Organizations and leadership within the 31st Fighter Wing have a variety of programs through which they highlight base personnel for their outstanding contributions to the mission. This page features three of those programs including Aviano's Finest (provided through base leadership), the Chiefs' Choice Awards (provided by the Aviano Chiefs' Group), and the Diamond Sharp Awards (provided by the Aviano First Sergeants' Council).
tabAviano Diamond Sharp Award 
Aviano Diamond Sharp Award
The Diamond Sharp Award is designed to recognize Aviano's best individuals and organizations. There is no preparation required to earn the award, one must only be noticed by their first sergeants as being among the best and brightest performers. This award also recognizes the "un-sung" hero -- Airmen or organizations that go above and beyond the call of duty and epitomize service before self by working until the job is done. These Airmen or organizations strive for excellence both on and off duty.
