The 40th Helicopter Squadron falls under the 582nd Helicopter Group, 20th Air Force, F.E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyoming, providing combat-ready aircrew and flexible helicopter airpower to the 341st Missile Wing, in support of the shared strategic nuclear mission. The squadron performs priority security response for the missile field, aerial convoy surveillance, and priority airlift support for missile maintenance and operations.
