Iowa ANG’s 185th Air Refueling Wing Begins Guam Mission

The Unit Will Be Assigned To The 506th Expeditionary Air Refueling Squadron

Members of the Iowa Air National Guard’s 185th Air Refueling Wing departed for an interesting TDY (temporary duty) assignment at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam. 

About 100 unit members headed to Guam with their KC-135 air refueling aircraft late last month for a regular three-month rotation to the U.S. island territory in the Western Pacific. 

The Iowa Airmen will provide in-flight refueling for U.S. military aircraft while at Andersen AFB. Air Refueling missions include refueling U.S. Air Force bomber aircraft that are part of the continuous bomber task force and theater security packages in the Pacific region.

While at Andersen Air Force Base, the unit will be assigned to the 506th Expeditionary Air Refueling Squadron, part of Anderson’s 36th Operations Group. The 506th Expeditionary Air Refueling Group is a permanent part of the U.S. Air Force’s 36th Operations Group, supported by Air National Guard air refueling units like Iowa’s 185th ARW.
Air National Guard KC-135 Stratotankers provide refueling support for active-duty and Air Force Reserve flying units stationed at Andersen AFB.
