Road Trip: Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Arizona

Davis-Monthan Air Force Base is a United States Air Force base adjacent to Tucson, Arizona. The installation is primarily an Air Combat Command (ACC) base with the 355th Fighter Wing (355 FW) as the host activity. The base is also home to Headquarters, 12th Air Force (12 AF) and the Air Force Material Command's (AFMC) 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (309 AMARG), previously known as the Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Center (AMARC).

The 355th Fighter Wing is the host unit at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, however, other units also call D-M home. Twelfth Air Force, the 563rd Rescue Group and The Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (AMARG) are all based out of D-M.

After the execution of Operation Enduring Freedom, eight A-10s from the 355th Wing were called to Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan to fly close air support missions supporting multinational ground forces.

In September 2002, the 48th, 55th, and the 79th Rescue Squadrons (RQS) transferred under control of the 355th Wing, equipped with HC-130 aircraft and HH-60 helicopters. At the same time, the 41st and 43 Electronic Combat Squadrons were realigned under the control of the 55th Electronic Combat Group (55 ECG).

While personnel and aircraft remained on Davis-Monthan AFB operational control of the 55 ECG was assumed by the 55th Wing at Offutt AFB, Nebraska. Another major wing realignment occurred on 1 October 2003 with the activation of the 563 Rescue Group on Davis-Monthan AFB. Control of the 48th, 55th, and 79th Rescue Squadrons (RQS) was passed to the new group with the 23rd Wing assuming operational command of the unit.

Not due to the knee - it was slightly downhill - just lost my balance. I'm on a variety of meds, several of which can cause dizziness.

No black eyes. A small knot on my forehead. A tender spot on my knee. Nothing major.

Great AFB!! My dad worked on the A-10 flight test program for Fairchild Republic at Edwards AFB in CA and was sent TDY to Davis-Mothan in 1976 for about a year. I followed my dad into the aviation business and worked on a B-1B modification for Boeing about 3 yrs. ago. I love Tucson and Davis-Mothan. Never served in the military but have been privileged to work on many of our defense Aviation program. God Bless the USA and our wonderful MILITARY!!

Things could be better; healthy physically but mentally challenged at the moment; senses ok but sensibilities stressed/ And I have to come up with a new tagline. Gotta find some thing to Keelhaul.

Gathering my things to head on back down to the Land of Oz. Leaving on the 4th. It's been fun being home; visiting, meeting with friends, parties (whoo hoo) and other stuff. Won't be back on the net until the weekend.
