Presenter Bruce Cowee joined the Air Force ROTC in 1962 and was commissioned a Second Lieutenant after graduating college in 1966.  Following flight school he was sent to Cam Ranh Bay Air Base in Vietnam, in May 1968. Bruce was assigned to the 458th tactical airlift squadron flying the C7A. He flew close to 900 hours of combat flying time  before he separated from active duty in the Air Force on July 1, 1972.  Shortly after he began his career with Western Airlines on December 12, 1972. He flew various positions and aircraft while at Western, mostly on the Boeing 737 and Boeing 727s. His flying career began with Vietnam in 1968 and ended with 9/11 and its aftermath when he retired in 2004.
