Award Winning Communications

Our communications staff is perhaps closest to the heartbeat of the organization. It is communication, after all, that helps facilitate many of our services to the outside community. We have many tools for accomplishing this task. In 2020, AOG communications won 21 CASE (Council for Advancement and Support of Education) awards for print, video and digital news achievements. In all, the Communications Department has received 100 awards for quality over the past seven years.

Checkpoints is published in March, June, September and December and is filled with pages of information about graduates, cadets and the Academy. It is the only magazine of its kind for the Academy and is mailed to all members of the AOG.

Beyond the printed page, Checkpoints Online includes bonus articles, featured videos and photo galleries.
