DAVIS-MONTHAN AIR FORCE BASE, Ariz. — The Air Combat Command Inspector General team gave the 355th Fighter Wing an Outstanding rating during a Unit Effectiveness Inspection Capstone, April 25-29.

This is the first time a unit in the Air Force has received an outstanding rating since the new grading scale was put into motion April 15, 2015. The grading scale previously had five tiers and now has three: ineffective, effective and outstanding.

The ACC IG team examined the 355th Fighter Wing on its mission readiness and effectiveness in order to ensure the wing’s capability to accomplish its mission to deploy, employ, support and sustain attack airpower in support of combatant commanders anywhere in the world at a moment’s notice.

“We brought a team out here from ACC IG to validate all the great work the Airmen of the 355th Fighter Wing have been doing,” said U.S. Air Force Col. Gregory Stankewicz, ACC IG team chief. “It’s a real honor to be here out at the 355th and see all the great work the Airmen of this wing are doing each and every day. I’m getting great feedback on the performance of the wing and specifically all the great work the Airmen are doing in every one of the groups throughout the wing.”

Not only were there no critical findings to the inspection but the 355th FW was also the first wing in ACC to receive outstanding in two mission areas under the new grading criteria: Commander Inspection Program and Executing the Mission.

The ACC IG team recognized 23 superior teams and 81 superior performers and presented 20 ACC IG team coins to select Airmen.

“I’d really like to say thank you to all the Airmen here at Davis-Monthan for the great work they’re doing for the country and the great work they’re doing for the other Airmen out there, both home here in CONUS and deployed,” Stankewicz said. “The effort, the level of energy, the sacrifice for the families that they do, I can’t thank them enough for all the hard work that they put in for others.”
