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.

ARLINGTON, Va., (3/3/10) -- A moment of silence will be observed today by the 203rd RED HORSE Squadron of the Virginia Air National Guard to honor the lives of 18 unit members and three Florida Army Guard aviators, who perished in a military transport crash nine years ago.

A memorial ceremony is being planned for the unit's next drill on March 21.

The 18 engineers and three Florida aviators from Detachment 1 of the 171st Aviation Battalion, were killed on March 3, 2001, as the 203rd members were returning home after completing a two-week, military construction project at Hurlburt Field, Fla. The C-23 Sherpa they were flying in crashed in a cotton field near Unadilla, Ga.

2/22/2010 - PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti  -- Engineers from the 190th Air Refueling Wing and 184th Intelligence Wing, Kansas Air National Guard, were conducting a routine survey of the field adjacent to the airport in Port-au-Prince, Haiti when they discovered a group of Airmen had been there before.

While leveling the field, Airmen noticed the words "820 RHS 94 95 96" on an enormous concrete block. The podium shaped block was so large engineers driving earthmovers left it in the center of the newly formed 24th Air Expeditionary Group encampment.

"Discovering this was a complete surprise to me," said Col. Dan Courtois, the 24th Air Expeditionary Group commander. "It's a good feeling to know we are following in the footsteps of other Airmen who have helped the people of Haiti."

Red Horse Airmen Bring Combat Outpost Into Fight

Story by Staff Sgt. Stacia Zachary

FORWARD OPERATING BASE DWYER, Afghanistan -- Before the arrival of the 809th Expeditionary Red Horse Squadron, the occupants were living in a British compound lined with tents relying solely on supplies brought in from convoys and air drops. Now, the vital role of the Red Horse mission is providing aerial access into this region of Helmand province.

"As U.S. forces produce smaller combat outposts in Helmand province to soldify our position in combating terrorism and rebuilding infrastructure in Afghanistan, [Forward Operating Base] Dwyer provides a hub for United States Forces - Afghanistan to put combat and medevac assets into use," said Capt. Vincent Rea, 809th Expeditionary Red Horse Squadron detachment officer in charge. "Having the capability to bring fixed and rotary aerial assets here is huge asset for servicemembers here."

9/3/2009 - MALMSTROM AIR FORCE BASE, Mont. -- When the morning sun has fully breached the horizon on Forward Operating Base Dwyer, it is already 115 degrees Fahrenheit. The small, formerly British post in southern Afghanistan hosts a team of Airmen as they labor in the desert. Winds howl at 35 kilometers per hour across open acres of land sending dust throughout the work sites where a $911,000 air strip has been constructed. 

It's not abnormal for visibility to be less than 50 feet on the new 4,300-foot flight line. In this environment, the 809th Expeditionary RED HORSE Squadron has accomplished a task no previous RED HORSE unit has.
