A MONUMENT TO ALL WHO SERVED
WITH THE STRATEGIC AIR COMMAND


 

Peace is Our Profession
Peace is Our Profession
1946 - 1992

 

The Strategic Air Command, "SAC", was established on the concept of having a "force in being", and ready to go at a moment's notice.  It's mission was unique: to not fight a war, but to deter one.  Toward that end, its primary mission was nuclear retaliation.  It's missiles could only be used once and few of its bombers were expected to return from a strike against the Soviet Union.  SAC's war, if it ever came, would last less than a day. No other military organization has ever had such awesome power.  Coupled with that power, none have ever exerted such tight control over it, nor demonstrated such restraint in using it.  These are accomplishments without equal in human history and they need to be documented so that future generations will benefit from the lessons learned.
