									                  OPERATION WALK FOR FREEDOM
                   & WALK TO IRAQ AND BACK
1. OWF/WTIB is a unit program, supported by USACHPPMEUR, and offered in deploying communities
across USAREUR. IMA-E/OWF is designed to support family members and FRGs of deployed soldiers
through a holistic wellness program that enhances the mind, body and spirit of the Army Family by walking
miles in support of their loved one while deployed either to Iraq or Afghanistan. By promoting family member
wellness and physical fitness, they become better equipped to manage the stress of deployment. In doing so,
the Soldier is able to concentrate on mission.

2. The key to program success is support from the Rear Detachment and deploying unit. Support is provided
through an MOA between the community, its supporting agencies and the unit deploying. The unit provides
support through their FRG phone/email tree, advertisements, coordinated unit activities that include activity
miles and coordination of a unit recognition ceremony for the spouses that completed the OWF/WTIB
challenge.

The unit is most successful by publishing an OPORD to all rear detachment leaders outlining the support
provide to the spouses, recommendations for unit events and FRAA responsibility for collecting miles of
participating FRGs. Examples of both an OPORD and MOA are included in this guide. The units/FRGs also
play a key role in assuring that participants are aware of key assessment dates, special activity events and
plans for incentive distribution at the end of the program. Communication is key to any deployment, and
especially the success of a program like OWF/WTIB. Units/FRGs are essential in the role of disseminating
the information put out by the USACHPPMEUR program manager to the participants in the program.

3. The distance used from Germany to Iraq and back is 4,000 miles, and 3,000 miles is used for Afghanistan.
Participants are responsible for tracking miles or steps taken each day in order to achieve this goal.
Individuals participate solo or in teams, often coordinated through FRGs. Upon enrollment, participants
receive a pedometer, log book and details about the mileage rewards program.

4. How to receive miles: Participants can walk, bike, swim, run, etc.; and a 15 minute block of physical
activity is used as 1 mile for individuals who use aerobics. For participants choosing to utilize a pedometer, 6
miles will be awarded for gaining 10,000 steps each day. Bonus Miles! Plan a year-long Wellness goal as an
individual! Complete your year long Wellness goal and earn 2,000 individual bonus miles! Double Miles:
Awarded for participation in community fitness activities (Run/Walks), Volksmarches and other military
marches!

5. Participants receive a fitness assessment and wellness goal contract at the bi-annual Civilian Fitness
Program assessments in their community. (March and September)

6. Participants will receive a mid-way assessment at the 6-month mark to track progress for their fitness
assessment and Wellness goal. At this time participants will receive their next 6-month activity journal at that
time.

7. At the end of the year, there will be an awards ceremony or other designated event recognizing all
participants who completed the program. Incentives vary by community, but are used to gain data on
participants and encourage program completion.

8. The first iteration of WTIB just finished with return of 1ID from Iraq, and SETAF just began OWF for troops
deployed to Afghanistan. 1AD will participate in support of troops deploying to Iraq this year. In addition,
various V Corps units throughout USAREUR have also joined in the OWF/WTIB march to wellness!

9. Not only is the program essential for fostering esprit de corps in the rear detachment and FRGs, but is it
key in enhancing healthy lifestyle behavior patters as well as stress management of the trying deployment
period. Data derived from previous iterations of the program show significant improvement in weight, blood
pressure, resting heart rate, body fat, body mass index, flexibility and cardiovascular recovery rate. Finally,
most participants in the program report that OWF/WTIB helps them to deal with stress more effectively.
Clearly, OWF/WTIB is an example of how a tailored wellness program can enhance a targeted population’s
wellness, even during difficult times! The figure below represents the results from the first iteration of WTIB.

       If utilizing pedometer, each 10,000 steps per day will equal 6 miles of activity.
   Activity can be measure as any mileage of physical activity completed. For physical
   activity that cannot be measured in miles, each 15 minute block of activity equals 1 mile.
   Wellness related classes can also be used for mileage as well as volunteer hours and other
   group events. Each 15 minute block of wellness/volunteer activity equals 1 mile.
   Double miles can be accrued through participation in Wellness Center sponsored
   physical activity events or other designated events.

I agree to participate in the 12 month “Operation Walk for Freedom” wellness program, provided by
this installation in support of deploying units and their families. Beginning 1 February 2005,
individuals and FRG’s with deploying family members, may begin tracking the miles of physical
activity accumulated each day. From beginning the program, the individual and/or FRG will have
until 1 Mar 06 in order to meet the different mileage goals. Physical activity can be tracked by miles
walked, run, swimming, biking or other designated activity. Participants are not limited to any
specific activity, but are on the honor system to track the amount of daily activity accumulated.
Mileage can also be tracked through wearing a pedometer throughout the day. Participants getting
10,000 steps a day will be awarded 6 miles for that day (roughly 1500 steps equals a mile).
Participants wishing to receive a pedometer (while supplies last) should attend the fitness assessments
coordinated in conjunction with the Civilian Fitness Program every six months. Fitness assessments
are free for anyone wishing to attend and are good bench marks for setting year long wellness goals.

    i.  The Iraq Program:
        2,000 miles to Iraq from the 417th BSB (5.5 miles each day)
        4,000 miles round trip (11 miles each day or 5.5 miles each day plus completion of wellness
    goal)

    ii. The Afghanistan Program:
        3200 miles to Afghanistan 5.5 miles each day plus the completion of a wellness goal.

    Individuals may choose to do the miles themselves, or pool miles with their FRG. Miles should
    be reported monthly to the Fitness Coordinator. For participants choosing to utilize a pedometer,
    6 miles will be awarded for gaining 10,000 steps each day.

    iv. Double Miles: Double miles will be awarded for sanctioned community & group events.
Participants will double the miles for the events on their log when recording miles accumulated for
day.

    v. Optional Wellness Goal Miles: During the fitness assessments, participants have the option to
sign up to complete a wellness goal for the year. Participants will fill out the Wellness Goal at the
end of the contract that indicates the personal wellness goal and how the individual will record the
baseline measurement of success, a mid-way measurement of progress, and a final measurement of
completion of the goal. Individuals that are successful with their year-long wellness goal will be
awarded 2,000 bonus miles to be incorporated into their final tally.

     c. Participants who choose to participate in the Operation Walk for Freedom program should
plan to attend a fitness assessment to register. Local POC will be the Fitness Coordinator for
questions. The Wellness program will coordinate distribution of the Walking logs as well as the
pedometers that may be provided. Registering with the local POC will include being provided with a
pedometer and a Pre-walk, mid-term assessment (6 Months) and a Post-walk assessment (12 months)
that includes a weight check, blood pressure check, body fat assessment, heart rate assessment,
flexibility and cardiovascular step test. These will be provided in conjunction with the Civilian
Fitness Assessment dates in your community. Should participants wish to start tracking their miles
prior to receiving an assessment and pedometer, they will track their progress individually. However,
all participants are only allowed until 1 March 06 to complete the minimum miles for Operation Walk
for Freedom. Participants are responsible for tracking their miles/steps and providing documentation
to the program coordinator. There are a limited number of pedometers, if you wish to buy your own,
we will be happy to provide instruction on use, as well as the fitness assessments.
