1st ESPCS returns from deployment
PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. – Family members anxiously await the arrival of the 1st Expeditionary Space Control Squadron as it returned from southwest Asia Dec. 19, 2014. The squadron is a 21st Space Wing expeditionary unit that has been deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom since 2009 with the mission of providing space situational awareness and defensive space control operations in support of U.S. Central Command. The squadron’s operations provided around the clock protection to U.S. and allied satellite communication links. The homecoming marked the end of a successful five-year mission supported by more than 150 men and women of the 21st Space Wing, and was a testament to the vital role space operations play in providing global support to the warfighter.
