Roland R Wright Air National Guard

151st Air Refueling Wing
​765 2200 W, Salt Lake City, UT 84116

Roland R. Wright Air National Guard Base is an Air Mobility Command base and is the home of the Utah Air National Guard.  It is named after a brigadier general of the United States Air Force who was a pilot during World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.

The 151st Air Refueling Wing is stationed at the base.  It provides civil defense, disaster relief and domestic response to state and national emergencies as directed by the governor of Utah.

The 151st mission is to extend global reach through air refueling, aeromedical evacuation and airlift to U.S. and allied military forces.  In addition, the unit provides critical Intelligence systems, air traffic control, cyber infrastructure and information operations for the warfighter.
Under the “Total Force” concept, Utah Air National Guard units are considered to be Air Reserve Components (ARC) of the United States Air Force (USAF). Utah ANG units are trained and equipped by the Air Force and are operationally gained by a Major Command of the USAF if federalized. 

As state militia units, the units in the Utah Air National Guard are not in the normal United States Air Force chain of command. They are under the jurisdiction of the Governor of Utah unless they are federalized by order of the President of the United States.
