BARKSDALE AIR FORCE BASE, La. (AFNS) -- Air Force Global Strike Command officials here will gain missile wings at F.E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyo.; Malmstrom AFB, Mont.; and Minot AFB, N.D., when it assumes control of 20th Air Force and the intercontinental ballistic missile mission Dec. 1.
The 576th Flight Test Squadron at Vandenberg AFB, Calif., as well as the 625th Strategic Operations Squadron at Offutt AFB, Neb., will also fall under the new command.
In February, Air Force Global Strike Command officials gain 8th Air Force and the nuclear-capable bomber mission. At that time, the command staff will gain bomber wings at Barksdale AFB, Whiteman AFB, Mo.; and Minot AFB. As AFGSC officials assume responsibility of its new missions, those who formerly worked with points of contact in Air Force Space Command and Air Combat Command will be working with their counterparts in Air Force Global Strike Command.
"The entire staff at Air Force Global Strike Command is working tirelessly to make the transition as seamless as possible, especially to personnel executing the mission in the field," said Col. George Farfour, the Air Force Global Strike Command special adviser to the commander for ICBM transfer. "We want to ensure that people are easily able to reach the points of contact they need to accomplish the mission. To that end, AFGSC contact information is readily accessible on our Portal page and Sharepoint site."
For those who have access to the Air Force Portal, https://www.my.af.mil, contact information and phone numbers for the command staff are posted AFGSC page under "Staff Directory." Each directorate also has a Workflow e-mail box on the Air Force Global Address List. People can contact the Barksdale Air Force Base operator via the Defense Switched Network at DSN 781-1110 or commercial at 318-456-1110 and ask for the appropriate AFGSC directorate.
Air Force Global Strike Command stood up in August to provide combat ready forces to conduct nuclear deterrence and global strike operations in support of the president and combatant commanders.
