In the latest chapter of deciphering the USAAF structure, we take the various Commands and break them down into combat wings. These wings form the front line services, and many spanned times from as early as the First World War to current times. Some had short if virtually none existent lives.
The linage is way too complicated in many cases for an in depth analysis, so here we see those units who were formed prior to, or during, WWII.
Some will have been disbanded with the cessation of conflict, only to be reformed a few months later under a new designation or as part of another. Again some references are included, but most will stop at the end of the Second World War. http://wp.me/P4xjD9-Cf
