Scott AFB would have big role in bombing campaign against Syria

No matter what, however, it's certain the Air Mobility Command, based at Scott Air Force Base, near Belleville, Ill., will play a critical role in supporting a bombing campaign against Syria, principally because of its role in coordinating air-to-air refueling for American fighters and bombers, according to John Stillion, a military analyst in Washington, D.C.
