Check Six: HANG Attendance Trophy – 50 years ago

June 21, 2019

In the 1960s through the early 1970s, the Hawaii Air National Guard had a HIANG Attendance Trophy. The trophy was presented to the unit with the best unit training assembly (UTA) attendance.

In 1969, the the-201st Mobile Communications Squadron won the trophy. The 201 MCS was Federally recognized a few years earlier and were then located in Battery Selfridge. The squadron moved to the new facility later that year. The facility currently houses the 154th Operations Group.

In the photograph on the left, then-Lt Col Arthur Ishimoto is presenting the trophy to Lt Col Paul Mori, the squadron commander. Ishimoto was the communications-electronics officer at HQ Hawaii Air National Guard. He later became the Adjutant General. Mori remained the commander until the squadron became the 201st Combat Communications Group. He served in several command and staff positions until his retirement.

The photograph on the right show the trophy.

Does anyone know more about the trophy? The units who won the trophy over the years? Who has the trophy now?
