DAVIS-MONTHAN AIR FORCE BASE, Ariz. -- Air Combat Command announced Davis-Monthan Air Force Base as the 2018 ACC Commander-in-Chief’s Installation Excellence award recipient.
Established in 1985 by former President Ronald Reagan, the CINC Installation Excellence award recognizes the outstanding and innovative efforts of the people who maintain and operate U.S. military installations.
“Congratulations and thank you Desert Lightning Team!” said Col. Scott C. Campbell, 355th Fighter Wing commander. “Your hard work and dedication to the mission has led us to receiving this award.”
The commander emphasized that this award wouldn’t be possible without the outstanding support of the Tucson community.
“I would also like to thank our community partners who provided amazing support to Davis-Monthan Air Force Base,” said Campbell.
D-M is now competing at the Headquarters AF level with other Major Command submissions. The winner of the Headquarters AF level is awarded a crystal Installation Excellence trophy along with an Installation Excellence flag and complimentary letter from the president.
In 2012, D-M was awarded the CINC Installation Excellence Awards.
