Nearly 300 personnel from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point traveled to USAG Fort Hamilton in Brooklyn, New York, to participate in West Point Day at Fort Hamilton April 18. The day’s activities included a breakfast, a West Point admissions and information brief, a cadet parade through the streets of Fort Hamilton with a formal pass in review and demonstrations by West Point Cadet Clubs. The cadet club demonstrations allowed for members of the community to not only receive information on the clubs, but also take part in the demonstrations as a participant, giving them the unique insight on the cadet experience. The event allowed West Point to highlight the academy’s educational opportunities and military tradition to members of the local New York City area, further cementing the bond between the people of New York and the world’s pre-eminent leader development and academic institution.
