Schriever Portrait Unveiled

Air Force officials unveiled a portrait of the late Gen. Bernard Schriever, considered father of USAF’s space and ICBM programs, July 8 at the Pentagon. “[General Schriever] brought us where we are today: preeminent in space,” Gen. Duncan McNabb, vice chief of staff, said during the unveiling ceremony also attended by Schriever’s widow, Joni James, as well as Acting Air Force Secretary Michael Donley and CMSAF Rodney McKinley. Artist Thomas Segars drew the portrait, while Lori Dawson created the portrait display, which will be a permanent fixture in corridor 8 of the Pentagon next to a larger pictorial display highlighting Schriever’s career.
