731st Air Mobility Squadron [731st AMS]
The 731st Air Mobility Squadron is a unit of the 715th Air mobility Operations Group, based at Hickam AFB, HI.
Prior to being activated as the 731st AMS, the squadron was designated as the 631th Air Mobility Support Squadron[AMSS]. The change in designation became effective on March 15, 2001, when the 631st AMSS was inactivated and the 731st AMS activated at Osan AB. The change was enacted to better reflect the role of the unit as more operational than support oriented.
The squadron is part of AMC's en route system to provide fixed and deployed maintenance, aerial port and command and control support to deployed AMC forces. The squadron's mission is to provide critical en route services to deployed forces worldwide.
