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.

7/10/2008 - AYACUCHO, Peru (AFPN) -- A 64-member team of Air Force civil engineers are making speedy progress here in the completion of several construction projects supporting New Horizons-Peru 2008, a U.S. and Peruvian humanitarian effort to bring relief to underprivileged Peruvians. 

The Rapid Engineer Deployable Heavy Operational Repair Squadron Engineer, or RED HORSE, team -- comprised of engineers from the 820th and 555th RED HORSE Squadrons from Nellis Air Force Base, Nev., and the 219th RED HORSE Squadron at Malmstrom AFB, Mont. -- began the construction of a medical clinic and school here in early June. 

While the team was scheduled to complete the projects in late August, and despite the challenges they face, the team has pulled ahead of schedule.

BAGRAM AIR FIELD, Afghanistan - The wind blows hot and harsh across Forward Operating Base Sharana, pushing a wall of dust in front of it. Flags whip in protest to the treatment and Soldiers across the FOB squint behind their eye-protection and pull caps down lower as dust devils spawn to brief chaotic life around them.

It’s hot, dry and rain seems a distant memory to most, but to Air Force Master Sgt. Rick Grambo of the 1st Expeditionary Red Horse Group’s Well Drilling Detachment and his team, Sharana seems a veritable oasis.

After 30 days of work, the Red Horse team had tapped into a significant reserve of water deep beneath the FOB.

6/23/2008 - KADENA AIR BASE, Japan (AFPN)  -- Kadena Air Base is now home to a rescue technician course designed to help Pacific-region firefighters save lives and at the same time save the Air Force dollars.

The three week course is offered by Detachment 1, 554th Red Horse Squadron, who teaches firefighters how to manage personnel and resources during rescue situations.

The rescue technician course originated at Goodfellow Air Force Base, Texas, and in the past, Pacific-region firefighters traveled thousands of miles to attend. With the establishment of the course here, the Air Force will save about $15,000 in travel costs for every course while providing the highest level of training.

Air Force Reserve Command Public Affairs

6/4/2008 - ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. -- Starting this year, Air Force Reserve Command will convert some positions and move others to give the Air Force a larger RED HORSE force.

The Air Force needs more rapid engineer deployable heavy operational repair squadron engineer Airmen to support the Global War on Terror. To meet that need and support the Total Force, AFRC will create 446 RED HORSE authorizations.

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

332nd Air Expeditionary Wing Public Affairs

5/29/2008 - BALAD AIR BASE, Iraq (AFPN) -- Airmen from Detachment 6 of the 732nd Expeditionary Civil Engineer Squadron recently returned here from forward deployed locations where they were instrumental in building infrastructures for coalition and joint forces in Iraq.

One project was to build a joint combat outpost in the Diyala River Valley, while another project was to construct various concrete pads for a motor pool at Forward Operating Base Caldwell.

After members of the 1203rd Engineer Battalion's 224th Engineer Support Company cleared and leveled the construction site and installed force protection, the engineers from Det. 6 went to work.

"We constructed more than 25,000 square feet of living, dining and operations buildings from the ground up," said Staff Sgt. John Wernegreen, 732nd ECES Det. 6 structural craftsman, deployed from Nellis Air Force Base, Nev. "This project gave the [U.S.] Army's [3rd Squadron, 2nd Stryker Cavalry Regiment] and Iraqi army [soldiers] a place to carry out their mission of controlling the battlespace around the Eastern Diyala Province."

"The area where JCOP Milledge was built had been an Al Qaeda in Iraq stronghold and was previously considered a safe haven for insurgents in the Diyala Province," said Army Capt. Timothy Hsia, 3/2 Cav logistics officer. "As a result of the development of the JCOP, U.S. forces are now able to quickly respond and counter enemy actions in the Diyala River Valley."

The work the Airmen from the 732nd ECES executed was extensive.
