Retired colonel to head group

Retired Air Force Col. Kim Wintner was named to head a tri-county committee that works to protect the military and defense industry in Northwest Florida. Wintner, of Destin, has served on the Defense Support Initiative committee for 10 years. The committee works to protect local military bases and their economic contributions to Okaloosa, Walton and Santa Rosa counties. Before Wintner retired from the Air Force 13 years ago, he served as a commander at Hurlburt Field and as a vice commander at Eglin Air Force Base. (Source: Northwest Florida Daily News, 04/30/13)
