Christopher Thomas4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team PublicAffairs Officer, 4th Infantry DivisionSgt. Andrew Mahoney received the nation’s thirdhighest award for valor in combat for his actionswhile serving in Afghanistan, during a ceremonyMonday at the 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team,4th Infantry Division, headquarters.Maj. Gen. Paul J. LaCamera, commandinggeneral, 4th Inf. Div. and Fort Carson, presented theSilver Star Medal to Mahoney, in front of severalhundred members of the “Mountain Warrior”Brigade, his Family and Gold StarFamily members.Lt. Col. Neal Doherty,commander, 4th Special TroopsBattalion, 4th IBCT, 4th Inf.Div., described Mahoney as ahumble Soldier and leader.“If you asked him about thatday, he will tell you he was justdoing his job,” said Doherty.Mahoney distinguished him-self Aug. 8, when two suicidebombers approached Col. JamesMingus, then 4th BCT commander,and other members of the com-mand group as they moved on foot from a coalitionbase to the Kunar Provincial Governor’s Compoundfor a security meeting. Mahoney and PersonalSecurity Detachment Commander Capt. FlorentGroberg, identified a suspicious individual with anabnormal bulge protruding from his clothing movingtoward the patrol.Taking immediate and spontaneous action, fullybelieving the individual to be targeting Mingus with asuicide vest, Mahoney and Groberg charged theindividual to prevent him from entering the patrol.They threw the attacker to the ground where he thendetonated his suicide vest, wounding Mahoney andGroberg. Mahoney and Groberg’sactions greatly disrupted the attack,preventing an even greater loss oflife, according to the citation.A second suicide bombertargeted the patrol in the aftermath ofthe first attack, detonating his vest,killing and wounding severalmembers of the patrol. In spite of hisown injuries, Mahoney maintainedfocus on securing the brigade com-mander and other survivors.Killed in the blast were 4th BCTCommand Sgt. Maj. Kevin Griffin;Maj. Thomas Kennedy; brigadefire support officer; Maj. Walter Gray, brigade airliaison officer; and Ragaei Abdelfattah, U.S. Agencyfor International Development representative. Severalother members of the brigade’s leadership wereseriously wounded along with senior StateDepartment representative Jeff Lodinsky.LaCamera praised Mahoney’s valor and courage.“He’s selfless, humble, courageous and willing togive his life for the mission and his fellow Soldiers,”LaCamera said. “Your actions represent the valor andspirit and the leadership of our NCO corps.“The backbone of our great Army; it is not theweapons or equipment, but the men and women likeSgt. Mahoney, that make the U.S. military thegreatest in the world,” he said.After the ceremony, Mahoney, a communicationsnoncommissioned officer, thanked those in attendance,and honored those who could not be there.“Definitely honored, it’s a bittersweet day,” hesaid. “I wish I could go back and play the whole dayover again, but it is definitely an honor to standbefore all these people and receive this award.”Mahoney’s heroic actions protected the 24other Soldiers in the patrol, but to him, he was justdoing his job.His wife Melanie Mahoney sees it differently.“I’m just so happy. He’s my hero,” she said. “Evenif he doesn’t think so, every day, (he’s) my hero.”“If you askedhim about thatday, he will tellyou he was justdoing his job.”— Lt. Col. Neal Doherty

Devin MatthewSexton proved to be a courteous,professional and efficient driver.“I enjoyed it. I felt like I was ableto give back to the single Soldiers.For many, that’s their only modeof transportation,” said Sexton, atanker with 1st Battalion, 66th ArmorRegiment, 1st Armored BrigadeCombat Team, 4th Infantry Division.Throughout his 15 weeks as ashuttle driver, Sexton earned numerouscompliments from riders whocommended him for his enthusiasmand effort to make each ride enjoyable.“I like meeting new peopleand learning about them,” he said.“One day I picked up a guy fromIraq. He was an interpreter and nowhe’s a Soldier. … I like learningabout other Soldiers.”Sexton said he operated the shuttleevery other day, including weekendsand holidays. Shifts ranged from sevento 11 hours, depending on the day. Onhis days off, he trained and preparedfor an upcoming deployment.“On our days off we were doingpre-deployment (Soldier ReadinessProcessing),” he said. “We had togo in and do online courses, packingand preparation.”Despite the heavy workload,Sexton remained upbeat, listeningto country music and Christian rockstations as he drove the streets ofthe Mountain Post.“I was listening to the Christianstation and picked up a guy. Hestarted talking to me and he said thatthe music helped him decide to attendchurch and he asked to be droppedoff at the chapel,” said Sexton. “Thatopened my eyes that there was morehappening out there than me driving.”Other ICE ACES for Marchinclude:• Classroom B of the CheyenneMountain Child Development Center• Jose Lechuga, Military PersonnelDivision, Directorate ofHuman ResourcesIt takes leadership to stopsexual harassment, assaultBy Maj. Gen. Paul J. LaCameraCommanding general, 4th InfantryDivision and Fort CarsonSexual assault and harassment hasbeen a problem within the military. It isstill an issue within our ranks at JointTask Force Carson.One might say “we have left ourfallen comrades behind.”It must be eliminated.Former Secretary of Defense LeonPanetta estimated 19,000 sexual assaultsoccurred within the military in 2011.From 2010-2012, statistics show 158founded sex related offenses occurred atFort Carson, with approximately 50 founded offensesoccurring each year.This is unacceptable.Every Soldier, noncommissioned officer and officerknows this is unacceptable.It is time for this to change. And in order to change,Fort Carson leaders and Soldiers must hold themselves andeach other to a high standard.Leadership and enforcement are key to stopping thisbehavior. Sexual harassment and assault diminishes andundermines our combat readiness, our commitment to theWarrior Ethos and our roles as protectors of this nation. Ourleaders and our Soldiers must take ownership of this problem.To eliminate sexual assault and harassment, we need toinvoke a cultural change. That change begins with leaders.No more will we tolerate the off-color humor, thesexually-suggestive verbiage and the degrading treatmenttoward our fellow men and women in uniform. The key toeliminating this behavior is not tolerating it, and therefore,our leaders must enforce the standards. Sexual harassmentand assault are splinters within our ranks.The building of cohesive, highlytrained teams at the lowest level is requiredto fulfill our obligation of winning ournation’s wars. Our success is relianton trust where Soldiers depend on theperson to the left and the right toaccomplish the mission.Incidents of harassment and assaultdestroy that cohesiveness. It destroysunits and organizations.More importantly, it destroys Soldiers.Our leaders at the lowest levels mustenforce standards of conduct. Our squad,platoon, and company-level leadershipneed to be vigilant of these indicatorsand must enforce the Army standards.In addition to upholding these standards, leadershipmust also create a trusting environment, so if a Soldierexperiences harassment or assault, he or she feelsconfident in reporting the incident.And confident their leadership will act.Oftentimes, victims do not feel confident in reportingincidents of harassment and assault for fear of beingblamed or that the accused is “protected.”Strong leadership results in trust.Victims must trust their chain of command to act;otherwise they will not report these incidents and thecycle of harassment and assault continues.Eradicating sexual assault requires that leaders beengaged at the lowest level. There is no gray area.We will continue to educate but what is needednow more than ever is enforcement of the standard;enforcement of our Army values; enforcement of treatingall with dignity and respect; and accountability.We must make the hunters the hunted.I challenge all of you to live the Soldier’s Creedand never leave a fallen comrade behind.LaCameraSexton

The transitionis prioritized, based on the type offacility to maximize comfort forbuilding occupants. DPW and FCSSrequest customer patience as thetransition takes place.The following is a tentativeschedule, subject to change as weatherdictates, for shutting down andisolating heating systems.

It was very motivatingto see them.”After the re-enlistment, the 4th Inf. Div. leadershad lunch with brigade company commanders andfirst sergeants, met with the brigade’s senior staffto discuss their command philosophy and highlightthe importance of sharing resiliency lessons withRaider Soldiers.LaCamera then visited the Camp BuehringTraining Village, where he observed Soldiershoning their warrior skills.“It was a little nerve-wracking, but the extrapressure made all of us perform a little bit better,”said Spc.

5April 26, 2013 — MOUNTAINEERASAPreachesSoldiersthroughcomedyStory and photos byStaff Sgt. Wallace Bonner4th Infantry Division Public Affairs“Alcohol and drug prevention briefs are tough;how do you make that topic interesting and keepeveryone’s attention?”Bernie McGrenahan’s answer to his ownquestion is “entertainment,” which he broughtto 734 members of the Fort Carson communitythrough two, one-hour shows at the McMahonAuditorium, April 18, sponsored by the ArmySubstance Abuse Program.“I figure that if I can get (the audience)laughing, if you’ll let me bring you some comedy andmaybe entertain you, then maybe you’ll trustme and let me tell my story,” said McGrenahan.“It’s all fact. It’s true, and it’s from the heart.”The comedian’s comfortable stage presence,ability to connect and easy humor kept the audiencein a constant chuckle for the entertainment portion,the first half of the show. McGrenahan’s seamlesstransition into the alcohol and drug abuse portion,coupled with his storytelling ability, made thealcohol abuse part of the show.“It was amazing, it was a lot better thanPowerPoint,” said Pvt. Zachary Grieger, Company D,1st Battalion, 66th Armor Regiment, 1st ArmoredBrigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division.“I didn’t quit laughing the whole time, except forwhen (he was) talking about his brother.”McGrenahan used both his own personalexperience of alcohol abuse, from a teenageruntil he was 24; and his brother’s drinking, which ledto his suicide, to reach Soldiers about thedangers of alcohol.The comedian’s sharing of the intimate detailsof his life in regard to alcohol addiction wasappreciated by the Soldiers.“I liked that he put some real-life testimonywith it,” said Staff Sgt. Walter Johnson, Company D,1st Bn., 66th Armor Reg. “The personal testimonylets Soldiers know they can beat (alcohol).“Being able to laugh at the same time (aslearning) has been a great benefit,” said Johnson.“This put a beautiful spin on a tough subject.”McGrenahan went longer than scheduled, whichhe said was due to the powerful connection he hadwith the audience, and that he wanted to make surethe message really came across to the Soldiers.“I know alcohol like a book, and I know aboutSoldiers,” McGrenahan said. “I know what it is tohave a couple drinks and have a good time, but I alsoknow what it is like to drink too much andhave it affect my life, and every area of my life; myfinances, my relationships and my job.“I just want to help Soldiers identify that ‘yes,I do have it under control,’ or possibly ‘I’ve beenunder stress and drinking too much, and thisperson helped me realize it. I’m going to go speak tomy resources and get on track.’”McGrenahan said the best part of doing theASAP show is connecting with the audience,and the emails he receives from people that seehis performances.He shared one he had received after a show:“‘Hey man, I just left your show, and honestly,you have me thinking about myself. Your story hit memore than anyone else’s has, ever. I’ve used ASAPbefore, when I first came back from deployment. Ithelped me not go all-out stupid drunk, but I stillcontinue to drink.’”The sender also asked for advice on how he couldcontrol his drinking.McGrenahan said when he receives an emailthat states, “‘You made me realize that maybeI have a problem,’ or ‘You made me realize thatI don’t want to go down that path, you helped meopen my eyes,’ that’s the payoff right there.”Susanne Watts, ASAP prevention coordinator,was pleased with how McGrenahan was received.“I think it went well,” said Watts. “I don’t thinkpeople minded that it went long; I didn’t see peopledoing the cell phone checks or checking theirwatches. I think they were engaged. We’ve tried scaretactics before; they don’t work so well.”Watts said ASAP tries to bring in somethingdifferent with each big campaign. The next one willbe Summer Sense, which will focus on all the outsideevents that typically include the use of alcohol.Comedian Bernie McGrenahan entertains Fort Carsoncommunity members during an Army Substance AbuseProgram show at McMahon Auditorium, April 18. McGrenahanperformed a comedy routine prior to engaging the audiencewith his own experiences with alcohol addiction.“I figure that if I can get (the audience)laughing, if you’ll let me bring yousome comedy and maybe entertainyou, then maybe you’ll trust me andlet me tell my story. It’s all fact. It’strue, and it’s from the heart.”— Bernie McGrenahanFor more information on ASAP, visithttp://www.carson.army.mil/dhr/DHR/ASAP.html.

7April 26, 2013 — MOUNTAINEER“Demand Soars For Knee Arthritis Treatment FDAApproved, Covered By Most Insurance Even Medicare”Osteo Relief Institute offers effective, technologically enhanced arthritis treatment…prepares for overwhelming demand as news of its results spread across the El Paso County area...El Paso County – Arthritis sufferers can’t get itfast enough and doctors offering it can’t keep upwith the demand.“Results are truly impressive and patients arethrilled,” says the staff at Osteo Relief Institute ForSpine, Joint And Neuropathy Pain located at 1465Kelly Johnson Blvd. Suite 100.They are referring to their innovative arthritistreatment program featuring Hyalgan at The OsteoRelief Institute in Colorado Springs, Colorado.They’ve found that the response has been a littleoverwhelming. Once patients found out there is anFDA approved, Doctor administered arthritis treat-ment that actually works – without the side effectsof toxic pain pills or risks of replacement surgery -What Is This TreatmentAnd How Does It Work?If you are suffering with knee (or other joint)arthritis and pain, you are not alone. Degenera-tive joint disease or “arthritis” affects 21 millionAmeri- cans and typically involves the weightbearing joints – like your knees. According to theAmerican College of Rheumatology, nearly 70%of people over the age of 70 have x-ray evidence ofthe disease (and the ranks much younger victimsof-cantly).The worst thing is: Arthritis can be devastat-ing. The pain can keep you up at night and makegetting out of bed and moving around a dauntingtask. The pain and stiffnesscan drain all the happinessand joy right out of a per-son’s life.And up until now, treat-ment options have been lim-ited, not that good... or thatappealing to most patients.The basic protocol hasbeen a steady diet of toxicpain pills until your jointscompletely wear out andthen it’s time to surgicallyreplace the knee joint.But Now Things Have ChangedOsteoarthritis is a joint disease that mostlyaffects the cartilage. Cartilage is the tissue thatcovers the ends on bones in a joint. When healthy,cartilage allows bones to glide smoothly over oneanother and acts as a shock absorber.Your “normal” knee also contains a smalllubricates the joint – much like oil lubricates theengine of your car.In osteoarthritis, the cartilage breaks downlubricating properties and “dries up.” This is likerunning your car with very old or no oil at all. Nowas you attempt to use your knee(s), there is notenough lubrication which causes bones to grindtogether resulting in pain, swelling, stiffness andthe joint continues to wear out. This is a viciouscycle and can lead to bone-on-bone rubbing andexcruciating pain.problem. They simply mask the pain so you do notfeel the pain as your joints continue to deteriorate.The eventual repercussions of this are obvious.Hyalgan Is Very DifferentAnd here is why: It contains hyaluronate, one ofHyalgan is precisely introduced directly into yourknee joint in a series of 3-5 treatments (depend-ing on severity) over a 4 to 6 week period. Thisinstantly cushions the joint, reduces friction andallows greater motion with less pain or no pain atall in some cases.Hyalgan treatment not only lubricates the joint,but it acts as a shock absorber helping reduceHere’s something very important to consider:Even though Hyalgan IS a natural substance and isNOT considered a drug, it is NOT something youcan get at your local health food store. It is scien-companies, FDA approved and can ONLY adminis-What’s Results Can You Expect?Pharmaceuticals and their FDA clearance research,“A course of Hyalgan treatment– will relieve painin a majority of patients for 6 months without the-tory drug (NSAID) therapy. In many patients, theeffect of Hyalgan is likely to last even longer than6 months.”And the best part is: Since Hyalgan is a naturalsubstance; it can be used over and over withoutrisk. If it works for you, you may be able to lookforward to years with less pain.Who Should Consider Hyalgan Therapy, WhereCan You Get It And When Should You Start?You should certainly consider Hyalgan therapyif you have been diagnosed with knee arthritisor told you need a knee replacement. If you havenot been diagnosed with arthritis but have eitherclimbing stairs or loss of motion in the knee – youshould consider a screening to determine what thecause of your problem may be. If you have any ofthose issues mentioned, there isa very good chance you alreadyhave - or are starting to get arthri-tis.Very Important –Do Not Wait Here’s Why...Studies indicate that if thearthritis is caught soon enough,the cushioning effect of the ofthe treatments, may help slowthe progression and help manyavoid joint replacement surgeryall together. In other words, thesooner you start – the sooner youmay see results.Does the procedure hurt? A local anesthetic isgiven and the procedure is virtually painless. Mostpatients say it feels like nothing more than a slight“pinching” sensation... that’s it.Why Treatments At Osteo Relief InstituteAre So Extremely PreciseOur doctors are particularly well trained instate-of-the-art digital motion imaging which al-lows them to see inside the joint and get the naturalcushioning Hyalgan medicine exactly where itneeds to go. This makes sure treatments have thebest possibility for maximum success. This is veryimportant because studies clearly indicate that doc-tors doing these types of proce-dures - without digital imaging- can miss the joint space up to30% of the time.How To Check Out ThisBreakthrough Treatment AndSee It Is Right For You-For FREEAll the doctors at OsteoRelief Institute are extremelyexcited about the response andresults with this wonderful treat-ment and would like to share itwith as many arthritis sufferersas possible.But There Is A Problem...Even though Hyalgan can helpmany patients, it is not a wonder cure. It does nothelp everyone.For that reason, every potential patient shouldhave a free knee screening. You will only be ac-cepted if we feel you are most likely to get the painrelief and outcome you are looking for.That’s why Osteo Relief Institute would like toinvite you to come in for a knee arthritis screeningat no cost to see if you actually are a candidate fora comprehensive evaluation and Hyalgan treat-ments.All you have to do is call 719-344-2165 afterreading this and when the scheduling specialist an-swers the phone, tell her you would like your free“Conquer Knee Pain And Arthritis Screening.” Shewill know exactly what you are talking about andDuring this time you can get all of your ques-tions answered in a warm, friendly environmentspecialized rehab program is right for you.But if you would like to do this, you should callsoon.

15April 26, 2013 — MOUNTAINEEREditor’s note: The following information isprovided by the Installation Security Division tolet community members know how to identify andreport suspicious activity.Immediately report suspicious activities tolocal law enforcement, even if you think it may benothing. On post, call 526-8286.If you see suspicious behavior, do not confrontthe individuals involved.Take note of the details:Size; jot down the number of people,gender, ages and physical descriptionsActivity; describe exactly what they are doingLocation; provide exact locationUniform; describe what they are wearing,including shoesTime; provide date, time and durationof activityEquipment; describe vehicle, make, color,license plate, camera, guns, etc.Suspicious activity is often recalled after an event.We must train ourselves to be on the lookout for thingsthat are out of the ordinary and arouse suspicions.Keep in mind, those who commit terrorist acts:— Usually live among us without appearingsuspicious while planning and preparing for theirattack. They may be a neighbor, student or friend.— Often they will need training or equipment thatwill arouse suspicion.— Need to conduct surveillance on possible targets andgather information on the planned attack location.All of these things make terrorists vulnerable todetection by those watching for certain characteristics.Learn to recognize the difference between normaland abnormal behavior. It can be a fine line.Stay alert in daily travels and routines andget to know:— Who your neighbors are— What cars are normally in the neighborhood— Who regularly makes deliveries at work and inthe neighborhoodStaying alert is not about becoming paranoid.Staying alert is being aware of one’s surroundings.Be alert to indications of possible trouble, whichmay include:— A local activity that could indicate problems inyour community.— Previous activity or crimes— Controversial issues being debated— Suspicious theftsNote: One of the clues that led to the recentbreak up of a terrorist plot was that several ofthe cell members were spotted celebrating in anapartment complex on the anniversary of 9/11.It is impossible to identify a terrorist byappearance, nationality or language.A terrorist threat can only be identified byobserving or hearing about suspicious activitythat may lead to a criminal act.Identifying suspicious activity is not a difficultscience. Rely on judgment. Suspicion of a threatcan be confirmed with only one incident or itcould take a series of incidents.Suspicions will need to be based on:— Experience— Judgment— Common senseHere is an example of unusual interest in high riskor symbolic targets: While at a high profile location,a person nearby is taking several photos.

Their names have beenremoved at their request to protect their privacy.At another Army post, in what feels likeanother life, three male Soldiers raped a femaleprivate first class.She knew her attackers. They all servedin the same company. Two were her noncom-missioned officers.“They were my friends,” she said. “I said‘no,’ and I fought as hard as I could.”After the attack, she didn’t go to the police.She didn’t seek medical help. And she didn’t tellher commanders.“I was a private,” shesaid. “There was no way(my commanders) wouldbelieve a private over aspecialist and two NCOs.”She said her pride tookover and she “soldiered up,”keeping the attack to herself.She became angry. Shedidn’t sleep and she lostweight. She attempted suicide.When she admitted tocounselors that she’d been raped,she said the Army provideda litany of services, none ofwhich she felt would help.“The Army threw all thesepeople at me, all these peoplepushing me to talk,” she said.But she wasn’t ready totalk. She wasn’t ready to relivewhat was arguably the worstday of her life.Then she met the represen-tative for the post’s SexualHarassment/Assault Responseand Prevention program.“The SHARP (representative) was the firstperson that didn’t ask me anything,” she said. “Atfirst I thought she was just another lady trying toget into my head. But she didn’t push. Shewaited. She waited for me to lose it.”The statisticsAccording to an Army study conducted betweenfiscal 2006-2011, more than 8,000 Soldierscommitted sex offenses including 2,683 rape offenses.At Fort Carson, between calendar years 2010-2012, 158 founded sex related offenses occurred.Of those offenses, 111 were sexual assaults.To help prevent and educate the Soldier populationabout harassment and assault, as well as provide anoutlet for victims, the Army created SHARP in 2008.An offshoot of the Army’s Sexual AssaultPrevention and Response and Prevention ofSexual Harassment programs,SHARP trained Soldiersas victim advocates, withrepresentatives at the brigade,battalion and company levels,providing Soldiers a confidantwithin their unit.There are currently 579trained SHARP representativesat Fort Carson with 11 civiliansat Army Community Service,said Sgt. 1st Class AnthonyMaldonado, 4th InfantryDivision SHARP representative.In April, to promote SexualAssault Awareness Month,SHARP endorsed informationbooths and a postwide safetystand down day. It premiered thedocumentary “The InvisibleWar,” bringing attention tothe military’s treatment ofservicemembers who haveexperienced an assault.Each quarter, SHARPrepresentatives provide NationalOrganization Victim Assistancecertifications and trainingfor SHARP mobile training teams.And while the goal is to reduce the numberof assaults, it is equally important to bring attentionto and reduce sexual harassment, Maldonado said.,4th Infantry Division SHARP representative.“We’re emphasizing sexual harassment andnot being a passive bystander,” he said. “Assault isthe end state. It begins with harassment.”Recognizing harassmentFor most of her service, the sergeant firstclass didn’t realize she was being harassed.When she was pregnant with her first child,an officer offered to help her “induce labor.”A first sergeant sent her inappropriate textstelling her how beautiful she was, even though hewas married with a wife and children.“I didn’t realize that most of my career I’vebeen harassed,” said the female sergeant first classand one of the SHARP representatives at FortCarson. “I didn’t know or recognize what washappening to me and that I could report it.”Not recognizing sexual harassment iscommon for both male and female Soldiers,Maldonado said.“It’s systematic across the Army,” he said.When Soldiers are new to a unit, they want tofit in, Maldonado said. In order to fit in, Soldierscompromise their tolerance or values. They letthe crude jokes and off-color humor slide in orderto be accepted.“It’s human nature to want to fit in,” he said.“We bring down our barriers and values to fitin. We may think some things are wrong, but wedon’t say anything.”Maldonado said that while SHARP officialshope to reach a short-term goal directing Soldiersto services, the attitude and behavior regardingsexual harassment and assault must change at theunit level, the individual level.“Leaders must enforce dignity, respect andstandards,” he said. “Is (harassment) somethingwe can change in training? No. It’s up to theindividual (to change).”“Leaders mustenforce dignity,respect andstandards. Is(harassment)something we canchange in training?No. It’s up tothe individual(to change).”— Sgt. 1st Class Anthony MaldonadoSee Sharp on Page 20

SHARP officials and Soldiersrecognize this may be easier saidthan done.“The people who (harass) youare often the ones closest to you,”said a female sergeant.On her first tour in Iraq, thesergeant said she spoke up about beingharassed by her male counterparts.“I was working and I heard(the male Soldiers) playing a game,”she said. “They told me they wereplaying ‘How many beers would ittake for me to (expletive) them.’The specialist said zero.”She said the specialist, whomshe considered a friend and abrother, grabbed her leg.“I stopped it,” she said.“But then he told our commandersthat I was being disrespectful. Thatimpacted me.”“Bystanders are just as much ofthe problem as the person committingthe act,” said the sergeant first classSHARP representative. “If you don’tcorrect the behavior, you’re settinga new standard. … If you turn ablind eye or a deaf ear, you’re settinga low standard.“There’s a tactful way ofsaying what’s right,” she said. “Theymight be mad at you at first, butin the long run, they will havemore respect for you.”A resolutionFor the private first class, thingsare improving.“When I got here, I wanted toforget about it,” she said.Her SHARP representative, thesergeant first class, reminded herthat she still had support.When the private first classattended the Article 32 hearinginvolving her attackers, her SHARPrepresentative escorted her.“I thought I could do this bymyself,” said the private first class.“But I couldn’t.“If it wasn’t for SHARP, I wouldn’tbe here. I don’t like to swallow mypride and ask for help. But I knowthey’re going to answer their phone.I know I’m not bothering them if Icall later at night to talk things out.”SHARP officials said this istheir mission, their purpose.“We can’t tell you when you’regoing to be ready to talk,” Maldonadosaid. “We don’t have a policy stating,‘If this happened to you Monday,you have to disclose it by the closeof business Tuesday. Here’s a listof people you need to see.’“It’s not on our time; it’s on theindividual’s time.”Maldonado said Fort Carsonoffers numerous support groups, butthe individual must decide when thetime is right to use those networks.In the meantime, SHARPrepresentatives will be there.“(Sexual harassment andassault) is not going to changeovernight,” Maldonado said. “Wehave to start here as a group, inour units and pass that along to theyounger generations.”For many Soldiers, talking aboutthe experience is the first step.“If we start speaking and starttalking, even more will comeforward,” said the private first class.“Eventually (sexual harassment andassault) will go down. We havegood support now; we’re not justgoing to fall through the cracks.”As the private first class continueswith her Army career, she hopes shecan one day use her experience tohelp others, perhaps become aSHARP representative herself.“I want to be able to do that forsomeone else,” she said. “I’m notthere yet, but I’m getting there.”20 MOUNTAINEER — April 26, 2013The person pictured is not an actual service member.from Page 16Sharp

William Smith4th Infantry DivisionPublic Affairs OfficeDENVER — The stadium eruptedwith cheers as the Colorado Avalanchetook the ice for its pregame warm-upSunday, donning special camouflagejerseys as a show of support forthe men and women who servethe nation in uniform.Servicemembers and theirFamilies from throughout theFront Range were honored during thecourse of the Colorado Avalanche’ssecond annual Military AppreciationNight at the Pepsi Center in Denver.After warm-ups concluded, thecrowd grew quiet as the red carpetwas rolled onto the ice. Cheerserupted as each branch of themilitary was announced, as fivemembers representing eachservice — to include five FortCarson Soldiers representing theArmy — took their positions atcenter ice. U.S. Army GarrisonFort Carson Commander Col.David Grosso was then intro-duced as he walked to thecenter ice faceoff circle toofficiate the ceremonial puckdrop between the Colorado Avalanche andSt. Louis Blues team captains.The pregame festivities concluded witha joint service color guard presenting thecolors as the on-ice participants, deckedout in their respective service uniforms,sharply saluted at the beginning of thenational anthem and two Air Forceparatroopers rappelled from the rafters,unfurling a giant American flag.Throughout the game, the Jumbotronfeatured many “shout-out” videos fromdeployed servicemembers to their Familiesin attendance — eight of them from FortCarson Soldiers assigned to 1st ArmoredBrigade Combat Team, 4th InfantryDivision, currently serving at CampBuehring in Kuwait.“I felt that it was really awesome andheartwarming that they played those videosfor us during the game,” said SummerCampbell, spouse of Spc. Chris Campbell,1st Battalion, 22nd Infantry Regiment,1st ABCT, 4th Inf. Div. “It makes meproud to know that my husband, and mykids’ father, is serving. It is also reallyemotional because of the pain of missingsomebody so much.“It is unbelievable to go through whatwe, (military) wives, go through on adaily basis,” said Summer Campbell.“A lot of people take for granted thesacrifices that spouses and Soldiers make.(The Soldiers) miss the children growingup, anniversaries and birthdays; but inthe long run it is worth it because, asmilitary Families, we’re built strong andcan go through almost anything.”Spc. William Ocasio, Company A, 4thBrigade Support Battalion, 1st ABCT, 4thInf. Div., said he was honored to representthe Army during the pregame show.“I feel honored and appreciated tobe chosen to represent the Army …and to be in this environment surroundedby everyone that is grateful for whatwe do,” Ocasio said.“When you’re out there in the field,and you’re eating meals-ready-to-eat,and covered in dirt, you forget aboutthis side of being a Soldier,” he said.“It is nice to put on the uniform andget all dressed up; get reminded thatyou are more than just a warrior,that you are that member ofsociety that the public looks upto. It is a really good reminder,and it feels good to be here.”The Avalanche defeatedthe Blues 5-3.

Under the CLEI, police officers — bothmilitary and civilian — have begun to institute amore proactive approach in engaging the public byasking three to four questions based on the PriorityInformation Requirement sheet each patrol receivesduring its shift. Patrols target areas such as theExchange, Expresses and housing areas where theycan engage community members and ask targetedquestions to gain their impressions of crime on FortCarson and what DES can do as law enforcementofficials to improve services and better serve thecommunity. The intent of the PIR is to activelyengage residents and refrain from asking “Yes”or “No” questions. A question can be as simpleas “What housing villages require more MPfoot patrols?” followed by “What time and dayof the week would best address this need?” TheCLEI has been successful so far and gives a betterpicture on where DES needs to focus its attention.This type of approach has enabled DES tobetter address issues that crime statistics alonecould not provide in real time.FireRegardless of recent weather, spring is here.Traditionally, people mend their winter cabin feverwith spring cleaning.

Doug Ball2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team,4th Infantry DivisionIt seems that there is a plethora of thingsthat are bad for your heart. Most likely if there issomething believed to not be bad for your hearttoday, a study will come out next year thatshows it is indeed bad for your heart.Even if it used to be bad for your heart, butnow it is OK, a study will come out next yearthat shows it is once again bad for your heart.Eggs? Bad for your heart. Salt? Bad for yourheart. Stress? Sitting on an airplane? How aboutsitting on an airplane, stressed, eating eggs withsalt on them? All bad for your heart.Fortunately, I’m not here to give you medicaladvice. You’ll need to talk to your doctor about yourphysical heart. However, I do know that there arethings that are bad for your spiritual heart, and Iam qualified to dispense spiritual prescriptions.“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures onEarth, where moth and rust destroy and wherethieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselftreasures in heaven, where neither moth or rustdestroys and where thieves do not break in andsteal. For where your treasure is, there your heartwill be also.” (Matthew 6:19-20)The point of this passage is pretty clear: too muchfocus on the stuff of this world is bad for your heart.Please don’t worry that this will devolve into a “sendyour checks and money orders to …” type of thing —God owns the cattle on a thousand hills, and I’m paidby the government — we don’t need your money.God is concernedabout where your heartis for your own good.If your heart is focusedon temporary treasurethat gets moldy andfalls apart, then yourheart will get moldyand fall apart. Ifyour heart isfocused oneternal treasurethat neverfades, yourheart willnever fade.That’s thegoal of theGod-orientedlife — a heartthat is focusednot on thethings of thisworld, but onthe world to come.If our heart is there, it will remain healthy andincorruptible, and will continue to grow strong inlove for God and love for neighbor.We can choose to do this because we know thatGod has an amazing heart of love for us, and willprovide all that we need, so that we don’t have tofocus on and worry about it. Later in Matthew 6, weare reminded when it comes to material necessities,such as food and clothing, “your heavenly Fatherknows that you need them.” We are free to “seekfirst his kingdom and his righteousness, and allthese things will be given to you as well.”So don’t worry this week — it’s bad foryour heart. Don’t stress yourself chasing thetreasures of this world — it’s bad for yourheart. Instead, focus on spreading the samelove to others that God has shown to you —that’s good for your heart.“For whereyour treasureis, there yourheart will bealso.”— Matthew 6:20Focusonworldlystuffbadforheart
29April 26, 2013 — MOUNTAINEERStory and photo byWalt JohnsonMountaineer staffSometimes reaching to achievea major milestone can lead a personto even greater accomplishments.That is the case for EstellaJuarez, a contracting specialistwith the Mission InstallationContracting Command’s FortCarson Contracting Office.Juarez began an effort toget into shape four years agowhile stationed in Germany becauseshe wanted to participate in theCamino de Santiago, or the Way ofSt. James, pilgrimage across Spain.Juarez knew that her physicalcondition would be the biggestobstacle to complete the pilgrimage.She has since dropped 65 pounds.“I really wanted to do the walkfour years ago ... I saw a number ofthings that talked about the race,but it didn’t seem feasible to me totake on an event like that in thephysical condition I was in,” she said.“But the idea stuck in my head ... sothis year I’m going to go and do it.”The four-year odyssey to preparefor the pilgrimage hasn’t beeneasy for Juarez. She said she had todedicate herself to losing as muchweight as possible and get fit enoughto walk across Spain.When Juarez first told herson about doing the event, he wasconcerned because he witnessed thestrain hikes put on her body whenshe was overweight. She assuredhim that she would get in shape tocomplete the journey.“When I began to train toget the weight off, I was actually soembarrassed because I felt I had goneso far off the wagon, and I didn’tknow where I wanted to start to getback into shape,” Juarez said. “Iremember looking at myself in themirror and feeling like I was so fargone; so far out of shape that therewas nothing I could do about it.“I wanted to go to the gym butI had to get in shape first. Then Iremembered I heard once thatsomeone said ‘you don’t have to begreat to start, but you have to startin order to be great,’ and that is whatI use for motivation,” Juarez said.She said staying faithful to herdesire to get in better shape played alarge role in her getting ready to takeon the biggest challenge she has facedsince losing 65 pounds and is confidentshe is ready to complete her mission.Photo by Walt JohnsonFort Carson Familymember MarqueWilliams, 44, boltsaround the right endand races to theend zone to score atouchdown during youthfootball action, Saturdayat Memorial Park inColorado Springs.

32 MOUNTAINEER — April 26, 2013Mountaineer Athlete of the WeekPhoto by Walt JohnsonEdwin RiveraIntramural volleyball playerHow long have you played volleyball?I have played since high school, growing up in Puerto Rico. Ireceived a scholarship to play volleyball in college. Since I have beenin the Army, I have been on the All-Army volleyball teams, and I havecoached volleyball while in the Army. While I was stationed in Kentucky,I also coached high school volleyball, and I am currently coachingvolleyball at Big House Sports in Colorado Springs. I have also playedbeach volleyball.Why did beach volleyball make such a difference in your life?I actually got hooked on volleyball more from playing beach volleyballthan I did regular volleyball. I like the idea that it was me and anotherguy and we either do it well or we didn’t do well during the games.What would you consider your favorite moment in volleyball?I coached my daughter’s team when she playeds volleyball, and mybiggest thrill was watching her win a championship. It was definitelymy favorite moment in volleyball, seeing that she has been able to takewhat I have passed onto her and achieve such a great moment.What haven’t you done in volleyball you wished had done?When I was younger, I dreamed of being an Olympic volleyball player,but now that I am a 43-year-old man; that goal is probably somethingI won’t be able to reach.People who don’t know me would be surprised to know that …I play volleyball. I am a command sergeant major and I normally don’tleave my office until 7:30 p.m., so a lot of my troops would be surprisedto know that I have the time to play volleyball. They normally only seeme when we are doing physical training.NEED AN ESCAPE?Look no farther thanManitou Springs!Nestled in the foot of Pikes Peak, Manitou Springsis the perfect place to escape from your everydayroutine.

It’s Rosemount, the John andMargaret Thatcher mansion, in Pueblo.The mansion has been featured inThe Home and Garden TV channel’s“Christmas Castles” and Art andEntertainment’s “American Castles.”The elegant home took two yearsto construct. Completed in 1893, themansion has 37 rooms, 24,000 squarefeet of floor space and two largeporches or verandas. The mansionoccupies a complete city block andis surrounded by shrubs, gigantictrees and sweeping lawns.A nearby 6,000 square-footcarriage house provided a placefor carriages, harnesses, horses andhay. It also had a toolroom, washroomand an extra large harness room thatserved as a smoking room for maleservants. The carriage house also hadan apartment for the attendant.A greenhouse that providedthe family’s flowers and producewas between the carriage houseand the mansion.Wellknown architect HenryHudson Holly, who’d built ThomasEdison’s house and laboratory inNew Jersey, designed Rosemount.This wasn’t his first mansion inPueblo — he had already designedand built a Victorian-style mansionfor John Thatcher’s brother andbusiness partner, Mahlon Thatcher.Holly designed Rosemount andits furnishings as a package.

Waterwas distributed through a gravitysystem from a large tank in the attic.Lights were wired for both electricityand gas as the Pueblo electric plantclosed down early.Closets were designed oneabove the other, so the closets couldbe converted into an elevator shaftat a later date.Rosemount has a large dining roomthat could seat many guests.

He latermoved to Pueblo, setting up a storethere. His brother later joined him.The town of Pueblo had its startas a trading post in the 1840s,when the U.S. and Mexico border wasthe Arkansas River.As Pueblo had no bank, localcitizens asked the Thatchers to keeptheir valuables in their store safe.Eventually, the Thatchers startedPueblo’s first bank in 1871.Pueblo began to prosper whenGen. William Palmer, founder ofColorado Springs, extended theDenver and Rio Grande Railroadto Pueblo. When silver, gold andvaluable minerals were discoveredin western Colorado, Palmerbegan to expand his railroad westto reach the mines.Needing a source of steel forconstructing the rails, Palmer starteda steel mill in Pueblo.As Pueblo prospered, eleganthouses and public buildings werebuilt.
