Legacy Cadets Recognized at Alumni Awards and Donor Recognition Banquet

On September 18, 2021, legacy cadets and their families were formally recognized at the Alumni Awards and Donor Recognition Banquet during Homecoming. Legacy cadets are cadets who are sons, stepsons, brothers, grandsons, step-grandsons, nephews or cousins of an MMA alum who completed at least one full year as an MMA cadet. Symbolizing their family's continued history at MMA, they were given a legacy pin.

“Since the Academy was founded in 1889, we have had a rich tradition of legacy families who have seen the positive impact that MMA has on their sons," said MMA President Brigadier General Richard V. Geraci, USA (Ret). "Recognizing our legacy cadets is an important way to honor those special families who are committed to MMA's mission, core values and rich traditions, so much so that they encourage and support their family members’ attendance.”
