How are leadership roles at West Point such as First Captain selected? Is it based solely upon class rank, or is it voted on by the corps, or is it by some other means?
That's the hope. Didn't quite work out for me with my TAC and I ended out of my company for my firstie year working a job I didn't necessarily want at all especially as I was a captain for my team as well. Looking back though, while I never would've picked it, I learned a ton. Sometimes we don't know what's best for us hahaCadets also have some say...they make it known if they're interested or not. For example, my DS is captain of his team. He does not want leadership in his company, as his team requires much of his time. His TAC is aware of this and hopefully will respect it.
