I was remembering some of the people from my first assignment in the Air Force which was the 49 EMS at Holloman and was saddened to find out that my first Branch Chief had passed on. He was the best Branch Chief I had the pleasure of serving under. I got out of the AF after four years but reentered through the Guard and Reserves and served for about twenty more years in Security Forces. Many times while I was on duty at Holloman I would drive by building 828 and remember all the good times I had there. Times in the AF were so different then and I think the best. Back then NCO's lead by example and none better than Smsgt Groves.
