822nd BASE DEFESE SQUADRON DEPLOYMENT RETURN

MOODY AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. – Approximately 110 Airmen from the 822nd Base Defense Squadron, a unit within the 93d Air Ground Operations Wing, returned home to Moody this week after a six-month deployment to Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan.

While deployed, the squadron patrolled 172 square miles, securing 36,000 people and $3.5 billion worth of assets. The unit also trained and mentored nine Afghan police districts and conducted more than 1,000 village engagements with village elders.

The 93d AGOW conducts offensive and defensive ground combat operations to protect expeditionary aerospace forces with an airborne capability. At a moment's notice, they provide worldwide deployable, "first-in," fully integrated, multi-disciplined capabilities and provide the joint force commander airborne, air-mobile, air-land, and over-land insertion capability, and remain the joint expert on integration of air power and combat weather support to ground forces. They also provide Joint Force Commanders with expertise on the integration of air power and extend the Theater Air Control System for the Joint Forces Air Component Commander.
