The mission at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson is to support and defend U.S. interests in the Pacific and around the world by providing units capable of worldwide air power projection and to meet Pacific Command's theater staging and throughput requirements.
JBER also provides early entry battle command capability and acts as the Joint Force Land Component Commander for homeland defense and civil support in Alaska. It is prepared to deploy rapidly in the Pacific theater and elsewhere in support of contingency operations, Pacific Command objectives and U.S. national interests.
Today, JBER continues to grow in importance to US National Security due to our strategic location and complementary mix of military capabilities to include F-22 Raptors and E-3 Sentry AW ACS, Pacific Command's only airborne brigade combat team, the C-17 Globemaster getting them to the fight, and HC-130 and HH-60 aircraft conducting search and rescue missions throughout the state and elsewhere during contingencies.JBER's host unit is the 673d Air Base Wing; but we are also home to headquarters, Alaskan Command and 11th Air Force headquarters, US Army Alaska Headquarters, the Alaska National Guard, the 3rd Wing, the 176th Wing (ANG), the 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), 25th Infantry Division, the 477th Fighter Group, and more than 60 other mission partners.
