The RED HORSE and Prime BEEF Association was formed in 2001 as it was determined there was a need for all USAF Combat Civil Engineers to remain in touch, re-establish old friendships, create new ones, perpetuate our spirit and traditions, represent the interests, provide a fraternal atmosphere, encourage social interaction, develop a scholarship fund and support our members in their time of need.
Our Mission is to increase awareness of the USAF Combat Civil Engineers accomplishments and tradition of excellence past and present during war and peace time with the American populace, preserve our proud heritage, share our legacy and to foster strong and mutually beneficial relationships among government, educational and civic leaders. It is our desire to be a significant force of support towards the USAF CE strategic mission, to be able to contribute to the over all morale and enhance the welfare of our profession.
We are a non-profit, tax exempt, non-commercial professional military association that exists to support, promote and develop the interests of all past, present, Active, AFRC and ANG USAF Combat Civil Engineer professionals.
Membership applications are available on this web site (the second red tab on the top left of this page) or feel free to contact us for more information.

5/29/2007 - HOLLOMAN AIR FORCE BASE, N.M. -- The 619th RED HORSE Squadron out of Malmstrom Air Force Base, Mont., worked both day and night for nearly two months replacing a portion of the Holloman taxiway with 17,000 tons of concrete in near-record time, saving the Air Force time and money.

"The team had been working 24-hour operations for the first six weeks, working six to seven days a week," said 1st Lt. Timothy Grady, 619 RED HORSE. The job was supposed to take 120 days to complete. 

Col. Gary Bryson, 49th Maintenance Group commander, said the concrete in that particular area needed to be replaced because it was breaking up, weathering and deteriorating. But, the new concrete will last for another 25 years. 

After the job was finished, Colonel Bryson gave his coin to five Airmen to highlight their work. 

There are five RED HORSE squadrons in the continental United States who are self-sustaining, heavy construction squadrons, said Lieutenant Grady. Each squadron is made up of Airmen from civil engineer, security forces, medical and personnel. 

"The RED HORSE Airmen have the capability to travel worldwide within 24 hours," said Lieutenant Grady. "We go to Iraq, Afghanistan, Qatar, Kuwait, Guatemala and Africa." 

The 619 RED HORSE will be leaving Holloman the first week in June after doing some training at BEAR Base and will be getting ready for an upcoming scheduled deployment.
