1. Lt. Gerald Stull USAF Marker
Inscription. "On May 5, 1958, Lt. Gerald Stull USAF was returning to Truax Field from a training mission when his F-102A fighter jet faltered and headed toward the residential neighborhood along Hudson Park. Lt. Stull forced the jet back toward the lake, at which time he knew he would have to ditch the plane into the lake at a steep angle. He ejected upon impact and died as a result of injuries he sustained in the crash. His selfless heroism saved the lives of many and he is remembered and appreciated by everyone throughout this community."
 
Erected 2009 by Friends of Hudson Park.
