Open air memorial with beautiful memorial plaques, gardens and helicopter and airplane. Beautiful areas to sit and reflect and privately thank those who served for our freedoms.

This War Memorial is just outside of Great Bend, Kansas heading west. It is well marked and is on the old airfield for training flyers during WWII.It is right off the Santa Fe Trail.A must see if you are in this part of Kansas.

Small but important part of WWII history located at the Great Bend Airport. The few existing huge B~29 hangers are impressive insize.

The B-29 Memorial Plaza is just outside of town near the airport. It is all outside and has a miniature model of a B-29 and some history regarding the importance of the aircraft to the area and to WWII. It’s a quick stop and worth it for veterans and/or history buffs.
