiesbaden Fitness Center
for more information about that and other upcoming community sports events.
Fall Cleanup
Community-wide beautification
effort to take place Oct. 27-31
The U.S. Army Garrison
Wiebaden holds Fall Cleanup
Oct. 27-31. Housing area and
barracks cleanup is scheduled for
Oct. 29 — the designated place
of duty for on-post residents.
All building and stairwell
coordinators, unit leaders,
activity managers and housing
area residents will clean and
police common use areas, playgrounds, family quarters and
other designated areas within
the family housing areas.
Biodegradable brown bags
for leaf collection can be picked
up from the Clay Kaserne Recycling and Re-Use Center or
the Hainerberg Self-Help Store
which also has some gardening
supplies. The Directorate of
Public Works will place large
bio waste containers within
the Hainerberg, Crestview and
Aukamm housing areas for
residents to dispose of leaf-filled
brown bags. If unable to place
all leaves into the brown bags,
they should be raked into a pile
at the curb to allow DPW to use
a vacuum from the street.
The best building in each
housing area will receive a
building sign of recognition and
a garrison certificate. Judging
will be conducted Oct. 31.
Clean-up tips
z Leaves should be removed from grassy areas.
z Under trees, shrubs and
flower beds leaves could be
used as a mulching layer and
natural fertilizer.
z Rake leaves during dry
weather conditions.
z The biodegradable waste
bin should be used first; for
excess amount of leaves use
brown paper bags (available at
the SHIP or Recycling Center).
z Keep brown paper bags
dry and don’t expose them to
rain before bio (degradable)
waste pick-up day.
Home of the Month
Starting Nov. 14, the garrison will award a home of the
month for one house or apartment building in each housing
area. Judging will be conducted
by the garrison command
sergeant major and Housing
representatives in the middle of
each month. Monthly winners
will receive a “Home of the
Month” sign in their front yard
for one month.

‘Help is here’:
Story and photo by Shayna Brouker
U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden Public Affairs Office
Reminiscing on a time when your relationship was
thriving, being open to what your partner has to say
and learning to cool down in the midst of a heated
argument — these are all time-tested tools used to
repair and strengthen a relationship.
“They sound so simple, but it’s hard,” acknowledged U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden Religious
Support Operations’ newest marriage and family life
counselor-in-training.
With 26 years of happy marriage to his high school
sweetheart, a master’s of divinity, a doctorate in
ministry and 27 years of experience in the Army, Lt.
Col. Rob Walker, U.S. Army Europe chief of medical
logistics, is eager to lend his expertise and ear to the
Wiesbaden community.
“Help is here,” he said. “We will walk this together,
until they can walk it without me. My goal is to work
myself out of a job.”
Walker is an ordained minister working toward
his license as a certified marriage and family life
counselor. He will complete his “internship” at Clay
Chapel, which has been missing a family life chaplain
for over a year now. The need has not diminished;
the health clinic’s Behavioral Health department has
a backlog on appointments.
“We really have a seasoned guy here who can
provide great care,” said USAREUR Deputy Command Chaplain (Lt. Col.) Darin Nielsen, a certified
marriage and family life therapist who serves as
Walker’s supervisor. “I encourage everyone to take
advantage while he’s here.”
While he is still learning about different models and

and emotionally focused therapy.
The Gottman method focuses
on building a “sound relationship
house” as a preventive measure
against contempt. EFT theorizes
that all humans have a need to be
attached to someone, and explores
the many problems that can arise
when attachment is damaged; for
example, infidelity. It has a 65 to
75 percent success rate, defined as
when couples have reached the point

of arguments.

“I’m going to commit myself to spending time with my

becoming a “soccer granddad.”
“We would not have accomplished connectivity without

All three received the Superior Civilian Service Award,
equivalent to the U.S. Army

Brigade launches new Life Skills University
Helping professionals learn life
skills early in their careers
By Karl Weisel
U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden
Public Affairs Office
A new 66th Military Intelligence Brigade initiative is
aimed at helping people learn
various life skills earlier in
their careers, rather than later
by trial and error, according
to Col. Dave Pendall, 66th MI
Brigade commander.
“It’s really about family life and family
life skills,” said
Pendall. “We all
have different challenges … and there
are different stressors over here in
Germany.”
The brigade’s new Life
Skills University — a yearlong
program for Soldiers, family
members and civilians — is
geared toward enhancing life
skills.
“It’s open to anyone in the
brigade,” the commander said,
explaining that often people
get caught up in their careers,
especially in their 20s and 30s,
and don’t adequately learn basic
family skills such as relating
to teenagers, coping with an
aging parent or knowing how
to fully communicate with a
spouse until they are well into
their careers and family
growth.
“It’s about coping strategies that
allow them to be
more confident
and competent,”
Pendall said, adding that the program is
intended to expose younger
leaders to the various resources
available in the community and
to provide first-hand advice
from experienced colleagues
in the unit. “We’re trying in
50 Years
in business
the brigade to leverage these
resources and to focus on a
specific demographic that can
use these life skills.”
“It’s all about mentorship,”
said 66th MI Brigade Command
Sgt. Maj. Brian Shrout. Rather
than focusing on military mission teaching, Soldiers will be
“getting after the personal side
of things.”
“We want Soldiers to know
it’s OK to have a family,” said
Pendall. “This is designed to
accelerate their life skills, rather
than having them learn about
family life by trial and error. It’s
peers sharing best practices —
what worked for them.”
The Life Skills University
kicks off with an open house
Oct. 23 at 4 p.m. at Hainerberg
Elementary School’s multipurpose room. Representatives
from Army Community Service, the Military and Family
Life Counseling Program and
other agencies will be on hand to
introduce their various services and
resources. Followup programs will be
offered throughout
the year, based on
local interest and
needs.
“ I t ’s r e a l l y
part of the Army’s
Ready and Resilient
Campaign,” said
Pendall. “It’s about
balance — helping
people be more effective in their lives.”
Designed to be “low stress
and not mandatory,” the Life
Skills University is modeled
on similar U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command
programs in the United States,
Pendall said. “We wanted to
get something here to help our
young professionals trying to
balance family life with their
work at a relatively early stage
in their careers.”
Members of the brigade
family are invited to “show up
on Oct. 23 to enjoy the fairlike atmosphere,” said Brigade
Chaplain (Maj.) Troy Morken.
“They might find that not only
can they improve their own life
skills, but maybe help someone
else as well.”

Skills University, call Chaplain

Installation Advisory Committee
Educators, community representatives focus on school issues
By Karl Weisel
U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden Public Affairs Office
Traffic, school partnerships and ongoing construction in Hainerberg Housing were topics at the
first Installation Advisory Committee meeting of the
2014/2015 school year.
Education, administration, parent and garrison
officials met Oct. 14 at Wiesbaden Middle School to
address community and school concerns. The committee meets throughout the school year to facilitate
cooperation and coordination between the U.S. Army
Garrison Wiesbaden and Wiesbaden’s Department
of Defense Dependents Schools, according to Peter
Witmer, USAG Wiesbaden’s school liaison officer.
Wiesbaden High School Principal Greg Hatch
reported on construction at the high school which
is continuing to modernize the academic facility to
provide a 21st century learning environment. Hatch
said while the construction and use of temporary classrooms has presented some challenges, the community
and DoDDS have been working closely together to
ensure it does not impact the school routine.
Witmer praised the high school’s recent Homecoming activities, saying they were some of the most
spirited he has seen in a decade, adding that even with
the construction, students, parents and staff did a great
job of celebrating the annual event.
Meanwhile in Aukamm Housing, parent school
representatives asked that Military Police continue
to monitor the flow of traffic to ensure the safety of
children on their way to school — especially at the intersection of Rheinlandstrasse and Württembergstrasse.
The school liaison officer advised parents to ensure
that all local school children wear reflective clothing
as the hours of daylight grow fewer during the fall
and winter months.
Wiesbaden School Bus Officer Dan Samek commented that parents can help improve the flow of traffic
in Hainerberg Housing by not stopping to drop off
their children between the high school and Hainerberg
Chapel, but rather proceed farther up Texasstrasse
past Floridastrasse by the middle school to make the
quick drop-off.
IAC members discussed the upcoming traffic
change in Hainerberg Housing occurring from Oct.
20 to Nov. 20. During that time a portion of Washingtonstrasse will be closed during construction, and
drivers will no longer be able to access the housing
area from highway B-455. Drivers will be able to turn
onto Washingstrasse from B-455 but will only have
access to John. F. Kennedy Strasse and the New Car
Sales offices located across from the new Exchange
construction site, officials noted.
Witmer said unit-school partnerships continue to
play a major role in ensuring academic excellence in
Wiesbaden schools.
Lt. Col. Ryan Howell, who has been extremely
engaged in promoting science, technology, engineering and mathematics at Wiesbaden Middle School
as a member of one of the school’s partner units, the
Defense Science and Technology Center-Europe,
announced that this year’s eCybermission project is
themed “How to make the world better.”
The eCybermission program, administered by the
National Science Teachers Association and sponsored
by the U.S. Army, invites students in grades six through
nine to seek solutions to real-world challenges in their
local communities. The goal of the program, which
awards Savings Bonds to winning teams, according to
the eCybermission home page, is to “cultivate student
interest in science, technology, engineering and math.”
Students have until Dec. 17 to register for this
year’s project at www.ecybermission.com.
Other highlights of the IAC included the upcoming Teachers Orientation event on Clay Kaserne Oct.
29 offering school staff members an insight into the
life of a service member and a visit by members of
the pop group Cimorelli to the middle school during
the afternoon of Oct. 28 before their free concert at
Wiesbaden’s Taunus Theater that evening at 6 p.m.
Julie Wahlers, acting Family Advocacy Program
manager, reported that a Young Women’s Group will
start Nov. 10 (editor’s note: see Young Women’s
Group in the Schoolbits column).
Witmer said the next IAC meeting will be held
in December.

For your health
Army helps moms maintain fitness before, after childbirth
By Chanel Weaver
U.S. Army Public Health Command
It is widely known that U.S. service members
must meet stringent physical standards to serve, but
maintaining a high level of fitness can be a challenge
for pregnant and postpartum Soldiers.
That’s why the Army provides Pregnancy Postpartum Physical Training, or P3T, developed several years
ago to assist these moms with staying healthy and fit.
The intent is to provide safe, standardized physical
training and education led by personnel trained in
pregnancy and postpartum fitness.
“The program is designed to promote readiness
through health by maintaining fitness levels of pregnant
Soldiers and successfully integrating postpartum Soldiers back into unit physical readiness training,” said
Lisa Young, a health educator at the U.S. Army Public
Health Command and program coordinator for P3T.
Army policy mandates enrollment for all pregnant
and postpartum Soldiers. Upon confirmation of pregnancy, the Soldier is exempt from regular unit physical
readiness training. After the Soldier receives medical
clearance from her health care provider, commanders
are instructed to ensure that all eligible pregnant or
postpartum Soldiers enroll.
Here are some answers to basic questions about
P3T:
• Why was P3T created? Based on several Army
studies and current literature it was shown that after
15 months of pregnancy and postpartum, Soldiers who
Page 14
Herald Union
return to unit physical training without intervention
demonstrate reduced fitness levels, increased body
fat, and increases in injuries and illness rates. P3T
offers specifically designed PT for these Soldiers to
help them maintain overall health and well-being.
• Where is P3T available across the Army?
There are currently P3T programs at 26 installations
in the United States; 17 programs in Germany, Japan,
Korea, and Italy; and remote P3T programs overseen
at numerous small installations, Reserve and Army
National Guard units.
• How has it helped women? What have been
the outcomes? In a recent evaluation, postpartum
participants reported that P3T was helpful to them
in passing their diagnostic APFT, returning to their
unit before or at 180 days post-delivery, and meeting
body composition standards.
• How often should a pregnant woman exercise?
According to the American Congress of Obstetricians
and Gynecologists, in the absence of either medical or
obstetric complications, pregnant women can accumulate 30 minutes or more of moderate-level physical
activity most, if not all, days of the week to maintain
health and well-being. A recent article in the Army
Times states that such exercise improves mood, sleep
and energy; prevents pregnancy-related diabetes; and
promotes an easier birth and faster recovery.
• What are some tips for a healthy postpartum
training regimen? After the baby is born, fetal
safety is no longer an issue, but potential injuries for
Soldiers continue due to persistent musculoskeletal and cardiovascular changes.
Postpartum exercises are designed to
regain pre-pregnancy fitness levels, meet
mission requirements, pass the APFT and
meet Army body composition standards.
Exercise sessions should be conducted a

fitness.
minimum of five times a week.
This is a basic postpartum fitness session, according to Young:
• A 10-15 minute warm-up segment, which includes slow movements, dynamic stretching and
slow-cadence calisthenics.
• A 10-20 minute muscular conditioning segment that
may incorporate calisthenic drills, strength endurance
exercises with free weights or resistance bands, situps,
and pushups. The focus now is to prepare the Soldier
to pass the situp and pushup portions of the APFT.
• A 30-45 minute cardio-respiratory segment that
may include low-impact aerobics, speed and agility
drills, cardio machines, circuit training, and ability
group walk/jog/runs. New moms are encouraged to
gradually begin running, increasing the frequency so
that after the first two weeks of returning to P3T, the
Soldier is jogging/running three times a week.
• A 10-minute cool-down segment, which may
include a slowing down of the aerobic activity followed by gentle stationary stretching. All Soldiers’
heart rates must be at or below 100 beats per minute
before leaving the area.

Snapshots from Zambia
Exploring Africa’s natural wonders
By Michelle Stosich
T
Special to the Herald Union
he intriguing description of the famed
Victoria Falls, combined with encouragement from a Zambian colleague, resolved
my dream to travel to Africa to experience one of
the seven natural wonders of the world. Known
as Mosi-oa-Tunya (“smoke that thunders”) in
Zambia, the falls retain the name given in 1855
by the Scottish missionary and explorer Dr. David
Livingstone, who penned the tribute “scenes so
lovely, must have been gazed upon by angels
in their flight” when he first glimpsed the falls
from the island on the Zambezi River that now
bears his name.
Victoria Falls is a shared treasure between
Zambia and Zimbabwe, and at just over 1.7
kilometers wide and 108 meters high, which
is twice as high as North America’s Niagara
Falls, it is an awe-inspiring sight and the greatest curtain of falling water in the world. During
the wet season, more than 500 million liters of
water plummet over the edge every minute into
the gorge over 100 meters below, generating
a phenomenal amount of spray that can shoot
over 1,000 feet into the sky and can be seen up
to 30 miles away.
This misty spray was the inspiration for the
name Mosi-oa-Tunya, and I could see it clearly
from the airplane. Interestingly, all of the local
guides substituted the word “mist” for “smoke”.
While in Zambia I stayed in a hotel that was
actually located inside Mosi-oa-Tunya National
Park. Outside of my hotel room, in the quiet of
the evening, I could faintly hear the roar of the
falls that were less than a five-minute walk away.
The hotel grounds were shared with a plethora
of animals including zebra, giraffe, impala,
monkeys, various birds and annoying ubiquitous
baboons, who created disturbances at breakfast
and had to be chased away by security guards.
Page 16
Herald Union
The service and food were superb, and it was
interesting to sample curried chicken pizza with
bananas on top.
My first glimpse of the Victoria Falls was
all that could be imagined. They are larger than
life and absolutely beautiful. I walked to see
them every day during my visit and never tired
of doing so. Most of the length of the falls lie in
Zambia, but I was able to see the entire wall of
wonder through engaging in a somewhat crazy
act detailed a bit later and via a helicopter tour
above the surrounding landscape.
The word “unique” must be used to describe
Victoria Falls because most waterfalls plunge
over a precipice and are seen from afar or below, but not so for these falls. There you see the
beautifully unique geography of two very wide
basalt cliffs of equal height facing each other,
one over which the torrential falls flow, and the
other providing a perfect vantage point. Another
descriptive for the falls is “inspiring,” as ever present rainbows, absolute grandeur, and an euphony
of water erases all distractions, centering one in
the moment and creating serendipitous memories.
As alluded to earlier, there is a way to get really
close and personal to the falls. Near Livingstone
Island on the Zambian side there is a naturally
formed “armchair” called Devil’s Pool, right
at the edge of the falls. When the river flow is
lower, usually between September and December,
there is a natural rock barrier that forms an eddy,
minimizing the current and allowing adventurous
souls to swim right up to the precipice of the falls
and look over into what would be certain death
if they slipped over the side.
To get to Devil’s Pool you take a boat to
Livingstone Island, from which you have a great
view of the falls, then you do a lot of scrambling
over “unfriendly rocks” as the guides call them,
both atop and under the water. Next you swim
through the river where the guide shows you to
go, navigating more rocks. You need to be able to
swim to make it to the pool, preferably a strong
swimmer (never take a child), and almost as
important is to have a good sense of balance. I
was there the first of September and experienced
deep water and strong currents.
After a lot of scrambling around we reached
the designated spot above the pool. Then it was
time to take the leap of faith: jump into the
water below and trust you will not get swept
over the side.
At that point my mind was void of conscious
thought, which made it easier to make the leap of
faith. There was no need to swim to the edge as
the current pulled me there and I was extremely
grateful to feel the rock barrier as the water
streamed around me. The guide held my legs as
I slowly inched up and craned my neck to look
down into the abyss.
The world was reduced to water and mist,
and incredibly, the ever-present rainbow. I heard
an exuberant voice shout above the roar of the
water, that turned out to be mine, and there were
people across the falls on the Zimbabwe side
staring over.
Everyone in our little group took the leap of
faith but not everyone was up to looking over the
edge. It was an exhilarating experience and one
that will not be repeated. It was not until after
my return home when I was reading about the
occasional deaths that have been reported when
people slipped over the rock barrier at Devil’s
Pool that I felt fear.
In a first-ever helicopter ride I was able to see
and appreciate the entirety of the falls and surrounding topography. From the air you can see
how the falls split the Zambezi River from upper
to lower and the several deep gorges carved into
the earth that reveal remnants of earlier, ancient
falls that were downstream from the current
waterfall. It was in one of those gorges that I

le we swayed through
ng the Zambezi River
My handler shared the
turning from the river
once with a little orphan calf in tow. The owners didn’t want to keep it, but as the elephants
had decided to adopt it there was not much they
could do about it.
African elephants are much larger than Asian
— even from the air their size impresses — and
when you stand dwarfed beside them it is mesmerizing. We had the opportunity to hand-feed them
and witness the intricacies of their deft trunks,
and to observe and enjoy their personalities and
intelligence.
Fascinating encounters continued during my time in Zambia. Walking with the
lions through the bush was an excitingly
surreal experience. After being thoroughly
briefed on how and where to touch them
and how and where not to, I crouched
down behind two unfettered, good-sized
20-month-old lions and ran my hands over
their backs.
When we headed out on a walk through
the bush the ranger said we could hold the
lions’ tails. That had to look comical, but
we did walk and hold onto tails, all the
while being careful to not walk at their
head or in front of them. Lions can never
be fully domesticated, and when these
ones are older they will not be approached
or handled. They will be re-released back
into the wild. It was interesting to learn
that one can be allergic to big cats as well
as the little ones.
Cheetahs are not the powerful, alpha creatures
that lions are, but as I was introduced to them it
was quite clear that they could still rip a person
up if they were threatened. It was a thrilling process to spend time interacting with the cheetahs,
learning about them, scratching their heads and
throats, and being licked in return. It was humorous to discover that cheetahs purr when they are
content and relaxed.
Walking with them through the bush was an
exciting stroll, and when they
ran their speed was absolutely
impressive. They don’t roar
like lions, but when a handler
moved one of the cheetah’s
chow, she let out quite a growl.
Other memorable activities included cruising on
the Zambezi River, driving
through the game park and
seeing a marvelous variety
of animals in their natural habitats, and having a
potentially dangerous exposure to the white rhino
that are protected 24/7 by armed park rangers. I
enjoyed being introduced to the traditional game
of mancala, which requires mathematical strategy
and is played with small river rocks on a carved
board or even in holes dug in the earth. It was
enriching to talk with the locals and other visitors
who shared similar stories in different languages.
Some retrospective travel advice would
include getting a yellow fever vaccination to allow international border crossings (take malaria
prophylaxis as a precautionary measure); carrying U.S. dollars as next to the Zambian kwacha
dollars are the currency of choice; and ensuring
you have two clear passport pages when leaving
the country because strange as it sounds, that is
a requirement.
The meaning of safari has evolved over time
as nowadays most travelers are not going on a
hunting expedition in Africa. Most people are
going on a journey to see and experience the
wonders of creation and the animals in their
natural settings, to photograph, enjoy and to
make memories. For me a safari is the making
of memories, and my safari to Zambia was one
of the most memorable trips I have ever taken.

Spiced Pumpkin
& Coconut Casserole
INGREDIENTS
500g shallots
1.5 kg pumpkin or squash
3 tbsp vegetable or rapeseed oil
1 large fennel bulb, chopped
3 red peppers, deseeded and roughly chopped
6 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tbsp Bart Cajun Seasoning
2 tbsp chopped thyme
1 vegetable stock cube
400ml can coconut milk
400g can chopped tomatoes
100ml single cream
METHOD
1. Place the shallots in a heatproof bowl, cover with boiling water
and leave to stand for 2 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water.
Peel away the skins, leaving the onions whole. Cut the pumpkin or squash in half, then scoop out and discard the seeds.
Cut away the skin and chop the flesh into 2-3cm chunks.
2. Heat 2 tbsp of the oil in a large saucepan or flameproof casserole dish and add the fennel and shallots. Fry gently for 6-8
minutes, stirring frequently, until just beginning to color. Drain
to a plate. Add the peppers to the pan with the remaining oil
and fry gently for 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until softened
and lightly browned. (Make sure they color as this will bring
out their sweetness and flavor.) Return the shallots and fennel
to the pan, stir in the garlic, then add the Cajun seasoning,
pumpkin and thyme.
3. Crumble in the stock cube and add 150ml water, coconut milk
and tomatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to its lowest
setting, cover and cook very gently for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are very tender.
4. Stir in the cream and heat through gently. Leave to stand for 10
minutes before serving.
