After more than four decades of dedicated service, Master Sgt. Ron Brown is retiring from the 117th Air Control Squadron, a critical element of the Georgia Air National Guard and Georgia’s Department of Defense.

Master Sgt. Brown initiated his military career July 19, 1969, when he voluntarily enlisted in the 116th Airlift Wing at Dobbins AFB in Marietta during the height of the Vietnam War.  He was originally assigned to the 116th Consolidated Aircraft Maintenance (CAM) Squadron and he was trained in maintenance analysis and the manpower section.  In 1976, he transferred to the 129th Tactical Control Flight (and later Squadron) where he continued his services as a first sergeant, mobility noncommissioned officer and administrative technician.

Over the next 35 years Brown continued his dedicated service in ever increasing positions of responsibility including numerous deployments to Denmark, Germany, Kuwait and Iraq. In 1995, he transferred to the 117th Air Control Squadron where he continued his service as the logistics planner responsible for the movement of men and material into and out of numerous deployments in support of the war on terrorism.

A formal retirement ceremony was conducted Saturday at the 117th Air Control Squadron located on Hunter Army Airfield.
Master Sgt. (ret) Brown and his family currently reside in Effingham County.
