Team JSTARS Earn 2012 Maintenance Effectiveness Award

 

ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. – Maintainers from the military’s only unit that operates the E-8C Joint Surveillance Attack Radar System have earned a 2012 Air Force Maintenance Effectiveness Award.

Members of Robins’ 116th and 461st Aircraft Maintenance Squadrons received the award for “outstanding contributions to the success of the Air Force and Department of Defense maintenance mission.”

"It's truly an honor for our team to be recognized,” said Lt. Col. Bobby Nash, 116th AMXS commander. “Maintainers juggled robust home station Ready Aircrew Program requirements and higher headquarters inspections while simultaneously delivering unprecedented aircraft generation rates that met the appetite of multiple combatant commanders.”

Simply put, it’s all about the people, both aircraft maintenance squadrons working side by side,” added Lt. Col. Karen Bice, commander of the 461st AMXS.
