Welcome to the FAO Association

FAOA is organized for educational, professional, fraternal, and social purposes, as well as promoting esprit-de-corps and information dissemination among past and present members of the Armed Services, who have served or are serving as foreign area specialists around the world, and to further the common interests of the corporate body of FAOs (active, reserve, retired, and former military service).  FAOA serves as an advocate for FAOs within DoD by preserving the history of the military career specialty.  We publish a peer-reviewed Journal of International Affairs, sponsor events featuring guest speakers relevant to the FAO discipline, and conduct networking happy hours known as "FAOs on TAP" throughout the year.
