A Brief History and Overview of
The Patrick Air Force base was established as the Naval Air Station Banana
River in 1940. It is located on a barrier island between Cocoa Beach and
Satellite Beach in Florida's Brevard County. The base was initially
a subordinate of the NAS Jacksonville, Florida, and was commissioned for
anti-submarine patrol along the coast of Florida, during the World War II.
The transition of the base from a Naval Air Station to a
US Air Force base took place in 1948. In 1950, the base was named Patrick Air Force
Base in honor of Major General, Mason Patrick. In 1971, the Defense Equal
Opportunity Management Institute was established at the base.
The air force base, which hosts the 45th Space Wing (45 SW), has supported
historical space rocket launches. The officers and the airmen of the 45
SW manage all the launches of unmanned rockets and satellites for the
US Army, the NSA, and the NRA. The base also supports NASA, the NOAA and international
clients like the European Space Agency with its scientific payload launches.
Present Day Patrick AFB Community
The present day Patrick Air Force Base is home around 14,717 personnel.
The base has three housing areas, besides the recreational housing facilities
on the beach, enlisted clubs, a commissary, two chapels, a library and
other facilities that cater to the leisure and recreational needs of the
members. There is also an Air Force Space and Missile Museum at Cape Carneval
Ari Force Station at the base.
In addition to the deployment support and readiness programs for airmen
and their families, the Patrick AFB community also hosts fitness and health
programs, and recreational events, and family support services. Patrick
AFB may be a strong community, but the possibility of a small tiff on
the field turning into an aggressive assault cannot be ruled out. While
the crime rate in the air force base may have not reached an alarming
level, active members of the base can face intricate punishments if proven
guilty of an offense, unless they seek the services of a
Patrick AFB UCMJ lawyer.
