A MONUMENT TO ALL WHO SERVED
WITH THE STRATEGIC AIR COMMAND
|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.

Permanent maintenance of the Strategic Air Command Monument at Naval Air Station Fort Worth will be turned over to the Texas Air National Guard in March of 2010.
