Speaker: General Henry (Butch) Viccellio, Jr., USAF (Retired)

(Diane heard General Viccellio speak and was very impressed, so invited him to speak at our November Veterans luncheon, however that is his 50th wedding anniversary, so October it is!)

General Viccellio grew up as an “Air Force Brat,” and has relocated some 33 times during his 78 years.  Following High School in Victoria, TX, he attended the U.S Air Force Academy, graduating in 1962.  During his 35 years as an officer, General Viccellio flew a number of  fighter aircraft, including a combat tour in Vietnam and Thailand.  Between flying assignments, he also fulfilled responsibilities in personnel management, logistics, legislative liaison with the U.S. Senate and as Director of the Joint Staff.  He has commanded at the Flight, Squadron, Wing and Major Air Command levels.

Following his retirement, General Viccellio assumed responsibilities as President, USAA Property & Casualty Insurance Group in San Antonio, where he supervised Auto and Property Insurance services to over 5 million current and former military members and their families.

General Viccellio is married to the former Deborah Wood of Mexico City.  They live on Bainbridge Island, WA, have two children, Pilar and Benjamin, and celebrate 50 years together next month.
