Hello alumni, parents and friends:
2019 was a pretty extraordinary year for the Naval Academy family … and it wouldn’t have been possible without your help: your support, your engagement, your excitement, your enthusiasm. We’re starting 2020 off the best way possible—by saying “thank you.” We’re grateful for your generosity, your commitment and your pride.
Every milestone achieved in support of the Academy and the Brigade of Midshipmen stems directly from your dedication, and we are thankful every day for the strength of the Naval Academy community.
And we’re not the only ones—our friend Bill the Goat has a message for you, too.This week marks the U.S. Naval Academy Alumni Association and Foundation’s inaugural “Week of Gratitude.” Look for our messages of thanks across our social media channels, pick up the phone if we call (we’re aiming to reach 1,845 of you in honor of USNA’s upcoming 175th anniversary), and please chime in with your own thoughts about the impact your Naval Academy experience has had on your life, why you give back and what you’re grateful for about those connections.
