All parts were well maintained.

The battalion provided excellent work and was presented the Order of the Red Banner by the commander of the 15th Air Army.
The battalion built 5 airfields, which were always kept in excellent combat readiness. For the preparation of the Mitava airfield in the spring of 1945, he received gratitude from the commander of the 15th AA. During the first half of 1945, the battalion equipped 11 catering units with up to 2,500 people eating daily.

The airfield maintenance battalion relocated 5 times without incident and its vehicles covered 406,385 km. 11561 tons of cargo were transported. During this period, 81 personnel of the battalion were awarded orders and medals.

The battalion is combat ready. The discipline is good. The staff is selected and united.

Personally, Lieutenant Colonel Vorobyov is disciplined, demanding with his subordinates, he brought up many officers who now occupy leadership positions.
All the merits that the airfield maintenance battalion has with uninterrupted and excellent support for combat aviation are the merits of Lieutenant Colonel Vorobyov.

For his energetic, enterprising, uninterrupted work to ensure combat aviation, he is worthy of a government award with the Order of the Red Banner.
