Thank you for your membership and supporting our programs!
With the summer completed and our WebGuy coverage going back to its academic year routine, we want to remind you of the bigger picture of why being a part of the Association of Graduates is more than WebGuy - Our MEMBERS make it all happen!
Our Vision: The Association of Graduates (AOG) aspires to be the primary organization of United States Air Force Academy (USAFA) graduates and friends dedicated to supporting the Academy mission of building leaders of character for the Air Force and the nation, and aspires to provide service and support for graduates and cadets.
Our Mission: To pursue our vision and to serve and support the United States of America, the United States Air Force, the United States Air Force Academy and the graduate community by:
- Working in partnership with the Academy to produce and foster graduates with an enduring commitment to integrity, excellence and service to country.
- Providing leadership, communication, and support to all Academy graduates and friends of the Academy, and promoting camaraderie among them.
- Promoting the heritage of the Academy, our common traditions, and the accomplishments of our graduates.
