167th Airlift Wing, Martinsburg, West Virginia
The 167th Airlift Wing of the West Virginia Air National Guard is an airlift unit that flies the C-17 Globemaster III aircraft. For more than 55 years the wing has served the state and nation by providing outstanding capability across a variety of missions, beginning in its earliest days when it flew the F-51 Mustang and F-86 Sabre fighters. The unit has deployed to the four corners of the Earth in support of the Global War on Terrorism and continues to support this effort. The 167th's focus today, and in the future, is summed up in the unit's motto:
"Mountaineer Pride Worldwide."
Wing personnel are encouraged to call 304-616-5127, to offer suggestions on how to improve the wing. The number goes directly to a recorded greeting by Col. Shaun Perkowski, the 167th Airlift Wing commander, encouraging Airmen to leave a message containing their feedback. Airmen can also file complaints through the action line, but are encouraged to work all complaints through their change of command or the Inspector General's office when available.
