Special Tactics memorial unveiled at Hurlburt Field:

HURLBURT FIELD — As the chief of staff of the United States Air Force, Gen. David Goldfein’s time is in high demand in Washington, D.C.

On Thursday morning, however, the general had a special message for the 800 or so people who gathered at the base’s airpark for the dedication of the nation’s first memorial to Air Force Special Tactics personnel.

“Today, there’s no place in the world … I’d rather be than here with you,” Goldfein said. “I’ve never been prouder to be an airman than I am today, standing on this sacred ground.”
