Local brothers cited for Air Force service

Two Gibsonburg brothers were given lifetime achievement awards at the U.S. Air Force Academy s Annual Liaison Officer Directors Awards Banquet.

Stephen and Jonathan Younker, both retired Air Force lieutenant colonels, were cited for continuing service to the community and the Air Force by serving as admissions liaison officers for 32 years each.

They spoke to thousands of students, parents, and educators throughout Ohio about education and commissioning opportunities at the Air Force Academy and in the Air Force Reserve Officers Training Corps., driving more than 30,000 miles, and spent more than $25,000 in personal funds.
