Home > Welcome

Welcome to the Pa. National Guard's 111th Attack Wing:
Located on what was Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Willow Grove, Horsham Air Guard Station is home to the 111th Attack Wing--one of three air wings of the Pennsylvania Air National Guard. The 111th ATKW serves as a control center for the MQ-9 remotely-piloted aircraft and provides engineering and electronics capabilities through specialized units. The wing also hosts several tenant organizations at the base including units of the Pennsylvania Army National Guard and the U.S. Army Reserve, among others.

tabAir National Guard Federal Mission 
The Air National Guard's federal mission is to maintain well-trained, well-equipped units available for prompt mobilization during war and provide assistance during national emergencies (such as natural disasters or civil disturbances). During peacetime, the combat-ready units and support units are assigned to most Air Force major commands to carry out missions compatible with training, mobilization readiness, humanitarian and contingency operations such as Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan.
tabAir National Guard State Mission 
When Air National Guard units are not mobilized or under federal control, they report to the governor of their respective state, territory (Puerto Rico, Guam, Virgin Islands) or the commanding general of the District of Columbia National Guard. Each of the 54 National Guard organizations is supervised by the adjutant general of the state or territory. Under state law, the Air National Guard provides protection of life, property and preserves peace, order and public safety. These missions are accomplished through emergency relief support during natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes and forest fires; search and rescue operations; support to civil defense authorities; maintenance of vital public services and counterdrug operations.
