I am nominating this for featured list because next in my long series of US service academy alumni FLs. Many thanks to User:Ahodges7 and User:Packerfansam for immense help on the Army alum lists. — Rlevse • Talk • 14:36, 27 March 2010 (UTC)

*Would it be possible to get a West Point photo of WWI-era graduates for the lead?
Have not seen such a photo, but I changed it to Pike, the only MOH WWI alum, I think it's better than the logo. — Rlevse • Talk • 02:30, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
That looks better. I'm still not the biggest fan of the contemporaneous hat-toss, but haven't been able to find a better one.--GrapedApe (talk) 18:12, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
Several of these names are best known for their exploits in other wars, like Eisenhower, Patton, MacArthur. Perhaps there ought to be a clarification (at the end of the 2nd paragraph in the lead?) noting that some of these men might appear in other lists?
Hmm. This is noted in inline comments in the article (view in edit mode). Haven't done this in the main text of any FLs in this series. Thinking on this I think it would be awkward and distracting to put in main text. — Rlevse • Talk • 02:30, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
After looking over a few of these, I guess that makes sense.--GrapedApe (talk) 18:02, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
The notability descriptions for Patton and MacArthur are pretty long; is there a way to trim those? Perhaps by cutting some of the things for which they are the namesake. Both men are really well known, so I don't think that we need to know (in this list) all the different things that are named after them.
Been thinking this myself, trimmed. — Rlevse • Talk • 02:18, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
Does this include all the graduates who received Medals of Honor in WWI?
There was only one, Pike, good catch, I've added him. See the MOH list in this series (alum template at bottom of list) — Rlevse • Talk • 02:18, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
No one has yet given me an adequate explanation of why the lead was just fine for so many FLs, up to just 3 weeks ago and now it's so god awful messed up. — Rlevse • Talk • 17:49, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
Regarding the parallel discussion here, I can't speak to the FLC process in the other West Point alumni lists, but I'm just stating my opinion (for what it's worth), that I think the leads of these spin-off lists should include some discussion of the sub-topic. I think we're all just trying to be helpful and to help these lists become as good as possible. --GrapedApe (talk) 18:59, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
