Dover AFB is located in the "First State" and the center of the Delmarva (Delaware, Maryland, & Virginia) Peninsula.

Dover Air Force Base is home to the 436th Airlift Wing, commonly known as the "Eagle Wing" and the 512th Airlift Wing, the Reserve associate, as the "Liberty Wing." Team Dover refers to both of the Wings. Dover is home to the C-5 Galaxy and C-17 Globemaster III.

Team Dover's mission focus is to safely fix and fly aircraft, prepare and deploy Airmen, move cargo, and return America's fallen heroes with dignity, honor and respect.
