69th FS Activation

Lt. Col. David Garfield, 944th Operations Group commander, passes the 69th Fighter Squadron guidon to Lt. Col. Steve Speckhard, 69th FS commander, during the squadron's activation ceremony March 6 where the pilots of the 301st Fighter Squadron symbolically changed their patch to the 69th FS. The 301st FS, which traces its roots to the Tuskegee Airmen of World War II, will continue its legacy with the next generation aircraft, the F-22 Raptor, at Holloman Air Force Base, N.M., as a Reserve associate unit. The 69th FS pilots will continue their reserve associate pilot training program with the 56th Fighter Wing here at Luke. (U.S. Air Force photo/Tech. Sgt. Susan Stout)
