Why is Austin airport called Bergstrom?

ABIA began as Del Valle Army Air Base and was activated in September 1942. The base was renamed in honor of Captain John A.E. Bergstrom, the first Austin native to be killed in World War II, in November 1943. Although the base was deactivated in 1993, the name remained when it reopened as an airport in 1999.

The name is not without controversy, and several local groups have sought to change it to honor other notable Austinites, from Lyndon B. Johnson to Willie Nelson.
