SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- Leadership from the 310th Space Wing traveled Feb. 19-21 to Orlando, Fla., to receive one of the Air Force Association's top honors.
Air Force Reserve Chief Master Sgt. Gary Brown, 310th SW command chief, was presented the Jimmy Doolittle Educational Fellow for Power Projection award from the Honorable Deborah Lee James, Secretary of the Air Force, together with Gen. Mark A. Welsh III, Air Force Chief of Staff. The award recognizes the wing for its enlisted and officer members who have worked to promote public understanding and support for aerospace power, according to the AFA.
The AFA indicates that being named a Doolittle Fellow honors the many men and women who have supported the Air Force and Air Force Association from both organization's inceptions.
While receiving the award, Brown was also featured with AFA Central Florida Chapter President Bill Palmby, Air Force Gala Chairman Tim Brock and Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force James Cody.
