SMSgt   Brian   M.   Johnson,   USAF   Retired,   who   prepared   the   “History of   the   Metrology   Training   Division”   document   from   which   we’ve extracted   and   used   much   supportive   narration   for   this   website’s content.

Our    extreme    thanks    and    gratitude    goes    to    Maggie    Rash    who, collaborating   with   George   Blood,   worked   tirelessly   to   continue   the annual   PMEL   Picnic   and   Reunion   traditions   so   many   active   and retired,   in   and   out   of   state,   PMEL   technicians   have   enjoyed   over the   years.   When   budgets   were   tight   and/or   locations   elsewhere were   not   available,   Maggie   and   Tim   Rash   were   kind   enough   to offer   their   home   as   the   location   for   many   annual   PMEL   picnics over the years!
Our   thanks   and   appreciation   also   goes   out   to   Steve   Moore,   Mike Cross,    George    Blood,    George    Smith,    Jim    Lillard,    Bob    Renner, Frank    Bandy    and    others    who’ve    provided    photos    of    these various PMEL events. We    wish    to    also    thank    Dave    Akers    who,    mostly    behind    the scenes,   provided   many   door   prizes   and   gifts…from   the   annual presentation   of   THE   Rolex   watch   to   Belgian   Chocolates…at   each of our winter PMEL reunions!

And   

finally…we   

wish   

to   

thank
