Move of Osan RED HORSE:

The 554th RED HORSE now officially calls Andersen AFB, Guam, home, in a move started in 2005 as part of the drawdown of US forces in Korea. The move of the 554th from Osan AB, South Korea, entailed shifting more than 3,000 tons of equipment and some 150 airmen. The shift to Andersen also comes with a new unit flag and, in a first, aligns a RED HORSE unit under a group and wing, the 36th Contingency Response Group and 36th Wing, respectively. The unit will still cover projects across the Pacific but has undertaken, as one of its first enterprises on Guam, construction of a 200-acre, $178 million expeditionary training campus for Pacific Air Forces at Andersen’s northwest field, according to Brig. Gen. Douglas Owens, 36th Wing commander. (Andersen report by SSgt. Chris Powell)
