Mountain Home Air Force Base

Mountain Home AFB Our Military

 

Nestled between the Danskin and Owyhee mountains, Mountain Home Air Force Base is situated about 50 miles southeast of Boise and 90 miles northwest of Twin Falls, Idaho. The base is in Elmore County, 12 miles southwest of the city of Mountain Home, Idaho, at nearly 3,000 feet above sea level.

Mountain Home AFB is home of the 366th Fighter Wing. Its four subordinate groups fly, maintain or support more than 50 F-15E Strike Eagle aircraft at the 389th and 391st fighter squadrons. An additional 12 F-15SG Strike Eagles belong to the Republic of Singapore’s 428th Fighter Squadron operating at Mountain Home AFB as a mission partner under the Peace Carvin V program.

Mountain Home AFB and the 366th Fighter Winger have a rich history, stretching back more than 70 years to the United States’ entry into World War II. The “Gunfighter” nickname was earned in 1967, while the 366th Tactical Fighter Wing was stationed at Da Nang Air Base, Vietnam. Pilots were missing opportunities to shoot down enemy MiGs because their missiles were ineffective at short ranges and the F-4C lacked a gun. However, innovative wing aircrew and maintainers worked together to mount external 20 mm Gatling gun pods on the wings of the F-4Cs and developed new tactics, enabling pilots to score four MiG kills within the first month of operation.

Today, Mountain Home AFB’s Gunfighters stand ready to meet the expeditionary needs of Air Combat Command, achieving the 366th Fighter Wing’s vision to be the nation’s premiere combat wing; a cohesive team enhancing our nation’s combat capability while building upon a legacy of innovative Gunfight excellence.

Population

According to the fiscal 2015 economic impact statement, the base has approximately 3,364 active-duty and reserve military members, 910 civilian members and 4,303 family members.

Economic Impact

Mountain Home Air Force Base’s total impact on the local economy in fiscal 2015 totaled approximately $342 million. It created 2,127 jobs in fiscal 2015.

History

Mountain Home AFB Our Military History

 

Around the same time the 366th Fighter Group was started in June 1943 in Virginia, construction plans began in Idaho for Mountain Home AFB. The land cost only $1 or $2 an acre and construction began in November 1942. Mountain Home Army Air Field officially opened Aug. 7, 1943. When World War II ended, the mission at Mountain Home reverted to B-24 training. In October 1945, the base was placed on inactive status. The base remained inactive until December 1948 when it hosted the 5th Reconnaissance Group and then the 5th Strategic Reconnaissance Wing, flying the RB-17. When the Air Force became an independent service, the base was renamed Mountain Home Air Force Base. In 1953, the base was transferred to Strategic Air Command, which assigned its 9th Bombardment Wing to Mountain Home AFB. In 1959, construction of three Titan missile sites began in the local area. The missile sites remained active for only three years.

Control of Mountain Home AFB passed from Strategic Air Command to Tactical Air Command in January 1966. With this change, the 67th Tactical Reconnaissance Wing replaced the 9th Strategic Aerospace Wing. The 347th Tactical Fighter Wing, equipped with F-111Fs, replaced the 67th as host unit of the base in May 1971. The 347th had a short stay at Mountain Home, conducting F-111F training until October 1972. Upon arrival, the 366th absorbed all people and equipment from the 347th. The 366th received F-111A aircraft from Nellis AFB, Nevada. The Air Force announced plans to place EF-111A aircraft at Mountain Home AFB in March 1980, with the 366th Tactical Fighter Wing training F-111A and EF-111A aircrews while maintaining combat readiness in both aircraft.

In early 1991, the Air Force announced that the 366th would become the Air Force’s premier air intervention composite wing. The air intervention composite wing’s rapid transition from concept to reality began in October 1991, when it was designated the 366th Wing. The wing’s new fighter squadrons were activated as part of the composite wing in March 1992. The 389th began flying the dual-role F-16C Fighting Falcon, while the 391st was equipped with the deadly nighttime fighter-bomber, F-15E Strike Eagle. These two squadrons provide Gunfighters round-the-clock precision capability. The wing received its air superiority aircraft, F-15Cs, in September 1992. With its internal 20 mm cannon and air-to-air missiles, the F-15C protects the wing’s high-value assets from enemy air threats. The wing also gained the 22nd Air Refueling Squadron, equipped with the KC-135R. These tankers give the air intervention composite wing its ability to deploy globally at a moment’s notice.

In April 1994, the wing gained the 34th Bomb Squadron with its B-1B aircraft, and began the beddown of the aircraft from Ellsworth AFB, South Dakota, to Mountain Home AFB in August 1996. The 34th Bomb Squadron (B-1B bombers) and the 22nd Air Refueling Squadron (KC-135 tankers) were deactivated in the summer of 2002, leaving the wing with the F-15E, F-15C and the F-16CJ type aircraft. After the 366th Wing’s success at Operation Provide Comfort, the wing’s mission changed from an air intervention composite wing to an air expeditionary wing Jan. 1, 1997. On Sept. 27, 2002, the wing took on the designation of the 366th Fighter Wing and became a member of an air expeditionary force. For the past 50 years both Mountain Home AFB and the 366th Fighter Wing have played vital roles in the nation’s defense. Now, together as partners, they forge ahead as the leading edge of airpower into the next century.

366TH FIGHTER WING

The mission of the 366th Fighter Wing is to prepare mission-ready Gunfighters to fight and win today’s war and the next. The wing is composed of four groups: 366th Operations Group, 366th Maintenance Group, 366th Mission Support Group and 366th Medical Group.

The wing is home to three fighter squadrons: 389th Fighter Squadron, 391st Fighter Squadron and the Republic of Singapore’s 428th Fighter Squadron. The wing has the firepower of more than 50 F-15E Strike Eagle aircraft and 12 Republic of Singapore Air Force F-15SG aircraft. The 726th Air Control Squadron detachment assigned at the base gives an air picture to the aircraft as they train. An active Air National Guard unit, 266th Range Squadron, controls and maintains emitter sites within the 7,412-square-mile operational training range in southern Idaho.

Additionally, the 390th Electronic Combat Squadron, at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, Washington, is assigned to the 366th Operations Group.

The 366th Medical Group provides emergency, urgent and impatient care. Clinics are provided for dental, family health, flight medicine, pediatrics, immunizations, optometry and women’s health. Care is provided in the following specialty areas: family practice, internal medicine, general surgery, psychiatry, radiology, pharmacy, clinical laboratory, dietetics and physical therapy. Specialty services beyond the capability of the medical group are referred to other military facilities through the aeromedical evacuation system or through local civilian sources.

Dental care services are available to active-duty military only. Family members of active-duty personnel are encouraged to use the TRICARE Dental Program. Information about the TRICARE Dental Program can be obtained by calling 844-653-4061 or visiting www.tricare.mil/CoveredServices/Dental/TDP.

TRICARE

TRICARE is the health care program for active duty and retirees of the uniformed services, their families and survivors. TRICARE’s primary objectives are to optimize the delivery of health care services in the military’s direct care system for all military health system beneficiaries and attain the highest level of patient satisfaction through the delivery of a world-class health care benefit.

TRICARE coverage is completely portable so it moves with you when you relocate. The TRICARE Prime options include TRICARE Prime and TRICARE Prime Remote in the United States, and TRICARE Prime Overseas and TRICARE Global Remote Overseas in regions outside of the United States.

Follow these simple steps to ensure you have no break in coverage when you move:

  • Do not cancel your TRICARE Prime enrollment option before you move.
  • Update your personal information in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System immediately when you arrive at your new location.
  • Select a new primary care manager when moving within the same region, or submit a new Prime enrollment form within 30 days if you’re moving to a new region.

Where you are moving will determine which Prime option you will enroll in. If you move to a new Prime service area, transfer your enrollment by submitting a TRICARE Prime enrollment and primary care manager change form to your regional contractor. Be sure to include all family members who wish to use Prime on the form.

TRICARE Standard and Extra are available to family members only. Active-duty service members are required to enroll in one of the Prime options. TRICARE Standard and Extra are available throughout the United States, and enrollment is not required. Any active-duty family member who is registered in DEERS may use these programs by seeing any network or non-network provider that is authorized by TRICARE.

If you’re already using TRICARE Standard and Extra, moving is easy. When you arrive at your new location, update your personal information in DEERS immediately. Then find TRICARE-authorized providers in your new area.

Here are a few things to remember about using TRICARE Standard and Extra in a new region:

  • In the U.S., visit your new regional contractor’s website for a list of providers. Remember, if you see network providers, you’ll be using the Extra option and pay lower copayments.
  • If you move to a new region, you’ll have a new claims address for submitting your TRICARE claims.
  • Learn your new region’s prior authorization requirements as these requirements may differ by region.
