The Arizona Aerospace Foundation will be forever indebted to I. R. "Perk" Perkin for his tremendous vision, creativity, and dedication in the establishment of the Pima Air & Space Museum.

 
Regarding World War II Memorial Park. The WWII Memorial Park is comprised of a brick wall with plaques containing local businesses and veterans who contributed to this memorial park in some fashion. The park itself is small and simple but provides a quiet area for museum visitors to sit and rest for a bit out of the hot Arizona sun, under a few trees that give shade to this park.
