Allen C. Thompson Air National Guard Base

The 172d is based at Allen C. Thompson Field in Jackson, Mississippi. The Air Guard facility is named after Charles L. Sullivan, the former Lieutenant Governor of Mississippi and long-time member and pilot in this unit. The 172nd Airlift Wing embodies a historically significant volunteer spirit. Today, the 172nd AW operates the C-17 Globemaster III, and participates in an all-volunteer mobilization and activation, flying weekly missions into harm's way to return wounded patients of the Total Force safely back to the U.S.
