    Found this doing research.
    http://www.usma.edu/notablegrads.asp

    On the right hand panel:
    Of the 164 graduates of the Class of 1915, 59 achieved the rank of brigadier general or higher, the most ever in a class.

    Wow.

    The Class of 1915 had WWII to "help" them earn that many stars. While the grads of 1915 certainly stepped up to the plate when out nation needed to be defended, I think that any USMA class would have performed honorably if presented with the circumstances that USMA 1915 faced.

    Maybe the 2015 class crest will have something commemorating the centennial of "the class the stars fell on," like how the class of 2002 had the word bicentennial on their crest to commemorate 200 years of USMA.
