Blue and Gold Officers

In support of our Chapter aims, we support the USNA Blue and Gold Officer (BGO) program. There about 40 BGOs in the areas surrounding the St. Louis metro, each of which is responsible for a high school or group of schools and about half of these BGOs are USNA alumni. Our Chapter is extremely fortunate to have as a member, the BGO Coordinator for Eastern Missouri and Southern Illinois, Mike Carnes ('74).

Students that are interested in a future at the United States Naval Academy may direct their questions directly to him:

    Michael A. Carnes

Charitable Donations

The Board reviews the needs of veteran support organizations throughout the Greater St. Louis Area and when possible will allocate funds or direct resources towards meeting the needs of a worthy organization. These contributions must be approved by the Board before they are distributed.
