Green Dot Training

Have you taken your annual Green Dot training? This is a mandated annual training to gain awareness and prevention of interpersonal violence, to include sexual assault, domestic and inter-personal violence, and suicide. You have two choices for your training. If you completed the Green Dot training last year, you only need to take the 2018 GD Refresher training. If you have never taken the training, you need to take the initial training. This year’s theme is “Lots of people X Small behaviors = Big Impact.”

Sign up for your training now at the AF Green Dot SharePoint site, or call the Violence Prevention Integrators at 480-1422.


Have you had a Green Dot moment? A time when you stopped some type of violence from occurring, or a time that you witnessed something and thought about taking action? The 86th Airlift Wing Violence Prevention Implementers would like to hear your Green Dot moment for possible publication in the future. Please send your Green Dot Moment or story to Glen.corlin@us.af.mil or joseph.black.14@us.af.mil

New process, new hours

The Ramstein Visitor Control Center recently changed processes on issuing passes. The VCC now issues passes with a scannable barcode. These passes are valid for one to three days and may be used at any KMC Air Force or KMC Army installation. Any request longer than three days will require customers to receive a long-term pass. Customers should understand with the new process, waiting times may be longer than usual.

The VCC changed its operating hours. It opens at 6 a.m. and closes at 10 p.m., seven days a week. After hours, customers may still sign in guests at the west gate. The sponsor must be registered in IACS to sign in visitors. Furthermore, ID card holders who forget their ID may also be searched in IACS and be granted base access.
