    Artifacts of the Green Monster are displayed in the Airman Heritage Museum Oct. 19, 2020, at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas. The 3700th Air Force Indoctrination Wing constructed the Green Monster on Nov. 3, 1952. Troops gave the building the nickname, 'Green Monster,' due to its large size and olive drab exterior. By early 1977, the mission of the 'Green Monster' was no longer needed. The Airman Heritage Museum is more than just a building that contains objects frozen in time. It includes a portion of the history and heritage that helped create the organization we identify as the United States Air Force. (U.S. Air Force photo by Sarayuth Pinthong)
