“The air force’s real strength lies in its people. The mission is not done by machines, it is done by people. The best weapons are of little value without trained and motivated people to operate and support them.”
Charles A. Gabriel (1928 to 2003)
General Charles A. Gabriel was the 11th Chief of Staff of the US Air Force.
His first assignment was to South Korea, during the Korean War, where he flew 100 combat missions in F-51s and F-86s and was credited with shooting down two MiG-15s.
