Mountain Home Air Force Base has won the 2007 Commander-In-Chief's Installation Excellence Award. MHAFB was selected as this year's best Air Force Installation from among 85 Air Force facilities located world-wide.
Making the award even more significant is that fact that the mission at MHAFB is currently in transition with all F16 and F15C aircraft leaving the base and being replaced by F15E Strike Eagles from Elmendorf AFB, Alaska.
366th Fighter Wing Commander Colonel Tony Rock urged MHAFB personnel to maintain the high standards that won the award by saying "If you focus on the mission and combat capability and take care of your folks the accolades and rewards will follow........As actor John Wayne once said, 'it ain't braggin if you can do it'". The award will be presented to MHAFB commanders at a Pentagon ceremony on May 4th.
