Morning Mission (1941-1945)

The memorial as it stands at the Tulsa International Airport today.

“During World War II, 16,000 young men of the United States and Allied Nations received flight training at the Tulsa Municipal Airport and subsidiary fields. Of these, 14,000 were trained by Spartan School of Aeronautics and 2,000 by the United States Army. In memory of these gallant gentlemen – and particularly of the scores who lost their lives in combat – this statue is gratefully dedicated.”
