Alice worked with me at the 911th AW, Air Force Reserve. She was the Flight Records Manager. She was diligent in her duties, and earned many rewards through the years. Everyone loved Alice, she was outgoing, extremely social, and loved going to the base club for dinner; Also enjoyed the retirees picnic. I spent a lot of time with her through the years.... She was generous and kind, and one of my closest friends. Rest in Peace Alice!! Your friend Sue
