The United States Air Force's 7th Air Support Operations Squadron (7 ASOS) is a combat support unit located at Fort Bliss, Texas. The 7 ASOS provides tactical command and control of air power assets to the Joint Forces Air Component Commander and Joint Forces Land Component Commander for combat operations. The desert terrain of Fort Bliss offers a perfect training ground for Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTACs) to continue their training.[citation needed] The support the 7th offers the army is sending JTACS to deploy with their divisions, for example, the 1AD (1st Armored Division), and acting as the gateway to the Air Force's attack aircraft to neutralize any hostile threats that the Army division themselves cannot face.
