There were mixed feelings in the room as BG Bob Marion, Program Executive Officer (PEO), Aviation performed the retirement ceremony for Mr. Rusty Weiger, SES on December 18, 2015. Mr. Weiger has been the Deputy PEO for almost 7 years. Prior to his assignment at PEO Aviation headquarters, he was the deputy project manager for cargo helicopters. He began his civilian service as an intern in 1984. BG Marion spoke about all the accomplishments that Mr. Weiger had been a part of from idea to completion over his over 30 years of service to the United States Army. MG (R) Tim Crosby attended and spoke about the time that he had served with him in cargo helicopters and PEO Aviation headquarters. He will truly be missed in the aviation community.
