Senior Airman Thomas Ribeiro, 60th Aerospace Ground Equipment Flight mechanic, a native of Benicia, Calif., grew up with C-5, C-17 and KC-10 aircraft from Travis Air Force Base flying overhead. When he enlisted in 2012 on the advice of his grandfather, he thought he was off to see a different part of the Air Force, but his skills were needed nearly right back where he started. Since arriving at the 60th Aerospace Ground Equipment Flight, Ribeiro has proven to be an excellent mechanic, and steadfast in his efforts to help keep Travis planes flying.
