The Offutt Story
Offutt Air Force Base has enjoyed a long and distinguished history in support of our nation’s military forces. You are on an instillation that was originally built to guard the vast, unsettled plains west of the Missouri River. Since its construction in 1896, Offutt has been home to a balloon regiment, a World War II bomber assembly plant, a Prisoner of War camp and more recently, the headquarters of the most powerful destructive force on earth.
WILD, WILD WEST
Offutt began as United States Army Fort Crook, named after Civil War hero General George Crook – commander of the forces to whom Apache war Chief Geronimo ultimately surrendered. Many of the fort’s original structures remain in use today and are registered as national historic landmarks.
WILD BLUE YONDER
Combat in America’s west, in the Philippines and in Cuba occupied Offutt’s forces until September 1918. At that time, Offutt’s attentions were sent skyward as the 61st Balloon Company was assigned to command Fort Crook. The interest in flight soon prompted the purchase of neighboring cornfields for use as landing strips. By the spring of 1921, two hundred sixty acres of land had been leveled and seeded to create an operational airfield. Three years later the field was officially named Offutt Field, in honor of 1st Lieutenant Jarvis J. Offutt – Omaha’s first air casualty of World War I.
World War II
The Second World War brought new challenges to Offutt Field and Fort Crook. The fort hosted a camp for Italian POW’s, using the barracks across from General’s Row to house the prisoners. Offutt Field was simultaneously chosen by the Glenn L. Martin Company as the site for a new bomber assemble plant. Offutt produced five hundred thirty one B-29 bombers during the war years, including “Enola Gay” and “Bock’s Car”, the only aircraft ever to drop atomic weapons in combat. The factory brought with it a need for large, reinforced, paved runways – a fact that put Offutt on the map of strategic airpower once and for all.
THE COLD WAR
Following the birth of the United States Air Force, Fort Crook and Offutt Field were redesigned to Offutt Air Force Base, and one minute past midnight on November 9, 1948 Offutt became the headquarters for what would become the most destructive force on earth – the Strategic Air Command. The old frontier fort grew rapidly as the cold war formalized. Offutt has since hosted alert tanker and bomber units in the late 1950’s and 60’s, Nebraska and Iowa ICBM sites during the 60’s, and worldwide strategic reconnaissance operations from the mid – 1960’s to present.
Through the 1980’s the 55 SRW continued its worldwide operational missions and gained host responsibility for Offutt AFB in 1986. Operationally, the wing continued to perform its missions in support of the US defense against the WARSAW Pact, but also supported US operations in regional contingencies. These operations included Operation URGENT FURY in Grenada, Operations EL DORADO CANYON in Libya, and Operation JUST CAUSE in Panama.
While the 80’s introduced the wing to conventional contingency operations, the 90’s found such contingencies to be the status quo. In 1990 the wing was one of the first to deploy aircraft and personnel in support of Operation DESERT SHIELD. During Operation DESERT STORM the wing logged nearly 7,500 flying hours. While supporting these operations the 55 SRW was redesigned and restructured as the 55th Wing on 1 October1991, as part of an Air Force reorganization. Since the need of DESERT STORM, the 55the Wing sustained the highest operations tempo and deployment rotation, supporting Operations SOUTHERN WATCH, NORTHERN WATCH, NOBLE EAGLE, ENDURING FREEDOM AND IRAQI FREEDOM.
