The history of the 332d dates back to World War II where members of the Army Air Corps flew dangerous missions escorting bombers to their targets over war-torn Europe. After the war ended the wing stood down for many years. Today, one deployed Airman remembers his four separate deployments with the wing spanning a nearly 30-year period. Chief Master Sgt. Jeff Vander Woude is currently the superintendent of maintenance at the 332d AEW, having arrived in-theater just weeks ago from the 114th Fighter Wing in Sioux Falls, Sd.
