Originally founded as the Walnut Ridge Army Flying School Museum in 1999, we now operate as the Wings of Honor Museum. We were founded for the purpose of preserving the rich history of the Walnut Ridge Army Flying School, the Marine Corps Air Facility at Walnut Ridge, the War Assets Administration’s Warbird Storage, Sales and Scrapping Facility, and the USAF 725th Radar Squadron; and to remember and honor those civilian and military personnel who served to maintain our freedom.
To tell the rich history of the WWII Walnut Ridge Army Air Field;
To enlighten our guests about Arkansas’ many vital contributions to WWII;
To provide a visual overview of WWII, the most horrible, destructive war in all of history;
To honor America’s veterans, for they have preserved our Freedom;
To recognize and honor all Arkansas veterans who have served and those who have made the supreme sacrifice for our freedom;
To continually strive to make Our Museum better. (We welcome your comments, ideas, suggestions, and support)
The goal of this film festival is to keep the stories of our veterans and armed forces alive. To not allow them to simply fade away and be forgotten to time.
