This memorial is dedicated to the memory of the MC-130 COMBAT TALON aircrew members who made the ultimate sacrifice while flying one of our
military's most critical and dangerous missions. The primary objective of these worldwide missions was the clandestine infiltration, resupply, and exfiltration of US and Allied Special Operations Forces.

Beginning with the first operational missions over the jungle of Southeast Asia, valiant and dedicated COMBAT TALON airmen continue to answer their great Nation's call and execute its challenging and demanding missions; without fail. Dedicated 24 April 2015, through the efforts of the Combat Talon Memorial Foundation and the worldwide Combat Talon community.

To our fallen heroes, we humbly and proudly dedicate this COMBAT TALON Memorial
