Brig. Gen. Mark Berry, Arkansas Air National Guard Chief of Staff, shakes hands with former 188th Fighter Wing members during the wing’s 60th anniversary jubilee Nov. 2, 2013 at the unit’s Ebbing Air National Guard Base, Fort Smith, Ark. Berry, also a former 188th member, made history at the 188th in 2012 by becoming the first general officer promoted from the 188th in more than 25 years. The 188th hosted the event in its main hangar to celebrate 60 years of excellence. The 188th marked 60 years as an Air National Guard unit Oct. 15. The unit began as the 184th Tactical Reconnaissance Squadron in 1953. More than 1,000 people attended the event.
