I've been coined by lots of folks, including SecAF. My most treasured coin is from a Chief. They run the world.
One day, I'll grow up, and keep my stuff squared away, and talk to God and Generals, and be a Chief. God and Generals willing.
Our troop has 4 boys currently on active duty, 3 of them eagles. My oldest son in the Marines, One is a reactor operator aboard the Reagan, one in the Army stationed in DC, and one in the Coast Guard in Alaska. The Scoutmaster is an active duty Lt Col in the Army.
Airman 1st Class Ian Zerby, now 19, is an emergency management journeyman with the 379th Expeditionary Civil Engineering Squadron here.
Ironically, his former Boy Scout leader and mentor, Chief Master Sgt. David Tarnowski, is also stationed in the area. He's the chief flight engineer for the 746th Expeditionary Airlift Squadron.
Wow. It always surprises me to see how young these guys look!
That's a neat story. His mentor did good and must be very proud of him!
