BEALE AIR FORCE BASE, Calif., --
The 2011 Fourth Quarter Awards luncheon was held Jan. 19 at the Recce Point Club to recognize Airmen and civilian employees who had been graded on leadership, job performance, self improvement and base and community involvement.
Nominees had won at the squadron and group levels prior to being awarded at the wing level, with the difficult task of selecting winners made by various panels of officers, enlisted and civilian personnel from Team Beale.
Furthermore, each room up for Dorm Room of the Quarter had been thoroughly inspected by each nominee's first sergeant, group superintendent and the command chief.
"This individual award is something that couldn't have been achieved without everyone else in my office," said Richard McCarthy. "After retiring from active duty I am lucky to be able to work with the same group of people who make excellence easy."
After lunch and the presentation of awards, Brig. Gen. Paul McGillicuddy, gave the closing comments for the ceremony and thanked family members, supervisors and members of the local community who support Beale Airmen.
"All of the Airmen at Beale show excellence as they lay the groundwork for our missions throughout the world," he said. "It's inspirational to see all the nominees here before us and an honor to be the commander of the 9th Reconnaissance Wing."
