Remembering you this week and every year as I lead my Air Force Airmen and IMAs. Your mentorship, leadership and wisdom was as important to me in 2001 at Vandenberg as it is today at my new assignment leading Law Enforcement operations. You may be gone, but you are never forgotten! Everytime my family and I here Barry Manilow we smile!
