Mission

Provide first-class, worldwide, safe, and reliable airlift for distinguished visitors and their staffs.

History

The 932d conducted airlift and airdrop of troops and supplies from 1963-1967, and worldwide military airlift from 1965-1969. It trained for trapeze recovery of NASA space capsules through 1969. From 1969 to 2005 it had been associated with the active-duty 375th Airlift Wing, operating the military aeromedical airlift system; providing integrated aircrews, inflight medical crews, and aircraft maintenance. In 2005 the 932d continued to provide aeromedical evacuation crews, but no longer operated the C-9A Nightengale Aeromedical Airlift platform, which was retired from military service. The 932d began flying three C-9C aircraft dedicated to DV airlift. In 2007 the 932d took delivery of three C-40 aircraft, also dedicated to DV airlift.
