The Myrtle Beach Air Force Base closed 20 years ago, but its history and memories remain.  For more than 50 years, the U.S. military had an off-and-on presence in Myrtle Beach, beginning in 1940, when the U.S. Army Air Field opened, to 1993, when the U.S. Air Force Base closed.  The photos below show:  the Army Air Field Headquarters in 1942; the Air Field as it appeared in 1943; one incarnation of the former Front Gate on Kings Highway; the Base Exchange, circa 1957, which was next to the Base Recreation Center; an aerial view of the runway from 1985; and a later incarnation of the Front Gate.
