General George T. Babbitt (81) is a retired
United States Air Force
four-star general who served as Commander,
Air Force Materiel Command (COMAFMC), from 1997 to 2000.

As a teenager in the late 1950s, Babbitt joined the Ventures rock
group, replacing the original drummer, Skip Moore. Just before
the band gained fame with their huge hit "Walk Don’t Run" in
1960, Babbitt had to drop out because he was not old enough to
play the nightclubs and bars the band was beginning to work in.

Babbitt was commissioned in 1965 through the Reserve Officer
Training Corps
program at the University of Washington. He
trained as an aircraft maintenance officer and served as officer
in charge of fighter flight lines in the United States, the Pacific
and Europe.

He twice commanded aircraft maintenance squadrons and was
deputy commander for maintenance of a European F-15 wing.

Prior to assuming command of Air Force Materiel Command,
Babbitt was director of the Defense Logistics Agency at
Fort
Belvoir
, Virginia. (Wikipedia)
