170603-Z-BD327-114: U.S. Air Force Col. Daniel Skotte, the commander of the 146th Airlift Wing Medical Group, speaks to the assembled crowd following his official retirement after serving for nearly 50 years, June 3, 2017, at Kingsley Field, Ore. His remarks touched upon his reasons for entering the service in 1967 and at times the emotion of the moment was evident in his voice while he and the crowd shared a laugh during lighter moments.
