About me

Occupation Federal Employee
Introduction My name is Rick Rynearson. My Twitter is @PickBattles. I am an Air Force command pilot and field grade officer. I grew up an Air Force dependent (my father retired a CMSgt after 32 years active duty). I have eight deployments to OEF/OIF as a close air support attack pilot, more than one thousand combat flight hours, seven Air Medals and a Distinguished Flying Cross for valor. I have a B.A. in religion from the Florida State University. My wife is a Harvard educated former Air Force intelligence officer turned civilian lawyer, former clerk for the Supreme Court of the United States, and Air Force Reserve JAG. My father, mother, and sister all work for the Air Force as contractors or government employees.
