The 178th Wing earned the 2016 Air Force Outstanding Unit award for exceptionally meritorious service. The announcement of this award was made during the wing’s military ball held Dec. 2 in Springfield, Ohio.

 “To be selected is no small deal at all,” said Col. Gregg Hesterman, the 178th Wing commander. “It shows that during that time period the 178th performed at a superior level.”

Each of the four wings in Ohio earned this award, making the state stand out among all other units in the nation.

 “Our wing stood out because of our focus on accomplishing the mission, taking care of our Airmen, and utilizing our resources in a way that isn’t wasteful,” said Hesterman.
