    Hey all,

    I know that USNA does a 50 Year Link in the Chain Program where graduates from 50 years prior to that class year attend all of the current classes important events. (i.e. Graduates of the class of 1961 would attend the class of 2011's graduation)

    Does USMA do that? I ask because I realized that if I were to enter USMA's class of 2016, our 50 year link in the chain would be the class of 1966, which was the class written about in Rick Atkinson's The Long Gray Line.

    Thanks!

    I don't know about all the events but I see the old grads (Class 50 years prior) marching with the New Cadets in pictures from Beast during the March Back.

    The 50yr class does march back every year.
