A small base carrying out a big mission, Fort Worth Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base improves the operability of all four military services while also providing a high-quality training environment for active and reserve components for all branches.
On the site of the former Carswell Air Force Base, it was one of the first Strategic Air Command bases. The base became Fort Worth NAS JRB in 1994 as the first joint-service reserve base. As part of the 1993 base closure recommendations, tenant commands from area bases relocated to the base's 1,805 acres. The realignment has become a model for future consolidations. The Housing Welcome Center provides information, such as apartment rentals, home rentals, and sales, mobile home/lot rentals and other information relative to the Dallas Metroplex. Children attend schools in the Fort Worth Independent School District. Child care is available at Dallas NAS, with a base health care clinic and other care at Harris Methodist Hospital in Fort Worth.
Recreational opportunities on base include a gym, pool, tennis courts, bowling alley, auto shop, various clubs, ball and playing fields and various pavilions.
