Liz Wallace I am so sorry I am just finding out about this! JHW was a big part of the best days of my life in the 47th Fighter Squadron! I am so glad I was able to get him to use that ambulance siren laugh he had a few times! I hope you are doing well!

I always had the greatest respect for Joe Henry. I worked with him many years at the 47th Fighter Squadron, Barksdale Air Force Base, LA. He was a great patriot for our country.

Ms. Liz, please accept my condolences on the passing of Col Wallace. Words cannot express the wisdom, class and kindness Col Wallace has displayed to everyone he came in contact with over the years. I had the pleasure of working with him at 10th AF and fondly recall conversations, laughs and humor. He will be greatly missed. May God bless you and keep you, may His face shine upon you and give you peace.

Had the honor to work for Col Wallace at 10th Air Force. The most rewarding years I had in one Air Force. Col Wallace was an exceptional leader, mentor and most importantly, a dear friend. I owe much of my successful career to Col Wallace’s guidance over the years. He is dearly missed.

Liz and Family,Chief Gary Johnson and I were saddened to hear about Col Wallace's passing. When we say he was the best, he was. No matter the situation or problem you presented to him for opinion, he uncannily always had an answer or after a few thoughts he would come back to you with how he would have handled. He always had time for his enlisted troops, and valued their opinions. His humor and wittiness was infectious. May God be with you Liz during this time and may He grant you Peace and Comfort. Colonel Joe Henry...… you were indeed the best ever!
