ORGANIZATIONS

  

 

The 187th Fighter Wing consists of four main groups (see right panel for more information). The wing also supports several Geographically Separated Units (GSUs), and Alabama Joint Force Headquarters.  

 

Total Force Association

The active-duty Air Force 377th Fighter Squadron is based at Dannelly Field Air National Guard Base as an Active Association Unit. The regular Air Force personnel work side-by-side with 187FW Guard Airmen in a mutually beneficial relationship to share resources, reduce duplications or effort, and ultimately, increase the Air Force's ability to provide combat airpower.
