For more than 200 years, the United States Military Academy at West Point has been providing leaders for our armies—leaders who trained and graduated in gray-clad uniforms. When one of its members passes on—it is said he has joined "The Long Gray Line."
In WWII, many of our fellow 69ers and attached Unit members were called on to make the ultimate sacrifice—giving their life, being killed in action. We think it is apt to say that they, too, have joined "The Long Gray Line."
