PORT WASHINGTON, NY — A USMA Cadet from Port Washington was honored this month at the New York State Capitol for West Point Day.

On Thursday, March 24, New York State Sen. Anna Kaplan (D-North Hills) welcomed USMA Cadet Christopher Ricciardi to Albany and presented him with a citation in recognition of his devotion to the United States.

West Point Day is the Senate's annual tradition when leaders and cadets from West Point travel to the Capitol for a special Senate session, according to Kaplan's office. It's followed by a reception that honors them for their service, contributions, and achievements.
