Susan Davis, a longtime friend and supporter of Hill AFB, has been selected as the recipient of the Community Wingman Award for her outstanding service and dedication to the base and its Airmen.

The Community Wingman Award is a prestigious recognition given to individuals who have demonstrated exceptional commitment and enduring support for Airmen and their families through active engagement and leadership in support of the military.

Davis, who has been involved with the Top of Utah Military Affairs Committee for over a decade, said she was humbled and honored by the award.

“I love Hill Air Force Base and the amazing Airmen who serve our country. It’s been great to be involved with them over the years and I’m honored to support them,” Davis said.

Davis has served as both chair of the executive committee and chair of the membership committee of TOUMAC, a nonprofit organization that fosters a positive relationship between Hill AFB and surrounding communities.

She has also revitalized and led the speaker series, which brings together senior Air Force leadership with congressional members and civic and business leaders to discuss national defense topics and issues affecting Hill AFB.

“Susan Davis is an outstanding ally of Hill Air Force Base and exemplifies what it means to be a community Wingman,” said Col. Jeffrey Holland, 75th Air Base Wing commander.

“She is a tireless advocate for our Airmen and their families and their biggest fan. Our Airmen’s experiences are better because of the quality-of-life programs, military appreciation nights, and recognition initiatives she championed,” Holland said.” She has also educated the community on the importance of Hill Air Force Base to our nation’s security and highlighted opportunities to serve our uniformed and civilian Airmen. She is a bright example for everyone to follow.”

Davis said she plans to continue her involvement with TOUMAC, because of the support and patriotism that its members show to the military.

“The most incredible thing has been my involvement with the men and women at Hill Air Force Base that I’ve met over the years. They are all wonderful and they deserve our appreciation,” she said.
