Waiting in the wings

U.S. Air Force Capt. Pat Williams and wife Teri Williams boogied the night away at Holiday in Dixie Military Ball March 24 at Barksdale Air Force Base Hoban Hall.

Pat must have one of the Air Force’s most interesting jobs. He is the aide to Lt. Gen. Bob Elder, head of the mighty 8th U.S. Air Force.

"He is with the general more than he is with me," quipped Pat’s cute wife.

The night of the ball, for instance, Pat was within eye sight of Elder most of the evening. He held coins at the ready for Elder to present band members from the "Band of the Gulf Coast" with whom he performed on stage as a drummer.

Not easy to get this job, I understand. You have to undergo a biggie interview process. And, of course, get along with the general — famously.
