Tributes & Stories

To honor the lives of our alumni, we have created many ways to tell their stories, honor their memory and remember their service and sacrifices through the years. We offer detailed instructions on how to find and submit an obituary to Shipmate magazine as well as instructions on visiting the cemetery and columbarium on the Yard.

We hold dear the memories of the 14 alumni who were killed on September 11, 2001 in the Twin Towers and the Pentagon. Since that horrific day, many more have been killed in combat in the name of fighting terrorism and protecting our country. On the 15th Anniversary of 9-11 we paid tribute to all of them through the memories and photographs of their classmates and families.

Over the years we have also collected alumni Sea Stories from world wars to long tours. They span many decades and are the stories of service on good days and bad that our alumni have in common, no matter what their class year may be. The service of our graduates is preserved in these memories.
