Captain Michael Jackson, a pilot at Whiteman Air Force Base, where he is the 509th Bomb Wing Operations Group executive assistant, has been "actively participating in the wonders of Mustache March since early childhood." The Captain modestly notes that "The 'stache has traveled with me around the world on five separate deployments. It has received six Air Medals to date. If I could describe my 'stache in one sentence, it would be: 'My 'stache is a hybrid-cross between a dragon and a tiger that was raised by Chuck Norris.'"
