Three Community Wingmen were honored at the Air Force Ball on Oct. 24. They are Maj. Gen. (Ret.) Pat Condon and his wife, Judy, and Homer Cutrubus, a local businessman.
The three were honored at a private reception before the event, and will have their likenesses and contributions put on plaques to be hung in the Community Wingmen Hall of Fame in the Hill Aerospace Museum.
Remembering seven decades of service to our country Hill Air Force Base embarks upon the celebration of the year. The year 2010 commemorates the 70th anniversary of Hill AFB and the Year of the Air Force Family with the Air Force Ball.
We have come a long way since the beginning and are proud of where we came from.
The Air Force Ball is a formal civil-military event to celebrate the proud partnership and promote personal interaction and esprit de corps. The tradition began on Sept.18, 1947, when the United States Air Force was officially established as a separate military service. Most likely the first Air Force Ball was held in Washington, D.C., although other communities may very well have had one as well that year.
