Boom Operator Memorial – Altus AFB, OK

Click for a 50 Megapixel image

This memorial is a lasting tribute to those who gave the last full measure of devotion that freedom might survive lost in the steadfast performance of duty they, their crews, and families have the gratitude of an eternally thankful nation. It is with solemn pride and a heavy heart that we acknowledge these who have laid so costly an offering upon the altar of freedom and ensured we shall never forget their sacrifice.

  1. SSgt Bill Burly was killed on February 2, 1957 in the accident out of Sculthorpe England. Frank Schwiegert took my place on the crew and was killed on his first flight on the KB-29p. Would appreciate it if you would add his name. Manny Alegria, MSgt retired boomer
