Headquartered at Dobbins ARB, GA, 22nd Air Force - one of three numbered air forces in Air Force Reserve Command - is a combat ready force comprised of over 15,000 Citizen Airmen, civilians and contractors organized in 15 units spread across the eastern part of the United States. Through the U.S. Air Force unique contribution of Global Reach, 22nd Air Force provides the United States military with operational capability, strategic depth and the capacity to surge quickly when needed. 

 

The primary mission of 22nd Air Force is to Provide Combat Forces whenever and where ever they are needed. On any given day, Citizen Airmen from the 22nd Air Force are in the fight, supporting Combatant Commanders around the world by rapidly transporting tailored forces, equipment and supplies from garrison to the point of crisis. Citizen Airmen from 22nd Air Force also lead the way in the most unique special missions for our country to include hurricane reconnaissance, aerial spray missions and aerial firefighting. Furthermore, 22nd Air Force has command supervision of other vital mission sets to include distinguished visitor airlift, undergraduate pilot training, basic military training, warfighting effectiveness and survivability of mobility forces training, flight test operations and a highly mobile civil engineering response force.

 

The vision of 22nd Air Force is simple and straight-forward: Citizen Airmen – Trained and Ready to Answer Our Nation’s Call. Airmen from 22nd Air Force are unique experts in the design, generation, support, and application of Global Reach.  Therefore, we are obligated to deliberately develop our Airmen – military and civilian – to project power, influence and assistance responsively with unrivaled speed and precision to any point on the earth.

 

Three priorities drive the focus and efforts of 22nd Air Force on a daily basis: (1) Provide Mission Ready Airmen and Equipment; (2) Develop and Care for our Airmen and Family Members; and (3) Modernize and Organize for the Future.
