The 355th Operations Support Squadron directs operational support functions such as base operations, air traffic control and intelligence. They also develop flying schedules for roughly 14,000 sorties a year.

Staff Sgt. Amanda Villarreal, 355th Operations Support Squadron noncommissioned-officer-in-charge of wing scheduling, reserves air space for installation aircraft at Davis-Monthan on June 4. The map sitting on her desk illustrates the airspace by sections, allowing her to quickly and easily schedule airspace over areas such as Tombstone, Ariz.

Senior Airman Ralph Ruiz and Airman 1st Class Chris Greg, both from the 355th Operations Support Squadron base operations, complete paperwork after coordinating with other agencies, such as 355th Fighter Wing Command Post, on runway activities at Davis-Monthan. One of the primary duties of Airmen assigned to base ops is to track inbound and outbound aircraft.
