The Special Exhibit through November honors Prisoners of War.  The exhibit features many personal items of POWs of the Vietnam War including Major Ray Schrump held for 1,727 days between 1968 and 1973, First Lieutenant Nick Rowe held for 5 years until his escape in 1968, and Sergeant First Class Kenneth Roraback held from 1963 until 1965 when he was reported to have been executed.  Also featured in the exhibit is an American flag presented to Captain John Singlaub and sewed by POWs of the Japanese during WWII.  We invite visitors to join us in remembering and honoring all American service members who were Prisoners of War and the many who remain Missing in Action.

The Airborne & Special Operations Museum Foundation supports the museum with marketing, advertising and financial support for its programs and exhibits.

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.
