• New cadet candidates begin challenge on R-Day

    Approximately 1,270 cadet candidates reported to the U.S. Military Academy Monday for the West Point Class of 2019 Reception Day. During Reception Day, the new cadets undergo administrative processing, are fitted with their initial issue of military clothing, received haircuts, medical and physical evaluations, and begin their first lessons in marching, military courtesy and discipline as they began the process of becoming West Point cadets and future U.S. Army officers.  Photo by Staff Sgt.

    Approximately 1,270 cadet candidates arrived at West Point Monday to begin their journey to join the likes of Dwight Eisenhower, George Patton, Douglas MacArthur and other members of the Long Gray Line who became leaders and officers of character.

    The new cadets commit to 47 months of intense academic studies, military and physical training, take an oath of allegiance to the Army and get involved in at least one sport; all for the purpose of becoming trained Army leaders to follow in the footsteps of those who have gone before them.

    The new cadets began in the early morning at Eisenhower Hall joining family and friends for a briefing by officers in charge of companies and battalions and have 60 seconds to say their goodbyes before the cadet cadre march them to the waiting buses. Read More
