The NEAOG formed in 1987 under the leadership of Mike Kelley ('70), Ross ('81) and Stacy McNutt ('88), and Bob McNamera ('66). The First Academy Night began in 1990 and Lt Gen Charlie Hamm (the then Academy Superintendent) was the first guest speaker. Since then, most every Superintendent, Commandant and Dean has visited the NEAOG, which has grown to be one of the most active Academy Alumni organizations. The NEAOG currently has over 75 active members.
In 2011 and 2012 the National AOG awarded the NEAOG the Distinguished Chapter Award.
