Just as parents are concerned about the health and safety of their children, leaders within the Air Force care about the well-being of Airmen. Negligence with personal health not only effects individuals, but also puts everyone around them at risk. One of the key factors in preventing the spread of viruses or infections is education. The 86th Aerospace Medicine Squadron has a number of sections geared to keeping Ramstein healthy, including an epidemiology office.

The Air Force functions like a complex machine made up of interlocking gears that keep the mission rolling. Every wheel is important with its specific function, but when one gear malfunctions, the whole mechanism suffers. The 86th Maintenance Group is an element of Ramstein that keeps the mission pushing forward.

When moving from one duty station to another, buying or selling a vehicle can become a large stressor. It can be tough finding transportation to house hunt, run errands or travel during the transition.

Senior Airman Nicole Keim, 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs photojournalist, and a skydiver jump out of an airplane over Wallerfangen, Germany, Aug. 13, 2016. The purpose of the trip was to improve the spiritual fitness of the Airmen by allowing them to take a leap of faith. (Courtesy photo) Airmen take a leap of faith
Ascending into the unknown, Airmen look out the windows of a tiny propeller aircraft. The structures on the ground get smaller, and the sound of the plane is the only noise inside the small ‘seatless’ cabin.

The Flamingo Wings: 435th AGOW, 435th AEW
When I arrived at Ramstein, I asked myself and I have been asked a number of times by others since, “Why a pink flamingo?” What does a pink flamingo have to do with the 435th Air Ground Operations Wing and the 435th Air Expeditionary Wing?

Engines roared to life as the hum of the ‘birds’ flooded the tarmac, and three C-130J Super Hercules lined up to take flight during another annual training mission.  Although this forward training deployment was routine, many hours were spent planning to ensure things flowed smoothly.

A student of the Ramstein Aquatic Center Lifeguard Course performs unconscious airway techniques on an infant dummy July 11, 2016, at Ramstein Air Base, Germany. The students were trained what to do if there’s a drowning versus non-drowning victim, if it’s an infant rather than an adult or the different roles depending on how many rescuers are responding.  (U.S. Air Force photo/Airman 1st Class Tryphena Mayhugh) Ramstein Lifeguard Course: when saving lives floats your boat
During the hot days of summer, many Airmen and their families may find themselves heading to the pool or beach to escape the heat and relax. While enjoying the water, they may not think of those who watch over them and keep them safe: the lifeguards. Many of them may also not realize that becoming a lifeguard themselves is possible through the Ramstein Aquatic Center.

Rogo, 86th Security Forces Squadron military working dog in training, attacks a “perpetrator” July 12, 2016, at Ramstein Air Base, Germany. Rogo underwent extensive basic training at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas and arrived at Ramstein on June 29. Rogo has a 90-day trial period before he will officially be a MWD. (U.S. Air Force photo/Airman 1st Class Tryphena Mayhugh). 86th SFS welcomes new MWD
Almost all Airmen can remember their first few months in the Air Force; going through the Military Entrance Processing Station, entering Basic Military Training, moving on to technical school and finally making it to their first duty station. But not all who put down their life to serve come on two legs, such as military working dogs. Many may not realize the journey an MWD travels to become one, and how it can parallel to their own journey into the Air Force. The 86th Security Forces Squadron welcomed a new MWD to their ranks on June 29, a 2-year-old German Shephard named Rogo. He is fresh out of training from the 321st Training Squadron at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas; the gateway to the Air Force for Airmen and MWDs.
