Age 19

Named in honor of Major Ployer Peter Hill, Hill Field started as an ill-fated Air Mail experiment. Hoping to be located closer to the Salt Lake City area, the present-day site near Ogden was a clear favorite. In July 1939, Congress gave the green light for the establishment and construction of the Ogden Air Depot. Hill Field officially opened on 7 November 1940. Hill Field officially became Hill Air Force Base after World War II and continued to store and maintain warplanes during the Korean and Vietnam Wars. Today the Air Force Base is still in service, but it also has an Aerospace Museum on site where many people visit each year to learn of its history in Northern Utah.
