swords adorn the crest, representing the transition from cadet
to officer. The Class of 2007, being the first class to begin
that transition in wake of the events of September 11, 2001, has
their crest emblazoned with the motto: Always Remember, Never
Surrender. The crest invokes the memory of that day through
its focal point: the Twin Towers and the Pentagon. The North Tower
has, inscribed with its windows, the numbers 9 1 1, which serve
as both an identification of the date, and a call to state of
Eagle of the Class of 2007 answers the call by gripping the motto
with sharpened talons and displaying its colors on the underside
of its left wing. The Eagle, the most prominent symbol of American
power, pride, and tradition, stands poised for whatever trials
may lie ahead. Its
gaze is locked on the officer's saber, as it is in the United
States Officer Corps that he looks to defend the nation whose
colors he displays. In addition, this Eagle in particular is the
Eagle of the Class of 2007, which eagerly awaits its opportunity
to enter into this timeless profession. The Eagle presents seven
stars on its flag, for the Class of 2007. The flag it displays
is the most prominent, sacred, and powerful symbol of our nation.
Revered by good, feared by evil, it embodies all that the Class
of 2007 awaits in their call to duty.
the very top of the crest appears the letters U.S.M.A.: United
States Military Academy - West Point. West Point is at once the
very foundation and the very pinnacle of our military, ethical,
moral, and scholarly training. For this reason, it is given the
most prominent position on the crest.
oak leaves envelop the attack sites, extolling the peace that
the United States endeavors to maintain, that the towers embodied
at the time of the attack, and the strength that is the Pentagon.
About the Eagle's head are five arrowheads, symbols of America's
military capability. There are more arrowheads than oak leaves
because in order to regain that state of peace, America, and the
Class of 2007, must now exert a greater degree of force than the
typical; our show of strength is not so much planted on the home
front as it is flying towards those who would harm us or other
innocents, with great haste, precision, and deadly force.
