Air Force Awards
June 21, 2012
In a class of their own
standing performances behind every
one of the 2011 awards covered a
period of great pressure on Air Force
to reform the way it does business.
"This will be an ongoing challenge
as we make adjustments to ensure
we continue to deliver first rate air
power within a constrained budget,"
AIRMSHL Brown said.
"To the recipients, you are the
ambassadors of our continuous
improvement. Moreover, I see your
approach delivering real benefits
for Air Force, making the difficult
choices, cutting out the waste where
it exists and focusing your efforts on
adding value and delivering the quality
outcomes," he said.
"What I need from your peers is
the sort of commitment that you have
given, to ensure that we remain a most
capable, responsive and flexible force
in our region, if not the world.
"I congratulate and commend
the men and women and those units
being honoured tonight as their
efforts have set them apart from their
peers during 2011."
