Lt. General Marc C. Reynolds
Marc Reynolds was born in Chamberlain, a small town in south central South Dakota in 1928 and graduated from Chamberlain High School in 1946. He attended the University of Denver before entering the Air Force as an aviation cadet in January 1951.
Marc flew F-94B, F-94C, and F-101B air defense assignments between 1952 and 1961. He transitioned to reconnaissance missions in 1961, flying RB-66s. Reynolds moved to the 460th Tactical Reconnaissance Wing at Tan Son Nhut Air Base, Republic of Vietnam, in 1966 where he flew 230 combat missions over North Vietnam and the Republic of Vietnam in RF-4C’s.
He served in various leadership assignments and in July 1983 he was appointed Commander of Ogden Air Logistics Center. His final assignment was the vice Commander, Air Force Logistics Command, headquartered at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio.
Marc was a command pilot with more than 5,200 flying hours, including 475 combat hours. His military decorations and awards include the Distinguished Service Medal, Legion of Merit, Distinguished Flying Cross, Meritorious Service Medal with oak leaf cluster, Air Medal with 15 oak leaf clusters and Air Force Commendation Medal with two oak leaf clusters.
Marc’s passion for aviation continued after his Air Force retirement when he accepted a position on the Utah Aerospace Heritage Foundation board, which helped fund projects for the Hill Aerospace Museum. He eventually became its chairman, serving a total of 26 years on the board. Marc worked tirelessly in the community to raise funds and around the world to obtain aircraft displays to enhance Utah’s great Air Force museum. Through Marc’s efforts the museum added two additional hangars and it continued as Utah’s top visitor attraction.
