Air Medical Memorial
The Air Medical Memorial is a national memorial that honors flight crews who died in the line of active duty. This includes the pilots and medical crew members of both helicopter (HEMS) and airplane (FWEMS) operations. The memorial will be located southwest of the Denver metropolitan area.
When open in 2013, the memorial will feature a granite wall with the names of more than three hundred and fifty honorees lost since 1972. Beginning in 2014, names will be added if necessary in an annual ceremony and dedication.

The Air Medical Memorial will be an outdoor plaza occupying an area of approximately 3,000 square feet. This plaza will feature a bronze sculpture surrounded by a granite wall that includes the names of honorees. The bronze sculpture, by artist Mark Lundeen, will feature three figures that represent a typical flight crew. This will be comprised of a pilot and two medical personnel. The granite wall will include the engraved names of honorees organized by accident date. The memorial will be designed to accommodate additional names as necessary.
The Air Medical Memorial and Survivors Network are working with the design firm Stanley Consultants to further develop the concept and to ensure longevity and durability through design, construction and material selection.

This is a place for you to rest, reflect, and be rejuvenated,
to replenish your lost and weary soul,
to remind you that you are not alone.
In the quiet of this place may you find healing for your heart, mind, and spirit,
that leads to forgiveness, gratitude, and an acceptance of life redefined
so that peace may be yours.
The Survivors Garden is a reminder of the resilience of the human spirit and a celebration of finding light in the darkness.
