March AFB history:

March Air Force Base became March Air Reserve Base on 23 March 1996.

The original deed was drafted in 1918 by the Riverside California Chamber of Commerce naming the present site as Alessandro Aviation Field. The realignment began when the announcement of the Air Force Base closure came in 1993. March was the oldest Air Force base on the West Coast. They began flying operations in 1918 and was a major training base during both World War I and II. Though its time as an active Air Force Base has ended, many of the base facilities have remained open to serve the over 60,000 military retirees in the area.
