Expertise[edit]

Organizational history of United States Air Force and predecessors:

Experience[edit]

  • more than 20 years of active service with US Air Force
  • Served at headquarters of two Major Air Commands in the plans function
  • Approved unit histories as squadron commander
  • Served as squadron historical officer

Memberships[edit]

Goal[edit]

That no United States Air Force unit's Wikipedia article will ever say it was deactivated. And don't think you can avoid me with de-activated, Dea-ctivated might be overlooked, though.

Wiki Articles

Wiki Articles[edit]

As of 20 February 2016, Wiki says I have created 2018 articles. However, almost 1700 are redirects and 23 are disambiguation pages, and others are really moves of articles to new names.

  • Rescues

A number of USAF articles have been deleted or tagged for deletion due to WP:COPYVIO. I've rescued or restored the following articles by rewriting them.

4th Fighter Wing 56th Fighter Wing 63d Air Expeditionary Wing 66th Air Base Wing 71st Flying Training Wing 96th Test Wing

My usual goal for USAF articles is to get existing articles to B level. I did manage to get a Good Article rating for: Symbol support vote.svg 563d Rescue Group
