Norton Air Force Base Museum Opens

Washington, Mar 15, 2013 - On Wednesday, the long-awaited Norton Air Force Base Museum and 63rd/445th Military Wing Memorial was officially dedicated and opened to the public. More than 200 people were in attendance for the momentous occasion, including many of the men and women who served and worked on the base. Additionally, members of the Leland Francis Norton family, a San Bernardino Army Air Corps Captain who was killed in WWII and for whom the base was named after, were present. I was unable to attend the event due to votes in Washington this week however representatives from my office provided a U.S. Flag flown over the U.S. Capitol on Veterans Day to the Museum. I am pleased that this museum is now open so that current and future generations of San Bernardino County residents can learn about the history of Norton Air Force Base.
