Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Preserve the history of the U.S. Army Warrant Officer from inception on July 9, 1918 in the Army Mine Planter Service of the Coast Artillery Corps through the present.
1. The history is presented, maintained, and updated regularly both online and in print.
2. Two comprehensive histories have been published, the first entitled "U.S. Army Warrant Officers" was written by Don Hess, CW4 U.S. Army Retired, then Executive Vice President of the U.S. Army Warrant Officers Association (USAWOA). It was published in 1996 by Turner Publishing Company. and the second entitled "WARRANT - The Legacy of Leadership as a Warrant Officer" was written by David P. Welsh, CW5 U.S. Army Retired,President of the then Warrant Officers Heritage Foundation(WOHF) that was also published by Turner Publishing Company in 2006. A third History Book is planned covering the 100 Years of Warrant Officer Service to the U.S. Army and the Nation.
3. Maintain a frequently updated online Warrant Officer History that resides at https://warrantofficerhistory.org.
4. Obtain approval from the Fort Monroe Authority for the Foundation to design, purchase, and place a granite memorial bench at the Casemate Museum on Fort Monroe (VA). The bench would be engraved to commemorate the July 9, 1918 establishment of the Army Warrant Officer Corps at Fort Monroe.
5. Design, fund, and construct a 100th Warrant Officer Birthday Historical Exhibit hopefully to be displayed a the planned National Museum of the U,S, Army.
6. Participate in a Joint Committee with USAWOA members to plan and execute activities and events commemorating the 100th Birthday of the Army Warrant Officer in 2018.

1. Raise sufficient funds to accomplish the listed goals.
2. Since the Army has turned over Fort Monroe and the Casemate Museum to the Commonwealth of Virginia "Fort Monroe Authority," obtain approval from the Authority to install a Memorial Bench at the Museum to commemorate the establishment of the Army Warrant Officer Corps at Fort Monroe.
3. Since the National Museum of the U.S. Army is still in the planning stage and ground not yet broken, the Foundation is seeking an alternative site for placement of the 100th Year Birthday Historical Exhibit.
4. The Joint Commemoration Committee (USAWOA & WOHF) is endeavoring to reach Army Warrant Officers worldwide to sponsor events to celebrate the 100th Birthday of the Cohort.

Fund raising continues and thanks to the support and generosity of the Members, Chapters, and Regions of the U.S. Army Warrant Officers Association and other donors/supporters we have every reason to believe that we will be able to accomplish all our goals.
