History

Modern-day Eglin evolved from an honorable past. Eglin began as the Valparaiso Bombing and Gunnery Base, established in 1935. On August 4, 1937, the base was redesignated Eglin Field in honor of Lt. Col. Frederick I. Eglin, who died in an aircraft crash. Today, Eglin hosts some 50 associate units representing virtually every major command including our sister services, the U.S. Army Ranger Camp, and the U.S. Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal School.
