Citizen Airmen sacrifice family time to answer the nation’s call even during key times such as holidays, birthdays, and anniversaries. 

"I truly appreciate each Citizen Airman for what they do year-to-year to maintain readiness so they may be prepared at any time," stated Col. Jeffrey Smith, 932nd Airlift Wing commander. "It is never easy being separated from family and friends, whether doing it abroad, while deployed in place, or over the holidays, to accomplish the 932nd mission. As Easter was celebrated with family and friends, it is a great reminder of the impact of sacrifice."

Located at Scott Air Force Base, Illinois, with a total force of more than 1,100 personnel, the Air Force Reserve's 932nd Airlift Wing trains, equips, and employs C-40C aircraft airlift to fly senior civilian and military leaders worldwide and is the only Air Force Reserve with that flies the C-40. The wing comprises the 932nd Maintenance Group, 932nd Medical Group, 932nd Mission Support Group, 932nd Operations Group, Wing Staff Agency, 73rd Airlift Squadron, and other subordinate squadrons.
