Airmen remember Myrtle Beach Air Force Base

March of 2013 marked 20 years since the Myrtle Beach Air Force Base closed.

More than 500 airmen and their families came back to the old base to honor the anniversary.

"Some people are sad about the base closing cause we had so many good memories here," said Don Urban.

The Market Common is now where the old base was. Many things have changed, but there's still some pieces of the base left behind.

Many airmen felt the base was the best kept secret in the service because of its close proximity to the beach.
