LCMC-Hanscom members capture Information Dominance Awards

HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, Mass. – Two Air Force Life Cycle Management Center-Hanscom Airmen have won the 2016 Air Force Information Dominance Awards at the center-level.

The Air Force Information Dominance Awards recognize Air Force officers, enlisted, federal civilian employees, teams and units for sustained superior performance while providing information dominance and cyberspace support to Air Force or the Department of Defense missions and operations.

"Maj. Michael Holtz and Senior Airman Michael Horn will represent AFLCMC well at the Air Force Materiel Command-level," said Col. Stephen Brooks, senior materiel leader for the Special Programs Division. "Each should be commended for their exceptional performance in providing sustained cyber security support to the Air Force throughout the year. It's a very complicated mission area and they are doing phenomenal work. Best of luck to each of them at the next level."

Holtz, deputy chief of the Cybersecurity Branch, is the command’s Air Force Cyberspace Outstanding Field Grade Officer.

“Among his many accomplishments, Maj. Holtz successfully oversaw a $540 million IT portfolio that provided full-spectrum IT support to deployed coalition forces,” Brooks said.

Horn, who provides cyber support to the Special Programs Division, is the Air Force Outstanding Cyber Systems Airman.

“In the absence of his supervisor, Airman Horn led six IT personnel, more than 20 projects and remedied 3,000 trouble call tickets. His efforts averted mission failure,” said Brooks.

Each will now move on to represent the center at the AFMC-level.
