The Scobee Family

Maj. Gen. Richard Scobee graduated from the U.S. Air Force Academy in 1986. A year later, he earned his pilot wings as a distinguished graduate of Euro-NATO Joint Jet Pilot training. He has served as an F-16 instructor pilot both domestically and overseas in Germany, South Korea and Egypt. He deployed as Commander of the 506th Air Expeditionary Group, Kirkuk Regional Air Base, Iraq, in 2008. He has commanded at the Squadron, Group, Wing (Twice) and numbered Air Force levels.

Today, Gen. Scobee serves as the 10th Air Force commander, an Air Force Reserve numbered Air Force unit located at Naval Air Station Fort Worth Joint Reserve Base, Texas. His command includes more than 17,000 personnel operating in fighter, bomber, special operations, rescue, airborne warning and control, fighter and bomber flying-training missions, combat air operations battle staff, remotely-piloted aircraft, space and cyber units.

Richard and his wife Janis moved to Fort Worth, Texas, for the first time in 2009, where he served as commander of the 301st Fighter Wing, an Air Force Reserve F-16 unit located on the same installation. Since their return to Fort Worth a year ago, the Scobees have been actively involved in organizations to include volunteering with the Challenger Learning Center, BSA Troop 326, and supporting military families with deployments.

When Gen. Scobee is not traveling to visit one of his 17 units across the nation, he enjoys working on old cars and spending time with his family.
