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.

TALIL, Iraq – Task Force 449’s new aviation maintenance facility, originally scheduled to open Jan. 15, opened one week early due to the dedication and diligence of the Army, Air Force and civilian personnel tasked with its construction and outfitting.

“This project is an excellent example of good people from different services working together to achieve a common goal.” said Lt. Col. Michael L. Fields, TF 449 deputy commander, who lives in Winston-Salem, N.C. “The end result is a productive aircraft maintenance facility that will provide support to all aviation resources in southern Iraq.”

Airmen with 557th Expeditionary Red Horse Squadron, from Nellis Air Force Base, Nev., played a critical role in developing the aviation intermediate maintenance facility in Talil, which will be used for all helicopter scheduled, unscheduled and phased maintenance as well as support aviation brigade operations, command and control center, and aircraft parking.

1/16/2009 - SOUTHWEST ASIA (AFNS) -- Twenty members of the 379th Civil Engineer Squadron electrical systems shop at this air base in Southwest Asia give power to the people while giving them the energy they need to get through every day.

Responsible for repairing and maintaining all lighting fixtures, street lights, power outlets and other low voltage jobs for all flightline and base facilities, most people do not notice the sheer magnitude of power these Airmen have.

Air Force engineers answer the call from Soldiers in Iraq

12/24/2008 - JOINT BASE BALAD, Iraq (AFNS) -- "Answering the call" is a motto 732nd Expeditionary Civil Engineer Squadron Airmen believe in, and it's something Soldiers can attest to.

This team of combat-trained engineers, assigned to the 732nd ECES Det. 6, will build anything, anywhere to help Soldiers in Iraq accomplish their mission or to improve quality of life.

"We do vertical and horizontal construction projects at different forward operating bases," said Maj. Thomas Taylor, the Det. 6 commander. "We can build a FOB from the ground up or expand facilities to provide more space for Soldiers to live and work in. We give Soldiers who go outside the wire to conduct the combat mission a better quality of life."

Although the nature of their mission hasn't changed, these Airmen who work with the Army -- and in most cases fill Army civil engineer positions -- have adjusted to a mission that takes them outside the wire to provide their construction and electrical services.

12/11/2008 - BAGRAM AIR FIELD, Afghanistan -- Seven years into the war on terror, the U.S. military is transitioning operations here from an expeditionary mindset to an enduring one. Airmen of the 455th Expeditionary Civil Engineer Squadron work around the clock to improve Bagram Air Field's infrastructure and support this enduring mission.

There are 25 active construction projects valued at more than $73 million. More than $221 million in construction is scheduled for next year.

"Our mission is to maintain and repair the airfield," said Master Sgt. Brent Sheehan, 455th ECES superintendent deployed from Grand Forks Air Force Base, N.D. "This base and mission is growing like at no other time in the history of Bagram. There is a huge push for expansion. This is well known in the squadron and the pressure and focus is on us to get it done."
