I've been reading other threads here about sponsors at the other Service Academies. It sounds like there have been so many wonderful sponsor-cadet/mid relationships. As a parent or cadet, past/present, what has your experience been with the sponsor program at West Point? My cadet doesn't have one anymore (sponsor deployed) and there was never any interaction b/t the sponsor and DS even before deployment. I'm envious of these other great sponsor relationships and was wondering if it is not as big a deal at West Point or if DS's situation is unusual.
