Mission

Provide base operating support for the Ogden Air Logistics Center, the 388th and 419th Fighter Wings, 84th Combat Sustainment Wing, 309th Maintenance Wing, 526th ICBM Systems Wing, 508th Aircraft Sustainment Wing and 25 associate units.

History

Until the fall of 1942, the group aided ground units with their training by flying reconnaissance, artillery adjustment, strafing, and dive bombing missions. The 75th participated in the 1942 Louisiana Maneuvers. It functioned primarily as a replacement training unit from 1943–1944, and also conducted a Ground Liaison Officer course from January-April 1944. The 75th was deactivated in May 1944.

The 75th was reactivated as a wing in May 1966. It performed RF-4C replacement training from February 1967-August 1970, and tactical reconnaissance from July 1966-July 1971. On deactivation in 1971, the 75th's resources passed to the 67 Training Wing.

The 75th was reactivated in 1994 to provide services and support for the Ogden Air Logistics Center and its tenant organizations at Hill Air Force Base.
