Significance: Following WWII, the U.S. participated in a series of military and political events known as the Cold War. As part of its response, the U.S. government formed the Strategic Air Command (SAC) in 1946. In 1948 SAC moved to Offutt Air Force Base (OAFB), occupying a WWII complex built for the Martin Bomber Company and designed by the firm of Albert Kahn. In 1954 SAC built a new headquarters, including a hardened underground facility. From the headquarters, the Commander directed an international military force of long-range bombers and missiles, supported by more than 200,000 personnel. The Air Force made significant additions to the original buildings in 1959, 1962, and 1970. In 1987 a new underground command post was constructed. In 1992, as the Cold War ended, the SAC became the Strategic Command (STRATCOM), a unified command, including the Navy, charged with the deterrence of a military attack on the U.S. and its allies, and the employment of armed forces to achieve national objectives. The complex consists of several buildings, including the primary headquarters (OAFB Facility 501), an above ground office structure. The command center (OAFB Facility 501) is an underground building built in 1956 and 1987. The traffic check house (OAFB Facility 506) is a simple brick and metal structure used for security control.
