FARGO - For the 14th year, the North Dakota Air National Guard's 119th Wing has received the Air Force Outstanding Unit Award.

Thirty-one units compete nationally each year for this award, and only four are honored for their achievements of national or international significance.

Units that have previously received the award average three to five achievements. The 119th Wing is one of the few to be designated this award in such a high frequency, according to a news release.

When the 119th Wing received the award in 2010, it was for combat and support operations for Air Combat Command, Air Mobility Command and Air Force Global Strike Command.

The 119th Wing will be presented with the award at 3 p.m. Saturday at the North Dakota Air National Guard, 1400 32nd Ave. N., Fargo.

All unit members will receive the Air Force Outstanding Unit Award ribbon.
