As the newly elected President of our Alumni Association, I wanted to let you know our Association remains vibrant and active at our campus.
Over the last few years, the Alumni Association has completed several projects which have enhanced the Cadet experience. Since 2013, we have worked with the Academy on a complete remodel to the Davis Hall Lobby, a complete renovation of the Atkinson Museum and a resurfacing of the tennis courts.
As your Association President, I have a seat on the Board of Trustees where I represent alumni in decisions that affect the Academy.
We recently assisted with the publishing of a history book about Army and Navy Academy written by Alexander Mui, Class of 2008. Copies are available in the museum.
The Alumni Association Board endeavors to help the Academy so the Cadets of today receive the benefits of an Army and Navy Academy education as we did.
Warrior Proud! Warrior Strong!

Preserving our History
The ANA Historical Committee was formed to preserve and archive historical artifacts, photographs, and documents so that they’re intact and easily accessible for future generations. Led by Historical Committee Chairman Brad Larsen ’72, this is an ongoing project to preserve our history and maintain our legacy.
A highlight of this year’s Alumni Weekend was the grand opening of the newly renovated Atkinson Museum. Thanks to the generosity of Brad Larsen ’72, the old guard shack underwent a dramatic, year-long transformation and now proudly showcases Academy artifacts and memorabilia, with all yearbooks available digitally for alumni to browse via touchscreen.
Alex Mui ’08 also made a special guest presentation at the Warrior Pride Luncheon to discuss the release of his new book, Army and Navy Academy: History of the West Point of the West, which chronicles the rich and layered history of the Academy. All 2017 Alumni Weekend attendees received a free autographed copy.
The Alumni Association is committed to keeping you informed of projects, networking opportunities, and Academy events. There are many ways to get involved with the Alumni Association. Whether you’re interested in participating on a committee, volunteering your time on campus, or simply staying in touch with us, we want to hear from you.
Would You Like to be a Class Agent?
As a class agent, you will be the point of contact between your class and the Academy. You’ll help us improve communications with alumni, provide feedback on special events like Alumni Weekend, and reconnect your classmates with the Academy.
We welcome all who are interested to get involved, and we look forward to hearing from you!
