The Air medical Memorial was founded in 2009 to honor all air medical line of duty deaths. Currently, the memorial recognizes mroe than 400 Line of Duty Deaths and maintains a comprehensive web site and database of air medical accidents and loses. The organization has received roughly 10 acres of land near Littleton, Colorado, where the group intends to build a permanent memorial and park.
This site is also the location for the annual Air Medical Memorial Remembrance Ceremony where line of duty deaths from the prior year are recognized.
Eventually, the memorial will include a wall with the names of the fallen as well as several sculptures. This memorial overlooks a valley near the foothills of Rocky Mountains.
