The Man Behind the Care

July 19, 2011


W.L. Starling, maintenance director of San Antonio’s Air Force Village I, takes home this year’s Texas Association of Homes and Services for the Aging (TAHSA) Housing Professional of the Year Award.

A sixteen-year Air Force Village veteran, Starling prides himself on providing personalized, warm and care-driven service to the home’s residents. “Being retired from the Air Force myself, I’ve always felt a strong bond with our residents, whom are all retired military officers or their spouses,” recounted Starling. “…The ‘little things’ mean a great deal to our residents and I’ve made it a point throughout my career to provide a level of service that included the smallest details…. [They go] a long way….”

Both Starling’s advanced experience as a military training instructor and human resources specialist and his friendly, affable and open demeanor have made him a valued and charismatic fixture at Air Force Village I.

Starling currently is the Safety Manager at Air Force Village I, San Antonio.
