A Wednesday morning announcement affirmed that active duty airmen stationed at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base are living up to their unit's motto -- that the 4th Fighter Wing is, indeed, "first."

Air Combat Command Commander Gen. Gilmary M. Hostage III told wing officials late this morning that the 4th has been awarded the 2012 Air Force Outstanding Unit Award.
