10th AS Pathfinders:
The squadron of choice for combat airlift.


Our mission is to train and equip 
C-17 aircrews 
for global air-land and airdrop operations.

The 10th Airlift Squadron has seen military action off and on since its beginning in January 1938 as the 10th Transport Squadron. For over 65 years the unit was involved in clandestine airdrops over Europe and airborne invasions of North Africa and Sicily.

From 1984 to 1991, the unit was designated the 10th Military Airlift Squadron. The unit's primary mission was to deliver mission-capable parts to fighter bases in western Europe. It was the only operational Air Force flying the C-23 Sherpa.

The 10th was redesignated April 1, 2003, in preparation for its activation and became a part of Team McChord Oct. 10, 2003.
