DAVIS-MONTHAN AIR FORCE BASE, Ariz.  — Air Combat Command announced Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Ariz., as the 2016 ACC Commander-in-Chief’s Installation Excellence award recipient.

Established in 1985 by President Ronald Reagan, the CINC Installation Excellence award recognizes the outstanding and innovative efforts of the people who maintain and operate U.S. installations.

“Congratulations to all of you,” said U.S. Air Force Col. James Meger, 355th Fighter Wing commander. “Thanks for providing a combat ready force, developing our Airmen the next generation of leaders, taking care of our families and for optimizing the resources we are given to accomplish the mission.”

The commander stressed that D-M receiving the award wouldn’t be possible without the outstanding support of the Tucson community.

“A special thanks as well to our community partners who are amazing wingmen and provided unrivaled support to the base,” he said.

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 a complimentary letter from the president.

In 2012, D-M was awarded the CINC Installation Excellence Awards.
