MEMORIAL AFFAIRS

The U.S. Naval Academy Alumni Association and Foundation aims to support family and friends mourning the loss of Naval Academy alumni. Available assistance and information includes advance planning, how to get the word out to classmates, preparing an obituary, choosing memorial tribute gifts and honoring those lost in the service of our country. We are here to help and appreciate any feedback you can provide about additional questions we can answer or information we can provide to better help our Naval Academy families navigate this process.

"THEY SHALL GROW NOT OLD, AS WE THAT ARE LEFT GROW OLD;
AGE SHALL NOT WEARY THEM, NOR THE YEARS CONDEMN.
AT THE GOING DOWN OF THE SUN AND IN THE MORNING, WE WILL REMEMBER THEM." 
- LAURENCE BINYON, 1914
