    104th Fighter Wing/Public Affairs

    The 104th Fighter Wing assembled to honor fallen members of the wing. Annually the wing gathers to re-dedicate the F-100 memorial in honor of the memory of their fellow Guardsmen from the 104FW, who have given their lives in the performance of their duties to the state and the country. Colonel Peter T Green III, the 104FW base commander, lead the somber ceremony. The memorial was originally dedicated on May 17, 1987, by the Chief Master Sergeants Council and has stood as a constant memory of these guardsmen in the history of the 104FW.
