2 Air Expeditionary Squadron

2 Air Expeditionary Squadron (AES) is the sustaining partner of every mission that is assigned to 2 Wing. First in the field and last out after the mission, 2 AES works hand in hand with several other military agencies and is usually organized into a construct called an Air Task Force (ATF). The squadron is comprised of an Operations Support Element (OSE) providing airfield coordination, a Mission Support Element (MSE) providing all the necessary logistics, and a Force Protection Element (FPE) providing security.
