Almost there; let's hit the tape running

Missileer staff

By Brig. Gen.
Edward L. Bolton, Jr.
Commander 45th Space Wing

Well, it looks like the finish line
may be in sight for the Operational
Readiness Inspection. We will be
getting their report at an ORI out
brief at 9 a.m. Tuesday morning
at the Base Theatre. I look forward
to seeing all of you there, and I
look forward to what the inspectors
have to report.
I do not know what they will
say, but I would expect they will
tell us we do a pretty good job in
most areas they looked at, and we
have some work to do in a few oth-
ers. Pretty much what we expected
going into this. I never once said
we were "perfect," ... I don't know
a single person or unit that is. I
just said we are very, very good at
what we do, and I trust that will be
validated next week.




But for now, let's stay focused
on the here-and-now. I want all
of us to run right through that
finish-line tape. And run through it
at full speed, while at the same time
keeping a "safety first" mind set at
all times.
And while we're at it, let's stay
focused on our mission at hand.
We currently have a Delta II
STSS DEMO launch scheduled in
the next few days, followed by two
Atlas launches in October and we
will be supporting a Shuttle launch
in November.

A little busy? You might say
Just remember, when you get
to the end of your rope, just reach
down and tie another knot and hold
on. Because there are tens of thou-
sands of troops most of them in
harm's way who are counting on
us to do our job.
And to do it right.
And don't take my word for it.
Air Force Chief of Staff Gen.
Norman Schwartz had this to say.
"Our mission has not changed;
the Air Force remains committed,
first and foremost, to supporting
the joint war fighter by providing
Global Vigilance, Reach and Power,"
he said.
Oh last thing ... Happy
62nd Birthday Air Force. You sure
look good for your age. (There will
be a cake cutting ceremony at
noon today in the Riverside Dining

Remember, we're all leaders in some way

By Col. John Gilmour
45th Contracting Squadron

We are in the midst of a great
test. Be clear about our ongoing
inspection: it's an intensive exami-
nation of our ability to execute all
aspects of our mission and of our
compliance to standards. No one
is exempt: wing, mission partner,
military, civilian and contractor are
all in play. This inspection is an
acid test of leadership, and we're
all leaders.
Like war, where fog and friction
bring uncertainty and unpredict-
ability, our inspection will have
tough moments, moments when
leadership is critical. A college
football coach, Greg Schiano, was
recently asked how he prepares
new players for their first game,
"Just go out there and do your job.
Our whole deal is staying in the
moment. Be in this play right now.

Commander's Corner

They have to keep their emotions
in check." All of us can lead us
through this inspection by practic-
ing these same principles: Focus
on executing our duties perfectly;
do not get ahead of ourselves and
methodically work the instant situ-
ation or challenge; keep emotions in
check, focus sharp and determina-
tion absolute.
The measure of a person is
how they respond to adversity.
Leadership is also defined by how
we deal with hard times. It's simple
to preach staying in the moment,
but far more difficult if that moment
is one of crisis. Two time Ironman
world champion Chrissie Wellington
was recently asked how she over-
comes the adversity of an Ironman
triathlon, "Mental preparation is
one of the main keys to success. All
the physical strength in the world

won't help you if your mind is not
prepared. But I try to stay in the
moment, keep calm, try to relax and
remember hard or difficult times in
training, racing and life in general
when I have pushed through and
come out on top."
Our inspection is far more than a
sporting event; it is infinitely more
serious. However, we can apply
these same lessons to achieve suc-
cess. In the middle of this inspec-
tion, we all need to stay mentally
prepared and strong. Coach your-
self in advance on how you would
respond to an emergency scenario
or an inspector's question.
Rely on your foundation of pro-
fessional training, standards and
experience. Stay relaxed, remember
past successes, and visualize a
successful outcome to the inspec-
We are all leaders ... if we master
the moments, we will succeed.
Go Sharks!

- The Secretary of
the Air Force out-
lined the service's
priorities during a
keynote address at

HMS Vengeance makes her debut

By Mark C. Cleary
45th SW History Office

On Sept. 21, 2000,
Her Majesty's Ship
(HMS) Vengeance
made her debut on
the Eastern Range
with the successful
launch of a Trident II
test missile.
Vengeance is one of
four British Vanguard
class nuclear sub-
marines. All four
were built by Vickers
Shipbuilding and
Engineering Ltd. for
the Royal Navy in
the late 1980s and
Vengeance's sister
ships (because 492-
foot-long submarines
hardly qualify as
'boats' nowadays) are
HMS Vanguard, HMS
Victorious, and HMS
With the exception
of Vigilant, the big
British subs all have
namesakes dating
back several centu-
ries in British naval
Vengeance was the
last of the four new

British submarines to
make their debuts on
the Eastern Range. A
total of nine Trident
II missiles have been
launched by British
subs on the Eastern
Range since May
HMS Vengeance
was the eighth British
fighting ship to carry
that name since 1758.
In her latest incarna-
tion, Vengeance dis-
places 16,000 tons
submerged, and she
carries sixteen Trident
II missile tubes.
Similar in design
to U.S. Ohio class
nuclear submarines,
Vanguard class ves-
sels are somewhat
smaller and lighter,
but they have the
same beam (42 feet)
as the Ohio class
Vengeance was
built at Barrow-in-
Furness, England,
where she was
launched in
September 1998. She
was commissioned in
November 1999.

class submarines in
the 1960s.
Vickers Armstrong
built HMS Resolution
and HMS Repulse in
Barrow-in Furness,

Each of those 425-

carried sixteen Polaris

each displaced 8,400

The four Resolution

class submarines
made their launch
debuts on the Eastern
Range between Feb.
15, 1968 and June 2,
All four served
faithfully until they
were decommissioned
in the 1990s. British
submarine crews
launched a total of 38
Polaris and Chevaline
missiles on the
Eastern Range.
Most of those mis-
siles were launched
in the 1980s. HMS
Repulse launched the
last two Chevalines on
May 10, 1987.

Personnel officials launch new

civilian employment Web site

By Staff Sgt.
Steve Grever
Air Force Personnel
Center Public Affairs

Air Force Personnel
Center officials have
developed a new Air
Force civilian employ-
ment Web site to edu-
cate potential appli-
cants and the general
public about available
civilian jobs, the eligi-
bility and application
process and finding
job opportunities in
various specialties
and career fields.
"Over the next five
years, the Air Force
plans to hire 20,000
more civilians into
civil service," said
Michelle LoweSolis,
Civilian Force
Integration director
at AFPC. "The new
civilian employment
Web site is a proac-
tive approach to arm
job seekers with every
tool they need to con-
fidently apply for Air
Force jobs."
The 45th Space
Wing's top civilian
personnel employee
agrees emphatically.
"The new civilian
employment web
site is more user-
friendly than the
previous one, and
that makes it easier
to market civilian
job opportunities to
more potential appli-
cants," said Mr. Lee

"The new civilian employment web site is more user-friendly than
the previous one, and that makes it easier to market civilian job
opportunities to more potential applicants," said Mr. Lee A. Windschitl,
Civilian Personnel Officer.

A. Windschitl, Civilian
Personnel Officer.
"That's a plus for
those who might be
interested in civilian
employment with the
Air Force. It's also a
plus for selecting offi-
cials by potentially
providing a greater
number of highly
qualified candidates
from which to select
the right person, for
the right job, at the
right time," he added.
Ms. LoweSolis also
said the new site will
help clarify the Air
Force's current civil-
ian hiring process and
provide site visitors
with detailed informa-
tion about available
career fields. The site
also helps explain

federal employment
benefits and educates
visitors on student job
The launch of the
new civilian employ-
ment site also aligns
with AFPC's roll out
of the "Your Future"
employment mar-
keting and recruit-
ing campaign this
"The overall strate-
gy of the 'Your Future'
campaign is to help
market and brand the
Air Force as a premier
civilian employer,"
said Shirlene LeBleu,
the Force Renewal

Division chief at
AFPC's Civilian

"The initiative,
once released Air

fill civilian vacancies
more quickly by

The AbilityOne Program helps thousands
of people who are blind or have other severe
disabilities find employment. The program
coordinates its activities with nonprofit
organizations across the country to employ
these individuals and provide goods and services
to the Federal Government at a fair price.

Sherri Richardson, a contracting officer with the Infrastructure Flight was
recently recognized as an AbilityOne Champion.

A real AbilityOne Champion

By 45th SW
Public Affairs

According to the
definition, a Federal
Procurement AbilityOne
Champion "is a federal
government employee
who fully believes in
the mission of the
AbilityOne Program and
leverages their sphere of
responsibility and influ-
ence to provide employ-
ment opportunities for
people with disabilities."
Ms. Sherri
Richardson, a contract-
ing officer with the
Infrastructure Flight
here at the 45th Space
Wing, obviously fits the
"To a tee," said Mr.
Stephen McLaren, 45th
Contracting Squadron's
deputy commander.
"Sherri always thinks
outside-the-box and
never takes 'no' for an
answer. Her 20-plus
years as an active duty
Airman have served her
well here in the 45th
Contracting Squadron.
She learned how to
accomplish the mission

and never lets anything
get in her way. We are
proud of her and all
our employees; they are
great at what they do."
For Richardson, it's
all about being informed
and doing the right
"I would tell other
contracting officers to
become familiar with the
AbilityOne Program,"
stated recent AbilityOne
Champion, Richardson.
"It's all about staying
educated. Many con-
tracting officers don't
have the knowledge
base about the Program.
When they become
familiar with it, it makes
the process a lot easier."
Initially, she faced
some resistance when
trying to award con-
tracts to AbilityOne.
The concerns, she
said, were that people
with severe disabilities
wouldn't be able to per-
form the job as well as
somebody without a dis-
"The best way to over-
come the resistance is to
show the capabilities of

the AbilityOne agencies
and bring awareness
to the program," said
She has been
involved with the cus-
todial, recycling and
athletic field mainte-
nance contracts and
awarded the grounds
maintenance contract at
Patrick Air Force Base.
To date, 124 jobs for
people with disabilities
have been created by
these contracts. These
four contracts have a
combined annual value
of over $6 million.
"I expect AbilityOne
to continue to have a
very strong presence
here at Patrick," she
said. "We have a large
amount of contracts for
such a small area. Many
of the contracts are very
scope specific and are
exceptionally performed
by AbilityOne contrac-

importantly, giving these

the chance to work is

Man looks on the outward appearance,

but God looks on the Heart

By Chap. (Lt Col.)
John W. Baker

Man looks on the
outward appearance,
but God looks on the
(1 Samuel 16:7)

You have heard it
said that "image is
everything". I guess
this has importance
to you if your per-
spective is governed
by this principle (how
man perceives things).
Samuel makes it clear
that man and God
have a opposite way
of viewing things and
"sizing up" a person.
Is this text saying
that we don't have
the ability to perceive
a little deeper into a
person's heart (his
inner being if you

I believe the pas-
sage is saying that
we are visual and we
are quick to look at
life and people on a
superficial level.
We're struck by
first appearances,
by the external. I've
heard people say, 'It
is what it is.' First
impressions, externals
impressions are what
we gravitate to in our
minds. We focus only
on our visual observa-

If we choose to live

Captain Ready:
During the last ATSO
exercise my buddy
was feeling ill with

muscle craps, a dry
mouth and dizziness. I
thought that she might
have heat exhaustion
but I didn't remember
what to do so I got
her help at the MEDs
tent. She was pretty
sick. What does she
and I need to do dur-
ing the next exercise to
prevent this from hap-
pening again?

Amn. Doppler

Dear Amn. Doppler:
It seems that you did
the right thing after

realizing that there
was something wrong.
The best way to pre-
vent heat exhaustion
is to exercise proper
work rest cycles (sec-
tion 6 page 216 in the
Airman's Manual) and
hydrate properly.
You explained that
after you figured out
that she was probably
experiencing heat
exhaustion that you
didn't know what to
do so you took her to
the medical treatment
tent for professional
help. Hopefully there

won't be a next time,
but if there is and
medical treatment is
not readily available,
open your Airman's
manual to section 5,
pages 182 through
185 dehydration, heat

ate actions and treat-

categories of agents:
Nerve, Blister, Blood
and Choking. Look in
your Airman's Manual
on page 219, of sec-

through 148, section
5 has a very good
quick reference mate-
