San Antonio Laughlin Air Force Base History

 

at Laughlin Air Force Base

Laughlin Air Force Base lies 8 miles east of Del Rio, Texas, the county seat of Val Verde County. The base is just a heartbeat from the international Amistad Reservoir, shared with Mexico, and the Amistad National Recreation Area. Del Rio (“of the river”) connects with its neighbor, Ciudad Acuna in Coahuila, Mexico, by two border crossings: the Del Rio-Ciudad Acuna International Bridge and the Lake Amistad Dam International Crossing.

Laughlin AFB is the Air Force’s largest pilot training base and has one of the Air Force’s busiest airfields. It is home to the 47th Flying Training Wing, which graduates military pilots, deploys mission-ready warriors, and develops professional and confident leaders.

Population

Laughlin AFB has approximately 1,380 active-duty and reserve military personnel, 1,165 active-duty military dependents and more than 1,000 civilian personnel who live and work on and around the base.

HISTORY

Originally known as Laughlin Army Air Field in March 1943, Laughlin Air Force Base honors Jack T. Laughlin, the first World War II casualty from Del Rio. Laughlin was a B-17E pilot whose Flying Fortress was shot down and lost at sea off Borneo in January 1942 during a bombing run against Japanese warships and transports. It had been his first mission.

The facility, renamed Laughlin Field in November 1943, later became an Army Air Force auxiliary field. During World War II, its primary mission was to train B-26 bomber pilots and aircrews, but the war’s end in September 1945 ended its purpose and it shut down the next month.

Its subsequent use by local ranchers to graze sheep lasted seven years. As tensions built between the Soviet Union and the West, and North Korea invaded South Korea, the military reopened Laughlin AFB on May 1, 1952. In October, the Air Training Command transferred the base to the Crew Training Air Force and activated the 3645th Flying Training Wing (Fighter) to teach bombing and gunnery skills to replacement air combat pilots and crews headed for the Korean War. Initially, planes used were the F-80 Shooting Star, the Air Force’s first operational jet fighter; the F-84 Thunderjet fighter bomber, the war’s primary strike aircraft; and the T-33 jet fighter. Within a short time crews used only the T-33 because its two-cockpit configuration made it more suitable for training.

In September 1955, Laughlin swapped missions with Williams AFB, Arizona, to undertake single-engine pilot training, still using the T-33 under control of the Flying Training Air Force.

The Air Force transferred jurisdiction of the base to Strategic Air Command in April 1957, and the 4080th Strategic Reconnaissance Wing (Light) moved there from Turner AFB, Georgia. After graduating its last class in March 1957, the Air Training Command inactivated the 3645th Flying Training Wing.

The 4080th Wing provided high-altitude reconnaissance and air sampling for radiation with the highly classified Lockheed U-2A, the “Dragon Lady,” and the RB-57D Canberra, though existence of the U-2 and the CIA’s monitoring program burst into public awareness when the Soviet Union shot down a U-2 on May 1, 1960, and captured and imprisoned its pilot, Francis Gary Powers.

On June 15, 1960, the 4080th Strategic Reconnaissance Wing was redesignated the 4080th Strategic Wing. Its RB-57 mission was phased out, though the U-2s remained. In fact, U-2s from Laughlin were among the first to photograph Soviet missile installations in Cuba in 1962, triggering the Cuban missile crisis and a U.S. Navy blockade of the island. Photos from 4080th’s Maj. Richard S. Heyser’s U-2 and that of Maj. Rudolf Anderson Jr. showed the world the Soviet military buildup just 90 miles from the Florida coast. President John F. Kennedy addressed the nation on the danger, the United Nations got involved and the Soviets removed their missiles, though not before one was launched at Anderson’s U-2 and killed him. He was the sole known fatality from enemy action during the crisis.

In 1961, the Air Force expanded Laughlin’s mission to include an Air Training Command undergraduate pilot training program. Plans called to transfer in about half the students from Laredo AFB, Texas. Air Training Command reactivated the 3645th Pilot Training Wing (later redesignated the 3646th Pilot Training Wing) at Laughlin in October 1961 to prepare for the students and their T-37 Tweet and T-33 Shooting Star trainers. The 4080th Strategic Wing continued at Laughlin as a tenant organization until 1963.

Laughlin’s mission has remained the same since 1962: training top-quality military pilots, contributing significantly to the nation’s aeronautical progress and national security.

Today, aircraft flown at Laughlin include the T-6A Texan II, a single-engine turboprop; the T-38C Talon, the first supersonic trainer; and the T-1A Jayhawk, a twin-engine jet for advanced pilot training. Fifteen classes of 20 to 25 pilots graduate annually.

Appointments...........................................830-298-6333

Pharmacy................................830-298-6451/6453/6234

www.airforcemedicine.af.mil/MTF/Laughlin 

The 47th Medical Group provides medical, dental and aeromedical services in support of Laughlin’s specialized undergraduate pilot training mission and ensures medical readiness for wartime and other worldwide contingencies. The group is also responsible for the health care of more than 3,300 DOD beneficiaries. To that end, the group provides a wealth of medical services that include aerospace physiology, family health, flight medicine, immunizations, lab testing, mental health care, optometry, pediatrics and radiology.

Dental care services are dedicated to the oral care of military service members. Family members of active-duty personnel are encouraged to use the TRICARE Dental Program. Program information is available by visiting www.tricare.mil/CoveredServices/Dental/TDP.

TRICARE

TRICARE is the health care program for active-duty and retired service members, their families and survivors. TRICARE provides health plans, prescriptions, dental plans and other special health programs to its beneficiaries. TRICARE’s mission is to enhance the Department of Defense and the nation’s security by providing health support for the full range of military operations and sustaining the health of all those entrusted to their care.

TRICARE offers a range of health care plans. TRICARE Prime is the mandatory health care option for active-duty service members. Family members of active-duty service members, retired service members and their families may also use this option. If you use TRICARE Prime, you are assigned a primary care manager at a military or network provider who delivers most of your care. If you need care your PCM cannot provide, you are referred to a specialist. Active-duty service members and their families pay nothing out of pocket for this option; however, there is less freedom to choose your provider. On Jan. 1, 2018, TRICARE Standard and Extra were combined into a new plan, TRICARE Select. Select is a standardized fee-for-service plan available to family members of active-duty service members, retired service members and their families. After you enroll in TRICARE Select, you may schedule an appointment with any TRICARE-authorized provider. Referrals are not required, but you may need prior authorization from your regional contractor for some services. You will pay a copay or cost share based on the type of care and provider you see. Costs for Select vary, but you will pay an annual deductible as well as a percentage of covered services. Non-network providers may charge up to 15 percent more than the TRICARE allowable charge; you are responsible for these extra charges. TRICARE also offers plans for remote and overseas locations, reserve military members, young adults who are no longer covered under regular TRICARE coverage and other scenarios.

TRICARE coverage is completely portable, so it moves with you when you relocate. Follow these simple steps to ensure you have no break in coverage when you move:

  • Do not cancel your TRICARE Prime enrollment option before you move.
  • Update your personal information in DEERS immediately when you arrive at your new location.
  • Select a new primary care manager.

If you are already using TRICARE Select, moving is easy. When you arrive at your new location, update your personal information in DEERS. Then find TRICARE-authorized providers in your new area. Remember, you may have a new regional contractor and claims filing address.

TRICARE’s online tools can help you find and compare plans that you are qualified to use. Beginning in 2019, however, TRICARE will allow you to switch between plans only if you have a “qualifying life event” such as the birth of a baby or a move. For a complete description of the types of coverage programs and regions, visit www.tricare.mil. For more information about recent changes to TRICARE, visit https://tricare.mil/changes.
