The USAFA Class of 2021 has chosen their Exemplar!
Brigadier Gen. James Robinson Risner (January 16, 1925 – October 22, 2013) was a general and a fighter pilot in the United States Air Force.
At his death, Air Force Chief of Staff General Mark A. Welsh III observed: "Brig. Gen. James Robinson "Robbie" Risner was part of that legendary group who served in three wars, built an Air Force, and gave us an enduring example of courage and mission success... Today’s Airmen know we stand on the shoulders of giants. One of 'em is 9 feet tall… and headed west in full afterburner."
