17th and 71st Special Ops Squadrons

Dedicated to the members of the 71st Special Operations Squadron, a USAF reserve unit, and the 17th Special Operations Squadron, a regular USAF unit. The 71st ferried the AC 119Gs to Vietnam and established the aircraft as an effective defensive weapon in early 1969. The 17th continued with the Shadow until the end of the Vietnam conflict.

We especially dedicate the memorial to our comrades who have "slipped the surly bonds of earth" as they made the ultimate sacrfices.
