This electronic book on CD-ROM provides a unique and comprehensive collection of military documents on the U.S. Air Force Air Mobility Command, a major command headquartered at Scott Air Force Base, Ill., was created June 1, 1992. AMC provides America's Global Reach. This rapid, flexible and responsive air mobility promotes stability in regions by keeping America's capability and character highly visible. Air Mobility Command's mission is to provide global air mobility ... right effects, right place, right time. The command also plays a crucial role in providing humanitarian support at home and around the world. AMC Airmen--active duty, Air National Guard, Air Force Reserve and civilians - provide airlift and aerial refueling for all of America's armed forces. Many special duty and operational support aircraft and stateside aeromedical evacuation missions are also assigned to AMC. U.S. forces must be able to provide a rapid, tailored response with a capability to intervene against a well-equipped foe, hit hard and terminate quickly. Rapid global mobility lies at the heart of U.S. strategy in this environment--without the capability to project forces, there is no conventional deterrent. As U.S. forces stationed overseas continue to decline, global interests remain, making the unique capabilities only AMC can provide even more in demand. As the air component of the U.S. Transportation Command, AMC serves many customers and, as the single manager for air mobility, AMC's customers have only one number to call for Global Reach. Airlifters provide the capability to deploy our armed forces anywhere in the world and help sustain them in a conflict. Air refuelers are the lifeline of Global Reach, increasing range, payloads and flexibility. Since Air Force tankers can also refuel Navy, Marine and many allied aircraft, they leverage all service capabilities on land, sea and in the air. Refuelers also have an inherent cargo-carrying capability--maximizing AMC's lift options. AMC's mission encompasses nearly 136,000 active-duty and Air Reserve Component military and civilian personnel. AMC's mobility aircraft include the C-5 Galaxy, KC-10 Extender, C-17 Globemaster III, C-130 Hercules and KC-135 Stratotanker. Operational support aircraft include the VC-25 (Air Force One), C-9, C-20, C-21, C-32, C-37, C-40, and UH-1. AMC has one numbered air force, 18th Air Force, which is charged with tasking and executing all air mobility missions. This collection includes documents, images, and eight videos in .wmv format.
