Veterans, Airmen celebrate 75 years of 8 AF heritage

A sketch of the Headquarters Eighth Air Force building is signed by former and present Eighth Air Force Airmen during the Mighty Eighth Heritage 8K event at Barksdale Air Force Base, La., April 26, 2017. Veterans attended the event as part of the Eighth Air Force’s 75th anniversary, and met with current service members assigned to the base. Approximately 100 Airmen and their family members ran in commemoration of former commanders, Medal of Honor recipients, and ‘Mighty Eighth’ heroes as a way of recognizing and remembering the services and sacrifices they made for their country.
