A TIME TO ASSEMBLE

COVID Times are tough. The normal pressures of life, big work, and heavy responsibilities feel weightier in these days of isolation, Zoom marathon calls, and social distancing. Recently we began asking ourselves, “How can we help?”. While we can’t make the future more certain, we decided that we can create a place to connect people, spark innovation, and gain valuable perspective.

The concept is simple. Ten USMA grads connect for three days on a farm in South Carolina. We connect in organized and casual interactions; around the table and the fire; over coffee and walks through the pasture. Each person brings a personal (or work-related) challenge which they present to the group. We all lean in and help each other navigate the way ahead. We ask questions, advise and network. We all leave with deeper connections, bigger ideas, and clearer vision. We do what the Long Gray Line has always done – we grip hands and sustain each other through uplifting camaraderie and genuine partnership with the mission of propelling each other despite the worst 2020 has to give.

HOSTED BY USMA CLASSMATES

We drew together during a common struggle at the Academy and, later, as soldiers in defense of our Nation at war. Our bond runs deep as graduates, soldiers, leaders, and friends. Who better to be around during this time of global crisis than each other? Retreat with our team below and other classmates as we set a course toward a brighter future.
