The United States Air Force's 628th Air Base Wing (628 ABW) is an administrative unit located at Charleston Air Force Base, in North Charleston, South Carolina. The 628 ABW was activated on 8 January 2010[1] to merge Charleston AFB with Naval Weapons Station Charleston as a result of the Base Realignment and Closure Program.

Base support services provided by the 628 ABW will include housing and facilities maintenance, security, childcare, public works, communications, finance, logistics, medical support, personnel, public affairs, legal, food service, contracts, and recreation.

The 628th Air Base Wing's primary duties are to provide installation support to 53 DoD and Federal agencies, servicing a total force of over 79,000 airmen, sailors, soldiers, marines, coast guardsmen, civilians, dependents and retirees on Charleston AFB and Naval Weapons Station Charleston. They maintain $2.0B worth of physical infrastructure across 23 thousand non-contiguous acres. Additionally, they also provide expeditionary airmen to combatant commanders in support of joint and combined operations.
