The Reflex force concept involved deploying bombardment aircraft non-stop from the United States to forward sites, with one air refueling. These aircraft remained on alert status for a specified number of days, then redeployed back to the United States.  The division never had any assigned units, such as wings, only individual aircraft that were assigned to wings back in the United States.  The division commander also acted as a representative to the Moroccan Liaison Office for the Commander, Sixteenth Air Force
