Duty, Honor, Country

George Coleman

I deceided to come to West Point because of several reasons:

  1. The military training
  2. The great education
  3. The motivated teachers
  4. The small classes
  5. The commission
  6. The pride people have for us here

As you can see my mother had to go out into the wilderness and think about the incredible step that I took this year. My decision will affect the rest of my life.


During the summer we were required to memorize different aspects of military life. Included in our summer knowledge were many historical speeches and modern statements about the academy and the military. While memorizing this I found a piece of knowledge that inspired me. The Code of Conduct.
