Bear River Massacre
Col. Aaron Blum, 75th Air Base Wing, represents Hill Air Force Base at the memorial ceremony hosted by the Northwestern Band of the Shoshone Jan. 29 for the Bear River Massacre. The annual memorial was held northeast of Preston, Idaho at the site along the Bear River where more than 300 members of the Northwest Shoshone Tribe were killed in their winter camp on Jan. 29, 1863. The Bear River Massacre was the single greatest loss of Indian lives in American history. Idaho Governor Brad Little attended the memorial and made an official proclamation recognizing Jan. 29, 2019, as a day of remembrance to the Bear River Massacre.
