SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A New Mexico Air National Guard unit has a new name that reflects its current mission as a special operations unit.
    
The Air Guard says the 150th Fighter Wing on Sunday became the 150th Special Operations Wing.
    
According to the Air Guard, the change reflects the wing's new mission of training mission-ready aircrews in special operations and personnel recovery.
    
The wing will continue to perform other missions, including providing targeting and intelligence and making civil engineering heavy repairs.
    
According to the Air Guard, the change is made as part of a three-year reorganization of the 58th Special Operations Wing located at Kirtland Air Force Base in Albuquerque.
