tabMaxwell-Gunter Heritage
Gathering of Eagles is an annual event hosted by The Air University's Air Command and Staff College to honor men and women who have made significant contributions to air, space and cyberspace power.  This year's GOE will be June 3-5. 

According to the Dispatch, the first GOE, then known as "Great Moments in Aviation History," was held June 4, 1982 at the Montgomery Civic Center alongside ACSC's Graduation ceremony. 

The careers of 14 aviation pioneers were highlighted ranging from World War I to the space age.  Some of the pioneers highlighted during the event were Lt. Col. George Vaughn, fourth ranking living ace in World War I at the time, Lt. Gen. Jimmy Doolittle, pioneer from World War I and World War II who led the air raids on Tokyo from aircraft carriers and Brig. Gen. Charles Yeager, the first man to break the sound barrier.

The first few "Great Moments in Aviation History" events were run by a small group of faculty and students with Lt. Col. Dave McFarland managing the first few.  Throughout the years the event grew into the large GOE event we know today and is managed by a larger committee of faculty and students and supported by the ACSC GOE Foundation.
