Beat Navy Bash in Paris, Dec. 8th PDF Print E-mail
Dear Graduates, Cadets, Friends of West Point, and all Army Football Fans,

Army's win over Air Force officially started the 2018 BEAT NAVY season!
We plan to meet in Paris to watch the Army-Navy game on December 8th. Kick-off is at 2100h local, though we suggest arriving early to secure a position and a beer in time to laugh at Navy's march-on.   

Tentatively, we plan on meeting at our usual watering hole, The Moose (16 rue des Quatre Vents, Paris 75006). Unfortunately none of the Parisian sports bars confirm the games they show until the week prior. As in past years, we will confirm the venue a few days ahead of the game. So save the date and stay tuned.
Uniform is As for Beat Navy; Black/Gold/Gray ensembles are de rigueur.  

Please feel free to pass this invite on to anyone you know who might want to attend.  Hope to see you all on December 8th!
Here's how it ended last year... so be there, be square!

  • Three Brothers Enter the Class of 2017

    For one of the few times in its long history, the U.S. Military Academy accepted three siblings into the same class. Eighteen-year-old twins Sumner and Cole and their 19-year-old brother Noah, of Nederland in southeast Texas, have each signed on for four years of academics and military training. If all three make it through the rigorous program, they will simultaneously toss their caps into the air as newly commissioned second lieutenants in the Army in 2017.

    "It helps knowing that your brothers are here, even though we're going to be separated all across campus in different companies, but I'm sure we'll see each other and it will help keep morale a little bit higher," Sumner said after a bus dropped the brothers off early Monday along with some 1,200 new arrivals.

    The three Ogrydziak brothers received presidential appointments, which are available for children of career military personnel. Their father, Coast Guard Capt. Randal Ogrydziak, is a deputy sector commander based in Corpus Christi, and their mother Kristine served in the Coast Guard for 10 years. Both grandfathers served in military.

  • Expanding Hallowed Ground at West Point Cemetery

    Image by RossPilot 2009The West Point Cemetery has taken in graduates of the Long Gray Line from the age of the cavalry charge to the dawn of drone strikes. Headstones etched with names like Custer and Westmoreland stand near plots with freshly turned earth.

    And after almost two centuries, the 12-acre cemetery is close to full.

    The U.S. Military Academy and its graduates are taking steps to make more room with new niches for cremated remains and an eventual expansion of the burial grounds. The work will update a resting place for more than 8,000 people that is the most hallowed ground at the nation's the most venerable military academy.

    "I would challenge you to find more valor in a smaller amount of space," says cemetery administrator Kathleen Silvia, who notes that 16 Medal of Honor recipients lie here.
