19 years later, 19 still remembered

Members of the 33rd Fighter Wing, family and friends of those killed during the Khobar Towers terrorist attack pay their respects during a memorial ceremony June 25 on Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. On June 25, 1996, a truck-bomb was detonated adjacent to Khobar Tower in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, that resulted in 400 injured U.S. and international military and civilian members. The 12 Nomads honored at the ceremony were members of the 58th Fighter Squadron, 60th Fighter Squadron, 33rd Logistics Group, 33rd Maintenance Squadron and the 33rd Operations Support Squadron. They represented a cross-section of the wing as crew chiefs, expeditors, weapons loaders, mechanics, production superintendents, program managers and technicians. The memorial here honoring the Nomads’ memory was dedicated a year after the tragedy. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Marleah Robertson)
