Military Reunion Group Visits

Military ReunionsThe museum is a popular destination for many military reunion groups each year. Military reunion groups from all eras and services visit for a day or two; many groups return every few years.

Services available for military reunion groups include publicizing notices for reunions held in the local area and the ability to place a memorial in the Memorial Park. An event coordinator focuses on working with military reunion groups and can assist in planning your visit to the museum.

Memorial Park

The museum's Memorial Park honors Air Force-associated units and people for their courageous service and sacrifice in the cause of freedom. In October 1972, the museum dedicated the first memorial with a commemorative tree and plaque recognizing Americans held as Prisoners of War by the North Vietnamese and those missing in action during the Southeast Asia Conflict. Memorial Park has grown significantly since that first dedication, with more than 500 memorials, including statuary memorials, plaques, trees and benches.

For information about memorials currently in place, please view the map of the park and list of memorials or view the photos on the Memorial Park page.

Legacy Data Plates

Another option available to anyone are Legacy Data Plates, which can be purchased through the Air Force Museum Foundation. Click here for details about the Data Plate program.
