What is a host unit?The host unit at an Air Force installation is the unit which provides the base support infrastructure – i.e., is responsible for the security, power, sewer, and other elements required for the day-to-day operations of the base. The 375th Airlift Wing is the host unit at Scott AFB.
What is a tenant unit?Tenant units at an Air Force installation are units which have a mission that is significantly different than that of the host unit, and rely heavily upon the host unit for day-to-day operations (sewer, power, security, recreation). At Scott, there are 25 tenant units. They include the U.S. Transportation Command, Headquarters Air Mobility Command, Defense Information Systems Agency, 932nd Airlift Wing (Reserve) and the 126th Air Refueling Wing (Air National Guard).
