Boozman & Cotton Recognize Eureka Springs Aviation Cadet Museum

Written by Press Release

May 15, 2019

WASHINGTON–U.S. Senators John Boozman (R-AR) and Tom Cotton (R-AR) introduced a Senate resolution recognizing the Aviation Cadet Museum in Eureka Springs as America’s National Aviation Cadet Museum. 

From 1917 to 1965, the flying cadet and succeeding aviation cadet programs served as the primary production source for nearly 500,000 joint service pilots, navigators and bombardiers. The bravery, courage, dedication and heroism of these aviators and their supporting ground crews during World War I and World War II were critical factors in defeating our nation’s enemies.

“Preserving the history of our nation’s aviation cadets demonstrates our gratitude for their sacrifice and service. For more than two decades, the Aviation Cadet Museum has been dedicated to sharing their stories and educating the public about our nation’s military aviation history. I’m proud to honor the accomplishments of these heroes whose achievements in the air helped defeat our adversaries.” Boozman said.

“Our nation’s aviation cadets fought bravely in our nation’s defense, and we should honor their service,” said Cotton. “This resolution will help ensure their legacy is long remembered.” 

Founded in 1994 by former aviation cadet and Air Force First Lieutenant Errol Severe, the museum preserves and promotes an understanding of the aviators who built the air arm of this nation. It honors the teamwork, collaboration, patriotism and courage of those men as well as those individuals on the home front who mobilized and supported the national aviation effort in the 20thcentury.
