Air Combat Command recently announced the 49th Force Support Squadron as the 2011 Major General Eugene L. Eubank Award winner.

The award recognizes Holloman as having the best small base Force Support Squadron in the Command.

Holloman must now compete with other MAJCOM winners for the Air Force level award. In addition to award package scoring, the competition process will involve a customer satisfaction survey, and for the final two bases, a site visit.

This is a great honor for our squadron and the entire base. Holloman may not have the best facilities, but what we lack in equipment we make up for with hard work and great attitudes.

Part of the judging process is based on surveys that were emailed out to a random sample of customers last week. The two bases with the best results will compete in the finals.

You may hold the key to this award! If you received one of these surveys, please dig it out of your recycle bin and remember all the good times. The survey only takes five minutes to fill out!

And by good times I mean:
- Fall Fest
- Pictures with Santa
- Easter Egg hunt
- Sports Days
- Spring Fling
- Burritos at the Bowling Center!
- Wine Tasting
- Waffle Station at the DFAC
- Live Music and Comedy Nights
- Memorial Day Pool Opening
- Dueling Pianos!
- BDU Bash
- Bands on the Mesa
- ORI Oasis Specials
- Dive-in and Drive-in Pool Parties
- HDTV Upgrade in Desert Sands Sports Bar
- Gourmet Deli Bar at the DFAC
- Give Parents a Break
- Oktoberfest
- Air Show
- HOSC Auction
- Outdoor Rec River Rafting Trips
- HUGE Independence Day Blowout (Red, White and BOOM!)
- and soooooooo much more!

To be considered for the 'Best in Air Force' is a testament to the passion for our role on this base; and that is to make life better for our community.

If you've ever appreciated something our FSS has ever done, the one thing I ask is if you received a survey to show your appreciation by filling it out.

Or as we like to say in FSS, 'show us some love'! Survey completion deadline is Dec. 30.
