It saddens me to inform you that we lost one of our cadets yesterday. On Monday morning, Cadet Third Class Hunter Brown of Cadet Squadron 16, experienced a medical emergency while leaving his dormitory for class. Academy first responders were immediately called and attempted life saving measures, but they were ultimately unsuccessful. Hunter was a standout offensive lineman on the Falcon football team and was well-respected in his squadron. The entire Air Force Academy mourns his loss, and our hearts and condolences are with his family, his squadron, and all who were touched by this incredible young man.
