The Memorial Garden pays homage to those who have served and made the ultimate sacrifice in the Eighth Air Force in World War II and subsequent wars. Plaques adorn walls and monuments and memorials dot the acres of the Memorial Garden as a lasting tribute by family members to their loved ones.
The Memorial Garden is anchored by a reflecting pool, and includes the Freckleton Air Disaster section, a memorial to the 61 fatalities that included 38 five-year old children who perished on August 23, 1944, when a B-24 bomber crashed in a thunderstorm into the Holy Trinity Church of England School in Freckleton, England.
The Columbarium serves as a final resting place for servicemen and women and civilians alike. For more information on this program, contact Pam Vining at firstname.lastname@example.org.
