The 352nd Special Operations Support Squadron is an active land based unit within the 352nd Special Operations Group (352 SOG), United States Air Force, United States European Command, and is based at Royal Air Force base RAF Mildenhall, in Suffolk, eastern England.
352nd Special Operations Support Squadron provides support for two flying squadrons, one special tactics squadron and one maintenance squadron for exercise, logistics, and deployment planning; aircrew training; communications; aerial delivery; medical; intelligence; security and force protection; weather; information technologies and transformation support; and current operations.
The expeditionary design and flexibility of the 352nd OSS is regularly showcased and highlighted by its ability to operate simultaneously in up to four locations. The squadron's "can-do" attitude allows the group commander to focus on force application and project specialized combat air power in the EUCOM area of responsibility and elsewhere.
This where the command structure of the group is, and therefore must effectively plan for all the needs of the other 5 squadrons in the group:
- 352nd Special Operations Maintenance Squadron
- 7th Special Operations Squadron
- 21st Special Operations Squadron
- 67th Special Operations Squadron and,
- 321st Special Tactics Squadron
