THULE AIR BASE, Greenland -- The Thule Port Operations Team is the Gold Knight winner.

The team supported the 821st Air Base Group's Operation Pacer Goose annual resupply of Thule Air Base. During this period, the Port Ops Team oversaw and supervised operations at America's northernmost deep water seaport, and the only seaport operated by the Air Force. During the resupply, the team oversaw the unloading of 10.9 million gallons of JP-8 and more than 5,200 tons of cargo, providing a year's worth of sustainment to get the base through the harsh winter.

Team members include Capt. Arthur Bierzonski, Master Sgts. Matthew Whitman, Traci Bauder and Michael Ostrander, and Tech. Sgts. Marcel Artis, Stuart McBride, Sean Banks, Kurt Copeland, Ebony White and Eddy Graham.
