Welcome to Shaw Air Force Base, S.C., home to the 20th Fighter Wing (the Air Force's largest combat F-16 wing), Headquarters Ninth Air Force/United States Central Command Air Forces, and several associate units. Shaw's units are assigned to Air Combat Command, Langley Air Force Base, Va.
The South Carolina Military Base Task Force (MBTF) is pleased to announce that our state is implementing
positive actions to improve the process for military spouses obtaining licenses and certifications. The Department of
Labor, Licensing and Regulation (LLR), which administratively supports more than 40 professional occupational boards,
has launched a Military Spouse identification link on their home page (https://www.llr.sc.gov/). Through this link, military
spouses will be able to submit their licensing application with priority recognition and processing. Additionally, LLR has
designated a staff liaison to work with each licensing applicant to ensure that the process goes smoothly.
For more information about the issue of military spouse employment in South Carolina, see the MBTF Issue Brief at:
