Mission

The 224th Joint Communications Support Squadron is often the first to deploy in order to establish communications networks and other C4 services to enhance command and control between units, services, or coalition forces. Reporting operationally to the Joint Communications Support Element (JCSE), a subordinate command of the Joint Enabling Capabilities Command, U.S. Transportation Command, at MacDill Air Force Base in Florida, Georgia's 224th JCSS can globally deploy within 72 hours of notification to provide scalable C4 support to geographic combatant commands and U.S. Special Operations Command.[1]

Deployments

The unit expanded its mission in 2010 by bringing Deployable Joint Command and Control systems to JCSE from SOUTHCOM Headquarters in Miami. Georgia Guardsmen boarded the USS Iwo Jima for a five-month deployment providing support to the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps forces during Operation Continuing Promise 2010, a 13-Caribbean country humanitarian relief campaign.

Guardsmen of the 224th also deployed to Pakistan during the 2010 flood disaster to provide communications for the host nation and Department of Defense support efforts.
