AWARDS

Awards / Hall of Fame
The "Army Aviation Hall of Fame" is located in the Army Aviation museum at Ft Rucker, AL and is an integral part of the Museum.  The "Hall" is presently composed of a mix of individual portraits of some of the early inductees that were painted by three artists, and full color photographs of the remaining Inductees.  in 1991, the AAAA's National Executive board approved the Museum Curator's request to provide only full color photos of the 1992 and subsequent year Inductees.

The first Hall of Fame induction in 1974 was held in front of the old Museum and was followed by an evening banquet at which the Inductees were the guests of honor.  The Recreation Center at Ft. Rucker was the site of the 1975, 1976 and 1977 Inductions.  in 1980 and 1983, the installation ceremonies were held at the Hall of Fame Induction Luncheon held at the AAAA Annual Conventions in Atlanta, GA.  The 1986 Induction Ceremonies were held at Ft Rucker, AL.  Since 1989, the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremonies have been held in conjunction with the AAAA Annual Conventions.  In addition, three aviation soldiers who received the Congressional Medal of Honor were inducted at special ceremonies in the spring of 1990 during the dedication of the current Army Aviation Museum.
