352nd Special Operations Group
Stationed at RAF Mildenhall, The 352d Special Operations Group (352 SOG) is an operational unit of the United States Air Force Special Operations Command .
The unit can trace its heritage back to 1944 when it initially formed as an air commando unit. Today, throughout the European theatre, the 352 SOG serves as the focal point for all U.S. Air Force special operations activities in support of U.S. European Command (USEUCOM), as well as Africa in support of U.S. Africa Command (USAFRICOM) and Southwest Asia and the Middle East in support of U.S. Central Command (USCENTCOM).
The 352 SOG is prepared to conduct a variety of high priority, low-visibility, adverse weather missions supporting U.S. and allied special operations forces during combat operations.
It trains and performs special operations primarily in the USEUCOM and USAFRICOM area of operations, including establishing air assault landing zones, controlling close air support by strike aircraft and gunships, and providing trauma care for wounded and injured personnel.
