WPAOG would like to salute all of the women graduates of West Point. Since the first women entered the Academy in 1976, West Point women have continued to strengthen the legacy of the Long Gray Line. They have excelled as leaders of character as cadets, as officers in the military, as instructors, as leaders in business and government, and as West Point alumni leaders. Since the first women graduated with the Class of 1980, more than 5,100 women have graduated from West Point, prepared to proudly serve our nation and their communities. We thank them for their continued service.
