LITTLE ROCK AIR FORCE BASE – Senior Airman Danielle Ziemba, a bioenvironmental engineering technician assigned to the 19th Operational Medical Readiness Squadron at Little Rock Air Force Base has received the Air Force’s 2023 Government Employees Insurance Company (GEICO) Military Service Award.
The prestigious GEICO Military Service Awards honor one enlisted member from each of the six Armed Services and the National Guard for achievements and contributions to their military and civilian communities. A key to Ziemba’s success has been her extensive history of service. She became Little Rock AFB’s First Four Council President, guiding 620 peers through 12 professional development seminars and organizing three dorm resident events. She also led an 18-person team in restocking the pantry for Feed the Veterans, an organization with the only veteran-dedicated pantry in the state.
“I have always had a passion for leading,” Ziemba said. “Serving as president presented an opportunity to blend my passion for leadership with a sense of purpose, ensuring that every ounce of dedication and effort exerted into this role would be channeled to directly benefit Airmen and the community.”
Most recently, Ziemba collaborated with seven non-profit organizations, leading 212volunteers through 110 hours of community service, spearheading three fundraisers for in-state tornado relief. This is not the first time Ziemba has been recognized for her service to others, winning the United States Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award which recognized her for contributing over 5,000 volunteer hours.
