In February 1968, the USAF approved a program to develop AC - 119 gunships for Special Operations duty in Southeast Asia. Their specialized missions included air interdiction, clandestine air support, armed reconnaissance, and air base defense. These aircraft were based in Phan Rang, Phu Cat, and Da Nang in the Republic of Vietnam, and Udorn and Nakhon Phanom in Thailand.

This aircraft memorial is dedicated to those who maintained and flew the AC - 119 in the defense of freedom and commemorates those who selflessly gave their lives to preserve the ideals of freedom loving people everywhere.
