- 30th Space Wing: In the
course of fifty-four years (1941-1995) many changes have
occurred along California's picturesque Central Coast,
but none has been more significant or enduring than the
establishment of Camp Cooke and its successor Vandenberg
Air Force Base.
- Activated in 1941, Camp Cooke was a U.S. Army training
center for infantry and armored troops preparing for
combat duty in World War II. After the war and a short
period of inactivation, the installation was called up
again for the Korean War in 1950. With the end of that
conflict in 1953 the camp was again shutdown.
- In 1957 Camp Cooke was transferred to the Air Force and
in the proceeding year renamed Vandenberg Air Force Base.
The base is operated by Air Force Space Command's 30th
Space Wing. Its mission at Vandenberg is to 1) conduct
space launch operations, 2) conduct flight tests of the
nation's intercontinental ballistic missile force, 3)
operate the Western Range that provides various
instrumentation support for government and commercial
space, missile, and aeronautical operations, and 4)
provide host base support services for the Vandenberg AFB
