The Air Force awarded the Gallant Unit Citation (GUC) to the 74th Fighter Squadron (FS) during a ceremony, March 14, 2019, at Moody Air Force Base, Ga.
Gen. Mike Holmes, commander of Air Combat Command, presented Airmen from the 74th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron (EFS) with the GUC for the unit’s heroic efforts while deployed in support of Operation INHERENT RESOLVE (OIR).
“The Gallant Unit Citation is the second highest honor that can be bestowed on an Air Force unit,” said Holmes. “How many … have lived up to that since we created it? You’re the fifth one – it’s quite an award and it’s something you can be really proud of as a team.”
