Excerpt: Last year, the USAF lost one of the most influential Airmen of the modern era. Gen Wilbur L. ?Bill? Creech was a leader, a visionary, a warrior, and a mentor. Just as Gen Curtis E. LeMay shaped the Air Force of the Cold War through his development of Strategic Air Command in the 1950s, General Creech shaped the Air Force of today through his actions as the commander of Tactical Air Command (TAC) from 1978 until 1984. Under the leadership of General Creech, TAC--and the Tactical Air Forces (TAF) writ large--underwent a transformation that, in large measure, built the Air Force that has fought so brilliantly in campaigns from Operation Desert Storm to the present global war on terrorism.
