Save Barbers Point, Naval Air Station, Memorials

In Mar 2018, a public donated memorial dedicated to over 50 years of existence, contributions, and sacrifices by the US Navy, was removed from Barbers Point Naval Air Station, without prior consultation or open discussion with the community, its elected representatives (the Neighborhood Board), Veterans groups, or civilians who served in a support capacity.
This very important community monument and memorial was not just dedicated to the Navy P-3 squadrons but also to WW-II Pacific battles, Korean War, Vietnam War, Cold War, Gulf War, national defense and NASA space missions that the air station personnel supported during its 76-year history.
The active duty servicemembers, military veterans and civilian community raised public funds in the late 1990’s to erect the monument memorial which was dedicated in 1999 to the service of Naval Air Station Barbers Point and the many US Navy, US Marine, US Air Force, US Army and US Coast Guard units that served there during the 76-year air station history.
After the Navy real estate BRAC office transferred parcel number 7 ownership of the Navy property with the monument to Hunt Corporation of Texas, in March 2018, on a weekend, without community input, veterans input, or consultation with the community, entities removed the centerpiece of the memorial from its base and removed the “Naval Air Station Barbers Point 1942-1999” memorial letters.
This petition is to request that everyone in a capacity to do so, support the return of this Naval Air Station Memorial, or a replacement, immediately, back into its rightful position on the former Naval Air Station, to serve as a reminder to those who served and those who paid the ultimate sacrifice in support of their country.
