On September 2, 1958 Soviet MIG Fighters shot down United States Air Force C-130 #60528 over Armenia.

This memorial is dedicated in memory of the seventeen airmen who perished that day, and their Armed Forces compatriots who were killed, injured, taken prisoner, or unaccounted for in other incidents while performing a mission vital to America's security.
