If you have a day or weekend, you will want to take this “Sentimental Journey” to a former WWII B-17 Training Base in Halls, TN. Operational from 1942 – 1945, it was the last stateside training for the B-17 crews before going overseas. 7,700 crewmen trained here of which 115 crewmen lost their lives.
The Museum features the in-depth history of the Dyersburg Army Air Base, located 13 miles south of Dyersburg; 65 miles from Memphis.
Ladies enjoy the tour as guides explain why the base was “the young girls’ dream and the widows’ delight.”
