Mlitary.com honors and remembers the fallen.
The Air Force recently unveiled its first Special Tactics Memorial at a dedication ceremony at Hurlburt Field Air Park, Fla. In the last 40 years, only 10 Airmen have received the Air Force Cross, the second highest medal that can be bestowed for valor in combat. Eight of those recipients were special tactics Airmen whose names are now etched on the monument. Flanking the statue will be two pedestals with the names of fallen special tactics Airmen — 19 Airmen killed in action and eight in training. A photograph of the monument is available on the Air Force website.
