Lance P. Sijan Foundation

Captain Lance P. Sijan was the first and only Air Force Academy graduate to receive the Medal of Honor, awarded posthumously in 1976.  Lance received the military’s highest honor for his extraordinary courage, service and sacrifice as a Prisoner of War in Vietnam.  The soldier that Lance became was based on the person that he always was – an artist, an athlete, a leader, a mentor and a friend.

The Lance P. Sijan Foundation was born not only to honor Lance’s legacy but to equally encourage and celebrate the values that made him a hero. Our mission is to recognize, honor, encourage and inspire leadership across disciplines with an emphasis on education and youth.

Please visit our website for more information on the Foundation.

Thank you for your generous contribution in keeping Lance’s legacy alive!
