Your FAO Association has been busy and we are excited to report much
progress on the design and development of the FAO Heritage Display in
the Pentagon. Now we need your help in gathering more information and
content that will finalize the already approved proposal and space to
allow construction in the last phase.
What we need? Photographs (historical and current FAO's in Action),
Artifacts (including unique gifts), and other memorabilia for display
To support, please review the following links:
DRAFT content for History (Cabinet No. 1)
- we are especially in
need of photographs and/or small artifacts
DRAFT content for FAO Legend Biographies (Cabinet 2)
- LTG Vernon Walters
- LTG James Van Fleet
- LTG Samuel Wilson
DRAFT content for FAOs in Action (Cabinet 3)
. We are seeking
recent photographs/stories of FAOs in the field related to any of the
three primary FAO disciplines; security cooperation, intelligence, and
Map of where the FAO Heritage Display space is located
reserved area (see note)
Note: The added Reserved space is allocated for future use, which is
where a larger artifacts display could be hosted along with the
development of a FAO Awards Program, Hall of Fame, and Roll of Honor.
In addition to any physical items you might have to share, also please
forward any other ideas including content you think is noteworthy for
adding to the Historical Chronology (Cabinet 1).
The goal is to have the display completed by the end of March 2013.
Your input is appreciated and will be considered if received by 11
January 2013. You can forward comments to the following email address,
our lead for collecting items, Mr.
will be able to further assist whether it is to review language
or share a mailing address to receive loaned artifact material.
We appreciate any feedback and/or material you have to share. This
display has been a long-time FAOA Charter goal now inching closer to
becoming a memorable reality.
FAO Heritage Display Co-Chairs

This is a great idea. I would suggest that you also reach out the the U.S. Army Heritage Center up in Carlisle, PA and West Point. The Department of Foreign Languages and the West Point museum has some good resources to tap into as well.

Are services other than Army welcome to contribute?
