Duncan Field

Art Leatherwood General

Duncan Field, in San Antonio, came into being at the end of World War I as a division of Kelly Field. It was named for Maj. Thomas Duncan, who was killed in an air crash in Washington, D.C., in 1923. Duncan Field was used as an aircraft-repair depot and was joined to Kelly Army Air Field in 1942 (see KELLY AIR FORCE BASE).
