We at the McChord Air Museum Foundation want to welcome our new Administrator / Curator Mr. Ray Jordan. As those familiar with the McChord Museum know, the recently retired Master Sergeant is very familiar sight around McChord, MSgt Ray Jordan has been the Administrator/Curator for the McChord Air Museum/ Heritage Center many years now, on loan from the 62d Airlift Wing’s 62d Maintenance Squadron (62 MXS).

A little more than a year ago a decision was made by the command of the 62d AW to convert some of the bases non-mission critical jobs staffed by active Military personnel into civilian slots, the Museums Administrator position was one of the jobs selected. After a lengthy nationwide search which produced many qualified candidates, McChord officials confirmed what we at the Museum Foundation have known for years; Ray was the man for the job ! 

As of 28 November, the Administrator/Curator position became a civilianized with a familiar face behind the desk, Mr. Ray Jordan - Congratulations from all of us at the Foundation !
