As the Defense Department’s only tri-service installation, Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst is home to five wings spanning 42,000 acres. JB MDL’s host wing, the 87th Air Base Wing, supports 88 mission partners by providing unrivaled installation support to all mission commanders and sustaining mission-ready expeditionary service members to our combatant commanders.

Our mission, “Warfighters Supporting Warfighters,” reinforces DoD efforts to deter and defeat adversaries of the U.S and U.S. Allies and Partners. Our vision as America’s Premiere Joint Warfighting Base ensures our Total Force members are postured and ready with a credible worldwide force to assure, deter and defend in an increasingly complex global security environment.
