Construction of the Indian Springs Auxiliary Army Airfield started shortly after the attacks of Pearl Harbor and was finished and opened in 1943 with a small staff. In 1947, it was closed. In 1948, it was reopened in response to the Cold War and in 1950 it received its first permanent unit.
In 2005, the base was renamed to Creech AFB. Today Creech AFB continues to engage in ongoing overseas contingency operations against terrorism as the birthplace of the global MQ-1 and MQ-9 remotely piloted aircraft enterprise.
The base is located approximately 45 miles from the Northwest part of the Las Vegas valley. Most active duty personnel prefer to live in the Northwest part of the Las Vegas valley though some choose to drive from Summerlin or North Las Vegas which adds an extra ten minutes of drive time.
