That is not what I am saying ... a graduate of any US military academy graduates as a member of a fixed, and definitive, class. As such, the academy class is not open to interpretation and, in fact, has nothing to do with the actual date of commissioning - regardless of when an officer graduates, he does so as a member of his academy class.
Wiley graduated with the class of 1915
Talbot, though commissioned in 1918, graduated as a member of the class of 1919 ...
Binford, though he was commissioned in 1919, graduated as a member of the class of 1920 ...
Couch graduated with the class of 1921 ...
... check the individual academy registers (published each year prior to graduation), or their (USNA) website, and look it up.
In terms of service, it matters not a wit for an officers career, because an academay graduate's term of service begins with his date of entry, not his date of graduation. All the academy class, and his standing in it, does is to give him his initial flag number and seniority in grade.
