Overview PRINTPrint this page | Submit Feedback

Kelly Air Force Base is 1 of 4 remaining major AF Industrial Centers that comprise a worldwide logistics network in Air Force Material Command. Kelly is home to the San Antonio Air Logistics Center, the Air Force News Agency, Air Intelligence Agency, Defense Commissary Agency-Midwest Region, the 433rd Airlift Wing (U.S. Air Force Reserve) and the 149th Fighter Wing (Texas Air National Guard). The installation is located on the southwest side of San Antonio and covers 3,924 acres. Kelly is scheduled for closure/realignment in July 2001. Kelly AFB traces its beginnings to Nov 21, 1916, when Major Benjamin Foulois selected the site of a new aviation field five miles south of San Antonio. Initially, the site chosen was called the South San Antonio Aviation Camp. In June 1917, it became Camp Kelly, then Kelly Field, in honor of Lt George E.M. Kelly, who crashed while attempting to land a Curtis "pusher" aircraft at Fort Sam Houston May 1, 1911. Lieutenant Kelly was the first American military aviator to die in the crash of a military plane.

In 1946, the Kelly Logistics Depot was defined as a separate facility called the San Antonio Air Material Area, a title it retained until 1974 when it became the San Antonio Air Logistics Center. Kelly Field became Kelly Air Force Base in 1948 after the Air Force was established as a separate branch of the U.S. armed services. Kelly is a part of the Air Force Material Command.

The 76th Air Base Wing Mission Statement is to provide superior readiness, service, and support for the San Antonio Air Logistics Center, tenant units, and the Kelly Community, as we transition into the future.
