Virginia Rhone, T Square Crew Shuttle Driver and considered a second mom to many of the undergraduate pilots attending ENJJPT, retires after 31 years with the 80th Flying Training Wing at Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas. A T-37 Crew Chief for 21 years, Virginia took on shuttling pilot crews for the last 10 years on the flight line. "They are out here learning to protect us, we need to take care of them," she said.
