The Michigan Air Guard Historical Association (MAGHA) has completed construction of a Memorial Area in the center of the Air Park at the Selfridge Military Air Museum. The memorial is a place to honor all members of the military who gave their lives in the line of duty and in the service of this great nation, to recognize all those who have in the past or who are currently serving their country, and to acknowledge the contributions made by families and companies to the preservation of freedom.
Photos of the Memorial Area and the Memorial Wall are pictured above. The centerpiece of the Memorial Area is an elevated F-86 Sabre aircraft, an aircraft flown, maintained, and supported by three Michigan Air Guard units in the mid-1950s. Flanking the F-86 is the Memorial Wall topped by engraved Memorial Bricks in honor or memory of those who have served their country or are currently serving their country.
We invite you to become part of this memorial and to recognize a unit, an individual, or a family by purchasing an engraved brick that will become a permanent part of the Memorial Wall. Cash donations for the Memorial project are also welcome. All memorial brick purchases and donations for this effort are tax-deductible per Section 170 of the Internal Revenue Service Code. Engraved memorial bricks cost $100 per brick for non-members (cost includes a one-year membership in MAGHA), $75 per brick for members of MAGHA, and $50 per brick when multiple brick orders are made. For example: a one-brick order from a MAGHA member would cost $75, a two-brick order would cost $125, and a three-brick order would cost $175.
