Academy senior staff, graduates, cadets, members of the AOG Board of Directors, and staff gathered at the Academy cemetery May 11, 2007, for the long anticipated ribbon cutting and dedication of the USAFA Memorial Pavilion.

The celebration and cutting of the ribbon, by Lt. Gen. John Regni, '73, Chairman of the AOG board Ted Legasey, '67, President and CEO Jim Shaw, '67 and Gen. Ron Yates (Ret.), '60, marks the end of a long process for the building.

For many years graduates have been trying to build a place to honor fallen comrades and their families with dignity and respect.
In 1982 the project was identified as a priority by the Air Force Academy. Nearly 26 years later the project was made possible solely through private funding and donations totaling 4.5 million dollars, facilitated by the AOG.

The Memorial Pavilion will provide a place of dignity and respect for graveside services that can be held outdoors in a quiet, peaceful mountain setting, or inside, protected from Colorado's unpredictable extreme weather.
