The Air Force Reserve Command announces the 452nd Security Forces Squadron as the 2019 Security Forces Base Operations Support Unit of the Year on February 7, 2020.

The award acknowledges the exceptional accomplishments and performance of the squadron in providing safety and security to March Air Reserve Base and the local community over the past year.

“We’ve had a busy year providing security for everything from an F-16 crash to deploying 90 defenders in support of operations in the Middle East,” said Senior Master Sgt. Ruben Lopez, the 452nd SFS operations superintendent. “Our success is due to great communication, teamwork and the support of our leadership from top to bottom to put the mission first.”

It’s the ability to put the mission first by every Airman that builds trust within the squadron to execute security objectives as professionals.

“We rely heavily on our training as Airmen to set us up for success in performing our mission, and I have full confidence in my team’s abilities,” said Maj. Jessica Wruck, 452nd SFS commander. “I’m extremely happy and proud to lead this squadron, and this award shows that it’s not about the effort of one individual, but a testament of accomplishment by a true team.”

The 452nd SFS won the award for the AFRC and now competes at the Air Reserve Component level, which includes Air Force Reserve and Air National Guard forces, for top honors in the Air Force.
