Airmen at Malmstrom Air Force Base are celebrating after being awarded the coveted Omaha Trophy.

The 341st Missile Wing won the trophy for being the best missile wing in the United States Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM) for 2018.

The Omaha Trophy dates back to 1971. At the time, a single trophy was presented as a token of appreciation to the command’s best wing.

Now, the tradition has evolved into five awards and recognizes USSTRATCOM’s premier intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) wing, ballistic missile submarine, strategic bomber wing, global operations (space/cyberspace) unit, and strategic aircraft wing.

The 341st Missile Wing was also presented with the Omaha Trophy for their outstanding performance in 2017.
