Letter to the editor

Each issue I always take special notice of the alumni who have most recently passed. The vast majority of the older alumni served their country during times of conflict and went on to complete long careers, often with only one or two companies. Although I am saddened by the passing of a great generation of men and women, I greatly appreciate being reminded of the service and sacrifices those before us made. Many of these same folks are those that helped grow our university to what it is today.
