51st Fighter Wing Mission

Purpose: To guard the freedom of 51 million people by deterring aggression, defending the Republic of Korea and defeating any attack against the Alliance.

Method: Defend the base, execute contingency operations and sustain the force.

End State: The enemy takes pause and the armistice is upheld.

51st Fighter Wing Priorities

"Mission first" requires development and focus on:

  1. Be ready to fight tonight! This takes a personal commitment to ensure you and those around you are trained and ready in both armistice and contingency tasks.
  2. Maximize the combat capability of the ROK's airpower team: We have to know how to operate with our ROK counterparts through realistic training and exercises.
  3. Strengthen the ROK-US Alliance: Take advantage of this tour to understand the history, culture and language of Korea.

"People always" means care for our Airmen and families with a focus on:

  1. Leadership: Lead at all levels; formal as well as informal.
  2. Fitness: Set the standard for others to emulate. Leave Osan AB more physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually fit than when you arrived.
  3. Community: Leave Team Osan better than you found it. Help build a community/Alliance that others marvel at.
