Dr. Joe Leverett received the Tampa Bay Trophy during the 48th Air Mobility Command and Airlift Tanker Association convention in Nashville, Tennessee, Oct. 27, 2016.
The Tampa Bay Defense Alliance presents the trophy annually to an individual civic leader exhibiting sustained and enduring service to the community, Air Mobility Command and the Air Force.
“I’ve known and worked with Doc Leverett for many years,” said Gen. Carlton D. Everhart II, Air Mobility Command commander. “His dedication to Altus Air Force Base, its mission, and most importantly, to its Airmen contributed greatly to our mission accomplishment when I was the commander of the 97th Air Mobility Wing. Without his support, and ability to rally the community, the base would not be the success it is today.”
