Summary
The United States Military Academy at West Point is one of America's oldest and most revered institutions. Founded in 1802, its first and only mission is to prepare young men-and, since 1976, young women-to be leaders of character for service as commissioned officers in the United States Army. West Point's success in accomplishing that mission has secured its reputation as the foremost leadership-development institution in the world. An Academy promotional poster says it this way: "At West Point, much of the history we teach was made by people we taught." Carved from Granite>
