Not even the king of Margaritaville, Jimmy Buffet, could compete with a two-star general when a tropical rock band halted its set to pay tribute to Maj. Gen. Ronald B. “Bruce” Miller with the Air Force song–island style, when he showed up in a Florida beach town with 15 Texans.
Attaining the rank of Chief Master Sergeant, the Air Force’s highest enlisted rank, is usually the pinnacle of an Airman’s career, but for Command Chief Master Sgt. Douglas C. Isaacks, a 20-year pararescueman, his career has been a daisy chain of successes leading to his rise to the top in the most-deployed, and only Reserve Rescue wing in the nation.
Congratulations to the following 27 Airmen who promote in the month of January. We look forward to seeing more of the great things you all accomplish in your Air Force career!
It’s not often you see those three-letter titles – A1C and Ph.D. – used to refer to the same person. As a matter of fact, only one-hundredth of one percent of the Air Force’s enlisted force from E-1 through E-9 possess a doctor of philosophy degree – that’s just 33 Airmen out of 259,190 currently on active duty.
