The base traces its beginnings to 1934, with the establishment of a temporary Army Air Corps depot in Salt Lake City which supported airmail operations. Due to this activity, representatives promoted the area as a possible site for a permanent installation. In 1939, $8M was earmarked for construction of an air depot near Ogden, Utah. The site was officially named Hill Field on December 1, 1939, after Maj. Ployer P. Hill. Since it's inception, Hill Air Force Base has played a major role in the United States Air Force war fighting efforts from WWII to the present day. Hill is a hub of activity for the depot maintenance of numerous aircraft and weapons systems, as well as other military logistics and parts programs. The base is also home to the 75th Air Base Wing and the flying activities of the 388th and 419th Fighter Wings. For a complete history on Hill Air Force Base please go to the installation homepage.
