Keesler Air Force Base could soon be named the winner of the Commander in Chief's Installation Excellence Award.
The award recognizes the top installations in the U.S. Air Force, and a $1 million award comes with it.
Keesler's commander, Brigadier General Brad Spacy told WLOX News he is optimistic about what might happen.
"I hate to predict anything, because you mess with karma when you do that, but we feel very good," he said.
The final selection board will visit the base next month and do an assessment.
It will be Keesler's chance to impress the judges.
They will be looking at all aspects of the base.
"We will show them a little bit of everything," General Spacy said. "We will show them the flying operations. We will show them our big giant medical center. We will show them some of the innovation we have going in our training area. And the quality of life things we do all around it."
If Keesler wins, the money must be spent on the quality of life element of the base.
The general already has some ideas on where to put that million bucks.
"Fitness is so important to the Air Force and we have a lot of projects on the drawing board that we have not had the money to do, so we will look to those first."
In his military career, the general has been to a lot of bases, but never to McConnell Air Force Base in Kansas. That's the base that is the other finalist in this competition.
Keesler will find out this Spring if it is the winner.
But even if that does not happen, they are guaranteed second place, and in this case, second is not so bad. That base will get $500,000.
We will let you know who wins this spirited competition.
