The new Air Force Secretary, Michael W. Wynne, didn’t just cut and run after being sworn into office at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo. He stayed for lunch with cadets in the academy’s Mitchell Hall, where he told cadets, “This is your academy, for you to set the standard for belonging, for you to set the exemplary standard, for you to revere its ethics and its values.” Wynne graduated from West Point but served in the Air Force during seven years on active duty. His father is a retired Air Force officer, and his brother was an Air Force Academy graduate, and is buried in school’s cemetery. On his first day on the job, Wynne also penned a letter to airmen.
