Watch the video of this year's Ring Melt and see the moment a legacy gold ingot was created for the Class of 2022 out of 52 donated class rings on February 12, 2021, at WPAOG's Class Ring Memorial Program. The program was also streamed live so that donors, friends and family could attend virtually.
The Ring Melt video was also shared with the entire Class of 2022 that same evening, during the 500th Night Banquet at the United States Military Academy. The Banquet is a milestone celebration for Cadets because they have 500 nights left until their graduation. The 500th Night Banquet was also streamed by USMA on YouTube.
