Tradition is a hallmark of the U.S. Military Academy.

For an institution that was founded in 1802, it’s inevitable that customs, traditions and superstition work their way into the normal activities of those who attend, work and live at the Academy.  One of the great traditions embedded in West Point Football is the Gen. George C. Marshall plaque located on the southeast entrance to Michie stadium. On it, the plaque quotes General Marshall, who was Chief of Staff during World War II, as saying “I want an officer for a secret and dangerous mission. I want a West Point Football Player”.  The Army Athletics web site identifies the significance of this quote to their team as the embodiment of the caliber of Army officers produced by the football program.

“At every game, home or away, Army Football players will take the field after placing their hands as they pass by the bronze Marshall Plaque which is held by an Army officer with affiliations to the team.  It was only an ordinary statement made during the busy, everyday activities at the Pentagon; but it was a remark that came at a very crucial period of World War II, and one that was destined to join other well-remembered phrases which at a particular times, supplied the needed inspiration to accomplish a task.”  See Army Football's own video on the Marshall Plaque, here.
