Gowen Field Memorial Park - Gowen Field, Boise, ID


The most recent edition to the park is this memorial to All Idaho Army National Guard Aviators. 

On 19 March 2015, the pillars that composed the original gate to Gowen Field were moved from the Idaho Military History Museum to the entrance of the Gowen Field Memorial Park.
