SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. --

Fellow Airmen and family gathered at the headquarters flagpole on a warm July day to witness a reenlistment for the highest ranking enlisted member in the wing, Command Chief Master Sgt. Barbara Gilmore.

"What an overwhelming sense of pride I felt to have my daughter stand beside me
as I enter in what is most likely my last enlistment of my career.  We have
instilled in her that our flag is a symbol of valor, perseverance and most
importantly, our freedom," said Chief Gilmore.

"She knows that serving in the military is a way of
life that many will never experience. My family allows me the ability to make
the commitment to serve, without their support, I couldn't do it," she said.

"Having the privilege to serve this country, the United States Air Force, and the
men and women of the 932nd Airlift Wing, and the Air Force Reserve gives me the opportunity to show the
love and the pride I have in defending it," Gilmore continued.  

"As I hit my 27th anniversary in the Air Force, I am excited to be able to continue my commitment to lead and
serve our Airmen here in the 932nd Airlift Wing," she added.
