Kirtland Air Force Base History

Kirtland Field 1943

The 377th Air Base Wing History Office preserves the institutional memory of the 377 ABW and Kirtland Air Force Base. 

It produces an annual history of Wing activities and historical studies; maintains lineage, honors, and heraldry; answers historical inquiries; and promotes the heritage of the 377 ABW and Kirtland AFB.  In so doing, it supports the Wing’s mission through informed decision-making and improves esprit de corps. 

History informs us of how the past influences the present, and subsequently shapes the future.

Col. Roy C. Kirtland
