Gone But Not Forgotten

Honoring fallen comrades is an important part of the AOG mission and we ask to be notified as soon as possible of the death of any graduate so that we can take appropriate actions. The AOG has learned of the following graduate or cadet deaths within the past 90 days. We have posted the information we have and will update this page as more information becomes available.

For best results, try searching by Last Name (e.g. Smith), Class Year (e.g. 1959), or Cadet Squadron (e.g. CS-01). More complex searches may not return desired results.
