That is not what it says. There is a period there. In 1980, 62 of those 119 graduated. That is a pretty high drop out rate.

On October 8, 1975, the President of the United States signed into law a bill directing that women would be admitted to America ’s service academies. The law stated that:
“. . . the Secretaries of the military departments concerned shall take such action as may be necessary and appropriate to ensure that (1) female individuals shall be eligible for appointment and admission to the service academy concerned, beginning in the calendar year 1976, and . . .”
