Delta Zeta is proud to have seen a number of its Brothers serve our country in the various armed forces, but this month marks a very special occasion – for Brother Tim White is retiring from his service with the United States Air Force.
A professor of joint military operations with the Air Force, Brother White has served for 25 years, having been stationed across the country, including Vance AFB in Oklahoma; Dyess AFB in Texas, Grams Forks AFB in North Dakota; Maxwell AFB in Alabama; McConnell AFB in Kansas; Altus AFB in Oklahoma; McGuire AFB in New Jersey; Naval Station Newport in Rhode Island; and Scott AFB in Illinois.
Brother White has been deployed 13 times during his career, mostly to the desert. He has flown combat missions and Special Operations combat missions in both Afghanistan and Iraq.
“I am proudest of the courage of my family during my deployments,” Brother White states, “as my triplet children grew old enough to fully understand both how long I’d be gone and how dangerous deployments could be.”
Brother White also praises his time as a Chi Phi. “Being a Chi Phi Brother helped me to depend on those stationed around me,” he admits. “My relationships in Chi Phi bled into the trust I would place in my fellow Airmen to accomplish the mission. It was this trust that afforded my comrades and me unrivaled success in our service to our nation and this opportunity to proudly and contently retire from the United States Air Force.”
The Delta Zeta Alumni Association extends our sincere appreciation for all of Brother White’s service to our country and to us and wish you a hearty congratulations on your well-earned retirement! Best wishes, Brother White!
