As the first permanent naval air station in the U.S., Pensacola Naval Air Station (NAS Pensacola) became a pioneer in many fields of aviation. Since Pensacola has a climate that is suitable for year-round flying, the decision to build was apparent, and in 1914, after its creation, NAS Pensacola began a legacy of production. Within three years, the station produced the first altitude records as well as the development of aircraft catapult launching.

Citizens of Pensacola visit the park to reflect on the sacrifices of their loved ones who served our nation in WWI, as well as other wars. The memorial proudly represents the city and the men of Escambia County. It stands for those who cut the path before us so we can live free.
