    After reading the "motto" of the class of 2014 I was wondering what some other classes have had as their's. I am sure there are some favorites out there.

    "Forever One Team - 2014"! I am going to give this one three stars out of four.

    I personally never understood the Class of '07 emphasis on Sept. 11th, as they were not cadets at the time it happened and we had sort of fixated on Iraq at that point. I remember that we were all a bit perplexed at the time.

    Anyhow, 2014 has an interesting motto. I like it, though I'll always be partial to the '04 motto.

    Thanks for the list. Really enjoyed the link. Obviously, a lot of thought into the crests during their design. Very impressive.

    Just slightly disappointed with the motto - I was hoping for something that was more patriotic and a motto that included pride in the country or the corp, not necessarily pride in just our class. But it could've been worse!

    The "team" can mean pretty big things, according to the dictionary.:wink:
    Congratulations on getting over the Beast, and on getting computer access.:thumb:

    Ya I was really worried people we going to vote for that one. I am too a little dissappointed that we couldn't come up with something better, but oh well it could be a lot worse.

    And anything is better than "let our light be seen" :confused:

    I actually really like the motto. I felt like teamwork was the most important lesson of CBT.

    I feel bad for all the classes that follow us, especially 2019. There only are so many things that rhyme with "teen"...

    2019 wont get a bad motto; class mottos dont have to rhyme, they just usually do historically. Does anyone have a complete(or at least fairly comprehensive) list of USMA class mottos from over the years?

    i was actually hoping for a list that included how the classes of the 1910's dealt with the "teen" issue for mottos, specifically the "class that stars fell on", the class of 1915, which included Eisenhower and Bradley, among others.
