Moving to Dover AFB? Take a peak here to learn all about it…  

Dover AFB is home to the 436th Airlift Wing (436 AW) of the Air Mobility Command. If you’re moving to Dover AFB, you will have the privilege of serving in our country’s largest U.S. military mortuary, specifically known as the Air Force Mortuary Affairs Operations (AFMAO). Welcome to a team that humbly provides the military community with “dignity, honor, respect for the fallen, and care, service, support for the families.” The AFMAO at Dover AFB provides Army dignified transfers of fallen soldiers. A dignified transfer is not a ceremony, but rather a solemn movement of the transfer case by a carry team of military personnel from the fallen member’s respective service. Furthermore, the remains of those killed overseas are traditionally brought to Dover AFB prior to being transferred to their families.

While the discussion of fallen military members is often a difficult topic, the members of Dover AFB take their time here very seriously. One soldier was quoted as saying that his mission to Dover AFB has been “by far [his] most personally and professionally humbling but gratifying job [he’s] ever had the pleasure of being a part of.” The AFMAO team has a mission to ensure all families that the fallen Airmen will not be forgotten by providing the families with short and long-term compassion and support.
