memorial to Air Force special tactics airmen was dedicated Thursday at
Hurlburt Field, Florida, the culmination of a four-year effort.
The focal point
of the memorial is a 7-foot bronze statue of a special tactics airman
in operational gear atop a black granite base, according to an Air
Force news release. There will be pedestals on both sides of the statue
with the names of fallen special tactics airmen -- 19 killed in combat
and eight in training.
Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein led the dedication ceremony, pictured below.
