A Brief History of the Laughlin Air Force Base
Laughlin Air Force Base is located close to the Mexican border. As the
largest pilot training base in the USAF and with its reputation as the
'friendliest little base in Texas', Laughlin is quite well known.
This base boasts of more takeoffs and landings on weekdays than any airport
across the U.S. Not surprising considering that Laughlin is also one of
the busiest installations for specialized undergraduate pilot training
within the Air Education and Training Command.
This base was set up in 1947 and named after Lt. Jack Thomas Laughlin who
was the first Del Rio resident to give his life for the country during
the World War II. After a brief inactivation in October 1949, this base
resumed operations in mid 1951 at Langley Air Force Base. A second inactivation
and subsequent reactivation a decade later in 1972 witnessed the base's
shift to Laughlin Air Force Base. The base is home to the 47
th Flying Training Wing.
Present Day Laughlin Air Force Base
The Air Force has recently adopted new measures in a bid to curb the rising
rate of sexual assault crimes within the ranks. Now, airmen who are proven
guilty of sexual assault will be discharged from service. In addition,
senior commanders will be required to review the action taken in such
cases. In conjunction, both these measures are expected to bring down
the incidents of sexual assault and trauma at military bases across the country.
In line with the current focus on preventing sexual assault in military
establishments, several initiatives are being taken at Laughlin Air Force
Base. As part of these initiatives, the base will soon hold its first
two day Target Hardening and Intervention program. This class will train
the participants in self defense and risk reduction techniques, teach
them how sex offenders often identify their victims and what one can do
as a bystander to prevent such assault from taking place. The course curriculum
is a mix of judo, krav maga, jiu jitsu, kickboxing and many other martial
Apart from teaching the enlisted members to defend themselves and others
in event of sexual assault it is also important to educate them on the
importance of getting competent legal help in such scenarios. As a highly
experienced Laughlin military defense attorney, legal professionals like
Joseph Jordan can provide the right guidance and advice for airmen and
women facing a Laughlin sexual assault court martial and/ or other charges.
