    Maybe he'll get

    a Statue, or a Plaque, or a Wing/Bldg named after him on the Post. Is that something they do still for someone of his magnitude?

    Don't think there will be a statue. Ike, Mac, Thayer, Washington, and Kosciuszko are the major ones overlooking the grounds and the Hudson. Wing/Bldg would probably be the best bet. That Chapel is a beautiful place.

    Nice Return. Probably the best salute that officer ever received.

    Connecticut Millitia first occupied the site in 1778. Other than the Charter Oak we have that going for us.
