member of the Air Force on his retirement from government service: Mr. 
Herman Bell. Herman will retire this week as the chief of public 
affairs of Tyndall Air Force Base, capping a career of more than 46 
years of government service.
  Herman enlisted in the Air Force in 1972 and retired as a master

as they move on to a new chapter in life.
