FOR EVERY HEART IN GRAY
SPICE UP YOUR WATCH PARTY we put together a few MESS HALL INSPIRED RECIPES with a special guest appearance by Queen.
MORE THAN 2,000 OLD GRADS have descended on West Point this weekend celebrate the REUNIONS of USMA 99, USMA 04, USMA 09 and USMA 14. We’ll be headed up next year as one half of the CADET team celebrate a reunion for the class of 2010. I imagine everyone will have a great time unless they are abruptly CALLED TO…CLEAR & STAGGER.
HOUR HYPE VIDEO as a proud member of the Century Club, I approve THIS VIDEO.
A SPECIAL COLLABORATION - OCTOBER 9, 2019
WITH HIS TENNESSEE DRAWL AND LIGHT BLONDE HAIR that is how Rufus Hyman’s HOWITZER ENTRY begins and on October 9th at Arlington Cemetery CPT Rufus J. Hyman USMA 1948 will be interned with full honors (Old Chapel, Caisson, Escort and military clergy). The family has authorized the sharing of this information and extends an invitation for all to attend. The family has indicated that it would mean a great deal to them for members of the Long Gray Line to be there. As of now, CADET VOL III contributors Rick French USMA 1986, Kate Burgess USMA 1995 and myself will be documenting this incredible ceremony and important moment in Long Gray Line history. If you are around, come grip hands. You can read more about Rufus Hyman HERE.
