I was stationed at this base from April 1976 to August 1979 and never heard the name.. Eaker AFB. It was Blytheville AFB the whole time. I do not know where this name came from and if this was the name it had when it closed in 1992, it must have been given the name after I left in 1979.
The following is a closed discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.
The result of the move request was: moved as requested, per the discussion below. There was an old cut-and-paste move and significant edit history at the requested target, but luckily (?) it was all part of the copyvio that took out most of the edit history here, so it didn't need to be saved.

Eaker Air Force Base → Blytheville Air Force Base – Use name by which the base was known throughout its life, except perhaps during its last four years of operation, and by which it is known currently (as in 2018 National Register of Historic Places registration).
