Random Photo Report: The SecDef's Wife...

I have an ongoing project of scanning in the hard copy photographs that fill boxes of photo albums throughout the house. I'm almost done with scanning in the photos of my trip to Bosnia. I found this little moment, me posing with Janet Cohen, wife of, to save my life I can't recall his name... but he was the Secretary of Defense at the time.Anyway, I apologize for my hair and glasses, and by any understanding of USAF grooming standards, my BGen Robin Olds-like mustache.

Mrs. Cohen didn't mind though.

It was William Cohen. I remember his comment, "We can never pay you enough, but we can always try to pay you more!"

But I think she was the more popular of the two!

Cheers! M2

Yea, I knew it was William Cohen - I should have made my sarcasm a little more clear. And even with his kind words about more pay - you are right - she was still more popular!

What's the code that governs the rules on hair? AFR 31-10? You appear to be in the guidelines.

Dave said...

You are thinking AFR 35-10. That has (several years ago) been changed to AFI 36-2903. Yea, I'm sure my hair was close.

Now days, all the AF guys are shaved with flat tops or just bald. Back when I joined, outside of basic training, shaved heads (or anything resembling a Marine) was considered "faddish". That all changed the day Michale Jordon became a star and suddenly, bald was in.
