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.

5-5-4 wins award PDF Print E-mail

3/5/2010 - ANDERSEN AIR FORCE BASE, Guam -- The 554th Red Horse Squadron here was the first Red Horse Squadron to become activated in the Air Force, so it's only right it becomes the first Red Horse Squadron to win the prestigious Robert H. Curtin Award. Named from the former Air Force director of engineering, the award was given to the 160 person squadron for "best small civil engineering unit in the Air Force."

The competition for the award is based on what type of impact a unit has on its home station, deployed locations and its community involvement.

 "It's very special to me to see a Red Horse unit win this award, especially one that is so involved not only in their home unit set-up, but the set-up of three other units," said Lt. Col. Anthony Davit, 554th Red Horse Squadron Commander.

Reigning as Pacific Air Force's number one construction force, the 554th Red Horse has won the "best of" award at them major command level for the past three years. The added prestige of this year's Air Force level award is most likely due to the fact that last year the 554th deployed outside U.S. Pacific Command's theater for the first time in over 35 years.

Another reason the 554thh was singled out from its competitors this year is its $218 million project on Andersen's historic Northwest field, the Pacific Air Forces Regional Training Center. The PRTC compound will be used for contingency war-time training for Security Forces, Services, and Civil Engineering Airmen from across the Pacific.

Proving you can do more with less, with a command that has about half the manpower allocation of an average active duty Red Horse unit, Lieutenant Colonel Anthony Davit remained humbled when his unit was named "Best in the Air Force."

"The 554th Red Horse Squadron couldn't have won this [Robert H.] Curtin Award without all the men and women of the 554th," said Lt. Col. Davit. "The 554th has a great legacy, and we continue to build on that great legacy to ever improve the 5-5-4!"
