The Long Gray Line


The Long Gray Line Fund provides essential resources to strengthen the bonds that connect graduates to their alma mater and families to the Academy of their loved ones—or lost ones. The Long Gray Line Fund provides the means for honoring the courageous men and women of the Long Gray Line by making sure they never lose sight of one another or the Academy they love.

Your support of the Long Gray Line Fund helps keep Herbert Hall, your home at West Point, open and functioning. Your gifts also support programs such as the Ring Melt and 50-Year Affiliation Program, as well as communications from West Point, memorial services, class and society support, career services, and graduate archives—keeping you connected to West Point and the Corps of Cadets. You perpetuate the events, the awards, the traditions. You provide the means that honor you, your families, today’s cadets, and West Point itself—all hearts clad in gray.

Engaging Every Heart in Gray
