We at the McChord Air Museum Foundation want to welcome our
new Administrator / Curator Mr.
Ray Jordan. As those familiar with the McChord Museum know, the recently
retired Master Sergeant is very familiar sight around McChord, MSgt Ray
Jordan has been the Administrator/Curator for the McChord Air Museum/
Heritage Center many years now, on loan from the 62d Airlift Wing’s
62d Maintenance Squadron (62 MXS).
A little more than a year ago a decision was made by the
command of the 62d AW to convert some of the bases non-mission critical
jobs staffed by active Military personnel into civilian slots, the
Museums Administrator position was one of the jobs selected. After a
lengthy nationwide search which produced many qualified candidates,
McChord officials confirmed what we at the Museum Foundation have known
for years; Ray was the man for the job !
As of 28 November, the Administrator/Curator position
became a civilianized with a familiar face behind the desk, Mr.
Ray Jordan - Congratulations from all of us at the Foundation !
