WHAT IS GRADLINKS?
Gradlinks is a joint meeting of all Service Academy graduates and other commissioned officers to provide a forum specifically designed to facilitate business, professional education, and networking opportunities with other graduates in the Central Florida area. This is done by holding periodic events (currently we are planning two of these events a year), where these activities are the principal focus. It is not intended to replace any of the current activities of the ongoing chapters and societies. Gradlinks is based on the belief that a deep bond of mutual respect exists between officers of all branches of the service by reason of their many shared experiences, interests, ethics, and values.
Through Gradlinks, participants benefit from this special bond with enhanced business, professional, and social contacts, by assistance with career transitions, and by highly rewarding inter-service camaraderie.
R.S.V.P (yes or no) by Wednesday, March 19th. Notification of future events will be by e-mail only, therefore if you can’t attend please respond with your e-mail address, branch of service and commissioning source:
Eric J. Reinhold, CFP®, MBA, APMA® - USNA ‘88
Associate Vice President

A two-way starter for state champion Salpointe (Ariz.), Weaver had sent out a highlight video to Army more than a month ago.
A coaching change was delaying Army's response, he thought.
As signing day approached, Weaver was set on exploring other options.
Finally, on Tuesday night, Army rang. Assistant coach Sean Saturnio was offering Weaver a chance to play Division I football for the Black Knights.
"The first thing I thought about when he called me was a guy crawling under a barbed-wire fence in the mud and the rain," said Weaver, who played defensive end and guard for 14-0 Salpointe. "It was crazy to have a Division I offer in front of me. If they didn't call, I would have been stuck at a Division II school or walking on at a Division I school."Read more...
