There’s No Place Like Whiteman

The housing management office at Whiteman AFB, Mo., has been selected as the Air Force’s top housing installation team for Fiscal 2009. The office was recognized for its outstanding customer service and efforts in providing quality housing to Whiteman airmen and their families. “I’m very proud of my folks, and they certainly deserve the recognition,” said Lt. Col. Steve Moore, commander of Whiteman’s 509th Civil Engineer Squadron. Whiteman has one of the most robust housing-related military construction programs in the Air Force and enjoys an overall resident satisfaction index 3.2 percent above the Air Combat Command average. The Whiteman office beat out similar offices at Dyess AFB, Tex., Eielson AFB, Alaska, Hurlburt Field, Fla., and Kadena AB, Japan, for this honor. The office staff will receive the award in February at a Professional Housing Management Association seminar in Atlanta. (Whiteman report by Joe Joyner)
