Air Force officials announced Nicole R. Bridge of Ramstein Air Base, Germany, as the 2016 Joan Orr Air Force Spouse of the Year Award winner.

Bridge, the spouse of Tech. Sgt. Matthew J. Bridge assigned to the 86th Security Forces Squadron, oversaw and managed the Ramstein Enlisted Spouses' Association as its president. She devoted 1,200 volunteer hours, organized 125 events and generated $250,000 for distribution into the local community.

The award, sponsored by the Air Force Association, recognizes the significant contributions made by non-military spouses of Air Force military members.

The AFA will present the award to Bridge in September at the 2016 Air and Space Conference and Technology Exposition in Washington, D.C.
