Author's Corner Write-Up


Air Force Academy graduates have been active in writing books and getting them published.  Below is a list of books written by graduates.  If your book is not listed, please let us know by contacting at the AOG. They are listed in alphabetical order by the graduates' last name.

Above the general list is a special group of graduate authors who have decided to "give back" to the Academy by sending a portion of each book sale to the AOG.  Called our Authors Supporting AOG, we thank Glenn Coleman, 64, our founding "Supporting Author" for coming up with this unique way to give back.
