FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  KNIGHT AEROSPACE MEDICAL SYSTEMS LLC adds Air Force General (retired) William M.  Fraser III to its Advisory Board. 

November 19, 2014, San Antonio, TX.  Knight Aerospace Medical Systems (KAMS) is pleased to announce the addition of General (retired) Will Fraser to its Advisory Board.  Fraser, who retired in July of this year, is a highly decorated Air Force Officer whose career culminated as one of nine Combatant Commanders.  A 1974 graduate of Texas A&M University, General Fraser’s vast experience makes him uniquely qualified to serve as an Adviser to KAMS.  During his 40 years of service, he led large-scale, diverse, global organizations where he earned a reputation as a motivational leader, strategic thinker and change agent who delivered solutions to the most complex challenges. 

In his most recent assignment as Commander of the US Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM), he answered directly to the President of the United States and Secretary of Defense.  USTRANSCOM is the single manager responsible for global air, land, and maritime transport for the Department of Defense. He led over 130,000 personnel annually executing over $12 billion in business and completed the most comprehensive and collaborative strategic planning effort in the command’s twenty-five year history.

Fraser’s additional assignments included Commander of Air Combat Command consisting of over 130,000 personnel operating over 2000 aircraft at more than 300 locations worldwide and  Vice Chief of Staff of the Air Force, where he presided over the Air Staff and served as a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Requirements Oversight Council and Deputy Advisory Working Group. He led the organizing, training and equipping of over 690,000 Airmen serving in the United States Air Force and provided oversight of a $120 billion annual budget.  As Assistant to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, he represented the Chairman or Vice Chairman in the White House, traveled internationally as the Military Advisor to the Secretary of State and served as the Middle East Peace Process Roadmap Monitor.  

Fraser held a variety of additional assignments throughout his career including command of two bomb wings and an aviation operations group. His extensive experience in wartime, contingency, and humanitarian relief operations includes Operation Southern and Northern Watch, Operation Desert Thunder, Operation Allied Force, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Operation Enduring Freedom.
