More About Offutt Air Force Base

Today, Offutt Air Force Base is one of the largest employers in the Omaha metropolitan region, employing over 40,000 military and civilian personnel in a number of different areas of expertise. Offutt Air Force Base is located on about four square miles of land, and is home to approximately 8,900 people at any given time. The base was built on the former site of Fort Crook, an Army depot founded in 1890; several buildings and the parade grounds remain in use from the original Fort Crook installation. The site was also home to the L. Martin Bomber plant, which constructed aircraft for use in World War II; the planes that delivered the first atomic weapons to Nagasaki and Hiroshima were built at the plant.

Offutt Air Force Base gained additional national prominence when it was named the headquarters of the Strategic Air Command, the centralized nerve center for the U.S. nuclear air command. From 1961 to 1990, rotating shifts of military personnel were kept airborne 24 hours a day in an attempt to create an air command post that would be difficult to target in the event of war. Today, Offutt Air Force Base serves as the headquarters for the U.S. Strategic Command, which governs space operations and missile defense initiatives on behalf of the United States.
