The 24th Special Operations Wing (24th SOW) is one of three Air Force active duty special operations wings assigned to Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC). The 24th SOW is based at Hurlburt Field, FL.

The primary mission of the 24th SOW is to provide Special Tactics forces for rapid global employment to enable airpower success.  The 24th SOW is USSOCOM’s tactical air/ground integration force and the Air Force’s special operations ground force to enable global access, precision strike, and personnel recovery operations.

Core capabilities encompass: airfield reconnaissance, assessment, and control; personnel recovery; joint terminal attack control; and environmental reconnaissance.

Special Tactics is comprised of Special Tactics Officers, Combat Controllers, Combat Rescue Officers, Pararescuemen, Special Operations Weather Officers and Airmen, Air Liaison Officers, Tactical Air Control Party operators, and a number of combat support Airmen which compromise 58 Air Force specialties.

These unique skills provide a full-spectrum, air-focused special operations capability to the combatant commander in order to ensure airpower success.  With their unique skill sets, Special Tactics operators are often the first special operations elements deployed into crisis situations.


The 24th SOW has two operational groups, a training squadron, and 16 special operations recruiting liaison operating locations. Altogether, the wing has elements in 29 locations.

The 123rd Special Tactics Squadron (STS) based at Standiford Field, Kentucky, and the 125th STS based at Portland International Airport, Oregon are Air National Guard gained units that augment the 24 SOW in support of national security objectives, combat operations, humanitarian efforts, and training.

Leaders are visionaries with a poorly developed sense of fear and no concept of the odds against them.
The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind him in other men the conviction and the will to carry on.

After I originally left a comment I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are
added- checkbox and from now on every time a comment is added I recieve four emails with the same comment.
Perhaps there is an easy method you can remove me from that service?
Thank you!
