AF focuses fourth round of VERA/VSIP on headquarters reductions
WASHINGTON — In an effort
to lead its force management actions
with voluntary programs, the Air
Force announced a fourth round of
civilian workforce shaping measures
that began Monday.
This follows the recent Air Force
announcement on headquarters organization and staffing reductions.
Those changes are designed to eliminate redundant activities and improve
efficiencies while also satisfying previous secretary of defense direction
to reduce management headquarters
costs and staff levels by 20 percent.
Voluntary early retirement authority and voluntary separation incentive pay will be used to realign and
rebalance the civilian force during the
round IV program. Round IV is largely focused on Headquarters Air Forceassigned civilian employees, primar-
ily located in the national capital
region. Civilians at some major command locations who could be impacted by these changes will also participate. The remaining MAJCOMs will
participate in a subsequent round.
Civilian employees will receive
VERA/VSIP interest surveys from
their local civilian personnel sections
on or about Monday and responses are
due by Aug. 1, unless an earlier date is
established by local CPSs. Applicants
approved for this round of VERA/
VSIP must separate no later than
Sept. 30.

General says goodbye to USAREUR
by Maj. Gen. Richard C. Longo
U.S. Army Europe deputy
I have proudly served the U.S.
Army and the American people
as an Army officer for 34 years.
Within those years I have raised a
wonderful family, met courageous
and inspiring people, and gained
personal and professional fulfillment from this profession.
It is fitting for Dianne and me
to end our time in the Army here
in Wiesbaden. We walked the same
cobblestoned streets 32 years ago
when I was a young lieutenant. We
were married right downtown. We
have been blessed to have spent so
many years in Germany. My children
call it home. I remain friends with
my first Wiesbaden landlord from
1983. I have a signed basketball from
the German National Championship
Team in Bamberg in 2005. And I
celebrated a Germany World Cup
victory in the streets of Heidelberg in
2006. Germany has been a gracious
host to us through the years.
Not every day was enjoyable or
comfortable, but we Soldiers would
not have it any other way. As I
depart, I have a few words to share,
which might be pertinent.
For young leaders, enforce stan-
dards professionally. Seek and
embrace responsibility and challenge. The concept of mission command empowers and compels you to
continually adapt and grow. Know
your commander’s intent and get
after it. Take care of your Soldiers.
For noncommissioned officers,
having these two very cool stars on
my chest was kind of awesome, but
it would never have happened if not
for the gentle and sometimes not so
gentle coaching by the very excellent NCOs I have been honored to
be associated with. I am completely
indebted to you.
For field grade officers, especially those who are doing well, beware
of your ambition. I’ve never rated a
major or lieutenant colonel higher
because he or she worked 20-hour
days. On the contrary, senior leaders are most impressed by those
who demonstrate the highest moral
and ethical standards, balance their
professional and personal lives, and
execute intent with minimal guidance (i.e. “Message to Garcia”),
and those who are team players
who make everyone else around
them better.
For our senior colonels, know
that your character influences
scores of younger leaders. In this
time of turbulence and uncertainty

and Estonian soldiers during a ceremony

the Army for 34 years.
for our more junior officers, they
will be looking at you and asking
themselves, “Is this worth it?” Your
demeanor will answer the question
for them. Know this and conduct
yourself in a manner that you want
your entire team to emulate.
For general officers, I recommend you continue to learn every
day. Maintain a humble servant
leadership style that serves the units
and Soldiers under your command,
not one that lives to serve you. I
have been fortunate in U.S. Army
Europe to experience this level of
leadership. And I am thankful for
the genuine friendships.
To our Army civilian employees, you provide the continuity
we absolutely require during these
times of dynamic change. You have
weathered the sequestration and
living quarters allowance debacles
with honor and grace, and I thank
you for continuing to perform for
the benefit of our Army and our
To our Army’s spouses, continue
to support, understand and challenge your partners as they pursue
this career we all have grown to
love. It is a career that, by definition, is one of sacrifice. And this
necessarily creates hardships on the
families we love. Thank you for
sustaining our families in some
of the most uncertain and difficult
times in our Army’s history.
And to our Soldiers, know that
there are people of all ranks, from
all branches and all backgrounds,
who struggle each day to make the
best decisions for our Army. We
don’t get it right every time, but
we are constantly trying to. You
are “the Army.” You represent us
so well and, without question, you
are the reason I stayed in for these
34 years. I simply chose to spend
the last three decades with people whose default is loyalty, duty,
respect, selfless service, honor,
integrity and courage. I wouldn’t
have had it any other way. It is you
I will miss the most.
76th AS enables diplomacy in the 21st century

Though World War I is
historically called “The
Great War,” its stories, lessons and anniversaries are
often overlooked or forgotten and left in the shadows
of other more “glorious” or
more recent wars.

June 28 was the 100th

Princip’s assassination of
Archduke Ferdinand and
his wife, Duchess Sophie,
in Sarajevo. During the
month that followed the
mentally frail Princip’s dastardly and nearly bungled
act, a Europe-wide diplomatic crisis ensued. Some
say this single assassination
was the catalyst for nearly
a century of war, resulting in the deaths of untold
millions. The assassination

deliver surgical capability for
injured service members who
would be unable to survive a
medical evacuation.
The TCCET-E is designed
to perform in-flight surgery
on patients in critical lifethreatening conditions who
cannot wait or are not close
to an area with an adequate
medical facility.
The training focused on the
FST mission, which requires
the team to be able to set up
and be capable of performing medical operations within a 90 minute timeframe.
However, 160th FST mem-
bers did get to see part of
the TCCET-E capabilities,
particularly, those that allow
them to deal with injuries at
different elevations and air
For many of the participants, this was a first look
at the capabilities of what
their counterparts could do,
and for some U.S. Army
ROTC cadets here as part of
the Nurse Summer Training
Program, this was a first seeing multiple services working
closely together.
“It’s very interesting to see
how they adapt to the environment they are in,” said
Cadet Tamara Lazaruk, U.S.
Army ROTC from Stephen
F. Austin State University.
“They can set this up in the
middle of a forest, and it’s
very interesting to see how
they operate with one another.
Also, I have never worked
in a joint force before my
internship, where I work with
Air Force captains. It’s nice
to see a different side of the
military. They are no different
than Army personnel.”
Lazaruk and the seven
other Army cadets here in the
NSTP, who could potentially
be assigned to an FST unit
one day, were not the only
ones to make the realization
that all military medical per-
sonnel are on the same team,
doing the same job.
“Since we know these
people and work shoulderto-shoulder with them in the
operating room or the wards
we notice that our job is the
same thing; we just call it
something different,” Moreno
said. “Why not train together?
We all get something out of
it; we become better professionals, and we make a much
more integrated force.”

New law
German traffic law now requires one yellow
or orange reflective vest in every car, truck or
bus on German roads. A €15 fine will apply for
violations. The vests must comply with German
Standard DIN EN 471 or European Standard
EN ISO 20471:2013. The vests must be worn
in case of an accident or vehicle break-down
to increase visibility of the people exiting
the vehicle. It is recommended (although not
required) to have one vest available for every
vehicle occupant. Once out of the vehicle,
immediately place the reflective warning triangle as required, get off the road as far as
possible (behind guard rails if present) and wait
there for help to arrive.

Quad riding rules
Before bringing a quad and all-terrain vehicle
to Germany or renting one locally, riders must
be aware of the rules. Riders in Germany must
be in possession of a class B (regular POV)
driver’s license and wear a helmet. Quads
registered in Germany — and that includes
U.S. Army Europe-registered vehicles — may
be driven on all public roads. Riding on the
autobahn is only permissible if the maximum
allowed speed for the vehicle is over 60 kilometers per hour. Roads and trails designated
for agricultural or forestry vehicles only are off
limits for quads unless riders have prior permission from the local forestry office. Off-roading
is prohibited in Germany. As a general rule,
riding a quad is only allowed where it is also
legal to drive a car. There are very few off-road
quad areas in Germany, and none of them are
in the local area. The closest quad area is in

to the hospital, his driver made a wrong
turn down a dead-end street, where the
feebleminded socialist Princip had placed
himself to make the assassination attempt
(a tragic coincidence, as Ferdinand’s route
would not normally have delivered him
to Princip). When the archduke’s driver
discovered his mistake, he put the car
in reverse and accidentally stalled the
engine. Princip then walked up and shot
the archduke and duchess at point blank
range, igniting a century of bloodshed.
July 28, 1914, is widely accepted as the
beginning date of World War I — a war
that resulted in the deaths of 9 million
people and laid the framework for another
disastrous world conflict that would ensue,
historically speaking, mere moments later.
In turn resulting in the death of tens of
millions more as well as bringing the partitioning of Europe, the march of communism and the Cold War, this claimed the
lives of or enslaved millions more either
directly or through proxy wars. Many
historians would say this was all sparked
by a single assassination 100 years ago in
Sarajevo and the failure of diplomacy that
surrounded it before and after.
The 76th Airlift Squadron at Ramstein
looks back
In the tumultuous decades leading up
to Prinicip’s assassination of Ferdinand
and his wife, diplomacy was often accomplished with a hand-penned letter delivered at the speed of a steamship, rail
or horse, rarely face-to-face by national
leaders. At the same time, the murderous
technologies of mustard gas, trench warfare and the machine gun were already
racing past the slow, bureaucratic pace of

and the Central Powers proved to be a

Airmen continue to grow not only
their skill sets and knowledge but

events on their not-so-trivial whiteboard.
“We really do have the sharpest
of the sharp,” Bracher said. “The
Airmen on this staff, no matter their
background, will adapt to the challenges ahead of them. There is no
cy. For Western Europe, then intoxicated
by Victorian-era imperialism, the easiest
apparent way to cut that knot was war.
Slow-speed diplomacy had utterly failed.
One wonders if the near-instantaneous
diplomatic response offered by today’s
U.S. Air Forces in Europe, postured
“Ready, Forward, Now,” might have been
able to cool things down.
Today, we are watching brushfires in
many of the same areas that were troubled
in World War I. Everything old is new
again. As a result of the war, the Russian
empire was dissolved, resulting in chaos
in Eastern Europe, the Balkans, Ukraine
and Crimea. World War I resulted in
the destruction and dissolution of the
Ottoman Empire, which for centuries had
held together key regions in North Africa
and the Middle East, including Iraq.
From Tripoli, Bengazi and Damascus
to Baghdad, many of those formerly
Ottoman Empire-controlled regions were
partitioned and descended into enduring chaos. The artificial borders painted
across a tribal, broken region because of
failed diplomacy haunt the Middle East
and the world to this day.
On this grim anniversary of the outbreak of World War I, many of these
regions still simmer with the tensions
ignited by the failures of diplomacy that
turned this single assassination into a catalyst for global war.
One century later, here at the 76th
Airlift Squadron at Ramstein Air Base, we
have the best aircrews and mission support Airmen in the Air Force. We enable
diplomacy by providing world-class executive airlift to our nation’s leaders in the
same hot spots that simmered 100 years
ago. And today, our Airmen do not make
“wrong turns” down “blind alleys” as did
the ill-fated driver of Ferdinand’s car. The
failed horse-paced diplomacy that contributed to a century of war 100 years ago
is a thing of the past.
Now, present-day diplomacy is enabled
by Ramstein’s 76th Airlift Squadron,
which safely, comfortably and reliably
delivers our nation’s leaders to these troubled regions.
With the 76th AS, diplomacy has a
faster horse. Ready, Forward, Now!

Acting VA secretary outlines
problems, actions taken
WASHINGTON — In testimony before the Senate Committee
on Veterans Affairs July 15,
Acting VA Secretary Sloan D.
Gibson outlined serious problems
regarding access to health care
and key actions the department
has taken to get veterans off waiting lists and into clinics.
“The trust that is the foundation of all we do — the trust
of the veterans we serve, and
the trust of the American people and their elected representatives — has eroded,” Gibson said.
“We have to earn that trust back
through deliberate and decisive
action, and by creating an open
and transparent approach for dealing with our stakeholders to better
serve veterans.”
Gibson discussed six priorities
to begin restoring trust:
• Get veterans off wait-lists
and into clinics.
• Fix systemic scheduling
• Address cultural issues.
• Hold people accountable
where willful misconduct or management negligence are documented.
• Establish regular and ongoing disclosures of information.
• Quantify the resources needed to consistently deliver timely,
high-quality health care.
Gibson said the VA needs
about $17.6 billion in additional
resources to meet current demand
for the remainder of fiscal year
2014 through fiscal year 2017.
The funding, he added, would
address challenges such as clinical staff, space, information technology and the benefits process-
ing necessary to provide timely,
high-quality care and benefits.
“We understand the seriousness of the problems we face,”
Gibson said. “We own them. We
are taking decisive action to begin
to resolve them. We can turn
these challenges into the greatest
opportunity for improvement in
the history of the department.”
Gibson also outlined actions
VA is taking now to address problems with access to VA health
• The
Administration has reached out
to more than 160,000 veterans to
get them off wait-lists and into
clinics. VHA also has made more
than 543,000 referrals for veterans to receive care in the private
sector — 91,000 more than in the
comparable period a year ago.
• VHA facilities are adding
more clinic hours, aggressively
recruiting to fill physician vacancies, deploying mobile medical
units, using temporary staffing
resources, and expanding the use
of private-sector care.
• VA is moving rapidly to augment and improve its existing
scheduling system while simultaneously pursuing the purchase of
a state-of-the-art system.
• Gibson has directed medical
center and network directors to
conduct monthly inspections, in
person, of their clinics to assess
the state of scheduling practices
and to identify any related obstacles to timely care for veterans.
To date, more than 1,100 of these
visits have been conducted.

Capt. Spanky’s off-leash tour
Hey, everybody! I’m here once again to report on my
most recent expedition. Like any other day, I was scratching at my human’s leg for food when she said two of the
most marvelous words in the world: Italy and pizza! Oh
how I’ve dreamt of wrapping my jowls around some delicious pizza straight from Italy.
After almost 10 hours of driving, I couldn’t hold the
excitement in for much longer. Finally coming to a stop
my human announced, “Welcome to Pisa!” Thinking she
was slurring, I expected to jump out and be surrounded by
a town made of pizza and specifically the leaning tower of pizza, but
what I saw was far better.
In front of me stood a beautiful monument towering only 60 meters
in the air with a slight tilt — the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Before entering the tower I learned that the famous bell tower was not purposely
built at a lean but began to drift to its side during construction. It
made me think about what it would have been like making a mistake
people could see 835 years later.
Once we finally walked up to the tower I was excited to
put my fuzzy paw onto that first step, but was halted by the
gate keeper. As he stood there arms crossed, he stated no
one under the age of 8 was allowed entrance. Flashing my
dog tag, he was able to see that in dog years I was more
than old enough to climb the shiny marble steps, so off I
went trotting up leaving nothing behind but my drool.
Once I got to the top vertigo hit hard as I looked down
and felt as though I could touch the people attempting to
“push” the tower over for a photo. Though a magnificent scene, I had
to quickly rush down before I lost that morning’s kibble.
Now on the ground I gazed up at the beautiful masterpiece wondering how I could honor my adventure. Only one thing came to mind.
I lifted my hind leg to match the tower’s tilt and with pride claimed
that small patch of land as my own, then, of course, enjoyed some of
the best salami pizza I have ever had in my life.

7th CSC Soldiers mentor KSF HAZMAT Unit
by Sgt. 1st Class Matthew Chlosta
7th Civil Support Command Public Affairs
PRISTINA, Kosovo — Soldiers from the 7th
Civil Support Command’s 773rd Civil Support
Team helped the Kosovo Security Force’s Civil
Protection Regiment HAZMAT Company build
a nuclear, biological and chemical detection
equipment storage room here and develop
standard operating procedures for the room, July 6
to 19.
The Kosovo HAZMAT team’s current missions
include civil protection and to assist their government’s authorities in response to natural disasters
and emergency incidents.
“From the last training we had from DTRA and
the 773rd CST back in May, we saw that learning
how to properly build a (nuclear, biological and
chemical) detection equipment storage room is necessary for us to learn,” said Sgt. Bajram Peci, leader
decontamination station, 1st Platoon, HAZMAT
Co., CPR, KSF.
Personnel from DTRA, EUCOM and the U.S.
Embassy in Kosovo put together a list of equipment they would need to perform their functional
HAZMAT duties, said Sgt. Eric Song, survey team
member, 773rd CST, 7th CSC.
“We’re working alongside Sergeant Peci and his
team to also set up an NBC detection equipment
storage room for some of the sensitive items that
may be included,” said Staff Sgt. John Bennetts,
survey team chief, 773rd CST, 7th CSC.
In the future, KSF HAZMAT Company Soldiers
will also store CBRN analysis and detection equipment in the new NBC storage room.
“It is necessary, because all of the equipment is expen-
sive and sensitive and has to be secured,” Peci said.
The two NCOs worked for four days to help create the standard operating procedures.
“We’re also writing the procedures on how the
Kosovo military will properly maintain the detection equipment as well as how to store, maintain and
account for it,” Bennetts said. “They’re motivated,
actively engaged, listened and implemented everything we’ve taught them.”
As the NBC equipment storage room progressed
and the procedures were reviewed, the NCOs complimented each other and voiced their excitement
with an eye toward possible future joint CBRN and
HAZMAT training.
“It’s good to be with professional CBRN
Soldiers,” Peci said. “I would like to continue this
professional relationship and training in the future
with the U.S. CBRN unit.”
21st TSC showcases capabilities during Rheinland-Pfalz Tag
Story and photo by
Staff Sgt. Warren W. Wright Jr.
21st Theater Sustainment
Command Public Affairs
NEUWIED, Germany — Soldiers
from the 21st Theater Sustainment
Command showed off their various
capabilities during a Rheinland-Pfalz
state-sponsored fair July 18 to 20 here.
Rheinland-Pfalz Tag is an annual
event that takes place in a different
city in the state each year, bringing
together people from all across the
state in order to showcase the many
various state institutions and organizations within Rheinland-Pfalz.
Representing the 21st TSC this year
were the 5th Quartermaster Theater
Aerial Delivery Company, the 7th
Civil Support Command’s Medical
Support Unit-Europe and 773rd Civil
Support Team, the 30th Medical
Brigade’s 212th Combat Support
Hospital, and the Theater Logistics
Support Center-Europe.
“We’re here supporting our higher
command and conducting community
engagement,” said Capt. Hubert Little,
medical operations officer from the
773rd CST. “We’re letting (the locals)
see what our capabilities are and what
we bring to the table as a partner. It
allows them to see how we’re supporting Germany and our allies.”
For the 21st TSC, working closely
with its German partners is a daily
occurrence, and Rheinland-Pfalz-Tag
provided an excellent opportunity to
emphasize that to the participants.
“One of our main missions is
to work in collaboration with the
Germans and the other nations within
Europe,” said Capt. Jessica Taylor,
physician assistant with the MSU-E.
“We do a lot, and the more we can get
our face out there and show that we’re
helping will help build better relationships within our community.”
For some, the American military in
Germany is a mystery. By participating in the 2014 Rheinland-Pfalz-Tag,
the 21st TSC is able to break down
the barriers of its fences and show the
local nationals everyone is a part of
the same community.
“Sometimes it seems like we sit
behind walls most of the time,” said
Maj. Neil Hurd, nurse and anesthetist
with the 212th CSH. “I’m sure it’s
kind of a mystery to them what we
do and maybe even a little scary that
we’re in their country. By getting out
here we can show them that what we
do is meant to do good.”
Rheinland-Pfalz-Tag gave the various contributing 21st TSC units the
opportunity to highlight their specific
and unique missions to the participants of the annual event.
The displays at the event included
paratroopers from the 5th QM demonstrating how to properly pack a parachute, Soldiers from the 773rd CST
showcasing their decontamination
equipment, medical specialists from
the 212th CSH exhibiting their field
hospital equipment, Soldiers with the
MSU-E with their medical simulator mannequins, and apprentices with
the TLSC-E highlighting some of the
unique training they receive.
“Our capabilities are kind of special,” said Sgt. Edwin Schimmer, parachute rigger from the 5th QM. “We
want to show everyone that there’s
another side to the military where we
can provide humanitarian relief as well
as dropping equipment to fight war.
“We’re not just here to be the

big, bad Army,” Schimmer continued.
“We’re here to show everyone that
we’re also a part of the community.”
Additionally, Soldiers participating
in the event had the opportunity to get
to know their neighbors in the community in which they live.
“It’s important for not only my
Soldiers, but for everyone to get out
here and demonstrate the capabilities between ourselves and our partner
nations, the similarities between our
training and the ways we can help foster
a good environment for our community
here in Germany,” Schimmer said.
Pfc. Molly Parr, also a parachute
rigger from the 5th QM, said she
“Because we live in the community,
it’s important for us to show them that
we’re friendly,” Parr said. “They’ve
been so welcoming to us, and it’s
important that we do the same.”
Sgt. Edwin Schimmer, parachute rigger

a one-minute video, or selfie, talking about their story as an Airman
or about the unique mission they do
every day.
The content of the video is limited
only by imagination.
“Every Airman has a story, and
smartphone technology now allows
those Airmen to share those stories to
a wider audience than ever before,”
said Air Force Chief of Staff Gen.
Mark A. Welsh III at the start of the
Airmen are encouraged to create
their own video for the contest and
to challenge their friends to come up
with the most creative selfie video
to be added to the American Airman
Video Contest.
The competition has reached the
Cheerleading registration
The original video length has doubled, so Airmen, uniformed and civilian, can now send in up to a 60second video of his or her Air Force
story. It’s as simple as taking out their
smartphone, shooting a quick clip
and uploading it to their YouTube
account. Once it’s there, send a link to
[email protected] to enter.
For more details and complete
contest rules, visit http://airforcelive.
“Our Airmen are an amazing communication resource,” Welsh said.
“No one tells the Air Force story like
they do.”

Burg Jazz
Nanstein Castle in Landstuhl will be the
stage for the traditional international Burg Jazz
music festival today and Saturday.
High quality musicians will again fascinate the audience with “keep on swinging
— big band jazz, rock, blues, Dixieland and
soul music,” said Willi Ningelgen from the
Unnerhaus Culture Club, who will sponsor
the17th anniversary jazz festival inside the
atmospheric courtyard of Nanstein Castle.
Organizers expect visitors from throughout
the KMC, Germany and Europe. Car parking
is in easy walking distance to the castle, and
food and beverages will be served at the castle.
The festival is going to kick off at 7 p.m.
today with the first evening top act presenting
one of Europe’s top blues bands, Funky B &
The Kings of Shuffle from Germany performing a fascinating acoustic blues session with
one of Europe’s best Hammond B-3 organ
players, Markus Lauer. He accompanied Phil
Guy and Big Joe Turner on their European
“Their funky blues themes combine phrases
of jazz, funk, soul and rock with fascinating emotions and grooving sound. The audience will be thrilled by their musical talent,”
Ningelgen said.
They will be followed by the big top act of
Friday evening, The Swinging Fireballs from
Bremen, Germany. Their theme is “Come and
Fly with us.” The show will continue with
the finest Las Vegas Casino flair and Kansas
City Swing music, adding Mambo and Brazil
fever to it and the hot-dance elements from
the 1920s and 1930s. They bring back the real
prime time of great American traditional jazz
The first day will come to a close with a performance by the local stars Smitty, Molly and
Corinna in the Castle Battery Tower around
On Saturday, the festival will continue at
6 p.m. with the New Orleans Preachers from
France. Their inspiring marching sound leads
the audience directly into the streets of New
Orleans where the music of the brass-bands
walking along the streets has been part of the
sound of the Mississippi-metropolis since the
beginning of jazz.

ROTC nurses gain experience at LRMC
by Taylor Massey
Landstuhl Regional Medical Center
Public Affairs
or 16 future Army nurse
corps officers, it was an
opportunity to experience
situations in a combat hospital that they could have
only dreamed about throughout nursing school. These top cadets were
selected from numerous colleges in
the United States to participate in
the Nurse Summer Training Program
at Landstuhl Regional Medical
The program is offered to students
before their senior year of nursing
school. It is a one-month internship
for future Army nurses that requires
the cadets to complete 150 hours of
clinical work and prepare a group
project about the Patient Caring Touch
System to present at graduation. This
program allows the cadets to transfer
their academic knowledge to actual
patient treatment.
As each cadet shadows a nurse
from the hospital in many different departments, they are exposed to
clinical skills as well as the duties
and responsibilities of being an Army
nurse corps officer.
Though LRMC is the most desired
location for cadets to select, only two
groups of eight are chosen to participate at the hospital. There are 19
other locations to choose from in the
U.S., but the cadets feel the experience at a combat hospital as well as in
a different country would be the most
significant for the internship. These
cadets stay at the Medical Transient
Detachment on Landstuhl and are
given the opportunity to explore
Germany during their visit.
The first group of eight cadets,
who recently completed the program, worked throughout the hospital wards with all types of nurses. In
addition to working at the hospital,
the cadets experienced in-bound and
out-bound flights at the Contingency
Aeromedical Staging Facility on
Ramstein where they worked first
hand receiving service members from
downrange and preparing them for
their journey back home. Four of the
cadets, who participated in the emergency room, labor and delivery, intensive care unit, and pediatric clinic,
spoke about their experience during
their one-month adventure at LRMC.
Ashley Ross, a senior at Radford
University in Virginia, was assigned
to the ER at LRMC. Ross said she
began her nursing career because the
personal relationship she has with
God influenced her to pursue her
dream of helping people. She also has
a full-ride scholarship for nursing and
intends to produce the highest quality
performance throughout her schooling.
Ross said her experience at LRMC
is one she would not trade for the
world. As she worked alongside her
instructor, she was able to accomplish a lot of interactive practice with
IVs (which is something she had
not yet done) and patient evaluations. She said she really enjoyed the
fact the staff was constantly challenging her to be her best self, even in
situations when she was slightly
Ross said this opportunity has better prepared her for a career as an
Army nurse because she was able to
experience the combination of the
military and medical worlds, taking
in all the techniques, strategies and
skills of patient care and treatment.
She said a memorable experience she
will not forget is the work she was
able to do with the team at the CASF
during an out-bound mission to send
wounded warriors back to their families.
Chelsea Farquhar, a senior at
Northern Michigan University, was
assigned to the labor and delivery
ward. Farquhar said she has been
a nursing major since her freshman
year of college, as she has always had
a passion for the nursing field. She
said an officer at her college orientation influenced her decision toward
a medical military career, where she
will have more options with getting
involved in emergency and critical
patient care.
Farquhar said the most important
aspect of her experience at LRMC
has been the opportunity to interact
with every branch of the military and
observe everyone working together,
along with the chance to hear the different experiences, opinions and influences of the combined medical and
military personnel.
Farquhar said she has assisted during births, something she would not
have the opportunity to do during
nursing school.
Farquhar also said being in
Germany has been extremely valuable to her experience because she
has been able to immerse herself in
the culture of another country and
incorporate that knowledge into her
patient care.
Samantha Wilhelm, a junior at the
University of Memphis, was assigned
to the ICU. Wilhelm comes from a
long line of military personnel and
described her family as her main
influence when getting into the military medical field.
Wilhelm said her experience at
LRMC has been incredible and somewhat indescribable. She has participated in a lot of hands-on work with
critical care patients and will take
home knowledge of clinical skills
she exercised during the program and
apply them during her duration of
nursing school.
Wilhelm, with the supervision of
her preceptor, was given the opportunity to continuously work hands
on and practice skills such as implementing IVs and performing critical
assessments. She said she noticed an
immense difference between military
and civilian hospitals in the aspect
of all the staff knowing their roles,
but still being able to produce mass
amounts of information to the cadets
in different areas.
Wilhelm said the most valuable
and memorable part of this program
has been the time she has gotten to
work with the wounded warriors and
their families. She said she is thankful
she was given the chance to extend
her experience and work with such a
knowledgeable and encouraging staff.
Anna Lamb, a
senior at Grand
Canyon University,
was assigned to the
pediatric clinic. She
said she has always
had a passion to serve
and admires the intimacy a nurse shares
with their patients. She
said the CNA course
she was involved in
solidified her desire to enter the nursing field. Coming from a long military
family line and being impressed from
experiences of former ROTC nurses, Lamb realized taking her passion
of medicine and combining it with a
career in the military was her goal.
Lamb described LRMC as a teaching hospital, where the staff was
always willing to help and share their
own experiences. This environment
taught her there are never too many
questions and there is always room
to learn. Lamb said she was challenged with adjusting to the schedule of a nurse and found that every
person in the hospital setting has
their own way of doing things, and
it is important to be flexible in order
to accommodate. She said she has
most enjoyed the experience of inserting herself in the mixture of military and medicine because she does
not receive that experience at school.
During her time in the pediatric clinic,
she learned how to care for small children, as she describes they are “new
to the world of medicine” and have
to be cared for in a different manner
than adult patients. She said the most
memorable experience for her in
Germany was the work she did with
the CASF during an outbound flight
to send service members back to the
Heather Schniepp, preceptor of the
pediatrics department, said NSTP is
such a valuable experience for the
cadets because it is a very rare opportunity to receive hands-on experience
during nursing school. She said they
are exposed to different types of nursing during their time at LRMC and
must use different nursing skills and
strategies throughout the process. She
describes the difficulty nursing students have to gain a wide variety of
experience, but these cadets are able
to do so being in Germany. Schniepp
said the cadets have great skills and
knowledge coming in, but are able
to put them to use working at a
hospital, especially at one that is
mixed with both military and civilian
LRMC is the largest American hospital outside of the U.S. and has recently been verified as a Level III Trauma
Center by the American College of
Surgeons. LRMC provides medical
care for more than 200,000 U.S. military personnel and their families within the European region. LRMC is also
the evacuation and treatment facility
for all injured U.S. service members
and civilians injured downrange, as
well as service members from neighboring coalition forces.

How your digital signature will stop PII leaks
by 1st Lt. Meredith Hein
24th Air Force Public Affairs
of 24th Air Force are refurbishing an
old email tool to help Air Force users
reduce breaches of personally identifiable information, or PII.
The Digital Signature Enforcement
Tool, or DSET, which currently
prompts users to provide a digital
signature when an email contains
an active hyperlink or attachment,
is being reconfigured to scan emails
and attachments for PII. DSET was
first introduced to Microsoft Outlook
in 2009 by the Air Force Life Cycle
Management Center.
“DSET was originally designed to
mitigate risk from socially-engineered
email or phishing attacks. Now, it
provides some protection of messages
transmitting PII,” said Alonzo Pugh, a
cyberbusiness system analyst for 24th
AF. “The tool provides awareness for
users of risks before the email leaves
the workstation, giving users the
chance to correct the identified risk.”
PII includes items such as an individual’s social security number, driver’s license information and financial
information. Breaches occur when this
information is inadvertently released.
User awareness is one of the biggest
issues associated with PII breaches,
Pugh said.
“When users release PII that is not
protected, that puts information at risk
for being intercepted by adversaries,”
he said. “These adversaries can then
use that information to target users to
gain access to the network. Air Force
network users must do their due diligence when sending an email containing PII. They need to make sure the
information is protected.”
DSET capability should encourage users to be more involved in the
process of preventing PII breaches,
Pugh said. “The user is afforded the
ability to take action in checking their
emails to make sure they are not inadvertently releasing PII, and given the
Flag football sign-ups
opportunity to protect it. DSET makes
users more aware that they need to
double check their emails and ensure
that they are in accordance with policy; the responsibility for preventing
breaches ultimately falls on them.”
The tool itself is straightforward
to use, Pugh said, and will give users
simple prompts to follow in sending
emails. In addition, there is a function allowing information which was
falsely identified as PII to still be sent.
“While our software solution will
support the Air Force’s efforts to
reduce PII breaches, it is still important for personnel to be aware and
vigilant with their handling of documents containing PII,” said Col. Eric
Oliver, the 24th Air Force director of
cyber systems.
The tool’s new usage is still in its
initial stage, focusing on social security numbers. Developers hope that
DSET will ultimately be able to scan
for a variety of PII to prevent future
“It is imperative that we protect
one another as we move each Air
Force mission forward,” said Maj.
Gen. J. Kevin McLaughlin, the 24th
Air Force commander. “Avoiding the
release of PII is part of being a good
wingman, but it is also part of protecting the network and accomplishing
the Air Force mission.”
In preparation for the release of
DSET, you can access training for
the new tool using the following link:
Additional training on how
to encrypt Microsoft Office documents can be accessed at www.24af.
Users have multiple tools at their
disposal to protect PII if encrypting
email is not feasible, but if electronic
transmission of sensitive PII is operationally required, users can leverage approved Department of Defense
file exchange services at: https://safe.
