Thank You for Your Service


St. Ignatius of Loyola asked us to give without counting the cost. No one demonstrates that selflessness more than our alumni who have served or are serving in the armed forces — some have made the ultimate sacrifice.

William Henry Brophy, whose wife founded Brophy in his honor, served in World War I as a Major in logistics. His son, Frank Cullen Brophy, also served in World War I, as a Lieutenant in field artillery. Grandson, William Henry Brophy II, was a P-47 fighter pilot in World War II. Great-grandson, John T. McChesney '68, served in the Army's 101st Airborne Battalion and died in combat in Vietnam. Great-grandson, Matthew Brophy '77, graduated from the University of Arizona with an ROTC commission in '81 and became an Army Special Forces Captain, serving from 1981-88. He served in Panama as Detachment Commander in the 3rd Battalion's 7th Special Forces Group and also did a tour in El Salvador.

Thank you to all of our military Men for Others. We pledge to keep our veterans and active-duty service members in our prayers, and to honor the memory of those who are no longer with us. If you have not sent us your information yet, submit it via this form or email Director of Communications Kathy Mabry. Please note that, in some cases, alumni have submitted information on behalf of classmates. If you see errors or can supply missing information, please contact Kathy.
