52nd Ramstein Bazaar offers ‘A Year of Treasures’

by Shana Pittman Ramstein Bazaar publicity chair

If you have spent much time in any military community, you have probably heard about the mythical Ramstein Bazaar. When you meet someone who’s been and they start reminiscing about the hangars filled with treasures — colorful Polish pottery, vintage finds, and the wide selection of wines — they get a kind of wistful look of contentment and an air of longing about them. For the last 52 years, the annual Ramstein Bazaar has been a core event in the KMC, supporting every aspect of military life. To continue in this awesome tradition, we present the 52nd annual Ramstein Bazaar: “A Year of Treasures.”

It’s a rainy day in Germany, and people are driving down the autobahn to work. Suddenly, a glimmer of light flashes on the dashboard; the check engine light is on. Continuing the drive can be dangerous, but a local towing service fee may not be in the budget.

Different uniform, same school of leadership

by Airman 1st Class Lane Plummer 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

Amidst the halls and classrooms of the 86th Force Support Squadron’s Airman Leadership School, Airmen are immersed in a culture of their own as they develop their leadership skills. However, joining these Airmen is a uniform pattern, a cultural background and a service member from a branch different than their own.
