F-111 Memorial Dedication: October 14, 2022 ---- Register today! ---- See you there!


 F-111 Memorial, National Museum of the United States Air Force

Welcome! The goal of the F-111 Memorial Foundation is to design, construct, and donate a memorial to the National Museum of the United States Air Force, acknowledging the units that operated the Vark/Raven, and the men and women who flew, maintained, and supported the jet. The F/FB/EF-111 community has stepped up and we are well on our way toward our goal — a memorial of which we can be proud!

National Museum of the United States Air Force, Memorial Park

The museum’s Memorial Park honors Air Force-associated units and people for their courageous service and sacrifice in the cause of freedom. In October 1972, the museum dedicated the first memorial with a commemorative tree and plaque recognizing Americans held as Prisoners of War by the North Vietnamese and those missing in action during the Southeast Asia Conflict. Memorial Park has grown significantly since that first dedication, with more than 500 memorials, including statuary memorials, plaques, trees and benches.
