Trey Giglio, Principal of Universal Mechanical and Universal Plumbing Company, is a strong community leader that the Military Affairs Council is proud to have!
["The MAC enables civilians to support the mission of BAFB. Barksdale is integral to the success of our region in terms of economic impact and future economic development. The Barksdale impact on our nation's security and overall defense strategy is something that I am very proud of. It is important that we use the MAC as a vehicle to support the personnel and leadership at Barksdale using our networks to assist them both in their professional duties and their life in our community outside of work.
It is an honor to lead Celebrate Barksdale this year. I look forward to working with our team of volunteers to show our appreciation to all of the men and women at Barksdale through great food, music, games, and fellowship at our annual event."]
