1. Airman Dining Hall Marker
Inscription.  The Airmenís Dining Hall, building 245, a large facility capable of simultaneous feeding of several hundred airmen, was located in this area of The Market Common.

The Dining Hall was centrally located with respect to the Airmenís Dormitory Complex. It served four meals daily, the fourth meal being served at midnight for those who were assigned to night shift duties.

The Dining Hall staff was often cited for excellence of operations and for the high standards maintained in food preparation, variety of meals, cleanliness and sanitation.

All Unit Commanders on the base were invited to eat at least one meal monthly in the dining hall and provided feedback to the staff as a means to continually assess the quality and service being provided to the airmen.
