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.

7/30/2009 - BARKSDALE AIR FORCE BASE, La. -- The Barksdale Freedom Riders sponsored a Highway Run to raise money for Staff Sgt. David Flowers, 2d Civil Engineer Squadron explosive ordnance disposal technician, who was injured during his recent deployment. 

While Sergeant Flowers was deployed with the 455th Air Expeditionary Wing at Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan, he stepped on an anti-personnel mine while his team was clearing a weapons cache. Sergeant Flowers lost his right leg below his knee during the explosion. His left leg was also completely shattered and he broke his right wrist and hand.

The Highway Run included bikers from many clubs including the Barksdale Freedom Riders, Shreveport Hogs, the Patriot Guard Riders and individual riders. 

The Poker Run is traditional in motorcycle rallies nationwide. The event kicked off at 9a.m. July 25th at the 8th Air Force museum parking lot where Lorenz Walker, Mayor of Bossier City, spoke during the opening ceremony as a guest speaker. 

The riders drove 105 miles throughout the city visiting five locations where they picked a playing card. The riders had the opportunity to visit a sixth location and pick a wild card.
"The Poker Run is to raise money for Sergeant Flowers and his family," said Senior Master Sgt. Ruben Delgado, Barksdale Freedom Riders president. "The Freedom Riders tried to come up with an event that we could do to help out as a club and the Poker Run was the perfect event." 

All earnings will go to Sergeant Flowers and his family to help dispute the costs of being relocated to Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C. Sergeant Flowers will be undergoing many surgeries and physical therapy. 

"We raised a total of $5,615 today," said Senior Master Sgt. Sanders Louvierre Jr., 2d Aircraft Maintenance Squadron adjutant to the commander and Barksdale Freedom Rider. "There is more money to come though. We raised about $4,000 in merchandise sold during the event. We will be writing a check as soon as we are done collecting money. 

"We want the Flowers' family to live life like they are use to," added Sergeant Louvierre.
A total of 150 riders registered for the Poker Run and the local community provided the prizes for the winning hand. 

"We received a $1,000 donation from a local community," said Sergeant Delgado. "You do not understand the generosity of the people of the community has until you get a donation like that. 

"Hopefully this money can help him out with anything," added Sergeant Delgado.
After all the money is collected, Sergeant Flowers' flight superintendent will present the money to Sergeant Flowers' wife, Elizabeth.
