It is more than a place to visit, however; it is an institution whose tradi- tions go back to the early years of the last century. It is also an institution that has seen change in recent years, and with those changes have come chal- lenges. This book is about those changes and challenges, as well as about the tradi- tions, and how they impacted upon our class, the Class of 1977, and the Corps with whose leader- ship we were charged. As we pay tribute to ourselves, however, we must not forget those sol- diers and civilians who supported and guided us along the way. This is their book too. It is a book about West Point, the West Point of the middle 1970s, and the individuals who passed their way during those years — individuals who have left their mark on West Point, as West Point has left its mark on them. Together West Point and its graduates go forward to meet the challenges and changes of their future. CHANGE CHALLENGE « ■ ' ,vi Sg«iis ■ - s f ' ' l Change, we see it in the seasons. Sparkling autumns giving way to rug- ged, icy winters. The awakenin g of the grass in late winter as it crouches, ready to spring into a verdant, lush spring. And through it all, the con- stancy of the traditions, and history, the monuments that mark West Point as a visible symbol of national pride. A jutting bulwark blocking the on-rushing Hudson in its race to the sea. West Point teaches us to face the rivers of change that will mark our lives with noble bearing and hum- ble dignity. 1 msBm See the masses as they stand facing their futures. But look closer, each of them is an individual who in his time will go forward to lead other masses of indi- viduals. Thousands have come before them, and thousands will come afterward. Each will do his part; each will contribute his bit to forward the cause of our great nation. Silently present in thes e formations, of which we have stood thousands, like an invisible vapor over the crisp ranks of massed troops, is the sense of duty, honor, and country that stirs us all.

West Point offered the opportunity for exuberance. Work hard — play hard became an unwritten motto, an approach to our situation that engendered a zeal and a spirit in which the more somber part of our development could thrive. n r CHANGE CHALLENGE I? J ' : VI»HM TpJrE ' » (lM. ' ' ' 7 ' ' iajsi»s ;V-;: A.:. vs; ' t .J - On the fields of friendly strife are sown the seeds that on other days, on other fields, will bear the fruits of vic- tory. Well, sometimes the strife didn ' t seem so friendly, but they did develop in us a will to win, and where we couldn ' t win we strived with such a zeal and determination as to make our opponents fear that we were going to. This never say die attitude, this quest to conquer our foes against all odds, has been burned into our souls and will surely surface on other fields should we be called upon to so serve. V 13 CHANGE CHALLENGE % j i ' i Sometimes the quiet could unnerve you. The serenity, the beauty of the place was overwhelming. The lightheartedness, the eternal striving to meet never ending pres- sures, both gave way to a sense of awe. The place was bigger than all of us. The whole was greater than the sum of its parts. To share in that greatness was recognizable a privi- lege, but a privilege that humbled us to the depths of our souls. 15 New faces (and figures) were one of the changes on the scene. But the challenge was a familiar one: Do something, get involved, don ' t take the easy way out, give of yourself. Give of ourselves we did — our strengths, our skills, our minds, our zeal, our dedication, our efforts, our all. And ' ■ ' e back to rv..i:j us, as well as the institution. 7- CHANGE CHALLENGE i-W ' Discipline, a timeless challenge, was a major part of our endeavors: Detail, precision, more detail, more precision — over and over again. But discipline is not intended for mindless purposes. It is a founda- tion upon which an army is built, and we were to be the builders of the new army. We have been pre- pared to face the challenges of that new army, and the changes that it brings — but we are not so foolish as to forget the lessons that the past has to offer. a» S,1£StStiiiii SiT7K BS3firm jiiw»-iA.;v- ..M. i .

But officers must be soldiers too, and gentlemen are more than just nicely scrub- bed faces with the proper words emanating from their lips. From our initial reception to grueling patrols to uniform purchases to graduation day we covered the full spectrum of what it means to be a commissioned offi- cer. We hope that we have learned our les- sons well. 21 CHANGE CHALLENGE The pace seemed relentless. Always we strived, giving forth that last ounce of strength, then reaching down for even more. Even at night sleep seemed to elude us as we struggled to grasp the concepts on which we would be tested the following day. And so It went throughout our four years, a total involvement of body and soul and mind as we condi- tioned ourselves to meet the future challenges of duty, honor, country. 77 ilUti:aSiasR: :i.:- i; i:,.ii.:.:. .

There has no doubt been a million words already written about that occasion. Suffice to say here that it was a change replete with challenges — chal- lenges to the individual women who entered thereby changing their lives: challenges to the institution which changed years of tradition in this single act; challenges to the incumbent male cadets who had to change their outlooks on the role of women in the military; challenges to the American public who had to alter their perceptions of their military academy. The real trick, of course, was to make one change without making fundamental changes in the mis- sion of the Military Academy. By maintaining the traditional standards of excellence in all endeavors, this was a challenge that we feel was met. I 33 i ADMINISTRATION LIEUTENANT GENERAL SIDNEY B.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives vaHantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a W()rth cause; who at the best knows in the end the tri- umph of higli achiexcmenl; and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know n ' itlicr ictory nor defeat. — Theodore Roosevelt 39 BRIGADIER GENERAL JOHN C.

M 153 ENGINEER TRAINING TEST West Point sometimes seems an endless battery of tests — from the first day until the last. It was impossible to l e up for every one of them, but most of us managed to estal - lish some sort of priority system. Nevertheless, it was still a grind — always the clock to beat, the mathematical jjuzzle to solve, the pa|)er to write, the last pull-up to do. It was a life full of activity, but activity for a pur|)ose — so that when we might be tested later under different circum- stances, it would not be a totally unfamiliar experience. 155 COMPANY A-4 . iWW V x ?

We learned that the very structure of the army we would eventu- ally enter was in transition. It was a smaller Army now, and one without conscripts. " Everyman a volunteer " we heard, and we wondered what that would mean in our future careers. We learned also that the weapons of war were changing, and that gave us some pause. There would he new tactics, new dangers, and new challenges. Learning to face those challenges were why we were here. And so we passed our time in a variety of ways, hut always our thoughts were to the future and the many challenges that lie ahead. 4 f ni 1 1 199 201 ARMY FALL SPORTS FINISH SEASONS WINNING 26, LOSING ONLY 14 Viw 150 lb. foothuil leant won the National Championship »ith an unde- feated season.

With four years of varsity action under his hell. Brian Smith captained the team, providing the leadership expected of the numher (me squash player on the team. LTC John Bradley moved into the coaching slot from his dual role as Officer Representa- tive. The numher two player, Zach Smith, also relied on four years of varsity experience. Dan Hammond was the most consistent player hy providing victories in all but two of his matches. Kurt Andrews and Nick lorio rounded out the top half of the ladder. Chris Lai, Gary Krahu, Rusty Struble, Jim Greer, and Dan D(K de made up the remainder of the team. A record of 4 wins and 6 losses in no way reflects the amount of individual effort and outstanding performances demonstrated by the squash team. The true caliber of the team was demonstrated at the squash nationals held at Navy when Army captured 5th place out of the 32 teams that entered from the L.S. and Mexico. Dan Hammond, Zach Smith, and Brian Smith went to the Nationals in the upper bracket while Chris Lai, Nick lorio and Rusty Struble in the lower bracket.

Right: Army a)mpctitor prepares to defeat another opponent from Rutgers. Without the aid of a permanent and experienced coach the Army fencing team did very well against a tough sched- ule which included some of the finest teams in the country. Army succeeded in defeating Yale, Dartmouth, Baruch, Cor- nell, William Patterson and came close to beating several other very prestigious teams. Returning lettermen such as Bob Hamilton. Bob Carter, Alan Starkie in foil; Paul John- son in epee; and James Clay in saber led the team with out- standing individual records. Considering the fact that Coach Geraci was dismissed last year and no replacement given, much credit must be given to Captains Feher, Bresnich and Tracner, Colonel Larson and Major O ' Neil for their assist- ance in coaching. The teant had great drive and will to win as evidenced by its outstanding performance in the E.C.A.C. championships where both the foil and saber teams placed 4th out of 14 top notch Eastern division colleges including Navy. Bob Hamilton, the new captain of the team; Gary Touchet and Paul Johnson competed in the National Cham- pionships where they made a very respectable showing. 246 FENCING TEAM WINS 5, FOIL, SABER TEAMS PLACE 4th FENCING SEASON RESULTS ARMY OPPONENTS 14 William Patterson 13 16 Yale 11 20 Bariich 7 5 Penn State 22 13 Rutgers 14 7 St. John ' s 20 18 Dartmouth 9 8 Columbia 19 8 NYU 19 12 Pennsylvania 15 7 Princeton 20 16 Cornell 11 12 Navy 15 Front Ro»: M.

Army ' s swimming team improved last year ' s 7-7 record by posting a 7-6 marlv this year. Much of the success of this year ' s team was due to the efforts of co-captain Ted Kana- mine. Kanamine, an all-American and Eastern Seaboard champion, dominated the 200 yard butterfly, the 500 yard freestyle, the 1000 yard freestyle, and the individual medley and became the highest scorer in Army history. Koji Nishi- mura was a consistent winner all year for the Cadets, espe- cially in the 200 yard breaststroke. Ray Bosse, Army ' s other co-captain, swam well for Army in the 200 yard individual medley. Senior Jim Bickford, junior Tim Glenn, and Fresh- men Matt Tavrides and Tom Wilhelm were also strong per- formers for the team. West Point finished the year strong by winning four of their last five meets. Army finished fourth in the Eastern Championships, their best showing in several years. They also qualified the highest number of people ever for the NCAA championships. Ray Bosse says, " This was the first winning season we have had since I have been here. We were never out of any events.

Following another loss, the Cadets rolled over Florida State and Yale to win the Vermont Clas- sic. With the start of the new year Army continued on its win- ning way. They defeated Buffalo. Scranton. Air Force, and Rochester while losing only to Lafayette and Manhatten. The Cadets opened the last month of the season with hopes of an invitation to the NIT. as the soundly defeated Penn State and Seton Hall. But then the Army machine ran into trouble as they lost to St. John ' s, Virginia Tech. and Holy Cross. The Cadets closed out the regular season with wins over lona and Colgate and a one point victory over Navy. As a result of their fine record, the Cadets were rewarded a spot in the ECAC playoffs. They drew Seton Hall as their open- ing round opponent and were handed a 77-71 setback. How- ever Army bounced back to defeat Manhatten and conclude the season on a winning note. Junior forward Gary Winton was the scoring leader for Army once again as he averaged 22.5 points per game.

Curt Alit , perhaps the most spectacular performer of the ear. »as named Most Valuable Player of the Hepta onals at Cornel I niiersity and selected to compete in the National Col- leciate Athletic Association Meet. Curt ran the mile. two. and three mile e ents. He placed fourth in the three-mile run. Others qualify in): for the Nationals were Dave Wiencer and Scott Ix-achman. field specialists who threw the hammer. Another consistent performer was Bob lloisington (78) in the high jump. lloisiuKton jumped consistently for the Cadets at 6 ' 6 " to 610 " thrt)U( hout the winter season. Sophomore Mike Willis contributed heavily toward Army ' s ictories in the 60 yard hi( h hurdles and kmg jump. Ivory Carson, a top sprinter who competed in the 60 yard high hurdles. 60 yard dash and occasionally in the mile relay. The senior sprinter was probably the most consistent sprinter of the indiMir season. Mike Schaefer. a middle distance man. ran consistently at 1:12 in the 600 yard dash and helped by running 48 second quar- ter miles. He ran a tremendous leg in the mile relay that beat the Navy quartet, which contributed to Army ' s win over Navy at the Army Kieldhouse. In the meet against Navy John Depiazza came through with a tremendous effort in the pole vault. While the pole vault was still to be contested, the outcome of the meet was still in doubt. How- ever, Depla za won his event to sew up the victory for the Army team. Throughout the season the Army team has been led by a group of outstanding trackmen and others who are not quite so outstanding but could be counted on when the pressure was on. Such individuals are Randy Gelsler, who came through with a mark of 6 ' 6 " in the high jump for a second place against Navy: Matt Slavish, improved to a 4:12.1 in the mile and also nabbed a second place against Navy; .John Knright, who steadily improved in the two mile to 9:00 minutes.

This outstanding record earned the Cadets a ninth place ranking in the nation by the U.S. Intercollegiate Lacrosse Associa- tion. The highlight of the season occurred when Army defeated eighth ranked Princeton. This vic- tory put the Cadets in a position to receive a playoff bid from the NCAA. Unfortunately, that bid never materialized. One of the finest games of the season was played against third ranked John Hopkins. Scott Finlay, Jim McGorry, Steve McManus, and Ail-American Jose Olivero played superbly as the Army team was defeated 13-8.

Plagued by injuries and horrid batting slumps the cadet team could not gather any momentum as they dropped eight straight games following a 5-3 opening day ictory over Wagner. However, with Coach John Tip- ton on the verge of retirement and with the cadet team maintaining their poise, the cadets ended the season win- ning three of their last six games.

Additionally, the cadets placed second in the Heptagonal Games and sixth in the I.C. 4A ' s, their best showing in 10 years. The team philosophy of Coach Randolph was most obvious in Army ' s 83-80 victory over Navy at Annapolis in the season finale. It was the first outdoor victory over the Middies since 1971. S( Several individual standtuils als » marked the outstanding team effort. C urt Alit led the way by beinj; named All-Anier- ican at 10.000 meters, his third sueh honor this year. He von two titles at the Hepta onals and now holds virtually every Academy distance record above a mile. Team Captain Ivory Carson placed seccuid in the Heps in a plutto finish of the 400 meters hurdles. He was a member of the Academy record mile relay team at 3:09.5. Also on that record squad were Mike Patterson, Clay Slack and Mike Schaeffer. Captain- elect Dave Wiener was selected as an Ail-American in the hani- mer throw as result of his fine showing at the INCAA meet. Dave had previously won the Heptagonals. Bob Hoisington won the Heptagonals high jump crown with a 6 ' 11 " effort. Plebe Steve Krieder placed third in the javelin against the Russians in the US-USSR Junior Meet in Richmond. Steve has improved to over 235 ' in his specialty. Scott Leishmann placed fifth in the I.e. 4A ' s hammer and Mike Patterson was fifth in the 400 meter hurdles. Clutch per- former Steve Aldrich won the discus and placed 2nd in the shot against Navy, leading the way for the upset victory. D. C. Adams placed 5th in the Heps at 1:50.6 for 800 meters, in his first season at the event. Plebe Joe Baker set an Academy record of 3:50.5 in his 1500 meter victory over Navy, and was a member of the Academy record setting 4 X 1500 meter relay. Wayne Chuisano ' s relay split of 3:49.8 on that record setting squad is the fastest by any cadet. 289 I .H ' »TJ O R§ DIVISIOT U.S.C.C. m ' m .J.

Their mission is " to elicit support for all varsity athletic sports through all means available, and to maintain this spirit so that it may transcend the playing surface into the daily lives of cadets. " The objectives are few but far reaching. They are to promote esprit da corps. enthusiasm, and winning spirits among the players and their sup- port. This is accomplished by utiliz- ing such techniques as traditional cheers, acrobatics, attention-getting devices, and rallies to enhance school spirit. Among the club activi- ties are cheering at varsity contests in all three athletic seasons, spon- soring poster making contests, hold- ing rallies each week in the fall, rid- ing the Army Mules and participat- ing in humanitarian events such as the special Olympics for exceptional children. 353 ri P - K i BUGLE NOTES Each year the BUGLE NOTES staff tackles the job of revising the previous publica- tion.

This year it supported the Army Football. Basketball, and 150 lb. Football teams. It also supported the fine productions by the Cadet Acting Troupe as well as playing a number of concerts at and away from West Point. Its goal is to attain the level of prestige of a major college band. HOP BANDS Music isa way of life at West Point. Often we imixirted it, but more often we provided our own. Two such groups. " Token " and " Sweet Harmony, " seen often around the campus endeavoring to brmg joy to our lives had notable short haircuts, leading us to suspect their true identity as cadets. The music was none the worse for the haircuts, however, and the Corps remains deeply appreciative for the entertainment. 359 I I THEATER SUPPORT GROUP The Theater Support Group provides the elbow grease and expertise behind the scenes at Eisenhower Hall.

' r ifirir W I ' Amid a swirl of sights and sounds, actions and moods, the man in the red sash welcomed us to West Point. The qualities of that fine July day were soon overshadowed by a total immersion into the ways of a new cadet. Was this really the goal of our desires and ambitions? The upperclassmen seemed only too willing to contribute to this doubt. The old saying took on a new and very personal meaning: I wish that I were where I was when I wished that I were here. Yet, with determination, hard work, a bit of luck and a great deal of hindsight, we survived. More than survived, we learned to adapt and improve; in that way we can be consid- ered better for this experience. The class of 77 thus had taken the first step along the rocky road of West Point. Our lives would never be the same offer that day. 373 The 1 376 young men came to West Point on 2 July 1973 to become New Cadets of the Class of 1977. The days of New Cadets Borracks or " Beast Barracks " were filled with physical training and indoctrination to a new life. , The New Cadets ' life included field training, uniform fittings, special inspections, rifle monual, and marching drills. The transaction from civilian life to cadet life was completed with six days at Lake Frederick and Re-organization Week. On 29 August 1973, the members of the Class of 1977 were accepted into the Corps of Cadets. a 375 Although in general life as a plebe was pretty grim, there were times one could relax and have a little fun (as much as one could at W.P. without running the risk of being caught). Cul- lum Memorial hall on weekends was a place such was possible, maybe. It really wasn ' t bad, if you don ' t mind being with a girl in the atmosphere of a mausoleum. Yet we found that we could enjoy ourselves and usually did. y E (DP Perhaps now that the ordeal is over with, plebe OPE can be spoken of objectively. No! The physical agony, the mental anguish, the watery terror (as the members of the " rock- squad " of non-swimmers can attest to,) can not be remembered without a twitch of pain. Per- haps it ' s the black-hooded instructors, the hun- gry sharks, and the sharpened spears that keep returning in our dreams, but whatever con be said, you had to have been there.

The Christmas season now had a new meaning to us. Football spirit was replaced by holiday spirit (and spirits.) Trees and other decorations overgrew the barracks. We, of the fourth class had a special inter- est in this event; for many of us it would be the first time we would venture forth into the world as cadets. Our relationship with the world had changed. We had learned to appreciate the simple pleasures of life. Ah! to wear blue jeans and sleep past 8 o ' clock. Of course we believed in Santa Clous! The immense joy and glory in our departure would only be matched by our depression on the return trip. 379 ?B0 m mz Spring had arrived. While most of the corps scattered into the four winds, we, the class members of 80 remained during spring break. Yet, there was little disap- pointment, for we too would relax that week from academics (and the Fourth Class System). The week allowed our class the first opportunity to lead our- selves with out the watchful eyes of the upper class. Most importantly, this was our time to invite our parents and family to visit our new " home. " The planning, the activities, and the good times will hardly be forgotten, nor will the blizzard that showed up Thursday. Th6 snow only canceled the Parade as all other activities continued on schedule. As family and friends left confident about our secure sit- uation we soon awaited recognition and the end of plebe year. 381 Yes, Plebe academics, it was real . . . Ranking in our hearts somewhere between the inquisition and black plague. We all found our own individ- ual means of coping with it. But in the end, some of us discovered that true knowledge is written only on the bock of our eye lids. From the win- dowless maze of Thayer Hail to the endless heights of Washington, we combatted ignorance (and frustration) with CRC ' s and loose slide rules. Finally with hard work, luck, or the magical assist- ance of Gen. Sedgewick ' s spurs, most of us would go on to bigger and better academic adventures in the years to come. " It ' s all over! " These words then seemed so true and appropriate. For on that day the Fourth Class System ended for the class of 77 . Upperclassmen who had previously been our antagonists, now revealed themselve s as pretty decent guys (some, anyway!) A mere handsfiake and a few friendly words ended months of mental hardship and trial. Although we will never forget that moment, we have since learned that those words were not true. It is never oil over!! (Maybe) 383 Camp Buckner was to be the in the woods were the recreational reputed best summer of our lives. highlights of Buckner.

Water sports and other activities M -ii im ' ■r: -tivitiei ofl Is cedoii ' ' ;. , Vs3 -. 385 Wow! It ' s almost like being a real soldier! Camp Buckner was to provide intensive div- ersive military training and to establish a basis of knowledge in the profession of arms. Perhaps the most exciting aspect of the training was the opportunity to work with the big metal monsters at Fort Knox, Ky. Whatever the enjoyment, OPE was never far away. 387 Every cadet with any sort of an opinion is a philosopher to some degree. Such attitudes help moke a cadet life a bit more tolerable and a great deal funnier. Cadet philosophers evaluate many aspects of life, haircuts, the evil of blue jeans and man ' s unending struggle with " the system. " But, true enlightenment is achieved when one realizes that the light at the end of the tunnel is merely the headlight of the oncoming locomotive. II 389 " Number Seventy-Seven! Drinking? " Those familiar phrases must remain one of the most memorable aspects of our stay at the U.S. Community College. Tony ' s Pizza was a Sunday evening " extra, " a lone calazone devoured in the TV room, or a large Sicilian combination v ith a million calo- ries. Tony ' s provided a service which was quite unique to the cadets and in that respect they flocked to it. iiwos i mi, (i ;«b i«j: ' i5 ' vim ' .T ' i i It was amazing! The class of 77 hod never seen the like of it before. The unique spark of victory ran through the corps that day. With this new Army team Coach Homer Smith had started in grand style. As Lafayette left in defeat, we once again began to enjoy Autumn Saturday afternoons. 391 Among the few diversions at W.P. is the Hostess Office. Here the more socially inclined are able to meet and handle their affairs. They also watch cartoons and consume gallons of coffee, not to mention playing cards forever and a day. School day mornings the Hostess Office takes on the qualities of Grand Central Station at rush hour, but with some practice you could sometimes maneuver yourself with hot coffee in hand from the coffee pot to the TV. As the carefree yearlings of 77 returned from the wilds of Camp Buckner, academics were waiting, as formidable and gruesome as ever. School became a challenge, if only to keep us out of other mischief. We learned such wonders as alchemy and the black magic of physics and we spoke in strange tongues. Little did we realize that even greater wonders would lie ahead. So for the time being, with one weekend in his belt and a dozen Buckner war stories, the rowdy yearling roved the halls or occupied the green girls of every company. 393 Ill ■■■ iSS 4 HI I SSS S3S I BSS BBS B ■■■ i 3 B9B IBS 1 1 J HI V 111 HI IB B ■ i BIB BBB ' BBB ilB From the petty rogues with long hair to the master criminals of the century club, the area has real mean- ing. It could be the long, lonely, frigid hours on a bleak winter afternoon. Or perhaps it was the fast- moving games of " area hockey " amid gusty spring breezes. All one needed to play was an infidelity for regulations, a relatively clean rifle, an imaginative mind, and a few spare weekends. Yet, in the end if it was to be a conflict of wills, very few of us broke and many of us returned. hrrr-A ' Ff mV ' |ki Hf ' « ■ ■ r ■ VaB ■ B i B B ♦ S i k t t f 395 VtlO 4 ' ml A West Point parade is supposedly a great event to see. I guess life is all a matter of perspective. Even a cadet can enjoy a parade at times. Seeing a huge crowd on o football Saturday or at a retreat-review the cadet feels pride in him- self. He realizes that he is participating in an event that none of the other service academies excel in. 397 •41 MiK£ Spring at W.P. is usually a pretty fair time of the year. The misery of winter is over and the sweltering of summer is not yet pres- ent. With the advent of warm weather the roofs become overgrown with sunbathers. As the world around W.P. turns green (the world in W.P. always remains grey) just being outside offers a cadet a certain sense of freedom. 399 Don ' t ujorry.L-t. Larson, there ' s lothing Cod t Sn rdley c ir do to... «r, uri. our... um, plafcon N 79 JUNE T7 W.P. must offer the most extensive program for on-the-job train- ng. Most cadets have the opportunity to travel to some unit and ■lo the work of a real lieutenant. Also, it has been rumored that these cadets get to be treated as lieutenants, however a delight ' hot may be. The affect of this experience on cadets is usually sig- nificant and truly makes a lasting impression upon the way they view the army and life as a whole. 401 40? Even as high and mighty firsties, the class of 77 could not escape the ever present grip of the Office of Physical Education. They of the black hoods and grey heart were there to supervise our physical agony. Perhaps it was apathy or just a little too much beer the weekend before, but it seemed as if the two mile run was longer than it had ever been before. But, Whatever! Nowhere on your birth certificate does it say life is guaranteed to be easy! 403 ¥ m T t. Third grade was never like this. Academics became that activity which filled that small void between movies, TV, and innumerable weekends. While the " poets and lovers " avoided numbers in terror, the goats wondered at the stars in amaze- ment. But in the end, the core courses would be that spike of continuity in our hearts and minds. We were boiled alive in " thermo " ; we were nuked in physics; we were drowned in " fluids " ; and of course we were shocked in " Juice. " How- ever enough of us did survive to maintain a quo- rum for our first-class year. If by the midpoint of our third year academic rivalry has not separated the upper and lower quarters of our class, the annual Goat-Engineer game does. This grueling classic is a grudge match of unpredictable outcome. The engineers claim their fame from their ability to amass high grades. The goats stare in bewilderment from their vantage point at the bottom of the class. However, what of the unsung heroes of W.P., the true guardians of football spirit, the middle of the class? 406 Every year W.P. seeks to exchange its cadets with other mili- tary academies. As our cadets depart into a strange new world, we sit back and enjoy the bewilderment and amazement of the other cadets or midshipmen. Particularly, the men of sports rivals are " welcome " at W.P. We all soon realize that they are actually human beings too, maybe. Yet because, of academy exchange programs we learn how good or bad we actually do hove it and that the grass is not always greyer on the other side. 407 ■ In the middle of dreary, damp cold winter there was to occur a landmark for the class of 1 977. Aside from this mark of progress the festivities of 500th Night will be remembered. The officers club was to provide for the celebration and we did celebrate. With only 500 or so days remaining in our cadet lives, we could offord to live for the night. 408 Twice a year W.P. is visited by envoys from Transyl- vania. Although donating blood is not necessarily fun it does have its fringe benefits: free cookies, doughnuts, and a pile of jellybeans. Most of all, it provides an opportunity to see how really brave some of your " big bad " classmates are. Whatever, it ' s all over in a little while and it does beat going to a parade. 409 i A Cadet or Soldier on Guard has no Friends. If college life was not a hassle enough, try it intermingled with guard tours. Having guard is just about as good a deal as a good case of the plague. Only with the plague, you do not have to wear belts and a saber. However once in a grey moon guard can be a good deal. A weekend Grant Hall Guard may lose his free time but what a show! 410 Although the movies were open to all of us after two years of enforced cultural poverty in the barracks, we soon found that only the affluent — those with both the time and the tenths — could afford to go very often. After the movie. Grant Hall was the place to be. It also had its regulars, usually composed of a motley crew from the " Dean ' s other list. " But who wants to talk juice over a shake, anyway? II 411 ■ Again that year the class of 77 was to gather in order to celebrate an achievement. However by this time West Point was in the midst of great difficulties. It was unfortunate that such would have its effect on the spirit of ring weekend. A W.P. class ring does hove its own particular significance whether knocked, just worn or whatever. M7 I 413 During those turbulent times, the members of the class of ' 77 entered their first-class year. Never before and perhaps never again will so much be shaken and questioned at West Point. In spite of the magnitude of these events, training went on. But that year things were to be different. Following the departure of the graduating class, most of the new first-classmen got a chance to work with the " real army. " They received instructor training from actual drill sergeants. If in some cases the detail was shorthanded, there certainly was no shortage of imagina- tion, determination, and good humor. This shortage actually allowed a return to the " old corps " practice of having second- classmen serve as squad leaders during the second detail of new cadet training. The news of the impending scramble was taken in stride; reorganization week would prove to be fun. 415 Summer Provisional Detochment or " Speed " was many things to many people. Whatever can be said of this period in our class history, they were not easy times. It was a time of mental anguish and moral trial. Many lives both personal and institutional were unalter- ably affected. Perhaps it was only that the true charac- ter of people and things were revealed and stark nakedness may not always be pretty. 416 s It ' s really a wonder why they allow a cadet to ploy with pointed Dbjects, like sabers. Yet sabers, or " pig stickers " are the true mark hat one has grown-up as a cadet. As first classmen, one gets to ' play " with sabers for hours learning the tricky little maneuvers vhich look so impressive to the public at parades. 418 v3ff.: WHO SAYS YOU CANT BEAT . THESYSTCM? 9 Cadet life is strange, to say the least. Time here often begins to lose meaning, except in the sense that while there is too much time left as a cadet, there is never enough to do what needs to be done. Thus life becomes o swirl of activities and moods and to lose one ' s perspective and purpose is frighteningly easy. After a while the dry rot of a apathy has been known to set in some cadets. Whereas they have been known to remark, " So what if I ' m apathetic, I don ' t core. " ILIE(G J I With philosophy, ethics, and plain old academics the first clo6S was injected with their dose of evening lec- tures. As the sun goes down, cadet eyelids begin to grow heavy. Finally as each speaker would conclude, there were the inevitable questions; some of quite dubi- ous quality. Grant Hall was the favorite stop for the ofter-the-lecture crowd (as a matter of fact, it was the only place.) ■120 I ' 1 1 M ■ ■ 9mI HKT T- H 1 i l lyj I Kk M 1 -!■ - Sm. P H H ' « l 3C i p 1 (W. )l While the corps scattered into the four winds that fine autumn weekend, 200 die-hard runners remained to leave their mark in the record books. Beginning that Saturday evening, and through out the night these modern Mercuries ran. Time after time, the baton changed hands as each of the 200 men strode his mile. As the sun rose above the Hudson on Sunday morning, they tri- umphed. And then in typical Ail-American style, they celebrated. 421 With a loan burning in their pockets and unlimited weekends gleaning in their eyes, the class of 77 walked into the car show. They were so beautiful, so fast, . . . so expensive. But what the heck, you only live once so might as well LIVE. A new car is a thing of true beauty until its first scratch, then a thing of disappointment until its first repair bill, then a pain. I i 422 423 ■124 The Fall of 1 976 brought us an eerie visit from fhe past as Gregory Peck, looking suspiciously like an " old grad " and a former Superin- tendent, came up to make sure " the Corps hadn ' t. " Patiently we sat through the rec- reation of Douglas MacArthur ' s receipt of the Thayer Award, patiently we, sat through it again; and then again. But it was almost worth it to be in the big time. Who knows, some day we may be able to point out a background shot of the late, late show and say, " See, son I was a cadet, once! " Gregory Peck, looking only slightly less fit than when he took Pork Chop Hill, was a good skate about it, giving us his autograph on detachable portions of our uniform. Some of us took the opportunity to give forth with our best Hollywood close-ups. After all, isn ' t this how Lana Turner was discovered? 425 By the end of the first play we realized our fate. Ordinary football games can not invoke the passion, the exitement, and . . . the disappointment, that this annual duel has. However the class of 77 was being given one lost chance to participate in a victory. It was not to be ours that year. Constant reversals could not dampen our spirits that afternoon, or that night. Actu- ally in the end, it was Army that won the day as mem- bers of the class of 77 returned the Navy goat which they had captured. From the early flurries of November to the bitter cold of o Jonuary oreo-tour to the endless grey of " Gloom Period, " a West Point winter is a gruesome combination of a medieval curse, the North Pole, and the St. Louis Zoo. Yet right in the middle of all this lies one brilliant gem. Christmas leave can- not be taken lightly, not even when it is your last one at this the greyest of winter wonder-lands. I I I ' irx» III 11 427 y f : IPIE(I])qIJIE(DT dJXCIIAlL (BnEE CIE IPAIPEIK As our final spring at West Point dawned, horrible ogres stood fast on the horizon. Born out of the depart- ments of Engineering and Social Science these abomina- tions were for most of us the last academic hurdle. But that lost obstacle was not to be so easily passed, as many sleepless nights and overfilled trash cans will attest to. Cadet engineers and diplomats proposed, analyzed, designed, tested, and recommended. Finally as the last sounds of a straining typewriter dies into the mist of an early dawn, we finish; and are on our way. t ■ r S ' .t •b-i ,0B co ft HTMM: OoMt77 429 Free " coffee, " warm doughnuts, TV, and o convenient place to meet: Coffee call at Grant Hall was a decidedly good deal. On each school day Coffee Coll was open to the First Class. Good friends from the old companies could always be seen together, swapping weekend " war-stories. " For some Coffee Call provided an opportunity to do that studying that was not quite finished from the night before. While for others, it provided a TV that was never quite finished with. As the song goes, " . . . and don the army blue . . . " , the class of 77 prepared to enter the commissioned service. It is then that the realization is most impressing, that such a trans- ition is expensive. Taking advice from all quarters the cadets soon to be lieutenants, made their decisions with as much luck as experienced insight. But it was clear to them that looking sharp was as much a part of the uniform as looking alike. So the tailors measured, and cut and sewed, and we paid. 431 As they say " It can ' t be too impor- tant a decision because they ore let- ting us make it for ourselves. " How- ever, cadets do tend to take the selec- tion of their branches seriously. They may not always be sure of what they want or be able to get what they want or even care what they want or have any choice what they want. In the atmosphere of an auction the branch selection for the class of 77 was over and the character of many cadets wos revealed. 432 100th NITE SHOW The Class of 77 was quite ready and willing to celebrate their transition into " double-digit midgets " with the passing of 100th night. Among the traditions associated with this transition is the 100th Night Show. This show produced by and starring the First Class usually satirizes cadet life. Also a reversal of roles between the Firsties and Plebes is attempted. However as graduation became closer than ever before the invisible walls of academics began to become painfully apparent. 435 ■ V I 437 Message from a Graduate not yet graduated. As one can almost count the remaining hours on his fingers, a bit of philosophic reflection is in order. Man is c. very moody temperamental being, more of an animal than he would like to admit and far less of a god than he could realize. If human exist- ence is frustrating and paradoxical, then cadet life is merely an intensification of our being human. A man enters the academy with such goals and aspirations that would make a Caesar seem of little consequence. In this light frustration is not a dishonor, it is merely the residue of an ego ' s contact with reality. The real irony of cadet existence is the constant juxtaposition of depression ot joy, bitterness and pride, misery and humor. Once a man can learn to live and develop in such on existence he may P o e to be indomitable. Regrets are a costly commodity that offers little save self-pity in return. The future is the only quality that makes life so || intrinsically valuable, and that has not yet begun. Roy M. Wnek Class of 1977 I 441 June Week seemed so long in coming yet now it is very real. Life is hectic with parades, packing our things, taking families and friends around, and of course some very heavy partying. Yet despite it all, we are elated deep down since we are soon to graduate. As the hours count down we begin to realize the true meaning of " short " : when we have more things to do than there is time left to do them in.

It works very simply. Members save with us. Appropriately, our savings accounts are called " share accounts " because our members share in the ownership of PFCU. When our members need money, they borrow from us. Or, more accurately, they borrow from their fellow members. Earnings from the loans are passed along to the members in the form of additional dividends on savings or share accounts. Our last quarter dividend was 6-1 2%. PFCU members save money on credit, too. Our Thrifty Credit Service, which works like a checking account, costs 33-1 12% less than most store accounts and credit cards. Our management staff is tiny compared to conventional financial institutions.

Both Members of AMAA! Arthur MacArthur Imagine for a moment that dramatic day, 25 Novem- ber 1863 ... the place, the slopes of Missionary Ridge, just south of Chattanooga, Tennessee. The assault has slowed. Sherman is held up on the left. Hooker stymied on the right, then Thomas and Sheridan in the center receive Grant ' s order to charge the base of the Ridge. Not only did the troops capture the objective but, with extraordinary initiative and vigor, moved up the slopes and carried the entire Ridge! During the assault, young Arthur MacArthur, then First Lieutenant and Adjutant, 24th Wisconsm Infantry, moved forward, picked up his troops " fallen flag, and with the famous rallying cry " On Wisconsin! " led his regiment up the Ridge against Bragg ' s murderous fire to help win the day for the Union. His meritorious action at Missionary Ridge won him the Medal of Honor. Douglas MacArthur Rarely in history has a son followed a distinguished father ' s steps and reached even greater heights of honor and glory. The proud, forthright, and strikingly hand- some son of Arthur MacArthur, quickly distinguished himself in World War 1 in the famous 42nd " Rainbow " division. He collected n.o less than 2 Distinguished Service Crosses, 7 Silver Stars and 2 Croi.x de Guerres. His story needs little retelling, his assignments included the Super- intendency of West Point, and military commander of the Philippines. When Chief of Staff, he created the nucleus of the Army Air Corps. His citation for the Medal of Honor on 1 April 1942. reads in part . . . " for heroic conduct of the defensive and offensive operations of the Bataan Peninsula . . . for leading a gallant defense against a tremendous superior- itv of enemy forces in men and arms. " AMAA is proud to have counted both the MacArthurs as members of this unique officer mutual aid as- sociation which is open to active duty career commissioned and warrant officers in the U.S. Army and has offered immediate and continuing assistance to Army officer families for over 98 years.

The cadets sat through four speeches that day. . . . Major General Winfield S. Hancock: " ... lead a ctive, temperate, studious lives, develop your physical qualities as well as mental. Regard the education acquired here as but rudimentary. . . . " The General then suggested to the cadets that they request service at the most western outpost at the time: Yellowstone. Professor Charles O. Thompson, President of the Board of Visitors, told the cadets: " The world would soon become a frozen waste but for the inextinguishable ardor of youth. . . . Young gentlemen, the Board of Visitors can have no better wish for our common country than that your future will fulfill the promise of the present. " Secretary of War, Hon. George W. McCrary, told the class: " ... there is one thing I may say to you because it ought to be said to every graduating class . . . and that is, that the profession does not enoble the man, but the man enobles the profession. Character, young men, is everything; without it your education is nothing ... be true to yourselves and principles of honor . . . which have always characterized the great and successful. . . . " And Major General John M. Schofield, Superintendent of the Academy: " The West Point Diploma has ever been a passport to public respect. . . . But such respect and confidence imply corresponding responsibilities. ... do not fail to pursue your . . .studies, that you may know the laws of nature, and make her forces subservient to the public welfare. " The people have changed . . . the times have changed . . . the most western outpost now reaches to the stars ... but the messages are still valid. To the new Class of ' 77, our heartiest wishes for success. United States Steel 607 ' ' We fight, get beat, rise, and fight again ' -General Nathanael Greene South Carolina, 1781 For eight long months, General Nathanael Greene and his patchwork army of rugged militia and rawboned backwoodsmen fought battle after battle against a well-equipped, numerically superior British armed force. Time and again, the Americans were beaten back or withdrew. But they did, indeed, rise and fight again. It was precisely this kind of dogged determination that won America its freedom from the Crown in the Revolutionary War. Always short of men, money and supplies, Greene couldn ' t afford to risk full-scale war against the might of the British. But he could use his tough, highly mobile forces to fragment the British fighting strength at various strong points and cut off their vital supply routes. And this he did. Using startling hit-and-run guerrilla tactics against the rigidly formal brand of British warfare, Greene ' s strategy paid off. He won the war in the South. Each time the daring General and his men struck and pulled back, obstinately attacked and expeditiously evaded, they so crippled the Redcoats that the treaty of October 19, 1781, was inevitable. Since the birth of our nation, America ' s military has met challenge after challenge with Herculean heroism. For 55 of those years, it has been our privilege to serve the officers who have served our country so well. Today, nine out of ten active duty officers insure with USAA. If you ' re a Midshipman, Cadet, Regular, National Guard, Reserve or Retired officer (whether or not drawing retirement pay), you ' re eligible to join this elite group.
