CFC campaign begins Monday and The continues through Nov. 9. This year's theme is "Give From The Heart, Change Someone's World." The goal this year is $785,000, an increase from lat year's goal of $654,000. The higher goal is due in part to an increase in personnel, from more than 14.000 to over 16.000 federal employees. With the help of every one of you, the CFC committee and project officers are certain that not only will we attain our goal, but we will significantly exceed it. There are literally hundreds of ways to help make a positive change in another person's life, as you will see when you receive this year's booklet of approved charitable organizations. Additionally, you may choose to contribute directly to the relief efforts in New York City and Washington DC. Visit www.opm.govcfc for additional information. Like others, Leo Jacobs, the CFC coordinator for Utah and the southwest region, feels the need to help now in current relief efforts as well as support local needs for assistance. So, Leo has decided to double his annual contribution. While all of us may not be able to do the same, his action exemplifies the enduring spirit of giving. The CFC is our vehicle to support charities we believe in. Its tradition of commitment to the community through the selfless efforts of Federal employees, has its roots in the many charitable campaigns of the early 1960's.

As people walk by the pictures hanging on many of the Pentagon's walls, they walk just a little taller, proud to serve their country, knowing America's citizens support them. Maj. Tony Gatlin, Air Force military personnel division chief at the Pentagon, is one person grateful for the cheer. "It was gloomy around here for days," he said.

Amy Parr Air Force Print News WASHINGTON After the Sept. 11 attack on the Pentagon, people from ter-rori- st around the country picked up paper and pens to show their support to the military. Letters offering prayers, hepe, praise, thanks and encouragement were delivered to the Pentagon within days after the incidents. While all are different, each has a common theme: pride in America. An excerpt from one poem written by a student begins, "What will we do, they have all our fears. Will they take us as hostage and laugh at our tears? I say they won't for I know as a fact, America is strong and it's still intact." Another high school student wrote, "I will be thinking and praying for you.

No critical information should be discussed on a cell phone, he went on to say. Williamson said family members should also stop to consider if what they are talking about would be of interest to someone collecting information. "We all have a role in OPSEC, and that includes family members," he said. "Information such as the cancellation of leave or work schedules can provide the adversary with another piece of the overall puzzle he's trying to piece together." "It's everyone's job to protect their piece of the puzzle," he In light of recent events, Roche said that the Air Force has entered into an era in which it is compelled to rethink its defensive posture in a changed environment. "We must develop a strategy for a different era," he said. Although, he added, the recent world events have not changed his initial goals and initiatives since he took office as secretary of the Air Force. "(Recent events) do not change our priorities because as a contingency force, and as an expeditionary air and space force, we are already configured to deal with any contingencies that arise," Roche said. "We will continue our transformation into an even better force, with superb systems and leaders, as we contribute to this campaign." As the Air Force tries to look to the future, Roche discussed his top priorities and goals said. OPSEC also focuses on observable actions. According to Williamson, an adversary creates a profile by simply observing people's daily activities. People increase the value of that profile to the adversary if they are predictable with their actions, he said. The observable action (or indicator) becomes yet another piece of the overall information puzzle. If the adversary observes the same action carried out in the same way at the same time, then they can easily identify not only routine activities, but deviations as well, he said. "For example, if the same exact patrol route were followed at the same exact time every day, the patrol would quickly become predicable," Williamson said. "If the patrol were suddenly not there, that would be an indication of a change to the mission." If an action is random to begin with, the adversary is left guessing, and "that's the point of OPSEC," Williamson said. "OPSEC is important both on and off duty. We're all very proud of the work we do, but the particulars are not for everyone's ears," he said. "The adversary is real, he's listening, and he wants to know what you know."

Anthony n ing a need to bring the diversity of fundrais-in- g efforts under one umbrella. Federal employees created the CFC-on- e campaign, once a year. By allowing employees to select the organizations of their choice from a single brochure and to make their contributions through payroll deductions, the CFC opened wide the door to more opportunities for generous giving to literally hundreds of worthy causes. An Executive Order made the CFC a reality, and turned an innovative idea into a uniquely effective way for Federal employees to help those in need across our community and throughout the world. The CFC is the only authorized solicitation of employees in the Federal workplace on behalf of charitable organizations. It continues to be the largest and most successful workplace fundraising model in the world. Since our earliest days, we have shared especially with our neighboring communities the best life has to offer. CFC is a singular opportunity to continue this proud heritage. Within our region, last year's campaign was most successful, contributing $808,759, or more than 120 percent of our goal. Our participation rate, however, can be improved. Our aim is to give every employee an opportunity to participate. Let's make this year's expression of how much we care even more resounding than last year. for 2002. "I have four priorities (for fiscal 2002)," he said. " (The first is) people. We must be able to attract and retain the very best individuals to serve (in the Air Force). "(The second is) strategy. We must continue, or rebuild, a force structure that, when teamed in joint or combined operations, will be effective in keeping peace and preserving freedom in this century." he said. "(Next is) efficiency. We must accelerate our drive to become more modern and more efficient as an organization," Roche said. "The Air Force will never be a business, but it can be more business-lik"(Finally, the fourth priority is) innovation e. and the industrial base, (because the Air Force needs) to reform, in a constructive manner, (its) acquisition policies and processes so as to ensure innovation and competitive vibrancy within the defense industrial base," said. Roche added that promoting innovation within the defense industry will help ensure the Air Force acquires the technology necessary to maintain its position as the aerospace leader in the world. As the Air Force prepares for an uncertain future, Roche addressed Air Force family members directly affected by the recent tragedies, with airmen deploying to meet the president's call to duty. "First of all, our heartfelt prayers and condolences go out to the families and friends of each and every American struck down by these (tragic) assaults," he said. "It takes a full measure of patriotism, dedication, and sacrifice to do what the men and women of the Air Force are doing today, standing united with our sister services, backing our presihe, dent and formulating the appropriate response for the American people to seek justice to these unspeakable and shocking terrorist attacks on our nation's soil. Although our enemies haven't seen or felt our brand of resolve before now, they are about to learn." As the Air Force prepares for the future challenges ahead, Roche said, "I want all of you to know that, even as we mourn for our fallen countrymen, we will not be deterred from carrying out our global responsibility as America's expeditionary aerospace force power. We will continue to perform our noble work in the days ahead." o.
