The CAT/Air America Memorial Plaque



The CAT Association and the Air America Association selected the Special Collections Department of the Eugene McDermott Library at the University of Texas at Dallas to display the CAT/Air America Memorial Plaque.

The CAT/Air America Memorial Plaque was designed and paid for by funds from the memberships of both the CAT Association and the Air America Association. In 1987, the CAT and Air America Memorial Plaque was dedicated during a solemn service. The plaque stands as a memorial to the sacrifices made by CAT/Air America personnel during the Cold and Vietnam wars. Each year dozens of family members and friends visit the plaque to honor the memory of those who died in the defense of freedom.
