A Lasting Legacy: The Long Blue Line just got a little tighter thanks to the Class of 1970. The newly-established Legacy Saber Program consists of 45 restored sabers that were previously owned by graduates — one each on display within the 40 cadet squadrons, the four groups and the Cadet Wing. The sabers provide a clear and meaningful link between current cadets and graduates and enhance cadet leadership training. ►
