Final handshake of appreciation

The vice commander of the 932nd Airlift Wing, Col. Esty Ramirez, shakes hands with retiring 932nd Medical Group commander Col. Vanessa Mattox, as Col. Christopher Simpson, 932nd Mission Support Group commander listens. Colonel Ramirez talked to the large military group of well wishers in the audience about his first time in Illinois at the unit and the fond memories he had meeting Colonel Mattox. He then presented a special world globe and noted her outgoing leadership style, just as she reminded everyone to have fun along the way, and take care of each other while doing the mission.
