Class of 2025 will March Back from Lake Frederick
New cadets descend on Lake Frederick for a historical experience that has not been conducted since 2009 that will forever bond the class before they march back to the academy for acceptance into the Corps of Cadets.
“They will wake up early, they will march, they will sweat, they will work as a team, they will persevere, and they will become stronger and more confident,” said Major Travis Taggart, operations officer for Cadet Basic Training. “Throughout our nation’s history, the U.S. Military Academy has educated and trained cadets to lead, fight, and win our nation’s wars. For the Class of 2025, that journey begins now.”
