Joint Base Charleston, S.C. -- The 628th Force Support Squadron Military Personnel Section recently won the Gerrit D. Foster, Jr. Outstanding Military Personnel Program in the 2011 A1 Awards.

The A1 Awards Program recognizes the best performers and best installation level programs within manpower, personnel, education and training and services.

From the period of Oct. 1, 2010 to Sept. 30, 2011, the 628th FSS/MPS was recognized as number one out of 12 military personnel sections in all of Air Mobility Command and number one out of seven in Joint Bases MPS. The section was also ranked number one out of 81 MPS Air Force-wide in Air Expeditionary Force assignments.

JB Charleston's MPS' accomplishments also included processing 152 separations, 156 retirements and 57 discharges with zero discrepancies from Headquarters Air Force Personnel Center.

"There has been more transformation in the FSS/MPS and services functions than any single unit across our entire Air Force," said Lt. Col. Danny Davis, 628th FSS commander. "Embracing this transformation has allowed the JB Charleston FSS to adapt to become a more responsive, relevant unit focused on providing service to the world's greatest customers - our Airmen and Sailors."

"Obtaining 'Best MPS in the USAF' during a time of austere manning, dwindling resources and increased deployments for MPS members speaks volumes about the caliber and resiliency of our Airmen and civilians who make up the MPS team."
