1. Class of 1956 Memorial Plaza Marker
Inscription.  Given in recognition of all members of the Class of 1956 who served our nation so faithfully in Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force careers; in industry, government, and the professions; and to our wives and families whose continuing support was so vital.

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.
