The PMAAAI has more than 9,000 members who have served well in the military, police, other law enforcement agencies, government, corporate organizations and other leadership and management positions.

PBGen Ludan urged the members of the graduating class to always display the Academy motto of "Courage, Integrity and Loyalty" wherever they may be. "May you be an inspiration that shall bring to the military profession a strong sense of purpose, pride and personal satisfaction that comes from meaningful service." Please keep the fire of the Honor Code flaming within your hearts", Ludan said.

Moving on, he shared his personal experience" When I graduated in 1992, I was one of the proudest young men of this country, thanks to our upperclassmen who worked hard to build the undisputable reputation of a PMAer. However, as I spent more time in the service, I realized that being an alumnus of this prestigious institution is not just a title or a privilege to be squandered.

"Your PMA graduation is both a profound gift and a sacred obligation, our nation has invested in you and entrusts you with demonstrating the values we expect of our leaders. Now more than ever, we need honorable men and women to lead our countrymen.

The Long Gray Line
The Long Gray Line

I am confident that, In the midst of the trials and tribulations you went through during the course of your training, you will prove equal to the demands and challenges of your profession, an achievement that shall rightly entitle you to the honor and distinction of a PMA graduate and Cavalier." He further added.
