The ADC “A” Awards of Oregon’s 142nd Fighter Group
Colonel Patrick E. O’Grady, Commander, 142nd Fighter Group, at left, holds an ADC “A” Award flag and certificate he just received from Major General Archie M. Burke, Commander, 25th Air Division, at right, (shorter officer of two standing) during an award presentation ceremony held in the aircraft maintenance hangar at Portland ANG Base, Portland, Oregon, on March 15, 1970. The officer standing next to Major General Burke is likely Colonel Merle F. Allen, Jr., then Chief of Air Operations and Training Division, National Guard Bureau, who presented the 142nd with the Flying Safety Award of the National Guard Bureau for the second year in a row.
