The NationalMuseum of
the United States Air Force (NMUSAF) started the Memorial Park in 1971 as a way
for units and individuals associated with the Air Force to be honored for their
contributions to the Air Force. The Khobar Towers Memorial is just one of over
500 memorials located in the park.
The original rock that was used at the Prince Sultan
AB, Khobar Towers Memorial, was sent to the Air Force Museum when
the Prince Sultan AB was left by US troups. However the original
plaque was missing when it arrived at the museum.
