4th of July at West Point


Tier I have teary eyes
We were dropping off our 2020 at the Thayer turnaround after spending time together parent weekend. It was right before they strike the colors for the evening. I was busy getting junk out of the trunk we had bought in town for him when I saw him snap to attention in the direction of the colors and salute. That picture stays with me.
same weekend we were walking in the Cadet area with our son, and were by the library when he stood at attention and saluted for the same thing. Was tremendous. Just don't get that at any other college.
