• Thank you to those whose roles help inspire cadets

    Superintendent Lt. Gen. Robert L. Caslen Jr.

    Dear West Point community,


    Although graduation and the close of the last academic year is only about a month behind us, it’s already been a very busy summer here at West Point. Our cadets are taking part in various summer training opportunities, both here and at other Army installations nationwide.

    More than 1,000 yearlings are at Camp Buckner for Cadet Field Training, where they’ll learn how to lead in a tactical environment at the team and squad level.

    We hosted more than 900 high school seniors for the annual Summer Leader Experience, giving them a taste of cadet life, and this week, 80 boys from schools in the Bronx and Harlem completed the Youth Impact Program, a two-week football camp led by our cadet-athletes that reinforces life and leadership skills, academics and athletics.
