CMSAF Roy visited with members of the

Center, chatted with some CCAFS firemen, had
lunch at the award-winning Riverside Dining
Facility with several Airmen, attended a base
housing meeting and hosted an "Enlisted Call"
at the Base Theatre.
"I just visited with five tactical air control
party Airmen last week who were deploying to
Iraq to support an Army unit. Those war fight-
ers will use satellites like the ones launched
from the Cape last Monday morning to call in
airstrikes to help us win the fight," said CMSAF
Roy.
"Although Florida is a long way from the
front lines, without the 45th Space Wing's
mission support, our war fighters, along with
our joint and coalition partners, would be
severely hampered in their mission," he said.

On your mark, get set, exercise!


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

Well, all the coaching, cajol-
ing, teaching, preparing, prodding
and practicing for the Operational
Readiness Inspection will now be
put to the test, again, beginning
next week.
It's here. Game on.
We have talked with the AFSPC
Inspection Team and they have
made it clear to us that "telling"
them what you do or "showing"
them a checklist of things we do
to execute our mission will not be
good enough. We will not pass go.
We will not collect $200 without
showing them we can walk the
talk.
So, expect probing questions.
Expect challenging scenarios. And
more importantly, be ready and
willing to "demonstrate" your abili-
ties to do your mission, whether
it's being evaluated in a day-to-day


inspection, or during your actions
in response to some kind of unex-
pected scenario we are sure to
encounter over the next few weeks.
In any event, I am very confident
we will clear the high bar as long
as we remember to work together
as a team.
Former major league baseball
manager Casey Stengel hit one out
of the park when he said "finding
good baseball players is the easy
part. Getting them to play as a team
is the tough part."
That's just a simple truth.
And from Day 1, when I took
command of this Wing, I have never

The great basketball player
Michael Jordan once said, "Talent
wins games, but teamwork and
intelligence wins championships."
As we prepare for our upcoming
inspection, I believe Jordan's quote
rings true for our mission areas.
Only through teamwork will we
succeed in executing all aspects
of our mission, and only through
teamwork will we excel during our
upcoming inspection. But how do
we become a great team?
First, each of us must know the
playbook. Within each career field,
there are numerous instructions,
laws, and procedures that guide
our execution. To truly do our
jobs efficiently and effectively, we
must know the rules and execute
to those standards. There simply


Commander's Corner


are no excuses for not knowing the
plays in our playbook. We train, we
study, and we practice. Once we're
ready, when we have the plays
down pat, we execute.
Each player on our team has
assigned routes to execute. While
we function together as a team, we
rely on each individual member to
execute his or her job the way they
have been trained.
Individual accountability, atten-
tion to detail, and the drive to
do your job to the best of your
ability will help ensure our plays
develop as planned: rockets launch
successfully, troops deploy, and
our base population receives the
support we need to execute our
missions.
No matter how sharply we


From


the


top


playbook
execute, we run the risk of a bro-
ken play.
As a result, we must be pre-
pared to react to the unexpected.
We work in a dynamic and dan-
gerous environment, and through
our training we learn how to react
if something goes differently than
planned.
During these times, we must
turn back to our training to deter-
mine the best method to react.
Well rehearsed contingency plans,
coordinated procedures, clear com-
munications, and a take control
attitude will enable you to react cor-
rectly and turn broken plays into
positive gains.
As we press through this time
of inspection preparations and
bustling operations tempo, I'm
proud to be a part of the 45th SW
team. I look forward to meeting the
challenges ahead of us together.
To teamwork!


seen a group of people watch each
others' backs the way you do. Chief
Master Sgt. of the Air Force James
Roy said the exact same thing dur-
ing his visit here last week. It's that
easy to see. Believe me.
Let's face it, the next month or
so will be a very busy, very stress-
ful time for many of us. That being
said, I need you to "take care of
you."
Don't let the stress eat at you
because if you don't bring your "A-
Game" we can't bring ours. Please
get the proper rest. Eat right.
Exercise.
Air Force Chief of Staff Gen.
Norton A. Schwartz has declared
an "All in" philosophy and mentality
for the entire Air Force.
"Precision and reliability is the
standard regardless ofjob, or grade,
or specialty. Everyone contributes -
every single person," Gen. Schwartz
said.
That's just the simple truth too.
Thanks.

Collaboration key to success



in cyber operations

8/25/2009
- MAXWELL AIR
FORCE BASE, Ala.
(AFNS) The Air
Force Information
Technology Confer-
ence opened Aug. 24
in Montgomery, Ala.,
with keynote address-
es from the vice
chairman of the Joint
Chiefs, the Air Force
chief of staff and the
CEO of McAfee, Inc.
Collaboration
emerged as a key
theme in the opening
day of the conference,
which is now in its
26th year.
The modern warf-
ighter has found "tre-
mendous advantages
in networking organi-
zations," Gen. James
Cartwright, vice
chairman of the Joint
Chiefs, told attendees,
saying that the con-
ference is a valuable
tool in learning how to
leverage information
technology advantag-
es, he said.
The event boasts
more than 200 ven-
dors, 120 seminars
and 5,800 registered
attendees.
"My hat is off to
you in the informa-
tion technology com-
munity," Gen. Norton


Schwartz, Air Force
chief of staff, said in
his address. "You are
key to how we concen-
trate our efforts and
collaborate."
The IT backbone
allows interconnectiv-
ity between advanced
weapon and command
and control systems,
the general noted,
maximizing effective-
ness in air, space and
cyberspace opera-
tions.
Professionals from
across the govern-
ment and private sec-
tors will gather for
the next three days to
collaborate and share
on the latest technol-
ogy and its benefits
for the Air Force and
the Department of
Defense as a whole.
"We're proud of
the relationship we
have with the Air
Force," said Mr. David
DeWalt, McAfee CEO
and a keynote speak-
er. "We need to devel-
op stronger threat
intelligence. This rela-
tionship provides a
great opportunity."
Collaboration was
also on the mind of
U.S. Representative
Bobby Bright, the
congressional repre-
sentative from the 2nd
District in Alabama,
which includes the
city of Montgomery.


"This is the ideal
event to mesh small
business and our
military community
together," said Mr.
Bright, who serves
on the House Armed
Services Committee.
Mr. Bright wel-
comed the group to
Alabama. The con-
gressman, as well as
Mr. John Caporal,
deputy director of
the Air Force's Small
Business Programs,
will speak to the small
business forums tak-
ing place later in the
week.
Conference forums
and events support
the conference theme,
"The Warfighter's
Edge in Battlespace,"
highlighting how
information technol-
ogy contributes to the
joint fight.
The rapid evolution
of the Air Force and
the Department of
Defense necessitates
focus on three tenets,
according to Richard
Lombardi, the 554th
Electronic Systems
Wing director. These
are rapid acquisi-
tion, operability at the
core and the ability to
fight through a cyber
attack.
Winning, both on
the battlefield and in
cyberspace, requires
the leveraging of

a variety of cyber
systems, General
Cartwright said.
"In the art of war,
where does (informa-
tion technology) fit?"
the nation's second
highest ranking mili-
tary officer asked.
And risk, though
inevitable, cannot
stop progress toward
applying technology
on the battlefield.
"Can we afford to
step aside because
there might be risk?"


the general asked.
"The answer is no."
The Department
of Defense, in col-
laboration with pri-
vate industry, must
learn to find a balance
between the vulner-
abilities and advan-
tages of technology,
he said.
Conference attend-
ees will have the
opportunity to hear
other keynote speak-
ers on a variety of
topics throughout the


week, including Lt.
Gen. William Lord,
chief of warfighting
integration and chief
information officer for
the Air Force, and Lt.
Gen. Carroll Pollett,
director of the Defense
Information System
Agency and com-
mander, Joint Task

I History Highlights


The Cape's Last DSCS III Mission


By Mark C. Cleary
45th SW History Office

On August 29,
2003, a Delta IV
carried the final
Defense Satellite
Communications
System (DSCS) III
spacecraft into orbit
from Cape Canaveral.
Rising from
Complex 37B on the
evening of the 29th,
the Delta IV injected
its payload into the
proper transfer orbit
42 minutes later. The
launch was the end of
an era, and not just
for the DSCS III.
The first DSCS III
satellite had been
launched into space
in October 1982,
but the DSCS (pro-
nounced "discus")
saga really began 18
years earlier.
Way back in
October 1964,
the Defense
Communications
Agency contracted
Philco-Ford to design,
build and deliver
the Initial Defense
Communications
Satellite Program
(IDCSP) satellites and
their dispensers.
Each of the first-
generation satel-
lites weighed only
99 pounds, so the
spacecraft could be
launched in clusters
of four, seven or eight
satellites at a time.
They were designed
to relay teletype mes-
sages, voice commu-
nications, photos and

During the late 1960s,
the IDCSP satellites
provided the military
with a lot of 'hands
on' experience in the
application of
spacecraft technology
and spaceflight
techniques.

digital data from orbit
- about 21,000 miles
above Earth's surface.
The first cluster of
seven IDCSP satel-
lites was launched
from Cape Canaveral
aboard a Titan IIIC on
June 16, 1966.
Those satellites
were orbited success-
fully, but a second
Titan IIIC mission
failed on August 26,
1966 about 79 sec-
onds after lift-off.
Other Titan IIICs
deployed the rest
of the first genera-
tion satellites from


the Cape in January
1967, July 1967 and
June 1968.
During the late
1960s, the IDCSP
satellites provided the
military with a lot of
'hands on' experience
in the application of
spacecraft technology
and spaceflight tech-
niques.
The next generation
(DSCS II) spacecraft
were considerably
larger satellites, and
they offered substan-
tial improvements
in communications
capacity and trans-
mission strength.
Each cylindrical DSCS
II was nine feet wide
and six feet high. It
weighed about 1,350
pounds, and its solar
array was 13 feet wide
on-orbit. The prime
contractor, TRW,
delivered 16 DSCS
IIs.
The first two DSCS
II spacecraft were
orbited in November
1971. They had an
operational life expec-
tancy of four years,
but that lifespan rose
to 10 years for later
spacecraft in the
series.
A constellation of
four DSCS IIs was
operational by mid-
December 1978, and
DSCS II missions
continued long after
the new DSCS IIIs
made their debut in
1982.
The last DSCS II
accompanied a DSCS
III spacecraft into


space in 1989.
A total of 14 DSCS
III spacecraft were
procured from the
original contractor
(General Electric)
and the division's
later owners,
Martin Marietta and
Lockheed Martin.
Though about
the same size as a
DSCS II, each DSCS
III weighed approxi-
mately 2,700 pounds
and carried six super
high frequency tran-
sponders for secure
voice and high data
rate communications.
Its 38-foot-wide solar
array provided greater
power.
The Air Force/
Lockheed Martin team
completed their on-
orbit checkout of the
last DSCS III space-
craft in late December
2003.
Orbiting at an
altitude of roughly
22,500 miles, the
DSCS III constel-
lation continues to
provide secure com-
munications and data
services for defense
officials and military
commanders in the
field.
In February 2009,
the Air Force and
Lockheed Martin team
announced that the
DSCS III constella-
tion had surpassed
200 years of on-orbit
operations. It was a
new endurance record
for U.S. military com-
munications satellite

By Chris Calkins
45th Space Wing Public Affairs

Chief Master Sgt. of the Air
Force James A. Roy brings a lot
of "joint and coalition" experi-
ence to his job as the Air Force's
16th senior enlisted advisor.
He made clear he doesn't need
to be "reminded" what the 45th
Space Wing brings to the warf-
ighters in harm's way when he
visited Cape Canaveral Air Force
Station and Patrick Air Force
Base Aug. 21.
"I just visited with five tacti-
cal air control party Airmen last
week who were deploying to Iraq
to support an Army unit. Those
war fighters will use satellites
like the ones launched from the
Cape last Monday morning to
call in airstrikes to help us win
the fight," said CMSAF Roy.
"Although Florida is a long
way from the front lines, with-
out the 45th Space Wing's mis-
sion support, our war fighters,
along with our joint and coali-
tion partners, would be severely
hampered in their mission," he
said.
Currently, the 45th Space


Wing has approximately 100
Airmen deployed in harm's way,
according to Command Chief
Master Sgt. Larry Malcom, 45th
Space Wing Command Chief.
"I think it's a very fresh and
interesting perspective Chief Roy
brings to the office. With all his
joint background experience,
his drive for additional joint and
coalition training will only make
our Air Force even better in
five, 10 or 15 years," said Chief
Malcom.
During the tour, CMSAF
Roy visited with members of
the Launch Group, toured the
Morrell Operations Center, chat-
ted with some CCAFS firemen,
had lunch at the award-winning
Riverside Dining Facility with
several Airmen, attended a base
housing meeting and hosted
an "Enlisted Call" at the Base
Theatre.
"One of the very first things I
noticed was the incredible feeling
of teamwork between the wing's
Airmen, civilians and contrac-
tors. That's a key ingredient to
success across all aspects in all
services in today's world," he
said.


CMSAF Roy also said he was
making sure the welfare of the
family unit and that of the sin-
gle Airman one of his highest
priorities while serving the Air
Force he loves.
"Our families sacrifice when
our Airmen deploy. We need to
make sure we look at the pro-
grams for them and find better
ways to support them," CMSAF
Roy said. "We're also going to
look at programs for our single
Airmen. They have a unique
challenge when they deploy. As
the chief master sergeant of the
Air Force, I'm committed to mak-
ing sure our Airmen and their
families are taken care of," he
said with conviction.
Chief Malcom said even though
the visit was short, the impact
was most powerful.
""What a great opportunity for
the 45th Space Wing to show-
case the space mission to the
Chief Master Sergeant of the Air
Force. His short time was filled
with rockets and Airmen from
across the installation showing
him where 'control of the bat-
tlespace begins'...and that's right
here," he said with a smile.


-. ...P I ,
Firefighters from CCAFS take a break from their training to share a smile and some conversation with the
CMSAF Aug. 21 at the Cape.


CMSAF Roy's visit ended with a passionate speech during the All-Enlisted Call held in the Base Theater.

'Ask Capt. Ready'
is brought to you as a
part of the 45th Space
Wing Emergency
Management
Information Program.
If you have any
questions or com-
ments, please con-
tact the Readiness
& Emergency
Management Flight at
494-4224.

Captain Ready:
The most amazing
thing just happened! I
was arriving at work
this morning when


I saw a truck that
looked like it was
designed to move
chemicals involved
in an accident. There
were some cylinders
on the truck that had
some skull and cross
bone placards on them
that fell, broke open
and released some
chemicals. People that
were close to the
accident starting chok-
ing and passed out. I
also noticed a strange
smell in the air and
was coughing too.
Is there something I


could have done to
protect myself better?
Coughing

Dear Coughing:
I know it is human
nature to watch an
accident and howe-
mergency responders
handle the situation.
In this particular
situation it is best to
actually go inside and
take cover. This type
of protection is known
as "Shelter In Place."
Hopefully the facility
where you work has
a facility manger that


has prepared for this
and has assembled a
Shelter in Place kit.
It is entirely possible
that your facility man-
ager has considered
situations like this
and designated a
specific room in the
middle of the building
that can be isolated.
The Shelter kit may
contain towels and
water to wet the tow-
els to put under
doors, and plastic and
tape to cover vents.
What many people
don't know


is that several people
can survive in a
sealed off room for a
couple hours much
safer than if they were
outside breathing the
chemical. Some
facilities on base have
facility manager that
have the ability to
shut off their heat-
ing, ventilation or air
conditioning (HVAC)
system which further
reduces the amount
of air circulation. If
large sections of the
base are affected by
a chemical the civil


engineer squadron
may shut down power
to facilitate a quick
HVAC shutdown. If
your facility manager
is not familiar with
the concept of Shelter
in Place please have
them call the
Readiness and
Emergency
Management flight at
494-4224. They have
prepared a training
pamphlet on the sub-
ject. Have you consid-
ered calling for a med-
ical appointment to
help with that cough?

August 28, 2009 Vol. 51 No. 34 Patrick Air Force Base/Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla. The 45th Space Wing would like to cordially welcome the AFSPC IG Team to PAFB and CCAFS Photos by Jennifer Macklin Tech. Sgt. Michael Claus, 5th Space Launch Squadron, gives Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force James Roy an up-close-and-personal look at an Atlas V rocket from a different perspective during the CMSAF’s visit to Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and Patrick Air Force Base Aug. 21. Commander’s Call TODAY Brig. Gen. Edward L. Bolton, Jr., will be conducting a Commander's Call today at 8 a.m. in the Base Theater. Please be in your seats by 7:50 a.m. CMSAF Roy visits 45th Collaboration key to success 5 Command Chief Master Sgt. Larry Malcom, right, welcomes CMSAF James Roy at the Patrick flight line Aug. 21. During his tour, CMSAF Roy visited with members of the Launch Group, toured the Morrell Operations Center, chatted with some CCAFS firemen, had lunch at the award-winning Riverside Dining Facility with several Airmen, attended a base housing meeting and hosted an “Enlisted Call” at the Base Theatre. “I just visited with five tactical air control party Airmen last week who were deploying to Iraq to support an Army unit. Those war fight ers will use satellites like the ones launched from the Cape last Monday morning to call in airstrikes to help us win the fight,” said CMSAF Roy. “Although Florida is a long way from the front lines, without the 45th Space Wing’s mission support, our war fighters, along with our joint and coalition partners, would be severely hampered in their mission,” he said.

http://www.patrick.af.mil2 August 28, 2009 Missileer Commander’s Corner By Brig. Gen. Edward L. Bolton, Jr. Commander, 45th Space Wing Well, all the coaching, cajol ing, teaching, preparing, prodding and practicing for the Operational Readiness Inspection will now be put to the test, again, beginning next week. It’s here. Game on. We have talked with the AFSPC Inspection Team and they have made it clear to us that “telling” them what you do or “showing” them a checklist of things we do to execute our mission will not be good enough. We will not pass go. We will not collect $200 without showing them we can walk the talk. So, expect probing questions. Expect challenging scenarios. And more importantly, be ready and willing to “demonstrate” your abili ties to do your mission, whether it’s being evaluated in a day-to-day inspection, or during your actions in response to some kind of unex pected scenario we are sure to encounter over the next few weeks. In any event, I am very confident we will clear the high bar as long as we remember to work together as a team. Former major league baseball manager Casey Stengel hit one out of the park when he said “finding good baseball players is the easy part. Getting them to play as a team is the tough part.” That’s just a simple truth. And from Day 1, when I took command of this Wing, I have never seen a group of people watch each others’ backs the way you do. Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force James Roy said the exact same thing dur ing his visit here last week. It’s that easy to see. Believe me. Let’s face it, the next month or so will be a very busy, very stress ful time for many of us. That being said, I need you to “take care of you.” Don’t let the stress eat at you because if you don't bring your “AGame” we can’t bring ours. Please get the proper rest. Eat right. Exercise. Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Norton A. Schwartz has declared an “All in” philosophy and mentality for the entire Air Force. “Precision and reliability is the standard regardless of job, or grade, or specialty. Everyone contributes – every single person,” Gen. Schwartz said. That's just the simple truth too. Thanks. By Lt. Col. Todd Ellison Deputy Commander, 45th Operations Squadron The great basketball player Michael Jordan once said, “Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.” As we prepare for our upcoming inspection, I believe Jordan’s quote rings true for our mission areas. Only through teamwork will we succeed in executing all aspects of our mission, and only through teamwork will we excel during our upcoming inspection. But how do we become a great team? First, each of us must know the playbook. Within each career field, there are numerous instructions, laws, and procedures that guide our execution. To truly do our jobs efficiently and effectively, we must know the rules and execute to those standards. There simply are no excuses for not knowing the plays in our playbook. We train, we study, and we practice. Once we’re ready, when we have the plays down pat, we execute. Each player on our team has assigned routes to execute. While we function together as a team, we rely on each individual member to execute his or her job the way they have been trained. Individual accountability, atten tion to detail, and the drive to do your job to the best of your ability will help ensure our plays develop as planned: rockets launch successfully, troops deploy, and our base population receives the support we need to execute our missions. No matter how sharply we execute, we run the risk of a bro ken play. As a result, we must be pre pared to react to the unexpected. We work in a dynamic and dan gerous environment, and through our training we learn how to react if something goes differently than planned. During these times, we must turn back to our training to deter mine the best method to react. Well rehearsed contingency plans, coordinated procedures, clear com munications, and a take control attitude will enable you to react cor rectly and turn broken plays into positive gains. As we press through this time of inspection preparations and bustling operations tempo, I’m proud to be a part of the 45th SW team. I look forward to meeting the challenges ahead of us together. To teamwork! Begin by learning the playbook On your mark, get set, exercise! From the top Missileer staff Brig. Gen. Edward L.

Col. and long time Red Cross volunteer coordinator for the 45th Medical Group is presented the U.S. Air Force Space Command Zachary and Elizabeth Fisher Distinguished Civilian Humanitarian Award by Brig. Gen. Edward L. Bolton, Jr., commander, 45th Space Wing during a recent ceremony on base. His son, Steve, is at right. The criteria for the award reads (in part) that the winner must have “personal qualities of patriotism, generosity, and selfless dedication to the members of the Armed Forces of the United States. “Well, after donating more than 8,000 hours – more than 14 years – to enhance the quality of life of military members and their families, it almost seems the award was written for Burt,” said Gen. Bolton. Well Deserved! Photo by Jennifer Macklin August 28, 2009 Missileer 5 By Scott Knuteson Air University Public Affairs 8/25/2009 MAXWELL AIR FORCE BASE, Ala. (AFNS) – The Air Force Information Technology Conference opened Aug. 24 in Montgomery, Ala., with keynote address es from the vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs, the Air Force chief of staff and the CEO of McAfee, Inc. Collaboration emerged as a key theme in the opening day of the conference, which is now in its 26th year. The modern warf ighter has found “tre mendous advantages in networking organi zations,” Gen. James Cartwright, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs, told attendees, saying that the con ference is a valuable tool in learning how to leverage information technology advantag es, he said. The event boasts more than 200 ven dors, 120 seminars and 5,800 registered attendees. “My hat is off to you in the informa tion technology com munity,” Gen. Norton Schwartz, Air Force chief of staff, said in his address. “You are key to how we concen trate our efforts and collaborate.” The IT backbone allows interconnectiv ity between advanced weapon and command and control systems, the general noted, maximizing effective ness in air, space and cyberspace opera tions. Professionals from across the govern ment and private sec tors will gather for the next three days to collaborate and share on the latest technol ogy and its benefits for the Air Force and the Department of Defense as a whole. “We’re proud of the relationship we have with the Air Force,” said Mr. David DeWalt, McAfee CEO and a keynote speak er. “We need to devel op stronger threat intelligence. This rela tionship provides a great opportunity.” Collaboration was also on the mind of U.S. Representative Bobby Bright, the congressional repre sentative from the 2nd District in Alabama, which includes the city of Montgomery. “This is the ideal event to mesh small business and our military community together,” said Mr. Bright, who serves on the House Armed Services Committee. Mr. Bright wel comed the group to Alabama. The con gressman, as well as Mr. John Caporal, deputy director of the Air Force’s Small Business Programs, will speak to the small business forums tak ing place later in the week. Conference forums and events support the conference theme, “The Warfighter’s Edge in Battlespace,” highlighting how information technol ogy contributes to the joint fight. The rapid evolution of the Air Force and the Department of Defense necessitates focus on three tenets, according to Richard Lombardi, the 554th Electronic Systems Wing director. These are rapid acquisi tion, operability at the core and the ability to fight through a cyber attack. Winning, both on the battlefield and in cyberspace, requires the leveraging of Collaboration key to success in cyber operations Gen. Norton A. Schwartz, the Air Force chief of staff, spoke to more than 5,500 Air Force Information Technology Conference attendees Aug. 24 in Montgomery, Ala. This year’s theme, “The Warfighter’s Edge in Battlespace,” aims to highlight the role of information technology in the joint fight.

And risk, though inevitable, cannot stop progress toward applying technology on the battlefield. “Can we afford to step aside because there might be risk?” the general asked. “The answer is no.” The Department of Defense, in col laboration with pri vate industry, must learn to find a balance between the vulner abilities and advan tages of technology, he said. Conference attend ees will have the opportunity to hear other keynote speak ers on a variety of topics throughout the week, including Lt. Gen. William Lord, chief of warfighting integration and chief information officer for the Air Force, and Lt. Gen. Carroll Pollett, director of the Defense Information System Agency and com mander, Joint Task Force-Global, Network Operations. (Jessica Casserly con tributed to this article)

http://www.patrick.af.mil6 August 28, 2009 Missileer By Capt Susan Trepczynski Assistant Staff Judge Advocate As of Aug. 1, 2009, individuals who are eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill may be able to transfer their GI Bill benefits to their spouse and/or children. You are eligible to transfer your benefits to a spouse or child if you are enrolled in the Post-9/11 GI Bill program and you: • Have served at least six years in the Armed Forces at the time you elect to transfer your benefits and you agree to serve at least four more years after the date of election; • Have at least 10 years of service in the Armed Forces (active duty and/or selected reserve) on the date of election, cannot (due to standard service or DOD policy or statute) commit to an additional four years of service, but agree to serve for the maximum amount of time allowed by the policy or statute; or • Are or become retirement eligible during the period from Aug. 1, 2009 through Aug. 1, 2013. If you are, or become, retirement eligible between Aug. 1, 2009 and Aug. 1, 2013, you may need to commit to additional service in order to transfer your benefits. The addi tional service require ments are based on the date you become retirement eligible and are as follows: • If you were eligible for retirement on Aug. 1, 2009, no additional service is required; • If you have an approved retirement date after Aug. 1, 2009 and before July 1, 2010, no additional service is required; • If you are eligible for retirement after Aug. 1, 2009 and before Aug. 1, 2010, one year of additional service after approval of transfer is required; • If you are eligible for retirement on or after Aug. 1, 2010 and before Aug. 1, 2011, two years of addi tional service after approval of transfer are required. • If you are eligible for retirement on or after Aug. 1, 2011 and before Aug. 1, 2012, three years of addi tional service after approval of transfer are required. If you qualify to transfer your Post9/11 GI Bill benefits, you may transfer all of your remaining ben efits (or all 36 months if you have not used any) to your eligible spouse and/or chil dren. Your benefits can be transferred to one person, or to any combination of your spouse and children. In order for your spouse and/or children to be eligible to receive a trans fer of benefits, they must be enrolled in DEERS. In addition, while a spouse may start to use the benefits immediately, children cannot use the ben efits until you have completed 10 years of service in the Armed Forces. Children also may not use the ben efits until they have received a high school diploma (or equivalen cy certificate), or are 18 years of age. Finally, children must use the benefits before reaching age 26. A spouse may use the benefits up to 15 years after the service member’s separation from active duty. In order to find out if your dependents are eligible to receive a transfer of your Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits, you need to fill out a DOD application, which is available online at: https://www.dmdc. osd.mil/TEB/consent ?continueToUrl=%2FT EB%2F. You must receive approval in order to transfer your benefits.

Post-9/11 GI Bill – Transferability of Benefits August 28, 2009 Missileer 7 History Highlights By Mark C. Cleary 45th SW History Office On August 29, 2003, a Delta IV carried the final Defense Satellite Communications System (DSCS) III spacecraft into orbit from Cape Canaveral. Rising from Complex 37B on the evening of the 29th, the Delta IV injected its payload into the proper transfer orbit 42 minutes later. The launch was the end of an era, and not just for the DSCS III. The first DSCS III satellite had been launched into space in October 1982, but the DSCS (pro nounced “discus”) saga really began 18 years earlier. Way back in October 1964, the Defense Communications Agency contracted Philco-Ford to design, build and deliver the Initial Defense Communications Satellite Program (IDCSP) satellites and their dispensers. Each of the firstgeneration satel lites weighed only 99 pounds, so the spacecraft could be launched in clusters of four, seven or eight satellites at a time. They were designed to relay teletype mes sages, voice commu nications, photos and The Cape’s Last DSCS III Mission digital data from orbit — about 21,000 miles above Earth’s surface. The first cluster of seven IDCSP satel lites was launched from Cape Canaveral aboard a Titan IIIC on June 16, 1966. Those satellites were orbited success fully, but a second Titan IIIC mission failed on August 26, 1966 about 79 sec onds after lift-off. Other Titan IIICs deployed the rest of the first genera tion satellites from the Cape in January 1967, July 1967 and June 1968. During the late 1960s, the IDCSP satellites provided the military with a lot of ‘hands on’ experience in the application of spacecraft technology and spaceflight tech niques. The next generation (DSCS II) spacecraft were considerably larger satellites, and they offered substan tial improvements in communications capacity and trans mission strength. Each cylindrical DSCS II was nine feet wide and six feet high. It weighed about 1,350 pounds, and its solar array was 13 feet wide on-orbit. The prime contractor, TRW, delivered 16 DSCS IIs. The first two DSCS II spacecraft were orbited in November 1971. They had an operational life expec tancy of four years, but that lifespan rose to 10 years for later spacecraft in the series. A constellation of four DSCS IIs was operational by midDecember 1978, and DSCS II missions continued long after the new DSCS IIIs made their debut in 1982. The last DSCS II accompanied a DSCS III spacecraft into space in 1989. A total of 14 DSCS III spacecraft were procured from the original contractor (General Electric) and the division’s later owners, Martin Marietta and Lockheed Martin. Though about the same size as a DSCS II, each DSCS III weighed approxi mately 2,700 pounds and carried six super high frequency tran sponders for secure voice and high data rate communications. Its 38-foot-wide solar array provided greater power. The Air Force/ Lockheed Martin team completed their onorbit checkout of the last DSCS III space craft in late December 2003. Orbiting at an altitude of roughly 22,500 miles, the DSCS III constel lation continues to provide secure com munications and data services for defense officials and military commanders in the field. In February 2009, the Air Force and Lockheed Martin team announced that the DSCS III constella tion had surpassed 200 years of on-orbit operations. It was a new endurance record for U.S. military com munications satellite constellations. During the late 1960s, the IDCSP satellites provided the military with a lot of ‘hands on’ experience in the application of spacecraft technology and spaceflight techniques. Courtesy Photo

http://www.patrick.af.mil 8 August 28, 2009 Missileer August 28, 2009 Missileer 9 By Chris Calkins 45th Space Wing Public Affairs Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force James A. Roy brings a lot of “joint and coalition” experi ence to his job as the Air Force’s 16th senior enlisted advisor. He made clear he doesn’t need to be “reminded” what the 45th Space Wing brings to the warf ighters in harm’s way when he visited Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and Patrick Air Force Base Aug. 21. “I just visited with five tacti cal air control party Airmen last week who were deploying to Iraq to support an Army unit. Those war fighters will use satellites like the ones launched from the Cape last Monday morning to call in airstrikes to help us win the fight,” said CMSAF Roy. “Although Florida is a long way from the front lines, with out the 45th Space Wing’s mis sion support, our war fighters, along with our joint and coali tion partners, would be severely hampered in their mission,” he said. Currently, the 45th Space Wing has approximately 100 Airmen deployed in harm’s way, according to Command Chief Master Sgt. Larry Malcom, 45th Space Wing Command Chief. “I think it’s a very fresh and interesting perspective Chief Roy brings to the office. With all his joint background experience, his drive for additional joint and coalition training will only make our Air Force even better in five, 10 or 15 years,” said Chief Malcom. During the tour, CMSAF Roy visited with members of the Launch Group, toured the Morrell Operations Center, chat ted with some CCAFS firemen, had lunch at the award-winning Riverside Dining Facility with several Airmen, attended a base housing meeting and hosted an “Enlisted Call” at the Base Theatre. “One of the very first things I noticed was the incredible feeling of teamwork between the wing’s Airmen, civilians and contrac tors. That’s a key ingredient to success across all aspects in all services in today’s world,” he said. CMSAF Roy also said he was making sure the welfare of the family unit and that of the sin gle Airman – one of his highest priorities while serving the Air Force he loves. “Our families sacrifice when our Airmen deploy. We need to make sure we look at the pro grams for them and find better ways to support them,” CMSAF Roy said. “We’re also going to look at programs for our single Airmen. They have a unique challenge when they deploy. As the chief master sergeant of the Air Force, I’m committed to mak ing sure our Airmen and their families are taken care of,” he said with conviction. Chief Malcom said even though the visit was short, the impact was most powerful. “”What a great opportunity for the 45th Space Wing to show case the space mission to the Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force. His short time was filled with rockets and Airmen from across the installation showing him where ‘control of the bat tlespace begins’...and that’s right here,” he said with a smile. CMSAF Roy impressed with 45th Space Wing visit CMSAF James Roy, second from right, gets a brieng at CCAFS Aug. 21 from (left to right) Chief Master Sgt. Jeff Hall, Superintendent, 45th Launch Group, Lt. Col. Dave Hook, commander, 5th Space Launch Squadron and Tech. Sgt. Jason Steward, 5th SLS, who helped brief the CMSAF. CMSAF James Roy completes his tour of the Atlas V rocket launch pad at CCAFS with a view from the top of the massive structure. During a stop at the award-winning Riverside Dining Facility, CMSAF prepares to “coin” Airman 1st Class Omar Sanchezhernandez, 45th Medical Group, the current 45th SW “Airman of the Quarter.” Fireghters from CCAFS take a break from their training to share a smile and some conversation with the CMSAF Aug. 21 at the Cape. CMSAF Roy’s visit ended with a passionate speech during the All-Enlisted Call held in the Base Theater. All photos by Jennifer Macklin

We appreciate your understanding and thank you for practicing patience as we practice readiness. August 28, 2009 Missileer 13 ‘Ask Capt. Ready’ is brought to you as a part of the 45th Space Wing Emergency Management Information Program. If you have any questions or com ments, please con tact the Readiness & Emergency Management Flight at 494-4224. Captain Ready: The most amazing thing just happened! I was arriving at work this morning when I saw a truck that looked like it was designed to move chemicals involved in an accident. There were some cylinders on the truck that had some skull and cross bone placards on them that fell, broke open and released some chemicals. People that were close to the accident starting chok ing and passed out. I also noticed a strange smell in the air and was coughing too. Is there something I could have done to protect myself better? – Coughing Dear Coughing: I know it is human nature to watch an accident and howe mergency responders handle the situation. In this particular situation it is best to actually go inside and take cover. This type of protection is known as “Shelter In Place.” Hopefully the facility where you work has a facility manger that has prepared for this and has assembled a Shelter in Place kit. It is entirely possible that your facility man ager has considered situations like this and designated a specific room in the middle of the building that can be isolated. The Shelter kit may contain towels and water to wet the tow els to put under doors, and plastic and tape to cover vents. What many people don't know is that several people can survive in a sealed off room for a couple hours much safer than if they were outside breathing the chemical. Some facilities on base have facility manager that have the ability to shut off their heat ing, ventilation or air conditioning (HVAC) system which further reduces the amount of air circulation. If large sections of the base are affected by a chemical the civil engineer squadron may shut down power to facilitate a quick HVAC shutdown. If your facility manager is not familiar with the concept of Shelter in Place please have them call the Readiness and Emergency Management flight at 494-4224. They have prepared a training pamphlet on the sub ject. Have you consid ered calling for a med ical appointment to help with that cough?
