Chief Master Sgt. (Ret.) Terry William Cook enlisted in the Air Force in 1972 and retired in 2002. After basic training he trained as a weapons mechanic and worked on the F-4, B-52, F-15, and A-10 aircraft. In 1984 he became a first sergeant and in 1997 he was selected to be the 20th Air Force’s command chief. Maintaining a tie to the military he loves, Cook currently works as the outreach office manager for a Laramie County Community College on F.E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyoming. He also works to bridge gaps between the military and local community by consistently looking for opportunities to honor military members and inform and educate the public. Thirteen years after his Air Force retirement, he remains active in the F.E. Warren AFB Chiefs and Sergeant Majors Group, helping to raise funds to support Airman, Soldier and Sailor programs.
