Former West Point leader joins Museum of American Armor board

Former Deputy Commandant of the United States Military Academy at West Point Jason Halloren is the newest trustee named to the board of the Museum of American Armor in Old Bethpage.

Halloren, a Commack resident, oversaw the character and leadership development training of over 4,400 cadets at West Point.

“Mr. Halloren’s extraordinary military credentials, coupled with his passion for preserving our nation’s heritage, make him an important part of the Armor Museum’s future,” Lawrence Kadish, president and founder of the museum, said in a written statement.

Before entering his role as deputy commandant at West Point, Halloren was chief executive officer (brigade commander), 5th ROTC Brigade, United States Army Cadet Command (USACC) at Fort Sam Houston, Texas.

“We are honored and fortunate to have Jason join the Armor Museum’s board,” Michael D. Sapraicone, the Armor Museum’s senior trustee, said in the statement. “He brings a wealth of experience in many of the key operational aspects of our institution as well as his recognition that, at the end of the day, we are an important educational destination for thousands of students across the region.”

The Museum of American Armor, inside Nassau County’s Old Bethpage Village Restoration, maintains a collection of about 50 operational armor vehicles on display at its 25,000 square-foot facility, located at 1303 Round Swamp Road in Old Bethpage.

“The Museum of American Armor is a national treasure,” Halloren said in the statement. “Its collection of operational armor breathes life into every history lesson that instructs visitors on the courage, sacrifice, and valor of those who have worn our nation’s military uniform. I am truly honored to be welcomed to its board and to provide whatever assistance I can to ensure its future remains as vibrant and innovative as the past ten years since it first opened its doors.”
