Operation HALYARD

July 4 @ 10:00 am - November 13 @ 4:00 pm

Running concurrently with The Bielski Brothers exhibit, this unique exhibition highlights the heroic mission to rescue downed U.S. airmen from Nazi occupied Serbia during the waning months of World War II.

Operation HALYARD was the largest and most successful rescue mission of American aircrews in our nation’s history. Learn how between August through December 1944, a three-man OSS team, along with Serbian anti-fascist/anti-communist partisans, known as “Chetniks,” and the 1st Air Crew Rescue Unit of the U.S.15th Air Force, airlifted more than 500 U.S. airman out of Serbia.

Operation HALYARD: The Greatest Rescue Mission of World War II is on loan from the Halyard Mission Foundation and is on display in the ASOM’s lobby from July 4, 2022, through November 13, 2022.
