BUCKLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- The 460th Space Wing Command Post was recently named the Air Force Space Command, Command Post of the year for 2010. Additionally, several members of the command post won individual awards.
Senior Airman Darlene Slaton was named the AFSPC Command Post Airman of the year. Staff Sgt. Andrea Alvarado is the AFSPC Command Post NCO of the Year. Master Sgt. Juan Silva earned the title of AFSPC Command Post Senior NCO of the year.
According to Maj. Robert Kittell, 460th Space Wing Command Post, winning the awards was an especially big accomplishment because of all the additional activities the Airmen were involved in, including education, base leadership groups as well as community events.
"I couldn't have been prouder!" said Major Kittell. "Chief Master Sgt. [Michael] Bobbitt, our MAJCOM Functional Manager, had driven up from Peterson to present the awards. He just kept pulling the awards out of his giant box. After all the individual awards were presented, he said, 'Now, it would be a little silly if you didn't win the CP of the year after sweeping the individual awards.' He then pulled out the AFSPC CP of the Year plaque."
