Couple Wins O’Malley Award

Brig. Gen. Darrell Jones and his wife Holly have won the 2008 General and Mrs. Jerome O’Malley award. This honor recognizes the couple’s contributions to the nation and their local community when Jones commanded the 37th Training Wing at Lackland AFB, Tex., from June 2006 to January 2008. Jones is currently director of force management policy on the Air Staff. “Holly and I had outstanding community support, great honorary commanders, and a fabulous team of commanders, spouses, and senior noncommissioned officers who all came together for the common cause of serving our airmen everyday,” said Jones. “We really feel like this is a team honor that should be viewed as another award for the outstanding professionals at Lackland.” The couple will be formally recognized in an awards ceremony later this year at the Pentagon.
