MacDill Earns ‘Excellent’ Rating in Major Inspection

I know that for the past few weeks, as I have been peppering the folks at the 6th Air Mobility Wing about a wide variety of issues, Jill Kelley and otherwise, they have been under the intense scrutiny of a major inspection.

All you have to do is take a look at my desk, which looks like the bottom of Oscar the Grouch’s garbage can, to know that I would not fare well during an Air Force (or any other branch) inspection.

The base scored an “excellent” rating.

Col. Scott DeThomas, wing commander, praised Team MacDill in statement to Command Post Tampa.

The superb Airmen and their civilian counterparts rose to the occasion knowing that they were faced with the largest multi-command inspection in the history of the Air Force.

Expert knowledge, disciplined thinking and overall skill thoroughly demonstrated why Team MacDill was rated “EXCELLENT.” This past week highlighted what each member of the 6th Air Mobility Wing and the 927th Air Refueling Wing brings to the table.

MacDill’s missions are not easy tasks, but the professionalism and continued due diligence guarantees that they will always be ready at a moments notice. These accomplishments would not be possible without the incredible support from the Tampa community and the military family members.

Their constant support makes it easy for Team MacDill to concentrate on its mission.
