West Point Gives Us A Chance To Be A Cadet For A Day
If you have ever wanted to see what its like to be a cadet at West Point, here is your chance.
According to the Poughkeepise Journal, West Point will be offering people a chance to go through exactly what incoming cadets go through as soon as they start at West Point.
Once a new cadet arrives for their first day at the United States Military Academy at West Point they are immediately initiated through a series of grueling tasks that involve not just physical tasks but also many mental activities as well.
New cadets are processed, then they receive orders, they learn how to respond to upperclassmen, and are then instructed on how to salute and march in formation and such.
If doing any of this is something you would like to try out, West Point has announced that on Friday June 28th, community members can come to West Point and experience what it’s like to transform from a civilian to soldier, and assist upperclassmen.
West Point is giving 300 volunteers the chance to participate in a rehearsal for Reception Day(the annual event in which new cadets first report to the military academy) and if you would like to be a part of this once in a lifetime opportunity you can sign up at www.westpoint.edu and then call 845-938-8686 for more information after registration.
The rehearsal takes place between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. at West Point and participants must be 12 years or older, be in good health and not a candidate for the class of 2023.
If you are selected as a volunteer you should dress in comfortable clothing and bring a piece of luggage or a duffel bag marked with their first and last name and arrive at Eisenhower Hall no later than 8:30 a.m. on June 28th.
Proper identification will be required for entry to academy grounds and all vehicles are subject to search.
