Troops Returing From Desert Storm

In 1990–91, Biggs Army Airfield supported the large-scale airlift of forces and equipment deployed for Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. Biggs Airfield continues to host C-5A Galaxies and other Air Force airlift aircraft which transport personnel and equipment on rotation to Southwest Asia and other theaters of operation. Biggs Field is the site of the annual "Amigo Airshow", held in October. The airfield is usually packed with spectators, as the attractions and army equipment encourage people to attend. A popular performer is the United States Navy Blue Angels, who make special appearances to perform aerobatic maneuvers for the crowd. (source:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biggs_Army_Airfield)

Air Defenders Statue

This statue, Air Defenders, is by Steve Streadbeck and is located on Main Post just inside the Pershing Gate. the 'First to Fire' statue was erected in 1989 to honor all air defenders. The faces of the brave soldiers reflect the intensity of combat and courage, competence and dedication typical of the young men and women who serve the Air Defense Artillery to this day. In 2010 it was relocated to Fort Sill, Oklahoma.
