1. Reese AFB Texas Marker
Inscription. On 30 September 1997, Reese Air Force Base and the 64th Flying Training Wing were inactivated, culminating a tradition of “55 years of excellence” in serving our nation. Since 1942, 25,349 of the world's greatest pilots graduated from here, and the training and support they received from Base personnel and the men and women of the South Plains was unmatched. Reese Air Force Base may be closed, but our legacy will live forever!

Colonel Henry W. “Kodak” Horton, Commander
