12/4/2011 - WILLOW GROVE AIR RESERVE STATION, PA. -- After 34 years of military service, we bid a farewell and a long military retirement to our own senior photographer, Master Sgt. Patrick Cashin. He has been a photographer with the unit for the last 11 years. Cashin served in several other branches of the military: 1973 - 1977 active duty with the US Navy, 1981 - 1987 in the US Coast Guard Reserve and 1987-2000 US Naval Reserve.
Since January 2000, Cashin has been employed as a photographer for the State of New York, Metropolitan Transportation Authority. His photos have appeared in the New York Times, New York Daily News, New York Magazine and Engineering News-Report Magazine.
His photography appeared in the exhibit "The Future Beneath Us" Construction Projects Underneath New York City, at the Transit Museum in Grand Central Terminal. In 2008, 2009 and 2010, Cashin was a finalist in Engineering News-Report Magazine "In Construction" Photo Contest. In 2010, he placed third in the Center for Railroad Photography and Art Photo Contest.
Cashin has been a behind the events staple with the 111th Fighter Wing, capturing our joys, our successes, our emotions. We have all been made better by his contributions. Best wishes to you and your family in your much deserved retirement!
