Thoughts on the 58th Bomb Wing:

Jack will be remembered for his "joie de vivre", his love of music, his passion for flying and his charm and conviviality. He was an unwavering patriot who spent most of his working life serving this country and was humble about his military successes, often saying that he was just doing his job and that many others of his generation were doing the same.


Lt. Col. Gregg passed away on July 16, 2008. He is buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
