Phyllis Stillman of the Air Force Manpower Agency retired after more than 32 years of civil service. The ceremony took place Dec. 2 in the Kurt Stillman Conference Room at Bldg. 854, the same conference room dedicated in honor of her husband, the former Air Education and Training Command chief of acquisition and data management, on April 24 after his death.

"There is no other place I'd rather be today, on my last day of service, than in this conference room named for Kurt," Stillman said. "I was proud to cut the ribbon dedicating the room, and to end my civil service career here is the perfect ending for me."

Stillman began her active-duty Air Force career in 1974 and served in the cryogenics and personnel career fields. After her honorable discharge, she started in civil service in 1979 at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Mont.

Over the next 32 years, she held several important leadership positions in the manpower career field, including Air Force Suggestion Program manager and chief of performance management and planning for the Air Force Manpower Agency.
