Coming Soon – The Knowlton Statue

This summer, MICA will introduce a statue of MI Corps Hero, LTC Thomas Knowlton. As shown below, this item will be available for sale at the MICA Store online and in the MI Museum. “Having a statue to represent the historic legacy of Thomas Knowlton with his deep ties to the MI and Ranger communities has been a long-time goal,” MICA President Chuck Atkins said recently. MICA has worked diligently with local entrepreneur, Tony Fennell, to make this product a reality.

The Knowlton Statue will be available as an appropriate gift for farewells, retirements, and other occasions to recognize the professional excellence and devotion to duty of today’s Soldiers as embodied in the Commander of the US Army’s first unit dedicated to hazardous Intelligence and Reconnaissance functions – Knowlton’s Rangers. In 1776, General George Washington established this organization and during one of its first active operations, LTC Thomas Knowlton was killed in action leading his Regiment in combat against British Army forces during the Battle of Harlem Heights. 

A Message from your MICA President

Your MICA team continues to provide outstanding support to our Military Intelligence soldiers and Civilians.  In the past several months, MICA hosted the annual Ft Huachuca BAll, sponsored an annual Scholarship fund raising event and provided scholarship support to  deserving Military Intelligence Soldiers and their dependents.  The FT Huachuca Ball was a resounding success. More than 800 soldiers and their guests attended the event honoring military intelligence history at FT Huachuca with a vision of continued success for the future. It was a fantastic event with everyone having a joyous time.  A special thanks to the MICA Ball Planning team led by Mike Roberts, MICA National Vice President.  In the last five years, MICA provided over $100,000.00 in scholarship funding to deserving Military Intelligence soldiers and their dependents.  Again this year, 25 new college students received assistance pursuing education goals and future professional challenges.  We honor these recipients in this issue of the Vanguard.  One student received a $750 Scholarship for donations provided to honor the late MG Johnston.  Join me in thanking our corporate sponsors and donors for their continued support of our Military Intelligence Professionals. 
Your MICA Professional association is still on a successful path to preserve Military Intelligence History, educating leaders, honor professionals, share knowledge and provide a respected awards program.  In 2022 thus far, MICA total membership increased by 2%, against a goal of 10% annual growth rate.  We can still get there. Merchandise sales are up and you should be looking for specials with reduced prices in the coming months. We see an increase from last year in leaders recognizing outstanding performance through the MICA award programs. Please let us know if the merchandise we offer is meeting your expectations. 
As an old soldier reflecting on a life of service to this great Nation, I find the one thing that is enduring other than the memories of serving with so many great soldiers, is the days that I was honored to take the  Oath of enlistment and the Oath of office. I go back from time to time and read the words and find that I still “bear true faith and allegiance to the same”. I have deep respect and honor for today’s soldiers living the Warrior life. 
Thanks for supporting your Military Intelligence Professional Association.
