The 23d Fighter Wing was activated on 10 August 1948 at Northwest Guam AFB, Guam as part of the "Wing" or "Wing-Base" plan, which prescribed a standard organizational setup for all USAF bases worldwide..In 1957, the group converted from the F-89D to the nuclear capable F-89H armed with AIR-2 Genie rockets...On 23 September 1980, the 74 TFS received the 23 TFW's first operational Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II aircraft...

In response to the buildup of forces following the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait in August 1990, the 74th and 76th Tactical Fighter Squadrons deployed with numerous support personnel to King Fahd International Airport, Saudi Arabia, attached to the 354th Tactical Fighter Wing (Provisional) as part of Operation Desert Shield...The 23 TFW flew more than 2,700 combat sorties over Iraq and Kuwait while maintaining a mission-capable rate of 95 percent.. They also airdropped relief supplies into Bosnia and Herzegovina and flew relief missions into Sarajevo for more than 28 months..Both the 23 WG and 23 FG are charged with carrying on the historic Flying Tiger's heritage...'t you tell me to relax, goddammit! You're an E4, I'm a goddamm full bird Colonel! You don't talk to me like that.., You understand me, soldier..That's OK, sir, I understand the kind of pressure you're under.. My fiancée is here on base, so we arranged for a transfer together..
