The Saint Xavier University community mourns the loss of former student and U.S. Marine Aaron Ripperda.
Aaron was one of the seven Marines killed during a training accident in which a mortar round detonated inside the tube on March 18 at Hawthorne Army Depot in western Nevada. Originally from Highland, Ill., he attended SXU during the 2005-06 academic year.
Please keep Aaron and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
