The Office of Strategic Services (OSS) Society honors the historic accomplishments of the OSS during World War II, the first organized effort by the United States to implement a centralized system of strategic intelligence and the predecessor to the Central Intelligence Agency and the U.S. Special Operations Command, including the US Navy SEALs and the Green Berets. It educates the American public regarding the continuing importance of strategic intelligence and special operations to the preservation of freedom. Its predecessor organization, the Veterans of OSS, was founded in 1947. In 1997, it became The OSS Society.

The OSS Society led a successful effort to have a Congressional Gold Medal awarded to the OSS. The OSS Congressional Gold Medal Act was signed into law on December 14, 2016, and was presented at a ceremony on Capitol Hill. It led another successful effort to have the OSS and original CIA headquarters on Navy Hill in Washington, D.C., added to the National Register of Historic Places. It hosts the William J. Donovan Award® Dinner, the preeminent annual gathering of the US intelligence and special operations communities. The OSS Society has established OSS memorials throughout the United States and in Europe. It publishes The OSS Society Journal. The OSS Society is planning to build the National Museum of Intelligence and Special Operations® that will honor Americans who serve at the “tip of the spear” and inspire future generations to serve their country. The OSS spearhead continues to point the way forward.
