FARGO, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota Air National Guard's 119th Wing has been named one of the best in the nation, again.

The Fargo-based wing on Saturday was being presented with the Air Force Outstanding Unit Award for the 14th time. Military officials say that's ahead of the norm of three-to-five times.

The 119th wing competes with similar units across the nation for the honor. Only four of 31 units earn the honor each year. The 119th first earned it in 1973.
