Since its inception in 2008, Airport Ambassador Program volunteers have contributed nearly 20,000 hours valued at just under half-a-million dollars* helping the Tucson airport flow smoothly. SaddleBrooke Troop Support is honored and proud to be your partner helping make the MLO a welcoming place for troops, veterans and their families passing through TIA.
Special thanks to Dee Bruner, Terminal Properties Coordinator for Tucson Airport Authority, and to Marleen Miller, AA who spearheads our MLO program.
*19,886.75 total hours recorded by volunteers of the Airport Ambassador Program since Nov 2008 through May 2017. Volunteer Hour Rate is established by the Corporation for National and Community Service; calculating national and state rates.
If you’re a SaddleBrooke resident interested in this wonderful volunteer opportunity, ask about becoming an Airport Ambassador. Find a partner to carpool, get off campus once in a while, meet, greet and help airport visitors and get to know some of the finest men and women to ever serve in uniform at the MLO. Complete this Airport Ambassadors Application then attach to an EMAIL to Dee Brunner.
In addition to 30+ arrivals this weekend, on Monday, April 17, the MLO will be used as a hospitality suite for 300-400 airmen arriving between 9 AM and 6 PM.
Davis-Monthan personnel will be on site to greet and refer to their motor pool shuttle vehicles.
Just another day at the MLO, thanks to Dee, Marleen, the Airport Ambassadors and SaddleBrooke supporters who help keep the MLO open.
Over 150 people filled Vistas at HOA1 on Wednesday, March 8, 2017 to hear three “Friday Pilots.” Left to right below are Al “GAR” Rose, LtGen Tom Keck and Moose Skowron. The guys went a little long but most people stuck around to hear their fascinating stories of flying in the ‘old days,’ adapting to the new and where our military may go in the future.
Thanks to all who attended and to these three American Heroes who were very impressed by SaddleBrooke and its residents.
On Thursday, February 9, 2017, Rodney Campbell, Owner-Employee with Sundt
Corporation and a member of the local Sundt Foundation grant review committee, presented SaddleBrooke Troop Support President Bo Nanna an award of $3000 for the STS food assistance program helping military families.
Thank you Sundt Foundation for your generous assistance and for being a terrific community partner in Tucson and the entire Southwest.
