Grads Honor the Fallen at Arlington National Cemetery
In May, many West Point Grads volunteered to participate in a service project called “The Honor Project” during Memorial Day Weekend. Grads, Veterans, and civilians traveled to the Arlington National Cemetery and laid out flags in front of the gravestones of nearly 4,000 fallen service members as a special request from their loved ones during May 29 -31, 2021. The West Point Grads who attended the event also visited the gravestones of West Point classmates who were buried at Arlington National Cemetery. West Point Grads, John DiNome ’81, Charles Chalfont ’94, Bridget Altenburg ’95, Bridgette Bell ’04, Mary Tobin ’03, Janaia Nash ’03, Chief Program Officer, Tracy Tawiah ’03, Kafi Joseph ’03, and Cadet Nathaniel Miseli 23 volunteered at the event.
The Honor Project was started this year after COVID-19 prevented many families from visiting in person last year during the pandemic.
