The 375th Mission Support Group provides base-level support to all organizations assigned to Scott. The units that belong to the group provide a variety of services to the base community. The group is composed of five squadrons.

The 375th Civil Engineer Squadron is responsible for operating, maintaining, and repairing all base facilities and utilities worth an estimated $3.1 billion. The squadron's diverse mission includes cradle-to-grave management of all contract construction projects, community planning, fire and emergency services, accompanied and unaccompanied housing management, natural, capital and asset management, asset optimization, emergency management and explosive ordnance disposal. Through the Prime Base Engineer Emergency Force Team, they deploy anytime, anywhere in support of Air Force contingency operations worldwide.

The 375th Force Support Squadron provides quality of life services to the men and women of Scott, their families, plus the local community and surrounding seven-state region. They also provide personnel, services, manpower, education, training, family support, and enlisted professional enhancement to the military, civilian, and family members assigned to Scott during peacetime and contingency operations. The squadron organizes and executes the entire personnel portion of the deployment machine--training, processing, deployment and redeployment--resulting in a well-trained, rapid-response, war-ready force that keeps boots on the ground in theater and our homeland secure. In addition, it maintains the highest level of readiness for global deployment and in-theater mission support through Prime Readiness in Base Service Teams.

The 375th Logistics Readiness Squadron provides a wide variety of logistics services encompassing vehicle operations support, vehicle maintenance, personal property and freight movement, passenger travel--commercial and Air Mobility Command Patriot Express--and aerial port (military airlift) passenger, cargo and fleet services. They also provide aircraft and vehicle fuel support to all Team Scott and base visitors. The 375th LRS also provides base support to include: Equipment management, stock control and the war readiness element. The munitions section maintains accountability for all operational, training and mobility requirements for munitions. The squadron also serves as the wing's focal point for contingency planning, deployment and execution.

The 375th Contracting Squadron provides fully trained contingency contracting officers to support deployed commanders. The squadron accomplishes this by purchasing and managing base-wide operational contracts totaling more than $99 million annually for U.S. Transportation Command, Air Mobility Command, the 375th Air Mobility Wing and other assigned tenant organizations. In addition, 375th CONS manages the $25 million government purchase card program, providing support, and training to roughly 700 cardholders and almost 300 billing officials. Contracting serves as a key business advisor to the wing commander and creatively uses best-value tools to tailor acquisition solutions and innovatively, yet practically, help the base customers accomplish their wide-range of missions.

The 375th Security Forces Squadron provides security and law enforcement services to the Scott community while meeting worldwide mobility requirements. Their motto is "Defensor Fortis," which means "Defenders of the Force." The unit also provides combat arms and expeditionary combat skills training to Team Scott members. They provide biometric registration of base personnel, visitor control, police services, resource protection, confinement and investigations support to the Scott community and military working dog support to other federal law enforcement agencies. With a continuous mobility commitment, 375th Security Forces members represent the 375th Air Mobility Wing around the world.
