U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Steven Rice, the deputy commander of the 182nd Maintenance Group, gives retired U.S. Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Homer Wells, a former chief of maintenance with the 182nd Tactical Air Support Group, an aircraft chock signed by the group during a ceremony honoring his service in Peoria, Ill., Aug. 24, 2017. Wells enlisted in 1947 and retired in 1984 with 37 years of service with the Illinois Air National Guard. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Tech. Sgt. Lealan Buehrer) Airmen honor chief of maintenance’s legacy
It was 1947 when Chief Master Sgt. Homer Wells enlisted with the 169th Fighter Squadron to work on F-51 Mustangs — the same year Jackie Robinson signed with the Brooklyn Dodgers, Chuck Yeager broke the sound barrier and the Department of Defense was established. When Wells retired 37 years later, the chief of maintenance had worked on or supervised 11 different aircraft in a unit that underwent four re-designations, received its first Air Force Outstanding Unit Award and would soon earn a rating of “excellent” during its first Operational Readiness Inspection.
