The 81st Training Wing is in a constant state of transition. It is comprised of several Wing staff agencies and three large groups of squadrons. The groups are: the 81st Training Group, the 81st Medical Group, and the 81st Mission Support Group.
The 81st Training Wing is an important link in the chain through Second Air Force established by Headquarters Air Education and Training Command, Randolph Air Force Base, Texas. The largest training mission is to take young men and women, many fresh from basic military training, and teach them skills to benefit the United States and the Air Force, as well as sister services and foreign countries.
Keesler Air Force Base also does advanced training for doctors, nurses, and technicians in medical specialties.
