U.S. Air Force Col. Bryan T. Callahan, 435th Air Ground Operations Wing commander, presided over the award ceremony which recognized more than 200 members from four wings who conducted joint reception, staging and onward movement of the 82nd Airborne Division's Immediate Response Force across Eastern Poland.

The members distinguished themselves through their efforts to prepare the theater for Department of State Non-Combatant Evacuation operations and implementing the Department of Defense's assure and deter posture.

When teamed with the Polish military and civilian counterparts, members from both the 435 AGOW's and 521st Air Mobility Wing's won Team of the Quarter awards.
