Andover and the Military
In the spring of 2011, a group of Alumni Council members launched an initiative called “Andover and the Military” as a way to recognize Phillips Academy men and women who have served in the U.S. military, to reconnect them with the broader Andover community, and to encourage discussions among students, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends of the Academy about the military, its history, and its connections to the school.
Andover and its graduates have a long, rich tradition of military service. We hope that this effort will start the conversation, and encourage alumni to share their experiences with each other and with the larger Andover community.
Veterans Day 2016
In order to ensure the legacy of the work of this initiative, Andover has agreed to set up a fund called the Andover and the Military Fund, "to honor Andover’s military heritage, and to promote commitment to non sibi through military service." The current use money will provide for the maintenance of on-campus veterans memorials, the hosting of speakers and dinners focused on Andover’s military heritage and service, and other associated activities. We invite you to participate in this effort.
Thank you for visiting Andover and the Military. We welcome questions as well as any feedback. If you want to get involved and help us improve the Andover and the Military project please contact Andover and the Military.
