US Army Air Corps Monument

 

 

 

 

   

 

 

 

Thank you for your support in creating a unique Army Air Corps Monument to recognize the gallantry of those American air crews that fought their way to and from heavily defended targets deep inside Europe and the vast Pacific.  This monument will serve to honor those young men and women who fought valiantly against seemingly insurmountable odds and changed the course of the war ensuring and Allied victory and securing the freedom which we enjoy today.

Historically, the United States Army Air Corps (USAAC) was the aerial warfare service component of the US Army from 1926 to 1941 until it became the United States Army Air Force (USAAF), giving greater autonomy from the US Army. In 1947, it was legislatively abolished to give birth to the US Air Force.  While the Army Air Corps only had a 20-year history, it was vital to the success of our efforts in World War II.

We are excited to be creating this important monument to their courage a reality.
