CLASS OF 2009 – Members of the U.S. Military Academy Class of 2009 march back to the barracks after taking the Oath of Allegiance at Trophy Point, West Point, N.Y., June 27, 2005. U.S. Army photo by Leslie Gordnier -- Story; More Photos; West Point Photos

Shall we try to ponder the changes in Military Strategy and warfare in general as these future officers learn their trade? What challenges will they face? What triumphs will they accomplish? How many will get the coveted commission?

I served with many officers that were West Point Graduates. Almost all attained the rank of Colonel before they retired. Quite a few were Generals. It was an honor to serve with each and every one of them. I wish the best for each of these new cadets, and hope the future is one of Peace.
