HENDERSON, NV – (September 24, 2019) – That Others May Live Foundation (TOMLF) has named the 58th Rescue Squadron (RQS), Nellis Air Force Base, as the 2019 USAF Rescue Squadron of the Year. TOMLF has sponsored the annual award since 2012, given to one Air Force rescue unit that rises above the others, using a variety of criteria to determine outstanding overall squadron accomplishments. Criteria include mission results, unit and individual accomplishments, and community relations impact.

“Our evaluation team was extremely impressed with how much the Total Rescue Force has accomplished in the past year. It is always amazing to read of all the great accomplishments of our USAF Rescue Warriors.” said TOML Chairman Todd Bolger. “The 58th RQS stood out this year, however, for their outstanding mission efforts, balanced with their exceptional efforts supporting base and community relations. We congratulate 58th Commander Lt. Col. Williams and the entire team for a great job!”

The mission of the 58th Rescue Squadron is to organize, train, and equip a rescue force and combat support team that performs with courage and honor to deploy, employ to rescue anyone, anywhere, anytime, and redeploy. These Things (They) Do, That Others May Live to return with honor!

The award will be presented on Saturday, October 5, 2019 at the Air Rescue Ball in Tucson, Arizona at the DoubleTree Suites. The public is invited to join the evening of Rescue Community camaraderie and celebration. Tickets can be purchased at www.thatothersmaylive.org/events.
