As a Postal Specialist, he worked with the Air Force Inspector General in Europe conducting postal inspections at various overseas air bases. “Overall the Air Force was and has been the best part of my life for me and my wife. We won’t hesitate to tell anyone how good the Air Force was to us. It was a great way of life and a way for us to see many different locations in the United States and overseas,” Risher said. “I would do it all over again!”
