SUPPORT OUR HONORARY

CAPITAL WING MEMBER

 

COLONEL CHARLES E. MCGEE, USAF (RET)

 

OCTOBER 4 UPDATE: Colonel McGee completed 136 combat missions as part of the all-African American fighter pilot unit, the Tuskegee Airmen, during WWII. He ended his 30-year Air Force career, including WWII, Korea, and Vietnam, as a command pilot with over 6,100 total hours and 409 combat missions, a record that still stands. In March, the Secretary of the Air Force filed a recommendation for the honorary promotion of Colonel McGee. House amendments to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that would promote retired Air Force Colonel Charles E. McGee to Brigadier General failed.  The latest from Conference Actions is the House proposing a Section 599 revised language to the Senate Bill with specific language for the President to promote Colonel McGee. Almost there, just need resolved differences between Chambers!

If we want this to occur, and December 7, 2019 is Colonel McGee’s 100th Birthday, your Senator and Representative are on Thanksgiving break and may be holding "Town Hall" meetings. Go and ask that they support the his promotion by passing the NDAA. Find them at: https://www.govtrack.us/congress/members/map
