162nd Wing welcomes new honorary commander

TUCSON, Ariz. – Chief Master Sgt. Leslie Tyree, 162nd Wing fire chief, demonstrates the proper technique for sliding down a fire pole to the Wing’s newest Honorary Commander, Ron Garan July 9. Garan is the chief pilot at World View, a Tucson-based company that plans to operate commercial near-space flight for passengers as well as scientific research via balloon. Garan retired from active duty Air Force, and toured the base to get a feel for the Air National Guard and what a drill weekend is like. According to Tyree, the 162nd Wing’s fire house is one of only a handful in the Air National Guard with a fire pole. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Staff Sgt. Gregory Ferreira)
