Welcome Warriors!

A Message from Jeff Tisor '85

It is my privilege to have been elected by the Alumni Board to be President of your Association, ANAAA. Our Association is led by an international, multigenerational group of Alumni that meet several times a year to develop policies, projects and programs for the benefit of The Academy, Alumni and the Academy’s community.

The main areas we are concentrating on as a Board are the following: Development Projects, Mentoring Programs, Alumni Outreach, Our History, and Tradition Preservation. All of the above are under the guidance of an Alumni Board Committee.

All Committees report back to the Alumni Board which is committed to working in partnership with the Academy’s Administration and Trustees to chart a path for our success as an Association. To that end, the Academy’s Development Department, which supports the Alumni Association, is making some changes within their roles and responsibilities to better serve the needs of the Alumni Community and to advance our shared goals.

Alumni Board Committees are open to any Alumnus that would like to participate. If you are interesting in becoming involved, please contact me by email. Additionally, after each meeting of the Alumni Board of Directors the minutes of the meetings and action items will be published via a link on the Alumni section of the Academy’s web pages.

During Alumni Weekend in May of each year a brief recap of your Associations activities will be presented and discussed at out Annual Meeting. In addition, at the same meeting an election of Directors for the Alumni Board will be held. There are openings every year for the Alumni Board and every Alumnus in good standing is encouraged to participate.

Our past is captured in our lifelong friendships and experiences. Gentlemen, the history and traditions of the Academy are ours to preserve and perpetuate.  

Please feel free to contact me or any of your Alumni
Directors and Class Agents with questions, or to “get involved”!
Warrior Pride,

Jeffrey Tisor, '85

Mentorship and Ambassador Programs

The Academy is launching three new programs to create Alumni connections and strengthen the Army-Navy Community. 

Thanks in advance for "paying it forward" by telling others your story, supporting a current Cadet as he applies to college, or showing him the ropes at your workplace.

College Mentor
Cadets at the Academy are working to determine their future paths, figuring out who they are and where they're headed. Often, the college experience is an important part of this development.
As a college mentor, you'll speak with and meet Cadets who are interested in your alma mater, giving them advice and helping them forge their path ahead. 
Career Mentor
The Career Mentor will help current Cadets and Academy Alumni learn about your industry or place of work. Our goal is to create a professional network, connecting Alumni to career opportunities and helping Cadets determine their areas of interest. 
If your company allows it, Cadets could shadow you on the job for a day or even have summer internships there.
Academy Ambassador

Will you tell others your story?
Academy Ambassadors will spread the word about the Academy experience to prospective families and contacts. Ambassadors will have the opportunity to connect with prospects and use their own personal networks to motivate others to explore Army Navy.
We all know that the Academy can be a turning point in the lives of young men, giving them the motivation and skill sets to succeed. Help others become well-educated young men of good character.

Questions? Please contact the Office of Alumni Affairs by email or at 760.547.5277.

A Message from LTC Roland Miraco '90

LTC Roland Miraco Army and Navy Academy Class of 1990

"Last week I received a phone call from MG Bartell. He is reaching out to ANA Alumni about the direction he is taking ANA. Overall it was a great phone call. He spoke about unity of effort across all aspects of ANA with a focus on the future.

After speaking to him, it is absolutely clear that he is putting the military back into ANA (as he should be) and that he is 100% committed to the Cadets, Staff and Faculty and the legacy which is ANA."
