Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
Ride to Cure Diabetes
On 3 November 2001, Michael & Jill Shapiro will participate in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) International Ride to Cure Diabetes event. It is a 105-mile bike ride through Death Valley, California dedicated to raising money for the JDRF. Their adorable son Zachary faces the daily challenge of living with Juvenile Diabetes.

A group of our classmates has been active in creating the Paladin Foundation--a non-profit organization providing scholarship opportunities and financial grants for educational programs to benefit the children of current and former members of the United States Army in order to assist their pursuit of academic excellence and foster the development of the next generation of American civil, business, and military leaders.

Are you interested in encouraging high school students or other candidates in applying to West Point? Join several of our classmates who are currently active in the Military Academy Liaison Officer program. You need not be on active/reserves/guard duty to participate.
This is an exciting time to serve as a MALO or a Field Force Representative!!! The year-long Bicentennial celebration provides many unique ways to inform the public about USMA and the other service academies. To date, there have already been 2 different programs on various television channels about West Point and her history. The Discovery Channel aired three hours of its special: "On The Inside" which showed life at all of the various service academies. The History Channel aired a special: "Modern Marvels-West Point". Please keep your eyes and ears open for upcoming television specials.
For those MALOs/Admissions Participants out there: an excellent resource for USMA information is: www.west-point.org This site provides you with good information for prospective USMA candidates/West Point parents. If you're interested in serving as a MALO, please contact the Admissions Office or check out the USMA Admission's Office website.
As a MALO, you can even retire with the reserves. Please contact the Admissions Office for more details.
We hope you enjoy your visit to our class website. Don't forget to visit the message boards and see what your classmates are up to these days. Feel free to post your own update as well! Simply follow the link to MESSAGE BOARDS and add your comments under the appropriate topic.
BEAT NAVY and God Bless!!!
