The Long Gray Line


Today we salute Colonel Raymond Renola, a member of the West Point Class of 1940.

The Colonel is now the oldest living graduate of the famed military college.

He celebrated his 104th birthday last week, but the pandemic made it hard for him to have a big family celebration. 

 For his birthday last year, The West Point Society arranged for Renola to get a replacement class ring for one that he lost years earlier while swimming.
