The Class of 2018 celebrated Yearling Winter Weekend Feb. 6 at Washington Hall. The wintry tradition recognizes the first three completed semesters of the sophomore class as it celebrates its first formal banquet.
Class of 2018 President, Cadet Christopher Bingham, addressed his class as he reminisced the memories they have made together thus far.
“Battles, we started this journey more than a year and half ago,” Bingham began. “Our being here tonight is further proof and celebration of our perseverance as individuals, but more importantly, as a class.”
Bingham spoke about their Cadet Field Training this past summer and the runback with Sgt. Maj. of the Army Daniel A. Dailey. He also recalled meeting Army Chief of Staff Gen. Raymond Odierno. Read More
