There was a retirement ceremony for MSgt Ramona Fujimoto during the July UTA weekend. Mona worked in the 199th Fighter Squadron from many years before moving to the then newly organized 203d Airlifts Squadron. Older retirees may remember her as she was Mona Kam, before she married Maj Gordon Fujimoto, a weapons systems officer from the F-4C Phantom days. Happy Retirement Mona!
