Each component is essential to providing key mission responsibility as the East Coast Air Mobility Wing, providing America’s Eastern gateway for global reach. The 87th Air Base Wing is the host wing at JB-MDL. The 87th ABW provides installation support to more than 41 mission commanders located at the Department of Defense’s first joint base and only joint base that consolidated Air Force, Army and Navy installations. JB-MDL is home to the 21st Expeditionary Mobility Task Force, one of two EMTFs in Air Mobility Command. Its mission is to command two air mobility operations groups, the 621st CRW at JB-MDL and the 721st AMOG, located at Ramstein Air Base, Germany. During wartime, contingencies, war games or exercises the EMTF commander is the senior director of mobility forces within their area of focus. The 21st EMTF is focused on Europe and Southwest Asia as well as experimentation and exercises in Joint Forces Command. Falling directly under 21st EMTF is the 621st Contingency Response Wing, a major tenant unit. The 621st CRW is the East Coast organization responsible for training and deploying AMC mission support forces. The CRW opens or augments airfields anywhere in the world, deploys worldwide as an extension of the Tanker Airlift Control Center, provides command and control, aerial port and aircraft maintenance personnel for AMC’s Tanker Airlift Control Elements and combat camera support to document military operations. As strategic units of AMC, the 305th Air Mobility Wing and 514thAir Mobility Wing provide airlift and air refueling support as assigned by Headquarters, Air Mobility Command and initiated by the Department of Defense. The 108th Air Refueling Wing represents one of the largest refueling wings in the Air National Guard and this unit is dedicated to supporting AMC in both air refueling and strategic airlift roles. Through the use of the C-17 Globemaster III, KC-10A Extender and KC-135 Stratotanker, JB-MDL maintains air mobility assets in a constant state of readiness. Mission responsibilities include the movement of troops, passengers, military equipment, cargo and mail. Aerial refueling capability is another important aspect of mission support. Aircraft and crews, as well as ground support personnel, can deploy throughout more than 50 countries around the globe, including the Commonwealth of Independent States, on an around-the- clock basis. Today, the 87th ABW, 305th AMW, along with the 514thAMW(AFRC) and the 108thAir Refueling Wing (NJANG) call JB-MDL home.last_img read more
