The Special Operations Command (SOCOM) is the proponent of Civil Affairs forces for the Joint Force. They have reached out to the CA Association (CAA) for photos depicting CA missions and operations from the last decade.
They are updating the murals displayed along the corridors of the Pentagon and the hallways of SOCOM HQ. The team leading this project have identified low representation from CA in past photo collages and are reaching out to fix the issue.
This is a perfect opportunity for the regiment to proudly display photos from across the CA enterprise into key places of influence.
A small team, mixed of AC/RC CA professionals will screen and send the top photos to SOCOM. Deadline is 15 October but send as soon as possible to ensure your photos get considered. Time is of the essence.
Email the highest resolution photo and brief citation of photo's context to CivilAffairsPhotos@gmail.com
Photos of Army or Joint Female CA or CST engagement operators are of particular interest now for a current project but send any photos showing CA in action. See below for examples:
