Davis-Monthan Air Force Base is located in Tucson, Arizona. The area has a large population of military and retired personnel.
Davis-Monthan was activated in 1924. Charles Lindbergh officially conducted the base opening ceremonies. The base was named for two local early aviators, who died in separate flight accidents: 1st Lt Samuel H. Davis, and 2nd Lt Oscar Monthan.
The wing's mission is to deploy, employ and sustain expeditionary combat and combat support forces while enabling critical JFACC and HLS operations.
