The Ground Forces Detachment of the Commemorative Air Force was created as a unit to focus on the integration of ground vehicles, living history, and other non-flying activities with traditional CAF flying events. Through this, the public will be able to experience a richer, more diverse perspective of the life and equipment of the Greatest Generation.
Join us and be a part of the ground force movement!
