U.S. Air Force KC-135 Stratotanker aircraft assigned to the 100th Air Refueling Wing at Royal Air Force Mildenhall, and U.S. Air Force KC-10 Extender aircraft assigned to the 305th Air Mobility Wing, Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J., provide increased global mobility for U.S. Armed Forces. The 100th ARW is the only permanent U.S. air refueling wing in the European theater that provides critical air refueling support which allows the Expeditionary Air Force to deploy around the globe at a moment's notice.
