GRAND FORKS AIR FORCE BASE -- During a briefing April 29, the Air Mobility Command Inspector General Team briefed the results of the wing's Unit Compliance Inspection. They briefed the results of the Logistics Standardization and Evaluation Program, and Aircrew Stan/Eval Visit earlier.

The wing earned a grade of excellent on all three inspections and garnered numerous unit grades of outstanding as well as various team excellence and individual excellence awards.

The grades were given after a week of vigorous and meticulous inspections by AMC subject matter experts who looked at the wing unit's ability to conduct their day-to-day operations. AMC/IG inspectors also looked at the wing's ability to respond to a mass casualty, terrorist attack on the base through an exercise April 23.

"The sweep of 'Excellent' ratings for the UCI, LSEP, and ASEV is a tribute to all the months of hard work by the Warriors of the North," said Lt. Col. Joe Williams, 319th Air Refueling Wing Inspector General. "While providing unmatched global air refueling support, the Wing was able to demonstrate an exemplary competence in doing their jobs by the book. It's simply amazing that with about half the number of airman we had 20 years ago and while fighting a war, the Wing is able to produce not only great results -- but better results year after year. Everyone should be very proud of their accomplishments!"
