Past Members of the USAF Shooting Teams

This page is under construction.  Any volunteer labor (in the form of information) will be gratefully accepted.  Please volunteer by sending your info to Edwin Hall (USAF Ret).  A special thanks to MSgt Donald R. Rupp (USAF Ret) and TSgt Arnold Vitarbo (USAF Ret) for volunteering their valuable information and filling in many gaps on this page.

This page is an alphabetized list of past members of the USAF Shooting Teams.  Many of the dates are estimates or left with question marks.  This page is an attempt to catalog all the past members and any significant accomplishments of each.  Accomplishments are not limited to the active time spent on the team.  Any corrections or additions should be sent to Edwin Hall (USAF Ret).

Special Note: A project is underway to add some photo links to the members listed here.  These links will be displayed after the member's name, in parentheses with the word "pictures:" and each link will be represented by a number.  The numbers do not represent any chronological order and the linked image will not highlight the member.  However, in some instances, further links from the Gallery, may navigate to a page where members' names are displayed by placing the mouse cursor over a face.  These links do not necessarily represent all the pictures of an individual, either.  It is rather an attempt to provide some pictures of the greatest number of past members.  Please browse our Gallery pages for more pictures.

An alphabetized Quick Index of names is located at the bottom of this page.
