From the October 1981 issue of Shipmate:

Midn. 1/c Alan Gene Carmack USN was killed in an aircraft accident near the eastern end of the Bay Bridge of the Chesapeake Bay on 31 July 1981. Midn. Carmack was participating in a flight training program open to the First Class Midshipmen which provides instruction to midshipmen under an aviation orientation program. His civilian instructor was also killed in the accident.

A memorial service was held at Mitscher Hall on the evening of 6 August, and a further service was planned after the return of the Brigade to the Naval Academy in late August. Interment took place in Noble, Oklahoma.

A native of Oklahoma, Midn. Carmack was manager of the varsity wrestling team at the Academy. He had been a member of the Drum and Bugle Corps, was an active participant in the Pep Band, and had qualified as a parachutist. Well liked by his fellow midshipmen, and his loss to the Twelfth Company will be seriously felt.

He is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur G. Carmack of Moore OK 73160, and a sister. Mr. Carmack is retired from the U.S. Air Force.
