Museum Collection

The Borinquen Field/Ramey AFB Museum just acquired a photo album which holds an extraordinary significance in the history of the base.

25th Bombardment Group - Borinquen Field 1939

25th Bombardment Group – Borinquen Field 1939

The album belonged to Pvt. R.M. Lahti of the 25th Bombardment Group. The 25th was the first Group to be stationed at Borinquen Field in 1939.

Airman Lahti documents in photographs, not only the arrival of the 25th to Borinquen Field, but the continuous development of the Field.

The images from this album will be studied for some time to come and will become available for viewing thru the upcoming Museum section of the RAFBHA website.

Treasures such as this only become a reality thru donations made to the RAFBHA and the Borinquen Field/Ramey AFB Museum. A special thanks for all of you that have done so. The purchase of this priceless album would not have been possible without your help.
