Our History

The National Military Intelligence Foundation (NMIF) was organized to advance public awareness of the roles and contributions intelligence professionals make to society, military intelligence organizations, disciplines, and enhancements in analytical methods, and techniques.  Building on a long history of success as the National Military Intelligence Association, which was established in 1974, NMIF came to corporate life as an IRS Code 501(c)(3) public charity on August 7, 2007.
