USAF associate structure
 
Within the USAF, both active duty and reserve forces (ANG and AFRC), an associate structure is maintained. Within this structure the wings involved retain their separate organizational structure and chain of command. Based on the classic or active associate structure either the active duty (classic) or ANG / AFRC (active) wing is responsible for the aircraft (weapons system).
