Awards on base

The 4th Equipment Maintenance Squadron at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base has won an award for being the best equipment maintenance squadron in the Air Force.

The squadron provides ammunition, bomb racks and ground equipment for the 4th Fighter Wing aircraft and ensures that the F-15E Strike Eagles are ready to fly.
