Eglin’s influence in airpower history in the Air Force goes back more than 65 years and spans 6 wars. It has long been a proving ground and testing center for military tactics and equipment, with FDR relying heavily on their work during World War II. In addition to pilot training and new equipment testing, Eglin Air Force Base has also expanded to be the training ground for soldiers making attempts to rescue POWs and has served as a refugee resettlement center.
Today Eglin Air Force Base, while a community unto itself, is active in the local community as well, taking part in programs such as helping to restore an endangered species of woodpecker, and providing child care for volunteers.
