News: 455 AEW receives AF meritorious unit award
Story by Tech. Sgt. Rob Hazelett
KABUL, Afghanistan - The 455th Air Expeditionary Wing was recently awarded the Air Force Meritorious Unit Award to recognize the organization for outstanding achievement in direct support of combat operations during July 1, 2012 – June 30, 2013.
The MUA is given to active duty, Reserve and Guard units for exceptionally meritorious conduct in the performance of outstanding achievement in direct support of combat operations for at least 90 continuous days during the period of military operations against an armed enemy of the United States on or after Sept. 11, 2001.
The unit must display such outstanding devotion and superior performance of exceptionally difficult tasks as to set it apart and above other units with similar missions. The degree of achievement required is the same as that which would warrant award of the Legion of Merit. Superior performance of normal mission will not alone justify award of the MUA.
