11 of 20 years in the Air Force were spent at Rhein Main AB. I was fortunate to work with the best group of airmen and officers ever assembled. As a "Team" (Command, Pax, ATOC, Fleet, etc.) we did more than anyone ever expected and did it so well we often set the standard for others to follow. Thank you for being the best leaders, workers and friends I ever met.

Bob McCoy Served entire Air Force Career in Air Transportation. During that 24 Year period met, made friends and worked with many transporters. Often wonder where and what those folk are doing now. Joined this club in hopes of maybe locating many of those old friends.
