Tinker Air Force Base History

The History Office serves as the official archive of the Air Force Sustainment Center and Tinker Air Force Base and is occupied with numerous duties connected with the preservation and writing of the history of the Center and the local installation in Oklahoma.

Its primary responsibility is to prepare an annual history of the AFSC. This detailed historical document serves as a vital management tool for Air Force, military and civilian leaders and personnel.

Other duties include the preservation of historical artifacts, preparation of books and written studies on topics related to AFSC, Tinker AFB, the Air Force and the region.
