The Tempe Chamber Military Affairs Committee (MAC) is proud to invite you to an annual event to honor the crew of the "Copper 5" featuring the Plough and Young Awards. This year's event will be a live broadcast from the 161st Refueling Wing.

In cooperation with the Arizona Air National Guard, the Tempe MAC has been holding this annual event to honor one outstanding officer and one outstanding enlisted member on duty with the 161st Air Refueling Wing to commemorate the Copper 5 crew. This award is called the Plough - Young Awards.

This year, 1st Lt. Caleb Mischung and TSgt Patrick Nelson have been selected as the 2020 Goldwater ANG Base Maj Truman Young and TSgt Donald Plough award winners. Both outstanding airmen have been instrumental to the Wings mission success both at home and abroad. 1st Lt.
