Inscription.  

The Association of Graduates Memorial Pavilion was
made possible through the generosity of more than 11,000
graduates, friends and parents. The Pavilion honors all
Academy graduates for their unwavering service to the
United States of America.

We wish to recognize Ted and Trisha Legasey, USAFA '67,
for their extraordinarily generous donation. The Legaseys'
strong commitment made this Memorial Pavilion possible.
As lead donors, they requested the name of the Pavilion
pay tribute to the Association of Graduates, whose tireless
efforts turned the vision of this Pavilion into a reality that
benefits all graduates for all time.
