The U.S. Department of State’s Office of Art in Embassies (AIE) is pleased to announce the “Serving Abroad…Through Their Eyes” photography exhibition to be on view in Fairchild Hall’s Permanent Professors Art Gallery at the U.S. Air Force Academy until January 24, 2014.

In recognition of AIE’s 50th anniversary, the U.S. Department of State collaborated with the U.S. Department of Defense on a photography project which features photographs taken by active military, Foreign Service, and Civil Service personnel while serving abroad. This project depicts images of friendship, places, faces, loss, and triumph, providing a glimpse into the complex, diverse, and courageous work performed by America’s heroes throughout the world.
