TRIBUTE TO ALL VETERANS
EC-47 MEMORIAL PLAZA PAVER PROGRAM
EC-47 Aircraft Display Memorial Plaza Scale Drawing Display Monument
A Vietnam War replica EC-47 Electric Goon aircraft, installed in front of the Goodfellow AFB wing headquarters on Oct. 28, 2005, stands in tribute to the intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance mission that has been the base’s training focus since 1958.
Supported by a grant from The Freedom Through Vigilance Association (FTVA), the local FTVA Heritage Chapter is sponsoring the addition of a plaza of memorial pavers adjacent to the aircraft as depicted in the scale drawing above. Nearly 1,000 of the 4x8-inch and 8x8-inch pavers with bronze engraving plates are available to honor veterans of all services and dates of service.
Memorials may be as simple as listing the veteran’s name, branch and dates of service on the four-line rectangle bronze plate - to adding a meaningful service emblem and additional service-related details on the larger seven-line round bronze plate. Engraved bronze plates will be installed and dedicated during annual Vietnam War Veterans Day ceremonies held at the wing headquarters flagpole area.
The new memorial plaza will be a place where all veterans from all branches of the military can be honored and remembered. It will be available as a setting for special ceremonies, as well as a sanctuary for quiet reflection.
There are two methods for purchasing these pavers. The online ordering process offers a PayPal credit card payment option and a choice of available paver locations. Or, you can download printable order forms and pay by personal check through the mail.
