18th LRS wins American Petroleum Institute award

The 18th Logistics Readiness Squadron (LRS) has won the prestigious American Petroleum Institute (API) award. The API award has been a distinct honor among Air Force fuels management flights for 50 years.

Recognizing individuals and groups as top performers has been a long standing developmental program in military and civilian organizations. Annually, the API trophy is awarded to the top active duty, Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve Fuels Management Flight in recognition of their outstanding contributions, commitment to excellence and dedication to the warfighter mission.

The award takes the name of the API, a preeminent leader in the petroleum industry. The organization provides technical guidance and standards to help companies associated with refining, producing and distributing petroleum to do so efficiently, effectively and safely while ensuring compliance with regulatory and statutory requirements. These are basic tenets fuels activities strive toward, while also focusing on quality of life, process improvement and innovation.
