12/30/2010 - PATRICK AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- Air Force Space Command has selected the 45th Space Wing for an Air Force Outstanding Unit Award for exceptionally meritorious service from Oct. 1, 2008, to Sept. 30, 2010.

"We are honored to be named one of the Air Force's outstanding units," said Brig. Gen. Ed Wilson, 45th Space Wing commander. "This was simply a superb performance by the whole team to deliver complete mission success for two consecutive years. The wing has made huge impacts around the world whether by launching critical spacecraft into orbit to support troops in combat, supporting our manned spaceflight program, or deploying servicemen and women into contested regions in defense of the nation. The team should be proud of its accomplishments."

The Air Force Outstanding Unit Award is awarded for meritorious service that clearly sets the unit above and apart from similar units. All members assigned to the wing and designated subordinate units during the period of the award are eligible.
