Who parked that tank there?
And how about the Stryker, Apache, Chinook or the Patriot missile defense system, for that matter?
Plenty of hardware accompanied more than 200 active-duty Soldiers representing 16 Army branches during the Department of Military Instruction’s Branch Week Sept. 6-12.
More than just static displays, Branch Week is about the people. Cadets had ample opportunities to chat up officers and NCOs from all career fields ranging from Infantry and Field Artillery to Aviation and Adjutant General.
Whether it was in Central Area, the Cadet Mess or Eisenhower Hall, a variety of forums allowed cadets to get all the information they would need to make these informed decisions about branching.

The Army Women’s Cross Country team fell in its dual meet with Cornell 16-47 at the West Point Golf Course Sept. 12.
Junior Lindsay Gabow led the way for the Black Knights, taking fifth overall with a 5K time of 17:46.36.
“Two of our top three runners sat out today with injury, so we had only one runner returning from our last race, Lindsay Gabow, and to split up Cornell’s front pack like that was really impressive and I was very happy with that,” assistant coach Shannon O’Brien said. “Last year, Cornell put 12 in front of our first runner, so to have Lindsay do a minute better than two weeks ago here was great.”
Sophomore Brianna Miller was next to cross the line for the women, taking 19th place with a time of 18:41.30. Read More
