About Paul

I’m Paul Woodford: English major, retired US Air Force lieutenant colonel, fighter pilot. I flew the F-15 Eagle in Arizona, Virginia, Alaska, the Netherlands, and Okinawa before retiring in 1997. From 1997 to 2005 I worked as a defense contractor, training fighter and recce pilots at USAF bases in the USA and the Pacific. I worked for the VA Hospital from 2005 to 2008, when I retired again, this time (I hope) for keeps.

Donna and I have lived in Tucson, Arizona since 1997. We’ve been married since 1965.
