This Website is dedicated to, and in honor of the Owasso High School alumni of Owasso, Oklahoma who have been, or who are now in the United States Military... Our Warriors!

Send me your name, photos, email address, snailmail address, or that of a friend so they can receive messages from us. If you only want to add a name, that is fine too; at least we know who to pray for, and who to thank for fighting the battle of our freedom. Yes, "pray"... I am not being offensive or asking anyone to change beliefs; so please do pray for Our Warriors, Our Country and it's leaders to have wisdom, health and safety.
The purpose for this page is to honor our Owasso alumni who serve in the Military, and to have a list of whom to pray for, and write, or email should correspondence be desired.

Alex D. Ackley, Class of 1994
United States Air Force

I was astonished to find out that Owasso had it's own homepage. Must really be growing. Anyhow I would like to be added to the Alumni for 1994. To fill you in on where I've been for the past 6 years. Joined the Air Force, graduated Firefighter tech school, stationed at Vandenberg AFB, California for a year, transferred to Peterson AFB, Colorado Springs, where I spent almost 4 years minus two 4 month tours to the desert (United Arab Emirates) Out of Peterson I received a lot of other technical training from becoming a Rescue certified EMT-basic to a Haz-Mat Technician level. I'm currently serving a one year remote tour at OSAN AB, Republic of Korea (Don't worry it's in South Korea) where I'll be leaving to go back to Peterson AFB on the 21st of August 2001. Wish me luck and keep up on the page. It looks great!
Your fellow Owassoian,

[Nashville, TN]
I was in the Air Force as a Crew Chief (B-52 and B-1) from May 1986 to May 1995. Because the B-1 was at the time only in 4 locations, my assignments were limited. I was stationed in North Dakota for 7 years and Wichita for 2, but was able to travel around the US quite a bit for support of Air Shows. I met my wife, Melinda while in North Dakota, she was in Macon, GA and we met through a mutual friend. We got out and moved to Nashville where we live now. I�ve been working as a Programmer since graduating Middle Tennessee State University in 1998. I currently work for NaviTech, HR Solutions, based out of Duluth, GA. We have no children, but are adopting from Russia and will hopefully have our child by the end of 2006.

Aloha! I'm still a Naval Flight Officer in the US Navy. I completed my second deployment in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom in March of 2006. I was a mission commander this time around which was very rewarding. Upon returning home, I accepted follow-on shore duty orders to remain here on Oahu until February, 2009. My latest assignment is as a Weapons and Tactics Instructor, training P-3C Orion aircrews on the finer points of Antisubmarine Warfare (ASW), Antisurface Warfare (SUW), and Surveillance (ISR). We take newly formed crews and hone their skills until they are fully combat ready and deployable. I also serve as the Strike Officer for our Wing. My beautiful wife Kimberly and I reside in Kailua, HI along with our children Paige (9) and Grant (5). Paige plays baseball and Grant is playing his first season of soccer. Both enjoy hiking, boogie boarding, snorkeling, and pretty much anything else related to the ocean. So far, we've visited the islands of Hawai'i and Maui. Both were absolutely incredible. If you find yourself in our little corner of the pool we call the Pacific, drop us a line or stop in for a visit. We'll be happy to show you around and keep you out of the tourist traps! Attached are pictures of my family at Maunawili Falls, Kimberly and myself at Molokini, and me in Iraq next to the remains of an Iraqi MIG-21 Fishbed. Mahalo Nui Loa to Snowhawk for the wonderful site. We truly appreciate all of the hard work you put into it! With Aloha,

snrmn70@gimail.af.mil [Iraq] / My wonderful career consists of a tour in vietnam. Just kidding. Really though, after basic training in San Antonio, TX (Lackland AFB) and tech school in Wichita Falls, TX (Sheppard AFB), I went to Abilene, TX (Dyess AFB). After spend a year and a half there they decided to close our unit down so they moved me to Frankfurt, GE (Rhein Main AB). I spent four wonderful years there, was able to do many things I wouldn't be able to do in the states. After my tour was over in Germany they moved me to Dover DE (Dover AFB). I spent another year and a half there and that is when I finished my active duty career in 1998. I guess I missed it a little so I joined the Air Force Reserves in 2001, I haven't had more fun in all my life. I have been to Germany a couple of more times and lucky me I am now deployed to Iraq helping fight the War on Terrorism for four and a half months.   12/05

Hello to all, it�s been a long time, but sometimes seems like those high school days weren�t so long ago at all. I am currently a Master Sergeant in the Air Force stationed at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, and have now served 29 years. I have two daughters 22 and 18, both already have flown the coup and are on their own.

My military career has been a long and rewarding one, as I have served in 7 stateside, and 3 overseas locations, as well as deployed multiple times to forward locations in support of current middle-east operations most recently a small country called Qatar. I have served as an Aircraft Technician, a Weapons and Tactics Instructor, a Signal Voice Linguist (Russian), a Recruiter, and a Training Management Technician. Please feel free to contact me.

"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt, 1910
