US Military Academy at West Point/Locate a friend


QUESTION: I am most interested in locating an old friend, Randolph (Randy) Shotwell that I remember graduated in 1967 or 1968 from West Point.  I would like to get his address and contact information if possible.  It would be great to reconnect after all of these years. Thank you for your time.  Pam

ANSWER: It's good to hear from you Pamela.  Thanks for your interest in West Point.

My primary reference is the "Register of Graduates and Former Cadets of the US Military Academy," published annually by the West Point Association of Graduates (WPAOG).  Per the "Register"  Rand Karl Shotwell graduated with the Class of 1967.  The publishers of the "Register" prohibit distribution of raw data from the "Register."  However, I do have a way of getting a "blind" message to Rand via the WPAOG.  

What I need is your email address to send to him.  After that it will be up to him if his chooses to communicate with you.  So, if you want to proceed, please submit a follow-up question including your full name and email address.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Best Regards,

I can answer questions about admissions to West Point; about the history of West Point; about how to travel to West Point, where to eat, where to stay, etc.; and about West Point`s alumni organization, the West Point Association of Graduates.


I am a 1970 Graduate of West Point. I served six years on active duty and another 8 years in the active reserve. I have been actively involved as a Field Admissions Representative for over 20 years and have participated on my Congressman's Academy Selection Panel for over 25 years. I am actively involved in West Point Alumni affairs, serving in roles both with the West Point Association of Graduates and the local alumni chapter in Annapolis, MD. I also have two sons who graduated from West Point in 1995 and 2001. Both are veterans of the Iraq War and Afghanistan War. The 1995 Grad continues to serve on Active Duty in the Army.
