Greetings fellow West Point graduates and concerned patriots, and welcome to the MacArthur Society website.

Col. (Ret.) Bill Prince, USMA ’70, here. I assumed the position of president of the Society on 03 January 2024. This website contains important information on our objectives. I want to reinforce several critical points.
The MacArthur Society:
My experience in hostile areas spanned 40 years beginning in Vietnam with Ranger and Special Forces units and ending (in a civilian capacity) with 11 deployments between Iraq and Afghanistan, with Somalia and El Salvador, among other garden spots, along the way. In each location, I worked closely with U.S. military personnel. In my view, we live in an increasingly dangerous world. West Point must provide the most lethal war fighters possible to meet these threats.
Unfortunately, elements in our country have pressured the Academy to entertain trendy cultural and political theories; theories which emphasize identity over merit, and so called “social justice” objectives over fighting and winning our wars. As noted above, the MacArthur Society wishes to rally West Point grads and others to help the Academy leadership promote unity over division, merit over identity.
We reject as detrimental to good order and discipline all forms of racial stereotyping to include the promotion of Critical Race Theory and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion mandates. We demand transparency from the West Point leadership, condemning the Academy’s recent penchant for violating Federal law by refusing to respond to FOIA requests, which led to humiliation for graduates when it took a lawsuit to force West Point leadership to finally tell the truth about Critical Race Theory instruction to cadets.
I recognize that some reading this will assume that those forces bent on undermining the Academy’s mission are simply too powerful to combat. In my study, over my desk, is a picture of Abraham Lincoln with the quote,

“I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have.”

Join the fight!! And to slightly paraphrase Theodore Roosevelt, “If (we) fail, at least (we) fail while daring greatly, so that (our) place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
