The 926th Group was recognized as a 2011 Air Force Outstanding Unit in an Air Force Reserve Command announcement May 7.

"I'm extremely proud of the members of the 926th Group for leading the way and setting the standard in the U.S. Air Force Reserve," said Col. John Breeden, 926th Group commander.

"The 926th Group is paving the way for Total Force Integration operations both stateside and overseas. We have Airmen volunteering to deploy all over the world to augment the Regular Air Force and the joint services in the fight against terrorism."

The group is made up of seven squadrons and one detachment spread across the nation. Through TFI, its members are integrated into RegAF units providing sustained expertise and accomplishing the mission of the United States Air Force Warfare Center.

Additionally, the group supports the 432nd Wing/432nd Air Expeditionary Wing in its mission to train pilots, sensor operators and other remotely piloted aircraft crewmembers, and conduct combat surveillance and attack operations worldwide.

"Our broad range of Airmen--from explosive ordnance disposal technicians, fighter pilots, maintainers, remotely piloted aircraft crews to space aggressors--are covering the full spectrum of Air Force capabilities and providing integrated support alongside their Regular Air Force counterparts on a daily basis," said Breeden.
