Annapolis in Anne Arundel County, Maryland — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Class of 1956 Memorial Plaza
The Class of 1956 takes great pleasure in having its name associated with this majestic entrance to the stadium. This plaza opens the doors to an edifice that rightly honors and memorializes all who have gone before us, and those who follow us, in service to our country. It truly stands as a peaceful setting to contemplate and remember those who are honored inside these stadium walls—especially those who gave their last full measure of devotion.
Erected by U.S. Naval Academy, Class of 1956.
