Patrick Air Force Base, Fla. -- Commanders from the 45th Space Wing hosted local community leaders at the annual Commander's Civilian Military Community Relations Council Banquet, Jan. 24 at the Tides.
During the Banquet, Keith Houston was named CivMil's 2014 Member of the Year.
CivMil chairman Norm Wolfinger described Houston as the go-to person for anything that CivMil has to accomplish. He said that Houston not only did a first-class job as the chair for the golf tournament. He also helped raise money for a life-size bronze statue to honor U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class Melvin Morris, Medal of Honor Recipient, who was an honored guest at the event.
"It was awesome and overwhelming to be named CivMil member of the year," Keith Houston said. "The organization goes back more than 50 years, and some of the names on the trophy are pillars of the community and have been for decades. It is an amazing group of people, and I am proud to be a part of it."
The support CivMil members give to the uniformed men and women of Team Patrick-Cape allows the 45th Space Wing to accomplish their ever-increasing mission.
"Over the next few years, the 45th Space Wing will be the busiest we have ever been," said Brig. Gen. Nina Armagno, 45th Space Wing commander. "We are very happy to have the members of CivMil as part of our team, working to help us accomplish our mission. People like Keith Houston embody what it is to give back, and we appreciate all that he does to support the important mission of Team Patrick-Cape."
