The A-37 "Dragonfly" began service with the USAF as a trainer in the 1950s. The A-37 made its debut with the Special Operations when the USAF needed this low cost, high efficiency jet to deal with increased guerrilla activity around the world. In 1967 A-37s were modified for attack duties and assigned to the 604th Air Commando Squadron, Bien Hoa, Vietnam. Following a brief period of flight testing, commandos were flying armed and visual reconnaissance missions and night interdiction raids. The first A-37s arrived at Hurlburt Field in 1969, where training was conducted for the USAF and for the DOD's Military Assistance Program. A-37s remained in the USAF's active arsenal into the 1990s. This memorial is dedicated to the personnel who flew and maintained the A-37, especially those who lost their lives in service of the nation.
