AFA Salutes 2011 Team of the Year

Last week AFA announced the Air Force First Sergeants as being honored as the 2011 Team of the Year!

Each year the Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force, along with the major command-level command chief master sergeants, selects a specific Air Force career field to be recognized as the “Team of the Year.” They then select individual members within that career field who are professionals who clearly display superior technical expertise, attract the praise of their superiors and provide leadership and inspiration to others.

Last year's Team of the Year was the Air Force Remotely Piloted Aircraft Sensor Operators, and the 2009 team was comprised of Airmen in the explosive ordnance disposal career field.

AFA is always pleased to pay tribute to these Airmen and their important contribution to the Air Force by hosting a Team of the Year Awards Ceremony and Reception, in addition to an exclusive four-day program that also includes visits with Air Force Leaders at the Pentagon, a visit with individual team member’s congressman on Capitol Hill and other special events throughout the nation’s capital.

This year's ceremony will take place at the Key Bridge Marriott in Arlington, Va., on May 2, 2011, at 6 p.m. Come show your support for the 2011 Team of the Year!
