History Quiz – week of Sept. 3

SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- Last week's answer:
What August 2, 1990 international event triggered the most significant deployment of U.S. military forces since the Vietnam War and ultimately led to what some military experts termed "the first space war"?  That international event was the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, which ultimately promoted the United Nations to authorize the use of force to eject Iraqi forces from its neighbor.  In the U.S. the operations were named Desert Shield and Desert Storm.

This week's question:
On September 1, 1950, the 50th Fighter-Interceptor Wing (now 50th Space Wing) was reassigned from 1st Air Force to what organization?
