5th MOB earns Air Force Meritorius Unit Award

5th MOB earns Air Force Meritorius Unit Award

ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. – The 5th Combat Communications Group has received its second Air Force Meritorious Unit Award.  The 5th CCG, also known as the 5th "MOB," has won numerous unit awards, but the Meritorious Unit Award is unique because it specifically honors service in direct support of combat operations.

Created by the Secretary of the Air Force in 2004, the Meritorious Unit Award recognizes units for service either in a combat zone or directly in support of combat operations.

The award is given to units that display "outstanding devotion and superior performance of exceptionally difficult tasks as to set it apart and above other units with similar missions." 

The award recognized the 5th MOB's efforts from 5 Oct 2011 to 4 Oct 2013.  During this period, the MOB logged over 32,000 deployed man-days across 27 sites in 14 nations.
