The Washington Air National Guard's 194th Wing is headquartered at Camp Murray and consists of more than 1,000 citizen-airmen. Their mission sets involve both kinetic and non-kinetic operations and include sensitive missions that reside in the cyber domain. The 194th's cutting edge capabilities are well-suited to the threats our nation faces in the 21st Century.
Officially formed in 2006, the 194th Wing was the Air National Guard's first-ever non-flying operational wing and it is currently the Guard's newest wing. The Wing provides a diverse array of transformational capabilities that are critical to fighting and winning in overseas contingency operations around the world, and has a multitude of elite and distinctive career options. As Washington Air National Guardsmen, we are citizen-Airmen who have the unique opportunity to both defend our freedom overseas and to provide safety and security in any emergency that may arise back home.
