This is a three phased operation (acquire, secure, and memorialize) and the intent is for it to be planned and executed simultaneously using four lines of effort (artifact, fundraising, building, technology), with a local “strike force” serving as the reserve for immediate response to support all four LOEs/committees. The endstate is achieved when all requested memorabilia is owned and managed by the WMA Alumni Association, secured in a Muster and display worthy location, and properly financed for long-term memorialization.
- Phase 1 (Acquire): This phase began on April 7, 2017 and ends when all historically significant artifacts are exclusively owned by the WMA Alumni Association.
- Phase 2 (Secure): This phase begins when the WMA Alumni Association begins acquiring memorabilia and ends when it has been stored in a secure location controlled by the WMA Alumni Association.
- Phase 3 (Memorialize): This phase begins when the WMA Alumni Association establishes a permanent, physical location to properly archive and display memorabilia.
