I'm curious if this is considered a good achievement or not...and by an Air Guard unit no less.

As an Army guy, I'm just curious since the 119th is a few miles away.

I would say that is impressive.

The William Tell competition mainly looks at fighter tactics.

The Hughes Trophy looks at missile quals; missions flown; operational readiness, and flight safety.

To win both in a year is impressive to me.

When my squadron was presented the Hughes Trophy it was a big deal.
