Honorary Chief, MGen Steven Polk and Chief (ret) Glenda Ferrara enjoy a light-hearted moment. I do try to keep this newsletter about enlisted however, I have elected to spotlight a true supporter of the enlisted force, LtGen Steven Polk. He was recently reassigned from 19AF/CC, Randolph AFB TX to Vice-Commander of Pacific Air Forces, Hickam AB HI. LtGen Polk and I first met when I was assigned to Osan AB Korea and he was the Wing Commander. I often came to work in the morning only to find that then BGen Polk had been around to visit the swing or mid shift. He would stop by to say hi to the day shift and ask them not to inform the commander, Capt, or myself that he was there. Because he told them he was there to see them, not management. We crossed paths again at Randolph where he maintained his concern and support for the enlisted corp. The Chief Master Sergeants of 19AF recognized this and inducted him as an Honorary Chief in Jan 2002. So if you have the honor to meet him, say hi from me and know that you have met a true enlisted champion
