In Jackson, we focus on Air Mobility, a mission that delivers global air transportation of equipment and supplies during times of war and for peace-time training exercises. This includes providing safe, comfortable and reliable transportation of military personnel or dignitaries anywhere in the world.
The 172nd Airlift Wing embodies a historically significant volunteer spirit. Today, the 172nd AW operates the C-17 Globemaster III, and participates in an all-volunteer mobilization and activation, flying weekly missions into harm's way to return wounded patients of the Total Force safely back to the U.S. No matter how technical our operation or how wide our global reach, our people remain our most treasured resource. We understand the high price of freedom and volunteer to protect it.
