Thirty-seven reservists from the 307th Red Horse Squadron (RHS) are returning home to San Antonio International Airport via commercial air on Sat., Jan. 14, 2006.
The Reservists, all members of the 307th Red Horse Squadron attached to the 433rd Airlift Wing, were deploying first to Fort McCoy, Wis., for combat skills training before heading overseas. They have been deployed since June 2005 in support of Operations Iraqi and Enduring Freedom.
The squadron’s mission is to provide the Air Force with a highly mobile civil engineering response force to support worldwide contingency and special operations. The squadron’s wartime tasks include major-force bed-down, heavy damage repair, bare-base development, and heavy engineering operations.
The 307th is one of only two Air Force Reserve RED HORSE Squadrons and is one of several units administratively attached to the 433rd Airlift Wing, located at Lackland AFB, Texas. The 433rd Airlift Wing, also known as the “Alamo Wing,” is unit-equipped with C-5A Galaxy aircraft, the largest aircraft in the U.S. Air Force inventory.
