The Global Reach Planning Center was renamed the Gen. Duane H. Cassidy Conference Center during a dedication ceremony on October 6 at Scott Air Force Base, Illinois. Members of General Cassidy’s family along with members of the Air Mobility Command and United States Transportation Command gathered together to honor the former commander of Military Airlift Command and first commander of U.S. Transportation Command.
General Cassidy, who passed away on February 8, 2016, served as Chairman of the Airlift/Tanker Association from 1999 to 2003. He was inducted into the A/TA Hall of Fame in 2006.
The Airlift/Tanker Association is a non-profit, professional association with our membership consisting primarily of U.S. Air Force active duty, Reserve, Guard, and retired military personnel, as well as civilian and industrial supporters of the air mobility mission.
