Eisenhower USAFE has been entrusted with an incredible responsibility—to defend freedom and democracy. We’ve performed this mission flawlessly for more than 60 years and continue to rise to the occasion. Successful transformation, fostering theater security cooperation, and winning the Global War on Terrorism remain our current challenges and are essential to freedom’s future. Our job is to deliver full-spectrum options to our Combatant Commander. To do this, we must transition from a Cold War defensive posture to an expeditionary force that promotes theaterwide security and stability. Through both transformation and engagement, USAFE strives to build and strengthen existing partnerships with Eastern European and African nations. We seek to improve and bolster the security capabilities of those regions—working side-by-side with air forces from every nation within our AOR to establish friendship and trust. NATO is also transitioning from a common defense force to a security-focused organization and USAFE moves lock-step with it to ensure we have the collective capability to counter emerging threats. In cyberspace, we’re tying together more communication nodes to give U.S. and NATO commanders real-time command and control. We also fly and train with new NATO partners from Romania and Bulgaria. Our NATO Response Force (NRF) commitments will require this interdependence. Together, we maximize our individual strengths to achieve common goals. Our team’s commitment to excellence knows no boundaries. Our medical personnel move our sick and injured from the front lines to safety at record-breaking speed. Our Airmen enable and teach the new Iraqi Air Force. We assist with humanitarian operations in Africa by transporting Rwandan troops to the troubled Darfur region of Sudan. We are “Freedom’s Guardians,” and work to ensure a free way of life for people all over the globe. “Ensuring Freedom’s Future” is more than a catchphrase. It captures everything we do for our country, our allies, and partner nations. Enabling robust security and stability in areas of volatility within the global community has never been more important. Through proactive engagement, we’ll be visible and flexible in order to prevent, deter, and contain emerging threats. Just as Eisenhower’s words challenge, we are up to the task. Our investment today sets the stage for tomorrow’s victory. “Ensuring Freedom’s Future”

It’s I am very happy to for this opportunity to show the U.S. Air Force mission at Lajes Field to you, our Azorean hosts. Simply stated, the mission of the 65th Air Base Wing is to support warplanes and warfighters going to and from the fight. This year we are celebrating 60 years of partnership between Portugal and the United States at Lajes Field. This partnership’s contribution to freedom in our world cannot be overstated. Lajes Field is playing an important role for Portugal and the United States in the Global War on Terrorism. This is a war that our countries must win and Lajes Field is playing a major role in the coming victory. The United States has many bases in different parts of the world, but the relationship we have with the community here is special. I want to personally thank you, the Azorean people, for your hospitality. You have made me and my family feel at home here. The friends we have made through off-base activities, such as judo, our church, and even through shopping, have taken us in and shown us the rich culture of the Azores. I encourage all U.S. personnel to get off-base and get to know the Portuguese people and culture.Estou muito feliz por esta oportunidade de vos mostrar, nossos anfitries aoreanos, a misso da Fora Area dos Estados Unidos na Base das Lajes.

Her leadership and unparalleled work are a fine example of what Airmen should emulate across the entire Air Force. I am very proud of her accomplishments,” he said. Maj. Jill O’Rear Maj. Jill O’Rear Maj. Jill O’Rear Maj. Jill O’Rear Maj. Jill O’RearO meu primeiro voo para fora dos Estados Unidos h 26 anos, com o posto de segundo-tenente, foi para a Base das Lajes. Lembrome de ter sido informado de que os cidados norte-americanos podiam observar as touradas locais, mas que no podamos participar activamente, ou “capear” os touros. Durante anos, sempre que viajava para as Lajes ermos sempre informados sobre esta directiva de segurana posta a circular pelo comando norteamericano da base e dirigida aos norte-americanos. Esta directiva nunca mudou. Refiro-me a isto, porque um jornal local escreveu vrios artigos acerca desta directiva bem instituda. Esses artigos podem dar a impresso de que uma directiva recente e uma ordem caprichosa. Se bem que acho esta situao engraada, quero ter a certeza de que o pessoal norte-americano compreenda que os cidados norte-americanos esto proibidos de participar activamente, ou “capear” os touros. Podemos observar num lugar seguro. Continuo a estimular os nossos cidados para explorar e conhecer esta linda Ilha Terceira, a sua cultura maravilhosa e o seu povo caloroso e amigo.Nota parte do Comandante Commander’s side note My first flight outside the United States 26 years ago as a second lieutenant was to Lajes field. I remember being informed that the U.S. personnel could watch the bullfights, but that we couldn’t actively participate, or “fight” the bulls. Through the years whenever I flew to Lajes Field, we were always informed of this safety directive from the U.S. command for U.S. personnel. This directive has never changed. I mention this because a local newspaper has written several articles about this well established directive. These articles can give the impression that this directive is a recent and capricious mandate. While I find this situation humorous, I want to ensure that the U.S. personnel understand that the U.S. personnel are prohibited from actively participating, or “fighting” the bulls. We can watch from a safe location. I continue to encourage our U.S. personnel to explore and get to know this beautiful island of Terceira, its wonderful culture and its warm and friendly people.

https://info.lajes.af.mil June 9, 2006 • Crossroads • Page 5Lajes in the Fight! NEWS Forwarding a bad e-mail makes you just as guiltyBy Capt. Melissa W By Capt. Melissa W By Capt. Melissa W By Capt. Melissa W By Capt. Melissa W aheibi aheibi aheibi aheibi aheibi 65th ABW Public Affairs E-mail makes communication global and easy. The Air Force takes advantage of the internet’s instant accessibility and provides free access in order to accomplish the mission. Yet fingertip correspondence is too often used for unofficial business and even inappropriate chatter. A recent e-mail caught the attention of wing leadership at several bases. The e-mail originated within the company grade officer group at a state-side base, but was then forwarded and forwarded to thousands of people, most of whom added comments along the way. The initial inappropriate banter escalated into descriptive insults, sexually explicit remarks, and racial comments. Several people who made comments were punished and others who simply forwarded the e-mail chain were rebuked. “When you get an inappropriate email, the best policy is just to delete it,” said Capt. Tony Spratley, 65th Air Base Wing legal office. “Even though you didn’t originate the e-mail, you become just as guilty if you forward it on.” The Air Force has detailed regulations regarding electronic messaging. Air Force Instruction 33-129 says messages are prohibited if they adversely reflect on the Department of Defense or the Air Force such as chain letters or unofficial soliciting. Even more specifically, it is illegal to store, process, display, send, or otherwise transmit offensive or obscene language or material. Offensive material includes, but is not limited to, “hate literature” such as racist literature, materials or symbols; sexually harassing materials, pornography and other sexually explicit materials. Unofficial uses that exceed the authorized purposes may result in adverse administrative or disciplinary action. There have been several cases of inappropriate computer usage here at Lajes with punishments ranging from letters of reprimand to Article 15’s. Arguments have been made regarding first amendment rights and the expression of free speech. Captain Spratley explains that there are restrictions for members of the military. “The Supreme Court has held that the military can place limitations on speech so that the commander can maintain good order and discipline.” For military members, failure to observe AFIs constitute a violation of Article 92 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Civilian employees who fail to observe the same provisions are subject to administrative disciplinary action. Article 92 is failure to obey an order or regulation and holds a maximum punishment of a dishonorable discharge, forfeiture of all pay and allowances and up to two years confinement. Sending inappropriate e-mail may also be punishable under Article 134, service-discrediting behavior. “If you send a sexually explicit e-mail to someone off base, you’re making the Air Force look bad,” said the captain. “People don’t realize that they’re sending this stuff using computer resources and internet services which are all paid for by taxpayer dollars. “They’re breaking the law,” he said. “They don’t know it, but they are.” Article 134 describes ‘indecent’ language of that which is grossly offensive to modesty, decency, or propriety or shocks the moral sense, because of its vulgar, filthy, or disgusting nature, or its tendency to incite lustful thought. Air Force instructions are very specific. AFI 33-119 makes it clear that one cannot cause congestion on the network by such things as the propagation of chain letters, junk e-mail, and broadcasting inappropriate messages to groups or individuals. Many may remember a prohibition on e-mailing pictures shortly after the events of 9/ 11 to prevent congestion on the network. In addition, users are not allowed to access commercial web mail accounts and instant messaging services like Yahoo, AOL, or MSN mail accounts. And most importantly, it is forbidden to send harassing, intimidating, abusive, or offensive material to, or about, others. Although jokes and humorous messages are often a tension reliever at work, “when sent via government e-mail, they lose their humor and become inappropriate,” said Col. Danny Leonard, 65th Air Base Wing vice commander. All government communications systems are subject to monitoring. Members of the Air Force or civilian employees may use a government-provided messaging system for official or authorized use only. Any other use is prohibited. “When you’re using government email, you’re representing the Air Force in some way, shape or form,” said the colonel. “Be careful with e-mail.” “They’re breaking the law. They don’t know it, but they are.” -Capt. Tony Spratley Career Job ReservationsA CJR is a reservation for continued service in the Air Force within a specific Air Force Specialty Code. The Air Force Personnel Center uses the CJR to balance manning in a particular AFSC. Some AFSCs do not have enough CJRs for the amount of first term-Airmen projected to reenlist. These AFSCs are considered “constraint.” Members in a “constraint” AFSC will be placed on a waiting list and will have to compete for those CJRs based on monthly quotas using a rank order process. The purpose of constraint AFSCs is to help balance Air Force requirements between non-stressed and stressed career fields. It is highly encouraged that all members in a “constraint” AFSC, at a minimum, consider looking into retraining possibilities. This is to prevent premature separation if the member does not receive a CJR and has planned on making the Air Force a career. If you have any questions, please call Career Enhancements at 535-6106.

By Ed Lima By Ed Lima By Ed Lima By Ed Lima By Ed Lima Community Relations AdviserQuestion: Question: Question: Question: Question: What procedures do the U.S. citizens stationed at Lajes Field need to follow when issued traffic citations both on and off base?Answer: Answer: Answer: Answer: Answer: American nationals assigned to Lajes who commit a traffic violation off base such as speeding, talking on the cell phone without using a headset device while driving, illegal parking, etc., will receive a traffic citation notification from the local Portuguese Security Police via the U.S. Security Forces Squadron staff translator, Ms. So Santos. Ms. Santos will in turn notify theAsk Ed: Instructions for traffic tickets COMMUNITY American driver to come to the 65th SFS and sign the traffic citation. The violator will have 20 duty days to pay the fine at one of the Portuguese post offices off-base. In the case of a speeding citation, the vehicle’s owner will also be asked to go to the 65th SFS and identify the driver shown in the speeding ticket’s photo. If the driver cannot be positively identified, the vehicle’s owner will always be responsible and penalized by the traffic violation even if he/she was not driving the vehicle at the time. If the traffic violation occurs on base, the citation will be sent to a staff translator at the joint Portuguese/U.S. Security Defense Coordination Center to be translated. The transgressor will then be asked to go the SDCC and sign a document acknowledging he/she was informed of the contents of the violation and the number of points issued to him/ her. The accumulation of eight points during one year period will result in the revocation of driving privileges on base for one month. Individuals who are issued traffic citations and don’t agree with them may refute those through their organization’s chain of command in a letter addressed to the 65th Security Forces’ administration. For more information or assistance on this subject call Ms. So Santos at 535-6177.

Christin Michaud Christin Michaud Christin Michaud Christin Michaud Christin Michaud 65th ABW Public Affairs One type of jellyfish found in the waters off Terceira has a name native to this region. The Portuguese man-ofwar got its name because it looks like a Portuguese battleship with a sail. The species of jellyfish can be harmful to people who come in contact with it as one Lajes member recently found out. Four-year old Donivan, son of Staff Sgt. Joseph Range, 65th Communications Squadron, was stung by a Portuguese man-of-war May 26 at Praia Beach. “This is the first time we have seen a jellyfish or MOW,” Sergeant Range said. “Last year we went to the beach all the time and never saw one.” The man-of-war’s body consists of a gas-filled float, like a bladder, which may be 3 to 12 inches long and extend as much as 6 inches above the water. They are primarily translucent with pink, blue or purple hues. The MOW is made up of four individual types of polyps with tentacles of up to 165 feet in length. “Broken or dead tentacles may still provide a harmful sting,” explained Staff Sgt. Brian Wray, 65th Medical Operations Squadron, public health NCOIC. Sergeant Range was worried when his son was stung. “I’ve heard bad things about the Portuguese man-ofwar,” he said. “I wouldn’t wish this on anyone,” Sergeant Range added. “The Portuguese manof-war sting is supposed to be the most painful out of 2000 species of jellyfish.” Some of the mild symptoms associated with a Portuguese man-of-war sting include itching, stinging, burning, redness, rash, long welt lines and aching pain which can last from minutes to hours, according to public health officials here. In some instance, the symptoms can be more severe, including anaphylactic shock, joint pain, blisters, small white lesions, altered levels of consciousness, respiratory distress and cardiac arrest. The Portuguese man-ofwar is often confused with a jellyfish and may lead to improper treatment of stings, because the poison is different. The first step in treating a sting is to leave the water immediately. The next is to remove the man of war to prevent firing of more capsules. Some of the medical advice was conflicting, including the use of fresh water or vinegar, but one thing all sources had in common to treat a MOW sting is to rinse the sting with salt water. Ice or heat packs can be used to help with the pain as well. Precautions to take when coming in contact with the Portuguese man-of-war include not touching it with bare hands, not rubbing the area with wet sand or a towel, or not using alcohol, or vinegar, according to Sergeant Wray.
