A Family of Chief Master Sergeants:

Three generations of Air Force chief master sergeants in the Shreiner family have served a total of 72 years. Harold Shreiner, Larry Shreiner, and Glenn Shreiner have a history with USAF that dates back to 1943, when Harold joined the Army Air Corps, serving as a B-25 engineer and gunner. Now Glenn Shreiner, an air traffic chief controller at Altus AFB, Okla., is the third generation chief master sergeant, reports Michael Fletcher. Glenn enlisted at Scott AFB, where his father Larry was a chief master sergeant at Military Airlift Command headquarters. “We have all stayed with the Air Force because of the challenges, responsibilities, and opportunities the civilian world could not match,” Glenn said.
