It's an exciting time for Alumni

Walt Lord
Walt Lord Chairman of the Board



To fill the void created when the VFMA&C Alumni AABOD was disbanded by creating an independent, non-profit alumni- and family-led organization that is dedicated to:

  • Raising funds for programs that support the continued development of cadets as citizen leaders above and beyond what the school is responsible for providing
  • Preserving the deep history and spirit of the Forge by providing opportunities for alumni to connect, network, and engage in transparent, welcoming, and inclusive environments

Core Principles

  • Be Respectful: We will remain positive and be mindful of our words and actions
  • Be Transparent: We will be clear with our intentions and open in our communications
  • Be Responsible: We will operate with integrity and hold ourselves accountable to good governance practices

    Thank you General Lord and all those who created this Medenbach Foundation. You can not begin to imagine the overwhelming effect VFMA, Colonel D Keith Feltham and the Band had on my life, nor can you imagine the exceedingly high level of hope and comfort I felt when you were appointed superintendant of VFMA.
