Leading the way in innovation, 366 FW’s redesign of the Wing organization empowers Squadrons to work directly with Wing headquarters for quicker decision- making and more efficient resolution of challenges. Mountain Home was the first Wing in the Air Force to experiment with the ‘Lead Wing’ structure. Now, more than ever, is an exciting time to be a Gunfighter!
The A-Staff headquarters organization is new at the Wing level, but not new to the Air Force, as anyone who has served at a NAF, MAJCOM, or joint headquarters can attest. Our goal is to educate and inform all MHAFB Airmen on how the Wing’s A- Staff supports units and services across the base, both in garrison and deployed.
The Combat Wing headquarters combines functions from the legacy headquarters organization with selected functions formerly at the Squadron level and establishes a few new functions. The Mountain Home AFB Reorganization Business Rules (v3.0) describe these changes in detail. Reach out to the 366 FW Chief of Staff for further information!
“The new model empowers Airmen and increases their autonomy. Airmen are not afraid to make mistakes in Mountain Home’s flattened organizational structure post-reorg.”
~ 366 FW Commander
