Since inception, the 31st AMXS has deployed in support of Operations Southern Watch, Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom, in addition to supporting Operation Joint Forge from in-garrison. The squadron is postured to seamlessly transition back-to-back deployments in support of both Air Expeditionary Forces 5 and 7, while maintaining its edge through an aggressive flying hour program to include frequent weapons training deployments throughout Europe, such as Rodopi Javelin to Bulgaria, Anatonlian Eagle to Turkey, and Viper Lance to Romania. The squadron's proven commitment to maintenance excellence has led to several outstanding achievements and recognition at all levels. The 31st AMXS was selected as the USAFE Maintenance Effectiveness Award winner for 2005, 2006 and 2007 and went on to win the 2007 U.S. Air Force Maintenance Effectiveness Award. In 2008, the 31st AMXS received the 2008 Secretary of Defense Field-level Maintenance Award. Finally, the 31st AMXS was a key contributor to the 31st Maintenance Group earning the USAFE Clements McMullen Daedalian Maintenance Award for Maintenance Excellence for both 2006 and 2007.
The 31st Aircraft Maintenance Squadron proved they were not only the premiere maintenance squadron in the Air Force, but also in the Department of Defense, winning one of the six 2008 Secretary of Defense Field-level Maintenance Awards.
