This monument honors 1220 American airmen who, on 18 September 1944, air-dropped food and military supplies over Warsaw to help the Polish Home Army during the Warsaw Uprising (1 August - 2 October 1944). One hundred and seven B-17 Flying Fortresses from the 8th Air Force, escorted by one hundred and fifty P-51 Mustangs, flew from England over the Baltic Sea to Warsaw. One B-17 and two P-51s were shot down and a number of American airmen lost their lives. This mission was the only combat action in Poland undertaken by American forces in World War II.

In everlasting gratitude for the help and sacrifice by the American airmen who flew the mission
