USAF Police Alumni Association
USAF Police Alumni Association Launches USAF Virtual Police Museum and Virtual Memorial to Honor Fallen USAF Police & Security Forces.
Alexandria, Virginia The USAF Police Alumni Association (PAA) was formed shortly after it was announced that the USAF Security Forces Museum located at Lackland AFB, Texas would be closed and consolidated with an existing USAF Heritage Museum at Lackland.
“Something had to be done to protect the proud history and traditions of the USAF’s largest career field” commented John Shanks (USAF retired, Law Enforcement), Founder and Co-Chairman of the USAF Police Alumni Association.
Shanks went on to explain that in today’s virtual and digital world you do not need a physical building to have a museum.
The USAF Police Alumni Association is proud to announce that on Wednesday, October 8, 2014, they will officially make public and launch the USAF Virtual Police Museum and Memorial. The Alumni Association will protect and preserve the proud history and heritage for the men and women who have served the United States Air Force and heroically protect
our bases and resources worldwide. This museum will tell the stories and traditions of the airmen who served as Air Police, Security Police and in the Security Forces. The Memorial will forever honor the service and sacrifice of those who came before us and paid the ultimate sacrifice in defense of the United States of America.
The Virtual Museum will include historical accounts, first hand recollections along with photo and video archives that will preserve the history of the law enforcement and security career fields. The history of USAF Air Police, Security Police and Security Forces spans 67 years and includes service in the Korean, Vietnam, Desert Storm, Gulf War and the War Against
The Memorial will forever honor the service and sacrifice of our fallen police airmen and will be a constant reminder that freedom is not free. The Memorial will not only honor these fallen heroes but will also be a place of remembrance and reflection. In time each fallen Peacekeeper and Defender will have his or her story told and will become a living memorial to
their service. As the Memorial grows family members and colleagues will be able to leave personal tributes for our fallen, creating a personal and everlasting living history. The USAF Police Virtual Memorial will be the place of honor and will recognize the sacrifice of the blue beret.
