On behalf of all the Airmen of the 174th Attack Wing, welcome to our website.
Hancock Field has served as an important military asset since shortly after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. In the ensuing 70+ years, members of the 174th Attack Wing and its associated units have proudly served in the Berlin Crisis, Pueblo Crisis, Operations DESERT SHIELD, DESERT STORM, PROVIDE COMFORT II, NORTHERN WATCH, ALLIED FORCE, IRAQI FREEDOM, ENDURING FREEDOM, ODYSSEY DAWN, FREEDOM'S SENTINEL, RESOLUTE SUPPORT, and supported countless other missions.
The daily mission across Hancock Field is to provide qualified Airmen and weapon systems for joint global air, space and cyberspace operations, in support of homeland defense, and to aid civil authorities at the direction of the Governor of New York State. We are home to a number of diverse and unique missions, including MQ-9 combat operations mission, MQ-9 aircrew Formal Training Unit, MQ-9 Formal Training Detachment, and the 152nd Air Operations Group's Air Operations Center.
Over $142 million has been invested in Hancock Field Air National Guard Base since 2000 to keep it at the forefront, contributing to national defense and homeland security. We are proud of our facilities and especially of our highly trained members, who are dedicated to serving our country and our communities.
