The U.S. Military Academy honored members of the Long Gray Line during a wreath laying ceremony at the base of the Col. Sylvanus Thayer statue. This year, the ceremony was held with Superintendent LTG Darryl Williams, Command Sgt. Maj. Jack Love, West Point Association of Graduates President Todd Browne and First Captain Daine Van de Wall, who filled in for the oldest graduate and placed the wreath.
