Army Breaks Ground for Anderson Athletic Center

Army West Point Director of Athletics Boo Corrigan has announced that construction is set to begin on the Anderson Athletic Center, which will be the new state-of-the-art home for the Black Knights' sprint football, softball and volleyball teams.

"We have an incredible opportunity to offer top-level support for many of our cadet-athletes thanks to the Anderson Athletic Center," said Corrigan. "Lee and Penny Anderson have been transformational for the Academy and the Athletic Department. Not only have the Anderson's been instrumental in developing our men's and women's rugby programs, but have endowed head coaching positions and contributed their time and mentorship. The building timeline would not have been met without the significant support of Bill Sandbrook, John and Ellen Drew, and Bill and Diane Spurgeon and the Class of 1981."

AOG Announces The Rockbound Highland Home Program Welcoming Grads Home

Who says you can’t go home again? For 47 months, West Point was your home—through Beast Barracks, Mess Hall meals, clubs and team experiences, competitions on the fields of friendly strife, the Indoor Obstacle Course, graduation, and even the gloom period.

Most alumni love to visit their alma maters, and West Point graduates are certainly no exception. However, because the Academy is on an active-duty Army post, gaining access and touring West Point present unique challenges.

To enhance services for the Long Gray Line, the West Point Association of Graduates has launched The Rockbound Highland Home Program, a new program ensuring that every graduate coming back home to the Academy is welcomed in the special way that family should be.

The Rockbound Highland Home Program was created exclusively for USMA graduates and is designed to assist you in navigating post security procedures, offer special access to select MWR (Morale, Welfare, and Recreation) facilities and services, and provide “insider” tours for you and your guests. For information on how to support the Rockbound Highland Home Program and other WPAOG initiatives, click here.

Should You Be Enrolled Into The National Purple Heart Hall of Honor - Consider

The National Purple Heart Hall of Honor, located in New Windsor NY, commemorates Purple Heart recipients through its Roll of Honor, a database of Purple Heart recipients representing all wars for which the award has been available. All enrollments are done voluntarily and are made by recipients, their families or friends.  There is no comprehensive list of recipients maintained by the US Government.

The Roll of Honor is viewable both in the Hall of Honor and on-line. The version that is viewable in the Hall allows for a total of six screens per recipient. Profiles can contain pictures as well as written narratives of the experience of the recipient. The on-line version is an abbreviated, single page commemoration for each recipient and can be viewed from any computer via the National Purple Heart Hall of Honor website, www.thepurpleheart.com.

According to information gathered from the 2010 Register of Graduates and the 50th Anniversary Yearbook questionnaires, at least 50 classmates have received 64 awards of the Purple Heart.  I have compared this information with that on the National Purple Heart Hall of Honor website and believe that only 5 classmates are included in the current Roll of Honor.

If you are a Purple Heart recipient, I encourage you to complete and submit the necessary enrollment information that can be found at www.thepurpleheart.com/enrollment.

Donations Requested to Name Defenders Lodge Room in Honor of Class of 1961

Frank Gibson is asking for donations to raise $50,000 to name a guest room at the Lee and Penny Anderson Defenders Lodge, Palo Alto, CA, in honor of the West Point Class of 1961.

Placing our Class of 1961 on a Defenders Lodge guest room will contribute to eliminating the mortgage on the building that offers a free safe haven for Veterans and their Caregivers while they undergo medical treatment at the Palo Alto VA.

The details for donating are in the attachment here.

WEST POINT

Long ago when this Country was new
Our forefathers said here’s what we must do.

We must find a place where young men can be
Trained to serve this great country.

West Point was chosen as the place
Where they learned to serve with honor and grace.

They were taught to serve, and only then
Were they sent to become leaders of men.

Duty, Honor, Country for all time
The world is encircled by The Long Gray Line.

By Joan Seibert
in honor of the Class of 1961 50th Reunion
