Patrick AFB  Mission: One Team Delivering Assured Space, Launch, Range, and Combat Capabilities for the Nation.

We will never forget. Every family that lost a loved one, every first responder that laid down their life, every person affected by this day 17 years ago — you are remembered. We salute you. #NeverForget #45thSpaceWing

What a difference 70 years can make! In September of 1948, the property that would later be known as Patrick Air Force Base would be transferred from the U.S. Navy to the U.S. Air Force. #ThenAndNow #TransformationTuesday #45thSpaceWing

45th Space Wing Airmen, friends and family, celebrated the end of summer with a beach bash today! Games, food and fun were only a few of the things to be enjoyed at the Beach House. Have a great Labor Day weekend, everyone! ☀️🦈 #LaborDay #BeachBash #45thSpaceWing #Fun

Yesterday, I had the distinct honor and pleasure to take command of the 45th Space Wing. I have watched closely as this wing, a place I called home from 2012-2014, has broken countless barriers and achieved greater heights than ever imagined; accomplishing those things by working hand-in-hand with our mission partners, with the support of the local community and with amazing Airmen.
I am humbled and proud to serve you and I look forward to working with each of you to continue the 45th Space Wing's successful legacy. - Shark 1, Brig Gen Doug Schiess

Exercise #PatriotSands wrapped up this weekend, and we are glad we were able to help support the latest field training for our friends over at @westoverarb

Congratulations to our partners at @nasa and @ulalaunch for another successful launch on the Eastern Range!
