In Memory of Our Fallen Brothers
The West Point Association of Graduates and the United States Corps of Cadets extend their profound gratitude to the Class of 1966 for its generous gift endowment, ensuring that the Class Ring Memorial Program will continue in perpetuity for future generations of the Long Gray Line. This significant legacy endowment, created in Memory of the Fallen Brothers of the Class of 1966, serves to honor their service, sacrifice and valor. The United States Military Academy Class of 1966 lost the highest number of classmates in the Vietnam War. Below are the names of thirty of its members who died in combat or from combat related actions in Vietnam, or in one case, from a violent encounter with North Korean soldiers after the Vietnam War. Each of these brothers has a memorable story supporting the character and traditions of the Long Gray Line. We salute them all and honor their valor and supreme sacrifices.
We will never forget them.
