The End of an Era

On 24 January 2008, the 102nd Fighter Wing closed its stellar chapter of flying and alert commitment with a simulated alert scramble performed by Wing Commander Colonel Anthony "KIMO" Schiavi and Major Dan "Nasty" Nash. A formal presentation followed with words that described the proud history of the 102nd FW and 101st FS.
The impressive display paid tribute to a world class organization.

The Final Presentation
A Solemn Reminder....


A very special thanks to the men and women of the 102nd FW and 101st FS, for their years of dedicated commitment in the defense of the United States of America.
I am confident that the tradition will continue with the 102nd Intelligence Wing.
