Team Mildenhall

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."


The 100th Air Refueling Wing is RAF Mildenhall's current host wing and the only permanent U.S. air refueling wing in the European theater, activated here on February 1, 1992. The wing provides the critical air refueling "bridge" that allows the Expeditionary Air Force to deploy around the globe on a moment's notice. Fact Sheet: 100th Air Refueling Wing


The 352d Special Operations Wing is the air component for special operations within the European command. Under the operational control of the commander for Special Operation Command Europe, the wing plans and executes general war and contingency operations using MC-130J Commando II and CV-22 Osprey aircraft.
