Units

UNITS Page - Team Mildenhall Title graphic
What makes today's RAF Mildenhall different from other U.S. Air Force bases is the diversity of the units assigned here.
With units from four different major commands -- Air Combat Command, Air Force Special Operations Command,
 Air Mobility Command and U.S. Air Forces in Europe -- we have a wide variety of missions occurring simultaneously.
This unique relationship requires constant coordination and teamwork.
Because of this, we refer to ourselves as "Team Mildenhall."
