Dear Fellow Alumni,

This past weekend, I attended the Parents Weekend/Recognition Parade
Festivities. While the Corps strength may be lower than anticipated this
year, its heart and spirit showed through in greater numbers than were on
the field.

I was pleased to see that the Garrison Review following Chapel was well
performed and it was clear that COL Thomas W. Medearis, VFMAC Œ66, our
Commandant of Cadets, had a very strong hand in shaping this performance.
Although this was the Corps' first public parade, you could see that the
Cadets and Tactical Department worked hard to show the audience they were
ready for the task.

I am pleased to report that in some ways, this parade looked much better
than the Garrison Review on Alumni Weekend this past April.  Indeed, this
Parade was reminiscent of past Reviews, and included a greater adherence to
the traditions and customs one expects at a Valley Forge parade.

The Corps of Cadets and Tactical Officers should feel proud of this first
Parade of the season, and I am certain that Alumni will feel equally-proud
at what they will see on the Parade Field -- to that end, I hope that you
have a chance to stop by for a Parade and give your support to the Cadets.

Yours in Service,

John Rapp '74C
VFMAC Alumni Association
