The Airborne & Special Operations Museum Foundation will provide marketing and advertising efforts to the non-military community in support of the ongoing mission of the United States Army’s Airborne & Special Operations Museum (ASOM). The ASOM serves as an adjunct to the local academic and cultural community and provides military history of the airborne and special operations soldiers, from 1940 to the present, to active duty soldiers, veterans, their families and the public at large. The Foundation will conduct private and public fundraising efforts in support of this mission, ongoing ASOM programs, and future exhibit support.
The U.S. Army Airborne and Special Operations Museum serves as the custodian and repository of artifacts pertaining to the history of U.S. Army parachute, glider, and special operations forces, 1940 to the present, including airborne development, Office of Strategic Services (OSS), rangers, and other special units. The museum will collect, preserve, manage, interpret, and exhibit these artifacts. The museum will serve as an adjunct to the local academic and cultural community and will provide military history training and instruction to Soldiers and veterans, their families, and to the public at large.
