Air Combat Command Public Affairs

04/03/2006 -- LANGLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Va. (ACCNS) -- Air Combat Command
took administrative control of select Air Force Combat Search and Rescue
assets from Air Force Special Operations Command today as part of a
realignment announced in February.

The transfer ensures the Air Force core competency of Combat Search and
Rescue is directly linked to the Combat Air Forces and the personnel
they support, consolidating the management of limited Air Force
resources and providing a clearer presentation of force in theater.
Under ACC, CSAR assets can be mobilized faster during a national crisis,
integrated into combat training, and tasked to support all AEF

Moving the CSAR mission under ACC will be completely transparent to the
warfighter. They will continue to gain CSAR capability from the owning
major command in the same way they did before.

The transfer will affect most active duty operational HC-130s, HH-60s,
and most combat rescue officers and pararescuemen, as well as the Air
Force Rescue Coordination Center at Langley AFB, Va. Units transferred
from AFSOC to ACC will not relocate.

In addition, Air Force Reserve and Air National Guard units will remain
administratively controlled by Air Force Reserve Command and their
respective states, but will be gained by ACC or PACAF when fully

Active duty units affected by the transfer are the 347th Rescue Wing,
Moody AFB, Ga., and all subordinate units; the 563rd Rescue Group,
Davis-Monthan AFB, Ariz. and all subordinate units, the HH-60G Combined
Test Force at Nellis AFB, Nev. and the Air Force Rescue Coordination
Center, Langley AFB, Va.

AFRC units affected are the 920th Rescue Wing, Patrick AFB, Fla., and
the 943rd Rescue Group, Davis-Monthan, Ariz., and its subordinate
squadron, the 304th Rescue Squadron at Portland IAP, Ore.

Affected ANG units are the 106th RQW, Gabreski, NY, and the 129th RQW,
Moffett, Calif.

CSAR assets and personnel assigned to PACAF and U.S. Air Forces Europe
will not be affected by the transfer.

Further actions associated with the transfer, including a routine site
visit and funding actions, will occur over the next few months. ACC,
with assistance from AFSOC, will complete the programmatic actions
associated with the transfer by October.
