AAFM Art Projects
The first AAFM Art Project, a six- by twelve-foot glass mosaic by Denver artist Darrell Anderson, was unveiled and dedicated at Headquarters, Air Force Space Command on 9 November 2004. The mosaic hangs in the atrium where special ceremonies and "balcony calls" are conducted, and was dedicated to "the men and women involved in operating, maintaining and supporting Air Force missile and space systems in the past, present and future."Signed and numbered prints are available for purchase
First Minuteman on Alert: Cuban Missile Crisis
At the AAFM National Meeting in Great Falls, MT, AAFM donated a painting by artist Warren Neary of Launch Facility A-06 to the 341st Missile Wing to commemorate this important event.
Legacy of Deterrence
In October 2014 during the AAFM National Meeting at Barksdale AFB LA, AAFM presented a painting by AAFM Board Member CMSgt (Ret) Joe Andrew to the Commander, Air Force Global Strike Command.
The painting is now displayed in the headquarters.
In September 2015, 125 AAFM members and guests, along with over 100 attendees at a reunion of the Black Hills Bandits from the 44 SMW/MW, gathered in Rapid City to preview the new Visitors Center at the Minuteman Missile National Historic Site and for tours of the Launch Facility and Launch Control Facility.
AAFM presented a painting by AAFM Board Member CMSgt (Ret) Joe Andrew to the National Park Service for display at the Center. That evening, former Secretary of the Air Force and AAFM member Tom Reed spoke about "Cold Warriors I Have Known" at a dinner at the hotel in Rapid City.
Prints of the painting are available in our online store, and a full description of the painting by the artist is in the September 2015 AAFM Newsletter.
