This Air Force Base, located in Illinois' St. Clair County, is one of the 32 training camps for the Air Force that were established after April 1917. It is named after Captain Frank Scott who was the very first enlisted member to lose his life in an air plane crash. Camp Scott came into being in 1917 when it was used as a training base for providing flying instruction to World War I pilots. By the time the war ended, more than 300 pilots had received their training here. In 1947 when the Air Force became a separate service, Scott Field was renamed as Scott Air Force Base.

The 375 th Air Mobility Wing is the host wing at Scott AFB. Their mission is to ensure comprehensive support via the C-21 fleet stationed here. In addition, the 375 th AMW also has Total Force Integration partnerships with the Reserve and Guard in operating C-40 and KC-135 aircraft.
