HOMESTEAD AIR RESERVE BASE, Fla. -- Col. Guy Rudolph Moise retired from the Air Force during a ceremony here April 7.

Moise, born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, moved to the United States when he was 17 years old. According to Moise, in America he believed he could benefit from a wide range of opportunities and dedicated himself to pursuing the American dream.

Moise went on to earn a doctorate degree in Osteopathic medicine from the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine, a Juris Doctor from the University Of Miami School Of Law, and a Flight Surgeon Degree from the United States Air Force School of Aerospace medicine.

Moise started his military career as a medical officer in the US Public Health Service for four years. He later joined the Air Force Reserve where he served as Chief of Aerospace Medicine, then as Chief of Hospital Services at the 482nd Medical Squadron. Over the past two years, he has served at the 622nd Regional Support Group at Dobbins Air Reserve Base, Ga., and at the 622 Aeromedical Staging Squadron at Robins Air Force Base, Ga.

"It has been an honor and a privilege to have served in the Air Force Reserve," said Moise during his retirement ceremony. "America has been very good to me and serving in the military was the best way to give back."
