Kirtland Air Force Base was constructed in January through August 1941 as Albuquerque Army Air Base
and renamed Kirtland Army Air Field in February 1942.

It was named in honor of Colonel Roy C. Kirtland, one of the earliest aviation pioneers. In 1947, as the Army Air Corps became the United States Air Force, Kirtland Army Air Field became Kirtland Air Force Base.
