DAVIS-MONTHAN AIR FORCE BASE, Ariz., -- Since the beginning of 2015, 1,252 personnel and 596 short tons of cargo have been deployed out of D-M. 

"This was the biggest cargo movement ever on this base, and the biggest personnel movement since WWII," said Staff Sgt. Sammie Ervan, 355th Logistics Readiness Squadron quality assurance logistics plans.

D-M has deployed Airmen from every active duty unit on base in support of four separate operations: Operation Atlantic Resolve, Operation Freedom Sentinel, Operation Inherent Resolve, and Operation Resolute Support.

In support of Operation Atlantic Resolve, Airmen as well as 12 A-10C Thunderbolt IIs from the 354th Fighter Squadron were deployed to Europe as a Theater Security Package.

"Our mission was to reassure our NATO allies that the United States is committed to peace and stability in Eastern Europe," said Lt. Col. Ryan Hayde, 354th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron commander. "We accomplished this mission by training and integrating with our allies throughout Europe."

The deployed Airmen are all expected to return to D-M by the end of August.
