Welcome to michigan's home town airbase








The 127th Wing and Selfridge Air National Guard Base Public Affairs' mission is to advance Air National Guard priorities and achieve mission objectives through integrated planning, execution and assessment of communication capabilities. Through strategic and responsive release of accurate and useful information and imagery to National Guard, domestic and international audiences, PA puts operational actions into context; facilitates the development of informed perceptions about National Guard operations; helps undermine adversarial propaganda efforts and contributes to the achievement of statewide and national strategic and operational objectives.

Air Force Public Affairs serves four purposes:
Provide trusted counsel to leaders

Build, maintain

We communicate the values of the 127th Wing and Tell Our Story to a global audience, honoring both the state of Michigan, and our federal missions.

127th Wing Public Affairs contributes information to the following:






ang State Mission

When Air National Guard units are not mobilized or under federal control, they report to the governor of their respective state, territory (Puerto Rico, Guam, Virgin Islands) or the commanding general of the District of Columbia National Guard. Each of the 54 National Guard organizations is supervised by the adjutant general of the state or territory. Under state law, the Air National Guard provides protection of life, property and preserves peace, order and public safety. These missions are accomplished through emergency relief support during natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes and forest fires; search and rescue operations; support to civil defense authorities; maintenance of vital public services and counterdrug operations.

ang Federal Mission

The Air National Guard's federal mission is to maintain well-trained, well-equipped units available for prompt mobilization during war and provide assistance during national emergencies (such as natural disasters or civil disturbances). During peacetime, the combat-ready units and support units are assigned to most Air Force major commands to carry out missions compatible with training, mobilization readiness, humanitarian and contingency operations such as Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan.
