86. Thanks, & Found a date for initial 147th Outstanding Unit Award
Thanks for the welcome.

I am looking for copies of the applicable Air Force Regulations of the time, so far not too much luck, since all I am seeing are the Army Regs.

On a side note I see on a personal web page that in an article attributed to Paul Burka that:

'The 147th earned its first Air Force Outstanding Unit Award in 1966 when it was proclaimed, "The most combat ready of all Air Guard units."'

Another web page says that the 147th earned their third in 1982, so that would seem to leave the date of the second awarding as a point of interest.
