Abstract : On September 9, 1994, then-Lieutenant General Joseph W. Ashy, U.S. Air Force, his enlisted aide and his cat departed from Naples, Italy as the only passengers aboard an Air Force C-141B aircraft on a nonstop 14 hour flight to his next assignment as the Commander of the United States Space Command (SPACECOM), Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado. The Air Mobility Command (AMC) dispatched the 200 passenger aircraft from its station at McGuire AFB, New Jersey, solely to transport General Ashy from Naples to Colorado. The AMC also arranged for two aerial refuelings by KC-135 tankers enroute to Colorado. On September 10, General Ashy received a series of briefings at the SPACECOM regarding his new assignment and responsibilities. On September 11, General Ashy and his wife flew on an Air Force C-21 executive jet to Washington, DC for a ceremony the next morning presided over by the Air Force Chief of Staff in which General Ashy was promoted to the grade of General (0-10). After the ceremony, General and Mrs. Ashy returned to Colorado on the C-21.
