    I would like to take this opportunity to thank all personnel that participated in the America Shield Exercise this past week. Our members took time off from their busy schedules to attend part or all of this week long exercise. It was an overwhelming success, and our customer, the United States Army was very impressed with our performance. Thank you for your hard work and efforts.

Ohio Wing SAR/EVAL Success

posted Aug 20, 2014, 2:16 PM by David Allen


     I would like to take this opportunity to express my thoughts and gratefully acknowledge some of the people who have spent the last 10 or so months training and preparing for our SAR/EVAL. First, we did very well as we were de-briefed by the USAF Evaluators. Lt Col Dick Neuwirth, Lt Col Mike Bodnarik, Lt Col Tom Snell, Lt Col Jerry Pearsall, Lt Col Veronica Neuwirth, Lt Col Wayne Shanks, Major Patrick Kelly, Major Paul Siglock, Major Jim Himes, Major Bill Macek, Captain Chris Kovacs, Captain Anita Heilman, Captain John Jackson, Captain Wendell Meade,  just to name a few performed admirably. I realize that this was a team effort, and unfortunately I cannot name all of you in just one e-mail. I also want to thank the GLR personnel that were on hand, along with the INWG people and Lt Col Sheila Scerny of MIWG.  
     This e-mail alone cannot express my thanks to the Ground Teams, and our SAR dog "Sawyer" and Air Crews, along with KYWG that supported our efforts.
Mission Base Staff was exceptional. Again, this was truly a team effort.
     I would like to ask you to take a few days off to "decompress" before we start back to our continuing efforts for the future. This is just the beginning!
