In honor and memory of those who served
27 March 1945
"Too much credit cannot be given to these men of the 12th Army Group, Ninth Air Force tactical team who are relentlessly battering our foe on the ground and from the air. They beat him on the beachhead, drove him from the occupied nations, crushed him in his own Rhineland, and next will destroy him in the heart of his Fatherland. It is these fighting men who are responsible for our past successes, and it is their indomitable spirit which assures a speedy and crushing victory for our cooperating arms."
//s// Omar N. Bradley, Lt. General, U.S.A. Commanding.
