Base honors civic leaders with 2016 Cornerstone Award
Colonel Charles Brown Jr., 19th Airlift Wing commander, presented the 2016 Team Little Rock Cornerstone Award to Oliver and Billie Ann Myers Jan. 31, 2017, during an annual Community Council Meeting.
The Team Little Rock Cornerstone Award was created to honor a prominent civic leader who exemplifies outstanding service and commitment to the men and women of Little Rock Air Force Base and continues to strengthen the foundation set by the Founding Fathers of Little Rock Air Force Base. The Myers achieved this through their life-long commitment to supporting the military. As Col. Brown made the announcement, he said they embodied the true representation of what it means to be not only leaders in the local community but steadfast supporters of the base and its Airmen.
“There’s a special bond that develops when we see those that continue to serve even after they have left the military service for civil service,” Brown said. “They as leaders see the value in what we, (Team Little Rock), do so they gather together with the local community and provide services by looking out for each other, taking care of families who’s loved ones are deployed and continuing to serve selflessly.”
