5th Combat Communications Recognized for Excellence


A Robins unit has been recognized for excellence by the Air Force.

Robins Air Force Base, GA. The 5th Combat Communications Group is the winner

of the service’s 2012 information dominance award for large units. The

annual award is given to teams and units who best conduct information

dominance and cyberspace operations in support of Air Force and Department

of Defense operations.

Col. William Waynick, 5th CCG commander, said the award is a validation of

the hard work and sacrifices his Airmen and their families put forth over

the past year.

Some of the 5th CCG's accomplishments during the award period include having

the last cyber Airmen "boots on the ground" during the end of Operation

Iraqi Freedom, providing cyber support to more than 3,000 International

Security Assistance Force personnel, and establishing an Operation Enduring

Freedom command and control radio net.

56 of the unit’s Airmen also volunteered more than 600 hours to help repair

an aqueduct for an Afghan village.
