ALBERT J. EDMONDS AWARD

In recognition of his unique role as the catalyst in forming this Association, on 15 May 1997, AFC4A hosted a dinner to honor Lieutenant General Edmonds on the occasion of his retirement from active duty.  At that function the Association announced the creation of the Albert J.

Giddings, USAF (Ret.).  On 27 September 2000 General Edmonds presented the second award to Colonel James R. Lauducci, USAF (Ret'd).  On 15 April 2004 Generals Edmonds and Fairfield presented the third award to Major General Charles E.
