It happens at least once every year but can occur up to three times in the same year. The fear of Friday the 13th is called friggatriskaidekaphobia or paraskevidekatriaphobia For a month to have a Friday the 13th, the month must begin on a Sunday. Friday the 13th is not universally seen as a day of misery. For example, in Italy, Friday the 17th is considered to be a day that brings bad luck. In fact, the number 13 is thought to be a lucky number. (From www.timeanddate.com) See BIRTH, page 7 By Capt. Joseph Legros 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team Epi-pen shortage in US could aect you LANDSTUHL, Germany Due to a shortage of epinephrine autoinjectors (EpiPen, EpiPen Jr. and generic versions) through out the United States, Regional Health Command Europe has authorized a six-month extension to the pharmacy label expiration date for children attending Child and Youth Services programs or Department of Defense Educa tion Activity schools in Europe. We have a special agreement with CYS and DODEA regard ing this pharmacy label expiration ex tension to meet their requirements for children's prescriptions, said Matthew Nguyen, formulary manager, RHCE. Nguyen emphasized that this extension does not apply if the manufacturer's expi ration date has passed. Children with epinephrine autoinjec tors past the manufacturer expiration date will need to revisit their provider for a new prescription. For epinephrine autoinjectors kept outside a CYS or DODEA facility and stored in room temperature conditions, tients may retain and use the medica tion until the manufacturer's expira tion date, Nguyen said. Because there is a shortage, the pharmacy team recommends patients check the expiration date and plan ahead. Patients should begin trying to get a replacement about three months before expiration to allow for possible delays. Army military treatment facilities must prescribe only FDA-approved medications and are not permitted to purchase European medications, Nguyen said. If you have questions regarding your child's EpiPen, please contact your Army Military Treatment Facility pharmacy or the child's primary care manager. ( RHCE PAO) Birth registration process in Italy has many steps 'Sky Soldier' saves drowning man VICENZA It was a beautiful June day in Contr Pria. Families enjoyed a picnic together, and the refreshing water served as a welcome refuge from the heat and humidity of the last weekend leading into summer. It was Fathers Day in America, and cer with 173rd Airborne Brigade Com bat Team here, decided to take advanta ge of the weather to bring his grandsons to a popular nearby swimming hole. The tiny hamlet of Contr Pria is made up of a few houses that appear lost in the foothills of the Dolomite Mountains. The half-dozen houses follow the cour se of the Astico, a small river created by the melting snow of the mountains that deep chasms with frigid still waters that invite adventure seekers escaping the summer heat. When Hall and his family arrived ear ly on June 17, they were surprisingly greeted by Lt. Col. Jim Keirsey, com mander of 2nd Battalion, 503rd Infan try Regiment, and his family, who were picnicking and swimming with some friends in the remote swimming area. They introduced their children to each other who then played in the beach areas together. We noticed a few people jumping med a small canyon along the stream, said Halls wife, Laura. Jumpers would often pause for scuba divers in wet sui ts exploring the glacial waters that feed into the chasm below. This peaceful scene completely chan ged in the blink of an eye.

CID: Beware of virtual kidnapping scam QUANTICO, Va. The U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Commands Computer Crime Investigative Unit is warning the Army community to be on the lookout for the virtual kidnapping hoax. The scam occurs when an unsuspect ing person receives a call and the caller immediately says, Ive kidnapped your kid. Send money or the kid dies, or some similar version of the call. Although this is not a new scam, it recently happened to a member of the to be a scam because the victim called the child was safe in class. Often, victims of the virtual kidnap ping fraud are chosen randomly. The person who answers the telephone is the victim, and no one has been kidnapped, nals target a block of telephone numbers sequential numbers until the call is an swered by someone they can shock into believing that their child has been kid napped. The callers approach is force ful, well scripted and can be very con vincing. When the kidnapper uses the childs name, it will cause the victim to panic and become more compliant. But keep in mind that the caller may have found the childs name on social media or the parent might have inadvertently told the caller the childs name during the course of the call. If you receive a phone call from some one demanding ransom for an alleged kidnap victim, consider the following: In most cases, the best course of action is to hang up the phone. or acknowledge your loved ones name. Try to slow the interaction. Request to speak with your family member direct ly by saying, How do I know my loved one is okay? Ask questions only the alleged kidnap victim would know, such as the name of a pet. Avoid sharing information about yourself or your family. Attempt to contact the kidnapped vic tim via phone, text, or social media, and request they call back from their own cell phone. To buy time, repeat the callers requests and tell them you are writing down the demand or tell the caller you need time to get things moving. If you suspect a real kidnapping is tak ing place, immediately contact the near enforcement agency. Remember that the fraudster relies on shock, speed and fear. Criminals know they have a small window of opportuni ty to extract a ransom before the victim realizes the scam or authorities become For more information about computer security, other computer-related scams and to review previous cyber-crime alert ers visit the Army CID website at http:// www.cid.army.mil/cciu-advisories.html.

This year, marine creatures like dolphins, corals and cation Bible School, whose theme was Shipwrecked: Rescued by Jesus. Almost 140 children in the Vicenza Military commu Elementary/Middle School multipurpose room June 2529 thanks to the support of some 90 volunteers, includ ing Soldiers, parents and teens. Children from 5 to 11 years old, were divided into crews and they created crafts, learned songs and inter acted with other participants throughout several stations such as Imagination Station; Bible Discovery; Tropical Treats; KidVid Cinema and ShipRec Games. Children started the morning with Castaway Sing and Play and then rotated through stations, where the message was the same, Jesus Rescues, said Julie Hicks, Protestant Religious Education coordinator. Hicks explained she began planning for this year's VBS in January alongside Paola Addison, Catholic Religious Education coordinator. We began meeting regularly with volunteers in Feb ruary. Its been wonderful to work with so many talent ed people willing to give this generously of their time to one of our VBS volunteers. None of this would have been possible without them. Were also thankful to the Red Cross for supplying us with volunteers and for all the Soldiers and our chaplains who assisted with VBS, Hicks continued. According to Addison, who was fully involved as a ticipants were all positive. Just after daily mass, a mom thanked me for the amazing time her son had during VBS week. She said he continues to ask her when he can go again, said Ad dison. Volunteers were happy to hear that children got excit ed about the program after going into the multipurpose area and seeing all the decorations. Last but not least, volunteers also planned snacks Three brothers ranging in age from 4 to 8 years old were really enthusiastic. Nolan Lockerbie, 8, really liked Tropical Treats, while his 6-year-old brother William said, I liked when we made the boats and wound them up and they paddled in the water. Logan, the youngest brother, 4, said he loved all the songs. When asked during closing celebration, Lilyana Sampson, 5, said, My favorite thing at VBS was Bi ble Discovery when we talked about The Lost Coin be them. My favorite song was when we sang My Light House. According to U.S. Army Garrison Italy Chaplain (Maj.) Mark McCorkle, Family Life Chaplain, RSO, this years VBS program touched many of the families in the Vicenza Military Community, and they said that VBS is such a blessing. The families have also said that their children had the opportunity to learn about God and really enjoy the wor ship time of singing and arm movements to the songs. Patricia Shelton is the creative person who turned our area into a sea of beauty, Veramente Bello . Our heart's desire is to please God and we all, as a community, worked to achieve a wonderful week for our young children that has created memories that will last a lifetime, he added. McCorkle also mentioned Chaplain Steven Smith and his wife Susan who showed great leadership with this years VBS. The training and teaching portions that were so suc cessful are directly connected to them leading and tak ing on responsibilities that were above and beyond the expectations, he said. Amongst the volunteers, some were also participants parents. One of them was U.S. Army Africa Sgt. 1st Class Ha wathar Jones, who works in DCSENG (the engineer cell of USARAF). I had two children participating in this years pro gram. My daughter Akeyla is a teen helper for the tod dlers, and my son A'Jay was a participant in VBS, he said. Jones has been here three years and is a deacon in the Gospel service. I volunteer for wherever they need me to be. I am usually one of the behind-the-scenes persons who helps with the audio and vision system, making sure every thing is working correctly. At the Gospel service, Chap lain Smith, my pastor, asked me to play a role with him and I said okay. He said to play the role of Jesus as he narrates the story of Jesus praying in the Olive Grove, he explained. Jones added that it was a humbling experience to see how children react to you when you play in certain roles. Seeing the smiles on their faces as they learn about Christ is so heartwarming. Hearing them just saying Jesus, Jesus as I walk by. This will be something that they will remember for a long time, he added. By tradition, at the end of each day, all participants and volunteers gathered at the multipurpose room for the Grand Finale. We are so thankful for all of the people who sacri community through VBS, said Nicole Stewart, volun teer and parent. I had three children participate and one volunteer this summer and it was such a blessing to listen to them singing the songs and sharing the Bible verses they were learning. We cant wait for next years VBS.
