TACAMO Hall of Fame: "The Originals"

In 2012 TCVA, in concert with then Commodore Chocko Baker, established the TACAMO Hall of Fame. The concept was sound and as can be seen it was put 'into stone' then until the lawyers and Air Force got involved. Notice how well the stone has survived the Oklahoma weather under the loving care of the Wing staff. These stones are directly in front of the Herc's nose gear in Herc Park alongside the TACAMO Wing, NAS OKC. TCVA continues to maintain the Hall of Fame every year and feature all the inductees and their stories on our website, tacamo.org. On November 12, 2018 in Charleston SC, TCVA will present the 2018 TACAMO Hall of Fame Inductees.
