As if General Babbitt, a fellow aircraft maintenance officer, weren’t already my favorite Air Force 4-star General.
Just how cool is that........
....and as an even more special treat, watch it til the end, then you’ll see where you can click on a clip of Jimmy and Stevie Ray Vaughn playing “Pipeline” on a single double-neck guitar.
Jaw-dropping. Just doesn’t get any better than that.
Pat Gamble played guitar for The Shifters, 1962 1963 in Lakewood, Washington. He retired as an AF four-star, became president of Alaskan Railroad and then president of University of Alaska. He also is a great patriot and very nice fellow. General Babbitt should also be singled out for really beating the odds. There have been very, very few four stars in the AF that were not rated pilots or navigators. Babbitt retired in 2000. Note the color of his hair. I know a substantial number of AF senior officers almost all have one thing in common their hair is white as snow.
