Alphabetical List and Histories
of All Nuclear SAC Bases by
State or Country

SAC was established on March 21, 1946 as one of three commands of the US Army Air Forces. Initially under General George Kenny at Bolling Field, Washington, D.C., SAC headquarters settled at Offutt AFB near Omaha, Nebraska under the command of General Curtis LeMay In October of 1948. The new separate Air Force was born September 18, 1947. Part of the SAC Mission certainly was to provide “long range offensive operations in any part of the world” in the form of a nuclear reach as a deterrent to future aggression.

The Alphabetical Review is a list of bases, air stations, and airports that the United States Air Force has occupied since 1947. Many bases have had name changes, so each separate name has been listed.
