Gen Deppe retirement

Gen Deppe retirement

42 years of just "a little longer"

8/10/2009 - PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- The Beatles released "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" album. Hollywood's box office hits were, "The Graduate," "Bonnie and Clyde" and "Cool Hand Luke." Gasoline was 33 cents a gallon, movie tickets were $1.25, the average cost of a new home was $14,250 and a new car would cost around $2,750. That was 1967--the year Maj. Gen. Thomas Deppe, vice commander of Air Force Space Command, Peterson Air Force Base, Colo., attended boot camp at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas.

"At that time you were either in college or you got drafted," said General Deppe. "I had just dropped out of college, and then came my draft notice in the mail not too long after."

Convinced by a friend that the Air Force was the way to go, the young Thomas Deppe proceeded to the recruiting office to sign on the dotted line, with little knowledge of the positive impact that signature would have on his life.

"I had no plans on staying in the Air Force any longer than I had to," General Deppe said. "But as time went on and I made staff sergeant in less than four years, I thought, 'Well, why not stay in a little longer?' I already had a job that I liked, why would I quit it when I might get something on the outside I didn't like?"

That "little longer" became 42 years of military service. Putting his enlisted career behind him, General Deppe earned his commission in November 1977.

"It was an interesting switch," he said. "I went from having credibility with my job as a technical sergeant, to a brand new lieutenant with no credibility whatsoever."

General Deppe continued in the officer ranks with the intention of retiring as a captain. In fact, when it came time for him to pin on captain, 21 years of service had already passed. Captain Deppe continued on with his career. In March 1987, continuing to prove himself, he was selected for major below-the-zone, squelching, yet again, his intention to retire. He could have turned down the promotion and went ahead with his plans, but instead he chose to extend his commitment to the Air Force just "a little longer".

"It seems like every time I thought about it, I committed more and more to the Air Force," General Deppe said. "Every promotion requires you to stay in that position for a certain amount of time. I kept getting promoted, so I stayed in the Air Force."

The Air Force can only be thankful that General Deppe said "just a little longer", his solid commitment can be seen through his 42 years of service. Airmen can only be inspired by his commitment. It takes loyalty, dedication and determination. A sense of belonging, a family, a family of...Airmen is what General Deppe finds most rewarding.

This is what General Deppe had to say during his retirement interview:

What is your most enjoyable/rewarding part of your military career?
"You, the 'cream of the crop'...Airmen just like you are the reason I have enjoyed my military career and found it so rewarding, both enlisted and commissioned. I am proud to belong and will always.

What/who was your biggest influence while you served?
I had a boss, Col. Raymond "Hal" Cleveland; he was the director of intercontinental ballistic missile requirements. He mentored me more on officership and life than anyone else. He also is the person who's responsible for teaching me how to golf. I am forever indebted to him. Unfortunately, Hal passed away in the late 90's. I am sure where he is he can see me and what I'm doing...

What made you decide to be an officer?
You have to want to be an officer ... I wanted to be one. You have to be up to greater challenges in life. There are two kinds of prior enlisted officers: the really good and the really bad. I've known a few in the really bad category. In my case, I was not a very good first-term Airman; in fact, I was probably pretty lousy. I enlisted in the Air Force to avoid the draft, to get the education benefits and to get marketable skills.

Along the way, I realized all the fun you could have and that's why I re-enlisted. After the fun wore off, I realized I had to get serious about this, and I got sent to NCO prep school, which is now Airman Leadership School. It was the turning point in my career, because it made me realize just how important everything is. I don't care if you are a public affairs officer or a personnel Airman, or a security forces team member, or even the two-star general in charge of 20th Air Force, everyone of us has a very important role. I had an eye-opening experience. When I realized just how important this business is and just how much I liked it. As a result of this I became a prep school instructor part-time, and then I volunteered to be a recruiter and then attended Officer Training School.

Senior Airman Leonard E. Sherwood II handles administrative duties, files accident and incident reports and coordinates court dates as the 42nd Security Forces Squadron reports and analysis clerk.
“First thing in the morning, I log the blotter information, and then start putting accident and incident reports into the SF management information system,” he said. “I also file traffic tickets and send them to the individual’s commander for their action.”
Airman Sherwood said administrative duties have given him an opportunity to experience different aspects of security forces.
”I always wanted to know what happened to the tickets and reports I wrote as a patrolman,” he said.
Airman Sherwood has deployed to Iraq twice. He was recently honored for his work with detainee operations during Operation Iraqi Freedom at the 2006 Business Executives for National Security Eisenhower Award dinner May 17.
“I was chosen to represent the 42 ABW and the Air Force at this event which was held at the Ritz-Carlton Ball room in Washington D.C.,” he said.
Airmen Sherwood said adjusting to the separation from his friends and family while deployed has been his greatest personal challenge. He has been married to his wife Wendy for one year. They have a daughter, Baylee, and a son, Noah.
The Enterprise, Ala., native said his father encouraged him to enlist in the Air Force more than five years ago.
“My dad was in the Army for 21 years and he highly encouraged me to choose the Air Force because they take care of their people,” he said. “Well, I did join the Air Force and have loved every minute of it. It not only takes care of me, but it involves my family in everything too.”
He said his mother Susan Pridgen is his role model.
“She is always smiling and friendly when times are hard. She’s giving and loving,” he said.
After duty, Airman Sherwood spends time with his family shopping at the mall and attending his daughter’s softball games and son’s T-ball games.
“I love family time,” he said.

U.S. Air Force Survival Handbook

A comprehensive manual of proven wilderness survival tactics for every situation.
Written for use in formal United States Air Force survival training courses, the U.S. Air Force Survival Handbook iis the bible for pilots who want to stay alive—no matter what. Assuming, as the Air Force does, that flight personnel may be faced at any time with a bailout or crash landing in hostile territory without supplies, the advice here is superlatively practical, but also surprisingly readable and interesting. Detailing specific survival threats at sea, in the tropics, in the desert, in Arctic conditions, and the psychological perils of imprisonment and torture, this handbook is replete with fascinating and useful (if unsettling) information. Precisely written, profusely illustrated, and completely authoritative, this is an essential book for anyone—soldier or civilian—looking for knowledge that could prove to be the difference between life and death in a dangerous situation. 1000 black-and-white illustrations
