NELLIS AIR FORCE BASE, Nev. — The 926th Group celebrated the stand up of a new unit during a Mandatory Unit Training Assembly here April 6.

The 926th Security Forces Squadron activated and command was handed over to Maj. Dan Nuqui at a ceremony in the Flanker hangar.

“I’m appreciative of the efforts to stand this unit up and have it almost fully manned in under a year,” said Col. John Breeden, 926th Group commander. “The men and women in security forces have a lot to do to train and qualify for deployment, and I look forward to working with them.”

Air Force Reserve Command initiated the activation of several security forces squadrons in order to meet the increased deployment dwell rate. Once trained, 926th SFS Airmen will augment the active-duty Air Force in deployed areas of responsibility.

“I just returned from deployment, and I recognize that it’s One Team, One Fight,” said Nuqui. “We are a joint and total force in support of the mission.”

Before relocating to Nellis AFB, the unit was long standing at Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base, New Orleans. It was constituted as the 926th Weapons System Security Flight in 1971. It was re-designated the 926th Security Police Flight in 1988, then the 926th Security Police Squadron in 1992, and then 926th Security Forces Squadron in 1997.
