PSYOP’s 100th Anniversary

On January 23, 1918, Captain Heber Blankehorn reported for duty as the first officer-in-charge of the newly-formed “Psychologic Subsection” of the Military Intelligence Branch of the U.S. Army’s General Staff. This marks the beginning of what we now know as U.S. Army Psychological Operations (PSYOP).

This year, the PRA will be sponsoring, supporting, and promoting events to commemorate the 100th anniversary of PSYOP. Click on the link below to view the actual letter of commendation, from Major Charles Mason to Captain Blankenhorn.
