The 157th Force Support Squadron Services Flight here has been selected as one of the top three Air National Guard food services operations in the nation. Entering its 15th year, the Senior Master Sgt. Kenneth W. Disney Award has been established to improve food service throughout the Air National Guard, increase morale, encourage competition, recognize excellence and honor the late Disney.

Disney was the services superintendent at McGee Tyson Air Base, Tenn., for more than 20-years where he earned a reputation for commitment to providing outstanding food service. 

Throughout the April Unit Training Assembly, there will be a composite team of military and civilian food service partners at Pease to evaluate food service operations. 

The award is co-sponsored by the Air Force and the National Restaurant Association, and provides the 157 FSS with an opportunity to showcase the team's skills and recognize top performers. 

An Award of Excellence is made to an individual selected by each evaluation team from among the installations the team visits as the most outstanding food service person.

These individuals are recognized at the Hennessy Trophy Awards Ceremony and by a scholarship program that can be used towards continuing education and advancement within the industry. 

These award winners also attend a week long Armed Forces Forum for Culinary Excellence hosted by the Culinary Institute of America.
