PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo.- (from right) U.S. Air Force Gen. Jay Raymond, commander of Air Force Space Command, U.S. Air Force Gen. (Ret) Kevin Chilton, Chilton's daughter, Mary Cate Chilton, U.S. Air Force Col. Jack "2Fish" Fischer, and U.S. Air Force Col. Mike Hopkins unveil a new heritage display at Air Force Space Command Headquarters at Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado, Nov. 13, 2017. The group helped dedicate the new display, which honors all 92 Airmen who have served as astronauts. Chilton served as an astronaut and flew on three space shuttle missions, and later became the only astronaut to serve as AFSPC commander. Fischer and Hopkins are currently serving at NASA. In September, Fischer returned from a 136-day mission on the International Space Station, where he participated in hundreds of scientific experiments and two spacewalks.
