This article was written March 1, 2016 and references the 689 Combat Communications Wing twice. 1st reference: "689th Combat Communications Wing has two groups with 21 squadrons." 2nd reference, "The 24th’s 689th Combat Communications Wing consists entirely of communications squadrons, which reflects the Air Force’s approach of combining communications and cyber. Gen. Wilson explains that cyberspace operations include communications skills. While this approach has been criticized in the past, the general points to several advantages in combining cyber and communications."

The 689 CCW deactivated in 2013 and along with it one of those active duty Groups (3rd Combat Communications Group) but it is references as if it were still active.
