|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The museumís Memorial Park is located south of the main entrance to the museum building complex. The 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.
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Geographic Names Information System (GNIS) feature ID for the Wright-Patterson Air force Base, on which the museum is located, is 2512499 (Wright-Patterson Air Force Base).
