Air National Guardsmen have deep connections to their communities, and the 184th Wing is strongly connected to the Greater Wichita Area. Many of our Guardsmen were born and raised in Kansas which strengthens the ties to our state. It's an honor to serve our communities.
Examples of our community support include interacting with local high schools, nonprofit organizations, chambers of commerce and other civic influencers. We partner with colleges such as Wichita State University, Kansas State University, Kansas University, Friends University, Butler Community College, and Southwestern Community College, just to name a few. Many of our Airmen are members of local councils, committees and associations.
