From the time you enter the gate, you will get a since that Holloman AFB is different. Often called the "Friendliest Place on Earth", the guards have the duty of protecting the base and they do it with a smile! Currently Holloman AFB is home to the F-22A Raptor and more than 30 tenant units.

A testing ground for the latest fighter technology, such as the F-117 Stealth aircraft, Holloman Air Force Base serves at the forefront of modern military operations around the world. The installation's high tech also serves as a training center for the German air force's Tactical Training Center.

Established in 1942, the base was renamed in 1948 to honor the late Col. George V. Holloman, a pioneer in guided-missile research. Holloman AFB is in New Mexico's Tularosa Basin between the Sacramento and San Andreas mountain ranges, 10 miles west of Alamogordo and 90 miles north of El Paso, Texas. The local school system runs an elementary and secondary school on base, with off-base schools in Alamogordo. The 49th Medical Group provides health care in an eight-bed hospital; dental and primary care clinics are also available, with the Gerald Champion Hospital in nearby Alamogordo.

Many on-base recreational opportunities are available such as: golf; pools; equestrian facility; fitness center; bowling; aero club; arts and crafts, auto shops; youth center; camping; and a library.
