Last Known Activity
My memories of M/Gen Felices    

General Felices (then Lt Col) commanded the 903rd Air Refueling Squadron, Beale AFB, CA, during a period of time in which I served as a KC-135 combat crew navigator (early 1960's). He was a great commander and a very personable individal. 

As a Standardization Crew navigator I had the opportunity to fly with him on numerous occasions. At that time, there was never a question in my mind but that he had the professional drive and determination to achieve well deserved command positions in the years ahead....which he did. It was a  true pleasure to serve with him, those many years ago.

McClaine, Richard (Dick), Maj
