The Academy mourns the loss of Cadet 3rd Class Hunter Brown, 21, of Lake Charles, Louisiana. Brown experienced a medical emergency while leaving his dormitory for class on Monday morning. Academy first responders were immediately called and attempted life saving measures which were ultimately unsuccessful.
“Hunter was a standout offensive lineman on the Falcon football team and was well-respected in his squadron,” said Lt. Gen. Richard M. Clark. “The entire U.S. 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.”
Brown was assigned to Cadet Squadron 16 and was pursuing a major in management, a minor in French, and had completed back-to-back winning seasons in 2021 and 2022 with Falcon football. Brown graduated from the U.S. Air Force Academy Preparatory School in May 2021.
Agents of the Air Force Office of Special Investigations and the El Paso Sheriff’s Office initially secured the response area and are conducting an investigation, standard protocol for any military on-base death.
