MAJOR COORPORATE DONORS
The Air Force Civil Engineer Memorial Committee continues to lead the development of the memorial, which is slated to open by the spring of 2022.
As you all know, the committee faced a significant challenge in deciding how to visually depict the diverse Civil Engineer mission. The committee ultimately agreed on a uniquely inspirational and informative design developed by Col (ret) Bill Sims. His design aims to honor all Airmen Engineers through a variety of symbols. This includes a map of the world that shows past and present installation locations and a stainless steel model of the winged compass and gear of the Civil Engineer badge. Engraved messages that salute RED HORSE and Prime BEEF also appear on the knee walls of the granite elements lining the sides of the memorial. The committee’s dedicated efforts reflect a commitment to honoring the proud heritage and promising future of the Civil Engineer community. With the location finalized, the plans will soon become a reality.
During the site selection in March, Maj Gen Byers stated “We are standing on the future site of the Air Force CE Memorial. With site approval now secured, we look forward to this representative memorial being prominently and permanently displayed in the shadow of the world’s largest Military Aviation Museum of the world’s greatest Air and Space Force, in their beautiful outdoor Memorial Park for all to experience and enjoy!”
