Officials at JB Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, on Sept. 16, 2010, dedicated the memorial to the four airmen who died July 28, 2010, in the crash of a C-17 transport assigned to the joint base's 3rd Wing. A 1:24 scale C-17 model is the centerpiece of the Sitka 43 memorial, which stands in the main hallway of the 517th Airlift Squadron's headquarters. Here, Lt. Col.
