Nulli Secundus... What an appropriate motto...
The Class of 1960 was the second class to graduate from the United States Air Force Academy.
And we are truly "second to none."  Time has passed, but we still want to stay in touch.

After considerable dedication and effort, J. T. has prepared a new feature for us that will permit access
to data that we consider non-public and which also provides directories for classmates and next of kin.
It requires sign-up by the user and qualification by the website.
(Click the blue tab above to access.)

A note from JT:  "Your website now has a restricted-access, "Classmates Only" section. It contains Directories giving the latest contact information for both Classmates and Next-of-Kin (available for viewing and/or download) plus a Private NOTAMS section for Class communications/information not intended for public viewing. Click on the blue tab above to access the Login Page. First-time users will be directed to request a password. Access will be granted only to Classmates, Next-of-Kin or other authorized users. Once you have received your password, subsequent visits to the Login Page will permit you to access the protected information."

We urge you to read Andi Biancur's letter to the Class regarding the AOG election and by-laws voting HERE.

From Bill Zersen:
The "Northwest Falcons" of the Class of 1960 are planning a mini-reunion for all classmates in Reno June 6-7, 2017.  They have just requested a block of rooms at the Peppermill Casino.  The planned activities are:  Cocktails on 6 Jun and a dinner on 7 June -  no other activities are planned.  Anyone that would like to join the "West Coast Gang" of the Class of 1960 please contact Bill Zersen at:  E: or T: 949-945-8630.
Update: As of 8 February, 28 persons plan to attend.The only planned activities for all of us are a cocktail and hors d'oeuvres the evening of the 6th and a dinner at ZOZO's Ristorante the evening of the 7th.  No meetings, etc.  I have also had input from people that will go to the Auto Museum or the Lake during the day of the 7th.  I know and plan to go to a great succhi (sp?) restaurant for lunch on the 7th.  Another interesting place to go to on the 7th is Old Town Truckee.

From Dick Sexton:
By now you have seen of the agreement between the AOG and the Endowment regarding a single CEO and the change to the AOG By-Laws to implement the agreement.  (See the AOG web site, the letter from the AOG Board and Vic Andrews.) [AOG Board letter
The agreement is not perfect and does not go as far as I would have liked, but it is a first step in the right direction.  (The perfect is often the enemy of the good enough.)  My concerns involve a single CEO responding to two very different Boards with different focuses and different governance and business models.  I am also concerned about the joint budgeting process.
Having said that, I still strongly support the agreement and would urge all of you to vote for the change to the By-Laws. There is still a lot of work to be done; but at least this is a start in what I see as a long process of coming up with a structure that will best support the Academy, the Cadets & the Graduate community.
