NOAA Association of Commissioned Officers (ACO)


It is with a heavy heart that I share the news of the untimely death of Sarah Sharon Yeager, widow of retired Captain David W. Yeager.  Please take a moment to read her obituary and add a memory if you have one to share.  


A donation has been made on behalf of the ACO community to  St. Stephens Episcopal Church of Vestavia Hills, Alabama at the request of the family.
