Heraldry:

CLASS CREST (As depicted on the class ring)

THE FALCON: The rampart falcon, representing the individual, appears to fly from left to right. He moves from the saber, representing cadetship, toward the North Star, which has been used by navigators, pilots, and travelers for centuries to find their true heading. This depiction signifies the journey each class member will take through life, leaving his training years as cadets, and moving on a direct path towards the future. The falcon is pictured above the clouds where vision is always clear and unrestricted.

CLASS YEAR: The class year is predominant on the crest symbolizing that the whole supports the individual.

CLASS MOTTO: The falcon is carrying a banner inscribed with the Latin words "Nulli Secundus". The translation "Second to None" designates our status as the second class to graduate, but also implies that the Class of 1960 is inferior to no others.

CHAIN OF CLOUDS: Of note is the double chain of clouds, represented by their heraldic symbology around the base of the ring. This signifies the lifetime spiritual binding of the Class of 1960, as represented by the class crest, to the Academy, as represented by the (then) Air Force Academy crest on to the obverse of the ring.
