Eglin chosen for installation award

EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. - For the second year in a row, Air Force Materiel Command selected Eglin Air Force Base for the Commander-in-Chief's 2012 Annual Award for Installation Excellence. "This is a tremendous honor," said Col. Sal Nodjomian, the 96th Air Base Wing commander. "Our Team Eglin warriors produce award-worthy work each and every day ... whether it's bedding down our new mission partners, providing world-class medical support, training tomorrow's warriors, or turning jets on the flightline." Eglin will compete against other command winners for the Air Force level award. Each finalist base will be visited by an inspection team next year. The winner is traditionally announced in April.
