10/10/2012 - WHITEMAN AIR FORCE BASE, Mo.  -- The 924th Fighter Group located at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Ariz., was reassigned to 944th Fighter Wing, Luke AFB, Oct. 1.

The 442nd Fighter Wing here has been responsible for the 924th Fighter Group, an Air Force Reserve A-10 unit with and education and training mission, since January2011.

"It's been an honor for us to help with the standup of the 924th Fighter Group, said Brig. Gen. Eric S. Overturf, 442nd Fighter Wing commander. They've grown from less than 20 reservists to more than 125 assigned personnel over the last couple of years, and they are already making significant contributions to the A-10 training mission. "We will be sad to see such great people leave the 442nd Fighter Wing, but the organizational and geographic benefits of this will allow the group to receive better support at the wing level."

The new organization will consolidate all Reserve F-15E, F-16 and A-10 formal training under one wing command and ensure that the 944th Fighter Wing has sufficient personnel to retain its wing status.

The decision was announced in a special order Sept. 24 from Director of Manpower Personnel and Services Kenneth Albrecht, Air Force Reserve Command.
The 944th Fighter Wing also gained the 414th Fighter Group from Seymour Johnson AFB, N.C. in the same order.
