Chief Master Sergeant Jimmie McNeely, retired, (right) was passing through Columbus AFB when he heard about the Chief Recognition Ceremony and attended the ceremony. McNeely retired in 1968 after serving for 22 years and was among the first chiefs to enter the Air Force. The rank of Chief is granted to only one percent of the enlisted force of the Air Force.
