ABOUT

Hill Air Force Base traces its origins back to the ill-fated U.S. Army’s Air Mail “experiment” of 1934, when the idea originated for a permanent air depot in the Salt Lake City area. In the following years, the U.S. Army Air Corps surveyed the region for a suitable location for the permanent western terminus of the air mail. Several sites in Utah were considered, and the present site near Ogden emerged as the clear favorite and was established in 1940.

In this decade Hill AFB is still the sixth-largest employer in the state of Utah, and the third-largest one excluding the State Government and Higher Education employers.

Hill AFB is the home of the Air Force Materiel Command’s (AFMC) Ogden Air Logistics Complex which is the worldwide manager for a wide range of aircraft, engines, missiles, software, avionics, and accessories components. The commander of the Air Logistics Complex is Brigadier General H. Brent Baker Sr. The Ogden Air Logistics Complex is part of the Air Force Sustainment Center.

The host unit at Hill AFB is the Air Force Material Command’s 75th Air Base Wing (75 ABW), which provides services and support for the Ogden Air Logistics Complex and its subordinate organizations. The Wing and Installation Commander of Hill Air Force Base is Colonel Ronald Jolly. Additional tenant units at Hill AFB include operational fighter wings of the Air Combat Command (ACC) and the Air Force Reserve Command(AFRC).

More than 20,000 military and civilian personnel are assigned to Hill AFB.

FOR THE CHILDREN
 

To be enrolled in a Utah school, a child must be at least 5 years old by September 2 of the upcoming school year. Check with the local school district for requirements.

In 2010, the majority of states, the District of Columbia, and the Department of Defense Education Activity adopted Common Core State Standards that provide a consistent set of educational expectations for students, regardless of ZIP code. When a family moves, a student’s education is often disrupted because the student may be forced to repeat material or learn at a different level at the new school. With common standards across states, this disruption will be reduced — of particular interest to military families. For more information, visit http://www.corestandards.org/.

Utah is semiarid, with low humidity and generous sunshine, and its temperate climate allows for outdoor recreation year-round. The area experiences four distinct seasons; the summers are typically hot and dry, but the evenings can be cool and comfortable. The winter months are not as extreme as one might expect considering the elevation is 4,300 feet above sea level. The Rocky Mountains to the east can see snow early in the fall and make for great skiing. January is the coldest month with an average temperature of 29.2 ° F; the warmest month is July, with an average temperature of 77 ° F during the day.

Precipitation is typically the highest during the months of March and May, with May averaging about 2.09 inches of rainfall. The first snowfall of the season is usually recorded in October; snow has been recorded in every month of the year in the mountains due to the high elevation. The Salt Lake International Airport records an average snowfall of 61 inches per year. Blizzards are rare in the area because of the lack of strong winds through the valley.

Because Salt Lake County and Weber County are next to the Great Salt Lake, they can be buffeted with deep lake-effect snow in winter. Cold westerly winds move across the lake’s warmer water and pick up water vapor, which freezes and falls as snow on the lands between the lake and the Wasatch Mountains to the east. Ogden gets, on average, just under 32 inches of snow a year; Farmington has more snowman potential with an average of 49 inches.

The overall cost of living index for Ogden is 91, which is 11% lower than the Utah average and 9% lower than the U.S. average. Everyday goods and services provide an accurate measure of the general cost of goods in any given city. In the case of Ogden, UT, the city’s goods and services are 2% higher than the Utah average and 1% lower than the U.S. average.

Hill Air Force Base is a major U.S. Air Force base located in northern Utah, just south of the city of Ogden, and near the towns of Clearfield, Riverdale, Roy, Sunset, and Layton.

Salt Lake City was named after the Great Salt Lake, which is the largest saltwater lake in the Western Hemisphere. The lake’s size fluctuates substantially throughout the year due to its shallowness. Sometimes called, “America’s Dead Sea”, the Great Salt Lake is not used for swimming or recreation, but is beautiful to visit. The sunsets are especially remarkable! The Willard Bay Reservoir, north of the Great Salt Lake, is a 9,900-acre freshwater reservoir where you can enjoy camping, boating and swimming.

Just 30 minutes south of Hill AFB, the Salt Lake City area, known as the Wasatch Front, offers lots of things to do.

No matter the season, there is plenty to do in this beautiful part of the country.

The Hill Aerospace Museum, located at Hill Air Force Base is a popular attraction that draws thousands of visitors each year.
