Air Force Public Affairs Hall of Fame

AFPAAA, in conjunction with SAF/PA, is establishing an Air Force Public Affairs Hall of Fame to recognize and honor those who have made significant and lasting contributions to the creation, growth and operation of the Air Force Public Affairs family of career fields, including the Information/Public Affairs, Band, Visual Information/Combat Camera and Broadcasting specialties.

Those eligible for Hall of Fame induction include former military and civil service members who have served in these Air Force Public Affairs specialties. Nominees must have distinguished themselves through significant and lasting contributions to the profession, history and traditions of Air Force Public Affairs.

Any member of AFPAAA, the Combat Camera Association, Air Force Musicians Association or the Air Force Broadcaster alumni group may nominate any living or deceased individual who meets the eligibility criteria.

To nominate someone for the Hall of Fame, complete the nomination form at this link and attach it to an email to the AFPAAA Hall of Fame Committee at hof@afpaaa.org not later than 1 December.

The Hall of Fame Committee, including representatives from the other alumni groups, will review the nominations and recommend a slate of inductees to the AFPAAA Board of Directors. The list of proposed Hall of Fame inductees will be shared with the SAF/PA Director for their input, prior to a final decision by the Board of Directors.

The members of the Hall of Fame nominating committee are:

The Hall of Fame will be featured as part of the SAF/PA heritage wall display now under construction at the Defense Information School (DINFOS) at Fort Meade, MD. A Hall of Fame page on this web site will include the photo of each Hall of Fame member and a summary of their career accomplishments.

The inaugural Hall of Fame class will be recognized at the annual AFPAAA membership meeting next October in Dayton, OH. If you need additional information or have any questions, contact Art Forster by email to the Hall of Fame Committee at hof@afpaaa.org, or by phone at (256) 690-9902.
