F-105(Thud) On the Green

Class Motto: Best in Blue

THE AMERICAN FLAG The American Flag, with the Polaris Star serving as its support, gracefully wraps around the Academy Saber showing the Class of ’82s commitment to defend our country.

THE PROP AND WINGS The Prop and Wings and the slogan, “Best in Blue,” represent the pride ’82 has in being the 24th graduating class from the Academy.

“LORD GUARD AND GUIDE” This quote is taken from the hymn sung each Sunday in the Cadet Chapel asking God to lead and protect the Men who Fly.

THE AIRCRAFT The four Thunderbirds symbolize the courage and expertise of the men whose mission is to “Fly and Fight.”
