About This Post

Post Namesake
William M. Randolph, Capt. US Army Air Corps. Birth: Sep. 19, 1893 Austin Travis County Texas, USA Death: Feb. 17, 1928 Texas, USA A native of Austin, Texas, Capt. Randolph attended Texas A&M before entering the Army in 1916. He earned his wings in 1919 after completing pilot training at Kelly Field, Texas. During his short 9 year career, he earned a remarkable record and contributed immeasurably to the progress of aviation. On February 17, 1928, Capt. Randolph was killed when his AT-4 crashed on takeoff from Gorman Field, Texas. Randolph Field was dedicated in his name on June 20, 1930, with an estimated 15,000 people attending and a fly-by of 233 planes, possibly the largest assembly of military aircraft in the world. After the Air Force became a separate service on September 18, 1947, Randolph Field was officially renamed Randolph Air Force Base on January 13, 1948 as a flying training base and it continues that mission today. Capt. Randolph is buired at Ft. Sam Houston National Cemetery San Antonio Bexar County, TX USA.
