Commander makes final JROTC visit

Commander of the 932nd Airlift Wing, Col. Jonathan Philebaum, shares a moment of reflection and appreciation with Col. Randall Lanning, commander and instructor at the Mascoutah High School Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps. Both colonels are retiring in the next couple of weeks. Col. Philebaum retires on June 3, and he spoke to the high school students about his career, overcoming adversity, and service to others and the Air Force during an early morning visit, as part of their roll call JROTC meeting. Col. Lanning is retiring this month as the Senior Aerospace Science Instructor for the group of cadets near Scott Air Force Base, and he has worked continuously with many projects involving both units. The 932nd AW formally "adopted" the Mascoutah detachment in April, 2010. This visit on May 10, 2017, marked the final joint outreach project between the two commanders. (U.S. Air Force photo by Lt.
