This memorial is dedicated to all the fallen soldiers who operated the P2V aircraft, the predecessor to the current P-3 Orion. Over 50 fallen soldiers are honored on this simple, but heartfelt memorial. This memorial is focused only on personnel stationed at Whidbey Island in Whidbey Island Squadrons.
