Maj. Maureen McAllen, commander, 452nd Mission Support Squadron, reads a retirement certificate during the retirement ceremony of Tom Cawthon, Chief of Civilian Personnel Flight, at the 452nd Military Personnel Flight, Dec. 16. Cawthon will retire Jan. 2 after 34 years of Air Force civil service, which includes 23 years in his current position at March Air Reserve Base, Calif. Once he retires, Cawthon said he may do some government contract work, and he will be a volunteer soccer referee trainer with the AYSO in Redlands and throughout Southern California. He’s been a volunteer soccer referee for 20 years. “It’s been a privilege working with so many fine professionals over the years,” he said. “I will miss all of them, but I’m ready to move on with different things in my life.” (U.S. Air Force photo by Will Alexander)
