Class Crest - Like None Before

The motto inscribed on the crest, “Like None Before,” as a symbol of a promise that the class will always remember to honor those who came before them while forging a better path forward to those who will come after them.  
A part of the crest included an oak leaf in the eagle’s mouth, which is meant to honor the Class of 2024’s 50-year affiliate, the USMA Class of 1974.
The other main elements of the crest include the Athenian helmet and a star-shaped like a rose compass, which Lopes said helps remind them of the history and legacy they now share with West Point plus two other important pillars.

Graduation History

Originally known as June Week (because Graduation happened in early or mid-June), Graduation Week and Graduation is filled with events to recognize graduating cadets' connection to both their classmates and the classes that have come before them.

50-Year Affiliation Class

Beginning with the Class of 1999 and Class of 1949, on R-Day, the entering cadet class is paired with an alumni class that is fifty years its senior. Over the next four years, the graduates accompany their affiliated cadets at significant Academy events, including the final event in a cadet's 47-month experience, graduation.

As cadets “Grip Hands” with those who preceded them a half-century earlier, the 50-year Affiliation Program has matured to become an indispensable element in not only the development of cadets but also in the strengthening of the Long Gray Line.
