Ronald Webb received an education degree from IU in 1960. He served in the U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam War and was held as a prisoner of war in Hanoi for nearly six years after a mid-air collision led to his capture. After his release, he continued to serve in the Air Force and earned two Silver Stars before retiring as a colonel in 1985. President Ronald Reagan appointed him a special assistant to the administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration, and President George H.W. Bush appointed him FAA aviation assistant to the Secretary of Transportation.
