The White Sands Missile Range Hall of Fame was founded in 1980 by Major General Duard D. Ball to recognize Missile Range civilian, military, and contractor personnel for outstanding contributions made during their tenure at WSMR.
Members of the White Sands Missile Range Hall of Fame are people who have, over the years, made significant contributions to the success of the mission of White Sands Proving Ground/White Sands Missile Range and/or made significant contributions to the advancement of technology in furtherance of the capability of the Missile Range.
Induction into the Hall of Fame is the highest honor White Sands can bestow on one of its own.
Hall of Fame honorees are usually inducted during the summer months, often around the 09 July anniversary of the founding of the Missile Range.
Inductees receive a medal and a certificate. In 2006, each honoree received an American flag that was flown in front of the Missile Range Headquarters Building. The flag presentation is now part of the ceremony as well.
