Fort Detrick started as a small municipal airport established at Frederick, Maryland in 1929. Originally called Frederick Air Field, it was renamed Detrick Field in honor of Squadron Flight Surgeon Maj. Frederick L. Detrick, a native of New Market, Maryland. Detrick was born in 1889, served in France during World War I, and died in 1931.
