Supporting the Mission


Veteran and military-connected students embody the spirit of service and leadership that is central to the Oregon State University community. Because veterans and military-connected students are part of what makes OSU so special, Beavers everywhere are joining together to support their academic and lifelong success. Together, donors to this initiative will support these students in their transition to university life, help bridge financial gaps, enhance opportunities for peer mentoring and more.

    Sgt Ball was the ball turret gunner on the B-17F #42-5878 "Yankee Eagle" in the 533rd bomber squadron, 381st bombardment group, 8th Air Force operating in Germany. During their 59th mission in Europe, aiming to destroy the German aircraft factories in Oschersleben, Germany the plane was downed. The Yankee Eagle was rammed by an FW-190 between the #1 and #2 engines. The planes exploded, with the Yankee eagle loosing a wing and being engulfed in flames.
