In memory of all World War II Glider
Pilots who received advance training
and silver "G" wings at South Plains
Army Air Field, Lubbock Texas during
the period of 13 July 1942
through 15 January 1945.

These volunteers flew fragile, unarmed
gliders on eight major airborne invasions
of Europe and Southeast Asia. Many paid
the supreme sacrifice for their country.
