Air Force activates Special Warfare Training Wing at Joint Base San Antonio | Stars and Stripes

The Air Force has established a new headquarters organization aimed at meeting combatant commanders’ growing needs for special operations airmen, Col. James Hughes, the wing’s commander, told Stars and Stripes in a telephone interview Friday.

The Special Warfare Training Wing was activated Wednesday at Joint Base San Antonio, Texas, according to an Air Force statement issued Wednesday. Composed of approximately 135 airmen, the wing has assumed command of the Battlefield Airman Training Group, which was activated in June 2016 and recently re-designated as the Special Warfare Training Group.
