Honoring America’s Heroes

Honor the Past – Give A Gift To The Future

For nearly twenty years, The Airborne & Special Operations Museum has told the stories of those who have fought valiantly to protect the liberty we hold most dear. The Museum has preserved and honored the legendary feats of our Airborne and Special Operations Soldiers.

Our heroes have stormed the beaches of Normandy, jumped into Korea, battled in the jungles of Vietnam, and are still fighting in the sands of Afghanistan, Syria and around the world. These brave men and women in uniform have fought selflessly, protecting and defending our national security and freedom. Now, it is our turn to protect their legacy.

Both public and private funding has been vital to the Museum, and we are thankful for your continuous support. However, we recognize our Nation’s enemies and battles have changed over the years, along with advancing technology and the learning mediums of a younger generation. It is crucial we continue to connect our past to the present, which is why The Airborne & Special  Operations Museum will answer the Call of Duty to Honor America’s Heroes.

With a strong vision for the future, The Airborne & Special Operations Museum Foundation has launched a vital mission to raise $8.5 million to both transform and update the Museum. Your support will help create new learning opportunities, expand and enrich the last eighty years of history which include WWII through The War on Terror, and immerse visitors in our stories through interactive technology and exhibits.

Today, you can honor the past by giving a gift to the future. You can ensure the heroism of those who have protected and defended our nation will receive the gratitude and respect they so greatly deserve.

On behalf of the Campaign and our Honorary Chairman, General (R) Raymond Odierno, 38th Chief of Staff of the Army, we thank you for your consideration and generous support of The Airborne & Special Operations Museum’s mission to Honor America’s Heroes.

Will You Answer The Call?

It is vital that the Airborne and Special Operations Museum Foundation together with friends across North Carolina and nationwide, start the movement to breathe new life into our history’s stories, to share the impact of today’s warriors in defense of freedom, and to excite new generations to answer the call to serve our country.

The U.S. Army Airborne and Special Operations Museum in Fayetteville, North Carolina, is a national treasure showcasing education, the call of duty, and the unwavering sacrifice made by the Army’s elite Airborne and Special Operations soldiers worldwide. They are truly America’s Heroes.

The Museum opened in 2000; its purpose is to highlight the legendary feats of our nation’s elite troops who are steadfast in answering the call wherever needed.

Remembering their legacy of bravery, commitment, and the ultimate sacrifice allows us to learn from their stories while demonstrating honor and respect for those who answered the Call of Duty.

By telling their story, we connect the past and the present to the future. We awaken future generations to their own potential.

The world has changed since the Museum opened. An entire generation has passed by since the Twin Towers fell and the Global War on Terrorism began.

There is Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and battle lines worldwide. The Army’s Airborne and Special Operations soldiers are there, making the difference in our world today. Now it’s time to tell their story.
