A BRIEF HISTORY OF JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON
Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson or JBER as it is popularly known, is a joint base of the U.S Air Force and the U.S Army. It was created in 2010 by merging Elmendorf Air Force Base with Fort Richardson.
Construction on the Elmendorf Airfield started in 1940. The air field was named after Captain Hugh M. Elmendorf who died in 1933 after the experimental fighter he was testing near Wright Field, Ohio, crashed.
Air Corps personnel started arriving at the air field a few months after construction began. Later that year, Elmendorf Field was re-designated as Fort Richardson. In 1947, the army moved its units to a new Fort Richardson nearby and handed over control of the air field to the Air Force, which renamed it as Elmendorf Air Force Base.
The air force base was an important pivot in North American defenses during the Cold War and the Korean War. At its peak in 1957, nearly 200 fighter planes were assigned to the air base, which were managed by 18 aircraft control and radar systems.
