    Gen.Charles Horner served in the United States Air Force from 1958–1994. He served in Vietnam as a fighter pilot and in Desert Storm as the commander of the U.S. and allied air forces.

    He later flew 70 missions in an F-105 as a Wild Weasel pilot in which he would fly over the jungles of Vietnam purposely trying to attract enemy fire from below, so that soldiers on the ground and bombers in the sky would have a better idea of where the enemy locations were and they would then be able to engage them.
