Welcome to the AFC website.
What an amazing weekend. For those of you who traveled to West Point to attend, no matter what the distance, THANK YOU!
We had a record turnout of both golfer and attendees. I'm sure I sum it up for everyone that the entire event was great. It started with a dinner on Thursday night that was to have GEN Peter Dawkins speak, but due to personal issues he could not attend. Attendees were not disappointed, as Coach Jim Young spoke in his place.
Friday was our usual Welcome Back gathering in the Kimsey Center and what a group. Lots of new attendees and lots of old friends.
Saturday was golf in the overly warm and humid Hudson Valley. Players began at 7:00 AM and the last group got off the golf course around 7:00 PM.
The Saturday Night Banquet, again in the Kimsey Center, was attended by roughly 300 former Army Football players, Coach Jim Young and his wife June Young, the 59th Superintendent of the United States Military Academy, LTG Robert Caslen, and Army Football Coach Jeff Monken.
GEN Caslen and Coach Monken both spoke to the group, receiving numerous rounds of applause and cheers.
The evening ended with GEN Caslen, Coach Monken, and Coach Young giving the group a very enthusiastic Rocket and the crowd showed their appreciation.
The Committee would like to again thank all of you who attended. Knowing how much you all enjoy this event makes all the hard work worthwhile.
We hope to see you all next year. (But don't expect Bob Kinney to do your 4somes.)
Dick Hall, Bob Kinney and Pauline Mariany
