What has being a member of the West Point class of 1969 meant to me? My moral compass continues to be aligned with The Cadet Prayer.
The friendships from cadet days and subsequently through assignments, mini-reunions and other activities and experiences have been rich and treasured. Cycling, skiing, safaris, as well as the cruises, a cup of coffee or wine with classmates has led me to appreciate the depth and breadth of shared life experiences with our class family. When I stood at Trophy Point on July 1, 1965 and subsequently at parades and in the reviewing stand, the memories leave me humbled and thankful for being a part of such a great class and institution.
