Inscription.  

In honor of the first class at
the Air Force Academy
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
As the Class of 1959 fades from
the scene those who follow are
reminded of two legacies
adopted by the first class.

The falcon was selected to be
the Academy mascot as it is
a true symbol of air power
and air supremacy

The Cadet Honor Code was embraced
as the guiding principle for cadets'
lifelong standard of integrity.
It is simple and direct:

"We will not lie, cheat, or steal,
nor tolerate among us those who do."
