    March 2015

    Spring is nearly here in Fayetteville and at the ASOM Foundation we’re busy getting ramped up for our events season.

    First, I am proud to announce that the exhibit “Task Force Ranger and the Battle of Mogadishu”  has won the John Wesley Powell Prize.  The exhibit was submitted to a nationwide competition among Federal Institutions and it is quite an honor to be bestowed upon our Museum.  For its its thoroughness of historical research, high level of technical expertise, and the ground breaking aspects of the exhibit, it was chosen for this prize.

      March 2015 Artifact of the Month

    .32 ACP Pistol, AKA Welrod

    .32 ACP Pistol, Welrod

    .32 ACP Pistol, also known as a Welrod.

     

     

     

    This .32 ACP pistol, known as a Welrod, was used by OSS operators and resistance forces behind enemy lines during World War 2. When fired the barrel slows the release of high pressure gases and quiets  the weapon.

    The Welrod was issued to OSS and Jedburg teams as an assassination weapon/covert weapon for missions in Nazi-occupied Europe in WWII.

It is located in Historic Downtown Fayetteville on the corner of Bragg Boulevard and Hay Street, adjacent to the city’s Freedom Memorial Park and the recently built North Carolina Veteran’s Park. The main gallery is designed as a self-guiding tour, in chronological order, through the history of the airborne and special operations soldiers, from 1940 to the present. The temporary gallery changes throughout the year and displays a myriad of exhibits pertaining to the United States Army, airborne and special operation units through their history and conflicts from World War II to the present.
