Biographical Sketch

Situated on 2000 acres and located 10 miles west of Lubbock, Texas, Reese Air Force Base was named after 1st Lt. Augustus F. Reese, Jr., a pilot from Shallowater, Texas, who was killed in a bombing raid in Italy on May 14, 1943. It was previously known as the Air Corps Advanced Flying School and the Lubbock Army Air Field. On September 1, 1949, the name was changed to Reese Air Force Base. The base's history extends from 1941-1997 and after 56 years of training pilots the base was forced to close due to federal budget cuts on military expenses.

The Handbook of Texas has published a more in-depth online biography of Reese Air Force Base at https://tshaonline.org/handbook/online
