Tom Melnick
Tom Melnick Class of 1983
Air Force, 20+ Years
Retired June 17, 2016 after 30 years in the USAF. Deployed to Iraq in 2009, and three tours to Kabul, Afghanistan at the ISAF Joint Command (2010, 2012, 2013). Last tour was at Scott AFB, IL as the Senior Enlisted Advisor (CMSgt/E-9) at HQ Air Mobility Command. In my earlier days and years, I was a target intelligence analyst, as well as an All-Source Intelligence Analyst for a number of years. 30 years sounds like a long time, but it isn't when you're having fun. Thanks to all who have supported and continue to support the military, we definitely appreciate it.
