Crowds of Eagles

Eagle meets with search and rescue crew


6/15/2012 - Retired U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Rhonda Cornum (second from right) speaks to members of the Moody Air Force Base 41st Rescue Squadron standing alongside their HH-60G Pavehawk combat search and rescue helicopter June 8 during Air Command and Staff College's Gathering of the Eagles event. Cornum, who was a prisoner of war during the Gulf War, was one of 14 featured guests in the ACSC program that promotes distinguished aviators as part of an air power legacy elective. Cornum's husband Kory (red shirt middle) looks at the Pavehawk. Pictured beside Cornum is Dr. Mudhafar Kaboush (right). Cornum's arms were broken during a helicopter crash before she was captured. Kaboush is the Iraqi surgeon who provided medical care to Cornum during her captivity. Kabousch was Cornum's special guest for the GOE activities last week. It was the first time their paths have crossed again since she was a POW. He now lives in California. (U.S. Air Force photo by Wendy Simonds)
