The Oregon Air National Guard’s First Outstanding Unit Award

The Commander, Air Defense Command, Lt Gen Robert M. Lee, USAF (left) speaks as he presents Col Leon W. Gray (right), Portland Air Defense Sector (POADS) Commander, the Air Force Outstanding Unit Award in a formal outdoor ceremony at Adair Air Force Station, Oregon in 1962. Lt Col Robert L. Stacklie, 123rd Fighter-Interceptor Squadron Commander, looks on as seen in between the two general officers, his face facing the camera. POADS achieved a first as an air defense sector in being awarded the Air Force’s Outstanding Unit Award for the period June 8, 1960 to April 30, 1962. The sector headquarters at Adair AFS and its nine operational fighter-interceptor and radar squadrons (including the 123rd FIS) received the AFOUA for this period. The POADS Semi-Automatic Ground Environment (SAGE) Direction Center (DC-13) blockhouse looms behind the official party of the award ceremony. (142nd Wing History Archive)
