Monroe in Ouachita Parish, Louisiana — The American South (West South Central)
Dedicated - With Everlasting Gratitude-
To all personnel, military and civilian, who served at Selman Field and made possible the training of over 5,000 navigators who flew in every theater of operation in World War II.
In 1942 Selman Field was the nation's single complete navigation school of the Army Air Corp. Only at this base could a cadet complete his pre-flight and advanced training, receive his commission and navigator's wings, without having to leave this one location.
