"The Long Gray Line must never fail America or America will be lost."
- Gen. MacArthur

Restore USMA to a Merit-based MILITARY Academy, not a liberal arts college

"In no other profession are the penalties for employing untrained personnel so appalling or so irrevocable as in the military."
General Douglas MacArthur
"I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within."
General Douglas MacArthur
"No man is entitled to the blessings of freedom unless he be vigilant in its preservation."
General Douglas MacArthur
"Our threat is from the insidious forces working from within which have already so drastically altered the character of our free institutions--those institutions we proudly called the American way of life."
General Douglas MacArthur

MacArthur Society of West Point Graduates

We actively embrace our sacred duty as stewards of West Point's heritage. Duty compels each of us to address concerns expressed by members of the Long Gray Line.
We are united in our mission to restore West Point to its fundamental purpose as a warfighting military academy.

Issues at West Point that Concern Us

These are three problems about which many West Point graduates have expressed serious concerns.

Politicization of the Curriculum

Faculty members appear in some cases to advocate racial stereotypes, especially the promotion of Critical Race Theory and DEI which, in our view, negatively impacts morale and unit cohesion.

Erosion of
the Honor Code

The jewel in USMA's crown is at risk at being transformed into a bureaucratic mechanism subject to abuse.

Race and Gender-Based Admissions

West Point must prioritize merit and qualifications in admissions in keeping with the spirit of the recent Supreme Court decision.

"There's got to be a rescue operation for our military from this woke madness."

Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch, talking about CRT ideology being taught at West Point

Time to Stand Up & Get Informed

Be a part of a growing cadre of graduates, family members, fellow service members and supporters who want to restore West Point to its Military purpose and remove the left-wing ideology harming its mission.

General Douglas MacArthur’s Speech
Given to the Corps of Cadets at West Point

….“Duty, Honor, Country”— those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be. They are your rallying point to build courage when courage seems to fail, to regain faith when there seems to be little cause for faith, to create hope when hope becomes forlorn.

The unbelievers will say they are but words, but a slogan, but a flamboyant phrase. Every pedant, every demagogue, every cynic, every hypocrite, every troublemaker, and, I am sorry to say, some others of an entirely different character, will try to downgrade them even to the extent of mockery and ridicule.

But these are some of the things they do:

  • They build your basic character.
  • They mold you for your future roles as the custodians of the nation’s defense.
  • They make you strong enough to know when you are weak, and brave enough to face yourself when you are afraid.
  • They teach you to be proud and unbending in honest failure, but humble and gentle in success;
  • not to substitute words for action;
  • not to seek the path of comfort, but to face the stress and spur of difficulty and challenge;
  • to learn to stand up in the storm, but to have compassion on those who fall;
  • to master yourself before you seek to master others;
  • to have a heart that is clean, a goal that is high;
  • to learn to laugh, yet never forget how to weep;
  • to reach into the future, yet never neglect the past;
  • to be serious, yet never take yourself too seriously;
  • to be modest so that you will remember the simplicity of true greatness, the open mind of true wisdom, the meekness of true strength.
  • They give you a temper of the will, a quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions, a freshness of the deep springs of life, a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity, an appetite for adventure over love of ease.
  • They create in your heart the sense of wonder, the unfailing hope of what next, and the joy and inspiration of life.
  • They teach you in this way to be an officer and a gentleman. . . . . .
