We owe the Museum Foundation a great thanks for their work on our project.  Not only have they been handling the pavers, but, they have also held our funds and issued checks for us upon request.  Without their assistance we could not have been this successful.  Please stop by and say hello to these folks when you are at the museum.  Dianne and Jackie were our contacts and helped us daily.

A extraordinary memorial created specifically for all Eleven (11) U.S. Army Aviation 0-1/L-19 Birddog Units and the Personnel who served & sacrificed within these units is now installed at a special memorial site across from the Army Aviation Museum located at Ft. Rucker, Alabama.

THE DATE OF THIS DEDICATION HAS BEEN SET FOR FRIDAY OCTOBER 9, 2015 OUTSIDE THE FT. RUCKER, ALABAMA ARMY AVIATION MUSEUM.

ABOUT

This unique memorial has been created as recognition of the service that these units and their dedicated personnel performed during a difficult time in our country's history.

The memorial itself recognizes all eleven (11) U.S. Army Aviation units that were created and served in Vietnam in the years 1963-1971. Within these units there served an approximate 20,000 personnel that ranged in positions from Company Commanders, Pilots, Crew Chiefs, Fuelers, Maintenance, Support, Clerks, Cooks, Drivers, Observers and many others, all of whom risked their physical well being in the service to their country.

Many members of these units gave their lives in the ultimate sacrifice. Some were never found and to this day are still listed as "Missing". To this group, we can never truly repay what they gave and lost but to this honored group of personnel, this memorial will have a special place for each person's name.
