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.

11/3/2008 - HURLBURT FIELD, Fla. -- The 556th Rapid Engineers Deployable Heavy Operations Repair Squadron Engineers Squadron officially moved from Lackland Air Force Base, Texas, to beddown with the 823 RED HORSE Squadron at Hurlburt Field Oct. 1. 

The squadrons are among the first active-duty and reserve combat support units to beddown together. The move is a part of the Air Force's total force integration initiative.

"The combatant commanders requested more RED HORSE capability," said retired Lt. Col. Joe Ballard, former chief of the civil engineer's readiness division at Headquarters Air Force Reserve Command . "A lot of the work going on in Iraq and Afghanistan is reconstruction and force beddown; of course, it is in a war environment."

PATROL BASE STONE, Iraq – Sixty students graduated from the fourth and final Village of Hope training center rotation during a ceremony at Patrol Base Stone Sept. 25, 2008.

“The Village of Hope was part of a civil service corps program that took Sons of Iraq members from checkpoints and taught them useable trades that they can make a living with,” said Capt. Michael Askegren, 557th Expeditionary Red Horse Squadron officer-in-charge of Village of Hope. “Not every SoI is going to make it into the Iraqi security forces, so the Village of Hope gives them an option to make a good living in legitimate ways.”

HAWR RAJAB, Iraq – Six months ago, the town of Hawr Rajab was a mere shell of its former self. Local shops were closed, their windows boarded up. The streets were abandoned. Homes were badly damaged. The town was once an al Qaida in Iraq stronghold where violence and intimidation forced residents to flee their homes. But today Hawr Rajab is a different place.

Air Force Capt. Michael Askegren, Patrol Base Stone site officer in charge, is deployed from Hurlburt Field, Fla. He had an eye-witness view of the city’s gradual transformation.

“It’s a recovering city. You can see the progress,” said the Mandeville, La. native.

“At 10 in the morning the streets are full. Vendors, iron workers and mechanics are all out working,” he said.

9/4/2008 - MALMSTROM AIR FORCE BASE, Mont. -- Several members of the 819th RED HORSE Squadron recently returned from a seven-month deployment where they completed multi-million dollar projects assisting the Afghanistan and Iraqi people with rebuilding their communities.

For one rural Montana town about eight miles east of Fairfield, the contributions of the 819th RHS can't be measured in monetary worth.

"What they have done for us is huge," said Chris Christensen, school board chairman of the Greenfield School. "There is no other way to say it. We could not have done it without them."

What they did was help four employees of the Summit Recreation Company and a handful of community volunteers assemble a new playground Aug. 15 to 17 in time for the opening of school Aug. 21.

8/19/2008 - MALSTROM AFB, Mont. -- Four members of the 819th RED HORSE Squadron received Bronze Star Medals Aug. 14 for their efforts in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom October through April 2007, while 11 Airmen earned the Air Force Combat Action Medal.

All medals were presented by Lt. Gen. Robert Elder, Eighth Air Force (Air Forces Strategic) commander, at the RED HORSE hangar before the squadron, family and friends.

"Coming before a group like this, and listening to the description of the actions taken to earn these medals, is really amazing," General Elder said. "We know there is great work being done and it really catches your attention."

The general said RED HORSE's capability to accomplish expeditionary construction has no match and no other country or service can do it like the people in RED HORSE.
"We cannot say enough about what you're contributing to the overall (war) effort," he said. "We sometimes lose sight of the reason we're over there, and it's to build a nation and help the Iraqis and Afghanis bring stability to their countries."
