U.S. Air Force Brig. Gen. David W. Snoddy, U.S. Air Force Warfare Center vice commander, visited the U.S. Air Force Expeditionary Center and the 621st Contingency Response Wing, Feb. 12, 2020, at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, New Jersey. Snoddy toured the USAF Expeditionary Center in order to better understand the mission set and how the USAF Warfare Center mission generation focus bridges with the USAF Expeditionary Center’s expeditionary employment of forces.


The two Air Force Centers are known for their ability to deliver top caliber training to Airmen before deploying to support Combatant Commanders, but do so in different ways. 


The USAF Warfare Center, located at Nellis Air Force Base, Nev., exists to ensure deployed forces are well trained and well equipped to conduct integrated combat operations. From testing and tactics development programs, to training schools and venues, the USAF Warfare Center provides Airmen with proven and tested technology, the most current tactics, superb academic training and a unique opportunity to practice integrated force employment.


The USAF Expeditionary Center, located at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, New Jersey, is the Air Force's Center of excellence for Rapid Global Mobility and expeditionary Agile Combat Support training and education, while also providing direct oversight for the Global Air Mobility Support System and installation support, contingency response, and building partnership capacity mission sets within the global mobility enterprise.
