I can answer questions about admissions to West Point; about the history of West Point; about how to travel to West Point, where to eat, where to stay, etc.; and about West Point`s alumni organization, the West Point Association of Graduates.
I am a 1970 Graduate of West Point. I served six years on active duty and another 8 years in the active reserve. I have been actively involved as a Field Admissions Representative for over 20 years and have participated on my Congressman's Academy Selection Panel for over 25 years. I am actively involved in West Point Alumni affairs, serving in roles both with the West Point Association of Graduates and the local alumni chapter in Annapolis, MD. I also have two sons who graduated from West Point in 1995 and 2001. Both are veterans of the Iraq War and Afghanistan War. The 1995 Grad continues to serve on Active Duty in the Army.
Bachelor of Science, US Military Academy, 1970 Master of Science (Computer Science), The Johns Hopkins University, 1980
West Point is a national treasure. Its physical beauty and history are legendary. It is here that the standards for character and integrity in the US Army, and perhaps for all of America, are rooted. West Points enduring Honor Code dictates that a Cadet will not lie, cheat, steal, nor tolerate those who do.
I hope to increase the public awareness of West Point as a vital national treasure and to promote consideration of military service and careers by more of America's youth. West Point's motto: Duty, Honor, Country stands as a goal to which all Americans can aspire.
West Point is the premier leader development instution in the world. While leadership is critical in our society, little of it is taught in the typical university. The 47 month West Point experience is a leadership laboratory which brings in top high school, college, and soldier talent, and commissions officers committed to a lifetime of service to the nation in both the Army and civil sectors.
Has the admission of women to West Point since 1976 been a boon or a bane to West Point and the Army? I strongly believe that it has been a boon! Women hold key positions and roles in the Army, hence they need to be included in the mainstream of leadership training at West Point.
