April 2018 – Month of the Military Child

As the largest provider of military family services, our team knows better than anyone how important it is to support military children. And, there’s no better time than April to recognize and appreciate military children for their service and sacrifice.

The Military Child Education Coalition (MCEC) has deemed April the Month of the Military Child because in their own way, military-connected children serve, too. Did you know that military-connected children tend to move six to nine times during their school-age years? These frequent moves naturally present on-going challenges as well as the added stress of family separations and life transitions.

The well-being of all military children and youth depends on a strong, consistent network of supportive adults. Parents, teachers, mentors, and role models play a pivotal role in the life of a military child.

You can make a difference in the life of a military child by seeking opportunities to acknowledge their sacrifice, volunteering for organizations that support them, and recognizing their contribution to the nation.

Sincerely,

Geoffrey J. Deutsch

President

Construction on the 10th floor will commence Tuesday, March 27

The 1st phase of construction will be the new IT/LAN room (on the 10th floor). It is the only room on the 10th floor that will be done during phase 1, to ensure that the LAN room is ready upon the completion of phase 2. Phase 2 will be the 10th floor expansion space for staff to use while the remaining construction is completed.

Demolition in the current distribution room will begin Tuesday, March 27. Once demo begins, construction workers will be onsite during the hours of 5:00 am to 1:00 pm. The construction may be disruptive to employees that work near the distribution room. Please coordinate any temporary work locations with your supervisor.

The distribution room snack machine, supplies, postage and fax machine will be relocated:

  • The snack machine has temporarily been relocated to the 10th floor kitchen. Upon completion of the expansion space, the snack machine will be relocated to the new café area.
  • The supplies in the distribution room will be temporarily relocated to the tall dark closets across from office, S1035. The postage machine and fax machine will be relocated to S1013.
  • The large printer will not be operational during phase 1 due to the power requirements, beginning Thursday, March 1.
  • Employees on the 10th floor will need to print their documents to Sharp printer 6240, located across from office S1033.
  • If you run into complications remapping your documents to Sharp printer 6240 please contact GetIT@AFSC.com.
  • The printer will go back to its original location upon completion of the IT/LAN room.
  • Upon receiving the projected completion date of the IT/LAN room you will be notified.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the construction please contact GetFacilities@AFSC.com. Check out a video of our wall smashing ceremony below.








Hidden In Plain Sight

ASACS hosted a community prevention project called Hidden In Plain Sight in the Landstuhl community on February 13, 2018. Clinical Supervisors Dillon and Allison Welliver (pictured above) worked with their local prevention working group to identify a community need based from parent requests. Dillon assisted with the USAG Rheinland Pfalz ASAP to create an amusing and shocking scavenger hunt in a life-sized exhibit of a mock teenager's bedroom with red flags to indicate alcohol or drug use. Participants and parents were challenged to find drug safe stashes, controlled substances, or other commonly abused household items.

Allison Welliver (Clinical Supervisor for Bavaria) was an event presenter. ASACS, including our Air Force colleagues, gave a briefing about adolescent drug and alcohol trends and mitigating factors for parents. Great job to the ASACS team for getting creative to help educate the community on a requested need.
