Welcome To The West Point Society of Central Florida
The West Point Society of Central Florida exists to serve alumni, ex-cadets and friends of The United States Military Academy living in Central Florida as well as those visiting the area. The purpose of the society is to provide a networking platform for those associated with the Academy, provide news, information, and to further the ideals and promote the welfare of the USMA.
Bob McDonald ('75) was kind enough to forward some information he received from LTG Caslen ('75) about the upcoming game and preparation. Thanks to Bob for sharing this information with us.
Note: You can click on the picture below to see the Army uniforms that will be worn in this year's game.
On Sunday evening, we unveiled this year's uniform to the football team in honor of the historic 10th Mountain Division. In a short ceremony, appropriately hosted on the ice of Tate Rink, we presented this year's uniform and relayed to our players some of the incredible history of the division and their motto, Climb to Glory.
Scott Collier ('76) and Jeff Staubach (Roger's son) are shown together with one of the footballs that will be used at this year's Army/Navy football game. Roger Staubach put a number "12" on 48 game balls that will be used in the game this year. These footballs all have a chip implanted for authenticity. Click Here to see a closeup of the football which goes hand in hand with Navy's "Blue Angel" inspired uniforms for this year.
As a side note, Scott has worked for Roger since 1985 and has endured going into the office "after" the Army/Navy game and seeing the game score written on his white board. Last year was different (after fourteen long years) and Scott is fully confident, that this year he will once again be the one being taken out to dinner.
If you have any stories you would like to share about this rivalry, let us know.
Thanks to the generosity of alumni, family, and friends, West Point Association of Graduates has made a significant contribution to the landscape of West Point with the construction of a new visitors center to serve the Academy and its visitors. This achievement was celebrated on Friday, October 27, with the official ribbon cutting for the new Frederic V. Malek West Point Visitors Center.
“The Frederic V. Malek West Point Visitors Center will serve as the gateway to our Academy, that first stop where visitors can learn about West Point—our history, our contributions to the nation, and our all-important mission of educating, training, and inspiring leaders of character,” said USMA Superintendent Lieutenant General Robert L. Caslen Jr. ’75.
According to CDT Kelley Ericson ’21, the Corps of Cadets had been buzzing with excitement all week over the arrival of former President George W. Bush, the 2017 recipient of the Thayer Award, and when he entered Washington Hall for the award dinner and ceremony he received what CDT Jackson Luff ’18 called, “Some of the loudest cheers I ever heard in the Mess Hall.” [SEE PHOTOS]
Presented annually by the West Point Association of Graduates since 1958, the Thayer Award recognizes a U.S. citizen whose outstanding character, accomplishments, and stature in the civilian community draw wholesome comparison to the qualities for which West Point strives, in keeping with its motto: Duty, Honor, Country. In his remarks introducing the 2017 recipient, LTG (R) Larry Jordan ’68, Chairman of the West Point Association of Graduates, noted the concept of the Thayer Award originated with the Class of 1931, which sought to create an award that would contribute to the public’s understanding of West Point and the principles on which it is built.
