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.

CONTINGENCY OPERATING BASE BASRA, Iraq – The landscape of Contingency Operating Base Basra is changing rapidly. Some buildings have already been erected to improve the operational capability of Multi-National Division - South, with others planned for the near future.

The progress evident all over COB Basra is due largely to the efforts of the U.S. Air Force's 557th Expeditionary Rapid Engineer Deployable Heavy Operation Repair Squadron Engineers. The 557th "RED HORSE" Sqdn. is comprised of engineering specialists from 76 bases all over the U.S., said Air Force Master Sgt. Barry Snyder Jr.

6/17/2009 - FORWARD OPERATING BASE FINLEY-SHIELDS, Afghanistan (AFNS) -- Nangarhar Province is seeing a rush of construction projects due in large part to the vision and planning of an Air Force civil engineer team here.

As part of the Nangarhar Provincial Reconstruction Team, civil engineers work with fellow PRT members, including civil affairs teams, to address the needs of a specific district or village and nail down the particulars necessary to get a project approved and built.

The civil affairs team works with local leaders on determining the specific needs of an area. The province, approximately 7,700 square miles with 22 recognized districts, is considered the agricultural center of the country.

6/2/2009 - ANDERSEN AIR FORCE BASE, Guam -- Fourteen Air Force Academy cadets, specializing in engineering degrees, arrived here May 16 for a two-week temporary duty to experience an operational civil engineer squadron.

"The cadets came to Andersen as part of a summer class called field engineer readiness laboratory," said Capt. Matt Burrell, 36th Civil Engineer Squadron readiness and emergency management flight commander. "The class makes cadets apply the skills they've learned by building and de-constructing at a job site on the Academy grounds. The tour of Andersen was the first part of that class. The tour was geared to show the cadets what an operational civil engineering squadron is really like."

KANDAHAR, Afghanistan -- Swiping the sweat, dirt and grime from his face, Tech. Sgt. Michael Stout is dirty. Very dirty. In fact, with the exception of a glimmer of red emerging from the crusted baseball hat on his head, every inch of Stout's body is some shade of the Kandahar terrain he's been working for the past week.

The ubiquitous red hat not only adds a contrast to his physical appearance, it also sets him apart from the other Airmen working at various jobs around Kandahar Air Field.

Stout is a horseman, or a member of the Air Force's Red Horse team, a specialized self-contained engineer unit uniquely situated to deploy anywhere in the world and conduct base build-up operations under austere conditions.

--Camp Blanding, Florida--The 202nd RED HORSE Squadron (Florida Air Guard) held its annual Field Training Exercise at Camp Blanding Joint Training Center in May 2009, with a multi-task format.

202nd RHS Commander Colonel Jack Paschal said the exercise had a two-tier mission: "We're actually accomplishing two goals in one swing: preparing for a Unit Compliance Inspection Inspection this August, and getting ready for an Operational Readiness Inspection in April 2010. That's a lot of spaghetti on one fork. Normally there are several years between a UCI and
ORI, but this is the way it worked out, and we're getting it done."
