715th Air Mobility Operations Group [715th AMOG]
The 715th Air Mobility Operations Group[AMOG], based at Hickam AFB, HI, was previously designated as the 615th Air Mobility Support Group[AMSG]. Effective March 15, 2001, the designation of the group was changed to better reflect its mission as the role of the unit is more operational than support. On that date, the 615th AMSG was inactivated and the 715th was activated at Hickam AFB, HI. Also affected by the redesignation are the 615th AMSG's squadrons.
The AMC groups and squadrons are part of the command's en route system to provide fixed and deployed maintenance, aerial port and command and control support to deployed AMC forces. The support and operations groups have similar missions to provide critical en route services to deployed AMC forces across the globe. The redesignation reflects those similar missions.
