SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. - Staff Sgt. Abigail Foster from Fairchild Air Force Base, Wash., participated in the Air Mobility Command Icon competition at Scott Air Force Base, Ill., Oct. 21, 2010.

Foster was the base-level winner at Fairchild and competed with 10 other competitors for the title of "AMC Icon."

Based loosely on the television show "American Idol," AMC Icon is an AMC commander's initiative to showcase the vocal talents of AMC airmen. Each AMC base holds Icon contests in July and August to determine their representatives for the command final which took place, Oct. 21.

AMC personnel assigned to Air National Guard, Air Force Reserve, en route and tenant units geographically separated from an AMC base compete under the "affiliate" category. However, personnel stationed on or near an AMC base enter the contest via the base-level talent competition.

"AMC has some exceptional performers and Icon is their opportunity to shine," said Mr. Sam Parker, command program manager for AMC Icon.

Staff Sgt. Aisha Smith from MacDill Air Force Base, Fla., won the competition. Senior Airman Naomi Scott of Dover Air Force Base, Del., earned second place while Senior Master Sgt. James Warrick of Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J., earned third place.
