SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. -- Please join me in congratulating our Air Mobility Command Outstanding Airmen of the Year and First Sergeant of the Year.

These Airmen have done an incredible job serving our nation, and I'm inspired by their selfless, behind the scenes efforts that support our mission on a daily basis. It takes a great personal commitment on their part, and I couldn't be more proud of them.

I know each of our Outstanding Airmen will attest they couldn't have earned this honor on their own. Instead, it is the collective support of the entire mobility family that has propelled these individuals along their path of success. From supervisors who recognized their superlative efforts, to coworkers who encouraged them to stretch and grow, these Air Force leaders have gratefully benefitted from an extraordinary support network.

Speaking of support networks, we must never forget the families who kept the home front going when these Airmen were asked to pack their bags and deploy on a moment's notice. Military families are truly the unsung heroes, and these Airmen simply could not have done this without them.

So please congratulate these fantastic Mobility Warriors as they represent the best of the best in Air Mobility Command:
