Barksdale Trophy Presentation

Post Date:05/01/2018 2:52 PM

To celebrate the relationship between Dyess AFB and the community of Abilene, the Abilene Fire Department and Abilene Regional Airport Fire Department are excited to be the next display recipient of the Barksdale Trophy.  

The Barksdale Trophy was awarded to the City of Abilene last fall and recognizes Abilene as a community that provides the finest support to an Air Force base associated with the Global Strike Command. 

The presentation of the Barksdale Trophy to Abilene Fire Department and the Abilene Regional Fire Department will take place at the Dyess Big Country Air and Space Expo on May 12th at 10:00 AM at the Dyess AFB Fire Station.  The Barksdale Trophy will then reside between the AFD and the ARFD over the next month, and then will be passed along to the next display organization. 

Because of the anticipated volume of people that will be on base that day, early arrival is suggested.  For more information, please contact Elise Roberts.
