The National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force will be Open on Memorial Day, Monday, May 27th.

Flags for the Fallen

26,000 Flags | One Mission

 

The National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force is honoring and remembering the 26,000 airmen of the Eighth Air Force in World War II who never returned home with Flags for the Fallen: 26,000 Flags | One Mission.

This unique memorial flag garden of remembrance includes a 48-star American flag for each of the 26,000 men lost. The men of the Eighth in WWII served, and many are buried, under this flag.

The public is invited to experience the garden beginning on    Friday, May 24, through Monday, May 27, Memorial Day, 2024.

The mission of the National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force is to preserve and share the stories of the heroes of the Eighth; each of these flags represents a hero who made the ultimate sacrifice.

You can help the museum honor these heroes. One Hundred percent of the funds donated to Flags for the Fallen go to the Museum’s mission of honoring the Fallen during Flags for the Fallen and the perpetual care of the Memorial Garden which was established by the surviving members of the Mighty Eighth Air Force to honor and remember their fallen comrades. Both organizations and individuals are invited to purchase a tribute sponsorship.
