Robins Air Force Base – Warner Robins Georgia 31088

If you are PCSing or relocating to Robins Air Force Base, this guide will help you get started on your journey.   Having been a “veteran” of 7 PCS moves, over 20 local moves, base housing, and a couple of DITYs, I fully understand the anticipation and fear that accompanies showing up at your “next duty station”.

May your tour here at Robins AFB be Blessed…Welcome Home to Warner Robins Georgia!

Warner Robins Georgia is home to , the largest industrial complex in the state and one of the three largest Department of Defense repair facilities in the nation.  The base employs over 27,000 civilian workers, contractors, military members, and non-appropriated fund employees.

Robins AFB was originally an Army Air Corps repair facility called Wellston Air Depot at Robins Field.  The base/city of Wellston were eventually renamed after Brigadier General Augustine Warner Robins, widely considered the “father of logistics”.

Co-located on Robins Air Force is the Warner Robins – Air Logistics Center (WR-ALC), the Headquarters Air Force Reserve Command (AFRC), and the Georgia Air National Guard (Air Control Wing).  The WR-ALC is one of only three Air Force ALCs in the U.S.

The WR-ALC is the Airlift Center of Excellence for the Air Force, providing sustainment management of the C-5, C-17, C-130, and C-141 aircraft.  Warner Robins ALC also handles sustainment functions for several combat systems such as the F-15, Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System (JSTARS), Special Operations Systems, U-2, and Vehicles and Support Equipment.

Air Force Reserve - Robins AFB - Courtesy of your Robins AFB Real Estate Specialist | HQ AFRCHQ AFRC is the operational headquarters for all Air Force Reserve units.  AFRC provides combat readiness, logistical support, and training for all Air Force Reserve units and personnel.  AFRC also provides many specialized functions to include aerial spraying, aeromedical evacuation, counter drug missions, forest fire suppression, and weather reconnaissance.  AFRC has nearly 450 aircraft and perform over 30% of the Air Force’s day-to-day missions.

The Georgia ANGs Air Control Wing is the first Total Force wing consisting of Air Force, Army, ANG personnel, civilian, and contractor personnel.  They fly, maintain, and manage uninterrupted command, control, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance via the E-8C JSTARS program.
