Gold Star Alumni

To Honor Those That ServedROTC, ROTC Alumni, Gold Star, Gold Star Alumni

In the Army, when a family loses a member in war, we refer to them as a "Gold Star Family."  The following Alumni died while serving in Vietnam.  We call them "Gold Star Alumni" because they are part of our family, they gave the ultimate sacrifice, and we will always remember them.
