MacGyver actor wins Air Force honor

Sept. 9, 2004 at 6:53 PM   |   Comments

WASHINGTON, Sept. 9 (UPI) -- The U.S. Air Force is honoring MacGyver, er, Richard Dean Anderson, for his "positive depiction" of the Air Force over the last seven years.

Anderson, once the fiendishly clever hero/secret agent in the TV series "MacGyver," has for the last seven years produced and starred in the cable Sci-Fi channel's "Stargate SG-1," playing Air Force Col. Jack O'Neill, commanding officer of a team of explorers.

This season, O'Neill has been promoted to brigadier general and will be stuck at Cheyenne Mountain, the underground command center made famous by the movie "War Games."

Air Force Chief of Staff John Jumper will perform a cameo on the popular science fiction series and will be on hand to honor Anderson at the 57th Air Force Anniversary Dinner in Washington Tuesday.

There was no word, however, of a quid pro quo.
