ACA LEGACY Paver Program

The AMMO Chiefs Association Inc. has recently expanded their Legacy Memorial Paver Program to include all AMMO ranks.  

We call it

 AMMO ROAD

The price of a 4″ x 8″ legacy paver is $80. This is the discounted price per paver negotiated and received from the Airman Heritage Foundation (AHF).  If you order 2 or more pavers the price drops to $75 per paver. Orders placed through the Ammo Chiefs PayPal account include PayPal fees so 1 paver is $82.88 total.  However, our pavers are grouped together at the parade grounds at Lackland. AMMO is the first community to do so. 

Access to our reduced rate via the AHF is controlled by password and all orders are processed by the ACA Treasurer. This ensures any paver purchased through the ACA would receive the reduced rate and that it would be placed with our group (AMMO ROAD).  The focal point for all orders is the ACA Treasurer

Today there well over 100 memorial pavers in place and new paver orders being placed weekly.  Initially the pavers ordered were all AMMO CHIEFS or former members of the ACA.  In early 2020 we started adding all AMMO folks.  The program has been a success and that is why we want to open it to all of AMMO – Huh!

The pavers are placed in a pathway that encircles the parade grounds at Lackland AFB in San Antonio Texas. 

BACKGROUND

At the 2016 San Antonio Reunion ACA members toured The Airman Heritage Museum and later a recommendation was made to purchase a Lifetime Membership @ $300 and receive a free single Legacy Paver.

Rather than a single one time donation via Lifetime membership, another proposal was made to create a new ACA tradition to perpetuate the memory of deceased ACA Ammo Chiefs.

The pavers are placed in a pathway that will lead around the parade grounds at Lackland AFB in San Antonio Texas. 

The purchase of Legacy Pavers supports the ACA Constitution and honors AMMO’s heritage in a place highly visible to future Airmen and the public; it also supports the Airman Heritage Foundation long-term.  Win/Win.

Initially the BOD agreed to purchase a Legacy Paver for all deceased ACA Ammo Chiefs then added all deceased ACA Members.   Funding for all other previous Ammo Chiefs was funded by donations, most by ACA members.  Several Chiefs have ordered their own.   Now it’s open to all of AMMO.   

Installed AMMO Heritage Pavers are shown below:

The Program was adopted by the ACA BOD in mid-2017 and started shortly after.  

The first batch was ordered in Nov 2017 with the first 44 being installed in the ground on May of 2019. They are installed in front of the B-17 aircraft known as “Heaven’s Above” which is right next to the Medal of Honor Monument.

B-17 A/C known as “Heaven’s Above”

As you can see from the pictures the ADA compliant path will be completed with blank pavers and as pavers are purchased the blanks will be removed and replaced with Legacy Pavers. Generally, this is how the entire program works.  It is my understanding that there is room for upwards of 1,000 pavers in our  area.

You can see the area on a google map below.

ORDERING

All pavers will be placed as ordered there can be no reserved spaces or special grouping.   Orders would remain “First in – First out”.  Order your own, one for a mentor you respected while on duty, a friend or a spouse.  If you place an order and we find it is a duplicate we will let you know.     

We would reserve the right to ensure any wording is in accordance with the AHF guidelines and our requirement that the paver have some wording related to AMMO. 

There are 3 lines of text limited to 14 characters per line including spaces.  Acceptable entries might read AMMO, RANK, NAME, IYAAYAS, KYPD, AMMO Wife, AMMO SPOUSE, etc.  Something easily identifiable as AMMO related. 

The AHF recently updated options to include certain symbols when ordering a paver. Unfortunately the AMMO “Pisspot” symbol and other functional symbols are not approved. Currently symbols allowed on Legacy Paver are:

Air Force – Army – Coast Guard – Cross – Dog – Flag – Heart – Islam – Jewish – Marines – Navy – Paw – Space Force – Star

The focal point for all orders is the ACA Treasurer.
