Welcome to the Stratton Air National Guard Base (ANGB), home of the 109th Airlift Wing. Here at Stratton we support five primary Federal missions: Polar Airlift, Aeromedical Evacuation, Aerial Port, Combat Construction and Field Hospital contingencies. These missions encompass the involvement of many career fields such as Security Forces, Services, Personnel, Communications, Supply and many others.
Stratton ANGB is the only base in the Air Force that possesses the ski-equipped LC-130 aircraft. Our Polar airlift mission supporting the National Science Foundation makes these planes invaluable. Our aircrews and aircraft maintenance personnel are uniquely qualified to get the job done with the C-130s and the LC-130s we have assigned.
Stratton ANGB, like all National Guard units, provides assistance to civil authorities during emergencies, natural or man-made disasters or civil disturbances. We have provided valuable personnel and resources in response to the 1998 Ice Storm, to the extensive tornado damage in Rensselaer County in 1998 and to the World Trade Center following the 9/11. Ongoing support is provided to the National Counter Drug Program, the Civil Air Patrol and the Weapons of Mass Destruction-2nd Civil Support Team. We also have an active community relations program and work very hard to be a good neighbor and contributing employer to our community
