    Hello SAF,

    I'm looking to get my dad and grandpa a gift for this Father's Day. I'm not sure how much USMA branded stuff is out there, but I'm sure some of you Old Grads and families have seen it all.

    My dad enjoys smoking a tobacco pipe and drinking bourbon, and my grandpa is very interested in WWII history and 1900s aircraft, so if you know of anything related to those "hobbies," please let me know.

    I like your dad. He and I share an affinity. They have some nice glassware at the Association of Graduates gift shop. The glasses have the USMA crest on them.

    Sorta, kinda expensive, but they are nice. They will ship.

    You want the most likely want the "Etched on the Rocks" glass. "Old Fashioned" glass would be good, too.


    For your grandpa, see if you can find a book called "There's a War to be Won" by Geoffrey Perret. It's just about the US Army in World War II. Good read.
