Have You Thanked Our Heroes?

FaceBook  Twitter

In preparation for next month’s Veterans Day (Nov. 11), we have begun compiling a list of our Alpha Eta Chapter servicemen and veterans along with their stories. We have only scratched the surface. We need your help to build our list, tell the stories and pay tribute to these men who have excelled with honor.

Please review the list below and leave your comments in the box at the bottom. Help us tell the stories and feel free to leave your notes of gratitude to these brothers willing to sacrifice for the protection of our freedoms. If you have longer stories and photos to send, you can send them to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or submit them here.

W. Patrick Teichgraeber ‘88
Weapons Co. Cmdr., 1st BN/7th Marine
In his alumni update in 2003, Brother Teichgraeber had this to say: “I was promoted to major in May 2002. After a year of nonstop travel with a battalion in the Marine Corps, I was diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gerhig’s disease.” He was mentioned in an article by Icon Clast news about Lou Gehrig’s Disease, including its effect on veterans.
