The winner of this year's Richard T. Kight Award has been announced. In his notification message, Lt Gen John W. Raymond, AF-A3, wrote in part:

"I am pleased to announce the winner of the 2016 Air Rescue Association Richard T. Kight Award is Master Sergeant Maurice Muro of the 31st Rescue Squadron, Kadena Air Base, Japan. As you know, this award is presented annually by the Air Rescue Association to recognize the individual whose exemplary efforts throughout the year have contributed to the overall effectiveness of the rescue mission through management, innovation, or other outstanding achievement. This award is an excellent means of recognizing the outstanding accomplishments of Airmen who reflect the spirit of the rescue motto originally coined by General Kight: "These Things We Do That Others May Live."
