Welcome to Scott AFB

Scott Air Force Base is a United States Air Force Base located near Belleville, Illinois. The base covers 3.7 square miles and has a population of 2,700 people. The base was established in 1917 when the training of airplane pilots began. The base was named after Corporal Frank S. Scott who was the first enlisted person to be killed in an aviation crash. Scott Air Force Base became the new home of the general headquarters of the Air Force for the entire United States Army in June of 1938. In preparation for that assignment, the base was completely redesigned, and new Colonial style administration buildings, barracks, and family quarters were built. Today, Scott is home to the headquarters of many major military organizations including the United States Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM), the Air Mobility Command (AMC), the United States Army Surface Deployment and Distribution Command (SDDC), and the Air Force Global Logistics Support Center (AFGLSC) as well as many others.
