Mission Partners

Located 18 miles southeast of Trenton, N.J., the 42,000-continguous acres are home to more than 80 mission partners and 40 mission commanders providing a wide range of combat capability. The base spans more than 20 miles east to west. It is bordered by two of the largest counties in New Jersey, Ocean and Burlington, which include 10 townships or boroughs.

The 2005 Base Closure and Realignment Commission Recommendation 146 directed the relocation of installation support functions for New Jersey's Fort Dix and Naval Air Engineering Station Lakehurst to McGuire Air Force Base. 

JB MDL is home to the 87th Air Base Wing, which provides installation management support for 3,933 facilities with an approximate value of $9.3 billion in physical infrastructure. More than 44,000 Airmen, Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Coast Guardsmen, civilians and their family members living and working on and around JB MDL contribute to the economic impact for the state of New Jersey.
