The airfield portion of Fort Crook was designated Offutt Field on 10 May 1924. Offutt Air Force Base is a U.S. Air Force base south of Omaha, adjacent to Bellevue in Sarpy County, Nebraska. It is the headquarters of the U.S. Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM), the 557th Weather Wing, and the 55th Wing (55 WG) of the Air Combat Command (ACC), the latter serving as the host unit. Offutt Air Force Base is home of the 55th Wing, the Fightin’ Fifty-Fifth, which is the largest wing in Air Combat Command and the second largest in the Air Force.
