our unit history

Marine Corps Detachment Goodfellow currently resides on Goodfellow Air Force Base, the base was constructed in 1918 in support of advancing Air and Intelligence training post-World War 1. The base was named in honor of late General John J. Goodfellow Jr., a skilled and decorated aviator from World War 1. Goodfellow Air Force Base's runways were the nations forefront of advanced air training in cryptology and military intelligence until the runways were permanently shut down in 1975.

The first Marines began conducting intelligence training aboard Goodfellow Air Force Base in 1966 with tactical communications training and language skills improvement. However, the first detachment was very small as the main effort in intelligence training was based in Naval Auxiliary Air Station Corry Field in Pensacola, Florida. In 1992, the Air Training Command was replaced with the current title of Air Education and Training Command (AETC). A year later, Marines also began training for basic and advanced fire protection training. In 2015, the majority of courses moved from Pensacola to Goodfellow Air Force Base, where they currently reside.
