Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Dennis M. Krebs participated in Operation Iraqi Freedom at a forward-deployed operating location overseas.
Operation Iraqi Freedom is the official name given to military operations involving members of the U.S. armed forces and coalition forces participating in efforts to free and secure Iraq.

Members from all branches of the U.S. military and multinational forces are also assisting in rebuilding Iraq's economic and governmental infrastructure, and training and preparing Iraqi military and security forces to assume full authority and responsibility in defending and preserving Iraq's sovereignty and independence as a democracy.
The sergeant is a command chief master sergeant with 27 years of military service.
He is the grandson of Gerald Krebs of Agnew Road and is a 1978 graduate of Bethel Park Senior High School.
