The 15th Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force Rodney J. McKinley relinquished his post as the service's top enlisted man to his successor CMSAF James Roy during a ceremony at Bolling AFB, D.C., June 30, 2009. McKinley formally retires later this summer after 35 years of service. Here, McKinley talks with SSgt. Justin Baldivia, 4th Equipment Maintenance Squadron at Seymour-Johnson AFB, N.C., on June 12, 2009, during one of his last official visits. Baldivia is explaining hydraulic purification capabilities for the F-15E Strike Eagle. (Read this 4th Fighter Wing report by SrA. Heather Stanton for more on McKinley's visit to Seymour-Johnson.)
