WASHINGTON –
While Armygenerals testified on the progress of theGlobal War on Terrorism last week, Sgt.Maj. of the Army Kenneth O. Preston wasfighting for Soldiers on another front –their quality of life.“We recruit Soldiers and retainfamilies,” Preston said during openingstatements to members of theSubcommittee on Military Quality of Life and Veterans Affairs Feb. 16 onCapitol Hill.“Our servicemen and women are atthe forefront of change and thissubcommittee can help them,” said NewYork Rep.

questioned Preston and the other threesenior enlisted leaders, Sgt. Maj. of theMarine Corps John L. Estrada, MasterChief Petty Officer of the Navy TerryScott and Chief Master Sgt. of the AirForce Gerald R. Murray on variousissues. The general consensus waschildcare and housing were immediateissues to address in the military.All the leaders reported thousands intheir branches waiting to receive on-postchildcare.“It’s a huge challenge,” Preston said.“The demographics show most spousesin the Army work. And with both parentsworking the need is high for childcare.”With housing, Preston said even with thebasic allowance for housing increase, theArmy is seeing more of an increase inSoldiers living on posts thanks to privatization.A question a subcommittee memberasked was about deployments.“There is tension with back-to-back

WASHINGTON --
A new badge recognizingtroops who have been in combat will debut inMarch, Lt. Gen. F. L. Hagenbeck, Army DeputyChief of Staff, G-1, said today.The Close Combat Badge will recognize specificArmor, Cavalry, Field Artillery and Combat EngineerSoldiers, colonel and below, serving as infantry inunits purposefully reorganized to routinely conductinfantry-unique close combat missions andpersonally present and under fire while conductingthose types of missions.The way the badge will look has not yet beendetermined. Although it will begin to be awarded inMarch, Hagenbeck said it will probably be autumnbefore the badge appears in clothing sales stores.Major generals will have the award authorityon the new badge.Hagenbeck said the badge is designed torecognize the efforts of Soldiers in units whichhave been reorganized and used as infantry, andwill be retroactive to Sept. 11, 2001.“This notion came from commanders in thefield. They said, very specifically, that we’vereorganized, for example, field artillery units andcreated infantry-like formations. They’remirroring what our 11B infantry do, they shouldget the CIB, or we need to create a Close CombatBadge,” Hagenbeck said.He said the Army convened a panel of retiredSoldiers, including several generals, to determinewho would qualify for such a badge, and whetherit was needed.“There was a lot of discussion, but there wasconsensus that these Soldiers ought to berecognized,” he said.The general said the goal was to recognizethese Soldiers without any impact on the 60-yeartradition of the CIB.“It’s a highly emotional issue,” Hagenbeck said. “In the past, you could, for example, havea forward artillery observer attached to aninfantry unit. He’s on the same patrols and he isgetting shot at by the same enemies, but he’s noteligible for the CIB.“He wouldn’t be eligible for the CCB, either.It’s strictly for those people who we’ve pulledout of their tanks and away from their guns andused to perform infantry missions.He said the combat patch worn by all Soldiersin a combat zone will remain the visual symbolfor Soldiers who have served in a combat theater.The CCB is awarded only to those who meet itsspecific criteria.“Everyone is in danger on today’s 360-degreebattlefield,” Hagenbeck said. “This recognizesthose deliberately planned offensive combatmissions designed to close with the enemy anddestroy or capture them.”

It asked for fans’ support, butnot for a product available in stores. Itsimply asked for you to pray forSoldiers, sailors, airmen, CoastGuardsmen and Marines.The number 72 ‘Pray 4 OurTroops’ Chevrolet was driven byveteran driver Donnie Neuenberger.

return to racing following histreatment for Follicular Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. According toinformation on his Web site, he is“…currently in partial remission andwill continue a maintenance programover the next two years.”P4OT.com is a grassrootsorganization dedicated to encouragingprayer and support for Americanmilitary forces around the globe.“You get this busy world that we’rein, and we can forget that we haveloved ones, friends and familyoverseas,” said Neuenberger.“Anytime you can do anything in aforum like this to help remind peoplethat we have so many peopleprotecting this country, you just can’tlose with that.”I think this is very important. I’m100 percent behind everything ourmilitary does. For me, driving this caris an honor.”Neuenberger credited both hisexperience with cancer and hispersonal desire to recognize thesacrifices of military men and womenas motivating him to stay focused.“I can leave heretomorrow as long as I knowthat I gave 110 percent. Iwould never quit. I am veryfortunate to be able to dothis,” said Neuenberger. “Ibelieve that you can doanything you want to if youput your mind to it and you’rewilling to sacrifice enough.”It would be great to endthis by telling you that Neuenberger’scar finished the day in Victory Lane, butthat didn’t happen. His Chevy sufferedengine problems and had to drop out of the race just a few laps shy of the finish.You might be tempted to say histeam lost the race, but you’d bewrong. During its 100 laps around thetrack, the car’s distinctive logo wasseen by thousands of NASCAR fansin the stands. And millions morewatched on TV.A small group of people spent a lotof their own money to encourage folksto pray for troops like you and me.And if I know NASCAR fans,they did.

WASHINGTON –
The nominee tobecome the next commander of the U.S.Pacific Command acknowledged thechallenges that face him in the Asia-Pacific theater should he be confirmedto that position.“If confirmed, I intend to work hardto establish and nurture the personal andnation-to-nation relationships that Iconsider essential to the security of theregion,” said Navy Adm. William J. Fallonin addressing the Senate Armed ServicesCommittee on Feb. 15. “I recognize thatthe sheer size, vast distances andimmense populations of the Asia Pacificregion add a unique challenge to ouroperations in that theater, but I’m readyto get under way.”One of the challenges in the region is theKorean nuclear situation. Fallon said it shouldbe addressed in two ways. The first is tomaintain a deterrent posture while signalingsupport for South Korea. The second isfacilitating diplomatic efforts.Restarting six-party talks or workingdifferent initiatives from the United Statesor through other nations in the area are

appropriate courses of action, he said.“Clearly, something as disturbing in notonly the nuclear revelation, or assertion,but the fact that the North Koreans havebeen exporting their missile technologywhich may provide the means to deliverthese types of weapons is certainlysomething of high concern,” he said. “Ilook forward, if confirmed, to engagewith our allies in the area and to our otherexperts, in government and out, to learnas much as we can so that I can be of some use in this.”China is another point of interest withinPACOM’s area of responsibility. And one thatFallon and committee chairman Virginia Sen.John Warner agree should not be ignored.The committee’s interest is based onknowledge of China’s expandingconventional and strategic military capabilitiesas well as the mainland’s relationship withTaiwan, Warner said.Fallon said that despite the challengesthat lie ahead, he is ready to take commandof PACOM if confirmed.“There is much for me to learn, but Ieagerly look forward to working with oursuperb Soldiers, sailors, airman andMarines and our friends and allies shouldI be confirmed,” he said.Now serving as commander of FleetForces Command and U.S. Atlantic Fleetin Norfolk, Va., Fallon would replaceAdm. Thomas B. Fargo as commanderof PACOM.Fallon earned his commission in 1967and has served in several commandpositions, including as commander of Battle Force 6th Fleet during OperationDeliberate Force over Bosnia in 1995.
STD few can pronounce infects 5.5 million Americans annually
FORT LEE, Va. —
Human papillomavirus is one of themost common sexually transmitted diseases yet it is the leastknown STD. About 20 million Americans are infected withHPV and about 5.5 million people are infected yearly,according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.Certain types of HPV cause cervical cancer and yet thereis little public awareness of the virus, unlike AIDS awareness,even though it is equally deadly.Of the 100 HPV types that have been identified, 30 of them infect the genital area.Most of the infections cause no symptoms and go away ontheir own, but HPV is a public health concern to the CDC becausepersistent infection can cause cervical cancer in women.Cervical cancer screening using the Pap test and treatmentof precancerous cervical abnormalities have resulted in asignificant decrease in deaths in the United States.However, the CDC reports that an estimated 12,200 womendevelop cervical cancer and 4,100 women die from it.In 2003, the CDC also estimated that 11,498 women werediagnosed with AIDS and 4,736 of those died.The number of women who are diagnosed and die fromAIDS nearly equals those who develop cervical cancer and die.Yet Americans are largely ignorant of HPV and fewmediums seem interested in raising awareness.For example, the Army News Service search enginegenerates 43 articles from its electronic archives with theentry “HIV,” but fails to generate a single article with theentry “HPV.”The Walter Reed Army Medical Center search enginegenerated more than 200 links with “HIV,” but only 12 linkswith “HPV.” Educating people, and women especially,becomes critical when one considers that HPV cannot beprevented through condom use.Transmission of HPV occurs through contact withinfected genital area skin. HPV infection in women can occuron the cervix, vagina, vulva, inner thighs, and perianal area.For the male, infection can occur on the penis, urethra,scrotum, inner thighs and perianal area.In June 2000, the National Institutes of Health produced areport titled, Scientific Evidence on Condom Effectiveness
By Sgt. Jorge Gomez
Army News Service
for Sexually Transmitted Disease Prevention.It reported favorably in preventing the transmission of HIV,but for HPV the panel concluded that there was no evidencethat condom use reduced the risk of HPV infection.The CDC concluded that “even consistent and correct useof condoms would not be expected to offer completeprotection from HPV infection because infections also mayoccur on sites not covered or protected by a condom,”according to the January 2004 Report to Congress: Preventionof Genital Human Papillomavirus Infection.For women, the first indication of HPV comes from anabnormal Pap test which examines the cells in the cervix. AnHPV DNA test is then used to determine what type of HPVthe woman has contracted. Currently, there is no availableHPV test for men.To prevent genital HPV infection and cervical cancer, theCDC recommends the following:- No genital contact with another individual.- For those who choose to be sexually active, a long-term,monogamous relationship with an uninfected partner is thebest strategy, but it is difficult to determine whether a partneris currently infected.- Reducing the number of sexual partners and choosing apartner less likely to be infected.- Regular cervical cancer screening for all sexually active women.
