The Military Intelligence Corps was activated on July 1, 1987 in accordance with the United States Army Regimental System. One year later, on July 1, 1988, the Military Intelligence Corps Hall of Fame was formally established. Its purpose is to honor those soldiers and civilians whose exceptional performances have made special contributions to the Military Intelligence profession.
To date, including the Class of 2023, 288 Military Intelligence professionals have been selected for membership in the MI Corps Hall of Fame. Each year, the selection process is deliberate and thorough. Each nomination is judged by a board of active and retired senior officers, warrant officers, noncommissioned officers, and professional civilians. The board's recommendations are presented to the chief of the corps who makes the final selection. The inductees are then added to the Hall of Fame display, located in Alvarado Hall, the headquarters of the U.S. Army Intelligence Center of Excellence, at Fort Huachuca as a lasting symbol of their legacy within the MI Corps.
Through the tabs on the top of this page, you will find information pertaining to past and current Hall of Fame activities; photographs, interviews and biographies of the MI Corps Hall of Fame inductees; and information about Distinguished Members of the Corps, Honorary Officers, and Honorary Members of the Corps. The most recent nomination procedures for the Hall of Fame are also provided.
