Stout Army Air Field
Established in 1926, the airport was a stop along a transcontinental air route from New York City to Los Angeles. The airport was officially named for Lt. Richard Harding Stout, a decorated veteran of World War I who had died in an airplane crash at Fort Benjamin Harrison.
Post WWII, Stout Field sat unused once again until it was transferred back to the control of the Indiana National Guard in 1947. By 1977, all land unused by the National Guard was sold, the western half of Stout now a maze of semi-trailers, shipping department, recycling facilities and stockpiled Humvees.
They have recently renovated the building, which will house the Indiana Army National Guard, Indiana Air National Guard, Indiana Army National Guard Recruiting and Retention Battalion and the 38th Infantry Division Band.
At Stout Field, one of the main jobs they perform is the Weather Mission, which involves using computer-intensive job skills to analyze and forecast atmospheric weather and space environmental conditions for decision-makers. The 207th Weather Flight operates out of Stout Field. Located in Indianapolis, Indiana, the mission of the 207th Weather Flight’s mission is to provide weather forecasts utilizing advanced computer job skills to analyze and forecast atmospheric weather and space environmental conditions for decision-makers.

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/.
