Tom Berens (‘75) recently completed his documentary about the making of the 2007 first ever West Point Glee Club Reunion Concert. He will be premiering the movie at the Cinema Arts Theater in Fairfax, VA, on April 8 of this year. Seating is limited, so everyone needs to make their reservations on the movie web site at:

This is a BLACK TIE EVENT, with a red carpet and everything (within budget).

The price of admission is $10 per person, cash only, exact change only (buying tickets at the ticket counter detracts from the red carpet experience). See web site for details.

Any proceeds will be donated to the West Point Cadet Glee Club.

If you like good music and a lot of old grads, this movie is for you!
First female general in U.S. armed forces, dies at 97 PDF Print E-mail
As a small child, Anna Mae V. McCabe Hays bandaged legs of tables and chairs. Later, in seventh grade, she wrote that she was going to be the best nurse.

“I was always talking about smiling a great deal, of being happy and doing the very best that I could,” she said many years later.
With that drive and sense of purpose, the Allentown High School graduate worked as an Army nurse overseas during World War II, led the Army Nurse Corps at the height of the Vietnam War and in 1970 became the first woman in the U.S. armed forces to wear the star of a general.
If I had it to do over again,” the retired brigadier general said of her three decades in the Army, “I would do it longer.”

Hays, who came to Allentown as a youngster with her Salvation Army parents and always identified with the city, died Sunday at Knollwood Nursing Home in Washington, D.C., according to her niece, Doris Kressly of Danielsville. Hays was 97.

Prior to moving to Knollwood, Hays had lived in Arlington, Va., for more than 50 years.

“She was an amazing woman who accomplished some great things and lived life on her terms,” Kressly said Sunday. “In the sense of feeling a loss, I don’t. She lived a magnificent life and I’m glad she got to live it the way she did.”

Letter from a cadet Louis Welch USMA 1845 in which he 'explains the injustice and arbitrary nature of the Military Academy's demerit system to his father who perhaps had received a report of his son's "spirit of insubordination." Welch points out that his "conduct [which] was so awfully subversive of military discipline" included a having a rusty musket, unbuttoned coat, improper forage cap, inattention at parade and drill, and smoking (which "is so common that no importance is attached to it".) In a further effort to trivialize his infractions, Louis reports that the father of one of the academy's most honorable cadets, was "nearly made sick" by an unfounded report that his son was "in the habit of visiting dirty grog shops."'

2017 Army-Navy Uniform Honors10th Mountain Division PDF Print E-mail
 The 2017 Army-Navy Uniform tells the story of the soldiers of the 10th Mountain Division and their birth in the winter warfare of World War II. The specialty of the 10th Mountain Division is to conquer the land. They fight on the harshest terrain, in any climate, anywhere in the world, to protect and defend the United States of America. We honor the past by re-telling the story of the “Climb to Glory.” A story of valor, courage, and sacrifice. Inspired, humbled, and motivated by the soldiers that came before us, we don their patches, adopt their mottos, and hold their deeds close to our hearts.  
Army Beats Navy - Wins Commander-in-Chief's Trophy PDF Print E-mail
Bennett Moehring's last-second 48-yard field-goal attempt sailed wide to the left to give the Army Black Knights a 14-13 win over the Navy Midshipmen on Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.

With the victory, Army claims the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy for the first time since 1996.

In 2016, Ahmad Bradshaw delivered the decisive score to help Army break Navy's 14-game winning streak. The senior quarterback was the difference once again, as he scored on a one-yard touchdown run with 5:10 remaining to help put Army ahead by a point.

Bradshaw finished with 94 rushing yards and a touchdown on 21 carries. He also completed his only pass attempt for 20 yards
