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 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 for others to emulate.
