Memorial Flag Garden



The National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force is honoring and remembering the 26,000 airmen of the Eighth Air Force in World War II who never returned home with Remembering the Fallen: 26,000 flags | One Mission.

This unique memorial flag garden of remembrance includes a 48-star American flag for each of the 26,000 men lost. The men of the Eighth in WWII served, and many are buried, under this flag.

The public is invited to experience the garden beginning on Sunday, May 17, through Monday, May 25, Memorial Day.

The mission of the National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force is to preserve and share the stories of the heroes of the Eighth; each of these flags represents a hero who made the ultimate sacrifice.

You can help the museum honor these heroes by sponsoring the project, ensuring, that while they may be gone, they never will be forgotten.
