The Arc Light Memorial at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, is dedicated to the 75 men who lost their lives flying B-52 missions against Communist forces in Vietnam between 18 June 1965 and 15 August 1973. Called Arc Light missions, these almost daily sorties required crews on temporary duty from their home bases in the United States to fly B-52's each carrying up to 60,000 pounds of bombs. Operating from Andersen, U-Tapao Airfield, Thailand, and Kadena Air Base, Okinawa, they performed conventional bombing, direct air support, and interdiction missions.
