War II Memorial will be the first national memorial dedicated to all who served during

Berlin Airlift Sites
|Over fifty years ago on June 26, 1948 the Berlin Airlift began
days after the U.S.S.R. closed all land routes to the city. Their hope was to drive the
Allies out of West Berlin.
The United States refused to give West Berlin
up, responding to the Soviet challenge with an airlift. The divided city, still wounded
from the war, required a minimum of 4,500 tons of supplies each day to survive. A scratch
force of C-47s flew in 80 tons on the first day. Maj. Gen. William Tunner, famous for
flying "the Hump" to supply the Allied war effort in the China-Burma-India
theater during World War II, assumed command and soon had Douglas C-54s landing in West
Berlin every 90 seconds, day and night.
The tonnage built to 2,000, then 4,000, then 8,000, then an incredible
12,000 tons per day, more than had been dispatched by surface routes before the blockade
began. The shocked Soviet Union recognized it was beaten and withdrew the blockade April
