The 51st Combat Communications Squadron is located in 5th Combat Communications Group, whose mission is to train, deploy, and deliver communications, air traffic control, and landing systems for dominant combat operations.

"First in, last out" is the combat communications motto for good reason. Though Operation Iraqi Freedom officially began on March 19, 2003, the 51st Combat Communications Squadron had been in Iraq for months creating an intricate communications network from scratch. The network provided tactical communications, navigational aids and air traffic control services supporting all U.S. combat operations.
