SPANGDAHLEM AIR BASE, Germany --
Colonel Edward (Ed) LaGrou
52nd Medical Group
Where and When you Joined the AF:
I enlisted in October 1986, then directly commissioned as a Medical Service Corp Officer in October 1995.
Off-duty time is for:
Enjoying time with friends and family, preferably in the outdoors!
- Ramstein AB, Germany (Aug 16-Jun 17)
- Eglin AFB, Florida (Jul 13- Jul 16)
- Misawa AB, Japan (Jul 11-Jul 13)
Mission – Medically Ready Airmen, both in our wartime portfolio and Wing readiness
Leadership – Developing our Airmen; building the AF’s bench
Community – Caring for our Wingman and their families; Community ambassadors
Two tenants underpin my leadership philosophy. First, regardless of our respective rank, position or title, every Airmen has a leadership role that is critical to advancing the mission. Second, reputation and teamwork matter greatly, and trust is the foundation to achieve both.
