We are happy to share with you the news that the Academy has locked in the 25th of April, 2020, as Retiree Appreciation Day for that year. That, in turn, means the official dates for our sixtieth will be from Thursday, 23 April, until Sunday, 26 April 2020. Please note those dates on your long-term planning calendars.

Details to follow!


Our 60@60 Class Gift

Jim O'Connell and Bill Willoughby have stepped up to the plate to solicit intputs from the class regarding the form of a class gift to be presented to West Point at our 60th reunion. Through this gift we'll have an opportunity to make a lasting impact on future members of the Long Gray Line.

At this point there appears to be a consensus the the Class of 1960 would prefer to leave a virtual gift, as opposed to a brick and mortar gift.  Jim and Bill are in the process of developing a short list of possible gifts which will sent to all classmates to see which (one or more) might be supported.  In the meantime, all classmatess are encouraged to consider giving what they can to the Class of 1960 Gift Fund.  Click here to review a variety of ways to give.

Support Parkinson’s Disease Research

 

A month or so ago an early onset Parkinson’s Disease sufferer suggested to Ed Handler’s company, The Bronx Project, that they launch a crowd funding campaign to raise awareness and funds for their drug known as “C3”.

 

As noted in the “Healh Issues” section of the Class of 1960 web site, our class has already seen several classmates succumb to this dreaded disease.

 

A widow of a retired USAF F-18 pilot had heard about Ed’s company’s research and sent a donation of $100 in 2015 in her husband’s memory, indicating that there were indeed folks out there interested in the company’s progress.

 

More recently The Cure Parkinson’s Trust June newsletter sets out exactly the scientific approach that Ed’s company is pursuing. Ed’s company will soon be submitting materials, at their suggestion, to request a major grant to support continuation of this research. See https://www.cureparkinsons.org.uk/oxidative-stress-and-parkinsons.
