Scott AFB 375th Air Mobility Wing

 

COMMAND AND CONTROL

The Scott Command Post manages readiness and response of the wing, coordinates the use of personnel and resources, and controls wing operations. The Command Post is co-located and consolidated with 932nd Airlift Wing (Reserve) personnel, operating 24/7. It provides direct command and control support for the 932nd’s and 375th’s Distinguished Visitor airlift missions and is the centralized agency through which the 618th AOC (TACC) manages Air Mobility Command missions transiting Scott AFB. The Scott Command Post is a wing staff agency and is the wing commander’s representative responsible for emergency actions, operational reporting and mission monitoring. It is also responsible for reports to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff assessing the wing’s mission readiness.

INSPECTOR GENERAL

The mission of the 375th AMW Inspector General is to sustain a credible Air Force IG system by planning and executing the wing commander’s Inspection Program based on wing commander guidance and priorities. Additionally, the IG validates and verifies the self-assessment program, provides an independent assessment of wing programs, enables a reliable assessment of readiness compliance and state of discipline, and ensures the existence of responsive complaint investigations and Fraud, Waste and Abuse programs characterized by objectivity, integrity and impartiality. The IG ensures the concerns of all complainants and the best interests of the Air Force are addressed through objective fact-finding to enhance the discipline, readiness and warfighting capability of the entire wing. Any service member or civilian member may file an IG complaint. The IG also accepts complaints from dependents or relatives of active-duty members, retirees and their dependents. Complainants, may contact an IG at any level without notifying the chain of command and without retaliation or fear of reprisal. No one can prohibit your access to the IG. However, experience has demonstrated that commanders and supervisors are in the best position to evaluate and resolve complaints. For this reason, complainants are encouraged to discuss their problems with their supervisor or commander before seeking assistance from the IG.

JUDGE ADVOCATE

The 375th AMW Office of the Staff Judge Advocate performs four essential functions in support of mission accomplishment: administration of military justice, operational law, protecting Air Force resources and freedom of action, and mission-related legal assistance.

Military Justice

As stewards of the military justice system, the base legal office assists commanders in maintaining good order and discipline within their units. Military justice attorneys and paralegals accomplish this by providing legal advice to commanders and first sergeants on all disciplinary matters, enabling commanders to make timely, well-reasoned and fair disciplinary decisions. The Military Justice Division is responsible for processing all courts-martial, non-judicial punishment actions under Articles 15, UCMJ and adverse administrative personnel actions.

Operational Law

Scott AFB’s air mobility mission and its unique aeromedical evacuation mission demand that air crews and medical personnel are well-versed in their rights, protections and responsibilities under international law. The attorneys and paralegals of the operational law division not only provide this training but also brief commanders and personnel on the Law of Armed Conflict and any applicable rules of engagement.

Protecting Air Force Resources and Freedom of Action

To ensure that the interests of the Air Force are protected, the legal office provides a full spectrum of civil law advice to commanders and wing staff agency chiefs to better enable them to accomplish the mission. From providing advice on procurement, environmental law and labor law issues, to defending the Air Force against tort claims and other lawsuits, the legal office fights hard to enable commanders to focus on mission accomplishment without the distraction of threat of adverse legal and/or fiscal consequences.

Mission-related Legal Assistance

The legal office provides legal assistance to active duty, retirees, authorized dependents and mobilized Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve members. The scope of legal assistance includes almost any personal, civil or legal matter related to mobilization and deployment or that will have an adverse effect on the member’s ability to perform military duties. The legal office staff also helps ensure military members are compensated for any damage done to their household goods during government-directed moves by facilitating the claims process through the Air Force Claims Service Center.

Legal Assistance

The Office of the Staff Judge Advocate (Building P-3, Suite 210) offers free professional legal advice on a wide range of personal civil legal matters to active duty, retirees, authorized dependents and mobilized Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve members. Assistance to Reserve and Guard not on Title 10 status is limited to mobility-connected matters.

WING CHAPLAIN

The wing chaplain’s office functions as part of the wing commander’s staff. The office is comprised of chaplains, chaplain assistants and service contractors who provide for the free exercise of religion. The chapel team provides worship services, religious education, confidential counseling and work center visitation. Chaplains also participate in numerous ceremonies such as changes of command, retirements, promotions and commanders calls.

Under the guidance of the Archdiocese for the Military Services, the Scott AFB Chapel has a vibrant Roman Catholic program centered on the sacraments to include baptism and marriage. It offers Saturday, Sunday and daily Masses that are complemented by a strong religious education program with focus on confirmation, first communion and rite of Christian initiation of adults for those wishing to explore the Catholic faith.

The Protestant Community of the Scott AFB Chapel hosts three worship services: a traditional service, a Gospel service and a Community service, which offers a blended style of music. Additionally, it offers a Sunday on Wednesday (SoW) Religious Education program for the entire family to learn and grow in faith. SoW is held on Wednesdays where there are classes for couples, women, men, teens and children of all ages.

The chapel team also facilitates the needs of other religious groups through Distinctive Religious Group Leaders (DRGLs)/Non-chaplain Lay Leaders and referrals to local clergy/religious leaders.

PUBLIC AFFAIRS

The mission of the 375th AMW Public Affairs office is to provide trusted counsel to leaders; build, maintain and strengthen Airmen morale and readiness; enhance public trust and support; achieve global influence and deterrence; and provide photo, video and graphics multimedia support to the 375th AMW, its mission partners and official organizations. The 375th AMW PA office achieves these goals through three primary channels: internal information, community relations and media engagement.

Internal information programs are the primary means used by Air Force leaders to communicate with Airmen and their families, plus retirees, civilians and contract employees. Internal programs include the Command Post newspaper; Scott’s public website, www.scott.af.mil; the Scott AFB Facebook page; the base guide, maps, biographies and fact sheets; and the action line.

Community relations programs enable the commander to enhance Airmen morale and readiness and build public trust and support. Community relations programs include base tours, orientation flights, open houses and air shows, civic leader tours, the Speakers Bureau program and more.

The media engagement program is the link between the base and the Air Force to the local community and informs global audiences about air, space and cyberspace capabilities.

PROTOCOL

As the host installation protocol office, the 375th AMW Protocol Office provides distinguished visitors positive and lasting impressions through expert protocol knowledge, skill and exceptional service, further enhancing Air Mobility Command’s “Showcase Wing.” The protocol office can help customers plan and execute many common military ceremonies, including retirements, changes of command, as well as a variety of social events and special functions.

The key to success in organizing and planning for any protocol event is attention to detail. The Protocol staff is dedicated to ensuring each ceremony and event is first-class and will help create a productive, comfortable environment to accomplish everyone’s objectives no matter the forum.

The office staff is a ready reference for all levels of military functions, from wing to headquarters level, and can provide answers to the most common protocol questions. It all boils down to a combination of standard rules, courtesy and rules of etiquette — and common sense.

SAFETY

The 375th AMW Safety Office leads program management and oversight for Occupational, Weapons and Flight Safety disciplines for Scott AFB, its associate partners and multiple geographically separated units. Safety’s primary mission is to lead in mishap prevention through persistent comprehensive safety education, mishap investigation and reporting, and by promoting risk management. The 375th AMW Safety Office manages hazard identification and abatement programs with the goal to eliminate unnecessary risks in the workplace, thereby creating a safe and healthy working environment for all personnel at Scott AFB. These efforts prevent loss of life and valuable mission resources and ensure the highest level of mission readiness for AMC.

HISTORIAN

The 375th Air Mobility Wing History Office supports the wing commander and the wing by serving as the corporate memory of the wing and providing historically relevant information to aid in decision-making. The historian promotes esprit de corps, professional military education and awareness of Air Force heritage through writing special studies and conducting research to answer historical inquiries. The historian objectively records wing history and deploys to record contingency operations history in order to preserve an official record of Air Force mission accomplishment. Histories and source documents are maintained at the Air Force Historical Research Agency at Maxwell AFB, Alabama. Copies of wing histories, along with additional historical documents, are maintained in the wing’s historical repository. Additionally, the historian is the wing’s focal point for organizational lineage, honors, heraldry, unit emblems and organizational flags.

COMPTROLLER

The 375th Comptroller Squadron provides financial services and support for the wing and its 31 tenant units. The squadron has two major flights, Financial Services Office (FSO) and Financial Analysis Flight (FMA), which contribute to Scott’s “Showcase Wing” by performing their own unique fiscal missions. The FSO provides superior customer service and support to wing, associate partner, retiree and transient personnel for pay and allowances, PCS/TDY travel and civilian pay support. It also maintains a Defense Travel System help desk for the entire base. FMA certifies availability of funds for all funding documents and manages the government purchase card program. FMA also formulates and executes the 375th AMW fiscal year budget to best meet the Wing’s overall requirements. FMA serves as the audit focal point for the wing and conducts the annual economic impact analysis and other financial analyses to support the wing. Through innovation, communication and excellence, the 375th CPTS manages several financial systems and processes to better meet the needs of Team Scott.

EQUAL OPPORTUNITY

The 375th AMW Equal Opportunity office is responsible for processing discrimination complaints made by active-duty members, their family members, retirees and current or former federal civilian employees, as well as applicants for civilian employment. Discrimination complaints are those which allege discrimination based on race, color, gender, sex, religion and national origin. Additionally, for federal civilians only, there are protected categories of age, mental/physical disability and retaliation for participation in previous EO-protected activity. The EO office serves as the primary adviser for equal opportunity matters to commanders at all levels, conducts climate assessments and provides education and briefings as requested.

PLANS AND PROGRAMS

The 375th AMW Plans and Programs office provides senior leaders with processes and programs for fulfilling exercise, peacetime, contingency and wartime missions.

The staff manages and monitors all wing plans, including higher headquarters plans, locally developed and/or directed supplements to higher headquarter plans and plans based on local requirements. It provides guidance to base agencies and host services for international treaty inspection teams by ensuring compliance with treaty protocols and ensuring minimum impact from impending Arms Control Treaties through effective management of the Treaty Compliance Program. Additionally, the office manages and executes the installation Operations Security Program. It also manages the Crisis Action Team for the wing commander during exercises and/or contingency/emergency operations.

SEXUAL ASSAULT PREVENTION AND RESPONSE OFFICE

The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response office serves as the single point of accountability for Department of Defense sexual assault policy and provides access and support 24/7 through the SARC Helpline: 256-SARC (7272). The Department of Defense does not tolerate sexual assault and has implemented a comprehensive policy that reinforces a culture of prevention, response and accountability to ensure the safety, dignity and well-being of all members of the armed forces. Scott leaders at all levels — military and civilian — are committed to maintaining a workplace environment that rejects sexual assault and attitudes that promote such behaviors. The Scott SAPR office offers guidance and support for victims of sexual assault, unit commanders, first responders and those who wish to prevent or respond to sexual assault crimes. Newcomers to Scott will receive a SAPR briefing that addresses confidentiality, reporting procedures and other elements of DOD’s sexual assault policy.

AIR FORCE CONTINUOUS PROCESS IMPROVEMENT (CPI)

The 375th AMW’s Manpower office implements the Air Force’s Continuous Process Improvement (CPI) Program for the wing. CPI provides a standard approach to continuously improve all processes that are employed by the Air Force to deliver the required effects while saving resources and eliminating waste. To develop an Air Force-tailored model of continuous process improvement to fit all Airmen, CPI uses an eight-step problem-solving model as well as components of Lean, Six Sigma, theory of constraints and business process re-engineering. The CPI program focuses on developing a mindset and ability to “see and eliminate” non-value-added work through education and practice. The office also develops a culture which promotes the elimination of waste, sharing of best practices and reduction of cycle times across all products and services, as well as involvement of all Airmen in the relentless pursuit of excellence. You can find more information on the wing’s CPI program by calling the Manpower office at 618-256-4611.
