Abstract:

In the early 1990s, sharply reduced military budgets and post-Cold War strategic requirements drove the Air Force to restructure its organization drastically. Recognizing that the active Air Force planned for 1995 would be less than half the size of the Air Force existing in 1990, General Merrill A. McPeak, the Air Force Chief of Staff, aggressively sought to preserve USAF heritage and to increase the historical awareness of USAF personnel. Among other initiatives, he directed the Air Force Historical Research Agency to compile a two-volume series publicizing the lineage and heraldry of the wings and flying squadrons that would remain in the active Air Force. "Active Air Force Wings," the first volume in the heritage series, includes all regular Air Force wings active as of 1 October 1995. Within this volume are the lineages, honors, and heraldry of combat wings created after 1947 and those that originated as combat groups or four-digit organizations. Every wing appears with the designation it possessed on 1 Oct 1995. For each wing, the book provides lineage, assignments, tactical components, stations, commanders, aircraft and missiles, operations, service and campaign streamers, armed forces expeditionary operations unit streamers, decorations, emblem, and bestowed honors where applicable. "USAF Active Flying, Space, and Missile Squadrons," the second volume in the heritage series, includes those squadrons that were active on 1 Oct 1995. Within this volume are the squadrons' lineages, honors, and heraldry. Every squadron appears with the designation that it possessed on 1 Oct 1995. For each squadron, the book provides lineage, assignments, stations, aircraft and missiles, a brief statement of operations, service and campaign streamers, armed forces expeditionary streamers, decorations, and emblem.
