On July 16th, 70 years ago, J.D Salinger's book "The Catcher in the Rye" was published by Little, Brown and Co.

Did you know that Salinger was a Cadet at Valley Forge Military Academy?

During his time at the Academy, he displayed a much greater interest in acting than in writing. However, during his senior year, he served as the literary editor of the yearbook, Crossed Sabres '36. Which led him with the intention to write for the New Yorker Magazine.

In his, book, he used VFMA as a model for Pencey Prep, Holden Caulfield's alma mater in "The Catcher in the Rye." Salinger served in the US Army during WWII and was alleged to have carried chapters of the "Catcher in the Rye" with him when he laded on D-Day.

Former Alumni and Captain of the Valley Forge Military Academy Defensive Football Team, Chris Doleman '81 TAPS is the man whose advice put Alumni '02 Larry Fitzgerald on the path to the NFL.

Larry Fitzgerald has played 17 seasons in the NFL and given back to communities domestically and internationally. We are proud of the path that Cadet Fitzgerald has forged. During his time at Valley Forge Military Academy, Cadet Fitzgerald had 35 catches for 420 yards and seven touchdowns in six games. We knew he was destined for the NFL.

Current Athletic Director, Michael Muscella, and former Assistant Football Coach noted  "I saw him and I said, 'This is what guys who play on Sundays look like,' Muscella said. "His uniform, his physique, you could just tell that he was different."

"Fitzgerald told McManaman in an interview, “I can’t tell you how thankful I am for my Valley Forge Military Academy experience. … There’s no way I’d be here if I hadn’t gone there.”
"And, if it hadn’t been for Chris Doleman, he might not have gone there at all."

We are glad he did. #Couragehonorconquer #Alumni #NFL
