So, I could have started by mentioning the fact that his name is Alphonso Thomas, but I was compelled to be a bit more “possessive” in my approach 🙂
It made you look, didn’t it?
I had the great honor of being invited by my cousin to witness his official induction ceremony into the Department of Air Force Senior Executive Service!
You don’t know what the Senior Executive Service is?
No worries, I didn’t know what it was either…
However, that is no longer the case.
Apparently, it is a RARE and GREAT honor.
I have to say that during the ceremony, I was amazed to learn of Alphonso’s many accomplishments during his service as an officer in the Air Force, and later, as a civil servant.
Suffice it to say, he has racked up quite a few outstanding achievements. Most of which, I can barely understand, but I will say that it involves missiles, bombers and some other such wizardry that my mind can’t quite comprehend.
