Hillel – Jewish Warrior Weekend
About 35 Jewish Cadets from West Point, the Air Force Academy, Texas A&M, and other ROTC Cadets came together in Colorado for faith, fellowship, and fun. The weekend began with the group meeting with Lt Gen Silveria, Superintendent of the United States Air Force Academy (USAFA). Lt Gen Silveria provided an opportunity for a question and answer session and provided superb thoughts for all which included that we should be unabashedly proud of our individual services as well as that we should always go to war as a joint force, as that is when we are at our best. The group went on a tour of the Air Force Academy, had a VTC conference with Mr. Joshua London of the Jewish Institute for National Security of America (JINSA), headed up to Denver to visit the Mizel Museum and then the entire group went to enjoy bowling and some pizza. The superb student leadership of each school enabled the weekend to be a resounding success with CDTs Ben Fernquist, Sammi Ponsell, and Andrei Rosu leading the effort from West Point. The conduct of the events over the weekend demonstrates the diversity of young leaders at the Academies along with the Corps of Cadets from Texas A&M and other ROTC Cadets.
