CHEYENNE, WYO. — The 90th Missile Wing at F.E. Warren Air Force Base has won the military’s top award for missile units for the third consecutive year.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports the wing was awarded the Omaha Trophy Tuesday, beating out units at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana, and Minot Air Force Base, North Dakota.

Adm. Cecil D. Haney of U.S. Strategic Command presented the award. It was welcome news in the midst of a of bad year for missile operators.

In January, the Air Force said one launch officer at Warren and two at Malmstrom were among among 11 officers at six bases implicated in an narcotics investigation.

In March, the commander of the 90th Missile Wing fired the commander of the 90th Operations Group, citing a loss of confidence.
