NELLIS AIR FORCE BASE, NV (FOX5) -

Actor Dean Cain, best known for his role as TV's Superman, is slated to honor his uncle in a visit to Nellis Air Force Base on Friday.

Nellis officials said Cain's uncle, Lt. Col. George Thomas, received the Robbie Risner Award in 1981 while enlisted at the U.S. Air Force Weapons School.

Thomas was recognized as the top-performing graduate of Weapons School that year.

On Friday, Cain is slated to visit Weapons School at Nellis and view a picture of his uncle.

Nellis officials noted Thomas was a former F-15C Eagle pilot and was stationed at the 18th Tactical Fighter Wing in Japan when he was named for the award.

Cain is famed for his turn as Clark Kent in the televised dramatic series Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman.
