Favorite thing: MacDill Air Force Base is located at the southern tip of Tampa, surrounded on three sides by water and on the fourth by the city of Tampa. The land comprising MacDill AFB was in use by the US military as early as the Spanish American War, but wasn't officially under control of the military until 1939, when it was transferred to the War Department. In 1941, MacDill Field was established in honor of Colonel Leslie MacDill, who was killed in an aircraft accident in 1938. Today the base is home to the 6th Air Mobility Wing (6 AMW), which flies the KC-135R Stratotanker and the C-37A Gulfstream V.
MacDill is also home to Headquarters, United States Central Command (USCENTCOM), Headquarters, United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), Headquarters, United States Special Operations Central Command (USSOCCENT), and Headquarters, United States Marine Corps Forces Central Command (USMARCENT).
