We have been asked by a member of A Hero’s Welcome to surprise a good friend of his and Hero at his retirement party in SNJ.

MSgt Thomas Shine entered the USAF in July, 1987 and recently retired on Oct. 2, 2017 serving 30+ years of flying high and protecting our great country! That’s right…30+ years!

Our Hero served with the 732nd Airlift Squadron, 514th Air Mobility Wing as a Loadmaster on C-17 Globemaster III planes and retired as a Loadmaster on a C-141 Starlifter.











If printed, the list of MSgt. Shine’s accomplishments would run off this website.  We will read off the tours of duty and accolaids at the rally point.

(but to name just a few….)

In his 30+ years he participated in:
Operation Desert Shield
Operation Desert Storm
Global War on Terrorism

Please come out and join us as we say Thank you and Happy Retirement to this American Hero!!
