As did my DD. I echo your sentiments. Unfortunately, we have a family vacation planned so we won't be attending this year. I'm sure this is but one of many future opportunities to gather and honor the history and traditions of this amazing institution.My son has been invited to a founders day dinner hosted by the West Point society in our area. As I continue to learn about the interesting history and long standing traditions of USMA, I gain a deeper admiration of the institution my son has chosen.
