    Historical note

    Air Material Command was a United States Army Air Forces command, between 1944 and 1946, and United States Air Force command, between 1946 and 1961. Its headquarters were located at Write-Patterson Air Force Base, east of Dayton Ohio in Greene and Montgomery counties. The materiel division’s primary role and responsibility was procurement and research & development. The functions of research and development and logistics were operated separately during World War II until they were reunited for several years in the late 1940’s under Air Materiel Command.
