During the Second World War over 6,700 young Americans, members of the 2nd Air Division of the 8th United States Army Air Forces, based in Norfolk and Suffolk England, lost their lives in the line of duty. The Second Air Division Memorial Library is an outgrowth of an original idea of three senior officers of the 2nd Air Division, B/Gen Milton Arnold (2nd Combat Wing), Col. Frederick Bryan, Deputy Chief of Staff, Headquarters 2nd Air Division, and Lt. Col. Ion Walker, Ground Exec., 467th Bomb Group. It began with a fundraising effort launched before hostilities ended in 1945. An Appeal was launched to leave a permanent memorial to the fallen comrades of the 2nd Air Division. What resulted was the 2nd Air Division Memorial Library, which, through the Memorial Trust of the 2nd Air Division USAAF, has been funded largely through the 2nd Air Division Association which is comprised of former members of the 2nd Air Division USAAF.
