Welcome Brave Glory

June 16, 2022 — FMA Foundation Vice President Frankie Velez of Praxis Engineering attended Fort McHenry’s dual celebration of Flag Day and US Army’s 247th birthday on June 14.

Before accepting a beautiful sculpture to be displayed at Fort Meade’s future Education and Resiliency Center at Kuhn Hall, Frankie was able to share more about how the renovation of the historic building will serve as a hub of information, programming and services to meet the unique needs of our Fort Meade community.

Donated to the Education and Resiliency Center by the Francis Scott Key Chapter of the Association of the United States Army – AUSA, the patriotic sculpture was made by Foundry Michelangelo and appropriately titled Brave Glory.

The ribbon cutting ceremony for the Education and Resiliency Center at Kuhn Hall is being scheduled around Veterans Day this year, a symbolic acknowledgment to one of the many audiences the new resource will serve. The Center is an Army-wide but not Army-exclusive initiative that focuses on the five areas of resiliency: physical, emotional, social, family and spiritual.
