Army Navy Panorama Project Facebook
What is the history of the Army Navy Project?
A group of volunteers took a picture of the USMA Corps of Cadets after they had marched on the field at the 2006 Army Navy Game in Philadelphia, and turned it into a panorama. The picture was printed and offered to the West Point community "at cost" plus a donation to support our troops. Parents and friends also had the opportunity to provide additional donations as they ordered their prints which they graciously responded with even more support! For 2007, the project was expanded to include the Navy March-On. Almost $200,000 has been raised for our troops, with money spent to provide vans for severely injured service members and other projects such as the Returning Heroes Home in Texas which opened 1 December 2008.
What is the
2012 Army Navy Project?
The 2012 Army Navy project will offer a march-on print in 2 sizes for both Army *and* Navy as both academy parents want the prints and the opportunity to contribute to efforts to support our troops. The basic design will be unchanged and is shown below in the samples from 2011. For a glimpse at all the posters produced so far, go to: Historical Posters
We will provide links to the draft images of what you will order, suitable for gift giving during the holidays as an IOU for the real full-size poster to be shipped in first quarter, 2013. Each "sample" will print 5 x 7. Note - these are last year's image and will be updated to the 2012 version when the image is ready. There will be significant editing before the final posters are printed. Compare the gift certificates to the Final Version images.

How are the proceeds used?
100% of the proceeds from the project are used for the troops. Click here to see how YOU can make a difference.
The best way to convey what the Army Navy poster will mean to you is to read what it means to the parents who wrote these kind words after receiving their prints from the 2008 Game: Project feedback.
What are you editing in the panorama?
Our goal is to produce an image that draws your eyes to The Corps or The Brigade. We remove extraneous people and objects from the final production print. Click here for a "Behind the Scenes" look at creating the 2011 Army Panoramic Image.
Can you tell me more about the posters?
- The posters will not be dry mounted. The large poster will consist of an 18 inch by 24 inch sheet on heavyweight paper designed to drop into a standard picture frame. We are also offering a 10 inch by 13 inch print in the same format. The larger poster will be rolled and shipped via a mailing tube while the smaller print will ship flat, which means your order may arrive in two shipments. Many people commented that they were very pleasantly surprised when they received their prints, expecting a lower grade poster and yet receiving a high quality image for mounting. I guarantee your satisfaction 100% and have only refunded one purchase in 6 years.
- The price for poster or print includes a donation to support our troops. There will be quantity discounts shown on the order website. Usually if you buy more, you will save more, but there are break points where I have to use another mailing tube and incur more postage fees.
- All prints will be ordered at ONE time so it will be a limited production run. Do not wait to order because if we run out, we are "out" as we cannot easily order more at an affordable price. We do have a limited number of prior edition prints which can be ordered at the same time.
- The fulfillment of your order will most likely be in February as part of a "packing party" of volunteers and shipped via USPS. Once we close orders, then we make production checks and then print. I have to order mailing tubes based on the prints to be shipped, and then the fun begins.

May I donate to support the wounded veterans without ordering a poster?
