The U.S. Military Academy recently announced the Cadet Summer Training key leadership positions.

“During their last three years at West Point, these cadets have demonstrated strong character and tremendous leadership potential. They have exemplified our values of Duty, Honor, and Country, and this summer I look forward to seeing their positive impact,” said Brig. Gen. Curtis Buzzard, commandant of cadets.

Military training will be conducted under the highest standards of safety that include facial coverings, social distancing, and COVID-19 testing in order to safeguard the health and welfare of all cadet candidates, families, and community members.
Drills are conducted to simulate the physical and mental challenges cadets will face when they become officers in the U.S. Army where they will be leading in a COVID-19 environment. Realistic training has inherent risks and the safety and welfare of the entire West Point community is the academy’s top priority.
Training opportunities for the cadets include infantry operations, artillery firing, weapons training, aviation operations, military engineering projects, training in field communications, demolitions, and survival skills techniques.
