History

When founded, the two launch squadrons at Vandenberg AFB divided launch duties, with the 4th Space Launch Squadron working with Titan II and Titan IV vehicles while the 2d worked with Delta II, Atlas, and other launch vehicles. On 18 May 1998, the two squadrons merged into one, the 2d. The merged squadron was responsible for overseeing all launch operations at Vandenberg AFB. The reason for the merger was the similarity in missions performed by both units.[2]
