The following design shows how all
Eleven (11) Army Aviation O-1/L-19 Birddog Units will be
commemorated on the monument. the eleven monument faces. There will be
twelve(12) panels total. The twelfth panel will be dedicated to a
description of the Birddog and the Missions that the eleven units
conducted in Vietnam.
The Memorial will be erected in a
park directly across from the Army Aviation Museum at Ft. Rucker.
The park is maintained by Ft. Rucker. Example of other unit Memorials
already at the park are shown below.
It is envisioned that our memorial
will be topped with a bronze scale model of the Birddog.
Also since the memorial will be
hollow inside, it is also envisioned that this space will be used as a
time capsule containing something from each unit.
