Air National Guard command chief Muncy retires

WASHINGTON -- The command chief to the director of the Air National Guard retired during a Sept. 20 ceremony at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling.

Chief Master Sgt. Christopher E. Muncy said his final farewell to Lt. Gen. Harry M. Wyatt III, the director of the ANG, and other distinguished guests, dignitaries, and fellow service members after 35 years of service to the Air Force, ANG and our country.

"God bless you all for being here, God bless your families and those that you protect and defend," Muncy said. "I thank you for everything.
Most importantly, I thank this nation; I really do ... today and every day, around the world and here in the 50 states, territories and the District. Thanks again, gang."

Muncy, of Dayton, Ohio, entered the Air Force in October 1977, and later the Ohio ANG in 1979. Muncy has deployed multiple times in support of world-wide military operations during his career. He became the state of Ohio command chief in August 2004. His duties have taken him around the U.S. and the globe including Iraq, Qatar and Kuwait. He also worked in close coordination with Ohio's state partnership countries of Serbia and Hungary.

Muncy chaired the ANG's Enlisted Field Advisory Council and taught the ANG's Chief's Executive Course, as well as the Satellite Noncommissioned Officer Academy and Airmen Leadership School. He assumed his most recent position of command chief to the director of the Air National Guard in May 2009.

During the ceremony, Wyatt presented Muncy with the Legion of Merit, a military decoration of the U.S. armed forces that is awarded for exceptionally meritorious conduct in the performance of outstanding services and achievements.

Muncy was instrumental in the resolution of complex problems of major importance to the Air Force and the ANG. He led the transformation of ANG enlisted grades with a review program and led the fight for better coverage in medical continuation orders and Airman resiliency programs. Muncy was the principal architect of the ANG's Hometown Hero Salute program that has recognized more than 75,000 Airmen, their families, employers and centers of influence, making it one of the largest recognition programs in the ANG and Air Force history. He led 92,000 enlisted Airmen across the states, territories and the District of Columbia.

"I take great faith and great pride in the fact that Chief Muncy has gotten the Air National Guard and the enlisted core exactly where we need to be," Wyatt said. "I know that we're going to be even better next year, not just because of the leaders that we will have in place next year but because of the foundation that Chief Muncy has created during his tenure."
