From: Chairman, Class of ’73 50th Reunion Gift Committee
Re: Class of ’73’s 50th Reunion Gift to the Academy

Classmates,

Greetings! We trust that you are experiencing fair winds and following seas ... a time to reflect and to focus.

We came to the Academy at a time of great unpopularity of the US Military. We were all going to Nam anyway. Not popular, but the right thing to do.

Where has each of us traveled these past nearly 50 years?
We each took different journeys upon graduation, but, two events tie us together. Swearing in for 1,300+ of us on June 30, 1969, and, for 900+, being commissioned on June 6, 1973, bond us each to the other with celebrations of opportunities that lay ahead, and challenges achieved, as nothing else could have. We took different classes, played different sports, had different roommates, stood different watches, different majors, different duty stations, different causes, but on these two dates, we were one. And, our Class Crest unifies us. Look at the “Non Sibi” on your ring, on our Class Crest. For others, not just ourselves.

In our collective careers, our Class has produced:

  • 4 four-stars (including CNO, Pacific Fleet, Atlantic Fleet, SoCom)
  • 7 three-stars
  • 9 two-stars
  • 6 one-stars
  • Lawyers, Doctors, Coaches, Educators, Ministers, Fathers, Husbands, Doers, Servant Leaders
Since graduation, our class has contributed over $3.1 million to the Academy for a number of initiatives including the Distinguished Chair in Leadership, improvements to Navy Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, a granite bench on Stribling Walk honoring “Command”, refurbishment of the Macedonian Monument, support of the Center for Academic Excellence, multiple projects for sport teams, Extra Curricular Activities and, through unrestricted giving to the Annual Fund, whatever else was needed for the Midshipmen and the Academy, respectful of the past, looking to the future, executing now, when needed.
