Three members of the 78th Attack Squadron are the 2014 Air Force Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Awards Program winners at the Air Reserve Component level. 

Capt. Bobby (last names deleted) is the Outstanding Air Reserve Component  ISR Company Grade Officer; Master Sgt. Paul, the Outstanding ARC ISR Senior NCO, and Tech James, the Outstanding ARC Enlisted Instructor.

Col. Mark Montee, Director of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance, Headquarters Air Force Reserve Command, Robins Air Force Base, Georgia, visited Creech Air Force Base June 19 to recognize the intelligence professionals in the 78th ATKS.  "I'm thrilled AFRC has recognized our intelligence professionals for their outstanding work," said Lt Col David, 78th ATKS commander.  "Our Intel team contributes daily to the success of the Creech RPA [remotely piloted vehicle] combat mission."

"It seems like every year I visit Nellis and Creech to recognize AFRC AFIRSAP winners," Montee said as he welcomed a crowd from the 726th Operations Group.  This is Montee's last visit to Nellis and Creech AFB as he will retire next spring, "But with the caliber of people in these organizations and the continued importance of this mission, I am sure my successor will be out here to recognize more of your folks next year," said Montee.  

The 78th ATKS provides highly experienced and skilled, combat-ready citizen Airmen to conduct integrated and expeditionary combat operations in the MQ-1 Predator, MQ-9 Reaper, and RQ-170 Sentinel aircraft.
