The Band of Gold
Many cadets within the Long Grey Line of our institution matriculated with a steadfast vision to one day wear the band of gold. The unique ring would permanently bond them as brothers and sisters in the same community, and each of them would travel the world with equal values of honor and duty and civility. Unfortunately, for reasons beyond the control of a few of these fine cadets, the financial resources needed have presented an unforeseeable challenge to attain their class rings…until now.
The Ltc. Harvey
M. Dick Group will rise to such occasions and annually purchase the earned
bands of gold for a qualified number of recipients. Just as the namesake of this foundation
frequently gave, which earned him the nickname of The Ring Man to those cadets in need, so will his legacy in order
to maintain his charitable tradition. Though gifting the ring is the primary
objective of the foundation, it will not limit available financial resources to
the community of cadets who find themselves in need for family commitments
beyond the walls of our institution. In return, the foundation simply asks that
the recipients contribute resources when possible to uphold the generosity of
Ltc. Harvey Dick’s family and the founding members of the group have pledged the initial contributions into the Fund, and ask that those who feel this is a worthy cause do the same alongside us. The group will become a 501(c)3 in the near future but firmly believes the resources needed to accomplish our goals outweigh the immediate need for a tax deduction today.
