The wing consists of four groups: the 60th Operations Group, 60th Maintenance Group, 60th Mission Support Group and 60th Medical Group, which includes the David Grant USAF Medical Center.

The wing is comprised of four groups and a wing staff element. The 349th Operations Group provides the crews that fly the wing’s KC-10, C-5 and C-17 aircraft. The 349th Maintenance Group is responsible for aircraft maintenance and aerial port operations. The 349th Mission Support Group provides support to the wing’s mission and its airmen. The 349th Medical Group works with the 60th Medical Group at the David Grant USAF Medical Center.

The 349th Air Mobility Wing provides combat-ready airmen and expeditionary support to the war fighter. This makes the wing responsible for training approximately 3,000 reservists who, in turn, work side by side their active-duty counterparts in the 60th Air Mobility Wing.

The wing consists of approximately 1,500 airmen in three groups, 11 squadrons and more than 20 geographically separated operating locations aligned with major Army and Marine Corps combat units. The wing maintains a ready corps of light, lean and agile mobility support forces able to respond as directed by the 18th Air Force at Scott Air Force Base, Illinois, in order to meet wartime and humanitarian requirements.
