  • 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.
